Hey I had this comic on my fav list but just read the whole comic today and I got to the latest part and I would just like to say I think the gay relationship did not add anything to the story I am not a homo phobe but it just felt to me like you were just shipping them together because you could.like he could of still been gay but not in love with chip so it does not distract to much from the main story.and it kinda feels like a forced relationship as well than any thing else I only make my characters gay if they are rely flat and 2 dimensional and I never make them have a relationship with any of the main characters the most I would do is a crush on a one of the main characters so it does not distract from story your telling. Plus what happened to chips brothers bad assness we were introduced to him as such a bad ass but now he is geting stepped over by every one I know he is sorry but give the guy some dignity at least it's just geting embracing watching him be pushed around like trash. Seeing he is one of the most 3 dimensional characters in the comic. This is not a rant just advice on what to improve but keep up the good work I rely love the art style and the story just try to improve the characters a little :3

@Guest: this is how i read your comment here: "i am not a homophobe but (insert an essay's worth of homophobia)"

98% of the characters in this comic are queer in some way and if you don't like that then this comic ain't for you

Nah pffft going to continue to read the comic any way the story hooked me to much to let it go. Not going to let the minor stuff about it ruin what is a very good story. But the main point is will Louie's bad ass side return? I don't want him to be mean but just more confident. :)

@Guest: ok but the "minor" stuff you're talking about is actually really major to us. hello, nice to meet you. both of us, as in, the two creators of skeptical, are queer. we also feel that all kinds of representation are VERY important and by no means "minor", even if it doesn't always directly affect the story itself.

and then here you are, saying that a portion of this representation we're trying to include could potentially "ruin" the story? that is honestly a really horrible thing to say. especially when the only representation our friends and ourselves get in popular media is awful stereotypes, or, the characters you previously said that you like to create: flat 2d side characters.

your comments have been very backhanded; you're directly insulting us(you can say you're "not a homophobe" all you want, but that doesn't change the fact that you have very much been so in your comments), but you seem to think by complimenting us at the same time/changing the subject back to louie's specific development that it'll all cancel out. it doesn't work that way.

i can't forcibly change how you think, but i can only hope that you seriously think about the consequences of your words and realize exactly just what you've said here.

I am very sorry I did not mean for my comments to come off as hatefull and mean that is not what I planned at all. I am very sorry if I have offended the both of you in any way. Do what ever you want with your comic rely I still think that skeptical is a beatiful and one of the most "unique" comics I have come across. And I see it was wrong of me to tell you how to represents your characters your just trying to represent them in a good light and here I am trying to make you change that by making it effect the story. Well I guess I have done enough damage and I rely am sorry reading what you said made me notice what a total retard I sounded and I did not mean any of this to be seen as an attack to you if it has I am humbly apologetic to the two of you.

@Guest: thank you for apologizing; it is appreciated, and i'm really glad that you were able to look back and notice where you made your mistakes. i really hope you learned a permanent lesson from this whole ordeal, and while i know i came off as harsh, don't be afraid to approach me if you have any questions regarding anything. i'd be happy to answer!

@Rakewn: hey there! I know this conversation is probably old, but I wanted to comment on it! This person isn't totally in the wrong! A relationship can be forced and distracting in a book, no matter the sexual orientation. Not a homophone here!(trust me, im bi)
Its the same thing as a token black character; some people force them in to become relatable or to gain the popularity of a certain group.
I don't think that's the case for this comic, though! They didn't have the whole "immediate romance" thing, nor do they distract too much from the story so far. I don't know if you were already aware of these problems, but I thought I'd give my input!

I realize this is LONG after the fact, and it's already resolved. But I disagree with the "tips" that the previous "Guest" commenter stated way up above.
I ADORE Chip and Ellis's relationship. And I really appreciate the added dimension and characterization of Louie. I feel like it makes him much more relatable. And I'm REALLY intrigued about Chip and Louie's human past and whatever got them involved with the witch or whatever she is. xD ANYWAYS, I just wanted to say that I think this story (up to where I've read so far) has been perfect, and I don't think anything should be changed. <3 And don't let stupid comments get you down!
