Ch 4 Page 3

Unlike Midori, Grey passes as a non-mod. And he prefers it that way. ____________________________________________________________________________________________________ PS- Centralia 2050 Vol. 1 is now available on Kickstarter! Don't miss out, there's some awesome reward goodies available in addition to the book!

  1. “you can’t see” or “I won’t show you”? ^^

    I have blue eyes and brown hair without being genetically modified, so his looks wouldn’t be that much of a tip-off.

    Love her suggesting that his attitude was a genemod. <3 ^^

    1. True, it’s not impossible, though bright blue eyes+black hair is a rarer combination than brown hair+blue eyes.

      Scientists are still trying to locate the sarcasm and grouchiness genes, so his attitude is 100% natural!

      1. I also like her expression (which I just noticed) when he told her not to be a perv for thinking of asking what she was apparently thinking of asking. ^^

        I love this comic. <3

        1. Bahaha yes! Though who can know for sure what pops up in Midori’s mind… XD

          So happy you love it, that just makes my day to hear!

      2. I have to point to the so called “black Irish” on this one, although those traits are uncommon even among those of Irish heritage and Grey doesn’t look at all like he’s Irish. Having blue eyes, even with brown-eyed parents wouldn’t be an absolute give-away (green-eyed parents, maybe), since both could (conceivably, if not actually) carry the recessive gene. He would definitely have an easier time hiding his genemod status, given what we (the readers) know, than Midori & her green hair.
        I have to wonder, like @Delta-v, about the nature of “something you can’t see” although I’m split between “hidden inside my skin” or “not observable by any visual sense.” He said “can’t” but he’s being rather forthcoming, leading me to believe that he’s not intending to withhold the information but that it’s just not visible. Which, of course, could describe anything from a more efficient metabolism to heightened intellect to an extra kidney. I suppose we’ll see with the next page…

        1. You’re right about that, it’s uncommon, but not a dead give-away. Grey intentionally uses that to his advantage; he doesn’t enjoy the unwanted– possibly negative– attention that comes with being a gen-mod.

          As for the other mods, we’ll find out soon!

  2. Frames 2 and 4 are so perfect xD

    Good luck with the kickstarter!

    1. Glad you like those XD It’s nice to show these two finally getting along… in their own weird way.

      And thank you so much!! So far so good!

  3. Noooooooo I’m caught up DX
    Sooo glad he made the clarification for her not to be a perv. (Thanks so much for keeping your comic clean, btw! That’s… unfortunately rare these days???)
    This is SUPER intriguing and I can’t WAIT to see what happens! I haven’t read a good quality well-paced mystery like this in a while! You really know how to leave us hanging while feeding us the info we need at the right time!
    I’m really intrigued to learn more about Grey. All things considered, it does seem a little odd that he would just drop everything to help this random amnesiac girl. I guess something about her search really struck a cord with him; like he said, maybe he just wants to hope that SOMEONE will succeed where he failed. Still, I’m curious about where he works and what was going on in his life – or perhaps there wasn’t really ANYTHING going on in his life, and that’s why he can afford to simply dive into this adventure with her.
    Regardless, I really like how they’ve built up this solid friendship. It doesn’t feel like the cliche sudden romance thing but a real bond formed around a mutual goal and a sense of trust in each other. And I like how Midori is drawing out his better side; you can tell he puts on a front of da ‘tudes but she seems to bring out his lighter side. ^^
    Really enjoying this so far! Can’t wait to find out what Grey’s other gene mod is and find out more of what’s happening! =Dd

    1. So glad you’re liking the comic!! I greatly enjoy reading all your comments! :> Yeah, haha, aside from language and violence I try to keep it pretty clean. I dislike random fanservice, I find it cheapens the story and exploits the characters in a way that makes me uncomfortable. There’s a time and place for everything, and shoehorning that stuff in at the wrong time can be very off-putting.

      Glad the mysteries are keeping you intrigued, too! What I can say about Grey for now is, yeah, he sees a similar cause in Midori’s search for Weiss, and he also feels some camaraderie in her being another gen-mod. I’m really happy to hear you’re enjoying the friendship growing between these two, and I hope you’ll like what’s to come in the future pages!

  4. Came for the art, stayed for the story.
    The cyberpunk vibe is real 🙂

    1. Awesome, so happy you’re liking the comic! And the cyberpunk-iness 😀 Hope you like the coming updates!!

  5. I keep coming back to this and each time I read it I like panel 4 more. Grey does have an attitude and may have a tendency to intimidate people (though he’s actually a nice guy if you can get through his shell). Midori is NOT one to be easily intimidated, however, and she has gotten through. Their ‘conflict’ really is looking more like playful banter at this point. It looks like they’re going to be good friends (if not more)… eventually.

    As The Lovin’ Spoonful said: “find yourself a lover who can be your best friend”.

    1. Yes! I looked forward to this scene to show the difference in their relationship compared to their first meeting (which, funny enough, was also in a diner setting). It’s much easier to have such playful banter when the walls start coming down. :>

  6. Their faces in panel 4. I love that soooo much.

    1. It certainly encapsulates the nature of their friendship XD

  7. I found this comic when i should have been sleeping at about 11:30 last night and got to this page at about 2-3am-ish and i dont regret it a single bit. This is probably now on the list of my top 5 favourite webcomics (Just below grrlpower and above discord) and i look forward to the next page!

    1. Aaa I’m so happy you’re liking the comic and honored to be among your top favorites!! I apologize for disrupting your sleep schedule :’D hope you enjoy the next page!!

  8. They gene-modded his eye color?

    Man, designer babies of this world are PETTY. You would think you’d do things like intelligence, longevity, health, athleticism, resistance to diseases… but no, it’s stuff like green hair and blue eyes.
