I don't remember if I've posted this before or not, but this series reminds me a bit of the book "The Phantom Tollbooth".

hahahaha are these all puns?
I'm guessing that the person RGM is talking about controls or travells through time or somthing.

No...Hate is the "she" from earlier. Time is the "he" from this page. This whole entire thing is puns talking about their relationship. ;)

Apparently Hate is really possessive, and Time can't keep secrets. They also both seems to have a lot of relationship issues.

whats the difference between TOBY and TOBy? Not sure what that sounds like unless he can break the fourth wall and read his name.
Guest 1st Feb 2014, 10:54 PM edit delete reply
the name TOBY is pronounced as such, but TOby is To-Buy, thats how I see it atleast
Guest 15th Jun 2014, 11:15 AM edit delete reply
I read it as Tobby and Toby.
Guest 15th Dec 2014, 3:40 AM edit delete reply
I think TOby's name is pronounced "To Be", taking the "be" sound from the end of the name Toby. Therefore, the quandary we now have is TOby or not TOby, that is the question. B)

I definitely think that TOby is text-aware... Hero and RGB speak only in capital letters. Maybe TOby is half-gone and there's someone who speaks only in lower-case...

Just doing a little re-read and I can't help but wonder is RGB talking about a soap opera?

Haha, those eyes :-P

"Besides, she's so possesive." If "she" is Hate, then... "The Property of Hate," anyone?

This page has so many secrets when you read it, play on words. You see so much more reading the pages backward

It makes me laugh that TOby's speech bubbles are upper case and lower case, while RGB's are all uppercase. I also wonder if it's actually possible for him to say TOby's name right due to that.

Really nice creative touch! Not only does it mean you can distinguish between which character is talking but it also seems like their speech bubbles and text colour sort of fit with their personality. I love it.
Guest 16th Jun 2014, 7:53 PM edit delete reply
I'm loving TOby right now

It's Time, to stop saying time.

Although i'm not 100% sure, it seems to me like TOby's speech bubbles have brighter greens where he would emphasize words. I love all of the tiny, almost unnoticeable details in this story <3

Hate is SUPER possessive. RGB is talking about how Time might run out on the relationship this weird. Wonder if Hate considers Time to be her property? Oh, I hope not...dang, they have a lot of relationship issues. :/

Another thought:
Here's what RGB's talking about explained using fake made up random names in replacement of Time and Hate.

Time = Tyler
Hate = Hailey

Mind you, Tyler does give away secrets so easily. Tyler and Tyler again...but it's like they say-tyler will tell, you know. I wouldn't wonder if Hailey ended up killing Tyler. Mind you, it might be difficult-Hailey heals all wounds. Still, Tyler was always on her side...I suppose it's only a matter of Tyler before he forgives her. Besides, Hailey is so possessive-no doubt she'll be keeping track of Tyler. Or perhaps it will be different this time? Maybe Tyler will finally run out on her.

TOby - Why do you always have to do this?

RGB - Well, it's about Tyler.

Me: In summary:
Tyler can't keep secrets, and has a mutant healing factor. He's having relationship issues with Hailey, and it seems to be a repetitive thing. Hailey is super possessive and apparently has some issues with Tyler related to his inability to keep secrets. Hailey's probably stalking Tyler.Tyler is always there for Hailey, though. Maybe Tyler will finally leave Hailey? Who knows.

This whole page has reminded me very happily of The Phantom Tollbooth
