Please reblog to spread the TH love!

I'm very much new to this comic, but... my questions are, about "Trying Human", have you got this idea from alien-themed movies such as "Close Encounters Of A Third Kind"? And did EBE1 hate humanity just because of Phillis' death? Well, I'd love to draw a fanart of your comic, it's because I'm new to it.

I actually got the idea of TH from alien abduction stories that got really big in the 80’s when I was a kid.  Love that stuff!

Also, EBE1 is more like disgusted with everyone that isn’t Phillis, so he doesn’t necessarily hate them. :D

Hi! I have a couple questions I could probably figure out the answer to if I looked, but I was wondering a. if Greys blink, and b. if the main characters' eye/badge colors are shared with any other Greys?

A)  Greys don’t blink; they don’t have eye lids.  Some abductees report a movement, undulation, or sparkle in the eyes (a ‘something’) but this could just be the effects of telepathy.

B)  No, the Greys all have their own unique color and badges in TH.  All the other Greys have, well… grey eyes and no badges.  Quick lineup for those interested:

  • Hue - Blue - Three Square Badges
  • Shade - Red - Two Square Badges
  • Tone - Yellow - One Square Badge
  • Pigment - Pink - One Round Badge
  • EBE1 - Orange/Amber/Whatever you call Phillis’ hair color - No badges (but a sweet metal arm!)

do i spy a little itty bitty bit of a smile on eb's face in the third panel of the recent update? because it looks adorable. love your comic, by the way!

A lot of people have asked that but no, he’s still his old grump self. XD

some transparent, extraterrestrial pixels…

Such beauty~ Also that Grey is swoll.

This isn't a question, I just don't know how to tumblr: I so very much LOVE those horrible clickety sound effects on the latest page. That's such a perfect, subtle reminder of how scary and inhuman EBE1 is and it really makes that bit.

He sounds like bicycle spokes.  Phillis rides a bicycle. CONNECTION?

Yeah I love them too! :D

Yins asked this at nearly the same time. XD
Anyway, they’re printed by an American-Chinese company, Regent, and shipped to me.  I spent about around $9k for all of them coming out to a little less than $2 a book so nearly 2000 books this time around.  I had to go through some legal stuff before I could have them shipped to me since my company hadn’t yet done international business.  They’ll walk you through all that if you choose to go with them.
I order my shipping materials online through some bulk shipping website.  I forget the site off hand but there’s a bunch if you Google for them.

If Trying Human had some kind of series (animated, live-action, anime, etc), do you have in mind a song you'd like as an opening/intro? Something that really represents TH, in your opinion :)?

I’m not sure about opening/endings but these songs were big inspirations for the more key plot elements:

Freezepop - Outer Space http://youtu.be/hqi71qT3oAE (Rose feeling disconnected over the abduction thing and just generally the main cast feeling out of place, 8 missing her son, 6 not having a family, Roger wanting to get back to Rose, Hue not feeling like a Grey, etc.)

Kelly Family - Fell in Love with an Alien http://youtu.be/Oz6c0bhINeg (uhhh… Can’t get into this yet but it’s important that the alien mentioned in the song is a woman.)

Oasis - Stop Crying Your Heart Out http://youtu.be/mVq-MU7ojVY (Prologue and EBE1 + Phillis in general)

Hello, Emy. Will we see another reptilian-human couple in the future? What about a reptilian who is outside the reptilian system(?) (whether is a small or big roll in the comic). Keep up the good work and WOW with the latest update. :)

There’s a lesbian reptoid-human couple living in Japan annnd… that’s about it I think.  oxo;

Hey there ^_^! Is there any special reason of why Phillis' name is written with an I instead of a Y? Just out of curiosity, hee hee! Keep up the absolutely great work Emy, you rock :D!

I just like the look of it better for some reason.  Or maybe they made a mistake on her birth certificate at the orphanage; either way…

Tone, Hue, and Shade out cruising~
