I've just started this comic today and I love it! I love the pacing and I love how you draw your backgrounds!!
I hope it's okay to ask, what kind of animal is Lola? Sorry if that's a silly question!! I keep seeing them as some type of sea creature but I'm not really sure?? I read on one of the earlier pages that Sugar is a cross between a sugar glider and a tarsier and I've been curious as to what Lola is. Thanks in advance! keep up the great work :D

heya. lola is a snail fur-- a type of hydroid, and a cousin of the jellyfish.
they grow on the shells of hermit crabs and (less commonly) snails. they are studied for their renowned ability to regenerate from what would normally be mortal wounds, like having their head cut off.

I woke up this morning and thought "drop-out updated!" and that was motivation to get out of bed, thanks for this comic. :) sugar is precious and relatable.

oh sugar...
Love the lighting and everyone's expressions!

love the pacing and gestures, also this is some of my fave coloring so far. and the expressions r immaculately nuanced, as always. sugar and lola are both very expressive in two very different ways and that's illustrated really well

Sugar that is such a tragic Mood. It's real fuckin' difficult when you and a group of friends sort of attempt recoveries and everyone goes at their own paces and has things work for them that don't work for others. As necessary as at least *trying* is its so frustrating and drives wedges and negative thinking so easily.

As always the art is inspirationally gorgeous and really lights the mood.

Coming back to this page after reading the short comic with Sugar and Frankie, where Frankie says the same thing while Sugar tries to assure them that the drugs do work, is kind of heart wrenching. Now Frankie seems like the drugs have worked for them (or at least Sugar believes they have), while Sugar is realizing whatever she was taking really wasn't helping her, and just, big oof. I wonder if she's remembering that conversation in this moment at all.
