Welcome to 4-Ply

Four teens who have been friends since grade school enter their first year of High School. Will their friendship survive and if so, what about their sanity? Kamal: As strong as toilet paper we are. Carmen: Oh would you please just shut up! Kamal: XD

Okay, so if I did a novel form of the story here is what it could be like (at least for the stories from their childhood. I feel with all that happened to them Kamal would be the best narrator. For their high school years I'm thinking of splitting up between the four like how Rick Riordin wrote Heroes of Olympus.)

Anyway, here's a look at how I could go about doing it if I novelized the story instead of doing the comic to give you an idea.


Her face was pale as she looked at me, beckoning me to move closer. I did. Reaching out she took my hand in hers. It was cold, like holding ice, and I wanted to pull away but I didn't.
"Promise me you'll be a good boy."
I nodded, too choked up to speak.
She touched my cheek with her other hand making a chill run through my body. "I know you will be." Leaning forward she kissed my forhead, sending away the cold with the warmness of her love.
Though I was young I somehow knew that was probably the last time she'd kiss me.

flash forward

My best friend was lying on the ground her lip cut open. She was lying there because of me. Not because of an accident or because of some character I'd been playing but because I'd purposefully hurt her.
Behind me I could hear a girl's voice calling out to me in anger "Why'd you do that"
I couldn't really explain it. I just knew that looking at her made me feel sad and feeling sad made me angry. I didn't like feeling sad. Whenever I felt sad the memories would return. Memories of her lips on my forehead and her words, her last words to me.
"Be a good boy, Kamal."
I hadn't been.

You decide

Okay, so bad news and worse news.
I decided to restart the comic as I wasn't happy with the script so I got a new artist to help with the project since I didn't have the time anymore to draw it. But that has fallen through and now I'm left with three plausible options so I'm letting you the reader decide.
First option: I start a kickstarter for the comic so that I can hire an artist who will be able to stay on for such a lengthy project.
Second option: You the reader get to be the artists, like how some comics have those guest artists come in to do a page for you, the whole comic could be dedicated to guests doing the artwork for the pages I give them.
Third option: I just nix the whole comic format and change it into a novel which I will make available for discounted purchase to those who read the comic when it is available.
So think over the options and if you really care to see 4-ply to completion and if you can't somehow voice you choice here at smackjeeves you can e-mail at elliotdylan @ elliotdylan .com
And I'm sorry for the delay, I was really hoping to surprise you with the new everything but I guess it wasn't meant to be at this time.

I promise

The date of return is up in the air, sorry. But 4-ply will be back, that I can promise you. The date though...undetermined. Until then, if you haven't checked it out my other comic Subject to Change: College Woes is up and has finished its run so you'll at least have something for sure there. Until then, continue to have a good new year and we will see you again >.>

Kentucky Philips and other stories

While writing I came up with a few stories based off Kamal and the gangs games. Not all turned out (I think) good enough to turn into a comic so I have posted a few of them on my wattpad account. Remember, they are rough, and not all of them are finished, but if you miss the characters and can't wait till winter to see them in their antics this could be a good layover.
You can find them here: http://www.wattpad.com/user/ElliotDylan

Due to circumstances, comic will be back in the winter. Sorry for the wait, until then, check out my other comic which is complete: http://subject-to-change.smackjeeves.com/

Also, the comic is having a revamp to the script. If you don't mind spoilers and don't mind doing me a favor, you can find the whole script posted here: http://www.wattpad.com/story/21474147-4-ply-critique-wanted
Take a gander and let me know what you think? If anything seems unclear or things get wrapped up to easily or too quick. Any advice you have is much appreciated and can be sent to me at ElliotDylan @ Elliotdylan.com.
Thanks. See you in the winter!

Due to my current workload I'm going to have to go back to posting only two pages a week. Sorry but hopefully that will help keep my regular posting a thing.
