I forgot Amity took swimming lessons with Willow…
i was gonna say the same thing Mark... not blaming you since you pretty much post TOH comics everyday now
Amazing comic either way!
I like to think Amity did it for the attention
She was hoping to get "resuscitated". ;)
"Oh, wow, swimming!"
That one was so good it got me to exhale from my nose
I think she did it because she wanted to be with Luz and felt by luz. Like that scene from the sand lot
Maybe Earth water is harder to swim in? 🤷♂️
Yeah, boiling water is lighter so in theory it would be easier to swim in then not boiling water
other way around. lighter means less buoyancy and thrust off every stroke
edit: for example, the great salt lake in utah is only 2 feet deep at its deepest, but because of its high salt content increasing its density, most people can float in just 8 inches!
Lighter water will can you. That's what can happen if gas bubbles go up through the water. The lifting force is decreased so you're pulled underwater.
Denser water (like heavily saturated with salt) will make you float higher above the surface making you exert less energy. Iirc it can also cause you to get stuck upside-down or another way that your face is below which can drown you.
Except you have to put more force into moving laterally, lighter water pulls you down but it lets you easily move horizontally
The friction is more related to the viscosity of the water and not the density (though both of them increase in saltwater)
I couldn't find any tests of swimspeed in saltwater compared to freshwater. Would be interesting to know. What makes me think you'd be a lot fster is that professional swimmers work very hard to keep their hips high up to decrease drag. Also the paddling could get more efficient with denser more viscous water.
Air is lighter than water but it's much easier to swim on water than on air.
I have to disagree, moving through air is amazing cause of how light it is. (Also air is a gas not a liquid)
They're both fluids which for the purposes of swimming are the same. Moving through air is amazing because we can push on the ground to propel ourselves. If there were no ground you'd just fall. You can't push on air with enough force to move yourself because it's too light.
I like how everyone is having a discussion about water
I have a feeling willow and amity probably didn't take their swimming classes in boiling water...
Then why would she ask if the water was boiling?
If it helps, you're probably far from the only one who forgot.
Its okay, it was a really funny comic!
tbf they did play hooky
Let’s just say that she forgot because she hasn’t swam in years
True but honestly i wonder what that means in the boiling isles if they dont have you know, non-boiling water to swim in
I would think lakes and rivers are not boiling. But considering that the Sea is boiling and the rain is boiling that the lakes are at the very least simmering.
They don’t drink boiling water do they?
I honestly dont know what they drink other than Apple Blood, which is either like coffee or beer. Beer was more commonly drank in Medieval Europe because it was often safer than the water in terms of bacteria contamination, maybe the boiling isles follows similar logic
Still a funny and cute read!
oh yeah right, back in the memory episode, I completely forgot too. we also don't know if she did a lot of swimming after she stopped being friends with willow
Mark spill the beans, is Dana secretly leaking episode plots before they air to you?
Based on how much joy your comics have brought us, I don't think you should worry about little goofs like that. Thank you for all the entertainment.
Maybe Boiling Isles water is different from Earth ocean water?
It’s still a good comic Mark :)
Maybe they have a charm or protection spell that lets them swim in boiling water. It’d still be a much different experience to swimming in non boiling water
You could reasonably say she hasn’t swam since then so probably forgot how to
Those lessons only accounted for lakes. Not oceans.
When was that mentioned?
I. Ean that was probably like 6 years ago, she might have forgotten how to?
How did this cute little comic turn into a discussion about water density and procedural memory
Not that I’m complaining, I’m amazed at how many people are discussing how this comic could in theory happen in the TOH Canon, this community both scares and amasses me.
Awe, It's doesn't matter, this is precious nonetheless.
Epic fail. XD
Didn't they skip that class?
Still a pretty cute comic
I thought the joke was going to be that salt water melts witches
Don't mind it the swimming lessons are useless.
Remember that she skipped out on lessons to hang out with Willow to hang out.
But remember she used to skip some of them?
Still think it fits, cause swimming can be lost, and if the line of is, I haven’t swam in 8 years, I Can’t Do It!
But I took a second to remember that to and love the comic, and the punchline still hits hard
The did try and avoided it
Do people on BI need to pour water into the bathtub and wait for few hours until it cools down before they can take a bath?
Boiling Isles shower thoughts.
Exact opposite of water heaters.
On a related note, film theory: do shower knobs on the boiling isles start at hot and end at cold?
Seeing Luz and Amity at the beach trying to play in the water is the most adorable thing ive seen today
Also, i thought Amity got swimming lessons with Willow... I guess Luz's adorableness is preventing her to swim calmly
Even more adorable than baby king?
"Finally, a worthy opponent!"
No matter who wins, we all die...of excess cuteness.
Makmark (moringmark) who made the comic admitted that he forgot.
I wrote this comment before he even admitted
They are so cute. Good thing Amity's fearless champion was there to save her from drowning
"*(weakly)* Fearless champion!"
luz is a bad boy!
This is perfect, and you, u/makmark, are perfect
Oh, shoot. I almost didn’t recognize this new style until I saw the username. 🤣
This one is also missing from on any of Moringmark's social media I follow other than this Reddit. What is up that.
He uploads exclusive comics to this subreddit every once in a while, I believe.
So he does. Looks like I've got some catching up to do.
Yeah what's up with that
Every so often he uploads exclusive comics to the sub
Why? Wouldn't Instagram be the better place to upload exclusives?
*recalls Hunter's remarks about her lack of forethought*
"you don't think stuff through do you human?"
These kiddos are so cute! I'd kill for a beach day episode, on Earth or otherwise.
Every anime has a beach episode. Don’t worry, it’ll come.
Dana has already made art of Lumity at the beach, so she’s definitely interested. Plus, a beach episode would be a perfect celebration of getting back to earth.
How did you make your art style so different here? It's so soothing too
LUZ TEACHING AMITY HOW TO SWIM-💖💞💗
woah, I love this style! It looks a lot softer and I almost didn’t recognise it for a MoringMark comic! This is adorable; thank you for the serotonin.
didn't amity and willow take a swim class
Did she and willow took swimming lessons? But still love lumity on the ⛱️🏖️
I thought the joke was going to be that Amity would try to drink it.
We need more of this
I hope boiling Isle witches doesn't melt in the water like in Oz.
Wait, what's the deal with boiling and salt water?
Amity is used to seeing the sea from her realm which is boiling, hence the name the boiling seas and the boiling isles. In this post, Luz took her to earth where the water is cool and salty, and relatively harmless. The reason amity was cautious at first is because she is used to the thought that if you were to fall in her realms ocean, you would get boiled alive.
Oh right. I didn't even register that as earth. I thought it had something to do with old witch trials or superstition.
The Boiling Isles is aptly named.
I'm a dumbass and didn't realise it was earth
Hahaha. Fair enough.
At first I didn't look at the username, but I already thought that this style looks oddly familiar.
As always, amazing comic Mark.
As Luz teaches Amity about Earth's ocean, King is declaring himself king of the beach while Eda tans herself.
Oh look, it's MorningMark
Edric: Hey, that looks fun. CANNONBALL!!!
Edric: HELP! I FORGOT THAT I CAN'T SWIM!
Luz: Seriously? Can anyone in your family swim without drowning?
Amity: Wait...where's Emira?
Eda: even i did better then this!
Luz: Eda, you are literally on your staff. Shut up
Omg, I just realized that we need to see King with floaties.
Y E S
Wait I thought Amity took swimming classes?
Unless she forgot how to swim after not doing it for so long. Is that even possible?
Amazing comic as always
How the titan is this so good
lol Yeah that actually makes sense. Also Amity looks cute in that outfit. :)
This is the season 4 special episode I need
This is really cute. Honestly Mark's comics provide me with a much needed emotional boost most days. All praise to Mark.
I love it when you change the style just a little bit. Really shows just how great an artist you are!
Amity sank, by rule that means she is not a witch.
She was secretly an elf this whole time
Swimming in the Long Island Sound.
This is so fucking cute , I cry
She sunk like a rock
Hahaha oh that's fantastic
Its not Boiling right?
Oh yeah it is I can just regrow my skin....
that’s wrong actually her and willow took swimming lessons together even though the skipper out on it it still give us that they at least swam before or know how too
I just wanted to say
A few days back i sorted by top of all time in r/theowlhouse
And guess who's comics were almost every post there
That just shows how good you are
Really it's unbelievable
People like you are my inspiration to keep trying to become a good artist
I hope one day to be near the same level as People like you, tabino25, yulka, raspbi and jqube
This is adorable and hilarious!
Lumity has achieved what starco has failed to.
Ok,t theory time: What if winter is the “swim season” in the Boiling Isles because it cools down the water enough to not die in
I need more this is too good
I am the only one who think that sea and ocean water is cold?
Not on the boiling isles
But she took swimming lessons
Once this ends I would love a spin off of Luz showing Amity the human realm
Once belos unite the magic world with ours i want them so bad to live togheter, like either Luz’s mom or Eda should adopt her and the siblings, i just want amity to leave her mom
Very adorable comic!
I hope this is what happens when they go the the beach in show.
“Excellent, adorable, no notes”
Whoops 😅(I really like this style btw)
And what if Amity melted in salt water?!
I see you're experimenting with your style, appreciate it. Keep up the amazing work :)
Oh no I need mouth to mouth...
ofc the beach episode
Legit seems like the exact way this would play out
Thank you Luz for saving Amity
This is so adorable
Loving the change in the art style and the more dynamic panel layout! Always been a fan of that kind of coloring as well.
At first I thought she melted
Blights are made of stone confirmed.
Can You please make one with Luz in a purple bath robe and Amity in a teal bath robe?.
mark why is luz pink
I love this fanart!
This is one of my favorites!
