New Comics Every Weekday - Written by T Campbell & Phil Kahn - Illustrated by John & Jason Waltrip
Credit where it’s due: it’s so hard to make sure a new release goes off without a hitch.
Release the kraken?
But where are they going to get the head of a Medusa?
Can we just feed it a princess or something?
Nono, feed it a Japanese schoolgirl. Or three. Please?
This is seems like an eating squid instead of a raping squid, so your desire for terrible weeaboo porn will probably not be fulfilled in this storyline most likely.
No reason not to feed a few japanese schoolgirls to it, amirite?
Aways wondered what the term weeaboo meant. I mean at first I thought it was basically the asian version of wigger, but I have seen it used like here as jsut a basic derogatory towards asians in general, most often Japanese specifically.
It is a term specifically applied to (suburban) North American people who are alarmingly much fans of Japanese cartooning.
It is also a reference to this comic strip, from which the term was borrowed to convey how… inappropriate it is to find pre-pubescent children discussing their favourite tentacle rape scenes: http://pbfcomics.com/71/
Our heroes are definitely going to have to head squid-ward. Shame there’s no yellow fellow named Robert who lives in a fruit.
Quick! Throw Byron out there while he’s still bezerking!
Too late, he calmed down at the end of the scene.
Still can’t help but to like that Gnoll.
S’a troll, not a gnoll. I mean come on, I’m surprised we don’t already have an Auriugu AI-chatbot trolling people on an IRC channel somewhere.
He’s also surprisingly resistant to two daggers in the back.
Considering the troll leader was resistant to a spear through his chest from behind and having several limbs hacked off, I wouldn’t really be that surprised tbh.
Captain Sparrow must be in port now i guess.
a follow up, THE CIGAR HAS DROPPED! the stuff has now offically hit the fan now ladies and gentlemen!
Butts will now be kicked without formal introductions.
before this is over with, someone (or thing) will be smoked for sure
Yeah, some one is about to get light up.
Meh. First Rule: “If you give it hit points, then I can kill it.”
Where is Jack…sorry..Captain Jack Sparrow when you need it.
My guess, running away.
Probably already got eaten.
… What? If you remember, it was the Trading Company that killed the Kraken, not Jack. Such an anticlimatic off-screen death. Jack? He just tried to run as far away from it as he could until he finally got nommed on.
One of the scenes that made the movie I think. -nods- So difficult to kill off a main character with style. Even harder to bring him or her back to life without being cheesy.
Back to Kraken stuff, and technically you want a Kraken killer in one one, Will Turner is the man to look to. Survived to attacks by the thing and at the end of the day that is all too often what counts.
Something smells fishy here…
I’m Kraken up here.
I think it’s just a red herring.
Still, go along with it. Why? Just for the halibut.
Enough puns, people. There’s a time and a plaice.
You might want to beak off, guys.
I love Sister Ruler’s expression.
I can’t help but find Rachel preeminently adorable.
Well it is the first time we have seen her with her hair down and not falling hundreds of feet out of the hair. With their habits on it is often too easy to forget how lovely many women of the cloth truly look. -smiles- but then that is the point I think.
Aw shit. Scipio lost his cigar. Now you know they are fucked.
He didn’t “lose” it. Do you see how short that thing had gotten? Barely anything left to smoke. He just decided that, clearly, he was going to need a fresh cigar for this fight.
Alright, people, let’s go, one-liner time!
“Okay, who’s in the mood for some CALAMARI?!”
I smell me some TRIPLE TREASURE.
I’m wondering if this Gralor is really all he’s cracked up to be.
You can’t park that here, the traffic inspectors are really kraken down on this kind of stuff.
Is that the long tentacle of the law you’re worried about?
A kill like that is worth a few squid! (I’m English you see)
It’s a trap!
“Say, is that a tentacle?”
“Or are you just happy to see me?”
“We’re going to need a bigger….everything.”
Now that, is a boss fight.
Did you run out of time to draw shocked expressions on Bandit and Emerl? The fact that Scipio and Rachel show some actual emotion at the Krakken’s reveal but the other two get a simple emote is jarring and makes it feel like a missed opportunity.
Yeah, the bulgy eyes are being overused in such a short span of time that they annoy more than amuse.
Yeah, I’m usually not one to complain about the art, but it does throw me a bit.
^^*disagree*. They haven’t encountered something like this yet.
I do wonder about that, but perhaps this is an indication of the “immersion” of those characters. Or lack of immersion. Remember, it’s not just a world, it’s a game…and we still don’t know if Bandit’s a “regular” player, or what.
Or…they could just be equal parts shocked and annoyed. The flat-line mouth often makes me think “annoyance.”
We try to avoid overdoing everything but I will say this:
I’m sorry you guys don’t like those faces because they crack me the fuck up.
They epic stupidfaces.
Aw, no individualized, nuanced expressions for Emerl and Bandit? I am a little disappointed. But, there are only so many ways to convey total shock.
Speaking of which, if Rachel has a Holy Lightning spell, now might be a good time to use it — before the tidal wave hits.
This is a whole ‘nother kettle of fish, folks.
I like the new heroes, but I’m starting to like the new enemies even more. Anyone else glad to see the bird land in the boat?
Yes, I fairly glad only one of them has been killed so far.
It is a good moment for a Menage a 3 crossover. Yuki seems to be just in the right mood.
Oh shut up you stupidfaces!
It’s boatmurdered all over again.
Can’t be. The epic level dwarven dual-wielding berserker already got killed.
They’re going to kill it with backpacks.
E-merl used Summer’s Flame!
It’s not very effective…
Fukken Ross Perot, man.
We’re gonna need a bigger party
Yup. When I played this very boss fight in Civilizations Wars I had an entire city at my disposal. And I still had to grind my magic to epic proportions before I had a chance of winning. The tentacle slaps smashed entire armies. It was horrible.
opposite faction defeated… check
overside, water-based boss… free loot’s always nice
also, I’m now rooting for the savage races thanks to that gnoll. who’s with me?
Well, get out there, Scip. You’re the tank. Get agro.
as far as I can tell, that thing has no eyes = potential weakness
also, perv that I am, I imagine this is what Cthulhu’s wang looks like.
Nah bro, it has eyes.
Check in the second H from the right and under the tentacle.
Seriously, though–while I’m glad to see the Kraken is still getting regular work these days, I really worry it is being typecast with all this sea-monster stuff. Like everybody else with an ear to the ground, I’ve heard the rumors that it’s being considered for a role as the “sassy gay friend” in an upcoming rom-com, am I really alone in thinking a true dramatic role would really “release the Kraken” to the benefit of all?
Challenge Rating: Impossible
nah, water-bosses are alays the easist thing ever
Eh, HLY, clearly thou art yet to experience fighting “Kraken” in the Shoals from DC Stone Soup.
Stupid typos in my email address.
Rachel gave the avian some knock-out wine and broke its silver spur.
Well, better get a kraken, you can’t squid now.
Damn it, ninja-ed by alt text!
Look out! It’s got a knife!
I’m surprised the gnoll didn’t call them suckers.
This comment page broke the ‘pun per meter’ record, ladies and gentleman!
I’ll avoid commenting on Bandit and Emer’s expression, since everybody else already did it before, but I’ll say this: That monster is so, SO big that the entire city will probably be ruined by tsunamis before it can even swing a single tentacle! Good luck, pals!
By the way, that ‘panel’ with Rachel is hilarious.
Yeah… it is kinda depressing when you realize a 20d6 lightning bolt is only going to ‘annoy’ it.
Call me crazy, but the safest place to be would be ‘inside’ it, and dishing out damage from there.
That’s how we took that thing in the Twilight Highlands out.
A lot of the bigger monsters are, especially if you have acid resistance.
Perform an attack with a greataxe upon the individual tentacles. Then profit. (I hear there’s a market for calamari…)
Huh. That harbor looks familiar, almost. Could have sworn I’ve been there.
On a diplomatic mission, most likely.
Those must have been aggressive negotiations.
I personally find it more amusing that it took this much shock to get a normal expression out of Scipio, rather than the fact the others got dinner plate eyes.
How’d they recruit this thing? Gastonians discriminate against krakkens too?
Of course, as they are non-humans.
I’m sure hat, f you talk to t, it’s very civilised and polite. t just happen to be a krakken
you can’t judge everythng on frst impressons :P
I’m actually picturing a kobold in scuba gear riding it like a mahout.
They’re going to need a bigger boat.
Oh hey! Is that an eye near the top of the second-last H on the page?
I think it is!
“Ph’nglui mglw’nafh Cthulhu R’lyeh wgah’nagl fhtagn.
In his house at R’lyeh dead Cthulhu waits dreaming.”
But where will we get enough butter at this hour?
What’s with this whole using ‘krakken’ instead of ‘kraken’ fad, anyway? *rages*
