Did Syr’Nj consider the possibility that Byron will simply die? Be haunted by the thought that the berserker could have survived this? or the fact that she put him in this situation in the first place?
I think she’ll find it unbearable.
He’ll be fine. I bet this is barely a concern for Byron and that he’s taking this opportunity to practice his acting skills.
I see what you did there.
She threw him in the woods with just the bear essentials.
You mean the bear necessities, right?
Are you saying he Baloo it?
If he does, Byron will meet a Grizzly fate.
If I were him, I would consider changing firends.
And possibly underwear.
See, this is why you need the shield. POWER BASH! POWER BASH!
5th panel. FUS ROAR DAH!
Who uses unrelenting force these days?
Bryon sure is in a dire circumstance right now.
such a bear-faced pun…
Give him the pic-a-nic basket? But what if the ranger sees ‘im?
“Not to worry, my berserking friend. I shall handle everything!”
Yogi, more dire than the average bear.
….and now he has a Boo-boo.
I must give this one to Carl-E.
I second the plus one!
It certainly looks like the Dire Bear intends to disarm Byron.
He is only trying to take away his right to bear arms.
For your double pun.
Byron just dislodged a pesky popcorn kernel that’s been in that bear’s teeth for a week. A WEEK.
Hey! That was my fapping arm!
Did Byron just attempt a double-axe shoryuken?
All in all if I’m reading this right, Byron just lost his left axe in the bear, dropped his other one, and isn’t in any position to do anything more than get eaten to the bear bones.
He’s still got his shoulder blades!
Nah, the bear just brought the left axe back
If the bear eats Byron, does it get his spot on the team?
As a bearzerker?
Wait, I thought I clicked the Guilded Age link, how did I end up at Bearmageddon?
Awesome comic. (Though of course not as awesome as GA.)
Byron’s really gotta learn to stop throwing his weapons in the middle of an actual fight unless it will ACTUALLY kill his opponent.
This is a BEAR. That is its ARM. Hunters have been known to shoot bears in the face and not kill them. BUT PULLING THE TRIGGER DOES NOT DISARM THEMSELVES.
Methinks our Berserker buddy should stick to killing people shaped things…
This is what I thought too at first, but upon closer examination, it looks like the axe got lodged in the bear’s skin in panel 4. Panel 5 is the bear pulling away with the axe, with Byron reaching out for it with his mouth open in shock/dismay.
He’s still a dolt for losing his weapon, but I guess dire bears have tougher hides than what he’s used to.
Or dire bears are magnetic.
Animal magnetism? OK.
Perspective! I can forgive just being disarmed by abnormally tough bear hide.
Still. Would have wrassled it myself… missed opportunity if you ask me.
hmm I just realized I could make Byron for Soul Calibur 5…
I hope Byron’s not too attached to that arm.
Hmm… big bear. Big big bear.
Can’t get enough of that Berserker Crisp~
lets see if Byron live up to the legend of Billy!
Looks like someone got caught Bear Handed
That bear certainly has a disarming manner.
I don’t believe he threw his other ax, as much as when he cut the bear in the arm, it pulled back taking the other ax with it. He’s going to need to overcome his pain here in order to smash it in the face.
If it were me, I’d kill it with my bear hands.
Byron is the worst fighter in the party. He always get severely wounded, and has to resort to a friend-killing gimmick just to make it through.
Scipio would have chopped the bear´s arm with a single blow, and Frigg would just magic-hammer its skull.
but he’s probably the best strategist, which is what he best contriutes to.
and the freind killing gimic does make him pretty much unstoppable. he just needs to figure out how to fight at full force without it getting control of him.
“The other day
I met a bear;
A great big bear,
A-way up there!
“He looked at me.
I looked at him.
He sized-up me,
I sized-up him.
“He said to me
‘Why don’t you run?
I see you ain’t
Got any gun.’
“And so I ran
Away from there.
‘Cause right behind
Me was a bear.
“Ahead of me
There was a tree.
A great big tree,
Oh Lordy, me.
“The nearest branch
Was ten feet up.
I had to jump
And trust my luck.
“And so I jumped
Into the air,
But I missed that branch
A-way up there!
“Now don’t you fret,
Now don’t you frown.
‘Cause I caught that branch
On the way back down!”
Does any one remember the last verse? The memory lapse is unbearable.
According to my internet research, there are two possible endings:
“That’s all there is, there is no more,
Unless I meet, that bear once more.”
“The moral is, no shocking news,
Don’t talk to bears, in tennis shoes.”
I must admit I’ve never heard that song/poem before in my life. I was of the “littlest worm” generation of camp songs.
Awesome! Thank you. The first one is the one I learned, ‘though the tennis shoes one is more fun.
Also, I’m afraid to ask about the “littlest worm.” It doesn’t do anything super-gross like explore the eye-sockets of unwary campers, I hope. (I had a neighbour with a penchant for scaring the crap out out us younger kids… bleccchhh.)
I just remembered her comeuppance!
We were all running through an old house and she was just about to jump out of a dark corner and go “YAAHH!!!” when she swallowed a spider.
Heh, heh, heh.
Guess what song I started singing to her?
Boy did she get mad. Worth it, tho’.
hm. “out OF us.”
Huh… this hand needs salt.
I thought it was dire honey…?
That’s on his face. Clearly, the hand? It needs SALT.
I see what you did there. I think.
Bit of bad luck there, eh Byron?
Wait. Isn’t this thing technically more dangerous than that troll chief?
