Panel 1: Atomic wedgie?
That was his disguise robe
I do believe wedgies go *up*
As to whether it was atomic or not depends on the claim of the “wedger” and the damage done to the “wedgee.”
Heh, heh, heh…
Panel 5: Kirby dots make me happy.
Shark skin boots, check
Gnoll skin rugs, check
Going to make a killing at the market.
“Huh. There’s something different about Byron in this strip.”
I guess the shoulders would be kinda bulky under the robes.
Considering that he’d have to blend in with non-humans, a few bulges here and there would probably not have attracted much attention. More danger of clanking noises and tearing the robes, I’d think.
However, why no-one noticed him smelling of oil, leather, and dire honey, as opposed to fur and sweat, I must wonder.
With that many unwashed bodies in one room, they were probably trying to avoid noticing the smells around them.
My shark has no nose!
how does he smell?
This is the second time this week I’ve run into this joke. ;?
I’d think you’d have ducked the second time.
I guess the shark-man should have thought before nose-diving into this cult business.
Over a million land sharks are killed every year by vengeful berserkers. Say “no” to shark-nose soup.
They must have prodigious breeding habits.
I think you mean prodigious ‘bleeding’ habits.
Not if you’re going to say that millions are “killed” every year.
Either they’re breeding like rabbits or on the endangered spieces list.
They’re breeding like landsharks, of course.
Each adult landshark, being both male and female, is capable of self-fertilization… and since they simply squirt their offspring onto the desert sands to fend for themselves, they really don’t mind if they do!
Yeah… ah made that right up.
They breed by fapping?
I mean… Lol!
…although; if it’s in the desert, it may be more like dry-humping.
Just so you guys know my post was based on an ad I saw on CNN a long time ago, it said that 100.000.000 (yes, one hundred million) sharks are killed every year to make shark fin soup. The number felt kinda excessive, I didn’t know there was that many sharks on the entire planet.
This isn’t it but it’s very similar, the voice over could even be the same as the one used in the ad: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pyfQt5T7Bdg
I guess those cultists didn’t make the cut.
That’s rather on the nose.
I am suspecting this is a flashback scene to when he “became” a berserker.
Possible. The fact we got a clearer idea of what happened at Battleshire, that the cultists had a hand in it is certainly welcome whatever the case.
Before all we had to go with is that it was his home, he had some brothers (actual blood or otherwise) there and that one day he found himself holding a pair of axes with everyone else dead and the town destroyed. As well as that it seems the destruction of Battleshire, the destruction of Leafport and his Berserker state are all linked to magick of the Old Gods.
On that note, I had been under the impression that the Countless Limbs worshipped demons, but ehh, supernatural creatures I suppose. Also surprised to see that it’s not a human and elf centric cult from the previous run-ins in the story.
Demon, god, it’s semantics really. God = any powerful thing you worship. Demon = any powerful thing you dread and hate.
And in ancient greek, daimon was simply “a being of power”.
Good, bad, ugly – all daimonai.
that’s my guess, too.
I don’t think that’s the case. He refrences “taking the mission alone”, which implies he’s working with the group at this point.
Is this what they call “slash fiction”?
I’d say hack storytelling.
I like the cut of your jib.
Head Shot! Head Shot! Head Shot! Head Shot! Body Blow! Body Blow Body Blow!
“That was the BEST hockey game ever!”
“So, ahhh…. Who… like, won, eh?”
“…uhhh…. the Habs…?”
Yay! Unlocked a new outfit! Now to switch back and forth between it an his old one at completely random times!~
It’s really good to see Byron back in action for real instead of just fighting to make sure he doesn’t zerk out. Hopefully he doesn’t after all that trouble they went through.
I thought the cult was previously made up of human members? These are all beast men. Is this the same cult?
it’s an equal opportunity cult. they accept anyone so long as you provide your own robe and are willing to bring snacks to meetings
You’ll get friend points if you also bring your own sacrificial animals or children.
Now, I’m a mere novice to tactics, but is inducing a berserker rage really the best way to counter a charge from an axe-wielding fighter?
Maybe if it’s more of a demonic possession kind of thing?
Of course, maybe the spell is “Tectonicus’ wildcard deluxe” and the cultists really don’t know what it does in any specific use – except that it’s going to be “extra special” and “really neat” and involve lots of gore.
Would this be pvp or pve?
Probably PVE, since the cultists specify adventurers coming. Can’t imagine another player would do that.
Byron gonna monologue your face off.
Yay, kickass Byron is back! I missed that red text box.
“Do I still think in those little yellow boxes? I do! Oh, how I’ve missed you, little yellow boxes! What fun we shall have together!”
You win ALL the Internets for that Deadpool reference.
Bad shark! No chum!
How to deal with the Countless limbs?
Cut them limbs off, then count them!!!
…Unless they’re like Hydra and they keep sprouting back.
“Gotta cauterize those stumps, Byron! Slash an’ burn, Baby! Slash an’ burn!”
Only then will he find the Head Limb, whose death will bring the demise of all Limbs!
Oh. Um. Sorry. Got a little carried away there.
Oh! Hey! Did anyone else notice Shaggy and Scooby running away in panel 1?
(Except Scooby only thinks it’s Shaggy; it’s really a spooked-out ghost who came to the wrong party.
“I rought yoo had rhe directions!
“Rhy rould I rask for rhem at rhe ras station? I’m a rog! Robody runderstands a ralking rog!
“…Raggy? Izzat yoo?”)
3. 3. 3!
New reader here. I have finished reading this comic from the beginning and have heartily enjoyed it. The plotting, dialogue, character development and artwork are excellent. Keep up the good work.
