New Comics Every Weekday - Written by T Campbell & Phil Kahn - Illustrated by John & Jason Waltrip
Noooo, Payet! I was starting to like you.
Oh No! You’ve been Bested!
And this… makes you like him less? You’re a better person than I am.
I’m not conflicted at all about this. Knowing Phil, he meant it that way.
Wow, this guy acts like he knows me or something.
I’m not remotely conflicted about this, it’s awesome.
I know. What the fuck is up with THAT shit. Fucking creeper, man.
He’s probably an FBI Agent who’s created a psych profile, and fell in love with it. He watches you while you sleep, has tapped your phone line, watches your every tweet. His mission is to arrest you, but he’s stalling…
Or, he just thinks he knows people by how they write comics, or something. Which makes him kinda arrogant, like Best…
He does strike me as exceedingly arrogant.
Now who knows who, Mr WEB MAN?!
Oh great, now he thinks Phil is Spiderman.
He’s not the only one.
Annnd there’s the reason Best is not present in the…flash-forwards? Whatever you call them, the opposite of flashbacks. Next chapter will be LFM Rogue preferred, and in comes Bandit.
Also now Best fights Byron, maybe?
Foreshadowings hint at the themes of what will come.
The things in question are outright saying and showing what’s going to happen.
They’re out-of-order scenes. There’s surely a more particular term for them.
I can’t even follow Best’s thinking.
Chain is awesome and children are cheaply produced?
An intriguing solution to the modern “Overpopulation Problem”…
Foreshadowings indeed. They were on a sky city previously in the comic, how did they get there? Oh, they’re on a flying pirate ship? I think I can piece it together… Wait, no I cant. I’m stuuupid.
Is that Bandit chained to the anchor? She has bandit sleeves and bandit hair. If it is, man, she must be a forgiving lady to join up after they do this to her.
… You’re right. Really looks like bandit. Wonder if she sneaked inside or got captured and mistaken for a child … if it really is her.
it looks like it could be bandit five years ago, but we’ve already seen fully-grown bandit earlier in the timeline.
Maybe, the kid isn’t dressed like Bandit but that Bandit dresses like a little kid. It would be taking advantage of her slight build and more than likely, making people feel she wasn’t a threat until it’s too late of course.
Nah, that’s a fairly typical design for a medieval shirt.
Bandit has pointy ears and lovely, meaty lips.
What kind of meat?
I donno, but it tastes like chicken.
Wait… these are the stuck up pain in the ass noble children…. they probably deserve it >.> Hell their ‘boy pirate leader’ tried to kill the group!
Y’know, there’s being a douchebag, and then there’s being outright evil. Unless Payet actually has a plan which keeps the kids safe, he just crossed that line.
This crosses several lines, both moral and contractual, saving some big tweest that will explain it all. If not, that picture of Byron and Best fighting just got explained.
And also, Byron towing that brat around by his ear rocks. Byron’s tough, but fair; even though the kid tried to light him on fire, it’s still a kid.
Well, there goes that reward.
And you guys thought the berserker would be in trouble with child services…HA… now we now why Best isn’t around later!
Man I love the way this group thinks and works through it’s problems…. I WANNA BE IN IT!!! Wooo YAH! (lmao rofl.. u guys are soooo my heros!)
Is it wrong that I laughed?
I’m still laughing
I laughed so hard I work up the wife!
Children are the perfect anchor. They’re already experienced at weighing down their parents.
Oh, Best. Who else in the story would put in incredible and obvious risk the very thing that they were trying to retrieve?
I see the “Evil Former Teammate” plot twist in this comic’s future.
And for the record, that kid with the blond hair in blue does look a lot like Bandit.
Indeed. In the preview I thought it was her and was confused.
I actually said this exact thing on April 7th’s comic (first page of comments). His ego is just too big. Anakin skywalker, here we come!
Awesome! Now all those people who for some reason thought the little rich kid was Von Carnaj can shut the hell up already!
(does a little dance)
Whether or not Best needs to be converted into raw materials now really comes down to whether those shackles are wired in series or in parallel. If there’s a shorter length of chain between each shackle, all he’s done is create the world’s most awesome theme park ride and those kids better love it or he might charge admission. If the only thing between left shackle and right shackle is an upper class anklebiter, he’s created one of the most spectacular atrocities ever seen, and you just can’t let him keep his keys to the team locker room after something like “The Terrible Rain Of Armless Children Of Aught-Four”.
Love that Gravedust is all “…Whatever, n00b.”
Problem: Anchors are only effective if they hit the ground. Child one is about one foot off the end of that chain. Best’s plan either fails or kills at least one child.
The point of the kids on the anchor is to prevent the town from firing on them, not necessarily anchoring the airship.
Now I like Payet. Heroic children indeed you dastardly devil you!
That’s the first time I saw someone double-tapped with arrows.
Trader, your post are quickly becoming one of the best parts of this comic
I am conflicted about this.
That’sâ€¦ that’s just pure evil. Awesome. :D I have to remember this for our next game session. I like Best better by the minute. *g*
(Although I would totally kill him for that)
actually Best is showing off the fact that there are children on board, hoping to forestall the townsfolk from lobbing flaming balls of death via catapult.
Aw… you spoilt the plot :)
that’s a blatant good idea – best has tied the anchor to their chain, so I’m guessing there’s not a lot of it.
Aha, that makes sense. Because weighing down the anchor with children shouldn’t do anything special. The anchor should already be heavy, and the children don’t weigh the ship down any more or less if they’re on board or hanging underneath.
weighing down the anchor with children could always have been just because there wasn’t a rope attached to it before, and the nearest one was annoyingly far away, but in this case, I think there’s a plan.
runny eyes? sore throat? try new Gravedust! guaranteed to point you in the right direction!
You guys are making it really hard for me to hate Best and his belly shirt.
Here, let me make it easier for you.
Seeing this, I don’t think I can hate Best anymore, no matter how hard I try to
It’s been scientifically proven that children are sadistic little bastards. Best is merely providing them with their just comeuppance.
Oh come on, they won’t hit the ground (well except for the bottom ones), they’ll be suspended by the chain links.
At worst they’ll have horribly disfigured broken bones, and sore wrists.
They’ll probably hook onto a tree and not hit the ground directly, so they’ll only get horribly disfigured at worst.
Best is simply like Macgyver. Only they didn’t have Duct Tape in this universe, so he’s the Macgyver of children.
Gravedust looks like he’s whistling. He must be the lesser-known 8th dwarf, Vengeful.
Hey! Tie my youngest nephew to that anchor! He deserved this since he is so disrespectful monster to me.
Too bad, this is just webcomic, not reality.
Oooooh he didn’t just…?! Did he really…?! [b]Ack!![/b]
I admit to being slightly conflicted about this, since the reward was (if I understood right) for the [i]safe[/i] return of the children, presumably intact and alive.
Of course, if the kids are fine (other than mental scarring for the rest of their lives) I’d be fine with this plan.
bah, why did i think i could do italics and boldface?
But you can.
You must use STANDARD HTML tags.
Hmm this statement seems to be genuinely helpful and not contain any cynicism, sarcasm or dark humor. I’m confused.
I thought it wasn’t sarcastic until I noticed the Note under the comment box that lists all the available tags.
Since when was “cite” a standard html tag?
My god, have to admit this has been entrancing!
In the 4th panel, the one where Best is tying the anchor, the 3rd child in the row looks like a tiny Frigg. It almost looks like she’s wearing the armor, too.
Oh man, I hope Erica is deliberately drawing children as chibis of the main characters.
The 2nd kid, with the pigtails, looks like Bandit to me.
aah, and the douche-o-meter steadily rises.
Hehe, in the first panel Gravedust’s face says “Just another day of work”.
yeah… i knew i didn’t like best.
Fantastic! Great plan! xD
