New Comics Every Weekday - Written by T Campbell & Phil Kahn - Illustrated by John & Jason Waltrip
That alt text is almost worse than the link in my name.
Though it’s worse than the character in the link in mine.
Looks like an interesting sort of webcomic. I’ll bookmark it and Archive Binge later.
Jesus Christ, Joe, what the fuck is wrong with you! Stop that!
All we’re doing is playing God! Just playing!
Cause it’s D&D.
Which is a game.
Whenever I feel bad about having had a hand in the fates of fictional characters, I look over .
… the end of One over Zero: http://www.undefined.net/1/0/
Sorry, I’m not good with HTML.
I’m pleased! Little hint to Byronâ€™s past, nice.
I hate nitpick such good artwork but it took me awhile to relies those brown spots where bodies and not rubble, wouldnâ€™t something a little more red be fitting?
Not if it weren’t recent. Blood dries brown. And maybe there wasn’t a lot of blood – we don’t know what happened yet!
I only suggest red to make the bodies more apparent in panel 6 though I want to not that I do think panel 5 looks great.
Somebodies gonna get axed.
Panel four had me confused for a moment, but my little brain puzzled it out.
Agreed, I had a little trouble figuring out that those brown swatches were, in fact, corpses.
Who knew you got +10 to Hide when you’re dead!? YES! -self-high-five-
This page makes me want to give Byron a big hug ;^;
I thought it would be fun to make a pun or two for each page going forward after the pun fest a few pages ago but this page has ruined that… way to go.
That’s quite a body of work you’ve undertaken.
This page just reaffirms how much I like your comic.
Soooo…where is Byron from then? ( Heh, as if we could know…)
Look again folks. Panel four is a major Flashback. ( Compare it with panel 5..you’ll get it.)
Friday is going to be awesome with a capitol AWESOME.
Oh, and panel 2….nice Shock look on Gravies face.
The sepia tone in panel four was probably some sort of hint on that tip, yeah. Friday should be interesting!
Where do I sign up for this job?
I first thought that Gravedust was using his mystic powers to question Byron about his past. But, yeah, these panels really work for me. (and great alt-text)
what’s that behind Gravedust in the last panel… a mop?
The thing behind Gravedust is his Hawk, you can see it on his right hand in earlier panels. I actually missed the bodies in panel 5, I was looking more at the ruins and Byron’s posture and comparing them to panel 4.
Wow, Byron’s kept the same axes since he was just a lad. Durable sons-a-bitches aren’t they?
I guess that’s why he doesn’t believe in intra-species murder.
It looks like Byron does indeed deserve the title ‘berserker’, and I can see why he is so careful to remain in control.
I have to agree with the others who stated that the bodies in panel 5 really don’t work. Even having realized that they are bodies, they still look more like mud puddles to me. It took me a minute to realize what was going on because the image didn’t make sense until I figured out what it was supposed to be, at which point I could find the parts of the image that previously did not make sense.
What is with you people? They have faces, feet, limbs – they’re clearly bodies.
And I can barely see!
[harumphs at the underappreciated eyesight of others]
I hear ya. I see the bodies just fine, because mud puddles don’t look like that.
Also, my right eye is completely worthless. One of these days I’ll just remove it altogether so all the blood wasted on it can go to my left eye and make it super-powered!
I’ll be THE MONOCLE
Get a Eye-patch Trader, then you can ether go by Snake or Nick Fury.
I like the way you think.
You can see everything fine in panel 5, panel 6 it gets a little more cluttered with both Gravedust and Byron inn the forground. My eyes keep goeing to the village first, Byron and Gravedust second, then the bodies.
I still love the page, panel 5 makes the whole page for me.
The bodies are much more visible in panel 5. In panel 6, they have no depth to them, making them look like a part of the ground, which is why I compared them to mud puddles.
I like that the alt-text is getting all Scott McCloud on us.
I was thinking that it was going very Schrodinger
If we had not observed that the massacre had taken place, then it is uncertain that the massacre did indeed take place. By observing the massacre we have now fixed it as a localized temporal-spacial event.
It makes me feel kinda godlike.
Just think of all the other webcomics that, despite their unquestionably large followings, have stories that never happened simply because I don’t read them.
Actuaslly that’s mor Bishop Berkley than Erwin.
“I created a town, called it Leafport. I filled it with towns people, hard working farmers, crafty merchants, full hardy adventures, laughing children. Then I killed them all and left their bodies in the streets as the town I created then burned to the ground. Why did I do this you ask? I needed a plot device.”
Heh, didn’t see the bodies in panel five at first, and I got the impression that Byron went through a vivid flashback every time he walked into a town.
What does gastonian mean?
Context implies Gastonian is a term for people from a location in the comic world. Similar to American or German.
Archive binging to find this page. I can’t help but wonder what hand Byron had in the destruction of (what I assume to be) his childhood home?
Every time I find myself upset about a fictional death, I take solace in the literary present. Even though the first time we encounter Leafport, it is destroyed, I’m good enough at rationalizing to consider
a.) In order to have a corpse-strewn path, a town must have citizens available for slaughter.
b.) If a town has citizens available for slaughter, it has some sort of life as a town.
c.) In a well-written story, characters are often allowed some autonomy to lead the authors in the right direction.
d.) This is a well-written story.
e.) Therefore Leafport could have led a fictional life quietly to itself in the background while we were watching Pirate ships and things.
f.) Literary present steps in and says “Because this is a work of fiction, which is read and re-read, it exists in a constant state of flux. So, even though for me, right now, Leafport is destroyed, for many other fledgling readers the town still exists, if only in potentia. And considering this IS a work of fiction, potentia is good enough for me!”
And ta-da! The guilt I briefly felt for bringing about the massacre of Leafport can safely resume business as a fraction of the random generalized guilt making up approximately two fifths of my psyche.
Either Byron survived his village getting wiped out Conan-style, or the last time he lost his temper he killed off his entire town and didn’t wake up until two days later when the fires finally died out.
