One can of whoop-ass, coming up.
They both work.
They do not. “Whoop” is a loud shout, or at best a misspelling of “whup”, which is “to beat up”. A “can of whoop-ass” is a container of crane butt, which is most likely illegal because those birds are endangered.
And yet they still both work.
Oh dang, don’t tell me Byron looted that classy shouldergear from Lord Gigura-whatsit here.
I think he’s gonna have to do this raid a few more times. His Epic Set is looking a little incomplete.
Oh wow, I didn’t catch that before, but his shoulder armor in the flash-forwards (present?) really do look like he took them off this guy
Now if you go with a horror trope instead of the video game one, Gigundus possess Byron and that’s why Byron takes on his appearance
ON MONDAY: Chapter Title Page, followed by two weeks of Flash-Forward.
It’s called baiting the hook. You know, the one currently lodged in your lower lip.
But the worm just looked so tasty!
…I think that came out wrong.
You took the words right out of my mouth. If this doesn’t happen I’ll be very surprised… almost as surprised as seeing Byron actually conscious during an altercation.
WHOO! Go Byron!
Mild battle damage: Check
Wounded/Downed party: Check
Imposing threat from figure of power and authority: Check.
Badass Banter: DOUBLE FUGGIN CHECK!
Is this when Byron’s Limit Break triggers?
Obviously you meant
“Badass banter: double FRIG-in check!”
Aw snap, are we about to actually see some berserker going berserk?
Something tells me Frigg might wanna take a rain-check on that fight.
This would be a good time for Byron to get one-shot in the head, out cold, so he misses Bandit’s epic backstab for teh win!!1
I find your lack of faith disturbing
Good thing she can backstab with a ballista that is conviently nearby
the gamers was a great movie…
ASSKICKING TIME, MOTHERFUCKER!!
Wait, when did he get his second axe back?
Wizard did it.
OMG thank you so much for that one XD
and ran away.
I think it’s been at least a few minutes since he threw it in. Maybe one of the nuns did something stupid, like try to use it against him. We didn’t get to observe the fray in it’s entirety, so he could’ve gotten it back in any number of ways. Perhaps a wizard did it, or the axe fell through a plot hole. who can say?
Probably when he tripped over it a couple of pages ago because it was lying on the floor surrounded by window glass and startled nuns.
Oh, I figure Byron had himself plenty of opportunity to pick up a stray axe, I’m not terribly worried about that.
I’m wondering more about Syr’nj having empty hands in one panel, and then holding a sword right away in the next. I mean, I suppose she can just get it out of her pouch, but to have it just *appear* there without showing her drawing it seems a continuity error.
Bag of Holding, right?
So Byron’s axes thirst for his words?
That’s fightin’ talk…
“GIVE ME YOUR WORDS!”
Given where words are typically situated in the body, that’s unfortunate for Gigundus…
In an entirely tangental move, can I ask how it is you do the speech bubbles for a comic like this? The text always seems to fit them perfectly, so it’s unlikely you’re drawing them manually.
I could really use a good program to make speech bubbles in comics.
Actually, yeah. I do the word balloons from scratch using elliptical marquee select/deselect and fill/stroke.
Guess I might just need more patience.
i picked up a cool trick that the dude from boxerhockey uses, he makes the ordinary oval balloons, but he does a slight squash on them to make them a little less digital looking. same clean line, same variable shape+size, but you can really see the difference.
That is all.
What is up with Gigundus speech? The inverted N in his name and the Î¦ – Phi instead of O. He must have a very funny way to talk. Maybe he got a flu or something?
He could just have a godlike lisp?
It’s a Cyrillic-esque font. Makes it read like he sounds more imposing, I think.
He speaks in Diablo font
Gigundus talk funny, Gigundus big stupid fundamentalist :P
YES BERSERK BERSERK BERSERK!!!!
Maybe this time Byron won’t get his ass handed to him . . .again , , ,
Considering how often Byron gets flack for being a non-berserking berzerker, I think the Author will make the fight scene epic in his favor.
Of course, the rogue will come in for the killsteal, but take victorys where you can get them, eh?
TINY HEAD MAN YOUR TIME IS UP!
Sweet! We finally get to see Byron get his Berserk on.
Byron just rolled a nat 20 on his ‘take the fucking wind right out of your sails’ check.
This is one of the few times byron has gone up against a single opponent, and this one he may have no qualms against killing, unlike Best. Not only that, but this guy is heavily armored. Which means its gonna take power to get through that armor. Its likely he sees this as a time where using his berserker rage as an asset.
Damn, Byron’s getting a little hot blooded. That doesn’t bother me at all.
Well, Syr tried. I really think him elbowing our nice woodelf in THE FACE is what got him a little hot under the collar. I mean, everyone loves a nice person and Syr is nice. Also, I would so pull a bandit on that one. All my characters are always like “A god, what? dueces.” totally reasonable response.
Frigg looks caught somewhere between “F— you” and “WTF” and it has a pinch of “I’m too tired for this.” Y’all can come up with a profane way for her to say that, I have no idea.
Byron, you’ve been my favorite this whole time despite your constant unconsciousness. Please kick his rear. oxox
And I can’t wait for Monday and I feel like my dog waiting for me to open the door so we can go for a walk.
Daring rescue: check
Rude dude: check
Elf elbowed in the face: check
The possiblility of an extreme ass kicking: CHECK!
personally, I dunno if we’re going to see Byron go berserk. Frankly I doubt it will EVER happen – I think that’s the point.
I’d be delighted to be wrong, of course. But I’ll settle for expert thinking fighting (Byron’s typical specialty) versus the heavily armored priestlord OR rage-driven psycho-fighting. Either coming from Byron will, I think, leave me giddy.
Looking forward to Monday!
Huh. Awkwardly put-together post. Expert thinking fighting or rage-driven psycho fighting are both good, is m’ point!
I think the problem with Byron going berserk is that he’d try to kill everything… including his party. It’ll probably come up, but perhaps not just yet.
He might get “very angry” through.
Byron is snarling like a rabid dog and Frigg is a smiling wide eyed child at Christmas time. Something is going to happen.
Byron will drink deep of the never ending fount that is the Word of Gigundus?
Now I’m picturing Byron fighting like Sherlock Holmes from the recent movie where he calculates all the weakness of his enemies first
Heh. I know another guy just like that one. Yaknow, the big one in armor. He used to scream “I’m the fiery destroyer of worlds!” and “I walk again, a God among mere mortals!” all the time…
Ahhh, I miss the chap.
Nice introductions… now fight :D
