If you’re enjoying our work here and would like to see it continue (and would like to get access to all kinds of special benefits),

please take a moment to watch the video on my Patreon page and consider becoming a Patron.

So! The entire team takes advantage of the opening Kyle created! Can they bring Laampros down? Or are they fools for challenging this King of Hell?

Tune in this Saturday to find out! Hope to see you there! 😀

  • EEEE!

    • stickfigurefairytales

      And another V for AJ!

      • YAY Me!! 😀 I lost count again how many.

        • stickfigurefairytales

          A vast army at the very least.

        • 84

          • davefragments

            Good number.
            In fact, excellent number.

          • 39

          • davefragments

            no town named “39”

          • I’m getting up there!!

  • A tree to the eye, a tree to the eye! That’s gonna be some headache Laampy gonna be suffering.

    • Squishy

      “first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye”

  • davefragments

    And the ShadowLoins are only shadows …
    Little boy smirks and giggles

    • ShadowLoins now have daggers sticking out of them.

  • davefragments


    • davefragments

      Did you know that a researcher spent a night scraping spit off 15 frog’s tongues and proved that a) Frog spit is the stickiest stuff on the planet, and b) it’s non-newtonian (It changes when it touches a bug).
      I’m not sure what all that signifies but it is interesting.

      • timemonkey

        Biology is nifty.

  • stickfigurefairytales

    Ah, the classic knives-to-the-crotch, tree-to-the-eye, giant-fist-of-water-to-the-jaw combo.

    • Juliette Leroux

      A classic for a reason.

  • Snorlaxation

    Crotch attack!

  • Squishy

    Well, I’m pleasantly surprised that I might be wrong about thinking this wouldn’t end with the team banding together to take down the big baddie. It was my assumption that if that were the plot they wouldn’t have worked so well as a team before and would have to learn to work as a team. But perhaps I was thinking more movie plot rather then comic book plot. Also glad we finally got that crotch shot half the comment section has been calling for.

  • jreed3842

    Daggers to the dick and a tree truck to the eye. That’s really gotta hurt!

    • T Dibbler

      Well, the tree has clearly done damage, but he didn’t seem as bothered by the daggers as I’d have expected.

      • But were they +5 Holy daggers to get through his damage resistance?

        • Juliette Leroux

          Maybe the Shadowloins add a +5 resistance too?

      • Malusz

        Alternate theory based on alternative facts: the shadowloin dissimulates an entirely empty area.
        Yup. No sex. EVER. No wonder Laampros turned up evil.

  • Saxon_Brenton

    I was wondering where Spooky had floated off to, but then I realised that it’s probably something like those robed minions. They’re all there, and have been all along, it’s just that the art hasn’t focused on them.
    Which means that Flyboy really should have grabbed him after distracting Laampros with that tree.

    • TwilightDreamer

      Same deal as Duncan I guess…can’t remember last time I saw him 😛

  • Ow, ow, ow? Nope… Yeah, yeah, YEAH!

    Aww, the Shadowloins™ got a boo-boo ;-p

    • TwilightDreamer

      … it, so referring to them like that now! XD

  • Jac

    Heh, I actually really like the aesthetic of the flat colors! It reads very comic book to me, like classic JLI.

  • Jac

    Splinters SUCK.

  • camelotcrusade

    Next, I recommend a Hello Kitty ribbon affixed to his beard for the ultimate insult.

  • I have been tripping to see this page, and finally made it. My internet connection, and later also tv has been glitchy -and later completely gone- since before midnight. I’m sure my signal-provider has been SO popular in the last 8-9 hours.
    Got internet and tv fully back now, but that took some time. Was NOT happy, waking up and still unable to load internet, but at 5am decided to take a short nap again. Luckily internet finally back when I got up at 6.15.

    Bad provider, ruining my camping. First thing I checked was here, of course, and what a page 🙂

  • Sapfo

    I keep getting Greek mythology references from this page. Points to the one if who can name which one 😉

    • Klaus

      Uranos and Kronos.

      • Sapfo

        not the one I was thinking of

        • Klaus


    • Jeldenil

      That cyclops Odysseus faces perhaps. And I’m also strangely reminded of Prometheus’ punishment.

  • TtllyAwkward

    Hell of a shot to take.

  • I don’t think Fluke wants him to have any more kids….

    Look at Mitch being all awesome…he is just so amazing!

  • Jeldenil

    So demon dong isn’t as sensitive as human dong? Those choppy thins didn’t seem to faze him much.

    • Tristan Black Wolf

      Maybe it depends on what you’re into. In my opinion, yeah, that’d be Hell…!

    • timemonkey

      They’re pretty tiny, Fluke doesn’t have super strength or anything and he’s probably pretty tough seeing as he walks around naked.

  • Squishy

    As they say, beau-tree is in the eye of the beholder.

  • Maus Merryjest

    Oooouch, right in the daddybags!

    • Stephen Hutchison

      Circumcised by a FLUKE.

  • Shiny Gwilly

    oh geez, OUCH
    team pulling all the stops now with the hard hits, good on them!
    keep at it but keep up your guard please!

  • Aitsuki

    Fucking hell, OW.

  • TwilightDreamer

    ….Fluke….did you just…!?!?
    HAHAHA! XD omg…OUCH!!
    And double ouch!! Flyboy! youchie…that makes me cringe….
    Then again, must say, excellent aim to all of you….
    Man this battle is going back and forward a lot…..I LOVE IT! XD

  • Will Parkinson

    Go team go!

  • karmakat

    and that BARELY make him flinch? was the demon guy CASTRATED ALREADY OR WHAT!!!!

    on a side note, his other arm position does show more pain than when he was running earlier.

  • karmakat

    Anyone else wanting to pull on that FREAK SHOW goatee and “whirl him” around, or drag, BTW or is it just me? hehe

  • Nate

    Comparing to the scrip is interesting, as this page is both more and less violent.

    Also, I don’t know why, but for some reason I’m picturing Laampy inviting Kyle to dinner the following weekend to meet his mother. “She’s making filet of soul.”

    • Ant-Man

      “filet of soul” _ : -) chuckle-laugh-giggle

  • Malusz

    Random thought: If something is supposed to hurt as Hell and Laampros comes from Hell, doesn’t it heal him or something?

    Yeah, crawling back under my rock after giggling.

  • Geneva150

    He could care less about daggers to the dick. All this time I assumed the shadows were hiding it, but maybe he just doesn’t have sex organs. I mean, he’s an all powerful demon that’s much taller than a human, he probably just points at human women and goes “Boom, you’re pregnant”!

    • Vaira

      He does bave it, there was one picture showing it. Some people were even taken aback that a comic about hot gays would have a visible suggestion of a penis.

      • Geneva150

        I was joking, I know he has one!

  • Cman65

    Right in the big red “pink bits”

  • timemonkey

    Quick, Mitch, get the other eye too! He really has been pretty effective in these fights.

  • Earl Patterson

    More like…. Daddy is fool to try enter earth first place

  • Jason Moon

    Getting stabbed or kicked in the shadow is a very special kind of pain.

    I’ll bet that tree reminds Laampros why he forbade his son from getting a Red Ryder BB gun for Christmas.

  • Minyassa

    Oh ughy ick, eye things! xD

  • Mikki

    Did Fluke just stab Lamp in his manly parts with 3 very nasty looking daggers?

    • He tried, I don’t think they got through his damage resistance though.

    • Klaus

      If you look at panel four, you will see that Laampros is huge. Those daggers are too small to do any real damage to him..

  • Jason Wexler

    So! The entire team takes advantage of the opening Kyle created! Can
    they bring Laampros down? Or are they fools for challenging this King of


  • Ant-Man

    everything Flyboy touches he can also lift and fly with_ why hasn’t he touched/lifted/grabbed Lamp by the dong/balls/horn/tail – and then drop him on something sharp and pointy.

    i think this demon king should have kicked or killed their asses by now-

    the only 1 maimed is the giant, supernatural, bad-ass, fire-flinging demon ?
    do any of them have broken nails or split ends- any damage ?

    • I don’t think Laampros would be cooperative with that and I am unsure how Mitch could deal with a giant squirming Laampros who would be trying to either grab him or squish him.

      • Kass

        Maybe Mitch can’t touch him… That king is on fire. Perhapps he’s too hot to touch. 😉

    • davefragments

      Have you read the Evil Overlord’s List?

      It’s like the All Seeing Eye on the Seal of the USA — Illuminati-ating

    • Klaus

      That would be very dangerous for Mitch. But if he were to do it, it would be better to throw him through the ring. Remember, however, that Laampros has wings.

  • Zephyr10101

    Fools? Or super fools? :B

  • KiannaLeigh

    Those fools just took out one of your eyes. I’d start taking this seriously if i were you, Lamppy.

  • Sunseahl Silverfall

    Restated from the FB page… With elaboration:

    If TyP really does win over him he shall be, henceforth, referred to as Dirkcrotch, not Laampros. A laughing stock of the demon realm. (Remember, Spooky was held captive by another of the demon realms more powerful residents so there’s probably some unseen Demon power struggles on that side we’ve /not/ seen)

  • davefragments

    Tomorrow is February 2nd and is Groundhog Day. Punxsutawney Phil gets to predict the length of winter.

  • Vaira

    Laampy’S face expression in the second panel: oh my god, how dare you ruin my perfect hair!

  • TheIncubusLord

    I literally LOL’ed!
    Go get’im, guys!!!

  • bronakopdin

    So late again today (and really, it is already 3am Thursday here >/////___>

  • wow.

    ´right in the shadow dick.

    i didn’t reck’n you had the implied balls to depict such a thing, alex.


  • LadyRassberry

    Ouch! I totally clenched seeing those knives go straight at the family jewels…

  • Jeff Baker

    Never hurts for trying! (Ow! Crotch hit!)

  • Jerry Murry

    *shudders* I know he’s a demon king and all, but DAMN that first hit!

    • Shadizar Silvermask

      He’s not so weak a thing for that to bother him.

  • Columbine

    Damn I really love the way the fight is going on this page. It seems like a step up for all of them but it’s also really in keeping with what we’ve seen them do before. It just *works* really well.

    I have to ask, is the end of Young Protectors near? Or will we see more adventures from the gang after the defeat of Llampros?

    • Alex has said he will consider another Young Protectors story after this “if there is interest”.

  • John

    “Before you criticise the speck in the eye of another, first remove the tree from your own” 😛

  • Toli Bera

    I wonder what Commander is pumping in to his head this time?

    • Angel Rosemond

      I’m thinking ‘Turn the Beat Around’ on repeat for confusion.

    • Angel Rosemond

      I’m thinking ‘Turn the Beat Around’ on repeat for confusion.

    • davefragments

      Disco Inferno?

    • Ember

      He’s getting Rick Roll’d. Or maybe getting a dose of The Girl from Impena.

      • Toli Bera

        7 What’s New Pussycats, followed by 1 It’s Not Unusual.

  • Angel Rosemond

    Here’s a tree for your troubles.

  • Ryan Pratt

    I wonder if Laampros will be able to have more children after that first hit? If not, he better try to make things good with Kyle!

  • D. G.

    Oddly enough, I kinda like Laampros. I didn’t want to see him really get hurt. Just wanted him pushed back through the gate and off back to Hell. The team is much more courageous than I expected.

  • Thought I could insert a screen capture of it in my comment, but the ‘Project Wonderful’ adds I saw today were for the webcomic Exorcism Academy (with the demon Al), the kindle book Sympathy for the Devil and the art and writing community Paper Demon… Coincidence? Don’t think so! Laampros must be rallying some help‼

    • Klaus

      Right now the ad above the comic is for Demon of the Underground.

      • That is a comic I will highly recommend btw. One of my fave comics.

        Edit: LOL and now the top ad is the book (series) called Roses for Lucifer. About a twincest relationship so strong even the Devil can’t break it.

        I think we coinsidently have a theme these last days xD

        • Klaus

          Now it is for Giggles the Annihilator.

  • bronakopdin

    just now I noticed for the first time that Laampros binded his beard… somehow that’s… really cute x’D

    • Squishy

      Well if he didn’t, with it being that long, it would be all over the place. Or he’d have to jell it or grease it and I’m sure both those products are flammable which would understandably create issues. Which means the hair-tie must be fireproof.

      • bronakopdin

        well maybe but seriously, a supernatrual being like him would surely have other possibilities than using products created by us “lowlifes” x’D
        in fact I bet his own body, including any hair, cannot burn anyway tbh
        it might rather get in the way here and there but then again as long as it it that probably happens anyway now and then, binded or not xD

        • Squishy

          Oh, I’m sure that his own body is fire proof (including hair) but that doesn’t necessarily extend to foreign products on his body. The same way Kyle burning off his socks in Chapter 2 proves that his uniform must be fire proof. But even if he puts jell in his beard and the jell gets burned off I don’t think it would burn his beard, he just wouldn’t have any product in it anymore.

          • bronakopdin

            repeating myself: why would a superior being like him even USE “foreign products” ^^’
            I never suggested that, it was all you
            and I seriously doubt that hair band was imported from earth either…
            about the hair being all over the place you can also read the last sentence of my comment above

          • Squishy

            By forign product I just meant forign to his body, not that it was necessary imported. He can use hell brand hair jell/grease if he wants. But then they probably would make it fire proof if such a thing existed.

          • bronakopdin

            the point is that I think they don’t have stuff like that to begin with…
            I really think he might just have taken some of that beard hair and binded it around the rest, but in any way, if they do nt even use clothing… why have hair bands or grease or whatever ^^’
            especially as all those are creations of us “Lowlifes”

  • Curt Clark

    The luck-powered superhero throwing knives that land in JUST the right/wrong place…Longshot reference? :3

    I’ve been hoping the team would rally and fight back now that the demons are no longer a problem. Can’t have Kyle doing ALL the heavy lifting.

  • Kate G

    Houston, we have a problem. The ShadowLoins are officially down. The ShadowLoins are officially down. We need backup in 3…2…

    • I think the emergency generator stepped in 😉

  • Hey, Laampy, heh, heh, got wood?

    • Ha!

      • Pietro7

        Now he has wood for your sheep. (Settlers of Cataan joke) 🙂

        • I haven’t played that in maybe 10 years. Have an older edition somewhere in storage boxes.

  • Sebastian East

    I think that after the big fight scene if Kyle survives i think he should go back to normal but keep a small set of horns i think that wounld be a talking point a that it should strengthen Kyle’s power.

  • Saxon_Brenton

    Huh. Took me a couple of days, but I just read the script.
    Nate (further down comments page) referred to this obliquely, and I should have taken the hint at the time. Originally Flyboy was supposed to just whack Laampros with the tree like a club, not shove it into his eye socket.

  • Go Team! Get that big red jerk! Make Kyle prouder of his friends!

  • Morgan

    So excited for tonight’s update. 😀

  • Barney

    Oh, I just realised where fluke threw those knives. I get Laampros is evil but still… dick move, flukey. Even for a demon, that’s gotta hurt

    • Morgan

      Hur Hur Hur, “Dick” move. (Hi, I’m perpetually 12 apparently.)

      But yeah, Laampy’s gonna feel that one tomorrow.

    • Andrew Swift

      When I’m reading this section of the comic book, I keep thinking to myself “It must be really hard to not show Laampy’s dick and make it seem natural. You know that thing’s got to be swingin’ all over the place.”

  • ChibE

    Fluke got lucky with that shot, all right. Daaaaamn, that had to hurt.

  • Oh crap! Just woke up, having to use the bathroom, and I discover that I forgot to turn on power for the charger. Let’s see how much my tablet can charge before I’ll be back in about 1½ hour.
    Need power enough for camping xD

    • stickfigurefairytales

      Oh no! Hope you can return to us, Danish!

      • I’m back now, still in time for camping. Luckily I did have a little power left on tablet, when I thought I started charging it as bedtime, rather than tablet being full flat. I should have enough power for a couple hours 🙂

        • stickfigurefairytales

          Hi Doki! *hugs* I needed that, thank you.

          • ^_^ cuddles?

          • stickfigurefairytales

            Yes, please! ^_^

  • davefragments

    The good news is: My weekend will include: Midori playing the Mendelssohn’s Violin, Mozart’s Symphony No. 35, “Haffner,” and Brahms’ Symphony No. 1.
    The bad news is my furnace had a lousy checkup — 68ppm CO inside the top of the box.

    On another note: tonight’s CableTV entertainment was a choice between a repeat of Deadpool and a repeat of The New Ghostbusters. I wanted an evening of adult entertainment not kiddie snickers, smirks, and giggles.

    • davefragments

      And when Ghostbusters was done, I put on FURY ROAD.

  • stickfigurefairytales

    Went to a march today against Trump’s immigration ban. We had a few hundred people, which was pretty good since the march was at 4 in the afternoon. I went into work early this morning so that I could leave at 3:30. (I also have a really, really nice boss who’s supportive of stuff like this.)

    • davefragments

      Federal court in Washington State issued a TRO against the immigration E.O. nationwide about 2 hours ago

      • stickfigurefairytales

        HELL YEAH!! Now we just have to make sure that ruling is followed.

        • davefragments

          This is headed to SCOTUS. Too many courts and too many different decisions not to. . . What I don’t understand is why the administration isn’t filing for a writ now with the 8 member court. If Gorsuch is truly in the mold of Scalia then he won’t force the states to comply with an EO.
          But then, I’m not a legal scholar to have any more than an opinion about that.

          • Stephen Hutchison

            Depends on whether you believe that Bannon has his hand up the back of Drumpf in order to move him around, or if you believe that Drumpf came up with his special brand of narcissistic acting-out-as-President on his own. If you believe Bannon, who has declared his desire to bring down and utterly destroy the government and the establishment, is not-so-secretly puppeting Drumpf, then you get the “obviously he doesn’t want anything to be effective, it will cause more damage to wait.” If you believe Drumpf is actually making decisions, then it’s probably him being fundamentally ignorant of how things are done.

          • davefragments

            More political philosophy than I want to think about with a page update due.

          • *Lord Dampnut

          • And ‘old damp runt’

  • Checking up on updates/comments on two other comics with demons in them -each in their own way very different from this comic- and now back to watch the fight against Laampros again 🙂

    • Stephen Hutchison

      Which ones? EA and Demon House?

      • Demon of the Underground (futuristic settings where demonic presence is less physical, but there) and Wish & Will. Last is pure fantasy world, and demons are used as various kinds of servants for humans.

      • Btw, which one is EA?

  • Page is baking in the oven—and it’s a big ‘un! Should be up soon. 🙂

    • stickfigurefairytales

      Hmm, does that mean a two-page spread?

  • davefragments

    WOW — Patreon rumbles

    • davefragments

      double page

  • davefragments

    Here’s the link to the new page:

  • Justin White

    Fools who just took your eye!

  • Vincent

    I can’t tell what sort of turn of luck taking daggers to the groining is for Fluke. Definitely bad luck for the devil.

  • HoneyThistle

    Ooooh ouchie; right to the nads…
