Maximum effort!

So! Kyle is going after his father full-blast! Is he right? Can he make his fire the most powerful thing on the planet? And, even if he can, will it be enough?

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



  • davefragments

    There is power to be had and Kyle is taking it to Laampros.

  • Laampy might want to see someone about that burn(ing sensation)

  • Aaaaww yeah!!

    I’ve decided to just go with this and hope for the best for Kyle. It’s who he is.

  • Nate

    Go Kyle!

  • Kick his ass, Kyle!!

  • stickfigurefairytales

    Okay, but quit dying in the process, Kyle!

  • Nate

    This just popped into my head:

    “I am a servant of the Secret Fire, wielder of the flame of Anor! You cannot pass. The dark fire will not avail you, flame of Udun!”

    • I feel like I should know where that is from. But I can’t place it.

      • stickfigurefairytales

        Lord of the Rings! Gandalf says it to the Balrog in Fellowship of the Ring.

    • timemonkey

      So…Kyle’s about to die?

      • Nate

        Nah. He may get a snazzy new costume, tho. 😉

        • timemonkey

          He shall be Kyle of Many Colours.

          • Pietro7

            LOL! Rainbow costume for Kyle now.

          • Daveo


    • Curt Clark

      I’ll buy it. ^_^

    • Klaus

      “You shall not pass!” It fits perfectly.

  • Nirgal

    Nice booty in panel 2.

    • camelotcrusade

      Let’s focus on the important stuff, I agree.

  • Zephyr10101

    Azerath metrian synthos!

    • inukaiser

      hahaha i thought the same

  • Mary Klemzak

    Two things..

    1. That’s Kyle full blast? Guess he’s more powerful than Daddy Dearest on earth.

    2. Don’t you know, the ultimate goal of a parent is to IMPROVE upon their own design? Good job, that happened, you’re a success as a parent! You may now go home

  • jreed3842

    Get it, Kyle!!

  • Mariona

    Kick his ass? Language, young man! It’s not because one’s father is a demon, that one must forget his manners.

    (But yes, kick his ass Kyle!)

  • It got to hurt so much every time Kyle bends an arm or leg, with the pointy bones sticking out. His strength, both mentally and physical, is beyond amazing.

    • Kyle is going to be soooo sore after this.

    • Ant-Man

      why does it have 2 hurt so much ? he’s not 100% mortal- his outer appearance is just changing 2 match his demon ancestry- it’s in his dna_ maybe it’s like a baby tooth being replaced by an adult tooth- his human bone being replaced by a part demon bone ? he’s also shooting fire out of his body– is that burning him ?

  • TheManBehindTheCurtain

    From the look and angle of Kyle’s fire blast, Laampros is learning what a weenie roast is. 😛

  • Hamish C

    Sometimes the hybrid is stronger than the pureblood. Did you ever think that maybe your son got the best of both worlds, Mr Laampros? Of course not, you were all ‘True Fire’ this and ‘maggot abomination’ that. Wouldn’t even let him have his friends over for a barbecue … unless they were to be s’mores — which is just rude, let me tell you

    So, timeout! Back to Hell with you! You just think about what you’ve done for at least half a millennium.

    • AxisFlowerCouple

      Didn’t really think about That. But it’s like in the show Preacher, where the offspring between a demon and an angel is more powerful than God, so he just peaced, like “Fuck this shit, I’m out”

    • Toli Bera

      >Did you ever think that maybe your son got the best of both worlds, Mr Laampros?

      Kyle is Hannah Montana. Confirmed.

  • Jeff Baker

    Go, Kyle!

  • Jeldenil

    Kyle’s dad
    Kyle’s dad
    Kyle’s dad is on fire
    We don’t need no water, let the mf burn

  • bronakopdin

    The Problem’s now only that dad
    who bothers our heroes like mad
    so if all of our hate
    pushed him back through the gate
    I guess noone would actually be sad

    or so I think I heard someone say in Limmerick


  • Sapfo

    Go Kyle! 🙂

  • Saxon_Brenton

    I’m visualising those flames engulfing Red Hot not so much as stuff washing over him, but rather as little flickers of energy crawling over him ever which way. Kind of like the special effect used to depict electricity short circuits.
    In particular that lick of flame (pun intended) on Red’s lips in panel 3 crawling in and out of his mouth and briefly dancing across his teeth.

    • I like the way you’re visualizing that. Very cool. 🙂

  • Nirgal

    Hey, pssst, guys. Remember what kind of stimulation enhanced Kyle’s powers?

    Now it would be the best moment for him to get a boner and take care of it.

    Maybe he can defeat Laampros single-handed.

    • Geneva150

      Bahahaha! Love this comment!

    • This wins the Internet

    • Ant-Man

      i agree__ for kyle 2 truly have enuf power 2 defeat demon king- he will probably need spooky’s penis inside him_ or mitch’s penis with spooky adding/saying ‘i luv u’ or similar. or maybe kyle needs 2 b spit-roasted 2 truly, fully activate his highest power_ spooky in the butt, mitch in the mouth- and he can shoot ‘earth flame’ out of his penis like a fire hose- at daddy

  • Earl Patterson

    Daddy, you’re finished

    • Justice Pidgeons

      He’s fired.

  • Toli Bera

    He’s Too Hot (Hot damn!)

    Call the Po-Lice and the fireman

  • Karol Chmielewski

    I like the idea and Earth;s flame won’t hurt him as much as hell’s did.

  • karmakat

    hmmm roasted chest nuts? hehe

  • Juliette Leroux

    Yes, oh yes!

  • timemonkey

    The secret to victory is shooting your dad in the junk.

    • TheManBehindTheCurtain

      TrollHunter’s third rule: “When in doubt, kick ’em in the gronknuaghts.”

      Or in this case because Laampros is so tall, fire blast them instead.

    • Wayne Lunkwitz

      I have been gone too long…..and I come back to…….Chet’s nuts roasting over an open fire…….and it isn’t even Christmas yet!

  • So light ’em up, up, up~
    Light ’em up, up, up~
    Light’em up, up, up~
    I’m on FIRE! ~

    • Cipher

      Also relevant:
      “I’m in the de-details with the devil
      So now the world can never get me on my level
      I just gotta get you off the cage
      I’m a young lover’s rage
      Gonna need a spark to ignite”

  • J. Kevin Carrier

    He’s probably not thinking it now, but I bet afterwards, Laampos will look back on this and say, “Damn, that boy of mine is clever. Way to go, kid.”

  • Brian Hopkins

    Supposing Father is pushed back through the bone ring as others have predicted, I wonder what his parting shot will be? Maybe pulling Spooky back into Hell?

    • Klaus

      He may be arrogant enough to do it, but he will regret it if he does.

  • Ryan Pratt

    Wow. This is cool. Kyle’s flame on Earth is like Laampros’ flame is in Hell. It’s HIS power, HIS energy. Since he was raised on Earth, his fire might be more powerful than daddy’s, since Laampy doesn’t have experience using his flame on Earth, but Kyle does. And he’s finally not holding back at all.

  • Go Kyle! o/

  • D. G.

    Wow. I’m impressed. I didn’t think Kyle had a shot against his dad. But now that Kyle isn’t holding back, maybe Laampros will stop holding back. I wonder if he has other powers as well. *biting my nails

  • Curt Clark

    The pagan in me is gleeful about the idea of the planet fighting back against an invading force with Kyle as its conduit.

  • Ethan

    I don’t like the way this is looking for Kyle D:

  • KatKaleen

    You made me stop eating pizza. Kudos.

  • Well done! Nice play on Kyle’s expository dilemma and origin story: Though he has brought his power into the service of the team and of humanity, the arc of his life has not been about developing that power but about learning to control its potentially catastrophic destructiveness. Now that it’s down to planetary life or death: Let ‘er rip!

  • OnyxLight

    The wait for the update is going to be a nail biter!

    • Klaus

      Once again.

  • BertinDoutnik

    I want Anni back

  • Ethan Moore

    What is Kyle’s suit made of??
    Been through literal hell and back and its still kickin
    100% sure his costume is the true protagonist

    • Danny

      You’d have to ask Edna Mode. I mean, look at the lack of capes. Clearly she’s the genius behind the Young Protectors’ super suits.

      • Pietro7

        You can bet it’s machine washable, too – that’s a new feature. 🙂

  • Jac

    Firefighters HATE him!!

    • Angel Rosemond

      What happens next will warm your heart.

      • NoiseShaper

        …or leave nothing but scorched earth!

        • Pietro7

          That would be baaaaad.

  • JepMZ

    Even tho it’s a parody, I still vomited

    Ah! It didn’t reply to anyone, oh well

    Loving the new development!

  • I’m really mad. I started reading from the start a few hours ago not thinking I would end up reading all the comics to leave me with a cliffhanger! Gah! I need more!

    • Klaus

      Welcome to the discussion page.

    • Welcome! (And there will be more tomorrow night—along with “camping” in the comics by the awesome community here. 🙂 )

      I’m curious, how did you find us?

      • William Clapie

        I have sent you some links and or e-mails about your works being published on ISSUS. I haven’t seen a response? Is it ok for someone to do that?

        • I’m sorry, William. I haven’t received any emails about “ISSUS.” And I’m not familiar with what that is.

          Please try reaching out using the Email Alex link in the menu at the top of the page.

      • Thanks! I might camp next time. I found you guys through the advertising while I was reading Questionable Content. 🙂

    • Pietro7

      Join the group for camping tonight in anticipation of the new page around 7:30-to-9:30 PM Pacific Coast time, USA. We speculate, cheer, nibble cookies and dissect past pages with eager anticipation of the next one.

  • Anyway, I can’t believe Kyle has two daddies and I can’t even get ONE

  • T Dibbler

    Woo! Go Kyle!

  • Justin White

    That looks like it hurts, getting hot are we.

  • davefragments

    I watched Manchester By The Sea, Kenneth Lonergan’s beautiful and understated story of loss and family. This movie deserved every accolade it got.

    That being said — I look forward to the next page, hoping that Laampros will be returned to his own dimension in spectacular explosions of fire.

    • Pietro7

      Hear hear! From your fingertips to Alex’s eyes! We want some splashy demon-ass-kicking by our favorite firebender. Go Kyle!

  • Doki is going to miss camping due to being passed out.Have fun everyone.

    • Pietro7

      Bummer, Doki. We miss you! Dave will save you a cookie.

  • davefragments

    It’s the last day of February, the most despicable and lousy month of the year. This year, 2017, it began with the party of Punxsutawney Phil and ended in Mardi Gras.
    Well, I guess any month with two big parties can’t be that bad…

  • Pietro7

    Brought hot chocolate for camping. Its windy and cold here but the house is warm and tonight we get a new page, yay!
    By any chance, has anyone got sugarcookies? Time for an anticipatory sugar high. 🙂

    • davefragments

      I only have vanilla cookies with icing. Have a few.

      • Pietro7

        Icing! Yum! Thanks Dave. Have a mug of True Cocoa ™. I used dark chocolate and whole cream to make it – the spoon almost stands up.

    • Saxon_Brenton

      Hmm. As I look over my shoulder at the work area munchies table, I see that the Tim-tam biscuit fairy has dropped off a black-forest flavour packet, a salted caramel packet, and two mint packets. (Actually, they turned up at different times, so I think it was two Tim-tam biscuit fairies involved)
      So, everybody help themselves to virtual chockie bikkies.

      • Pietro7

        Mint and chocolate? Huzzah for Saxon!

    • Mariona

      A bit late, but if anyone still wants cookies. I have homemade macarons and chocolate cookies.

      • davefragments

        oooh, macaroons

        • Mariona

          Please help yourself!
          I’m actually quite proud of myself that I got them to look just right this time. XD

          • davefragments

            My baking skills consist of buying loaves of pre-baked bread and “baking” them for 8 or 9 minutes in the oven. I can cook but I can’t bake. Tried and will never do that to myself again.

          • Pietro7

            Awesome macaroons, Mariona! (Nom nom).

      • Morgan

        I will take a macaroon if there are any left!

        • Mariona

          Of couse! Please take as many as you like!

    • Morgan

      Didn’t plan well for tonight… But I have a few Reese’s minis and chocolate Ovaltine if anyone wants some, haha.

  • Morgan

    Late to camp, but it looks like I made it. How is everyone?

    • davefragments

      Doing OK.

    • Mariona

      Hello! I’m fine and you?

      • Morgan

        Pretty great! Looking forward to tonight’s page. I always love Tuesdays and Fridays because it’s like “Oh!!! Update tonight!!!”

  • davefragments

    patreon rumbles…
    start looking for the new page

  • davefragments

    New page is up…

    and my fingers fumble around the keyboard again
