165 Comments on The Young Protectors: Engaging The Enemy Chapter 5—Page 54

Sometimes, even in victory, a price must be paid…

Over on the Patreon Page, in honor of our heroic magic user, I’ve posted an extra special Flashback Friday pin-up — it’s the SFW Spooky Jones Romance Card pin-up art. Linework is by Adam DeKraker, colors are by Alex Sollazzo, and it’s one of my absolute favorite Spooky pin-ups. Here’s a sneak preview of that:

$5+ Patrons can download the full pin-up immediately. And $10+ Patrons will be sent a high-res version with over double the resolution on the 10th of May!

There are lots of great benefits to being a Patron (you can see them all here along with an explanation of what the heck Patreon is), and you’d really be helping me out if you became one too. 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! Flyboy still can’t hear a heartbeat or anything else coming from Spooky. And Commander can’t sense any thoughts or brain activity. And now she’s telling Kyle to stop.

Should he listen? Is Spooky truly gone? And if so, what will that mean for Kyle?

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

 

  • Kiss him so he lives!

    • Toli Bera

      And you don’t know why but he’s dying so try! Go on and kiss the guy!

  • Also! Don’t listen. Do everything you can.

    • Sapfo

      *heart breaking*

  • Skudplastr

    Amanda don’t be a quitter! Unless you have a previously undisclosed smoking habit you want to stop, in which case you have my full support.

  • DonnaC

    Kyle’s already shown he does not give up.

  • Pietro7

    I’m waiting for Anando to put in an appearance. Somebody’s got to be home. Right? Right?

    • I am REALLY hoping I’m right on that theory, if that is what it takes to solve this. That Anaado is in there, and Spooky hasn’t just secretely been ‘absorbing’ the demonic magic/power from the demons he’s slayed.

      (Which he still could have, to gain more magic/power, just like he’s kept his demonic ‘pets’ a secret until earlier that day)

      • timemonkey

        I feel the same way about that as when people theorised that Mitch’s psychic boyfriend was going to show up to help: it’d be bad storytelling to save everything at the last moment with a character who wasn’t even in the story.

  • davefragments

    I’m don’t know what to say to this page.
    The outlook is certainly bleak.

  • stickfigurefairytales

    Don’t listen to her, Kyle!

    • stickfigurefairytales

      Well, under normal circumstances do listen to her. Commander’s an excellent leader. But just don’t listen in this one particular instance!

  • Eris, elder daughter of Nyx

    I believe in you, Kyle and Spooky!

  • Don’t give up just yet Kyle!

  • Nate

    Wahhh!!! :'(

  • Jeldenil

    I’m pretty sure that he won’t give up just yet.

  • Emily Red

    close up on his face? I think spooky’s lips are begging to be kissed! that’s how he awakens Kyle hurry up!

  • fujoshifanatic

    Flyboy’s face in the second to last panel…he looks like how I feel…I can’t right now. Not Spooky! D-:

  • Foye

    Cheap and cliche death if it is one.

    • Foelhe

      Cliche how?

      • Yakno, the usual souls-clumped-up-brain cliché slow death ¬_¬

  • motordog

    Can we now see Spooky fight the entity of Death itself to save both himself and the souls of the hostages, returning at the end of his own mini-arc, alive and triumphant. Please?

  • eldestdawn

    HEY!! Put our hearts back, you can’t just go ripping them out like that!!

  • I’m waiting intensely for the next page, and what that will bring. I really want to be correct here, in my refusal that Spooky is forever gone.

    • Kate G

      I’ll sing those earworm, 90s heartbreak songs. You know, “Unbreak my Heart” by Toni Braxton. Man, every single time that song came on…it was stuck in my head for weeks.

      OMG, I can hear it in my head right now and I haven’t heard it in years. Stoooooooooop. Okay, time to go back to Bill Nye. Must. Stop. Toni. Braxton. NOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

      • Heh! Now I’m remembered of a couple weeks ago. Heard a German translation remake of the song. It just sounded so ‘wrong’ even though the singer was good.

        • Kate G

          Toni Braxton’s “Unbreak My Heart” in German. I think it’s just too iconic to be heard in another language without sort of “raging” on the inside like, “NO! THAT’S NOT HOW THE SONG GOES! IT’S *sings in English*” LOL.

          Katherine Jenkins – a rather popular Welsh pop opera singer (aka trained in opera, couldn’t make it, turned into a pop singer with opera flare) – once did a version of “I Will Always Love You,” aka the Bodyguard song aka one of the most iconic songs of the 90s EVER. She had I believe, the chorus in English and the rest in Italian. That inner rage dialogue happened. It’s a beautiful rendition, don’t get me wrong (and Jenkins has a beautiful voice), but it just sounds so wrong in Italian. XD

    • Klaus

      According to one of the text stories, Anaado is not in there.

      • Hmm, I need to find and re-read those. Been a while. I think something is in there, even if not him.

  • Samurai Jack

    C’mon, Fluke, get in there!

  • Airboy Obsessed

    Oh man I hope not, because then his sacrifice would have been TOTAL waste because the hostages’ souls were lost too 🙁

  • camelotcrusade

    He’s still floating, so there’s still some magic in that hat boy. ✨

    • Cipher

      I thought that said hot and not hat at first… xD

  • Juliette Leroux

    Nonono. No. Just no, Amanda. Let Kyle try all he can. If this doesn’t work, there will be an eternity to put him down and let him go. A very sad and heartbreaking eternity. Now is not the time to let go yet – there’s still hope !

    • Foelhe

      Yeah, still not convinced this is it. Might be, but I definitely wouldn’t be giving up yet if I were Kyle, not as long as Spooky’s still holding on to those souls.

  • He’s still holding the souls. There’s got to be something left to do that, even if it’s his own soul. And if he thought he could put those souls back where they belonged, maybe someone can do the same for him.

  • melanie powers

    Spooky better not be dead. Kyle needs a boyfriend who’s not a giant evil dick.

    • Glitch te Kitten

      He can’t date his dad

      • Richard Grant Muir

        He wouldn’t be. He’d simply be dating someone OLD enough to be his dad. It’s actually a great experience, let me tell you. Plus, you’re not going to get better looking than Silver Fox Anni.

        • Glitch te Kitten

          Haha, I know my old bf was a December bf and I was making a joke about his dad being evil and having a giant dick

        • Glitch te Kitten

          Also I am so down for them to get back together

    • Richard Grant Muir

      Anni is an antihero. He was doing the wrong thing for the right reasons. And he clearly DOES care about Kyle. I liked them together. Nothing wrong with a little May/December romance.

      • melanie powers

        First off, I never had an issue with the age difference in the comic. IRL, I might think it’s a bit weird, but I’ve got no issue with two (or more) consenting adults letting their freak flag fly. And in comic (or other such fictional) universes, age differences in relationships don’t bother me at all really…as long as it’s not done in a creepy way.

        On another note, for a while, I thought it might be okay if he got back together with Anni if he was really apologetic and jumped through the most difficult of hoops to try and make it up to Kyle. But the more I think about it, the more I feel like Kyle getting back with Anni would be like when a victim of abuse gets back together with their abuser because they feel like no one else can or will ever love them.

        Whereas we know that Kyle and Spooky truly care about and respect each other. Also, Spooky was the perfect combination of supportive and “no, I won’t put up with your bullshit” when Kyle called for help after Anni summoned Lampros (sp?) for the first time. So, I really think they’re a much better fit together.

        Quick disclaimer: In no way do I want this to come off as something like friendship is a consolation prize. I just don’t like Anni/Kyle as a couple and I do like Spooky/Kyle as a potential one.

        • Richard Grant Muir

          Clearly. I’m the opposite; I prefer Anni/Kyle over Spooky/Kyle. I like Spooky lots, there just doesn’t seem to be ANY basis for romantic feelings between them. IF it happens, it’d feel like forced fanservice IMHO.

          • melanie powers

            I can respect that opinion. And in a way, I can see where it’s coming from. And in the case it was a forced fan service relationship, I think I’d prefer to see Kyle remain single. Maybe date around and find a nice boyfriend. But that has it’s own complications too. So…¯_(ツ)_/¯

  • TwilightDreamer

    T_T…….no words…only tears….

  • Rin

    NOOOOOOOOO YOU BETTER NOT TAKE SPOOKY AWAY FROM ME

  • Madock345

    I AM VERY NOT OK WITH THIS

  • Will Parkinson

    Yeah, you’d better pull a damn rabbit out of that hat!

  • Adi Zeller

    Either Amanda or Kyle need to kiss the Spooks. That’ll wake the beauty up!

  • Klaus

    Now Anaado will be sad ;-(

  • Froya

    Is it Wednesday yet because I need it to be Wednesday

    • Klaus

      Soon now.

  • Froya

    Man I hope hope HOPE this is like when we thought Kyle was going to be impaled a few pages ago

  • azoreseuropa

    He will live.. I have seen it before.

    • ♫And I’ll see it aga-a-a-ain♪

  • James Dinh

    I’m confused by the mini spooky floating behind the cap in the bottom left panel.

  • Mary Klemzak

    Noooooooooo!!! I refuse to believe it! No no no no no no no no no!

  • Mary Klemzak

    Or! Or! Or! He just needs time. Yeah.

    *bites nonexistent nails even shorter*

    • Klaus

      He is pining for the fjords.

  • Szymon Brycki

    NOOOOOOOOOES : < : < : < : < : <

  • Pikinanou

    Putting him down might be difficult, he’s floating…

  • Jet Allen

    …What?

    I mean… how would either one of them be a “princess,” exactly? They’re both guys.

    • Skudplastr

      Haha they’re not, I’m just poking fun at Spooky.

  • Jet Allen

    Have you tried unplugging it and plugging it back in?

    Failing that, I don’t think Kyle’s resorted to the tried-and-true “shake them and slap them” method yet.

    • Klaus

      Or chicken soup.

  • Zephyr10101

    You’re lying though. Spooky has plot armor. The most glamorous of the land

    • Klaus

      You are most likely right. But then again, maybe not. But you are very likely right.

    • Froya

      A story arc with Spooky as the main character would be sooo gooood! There’s so much potential there.

  • Jet Allen

    Depends on what he’s plugging into where.

  • Abyssdoor

    Kiss him (Demon-) Prince Charming, that works according to Disney, right?

  • karmakat

    for EFFING FREAKING GODDESS SAKE! KISS THE DARN SLEEPING SPOOKY BEAUTY ALREADY! GROPE AND KISS HIM IF YOU RATHER!!!!

  • jreed3842

    D:

  • Froya

    Is it just me or is this the first time Kyle has shown any romantic-ish feelings for Spooky? It really came as a surprise to me when Laampros pointed it out. Anyone else agree or am I the one who needs to re-read the comic?

    • Klaus

      He has not shown anything. Other than remarkable restraint, as revealed in the truth or dare comic.

      • Froya

        I suppose Kyle didn’t figure it out himself until just now.

        • Richard Grant Muir

          Honestly, it feels more like fan service. Like, so many people were shipping Kyle & Spooks that it was decided to be brought into the plot.

          • timemonkey

            I doubt it, we’ve never been given an indication that the story has been changed from the original plan.

            And way back Alex gave us some general spoilers and this more or less lines up.

          • Richard Grant Muir

            The 11th hour revelation that Kyle has a thing for Spooky sure FEELS like a ‘change from the original plan’. I guess I missed the spoilers. It’s not like I have anything against Spooky, but I was hoping this was also a “road to redemption” story for Anni.

          • NoiseShaper

            I’m at least not very keen on his abusive relationship with Kyle. That’s pretty much scorched earth by now, as literally as it could be on every possible level.

            Which doesn’t say that Anni couldn’t have an opportunity for at least partial redemption on his own…

            But as far as we’ve seen so far, Spooky seems to be straight, if still a close friend to Kyle.

          • Richard Grant Muir

            Don’t get me wrong, Anni is a conniving, manipulative bastard. But he’s shown he actually does care for Kyle, and literally everything he was doing was to save the Earth. The best anti-heroes are the ones that to the wrong thing for the right reason. He reminds me a lot of Emma Frost, in that regard. That’s why I’d love to see redemption. It doesn’t HAVE to include Kyle romantically, but it’d be nice to have it as a possibility/romantic tension.

            And you’re right, Spooky’s only shown heteronormative tendencies, which at best might make him bisexual (which IS possible). But he certainly came across as straight through the comic run, just very secure with himself.

          • timemonkey

            If Duncan wants redemption then he’s going to prison, not anywhere near Kyle.

            The spoilers never said who but they did say Kyle would get a love interest, and since the characters in the story are few and it was revealed Mitch has a boyfriend then Spooky makes the most sense of the remaining characters. And the Truth or Dare comic gave some hints Kyle was attracted to Spooky, though it wasn’t until this chapter we learned how much.

          • Richard Grant Muir

            It’s really, REALLY rare when villains go to prison in comics for “redemption”. Usually it’s just heroes who did something stupid, like Justice of the New Warriors.

            You’re right, out of who’s been shown in the comic, Spooky makes the most sense (only since Flyboy is also Jailbait Boy). 😛

          • Klaus

            That would depend on where they are. Age if consent varies wildly over the United States.

          • Froya

            Oh I don’t know, he has managed to stay out of prison before. Even without his super powers I don’t think he will go to prison unless he decides that he deserves it/thinks it will redeem him somehow. I think it’s more likely that he tries something else to get redemption if that’s what he wants. As to WHAT that may be, I have no idea.

    • Richard Grant Muir

      In the flashback series where Kyle is cuddling with Spooky, he seems to show attraction, if not romantic interest.

      • Froya

        Now that you mention it..He also seems pretty shy/uncomfortable about Spooky touching him in that chapter…:)

        • Richard Grant Muir

          Of course, he was closeted at the time, so it seemed like a reaction he’d have from ANY guy touching him. IIRC/IMHO, there was NO buildup/mention of Kyle being attracted to Spooky until Llampros 11th hour dumped it on us plot device-style.

          • Froya

            Makes sense.

          • Jet Allen

            There was, though. Truth-or-dare comic, he’s shown kissing Spooky while holding him in bed. And even before Laampros points out his feelings, Kyle generally shows a lot of concern for Spooky in that battle, moreso than he shows the others.

            Hell, the way he’s overjoyed to see Spooky alright (back before the soul-inhalation thing occurs) seemed suspect, considering while he certainly cares about his other teammates a great deal, he seemed PARTICULARLY happy about Spooky being okay.

            I mean, if you don’t like the pairing, or if you’re upset you didn’t pick up on it beforehand and are blaming the author – fine, but at least admit it, huh?

          • Richard Grant Muir

            I read the truth or dare comic and NEVER saw any kissing. I’ll have to re-read it to see if I was just drunk or something. I have nothing against them as a couple, if there is actually some background for it. I haven’t seen it, and I can usually pick up on these things fairly well. I wouldn’t be “upset” i missed something, but if it’s that subtle that it’s EASY to miss, then yes, I have to say that it will feel like a “last ditch plot change”, which by definition goes to the author. Again, I didn’t say it was BAD, just sudden.

    • maya chan

      I never seen it coming until his father said he love him, out of no where. has for the flash backs, the cuddles didn’t seem romantic to me. they seem more like a very close brothers.
      but yeas, I guess the father was right? even if there is little to no build for them.
      Spooky did encourage him after the betrayal, but again it seem more like what a “best friend”, “big brother” will say then a lover or romantic partner. I don’t know, I just didn’t felt them too much has a couple 0-0

  • Joshie

    Flyboy is so shocked

    • Klaus

      As is Tsunami.

  • Jason Moon

    Man, this is “THEY KILLED WASH!” levels of sad. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BnnCQlp2msk

    • firechild

      Oh man let’s hope he’s not following the footsteps of Joss McChartcterkill Whedon

  • Richard Grant Muir

    I don’t believe for a second Spooky is dead. He’s arguably the most popular character IN this comic, lol. But it would certainly change the game if he didn’t make it. I half-expect Kyle to give Spooky all of his life-force to bring him out of it. A worthy sacrifice, for a lot of people.

  • Richard Grant Muir

    Hmm, is Alex pulling a Whedon and turning Spooky into the Tara death no one saw coming?! Unlikely. But It would be quite the Pyrrhic victory.

  • David Welbourn

    I don’t believe yet that Spooky is dead. Like, I don’t quite understand the mystical physics involved, but if Spooky is dead, why is he still floating? Also, I would like to see what his open eyes currently look like. And, uh, regarding the suggestion to put Spooky down, that’s a bit difficult with a floating body. But possibly getting Spooky to actually touch the *ground* might help?

    Oh, and guys? If Spooky is really dead (or if Kyle truly begins to believe it), you all might want to take three very large steps back. Just as a precaution, eh?

    • Shadizar Silvermask

      Well ‘dead’ comes in a number of options, one option is ‘the heart’s still beating but the brain’s not there anymore’. So he could be floating, still holding the souls, but what makes him him could have died in the effort to sustain the other souls leaving his mind an empty void. But that doesn’t seem like a path the comic would take, it could but doesn’t seem likely.

      • NoiseShaper

        He may have crawled deep into that “hole” to protect himself, so he may just need a bit more time to climb back out of it again…

  • Wayne Lunkwitz

    I wonder if we will now join “It’s a Wonderful Afterlife”……already in progress.

  • Saxon_Brenton

    I’ve been thinking about this since yesterday afternoon, and the main thing I’ve got is this vigentte:
    Commander tells Red Hot to just put Spooky down. Red gets a look of grief and regret on his face, and nods, says “Goodbye, Spooky” and kisses him gently on the forehead in farewell.
    Then Spooky gives a huge hacking cough as he violently draws breath and scares the crap out of everyone. The other Young Protectors are variously relieved, incredulous (“Seriously? Love’s true kiss? We’re going there?”) or outraged (Commander goes: “Spooky! You set that up deliberately, didn’t you?” because after the not-a-bear incident she isn’t going to put anything past him)
    And Spooky’s looking around going, “What? Tell me what I’m supposed to have done, this time.”

    Now come on, admit it. This is what you’re all hoping for, isn’t it?

    But I did have a weirder thought. Back in ep.6 of the hellsnake fanfic I had the hellsnakes talk about Spooky in the present rather than the past tense. So I must dare to ask the silly and self-indulgent question: Is Spooky’s death a hasty attempt by Alex to make Shane And The Hellsnakes out of continuity?
    (ducks and runs away)

  • Shiny Gwilly

    this is a very sad page, and well done overall! i’d like to take a moment though
    we saw hints of possible romantic feelings in the truth or dare comic, and for the most part, yeah, the demon daddy reveal was a shock all around (to characters and readers), but i don’t think it’s completely out of nowhere
    a couple/few things are possible! you can be pretty much in love with a friend and they would never know since you never showed/said anything remotely romantic, i know this from personal experience, so…Kyle could’ve felt this way all along but was scared for several reasons
    it could also be that deep down he had these feelings but he never thought it thru, or WANTED to think it thru, until demon daddy had to come along and blurt it all out and now he’s thinking “he was right, i do feel that way, and of course i didn’t realize it fully until right f-ing now”
    just felt like putting my two cents on the matter dkjfgd
    *anxiously waits for wednesday*

  • Dennis Grace

    Time for Kyle and the Commander to go to Hell to retrieve Der Spookster.

    • timemonkey

      Then after a grueling arc they barely survive it suddenly occurs to them that there’s no reason for Spooky to have been in hell at all.

  • Surely, Commander doesn’t mean ‘put him down’ like my parents put Beethoven down D°= thoughtheysaidhewasgoingtoliveonafarmandionlylearnedwhathappenedwhenthe neighboursdogdugunderthercedartreeandtheboneswerealltherewithbeetsmedal

  • Richard Grant Muir

    I see no reason why Anni would lie; plus, in the scene’s he had with Platinum Princess, they talked about it. Anni clearly had reservations, though PP didn’t.

  • Justin White

    NO! KEEP TRYING(breath)

  • Ant-Man

    it will take True Love’s Kiss 2 wake Spooky

  • Ant-Man

    or maybe they’ll have to go 2 hell 2 bring spooky’s soul back ?
    they will discover the demon king hate fukking spooky for revenge.

  • Ryan Pratt

    Just kiss him, Kyle! True Love’s Kiss wakes ANYONE!

  • Derkins

    Keep yelling at him Kyle! Don’t listen to the doubters!

  • Grace

    ummm, is it just me or is hat spooky not wearing pants…

  • Grace

    was talking about the little spooky on the hat not actual spooky ;P

    • NoiseShaper

      Ah, that one!

    • Saxon_Brenton

      Ah. In that case, no, it is not just you.
      Stylised cartoon ghost Spooky Jones does not wear pants (unless he’s wearing a suspiciously white onesie under his hoodie and trenchcoat 🙂

  • Daveo

    Nope. Not gonna end badly. THIS I am SURE of!! 😉

    • Nofsky8

      Thank you for being sure, it makes me feel better, 🙂

  • davefragments

    The Jeopardy contestant, who won again today, revealed that he has a stuffed Platypus collection. That’s not a typo. On that observation,
    How is everyone tonight?

    • Nofsky8

      Good, that Platypus collection sounds creepy, also fell asleep last time I tried to camp and it’s just now occurred to me that I live in a different time zone than California and have no idea at what time the new page actually normally drops even in it’s own time zone.

      • davefragments

        I live in the eastern time zone (Pittsburgh PA) and the page goes up between 10pm and 12pm my time. New York City is in the Eastern Time zone, too.

        • Nofsky8

          I live in the same time zone (DC/Maryland area), 🙂 Thanks! I was afraid I’d have to stay really late and I have a test tomorrow.

          • davefragments

            Test first. Page second.
            University, I presume.

          • Nofsky8

            Good guess, but nah, high school, if I was at a college I wouldn’t have to get so early, and I’ll keep that in mind. 🙂

          • davefragments

            What subject? If I can be so nosy.

          • Nofsky8

            It’s fine! Math, my school has a really weird math system, it your in honors math as a kid you take pre-algebra, algebra 1 and geometry in middle school, leaving only algebra 2 and calc. in high school even though your required by the state to sit in a math class all 4 years. Anyhow, I’m just taking the 3rd and final section of the standardized state test tomorrow. It’s not very hard.

          • davefragments

            Math is near and dear to me. Numbers dance and give me delight. It is the base of all things scientific and technical

          • Nofsky8

            🙂 Yeah, I like math too. It’s something that doesn’t really change, but can be applied everywhere!

          • davefragments

            I was the kid round about 12 or 13 who said “When I grow up I want to be a chemical engineer.”

          • Nofsky8

            Cool! So you like science too?

          • davefragments

            I spent 30 years turning coal to oil and then gasoline. If I could have gotten the research that I wanted to do into hindered diffusion in alumina catalysts, I never would have retired. Sadly, coal will never be made into gasoline because it is too expensive.

          • Nofsky8

            Oohh, wow! That’s still pretty cool though!

          • davefragments

            Make your career what gives you joy and thrills you.

          • Nofsky8

            Yep! 🙂

    • Saxon_Brenton

      I presume that you a collection of animals that have been taxadermically stuffed, not a collection of plush toys shaped like platypodes.

      • davefragments

        IT’s his collection. He admitted on the air that one of them was there for years and one day he discovers that it had a secret compartment in its belly that concealed a baby platypus, also taxidermy-ied. (however that word is spelled, you get the idea)

    Guys…. I have been on the edge of my seat for this next page….
    Like I came here sometime last night and was like “Oh dammit…. It’s only Monday”
    But now I am here and ready to camp! I am not even playing Zelda in order to give this my full attention this evening! Haha.

    But… Anyway how is everyone?

      OK. 400 words of good revision OK today.

      • jreed3842

        Are you writing something? What were you revising?

        • davefragments

          A short story about the two maintenance men on a freighter in outer space.

          • Nofsky8

            Oooo, that sound really interesting,

          • jreed3842

            I was about to say the same thing.
            I would totally read that.

          • davefragments

            thanks

          • davefragments

            One day it will be published.
            It’s got about 500 words before it is done.

          • jreed3842

            Where will you get it published! Be sure to let us know when it is! I’d like to read it.
            Have you published any other works?

          • davefragments

            I’m not sure about any of that yet.
            I have published short stories.

          • Nofsky8

            Where?

          • davefragments
          • Nofsky8

            Excuse me while I slip away to read these.

      Great. Having a quiet Wednesday as my rostered day off. Got back from a morning of semi-randomly wandering around Sydney on the buses in order to get out of the house. Got role playing gaming this evening.

      However as soon as finish this cup of tea I need to go and do the grocery shopping, in order to be here for when the page drops.

    • Nofsky8

      Good, had testing all morning, but got to go to a fun club at laugh the antics of upperclassman all lunch.

      • jreed3842

        Ahhh. It’s always nice to relax with a few good laughs after a day of testing!!

        • Nofsky8

          Yep! I forgot to ask, how are you?

          • jreed3842

            I’m great. Had an easy day at work today. We were not busy at all….
            Now… I’m just nervous about what comes next in this comic… I have been a wreck waiting for this page. Haha

          • Nofsky8

            Ack, me too, I’m pretty sure some of my friends think I’ve gone mad (more so than usual).

    • Curt Clark

      I know what you mean. I just started the first Dark Souls game a couple of days ago, and I really love it — but I’m not touching it right now.
