The Young Protectors: Engaging The Enemy Chapter 5—Page 60

225 Comments on The Young Protectors: Engaging The Enemy Chapter 5—Page 60

Methinks someone senses another kiss coming…

Just a few days ago, over on the Patreon Page, I shared the NSFW version of Spooky Jones’ Romance Card pin-up art. Linework is again by Adam DeKraker, and colors are by Alex Sollazzo. And this time, Spooky is completely, totally, fully-frontally nude!

(Except for the cap, of course—Spooky loves that cap.)

Here’s a sneak preview of the pin-up:

Want to see what Spooky looks like naked? (And drawn by canon, Young Protectors penciler Adam DeKraker?) $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 June!

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! Spooky’s good. Kyle is awesome. All is well in the world.

Who’s that wanting to cut in?

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

  • stickfigurefairytales

    Hahahaha, oh Kyle!

  • MOAR KISSES!!

  • jreed3842

    I ship it… I ship it so hard.

    • stickfigurefairytales

      Same.

      • So what is the name of the ship? Spooky Hot? Hot Spooky? Asking, you know, for a friend.

        • stickfigurefairytales

          Hmm, an excellent question!

        • jreed3842

          Red Spooks? Red Jones? Kyle Jones? Literally-the-cutest-couple-ever? All very reasonable ship names. Hahah

        • Jac

          “Absolutely Adorable”

        • stickfigurefairytales

          Aw, man! I was trying to brainstorm ideas and it occurred to me that Paul and Spooky could have the utterly fantastic ship name of “Flukey Jones” and now I’m upset not to have the chance to use that.

        • Morgan

          I like Spooky Hot

          • Me too!

          • stickfigurefairytales

            If we flip that pattern, we’d get “Red Jones” which to me sounds like the name of a pirate captain.

          • Arrr, matey!1

          • stickfigurefairytales

            Avast! They be flyin’ the flag o’ Red Jones, the scurvy dogs!

          • If it ain’t the flames it be the hell magic.. never mess with the Red Jones.

          • Of course I now want to know what a Red Jones flag looks like

          • stickfigurefairytales

            Fanart submissions are officially open, everyone!

        • Airboy Obsessed

          Hooky?

          • jreed3842

            Hehehehe. This one is my favorite.

          • stickfigurefairytales

            Kyooky?

        • Ky-ky

          .. or Sexy Kys (pronounced almost like kiss)

        • Nate

          I like “Pyromantic”.

          Runners up include “Hotkey” and “Hellbros” (which is short for “Awesome Empowered By Hell Bros”)

        • marcus erronius

          Quite late here, but I wanna say kooky, pronounced like the baked confection. Because they’re​ so sweet together

          • Heh, I thought of that one too. Think it was a suggestion a while ago when this topic also came up. Can’t remember if it was by me or someone else.

        • Sal Wolffs (Garnasha)

          Spookyle?

    • Eris, elder daughter of Nyx

      I’ve never shipped anything that’s become cannon before, so I have to ask this question . . .

      Is it still shipping if it becomes cannon?

  • davefragments

    “But I only have eyes for you,” says Spooky and Kyle

  • Jac

    Yeah, yeah, we’re all good over here. Yep. No complaints!

  • stickfigurefairytales

    Kyle’s line reminded me of Han Solo in the first Star Wars movie: “We’re fine. We’re all fine here now, thank you. How are you?”

  • Chris Dangerfield

    OMG you guys make me so happy. Thank you Alex, Adam and Vero. That is beautiful. Just right…. “Uh guys?” LOVE IT.

  • Nofsky8

    So cute! Also, I’m mildly concerned about the still tied up hostages.

    • stickfigurefairytales

      Well, they’re alive again, so they’re definitely doing better than they were.

      • Nofsky8

        Snort, true!

        • stickfigurefairytales

          Basically, their day can only go up from here.

          • Nofsky8

            Haha, lmao,

        • Chris Dangerfield

          It’s just so hard to relax and appreciate a good snogging session when you’ve still got duct tape over your mouth! I get that.

          Dudes let’s finish up the work…… (d’awwwwwwwww)

  • davefragments

    Is this like – “uh, help everyone else or get a room”

    • jreed3842

      Amanda is all “Like… Kyle, I get it. Spooky is hot… but can you stop making out for like three seconds and untie those hostages?”

  • Ulysses Paxton

    I think we’re all kind of awesome, too, after seeing the looks Kyle and Spooky have for each other! Hooray! Now to learn what was going with Spooky while the battle was raging.

    And what has happened to ol’ Anni? Did he just fade away? Still plenty of story to go.

  • “.. Helloo! Just over here. What is going on. What are you doing?”

    *lol* They’re so damn adorable. First things first. A little moment, healing and finding each other again, then the focus can switch to world crisis afterwards.

  • Jac

    This conversation just strikes me as so hilariously nonchalant. You know, just a regular day at the office!

    • Jac

      Everyone met my weird dad, and I came out and got a boyfriend all at once! Boy, what a day.

      • stickfigurefairytales

        Oh, and saved the world. Y’know, the usual.

        • Jac

          What, like it’s hard?

          • stickfigurefairytales

            A++++++ reference

          • Chris Dangerfield

            +++++

          • Nofsky8

            Wait, what is being referenced?

          • stickfigurefairytales

            Legally Blonde! Such an awesome movie. And musical.

          • Jac

            Yep!

          • jreed3842

            I was just listening to a song from the musical today! I love the soundtrack, but never actually have seen the show.

          • stickfigurefairytales

            Me either, sadly.

          • Chris Dangerfield

            Donne you click your last year’s Prada’s at meeeeeee.

          • stickfigurefairytales

            Not a quote from the film but related: “Haley, this is real life, not an excellent movie.”

          • Chris Dangerfield

            Yeah I was afraid I was losing track, but isn’t that the moment when the gay witness is at the drinking fountain and she realizes he’s WAY gay? Or is that a different film… sequel? Oh dear……… anyway it made me laugh.

          • Nofsky8

            One more movie on the must watch list.

          • Derkins

            Omg I forgot I love that movie. Watching it literally right now. Thanks. ^.^

          • stickfigurefairytales

            To be fair, Jac deserves the credit for making the reference in the first place. 🙂

          • Derkins

            Yeah but I didn’t catch that specific reference (had been too log since I’ve seen it). Needed it to be spelled out for me :p

      • Chris Dangerfield

        Okay this may win the best familial super hero comment award evah!
        Dad yeahhhhhhhh… Oh and the gay thing…. (Let’s go kiss some more).

  • stickfigurefairytales

    Haha, true.

  • Morgan

    Oh, these boys. My heart just grew three sizes this day.

    • stickfigurefairytales

      Mine too. <3

  • If this is more than Spooky feeling that Kyle deserved a big healing tongue smooch, for all he just went through, and saving Spooky, one thing can be concluded.

    Spooky has been with a lot of women, but for men I got to say that it looks like he has a type: Red, hot, cute demon boys.

    Anaado and possibly Kyle, if this IS happening. I see a theme here, even if it’s no more than kissing 😉

  • stickfigurefairytales

    It’s a really good thing Kyle DIDN’T grow a tail along with his other demonic additions, or he’d have a really embarrassing hole in his costume now.

    • Sarah Michaels

      But it could have other uses…. like balancing

      • stickfigurefairytales

        Well, not after it disappeared.

  • kuku

    I love how Spooky can’t keep from cupping Kyle’s cheek.

  • Sapfo

    Drinking tea and feeling the romance in the air ❤️
    No better way to start the day

  • Soooo, I guess Spooky has a preference for hot demon boys??

    • Sarah Michaels

      Who doesn’t?

    • *lol* was saying that too, just below. IDK if two is a type, but it looks like a type 😉

      • Haha, yeah, I put that down and then noticed that you made the same observation.

  • Odysseus154

    Plot twist, the Annihilator’s body was destroyed in the explosion, Spooky scooped it up, now his spirit refuses to leave and has possessed Spooky!

    • NoiseShaper

      He’d probably have a hard time, though, impersonating Spooky convincingly enough to fool Kyle and the others…

      • Madock345

        He probably wouldn’t know magic either.

        • NoiseShaper

          Yeah, he seemed to delegate that to Sircea, and according to her it would have been risky to try anyway.

    • jreed3842

      D:

  • Pietro7

    Don’t know if this is my imagination, but ISTM that Kyle looks like an even-more-awesomely-ripped slab of beefcake since the fight with Lampros. Did he lose some body-fat from all the efforts he put forth?
    And Spooky looks exhausted. I don’t think he’s doing ‘well’ so much as ‘this is a lot better than being dead’. I hope he can heal himself of whatever ills he may have contracted from his stint as a soul-refrigerator.

  • Larkle

    No. Don’t interrupt. Let them make out more.

  • Wayne Lunkwitz

    I could see the leader of the group blurting out ……save people now make out later!

  • Neceros

    Can we all just appreciate that Kyle clearly has no idea what to do with his hands? So relatable.

    • Auntie Mumpsimus

      I love the combo of your Morpheus gravatar and your comment.

  • Jeldenil

    Time to cut some captives lose, I wager.

  • Cman65

    How many men are in you right now Spooky?

    • bandanajack

      you didn’t really ask that question, did you?

      • Kate G

        *puts on Backstreet Boys* EVERYBODY!!!!

    • NoiseShaper

      I guess Kyle could just check with his newfound ability.

  • melanie powers

    Unnecessarily long face caressing feels my heart with joy <3

    • bandanajack

      you should check out yuzuvier, or the combined names of twice world champions (each) figures yuzuru hanyu and javier fernadez, they are exceptionally intimate with each other even as they challenge each other on the ice.

      • melanie powers

        Are you trying to tell me Yuri on Ice is real? O.o

        • bandanajack

          in a way, only real humans with a different course unfolding. for one thing i don’t believe yuri on ice has a gay former national if not world champion as the coach training them both (who seems quite amused at them with each other) and while one may be more flowery than the other they are both fiercely competitive, while at the same time utterly supportive. tv cameramen know to keep an eye on yuzu as he body skates through javi’s routines willing him to remain upright. it is adorable. go to tumblr under yuzuvier and you will see countless examples of their friendship and devotion to one another (and they can’t seem to quit touching each other in ways that don’t require a stretch to interpret as loving.

          even in bromances, men rarely touch each other gently on the neck or face. or hug, full length, without enough space to slide a ruler through. whatever they have, it is special, and i have to believe that one or the other plays for my team if not both, and given how frequently javi has his hands around yuzu’s waist, it may not be the more obvious candidate. did i mention that johnny weir, a friend, refers to them as papi and pooh? i have now.

          • bandanajack

            i expect a full report back after you have checked this out.

        • bandanajack

          run, do not walk, to tumblr.

          • melanie powers

            *goes to tumblr*

            two minutes later

            *dies*

            WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO ME?!

            WHAT FRESH HELL IS THIS?

            THEY’RE SKATING TOGETHER?? ASDFGHJKLK

            THE SKATING TOWARD EACH OTHER AND HAND HOLDING!!

            YUZU’S SASSY POSE!!

            OMG THAT LIFE!!

            ERMERGEAAAAAAAAARD THOSE HUGS!!!!!!!

          • bandanajack

            if is any consolation, there are some touches, some gestures, some embraces, that slay me, a 74 year old man. (clutches my pearls). if this is a bromance, it is unlike any bromance i have ever seen.

          • bandanajack

            punch yuzuvier into facebook’s search box. you should find a home there. if you message me on facebook, jack smythe, i will approve your admission. you will have to look for my mug for a profile to find the right jack smythe …

          • bandanajack

            btw, did you see the time yuzu was consoling javi, in one of the best consolation hugs ever, and then took off his gold medal and draped it around javi’s neck? of course javi returned it, after another full contact hug, all of this witnessed by a few gape jawed press and coaches who were backstage. and i may be wrong, but i think javi did the same to yuzu a couple years ago.

          • melanie powers

            I do not read RPF but I am shipping this…THIS IS ALL YOUR FAULT!! OTL What do I do with my life now?

            Dunno how this’ll show up on the website, but this was the second comment.

  • Klaus

    How about Amanda start untying the victims? Action speaks louder than words.

  • Ethan

    I WAS SO EXCITED TO SEE THIS PAGE THAT I COULDNT EVEN MAKE A SOUND

    IT WAD JUST SILENT FLAILING THAT PROBABLY LOOKED STRANGE

    THANK YOU

    • bandanajack

      like trump mocking the reporter with cerebral palsy?

      • Ethan

        Not that bad, no.

  • bandanajack

    the line work on these images is exceptional, the figures all but jump off the page…
    nice work @adam de kraker

  • Sorry I missed camp! I was at the hospital with my grandmother. She is okay, just needs to take some more antibiotics….again…6.5 hours in the hospital. -_-

    It was such a lovely moment…Was it Fluke or Tsu-Tsu that interrupted the moment?

    • Klaus

      My guess is Commander.

      • bronakopdin

        the script is saying it is Paul x3

        • Klaus

          Figures. He is the one with a broken arm.

          • bronakopdin

            I am probably just exhausted from the last days but I don’t get the joke x’D
            these things always bother me though, can you please explain for braindead me? ^^

          • Klaus

            There is no joke. Paul’s arm was hurt, possibly broken, during the fight. He could use some healing too.

          • bronakopdin

            well yes there was a joke and it was you implying the healing/kissing connection xD
            I didn’t see the connection when I commented before! I wondered why it was suddenly “obvious” for Paul to interrupt their moment, now it makes sense if I connect it with the healing ^^

          • Klaus
          • bronakopdin

            yes thanks, though that was never something I questioned ^^ I wondered about why it “figured” but I already explained in my other reply x3

    • bronakopdin

      oh dear, hope your granny gets well soon!!

    • Juliette Leroux

      All my positive vibes to your grandma!

  • Kate G

    “Uh, Guys?” DON’T “UH, GUYS?” THEM! IT’S A KODIAK MOMENT! (If any of you get that Robin Williams reference, you get 10 cookies. I know these days it’s obscure. Actually, it’s also a reference to a rather obscure show these days too.) LET THEM HAVE IT!

    By the way, anyone got a Kodak to capture this in film? Maybe a smartphone? Well, that is, if the phones haven’t been incinerated….

    • NoiseShaper

      “Uh, guys…!” unfortunately does sound more like “We’ve overlooked some villainy to be mopped up there!” than just “Okay, let’s get to the boring part of releasing all the people here!”

      • Madock345

        Unless it’s one of the hostages talking

        “Uh, guys… can you untie us please?”

      • Kate G

        I know, but still, they deserve their Kodak moment, you know. Let’s ignore real life for 2.2 seconds.

      • timemonkey

        It could also be the one member of the team with significant injuries.

    • Morgan

      I used to pronounce it Kodiak thanks to that movie. Lol

      • Kate G

        I still say Kodiak over Kodak. LOL

  • bronakopdin

    aren’t they lovely x3
    but then again seeing the hostages still waiting for someone to free them from the gags and bonds ^^’
    They sure got a moment there though! I like how they contently smile at each other x3

  • Juliette Leroux

    So tender with each other, it’s really cute 🙂 But I have to say I share the “Uh, guys” with whoever said it. The hostages are waiting to be saved!

  • TwilightDreamer

    aaaww!! Kyles face in that third panel!! X3 soooo cute!!

  • Nate

    Yes, you are, Kyle. Awesome and adorable.

    As for Fluke (I assume that is Fluke speaking in the last panel):

    Paul, you are a good friend. Don’t interrupt the flirting. 😉

    • Vasyl

      To be fair they still have a bunch of hostages to untie and take care of before proper flirting can occur. Besides it’s possible another super group has shown up (a giant nude fire demon king of hell did try to invade the earth)

      • T Dibbler

        I was just thinking that _of course_ the military/super backup would arrive now, just after the crisis has passed.

    • Chris Dangerfield

      Yeah Kyle is in that moment when he’s mono-focused staring at “his” lips and can’t really see or think about anything else……. so been there.

  • Shiny Gwilly

    i love the “uh” and “um” with kyle’s talking on this page, you can tell he’s still processing what just happened, it’s so cute
    and his eyes!! his expression on this page is so sweet, this page is sweet in general

    and it could be anyone in the crew saying that, but i guess either fluke or tsu
    you guys had your moment, you can have more moments later after this is 100% over!

  • bandanajack

    it was the image i was thinking of, certainly not the intent.

  • Aw. Saved the world but forgot it existed for a moment! 😀 I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about canon Kyle/Spooky but after this I’m all for it! Also, omg, Spooky is /Kyle/ okay?? You were the one who almost died!!

    One more also! In the first panel, does Kyle have a hold of Spooky’s sides? Like grabbing love handles? Because like, that’s just perfect and awesome if so. I always find it sweet when characters do that while sharing a tender moment. If not, don’t disillusion me! :p

    • Chris Dangerfield

      Yep, I find that I’m busy saving the world and then my honey starts giving me the serious kissing and everything flies right out of my brain….

  • Pikinanou

    “you ok?” YOU OK?! Look who’s talking, mister-I-almost-just-died-by-being-consummed-by-hundred-of-souls-trapped-inside-my-body! And don’t get me started on the whole King of Hell who wanted to kill him just because he thought he was an abomination OR those silver-haired baddies who started this whole mess…
    Tch, seriously, what are you youngsters doing to my poor old lady heart? XD

    • T Dibbler

      Well, Kyle DID go through some bad stuff too, resulting in physical injury and potential psychological trauma, so I guess it’s a question that goes both ways. 🙂

  • Emma B.

    I feel like I’ve been screaming since the beginning of this kiss, and I’m still screaming.

    • Emma B.

      Also, the first panel is EVERYTHING. It looks like such a tender moment, where everything else disappears.

  • fujoshifanatic

    This was a very deeply, sweetly satisfying page. That is all. 😀

    • Chris Dangerfield

      That is enough! Nice.

  • Jason Moon

    The hostages(those who are capable of forming complex thoughts) are probably thinking “Well, I’m glad that SOMEONE is enjoying themselves but I’m gonna need therapy after this shit.”

    • Vasyl

      I don’t know, I think they just slept through the worst of it inside of spooky.

      • Klaus

        What they went through before Spooky absorbed them was plenty bad enough.

        • Teresajbroyles

    • Jeff Baker

      Jason, LOL!!!!!

    • Jet Allen

      I’m sure the crowd of hostages has at least one yaoi fangirl or fanboy who’s like, “I got kidnapped, traumatized, electrocuted, had my soul eaten and puked up… TOTALLY worth it.”

      • Jason Moon

        After going through all of that, I have my doubts about anyone being able to even SPELL yaoi. In the vernacular of Buffy, they’re probably not capable of going further than “Light bright, tree pretty.”

  • bronakopdin

    I know that and it was not what I meant, I meant it as, why woould he bring up Paul and his injury now, and the joke was because he implied the kiss/healing ^^

  • Saikkusukka

    Kyle’s dad laid out Kyle’s deepest desires on the table for all to see. For Spooky to react this way must make Kyle feel ten feet tall.
    And of course he would, Spooky has gone through the hell experience himself.

    Also, Ima need a second kiss.

  • Yes!!!! :}

  • Mary Klemzak

    I almost forgot to check today! Im the middle of a nice juicy part too! Woo hoo!

    Except for the hostages thing. And teammates. GDI life. Can’t we just let the happy gay boys be happy and gay?

    Everyone else, take care of the hostages. Let the happy gay boys do their thing. Or is the mood broken?

    • They so both deserve that kind of love and Kyle might fill that hellish hole in Spooky (no pun intended) while Spooky might have some charm that helps contain Kyle powerful climactic outburst! (still no pun oc)

    • timemonkey

      The happy gay boy got to do his thing, the happy bi boy has work to do.

  • CecilDrumond

    Both are so sweet. They must be a couple :-).

  • And who might be that c*ckblocker interrupting them in the last panel?

    • Mary Klemzak

      The Commander? Tsunami? Reminding them of their incomplete mission of freeing the hostages?

      • DAMN YOU HOSTAGES AND HERO-BUSINESS-PRIORITIES

        • Mary Klemzak

          Ikr?

      • timemonkey

        Fluke, who would like his broken arm healed as well?

        • Mary Klemzak

          Yeah. Would be nice. No hurry. Lol

    • Curt Clark

      My guess? Someone found Duncan.

      • Juliette Leroux

        Oh that would be an interrestig scene!

      Gordon, who has the weirdest boner right now.

      Or, alternately…

      IT’S LASER BEAR!

      “Uh, guys… can… can I join…?”

      • Curt Clark

        That’s weirdly sweet.

    • Vaira

      Um, like, a few dozen civilians? 😉

    • That would be Fluke.

  • Jason Moon

    The “trauma” comes from being in Spooky’s stomach, not the kissing. Sorry if I didn’t make that clear.

    • NoiseShaper

      I was referring to the possibility that some of them might have their priorities out of whack in the way some real-life people unfortunately do…

  • Jet Allen

    I adore and envy those two so hard right now. Damn, I wish my life had been that awesome when I was 18. Or any point after.

    • Vaira

      You regret not having a loved one who almost died? And how sad it is that you had zero cultists to kill and no people who almost died?
      I’m rather happy my life wasn’t and isn’t like this 🙂

      • stickfigurefairytales

        I think Jet may have been talking more about finally finding an awesome, funny, sexy romantic interest who’s also an extremely caring and understanding friend, plus a group of friends who have your back when things are at their worst.

        • Vaira

          Oh. Right. That makes more sense 🙂

  • Juliette Leroux

    “So granpa K, tell me about your first kiss with granpa S! Was it in a romantic setting? Did you go to a fancy restaurant?” “Well, if I remember well, there were people tied up everywhere and moaning, and scorched vegetation. It was perfect!”

    • Madock345

      Kyle is going to end up with a sulphur and brimstone fetish at this rate XD

      • Pietro7

        Cologne scented with smoke will perhaps be sufficient. 🙂

  • bronakopdin

    Now I really wonder if that is true, but ofc any fangirl or fanboy shipping them might like to imagine that xD

  • Derkins

    Aaahhh!! I called it so hard! I told y’alls that Spooky wasn’t possessed or messing with Kyle! I told you all! Wheeee! XD *flies away on a cloud of floating hearts*

  • inukaiser

    I want Kyle to be with Duncan,DAdDY/BOY LOVE IS THE BEST

    • NoiseShaper

      Given how traumatizingly abusive Duncan was towards Kyle I see no way to justify that.

    • Curt Clark

      I have to agree with NoiseShaper.

      Nothing against age differences, but I feel Daddy/boy love, like any form of love, only works if the Daddy in question is not abusive or manipulative towards his Boy. Duncan used Kyle in a horrible way, and even if he feels remorseful, he’s got a LONG way to go before he’s even worth a second look from Kyle.

      Spooky, on the other hand, has literally been nothing but supportive and caring of Kyle ever since we first saw him.

  • davefragments

    Kyle and Duncan’s last conversation is in Chapter 4, pages 55 to 63.
    They are in the “archive” link at the top of the page.

  • Nirgal

    I guess this new control means that Kyle is now capable of having sex without burning his bed. And his bed partner.

    That sounds good for Spooky.

  • A point to consider. Kyle can have sex with Spooky since Spooky seems to feed on the energy in the flame. The bedroom would have the “no survivors” look but hey, things can be replaced. Good nooky is forever.

    • Maybe spooky can set up some kind of containment?
      He’s got skills 🙂

      • I surmise that it depends on how expensive it is to replace the furniture.

        • furniture replacement is covered under the “artist doesn’t wanna draw it differently” fund…
          (i dip into that fund a lot with my webcomics… course I draw ninja cat comedy, so I’m allowed a bit more than a more serious comic like this one 🙂 )

        • reminded of this page I drew 7 years ago:

          http://nkvssp.smackjeeves.com/comics/1038132/cleanup-3/

          (if the artist doesn’t want to redraw it, it cleans itself 🙂 )

    • I don’t think it feeding, as much as it’s absorbing heat, like he did before when touching Kyle. because he always feel cold. There’s a difference in getting warm, and being in a room in flames.
      Also, I think Kyle can have sex with anyone now, because he learned to control/focus his fire.

  • nope…nope. you other guys do NOT get to interrupt this sweetness.
    I veto this! 🙂

    (soooooooo cute 🙂 )

  • davefragments

    “Uh guys” might be a Sircea sighting or a Duncan sighting.
    There are still lots of loose ends to the story.
    Maybe the military finally showed up?

    • Nofsky8

      It would be nice if the military finally showed up, annoying that they’re interrupting but still,

    PAGE 1 – Meanwhile… Dewey
    (1.1) Establishing shot of Dewey moving down the street, going to attend his business meeting. He has a thoughtful expression on his fact, is wearing a tie, and using his tail to carry a briefcase.
    (1.2) Wide angle shot of Dewey rounding a corner and suddenly being confronted with a mob of people running in the opposite direction to get away from shamblers. Dewey looks surprised and throws himself up against a wall to avoid being trampled.
    Random person 1: “Run! Run!”
    Random person 2: “EEK!”
    (1.3) Medium shot of Dewey now being confronted by the shamblers. Dewey looks even more surprised, but only briefly.
    Shamber 1: “Rawwrr!”
    (1.4) Medium shot of Dewey spitting a ball of hellfire at one of the shamblers.
    SFX from Dewey: “Fwooomf!”

    PAGE 2 – Fight Scene With Side Order Of Recriminations
    (2.1) Medium shot of the same city street. Dewey continuing to spit fire at shamblers, and is shown leaping about in mid air as a way of visually indicating how energetic his response is. The shamblers seem to have at least some sense of self preservation, because although they are still blank eyed, they are running away from him.
    SFX from Dewey: “Fwooomf! Fwooomf! FWOOOMF!!!”
    (2.2) Medium shot of street with Dewey having chased the shamblers away. Dewey is standing on the back of an unconscious (or dead) shambler, which is lying face down on the footpath. Dewey is glaring about, daring anyone else to try attacking him.
    Dewey: “Hisss!”
    (2.3) Medium shot of Dewey thinking how Shane would react if he killed anyone. Part of this panel is a shot of Dewey’s face wearing a pouty expression, the rest is a thought balloon with an image of Shane waggling his finger in a lecturing manner.

    SFX from Dewey: ” grump ”
    (2.4) Medium shot of Dewey heaving a big sigh and resolving to play nice.
    SFX from Dewey: ” sigh. ”
    (2.5) Medium shot of Dewey turning his head to listen to a sudden shout originating from of-panel.
    Sakura Blossom Bloke: “Summer blossom sleep attack!”

    PAGE 3 – Plot Summary
    (3.1) Panorama shot. Dewey pokes his head around another corner and sees two superheroes standing among some unconscious shamblers. The back of Dewey’s head is on the left side of panel, while the superheroes are in the distance and can be seen as full figures. There is a man (whose hand is crackling with energy of some sort) and a woman.
    (3.2) Wide shot of the two superheroes. There are two caption boxes shaped like hands with pointy fingers to introduce each of them. The woman is Ms Business, and is dressed in a midnight blue business suit with tie, hat, and domino mask that makes her very reminiscent of Eisner’s Spirit. She is checking her mobile phone. The bearded man is Sakura Blossom Bloke, and is dressed is a kilt that shows off his hairy legs but is otherwise an acceptable beefcake image.
    Pointy finger caption box: Ms Business. Detective and olympic level martial arts practitioner.
    Pointy finger caption box: Sakura Blossom Bloke. A magical guy with several powerful flower themed abilities, and had enough any say in his costume to get a kilt rather than the standard sailor fuku.
    Ms Business: “Good going, Blossom Bloke.”
    Sakura Blossom Bloke: “Thanks. Any indication of where these people are coming from?”
    (3.3) Medium shot focusing on Ms Business from waist up. She frowns as she checks her phone.
    Ms Business: “I’m getting numerous reports of people emptying out of office buildings and going on the rampage. Emergency services have confirmed they’re being mind controlled. Unfortunately nobody’s pin-pointed the source yet.”
    (3.4) Medium shot of Dewey remembering what Huey was planning on baking today. Part of this panel

    is a shot of Dewey’s face, the rest is a thought balloon with an image of Dewey holding up a cheesecake recipe to show Dewey and Louie.

    Hi Campers,
    How is everyone tonight? IT’s been a cool, dreary and slightly damp (no rain, just damp) day here.
    The big question tonight is maybe
    – – how to resolve all these open questions the readers still have?
    — Or is there some earthly threat raising it’s ugly head from the mud?

    • Cold and rainy in my part of Denmark. So far the spring has been pretty cold here, except for locally located periods with sunny weather, with average temperature below ‘normal’.

      • davefragments

        My grass loves it rainy and around 50F. Grows fast.
        I just shiver

    • Nofsky8

      Hi! It rained on and off all day down here, and it’s rather chilly, especially considering it’s May. How was your day?

      • davefragments

        Lousy. Can’t call it otherwise.
        But tonight is an update and I’ll rent FANTASTIC BEASTS tomorrow and play it five or six times for fun.

        • Nofsky8

          Yep! Cool, I like that movie too, 🙂

          • davefragments

            I’ve been watching SULLY on HBO and HIDDEN FIGURES on Blu-Ray.
            But today, yesterday I discovered that someone touched something of mine that should never have been touched and damaged it. So I’m still disturbed. I need a distraction/

          • Nofsky8

            Ah, yeah, I know the feeling, (Sully was pretty good too,)

        • Don’t forget to watch the deleted scenes!

    • Saxon_Brenton

      Warm and sunny late autumn here in Sydney, although I expect it will get chilly again tonight. I might go and do some gardening this afternoon, or maybe just take a walk own the river.

      Story wise: someone pointed out that the script says it’s Fluke going “Uh, guys” in the last panel. That makes me think it’s one of two types of interjection. The first is based on his utterly bamboozled reaction on the previous page, in which case it’ll be an incredulous “What do you think you’re doing!?” It would be amusing if Tsunami got the opportunity to tell Fluke to chill out over two guys kissing.

      The other possibility is a warning that there’s something more important that lip mashing that they need to be paying attention to. That could be something as simple as getting the sacrifices untied, or healing the rest of the team (Fluke is the one with the broken arm, and the others will have bad burns). It could be the arrival of the military (or the media; all those explosions will have attracted attention over long distances), or maybe another threat that needs dealing with.

    • Just woke up from a nap. ^_^ It has been off and on storming since last night and I just turned my computer back on. My grandmother was supposed to have a doctors appoitment today, but the doctor was apparently an hour and a half to an hour forty behind and we couldn’t keep waiting because my mother had to go to work. She was re-scheduled for the end of June. -_-

      • stickfigurefairytales

        Oh jeez, that’s awful. I’m sorry.

        • Yeah, mother works the night-shift so she had to wake up early after a night of working to take her to the appointment and then to have it be just a waste of time…

  • Dts91

    Ok so..
    I am a long term reader, never posted before though, on account of the whole social media anxiety thing. But, seeing as its half 3 in the morning and I’m rather drunk right now I thought this would be the best time to join in on the forum fun; lack of inhibitions and all that.

    I just wanted to say that you all have been doing an amazing job with these comics. I am so happy to see that something is finally going Kyle’s way (are least for now) and although it is technically already Saturday here I’m really looking forward to waking up to a new page in the (not quite so early) morning. I suspect a new page will be a great hangover cure. Enjoy the camping 😉 x

    Holy Bajeez.
    Today was crazy busy at work.
    And 5 minutes before we closed a lady decided she wanted to open a checking account… Which takes like 15 minutes.
    So I did that didn’t leave the branch until almost 30 minutes after we closed.
    And then drove an hour and half to come visit my grandma and mom for Mother’s day this weekend.
    But! I am finally home and settled in and ready to camp!!!

    How is everyone doing?

    • Nofsky8

      Tired but good, though I might go to bed instead of staying up for the update, thanks for asking!

      • jreed3842

        Well, if you don’t make it to the new page… I hope you sleep well. 🙂

        • Nofsky8
