The Young Protectors: Engaging The Enemy Chapter 4—Page 33

531 Comments on The Young Protectors: Engaging The Enemy Chapter 4—Page 33

Yes. It’s a bear with freaking laser eyes. You’re welcome.

Kickstarter rewards are almost done shipping to the original backers, but there is still time to join in the big, final shipping push and pre-order a copy of The Young Protectors Volume One and other Kickstarter rewards. At this point, since shipping of all the rewards are happening right now—including the 11″ x 14″ print packs—this isn’t really a “pre-order” situation anymore — your order will be sent out within the month, sometimes within the week! Watch this video for an overview of what you can get and information about saving money with shipping.  It will likely take me a bit of time before these items are available at my regular store site, so if you’re tempted to get a book, trading cards, or anything else, now is the time! 🙂

So! We finally get to see what’s inside Spooky Bottle #1. I wonder what it’s going to do…

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

 

 

 

  • davefragments

    Now that’s a big bear — and it is angry, very angry!

    • And we really don’t want to see it angry.

      • davefragments

        It already is ANGRY!

        • There is that, but you know, I felt it had to be said. 😀

          • Chris Dangerfield

            Such a gooooood moderator. (rolls eyes)

          • stickfigurefairytales

            You be nice to your moderator, Christopher MiddleName Dangerfield, or we will turn this comic around!

          • davefragments

            AJ will spank him

          • stickfigurefairytales

            No, he will be put in Time Out.

          • davefragments

            I just roll up newspapers and smack my little doggies nose when he’s bad.

            😉

          • Chris Dangerfield

            So true… I’m not as tough as I appear.

          • Tyler Griffin

            Don’t threaten him with a good time

          • davefragments

            oooh lala,

          • Chris Dangerfield

            HA!

          • Chris Dangerfield

            Ermmmmm… yes ma’am.

            (but she’s touching me……..)

          • Exactly! XD

        • Chris Dangerfield

          Yayyyyyyy…

      • Chris Dangerfield

        I do!!!

    • Tyler Griffin

      I dunno, Big Bears tend to be more bitter or salty than outright angry, a good roll with a ho young twink aughta chill him out.

      • davefragments

        There are black bears in Western Pennsylvania and everyone is told to walk away without running because those bears are always the enemy of humans.
        Those other bears, well modesty forbid me from saying much about my adventures with them.

        • Chris Dangerfield

          I don’t think a word needs be said. Not from of a hunk of your stature. 😀

          • davefragments

            😉

    • Chris Dangerfield

      So no porridge for Team Silver!

      • davefragments

        hot, too hot for team silver

        • Tyler Griffin

          but *Just RIght* if Kyle is a furry 😛

          • Chris Dangerfield

            I think Kyle is very open to new possibilities… Heeeeee…

          • Tyler Griffin

            I mean, I just assume that demon bears come with hellfire resistant fur as a standard feature

          • Chris Dangerfield

            Ursine convenience…

          • stickfigurefairytales

            It’s only logical.

          • Chris Dangerfield

            I mean Kyle had to get a break… eventually. 🙂

        • stickfigurefairytales

          Hot damn!

          • Chris Dangerfield

            Literally…

  • SPOOKY BOTTLED A GIANT BEAR!!!

    • Chris Dangerfield

      Because he’s dude of all dudes!!!!! I lurve him so.

    • Tyler Griffin

      Freshly Bottled Glacier Bear, none of that Distilled Bear nonsense

      • stickfigurefairytales

        Looks more alpine than glacial to me.

        • Tyler Griffin

          Alpine Glacier

  • And Sircea just shot it in the ass.

    • davefragments

      Didn’t even need to have good aim, either. THat’s one big, hairy target!

      • Ha! It would have taken a miracle to miss it.

        • Chris Dangerfield

          repeat post above… repeat post above…

          • Tyler Griffin

            repeat post above. repeat post above XD

      • Chris Dangerfield

        I’m not going to say it. I’m not going to say it…………

        • Tyler Griffin

          say it! say it!

    • Adam Black

      So, shes a Top?

      • -_-

        • Chris Dangerfield

          oh I know that AJ face…

      • Tyler Griffin

        Yay! Somebody ELSE went there, so I can behave and pretend to be innocent and pure 😀

        • Chris Dangerfield

          *innocent eye roll*

        • Soirbleu

          I LOVE when that happens.

      • Chris Dangerfield

        Well that went without saying… but go ahead. You are so not wrong!

      • bronakopdin

        HA! xD

    • Chris Dangerfield

      Whoooopsie…

  • davefragments

    And it shoots fricken’ laser beams from its eyes!
    YAY spooky!

    • Chris Dangerfield

      Exxxxxxactly!

  • That’s not a small demon. That is one freaking huge, big, bad, demon bear o_o

  • Wonder how Anni is going to handle a SpookyBear(tm) of such epic proportions.

    • Chris Dangerfield

      Fall in love most likely. He’s been looking for the right Top for years now. (snerk)

  • Adam Black

    Whoa!

    teddy-bear.

    • stickfigurefairytales

      It mad tho

      • Chris Dangerfield

        I call him “Cuddles.” He’s really a love once you get to know him. 🙂

  • D. G.

    Wow!!!! Didn’t see that coming!

    • stickfigurefairytales

      Me neither. I definitely was not expecting a giant demon laser bear.

      • Chris Dangerfield

        Yeah, me neither. Flying robot ninja pigs MAYBE… but this???? Wow. Heh.

      • Soirbleu

        Oh, please. Giant demon laser bear? Oldest trick in the book! Everyone saw that coming! 😉

  • Uhm, if that bottle contained something Spooky wasn’t supposed to keep… I may be weary of Fluke throwing that vial too >.>

    Spooky is obviously a DemonBuster, in the GhostBuster way. Getting big bad demony things into small containers. Bottles seems to hold demony things, so maybe the vials are spells or (healing?) potions that does god knows what xD

    • Chris Dangerfield

      I just like that Spooky doesn’t always do what he’s supposed to. Ermmmmmmm…. it’s just that, then I understand his character ever MOAR! LOL.

      • stickfigurefairytales

        If I had the opportunity to keep a giant bear that shot lasers out of its eyes, I would too.

      • Tyler Griffin

        But it’s just a *SMALL* demon bear

        • stickfigurefairytales

          On the scale of demonic bears, that is. Those things’ll usually run at least twice as large.

          • Tyler Griffin

            But wait! What if that *IS* the “small” demon Spooky was refering to????? LMAO. And Amanda guessed!

          • davefragments

            I think that was a dragon

          • stickfigurefairytales

            It could definitely eat a computer, that’s for sure.

          • Tyler Griffin

            It could eat the entire Computer Lab

        • Chris Dangerfield

          So it COULD eat a HUGE computer. Yayyyyyy…

      • I agree, and… there’s that thing about bad boys, and Spooky has been naughty. Really, really naughty <3

  • D. G.

    Guess spooky can put him back after the battle ends.

    • stickfigurefairytales

      I’m impressed by that tiny bottle’s storage capacity. Is the giant laser bear a genie?

      • Or is the bottle Time Lord Tech?

        • Tyler Griffin

          Or was it full of LiquBear, from Concentrate. A part this balanced breakfast

    • Chris Dangerfield

      I hope. Unless he’s a single use bear?

    • Uhh, good question. He’d need a whole bottle, I guess. Not sure any is around.

    • strangeangel24601

      In theory.

  • I wonder if this is good luck or bad luck.

    • Chris Dangerfield

      Oh good good good… I mean, honestly, how could a bear with laser eyes not be good luck. I’ve asked Santa for one every year since I knew better and I still don’t have one. Paul is one lucky puppy! 🙂

      • stickfigurefairytales

        FREE LASER BEAR

        • Tyler Griffin

          YOU get a laser bear, and YOU get a laser bear, and YOU get a laser bear. EVERYBODY gets a lazer bear. And none for Chris Dangerfield (Gretchen Weiners)

          • stickfigurefairytales

            o/

          • Chris Dangerfield

            *sobs quietly in the corner*

          • stickfigurefairytales

            *psst* You can share my laser bear if you want.

          • Chris Dangerfield

            I LOVE YOU FOREVER!

          • stickfigurefairytales

            Laser Bear Pals <3

          • FInally!! I keep telling everyone not to encourage him.

  • Tyler Griffin

    The Bear God is loosed, hide the twinks!

    • bluecario

      That was briliant

    • Chris Dangerfield

      Oh this ^^^ 🙂

  • Tyler Griffin

    I like how everyone, including Duncan are all kind of just fumbling to a shocked stand still. Like it looks as if there’s still half-hearted punches kinda sorta swinging, and people kinda sorta shifting out of the way, but nobodies really committed to it anymore

    • amusingmurff

      *twang* No one expects the Demon Laser Bear!

  • Hmm, wonder if PP’s deathly power blast also made it bigger, except for just madder?

    “Uhm, Mr. Demon Bear, if you crush the dampener, we can help you, because your ..uhh, butt.. is almost on fire. You’re a little hot and smoked back there…


    … What big teeth you have”

    • Tyler Griffin

      DB: RAWR! *Uses Hyper Bean* *It’s super effective*

  • stickfigurefairytales

    GIANT LASER BEAR

    • Chris Dangerfield

      I (along with AJ) will name him “Fluffy” and will love him and hug him and give him snax and we will be best friends forever. 😀

      • stickfigurefairytales

        If he doesn’t go on a rampage and destroy a major metropolitan area. He’s YOUR bear; training him is your responsibility.

        • Chris Dangerfield

          Okay as long as AJ is on pooper-scooper duty… 🙂

          • stickfigurefairytales

            The two of you will have to draw up a schedule and take turns. Also, we’ll have to start looking for a vet that will take multi-story demonic animals.

          • Oh no, this is all Chris’s responsibility. That and Spooky’s. He’s Spooky’s bear

          • stickfigurefairytales

            Spooky, has the bear had all his shots? Or did he just vaporize anyone who tried to give him one?

          • Suhndog

            Hmm.. it seems someone’s going to get the POINT.. [Ouch!]

          • Tyler Griffin

            don’t forget an optometrist appointment. We gotta get that eye discharge seen about.

          • Chris Dangerfield

            A laser eye specialist too… that’s not gonna be cheap. Thank god AJ has a trust fund!

          • Tyler Griffin

            I already did this joke last season

          • Chris Dangerfield

            Exactly… so “last season.”

          • -_-

        • Tyler Griffin

          He’s just acting out. I mean anyone is entitled to be a little out of sorts after being kept in a bottle in Spooky’s clothes… well, the Bottle bit is grounds for complaint at least

          • Chris Dangerfield

            Sort of an “I DREAM OF GENII” bear…

      • Soirbleu

        I hope you’re not his snax. o_O

  • It may not be a big bad wolf, but my first thought after reading the page was a Red Ridinghood respons.

    Big claws,
    Big teeth,
    Big eyes.

    This page is almost asking for a fairytale reference, and it’s a Grimm, grim one 😉

  • Chris Dangerfield

    To Alex’s notes… THANK YOU.

  • Spooky, I think Fluffy could use to be taken for a walk.

    • Been cooped up in that tiny bottle. Good thing demon animals doesn’t seem to have a legal union. Maybe they should talk with the minions about a collective support group for unappreciated, bad treated workers.

      • stickfigurefairytales

        Somebody call PETD! (People for the Ethical Treatment of Demons)

        • PETMAD (People for the Ethical Treatment of Minions and Demons)

          • Tyler Griffin

            or with mad pets 😀

      • Pietro7

        Wait a minute, how do we know that the bottle is small – on the inside? Maybe it’s the size of Yellowstone Park inside and the bear is ticked because his lovely hunting ground just disappeared and somebody rudely stung him from behind?

        • Tyler Griffin

          Time Lord tech theory has already been called, lol

  • Chris Dangerfield

    I’d call that a “lucky” Spooky-bottle… I guess Paul isn’t out yet. Nice.

  • Suhndog

    WUT???

    I just came to this page and .. WUT ?!!!
    I almost thought I had the wrong comic!!!

    That’s one HUGE BRUIN!
    I think we are about to discover whether it’s a BEARABLE or UN-BEARABLE BEAR!!

    Oh, Alex!!! I LOVE the way you you pulled the [bear] rug out from under me with this BEAR!

    I can BEARLY sit still!!!!

    — giggle —

    • stickfigurefairytales

      A+

      • Suhndog

        Heh.. I am a hopeless punster.. I couldn’t resist… (^_^)

    • It was a bear necessity 😉

      • Chris Dangerfield

        I was waiting for that one!

      • Tyler Griffin

        that was horribear

      • Suhndog

        Entering stage left: The Grand Poo-BEAR

        • Tyler Griffin

          high in a hunny tree?

          • Suhndog

            Apparently high on ‘something’ .. I’m guessing nefarious bearious

  • syllibub

    I just…okay. Sure. Bear with laser eyes — we’re doing this.

    What if instead of Laampros, they have to team up and fight this thing? Does the person who released it from the bottle control it, like some kind of mutant genie?

    • stickfigurefairytales

      Or they team up with the bear to fight Laampros. Can you imagine the strategy meetings?

      “Look, I’m just not sure that would be the best tactic-”

      “ROOOOAAAAAARRRRGGGHH!!!”

      “Okay, okay, we’ll do it your way!”

      • syllibub

        Hahahaha! The biggest bear in the room makes the rules!

        • stickfigurefairytales

          He’s tough but fair.

          • Suhndog

            …um I’ll CLAW you tomorrow if it doesn’t work out..
            and stay tuned for Wed’s page: It will be GRIZZLY!

          • Tyler Griffin

            “ha ha, Senpai… Y-You mean CALL… right?”
            DB: Stares at you in silence

          • Suhndog

            — and if that doesn’t do the trick, FANGS a lot.

            This is not a Kodiak bear or moment.. It’s a CARDIAC bear..

          • Suhndog

            — heh, sorry guys.. It’s Friday night, I’m alone with my kitty, and got in a goofy mood.. we all need a laf sometimes, eh? I better stop, or Alex might put me in the script with the Bear.. and I’ll end up peeing, and screaming like a Banshee — or maybe a school girl.. eeks!

        • Tyler Griffin

          So…. me? lol

        • Chris Dangerfield

          I’ve always said that.

    • Chris Dangerfield

      This is where the battle plan may be undergoing some re-thinking…

      • Tyler Griffin

        PP: Alright , *child*, you got anything in that head of yours for *THIS*?
        Amanda: Working on it… Don’t YOU have a counter spell?!
        PP: ….. RIght, so we keep it distracted while you get your *Little Team* together and figure something out.

    • strangeangel24601

      And then as they’re fighting it, Laampros comes through the portal all ready to take over the earth with his hordes of minions, takes one look at what’s going on, and says, “You know what, screw this. This is not what I signed up for. I’m going back to Hell. If anyone calls, just tell them I’m in the tub.”

  • Andy Nguyen

    HAVE YOU SEEN MY BEAR TIBBERS

  • syllibub

    Still, I love panel three with the bear looming up in front and a reaaally tiny Sircea pausing down there like, “…Hmm.”

    • Tyler Griffin

      “Well, now.. THAT’S not what usually happens when I cast that spell… waitaminute… did I say levi-OH-sa or levi-oh-SAH????”

      • syllibub

        Shouldn’t have designated Charms class as her “nap” period…

    • Chris Dangerfield

      Well her cape has already been messed up. I mean, there are limits.

  • Cydney Sabin

    So it’s not a tree. It’s a bear. Still an innuendo. XD

    • Suhndog

      A-Bear-antly, we’re branching out now.. heh

  • A big bear with laser shooting eyes, now that is a beakon that is hard to miss if the military is starting to gather anywhere near, not even needing to be that close.

    • stickfigurefairytales

      “Turn left at the bear.”

      “Which bear?”

      “Oh, believe me, you’ll know it when you see it.”

      • Tyler Griffin

        JINX!

    • Tyler Griffin

      “They said to come to their sign..”
      “What’s the sign?”
      “She said we’d know it when we saw it”
      “I see it”

  • *laughing* “It’s not a bear and Spooky wasn’t supposed to keep it”

    Spooky is in SOOOOO much trouble with Amanda….

    • Chris Dangerfield

      Which makes me love Amanda more, but then again women love “bad boys.” My Spooky.

    • stickfigurefairytales

      Hi Doki! *hugs*

  • Let’s hope Fluffy isn’t Laampros’ long lost pet. The chance of Laampros coming through the gate, spotting Kyle and and go ‘Daddy’s home’ is already big enough :-p

    • Calahara

      I wonder what he would actually do if the gate would open and all hell would break loose. He didn’t go into specifics himself, except for that -what was his name again… didn’t have a clue what Laampros would do.

  • Chris Dangerfield

    I love this page Alex! Baloo is CRANKY!

  • FelixNemis

    wat

  • Wonder if Spooky was Saving Fluffy to deal with Laampros.

    • stickfigurefairytales

      I hope so.

      • It seems like such an ace up the sleeve. Hell King meet Hell Bear. It’s time to RUUUUUMBAAAALLLL

        • stickfigurefairytales

          I know, right? And I bet Laampros, like us, would have never seen it coming.

          • I come expecting tasty mortal souls and they serve me a freaking GIANT BEAR!!

          • Tyler Griffin

            I came out to have a good time, and honestly I am feeling so attacked right now -Laampros, upon arrival on earth.

          • I was told this would be a resort, not a camping trip.

        • Tyler Griffin

          Godzilla, meet Mecha Godzilla!

        • Michael

          Mmm, rumballs.

    • davefragments

      I think Spooky keeps lots of things that Amanda says “no” to. He seems like one of those guys who just does things like that.

      • Chris Dangerfield

        Lucky them!!!!

      • And chosen just so for this outing. I wonder if he dithered much in choosing the bottles for his coat.

        • davefragments

          The other bottle is scary — first snakes, now a giant bear with laser beams and what’s next?

          • stickfigurefairytales

            The other bottle turns out to just be an adorable bunny with no special powers.

          • davefragments

            except razor sharp teeth

          • Jinx!

          • It has teeth!

          • Chris Dangerfield

            The Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog?

          • Smaug

          • davefragments

            Do you remember that elevator scene in CABIN IN THE WOODS? The bloody one? Well, what if all that is in the bottle?

          • I never saw that movie.

          • davefragments

            It’s fun. I love when Bradley Whitford puts the Harbinger on Speaker phone … and all the other “inside horror story” jokes.

          • Calahara

            I feel like they should go with some kind of bird to be honest, feels right to me.

        • stickfigurefairytales

          I wonder what else he has stored away!

          • It’s kinda scary to think about

          • stickfigurefairytales

            Maybe one of them has ice cream!

          • I could get behind that one…. Then again. He has snakes and bears bottled. I shudder to think what flavor ice cream be might keep and what it might do to me.

          • Tyler Griffin

            Neopolitan, but it’s Orange Schubert, toothpaste, a,d ym socks

          • I’m still going with bottles = demon pets, so vials must be potions that can do a lot of things, like go BOOM!

          • Chris Dangerfield

            The bottle that puts you in a really good mood, BUT makes you fat. Wow. That IS a demon bottle.

          • Klaus

            Green mice and telephone maybe. Or bicycle

          • Chris Dangerfield

            When you go to hell at thirteen years old… you make friends. WHAT?

        • Tyler Griffin

          “Hmmmm….. Demon Bear, She-lob last daughter of Ungolaint, The Master, or IT (Wrinkle in Time)… decisions, decisions…”

          • Chris Dangerfield

            Thassss my Spooky…

  • “Spooky Jones! If we live through this, you are in serious trouble mister!”

  • Calahara

    I did think of a bear the previous page, but not this bear. Nope. Not this one. Giant lazer beam eyed bear, I admire the creativity. Feels a bit nuts though, which is amazing and adds to the fun. It does feel like I’ve seen this bear before somehow… weird.

    • stickfigurefairytales

      Have you been dreaming the future again?

      • Calahara

        Must be, or the past. They don’t keep these kind of things in Hell do they?

        • Probably, in at least one hell dimension. We just haven’t met one yet.

          • Calahara

            A lab full of crazy scientists would probably be a good place to start. I love crazy scientists.

  • I think Minion Shane should be more apreciative now. He only got the demon snakes.

    • Chris Dangerfield

      Totes relieved! He’s actually starting to appreciate “Slithers.”

  • Well, I was right. It was Big Foot. 😛

    • stickfigurefairytales

      He seems taller in real life.

      • Those other guys are just his little cousins.

      • Chris Dangerfield

        Objects in the mirror may seem bigger than they appear…

  • So, Amanda knows what it is, and Spooky wasn’t supposed to keep it.

    Either that thing has been fought and caught before, making it through a weak wall, or Spooky conjured it (experimenting?) and was firmly told to send it back where it came from. Could be a mix of first option and second reply 😉

  • timemonkey

    Amanda, you should know better than to expect a teenaged boy to get rid of a giant laser bear.

    • Chris Dangerfield

      Fact!

    I SO did not expect this! Great, Alex!

  • *lol* The comments section have had a small explosion on this page. 200+ comments already. All it took was a laser-shooting bear.

    • Well, laser bear!!

      • Chris Dangerfield

        I don’t understand the surprise. It’s just a typical ordinary giant demon laser-eyed bear. Right? I’ll bet Sircea is rolling her eyes. Just another day at the bone-summoning-ring. Heeeeee…

  • Duncan, no longer the biggest bear around.

    I wonder if this will simultaneously count as good and bad luck for Fluke.

  • Shiny Gwilly

    …………….oh
    WELL THEN
    this is far from what anyone, anyone in and out of comic, was expecting
    i do love that first panel showing just how HUGE that thing is, i can’t wait for the colors to come in so we see this guy in all his laser firing glory
    what other tricks does it know, now i’m curious

  • “And Spooky wasn’t supposed to keep it.”

    Oh, so many things implied by one little sentence. 🙂 I am reminded of “It would be just a very small demon.” Presumably this is a rather larger demon.

  • Is Fluffy stepping on that minion?

    • Chris Dangerfield

      *squish*

    • I think Fluffy is stepping on two minions, and I personally don’t want to see what his under his hind paws. I hope the YPs aren’t squeamish….

      • Now that’s quite the mess.

        • I know we are not supposed to mention one’s weight, but I really cannot see someone surviving being stepped on by a “Not a Bear” that size.

          • Nope, just a big puddle of squish. Although that one minion looks to be half-squished

  • Gregory In Seattle

    I can just imagine the conversation….

    Spooky: “Amanda? He followed me home, can I keep him?”
    Amanda: “No.”
    Spooky: “But he won’t eat much material food….”
    Amanda: “No.”
    Spooky: “How about if I keep him in this little bott….”
    Amanda: “What part of ‘No’ are you not getting?”

    • Toli Bera

      “But it could eat out equipment when we don’t want it anymore.”

      ((Spot that call back.))

  • strangeangel24601

    “Spooky, how many times do I have to tell you? Our lease clearly says no pets allowed!”

    • Chris Dangerfield

      But it’s only a small giant demon bear…

      • strangeangel24601

        And what do you think the landlord is going to do when it leaves a small giant demon mess on the carpet? He won’t be giving us our deposit back, that’s for sure.

        • Chris Dangerfield

          Oh exactly! THIS is why we can’t have nice things. :/

    • Klaus

      This is not a pet, it is a mouser.

  • Fabulous Alien

    Raise your hand if you predicted a ginormour bear with laser eyes!!! Anybody?

    • I predicted Big Foot.

      • Klaus

        Close enough.

    • Michael

      I was thinking his New Years Dragon like in chapter 1. Would have connected the two scenes nicely.

      • Fabulous Alien

        I didn’t remember the dragon, time for a re-read!

        • Klaus

          It was one page, 3½ years ago.

    • Saxon_Brenton

      [shakes head] I predicted ‘big hairy wossname’, which was both too vague and a safe bet from what we were seeing at the time.

  • bronakopdin

    A demon bear!!! With laser eyes!!! and Spooky was not supposed to keep it?! Amanda… you party pooper!!!

    No seriously… what the hell… I hope it won’t go berserk on our heroes, too >_>’
    Especially as Spooky isn’t able to stop it or put it back into a bottle atm ^^’

    That bear sure is the real deal though xD
    Let’s hope it will serve enough distraction to deactivate the dampener!

    • Klaus

      Lierally putting the djinni back in the bottle. And this time, I literally mean literally.

      • bronakopdin

        if the bottle wouldn’t have shattered, Paul could have tried to rub it, maybe it would have worked even ^^

    • Fluffy is the party pooper. Just see how he managed to get everyone to stop what they were doing by simply showing up 😉

      • bronakopdin

        naaaah, he’s just that highly anticipated climax that everyone gasped at because they wanted to see it so badly and waited forever!!!

  • Jen Roberts

    Spooky has a pet laser bear?! 😀

    • Chris Dangerfield

      You know you want one too!

      • Jen Roberts

        Well, YEAH. Who doesn’t? (Besides Amanda, apparently.)

    • Jen! I don’t think I have seen you around in awhile? Though I might have just missed you posting?

      • Jen Roberts

        No, you haven’t. I felt like constantly saying, “Yay, new update! Great page, can’t wait for the next one!” over and over wasn’t contributing much to the conversation. It’s all still TRUE, of course! ^_^ I am still reading & loving TYP!

  • fujoshifanatic

    *blinks* Well, I certainly didn’t see that one coming. This is going to make waiting for the next page rather un-bearable. *slinks away before tomatoes are hurled*

    • Chris Dangerfield

      No worries… we all ‘thought’ it. 😀

  • Wildroses

    The look on Amanda’s face says it all. “Spooky, if we both survive this you and I are going to have words…”

  • Chris Dangerfield

    Big Giant Demon Bear with Laser Eyes Named Cuddles… What can I say? I’m in love…

    First, may ask how many times do I have to compliment the truly immaginative panel layout… well (sorry, not sorry) at least once more. This is awesome.

    Panel #1: OMG. I get size (bigger looking than the bone ring), the people look like lilliputions which is just a great statement on Duncan and Death-Ray Sircea and her minions. At least for this minute we get a bigger bad. Those red-eyes and the smoke still emanating from it’s back either from manifesting or from Sircea’s blast. I love the comparisons in this panel. Example: In the last one Duncan was a frightening freight train (he’s still a force to be reckoned with) but here he is SO not the focus of anyone’s worries.

    Panel #2: Kyle’s shocked (totally adorbs) face is hysterical and that line, “That is a BIG Bear” are so damn funny. He’s both impressed, shocked and just sorta blown away. I’ll be rude and say that if (as a gay man) you go on a date unknowingly with a man with a truly BIG weener… and you (lets say) are confronted with it at some point in the evening… (?) Well, one’s response is often unintentionally the same as Kyle’s. Kinda like wtf am I going to do with that? (Sorry for the crudity).

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE Amanda’s matter of fact response. Cleeeeeaaaarly she and Spooky discussed this and he told her he returned this item to Hell and got a refund… and now she’s confronted with the fact that followed his own path and, even while it ‘may’ be helpful… this is NOT what they discussed. She is so damn cool. I just love her more by the page. I expect she rolls her eyes next. Oi, Spooky…

    The expression on that minion… ‘nuf said. Perf.

    Panel #3: UHHHHH OH! I get the feeling Grumples spots… either Sircea as the person who just blasted his big furry butt with a laser beam or just the bone ring… and IS NOT PLEASED? It could be something else, but he’s not happy about something (snort).

    Panel #4: YOWZA… those laser eyes. Nothing makes a bear special like laser eyes. If you have to have a cool demon in a bottle. I think this is the one to have! Spooky is THE MAN and being naughty and keeping a Demon Bear with Laser Eyes in a bottle in your cool trench coat is so perfectly him.

    Lucky lucky Paul… I think. Heeeeeee…

    Thank you so much Alex, Adam and Vero for a week making page. This is so awesome that I can HEAR the sountrack. From earthshaking growls to the sound of those laser beams. So very very cool… and FUN.

    • Klaus

      How do you know the eyes are named Cuddles?

      • Chris Dangerfield

        (snort)

    • Cuddles? Didn’t we name him Fluffy?

      We have to be on agreement here. Two names are just going to confuse him 😉

    • davefragments

      Fluffy, I like the Bear as a Fluffy more than Cuddles.

      • Chris Dangerfield

        HA! What do you call a big giant demon bear with laser eyes? …………

        WHATEVER HE WANTS YOU TO. 😀

    • You’re very welcome, Chris. Loved reading your play-by-play. Adam, Vero and I put a lot of work into this page, and your thorough (and thoroughly fun) reaction is much appreciated. 🙂

  • Raz

    Didn’t see that coming!

  • Klaus

    I fully agree with the minion in panel two.

  • Saxon_Brenton

    Uhm, panel 1. Is that giant demon laser bear treading on minions with both its paws? The feet on left side of panel has only a fluttering piece of robe showing and splash of blue water. The one on the right has half a minion still showing, but a distinctive flash of yellow as crushed hellsnake is violently discorporated.

    • Klaus

      I think the snakes are a bit further away from the path lined with standing stones. The nearest would be just off panel. Below the bottom of panel one.

      • Saxon_Brenton

        I certainly hope you’re right. I worry for Shane and his friends. That said, going back to page 31 panel 1 shows much the same scene from a slightly higher vantage: http://webcomics.yaoi911.com/typ/ete-ch4-page-31/

        The three minions close to each other on page 31 are probably the ones who just got ensnared with snakes, and as you say would be just off-panel on page 33, in front of Tsunami and below the bottom of panel as the readers view the panel. Therefore, assuming Shane is the lone minion wrapped in snakes lying between Fluke and Tsunami on p.31, our view of him is probably being obscured on p.33 by the bodies of Tsunami and the minions that Tsunami is fighting. That leaves the two minions who were closing in of Fluke from immediate left and right on p.31 to be the ones who have been stepped on by the bear on p.33. But I still worry greatly about the significance (if any) of that yellow flash under the bears foot.

        • You weren’t the only one wondering. When I noticed it (on b/w page), I had to go back to page 31 and reasaure myself that it probably wasn’t Shane under there.

          Poor Minion Shane spends pages wrapped in snakes, and he gets fans who care if he gets stepped on. Screw the rest of the minions *lol*

          • Saxon_Brenton

            Yeah, about that… This morning as I was still half asleep I had the realisation that I should be worrying about *whomever* it was getting squished, not just some hellsnakes. Now that I’m fully awake I think that my subconscious was prompting me to resist the standard Hollywood narrative of treating background characters as disposable canon fodder rather than being people. This was pretty deep, and makes me wonder if I might not be such a cynical and self-centred person after all. (Thank you, subconscious. I appreciate all the uphill hard work you do.)

  • Aitsuki

    Woah.. that’s a VERY big bear…. and it does not seem happy to have been cooped up in that tiny bottle only to be freed and magic-beamed in the ass….

  • T Dibbler

    XD BAHAHAHA!! Now THAT was unexpected. XDD

    And I just love Commander’s response there.

  • Cman65

    Its Big Ted a very big ted,,,,,,,,,,for people not in Australia Big Ted, Little Ted Jemima Humpty and others are from Play School on the ABC for the last 50 years.

    • Saxon_Brenton

      At the risk of mixing up my Australian children’s television shows, I don’t think that the Bananas In Pajamas will be able to chase away this bear.

      • Cman65

        Just be glad it was not the Big Banana

  • Cecilie Muldkjær Bredesen

    A bear with laser beam eyes?! AWESOME! Tell Dr. Evil that those sharks he’s been waiting for are next!

  • TwilightDreamer

    ……..
    *claps quietly*……well done…..I think that’s the last thing I was expecting to see….
    XD haha! Love it! giant lazer beam bear!! And awesome that even at such a dire moment, Amanda still finds time to scold Spookys actions ;P

  • Toli Bera

    …just picked themselves a big basket of oopsie-daisies.

    • Chris Dangerfield

      Oh yes, I mean, does a bear sh*t in the demonic summoning circle? I’d say, “quite possibly.”

  • Amanda to Spooky *low but not happy tone*

    “You weren’t supposed to keep it! We’re having a SERIOUS talk about this later, but right now.. can you possibly heal FASTER?! We need you “.

  • karmakat

    Sincerely…i don’t think it’s the best time to go pointing out faults Missy. maybe even say thank you on that one.
    After all at the beginning already NO ONE followed the plan that had been laid out, and damn if it wasn’t a VERY RISKY ONE ALREADY. Then now miss idiot platinum blonde didn’t do shit either, and even less proved she could actually think.
    Not only she didn’t free one of her minions but she also COULDN’T BE BOTHERED to tell them to pick up the bottles containing MAGIC POTIONS AND SPELLS laying there.
    I rarely saw a villain THAT dumb i swear. Between her and Mr being a naive push over…we got WINNERS IN THE DUMB VILLAIN CATEGORY.
    DING DING DING.

  • Chris Roller

    This reminds me of the following conversation:

    Spike: “A bear! You made a bear!”
    Buffy: “I didn’t mean to!!”
    Spike: “Well, undo it!”

  • Pikinanou

    It’s Cyclop-bear!

    • davefragments

      Scott Summers is jealous.

      • Is Scott Summers ever not jealous?

        • davefragments

          Does Snoopy Dance!

  • David Welbourn

    Interesting how Amanda recognizes the “bear” but Kyle doesn’t. There must be a story behind it. I suppose it’s really a demon? Summoning demons seems to one of those things that Spooky does.

    And even if it isn’t really a bear, shape informs function. It’s probably gonna act like any other ginormous bear with laser eyes while it has that shape. And I have no idea what the heroes or villains are gonna do with it. The bottle it came out of is broken, so it’s not going back in there.

    • D. G.

      Maybe spooky can use magic to repair the bottle.

      • Derkins

        or maybe he has spare empty bottles for such occasions as acquiring new pet bears?

    • Amanda and Spooky have known each other for 6 years, well before the team started. I think they have quite and interesting pre-YP story, since Spooky also hunts demons before/next to his YP work.

      It’s a story I’d love to know much more about (the Patreon mini prose-stories only made that desire worse).

  • Kit the Coyote

    LET THE BEAR PUNS BEGIN!

    “It’s not a bear. And Spooky wasn’t supposed to keep it.”

    I guess Spooky likes to keep the bare necessities in his coat. Just in case.

    • Begin..they have been going since the page was up 😉

      • Kit the Coyote

        Yea that’s me, day late and a dollar short. Sadly my hours don’t make camping practical *sighs*

        • Not that late. Page has only been up in half a day.

        • Chris Dangerfield

          No worries. Now, be honest. Your coyote has laser eyes too, right?

          • Kit the Coyote

            Oh no, lasers is a Human magic. I do have a tribe of flying pixies with flaming arrows though.

          • Chris Dangerfield

            Excellent. Much easier to store them also. I don’t think you’d need nearly as big a bottle for them. 🙂

    • Toli Bera

      They’d better deal with it quick or it could lead to quite the Grizzly fate.

  • Kit the Coyote

    Poor minions, you get up, iron your robes, eat breakfast and head out looking forward to a productive day of serving your mistress, blood sacrifices and a successful demonic overthrow of the world and then this crap happens. Giant bears with laser eyes is probably not covered in health plan either.

  • KatKaleen

    WHUT?! Okay, I’m hungover from yesterday’s party, but somebody please tell me I’m not hallucinating this.

    • Chris Dangerfield

      … hallucinating what …. ?

      • KatKaleen

        The bear that’s not a bear. With lazer eyes. I think this comic just broke my brain… and I like it!

        • Chris Dangerfield

          Oh thank goodness… I’m not alone with the broken brain thing. 😀

    • If you only see a bear, you’re hallucinating, because that is not a bear.

      (It’s totally a bear)

  • Malusz

    Still. Looks a lot like a bear. Just what I always wanted. My own little demon bear. I will name him George, and I will hug him and pet him and squeeze him…

    • But we already have a George 😉

      (It’s what we named the Giant Floading Eye in hell. George Finnigan Edwards – using the GFE initials)

      • Is Humphrey an option?

        • Yup, we haven’t named anyone that yet, but demon bear here is Fluffy (or Cuddles, not 100% determined yet but Fluffy seems most used).

          • Suhndog

            How about Beary [Barry]

          • Klaus

            Hairy Barry.

          • FUZZY WUZZY!

          • Syrenia

            But he doesn’t have “no hair”

          • …Fuzzy Wuzzy wasn’t fuzzy was he?

          • Chris Dangerfield

            I don’t think this is a “care bear.”

          • Well his “Care Bear Stare” definitely isn’t coming from a design on his stomach that has some relation to his name….

          • Saxon_Brenton

            [rolls eyes] Technically Admiral Jane got in with naming rights a few hours before the page went up. It occurred to me that we’d inevitably want to name it (and I was correct), and after I asked she was the one who suggested Horatio.

            [folds arms and contrives to look unconcerned] But if the rest you want to go with whats used most often, then I’m sure Fluffy or Cuddles will do as a perfectly acceptable nickname.

            😛

          • I also called him Fluffy. 😀

            Because upon first sight of him, I thought he looked more like a Fluffy that a Horatio. 😛

          • Derkins

            I’m partial to Cuddles. It’s ironical.

    • Klaus

      How are you going to do that?

  • Kit the Coyote

    “It’s not a bear. And Spooky wasn’t supposed to keep it.”

    Now I’m curious as the backstory of this comment. hehe.

    “Can I keep him PLEASE!!! I can keep him in a bottle, he won’t be a bother.”

    “NO!”

    • Keneu

      “I’ll feed him and pet him and walk him at the park every day!”

      • bobbyjoeguy

        …and name him George!

        • Chris Dangerfield

          Whatever he wants…?

          • strangeangel24601

            Curse you, you beat me to it!

        • davefragments

          George is the giant floating eyeball in Laampros’s dimension.

        • Keneu

          Now that’s a good question. I guess millennial priestesses might be too hard to chew, but Duncan still has some tender spots. Maybe the demons are so aggresive because they haven’t had anything to eat while in the bottles…

  • Jose O. Gonzalez Lopez

    Uhhhhhhhh. I leave for a few weeks and then there is a giant demon bear that shoots lasers from its eyes. And then people as me why I drink. This is not the kind of bear i signed up for. I signed up for the immortal silver bear in love with the guy on fire.

    • And I say, why choose?

      • Chris Dangerfield

        Ahahahahahahaha…

      • strangeangel24601

        Wait, so Kyle is gonna fall in love with the giant demon bear and Duncan will learn to shoot lasers from his eyes? I’m okay with this.

        • somebody

          That’s just too good hahahaha

  • Jason Wexler

    Why hasn’t Sircea already attacked? I would think given her age and line of work this wouldn’t be a shocking or frightening development.

    • davefragments

      Sircea’s first blast hit the bear in the ass on page 32.
      The bear didn’t like that.

      • Jason Wexler

        I suppose that makes more sense then what I thought I saw in that page… Sircea shooting warning shots, saying look at me I am scary run away. I thought her blast hit a tree.

        • davefragments

          Sircea wanted to kill all the Young Protectors, especially Amanda, but Duncan talked her out of it. Two pages ago, she says something like “now you give me no choice” and fires that blast out of her forked staff in anger and hate… and when it hits, something big, hairy and black, blocks the blast.

          And at first I didn’t think it was a big bear but I I knew it was something living and large — some hell beast that Spooky captured. After Amanda’s remark on this page, I have the feeling that Spooky has his own little “pet” store of funky creatures. And the thought that he has his own personal demon-thing hiding inside him is much easier to believe.

          (edited, damnit, edited.)

  • davefragments

    Even this morning I’m still getting the giggles over “And Spooky Wasn’t supposed to keep it.”
    There is just so much I want to know about that little bit of disobedience.

    • P.T. Wyant

      Me too!

    • 🙂

    • Chris Dangerfield

      Oh you! You just think dominant women are sexy. 😀

      • davefragments

        Whatever gave you the idea that I’ve ever had sex with a woman? And don’t even entertain the thought that any part of me is virginal. HA!

        • Chris Dangerfield

          I would NEVER suggest you had (whispers) ‘sex’ with a lady-person, but dominant Amanda can still be sexy. Hmmm… maybe I’m projecting here. Don’t worry, I would never out you as a heterosexual. That’s just wrong. 😀

          Now me? I’ve been a virgin so many times I’ve totally lost count.

  • Walter Engler

    Boy is that Luck factor in overdrive. What are the odds he would have picked up the bottle containing a demon bear, and tossed it so it misses one villan but opens just in time so it not only blocks Sircea’s attack, but results in angering the demon bear who now turns it’s wrath on her. I think even the improbability drive would have trouble with this one.

    • Derkins

      The villains definitely didn’t realize what they were doing by temporarily winning the fight with Fluke. Big mistake apparently :p

  • purplefoxglove

    Well, I think I already pledged my undying love to Alex, but I also think it’s time to do it again.
    Alex. I love you. Thank you for making my mind go completely blank, followed by minutes of manical laughter. Again.

    My marriage proposal to Spooky also still stands, although I will now never open any bottle he hands me, even if he claims it’s just something harmless like perfume.

    Danielle Moonstar of the New Mutants was trapped in there? (Yes, I am OLD)

      I am also that old, and that was one of my thoughts as well.

    • David Welbourn

      Goodness, I remember that. And yes, that was some time ago.

  • KatKaleen

    After I got my brain cells back together, I have to say: Oh Sircea, you’re in for a whole world of pain. You singed the bear’s butt, he ain’t gonna be happy. Okay, yes, it’s not a bear. Except it is. Looks like a bear, roars like a bear, probably smells like a bear. With lazer eyes. Wait…

  • somebody

    I try to imagine the situation…. you, sitting on a table with a cup of coffee thinking “how the hell could this comic get even more…. COOL we have lots of super cool characters here… an amazing storyline…. but now, we need something really… really cool.” and then, after some more coffee and maybe one or two beer “you know what’s like really cool? – Godzilla! But damn, Godzilla has copyright… but defenitly something with laser” and then you looked at the teddybear who was sitting at the couch and thought “Bear…. huge… fucking bear with laser eyes, that’s something badass… that’s like… really really COOL” and you were right.
    I mean that’s a fucking huge bear with laser eyes!!!!! How could you possibly top something like this???

    • KatKaleen

      It’s not a bear (it’s totally a bear) 🙂

    • Chris Dangerfield

      Now I KNOW that Alex is not the drug taking type…

      Howwwwwever, can’t you just imagine an evening, possibly after a good meal and some snogging with his BF, and they’ve been smoking something and are three sheets to the wind with a bad case of the giggles.

      So, the BF suggest AW needs something unexpected for this page and they run through the options and when they get to the GIANT DEMON BEAR WITH THE LASER EYES, they start laughing so hard they can’t stop and have to go out for serious munchy food and donuts, and thus the GIANT DEMON BEAR WITH THE LASER EYES… becomes canon.

      Now, I know this didn’t happen. But it’s pretty funny to think about. 😀

      • The moment when readers write fan fiction about you.

          In Soviet Russia, etc. etc…

  • Mir

    It’s a bear that has lazer eyes, of course Spooky wouldn’t listen to the commander and keep it anyway LOL. Honestly if we had to guess what would’ve have happened in the next page wednesday I doubt any of us would’ve guessed demon bear.

    What if it turns out Spooky and the Bear are actually like really good friends and Spooky named him like Richard or something. And the Bear sees him passed out and gets even more angry 😮

    • TheManBehindTheCurtain

      Probably named him Pooh since Spooky got transported to the demon realm when her was pretty young. He would probably have read the Winnie the Pooh bear books.

      • Tyler Griffin

        I like a bear named Dick, myself.

    • Derkins

      In match up of Spooky vs. Richard (LFG), who would get to keep the bear? One has a bag of tricks, the other has them up his sleeve. Richard wouldn’t give him up easy.

  • Melody Pena

    I have no idea what is going on!

    • Klaus

      Confused? You won’t be after the next episode

      • Melody Pena

        OH …ok ! I think I got it now. The laser -bear came from the bottle Fluke threw, and got in the way of the zap from Sircea, saving the person she was aiming at.
        Makes total sense now.

        • Pretty much yes. Last panel on previous page is a mix of PP’s beam hitting the bear that popped up magically from the broken bottle. On this page the bear’s behind is smoking from where beam hit.

        • You got it 🙂

    • The demon bear was in the bottle that Fluke threw after Anni, and it appeared just in time to be hit in the ass by the blast PP sent after Amanda. Bear is nooot happy about that.

      (Not sure you meant this page, or what is to come in general, so replied about page)

      • He was carrying an ice cold bottle of bear.

    • Chris Dangerfield

      I’m with you… Sircea and the demon bear blasting every which way willy nilly. I’ve decided that it’s so fun that ‘comprehension’ is totally over-rated on these pages. Let’s just sit back and see who gets blasted next!

      Yayyyyyyy!

  • Jac

    THIS IS AMAZING AHAHAHA

  • Sterling Ericsson

    Or…or it was a laser bear. Sorry for thinking it was a tree. >_>;

    • TheManBehindTheCurtain

      Well it’s not entirely original. Remember “Sharks with lazers” from the Austin Powers movie??? 😉

    • Klaus

      No need to be sorry.

  • himeko7

    Of course it’s not a bear. It’s obviously a pomeranian. :b

  • Abyssdoor

    I thought april 1st was a little over a month ago? XD

  • Snorlaxation

    Well I was WAAAY off.

  • At some point Amanda (and/or possibly the government of they get to know) is going to have a talk with Spooky about this. She’s going to want to know what else he kept, and wasn’t supposed to.

    Snakes and now a bear. Spooky secretly has animals zoo, doesn’t he?

    • Chris Dangerfield

      The government vs. Spooky. HA. I know who my money is on.

      • Yup! Same for me.

        Spooky and Amanda though. That could be a tie. If Spooky tried the ‘just a small demon bear’ line, she might smack him *lol*
        Let’s hope Fluffy behaves in advantage to the team. It may help Spooky’s defence a little.

  • I just had a thought about the bottles. Spooky is missing out on a million-dollar business here. I’d say billion, but it’s probably nearly impossible to expand the business unless he teams up with PP (yeah, fat chance of that).

    Tardis-bottles! So much bigger on the inside.

    Commercial:
    Are you moving, and wish you could do it easier? Do you want to bring all your pets with you on a vacation*? We got the new solotion for you. The Spooky Jones’ Tardis Bottle!

      • I’ll be interested to see if he can take the Triple Crown

        • davefragments

          I will too.

          • Horses aren’t bred the way they once were. Of course you can breed the ability, but you can’t breed the heart and desire to win, the absolute love of running.

          • davefragments

            Breeding and training a 3 year old stallion is not an easy task.

            BTW – I rented STAR WARS THE FORCE REAWAKENS and it’s better the second time around. However, I still dob’t like Star Wars after Jar Jar. I wasn’t a big fan before Jar Jar but after, I simply stayed away. It’s enjoyable.

          • This is true. Training horses is difficult, especially when a lot of young athletes are such assholes. But getting them started right is a huge must. So many end up getting broken down because they don’t have that foundation.

            TFA: Yup, it plays well the second and third and fourth time. Especially when you get to pick up on the various emotions being portrayed, the little quips. It was much more like A New Hope, which was nice. I’m looking forward to seeing where ep. 8 goes.

          • davefragments

            “Awakens” is the same as the first movie. I read through IMDB’s trivia and the number of inside jokes is amazing.
            I hope 8 doesn’t have Ewoks. I still have nightmares over them.
            I have no bad dreams about Jar Jar, just eternal damnation and hatred of a kind I have to got to confession when I speak of him out loud.

            As for horse racing, it’s a sport for the very rich. I’m not a horse person. My Brother is the horse person. I think they are big, smelly beasts — although I’ve know a few that were truly spectacular and quite amazing.

  • Keneu

    Now I can imagine how much fun Alex must have had while writing the script and again anticipating people’s reactions. The story hasn’t focused much on the human sacrifices for now but some of them may be thinking “WTF is happening right now??”

    There’s only one bottle left. What could it contain? Where the snakes reacting to the laser-eyed bear or to the demon on the other bottle?

  • Chris Dangerfield

    Happy giant demon laser-eyed bear’s mother’s day (ooopsie).

    • Klaus

      It is a mother and a bear, according to Kate G’s explanation above.

      • Chris Dangerfield

        Yeah. I have one of those. That’s why I’m grateful my mom didn’t squish me when I was 13… mostly mother… occasionally furious bear. Total mother of the best sort. I’m grateful NOW, but I did poke the bear way more often than I should have. Lucky me. 😀

  • Pornan

    I feel this was somehow put in so either Duncan or Sircea can exit chased by bear.

    • Chris Dangerfield

      Fair enough. If I were a super powered instantly healing male villain or a super powered 6,000 year old sorceress lady-person… I wouldn’t want to exit for anything less than “Cuddles.” 😀

  • amusingmurff

    THE MINIONS. Exit, pursued by a giant, laser-eyed bear.

    • Chris Dangerfield

      indeed… stage left…

  • Pinkfeiry

    oh boy

    • Chris Dangerfield

      oh bear!

      • Tyler Griffin

        pooh bear!

        • Derkins

          oh, pooh!

          • Klaus

            Oh oh.

  • Paul Andrade

    Tell us the truth: you just wanted to draw a bear with laser-eyes, didn’t you?

  • Heh, I just had a horrible idea. Cory’s fugue tornado + Fluffy/Cuddles….

    Giant “Not a Bear” with laser eyes in a tornado….please don’t let anyone from SyFy see this….

    • Tyler Griffin

      Lazer Bear Tornado? We gotta try that out, someone call Mythbusters

  • Kate G

    OMG, IT’S A BEAR! RUN, EVERYONE, RUN!

    Come to think of it, now that you made it a bear and you said it’s not a bear, this brings up mythology. All of Spooky’s bottles contain some sort of creature based upon ancient mythology. The golden dragons that Spooky released to hold the minions remind me of P’an-lung (coiled dragons.) They have no wings and are more water-based. That’s about all I know on these dragons; I’m not really versed on eastern dragons.

    The “not-a-bear” reminds me of the Greek myth of the nymph Callisto. She was a handmaiden of Artemis (therefore, she vowed to be chaste), and Zeus seduced her. She bore a son named Arcas. Depending on the story, Zeus (trying to hide his infidelity), Hera (out of jealousy) or Artemis (for breaking her vow) turn her into a bear. Hera wasn’t appeased so she tried to get Artemis to slay Callisto; Zeus put Callisto in the sky as Ursa Major. Hermes saved her son Arcas and he joined Callisto as Ursa Minor. Arcas actually had a life of his own, but Callisto is one of those sad, sad stories. 🙁

    I give one soda that “not a bear” is Callisto. A very, very, very pissed with laser vision Callisto.

    • Tyler Griffin

      But.. but.. it’s NOT a bear! (it’s totally a bear)

      • Kate G

        Did I say it was a bear? Noooooooo. I said not a bear was a nymph turned INTO a bear. MWA HA HA. Therefore…not a bear. 😀

  • Kate G

    I mean the bear necessities
    Old mother nature’s recipes
    That bring the bear necessities of life

  • Justin White

    okey now i’m wondering what this thing is and boy is it cool. spook i don’t blame you

    • Derkins

      reminds me of Richard from Looking for Group. Like, Spooky saw him and just HAD to have him. “Whose a good giant lazer-eyed not-a-bear? you are!”

      • Justin White

        lol indeed

  • Wait…what the fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu?

    did Sircea do that? or did the vial do that?
    and again, whaaaaaaaaaa?

    • The bear came from the bottle Fluke threw. 🙂

    • Tyler Griffin

      but the smoke coming from the bear’s butt *IS* Sircea’s doing

      • Sircea hits it instead of her target, it came from the bottle

    • Tyler Griffin

      but the smoke coming from the bear’s butt *IS* Sircea’s doing

  • Did Sircae’s power blast get that not-a-Bear in the butt? That’s one pissed off not-a-Bear.

  • Derkins

    oh my god! all i can manage is some maniacal giggling at this page. what the what?! NO ONE saw this coming! and commander’s reaction is priceless. XD

  • Derkins

    Just noticed the giant not-a-bear is standing on a minion. excellent.

    • Saxon_Brenton

      Actually, if you look closely he’s standing on two minions, one under each foot. It’s just that all you can see of the one on the left side of panel is the fluttering robe. But, yeah. “Grrr! Minions go squish now!”

      • I’m wondering if either had snakes on them.

        • Klaus

          I think the snakes are further away from the path. The closest would be just under the frame of the panel,

      • Derkins

        edited my comment 😉

        I had forgotten about having heard about that book on “bear luv.” I Can’t say how I felt about the excerpt on Amazon. Strange, is a word.

    • Chris Dangerfield

      Eh?

  • davefragments

    I wonder if Duncan is going to take on the bear? Or alternately, I wonder if Sircea has more oomph left in her magic staff?

  • Justin Bravo Bell

    If I’m right, Spooky didn’t have it. Fluke did.

    • The bear came from the bottle Fluke threw at Anni on previous pqge. A bottle that was dropped from Spooky’s coat earlier in the fight, when he got hit (back in chapter 3), so it was Spooky’s. It’s the bear that showed up in the split second to get hit by PP’s beam.

      • Justin Bravo Bell

        I like spooky. I’m giving him benefit of the doubt.

            No, Rey doesn’t bother me. She’s rather good.
            What tired me out was all the inside jokes and old movie references that never seemed to stop.

          • I didn’t think she would, but looking about the internet there were plenty that did. -_-

            It was basically the first movie flash forward.

          • davefragments

            I can give a good critique of a movie but criticizing Rey for being a girl is childish. There’s a lot of childish on the internet movie boards.

          • Indeed!!

          • davefragments

            I just remembered (so don’t expect anything good from this review) that HBO or STARZ had THE FANTASTIC FOUR (2015) and I watched it.
            It really, truly sucked. It was pathetically awful, Made the two previous movies on the Fantastic Four look absolutely Shakespearean. Just abysmal.

          • There was really some suckiness to that movie

          • davefragments

            It was awful. The actors had nothing in dialog or character development or even depth. Just cardboard figures, and that ending was like 5 minutes and done.

          • There was so much potential wasted on that movie. Plus a lot of the casting was off

          • davefragments

            Now it’s tied. Damnit I should never watch these games.

      How is it going.

      • Woke up confused ro why my alarm clock was going, and why it was so damn humid in my room? Took me about a minute to realize that I hadn’t just dreamt that it rang, and that it was camp time. As for humidity, it’s a sudden warm morning + there might be rain showers today so air is horrible. Window open now.
        That’s about how far my brain goes at this time of day, until I’ve been awake at little longer and/or get hit by hunting adrenaline 😉

        • davefragments

          I set my phone as the alarm clock and I’ve figure out ho to stop it in my sleep.
