The Young Protectors: Engaging The Enemy Chapter 4—Page 50

198 Comments on The Young Protectors: Engaging The Enemy Chapter 4—Page 50

Puny goddess.

So! Looks like The Platinum Priestess planned herself a little tropical vacation! And Kyle knew just how to wish her Bon Voyage! Is that it for the Wicked Witch of White? Has our team finally won the day?

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

 

  • syllibub

    I guess Kyle’s had more than enough monologuing. Anyway, I’m just going to be optimistic about this and assume she doesn’t land unconscious in the ocean and drown. Or unconscious on a rock and splatter. Yeah.

    Don’t you make me a widow, Alex Woolfson.

    • stickfigurefairytales

      She still looks conscious to me in that last panel. Also very pissed off.

      • syllibub

        Right, open eyes. Sometimes the Patreon script varies a bit from the finished dialogue and paneling.

    • I believe I would give the same answer about PP as I gave for Maven in my notes on the last page of Artifice. 😉

      • syllibub

        Oh god. *slumps in relief* I love you.

  • I’m waiting. You’ll what?

  • She does know how to swim right?

    • David Welbourn

      She’s 6000 years old. I assume not only can she swim, she can also cook, clean, type, play piano, and speak half a dozen languages. She owns five yachts and captains them herself. On alternate Thursdays, she dabbles in race car driving and auto repair. During the summer, she often enjoys kidnapping tour guides in historic cities and taking their place just so she can lead tourists in her own bizarre tours for the fun of it.

      • davefragments

        I like that.

      • True, but she could also have a fear of bodies of water or an extreme dislike for them.

      • Skudplastr

        OOH-OOH can this be the real PP please? 🙂

  • Kate G

    Ouch. Burned boobies. That had to hurt.

    • Skudplastr

      I know right!? Also, does PP’s scanty armor get hot enough to cause burns? “Heat Metal” can ruin lives. And modeling careers.

      • Kate G

        I don’t know; but I imagine since she has burns on her skin; the metal is probably hot too. I mean, ow. I’ve burned my boob on a curling iron; it’s not fun.

      • davefragments

        “It’s a one way ticket to midnight (call it heavy metal)”

  • stickfigurefairytales

    That cape is definitely beyond salvaging at this point.

    • Kate G

      I think her boobs are turning into rotisserie chicken breasts as we speak. Another reason not to wear just metal as your main apparel.

  • davefragments

    He who fights and runs away, lives to fight another day…
    Or so the villains all say.

    What has she left behind?

    • syllibub

      The key, an exploded cohort, dignity…it’s a respectable list.

      • davefragments

        I doubt that she had much dignity left to lose…
        I always thought she’d find a way to leave Duncan to face Laampros, now I think I know how that’s going to happen.

        • syllibub

          She had towering dignity! This is quite a fall, literal and metaphorical. But selfishly, I’m glad she got herself out of there instead of facing Laampros in a severely weakened state. He’s got enough contempt for her and Duncan as it is.

          • davefragments

            Let’s just say that we disagree.

            I think she was like “Die Koenige Der Nacht” — a rather horrible person.

            edit: oops, no “e” on that “night” and that “oe” is an umlaut O.

          • Klaus

            But it was Laampros who told Kyle “Do not tremble my beloved son” and promised Duncan the revenge of Hell.

          • davefragments

            Laampros is the other bad guy…
            While Sircea is the other bad girl (and not in the Irma La Douce way of “bad girl”)

      • Eris, elder daughter of Nyx

        Duncan . . .

  • Skudplastr

    Is this the part where the Annihilator wakes up and tells the YP that he and the priestess were the good guys all along and now the world is screwed? Yep, not looking forward to that bit. :p

    • davefragments

      I don’t think so. He’s on the hook to Laampros to deliver and if he doesn’t, Lammpros is going to suck the life out of him, slowly and painfully.

      • Skudplastr

        I hope you’re right! A plot hook like that would be just too much stress, I’d need to get myself a drink.

        • davefragments

          Remember, Kyle is kin to Laampros. Maybe even his son.

      • Klaus

        But he still thinks they are doing this to save the earth. And he may be right.

        • davefragments

          Duncan wanted to team up with our gang of young heroes but the Platinum Princess didn’t. I think Duncan was super by her.

    • timemonkey

      He tried that already.

  • Hours Left

    She was about to have her “if it wasn’t for you kids and your meddling dog” moment. But instead of a dog, it was a giant laser bear demon.

    • Skudplastr

      Giant laser bear demon saying “Rooby-Roo!” I can’t handle it! XD

  • Pietro7

    I think I want her hair. Gorgeous silvery color, full-bodied, immune to fire and sheds water rapidly, what’s not to like?

  • Shiny Gwilly

    Kyle has definitely heard enough monologuing at this point
    i doubt she planned out that portal very well, and was just a “take me anywhere but here” moment
    now that PP has let herself out, let’s focus on everything else
    *insert “f*** this s*** i’m out” song here*

  • TwilightDreamer

    Yaaaayy!!!!! ^_^
    ……but that sinking feeling in my stomach still hasn’t departed…..go away forshadowing! Let me enjoy their current victory! XP

  • davefragments

    And a Convivial Tuesday in April to you, Miss Platinum…

    wink, wink

  • I guess, maybe, Herself should have wasted the energy to send TYP to Duncan’s prison?

    • Eris, elder daughter of Nyx

      Now I really don’t understand why she didn’t open a porthole to get the YPs into Duncan’s underground prison; she had enough magical energy to open the portholes twice when she felt she really needed it. What gives? Was she lying to Duncan before? For what reason? Or was she just trying to save up power for the meeting with Laampros?

      • I would assume she was saving it for Laampros, you know, in case things took a bad turn.

  • Nate

    PP go down the hole…

    • *Doki has Tiny Toons flash back*

      • Nate

        I was hoping someone would get that! 😀

  • Odd_child_1

    So does this mean she was lying to Duncan all along? Also; one of those kids needs to pull out their cell phone and take a picture of the island so they can get her coordinates using Google Earth.

  • camelotcrusade

    Kyle: “They call me ‘H’ ‘cuz I turn asses to Ashes.”

    Well, almost. But still!

  • Earl Patterson

    She should know better that yada yada wont get her anywhere. Just strike and get over with it.

  • Jason Moon

    Don’t let the fireball hit yer butt on the way out! 🙂

  • Sapfo

    Did we win?

    • A battle within the war.

    • Are we there yet?

      • Don’t make me turn around!

        • Phyre Storm

          *kicks the back of the Admiral’s seat repeatedly*

          • Librarican

            Yellow punch buggie no punch backs.

  • Gregory In Seattle

    Could Fuzzy Wuzzy the Not-A-Bear be waiting for her? She was a tad distracted when opening the portal, after all.

    • Brian Hopkins

      One can only hope.

    • Klaus

      The terrain looks very different.

  • Oops. My tired brain shortly forgot it was camp morning when I set the clock last night, but I finally got time to comment.. And wow. This page is a whoa-page.

    They got her backed into a corner, to where she created another gateway to escape, only to fall down it in a very non-dignified way. Karma when she was arrogant enough to not ‘have the energy’ to send the team to Duncan’s before, only to have enough energy to repair the bone circle, and then create two gateways.

    Now, if feel more sure than before that she dropped Fluffy in a remote mountain area, somewhere in the east, on earth. Too bad it doesn’t look like she will end same place. She DID get dropped in water though, maybe in more than one way (could be Mitch style).

    Now, to look for Duncan again.

  • Jeldenil

    See you later, portal-creator

  • I’m of two minds about what might happen next. 1. Platinum Platypus pops in behind them, freshly healed and blasts the team senseless, or; 2. The battle with these two villains was never the big event. The real challenge that establishes Kyle as one of the greatest heroes in the world is Laampros and the portal, possibly, in some incredibly risky way that Spooky urges, restoring the walls between the worlds. I’m eager to see how it plays out!

    Panel one: What comes to mind is Admiral Kirk in Star Trek III: the Search for Spock. “I…have had enough…of…

    Panels Two and Three: “…YOU!!!”

    Panel Four: The “Search for Spock” influence continues. There is even the same pose with Die Uberbitch as with the falling Klingon, Kruge. Too bad Platinum Prettypants didn’t hit lava like he did.

    So sad, don’t cry, but please go, bye-bye!

    This page communicates “This isn’t the main event” to me in subtle ways. Firstly, a triumphant victory blast is usually a full-page affair with much red word balloonage. See aforementioned “I…have had enough…” line above. Here Kyle gets a wind-up and a blast that frankly doesn’t fit the “Oh, WOW!” pages I’ve seen by this team before. Don’t get me wrong. The quality is first-rate and professional. I only point out that it might be a subtle storytelling tool. I don’t know for certain, so I wait to turn the page Saturday and find out.

    Alex said that this was the story about how Kyle became the greatest hero of his day–I think. Don’t quote me. I’m on drugs and thank you, they’re legal. That leads me to think that the big shebang awaits our heroes in the next page. No matter what happens, I’m here with bated breath. Alex, Adam, and Vero, thank you for yet another accomplishment you can feel proud about. Your creative team is epic.

    Your Fiend and Mine,
    The ever-loving, everlasting
    Don

  • D. G.

    Good bye sircea. What happens if lampros comes and she is not there?

  • Phyre Storm

    That’s what you get for wearing heels to a superfight. Jeez.

  • Klaus

    They actually gave her time to pick up the staff! Incredible stupidity!

    • Saxon_Brenton

      [cackles with glee] Oh, goodness! You’re right. Well spotted.

  • Ulysses Paxton

    A long-time reader from Artifice days but first time poster. Always fun to read the conversations resulting from each new page. It’s quite the community!

    I wonder why Tsu can’t stir up the water beneath PP and bounce her back through that gate to get her just deserts, especially if she’s unconscious, as the script says. At the very least, he could use the water to bring her staff back so Spooky could destroy it. Of course, that might short circuit some of Alex’s circuitous plotting!

    • Klaus

      That water is far away. Even if Tsunami could bring it up from such a distance, it would take too long.

    • Hi Ulysses. Can’t really say ‘welcome’, as you have been around so long, but hiya and nice to see you in the comments 🙂

      It’s indeed a great community here.

  • Klaus

    She dropped her staff again. Is she capable of flight? She must be confident that she can land safely, or she would have opened the portal close to the ground.

    • Sterling Ericsson

      At least it’s over water and not land. Though…from that height, it will still hurt a lot.

  • Michael

    Go Kyle!

  • Aitsuki

    OW. Look at those burns all over her belly and chest….owwie.

    • Klaus

      That’s what you get for playing with fire.

  • Mikki

    I want to know what happened to Anni. I feel like it’s going to be another 3 pages before that happens though… {:(

  • Concerto

    I’m under the impression that this will end soon. I don’t want young protector to end now, I’m not prepaare ;-;. (sorry for the english )

    • Columbine

      Never be sorry for learning/struggling with English. English is a terrible monster of a language.

      • Concerto

        Haha that’s comfort me a bit ! Thank you so much. I hope there will be a lot of interludes and a big last chapter o/. ( It’s really simple to understand english for me but speaking it is harder :c )

        • Derkins

          it’s like that learning any language, at first! keep practicing, it will get easier!

      • Vaira

        Cute. Welcome to Polish 😉

        • Columbine

          Never tried Polish. French, Arabic, Greek, sure but not Polish. I am unbelievably rubbish at languages.

          • Vaira

            Pronounciation is as bad as French, but grammar is hell. I’m really happy I don’t have to learn it as a second language.

    • Klaus

      This is chapter four of five. It will not end for many months. And who knows how many bonus comics and interludes Alex has planned?

      • Concerto

        Haha that’s comfort me a bit ! Thank you so much. I hope there will be a lot of interludes and a big last chapter o/.

      • Jason Wexler

        This is only page 50… while that puts it at comparable length to the first two chapters (61 and 49 respectively) the previous chapter was 122 pages… we may yet have weeks or months left of chapter 4.

      • Austin King

        Alex consider this: TYP never ends

        • Well this is The Young Protectors: Engaging the Enemy, so there lots of options for more TYP adventures. ^_^

          • Vaira

            Then there will be “Marrying the Enemy”, “Having Children with the Enemy”, “Maritial Crisis with the Enemy” and so on 🙂

          • Geez, I really feel like the odd one out. Sorry fans, but I don’t ship it.

          • Vaira

            I don’t really ship it myself (I just want the sex scene finished ;)), but what comes after Engaging? Marrying 😉

          • (Oooh, I got ya.) Tbh, I ship Kyle and Spooky. :3

          • Vaira

            I mostly ship [this or that way] adult-looking humans. Young adult-looking Kyle with adult Anni? Ok. Young adult-looking Kyle with child-looking Spooky – wait a few years. Unless both parties are the same age, then it’s cute, now kiss, hold hands and that’s enough 😉

          • Spooky’s not that young. And Kyle’s only 17. So I’m pretty sure they’re close in age.

          • Actually, Spooky is 20 and Kyle is 18 as of yesterday (comic time). 🙂 Mitch is 15, Commander is 22, Fluke is 17 (I believe) and Tsu is 21 (again I believe). 🙂

          • No one on the team is allowed to be the same age. Now they just need a 16 yr old and a 19 yr old.

          • Oh, cool. So they’re only 2 years apart. My ship is still intact! X3 lol

          • Yes yes it is!! And it’s a very good ship!

          • Ah, a fellow shipper. Glad I’m not the only one who ships them. 🙂

          • Oh no, definitely not the only one. I’m sure there are more of us around!

          • Yes, but the Kyle x Duncan shippers are overwhelming. 0o0

          • Well the Redilators have been around for a long time. 🙂

          • Redliators? (sorry, not familiar with the term)

          • Team Red Hot/Annihilator. Though not all ship the two together as a couple, some (such as myself) just want to see them reconcile. I just want to see them have coffee once a week whil Kyle goes on to date Spooky. 😛

          • Sounds nice. I want that to happen too.

          • Vaira

            That’s why I said “looking”.

          • Well in that case you’ll never ship them. Spooky’s got baby-face. That stays there for life.

          • Vaira

            That’s right. But Spooky has some young, poor boyfriend in a side story, so he’s accounted for.

          • What’re you talking about? The guy who has a boyfriend in a side story is Mitch aka Flyboy.

          • Vaira

            I may or may not have fast forwarded throuth the comic in one evening when I found it… ^^’

          • Ah. Ok, well now you know.

        • Klaus

          It may have to change name to The Old Protectors at some time, though.

    • There’s probably a year’s time to go before this is done. Maybe a little longer.

  • Columbine

    I love PP’s pose in panel one.

    Sometimes I feel like the poses/anatomy are a little tiny bit off in this comic (I get it, dynamic motion is really really hard). Usually it’s alright. Sometimes the poses just rock. That first panel rocks. She really looks like she’s mad enough to spring forward and bite.

  • Jason Wexler

    O.K. this is where Mitch needs to reappear quickly fly into the vortex grab her staff and fly out… just to be on the safe side.

  • eldestdawn

    Here’s hoping that last blow from Kyle ends up knocking her out long enough so she can’t pad her landing 😀

  • Austin King

    I know that this fight is happening page by page, but it feels like a months long fight. Kinda weird to be on a completely different schedule than the characters,

    • Jeff Baker

      Reminds me of buying comics when I was a kid and watching the story spread out over several months (And hanging on every word, like here! 🙂 )

  • timemonkey

    BURN THE WITCH!

    • Derkins

      but does she weigh as much as a duck?

      • Klaus

        It’s a fair cop.

  • Connor Yuzwenko-Martin

    Is she landing on a tiny island? I’m a little confused by the last panel. The island looks large, but then it looks like she is right on top of it already, so it’s barely bigger than she is.

    • Derkins

      I think she’s going to be falling a distance? her shadow is kinda confusing tho isn’t it. you’re making me second guess myself. maybe you’re right, and it’s a tiny island. :p

      • Connor Yuzwenko-Martin

        Right, it’s the shadow that’s confusing me! I couldn’t pinpoint it until you mentioned it. Thank you. Judging by the shadow, she should be mere centimetres above the island.

    • Derkins

      wait, I just figured it out! She’s falling toward the portal, and hasn’t hit yet. The shadow is being cast on the flat portal, which is like a window. she’s about to fall through and it will be quite a drop.

      • Connor Yuzwenko-Martin

        That’s possible too, and depends on the rules of physics the author and artist have established. I would personally say it’s more consistent to simply treat the portal like an open window, so any shadows cast would pass through it simply. After all, we can see the island and someone on the island could see her just fine, so light passes through the portal unaffected – shadow shouldn’t behave differently then.

        • Derkins

          For sure, but considering this isn’t actually a window, but maybe something more like a door, it could catch shadows (according to the author and artist’s physics)? Or maybe the artist added it to try to express that PP was above it still, thus providing depth? heh, or maybe she’s just casting a GIANT shadow on the ground. lol either way I guess we’ll have more information on the next page! XD

          • El Chupacabre

            Unless we just get a closing portal and no PP

  • Klaus

    Does the contingency spell exist in the YP universe?

  • bandanajack

    i’ve said it before, i’ll say it again, WHERE’S DUNCAN? can it be that there is redemption for the annihilator yet?

    (that was my best imitation of a 50’s movie serial voiceover. people over 65 will probably get it.)

    • I’m 16, and yet I still know what you’re talking about.

      • bandanajack

        really, the iconic voice of the cliffhanger narrator? who does that anymore?

        • No idea, but a lot of the old shows are available in different formats, and I’m sure there’s people that do it as a “tongue in cheek” tribute type way in their shows 🙂

      • bandanajack

        really, who does that anymore ?

        • I don’t know of anyone that still does it. But I’ve heard it from old shows. (mainly cartoons)

          • bandanajack

            oh, when i was a wee lad, some movie houses had a saturday matinee for kids for a quarter. candy cost a nickel or a dime, and flash gordon, jungle jim, or rocketman or tarzan would have a half hour episode, always with our hero in a terrible trouble, and then the voice over. i think superman was in there as well.

            i saw THE THING there and it scared me so bad i ran out of the theater to home half way through. in my defense i was about 10 years old, and its still scary

          • Oh wow. That’s cool.
            It’s probably been interesting watching entertainment and technology progress so much.

          • bandanajack

            interesting and damn hard to keep up with, especially on my senior citizen social security budget.

          • I ain’t rich either. That’s why I’m working a summer job.

          • bandanajack

            i got my first computer just when windows 95 came out, so i never had to monkey around with ms dos, and i have never been unplugged since, barring power outages .

          • I’ve always been interested in computers, and I’ve used my grandparents’ computer quite a bit. But I haven’t had a computer in my house since I was about 4. It was a really clunky computer, and apparently was used back when dial-up was still a thing. Luckily though, last year I made enough money at my summer job to get myself a laptop. Money well spent, I’ll tell you that. lol
            Whoops…went on a tangent a bit there. Sorry about that. :T

          • bandanajack

            wait, i’ll go too. a laptop is just a form factor of computers… as are tablets, and to a greater extent each year, so are smartphones. think about it, you can plug a 256 gig flash drive into your smartphone, if you have one that has expandable memory slot. that first computer of mine had blazing 1 gig hard drive, more than anyone was thought to need way back then, and more than most people had for another 5 years. i have had two other form factors in the past 5 years. an asus transformer, on of the first convertible tablets, and now i have a nuc, and an hp slate 21 pro, an android powered 21″ all in one desk computer, which is little more than an upright tablet on steroids, and a NUC a computer the size of a soup bowl. thank god this stuff is all very affordable now. you were probably, if it was really old, talking about a crt monitor, and a tower the size of a breadbox. you may have to look up breadbox on google to get that.

          • Actually, my old computer (as I recall it) pretty much looked like this:
            http://www.all4women.co.za/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/old-desktop-computer_detail.jpg

            Right now I have a tablet- Microsoft Surface RT
            and a laptop- HP stream 13 with Windows 8.1

            Once I have enough money though, I definitely want to get a desktop computer because my laptop doesn’t hold nearly enough memory. I keep having to use usb drives. But when I have a desktop it’ll be easier since it’ll all be in one place. That’ll be a while though considering I only work in the summer, and there are so many other things I want to buy.

          • bandanajack

            yup, pretty much what i described, although i didn’t bother with the keyboard. i was going to try to show you my original asus transformer. but the company named a newer window version the same designation, and they are like a firewall against anything about the original. they came out the year after the apple ipad blew up the market and other makers were scrambling. it was the first tablet/keyboard charging dock, and it did everything better, letterbox proportions for wide screen view. double the batteries top and bottom for about 10-11 hours battery life and an ips screen. i still have mine, but it just quit and i haven’t had time to figure out the problem, other than old age.

            this is the overview of my mini. despite what the review says, mine came loaded with win 10, so no messy conversion necessary. i bought it chiefly so that i could utilize 3 programs that were only available in windows formats. that old perception that android is only for mobile devices. turns out, my old android os now sleeps most of the time. windows is faster and cleaner, and this little bugger has a generous hard drive for its size. i was originally looking at plugins like the intel compute stick, but the price would not come down, then i saw this and its extra features and paid twice as much…

          • Woah! That’s a lot of money for what you’re buying.
            But I totally agree about the Windows thing. Imho, buying a computer with Windows is better than buying a Mac or anything of the sort.

          • bandanajack

            actually i am really cheap, i did shell out about $250 including shipping for the set, but my 21″inch android, that i am currently using mostly as a monitor, only cost me $200, and i only bought that because i thought my old 17″ lenovo had crapped out. turned out a trip to the windows story, turns out honolulu has one, and about 45 minutes for a clean install, and it is up and running.

            because i thought the laptop took the optical drive with it, and neither of my working computers had one, i picked up one online, and didn’t even pay for it, one of my old sponsees has amazon prime and had it shipped to me as a gift. somewhere in here, when i am supposed to be taking care of business, i am supposed to be uploading my cd collection to google play for safekeeping and not having to ship them.

          • You save where you can. I get it. I always get things with good enough quality but low enough price. Last year I actually got the most amazing deal. It was after christmas, so there were lots of sales. And I found a brand new Canon scanner/printer for only $25 on Amazon! I was just browsing and there it was. Super happy about it.

            i got a nice printer on sale once too, and it was fine until i had to replace the ink cartridge, and they would have cost more than the printer. i wasn’t up for that action, so it sat until my next yard sale.

            here is a sale site heads up, https://www.blinq.com
            the content varies and they carry almost anything, but the tech deals can be exceptional, and their promises are kept and their return policy generous. save your first order for something big and take advantage of a fat discount.

          • Cool, thanks. And I think the ink cartriges for mine are about $25 for a color one and $19 for a regular one.

          • bandanajack

            i am not a big fan of windows, and i spend a lot of time using android so i was fine until i wanted to use irfanview and poper blocker. both are really good at what they do, and neither was supported by windows. most of the time you can find an android analog, but not for those two devices which i needed for what i do.

          • bandanajack

            ing why not get an external drive, you can find 1 or 2 T external drives on sale everywhere. you might even want to check blinq.com and use that 25% discount on top of a sale price drive. a lot cheaper and less bulky than a desktop. to me. the best part of a laptop is that it folds up freeing up all that space, AND shutting away your current projects from prying eyes.you can even look into a desk/table that has a slide under shelf, like the old desks did for keyboards, only bigger shelf.

          • Yeah. I’ve thought about that. I think I’m gonna do that actually. Thanks.

  • Pikinanou

    I admit: I wasn’t expecting her to run away. It’s a pleasant surprise 🙂

  • Mir

    That must be one hell of a dirt-proof outfit. After all that it still manages to look pristine.

  • Jeff Baker

    Let’s see—a magically powered supervillianess, Hell-bent on conquest, crash-lands on the island and Gilligan and the rest STILL don’t get rescued! 🙂

    • Pietro7

      LOL! Yes, it fits perfectly!

  • Toli Bera

    Does this mean princess pretty whiskers will be there to greet PP? :O

  • bandanajack

    anyone else thinking laampros will show up and kyle will say “chill dad”?

  • Justin White

    YEAHH!

  • Starfighter updated! AND WE FINALLY GET CAIN’S REAL NAME!!! http://starfightercomic.com/chapter_04_comments.php?page=Chapter_04_Page_81.jpg

    • D. G.

      Thx doki.

  • T Dibbler

    So, that looked painful.

    It will be interesting to see what happens next, what with the poor sacrificial victims in their box of death and all.

  • Dekira

    You GO Kyle!! Give that birch a nice and pretty farewell “fuck you!”

  • bronakopdin

    ok, quite late to the party but I had my very dear foreign (even though both of us still are German natives anyway lol) friend visited me for 8 days and these happenings always show how less time one can spend on a PC actually xDD
    We had a great time 😀

    but now that she’s left again, I can do some catching up on my online stuff 🙂
    including webcomics!

    I see the Alliteration game is ongoing! Even if it’s in Alex’ comment xD “Wicked Witch of White” is surely competitive!

    What is Duncan though? The “Moody Muscle Mate”?

    Either way our own personal WWW “linked” herself to safety… for now… Question is whether our heroes can stop the countdown clock and free the sacrifices!
    I surely hope so >_<'

    And I wanna see Spooky, Paul and Duncan!

  • wow. I was away for a month and i just caught up now.
    WOW 🙂

    I am really curious to see where all this goes!!! 🙂

  • Galopa WXY

    Crap! She escaped D:
    She kind of left Duncan behind, too.

  • davefragments

    Tonight’s page has two possibilities (that’s what I call my guesses)…
    a) Laampros shows up
    or b) we find out what happened to Fluke and Spooky

    • or c) PP messed portals up and falls in the not so welcoming paws of laser-notabear

      But I’d seriously go for b) [or b)’ what happened to Duncan]

      • davefragments

        I’d settle for sharks but that’s already been done in at least two movies. It’s an uninventive idea on my part but still, Pacific Ocean being Pacific Ocean… (I think she’s landing near Easter Island because in a previous page, there were Moai )

  • Someone grab the staff, grab the staff!!

    • Saxon_Brenton

      Oh, that would be brilliant. Probably Flyboy zooming in for a last second snatch-and-grab, but a ‘Bigby’s Hand’ manouevre from Tsunami is also a possibility (despite his past complaints about not having particularly good fine motor control).

      • Or maybe Spooky is awake enough to grab it with his magic.

        • Anyway, he would be the only able to use it!

    • Could a waterhand grab it if it’s already past the portal?

    • Or maybe Commander has telekinetic powers too (shame on me I can’t remember)

      • I believe it’s just psychical.

        • All right then, she’ll just have to persuade the staff to come to her, ne?

  • Hello good gents and ladies~!

    For those interrested, 933 Dollars updated http://933dollars.webcomic.ws/comics/427

  • Doki is saddened by the world. Just want to forget the world for a bit.

    • There, there *pats*

      And by that I mean “Here, here” is where you can leave the ‘real’ World troubles at the door…

    • davefragments

      I think that we will see more of Mitch this next page.

    • Saxon_Brenton

      Do we want to create more parts of our own, then? (ie, fanfic vignettes.)

      • *sigh* There was a small shooting incident the other morning about 15-20 minutes from Doki. Doki is thankful she doesn’t know the shooter, the one person killed, or the other injured parties. The shooter was shot, but not killed.

        • They suspect the motivation might have been the coverage of the deaths by police.

          • davefragments

            We can’t let tragedy become more tragedy.
            That’s how evil wins. We have to find ways to stop it, even if it is only in our hearts and minds.

  • Morning, campers. No forgetting it’s camp today as last time where my tired brain was a day ahead.

  • FFotW (Fun Fact of the Week) in the city of Mulhouse, East of France, they ordered a sculpture for the City Grand Place in the early 1900’s. When it was delivered, the Schweissdissi (the guy who sweats in local German dialect) was looking away from the Church and made a grosse skandaal as he was buttnekkit! The Church asked (and obteined that he looked an other way, then the Town Hall
    felt ridiculed so they transfered the statue in a park and surrounded his back with a hedge… http://www.lavieamulhouse.com/mulhouse/upload_forum/2013/ADN40_16-11-2013-96426.jpg

    And it was such a nice booty too what a shame‼ http://www.lavieamulhouse.com/mulhouse/upload_forum/2014/Henri_28-08-2014-38746.jpg

      Years ago I joked that I wanted one of those little boy piddling fountains that faced my neighbor who kept his yard filled with junk.
      Sadly, I never did save enough money to buy it.
