The Young Protectors: Engaging The Enemy Flyboy Bonus Comic—Page 14

197 Comments on The Young Protectors: Engaging The Enemy Flyboy Bonus Comic—Page 14

Oh. My. God.

If you’re curious about checking out one of Adam DeKraker’s earlier projects, there are just 9 days left of a Kickstarter for Nancy Kilpatrick’s Vampyre Theater Graphic Novel. The creator of this comic gave Adam a ton of work when he was just starting out. Adam says “YP readers might dig the sexiness of the subject matter as well as the chance to take a peak at my humble beginnings. :)” Intrigued? Check it out here.

Over at the Patreon Page, $5+ backers got to see a sneak preview of Adam’s pencils for The Annihilator’s Romance Card art. Here’s a sneak preview of that sneak preview:

I wonder what he’s smiling about, hm?

Over 1150 readers like you have already joined the fun. There are lots of great benefits to being a Patron (you can see them all here along with an explanation of what the heck Patreon is), and you’d really be helping me out if you became one too. If you’re enjoying our work here and would like to see it continue (and would like to get access to all kinds of special benefits),

please take a moment to watch the video on my Patreon page and consider becoming a Patron.

So! We’ve established that Flyboy isn’t bulletproof. But it seems like he has a plan! Is it going to work? Will Cory step up and do the right thing? And did Mitch really used to be called “Mitchell”???

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

  • Dude!!

    • Sapfo

      you snuck of with my V?

      • Sorry. (not really…lol)

        • Sapfo

          It´s been to long for me. Must be of my game 😉

          • Just a little rusty?

          • Sapfo

            *get out the grandma cane*
            I can not keep up with you huligans.
            *Smacking with my toothless mouth*

            Dont have the bit anymore 😉

          • As long as you don’t mind if I’m running about on your lawn. 😀

          • Sapfo

            Dont you go stealing my apples now. You have your coffee my dear. Leave my apples alone o.O

          • Depends upon the apples! But I’ll leave a bag of coffee if I do steal one, promise.

          • Sapfo

            Hmmm…. let´s make a deal, one bag of coffee for one bag of apples, sounds fair 😀

          • Sapfo

            you dont have some cakes you can leave also?

          • I wish I had cakes!

          • Sapfo

            Cookies?
            I am sure that Mitch will feel a whole lot better knowing I have some cookies

          • Wish I had those too! I have some left over pancakes from this morning!

          • Deal!

  • Sapfo

    A little patch for tiny Mitch.

  • You couldn’t call him Mitch? But I guess calling him Mitchell is ok,

  • jreed3842

    *is very intrigued*
    I can’t wait to see where this goes!

  • davefragments

    He’s trying to bargain and not too successfully.
    I don’t think Ivan likes bargains.

    • I don’t think Ivan likes anything, especially surprises.

      • davefragments

        Ivan is in big trouble to consider ripping off hoods using someone else’s superpowers.

        • I suppose Ivan isn’t very good at all of this.

          • davefragments

            I have thoughts that Ivan is a plain thug and not in the upper and richer or decision-making of the bad guys. He got in deep in something he tried and has to find big bucks to pay off with another gangster’s money.
            Not the way you want to stay alive.

          • Indeed not.

            No, he doesn’t strike me as the sort to be the big boss.

          • Phyre Storm

            He’s a henchman trying to achieve actual villain status.

          • I don’t see him getting that promotion anytime soon.

          • Phyre Storm

            I didn’t say he was doing a good job. 😛

        • Klaus

          It would seem that Ivan is a bottom rung hood who has somehow got to know too much, and is now trying to use this knowledge to his advantage in the most blockheaded way possible.

  • Sapfo

    Mitch, I hate to break it to you. but that little bandaid, is not going to be enough.

    • Sapfo

      Unless it is a hero bandaid, with superpowers o.O

      • Well he was prepared. That’s something. Maybe.

        • Sapfo

          For scrapes on the knee?

          • He may get a lot of scraped knees. What with flying fast everywhere/

          • Michael

            Not to mention the landings.

          • Yup!

      • Saxon_Brenton

        Maybe it has the same properties as Duct Tape of Healing?

        • Sapfo

          I belive in magic, elfs and hero bandaid ^_^

  • Michael

    OH MY.

  • Michael

    Cue flashback to a young kiddie Mitch asking kiddie Cory to let him help him.

    For some reason, I’m getting a gut feeling that Mitch’s last line, “let me help you” is significant in the their shared past.

  • Jason Moon

    Cory is in the unenviable position of telling the absolute truth and being with a guy who will NEVER realize this. No matter how this ends, I suspect Ivan will try to kill him if he has a chance. He strikes me as precisely that kind of asshole.

  • Sapfo

    I´m not sure that what Mitch is doing is the best thing to do. He might end up turning them agains each other, but that might end up hurting someone. And Mitch have already been hurt himself.

    Thank you for a lovely page.
    Hope you all have a good day/night ^^

    • I think you could be right.

      Enjoy your day, Ms Strawberry!

    • You’re very welcome, Sapfo! I’m really glad you like the page!

  • Mary Klemzak

    A graze?!? Honey pie, Horses graze. You, my young sweet sunshine boy, need stitches. And possibly an antibiotic. Owie. Hurts just to look.

  • davefragments

    I read — “If I could just get get through to him” and I think not a chance.

  • Oh, I was checking the wrong address link. Good thing I went back to last page for a quick check before I have to run off for work (Blarg for oversleeping >.<)

    Things are now about to get very interesting. Not that they weren't before, but on a new level. Has Mitch just made it shortly worse by making Cory realize he knows him? How will Ivan react next? Another hostage right there in front of him that has personal meaning for Mitch.
    Guess this will come down to Cory now – and Diego not being stupid either.

    And that's all I have time to say before I now take off at a speed much slower than Mitch 😉

    • davefragments

      I noticed that the URL is different.

  • davefragments

    I have to go to sleep. Hope y’all have a good day or night whatever part of the world you are in.

  • Jeldenil

    How long before Mrs Badass Security Guard will come to her senses after that rescue? I am pretty sure she will try to mingle. And/or call the cops.

    • Klaus

      That depends on who she works for. If it is the owners of that vault, the people she will call are not going to show quite as much restraint as the cops would.

      • Jeldenil

        American cops and restraint? (Uh, I’m maybe biased as I only read the BLM posts about police violence, and don’t live in the States, but yeah, I don’t get the impression they would show much restraint on non-white suspects)

        • Phyre Storm

          Hey, they’re not all like that. Most American cops are decent people just trying to do their jobs. The bad ones who get all the press are definitely a problem, but they’re far from a majority.

          • Chaos

            Decent people just doing their jobs by NOT arresting the non-decent cops and treating them exactly how all cops everywhere treat any other heavily armed person who wanders around with weapons in plain sight and draws and possibly uses them on anyone who fails to scrape and bow properly. Ya, they sound horribly decent.

          • Phyre Storm

            Cops are people too. Your bigotry is showing, bud.

          • Chaos

            Aww that’s cute you think I hate them because they uphold the law and protect folks ? I hate them because they DON’T but still lie and claim they do. Really the whole mess is like being in an abusive relationship, Officer Smiley loves you so much he has to leave bruises. And hey, it’s all really your fault, you shouldn’t have made him angry. But he promises he’ll never hurt you again………today.

          • Phyre Storm

            Is police violence a problem? Yes.

            Are some cops racist? Yes.

            Are some cops horrible bullies who abuse their power? Yes.

            Do way too many other cops cover for the bad ones out of a mistaken sense of loyalty? Sadly, yes.

            Does that justify hatred for all cops? No. No, it fucking doesn’t.

            Calm the hell down.

          • Phyre, telling someone to “calm the hell/fuck down” is outside the “tone of respect” that is asked of all the commenters here.

            We really like having you here, you have many interesting things to add to the various discussions, but please be aware that using words/phrases like “calm the hell down” are fighting words. We have the fine community that we do because of Alex’s Commenting Policy insisting on respectful interactions.

            Yes, there are the occasional situations and rude posts, but jumping in and responding with the same same disrespectful tone will only cause a bigger problem and will make it unpleasant for the rest of the community.

          • Phyre Storm

            Yeah, OK, that wasn’t very “respectful” of me. I don’t know why you’re telling me off and not the person I was talking to, though.

          • Chaos

            Off hand I can only think of one cop that i’ve heard of out of all of them that didn’t support the bad ones in some way, either by not treating them the same as they’d treat a homeless person suspected of the shit they pull, or by just idly standing by, letting it happen, and saying “but, but, not all cops are bad”. You can read about that guy here : http://www.copblock.org/65777/a-good-i-e-former-cop-speaks-out/

          • Hi Chaos.

            As Phyre was reminded, we have a Commenting Policy on this site, and one of the biggest priorities is to keep a tone of respect when replying to another commenter. Even more so when you have a dissagrement.
            You can read about it here: http://webcomics.yaoi911.com/comment-policy/

          • Chaos

            Sry man, but I havea strict policy of not respecting those who refuse to respect me, and my sarcasm and snark is permanently on. Simplest answer is to just never comment again.

          • Adam Black

            Yes you are right.
            But its irrelevant . Its not about “all Cops” , its about how the system functions as a whole.

            Unfortunately there are many reported incidents where the good cops who speak -out, lose their jobs and are blacklisted. Silence and complicity are rewarded, and people going along with it , get promoted over everyone else.

          • Phyre Storm

            You are unfortunately correct about how whistleblowers are treated among the police–and elsewhere, for that matter. Loyalty can be a wonderful thing, but EVERYONE should check their morals before just going along with what their friends want.

          • Adam Black

            Its not about “everyone” ,
            Its about the system of Justice we all rely on, being unwilling and unable to police-itself.

            Its about violent criminals being able to commit crimes with impunity, if they are in a police union.

            Its not peoples friends.
            Its about a toxic Professional work-culture that needs to be changed.

            Its no longer about Individual responsibility , its about our collective responsibility to a widespread social ill. Its being done in our name.

        • Madock345

          Lol. Learning about american police from BLM groups is like learning about muslims from Fox News.

          • Jeldenil

            :S

        • Chaos

          Try any suspect, and by suspect I mean anyone who doesn’t have a badge. Our cops would just shoot the shit outta the kid on sight, prolly shoot mitch too. They really don’t like having ALL the power.

  • Klaus

    The question is now: can Cory only push and pull, or can he also squeeze? Like flattening that gun barrel.

    • Phyre Storm

      Or how about pulling the gun out of Ivan’s hand?

  • Diviana

    Cory, stop giving away Mitch’s secret identity! Now I am very curious what happens to Cory since he isn’t part of the Young Protectors.

  • Aitsuki

    Wow Cory, what a punk move. You don’t go shouting out a hero’s real name!

    • dereule101

      I know! I groaned in exasperation.

      Mitch: “This is why you’re not on a team, Cory. I feel like we’ve gone over this. -_-“

    • Columbine

      ‘What’s your name?’
      ‘Don’t tell him Pike!’

  • TwilightDreamer

    almost bouncing in anticipation…. :P…..Mitch, pleeeease be careful…uuuh….from now on….

  • Phyre Storm

    Mitch. Dude. Call. The. Fucking. COPS.

    THEN go back to being heroically stupid.

    • Chaos

      yes, calling the cops is certainly the best way to get both mitch and his friend in deep shit…… or did you think the cops were going to let the powered kid go free? He’s going straight to super-prison to get super- raped by super-speeders 3000 times a day.

      • Let’s not go there, Chaos. That subject, while it can be discussed, it should be handled with respect and care and not just thrown around for shock value.

        Also, one of the things we value most of all in the TYP comments section is using a tone of respect when we post. Alex explains in the Comment Policy regarding this.

        • Chaos

          Eh good point, I should have just implied it, but it’s rather obvious what’d happen to a kid like him tossed in with super powered killers.

      • Phyre Storm

        …Wow.

        I’m sorry for whatever experience(s) you’ve had with bad cops. I can’t stand people who abuse their authority either, and yes, cops covering for each other when some of them go bad is a major problem.

        That said, calm the fuck down. Most cops really are decent folks with a very tough job, and rape metaphors aren’t called for.

        • Phyre, I know such a post is upsetting, but I’ve already stepped in. It would be best to let the mods handle this than get caught up in an unpleasant situation. 🙂

          • Phyre Storm

            Yeah, because I totally couldn’t handle that. 🙂

            OK, OK, I’m done.

          • Not that you couldn’t handle it, but it’s better all the way around to let the mods handle it. To keep the peace and all. 🙂

        • Klaus

          Why do you see this as an attack on the police? If the police were to arive now, Cory would be sent to some sort of jail. How is that abuse of authority? I don’t understand that at all.

          And the rape is no metaphor. People do get raped in jail, especially young men like Cory. How bad the risk is I do not know, but metaphorical it is not.

          • Phyre Storm

            I see Chaos’s comment as an attack on the police because of xir other comments in which xe specifically attacked the police.

            I’m pretty sure Cory could get out of jail if he needed to, and maybe a few days in jail would help him remember not to trust his brother’s asshat friends.

            As for prison rape, I totally agree that that is a horrible problem that needs far more attention and prevention.

  • Ninhursag

    He finally realised it was Mitch? I know some years have passed since they last saw each other, but damn, it took him a little too long to realise.

    • stickfigurefairytales

      Well, he hasn’t actually seen him clearly at all yet. Mitch was moving at super speed earlier, and now he’s hiding behind a wall. Cory’s just hearing his voice.

      • Ninhursag

        You’re right, I thought he saw Mitch when he wasn’t moving at super speed as well.

  • Alt+F7

    Congratulations on the patreon milestone, Alex!

    Not least because it means another chance for my Laampros X Maven dreams to be realised. >.>

    • Thank you! 🙂 I feel very grateful.

      (And may all your dreams come true.)

  • Madock345

    I wonder how many other supplies Mitch keeps in that jacket?

    • Klaus

      Is it a utility jacket?

  • Kate G

    I will not drool over how sexy Mitch looks, I will not drool over how sexy Mitch looks, I will not drool…*drools slightly*

    Okay, but seriously, Mitch, that is not a graze graze. That looks like it needs some stitches, not a band-aid. I love ya to death, but it needs more than a band-aid.

    Katie of Kate & Zena is a NERVOUS WRECK. My pup, Zena, gets operated on tomorrow and I’m all full of jitters. Even that hard ride at the stables hasn’t stopped the jitters (although it has made me pretty tired.) My baby, my poor wittle baby going in for a big surgery. *gnaws on nails* If alcohol didn’t send me to the ER, I would pour myself a drink.

    • *hugs* I wish Zena well tomorrow.

      It might just be one of those shallow ones that tends to bleed a lot. I have had many a shallow cut on my finger, but it bled like my finger was cut clean through. This will at least be a temporary fix while he handles the situation and then gets a proper look at it later. I have faith in Mitch’s ability to look after himself, ^_^

      • Kate G

        That’s true. My first dog bit me on the nose (this was a long LONG time ago) and I thought I was going to die from all of the blood. It was a shallow wound but it produced so, much. blood. It’s kind of funny now that I look back on that.

        • Klaus

          Wounds in the face usually bleed much more than a similar wound elsewhere.

          • Kate G

            Yep. I’ve learned that a few times over. I’m very, VERY clumsy. I was a bleeder before, but now I bleed even more because of my autoimmune drugs! LOL. My paper cuts that bleed are like blood city.

          • KatKaleen

            True! Face (head in general) and hands have a very active bloodflow, cuts and bruises bleed like crazy.

    • Adam Irving

      Here’s to a great vet and wondrous assistants. I’m sure he’ll be wagging her tail at you before you know it!

      • Kate G

        Oh, I know. She goes to a wonderful place (it’s the best in our area honestly.) Of course, that doesn’t help much when your pup is basically your child so you worry anyway! At least I’ve stopped thinking of every bad possible scenario! (That was yesterday!)

    • KatKaleen

      Oh, I feel with you! Poor pup. It’s gonna be okay, though. You picked the best vet in the area, it’s gonna be okay.

  • Adam Black

    I just realized something tonight!
    Its been 3 years and Our Fandom, doesn’t even have a name!
    That just aint right.

    “The Protectorati” “Young Lusters” , “Hot-stuffers”
    “Captain Caveman and the Teen Angels”

    i cant do this all by myself. Jump in people.

    • jreed3842

      Lol. I say we just call ourselves “The Best damn Fandom on the entire Internet” and call it a day…. Because, ya gotta admit, we’re all pretty freakin’ fantastic. 😀

      • Hear, hear!!

        Not to mention modest. 😛

      • Adam Black

        That will never survive my aphasia.
        & would probably get shortened over times to “The Damned Fans” —- which is probably more suitable for Hellboy , or a Lovecraftian comic .

      • Adam Black

        SHORTENED: “Yippee Damned-Fandooms”
        or “Fraeking Fantastix Fanatics”?
        “Fire Freaking Fanatatastrix ?

    • Klaus

      The YPcrowd fans.

      • Adam Black

        Is “YP” pronounced Yippee ?

        • Klaus

          Ip as in Ipcress.

          • Adam Black

            If we choose “the Yippee Shippies ” you get half the blame for sparking that

    • KatKaleen

      I’m not the most active commenter in this fandom and I haven’t been around for three years, I only discovered Artifice about six months ago (?) and moved to YP from there, but I do like the sound of “Protectorati”.

      • Adam Black

        I think “The Woolf Pack” is sure to win,
        But I’m cool with calling @alexwoolfson:disqus the Mods, and The Top Commenters Club “the Protectorati “

    • I’ve sometimes refered to us here as ‘Youngsters’.

      • Adam Black

        You are just trying to get us carded.

      • Adam Black

        Young Quirks?
        Young Flirts ?

    • Connor

      The Young Protectorate?

      • Adam Black

        I kind of like it.
        Although It does have a vaguely sinister air to it, as in:
        “iT would be a shame if something happened to that stylus”
        or
        “Give us the Sexy-Menz comics and nobodies Kneecaps have to break”

        It would also be a good name for alt-universe , evil version of the YP.

    • Saxon_Brenton

      Hmm. I really like ‘Protectorati’, but I think I should point out that it emphasises Alex’s current webcomic. Or to put it another way, if the question had been asked more than a few years ago, then the suggested names would have been based on the then-current webcomic, Artifice (“Arti-friends’, perhaps).

      Now, possibly that’s okay, and the fandom is happy to rename itself every half decade or so. But if that isn’t, then perhaps a name reflecting that we’re fans of Alex’s work and AMW Comics generally.

      • Nate

        The Woolf Pack?

        • Ha!

        • stickfigurefairytales

          Ooh, I like that!

        • Saxon_Brenton

          Works for me. Certainly better than anything I was able to think up while I was sleeping on the problem last night.

          • Adam Black

            16 new ones to test above

        • I will also put in a vote for The Woolf Pack. ^_^

        • davefragments

          That’s George and Martha’s party line. . .

          (giggle, giggle, wink, wink)

          • Adam Black

            i do dont get

          • davefragments

            It was a reference to the other great Woolf in literature who was memorialized by Edward Albee’s “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf” where George and Martha have an evening or party games with reality and illusion.
            This is (after all) Ivan’s party and Mitch is destroying his illusions (pipe dreams) of wealth and power.

          • Adam Black

            any relation?

          • davefragments

            I don’t understand

          • Adam Black

            Virginia and Alex?

          • davefragments

            You’d have to ask Alex. I haven’t read my Woolf but I have met (many years ago) Edward Albee. I don’t remember much more about him than that he had a yappy little dog and was a bitchy queen. (Sorry, that’s so no PC but I know of no other words that describe what was a 3 minute conversation when I was 16 years old). . .

          • Adam Black

            why obfuscate?

          • davefragments

            Well, five decades later I wouldn’t use those words.

        • I like that one for more than one reason 🙂
          As an overall name that has my vote. Maybe there could still be Group names still names for specific comics, but that one covers all of them.

          • Adam Black

            The top Commenters Club / top donators Mods can still be
            ‘the Protectorati’

          It has a certain panache.

          • Adam Black

            We have to Protect the Marshmallows from the Woolf Pack, I hear they are voracious

    • Sapfo

      “people sitting around a camping fire and wait for comic page twice a week”? might be a bit to long 😉

      Well “the Woolf Pack” seems to be a top choice.

      And a few liked “The Protectorati ”

      I have also thought of a few more:
      “The Spooky Squad”

      or “the Spooky YPsters
      ( Why-pster)

      ( the Yippie Shippies ? )

      “the Spooksters”

      “The Yippie Spooksters ”

      “The Woolf Protectors”

      “The Woolf Puppies”

      “The Yippee Puppies ”

  • Zachary Lucido

    (Crushes man with gun)
    Corry:
    He demonstrated an eagerness to kill that sending him to prison would not have stopped. Or do you think that he, and the large crime sindicate I killed seconds ago, should be sent to prison just so they can rape and torture strangers for fun? Vigilantism is not unethical inherently. Tell me what is wrong with my actions?

    • Klaus

      The security guard has been hired to guard something, most likely one of the neighbouring buildings. Even if she is hired to guard this building, she needs not know much about her employers. She may or may not know that there is a vault. It is very unlikely that she knows what is in it.

  • stickfigurefairytales

    For some reason Cory calling him “Mitchell” makes me laugh. I think it’s how formal it sounds.

  • Hello everybody!

    • davefragments

      Hi. How’s it going tonight?

      • Well, I’m about to start bbqing a steak for dinner!

        • davefragments

          I went food shopping today and bought a rotisserie chicken. Collected all my mail and looked at the lawn to see how long I can neglect to mow it.
          I can use a steak right now. The thought is like yummy, drool, an’nat.

          • stickfigurefairytales

            Chicken is tasty too though.

          • And rotisserie chicken is so simple too!

          • davefragments

            Especially since all I have to do is cut it apart and cook some oven french fries.

          • Yup! They’re so great when I don’t wanna cook.

          • davefragments

            I’m mildly claustrophobic and supermarkets are hellish places for me. I have this desire to scream at anyone that comes too close when the store is crowded.

          • I’m with you there. I always end up with a cookie or something for my nerves

          • davefragments

            I used to buy a pack of small powdered donuts and eat them while shopping until I heard a 8 year old pipe up and say — “but that man is eating in the store, why can’t I?”
            Damn, damn, damn, shamed by a little kid!

          • Rotten little kid! Doesn’t he know the horror of the grocery store? Ugh!

          • davefragments

            yes!

          • davefragments

            I bought a steak and tomorrow, I will grill it with onions to put on a backed potato.
            (I’m obsessed with for tonight)

          • I’m glad we don’t have a lawn. Though if we really get that godzilla el nino, well the weed eater will get worked over time in the spring.

          • davefragments

            It’s been hot and dry for a week to ten days and the grass has stopped growing. Still, it’s the first time I l looked at the gras and the new driveway and liked it. I must be getting used to the new driveway and forgetting the old.

        • stickfigurefairytales

          Ooh, good luck!

          • Yeah it’s windy out too, so we’ll see how it goes!

          • stickfigurefairytales

            Don’t get flambe-ed!

    • stickfigurefairytales

      Hello!

      • Hiya Stick!! How was the job thing thing?

        • stickfigurefairytales

          It was good! I’ll probably be making some more trips out to train with the person who lives in Erie (she’s like the expert on our system of doing things), and each time will probably be me spending two days and one night there.

          The company will pay for my hotel room and food and gas, so that’s awesome. 🙂

          • Heck yeah! That’s an awesome company!

          • stickfigurefairytales

            It is! 😀

    • jreed3842

      Hello!!
      Uh… I was gonna ask how you’re doing, but davefragments already has that covered! A Steak for dinner sounds delicious!

      • With asparagus on the side!

        • jreed3842

          I’m a little bit jealous!

        • My brother always complains when I fix asparagus. *pouts*

          • I’m picky with my asparagus. I prefer them to be thin stalks and either sauted or roasted with a bunch of seasoning.

            But it does make your pee stink.

          • He says the house stinks whenever I cook them. -_- The smell isn’t that bad when baked though.

    • hey AJ, going to claim another one tonight?

  • davefragments

    Giovani Ribisi is about to deliver the greatest line in AVATAR — “What have you people been smoking?”

    • stickfigurefairytales

      Is that the blue people, James Cameron Avatar?

      • davefragments

        Yes. He’s the greedy boss of the miners.

        • stickfigurefairytales

          Okay.

  • davefragments

    Oh HORRORS!
    Suspense and more suspense.

  • stickfigurefairytales
  • bronakopdin

    yay for a short time on the internet xD
    First thing I did was checking my mails… holy crap over 80 emails since Aug 31st!
    It’s times like these when you realize just how many stuff you get sent only a daily basis o_O
    I really had to laugh though when I realized that about 20 of them, aka a fourth, were from you, Alex, through Patreon xD
    somehow I liked that a lot 🙂

    So gladly no real bad damage and apparantly negotioations started!
    Cory now knows who’s there, what will his reaction be apart from calling god and Mitch’s name within a speechbubble?

    It’s so nice to be able and check immediately for a change xD
    off to the next page!
