The Young Protectors: Engaging The Enemy Flyboy Bonus Comic—Page 35

215 Comments on The Young Protectors: Engaging The Enemy Flyboy Bonus Comic—Page 35

I love what Adam and Vero did with Panel 4. 🙂

Earlier this week, I sent out the Full Monty version of Kyle’s Fireman Romance Pin-Up to Patrons pledging $5+ — and folks really liked it! Comments have included “nomnomnom”, “I love it! … Why is he blushing? He has nothing to be ashamed of!”, and “did I say wow? This is a beautiful image… Thank you Alex and to the artists for always making these images (sfw or nsfw) so classy and appealing and always in character — in a way that supports this world and these characters we’ve grown to love.” (It really is our pleasure! :D)

And a couple days ago, I shared the SFW Version of The Annihilator’s Romance Pin-Up with $5+ Patrons!

Comments for that have included: “Ahhh The Duncanator with his first and true love!”, “I love this picture…. he looks so damn sexy! Adam and Alex providing another stellar piece of art. Thanks as always Alex and team!! :)”,  and “These images are so darn fun AND sexy. My favorite combo-platter. Great stuff!”

Here’s a sneak peek of that:

What is this man smiling about?

Folks who join right now will be able to download the full wallpaper for this. Also, $10+ Patrons will get to download a high-res version of this pin-up (with over double the resolution!) when this month’s payments clear at the beginning of next month. And they’ll also get to download a high-res of the NSFW version of this pin-up where the boxers come off!

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! Looks like Cory is back on Planet Earth — or at least back in Flyboy’s arms. Is he done ripping apart the city? How will he react when he sees Diego? And will they arrive back in time to save Cory’s brother?

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

  • I’m starting to wonder how Cory’s stomach will handle this xD

    • stickfigurefairytales

      Nice catch, Danish!

      • Yay! Three to go to my V-milestone.. I think.

        • bronakopdin

          always have to chuckle about the v catching competition here ^^
          I didn’t even know what it meant until I once asked you guys about i xD if it wasn’t this early for me I might try to compete one day 😀

          • It IS very early for me each time. You can do it! 😉

          • bronakopdin

            I know, we’re in the same timezone xD (Germany)

            but I’m happy to be able and sleep in at least on saturdays (sometimes) and sundays! after all I hardly ever get to sleep before 2am… so getting up at 6 or even 5 is just not possible for me at least now T__T

        • Yes, three more! ^_^

  • stickfigurefairytales

    Now kiss!

    • DonnaC

      That is what several people were thinking.

    • Yup, jinx!!

    • LOL.. I was SO close to writing that too, but since there was a dying brother back there, it wasn’t the time right now.. sadly.

  • Now kiss!!

    • stickfigurefairytales

      Hahaha, jinx!

    • Tyler Griffin

      *sword fighting on Deck*
      “You may kiss…”
      *More sword fighting on deck*
      “You may kiss…”
      *More sword fighting on deck*
      “Just Kiss!!!”

  • davefragments

    Hey, he came out of it without even being dunked.

    • stickfigurefairytales

      To be fair, gazing into Mitch’s face in the moonlight would have a big effect on a lot of people.

      • Doki is not immune

      • D. G.

        Hey sticky.

        • stickfigurefairytales

          Hi D. G.!

    • LOL.. several of us really do think alike on this page.

      • davefragments

        I know. That river is such an inviting visual temptation for someone to end up in it.

    • Kate G

      Well, that was a lot of G’s being thrown on his body so yea?

      But we could always blame Mitch’s beautiful face for snapping him out, right?

      • Klaus

        Am quite convinced that Mitch’ powers cancesl out those G’s. As for the boom, they would not have heard it. At least not until Mitch slows down and lets it catch up with them.

      • davefragments

        His blue eyes…

  • Michael

    Well that was not quite as dramatic as I was expecting.

    Hooray and all, but… just, blink and snap out of it?

    • Madock345

      My thought is that once everything was out of TK range, his power couldn’t do anything, so it stopped dominating his mind, he couldn’t distract himself with it anymore.

      • D. G.

        Seems to me that his tk would have just transferred 2 the water. Must have been the boom.

  • Cydney Sabin

    Kiss… kiss… kiss…

  • Mitch didn’t even have to dip him in the harbour – and he has such a liking for dropping people in water 😉

  • TwilightDreamer

    yay! go Mitch 😀
    aww, love that large, middle panel, so well done.

    • Michael

      The cloud effects and the glow of the moon are gorgeous.

      • TwilightDreamer

        absolutely 😀 the detail is brilliant.

  • jreed3842

    This a super cute page!
    And I’m still in suspense! I really want Diego to pull through this!

  • I just love Mitch’s very rational, and yet stil.. youthful, way to behave on this page. No time to waste. There’s other people to save.

    Good thing Cory didn’t look down before being flung back again. I wonder if his stomach will be up in his throat, or if Mitch’s powers make Mitch not feel the speed. Something close to mach speed one way, and a minute later back the other way.

    I’d lose my stomach content for sure xD

  • DonnaC

    Now I have Van Morrison’s song ‘Moondance’ playing in my head.

  • davefragments

    We might have taken the “kiss” thing to the absurd,
    HOWEVER, taking “kissy, kissy” to the absurd,
    There’s a Justin Bieber concert in LA tonight.
    Can’t you just hear all those squeals of “kiss me, kiss me.”

  • *Eyes the gorgeous moon* I’m suspicious. That moon could be an undercover spy for George. Who knows what tales it could tell.

    *Has a silly moment, being tired*

    • Kate G

      OR OR maybe it’s another spying device for Kyle’s dad. O.o Nothing is safe anymore.

      • That’s kinda what I meant too. I think George is a 3rd eye of Laampros.

        • davefragments

          He’s like Huginn and Muninn for Wotan.

    • davefragments

      La Bella Luna

    • Klaus

      Du gamle måne, der var ingen der så det.
      Du gamle måne, så kun du kan forstå det.

  • Kate G

    Sha-la-la-la-la-la
    You got the mood prepared
    Go on and….kiss the guy (whoa whoa)
    Sha-la-la-la-la-la
    Don’t stop now
    Don’t try to hide it how
    You want to kiss the guy!

    COME ON!!!!!!! You are thisclose! JUST KISS HIM! Am I the only one who leaned in when you saw the middle panel going, “Yes! Yes! KISS HIM!” and were totally bummed when Mitch didn’t?

    Booooooooooooooooooo. I was so hopeful. *sniff*

    • Tyler Griffin

      I would be Scuttle flopping around making horrible squawking noises, but trying my best.

    • Toli Bera

      Now’s your moment

      Floating ‘bove a blue lagoon

      Boy, you better do it soon

      No time will be better

      he won’t say a word

      And he won’t say a word

      Until you kiss the guy

      • Kate G

        You’ve got to kiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiss the guuuuuuuy.

        Oh God, we are perfectly horrible people. XD

  • Sapfo

    Dont know how to tell you Alex. Duncan will never be safe for work. He is pure sex when he dresses in a suite 🙂

    As for this page, it is now a race to save Diegos life. Run, flyboy ru…. I mean fly

    • Adam Black

      @dokidokibaka:disqus and @stickfigurefairytales:disqus knocked you off top commenters
      .
      Now you are just Alumni like me

      • Sapfo

        I know -_-

      • Sapfo has also been knocked to 3rd in the amount of TYP Vs

      • stickfigurefairytales

        WE ARE LEGION!!!

    • Adam Black

      Do you think he has a latex Tuxedo?

      • Sapfo

        For you? I think he would put one on if you got it for him. He is very giving that way

  • fujoshifanatic

    Yes, panel four is my very favorite on this page as well. Under different circumstances, that would be the perfect setup for a lovely, romantic kiss, with “A Whole New World” playing in the background. Very nice.

    • LOL! Maybe a previous date between the two happened exactly that way. 😉 I’m more partial to Bella Notte, because of the moon and the whole puppy love I’m getting from them. x3

  • Panel 4 = love

    <3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3<3

    fujoshi mentioned "A Whole New World" but there is also "Bella Note" and that "When the moon hits your eyes" song that pop into my head

    • bronakopdin

      if you wanted to use Italian I think it should be “Bella Notte” with double t 🙂
      though I don’t know these songs, if it’s a title written that way, excuse me ^^’

      • I knew it didn’t look quite right, but with the cramps I couldn’t stay long enough to remember…I will fix it ^_^

        • bronakopdin

          cramps? Did you feel funny? I hope you’re alright!!

          • Monthly cramps -_- I extremely dislike being female at this time.

          • bronakopdin

            urgh… I’m one of the happy ones with not much troubles though you have my sympathies, I have a friend that rather wouldn’t even get out of bed with those >_>’

          • I have been spending a lot of time in bed, not ALL my time, but a lot

          • Kate G

            You wonder why I got an IUD, eh? I don’t worry about that at all anymore. MWA HA HA HA. No Aunt Flo and her evil minions Migraine, Back Pain and Cramps for me. *evil cackling*

            Man, that shit was the worst. I’m freeeeeeeeeeeeee!

        • bronakopdin

          correct me if I’m wrong but is it possible this song was used in Disney’s “Lady and the Tramp”?
          I totally loved that 😀

          • It was, but I like the “feel” of that version better.

          • bronakopdin

            which is mostly the case with originals 🙂

          • Yeah

  • Pssssssst Alex! Panel 4 = wallpaper? Please?

  • Klaus

    Panel four reminds me of what happened last time we saw the full moon.

  • Aitsuki

    Oh good, the city isn’t going to be sucked into a vortex of doom.

    • Tyler Griffin

      One city experiencing mass horribleness a day is Quite Enough in my life.

      • Klaus

        When it comes to horror, reality will always surpass fiction.

  • bronakopdin

    OK, not much time to talk, let’s get back to business, eh Mitch?
    Of course he’s right about that but still the setting and all this… talk about a “moment” that passed way too fast :/
    as many people said before panel 4 is just outstanding! So magnificently beautiful!

  • Nate

    I love the way Mitch talks to Cory. Calm, tender, but decisive.

    Still want cuddles, tho. Especially with RL the way it is right now.

  • Toli Bera

    and you don’t know why, but you’re dying to try, come on and kiss the guy….

    seriously your dead brother can wait. I er mean your living brother… of corpse he’s totally alive.

  • purplefoxglove

    I just love how Cory is totally not afraid hovering in the air like that – makes me think Mitch and him did some flying together before, and Cory has complete trust in Mitch.

    • Could be. I saw it more as Cory barely having time to register where he is, so he didn’t have time to getvscared. Would be nice if it was both 🙂

      • Derkins

        I’d say both, plus the fact that they’re above water, and not very high up. Less intimidating than say, soaring over a city, I assume.

    • Jason Wexler

      I thought Jean Grey when I thought that… he is a Telekentic so he can levitate himself, doesn’t need to fear falling.

  • Pikinanou

    Amazing page 😀

  • Ninhursag

    3rd panel: I know things are tense and stuff, but damn, that’s one romantic pose <3

  • Wayne Lunkwitz

    This whole page was awesome…..loved the sonic boom last time too!

  • Abyssdoor
  • D. G.

    So sad things went bad for Mitch in his solo effort. Glad he survived the debris storm.

  • Oh! I hope they make it back in time to get his brother! There was so much debris flying, and how much blood has he lost during this entire fiasco? I hope they don’t make it right at the last minute. *bites nails*

    • stickfigurefairytales

      It looked to me that where Cory was standing (and where his brother was collapsed) was like the eye of the debris hurricane, so I am hopeful that he wasn’t struck by any of the debris (provided none fell on him after Mitch pulled Cory out of there…)

      • Klaus

        And if that trigger happy gunman got in the way of a fork lift, the loss would be bearable.

  • Jason Moon

    “You’ll Believe a Man Can Fly.”

  • stickfigurefairytales

    I am very relieved to report that my French friend on tumblr that I was worried about is fine – she does not live in Paris so she was not in any danger from the attacks.

    • Klaus

      Not all those who died in Paris lived there.

      • stickfigurefairytales

        Okay, that is a good point, but she was also not *in* Paris when the attacks happened, which was what I meant to convey.

        • D. G.

          I’m glad ur friend is OK.

          • stickfigurefairytales

            Thank you very much – I am too..

          • D. G.

            Ur welcome.

    • Klaus

      Not all those who died in Paris lived there.

  • Kate G

    Let’s attempt to do the biggest Disqus singalong. Well, not really “singalong.”

    I know ALL of us have a “love” song that we’d put to Panel 4. YOUR JOB (if you choose to accept) is to keep the song that the other one starts. Try to do as much of it from memory as possible. If it’s finished….start the next song but please type out the title first! Of course, you can change the pronoun “her” to “him” if you want. So, who wants to join this nonsense? (I have a feeling there is going to be a lot of Disney.)

    LET’S GET STARTED. I’ll go first. My original one was “Kiss the Girl” and changed it to “Kiss the Guy” because it’s two guys. C: I’m starting out where Sebastian actually sings.

    There you see him
    Sitting across the way
    He doesn’t have a lot to say
    But there’s something about him
    And you don’t know why, but you’re dying to try,
    You wanna kiss the guy

    Yes, you want him
    Look at him, you know you do
    Possible he want you too
    There’s only one way to ask him
    It don’t take a word, not a single word,
    You got to kiss the guy

    Now sing with me!

    • Klaus

      Klaus. Pleased to meet you.

    • Bless you!… Oh, you didn’t sneeze 😉

      • D. G.

        Ha.

    • davefragments

      (ARE-kay-OR-nith-oh-MIME-us)

    • Why anyone would name a dinosaur that is beyond me.

      • ….to annoy everyone else

      • davefragments

        They mispronounce it so badly in the movie that I had to look it up to see the proper pronunciation. The bones were found in China and I suspect that they can pronounce that perfectly. It’s a weird combination of Greek and Latin.

        • Movies always get it wrong.

          • davefragments

            I think it was deliberate lies because they wanted to set up the next movie — military dinosaurs get loose and threaten an entire city… Just a thought.

          • Blarf! I hope not.

          • davefragments

            I’m with you.
            That is such a cheesy plot.

    • stickfigurefairytales

      I’m all for dinosaurs, but may I ask what prompted this?

      • davefragments

        You may know this as the “Indominus Rex” fro Jurassic World.

        • stickfigurefairytales

          I thought they genetically engineered that dinosaur and that it wasn’t one that had actually existed.

          • davefragments

            I wouldn’t trust anything that B.D. Wong says (as the geneticist) to anyone else. That entire laboratory lied to the rest of the world. They were bought off and bribed and subverted (etc…) by Vincent D’Onofrio.

  • Ruben

    When is the main story continuing?

    • As soon as this interlude extra is finished.

  • Hello everybody!!

    • You sound chipper today.

      • Well it is page day!!

        • jreed3842

          Yes! How can you NOT be chipper on page day?
          …. Actually how can you NOT be chipper when “The Young Protectors” exists?!

          • Ha! Well I try to be chipper for page day.

          • being a female that still has to deal with PMS…and NO chocolate

          • Saxon_Brenton

            At camping there is unlimited virtual chocolate (white, milk, and dark) on the trestle tables… but I get the feeling that virtual is no substitute for the real life stuff.

          • unfortunately

          • Indeed unfortunately. I want chocolate.

          • stickfigurefairytales

            *hugs Doki*

          • *hugs*

    • jreed3842

      Hello, AJ! How are you today?

      • Trying to stay warm. Granted we’re not that cold (the high today was 60f and it’s 50f now), but my feet are cold dammit!

        • jreed3842

          *gives you wonderfully warm house slippers*
          I hope that helps.

          • Oooh! Yes, yes it does. I keep meaning to get me some.

    • Saxon_Brenton

      Gleepings

      • Good afternoon! (It is about noon there, yes? Or am I off in my math?)

        • Saxon_Brenton

          Early afternoon. Lovely sunny day. (Perhaps a bit too hot when you go outside away from the air conditioning)

          • I’ll exchange some of the cold weather for some of your warm and then we should have something nice and temperate!

    • stickfigurefairytales

      Hi AJ!!

      • Hiya Sticky!!

        • stickfigurefairytales

          How is your evening going?

          • Well my feet are getting less cold.

          • stickfigurefairytales

            That’s a positive trend!

          • Yes, yes it is.

    • davefragments

      Hi, How’s it going tonight?

      • All full and toasty! How about you?

        • davefragments

          Just made it in bed and pulled the covers on.
          Turns out it’s 57 Deg F. Which is ridiculous for November 17th.

          • Is that warm or cold? It’s 48.5 F here.

          • davefragments

            Yesterday it was 32 deg F and 55 as a high.
            Today that’s the low and tomorrow the high temperature will be 67. Considering that most Novembers it snows and I take my car for snow tires. This weather is odd.

          • It’s been so freaking weird the weather this year. It’s been up and down, cool when it should be warm, warm when it’s supposed to be cool.

          • davefragments

            Yes, I think it is the El Nino but I am not sure.

          • That could be it. We did have some rain the other day. It’s supposed to be in the 70’s the next several days then back to the cold and colder

    • Michael

      Hi, AJ!

  • timemonkey

    Hello, I hate to bring this up again, but I’m still having Patreon problems (I talked to them and they said they didn’t know how to help) and while it’s no big to just check out the updates here and there I’m not recieiving the special content I’m paying for (for example the NSFW Kyle card).

    • Alex usually sends the link out for that in special Patreon emails. Or is that the issue, you’re not getting the emails?

      • timemonkey

        That’s the problem. No e-mails. They say I’ve blocked it somehow but I’ve checked my settings, I’ve inputted them specifically in the safe to receive section but it changes nothing. They don’t know what else to do. So while I can check the patreon site for most content I miss out on any of the special e-mails.

        • Hey timemonkey,

          Sorry to hear that you’re still having trouble. Have you tried using a different email account to see if that solves the problem? (In that case, you’d at least know it was an email problem and not a Patreon problem.)

          Once you’ve tried that, please email me directing using the Patreon Messages feature, 1) to let me know if it worked so I can resend you the Kyle pin-up and 2) if it doesn’t, so I can see if there are any issues with your account that I can see. And if we still haven’t gotten it fixed, I’ll escalate it with my account person at Patreon.

          One way or another, we’ll figure it out. 🙂

          Alex

          • timemonkey

            Okay, I changed the e-mail for my account. So I guess we’ll see if it worked tonight.

          • stickfigurefairytales

            Fingers crossed for you!

          • timemonkey

            It worked, high fives!

          • stickfigurefairytales

            Hooray!!

          • timemonkey

            And it definitely worked!

          • Yay! Please email me directly then now using the Patreon Message service and I’ll get you a copy of the Kyle reward. 🙂

            Thank you very much for being a Patron!

  • stickfigurefairytales

    My sports team did not win at sports today. They did not get the ball into the thing that gives you the points enough. The other sports team did it more.

    • They were not properly motivated to get the ball into the thing?

      • stickfigurefairytales

        Perhaps I did not yell enough sports cheers at them through the tv.

        • Did you yell loud enough to annoy the neighbors?

          • stickfigurefairytales

            Well, definitely loud enough to be heard upstairs. Probably not loud enough for the neighbors to hear since it’s no longer warm enough to have windows open.

          • Appropriate sports paraphernalia was worn?

          • stickfigurefairytales

            That must have been my mistake! I will try to wear the sports clothes next time.

        • Did you eat all the proper food that one eats when they watch the sports?

          • stickfigurefairytales

            Hmm, I don’t think so. I was just eating normal dinner.

          • Hmmmm. those foods could have special powers for the sports performing the sports.

          • stickfigurefairytales

            Good idea. I will have to try it.

          • That and it’s a good reason to eat the foods for the sports.

          • stickfigurefairytales

            I don’t know if this sport has as much traditional foods as other sports, though.

          • I suppose you could start a tradition for the sport?

          • stickfigurefairytales

            Ooh, sports chocolate! And sports pudding!

          • stickfigurefairytales

            And sports cupcakes!

          • Oooh sports cupcakes and sports pudding. Oh!! Sports pudding cupcakes!!

          • stickfigurefairytales

            BRILLIANT!!

          • The best of both worlds!

    • Boo!! The sports team must try harder at the sports so they can win at the sports.

  • Jeldenil

    The storm is keeping me up and I need to accompany my son to the hospital in the morning. Damn you, storm.

    • stickfigurefairytales

      Oh no! I hope it lets you get some sleep soon.

    • I will take the storm, send it to me please! *makes grabby hands*

      Going to the hospital sucks.

  • davefragments

    One of the big school districts near to me (not mine) has gone on strike because the negotiations have gone bad. I’m not taking sides.
    The interesting Item on the news was that people opposed to the teacher are no throwing dead animals (roadkill) at the picket line.
    I really just don’t understand it.

      • and because Disqus is weird now, I can only take an educated guess at which one it was

        • davefragments

          Disqus was non-existent for me earlier, about 2 hours ago.

    Is it possible to have a set of forward and backward buttons on the top of the comic as well as the bottom? I only ask because sometimes I can’t check the comic every time it updates, and scrolling down spoils the page. I don’t know about anyone else but I can’t not read what is on the page, no matter how fast I scroll I can still read it. Even when I don’t want to.

    • Howdy Nita!

      I tried that, but it felt a bit messy to me. But you actually don’t have to use the buttons at all—you can actually just use the right and left arrow keys on your keyboard! (You can read more about that in the FAQ:

      http://webcomics.yaoi911.com/faq/

      )

      Also, you can use the Archive page as your start page for the comic, and there are no spoilers there at all.

      Hope this helps!
