The Young Protectors: Legendary Chapter One—Page 1

184 Comments on The Young Protectors: Legendary Chapter One—Page 1

“Thank you” for what? What???

Over on the Patreon page, we added another 25 new Patrons in the last few days, tipping us up to $6,175/month in support, a number we haven’t seen since last October! Thank you all so much!

So, in celebration of that (and our new sexy arc!), I’ve just posted the most cracktastic NSFW image I’ve ever commissioned. It’s a painting by Sean Platter, and since we’re about to launch a sexy comic featuring Spooky Jones (“Legendary”), I figured it was the perfect time to take advantage of his mad skills with sexy demons!

And not just any demon—nope, it’s Kyle’s Dad, Laampros! Oh, and Spooky is fighting him! And, um, not taking any chances and using his magic against the big, bad King of Hell in a way that’s likely to get the monster’s full attention!

This is about as nutty a NSFW image as I’ve created so far, but I kinda love it. And I can’t wait to hear what the Patrons think about it!

Here’s a sneak preview, but the full image is where the fun is:

$5+ Patrons can download the full (and fully nude! and fully cracktastic!) pin-up immediately. And $10+ Patrons will be sent a high-res version with over double the resolution on the 10th of September!

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! Kyle’s in Spooky’s bedroom! And thanking him for… something!! What’s going on here? And where is this new arc going to go?

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

  • Adam Black

    yo

    • Congrats Adam! ^_^ I think it is safe to say you have this page’s V. ^_^

    • First comment on the first page of the first chapter of a new arc… That’s something!

  • Justin

    It’s up =D

    • Justin

      Now that I’ve had the night to think about it, I hope this isn’t a slow strip tease; we’ve already seen shirtless under the sheet, skin on skin cuddling in the truth or dare flashbacks

  • Madock345

    This style is adorable!

  • Awwwww! This is cute! So is Fuzzy Wuzzy Not a Bear back in a bottle? ^_^

    • Curt Clark

      If Amanda found out that Spooky kept him, he’d probably be dead and Kyle would have to find yet ANOTHER fireproof fella. :p

      • “But he came in handy the last time I used him!”

    • davefragments

      Only if Spooky is bad enough

  • Madock345

    (I’m actually really surprised it’s not a cover page)

    • Wayne Lunkwitz

      As Alex mentioned…..there were some things to work out……this could be one of them.

  • Aww, Spooky hasn’t even named Fluffy. Good thing we have then 😉

  • unknownlight927

    Here we go!! I have never been more excited and nervous about a story arc before. This is going to be a loooong couple of months, but totally worth it!! 🙂

  • So I guess Kyle asked Spooky to test run the not burning his partner during “fun times” before trying with Sameer who wouldn’t have any type of protection from fiery death?

    • Wayne Lunkwitz

      Isn’t that what he is supposed to be in better control of? Causing massive flaming partners?

      • Wouldn’t you want to have a test run just to make absolutely sure before possibly endangering someone?

        • Madock345

          Wonder if he’s tried any solo rides since then. He told Duncan he hadn’t even done anything by himself since the accident.

          • He may be confident in his control now, but that is still a pretty big trauma to get over.

  • Michael

    Flashback to the Truth of Dare bonus, when Amanda was imagining Spooky being the “patient teacher” in a class about how to be an awesome kisser… only this time, Kyle is the student instead of Mitch.

    Welcome back Julie!

    • Bei Dawei

      Come on, this isn’t what it looks like. Spooky is looking forward to telling Kyle’s fortune. Maybe what they’ll be doing on the bed is looking at Tarot cards. Or maybe Spooky has to give him a mystic check-up, just to make sure there are no demons hiding up his butt.

      Or since Kyle is taking off his shoes, maybe they’re Bokononists getting ready to practice boko-maru. Or kill cockroaches. Or put on sweaters, feed the fish, and ride the trolley into a magic kingdom of puppets. (“Mr. Rogers” children’s show reference, you foreigners.)

      • Michael

        Suuuure, he has to check for demons hiding up Kyle’s butt. Gotta reach right up in there and feel around, Rhythmically.

  • Wayne Lunkwitz

    I don’t know whether to laugh or not…….this just strikes me as funny!

    • Madock345

      Kyle just casually taking his shoes off is what does it for me. And with such goofy expressions XD

      • davefragments

        There’s no reason to rush into it.

  • Curt Clark

    Their chemistry is terrific and I feel like this is SO overdue, even without the imminent nakedtimes and confirmed launching of my ship. ^_^

  • *thinks of Kyle’s first meeting with Duncan where he went for gay bar first*
    *same with 2nd (planned) date with Duncan*
    *same with date with Sameer*
    *looks at this page*

    While the colors suits him, and he looks nice, Kyle seems to almost have a ‘uniform’ for casual wear too when he’s ‘going out’. Spooky always dress the same, but anything involving dates so do Kyle.
    Maybe someone should take him shopping for a 2nd set of date-clothes ;D

    • Wayne Lunkwitz

      Totally agree…….eventually something has to end up in the wash on wash day.

      • davefragments

        I have a friend who does laundry at my house ever so often. It’s ONE load of everything that’s dirty. No separating. I don’t look because it’s so revoltingly wrong.

        • Madock345

          Wait, separating what?

          • davefragments

            undies, socks and jocks from jeans and towels and multicolored t-shirts

          • Madock345

            Is that a thing I’m supposed to be doing? Are the materials that different?

          • davefragments

            Yikes

          • DonnaC

            I never buy anything white. So I don’t have to separate much. But i do the towels separately to avoid the fluff.

          • Wait, I’ve been doing it wrong all this time?
            I just sort white/light and colors and/or black. Towels are sometimes done alone or with bedwear, but if I only got a few towels I still just stick to color sorting.

          • davefragments

            I have lots of little white towels for personal use and I am awful on small white dish towels. So I can do one big load of white a week. I send shirts to dry cleaning. I consider socks as toxic waste.

          • That’s basically how I do it too.

        • Bei Dawei

          Well, it depends on if the water is hot or cold.

          • davefragments

            I never use hot because when I was a kid, my Mother used to wash underwear in hot water. I grew up with tight, tight, tight tight-whities. Hated it.

    • Spooky, Mitch, and Kyle.

      Mitch – So Kyle what are you planning to wear for your second date with Sameer?

      Kyle – Pretty much the same thing I wore for the first?

      Mitch and Spooky look at each other and share a look.

      Mitch and Spooky kidnap Kyle and take him on a shopping trip.

      Mitch while Spooky is picking out tight jeans – Just think of it as late birthday present. You have no choice in this. We are doing this for your own good, Trust us.

      • *lol*

        Yeah, he can’t keep this up if he has more than one date with someone. He got fancy suited up by PP on first dinner with Duncan, so got around on it there, but dude will need something for dating, unless he’ll be going through a string of first dates only.

      • lol– now I wanna draw this scene!

    • He might only have a couple of outfits.

      • Why he need to go shopping.

      • Madock345

        All my clothes fit in one wash. I’ve got two pairs of jeans, one pair of basketball shorts, six shirts, and about a dozen pairs of socks and underwear.

        ¯_(ツ)_/¯ works for me

    • Michael

      Don’t most people have a standard ‘look’? I buy my clothes in multiples when I find something I like, so I have at least two of every shirt. Some colours, more. I have three dark red/maroon polo shirts that I cycle through, three dark blue, and one black. And I pair them with either of two identical pairs of black cargo pants.

      • My younger sister will not let me get away with that. -_-

      • For every-day jeans I buy the same each time when/if I can. Finally found a specific brand where one of their jeans styles just fit me well (being a curvy woman that can be a helluva search since I can’t even count on fitting same size within styles from same brand). For shirts the closest I come to the same is sometimes buying two colors of the same shirt, especially if generic shirts. Otherwise I just go for the same colors and styles I like.

        For womens wear I think it’s more noticable if you just wear the same in different colors all the time. If it’s specific work standards that it one thing, but for casual and/or party/date clothes you kinda ‘have’ to change up.

      • Kate G

        Um, I must no fit this standard look. I don’t have multiples of anything, except my jeans because those are like the only damn things that fit me. I have one black and one dark wash. But, really, you will generally find t-shirts, shorts of various lengths, workout pants, one pair of sweatpants (only to be worn INSIDE unless I’m, like, sick as a dog), dresses of all lengths, sleeve types and various stages of poof (I like poof), and then I have my breeches and horse shirts and very tailored horse jackets and all forms of shirts….I don’t like “uniform.”

        Except in winter. I definitely have a winter outfit because I don’t have much choice. Thick tights under my skinny jeans with socks over that plus slippers if I’m in the house (standard winter boots from Dover Saddlery if I’m outside.) On top I have my silk undershirt plus long sleeve cotton shirt (has to be cotton) plus cotton long sleeve sweater plus fingerless gloves for around the house because my dad insists on keeping the house cold (aka 70 degrees Fahrenheit. TOO COLD.) Usually a blanket on my lap if I’m at the computer. If I’m going outside, you can add a scarf, hat, my puffy jacket and take off the fingerless gloves and add gloves meant to keep my hands warm to -10 degrees (also from Dover Saddlery.)

        I. Don’t. Like. Being. Cold. I’d rather be hot than cold. LOL.

  • Bei Dawei

    Hey, it’s Spooky with Archie Andrews!

  • Spooky needs a plant or two, though he may not be home enough for it to survive. Then again, he has a bed and books. Even a chair. The most necessary things for a bedroom. Must not leave out books *lol*

    • Madock345

      Yeah, figure he would need a magic garden or something to brew all those potions he carries around. I wonder where he gets his supplies? Certainly not from other mages…

  • I believe they’re going all the way. If not now then later but I think now 🙂

    • De’y

      I really hope so.

      • Alex has already announced that there will be weiners showing in this comic (on Patreon while the covered up version will be shown here).

  • Shoot, shoot, shoot. I forgot it was Friday and the start of Legendary. For some reason the days have gotten away from me this week. Plus the Defenders was released today and got sucked into watching a couple of those eps.

    Sooooo, Kyle in Spooky’s bedroom huh? Taking off his shoes? And Spooky’s WINKING!! O.O Boys, what are you up to?

    • Madock345

      I’m waiting for this to be a huge fakeout after Adam got us hyped up with all his talk about how sexy it was going to be. They’ll have sex… in like 10 pages after doing something totally unrelated first XD

      • Well, of course!!

        • Pietro7

          I thought that went without saying, LOL. But this conversation intrigues me. Hmmmmmmm……

  • davefragments

    I doubt that Spooky has a sense of fashion or of decorating a room.

    • Michael

      Oy, Spooky is very fashionable. The backwards cap and trenchcoat look is a timeless classic.

  • TwilightDreamer

    Wahoo! New page, and new story :)…well, arc.

  • Fabulous Alien

    For some reason this page has me a little nervous???

    But Spooky’s expression in panel 1 and Kyle’s in panel 3 are adorable…

  • Nate

    What does that mean? Glomping, often naked. 😉

  • Zephyr10101

    New arc? omg and new artist?

    • Yes, a new arc, and Julie is back as a guest artist on the first chapter of Legendary while Adam is taking a well deserved break. Julie also made the art of the Truth or Dare + the Interlude 2 bonus comic.
      Alex wrote about it in the page comment on the last Coda page http://webcomics.yaoi911.com/typ/ete-coda-page-16/

  • Kate G

    I had to blink as I looked at the page because this was most definitely not Adam’s lines, then I had to remember Adam was on vacation and Julie from “Truth or Dare” was taking over for a couple of weeks. Between family drama, house drama and my horse not behaving today, I had completely forgotten.

    It always takes me a week or two to adjust to a new colorist or line artist so I’m kind of in the zone that says, “This is too weird. I don’t like this. I DON’T LIKE IT!!! I DON’T LIKE IT! WHAT HAPPENED TO MY COMIC?!” so I’m going to be honest and say I’m approaching the new style with trepidation. My rational side realizes it’s only for a few weeks, but the autistic (way irrational) part is having a temper tantrum. I’ll calm down…I just need a few days. It’s just…new. I don’t like…new. New is difficult to the autistic. I need a minute.

    • bronakopdin

      maybe it’ll help if you re-read the Truth or Dare chapter to re-adjust? 🙂

      • And the Interlude 2 mini bonus comic.

      • Kate G

        I’m more adjusted to it. I just needed to calm down and come back to it.
        If you ever got to know me in real life, that’s just me. Change bothers me. I cried for two weeks when I had to change horses. HA HA HA. I couldn’t understand that Scooby was too aggressive and I had become too good for him (I still miss that horse.) I still groan over the horse I ride because he’s a hot-headed brat.

    • NoiseShaper

      Take your time.

      It’s the same characters (in Alex’ writing) with the same colouring (Vero’s), just seen through different pair of eyes for a bit (Julie’s), as in Truth or Dare earlier.

      • Kate G

        Or I know Veronica and Alex are still there, it’s hard to explain if you don’t exactly live or are an autistic. Most of the time. I’m actually very conscious of it because I moved 10 times before I was 11. I know I do not adapt well to change. The best way I can explain it – and excuse me for blatantly stealing quotes from What About Bob? here – is when I first encounter change I basically think, “Baby step to the elevator. I’m in the elevator.” :elevator door closes: :screams: Stick around a bit and you’ll see me change my tune to a more, “I’m a sailor! I’m a sailor! I sail!” tune.

        It just takes time for me to warm up. I’m the same way in life; I’m incredibly reserved and more likely to observe when I first meet you, but once I warm up to you and/or the situation…I have the gift of gab.

  • Saxon_Brenton

    Well, I’m not sure what double entendre Spooky is fishing for, but I’m guessing that Kyle means: “Since you’re the only magic user who isn’t insane and/or evil, you have a crap ton of responsibilities for dealing with supernatural weirdness. Including forwarding references for things that by rights other superheroes could probably handle themselves, if they put the effort into it.”

  • CecilDrumond

    Ui, a new page on my Birthday XD with Kyle and spooky :). A new artstyle? Nice. The old Style I like, this is nice too :).

    • Madock345

      Yeah. The usual artist is just taking a short break.

      I’m not sure about when this happens, but I think probably after Sameer since Kyle mentions that it’s been a long time since he has seen spooky.

      I think you’re doing very well in english. Definitely better than I would do if I tried to type in your language 🙂

      • CecilDrumond

        Ah, thank you. 🙂
        My german is better Xd.

    • Yes, chapter 1 on this story will be with Julie as guest artist. Chapter 2+3 will be back to Adam.

  • bronakopdin

    When I clicked my bookmark and it took me to the Engage the Enemy arc’s last page I was like what?! WHERE IS MY NEW PAGE?!?!? x’D
    Then I remembered the link was specialized for that arc and I had to switch arcs on the top of the page ^^
    Am also curious what Kyle is thanking Spooky for?! Let’s see where this goes and what Kyle thinks it means to be “Spooky Jones”
    😀

  • I AM SUPER STOKED!!
    This comic is gonna be great!!!

    • Also. I just adore Julie’s work!
      She does a great job with the characters we all know and love!

  • fujoshifanatic

    Oh man, I checked out Patreon, and I spit out my coffee and nearly fell back in my chair when I clicked on the full image of Laampros and Spooky in battle! That was certainly…something! As fun as that was, I am really hyped for this new arc!

    My major takeaways for this page:
    1) Spooky really needs an interior decorator! Maybe he can get Fluffy the Laser Bear stuffed and mounted in a corner?
    2) Julie’s art is as kawaii as ever!
    3) Kyle is entirely too far away in that lonely old chair. Looks like there’s plenty of room on Spooky’s bed for them to just “Netflix and chill,” you know?

    Now I’ve gotta go figure out how to reset my bookmark; awesome work, TYP crew!

    • Alex will give us a new direct link soon.

    • Klaus

      I thought you were going to say that he could get Fluffy to redecorate.

      • fujoshifanatic

        I would have, but I don’t think the back and forth between Fluffy and and Spooky ended so well for the bear. :-/

  • Eris, elder daughter of Nyx

    I’m in a different continent than normal, so I missed camping and the uploading of the comic! I’ll be here for over a week! Exciting to travel, but weird to miss things I’m used to taking for granted. I have trouble even figuring out what time it is back where I normally am.

  • I probably missed it somewhere, but what is the time relationship between Legendary and the date with Sameer? Is Kyle dating Sameer now? Is this before the date with Sameer?

    • NoiseShaper

      I’m pretty sure it’s before Kyle’s date with Sameer, and we should be finding out how this will lead into that…

      • Concerto

        I think it’s after, because the date with Sameer was right after he talked to duncan, and spooky, in that time, was looking for the lazer bear and in the panel 4 he say that he had dealed with it. ( I tried my best, I hope I haven’t made too much english errors )

    • Vaira

      I think it’s after. Kyle dated Sameer for a brief moment, but it was just a nice fling and nothing more. [for them both] Spooky got back and their relationship resumed.

  • Trisha

    OMG. I want naked Laampros. So bad.

  • Jason Moon

    Laser bear? What is that, Teddy Ruxpin meets Robocop?

    • davefragments

      Chapter 4 pages 33 thru 35 (and Fluffy, the “not a bear” bear that shoots fricken laser beams from its eyes. He keeps up the havoc until his final fate on chapter 4 page 45.
      Spooky must have been ordered by the Commander to find him and find him a nice home.

      {an aside: only Sharknado and Dr Evil have sharks that shoot fricken laser beams from their eyes}

      • Jason Moon

        Sharknado and Dr. Evil are not exactly august company. 🙂

        • davefragments

          I think so, too

        • Chris Dangerfield

          Well, when I saw an advert for SHARKNADO 5…

          • davefragments

            SyFy Channel once screened a movie about an Alien-Possessed Wooly Mammoth that had been brought to life by a divorced scientist who was trying to find love in a small town. Sharknado 5 pales in the realm of illogic when faced with that plot.

          • Chris Dangerfield

            So few people know that Dfragments is a billionaire film mogul…. 🙂

          • davefragments

            Hah!

      • Jason Moon

        When I saw that bear I thought “Man, Smokey is a lot more intense in person.” 🙂

        • davefragments

          He gave Sircea a good time.
          Almost roasted Sircea’s silver bra and panties.

          {added: I’ll bet Sircea still gets the tingles over that encounter.}

  • purplefoxglove

    Happy birthday to you,
    happy birthday to you,
    happy birthday dear Legendary,
    happy birthday to you! 😀

    *cheers and throws confetti*

  • Coming up with that Most Current Page URL for “Legendary” was easier than I thought. Here it is:

    http://webcomics.yaoi911.com/?last_webcomic=webcomic3

    If you use this URL, it will magically transform into the most current page of “Legendary.” But because of this magic, you can’t just enter it into your URL bar and go to the page and THEN bookmark it, because all you’ll do is bookmark whatever page it sent you to. (And thus your bookmark won’t actually be for this special URL.)

    Here’s the secret: First you have to create a random bookmark in your browser (it can be for any page, or any site—it doesn’t matter, because you’re going to change it.) THEN you need to EDIT that bookmark and change its URL to that special URL above. From that moment forward, that bookmark should get you to the current page of “Legendary.”

    For folks who already have the “Most Current Page” bookmark for “Engaging the Enemy”, it’s even easier. Just edit that bookmark and change the “webcomic2” to “webcomic3”. Easy peasy. 🙂

    • Yay!!

    • Justin

      I thought all magic users go crazy eventually… Hope that link won’t ruin too many of us.

      • Pietro7

        We’re tough. We can take it. 🙂

  • Airboy Obsessed

    This art is adorable. Spooky and Kyle look so cute! The art style suits them, while at the same time being kinda reminiscent of Archie comics. Which isn’t a bad thing. Can’t wait to see more pages!

    • SleepingDragon

      It does feel very light and fun after Adam’s more realistic work (Kyle’s face in the 4th panel!) My only worry is that I’m not sure Spooky’s build translates well into this style, but I always thought Julie did a stellar job on ToD so I’m not *that* worried.

      • Madock345

        Her style does tend to slim everyone down, which just makes Spooky more adorably pudgy by comparison 😀

    • DinkyPuff

      I was thinking the same thing! I actually thought Spooky was talking to Archie.

  • Jim Philbrick

    Kyle sure does look different…. more child like…. hoping the young adult look returns

    • Madock345

      I like this style a lot. Kyle looks so cute here 🙂

    • Adam will be back for chapter 2+3 of this arc. He’s taking a well deserved break so returning guest artists, Julie Wright, is taking over for the first chapter of Legendary.

  • Shiny Gwilly

    i ADORE this art style, it’s just SO cute and so good
    it’ll take a bit for everyone to adjust to this, but i’m also looking forward to more of this art!
    but yes
    what are you two talking about here exactly, why is Kyle taking off his shoes, Spooky why is your room very sparse in decor, we need answers

  • Kate G

    Ha ha, I know many people just look at me when I say that and say, “You moved how many times?” Yes, my dad was active military for the first 10.5 years of my life. When I hear that people have never been out of their own town and their town has a population of, like, 3,000 people, I just get this face like o.o, “You’ve never gone out of your own town? WHAT?!” I can’t comprehend it. I call this the “bubble effect.” My mom and younger brother are perfectly content within their bubble as we’ve lived where we are a while. My dad and I have permanently itchy feet.

    • I had 4-5 addresses before I was five. Moving doesn’t bother me. I like the idea of going somewhere new.

      • Kate G

        I actually like going somewhere new…temporarily. As long as I come back to home base I’m fine. MOVING?! Hell no. I hate moving. Moving is stressful, big pain in the butt and no fun, especially when you have to get up before the crack of dawn, get into the van, and you have to go to the bathroom BEFORE your dad’s approved rest stop (my dad had our entire trip planned out from restaurants to the exact rest stops we would use. Awful memories) and your dad just looks in the rear view mirror and says, “We aren’t stopping for 30 more miles!” Then you have to cross your legs until your mom fixes my dad with a look that says, “You WILL stop at a gas station.” Dad grumbles under his breath because it isn’t an approved stop. You are in the car from dawn until dusk on the road. UGH.

        It was never fun moving. HA!

        • NoiseShaper

          Yeah, making complex plans for complex tasks is all fine and normally useful, but not having any flexibility in them is usually a recipe for trouble.

  • Amy Tombleson

    I’m so excited to see what happens in this new comic!!!

  • Josy

    Is the art style gonna stay like this or is it gonna change back to the normal one?

    • NoiseShaper

      It’s only for the first of three chapters while Adam takes a break, similarly how Julie already drew the Truth or Dare interlude before.

      • Josy

        thank god, and yeah, I didnt like those either.

        • I’d put it somewhat more politely, but I know what you mean – kinda putting me off to have a NSFW arc with an art style making the crew look several years younger. May take a few pages to be sure wether i can adapt.
          Of course Adam really earned his break.

          • DinkyPuff

            For me it’s not that everyone looks younger, it’s the fact Kyle looks like the star of Archie comics. Had not Spooky said his name, I would have thought he was someone else entirely.

  • NoiseShaper

    Those young ones nowadays – no restraint whatsoever!

  • davefragments

    It’s eclipse day (partial here). Have a good and safe eclipse.

    • also partial, I still have about an hour before 90% something coverage.

      • davefragments

        C-SPAN has the live NASA feed as the moon’s shadow crosses the USA.

          Here I am ……a day late……if I had thought about it , I could have gathered with the rest of the people in the town square or over at the football field here……but I opted for staying home…..front row seat and no screaming!

          • davefragments

            Ain’t nothing wrong with that.

            The news channels followed the shadow across the country. It was interesting to listen to the different people as the shadow passed.

    I am quite certain that what Spooky has just done for Kyle is not what we all hoped for. If it were, it would be wierd in the extreme for Kyle to express surprise that Spooky had been looking forward to it.

  • I didn’t have a total eclipse, but I did take some pictures. There was noticable darkening and significant temperature drop. ^_^ https://plus.google.com/u/0/photos/118082431292164101352/album/6456813839531754865/6456813842426252610?authkey=CMSRvbHAne-RdA

      A reporter for the Washington Post went to a farm for “fainting goats” and did an article about the myth that goats faint at “goatality” of the eclipse.

      https://www.washingtonpost.com/video/local/weather/how-will-animals-react-to-the-eclipse/2017/08/21/16eebc9a-8693-11e7-96a7-d178cf3524eb_video.html?utm_term=.2ffc649b8bd9

      It is a myth but it’s cute and fun.
      I was once butted and climb on by little goats looking for animal crackers.

    • I had a total eclipse back in 1999 here in Germany, which I actually watched with a fully costumed Klingon Captain i knew back than (sending love to S’qally) on the “mountain” that once was the main seat of the Staufer dynasty, of which emperor Friedrich Barbarossa may be the best nown (or maybe his son Heinrich IV who captured Richard Lionheart? could be more important to anglo-saxon readers).
      Anyway, that partial thing isn’t half as impressive as the total eclipse: you can actually see the core shadow racing towards you if you are in higher position, and when it hits you, the temperature drop gets an extra quality i had never experienced out in the open before or after. I’m not surprised that whole cultures panicked about those in ancient times

    • Wayne Lunkwitz

      Here (Nebraska……western part) ,I was out of the main path…..but put the “pup” in the house , for safety sake ……sat on the back deck with coffee and smokes…..and waited…..it got dark enough so all the street lights came on .

      • davefragments

        I had glasses and sat looking at the sun. It was fun.

        • Wayne Lunkwitz

          I used leftover slip – in’s from my last dialated eye exam…..figured that would be better than nothing.

          • davefragments

            I bought a pair of glasses and got 4 kids glasses as a mistake. I gave the other three away to a neighbor. Another neighbor told me that he used a digital welder’s mask.
            Even at the 90% level, there was no way I could even look up without having my eyes see spots after.

          • Wayne Lunkwitz

            I have what my optometrist calls “floaters” …..so I see spots sometimes , but mostly they show up as shadows in vision.

          • davefragments

            I got them. I got the start of cataracts. I’m myopic with astigmatism. And car headlights are tough to drive through. I sympathize with you.

          • Wayne Lunkwitz

            Thanks , Dave but it really isn’t that bad……was diagnosed with dry macular several years ago…..but a later check up showed that it has gone dormant

          • davefragments

            I hope it stays dormant for you.

          • Wayne Lunkwitz

            Me too…..had an Aunt who went through it over the course of several years…..eventually turned wet and caused her to lose over 90% of her sight by the time she passed away at 91.

          • NoiseShaper

            There’s a trick for driving beside opposing traffic when their headlights are irritating: Focus on the right border markings of your own track instead of looking straight ahead.

            That way the irritation hits only the side of your retina and the much more important focus area remains fully functional without being “burned out” for precious moments and you can still see clearly where you’re going.

            At least that helps me a lot when some idiots forget to turn down their headlights when they see me. I don’t know if it could help you, though.

          • davefragments

            My Dad gave me that advice when I was 16. It’s really good advice.
            The other piece of advice he had was “you can’t drive through another car.”

  • davefragments

    Hello Campers,
    Are we ready for the second page?

    • Saxon_Brenton

      Oh yes. I’m really interested to find out whether it’s Kyle’s bunions or foot fungus that Spooky want to use his healing powers on 😛

      • davefragments

        I’ve been wondering all day today if this has something to do with those bony spurs and horns that grew in the battle.

        • Saxon_Brenton

          Ongoing supernatural medical checkup for a really esoteric form of osteo problem? That hadn’t occurred to me, but it makes a type of sense.

          • davefragments

            lingering effects of his newly improved powers

          • Ulysses Paxton

            Could be the after effects of absorbing all that heat in the fire storm battle. Don’t super heroes have aches and pains from time to time?!?

          • davefragments

            Could be.
            I think that THE TICK is the only superhero that complains.

          • Pietro7

            I like it. 🙂

      • Wayne Lunkwitz

        After that first kiss……I wouldn’t think there would be any damage at all……maybe…..just Kyle wanting to try that again !

    • I’m here, but leaving camp again 🙁
      I’ll leave an be back in a short hour (normal alarm time). Woke up with a big headache, so will see if a pill and a short nap can take care of it. Have a big dentist appointment after work, so really need this to be gone.

      • davefragments

        I hope you feel better.

        • Pietro7

          Seconded. We want our Wolf to be healthy and happy. 🙂

    • Hello dave! Cannot wait! ^_^

  • Wayne Lunkwitz

    Made it before camping was over……..almost got lost on the way here!

    • davefragments

      Hi Wayne

      • Wayne Lunkwitz

        Hi Dave

        • Pietro7

          Glad you made it Wayne

          • Wayne Lunkwitz

            Thanks Pietro7

  • Wayne Lunkwitz

    LOL!……I know what Dave means 😛

  • Chris Dangerfield

    Spooky: “I needed to take care of the laser bear which involved some… back and forth–“

    Has got to be one of the funniest throw away lines ever. HA!

    • davefragments

      The bear rolled onto it’s back and demanded belly rubs and chocolates

      😉

      • Wayne Lunkwitz

        I have an over sized “puppy” that likes tummy rubs! She is demanding about it.

  • Page will be up shortly. 🙂

  • Jonni

    Happy camping, all

    Wow! I really like how you give us some panel about foot and socks. It’s my weakness 😀

    Hello campers!

  • Franklin Ignacio Meza

    You’re the best Alex!! I just started reading TYP like two days ago and I already caught up,this comic is amazing!!One question though,why do they look different,it’s not a bad different,but it’s also not a good different!Sorry,if it offends you,I’m just saying.

    • davefragments

      Alex explained in his write-up on the last page of “Engaging the Enemy”
      http://webcomics.yaoi911.com/typ/ete-coda-page-16/
      Adam DeKraker who usually does the line work for the page requested some time off. Julie Wright, who did the line work for the “Truth or Dare” chapter of “Engaging the Enemy” is drawing the line art for the first chapter of LEGENDARY. Adam will return after that.

  • Glad Dave was able to help out with your question. Thank you for your kind words, Franklin! 🙂

    • Franklin Ignacio Meza

      You’re Welcome!!:) 🙂
