Now Kyle, use your words

This has been a great month over at the Patreon Page! We’ve added over 40 new Patrons in September and we’re now just a little over $400 away from me being able to break even after paying my artists, rent, etc.! Y’all are awesome!

And, of course, I’m always looking for ways to show my gratitude to those who are able to support us in this way. So here were the special Patreon rewards for September:

(Click on the image for a full description.)

$5+ Patrons (even brand new ones!) can download all of these full-color pin-up immediately.

Also, as you know, for a variety of reasons, I don’t want to leave NSFW images up for too long on Patreon. So, I’ve started sunsetting some previously posted NSFW images by removing their links.

For August, this will be your last chance to download the Full Monty Tsunami pin-up by Marccus, which $5+ Patrons can find here. After October 10th, I’ll be removing the links to the NSFW art for that. Want to see what Tsunami looks like in his birthday suit? Now’s the time! 🙂

And $10+ Patrons will be sent a high-res version of all of these wallpapers (including the Full Monty Tsunami pin-up) with over double the resolution on October 10th!

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! Spooky asks Kyle “how far he wants to go tonight” and instead of opening Google Maps, Kyle opens Spooky’s pants! What does this mean??? Is Kyle trying to get at Spooky’s mobile phone? A hidden theodolite? Something else?

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


  • stickfigurefairytales

    Spooky is the best.

  • Madock345

    Panel 4 Spooky, looking into the camera like he’s on the Office and waggling his eyebrows at us.

    “Yeah, we’re going that far.”

    • Palpad100 .

      And we are not going to see all of it.

  • Well now

  • Madock345

    Hope they both remembered to wear clean undies

    • stickfigurefairytales

      Initial inspection of Spooky’s suggests that he did, at least.

    • unknownlight927

      Clean underwear or not, I think we can all agree they are very “dirty” boys!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

  • I love the look on Spooky’s face in panel 4.

    • Brian Hopkins

      Like, “Yep, I knew he’d respond this way.”

  • stickfigurefairytales

    Dat jawline in panel 2…just, dang!

    • stickfigurefairytales

      Spooky is just too gorgeous for words.

      • Wayne Lunkwitz

        Panel 4…….the sly grin…..OMG!

  • davefragments

    There is pleasure in taking time to enjoy and to press the flesh

    • Bei Dawei

      I bet some of you degenerates are pressing the flesh right now!

      • davefragments

        Not tonight. It’s just me, the computer and a good movie.

        • Bei Dawei

          That wouldn’t necessarily rule it out. I mean, if it’s your own flesh. (If you don’t mind making the angels cry, that is.)

  • Mary Klemzak

    That far, huh. We’ll need snacks and energy drinks. And sanitizer. And Lysol wipes. Lots and lots if Lysol.

    • Dartania

      Gah! Not lysol! You don’t want that anywear near your private bits. Hell, I don’t like it on my hands. Baby wipes, adult wipes, or feminine hygiene wipes is what they’d want. And for this pair, maybe a fire extinguisher.

      • Mary Klemzak

        Fair enough. Use the Lysol on surfaces. Baby wipes, on, ahem, other more sensitive areas.

        • davefragments

          plain soap and warm water always worked for me

          • Bei Dawei

            Holy water!

  • unknownlight927

    I have to say this going a lot farther then I could have imagined. And yet, every page ends with that “Ninja Robot” feeling. This story is amazing and surpassing all of my expectations, but I can’t help but feel like a victim in a horror movie trying to doge a serial killer. Every time I think I’m safe…. My nerves “thank you” Alex and Co!!! 🙂 🙂

    • It will go all the way, at least at some point.

      • unknownlight927

        I know you are right, though it doesn’t make turning the page anymore nerve wrecking! 🙂

    • You’re very welcome, unknownlight927! 🙂

      And you have nothing to be afraid of…….

      Unless you’re scared of ninja robots.

      • unknownlight927

        Ninja Robots: NO. Ninja Robot Clowns- MAYBE!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

  • Toli Bera

    hmmm, I don’t know what Kyle wants. I wish he would be more clear with his expressions of his thoughts and feelings. he’s such a subtle lad.

  • Sapfo

    I think Spooky magic away Kyle tongue, which is the only explanation for why Kyly now is not speaking. You dont belive me?…. LOOK OVER THERE! NINJA ROBOTS ATTACK!

  • Madock345

    “So, how far do you want to go tonight”

    “I want the penis”

    “Ok, but there’s some options and I think we should-”


  • Terrible terrible terrible thought. I mean terrrrrrrible. With a capital TERRIBLE.. Instead of ninja robots Dunkid escapes and is stalking Kyle.

    • Ulysses Paxton

      Now THAT is a truly TERRIBLE thought! YIKES! I hope Spooky has some of those magic potions stashed in the drawer of the night table at the head of the bed, just in case.

      • I’m sure he has warding and all sorts of things that would keep bad guys out. It was just one of those really bad no good terrible thoughts and I thought I should share. 🙂

        • Ulysses Paxton

          A magic — Do Not Disturb — sign, I’m sure. 😉

  • Oh, MY-Y-Y….

  • Klaus

    Don’t look at the camera,

  • So Spooky is a boxer’s guy. ^_^

  • Well, Kyle has seen him tenting in his undies plenty of times. Since the invitation is there, those undies are sooo coming off.

    Also, I’m starting to believe that Ninja Robot Attack may be secret code language for something else. In that case, I’m retracting my comment about sharpening my fork in case they show up 😉

  • Kyle knows what he wants. ^_^

  • Hey guys, have you seen the gorgeous title page for Legendary Chapter one?

    • That trading card art suddently got another good use 🙂

  • Bei Dawei

    I think Spooky’s breaking the fourth wall in panel 4.

    Next week: ninja robots leap out of his drawers.

    • Klaus

      Or maybe he is thinking: “What is keeping the ninja robots?”

  • A friend

    I just started humming the song “go all the way”

  • Morgan

    Gdi Spooky why are you so sexy?

  • Cman65

    All the way

  • Karol Chmielewski

    Spookiw the porn star looks at us “you want this don’t you” his face says yes Spooks I do 😀

  • Earl Patterson

    Oh you’re naughty Spooky!

    • Rara Avis

      Yes, the drawing style makes them look too young. This was brought up a few pages back. It is something that gay comics should be careful to avoid. We fight the negative stereotypes about gays being pedophiles enough in society, as it is. At least the body hair helps age them a little….the smooth faces could use some stubble or a goatee, etc.

      • Ansel

        Honestly, my first impression of the first page of this story, I thought it was going to be a story about something that happened when they were 15. Now that I’m used to it (and also yeah the body hair and stuff helps), I just see them as their canon ages because I know they are. Also because 18-20 year olds often (usually?) have baby faces anyway.

        • Rara Avis

          Your first impression was the same as many of us….they look like kids.

  • bronakopdin

    seems Kyle is getting more courage ^^
    so when will the Ninja Robots or Ghost Pirates smash in there for interruption? x’D

    • Wayne Lunkwitz

      Well with all the talk of bad guys breaking in when things are heating up…..Kyle might get upset….being upset and horny is never a good combination.

  • Nate

    I must confess to being of a divided mind.

    On the one hand, like Kyle, I am somewhat interested in what is at the end of that “treasure trail”. Sexy times are always fun, especially between two people who care about each other as much as the Hellbros do.

    On the other hand, some things are too good to rush, I mean, there’s a yummy chest RIGHT THERE just waiting for nibbles. There is no need to go “stampeding to the phallus”. 🙂

    Not that I plan on going anywhere, of course. But I’d love to see an “Extended Cut” of this scene some day. Nice and long… 😀

    • Palpad100 .

      I think the really good parts will only be available on Patreon.

      • Nate

        Yes, and I’m a Patron. But I don’t mean the naughtier stuff, so much as foreplay. I’m a softie (well, technically not SOFT) for touchy-feely-kissy naked stuff. 😀

        • Palpad100 .

          Hey I want Kyle and Spooky to kiss each others nipples as much as you.

      • Kate G

        It will be in the book as well.

  • John

    Did… Did spooky just low-key break the fourth wall?

    • Will Parkinson

      He’s got a videocamera going!

  • fujoshifanatic

    Fourth wall or no, Spooky is definitely breaking my nether regions with that playful, sexy look in panel 4! *gets ready to sit on and sumo-crush ANY ninja robots who try to bust in on this scene*

    • Michael

      That look made me instantly suspicious. Please, please PLEASE don’t turn out to be a shapeshifting “fan” secretly recording Kyle’s intimate moments to sell online to the highest bidder!

      • fujoshifanatic

        That would be quite the wacky plot twist, wouldn’t it? Although I don’t think it would go so well for that fan if Kyle figured it out and got all, er, heated about it, if you know what I mean. Shape-shifing does not necessarily mean flame-retardant, unless you change into an asbestos suit, maybe?

      • Wayne Lunkwitz

        Hmmm……..Didn’t “Someone”…..once record things that went on with “The Boys”?? Could this be what’s going on? Tune in next Saturday…..when Spooky says “Let’s toast some marshmallows…..I’m hungry!”……

  • Jason Moon

    Now let’s slip into something more comfortable: our birthday suits.

    Didn’t anyone teach these two that it’s rude to talk with your mouth full?

    • Klaus

      “Want to slip into something more comfortable? I’m very comfortable.”

      • HA!

      • Jason Moon

        Well they’re about to get more comfortable still(comfortablier?).

  • DId Spooky just break the fourth wall?

    • Kate G

      I think he just did. XD

  • Kyle, quite the fast learner.

    Guess most are if the topic really interest them and they have good teavchers 🙂

  • No! No Ninja attack robots! They will ruin the mood!

    • Curt Clark

      Nah, just postpone things. Once they’re dispatched, there’s that whole thrill-of-victory thing…and then the thrill-of-victory sex…so maybe a robot ninja attack wouldn’t suck too bad after all?

    • Embrace the ninja robot attack. 🙂

  • Ginger Envy

    Viking Ninja Pirate robots riding dionsaurs will attack

  • D. G.

    Wow. I’m liking this ship more than I thought I would. Nice work, Alex.

    • Thanks, DG! Glad to hear you’re enjoying this! 🙂

  • Jake McCoy

    *Ninja robots attack the wrong gay superhero couple* – “Sorry, we thought y’all were someone else.”

  • Justin White

    blush oh my

    • Madock345


  • Rara Avis

    Why is Spooky looking at the “camera?” Ok, at …us? Is this intentional, rather like the “Modern Family” trend of talking to the audience?

    • friendlymosquito

      Looks to me like he was trying to look at Kyle but got distracted by hand on pants and so is trying to put his eyes toward his pants without moving his head…

      • Rara Avis

        Perhaps, but his eyes seem aimed directly at the reader, not down at his pants…and his head is not angled toward Kyle or his pants, but us. No biggie. Anything goes in art, and if the artists/writer wants Spookie to break that fourth wall and look at us, that’s fine. I was just curious if it was intentional (it should be) or an accidental result of the artist’s drawing style. Others have commented on the occasional smile on the side of the face, etc.

        Regardless….I am enjoying the strip, as usual.

        • Klaus

          It’s like James winking at the viewers at the end of Dinner for One.

    • Jeff Baker

      LOL! Am watching that right now!

  • sometimes, yuh don’t need words, Bub

    sometimes, mouths can be used fer other purposes — yeah?


  • Kate G

    It would be just like Spooky for him to know we were reading this as he has been in other dimensions, has fought demons of all kinds and has magic skills (potions and lotions and Lordy knows what else) that is both cool and scary.

    Sorry for the extremely short comments lately. I’ve been in Box Hell (for those who have moved…you know this version of Hell. Not my favorite), plus my NFP called us a few days ago and said they had to send in finalizations for Special Olympics. They can delete but not add, and every coach (there’s 3 — Nick, Larry and Alex — and I’ve worked with all of them) agrees I should not do the English Equitation test (which is what my barn is known for) but the Dressage test (which we’ve NEVER entered as a barn.) I’d be probably the only one in this section so dear God, I have 4 weeks to learn two tests…with a new horse.

    MAYHEM HAS COME! – please insert your favorite AllState Mayhem commercial here please –

    • Good luck Kate!

      • Kate G

        Thanks! I do have the choice to not do the Dressage if I think I can’t do it, but I get the pattern tomorrow so we’ll see. (Kristi – the person who is in charge of all of the SO planning- SAYS I can do it in my sleep; we’ll see. As long as there’s none of those dreaded turn on the haunches, I’ll probably do it.)

        • davefragments

          Best of luck to you

          • Kate G


    • Pietro7

      You got this, Kate – have a wonderful time!

      • Kate G

        I just learned the Dressage pattern today. Someone send me extra Dr. Pepper and one of those horse stick toys…I’m gonna need it. SO complicated. – cries softly –

        Wait, I do have a horse stick toy. I can steal my nephew’s. T-REX! GIMME YOUR HORSE STICK! I NEEDS IT!

    • stickfigurefairytales

      Good luck! You can do it!

  • Ruben

    I like panel 4.

  • Deon

    The new art style will take some getting use to, but interesting story so far.

  • davefragments

    Hi Campers,
    I learned today that Douglas Adams, author of the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, wanted a name that sounded naughty but wasn’t naughty. So one of his characters was not called “Phartiphukborlz” as he first proposed but instead was named “Slartibartfast” at the request of the producers of the BBC Radio Drama.
    Today was a good day. How was your day?

    • Saxon_Brenton

      It’s been okay so far. Hoping for a bit of rain later in the afternoon.

      • davefragments

        Today was autumnal, the temp about 65F and a light shower right after dinner. Otherwise sunny. Next three days will be about the same sunny without rain.

        • Saxon_Brenton

          Whereas we’re supposed to in Spring, but it’s looking more and more like an early Summer. We’re ending a particularly warm and dry September, with fire bans across NSW being brought in several weeks earlier than the usual date for bushfire season.

          • davefragments

            It’s all hills and valleys and forest around me and this section of Western PA is wet.

          • I miss PA.

    • Doki didn’t wake up until after 8 pm. 3ish hours later still trying to wake up.

      • davefragments

        I think this page will wake you up.

      • stickfigurefairytales

        Poor Doki!

        • Hey stick! How are you enjoying your house?

          • stickfigurefairytales

            It’s good, thank you! Especially now that the heat wave here has finally broken. I now have a working upstairs sink and toilet, which is great.

            Still have to put in my new medicine cabinet, but my dad should be able to help me with that in a few days.

            My brother’s also going to be coming into town on Sunday evening, and I plan to put him to work helping me move bookshelves that need to be in a different place before I start filling them.

            How’s your weekend looking, Doki love?

          • Not sure, I might be able to get back to a normal sleeping schedule by the end of it maybe. Or at least closer… Grandmother hasn’t been having any problems during the night lately so I am trying to get back to sleeping during the night.

          • stickfigurefairytales

            Finger crossed for you!

          • ^_^

          • That is good to hear, Doki. Hopes for the best.

          • Thanks. ^_^

  • Camping time, and I’m SO excited for this page. It’s going to be a new step in this comic – even more so on Patreon 🙂

    I’m glad that Patreon isn’t gathering monthly payments until tomorrow, so I can still see this page uncensored on Patreon tonight. My payment had a glitch so won’t be on my account until monday or maybe tuesday (booh!!), so my Patreon withdraw will be bounced for a day or two.

    • Saxon_Brenton

      Ah yes. According to the announcements on Alex’s patreon page, the next page will be where the split between explicit and non-explicit material will begin. I guess we should take that as a not-so-subtle hint as to how far Kyle wants to take things.

      • When Kyle makes up his mind on something he goes for it. Those undies are coming off 🙂

      • Bei Dawei

        In the non-explicit version, they do Bible study together.

      • Oh, and will be interesting to see the difference in cropping of panels and such, in pages here and on Patreon, when there’s explicit scenes. Luckily for Alex most pages probably won’t need to be special made.

        • Just this one. Page 13 will be the only page where I commissioned two versions. For the other pages, I’ll be cropping where I can and extending the black gutters to create the more SFW versions here.

          • davefragments

            little pastel unicorns pharting rainbows would have been a teeny-tiny bit froo-froo

          • Bei Dawei

            Only the top donors get that version.

          • Wayne Lunkwitz

            When do the pink elephants arrive?

          • davefragments

            I have to consult Disney

          • That was a very interesting part of Dumbo. I know as a kid it was very disconcerting to me. Now I kind of like the song sometimes.

          • davefragments

            I read that someone in the USA is thinking of making a live action AKIRA and setting it in New York and using Japanese actors.

          • Huh. Unlike pretty much completely Americanizing Death Note?

          • davefragments

            I haven’t seen NETFLIX’s Death Note yet but I’m dreading that it will be all action without the mental horror of the manga. The real terror of the manga was Light trying to create a new society without crime. That’s my fear.
            I worry that some boob will think AKIRA isn’t exciting enough for American audiences and screw the plot.

          • davefragments

            #2 – I also read that it isn’t M.Night Shyamalan who was responsible for the abomination of “The Last Airbender.”
            I also haven’t seen the live-action “Ghost in the Shell” because it still costs money and I’m being cheap about raising cable costs any more than they are.

          • I remember seeing The Last Airbender in the theater and the guy that actually knew the show said “This is sh*t. I swear the cartoon is 10000% better. Please don’t let this abomination color your opinion about the show.” That is how Doki got addicted to the cartoon and broke her promise to only watch it with her s/o at the time.

          • davefragments

            The cartoon is great.

          • It is. I love Uncle Iroh and Zuku. And Toph. And Momo.

          • fujoshifanatic

            I think I would rather like that version, but I guess it would be too much work to line and color?

          • davefragments

            I picked pastel unicorns because I thought that was the silliest thing I could propose to tease Alex on the sly.

    • Morning Danish sweetie!

  • Bei Dawei

    SOON we will have an answer to the immortal question….Who farted?

    “You went to other dimensions?! What did you bring me?”

    • davefragments

      There was a horse race won by a horse named “Hoof Hearted”
      It’s an interesting call by the announcer:

      • Bei Dawei

        That is ten shades of brilliant.

      • Wayne Lunkwitz

        Wow! announcer needs to learn to space the words better!

        • davefragments

          That clip is famous.

  • Bei Dawei

    So what’s going to cover the naughty parts? Little black squares? Carefully-positioned houseplants? Cute smiley faces? Cartoony images of Duncan dressed as cupid? What?

  • I think I am going to keep Sai for a while.

    • stickfigurefairytales

      Very cute.

      • Chibi Sai makes an appearance in some Hikaru no Go anime episodes. ^_^ Though Akira and Hikaru are too adorable. Akira is my son. Akira is the one on the right. ^_^

        • Akira and Hikaru… it is just so hard to see them with anyone else. When I first came across the pairing (before I really got into the m/m pairing scene) I remember thinking… Yep, completely makes sense. Totally cannot see them with anyone else.

  • Morgan

    Evening everyone!!! How are we?

    • So ready for the next page, and yet so unprepared.

      • Morgan

        Oh, same here!

    • still waking up, but getting there.

      • Morgan

        Well good morning, Doki!!!

        • it is night actually, I am trying to get back to a normal schedule. ^_^

          • Morgan

            Ohh, okay!

    • davefragments

      ok. It’s been a nice day.

      • Morgan

        Good to hear! 🙂

  • Wayne Lunkwitz

    Hi everyone…….

    • davefragments


      • Wayne Lunkwitz

        I almost spaced “camping”

    • Bei Dawei


    • Hey Wayne.

      • Wayne Lunkwitz

        Hi Doki

    • Morgan


      • Wayne Lunkwitz

        Hi Morgan

  • I kind of want to take a nap…

    • stickfigurefairytales

      Yeah, I’m starting to nod off myself.

      • Sometimes just laying in bed and having the option of napping takes care of it, other times I pass out for 3-4 hours.

        • davefragments

          I went through almost a year where at the end of the second round of JEOPARDY, I would close my eyes and wake up at the credits music. Missing the last question.
          Exactly that long, no more.

  • Hey everyone – I know we’re all excited for this new page (I certainly am!) but I haven’t gotten the colored page from Vero yet and haven’t been able to get through via email. I’m not sure if there’s a problem with the Internet in Argentina, but it’s likely to be a late update tonight.

    I’ve been holding off dinner hoping to be able to post the pages, but at this point I need to eat, so it’s going to be at least 30 minutes more.

    Just a heads up. Sorry about this. We’re doing a new thing so it’s important to get it right. I’m sure you understand.

    • I hope everything is alright with Vero! Hopefully it is only a small internet glitch.

      • Bei Dawei

        Probably needs extra time for the 3-D effect on Spooky’s manhood. Also for lettering the “BOINNGG!!!” sound effect.

        • Alex does the lettering 🙂

          • Bei Dawei

            Even for a “pow!” or “wham!” type thing?

          • davefragments

            yes, all the lettering is added by Alex

          • Yup.

    • Take the time needed. Food is important.

  • Bei Dawei

    Are other people getting weight loss ads? (I’m sitting here quietly sobbing, and wondering how they know.)

    • They have been around for a while, I say while eating a handful of chips at almost 6:30 in the morning. Hey! I had breakfast an hour ago xD

    • Alba

      Not really, I’m getting ads for other comics. If it’s recent, try clearing out your cookies and cache -internet ads change because they read your cookie history and target you with things related to what you searched/pages you visited. If you were on any related site for a number of times or a length of time, the ads change to target you with things that your cookies say “interest” you. Sometimes it also happens if an unwanted pop-up makes it into your history -it doesn’t matter whether a page was open willingly or not, it was open and the cookies are saved.
      If you don’t want those ads, clear out the cookies and they generally can fuck off. If it doesn’t work, then the site is being targeted with these particular ads and it’s not related to any specific user.

      That aside, don’t listen to them, in most cases they’re complete bullshit anyway. 😉

      • Bei Dawei

        But I never look at weight-loss websites! My theory is that Big Data assigns these ads to anybody on a comics-related site.

        • davefragments

          They send everyone weight loss ads.
          Usually the latest fad diet that doesn’t work.

        • Alba

          might be. I haven’t seen them yet, but that’s probably because I’m already infested with british airways ads from every drection lol

    I was in the grocery store earlier in the week……and saw something that was both intriguing and oddly repulsive at the same time…..Where I live, the local Safeway refuses to carry coffee flavored Oreo cookies……but now they are stocking coconut flavored Oreos!

    • Those both sound good?

      • Wayne Lunkwitz

        Not really…….a few years back I tried the coffee flavored Oreos……to me they were great……but as I said…..the store stopped carrying them…..because the manager said they didn’t sell good enough……but NOW…..they are stocking the oddest flavor I could imagine….coconut flavor…..I’m not a big fan of coconut.

        • I like both flavors. ^_^

            Coconut was one of my Dad’s favorite flavors…..especially when Mom baked oatmeal cake….it was like a spice cake always topped with a brown sugar/butter glaze with browned shredded coconut added in.

  • OK – I still haven’t heard back from Vero, so I’m going to post the linework for now. Should be up in about 10 minutes or so.

    • I knew it! Checked only 10mins ago. Ahh, now what to watch first xD

      • I actually checked my twitter at just the right time. ^_^ I actually got the second not Hamlet comment this time.

        • Looking at the minutes since Hamlet’s page comment, I checked for a new page maybe 2-3 mins tops before it was uploaded publically. SO close xD
