The Young Protectors: Legendary Chapter One—Page 15

175 Comments on The Young Protectors: Legendary Chapter One—Page 15

Never retreat! Never surrender!

Uncensored (and extra-sexy!) version of this page available for $5+ Patrons here. 🙂

This page was particularly tough to censor artfully. Part of that is indeed Spooky’s extra girth (since it’s all about the D on this page), and part of that is what Kyle then does with that extra girth — with panels 4 and 5, I kinda had to show all or nothing. The next page is also going to be a tough-y. But with Page 17, I should be able to make the SFW pages here pretty again — and Kyle’s dialogue should also make it clear exactly what I’ve had to hide here, so you’ll still be able to follow along. 😉

In other news, you guys continue being amazing over on the Patreon page. We’ve now leapt past $7000 in support, which means as of now, I’m officially breaking even again with my expenses (paying the artists, rent, etc.) I am tremendously grateful to all of you (and I talk a bit more about that here). Thank you so, so much!

Also, over on Patreon, I’m having Patrons vote on their favorite panel so I can create a special reward in the future. For Page 14, Panel 3 is the clear winner with 41% of the votes. (Panels 1 and 2 got about 25% of the vote each.)  Looks like I’m not the only one who really liked our guys there! I wonder what panel will win for this page?

Finally, I’m at YaoiCon in Santa Clara this weekend, October 6-8. I’m at Booth 24 in the Dealer’s Hall. If you’re going to be there, please stop by and say hi!

So! Seems like Spooky’s a big boy. But Kyle is undaunted. How will Kyle use his superhero courage in this particular situation?

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

  • NoiseShaper

    So now we’re in the thick of it!

  • Wayne Lunkwitz

    Hmmmm…..OK…..now we know where this is going 😀

  • Saxon_Brenton

    I’m thinking that those boasts that Spooky made about his prowess waaay back in interlude 1 of YP:EtE may not have been too exagerated.

    • Klaus

      Gallons?

      • Saxon_Brenton

        Oh yeah. “Gallons”. I’d forgotten the exact hyperbole.
        Hmm. You know, I don’t think even the fudge phrasing of “may not” that I used will stretch to cover “gallons”. Sorry Spooks, I think I’m gonna havta retract my statement.

  • unknownlight927

    Oh Kyle, those superhero instincts never go away do they? Even during such a intimate moment, he cant help but SIZE up the situation??? 🙂 🙂

    • William Clapie

      deep heartfelt groooaaannn………..

  • TwilightDreamer

    I can only giggle at this page XD soooo cute!

  • Bei Dawei

    Kyle must be popping a zit on Spooky’s stomach. He is true friend.

  • Bei Dawei

    Ding dong!

    Hey, it’s the pizza boy!

  • Bei Dawei

    I’m shy. Can you turn out the lights?

  • Bei Dawei

    Imagine Adam West Batman style sound effects in the black parts.

    • Klaus

      Ha!

  • davefragments

    this brings back memories from a long time ago

    • fujoshifanatic

      I can relate to that. Back when stuff like that was just a WAY more fun way to say, “Hey, I like you!”

  • I’m loving Kyle’s expressions. So adorably fascinated, so awestruck, so determinted…
    Kyle is no quitter and he certainly won’t back down here. The boner is unwrapped. Time for a first taste.

    Started by looking at this page then went to Patreon. Yeah, there’s really no way to crop panel 4&5 outside of all black boxes.
    (unless showing Kyle tasting a big icecream in panel 5, but where would that come from? The ninja robots didn’t deliver it)

    • davefragments

      Good morning

      • Morning. My snooze button likely hates me, had hard time waking, but I showed up about 20mins before my comment. Was spending time looking at page (pages) and comments first.

        • davefragments

          I’m having a quiet night. So is the page. I finished editing one story last night and started editing another one today. It’s ghost story and I’m right at the climax of it all.

    • HA!

    • fujoshifanatic

      *Still giggling while wiping snorted juice off my phone screen*

    • Curt Clark

      I needed that laugh. XD

  • Is dead.

  • Sollin Faolan

    -stares at a half blacked out page-
    -stares at empty bank account-
    -stares at my non-existent job-
    :,) I can get through this…. I have an imagination for a reason.

    • Doki is in same boat.

    • Morgan

      *cries quietly* same…

    • Curt Clark

      It will be worth it. Hang in there. 🙂

      • Bei Dawei

        So to speak.

    • Toli Bera

      You’re not missing much. it’s mostly the Commander, Tsunami, and Flyboy fighting robot ninjas to keep a runaway bus full of explosives from careening into Grannie’s old fashioned orphan puppy community center.

      Y’know NBD NBD.

  • Ian Corral

    Kind of predictable that they would include such size in a comic. Nice to see stereotypes perpetuated.

    • fujoshifanatic

      1. Not beyond the realm of reality (based on my experience) and any way
      2. Actually breaking stereotypes, since that trope is usually not associated with men of Asian descent. Just saying.

      • Ian Corral

        Not true. The fact that most times you see any sexual action between men the whole being large is sort of expected.

        While not beyond reality, it’s not the norm and seeing it all the time in media just perpetuates the issue. It would be nice to show that average does exist and one doesn’t need to be large.

        So no it’s not breaking stereotypes, it’s just continuing a source of anxiety for most in the community.

        • The ‘average’ on this page would be Kyle, both in length and girth. It’s also still Spooky, as he’s within average size in length. It’s his girth that is above average. Both is shown on the uncensored page.
          Personally I read a lot of comics/books with ‘average’ size guys, and I think it’s normal and don’t expect more. I think the largest issue, no pun intended, are within the porn industry. Outside of that it *is* much more average.

          Also, I’m making a mod reminder to not to dismiss another commenter’s opinion completely. Starting a reply with ‘Not true. The fact…’ is not the best way to listen to what their input is. Their experience and opinion may differ from yours. Doesn’t make it not true.

          • Ian Corral

            I still don’t appreciate the teasing and then telling us in bold that it’s five dollars for the uncensored ones. That’s the kind of cash grab I don’t appreciate.

          • Morgan

            Right. How dare artists expect payment for their work? It’s almost like they’re people or something, instead of machines whose sole purpose is putting out content for your enjoyment.

          • And now this is where I step in before this becomes any more heated.

            I’ve been debating back and forth about whether to ban Ian. From the very beginning, a good number of his comments have felt fairly trollish to me and the other mods, but he’s also been critical of my work (as he is here), and I’ve wanted to make it clear that it was OK to criticize my choices in this forum. I’ve wanted to give him the benefit of the doubt.

            But a pattern has become clear. The substance of the vast majority of comments I could find from him on our site has been negative and often provocative. On other pages, he’s used a clearly disrespectful tone with other commenters. On this page he started with one criticism, and then when confronted, he swapped it out for a new one. And I’m seeing other readers being provoked by his comments and speaking with a tone I don’t usually see from them.

            It feels more and more like the true intention isn’t to contribute, but rather to provoke other commenters. So, after much thought, it’s time for me to step in, and ban him from these Comment Section.

            All that said, I still want to make it clear that it’s OK to voice honest criticism in this forum.

            In terms of penis size, there could be a useful discussion there. I myself have concerns with how penis size is often portrayed in gay media, which is why I’ve made it clear in canon materials (like our Trading Cards and Full Monty pin-ups) that only Spooky and The Annihilator are above average in penis size. My other male characters are average in penis size or smaller. Just like I believe it’s important to show different body types as attractive, I also believe it’s useful (and sexy) to show realistic human weenie size. Whether I’m successful or not I’ll let y’all decide, but that’s been what’s guided my choices in this matter.

            In terms of Ian’s concern about me charging for some content, that’s also a topic that folks can discuss. I’d request that folks read my Q&A under the title page first where I answer the question: “What if it makes me angry that there is some content I have to pay to see? Shouldn’t everything you make be free?” But if, after reading that, you still have questions about why I have some content that’s only available for Patrons (and why I’d decide to mention the availability of that premium content here), I’m certainly happy to answer those questions.

            Anyway, it’s a bummer for me to ban anyone. I think this might the the fourth time I’ve ever had to do it since I started these webcomics in 2011. But this is a moderated comment section, and it’s ultimately my responsibility here to make sure things stay constructive and enjoyable.

            This thread is now closed. Further responses will be deleted by my mods. If you’d like to discuss the other issues that were brought up, please start a new thread.

            Thanks, y’all. 🙂

          • Curt Clark

            Alex,

            1) I hope you’re not beating yourself up over this, as looking over his comment history I think you did the right thing.

            2) Your characters are your characters, to interpret as you will. Tsunami could be packing a literal redwood in his tights and most of us wouldn’t care because it’s how you envision him. But for the record, I don’t think Spooky’s too large at all. 🙂

            3) It’s big of you to include the censored versions of these pages here, so the general public won’t get lost in regards to the plot. I’m really happy you’re finally breaking even and I hope to see that improve — you, and Adam, and Julie, and Vero all deserve it.

          • Kurt, please notice the last three lines in Alex’s comment. I’ll give you a chance to copy your reply to a new comment/thread start before deleting it and this reply to you 🙂
            Any further replies in this thread will be deleted as of Alex’ request.

          • William Clapie

            Cool Man Alex.

          • Machina

            I kind of see it as the method that it was done in.

            I can understand that artists need to make money and the like, I mean this stuff ain’t free. But when you use similar tactics like using sex to sell a product (which many ad campaigns do and is one thing that is unsavory about them) it doesn’t come off well. It’s similar to those pay to play or pay to win games. They might be free but they really push you to buy from them. In this case it’s “tempting” you by describing the size of it and that you are really missing out if you don’t buy (hence the holding).

            I find this to be in a similar vein, even if it is art. I know some other artists on here don’t do that. To each their own at the end of the day, but that doesn’t mean I can’t find it in poor taste.

          • You’re allowed that opinion, just as Alex is allowed to make a comic you have to pay to see explicit scenes fully.
            Patreon is Alex’ only source of income from where he also pays his artists. Whether Alex can make it financially on Patreon decides whether the comic can exist at all. In this case he’s chosen not to show all for free, but still give a censored version for free. He could have kept all of it for Patreons only.
            Outside of sex scenes most pages was/will be the same here as on Patreon, still accesible here for free. On Patreon Alex has a better way of controlling who can watch the explicit pages (in case of minors), but it is also an extra thank you to patreons.
            Luckily paying or not for this *is* a choice.

          • William Clapie

            “good speak” I like the way you put it.

          • William Clapie

            How would you have Alex make money? Give it all away for free? Get real man.

          • Machina

            1. It seems no one read my comment.

            2. Don’t you people have better things to do on a Sunday?

        • William Clapie

          Obvious cash grab? Uh, have you read anything at all about Alex? He repeatedly tells us whether or not the income is sufficient for him to pay bills/artists and himself. So, how is this an obvious cash grab when he tells us that he needs/ expects cash support?

    • William Clapie

      Predictable? The size is within normal range. Unlike Hentai telephone poles

    • NOTICE: this in case anyone will start replying before seeing all replies in this thread.
      See Alex’s reply below. This thread is closed and new replies will deleted. If you wish to debate the topics in this thread then make a new comment.
      Thank you.

  • Nate

    Wow! It’s so big it blocked out the rest of the pic! 😀

    I think Spooky’s sudden vulnerability is cute. This may very well be the firs time he’s WORRIED about how big he is….

    I just hope Kyle hasn’t bitten off more than he can chew. So to speak. 😉

  • Earl Patterson

    wow big block… hey hey i want see it!

    • Klaus

      It needs to be big.

  • Aitsuki

    Those are some eager eyes Kyle has there!

    • Curt Clark

      I cannot be the only person who had “Hungry Eyes” playing in his head when he saw this page.

      • Bei Dawei

        “Chibi eyes” is more like it.

  • I think I might actually prefer thick over length. Though I will need more testing in this area to be absolutely sure.

    Great page Alex, Julie, and Vero!

  • Curt Clark

    Kyle’s confidence and determination are going a long way towards selling his newfound maturity here. And, yeah, it’s sexy as hell.

  • bronakopdin

    I can see how this is difficult to censor x’D
    great page though 🙂 and I love how the last seen panel here let’s the page end with Kyle’s optimism and resolve 😀

  • Klaus

    A “can do” attitude is a good thing.

  • Michael

    DAMN, I need to get my broke ass back onto Patreon. Hopefully I’ll be able to get off government welfare and into a real job sometime soon.

  • Biippa

    *ETERNAL SCREECHING OF THE BROKE HUMAN*

  • Mary Klemzak

    No view of the peen, unless you’re a patron and donate? Figures.

    So since I’m broke AF, I’ll imagine Spooks peen is like freakishly large, like in bara. Check the “bara” tag on tumblr. It can be hilarious.

    Also, I’m guessing Kyle is stroking and/or licking it, like a good boyfriend.

    • It’s within average length but a thick girth.

      • fujoshifanatic

        Which in my experience, is not unrealistic. Based on my male friends/partners, I wasn’t aware this was not the norm, so it’s probably more common than people think.

    • Bei Dawei

      Or maybe Kyle is telling a white lie.

  • Nate

    Something occurred to me last night while trying to get to sleep again.

    Unless he’s been more intimate offstage, Kyle is likely still technically a virgin… the fact that he immediately went for the Big Gulp™ suggests this is the case, as he has clearly not learned that all suckers should be savored slowly. 😉

    But what about Spooky? We know his first time (during his sojourn in Hell) was probably somewhat traumatic, and likely not all that consensual. And there’s no REAL evidence that he and Amanda have ever been that intimate (although their occasional kissing sessions were LITERALLY out of this world).

    It is ENTIRELY possible that Spooky has never had sex (with a human) before. Is there any wonder that he’s worried?

    • Klaus

      According to the trading cards and the text stories, this is very far from his first sexual encounter with a human, though they have mostly been women.

    • Alex said in a comment waay back, when someone raised concern, that Spooky has never been raped/sexually abused.

      Me: he may have been manipulated into thinking someone was more interested in him than they were, to get sex (something he hinted during his talk with Kyle in the warehouse), but the sex was not forced.
      And then there’s what Claus said in his reply. Kyle is by far the most sexually experienced on the team (which still has a couple of virgins). Yes, there’s the trading card/short story info but hints in the other YP comic, and Spooky’s own words a few pages back, tells that he has ecperience.

      No need to ‘worry’ there. And I think Spooky is just letting Kyle set the pace right now. Dude wants to explore, to Spooky’s delight 😉

    • Bei Dawei

      What does “virginity” even mean with gays? (Or straights, for that matter.) Or to look at it another way, what does “sex” mean to him?

  • Mill

    Well, frankly, I feel disgusted. *eg*

    Why? The Comic’s Creator’s explanation for censoring scenes of nudity or “explicit content” seems to be a little bit too … sanctimonious (-;

    “Everybody should participate”, despite of age nd so on?
    In fact, it’s only a sluggish trick for making money with porn …. commercialization!

    • fujoshifanatic

      Based on the inclusion of the emoticon you used, I’m going to guess that this was intended to be tongue-in-cheek, though to be honest, it didn’t come across that way. If not, then this sounds like a sluggish attempt by someone who is not yet old enough to view NSFW to guilt said creator into letting them get a proper peep. And that’s rather sanctimonious, in my opinion. *sips cup of tea while sitting under an umbrella*

      • William Clapie

        Cool visual pic my charming British gent!

    • nah. also let them ask for cash, they draw this. they deserve that cash.

      • William Clapie

        Some of this is much more work than people know.

    • Derkins

      It’s possible as fujo said that you meant this to be tongue in cheek, but if not — then yeah, what Microcat said. Artists have a right to a pay check. It’s deeply unreasonable for people to expect limitless high quality work for free. people have to pay bills. And in particular, people who go to college to learn these skills. And anyway, if they chose not to make money off the comic then they would have to do something else, and that would mean there was no comic. or they’d be squatting on the sidewalk or in the woods, without an internet connection — and again — no comic. I think what you probably really mean is, ‘thank you team TYP, for all the amazing, free, sexy comics!” ^.^

      (I run into this opinion a lot — that creators shouldn’t charge for their work. As an artist myself I can’t help but be very bothered by it. Society thinks that artists should go into debt getting an education in art, so that they can sacrifice themselves for the enjoyment of the public. Artists aren’t martyrs to art. Art is their career.)

      This way they can keep the comic open to the broad public, and ensure that those that do access their unrated material are of age, because they have a credit card. At the same time they can charge for that unrated content, and thus Adam can actually pay for the art to be made at all.

      • William Clapie

        Way too many “starving artist’s sales” in the day. Now it’s more common, “stolen, starving artist’s works”. Welcome to the 21st century. I used to do oil paintings. Selling them? yeah, good luck with that

  • Klaus

    So Spooky’s is far far smaller that that of the average Tom of Finland character.

  • ahh, i can’t get a credit card. 🙁 well, im just gonna imagine (despite danish saying it’s normal-big sized) it’s a bara peen. ridiculously big. like a salmon.

    • If it’s possible for you to get one, debit cards work too. It just have to be open to online (possibly foreign) shopping. If it’s not, just call your bank. I can’t get a credit card but got a debit card, and it works fine on all online sites. Just can’t spend more than what’s on my account.
      Most sites just call it credit cards in general, but the term covers both credit and debit cards.

      Another solution is making a paypal account. You can do that with just your bank account number, no card needed though it may go a little faster for confirmation with a card. There’s some good/easy manuals on ex. Youtube that telks you how to do it.

      • davefragments

        I am so far behind the times. I still pay bills with checks and have 1 (one, a very lonely one) credit card. I’m stuck in 1982 and so glad someone is financially in the 21st century.

        • fujoshifanatic

          You know, the funny thing is, I actually tried paying a bill with a check the other day, and it ended up causing me problems! I had found my checkbook at the bottom of a box I hadn’t looked in for like five years, back when I started paying my bills online, and I thought, well, I might as well use up these checks, since I have them. I sent it, and my bank called me to alert me of possible fraud, since they hadn’t seen a check from me in all that time. They even held up my payment and almost caused it to be late! I didn’t know whether to be annoyed or appreciate that they were trying to look out for my interests.

        • As of this year you pretty much can’t pay with/cash out checks in Denmark anymore.
          It’s been a while since you could in stores, but banks has dropped the system as well npw because barely no one used them.

      • oh danish ur always so kind and helpful~~ thank you~ ♥

  • Jeff Baker

    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • g051051

    Well, that’s it for me, I’m out on this story line. I was fine with the relatively tame stuff with Duncan in the other story, but I just don’t like this level of explicitness in comics. Respect for those that do, and props to Alex, Julie, and Veronica. I’ll check back every now and then to see if/when the story gets back to being more superhero-y, and less sex-y.

    • William Clapie

      props man for not knocking it. Sex happens. Some folks just don’t want to see it in some forms. That’s cool too!

      • g051051

        It’s weird…I don’t mind it in humorous comics. I used to love “XXXenophile” back in the day. But “real” sex in comics, movies and TV is just a complete turn-of (ironically). So something like “Ironwood”, while beautifully drawn by one of my favorite writer/artists, was a complete pain to read because all of the sex just kept getting in the way of the story!

        It’s just not my bag, baby!

    • There are definitely upcoming parts of the “Legendary” arc that are either dramatic or super-hero-y or both. Thank you for reading (and your thoughtfully expressed bow-out) — I hope you’ll enjoy what you see when you next check in. 🙂

      • g051051

        Reasonable people can disagree on things in a reasonable way. I’m no longer the intended audience, but I absolutely respect you and your work, and wish you nothing but success. I’m just sorry I won’t be along for the ride any more… “Young Protectors” was one of my top two comics for quite a few years (the other being “Questionable Content”).

    • Saxon_Brenton

      I get where you’re coming from. FWIW, I find that I prefer to read my erotica and pr0n in slightly bigger chunks, so at the moment I’m tending to just look at the pages and go, ‘Okay, this is fine, I’ll get more out of this when I go back and read it later.’ Whereas the pages with character and plot elements hold my immediate attention, get minute re-readings, and occasionally prompt me to write embarrassingly long posts about them.

      So, yeah, if you feel you want to take a break and return when the action stuff picks up again, that’s cool. We’ll see you when you get back.

  • Curt Clark

    Alex,

    1) I hope you’re not beating yourself up over the thing with Ian, as looking over his comment history I think you did the right thing.

    2) Your characters are your characters, to interpret as you will. Tsunami could be packing a literal redwood in his tights and most of us wouldn’t care because it’s how you envision him. But for the record, I don’t think Spooky’s too large at all. 🙂

    3) It’s big of you to include the censored versions of these pages here, so the general public won’t get lost in regards to the plot. I’m really happy you’re finally breaking even and I hope to see that improve — you, and Adam, and Julie, and Vero all deserve it.

    • Machina

      It’s a fine line though between close minded and standing up for oneself. It’s kind of the reason I don’t use Facebook anymore. No one likes things that disagree with them (and such things do cause heat in the comments).

      • fujoshifanatic

        There is a fine line between closed-mindedness and standing up for yourself, and that line is delineated by how you do the latter with your words and intentions. Not enough people know how to say what they think/feel/believe while respecting those of the other person, and that is what differentiates closed-minded bullies from those who simply disagree. People don’t have to step on other people’s dignity to state their thoughts, and if they feel they do, then those are thoughts I’m not interested in, because their intentions aren’t from a good place to begin with. Just my two cents on the matter; save or spend as you will.

    • Morgan

      ^^^ Exactly, though much more eloquent than my reply. (Sorry, Alex, for getting so heated.)

  • Samantha Phastine

    Am I the only one who still thinks this is exceptionally hot, even with the censored bits? Sometimes, the imagination can do… things that are wonderful.

  • Jason Moon

    So Spooky can put his money where Kyle’s mouth is!

    It’s nice when you have a reason to swagger.

  • Machina

    Practically everything is electric these days

  • Klaus

    Much more.

  • yeah kyle, that’s my boy

  • Kate G

    Well, I certainly missed the dramatic production here in YP Studios. I feel kind of left out as I am usually around for all of that jazz, but I was trying not to murder my nephew’s Breyer stick horse because there’s one part of this Dressage test that keeps messing me up. I feel a bit left out. o.o

    However, thank you to the wonderful Alex for forever keeping this place wonderful and sane. We like our forum to stay a delightfully wonderful, safe and intelligent place to talk. Plus, let’s face it, you offer a service to us and that is a delightful comic. It’s always been SFW because that’s how you roll. You’ve always been a little ooky about the NSFW bits. My philosophy is, whatever makes you feel uncomfortable publishing to the public, make only for those who are subscribers (free or paid.) Patrons are paid, so you want the porn, you pay for the porn.

    Alternatively, you can be like me and be like the tortoise in that ever proverbial tale of the tortoise and the hare and wait to purchase the book. The fact the comic is free is a bloody beautiful thing and I always feel terrible I can’t support you, Alex, or the other people I read or the artists I love! BUT, I always try to make sure I put your merchandise on my wishlists because I love filling my space (especially my new office!) with all y’all’s stuff.

  • Justin White

    wow, showing without showing, impressing (two thumbs way up)

  • Derkins

    Lol I am enjoying this scene, but it’s very contractual. Like, I didn’t know sex could be adorable. Very good for Kyle’s first time (for real first time), but not quite a passionate tangle of sweaty limbs. Maybe down the road when he gets more experience? (I can dream, regardless)

  • Wayne Lunkwitz

    Dave, you and I need to compare notes……Once ( and I emphasize only ONCE) when my Mom and I set up separate accounts in the same bank…..the bank screwed up and deposited Mom’s SS check in my account…..thus the bills mom paid bounced. When I heard what happened, I went to the bank….I was very upset……I demanded to speak to the idiot who screwed up my Mother’s account. By the end of it…..the overdraft fees were put back in her account……Mom got a personal apology from the lady who made the mistake…..and the lady, who was in her 60’s, ended up “retiring”. They learned a hard lesson…….NEVER mess with a person who is German/ Irish!

  • D. G.

    Are they cut or uncut? Is it a secret?/ I can imagine what Kyle is doing. Nice.

    • Bei Dawei

      Maybe he has two of them.

    • Klaus

      One of each. No. You are right. Yes.

    • Spooky is the uncut one.

      Bonus info. Of the ones who’s given info on (everyone but the minors), Spooky and Duncan are the ones who’re uncut.

      • D. G.

        Thanks Danish.

    I had this sudden silly image of an expurgated page, with a number of panels partly or totally blacked out. But there are still word balloons in the blacked out areas. And in the final panel, a final word balloon floating in the dark: “Hey! Who turned out the lights!?”

    • Bei Dawei

      John Byrne did several blank pages in Alpha Flight, featuring (he said) two totally-white characters fighting in a blizzard.

      • Saxon_Brenton

        Yes, the Assistant Editors’ Month issue, where various silly things happened across the entire Marvel comics line. That was probably part of what set me thinking along those lines. I bought it when I was a teenager back in the 80s.
        The demigod superhero Snowbird confronted (google search…) Kolomaq the Beast of Winter, who summoned up the blizzard against her. Word balloons, sound effects, narrative captions and even the shape of the panels all reflected what the action was, even though you couldn’t see what was happening. For a one-off twist on a fight scene it was quite clever and evocative.

  • Bei Dawei

    It only looks crazy thick because it’s short and stubby,

  • Bei Dawei

    Or “crazy thick” refers to the oozing encrustations from his rash. Like one of those VD photos they show you during health class.

  • 🙂

  • Yep.

  • Jerry Murry

    Not what I was expecting, but meh, still going to have a good story line(I hope).

    • This is going to be three chapters, and there will be some action too (outside of sex).

  • davefragments

    Hello Campers,
    How it all going for you?

    • Morgan

      Pretty great! How are you?

      • davefragments

        OK, editing another story and stuff.

        • Morgan

          Good way to spend your camp time. 🙂

          • davefragments

            This edit is the one where I either read the story out loud paragraph by paragraph (hard) or let the computer read it to me (easier). I have played a hundred words of it nearly ten times on occasion just to get the “hear” or it to sound right to my ears.

            Right now this minute I turned on the movie “High Society” just because it’s great music.

          • Morgan

            Having the computer read it to you is a great idea. I loathe editing anything.

          • davefragments

            I “hear” when I wrote wrong words or something too wordy or I have sentences in the wrong order more easily than simply reading them on the screen.

          • Morgan

            Nice, what do you write, if you don’t mind my asking.

          • davefragments

            sci fi / fantasy / horror / transformation stories.
            I’m getting a pair of ghost stories ready to post online at Halloween

          • Squishy

            That makes sence. There are times I read something I wrote a dozen times and it looks fine. Then I read it again a week later and realize I forgot a word in a sentence and my brain was just auto filling it in because it was supposed to be there.

          • davefragments

            You can change the font as another technique.

  • In for camp in the early, cold and dark morning, and all I wasnt to do is burry myself under blankets on the couch 🙂
    Even though it happens every year this year I seem to have a bit more trouble than usual, adjusting to it still being dark when I leave for work at 7. Sun won’t fully show up above the horizon until 8 am.
    Must be because we didn’t get as much sun during the summer.

    But camp. Camp will happen be it light or dark outside 🙂

    • Wayne Lunkwitz

      I know the feeling ,Danish, I had to turn the heat on this week……I’m afraid for the season…..GRRR!

    • davefragments

      In for a penny, in for a pound

      • davefragments

        Love is what makes the world go round

        beard the lion in his lair

        none but the brave deserve the fair

        {hint: musicals again}

      • Squishy

        I’ve never heard that expression before. I learned something new 🙂

  • Trisha

    I love the body hair. Most comics with men as main characters seem to forget that men are hairy. Its hard to not laugh at a fantasy ranger character who runs around with a clean shaven beard, no under arm hair, and no chest hair. With elves, it’s believable but not human men. Kyle not being hairy could be because he’s younger…or a demon and his hair just burns off as soon as he gets it.

    • Bei Dawei

      Also, they scratch themselves.

    • Madock345

      Oh, that gets me too. Love hair on a guy. I usually have to force myself to believe that they just didn’t draw it instead of everyone being Ken dolls.

      One of my favorite little details from Steven Universe is that when Steven and his human friends get trapped on an island for a few weeks, you can actually see the girl Sadie start growing leg hair because she can’t shave.

  • Wayne Lunkwitz

    Hi everyone!

    • davefragments

      Hi

      • Wayne Lunkwitz

        Hi Dave……I was running late tonight.

        • davefragments

          I haven’t had a page sighting yet.

          • Wayne Lunkwitz

            Give it a bit of time…..hopefully everything is running right today.

  • Wayne Lunkwitz

    Hi, Noise

  • Wayne Lunkwitz

    I wonder if Spooky knows any magic to make it smaller…..if the request was made LOL!

    • Morgan

      Hello!!

      • Wayne Lunkwitz

        Hi Morgan!

        • Morgan

          Whoops I posted that to the wrong thread, but anyway. That would be VERY intriguing

    • Madock345

      I would definitely have appreciate my partners having a spell like that in the past.

  • Wayne Lunkwitz

    For some reason…..my right shoulder is throwing a fit tonight.

    • Wayne Lunkwitz

      I think I know what happened with my shoulder….I was mowing today……just because the sun was out after several days of sporratic rain

  • Page should be up shortly. 🙂

  • Bleh! Getting close to the time I have to leave my blanket behind, get dressed and make my lunch so I’m ready for work.. and I don’t want to. It’s so chilly this morning. Nearly freezing outside. Need to find my thin gloves as well D:
    At least it looks like both day and night temps should rise for some days after saturday. Camping under blanket is nice, until you have to get up.

    • davefragments

      I hate chilly and cold anytime of the day

      • It’s also been windy along with rain during the day. When it’s cold I will take snow over rain. You get less wet.

        • davefragments

          wet and cold is worse than dry and cold

    • Madock345

      It’s been like 90 degrees here all week and I’m dying of hot and dreaming of winter. XD

      • 90!! Temps hasn’t passed 77 (in the shade) at all this year in the part of Denmark where I live. And on days it’s been above 70 it has often been cloudy and/or rainy. Best days has been sunny and in high 60s.

        • Madock345

          I live in Mississippi. We specialize in hot and humid. Middle of the summer you go outside and it feels like the air is trying to suffocate you. I absolutely love the cold and snow, but I guess if you have that all the time you probably start wanting some warmth 🙂

          • I’d love just one day near 90.

          • Wayne Lunkwitz

            Madock, I fully understand……in the ’80’s I visited the Atlanta, GA area for three days……..it rained all three days…..it was mid August and the humidity almost smothered me ( I’m born lifer Nebraskan.

          • Madock345

            Atlanta in august? That sounds like hell. Hope whatever you were doing down here was important!

          • Wayne Lunkwitz

            It was a one time road trip to visit a person I had been writing to for over 4 years…….after the trip we ended communication……turned out she was using me to make her boyfriend jealous.

          • Madock345

            Ouch 🙁 Sorry I asked. That’s rough dude.

          • Wayne Lunkwitz

            No problem…..that was when I realized I preferred guys over girls……

    • Trisha

      Try Missouri…sweltering hot yesterday, ice cold sweater weather today, along with pouring rain and thunderstorms.

      • Wayne Lunkwitz

        I’ve been close to Misery……sorry my pet name for it……spent a week in Nebraska City……

  • And the ‘game’ begins. I have to leave in 8 minutes. Will I get to see the page before that, or will I have to wait another 10 hours? Dun, dun, duun.

    • davefragments

      It just popped on patreon

      • Yay, got to see it, and now I’m out.

        • davefragments

          have a good day

      • Bei Dawei

        So to speak.

        • davefragments

          {blush}
          I didn’t mean it that way
          oops

  • davefragments
  • Rapiret

    Ohh, BOI, this is getting good. Patreon previews are up and that’s all I’m saying for now
