Is he, Spooky?

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

Over on the Patreon page, I shared something very special with the $5+ Patrons—a new pin-up by superstar artist Silverjow and it’s of The Annihilator in full Silver Fox mode!

Here’s a sneak preview of that:

$5+ Patrons (even brand new ones!) can download this pin-up immediately. And $10+ Patrons will be sent a high-res version of all this wallpaper with over double the resolution on December 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! It’s all good with Kyle. He’s totally down with their sexy times just being a friendly thing. Because that’s all this is, right?

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

  • Sapfo

    No!?

  • Michael

    aww, look at Spooky’s face in the final panel. It might be wishful thinking on my part, but does he look a tiny bit disappointed in Kyle’s answer?

    • Madock345

      I thought he actually looked a little angry

    • Klaus

      Not pleased, that’s for sure.

  • Squishy

    Kyle’s left arm isn’t colored in the last panel.

    • Squishy

      Half of it is colored white like the bedding to be precise.

      • Madock345

        This is becoming a tradition XD

  • Time for another talk.
    Kyle has come to terms with how it would be between him and Spooky, based on Spooky’s usual terms. Question is whether those terms have changed a little for Spooky, and if so, does he realize/know yet?

  • Kyle’s big blue eyes in panel 3.

    • Madock345

      Definitely dreamy

    • Saxon_Brenton

      Almost anime eyes.

  • Shiny Gwilly

    yeah man, it’s just bros being dudes, dudes being bros
    dude bros
    (sorry i haven’t commented in eons, i just haven’t had anything to really say/add lol! still been reading though of course, loving every page)

    • Klaus

      Unlike Duncan, who is, of course, a bloke.

  • Brad Majors

    The bed seems so large in that last panel, like there’s so much space between them.

    • Klaus

      Kyle is distancing himself from Spooky.

  • Klaus

    He did say no!

  • Saxon_Brenton

    Back from Saturday gaming. Time to comment on a new page…
    Okay, so it looks to me like we’re back to where we were right at the start of YP:Legendary. We know from the end of YP: Engaging the Enemy that Kyle definitely has a thing for Spooky, but Kyle seems to have talked himself into thinking that Spooky somehow isn’t available and that what’s going on right now is friends helping each other out. And Spooky is being all cryptic comments and open questions and not coming out and saying how he’s feeling.

    This is incredibly frustrating, since normally Spooky is such a direct person. If he thought he needed to say something, he’d do so. Is it possible that for all of Spooky’s skills of social interaction and his proven ability to put other’s at their ease, that on a purely personal level he isn’t so sure about his own ability to properly handle intimacy?

    • That last question. As someone who is great at helping (handling/advicing) *other* peoples emotions and reactions, but horrible at really sharing my own emotions and personal life/thoughts (I’ve gotten better but mostly in writing), I have been thinking something like this too -about Spooky- because I can see myself in that.
      He’s caring and loving, but incredibly independent, and when it comes to own emotions it can be very hard finding the balance of those two sides.

      • fujoshifanatic

        I think a factor in this might be his own personal history? From what we can gather from the main story and the supplemental Patreon backstory, most of the people Spooky has gotten involved with on an intimate level (sexual or otherwise) are no longer around to tell the tale (think Anaado, his receptionist, one of his clients), with the exception of Amanda. I think his lack of directness is not only a way of protecting his feelings, but also a way to let Kyle be protected from any possible hell-curse that taints Spooky’s intimacy with others?

  • Kate G

    I love Panel 1. Kyle is so sexy when he’s frustrated/disappointed. Maybe that’s just me. XD

    Oh, and here’s the best picture of little Miss Bree for now. She can be a ham sometimes, but she is mostly shy.
    https://scontent-ort2-2.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/23795629_10210740953817011_6510178827916864753_n.jpg?oh=955727281963a3d524073cef09a903fe&oe=5A8C7AB7

    • Madock345

      She’s adorable! Looks a lot like my granddad’s Lucy. Is she a Feist?

      • Kate G

        Nu uh. She’s a Decker Terrier, like Zena was, only she is 95% Decker. Zena was 78.25% Decker Terrier and the rest was Rat Terrier; Bree is 95% Decker, 5% Rat. The original Decker Terrier (like Bree and Zena, which are slowly now being shifted to being called Old Dominion Decker Terriers, or just Old Dominion Terriers) originated from a hunter named Milton Decker, who wanted a utilitarian hunting, companion and watch dog.

        You can learn a bit more about why there was a rift between Milton Decker and breeders who wanted to preserve the beauty of the Decker he created and the breeders of Deckers and the now rift of the AKC and the Rat Terrier and why breeders of Deckers (an extremely rare breed as is) are vying for their own breed name here:
        http://www.puppychulos.com/about-old-dominion-terriers.html

        You can see the differences between a Standard Rat Terrier (which can compete in the ring) and an Old Dominion Terrier (which cannot) in this video clip:
        https://youtu.be/NOpmnP_cwuY

        Okay, that was probably a much longer answer than you were looking for, but Deckers do look like a few breeds! I’ve gotten Basenji, Feist, Chihuahua (so insulting to my girls.) XD

        • fujoshifanatic

          Having just come off of watching the National Dog Show (one of my favorite Thanksgiving traditions), I enjoyed this mini-lesson. Even though I am owned by three…eccentric felines, I have had dogs as a kid, and love learning about the different breeds out there. 🙂

          • Kate G

            – gasps – OMG, I TOTALLY FORGOT ABOUT THE NATIONAL DOG SHOW! FUCK! Damn Spectrum and the lack of advertising. Hopefully it’s on demand. [Seriously, I miss Xfinity. XFINITY, COME TO WISCONSIN.]

            I’ve been in a rather sour mood all day. >.> This could be why. I missed my dog show. XD OR I’m just in the angry phase of grief. I’m not quite sure which yet. Time to get more potato puff casserole and see if the dog show is On Demand.

  • bronakopdin

    Damn I’m so curious on Spooky’s view >////////<
    Wondering where the rest of Kyle's left arm went in panel 6 ^^

    • Klaus

      It’s there. It is just that it is transparent. Some side effect of Spooky’s magic, maybe.

      • KatKaleen

        XD

  • Klaus

    Yes, Kyle. You are wrong. One of you needs to come out of his shell and admit your feelings first. Either will do.

  • Nate

    *shudders*

    I feel a great disturbance in the Hug™…as if millions of shippers suddenly cried out in disappointment, and were suddenly silenced.

    • Omi-Chan

      I felt it too…It’s like a massive rift opened up some where never the Milky Way….

      The force is real *intense distant stare*

  • David Welbourn

    I somehow suspect that Spooky might be slightly miffed at the implied suggestion that he’s only there as a masturbation device.

  • Saikkusukka

    Oh no, Spooky’s face on the last panel is making me wonder… Is Spooks just processing what Kyle just said or does he want something more?

  • Concerto

    I really don’t want this to be all this is. I just love this ship so much hmmmm >_<

    • KatKaleen

      Me too.

  • KatKaleen

    @Alex: What’s with Kyle’s left arm?

  • Well, this is going to be an interesting conversation…

  • Gaz Hawkins

    Hang on, back at the end of the end of the world, just after Kyle had daddy issues did Spooky not tell him he loved him, so if this is after that then spooky would think they are lovers and this is more then just friends or even friends with benefits did Kyle forget this? does he not want spooky as his lover?

    this could be awkward

    • Concerto

      Actually Spooky have never said to Kyle he love him, in that case it’s more about kyle having feelings for Spooky and him believing that Spooky don’t have anything for him other than friendship. ( I think I made a lot of mistake in that answer but I don’t know how to say it better, english not being my first language :c )

      • Gaz Hawkins

        well he did not actually say the words but II think the end of page 58 and page 59 says lovers
        http://webcomics.yaoi911.com/typ/ch5-page-58/
        http://webcomics.yaoi911.com/typ/ch5-page-59/

        • fujoshifanatic

          As awesome as those pages were, they probably were expressing something along the lines of, “Thanks! Like, a lot! I really mean that!”

          • Klaus

            It would seem to me that Amanda thinks differently.

          • Gaz Hawkins

            none of my friends express their thanks like that, no matter how thankful they are….. or how much they mean it.

            and why did spooky not thank the rest of the team the same way?

            nope I think there is something there but they are afraid to say it in case the other does not want to go beyond ‘friends with benefits’ stage.

    • LimpBiskit

      LAWL OK, so, “Hang on, back at the end of the end of the world, just after Kyle had daddy issues” is probably the greatest opening line ever, and I love you for phrasing it that way.

  • Madock345
    • Snorlaxation

      perfect

  • Klaus

    Laampros says that Kyle lusts for Spooky. He also says that Kyle wants Spooky as his mate. That could mean several things. No clear statement about love from daddy.

    • Snorlaxation

      I totally forgot about that.

  • Jason Moon

    How much of this “friends with benefits” is ‘friends’, and how much is ‘benefits’?

  • Wayne Lunkwitz

    Hello everyone……hope all (who celebrate) had a good Thanksgiving. I opted to “go out” to eat this year…..a local place offered a cheap dinner plate special , with all the trimmings…..and as the subject of “with benefits” comes up …..here’s what happened: Since I don’t drive I walked out to the place….went in ,asked for a table for one……I sensed that there was someone with me even though I was alone (My roommate and I had gone there several times back in the day). So I ordered my meal. The waitress was very good about refilling the coffee.Seeing families and groups of people around me dulled the feeling of being alone. As I finished the meal, the bill was delivered, with another cup of coffee, and to my surprise a comment…..the group to my left….a table of five had paid the bill for me. This one simple act of kindness almost moved me to tears.

    • fujoshifanatic

      Now this is what the holidays should be all about. Heck, this is what every day should be about, random acts of kindness that help us look out for one another, and remind us that our life journey matters, even if we travel stretches of it on our own. 🙂

  • Paul Bock

    Why is the animation so different from engaging the enemy? looks very immature/unprofessional/juvenile compared to the amazing art of the first arc.

    • PFG9000

      This is a different artist. Different artist different style. I will say I don’t like this style much, but the artist IS good. There is no need to insult anyone because you don’t like the style. Could you do better? I certainly couldn’t…and artists need experience, just look how the line art you like has progressed in quality from the beginning.

      Another example of watching an artists skill improve with experience is checking out the first chapter of starfighter and comparing it to the latest. Please give them a break.

      • Paul Bock

        sorry should have worded it better. I didn’t realize it was a different artist till i did some deep digging. thought it was a different look for an artistic/editorial reason, not just a different artist. Certainly better artwork than i can do! (my skills lie in different arenas LOL). I’m re-reading engaging the enemy, too. I was never a comic book/graphic artist fan before but i love this.

    • davefragments

      Adam DeKraker who did the pencil drawings for Engaging The Enemy wanted some time to himself. Julie Wright is doing the pencils for this chapter of Legendary. Vero Gandini does the coloring for both.

      • Jeff Baker

        Love it!

  • SchalaRenee

    I do hope it’s MORE than just two buddies helping each other out. More than a friend thing. Kyle loves Spooky, Laampros outed that fact. Hmm. I wonder if Kyle can become a living lie detector like his daddy? Also, I still wanna know…is Kyle a full demon sent to live among humans to eventually take over, or is he a half demon from one of Laampros’ random flings with a human? Its hard to see Laampros lowering himself to mating with a lowly human when he’s a King of Hell, but he may have raped a woman just for random pleasure.

  • Klaus

    Spooky says: “If that is what you want”, and the love affair of the century disappears into the realm of might have been.

  • fujoshifanatic

    Well, there’s a question that packs a load of heat, flames or no. You should have let Spooky spill the tea, Kyle. What’s the point of getting to the pillow talk portion of the festivities if you can’t have a little ki ki during it? Now I’m afraid for feelings to get hurt over people not saying what they mean and/or meaning what they say.

  • Snorlaxation

    It’ll definitely add some tension to have this hanging over their heads once we get into the next saga for these characters, assuming of course it doesn’t get addressed here.

    I have a feeling both of them would be good going into a real relationship, but there’s a reason fraternization like this is frowned upon with mission based groups like this.

  • Keneu

    Kyle’s arm under the pillow in the last pannel is not colored.

    • Earl Patterson

      LOL I never notice til now.

    • Terri Sutton

      Yeah, it is going to be fixed?

    • Brad Majors

      I refreshed to see if the new page had been posted and immediately noticed that Kyle’s arm had gained opacity and color.

  • Jeff Baker

    Again, I congratulate the writers and artists for their dead-on interpretation of the awkward innocence of the exploration of young sex and love. I’ll just say I found it very true to life! And very nostalgic!

  • davefragments

    Hello Campers,
    How are we tonight in the never-never-land Tuesday of shopping, more shopping, Black Friday Deals, Cyber Monday deals, End of Month car specials, Rent my dress specials, and waiting for Page 31… shop, shop, buy, buy, spend, spend, and in 30 days – pay, pay
    So how are you tonight?

    • Saxon_Brenton

      Pretty cool. Currently trying to get some end-of-work year (virtual) paperwork tidied up, since I’m starting my Christmas-summer holidays in about 2 weeks. Also, planning to go spend some gift vouchers at the bookstore this afternoon.
      Also, the same sex marriage legislation passed the senate within the past hour with minimal exceptions and amendments.
      And finally, I was musing on the semi-elemental nature of hellsnake biology and got bitten by a plot bunny. {sigh}

      • davefragments

        Yay for Australia’s same-sex marriage.
        I might just give gift vouchers for Christmas Gifts. I have no desire to go shopping.
        Also, I’m going back to all my old stories and editing them as updates and yesterday I did 4000 words. Today, I had eyestrain. But It was Cleaning Lady day so I didn’t edit anything.

        • Saxon_Brenton

          Whoa, *all* your old stories? Is there an incentive to do this, like updating your webpage or putting them in a published anthology?
          I know I wrote an awful lot of original comedy superhero fic for Legion of Net.Heroes back in the day, and while much of it could do with editing (or even full rewites in some sections) I wouldn’t do so without a pressing reason.

          • davefragments

            I enjoy writing and I’m retired.
            When my Mom took sick and passed away, I stopped writing because of the extra burdens. I fell into a bad habit of living with the TV news and politics. It can consume your life with its nothingness. I’m breaking that bad habit and returning to writing. I’ve posted two old stories so far and I’m preparing more.

    • Doki is having a not so good depression day.

    • Brad Majors

      Happy Giving Tuesday! I think I’ll celebrate by becoming a patron.

      • davefragments

        Wonderful, bravo
        Happy to have you join up

    • Morgan

      Evening Dave! I’m fantastic, I’m in the middle of making my very first art sale.

      • davefragments

        That’s good news. I think congratulations is a good word.

        • Morgan

          Thank you. I’m so excited. (And in disbelief)

        • Morgan

          Thank you. I’m so excited. (And in disbelief)

    • Klaus

      Danish shops have actually adopted black Friday. It makes no sense at all. A Friday like any other. We do have a holiday that is always a Thursday. It is the Ascencion, the 40th day after Easter. Why not use that? Or Easter Saturday. That has two holidays before it and two after. Biggest day of the year back when my parents had a grocery store.

      • davefragments

        From my childhood I remember the weekend after Thanksgiving was the day to decorate for Christmas. It wasn’t a massive shopping spree dedicated to shopping. It was the first day that any Christmas stock or decorations appeared and the day that they were lit up (exterior decorations).
        Now Christmas starts right after Halloween.

  • Foye

    Yes. Two buddies helping each other relieve themselves.

  • Saxon_Brenton

    I’m about to leave work and go spend those gift vouchers I was writing about.
    But before I go, here are some virtual raspberry jam mushrooms that I’m planning on cooking tonight for our final staff meeting tomorrow.

    • davefragments

      Raspberries, my fatal weakness, oh yummy

  • I picked the right day to show up a little late for camp. Now to see if I have to go before the page shows. Leaving in 40-45mins for a school course. Been sick tye last two days, but today I manage to go 🙂

    • davefragments

      I hope you are better than last week

      • I am. Not fully well yet, but starting my 5th day on penicilin now. That has done a lot. Coughing a lot in short periods still, but most of my throat/mouth swelling is gone.

        • davefragments

          You’re making progress. That’s good.

    • davefragments

      I put on KONG, SKULL ISLAND to make noise while we camp and there’s this scene where the helicopters encounter a huge Kong and fly near enough for Kong to grab them. I keep thinking — Are they that stupid not to fly away or higher? but then, this entire movie is a video game.
      Lots of noise and lots of explosions — eye candy for the gaming set…

  • Doki is going to go to bed. Night, sweet dreams, and happy hunting.

    • Songbird

      Feel better sweetie <3
