The Young Protectors: Legendary Chapter One—Page 9

157 Comments on The Young Protectors: Legendary Chapter One—Page 9


Look at that—a kiss! Three even! And those are not the only Kyle/Spooky kisses I have for y’all today.  Y’all have continued to be amazing over at the Patreon page. A bunch more of you joined in the past couple weeks, and you’ve now brought our support to over $6500! That means I’m now less than $500 away from breaking even after paying my artists, rent, etc.

You are superheroes!

And I have a special treat for you! A few months back, I asked Henrique of Inkstand Studios to create a special romantic pin-up involving Kyle and Spooky. He wanted me to come up with an idea, so I said “Let’s have them kissing on top of a monster they defeated.” Well, he (and Alex Sollazzo who did the colors) just knocked it out of the park!

Comments from Patrons have included: “VICTORY KISS. I’m loving this. One of my fave ‘extra art’ so far. This IS a hoot. This is sexy and funny.”, “What a Great ‘pin-up’. This is another great piece of art in The Young Protectors series!”, and  “This is awesome! The colors, the details, the expressions…everything is wonderful. But what I mostly love, is that in that moment, surrounded by smoke, dead monsters, falling buildings, firefighters, etc., they only have eyes for each other. This might be my favorite drawing to date!”

Here’s a sneak preview:

$5+ Patrons can download the full Safe-For-Work pin-up immediately. And $10+ Patrons will be sent a high-res version with over double the resolution on the 10th of October!

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 response to Spooky’s question was to pull his friend into a big kiss! And then Spooky kissed back! Where’s this going to go? Will there be more kissing? More talking? A sudden alien attack? (Or ninja robots! Please let there be ninja robots!)

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


  • davefragments

    My eyes are wide open and having happy thoughts at what they see

    • davefragments

      My one and only first comment for Legendary. That’s all I wanted in firsts unless it’s Kyle and Spooky in the story.

  • O.O


  • Saxon_Brenton

    [reads notes] Again with the ninja robots!

  • Dannykat


  • Saxon_Brenton

    Whatever disappointment Kyle was feeling on the last page, he’s decided to overcome it with impulsiveness.

  • Wayne Lunkwitz

    Aaaaaand there goes the hat! this is getting serious!

  • Mary Klemzak

    FINALLY! Some action! With no text? Hmm. I also love a “Shut-up-and-kiss-me” kiss!

    Get it, Kyle!

  • unknownlight927

    And just like that, I’m DEAD. From now on you will be dealing with my ghost. So yeah… As for Kyle, it is nice to see him just going for it, although I still feel there will be plenty of angst and drama for both he and Spooky whichever Relationship route they decide to take! PS; assuming this is leading to a full on sex scene, I guess my hat question has been answered!! 🙂

    • Madock345

      It has, though it’s not the answer I wanted

  • PreludeToA

    I hope this isn’t a dream sequence or like a platinum priestess illusion!

  • Cman65

    Puts in “You can leave your hat on ” joke here

  • Kisses Kisses Kisses!!

  • Nirgal

    About damn time, you guys.

  • Mawr kisses!!

    • davefragments

      Lots more

  • All the kisses!!

  • Songbird

    Now that’s one way to avoid answering a question. Yowza!

  • TwilightDreamer

    aaaww!! I’m not the only one who had a squeal when I saw the link, right?
    Haha! Hey Spooky, you’ve been put on the bottom again…. ;P…..well, so far anyway.

    • Madock345

      Methinks bi spooky didst protest too much 😉

  • Sapfo

    That´s one way of not answering. A good way XD

  • Bei Dawei

    Next week: Kyle discovers that Spooky is actually a woman.

  • Sapfo

    Where do I put a stamp for approving this page? Do agree with what is happening here, it need to be known!!

  • Jeff Baker

    Knock-knock. “Hey, guys! It’s me, Laser bear. Whatcha doin’, huh? Can I come in?” (Seriously, very sweet!)

    • strangeangel24601

      “I had a bad dream, can I sleep between you guys?”

  • Adam Black

    Spooky has a bald spot?
    Was that his big secret?
    ( horns would have been better )

    • See, I thought he did have horns from his time in Hell. Maybe I’m wrong, but I could have sworn that was the case and why he wore the hat… I’d have to go re-read TYP to know for sure.

  • Curt Clark

    BEST. ANSWER. EVER. I can’t believe I was worried. 🙂

  • Soo, Kyle did decide to avoid the elephant in the room (or is that two elephants; Duncan + the love/friendship?), and skip a couple steps… riiight to the fun and hot part.

    This being the result makes it hard to matter though. I like Kyle being all spontanious and sexy, and Spooky clearly has no objections 🙂

    • Curt Clark

      I interpret it thus:

      Kyle has had two very unusual, very bad experiences when it comes to his sexuality, and that’s it. So, rather than try to articulate that to Spooky, he’s decided to express himself the best way he knows how, AND pursue some newer, better experiences with his best friend and crush. 🙂

  • Concerto

    I must admit I really wanted Kyle to answer.

  • You just wait. Spooky’s hat is going to end up hanging somewhere cute before this is over with. It has a mind of its own and a dirty one at that!

    • Madock345

      Somewhere cute? Like, off his nose?

      • Nose, toe, it doesn’t matter so long as the location seems improbable and amusing.

        • davefragments

          When I was a kid, one of “those” jokes was “What hangs so far out of a man’s pajamas that you can hang a hat on it?” and obviously, the answer was “his head” …
          That’s still a good location for the hat to begin and end a story.

          • Of course, “his head” can take a naughty twist by asking, “which one”? Still a good way to open and close a scene!

  • Little inserted info: Starfighter has updated.

    (Heh, updated within a few minutes after I went offline last night. How typical)

  • Kyle gets to casually throw the cap to the side? I know this is in Spooky’s room, but that cap is almost its own character in the comic. Being ditched so casually, how dare they?

    Also, why haven’t we named the cap yet? Bad us! We name SO many things, even after first appearence, but not the cap. Shame on us 😉

    • Junior!

      • That’s a cute and good suggestion.

        • Well I was thinking that cap is so much a aprt of Spooky

      • I had a little silly thought: Captain Cap. Cap Cap for short.

        • Madock345

          I approve of this and wish to make it official

    • Klaus

      Li’l Spooky.

  • Cecilie Muldkjær Bredesen

    Now that was a good thing too wake up to.
    They are just so cute, but I hope Kyle is going to have too answer with words after the sexy time ^_^ or he could give out a love confession in the midle, but those are hardly taken seriously.

  • bronakopdin

    I love this!! Sometimes you can't express what you want with just words x3

  • TwoWayStar

    ooooommggg! 😀 😀 genuine happiness and fun for Kyle!!! This is what his first time SHOULD have been like!

  • Earl Patterson


  • Nate

    Houston, we have liplock!

  • LimpBiskit

    Nice. But if Hunter and Killer come crashing through the wall, I’m out.

  • That last panel is fabulous! I love the way it is drawn. It is quite sexy.

  • fujoshifanatic

    YAAAS!! That’s exactly the answer I would have given. Body language is the BEST language. ;-P

  • unknownlight927

    I know there have been a few complaints about the current art style of the arc and though it did catch me off guard at first, I really have enjoyed it. My one concern was how the “Hot and Heavy” stuff would play out, but if this page is any indication, we are in for quite a ride!!

    • I think Julie’s threesome panel in Truth & Dare also gave some good hints, but I agree with the ‘quite a ride’.

  • Julia Barnes-Brown

    ….I’m so happy right now for so many reasons.

  • Justin

    I guess I’m in the minority thinking I’d rather Kyle answered with words, then moved on to the smooching.

    • Concerto

      I’m in the minority too in that case.

    • I’m not sure it’s a minority, because I would have loved a good talk too. It’s just too soon.
      Don’t mind the smooching either.

  • Well, it is about time! I think they had been talking way too much. LOL

  • Been thinking about it, and as much as I wanted an answer what was Kyle to say that wouldn’t ruin the mood of the night?

    Maybe it’s too early for Kyle to talk deeper feelings about what happened with Duncan. Also it could really ruin the mood for what they know they’re there for.
    As for what Spooky just said, how to reply without (partially) lying and possibly/probably ruin the night, and something Kyle wants as much as Spooky? Spooky just indirectly said: don’t count on anything steady from me. Something Kyle already knows as well. How to come back from that, be fully honest about hopes, and not ruin the mood?

    This is too soon to talk deep feelings, it’s pretty much their first real time together after that kiss, and they’re just now talking about things that hasn’t come up in the years they’ve been friends. Kyle wanted this night. They both do.
    Luckily this is a full three-chapter comic, and a lot can/will happen, so maybe things have changed later on, and *the* talk will come… or maybe it won’t but it will feel better at that time that it didn’t.

    • Concerto


      • I know. Felt like that too until I thought more about the timing of possible love confessions.

        • Concerto

          I know but I can’t stop thinking about Spooky rejecting Kyle huuuu ;_;

  • JozefAL

    I guess Kyle’s not a fan of Joe Cocker, then.
    In case people don’t get the reference, Cocker recorded a song back in the late 80s called “You Can Leave Your Hat On.” (The song was written by Randy Newman and other people recorded covers of it but Cocker’s recording, used in the film “9 1/2 Weeks” seems to be the most successful and memorable.)

  • Jason Moon
  • Madock345

    Not the cap D:

  • D. G.

    Oooh smooching. Me likely.

  • Jojolightningfingers

    i love how spooky looks so delighted to be where he is.

  • Nichelle Haliday

    Now that we’ve reached the more physical portion of the night, the time has come to ask the important question: what happens next?

    Is this going to lead to some groping and grinding, hand/blow jobs, or actual penetration? Personally, I don’t think that Kyle or Spooky are ready for full penetrative sex as that’s pretty heavy stuff for a first time together intimately.

    But if they are heading that way, I’m very curious as to who would top this first time. Spooky might offer to bottom in order to make this easier for Kyle, but that would put a lot of pressure on our redhead to make Spooky feel good and that might taint his experience. On the other hand, even if Kyle might be in love with Spooky, bottoming for him might be a little too much after what happened with Duncan.

    I’d like to see what others think about where this will be going in the future.

    • davefragments

      To quote a gentle ballad:
      What happened then, well, that’s the play, And he wouldn’t want us to give it away

      • Senari

        I’m not sure I’ve ever heard anything from Sweeney Todd referred to as a “gentle ballad” before. 😀

        • davefragments

          I think of Sweeney Todd as a delightful romantic comedy musical with just the teeny-tiniest hint of cannibalism.

      • William Clapie

        Stop it! LMBO, no intellectuals allowed!

      • hennerson

        I suspect it won’t go smoothly, but if we’re getting quotey…

        “But thou contracted to thine own bright eyes,
        Feed’st thy light’s flame with self-substantial fuel,
        Making a famine where abundance lies,
        Thy self thy foe, to thy sweet self too cruel”

    • Klaus

      Also, though Kyle is now confident that he can avoid spurting fire, he may not want to put that to the test inside Spooky for the first time.

      • William Clapie

        Kyle mentioned the new ability to control the orgasmic fire. Why did it take so long? Fear? We saw him draw down the flames from a building.

        • Klaus

          He did not try.

        • NoiseShaper

          He had some control of fire before but didn’t really master it until he went all out against his dad.

    • William Clapie

      Humm. They are used to sleeping together. This has been mentioned before. Spooky stayed with Kyle and had to sleep close to stay warm. If they do nothing more than basic “loving” Kissing, petting, etc. That would be great for now! They are already close as friends/brothers/lovers.

  • Toli Bera

    Gasp! Kissing?! They’d best be careful!

  • John

    Awww. I wanted him to keep the cap on…

    • Madock345

      Me too -_-

  • Trisha

    Finally! Some Kyle/Spooky hotness. I still wish they looked like themselves from the original comic.

  • William Clapie

    Now that is a great page. Happy faces. I love it. No grins, just happy. Perfect. To the artist, you caught the idea perfectly.

  • Christian Harrison

    I’m confused by the new style. Is there a new artist? I kinna miss the other style.

    • davefragments

      Adam DeKraker who did the pencils for “Engaging the Enemy” wanted some time off. So Alex obtained the services of Julie Wright (who did the TRUTH OR DARE bonus. You can read it here: )
      all of this is explained on the last page of of the CODA of Engaging the Enemy –
      Adam will return for Chapters 2 and 3 of LEGENDARY.

      • Christian Harrison

        Thanks, Dave.

        Julie’s work reminds me of Captain Planet. Not bad… just not what I’m used too.

    • azoreseuropa

      Me too and now I dont like this new artist. Whoever this artist is great for other fan but not my taste at all.

      I miss the other artist. Sighing! If it is continue then I might quit this page.

  • Snorlaxation

    ~wolf whistle noises~

  • GiovanniBoss

    I felt the need to express my satisfaction towards the new art, as long as Spooky is considered. At first, I didn’t like either character, in truth, but, over the pages, I somehow feel like Miss Wright captured me in her Spooky art. I’m still missing this towards Kyle, though.

    All things considered, kudos to her, as Mister DeKraker’s clearly set the stakes very high, and change is usually accompanied by a sense of awkwardness. I dare say I even prefer her style on some of the latter Spooky panels when compared to DeKraker’s. I hope I’m not being indelicate by saying this, though.

    • Madock345

      I thought that was quite delicate XD

  • Hiya,
    In for another camp and the next page. This is going to be geewd.

    • Madock345


      Camp seems pretty sparse tonight. Something going on? Or is it just too hot for most people to come out? XD

    • davefragments

      It’s Monday

      • Madock345

        oh no

      • Oh crap, it is LOL…. well, tuesday here. Never done this before.
        This is what I get for having a weird sleeping pattern for over a week. My brain is exhausted for not getting a full night sleep without waking up. I woke up (again, second time tonight) at camp-time and thought I must have set my alarm for it, not being fully awake. Still not am xD
        Aww, if I only remembered 25mins ago when I just woke up, could have gone back to bed for about an hour. Now I have to stay up. Hope I’ll be around for the right time tomorrow.

        • davefragments

          It could have been worse. The traffic didn’t move in New York City this Monday morning thanks to the opening of the UN. The diplomatic limousines and police escorts even caused traffic jams in New Jersey this year.
          {that’s why I’m glad I don’t life there}
          Your Monday has to be better.

          • My monday was great. It’s my tuesday that’s starting like crap – and not getting better. Also got a runny nose, and have a headache starting. Maybe why I woke twice instead of one.
            But nope, no traffic jam (yet). If my head gets better I will face morning traffic in half an hour.

          • davefragments

            I got confused on that day thing.

        • Y’all scared me for a minute there. 🙂

        • Hehehehe. I have done that plenty of times. I have gotten all excited to camp. Realize no one is around, and then realize it’s the wrong day. Haha

  • Kate G

    Spooky’s Cap, you have been evicted from the premises. You are not allowed to be around for sexy times!

  • Madock345

    So is it actually camp day now? Because I tried yesterday but Alex wouldn’t give me the comic.

    • davefragments

      I try to get ready for the camps about this time to about an hour from now… That’s because I have to get all sorts of stuff ready for the night and tomorrow abut my computer needs 4 extra windows opened.
      Not many campers show up this early.

    • Doki may or may not camp. Doki is having the cramping. -_-

  • Doki accepts offerings of chocolate.

    • Madock345

      I hear the darker the better with chocolate for headaches. Does it work the same?

      Sorry you’re sick 🙁

      • I am unsure of the dark chocolate affect on cramping.

        Well… sick is one way of putting it…

  • davefragments

    Hello Campers.
    It the time for Page #10 with Kyle and Spooky getting it on.

    • davefragments

      Why is Tuesday night TV such a pile of excrement?
      repeats of repeats or repeats – both movies and shows
      Cops chasing satanists.
      Doctors pulling worms and maggots (I’ll stop there)
      Violent movies about terrorists
      all sorts of political channels

      • netflix?

        • davefragments

          Not yet. I pay too much as is. I don’t want to get another pay service.

      • NoiseShaper

        A perfectly good excuse to make use of your own music collection, for instance!

        I’m doing that myself right now.

        • davefragments

          I put on LA LA LAND.
          a bittersweet romantic musical with jazzy song and dance numbers

  • Thanks.

  • Well, I’m trying for camp for next page again. This time on the correct day 😉

    This is still going to be geeewd.

    • davefragments

      YAY ! you’re back!


      • Yeah, a crazy a sleeping pattern still, but made it though the alarm clock I thought I had set yesterday wasn’t my friend todaywhen it *did* go off 😉

        • davefragments

          At five minutes to 12 noon today, I decided to close my eyes for only a moment. I was sitting dressed and ready to do all those things you do at Noon, and a blink later at 12:30 I woke up.
          No good reason…

          • NoiseShaper

            …except probably that you could use that sleep at that moment, which isn’t the worst reason, all in all.

          • You got a power nap.

          • davefragments

            That I didn’t need, honest, I didn’t

    • Morning Danish, how are you feeling?

      • Will stay home today. Ended up doing so yesterday and will do so today as well. Hopefully well enough to go to work tomorrow. As long as I won’t be coughing a lot.

        • cough drops? syrup?

        • NoiseShaper

          Ew. I’m just fighting one of those down, as reluctant as it is to finally leave!

          Best wishes to your immune system!

        • davefragments

          Aw rats. I hope it clears up soon

        • Madock345

          When I got sick my grandmother used to make me this tonic, I’m sure it has an official name but I dunno it. It’s a shot of whiskey in a mug of strong hot tea with lots of lemon juice and honey.

          Probably not something she should have been making a 12 year old, but it helped and I still use it when I start feeling something come on.

          • I’ve gotten the same before, maybe except for the lemon juice, and it was rum. My mom called it a Rum Toddy.

          • Nothing like rum to cure all that ails you. ^_^

  • davefragments

    The nights I have insomnia, I turn on Les Miserables or Pirates of Penzance
    (I know, I’m weird)

    • heh, Pirates of Penzance makes me think of The Pirate Movie

      • davefragments

        The other night I found a 6 minute youtube about the first six notes of Sweeney Todd and how they are derived from the DIES IRAE

        • NoiseShaper

          That’s an extremely popular source for dramatic movie music!

          • davefragments

            Yes, those 4 notes are quoted in lots of music

    • Madock345

      I use Disney’s Fantasia. It’s a classic 🙂

      • davefragments

        My first symphony this year they will play the Saint Saens Organ Symphony.

  • Bei Dawei

    Next up: Spooky snaps his fingers, then poof! Kyle is wearing a nightie.

    • Maybe a solution to hide things here, but on Patreon it will be the full monty 🙂

    • davefragments

      a fire engine red jock strap

    • Madock345

      A body paint version of his super hero costume!

  • davefragments

    The last animated movie Watched was Zootopia and then it disappeared onto Netflix. Not bad.
    I saw 10 or 15 minutes of FROZEN and required insulin

    • Saxon_Brenton

      While I enjoyed Frozen for what it was, I’m continually bemused by how much it and Little Mermaid were watered down from the originals. As in, taking an intellectual property’s high concept and bowlderising the story. I am half facetiously waiting for a Disney version of The Little Match Girl which does not end with the protagonist freezing to death in the snow in an allegedly morally uplifting manner

      • davefragments

        It’s not that I didn’t like it, I just wasn’t in good enough spirits for that much animated Disney-fied schmalz

  • davefragments

    “Rebecca” has a great score.
    “Summer of 42” is magnificent.
    I like the older scores

    • NoiseShaper

      Yeah, I think I should also branch out a bit farther back indeed; There’s good material there, too…!

  • Morgan

    Evening everyone! How are we tonight?

  • Sapfo

    Daring Kyle! =D

    • davefragments

      The time for talk is over

  • Not long now…

  • Hmm, I just got to think about this. When we reach NSFW pages on Patreon, will we get both the explicit and non-explucit version put up on Patreon (last for the $3 pledge), or will they be linked to this site to see the non-explicit pages?

  • davefragments
  • Justin White

    that’s me lol
