Welp Merek may have succeeded in pissing Merlock off-- I just WONDER if this will come back to bite him. I'm sorry if you're disappointed he didn't lay down the BEAT down in full here today XDD-- the time has not yet come.

I know you guys are wonderful and understanding.. but still I apologize that it is late again! I have an idea for how I can fix a few quality issues.. lookin forward to trying that out lolol.

The good news is... my mom is coming home from the hospital today! So that will no longer have to be part of my daily routine lol.

Haha and I just wanna share it cuz I think its funny....
Lookit what happened to my truck while I spent the night at the hospital Tuesday night XD. Isn't it sweet how good fortune smiles upon me? Lolol
Anyways! I'll be back next week with hopefully a better quality comic page up in here! THANK YOU EVERYONE for being so awesome!!

I was reading a lot of manga before this page came out, so I read it backwards. And funny enough, it still kinda worked.
Anyway, it was fun seeing that jerkface get what was coming to him.

Oh wow... Merlock is such a great character. Not that he's a great person, but he's the kind of bad guy you love to hate. nice page!

Yeeea its unfortunate she had to be with HIM. Lol but in all fairness.. she'd probably still hate him even if he WAS a nice man just cuz of the circumstances as to why she's married to him :P

Heh. Well, the turnout was a bit different than what I expected. XP

So...did someone steal the door to the back of your truck? O_o WTH!? In a hospital parking lot no less. Aren't they supposed to have security?

6th Sep 2015, 9:43 AM


I was really concerned people would be disappointed XDD..I hope not lolol. The time shall come just..NOW is not a good time XDD

And yes.... someone stole the tailgate off of it (and damaged the bumper) right there in the hospital parking lot! A camera picked up some of it.. and it showed security passing by it aaaand then later another dark pickup truck parked behind it..aand the tailgate is gone. I dunno if they're able to catch the license plate on it--- apparently this is happening a lot in my town right now

6th Sep 2015, 8:30 PM


There is a big black market demand for truck tail-gates? o_O

Hooray! He got roughed up a bit! But now I'm worried about Merek! I hope somehow something bad happens to Merlock that he doesn't end up getting angry at Gwynn for... She's been through so much...

I'm glad your mom is coming home! :D

Heh, well Merlock definitely swallowed that load of bull from Merek but Hizruk's mom is definitely not falling for it...

Also, character list needs to be updated. Only Hizruk's listed there.

Lolo.. OR DID HE? Haha.. its hard to say whether or not Merlock is being totally genuine--that last line of his is a lil bit ominous if ya ask me XDD

But you're right about that.. Gwynn sees through it already!

Aaand you're riight--- I was all geared up to finally update the cast page aaaand then got distracted. I should add a couple more with every page! Thank you for looking at it though, that motivates me to finish it!

Merlock might have a few doubts but he accepted it with only a sneering comment as he left.
I'd give 70-30 odds in favor of him swallowing that with an allotment for having doubts but still believing it until given reason to believe otherwise.

Glad to see your mom is finally coming home! That must reduce the stress levels considerably! Tell her we all said "YEAY"

Great job as always, but I'm a little disappointed that Merek didn't have time to fill a barrel with vinegar to soak that bastich in.

It really does!! I'm excited XDD.. I shall tell her! <3

Lolol aw thank you! I figured people might be a liiittle disappointed with the lack of proper beat down (especially you since yes.. you WERE the only one to ever stick up for him XDD)...... but that day shall come! I suppose it would be out of character for Merek to beat the snot out of him at a tense time like this. .

... You know, it's kinda ironic how the phrase "He's a snake" can be adapted to this comic for all the jerks in it.

Or if we delve into the Codex Alera Series, he's a "Treacherous Slive." Slives are these snake like lizards or lizard like snakes that have a sedative venom that makes you feel all warm and sleepy inside that they use to drug their prey so they can overwhelm and eat them.

Lol it's very true! Also for all the deception and conniving around in this comic too--- snakes have always been referenced to those kind of individuals too :3

That's really interesting about the Slives!! :O
*looks into that*

I wonder if Merlock backed off quickly because he knows Merek is stronger than him? If so, maybe Merlock isn't as dumb as we all think he is...

It is sad when your own wife would rather have you go to the brothel than to be at home. XD

Aaaaand now Merek has some 'splainin' to do. lolol

Lolol weelll I think that's true.. Merlock might not be AS dumb as we think he is. He sounds a bit ominous in that second to last panel if you ask me XDD

LOL and yes..that's really sad.
"PLEASE go sleep with whores and get drunk tonight... I want the bed to myself" XDDD
I think Merek is more intimidated by Gwynn than Merlock BY FAR XD

Damn. I would've wanted for worse, but maybe it's best that's all Merek did. However, he's not out of the woods yet.

Speaking of woods, hope Hizzy's doing okay.

(Also glad your mom is coming home and hopefully doing better)

Lol III know... i was concerned about people being disappointed with lack of Merlock beat down in this page XD. But that woulda probably been a real bad decision on Merek's part if he did that lolol

Ya know I'm having Hizruk withdrawals XDD--this is a long time to go without your main character bein in the comic! We'll catch up with him iiiin...2 more scenes? X'D

Thanks Cici!! She's definitely doing better <333.. I'm very happy about that

Can I feel just a TEENY bit bad for Merlock here. He's not a 'good guy' but he THINKS he's doing the right thing in his world.
I wonder if Merek will tell the complete truth. I wouldn't want mom to worry more than she already does.

Happy to hear about your mother coming home. Sorry about the truck. D;
