And now we officially meet mean, dagger-wielding jerk-face Umbra! Apparently he's as thrown off as we probably are... seeing Kal supposedly so calm, and...thoughtful >__>

In case you are curious... yes he actually HAS appeared in the comic before.... on THIS page (4th panel).
He was fleshed out, and therefore created by, the amazing Alicia of Silver fame! Thank you Alicia!

Hehe there is fun fact about who this character is related to.. buuuut I think I'll let it be a surprise X3. IF YOU CAN GUESS RIGHT I WILL GIVE YOU A SKETCH REQUEST! :D (I will respond to all guesses via PM so everyone can participate <3)

ANYways! A few different ideas about what happened here from people:
--- Council thinks Merek's brigade is behind
--- Kalverick is on to Hizzy
--- Sid suggests a possible inside job, Kalverick's brigade, BUT....

See you next week and thanks for reading! <333

MST3KFan many possible scenarios that even Kal's crew is involved with.

As far as a guess for who Sid could be related to... Hmm... I'd guess maybe Kilion?

The way he winced at the guards showing up to class and then vanished just makes me think this. Like maybe they bullied him a lot when younger and stuff...

I'll comment more when I'm not running on four hours of sleep, but is Sid related to Barron? He kinda looks like him, if only the blond hair and face shape.

Dammit, Kalverick, why did you pick NOW to start using your brain?

Oh... and while the brain switch is in the "On" position... 10 Years and you still don't know his name? Nah, low morale wouldn't have anything to do at all with this, now would it... just forget I said anything.

I swear, I've seen smarter villains on Xena.

So how's my audition for president of the "I hate Kalverick Fan club"? Did I make it?

LOL! You have a valid point! Low morale amongst his troops can definitely lead to all this failure happening. Someone needs to change his management style! Looks like he's starting with Sid here :3

Haha I think you won the nomination! Though I believe Centy as called for some morbid ideas for his demise.... it might be a battle between you and her! LOL!
I love that he inspired all this emotion! Even if negative! :D :D XDD

In Fairness to Sid as a villain, other than follow orders (which is his job), he hasn't really done anything which warrants animosity (at least on my end).

He's intelligent, he isn't going out of his way to pick fights and torment people, and he's currently helping investigate a scene where several murders took place, like a professional.

I actually like him, kinda (although I do question his career choices)...

17th Dec 2016, 3:45 AM


Haha indeed he seems quite a bit more level headed than his own boss!
Though Kal himself seems a bit....different...ever since his reunion with Keymen X'D. That may or may not be a good thing for our protagonists!

I wonder if Sid will just sink further on the poop list the more we get to know him XDD. Only time will tell! :3

17th Dec 2016, 4:11 PM

DLKmusic (at work)

Ooh, Ooh!!! Last one, I promise (if you don't mind me breaking these kinds of promises, lol).

If I were going to guess who Sid is related to, I would say Zen... Not because there's anything to indicate they're brothers, but it would be freaking hilarious if they were!!!!!

Ooof, Kal...quite a mistep in leadership by not knowing your people's names! But then again this doesn't surprise me about him XD But this Sid guy doesn't seem to be HORRIBLY bothered...guess when motives align...

I'm not sure about the relation, but I think Mst3kfan's guess is a pretty good one! I could see a little bit of a relation maybe?

As tempting as it would be to please the masses.... one must stick to their guns!

17th Dec 2016, 7:27 PM


Wheeeeee, guessing tiiiiiime~

I have two, Serafine and Barron. I think Barron is more likely, but Serafine more hilarious. And now, with that out of the way, actual commentary on comic time.

I really love this background. It sets the tone so very well for the place - icky mildew green for the dungeon. Perfect. Kinda wondering how it's lit though; ceiling lights, maybe? It's certainly getting the job done. Marvelous mood lighting here. I hate the place already. :]

The people are the real draw for this page. I love how there's only two characters on this page, neither of whom has proven themselves to be likeable yet, one of whom I want to actively shove off a cliff (but I still love his pointy nose) and yet, I'm enthralled. I love the plot progression and interaction on this page. It works.

It also cements the fact that Kalverick is a massive butthead. How. The heck. Does his management style even WORK? Ten years and you haven't bothered to remember Sid's name. Wooooow.

I wish I could say I'm surprised, but I'm really not. I'm not even disappointed. I expect this crap from him. It's what makes him a darn good villain - but still, geez, dude!

So uh. Speaking of Sid. Glad the guy who knifed an innocent table finally has a name and a face. Curses, why did it have to be vaguely attractive! Definitely liking and am curious about that scar; given the importance scars tend to have in this story, my intrigue levels rise approximately a thousand percent whenever a character sprouts one.

He also looks exhausted. Aw, poor Sid. He looks like he could seriously use a nap.

I still have my own theories as to what's going on and I'm still not sure which oldster to pin the blame on but you already know all that nonsense so I shall hush up on that front. XD

Gosh darn it, Serpy, your EXPRESSSIONS. I can't. They're so completely perfect. Such lovely art. :] Even when Sid is wearing his helmet! You put SO much emotion into those eyes, I swear, it's fantastic.

And I love the shot of Sid taking off his helmet. Perfection.

Haha good guesses! I shall answer them via PM! :D

Lol yea that is what I imagine lights the place-- super high 'sky lights.' Makes the dungeon extra cold on those winter nights and extra wet on those rainy ones!

Hahaha it is a wonder how anyone could tolerate working for him for 10 years, right?? Buut maybe it'll all pay off for Sid in the end. It looks like Kal is taking a moment to stop and think and thats not good for anybody x"D.

LOL I'm glad you think Sid is vaguely attractive :3. Maybe it'll make watching him do unsavory things much easier! :D

And thank you so much! it can be a challenge to make a character with a helmet on their head interesting enough to read hahha-- tbh i'm glad it's off now X"D
