And we have mention of the OTHER character that's been in the TWC voting incentive :3. Something tells me that finding him is going to have a really big impact on the plot, and now Sid here has motivation to make that happen. GOOD JOB, KAL! ;D ;D

Btw Bleke has appeared in the comic already. On THIS PAGE, Panel 4, you may recognize a bit of that sword tattoo you see on his face :3.

I was a balding man's hairline away from taking a week off for the holiday! But couldn't bring myself to do it XD

Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas to all of ya! I hope you all have good ones! <33

Ah, yes. Offer a promotion to someone wanting it by having them go after someone else that has the position. The best way to move up in rank...or at least the most crooked way.

Now what is Hizzy up to, and who caught him? (I'm guessing Keyman)

Haha the only way in this brigade is the crooked way!

Lolol Hizzy, the MASTER of stealth! That is a REALLY good guess! :3

Uh oh...let's hope the evidence (aka Bleke) doesn't lead back to Hizzy...

That's certainly one way to motivate someone, although it won't cultivate loyalty...

Yesss let's hope not! I think Bleke will have some uh....really important insights :')

And you are right! I suppose Kal knows he can't really inspire loyalty from his troops so he keeps them motivated by uh..other means XD. It's probably because he HIMSELF operates this way! >___>

Oh, so we're NOT finished with our daily serving of Hizruk-do-you-ever-think-things-through! Here he is, nobly fighting of a fearsome bush while the consequences march on.

I love, love all the insights into the umbra's this page gives! Bleke (his new nickname is Schrödingers Bleke :P) looks great and just like (read: just as mean) I'd expect Kalverik's captain to. It's also super interesting to see the contrast between Merek's and Kal's Umbras. Even with orders to withhold information and absolutely no reason to get involved, Marek's crew STILL put their necks on the line. And here, Sid is not just completely unconcerned about his disappeared colleuge, but actually delighted that he's gone! I wonder if, even if he does find Bleke alive (I'm not optimistic) he'll just leave him there to get rid of a rival.

And Sid. I know you're terrible and I'll have ample reasons to hate you later. But right now you're a new farovrite of mine. You're the exact level of shady and backstabbing I like!

Enjoy your holiday, Serpenty! Have lots of food and relax!!

LOL! I know, Hizruk has become the King of not thinking first in this comic XDD. Thank goodness there are other people around to take the fall for him :P...thooo Kal is catching on. THAT didn't take long!

Ah man, as usual your insights make me so happy! You reallyy catch on quite perfectly, it's a joy for me to read! The contrast between Merek and Kalverick and their brigades is quite night and day! I think their OWN motivations in life are reflected in their troops X"D.

I'm so happy that you enjoy Sid's character! Yes...shady and backstabbing I think would be accurate way to describe him XDD.

Thank you so much, I did! I'm glad the holidays are just about over tho!

Wow... Blame it on Bleke, have Sid kill him before he can testify to council... brilliant, Kal, I see you've been reading your "Villains for Dummies" handbook!

Suddenly I think I'm regretting my statements last week about Sid not being such a bad guy. (I hate it when I regret things)

On a completely seperate note, MERRY CHRISTMAS, SERPY!!!!!

Hahaha never underestimate the two-face potential of the characters in this comic!

Haha yes..Kal sure knows how to motivate his troops! Against each other >__>

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU TOO! At least.. I hope you had a good one!

What Kal did is absolutely beneficial to Hizzy XD Thank goodness he is panicked.

Also is that Keymen in the end?

Hahaha can we go two seconds without Hizruk hurting himself? No... no probably not XDD

26th Dec 2016, 5:56 PM


...Well, I didn't, right up until you linked the page, and then I went on a character hunt to find the tattoo. And then I found it. XD I always appreciate good, near-invisible foreshadowing. Excellent good.

No one in Merek's brigade... Well. You sure about that? I think Merek might be. XD

Ah, exhausted and evil. What a lovely combination. You certainly do have a way with villains; the greed and utter disregard for anyone who isn't 'me' just leaps off the page here. Quite the contrast to Merek and his folks. And I appreciate that; you've got excellent foils here. Two totally different command styles, one of which is totally selfish and leads to completely selfish underlings (who, nonetheless, have pretty good mindless minion capabilities) and one of which is completely selfless, leading to trust and loyalty and equally selfless workers, who might go off the rails on their own and take initiative, but probably do a better job overall because of it.

There's certainly something to be said for having folks who have your back, no matter what. Kalverick doesn't have that, he never will, and I doubt he cares. Which is a shame, because if he DID...

...Well, he'd be a MUCH more terrifying villain than he already is. And I loathe him plenty now.

So maybe it's a good thing he and Merek are total opposites. Can't be rooting for the bad guys, after all! XD

I just noticed that the bricks behind the green haze have slightly different colorations and shades and it's making me ridiculously happy and I don't even know why. I like it. I appreciate it. It gives the background more depth than it would otherwise have. And besides, it just looks NEAT. :]

Also, the trend of having really good guys related to slimeballs continues. Yeesh; these family trees. I feel bad for the good guys at family reunions. D:

And there's Hizruk! Getting poked in the face by a bush. Why am I not surprised?

His trend of making fantastic decisions and being the Best Sneak continues...

Keymen, I see your speech patterns in that last speech bubble. You can't hide from me. >.>

On a completely unrelated note, I just now realized I have been drawing serpent eyes wrong in every piece of art I've done for you. Why didn't you TELL me? D: *apologetic flailing*

Anywhosies, well done, and I hope you had a good Christmas!

Hahaha it's always fun to find somethin ya didn't see before-- man I had this planned a LONG time! XDD

Lol and you are right! Buuut Merek kinda counts on Kal and his brigade underestimating him-- helps him get away with a whole lot more ;D.

I'm so glad that the contrast in the leadership styles is so clear! Yes.. everyone in Kal's brigade is pretty motivated by self-interest, and Merek's is so completely not that way haha. BUT...sometimes self-interest can be a reeeally GOOD motivator sooo perhaps our good guys should watch their backs :'D

HAHA Omg! It's pretty great that you can recognize Keymen just by his speech patterns! You deserve an award <33

O man have you? Haha I haven't noticed! Most people who draw my characters like to draw them with this point I just go with it and don't even notice anymore! I love it!

Thank you so much!! <3333

Oooh dear, Kal, the way you motivate your men will horribly bite you in the back one day. I hope you realize this. But I suppose you can't spell betrayal without three letters from loyal...
