Uh oh, Kal... trouble in paradise X'D-- he doesn't look happy about Demas' response regarding Hizruk-- he probably expected to be asked why he thinks that and be congratulated on his discoveries :PPP

Kinda funny that Kalverick and Keymen are both thinking Hizzy and both on the right and wrong track.

WHO else COULD it be? >__>
Hmmmmm <__<


Ooh my gosh guys. I'm sorry about the tardiness. I don't know if you noticed the page is a bit... bigger..than usual X"D. That's cuz I added a coupe inches to it so I could end it with that last panel!

NEXT page will be even bigger! But I think you will enjoy it :3

Thanks so much for your patience, everyone! Thanks for reading!

I am sure that the guy who's screaming is one of Kalverick's men, say... Sid? He really wanted that promotion, so he better start something!

You like to think big when you do your comic pages, Serpy! XD

So much finger pointing going on in these panels. Maybe it was just some random dude in the background no one ever noticed, or maybe it's someone no one would EVER expect is the culprit.

Remember, look to the one that acts the most innocent first. XP

Hahaha I sure do! Bigger the better! XD

Hahaha and indeed very true! But I suppose everyone has their reasons for suspecting certain people. Keymen knows Hizruk broke Shera out and knows he has this other nature--- looks might suspicious for the Umbra thing.
The Council knows that the cell door and chains were unlocked and not broken, so that implicates an Umbra... only KAL'S Umbras were supposed to know about this. But informtation leaks at the bar where MEREK lives and HIS umbras hang out...
Aaand of course Kal finds those familiar marks on the wall that makes him think of Hizzy XDD.

So.... haha at least they have their reasons behind the finger pointing!

Ooops long comment sorry X"D

Mmm, it's very true that Hizruk doesn't have any practical motive, given no one knew that he was the one who killed the Baliath. He's kind of like a kid on parole, so why would he do something so reckless as to get back into the dungeons so quickly? I see why Demas(?) reacted the way he did. But Hizruk-baby isn't operating on the logical I know XD

Merek and Keymen, you gotta get a better handle on this! Though you probably have a better handle on it than Kal does, for now... (Also I SEE DAT KYLE SNAP <3333 ehehehe)

Good job adding that last panel, it was worth that extra trouble! It's so ominous and epic :D

Don't hurt yourself over the next update though mmkay? :'D

Hahaha exactly! It's at least a little comforting that the Council isn't jumping on that as an excuse to lock Hizzy up again X"D.
Hizruk and logic just...welll, they don't mix hahahaha

I know, get your act togther Merek and Key! Hehehe yus Kyle! I've been excited to have him back in here! <33

Thank you so much, Rufiii!

It's funny how Hizruk always seems to leave conversations at a run. Definitely an interesting conversation (panel 8 looks really cool!). Yes, that is the question.

"Alright everyone, gather 'round! We are going to hold a seance. Now sit in a circle and hold hands..."

Oh ho ho! Shut down by the council! Certainly not the outcome he was hoping for.

Oh dear! I would hate to have to sit a job interview with those guys. Just seven hooded figures staring at you from behind a massive desk and someone transcribing every word that's reason to get stressed out here :D

Haha that's true isn't it! Kinda Hizzy's thing I guess... leave every conversation running XDD-- along with coming in and out through windows and sleeping in the dirt x"D

Haha that is right! He isn't used to having to be the scolded puppy X). Ooorrrr having Hizruk and Merek's side be taken over his LOL. We shall see what happens! :3

Omg yes that would be the nightmare job interview for SURE X'D

These evil guys are awful at rewarding their workers! Kalverick probably hasn't ever gotten a Christmas card from his bosses, either! At this rate, all the employees will be fired, and THEN who will work at keeping the regular old serpents in check?

Hahahaha that term "Poop rolls downhill" absolutely applies to this situation! The Council never sends Kal a Christmas card and likewise HE never sends any of HIS men christmas cards, then they don't get cards for their families and CHRISTMAS IS RUINED! D':

Perhaps it's time for some new management! XDD

Demas has eyes?! And they're just as creepy as expected.

I also love the Umbras' casual clothing here. Barron and Kyle's are both really nice and of COURSE Ryder would wear the equivalent of a leather jacket. I bet he thinks he looks super cool, haha.

What's the game they're playing? It looks like a fusion of go or checkers and something else.

So now we have yet another Hizruk theory, Keymen's possession/fusion one. That really implies a whole lot of things: that the Council (never mind that I hate them) may have had real evidence of "feral" behavior to go on; that Hizruk may have done things neither he nor us is aware of; and probably most importantly, that there's a new character with a very different agenda to Hizruk. I'm wary of saying that this IS sneaksnake or voice, but I'm sure that (both?) are involved somehow.

LOL I know right? I think after 200 pages we can start seein'.....a little more of some of these guys XDD.

HAHAHA Omg I love that you said that about Ryder XDD-- you KNOW he thinks he looks awesome :p. And yes! Actually that's exactly what this game is! A fusion of checkers and..somethin else XDD. I actually been wanting to draw out the actual board and come up with the actual rules cuz I ended up putting too much thought into it XDD

IIII Love your theories!! I LOVE EM' SO MUCH! Aaaah but unfortunately.... I cannot tell you if they are right or wrong hehe. BUT I CAN SAY that in part 2 of this chapter.....a lot of the answers to these theories will be revealed! :D

If it's not too much trouble, would you mind posting the rules? I'd love to see those (and maybe force a friend to play it with me).

Answers?? I can't wait!

Yesss thank you for the interest!! The game is called "Slice"...
I would like to draw up the LEGIT board I have in my head to better explain the rules XDD. But basically it's kind of like checkers but you roll a dice, and then you slide your pieces from point to point on the board however many times the dice says (like if you roll a three you get to move 3 times)..and your objective is to take out everyone else's player. It's kind of like connect the dots too... you can only travel the lines connected to the dots around the board XDD.

Hahahaha I hope that made sense :P

I wish I had something really witty to say about how much I love this page, but even a snark at Kalverick seems trite at this point, I would rather just watch him slowly roast over the open fire quietly...

And since everyone else has already said it, I won't bother to tell you that the final frame was EPIC! I'm sure you're tired of that stuff by now... (grin)

Finally, I see someone remembered the vote link! is it permanent now, or still on a week to week basis? not that I'm nagging or anything, lol... (Geez, I sound worse than my own grandmother!)

Life is super busy, but I'm back and caught up. I feel like Keyman is up to something giving Hizruk these instructions and telling him to make sure he follows them specifically tonight lol or maybe that's just me?
Anyway, fantastic story. The suspense in this chapter is something else. Give us some answers!
Great work, of course, as always.

19th Jan 2017, 11:53 AM


Ah... the nth hour. My old friend.

I didn't even notice this page was bigger until you pointed it out, and even then I didn't really notice. XD I DO love that final panel though. I haven't really felt the scale of this place before now; it's HUGE. An ominous. And it makes sense that the Council would be in an unnecessarily huge place.

They're obviously compensating for something.

Oooooh, seeing the boys in civilian gear makes me happy~ I spy with my little eye Barron's bracelet! Whoo-hoooo! Nice clothing designs; I love seeing how everyone's got a different casual clothing preference, both in color and style. It's quite lovely.

And of course I'm still grinning like a fool over the black-and-silver color scheme Merek's got going on. For reasons. :D

Gosh, seeing as how I already expounded on quite a few plot details there's not much else to babble about except the art! Keymen's looking better and better each time you draw him; these last couple of pages have seen some absolutely marvelous faces out of him and I'm very happy to see those.

It's a dice toss on whether or not Hizruk will actually pay attention to those care instructions. I don't care to place a bet either way.

I DO love the panel where Hizruk's fleeing and Merek spots it. Thaaaat's pretty much that relationship in a nutshell right now. And I like the way Hizruk's been drawn in that panel in general. Drawing people all tiny like that is hard and you've got a good grasp on it.

The Council. Hoo boy. So this page basically shows us in six simple panels exactly what the Council is all about - let's place blame anywhere it can be placed (except ourselves, of course), suspect those that should be above suspicion, and blatantly IGNORE all the obvious reasons someone might have to act. The Council SUCKS.

Not that I believe Hizruk did this, but come. On. If I were them, Hizruk would be high on my list of suspects - they DID keep him locked up for ten years. And tortured him. And they think he's just going to be OKAY with this?

Ugh. The stupidity in this room is overwhelming.

Although I do like seeing Kalverick not get his way. It's good for him. Very character building. >:]

And to end on a happy note, the boys playing a board game. It made me smile like a fool; congratulations. :]

Hahahhaa weell you should definitely notice NEXT page will be bigger than normal hahhahaha.

LOL you can bet they are! The council needs to look as big and scary as they can..cuz otherwise they are a buncha guys in robes and not so intimidating :P haha

Hhhaaha omg you saw the bracelet! That makes me soooo happy! I can't wait to call attention to it XDD--that will be a fun scene :3 (dang gurl u have a great memory!)
Yusss I am slowly getting the hang of that crazy Keymen guy--- he's ALWAYS been, for whatever reason, the hardest for me to draw X"D.

O man thank goodness you ARENT the Council our cast would be in bigger doo-doo! I'm sure they will come around-- they might just be spooked at seeing their whole empire flashing before their eyes! Hahaha this has never happened before afterall ('atta boy, Hiz! XDD)

This whole situation is a VERY character defining point for Kal hehe. FUnny you should say that :D

Thank you so much!!! <33
