Merlock's had this coming a looong time from Hizruk. He's been taking it for a long time from everybody

I wonder if Hizzy's recent meeting with Hellgiah kind of empowered him a bit

-------------

Thanks for reading you guys! <333

on one hand, I'm proud of Hizzy for doing that coolly: No yelling, no posturing, no excessive violence... but on the other hand, I really wanted to see more of Merlocks blood in this scene. (I'm Irish, and we're all about yelling, posturing, and excessive Violence, you know!)

But on my third hand (you know, the one that protrudes from my chest), I am seriously concerned about the repercussions when Merlock goes whining like the little @$&# that he is to the council. It's not gonna be pretty.

Oh, btw Daggot, you're gonna have some competition for who's the whiniest @&)$ in town! Better step up your game, dude!

PS, well done! I especially like the angle in frame 3, Serpy!

LOL well scenes not over! Jk jk

Yeaaa haha! Daggot and Merlock are very different characters but yes..very whiny characters. I think if we could hear their vvoices...Daggot would take the cake-- I imagine he's got that high pitched, annoying voice LOL.

Thanks so much!!It was fun! This page has more movement than usual X"D

Merlock gets his comeuppance! It looks as if he wasn't expecting it. Too bad! LOL It might be lucky for Hizzy that all he did was toss him out the door. If he caused much injury, it might get him in more trouble than he's likely to be in already.

Hizzy gets a big ol' YES!! :D

It's about time! Hizruk's never really stood up to him before (contrast this with their first scene together--but don't really go look at that first scene cuz UUGH aaah old art *vomits*)

But yus! I mentioned before Hizzy would get some points with this scene! <3

@Serpy: I honestly don't know why you are so hard on your old art. The Old stuff is better than the majority of the stuff out there... You just went from good to great to OMG

NOBODY starts at OMG level, young lady!

I agree! It does seem like most artists hate their earlier stuff, though. The thing is, you can look to it as an indication of how far you have come! All that practice pays off! (Plus it's nowhere near 'bad', just maybe not as polished, and certainly not enough for vomiting!) :D

Aw you guys are right haha you both always tell me this when I get all "EEEUGH" at my old work--- you're the best! I will feel more ready to like..try to get this printed into the hardcover comic series I have in my dreams when I can update the older art to at least look like it does now. I feel like now is a better starting point because I'll certainly keep improving! (HOPEFULLY :P)

Since the beginning of the comic, your art has gone from "good" to "even better," not from "bad" to "good."

You go, Hiz! Just... don't get in trouble, please :S
I'm actually impressed by how much restraint he has here x'D (now, I haven't seen the next page, but still. I'm surprised he didn't slug him)

That was very satisfying xD
And the art is so good, aaaaa

Buut alas..the scene isn't quite over!

Not exactly sure what to think, Will this solve anything or cause more problems? I can’t say I feel much for Merlock though

Well, no one can tell you what to think. I see it as Hizruk standing up for Gwynn and Tia, and affirming that he won't allow Merlock to bully them. Will it cause more problems? It's likely, because someone like Merlock is probably going to go complain somewhere. Hizruk isn't known for thinking things through, though, is he?

Yeah it’s good to stand up for them at least, that’s for sure. I guess we’ll see how things turn out. I can definitely appreciate Hizruk’s heart, and I can understand him here.

I have a day off today and guess what I did?
Yeah, I was reading this comics from the start. I must say now it's one of my favourite series of webcomics. Usually I'm not hooked on the most projects. The main reason that all characters are the same (like a template with different color of hair and eyes). Your characters from the beginning have own personality, both in art and story telling. I've read that you hate your old art but I always love watch how artist improves through years. But anyway every character was well written and designed, no matter how good or bad your art-skill was.
Also, I'm not a big fan of fantasy last years but your setting is so neat that I'm attached to the whole concept. It's so good that I'd wish to have a fan OC serpent based on the universe. :D

::FAN-GIRL MODE ON::
I don't know if it surprises you or not, but my fav character is Merlock. My tastes always were weird, I know. Lol. I'm always obessed with side characters who are acting like absolutely assholes. Not even villians. Haha.
He is actually unhappy maried too. I can explain his behavior very well since his wife is in love with the other man. Pluse I think he has some suspicions that it's not his son. I guess I'd be a moron too if I were in his shoes... Struggling and trying to protect what should belong to him. He is lost. All what he needs is a little love.

I just love how you reveal characters in your story to show all sides of them. Even those who are pure antagonists of the story. Hope to see more about Merlock then.
Aaaand I find him attractive. Hahaha. He is my absolutely waifu! TT_TT
::FAN-GIRL MODE OFF::

I want to thank you very much for all this work you've done. This comic is a pure gem and I can't wait for more. I love the story, the characters, the art (and Merlock LOLOLOL). I'm glad that you found me here so I found you.
And I'm so sorry for my english, it's kinda broken since it's not my native language.
Have a great day! <3

Omg! Thank you so much, this comment really made my day you have no idea! Haha I really enjoy your work so far and look forward to seeing how your story progresses, so I'm feeling pretty honored that you read and enjoy Serpents so much! :3

LOL oh my gosh never in a million years would I have thought ANYone would ever fan girl mode on...MERLOCK! LOL! But you know what? That makes me so glad! He's pretty much been meant since his creation to be irredeemable jerk but as with everyone there is more to that (which we will see X3). But it's wonderful to me that you can pick up on those more subtle things behind his assholery.... lol like the fact that Gwynn was never willing to even give him a chance, so yea..he IS unhappily married and it's not ALL his fault, and he does have good reason to suspect Hiz isn't even his son. Most people don't really think that deeply about him haha.So I'm really inspired right now :3

But, again, thank you sooo much for reading and for the thoughtful comment. I'm so happy you'll be sticking around and we'll get to support each other's work, and I hope you will continue to enjoy where the story is headed.

You're awesome! I'll see you around! <33
