Haha well..... apologies to those of you who were hoping Higo would just kill him off right here and now. He just can't be bothered X).

He thinks very little of Kalverick and while he does have disdain for him, it's not to the point where he won't just let nature take it's course here. Buuut he did want to take away what little sliver of hope he had left

Shout out to DLKMusic for jumping into Higo's head last week haha!

Will Kal survive?

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

So sorry for the late page guys! I had some other projects I had to prioritize. Until the day SoO works for ME a little more, there's gonna be page delays here and there.

For anyone who was hoping to see Kal meet a gruesome demise, Proxy170 of Project Arc fame created a LOVELY "alternate scenario" just for you! LOL


CLICK HERE TO CHECK IT OUT



Next week I will update with the chapter cover and will also be updating the fan art page with lovely pieces I've gotten over the months! So I look forward to seeing you!

Cue the 80's montage music as Kal struggles to survive and prove the guy wrong.

Jet fuel can't melt steel beams, but DAMN Higo can snap some! XD

I might be alone in this, but I am PLEASED to see this is not the end of Kal's story! :D

Now, that's just lazy. And a waste of a decent firearm.

Also, littering.

Worse than a kick in the guts: "You're not worth the time it would take to kill you" Way to rub it in Higo!

I actually thought he was gonna hit Kal with the gun.

Haha he knows how to REALLY damage a person! Physically AND mentally--Kal's just gettin the mental dose for now heheh

Lol well in a way he DID hit Kal with the gun! He used it to kill his only hopes for redemption in the eyes of "his masters" hehe

This is so awesome, I'm not even gonna gloat! (okay, who am I kidding, it's Kal, of COURSE I'm gonna gloat!).

Uhm, Hey Kal, just in case you missed the subtext, If you DO survive, and he sees you again, it means that next round it WILL be worth his time to kill you... Just thought you should know!

that fog is a really cool effect, Serpy, the artwork on this page is incredible.

Haha VERY true! Higo is on a more important mission right now but if they ever meet again...Kal might not get off so easy!

Thank you so much! To be honest I'll be kind of sad when it's not a misty day anymore--I love illustrating vibes like this!

Bu-but he could realize th-that people are just trying to live l-like them! And, start a... an insurgency! Rise up against his bosses! Get himself a gun and fight! Defeat the snake bosses and break down the wall! Or... okay, fine. whatever. \{`~`}/

I like that he didn’t kill him, it makes sense with Higo’s personality. He doesn’t waste time, but he’s certainly not very merciful either.

Really good job on the armour design by the way!!

Yess very true-- he's very calculating and nooot very empathetic to someone's struggles. Especially someone he thinks as little of as Kalverick lol

Thanks so much! <3

Oh, so he’s a little like Apocalypse from the X-Men comics, the whole Darwinism survival of the fittest thing. I’m into that.

If I may ask, are these other projects art related? I would love to know what’s up there. :)

Haha I am not very familiar with X-Men, but yea...Higo is a creature of nature. His values certainly resonate with "natural law" lol

O yea for sure! Well they're just my commissions and whatever other graphic design type gigs I get--- I'm trying to sell more of them and its makin me a little busier!

PROXY! How could you draw that picture?! After there is so much more for Kal to do in this life! X'D (You hear that, Nature? Don't go killing him just yet! I need to see how he handles living through this!)

Okay so now the question remains though-- if Hellgiah didn't come here to kill Kal, what exactly did he come here to do? Especially in that armor? :o

LOL it's still so funny to hear anyone so fervently defend Kal! Especially you against Proxy who's always been his #1 fan! X"DD haha jk jk

Hehe weell we know Kal is outside the Nation's borders...and Higo's now going the opposite direction of the way Kal was going (which was home)....so it seems like he has some business to attend to in the human realms :3

Oof! That's cold Higo, ice cold! (Dang he's cool though!)

I'm glad he didn't kill Kal...it'll be so interesting to see what direction the character takes from this (very low X'D) point. Well...assuming he survives >_>

If Kal survives, then he'll tell the council about seeing Hellgiah and incidentally end up saving Bleke and allow Merek to keep his position.
