Here it comes.

edit: Confession time, all personal drama aside, these things don't never me ten hours a panel and I can and will punch these pages out to stay on Comic Fury's "Popular Now" page. What I'm saying is I really appreciate your "5" ratings.

I think we have seen that type of gun before (of which the purpose apparently is taking care of that "hostile EM environment"), though not in the hands of MSV...

Also, artifacts that are "potential lethal devices"?
Yeah, ToyCo is quite good at building those. (Even when that was not their intention!)

It's always a treat for me whenever I see two comics I am associated with on the "Popular Now" page!
(Of course that's only a technicality, given that lirvilas is actually doing almost 100 % of the work here.)

Recently, a new reader binged the first few chapters of the German version of Cryptida and thus temporarily pushed it into "Popular Now". Too bad that the timing was a bit off (the English version was up there too, but not Childhood's End) - otherwise I would have been represented there thrice...

@MR: This is gonna sound strange, but I really appreciate how you respond to reader comments here.

I friggin' love reader comments, but I am a one-legged man in an ass kicking contest when it comes to my time. Often, it's either draw the comic or write comments/hype... I'm glad you are chiming in, I hate seeing comments go unacknowledged.

@ lirv: Aw thank you!
Yes, I try to leave no comment unanswered on principle!
(Though here, the "difficulty level" of coming up with an adequate reply is sometimes a bit higher than usual, due to the fact that I don't know much more about many aspects of the story than a "normal" reader.)

Ah. I think it's becoming clearer. We shall have to see if the pieces fit the way I now think they do...

Would this, then, be something of a dress rehearsal for the Siege?
Microraptor 7th Dec 2018, 10:38 AM
Isn't it usually considered a good omen when stuff in the rehearsal goes wrong. ;-)
(Granted, we already know that they apparently will manage to archive their main objective at least...)

The thing I like best about the gay Nazis that Tona recruits in the Let it Ride series, repeatedly, is that there are remarkably few sensibilities and political orientations they wouldn't be offensive to. When safely separated by the dividing line between fiction and reality from me, there's a lot of humour to get out of that.

On the other side of the fiction/reality divide: I've been surprised by my general reading telling me that an awful lot of Nazis, neo-Nazis and other violent bigots of similar militant character are gay (or were gay when they still lived).

Yeah, I didn't exploit my fabulous fascists nearly as much as I could/should/would have.

But you know how it goes... day jobs are a bitch.

I'm always rating 5 your pages.
lirvilas 17th Dec 2018, 7:42 PM
And it is MUCH appreciated!
