We were interviewed by UnleashTheFanboy.com, go check it out. Thanks go out to Edward for getting in touch and for his kind words.
That “Not necessarily” seems to be foreshadowing something.
The Hound’s greater daemon has lost some of it’s blood but I doubt it’s dead, in fact if anything’s it just gonna be ticked off. I’d say it’s foreshadowing that it’s gonna come out and fight Morth, and something tells me that a greater demon of war is gonna be stronger in combat than a demon prince of trickery.
The thought occurs to me that this has gone way too well for Morth given the nature of patternari demons, and the fact that the method for becoming this demon prince involved Hound Demon blood.
Some possibilities: Morth’s will will be subverted by the Hound in question, or this form is temporary unless he does something specific for the patterner. They never did say what he was chosen FOR
Silas: Will you please stop attempting to taunt me and run already so I can chase and murder you?
he’s got a point, the evil gods let you ascend into a more powerful form of destruction, what do the good gods offer?
cookies or rampaging monster bodies?
They’re chocolate chip cookies!
The daemon gods have brownies. Brownies sh*t on cookies ANY day
Thing is, only a select few ever earn that kind of reward. Most just get damned and have their souls devoured. Morth and cult leaders like him do, of course, leave that part in the very fine print.
The Just gods do offer a more widely accessible sort of eternity. Mort is keeper of the dead, but they are reduced to barely-aware shadows, they’ll never walk in the mortal plain again, and honestly his kingdom is kinda dull. Much easier to get into though. So it’s a risk-reward scenario.
Plus, the Just gods have granted angelic acension to a few mortals of their own. Fewer limbs and teeth, not so monstery, so that’s a downside. But a great hero like Saint Atreyus may still be around in one form or another. If so, he kind of has no excuse for forgetting about the trapped souls in the bookend.
That would be a massive no if that was forshadowing. Seriously- no hero gives a shit after death.
Evil still sounds more fun, though…
sooo… you’re screwed no matter what you do?
I guess this is more like W40k than I thought
Mort’s afterlife sounds less like being screwed (hard. without lube.) and more like sleeping.
“The gods required my assisstance in a matter of great urgency. Tyrus needed another beer.
Don’t look at me like that, do you have ANY idea how long it takes Mort to get a beer in that house? 3,000 years! And I made it in 2,428!”
Jokes aside, I see two reasons the souls could’ve not been released yet. One, the Saint could potentially be searching the world for a way to release the souls, but been unable to find anyone not-evil who knew how. Two, Angels could be unable to manifest for long in the world without a strong source of void energy, same as demons.
Not to poke in or anything in a sense, but considering the time frame of when the second excursion was to now, what are the odds that if he did ascend into a greater angel type being, that he uh… didn’t become a snack like the last angel we actually got to meet by this time?
Ahahahaa, Harry’s face in panel 4 … classic XD
wel at least if you follow the good gods your body wont be an walking abomination sure it has power but wich girl would fall for it?
Meanwhile, at the vault where the demon puppy is kept….
Yeah I’m pretty sure Lothar is there now. Though then again I might be wrong.
“I have a cunning plan!!”
we all know it.
Blasphemy isn’t around to be thrown as a diversion, so I guess that ones out.
but *Cerberus* is in the dome.
…no good will of this…no seriously, two high level deamon demi-gods battling out for supremacy in a cavern. Just what good is there to come of THAT…other than watching from the safety of one’s laptop viea uStream of course ^-^
A collapsing mountain, perhaps? Sure, it won’t stop the VoodooTube videos (assuming they’re going up) but it COULD crush the two demons inside.
He’s got a plan. A very famous plan. :) Lothar?
We know Virus isn’t on any panels after the team dodge. Though that could just be because Morth chose to go after the ninja and his former friend as opposed to the Cyborg and that guy who messed up the ritual…
I’m going to digress here, and try and guess who’d be the most dangerous to morth (excluding whatever it is East knows/ is trying to use against morth.)
Rouge-while the guy is bringing a sword to a gunfight all the time, he’s VERY well suited for the job of meleeing a daemon-he’s fast, so hard to catch, and that beamsaber probably can cut through near anything, demon flesh included!
Lothar-He pretty much all but has super strength, a laer cannon, and and a chainsaw hand-blade, not to mention those ‘jump jets’, which probably can give him a burst of speed if he needs it. Then again, I’m also a Lothar fanboy, so I probably do overestimate him a bit…
Eastwood-Sharpshooter? I know that gun of his has 7 shots…I’m guessing Eastwood is’ for an inquisitor, a very good fighter, and possibly an excellent gunman, not to mention the reason Morth’s record against these guys in combat is 1 for 2 instead of 2 for 2.
Virus-Seems to be the support guy of the bunch. Probably not high on the danger list in a fight, but more useful in, say, stopping a demon ritual from succeeding.
Someone give the demon a cup of tea and a pipe!
did the badger just tell the FOX to be better sport?
I say, bad form.
Perhaps Gentleman Cho-Gath might be able to lend him some advice.
so im just wondering, what excuse do we need for a “did you just punch out Cthulu?” scene here.
Yeah.. Cue Lothar for that level of badssery.
charging in on the back of the wounded cerberous, using virus as a riding crop.
And now I can’t decide whether I want something awesome to happen or wacky Tom & Jerry chase antics.
Virus should have gotten his tail caught in panel 2.
one thing I cant help but love about this site is the odd yet refreshing lack of trolls. I pray that didnt jinx us.
Trolls wouldn’t survive here. Too much humour and testosterone.
And englishmen. Trolls hate the english.
Sarcasm’s a pretty strong troll repellent, too. They feed off of the kind of folks that take everything as SRS BSNS, and they’d probably get snarked into submission prior to getting the boot.
Quite true, and Lothar (the writer, not the character) is an endless barrel of snark when he gets going.
Too right! Thank the gods for Lothar and his seemingly bottomless pit of wit!
*sniffle* Bless ‘im. :’)
Trim that beard, Silas. You look weird.
Really, I thought he looked weird with only one eye, I’m not really weirded out by the beard.
Y’know, now that you mention the eye, seeing as it is a bionic one, and he just ascended to daemonhood, couldn’t he also be considered to be somewhat partial to Fernix?
Speaking of Fernix, something that’s bugged me is the difference between him and Grubbs, the good guy machine god.
The way I see it, Fernix and Grubbs more or less represents how technology itself is neutral-it depends on the person wielding it. Fernix is the negative use of technology and strikes me as something akin to a computer virus in style, warping existing machines and jumping from one machine to another.
Grubbs is more like an AI, improving any machine he’s directly in contact to or something…I’m not too keen on the differences between those two.
Gruss you mean – he’s the good guy machine god.
Haha, you both have the same Gravatar.
Just gods for the win!
Let’s see, Patterner Cultist with Fernex Eye ascending using Hound blood…
All we need is some tentacle raep and Morth has all 4 covered in some way or another!
He is a pervert.
And suddenly THIS is a problem
Oh, for anyone who doesn’t remember: he forced a to-be-sacrificed lady penguin to dress in a skimpy revealing outfit and when she unconscious honked her non-mammal mammaries.
Soooo, he’s the evil gods poster boy. Hmmmmmmm I’m seein a tvtropes dragon in the making.
THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH ehehemm.
I suggest doing it bit by bit. Fingers first. To all of them.
…. All of my WHAT.
I’m sorry, But WHAT?!
hey, um i dont want to be a troll but am i the only one that notices that lothars hat goes through ths first and second panel?
Huh…. Your right….. Wierd. WE BE MUTILATTIN DA LAWS OF PHYSICZ NOOBS. WHY? *pimp slap* IT’S EU FOOLZ
Whoops, good catch! Fixed.
Welp, Silas is getting a little full of himself, inne? Can’t wait to see the guys pop his ego boost. It gonna be soooooo goood.
