lol harry… just lol.
“I hurt in places I didnt used to have places!” Looooool poor morth that’s what ya get when you turn into a giant spider thing
Oh gods the limbs! Starting to regret all the limbs!
That’s a nice ending for the arc.
Or is it?! Da Da DAA!!
mostly I love the TMBG in today’s title O u O
Wait what if you put Morth’s soul in the Bookend? Now instead of it just being a spiritual battery, it’s now a convenient jail for Morth and he gets his lightlight/book end back. and if Morth gets out again, you can tell because it will stop glowing.
Do YOU want to go in and ask The Cerberus “Pretty please could I have the eternal enemy’s soul?”? DO YOU?!
*Ahem.* Also, imprisoning Morth’s soul means that it’s harder to write new stories for him. As it stands, there’s probably a zebra or a dalmatian who saw his ascension and wants to worship him.
We can always hope that Johnny will grow up just as the introduction video showed to bring good ole’ Morth back.
Am I the only person who thinks that hoping Morth will come back is a bad thing?
Granted, I figure he will come back eventually, but hoping that he’ll be back just seems like asking for it.
Solar…. Johnny isn’t real. I’m sorry to have to tell you this.
He’s just played by an actor.
The “real” Johnny grew up, left acting, and is now lives Middlesex with a wife and two children while he works as a carpenter. At this very moment he’s working on the skirting board for a house that’s being renovated.
Noooooooo! Why Johnny why?!
Would they really want to do that, granted it would be the way to make the bookend light up again and a good way to keep a eye on him. But…I just have this thought that somehow Morth would find some way to annoy them in the house and possibly make a alliance with the toaster 0.o
that would be the end of the world!
So Lothar says he knows a guy who can cave in the hideout?
Wasn’t ‘knowing a guy who knew a guy’ what caused this in the first place?
You’d think they’d be more careful…
At the very least it’s a guy that Lothar knows, and not someone that Lothar knows that knows someone else.
Would YOU trust anyone Lothar knows?
To blow a cave to kingdom come? yes. To drive me to the pub? No.
No, what caused all of this was the fact that Harry was a greedy twat who didn’t wanna fork ten quid (not sure how much that is but it doesn’t sound like a lot) for a bookend.
Still not sure how Morth found out Harry even had the magic bookend =/
Ten quid isn’t much. Half the cost of a meal out, or therabouts, if you stick to lemonade.
Recall a few pages back that Morth said he had agents in the inquisition that hadn’t alarmed him of a mobilization. My bet is that Morth knew of the book, got his men to trick Eastwood into stealing it (ooo shiny syndrome), and knew how to get from him after. Paternners are so sneaky.
You got it, I figure if we imply enough Cunning Chessmaster shenanigans, any plot holes get waved away as being All Part Of The Plan.
Woot! Win for me. =D *+1 to self confidence*
It hink the real question is would you trust Lothar?
If I was one of his pals, yes. Lothar is all kinds of dangerous, but he’s generally too brutally honest to decieve people, at least those he’s loyal too. If he’s neutral towards you, all bets are off!
Hm, it does seem that you are forgetting something Harry, something about a video?
That has been uploaded onto the internet? Seen by millions? Meaning, a certain bear boss is going to most likely find out about it? Meaning that you guys are most likely screwed?
Not necessarily. Said bear boss and his elite team of hackers would most likely have come across said stream and done their jobs at neutralizing such a wide spread possibility. I say this because we all know that said boss has quite a few…scrupulous videos he’d like kept under the CABAL radar…not to say that East & Co. don’t already have copies for themselves…insurance and what have you ^-^
Something going right for them? Doubt it.
Most likely, the shit’s about to start falling from the fan and onto all of their doomed little heads.
bear: you went up against morth by yourself when it took an entire army the last time…
then you screwed up and summoned a great demon. Then you fucked up again and allowed morth to become a demon… and then you won against both of them…. I hate my life.
We never said the story was over. And Morth never said it was being streamed live.
Stupid recurring villains…
Time out. Wouldn’t a stream NORMALLY be live?
Okay, Morth never said it was being streamed, period.
THANK YOU. -_- i got sick of pointing it out…
Ten quid says Lothar is going to bring everything down on their heads.
I love whe this comic updates. Seriously- I don’t know why you guys do not sell books of this stuff.
Because its a fancomic that might get a lot of copyright issues (especially from SEGA and quite possibly Games Workshop) to go through before being legally published?
“Your honour, my client, SEGA, demands that the defendant cease publication of their material, on account of some of the characters looking ‘a bit like Sonic and Tails, if you squint’.”
“…Get the fuck out of my courtroom.”
I think there’s more to worry about from Games Workshop, especially with the strange German laws on copyright.
But, hey: I’d buy a copy. I’d even buy the first book with the “before you hit your stride” early comics!
Bet you’d make buku bucks if you did a before and after of each prior to current stride. Mind you, time consuming as fuck I know, but still, fans like to see the artistic process ^-^
Redraw the old ones? Oh dear gods, no. There’s a reason we only update once a week, and it’s because I’m molasses-slow at drawing.
Hm, maybe a select few old strips “remastered” might make a good extra though…
Quick, destroy mine, before anybody else has to look at them!
Lets be honest, that should just be a thing.
so why haven’t you even tried to sell your stuff via pdf files?
other artists do it even with copyrighted characters.
I figure the costs of selling via a book outweighs the sales you might make.
Why haven’t we? Laziness, mostly. Stay tuned, though.
Judges have let much dumber cases than that get into their courtrooms.
Dunno how much exposure it got in the UK (probably none) there was a big story a few years back about a man who sued a drycleaning company millions for losing a pair of his pants. Obviously, he didn’t win the suit. But the fact that it made it into the courtroom at all is pretty damn appalling.
Y’know, if Harry was smart, they could trap Morth in that book-end while he’s being chewed up, imprison him eternally, keep him off the back of the inquisition?
Do you HONESTLY think Harry has enough intelligence and/or sorcery training to use the artifact like that?
So all he has to do is get on the line, ask for some step-by-step instructions, and not mess it up! And I think Lothar and Rogue would castrate him if he put a foot wrong…
… On the line.
You want him to call a hotline.
That instructs one how to perform extremely rare sorcerous rituals.
To imprison a demon prince.
In an artifact.
That is over 2000 years old.
Good luck with that =P
Aye, the by-the-minute hotline fees would bankrupt the whole black-ops budget for a week, AND Harry’s pub fund.
I kinda wanted Morth to be gone for good. I was growing tired of him.
That’s just because your avatar looks like the underling that Morth sacrificed.
Well, Janus was awesome. But seriously, though. He wasn’t doing it for me anymore. I’m interested to see if they bring in a new villain that has the same level of danger as Morth.
Well, that’s fair enough. But I think you’re in a minority – plenty of readers seem to like him, and we certainly do. Bad news: I’m sure he’ll be back. But not for a long while, we have lots of other ideas in the mean time.
I liked Morth, I guess I was just tired of seeing him so much. But hey, it’s your awesome comic, do what you want. I’m interested to see what you do next.
Morth has shown up in exactly TWO arcs – this one’s over (or almost) and he’s our only recurring villian… unless you count Schaefer(sp?) or Lothar.
Hmm? Why can’t they just suck Morth’s soul into the Unholy Bookend and end it for good?
The remaining members of his cult would probably attempt to steal it again.
Although, since Eastwood’s robot chicken and Blasphemy made short work of some Rodinian mercenaries and some ninjas, I doubt they’d have problems with a few cultists…
Because they don’t know how, and the research and setup time they would need to do would deny them their window of opportunity.
Silverswords, is your character ever gonna make another cameo, the characters page makes you look like one of those mysterious omnipotent super powerful elder death gods…..and Iv never seen the character in the new animation style.
Calling it now: Overlander Overlord. There I said it.
Oh GODDESS no! We do NOT need another Robotnik rehash!!
Enjoy your chew toy, puppies.
The idea of his soul being shunted into the “Bookend” could be a case of Expectational Irony, but it is fraught with too many chances of his continued presence. At least it will be more difficult to summon him if his soul is cast into the Void.
That OR he could become an occasional comic relief like the way the toaster is.
“Harry! There’s some scrawny teenager kneeling in front of your damn bookend again!”
“What’s the gender this time?”
“I think it’s a female, but after what happened the last time with the Soulthirster Cultist that converted to Patternai…”
I really hope the eye makes a good ball for the poor mutt. I really do.
A very gruesome, chewy end to Morth. Least Harry can laugh about it later over some pub antics.
Also, since this is the first comment I’ve made on anything EN related. Wanted to say thank you to the EN crew for creating this awesomeness. I’ve followed the comic for a very good few years and hope to do so for a few more.
and now you receed back in to the darkness of people who don’t comment
so this is your first comment and your avater is that of the weird worm that ate the angel.
too be honest i did somehow expect mine to be lothars brother the platapus guy.
also it sure sucks to be morth right now that dog obviously has some time for chewing purposses and other things a three headed cerebus dog does with his chewing toy.
You’d think saving the world would get Harry laid or at least get some fan girls
He’s an Inquisitor. Everything he does has never happened, probably including his birth.
Buuuut this is Harry, so it think the Inquisition might let the bad stuff stand.
so working for the inquisition equals no one ever knowing what you do getting acces to weapons, and invites to party’s where the boss get shot, gaint robot suits depending on your working station(if you work at the mini army they have) and lots of life and death situations. so where do i sign up?
I reckon you guys should consider a kickstarter campaign for this site; you could raise enough to buy the rights to the characters / style (although I’m fairly certain this is different enough that you don’t run a copyright risk – may be different there, but in the UK this would definitely be alright). I for one would like to see animation, or a XBLA download in the style of castle crashers, or even a full movie!
I’m still pretty curious what happened to those souls. Their salvation seemed like a pretty big deal during that flashback. Well, I guess it’s someone else’s problem now.
Oh East. You start to make progres, then you go and screw up all over again by coments like that.
And Morth, booyah. Buhbye!
Unless the internet thing worked, and then you may end up having followers. That would suck.
Morth could have tried to stall the creature for a moment with a witty remark while using a banishing ritual to send it back to the void. Too bad, I’ll miss him.
East you never fail to amuse : D
