C is for Cavalry. And chaos and collateral.
Have a dark and terrifying solstice, mewling children of Earth!
Yay was wondering how they would get out of that ^ . ^
Anti-climax if ever there was one… -_-
Until someone mentions who finally got laid and by what.
It’s not over yet.
Considering Nadia’s temperament- and team- I think they may soon regret being “saved”. What does it say on Virus’s profile? That they hope he crosses paths with a Tyrusian Puritan who removes him from their concerns? And what is Nadia again? This is gonna get hilariously interesting fast. Also, I predict that nothing of the monastery will remain standing once this is over.
Virus is going to suggest a purification ritual. That has to be done in a bed. With at least one woman. Preferably more.
What? Sometime, I can think like a character, if I’ve read enough. And Virus is a horny bastard with a sometimes absent self preservation instinct!
Don’t you mean Eastwood?
It’s possible that I do. I get Eastwood and Virus mixed up some days. :P
If he was laid and corrupted by a demon woman.
Shouldn’t he purify himself by being laid by the holiest of men?
Appropriate avatar. No, sodomy is considered blasphemy in this world, so being pope’d won’t work. The likely punishment is seeing his genetics not being passed on via impromptu sharp object quasi-surgically removed.
Beats a hot poker I guess.
Read 8 bit theatre sometime.
That comic is made up of nothing BUT anticlimaxes.
… The good kind, but still.
8-bit Theatre is also made of hilarity and comedic sociopathy. And more hilarity. And some really really amazing brick jokes. And characters that are likable bastards.
So, yeah. I recommend 8-Bit Theatre too.
My only problem with 8-bit is that it’s animated and it doesn’t have a scroll bar so you can’t review or skip ahead to the parts that you want right away. Unless that feature has been modified I’m afraid I don’t have the patience to trawl through the archives more than once or twice.
Hmm. I go to this archive: http://www.nuklearpower.com/2001/03/02/episode-001-were-going-where/
It’s not animated, and I do remember animated versions, but they’re built from the comic there, as far as I know. Also, it’s the same guy who writes Atomic Robo, if you’re familiar with that work.
Many apologies. I had 8-bit theater confused with mana theater…
Sorry for the mix up.
I like her
I’m predicting some sort of huge accident… considering the fact that Wildfire also jumped through the door
Yeah, Wildfire being in this basically means all bets are off.
I think we can just draw a mushroom cloud over the place and call it a day… if it weren’t for the fact that Wildfire has caused WORSE destruction than a nuclear bomb.
Nonono… you have Wildfire and Vittani in the same area…
One a master of unintended disaster, the other a master of intended (and I guess sometimes capricious) disruption of causality…..
Can’t be a coincidence that we see Wildfire streaking off. She senses a button that shouldnt be pushed in need of pushing.
Amazing ! I did not see that coming !
Go C Team ! C for Citywide-annihilation-minimum ! ;)
I love the “Charlie’s Angels” pose in the first panel :)
I did! If you look back far enough, I can prove it. Of course, I was expecting Wildcard (IS THAT HER NAME? I cannot remember at this point) to dumb luck or stumble bum her way into the situation somehow. It’s too bad Jamilla died in the refrigerator while house sitting, I’m sure she would have been thrilled to participate in the raid as well.
Thank you for helping me out and clearing that up :D
I’ll sit patiently here and wait for the uber A, B and C team crossover I didn’t know I wanted until now.
I think we’re about to lose some characters. Wildfire and a serious mission?
Nah, she already had a serious mission back when she obliterated a chunk of the Ossingo(?) outback from the face of reality itself.
If she squints any harder her face will implode on itself.
Also, just caught the Charlie’s Angels bit in the first panel. Nice touch considering all hell is about to break loose.
Ah, so now Deket and Eastwood interact. Wonder if any of the WMG for those two will be referenced.
Well clearly, if they knew who they were coming for, they would have just not bothered.
I imagine they’d have just skipped straight to the most probable conclusion of the situation and burned the place to the ground before entering. You know, in a “Fuck it, it’ll probably go to hell anyway” kind of way.
And now for the alternate reading of “Getting on like a house on fire”
Yay Wildfire’s back! And with her totally cool big sister!
*cheers for Wildfire and Sis*
Apart from Lother, Wildfire’s my favourite character. She reminds me of when I was in my first job – very enthusiastic, full of naivety, and trouble-causing in the eyes of others.
*Lothar! I meant to spell Lothar!
Me, I bet they’re half siblings or something.
I think the team was safer when the evil spider daemon was going to devour them.
Yay! It’s Team Crazyballs! Er, I mean, C-Team!
I was missing them without even realizing it. Maybe it’s the fact that they’re hilarious.
they look more like F-unit to me… I miss that comic. It’s too bad the zombies got them all in the end.
Thank god I found it the hard way considering google tags and wikifur seem to ignore searches for the comic.
Hmmm, I don’t remember 2/3 of this team. Let’s check the cast page!
Team leader, “-No- concept of restraint”, “armories problem”, yup that makes sense.
Next, “hot-headed whirlwind”, “poor impulse control”, “no understanding of the concept of restraint”, wow but that makes sense.
Let’s round out the team with the one I recognize, Wildfire: “Prone to massive collateral damage”, which basically translates to “no restraint”, which means I spy a pattern!
C-Team is composed entirely of folks with no restraint at all. I think C stands for Collateral.
Last seen in this comic
And the guy on the team is an expert interrogator. In a team that tends to leave no survivors due to collateral damage.
C stands for ‘cleanup’. Or is it ‘cleansing’, in an Exterminatus sort of way?
Honestly, I’m sure she would be a bit more enthusiastic if she saw anyone OTHER than Eastwood here. XD
Ten bucks says she’s Eastwood’s ex.
I bet that it’s not a relationship born from love but from simple need and hate.
I also bet that he didn’t sleep with her but with one of the members of her team…. probably Leyana…
Nah, Eastwood is kind of a prick, but I don’t think he’d do something like that.
Yeah, I’ve seen it posted on WMG of the comic’s tvtropes that Eastwood and Deket are fuck buddies and only occasionally meet to blow off steam because neither of them would be very desirable to the opposite sex.
Come to think about it, I suggested that only a reveal that Vitani and Deket are mother and daughter could save Virus at this point. Wouldn’t it weird if that were true, and that Vitani’s plan is to summon daemonic offspring that Deket had by Eastwood that Vitani hid for safety reasons?
Uh oh, remember the last “acquaintance” Eastwood had with a certain one-eyed badger? If this is the ex… i assume she’s the other side of the coin to the heathens. The “PURGE THE ALIEN!” type of zealot… then again she did meet East so she’s no pure child.
Just wait till she finds out what happened to virus, then the furrs really going to fly!
Well, at least they’ve got one person right for the job – the monastery needs to be taken down… and Wildfire has a great track record of doing just that.
I’m waiting to see if Virus gets purged for putting it into daemons willingly.
Was he really all that willing? After all he was stuck in a locked room with a demon spider woman she could have tied him up and had her way with him. And then he would not have been free to get away after…. Since he was in a no win situation he probably figured that going with the flow was the easy way out… give her what she wanted and try to get away. Which by the way worked…… to an extent… if Rogue hadn’t f**ked up they might have even gotten away.
He’s alive and his head is intact. The others have already heard he jumped her bones from the cultists. He’s practically admitted as such.
His survival is damning in itself, especially if he’s facing a puritan Inquisitor. Giving in to the Daemon is cooperation with the unholy. Partaking in their rituals had been reason enough to execute people, as happened in that tomb where those Goth teens sacrificed chickens.
So, purging. He joined their rituals. He’s heretical. Whet do we do with heretics?
Actually the kids in the tomb committed murder (as the chickens were classmates not barnyard fowl) and raised the dead of their own free will, hence the execution.
Virus was coerced in to it by being locked in a room with a daemon. He either got tied up raped and dead…. or got laid with a chance of escape. He can argue that he had to do it being an Inquisitor to find out more about the plans and to try to stop her.
So he took a path that gave him a chance to escape and warn the others. They would have gotten away clean if Rogue had not been an overconfident idiot. In a way he was in his own blundering way emulating Jamilla who DOES go into places of evil and sometimes has to join in to get information. That is what spies do.
He also is part of the Inquisition which as was stated when Lothar had to go to court for file sharing (if I remember correctly) that he is pretty much immune from any laws… maybe not all but sometime you have to do a dirty job to get what you need….
‘Course Virus will only think of these things to try and save his own skin… or once Team C is done with this place the only ones who will know will be his own team… though they may have no problem selling them out.
Chances are that nothing short of a surprise reveal that Vitani and Deket are mother and daughter can save Virus now.
Wait, wasn’t the interior of the monastery still getting warped by Vitani’s power? Or does that only apply the deeper you go?
sh’s like. OH….. it’s you….yeaaaaj… do we have to save you?
I wonder if she’s the one who’s boyfriend turned out to be a cultist?
Oh-ho I’ve been waiting for this day, also, happy annual gift day everyone
I also cannot wait to see everyone’s reaction to a certain someone’s return
Where is your avatar from? I really want to know. It has a very whispy sort of quality.
Erm, well the full picture is rather embarrassing, but I thought the face was cute and neat
… Does she have pupils?
Okay, that introductory line is *fantastic*. Is that original, or from somewhere else?
I am going to laugh my ass off if by some force of Lothar, the redhead has some sort of thing for Virus, yeah I know, fat chance of that happening considering who writes this comic, but it would still be kinda funny
When Nadia reminds me of someone with a bad temper.Ah yeah…me.
