And we’re back! Let’s do this thing.
Calgary Expo was amazing! The new booth did really well, had great sales, met lots of cool people.
Took a few photos, check em out on Perfectly Chaotic’s Facebook.
Amidst all the humor and tomfoolery, I had forgotten that this world was also pretty grimdark…
It’s a WH40K homage, what did you expect?
To be fair it’s not really that dark. I mean some 40k stuff would have the guy alive! (and not “oh I have a body” but the “freaking brain in tube of constant agony!”)
Also I can’t tell which side is worst? Should we be angry that at our gray friend for messing around with said object… or the fact she gave it to him considering EVERYONE KNOWS HIS REPUTATION!!!! Seriously!
What exactly tells us the brain ISN’T still alive? I’d think that dying would make the null-field go out.
Granted, they do seem to have pared away the non-essential brainmeats, but there could still be enough in there to experience the horror and/or agony of their situation.
I knew “culexic” sounded familiar… Cool variation :)
Nadia will need to work out a lot of stress once this job is done !
I fully expect Nadia to petition Schaeffer to launch an exterminatus at the home base of the main cast, while the cast is there, for the good of the world.
She won’t succeed, but she’ll probably at least try.
Hell, he might let her. That’d be interesting to see them worm their way out of dying in-
Wait. This is the last arc.
Well, I say she’d TRY…
Because of the reams of blackmail material the main cast has on Schaeffer.
I suppose they do probably have backups outside their base that would survive a localized Exterminatus and auto-send en masse upon the team’s death, but he might have a plan for that. We’ll see what happens, though I don’t expect things to be tied off that drastically – I’m expecting more like they sit down on the couch and resume non productivity, though I guess being fired could happen…
We’ll just have to wait and see. That’s the most fun option anyway!
Look at that servitor! It’s such a ham. Trying to stay in shot through the whole comic.
Culexic. Hah. Clever :p Didn’t expect such a direct WH40K reference.
Does this mean that the Culexic now has brain damage? I await the chaos.
(I have no WH40K knowledge, so I probably just made a fool of myself…)
Jer gives a good summary below. If you’d like details, the following sites have them, the latter being far more formal.
You’re warned, there’s a lot of lore to be found from those pages’ links. Click nothing unless you have time to kill.
Thanks! :) *saves it for those do nothin’ days*
(Which is pretty much everyday due to mass procastination)
For those wondering what the “WH40k reference” is
In the Warhammer 40’000 universe, there are “assassin temples” where very specialized kinds of assassins are trained. For example the “Vindicare Temple” train super snipers and the “Callidus Temple” train shapeshifting infiltrators.
One temple train the “Culexus” assassins who have a special gene that gives them an aura that people with psychic abilities can’t bear and daemons can’t affect…
you forgot the Eversor and the two sub category ones Vanus and Venemun…..
Even a robot is ashamed of you, Virus. That’s what kind of hussy you are.
Will he lick his finger now if I offer him a tenner?
So the question is: how much longer can Nadia stay in Eastwood’s presence before she develops a brain aneurism? Because she looks really close in those last two panels.
Bets, anyone? I’m thinking seven minutes, maybe less, before she goes ‘splodey.
Nah I’m thinking three minutes given that it is Eastwood.
Little do they know, in the minutes following Virus escape, Vitani has laid the egg sack of Thrackerzod. A vile daemonic creature so totally epic on the weighing scales of evil that it lives within the shadows of the walls and can exist in the dark places where only dreams dare to go. Defeat for Vitani is as nothing for not long after this day will Thrackerzod be born, and eventually look like a totally normal unicorn and not a daemonic creature concieved in a water spout.
And it shall be killed randomly by one of the guys in a bout of bad driving, or something.
I don’t know, Thrackerzod seems like the type that would welcome death if only for the potential for rebirth and the ability to convert Twilight Sparkle into a dead pony.
Then again, an accident doesn’t give one time to carve runes unless that was part of Thrakerzod’s plan to convert all the residents of a city into the cannon fodder needed to produce a philosopher stone. And, I could totally see that happening with help from Who’taloo and Apple Gloom…
Vitani huh? lets cuff your virus just incase your under her control
I love the expressions on their faces when the freak. Props to the artist.
Easts face is priceless, a mixture of rage, jealousy and fear, perfect.
