Xenophobe was a action-packed game and if we're gonna parody it right, I've got to bring the hordes after our heroes again and again and again. It's only right.</p></div> Mon, 25 Sep 2017 00:00:00 -0400 DSWC: Heroes - #920: Boom! <div><img src=''></div><div><p>Well, we were pretty much headed for this. Not just because the two clones have so quickly grown apart in such a short time span, but also simply because having two of these fuckers running around is just too much. Gotta pair my Richters down some, man.</p></div> Mon, 25 Sep 2017 00:00:00 -0400 DSWC: Villains - #919: No Time to Chat <div><img src=''></div><div><p>You know, I really haven't used many backgrounds from Haunted Castle. Although they aren't as colorful as some of the later games in the series, the backgrounds did feature nice large, detailed sprites. I should have used more of these backgrounds in the run...</p></div> Sat, 23 Sep 2017 00:00:00 -0400 CVRPG - #3000, Part 25: Bigger Threats <div><img src=''></div><div><p>The little (or big, in this case) bots aren't the only threat we'll see soon, as I have... other plans. But they were familiar in this context and allowed for a quick cliffhanger as I quickly amp the pressure. Besides, I dunno that we're really ready for a mid-boss just yet...</p></div> Fri, 22 Sep 2017 00:00:00 -0400 DSWC: Heroes - #919: He Returns <div><img src=''></div><div><p>Well, we now have the really evil Richter back in town to join the moderately good Richter. Remember, though, that neither of these guys are the real Richter.</p> <p>Somewhere along this way this stupid little comic got really complicated...</p></div> Fri, 22 Sep 2017 00:00:00 -0400 CVRPG - #3000, Part 24: Crawling in the Dark <div><img src=''></div><div><p>Hard to know if Claudette was being dumb or just playing dumb. I tend to lean to the latter for her, as she's so sarcastic most of the time, but it's honestly hard to tell.</p></div> Thu, 21 Sep 2017 00:00:00 -0400 DSWC: Villains - #918: Here They Come <div><img src=''></div><div><p>I could have the good clone fight Richter, but that would spoil raking Cornell over the coals once more. I can't deprive us of that.</p></div> Thu, 21 Sep 2017 00:00:00 -0400 CVRPG - #3000, Part 23: Bigger Issues <div><img src=''></div><div><p>As we laid out way back when before the Siren was taken over by Gertie, there are really only three decks on the ship (four if you count the top-most observation area). Engineering is the bottom deck, Deck Three... or at least it should be, but as observant readers might have noticed, Angel and Claudette managed to land on a deck lower than Engineering. So... yeah, that's odd.</div> Wed, 20 Sep 2017 00:00:00 -0400 DSWC: Heroes - #918: We're Heroes <div><img src=''></div><div><p>You may be barking up the wrong tree here, Hanz. In the short time they've existed, one of the clones has gone very far in the direction of "good" and, it seems, the other has gone very far in the direction of "bad", possible to balance each other out. OG Richter is the "neutral" setting, and that's really not saying much.</p></div> Wed, 20 Sep 2017 00:00:00 -0400 CVRPG - #3000, Part 22: Going Down, Down, Down <div><img src=''></div><div><p>It's interesting trying to setup the kinds of layouts I normally do in a constrained layout like this. I can still make it work, like here, blending the panels together, but I have to do it while follow the tight rules of the format. It's a fun challenge.</p></div> Tue, 19 Sep 2017 00:00:00 -0400 DSWC: Villains - #917: The Horde <div><img src=''></div><div><p>Hey, it's Darkie. You know, Katrina's familiar from CVRPG. Well, it's probably Darkie. DSWC would likely take place after CVRPG so there's a very real chance this is Darkie.</p> <p>I'll be honest, though. At this point all bats make a cheeping noise in my head, so I just decided to roll with it.</p></div> Tue, 19 Sep 2017 00:00:00 -0400 CVRPG - #3000, Part 21: Long Way Down <div><img src=''></div><div><p>Hey, he's already been down there once. Should be easy enough for him to survive another trip down. Plus, this time he's not fighting the pull of a rip into the vacuum of space. Easy sauce, right?</p></div> Mon, 18 Sep 2017 00:00:00 -0400 DSWC: Heroes - #917: Lovely Location <div><img src=''></div><div><p>She is a Black Mage. Whatever else she may be -- a hero, a woman, a leader of the community -- she's still standards to uphold. Black Mages own creepy labs where they run weird experiments. If she didn't do that she'd be little more than a White Mage in the wrong colors.</p></div> Mon, 18 Sep 2017 00:00:00 -0400 DSWC: Villains - #916: Big Plans <div><img src=''></div><div><p>Man, Richter is being lead right along down the path, all so he can get a pleasure palace. Which, really, when you think about it, sounds like the most Richter way to become an evil warlord I can think of.</p></div> Sat, 16 Sep 2017 00:00:00 -0400 CVRPG - #3000, Part 20: Talk Like a Bat <div><img src=''></div><div><p>Angel, of course, was running all this way just to say his dumb line. Because that's what Angel does. And as we established a long while back, he has a preternatural sense for when to go somewhere and say something crass. It's his magic power.</p> <p>I've really had them standing in front of these elevators for a while...</p></div> Fri, 15 Sep 2017 00:00:00 -0400 DSWC: Heroes - #916: More Shopping <div><img src=''></div><div><p>Hey, the evil Richter clone works for evil demons. Why wouldn't he go to an evil shop keeper? It all just makes perfect sense.</p> <p>Hanz need to grow some self-respect.</p></div> Fri, 15 Sep 2017 00:00:00 -0400 CVRPG - #3000, Part 19: Pause to Refresh <div><img src=''></div><div><p>Sprockets is right. He didn't exactly leave her with any ideas as to how to get down. You know, besides the stairs. Like, seriously guys, they run through the whole ship.</p> <p>Although come to think of it, did you ever see anyone take the stairs in Star Trek. It's like once people developed starships they lost the ability to climb inclines.</p></div> Thu, 14 Sep 2017 00:00:00 -0400 DSWC: Villains - #915: Where to Go <div><img src=''></div><div><p>I mean, Richter is off building his Pleasure Palace so why would he bother sticking around here, right?</p> <p>I will admit that I didn't realize the jury was in the background of this scene until I came in to make this comic. And then I realized I had to explain why they were still around in the last comic. This works well enough, and then we can quickly walk away from this scene and pretend it never happened.</p></div> Thu, 14 Sep 2017 00:00:00 -0400 CVRPG - #3000, Part 18: He Can Fly! <div><img src=''></div><div><p>A number of the characters in the comic can fly, actually. Darkmoon and Angel obvious, but Katrina (and thereby Claudette as well) can magically float themselves. Although Claudette doesn't really fly so much as she pushes herself around via force of will. She's effectively a magical specter, one that can make herself tangible or not at will. Quite the odd character.</p> <p>On the other end of the spectrum is Golem who is so heavy I didn't even make him a jump frame. That dude should not move vertically without a lot of safety harnesses and a fair bit of help.</p></div> Wed, 13 Sep 2017 00:00:00 -0400 DSWC: Heroes - #915: Legion Crossing <div><img src=''></div><div><p>You can't trust anyone with a laugh that evil. That's a rule.</p></div> Wed, 13 Sep 2017 00:00:00 -0400 CVRPG - #3000, Part 17: Any Way Down <div><img src=''></div><div><p>Okay, I guess that's one way to keep them from using the stairs. Makes sense...</p> <p>Remember, Darkmoon can turn into a bat, so yes, he can fly down. I do hope he's mastered turning back into a human by this point.</p></div> Tue, 12 Sep 2017 00:00:00 -0400 DSWC: Villains - #914: Pleasurable <div><img src=''></div><div><p>A Pleasure Yurt: small, but cozy. Romantic, in it's own way.</p> <p>A Pleasure Island: exotic and, at the same time, pun-fully delightful.</p> <p>A Pleasure Dungeon: I mean, this speaks for itself.</p> <p>Seriously, I could go on and on with these ideas.</p></div> Tue, 12 Sep 2017 00:00:00 -0400 CVRPG - #3000, Part 16: Spoils of War <div><img src=''></div><div><p>I dunno why they're so hung up on not taking the stairs. I mean, Angel showed it's possible. I just think it's a funny quirk to think that they've so quickly settled into being on a ship and having a convenient elevator. I'm sure we'll get past this quick.</p> <p>Just remember, at the end of battle it's only cool to take the spoils off corpses when the bodies vanish and there's a victory fanfare. Otherwise it's just looting.</p></div> Mon, 11 Sep 2017 00:00:00 -0400 DSWC: Heroes - #914: Makes His Own Way <div><img src=''></div><div><p>I have plans for the Richter clone, and part of those plans are to get him over on Richter's side of this story. This is about as elegant as way as I could find to do that...</p></div> Mon, 11 Sep 2017 00:00:00 -0400 DSWC: Villains - #913: Decisive Leadership <div><img src=''></div><div><p>I wonder if Dracula had any pleasure palaces in his castle. We certainly never get to see any of them if he does. Just Chapels and prisons and dungeons.</p> <p>Wait, that last one could count...</p></div> Sat, 09 Sep 2017 00:00:00 -0400
