It really take it out of you.</p</div> Sat, 18 Nov 2017 00:00:00 -0500 CVRPG - #3000, Part 65: Deep Below <div><img src=''></div><div><p>I'll be honest with you: I had to look up what a flange was. I just know I've heard it used in technobabble before and it sounded good. it does actually make sense once I looked it up.</p></div> Fri, 17 Nov 2017 00:00:00 -0500 DSWC: Heroes - #943: His Return <div><img src=''></div><div><p>Succubus is Dracula's loyal gal. All is minions are, which kind of explains why Richter is having such a hard time getting them to work for him in a full and proper manner.</p></div> Fri, 17 Nov 2017 00:00:00 -0500 CVRPG - #3000, Part 64: Down Further <div><img src=''></div><div><p>Darkmoon has watched a lot of Star Trek. I reference it a lot because I like Star Trek and I think it's funny to have him reference a show in the distant future that probably hasn't been on the air for hundreds of years. By that token a Doctor Who reference always work, and is seemingly applicable, so it amuses me further to have Darkmoon completely blow it off.</p></div> Thu, 16 Nov 2017 00:00:00 -0500 DSWC: Villains - #942: Fun Evening <div><img src=''></div><div><p>I mean, since I had everyone in town anyway, I may has well have them cross over, right?</p> <p>If the real Dark Lord is back, in some capacity, I wonder where Succubus's allegiance lies...</p></div> Thu, 16 Nov 2017 00:00:00 -0500 CVRPG - #3000, Part 63: Smell It <div><img src=''></div><div><p>As we know by now, Darkmoon can smell gold. I think we've actually established that he can smell a few varieties of treasure, but gold is the primary one he goes for. It does seem a little bad, my making a character I established as Jewish and also having him being obsessed with money and gold. Way to play to stereotypes. But I'm Jewish and I found it funny. So, kind of subverting the stereotypes in a way, I guess?</p></div> Wed, 15 Nov 2017 00:00:00 -0500 DSWC: Heroes - #942: Speaking Of <div><img src=''></div><div><p>Well, we're getting down to the last 50 comics. I can't draw it out too much, so I may as well get all the pieces in place at this point. Onwards for the big confrontation with Dracula, eh what?</p></div> Wed, 15 Nov 2017 00:00:00 -0500 CVRPG - #3000, Part 62: Dumb Moves <div><img src=''></div><div><p>There is never a bad time to loot. Looting is what heroes do. Sure they defeat villains and save farms and rescue people, but at the end of the day it's all a cover for their crippling kleptomania.</p></div> Tue, 14 Nov 2017 00:00:00 -0500 DSWC: Villains - #941: Quite the Lover <div><img src=''></div><div><p>I have to say, this is perhaps one of my favorite Richter comics, at least in a long time. Just the combination of his stupid, sexual bluster combined with his being called out so easily on it. Funny as hell.</p></div> Tue, 14 Nov 2017 00:00:00 -0500 CVRPG - #3000, Part 61: Toxic Problems <div><img src=''></div><div><p>As shown here, not everything is Darkmoon's fault. Most things are, sure, but once in a while he's not the cause of all problems. Of course, he let Angel on the ship, his ship, so it could be argued that, in a round-about way this was also Darkmoon's fault.</p> <p>So, uh... nevermind then.</p></div> Mon, 13 Nov 2017 00:00:00 -0500 DSWC: Heroes - #941: Confrontation <div><img src=''></div><div><p>The Legion corpses are stupid easy to kill. A fight between one of them and Dracula (even if he's a weaker, Legion-y Dracula) was never going to be fair. So this plays our pretty predictably, all things considered.</p></div> Mon, 13 Nov 2017 00:00:00 -0500 DSWC: Villains - #940: Difficult Task <div><img src=''></div><div><p>I'm not actually going to show them playing strip poker. Use your imaginations. Instead we'll cut away for a bit and go explore what's going on elsewhere...</p> <p>Richter is such a Richter, man.</p></div> Sat, 11 Nov 2017 00:00:00 -0500 CVRPG - #3000, Part 60: Upgrades <div><img src=''></div><div><p>Well yeah, although I think Spriocket's way of upgrading the ship was a little more controlled. Well, when she was just doing repairs at the start, not after he ship was blown up and it grafted onto Darkmoon's ship. That was, admittedly, a little less controlled.</p></div> Fri, 10 Nov 2017 00:00:00 -0500 DSWC: Heroes - #940: Front and Center <div><img src=''></div><div><p>Seriously, back when I brought Legion into the series in DSWC II, I really didn't think I'd be throwing Dracula's corpse into the demonic beast and then having him fight the other legion corpses. Like, this whole plotline came out of nowhere, but then that's what I like about writing my comics the way I do. Random shit like this keeps is strange and lively.</p></div> Fri, 10 Nov 2017 00:00:00 -0500 CVRPG - #3000, Part 59: No One Around <div><img src=''></div><div><p>I have no plans to get Darkmoon and Katrina back together. I dunno if anyone is still 'shipping them, but I think 800 years apart is more than enough time passions to cool, no matter how immortal the two of them may be. Sorry.</p></div> Thu, 09 Nov 2017 00:00:00 -0500 DSWC: Villains - #939: Fun Times Ahead <div><img src=''></div><div><p>I think this is the proper way to celebrate a win, wouldn't you say?</p></div> Thu, 09 Nov 2017 00:00:00 -0500 CVRPG - #3000, Part 58: Good Plan <div><img src=''></div><div><p>One would assume that the communications systems, like everything else, would be down while Gertie is rebooting. Plus, without proper shielding, I doubt any communications gear would work well in a high-radiation environment. So, yeah, that kinda explains that.</p></div> Wed, 08 Nov 2017 00:00:00 -0500 DSWC: Heroes - #939: Growing Powers <div><img src=''></div><div><p>This little arc is really starting to remind me of Rift Wars, with all the random Dracula showing up and attacking the heroes. It's a different spin on it here, of course, with the whole Legion aspect of it, but still. Shades of that arc over in CVRPG.</p></div> Wed, 08 Nov 2017 00:00:00 -0500 CVRPG - #3000, Part 57: Save or Kill? <div><img src=''></div><div><p>Hey, the man knows his weaknesses. It's not that he -can't- fly the ship. It's just that he probably shouldn't. And give him credit, he knows it (even if he has to have it gently pointed out to him first).</p></div> Tue, 07 Nov 2017 00:00:00 -0500 DSWC: Villains - #938: Not Over? <div><img src=''></div><div><p>Oh, it's probably over. It is fun to poke a little extra at Richter's revolving door to the afterlife, though. I really need to get that under control...</p></div> Tue, 07 Nov 2017 00:00:00 -0500 CVRPG - #3000, Part 56: Grab a Drink <div><img src=''></div><div><p>Admittedly I did say Darkmoon wasn't allowed in the tavern anymore. However, everyone has been captured and Gertie is rebooting. It does seem like the perfect time to steal a pint.</p> <p>Angel was just recently out in the vacuum of space. That was probably enough of that for him for a while, I'd figure.</p></div> Mon, 06 Nov 2017 00:00:00 -0500 DSWC: Heroes - #938: Must Needs <div><img src=''></div><div><p>What I really love is that Dracula is now one of the main characters over on the Heroes side while Richter and the evil clones are the main characters over on the Villains side. This comic really does wander anywhere it damn well pleases.</p></div> Mon, 06 Nov 2017 00:00:00 -0500 DSWC: Villains - #937: Shifting Sides <div><img src=''></div><div><p>I think Hanz really just enjoying being part of something, even if it was a stupid, petty fight. Better than always being on the sidelines.</p></div> Sat, 04 Nov 2017 00:00:00 -0400 CVRPG - #3000, Part 55: Free Drinks? <div><img src=''></div><div><p>Angel's just doing what I'd do. Not sure if I like what that says about me. Damn.</p> <p>I had to do the math on this. Dracula lived in the 1400s. Although some of the Castlevania games take place before this era (lookin' at you, Lament of Innocence), those don't refer to their villain as "Dracula", so we can comfortably say that the Belmonts didn't start fighting a vampire named "Dracula" until the 1400s (and no, we're not even going to consider the Lords of Shadow series).</p> <p>With this series being set in 2499, that would mean Dracula has been fighting the Belmonts (and their designated successors) for over 1000 years. So Katrina is factually accurate.</p></div> Fri, 03 Nov 2017 00:00:00 -0400 DSWC: Heroes - #937: Darker Forces <div><img src=''></div><div><p>So, wow, that turned quick, eh?</p> <p>Feels like at this point I should start referencing the Dracula side of Legion as actual Dracula again. And here I thought I wouldn't find another way to bring him back. It seems that no matter how hard I try, Dracula is as integral to this series as Richter. Huh.</p></div> Fri, 03 Nov 2017 00:00:00 -0400
