WIP today. Coloured page tomorrow. I promise.

I was super busy at the convention so I'm suffering from a bit of fallout from it. The con went great, though! Over the three days I did 18 commissions. I started drawing within the first hour of the first day and I didn't stop until the convention ended. It was great fun!

Almost didn't see the person with blue hair slip in. Hope she's well-armed. Hope she's here to help, because while this is hilarious, it also looks like it's going to go downhill shortly..

Actually that's 'Leopold' going to check on the guard that Cato and Kyler stole the battery from.

Which is going to be no good once he reports back that the battery is missing.

Either way, downhill is about the only direction this can now go (for both parties).

Did anyone else notice what appears to be blood slopping about the rim of 'ol El Jeffe BodyParts metal jaw? I can't imagine that's something he's planned, be he seems awfully calm for having that much blood leaking when it probably shouldn't be.

It sounds like we're in for a bit of a space battle soon!

He's always kiiiiiinda leaked. But yes. He's losing many precious fluids. Either that or he's leaking in anticipation (that sounds much dirtier than I mean it to...)

As for being calm about it, I'd imagine that once in a while he drinks an oil/blood/hydraulic fluid smoothie provided by his cronies and he's good to go for another little while.

And hooray for space battle! Rhea's gonna mess some folks up!

Thanks! I rather like the look of your comic, too!

Poor Rhea probably knows it's too obvious that she's bluffing...she'd have moved by now if she could, or at least blown Jeffe away rather than bandy words around...

I gotta read back now and remember who Gellrich is...
joeyballast edit delete reply
I don't she's particularly used to bluffing like this.

First time Gellrich's mentioned is on this page:

I think the only other person who says the name is our cyborg friend, so not really much information about him at the moment other than he's 'in charge' in some way or another.

So, I'm through! Unfortunately. I would love to already read on. But it's page-marked and all :D I will definetely read on. I love your style, and I love the story and the characters - especially Catos and Kylers relationship is really funny. And I'm really curious on how the cyborg-lady will integrate into all of that (is she really a cyborg or is it an armour she COULD theoratically step out of?). Anyway... also really curious how that whole computer-story comes out. And I feel like Cato is really happy about the new way his implant works. Did the computer he was connected to change it that way? And for what reason? Is it really that legendary monster that changed him? Or rather "the lantern"? I am really curious! I want to read on :D
I'm in love!

I'm so glad you like it! I promise all questions will be answered (sooner or later!) Though I may have to soon spend another Nanowrimo continuing the story :)

Thanks for reading!

Man, this merc is digging his own grave messing with Cato's mother.

Oh, you have NO idea.

Whenever he gets close to the bottom someone hands him another shovel.
