Surprise! HAPPY HALLOWEEN! This non-Sluggy related holiday art comes from Leah's Inktober sketchbook. Working without a pencil is SCARRRRRY to her! So it works double for Halloween!
Ref: Lysinda brought Sam in. And midnight.
Ref: Bag-o-Sam (last seen)| Aylee Kiki and Teresa (and Zhoas unseen)| Bag Gone (yes, 'footprints', Sylvia didn't fly the entire time).
Ref: Vrykolakas first mention | last seen.
Feels like a vampire-themed holiday season to me! I was going to do something with drinking turkey-blood or having some vamps garnish their A.B.Negative with cranberry sauce, then thought better of it. I was also going to have Drake and Tyler lead a hostile takeover of Thanksgiving from General Gohblair but thought that might be read as canon!
HEY! Make your own GENERAL GOHBLAIR! HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
Fun Vrykolakas Facts: Vryko-masters can turn to mist! Vryko-vamps can't fly, although they can jump very high and far. (This was firmly established in the Defenders exclusive Sampire comic book. However it sure looks lke Vrykos are flying here. *Pshaw*, they must be jumping.)
Ref: "Agata saw me" | Dr. Vistuvius tipped off Muffin a long time ago (and thus was responsible for Lysinda's desperation).
Ref: When last we saw Minion Master Hideout #13...
Ref: FROG First Seen, Last Seen. Drake & Tyler Last Seen
Ref: Frog "swallowed" a brain enhancing bug that came from here!
non-ref: For some reason Stefano reminds me of a cartoon young Leah watched called Charlie and Lola. It's creeping me out, man!
Ref: "Full House" Chapter Finale (Week1) (Week2) | Circle Chapter Intersection.
Minion Master: First Seen | Classic | Last Seen (out of costume).
Defenders Ref: What Garlic does to Vorpyr was established in the Sampire Comic Book.
Sidenote:Riff thought he attacked Sam with Garlic once! But the pizza was garlic-free.
Ref: Sam Flashback 1 | Sam Flashback 2.
Hey all! So I think I may have accidentally established in the past Vrykolakas being somehow susceptible to garlic. That is bad because I think of them as immune to garlic. This might be one of those RetCon moments; I look forward to the Reactions Forums for today!
The filler I warned was coming Friday SNUCK UP AND ATTACKED YOU on Wednesday! Sneaky Vrykos!
I might address this in a news story later but here's some responses to the Reactions forums for the last two days:
"I thought Izzy was younger!" Crap! That right there is a GENUINE PETE SCREW UP!
"Hope this flashback doesnt take long!" No, this won't take long, especially adding the 'car chase' as a flashback narration device! Shaved weeks off the script!
"What's up with the car chase? It makes this confusing!" Crap. Well at least I'm not burning out... crap-crap.
Ouch! Kinda over half-toned the comic page within the comic! Sorry bout' dat!
Ref: "...I think we can deal" | How the chopper could have been there so fast: Sasha had Hereti-Corp in position. (Panel 5)
Ref: When last we saw Kusari's dropped chain-stake.
Ref: Riff's Wife? | Riff's Wife?!? | Killed Brother?!?!?.
Ref: When we last saw Tweety | Torg knows Sylvia (and Sam might have remembered that... but it's Sam).
Hey everybody! Sorry, but this break was needed. The irony that it's April Fool's Day is not lost on me but one has nothing to do with the other.
In case I lost you with toady's and yesterday's comic...
So the gang is making their escape from the Warehouse. As we know, Hereti-Corp has a satellite trained on their location and Schlock wants to know exactly what's going on.
When last we saw Squishydodo he was out in the field making another van "disappear". So Torg called him in to help them "disappear" as well (Operation Left Sock, because we all know Left Socks vanish from he dryer all the time. But only the left socks.). The gang abandoned the HC van "under the tunnel," changed their appearance, and headed off in different directions to throw any observers off the scent (vamps or hereti-corp). Then if all looked clear they'd rendezvous back at the home base beneath the Equinox Casino.
I thought I could communicate this quickly while showing Torg's emotional state and shore it all up in two comics. I appear to have confused everybody I the processes, and in this case I'm not sure how to fix it. I'll think of something. But for now you know.
Ref: Yes, Philinnons bodyguards had sunglasses and guns (and jumped really high but thats another story)
Ref: Riff & Izzy Talk | "Unsecure" | Mistake/Softspot.
Ref: Pierre (and 'sensing' Pierre) (1) (2) (3). Last time we saw the Sam Singers...
Second Ref: It takes two Vorpyr to make a third Queen (or King) and it takes that royal blood to make more Vorpyr.
