Well this is awkward.

RUN AND LIVE!
run away as you can
“IGNORE THOSE TIGERS BEHIND THE CURTAIN!”

Anyone notice the evil face on the cloak?
no you’re not the only one…
No… no one has ever mentioned the face on the scarf before EVER. you are the first. **rolls eyes**
It’s always been G. I like to think it’s an homage to Kamina’s cape in Gurrw
I never noticed it until now. Guess I mistook it as wear and tear from battle.
We’re almost there. The big one-zero-zero!
The hype is real!
let the countdown commence
you know he could just have broke his head on the stone….
It wasn’t her intention to kill him, just kind of happened in the heat of the moment.
yeah but… he could had died in a grossless way…
Meh, no one’s gonna miss him. Besides he did a lousy job in his assassin work, so his boss might’ve killed him anyways.
Eh, he was trying to kill her so…
Also is that sigil like the town guard or something?
I doubt it. A town guard wouldn’t be trying to assassinate the daughter of a local general… More than likely, it’s the emblem of whatever guild or organisation he belongs to.
Without going back through the entire comic (yet), I’m going to go out on a limb and say that’s the most graphic thing we’ve seen so far.
(This is an excuse to go back and reread the comic, I’ll be back in a few hours.)
In panel four, where did the scarf go? Did it fall off his arm? Because it looked wrapped around there pretty good.
Yep it fell off.
Good luck at MC, hope you have a fun and productive time
First kill’s always rough. Only people who don’t have qualms are sociopaths with damaged emotional responses. Still her training and trauma-suppression is pretty impressive. Sesame doesn’t afraid of anybody.
Odd knife that guy has, looks more like an Aztec sternum-breaker/sacrifice knife than a real weapon. Not that it wouldn’t still do the job, of course.
It also depends on how the first kill is executed. This one was particularly messy.
Messy is an understatement. But we all might’ve seen or read worse.
I mean the guy could’ve been decapitated if Sesame had the chance.
I am about to say a phrase that has seldom ever been said in the history of any known language:
That cat just cut off her pony tail!
damn….that is one of the most brutal deaths i’ve ever seen in comics….right up there with the Reverse Flash in Flashpoint, Mallen in Iron Man Extremis, and the vast majority of the pages in Alan Moore’s Watchmen.
You mean like this (pay attention to the end: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RLM6kGfy4f4)?
Wait, wait, wait… If the scarf was probably the reason that make her go berserk on page 27 (http://uberquest.katboxad.net/comic/27-nightmare/). why her father ask her to get that thing in the first place?
and it seemed to move on its own the hamper her attacker
so instead of a Lord of the Rings scenario, we have……Lord of the Scarfs?
10/10 would definitely watch.
Appearances can be deceiving. ‘Tis the nature of artifacts.
And I’m more interested in these “gods” that forged the artifacts. Claire, here weary being there and then, contradicts the existence of any deity the people of Evyr may believe in. So the real question is: if it wasn’t gods, who was it?
I’m betting it’s the same with the whole Sauron-Necromancer plot. Remember Valmont? Maybe he had a good part of this scarf-making and maybe so did that lady at the tavern. This is just a theory though, but it could be plausible that the scarf itself wasn’t meant to be worn by just a mere mortal, it had to be someone who had great fears and pretty much emotionally incapable enough to see death, thus picking Sesame.
I doubt Velmont made those. He’s only 30 years old. For an object of power to become known as something all powerfull, forged by gods themselves, it would take a lot of time (example: peaces of Eden form Assassin’s Creed) Unless we’re talking about some kind of reincarnation. And the theory where the artifact chooses his host is interesting. As for that lady in the tavern: the symbol on her sleeve http://uberquest.katboxad.net/comic/50-future-trial/ is the same as the symbol on the letter Sesame got http://uberquest.katboxad.net/comic/43-anonymous-watcher/ . Someone is setting Sesame on the same path as Kibbles. But that’s a whole other theory.
Or possibly she threw it at him.
Would YOU want to risk something that powerful falling into the hands of the enemy? I wouldn’t!
Why hasn’t anybody mentioned the cloak/scarf seemed to move on its own in her defense?
one scarf to rule them all, one scarf to find them. one scarf to cover them all in darkness and bind them.
Sesame and Sauron as gonna have a tea party. :3
I wonder if Sauruman, Azog the Defiler, and the Witch King of Angmar will be there as well?
Nah. It won’t be a willy-nilly tea party.
There’s gonna be cakes, sugar, coffee and tea mixed with alcohol.
Voldemort might be there though, as for Vader too.
Hurray for Dark-Lord Happy Hour with Sesame. :3
It looks more to me like she just threw it into his face. I mean, look at the lower right corner of that panel. She clearly threw it at him!
Nice gore… It’s always nice to see some violence/action especially when there’s lots of blood
Have my way with you? Ha, he’d be Lucky he could even try to, by the way, where did that knife like object come from? Was it on the end of the storage container, where the scarf was in? Good luck and enjoy Mega Con!!
on the crypt she kicked him up and back and he got impaled
Sesame was born to be a fighter.
She cut her hair! CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT!!!!!!!!
As the Fine Brothers say:
“Like a bad-ass!”
Damn, that stage fatality tho! And just in time for MKX too!
What a way to die.
I’m sure he got a kick out of it.
And cue the James Bond theme!
I’m sure the message went right through him.
I gotta say, I stumbled unto this by accident, but now I’m addicted to it. Cant wait till the next page/episode.
welcome to the saga
I realize they aren’t sophisticated enough to have DNA testing in this reality, although I’m sure there’s some form of voodoo or tracking spell that can be used against Sas… But, leaving evidence at a crime scene is a bad idea. While I’m sure whatever passes for rat like creatures (Fairies? Brownies? Workshop Elves?or Barlowe; the general wingnut) will use her hair as nesting material in short order, I can’t help but think she’s painted a rather large target on her back and set herself up for future drama or mind control.
What’s up with people cutting their hair whenever they have experienced a groundbreaking and lifechanging event?
I get why Mulan did it. But everyone else better explain themselves.
The characters that do cut of their top knot’s or ponytails are usually are of asian decent, so I’m sure it has some ancient cultural or historical reference I am unaware of. Maybe it’s some form of symbolism like the ritual for becoming a monk by cutting your hair into the form of a halo. Supposedly it is permissible for Nazirites (like samson) to cut their hair in times of grief, illness, or sorrow. And Indians from india believe it is permissible to cut your hair on thursdays without suffering from negative karma. I can also imagine killing someone would violate some sacred contract with God, so maybe it has to do with atoning for one’s sins.
oh yeah, and didn’t we see that a few times in Avatar The Last Airbender and Legend of Korra- of course we did and that further proves your point….although in the case of the characters in both series, it was done as a way of changing their appearances so as to be less recognizable.
I’ve also read it in Ranma and Kenshin fanfiction before they went ronin on multiple occasions.
That all makes sense, thanks for your input ^^
Or maybe, in this case, she cut her hair so her oponents can’t grab it like this guy did.
Not into furries, but Sesame is still quite cute.
Alex and VP Joe Biden have something in common; they both have foot-in-mouth disease.
Sounds like Art’s jumpiness is legendary. Wonder what it’d be like sitting next to him on a train.
Probably fine until the whistle blew.
