Ooooooo, now we see why he’s regarded so highly.
I knew he must have been ‘special’ in some manner. He just proved that not only can he take control of a bad situation, but he has a ‘extra boost’ like Sesame does.
Two differences tho.
First, his ‘extra’ is apparently agility and speed, while Sesame’s is strength.
Second he has MUCH more conscious control of his ‘extra’.
Something tells me Kylar is NOT someone to mess with in battle.
“Second he has MUCH more conscious control of his ‘extra’.”
Lucky for Joel.
Hah, knew someone was gonna make this joke.
Kylar probably practiced using it, Sesame of course was never encouraged to because her’s was dangerous to others and she would’ve been tempted to misuse it while she was younger.(and her father died before her training could start…)
Well that eyeshot will sting in the morning!
HE LIVES TO SNARK ANOTHER DAY PEOPLE! 😀
If that didn’t cure Franciss perma-bitchface, I don’t know what will.
This is a very exciting page. Great work, guys! Kylar is just awesome!
I don’t want to e that guy but technically there’s only one arrow to be knocked, crossbows fire bolts, not arrows. ¯_(ツ)_/¯
And I don’t want to be that guy, but technically you “nock” an arrow, not “knock” it.
Yes I know. Though I thought that’d be too much text to add, “JESTON, AINSLEY, NOCK YOUR ARROW, LOAD YOUR BOLT. AIM” It’s a high tense situation too.. I’m sure Ainsley knows what he means.
I think any version is fine, but while it’s being discussed, heres one other option:
“TAKE AIM” is pretty short too =)
Showing off some skillz
Get it together Francis, new kid makin ya look bad
He sure is a nimble fellow ain’t he?
Yes good idea. Shot more arrows at the giant savage beast. Im sure that wont piss it off any more then it already is. Let the arrows fly!
I don’t know why, but for some reason the fight music from Star trek keeps popping up in my head with this one….and it makes absolutely no sense because that music doesn’t fit in here at all.
is it weird if im hearing Beethoven’s fifth symphony instead????
yeah, but it’d be even weirder if it was American Pie by Don Mclean
that is diffidently weirder
Kylar is secretly The Flash
But if Kylar is the Flash, then.. Who’s Barry Allen? (insert generic Iluminati meme here)
maybe he’s Wally West or Bart Allen
Kylar is EVERYBODY
Kylar, stop speed hacking, this server is cheat-free. =w=
that thing must be pretty tough to resist a head shot like that.
That was a rather abrupt scene change. Thought I missed something.
Friggin speedhax ;p
Back in Comic 83, it was implied that Francis and Ainsley had worked with Kylar before, and yet Francis seems genuinely surprised at the demonstration of Kylar’s speed. Which sort of implies that either A) he has never had to use it before in his presence or B) he has never used it because he was keeping it a secret or C) he has never used it because it comes with some sort of price or disadvantage. I find C highly unlikely and A is possible but again I doubt it.
Which leaves us with B, he was keeping it a secret for some reason. Could it be that Fera with such powers are looked down upon? That may also explain the reaction Eiran had when he learned Sesame had such an ability, at the time I had assumed it was because he had feared it might corrupt her or she might not be able to ever control it, but what if it was because of how he knew she would be treated if the word got out?
If this is true then that makes two big secrets Kylar has been keeping, I wonder which one is considered to be more frowned upon Evyr, his sexual preference or the special power. To think he has accomplished so much, without ever needing to use that kind of ability, he should be very proud (assuming I am not spouting nonsense of course).
If it is nonsense, it is very well considered nonsense.
last panel: you’re aiming with the wrong eye, kid!
he’s a rookie cut him some slack
He might be left-eyed and right-handed though.
if all else fails, go for the eyes
I repeated nock your bolt in my head and for some reason it sounded dirty
If a recruit is training to use a bow that is especially difficult to shoot, is he in the school of hard nocks?
I’ll show myself out now.
probably a good idea
Don’t worry, I won’t let the door nock me on the ass on the way out.
Okay, *now* I’m going.
wow it has been so long I had to reread where we left off here
It just goes to show: Rule one: Cardio.
And they just remembered rule two: Double Tap.
It still surprises me how often that list comes in handy.
anyone else notice that the site has a new background?
We’re in the process of updating. The previous background was a bit too busy and clashed with the header. We’re waiting on our webmistress Mihari to finish upgrading things before changing the header-banner. We’ve also updated the Cast-page! More characters to come there aswell.
(hums Game of Thrones theme with glee)
If I didn’t know any better I would say they are planning to make a physical book soon….
What gave you THAT idea? *shrugs* :B
Alright, back to our intrepid explorers, is Wuuh part cheetah? I’d run as fast as I can too with a beast like that after me. By the way the facial expressions on the characters are absolutely terrific. They certainly convey the story almost without words.
Sorry, meant to say Frances not Wuuh, forgot his name.
Also love the blurred images of Kylar, really gives a great impression of speed.
