He’s gonna melt the cable but that was still pretty hardcore. Though probably not before he drags her back over that cliff-side.
Love the second panel!
Wow. Digging this page. So much.
Hmm, I’m just not seeing a projectile that size, shot from a handheld weapon, after crossing a canyon (and dragging a cable along with it), and with nothing sharp on it but the point, going all the way through the well-crafted vest he’s wearing, much less making it all the way through his intestines and out the other side. At worst he’d have a fairly shallow puncture wound and a really bad bruise.
I dunno, that hook looks pretty heavy, and if that hook flies fast enough to solve a falling zombie(?), I can imagine it arriving with enough force to do the job.
Oookay if you’re going to pick apart the physics of this page, hows abouts you start with the whole ‘flaming-horse-brought-back-from-the-dead’ thing? I’m preeeeetty sure that conflicts with physics and all the natural laws a wee bit more than a grappling hook. Just saying. 🙂
Our creator did say there were things coming soon that would boggle physics. Just sit back and enjoy the awesome.
*Pinches self* That blood spray (and the whole darn page) is just wonderful.
Bullet wound, grappling hook wound,…what’s next on the list of injuries that don’t slow Hunter down??
Maybe try an old-fashioned anchor fired from a cannon next? I mean, goddamn, how do you step up from a grappling hook wound?
I’ve got some ideas.
An axe to the face usually stops the unstoppable.
OH! Wow. Niiiice. But, um, this is either going to mean that Mr. Hunter has some way of healing himself (he’s undead/magical/whatever) OR we’re about to witness the death of a main character!! Either way, major stuff. So, why doesn’t he try to kill Vane? I mean, obviously she’s undead and can’t be killed by normal means, but couldn’t he have used his flaming sword on HER as he galloped past? It’s like he’d much rather run than fight. Why?
Hunter is mildly annoyed now. Might roll his eyes a little bit.
Not again… I always get this face! : P
Yeah it randomly chooses an av for you initially and assigns it to your email address; you’re stuck with Lawrence unless you use your own Gravatar. 🙁
I’m thinking he didn’t expect that, or maybe he did, just couldn’t get clear fast enough-in either case, he could pull her over the cliff, or she could yank him back. If she’s got the rope tied off to the downed Diamonds (poor horsie!) then she might have him good and proper.
WOW ouch! I love the artwork, very professional compared to a lot of the other comics I have found on ink outbreak
Well thank you kindly.
Looks comfortable, bro.
Yup! Comic ends at 3 books. I hope you’ve all enjoyed it; I know I have.
Oh that’s going to be inconvenient…
“Oh I love that tex mex chili, but it goes right through me! Get it? Huh?” *cricket chirp*
Wow, I almost started questioning her gun skills but this wasn’t bad.
Let’s see if/how he gets out of this quite unpleasant situation.
All this action and all this development, yet it still feels like we’re still in the prologue waiting for the opening titles to start.
I hope that’s a positive…? 🙂
I agree with this guy Just feels like theres way to much left unanswered for it to be close to the end.
That’s gotta sting.
Whoah, didn’t see that coming. This comic is freaking awesome.
Thank you so much!
GET OVER HERE!
Also, am I really the first person to make the painfully obvious Mortal Kombat joke?
Come on, internet. Step it up a notch!
Realm First! Mortal Kombat Joke!
Or is it? TrueBlue did say “Fatality” a coupla comments back. :p
Yeah, but “fatality” has ascended from being just a Mortal Kombat reference. At least on the internet, it is part of everyman’s vocabulary.
Owch… That looks like it hurts… A lot, She’s gotta be really pissed with him to do that. I wonder if she’ll yank him off his flaming steed.
I bet that bruises.
Jesus tap-dancing Christ that’s going to leave a mark.
Nice page as usual. (I love casually putting the weight of expectations on more or less strangers 🙂 )
That hole in Hunter’s gut really feels chunky, as I imagine a flesh wound like that would. Great texture work.
Although, I have to say that in the second panel it really shows that your backgrounds aren’t inked. There isn’t really a lot of contrast happening in/between the clouds and the cliffs, but if you obstruct the ink-blob of a horse, the lights and shadows really pop. Only noticed it because that panel has the ink blob and the background takes up the majority of the panel.
Yeah, this comic does feel like it’s just picking up speed. Maybe we’re conditioned by the predominant type of comics that drag. every. single. itty. bitty. little. tiny. detail. for ever. and ever. and on. and on. and simply do. not. end. ever. or at. all.
I was sort of expecting this to be a series of Hunter an Vane’s hijinks, each arc taking place in the next town over, while we get insight into their past. Which is what this comic is, I just expected a much slower pace, I guess. Was it something in the way the story unfolded that made me think that, or is it merely expectations imposed by works in this medium?
I don’t know, but if this comic ends this scene with Hunter forgetting that he can make lightsaber noises and cauterize wounds, I’ll probably have a “what, that’s it?” moment.
I’m damn sure of one thing though..Mr. John Henry Hunter no longer needs to be bothered with troubles from his appendix anymore, since Ms. Vane has graciously taken care of such problems permanently! You can just read John Henry’s lips in panel four shouting “My appendix!!!Damn nabbit! My appendix!”
He just looks kinda pissed! That gunshot wound in his shoulder sure didn’t bother him . This probaby isn’t going to either.
Ouch! holy steam-punk induced neuron sensors!! That blood splatter looks amazing and by that hook design it reminds of a miniature whaling harpoon. D’ARRR HE BLOWS!!! As of this page? *bows* EPIC is all I could say.
Oh man, he’s such a hard ass!
I see him yanking that grappling line… this is going to be a bumpy ride.
Ouch! That’s gotta hurt.
So I know this is an argument you can’t win because people feel strongly on both sides but I’ve noticed in this chapter you’ve significantly reduced the border filigree. I have to admit that I kind of miss all the fancy swirls and gears. That said you’ve also been breaking the border constraints (scenes extending beyond the border) more which makes for a more dramatic read and extends the impression of action. I admit that you can’t have it both ways though. It’s either ornate and structured or dramatic and simple. Not sure which I prefer yet but either way I’m still loving it. It’s kind of funny how little things like the tip of the grappling hook and blood spray extending past the border change the panel’s appearance entirely.
I also want to say your use of shadow/light in creating contrast detail has increased quite a bit in complexity since the beginning of this comic and definitely since Hell’s Corners(though I get they’re also different styles all together). I guess what I’m saying is… awesome art! 😀
I promise the ornate paneling will never go away altogether but I am using it a lot more sparingly, yeah; the complaint that it’s distracting isn’t without merit and anyway it tends to take a little longer to plan out if I do a decent job of it. That being said, there’re a few pages coming up that you might find more of a return to form.
Anyways thanks for the sharp eyes & the kind words. 🙂
Martyros actually makes a interesting point and brings up an idea I don’t think I’ve ever really seen. Using the borders to reflect the tone of the page is a brilliant idea.
But in this case, I think it might be fitting. We have a straight sequence of high-speed, intense actions; the whole page probably only takes place within 5 seconds. The lack of fancy border, when it was there before, makes the effect a lot more stark. I kinda feel like the border is for savoring or adding emotion. 🙂
Anyway, Squidbunny, love the art and the story. Keep it coming! And get the 3rd book published soon! 🙂
woah! awesome scene with the hook going through his tummy!
Oh man ouch ouch ouch
That 4th panel is one of my favorites of all time. And I just now noticed that *the watch* was about to come out of his vest pocket in panel 5. I love going back through the archives and noticing new details.
