Smithson Thus Far... ·


This is the first of two times that Victorian Mell beats the crap out of an enormous monster at Helen's command. She's like an attack dog in this storyline. I don't think present-day Helen ever has present-day Mell this well trained.

I cannot stress enough that the Victorian story was mostly made up as I went along. However, even in the earlier installments I knew Madblood was lying about having invented the fish craft. I mean, just look at his lying beardy face.

Eventually I stopped drawing those creepy lips on the Hapax Legomenon, but not soon enough.

So It Begins (soitbegins) says: Mell's grin is great! Creepy, but great.
NigaiAmai Yume (nigaiamai_yume) says: "Extend the hand of human friendship" reminds me of my first Vampire LARP - I went around asking people that annoyed me if they wanted to be my "bunny".

Aaron Shades (prof_tinker) says:

Oh, stop complaining Leon. I find it makes the final chapter so much more satisfying when they finally get there.

And for the record: The hand of human friendship is PAINFULL.

Joseph Abbott (faxpaladin) says: Hey, when all you have is a bazooka, everything looks like a tank...
