– Welcome back! It turned out I needed a few days off a lot more than I thought. In addition to attending the great Stumptown Comics Fest I spent my week off hanging out with friends and working on a short 10 page super hero comic. I also got a bit more art done for the Magical land of Yeld rpg. I got to go to Bridge City Comics for free comic day. I spent several hours playing Planetside 2. I ate at several of my favorite restaurants, including Lucky Strike. I spent a few hours talking about X-Men on Facebook. I saw Iron Man 3 with my brother Will. I walked to work 5 or 6 time since the weather has been so nice. So all in all, not a bad week! Time to get back to work!

– A little bit of Yeld trivia. The big ean looking dude shown here is a Fairy. The Fairies of Yeld are mostly professional soldiers that make up Dragul’s armies. We’ve seen them here and there in the comic, but I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned that they’re actually called Fairies, except in the Coloring Book. So now you know.
Why doesn’t the Prince just call himself the King?
His title is misleading. He’s not actually the Prince of Yeld, although some people do call him that. He’s the Prince of Vampires and the ruler of Yeld. he was meant to marry the Princess of Yeld, the Daughter of the last King, but she escaped him with the help of Urano and some others, and he was left without a legal claim to the throne. He could call himself King if he wanted, but I think he’s the kind of guy who likes everything to be neat and proper.
Well at least he has SOME decency… Now all we need to do is flatten that cod piece of his. XD
Maybe it would give him some humility. :3
Buuuut wasn’t she recaptured?
I think she just died? I don’t remember.
I went back and checked Urano’s story and it said the princess was recaptured. On the next page Marah asks if the princess was still alive but Urano replied that she was not, as it had happened a long time ago.
Oh. Well, that must be what happened.
Thanks Jake, for linking to my cake (and commenting) that I made! You have no idea how much I geeked out! Was a lot of work, but totally worth it in the end. =D
I’ll have to remember to post the picture of the original sketch – which my sister says looks awesome. The cake design changed due to time constraints. Also, looking forward to your next update.
I thought it was really cool. It also made me hungry!
One day, I’ll color in the sketch, and you’ll get to see it. And then one day, I’ll make the original design, and you’ll get to see that too.
“Slrrggz!” I hate it when I hear that sound. Another Batman fan goes to his doom…
I’m sorry but could you please sound out Slrrggz? I can’t tell what it sounds like and I want to make some sort of witless comment about it in good fun.
Have you ever seen the Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie? I haven’t, but I imagine if I were going to find out, that would be a good place to start.
This story… right now… is really intense…with the Slrrggz and everything!
I can stand the sight of blood and zombie gore, but the sound effect really brings out the darker side to this happy little tale! (not that that’s a bad thing.)
Wow, you guys really like that sound effect!
He heard the thug say he was an enforcer of the Prince, and we know he doesn’t like the Prince… therefore… filet-o’-fairy.
So this is how he met the innkeepers (see page 614).
I guess it’s too late for the “would you hit a man with glasses?” ploy.
Was chainsaw unicorn just hiding in the snow bank or did he tunnel up?
pretending on the time line in the story, CU could have been lingering by the door after he decided to stay.
That had been my thought. These people just happened to flee into the same area. CU probably fell asleep and got covered up when it snowed, and all the noise of the fight woke him up.
Mmmmm. Darker AND edgier.
Wait, those are faeries?
Some butt ugly faeries, then. Kind of big, too
After watching Pan’s Labyrinth, this doesn’t really surprise me. Minor spoiler, but it happens in like the first scene of the movie.
Pan gets out of the car for a second and sees a stickbug, but somehow recognizes it as a fairy right away. I dunno how she does it. They kind of explain… well, imply the answer by the end of the movie. That’s as much as I’m going to say on the subject.
yep, disney has certainly some explaining to do!
that’s gonna leave a mark…
the chainsaw unicorn was brutally struck down. as his body was brought before the prince, he was brought back to life as a….
ZOMBIE CHAINSAW UNICORN!!!
Love the origin story of the knight of chain, or chainsaw unicorn as a friend of mine calls him.
[Censored for graphic murderations!]
Isn’t Fairy Hide bulletproof? For that matter, we see the Knight of Chains cleave through Urano’s full plate armor. Does he have a Vorpal Chainsaw of left hand severing or something?
The Knight’s chainsaw is a magical weapon gifted by the Prince himself. Its pretty serious business. We’ll eventually find out more about it whenever the Knight finally returns.
