Let's get to itPrevious thread >>124555929
Ignore the previous thread, my autism couldn't let the botched up link stand
>>124580703LETS GO ANON YOU CAN DO IT
press F for secondary mentor character in the last threadHe died doing what he loved, jobbing horribly,
Remember to bump if you're reading
>>124580828They'd better expand on him after the fact later. He was such a waste of time
>>124580828I didn't see the point of him dying. Still hilarious.
thank you anon this is great
>>124580828>mentorHe was actually peers with Erica
>>124580703Thank you OP!
>>124580828Train your whole life and go down in a second.Tragedy and comedy so tightly wound.That's horror.
>>124581034I'm digging their style. They look like a bunch of prep school assholes.
>>124581203Its going to be an absolute slaughter
The people saying that the monster designs were pretty generic made me think that this was the explanation, it was just some dumb shit a kid came up with and it turned into a real thing.Could just be reading too much into it
I wonder if this is gonna be Crazies style where military / St. George just execute everyone in the town?
>>124581225It's a pretty interesting take on the "ancient conspiracy with a pretentious name". I don't think I've seen it before
>>124581408See you next Tuesday
>>124581408 Well I know a cough drop isn't going to fix that.
>>124581562RIP, badass dumbass.
>>124581657I have a weakness for sheriffs who wear their hat at all times and say "Aw, hell."
>>124581225is there a rationale for why you can't shoot the things with guns
>>124581720Since the monsters seem to be emotion based, you can only hurt them with emotional weapons. When Erica and the kid went weapon shopping, they deliberately grabbed stuff that looked "scary"That's the theory anyway
>>124581720Guns aren't scary enough in the rural Midwest. You have to use weapons that inspire visceral fear. A nasty ass chainsaw. A hand axe. Hedge Clippers. Stuff that slasher villains use. You have to really mean it when you try to kill monsters that feed on psychic energy.
>>124581382Yeah that's a little better, I guess
>>124581789>Guns aren't scary enough in the rural MidwestSo if one popped up in England or San Francisco they could just shoot it?
>>124580800I think we're deep enough into this comic that we should know the horror "rules" by now, but the behavior of the monsters still feels all over the place. They don't attack adults except when they do, they're blind and attracted to sound except when they can smell you, you're safe as long as you don't yell except when you're safe anyway, etc.
>>124581470this bitch really killing a nightmare made flesh with a pipe
>>124581836I don't know. It'd be interesting to find out!
>>124580924Nah they say in the secret society clubhouse meeting that he was supposed to be in charge of her, and he's the one who pulled all the strings with the hire ups at first presumably, he's obviously above her.
Tommy... had a hard life
>>124581019This page has dangerous amounts of shitpost energy in it
>>124581958>Shut up and get back into your octopuskek
>>124581897Is it me or does Erica look like Florence Pugh ?
>>124581544>uphold the secrecyYes because murdering a whole fucking town is something nobody will notice.
>>124582032I'm liking the comic, but honestly I can't take the Order seriously at all
>>124582032Dunno you can make a up couple reason why a entire town is dead. Staged wild fires are perfect for this situation.
My main takeaway here is that I really want some musclegirl art with Erica
>>124582144>>124582144the white masks are still going to kill everyone
>>124582164You sure about that?
>>124581382Okay this clears up some of my gripes with the idea, not bad.
>>124582215hope the poor lad doesn't get stuck in the big house forever or that he at least doesn't get shanked
>>124581408>Sorry, this story only has room for ONE fish out of water protagonist for the readers to relate to!
And that's the end of the first arc, who knows where the story is going to go from here
But we're not done yet, we got two issues to catch up with the series
>>124582331Who the fuck is that ? Erica ?
>>124582241Let's have him eat gummy worms, it'll make him look like even more of an asshole
>>124582405what's the benefit between killing a monster and locking one up in a toy? All told it doesn't seem very helpful so far
>>124582619I like this page - the parallel between Erica and St. George.
>>124582530>secret order>live in a big fuckoff resident evil mansion in the middle of fucking chicagosure, okay
And that's it for now, I think the next chapter should come out next week so see you then if you're interested.Hope you enjoyed it
>>124582508I actually like this style of paneling . I'm tired of writers trying to fit 3 paragraphs in one panel.
>>124582848thank you anon where can one find the new chapters when they come out?
>>124582555>>124582567Cecilia needs art of her getting a good dicking
>>124582896sorry, meant Win-O but that works as well
>>124582848Erica is cuteCUTE
>Have mask fetish>Love sharp tooth imagery>Love crazy eyesfuuuug
>>124582848Fuck, now I feel bad that he died. I thought he was always a dick.
>>124582667Tynion killed him off too early man. Also is he going the Berserk route where we get a really long ass prelude for a bunch of chapters then jump back in to the present.
>>124582848Thank OP, I did.
>>124582732>Painting of regal ass bitch with a edgy bandana maskI'm starting to warm up to this Order aesthetic
>Tfw no too jaded for this shit rebelious but with still a soft side monster hunter GF
Soooo.... Is Jessica considered a MHMILF?
>>124583041Kinda dumb that they're putting this work into humanizing him when he was barely around for a few pages before dying like a chump in the first runFeels more like they're trying to correct a mistake after the fact
I still don't really see a reason why you wouldn't try to gradually expand knowledge of monsters until you got to the point that they're common knowledge The fact that most people are unaware makes such a hindrance to keeping the problem under control, and if monster hunting was as prevalent as say, firefighting and rabid animal control I'd think that would be a large improvement
>>124583279>people know invisible monsters are real and can pop out at any time>kids know about them too>kids and adults now get scared at any noise in the dark >fear actually makes monsters >more monsters make people more afraid>world gets overrun with monsters also I'm pretty sure some asshole will try to weaponize monsters to use as war animals or some shit
>>124583339They pop into existence from a kid telling a spooky story to his friends, you could hardly do worse. Knowing and rationalizing the danger would just make people more aware and able to deal with it, since from what we've seen the problem becomes a REAL problem when the monsters are able to feed and grow in the security of ignorance
>>124580703I told you to post the rest yesterday fagtron. You made me wait all day!
>>124583424fear is irrational even if people know that fear makes monsters they will still get afraid, and kids would go crazy. the world would need to be put under the dictatorship of the orders just so they could have the power to stop civilization from collapsing out of fear. it's better to just let people live in the safety of ignorance. and again there is a good chance people will try to weaponize monsters against each other
God, it probably would never happen, but I like to think the Department of Truth and The Order are totally up each other's asses. The cryptid branch "conveniently" showing almost every time.
>>124583424>They pop into existence from a kid telling a spooky story to his friends,She said here >> 124581382 you need a bit more than that. There is probably a part of luck/randomness in the process and telling people that doing something have a probability to create a monster would make them more scared when they do the thing and in the end it would make the creation of monster even more common.
>>124582848Thanks OP. I'll see you next week.
>>124583057Oi'm a membah of the bloody Order of St. George, wankah!
So what is the ‘usual way’ to take in recruits? Is it just popping out more kids or something?
>>124583057When exactly was the "bandana" invented?i mean its just a piece of cloth? any kind of square cloth tied around your head will look like that.
>>124582780I can see why Cecilia had a soft spot on Aaron, but hated Erica. She saw Aaron as her best friend’s proper child, but she saw Erica as an adopted bastard child.
>>124582032Gas leak in the school during parent teacher conferences.
>>124585447They have an age limit. Erica was too old to recruit, but Jessica thought she had an amazing potential so ignored the age limit anyways.
>>124582848thanks OP, looking forward to it
>>124580828At least her talk of the other agents all being soft-handed paperpushers turned out to be true, as demonstrated.
>>124582848>see you then if you're interested.of course we're interested bitch
>>124586033Not really. The white masks were doing well enough
>>124586413>multiple of them at once to take out one monster>one of her to take out multiple monsters at onceAdmittedly she probably just sets the bar stupidly high, but it still makes the rank and file look Hellsing Organization mooks in comparison.
>>124582848Thanks for the storytime. This kept me entertained decently enough.
>>124583149Do you think the Order has bikinis with that pattern?
>>124582008first panel could be a great react pic>>124582037>>124582042>>124582170>>124582215Man, poor bastard
>>124582241>>124582250>>124582257>>124582271Less of an asshole than I though>>124582311>>124582320Man, I want more... and the flashback arc ain't cutting it enough
Really good, but like multiple anons have said, the middle drags significantly. The peak is the deuteragonists (Erica's clearly the focus character, but...) pushing the shopping cart of weapons into the woods. I wished it did more of that absurd shit than the community melodrama, but this is generally quite solid.Definitely taking notes on this for muh novel.
>>124582822the resiedents all have a tattoo with the same symbol as the house
>>124582822>>124587906Dont forget they all have the pull to do all sorts of shit like cut off communication networks, expunge social media, talk about this shit openly and still have no one know about them.Ancient conspiracies fucking suck, but the comic overall was pretty good.
OP, thanks so much for posting! Made my evening way more interesting.
>>124582692What would you guys color and teeth type of bandana would be? I'm thinking orange background, with goat jawbone pattern in black.
Genuinely great read OP, thank you again.
>>124588033Doesn't it depend on which group you end up with? Bleh, but I'd like a dark purple bandanna with a gopher jaw outline in black Kek. Those shits are weird.
>>124587879I understand your opinion but I like the fact the story actually take the time to show the pain of loosing your children. I have see too many story where the death of someone is quickly forgotten to move the story and it make people look like they don't give a fuck about their friends and family
>>124589428I agree the work is doing good at making the tragedy of the situation relevant. I was more saying melodrama in that most of the townies were given these arcs later on that degraded to "I don't know, and I'm scared, and I'm just doing my best to survive." At least James, Tommy, and that cop had agency -- reading the chief whine like a wet blanket about his powerlessness every time he appeared got annoying.
>>124580828Dude straight went out like a bitch.
>>124590309at least it's consistent with what we're seeing of him as a kid now lol
>>124581034Imagine them actually putting effort into stopping monsters instead of sitting on their asses. This is so retarded.
>>124590365It's almost like these monster hunters are purposely presented as being out of touch or something.
How are the order supposed to operate if not picking up orphan kids, as the “stray” pejorative indicates this is not the routine and I doubt the members are encouraged to fuck each other (at least not in an official sense) to make more of themselvesIs part of their illuminati shit that they get a tithe of kidnapped babies or something
>>124581131What kind of kid says "I'm just a fucking kid"? Jesus, this dialogue.
>>124582848I'll be back, but only for loli Erica.
>>124582848>Hope you enjoyed itHow could anyone enjoy this overly edgy trash?
>>124590762I didNot stellar but I haven’t felt like I wasted my time
>>124580840Bumping for "BROUGHT TO YOU BY A PERSON WHO WATCHED 'BLEACH'".Not hating. It's the first thing every by this author that didn't make me wretch. Actually readable.
thanks for the storytime
>>124582123>>124582144I want a monster slayer gf
>>124580703Praise be to Storyman, the redeemer of /co/ who contributes quality content and saves us from the coomers and frogposters
reeeee my story is a bit similar to this
>>124582848thanks for the story time, was a good read
>>124594131you snooze you lose anon
>>124595586Well tbf this is kinda copying Stranger things
>>124582692>all these different coloursHoly fuck this hogwarts ass shit
>>124595804Not reallyHas as much similarity as LOTR dose with Warcraft
>>124581741I don't get it, will he get a monster pet too? is it just non canon art?
>>124597046It's just a cover, but I doubt his story is going to end with him ending up in jail
>>124595804>NOOOOOOO YOU CANT JUST HAVE KIDS AND MONSTERS IN THE SAME STORY YOURE OBVIOUSLY RIPPING OFF THIS SPECIFIC THING THAT IS THE ONLY THING ALLOWED TO DO ANGTHING REMOTELY SIMILAR
>>124581274> teeth in the darkNice.
>>124580828Boy is that scene gonna be fun when its adapted
>>124582692This page gives me the impression that the Bandana colours signify different roles. The red guys were in service roles while the blue guys seemed to be involved more in research and intelligence. Is there any evidence for or against that?
>>124599629Just that they keep the family branches separated and color coded in the first place Plus Mommy Hunter mentioning that the black masks got whittled down to four people, sonsomething happened there
Thanks anon. In a sea of He-Man sperg-outs, you are a life-boat of actually-good content.
>>124582692>Illuminati tier secret society >Uses cathode ray monitorsUnless Erica is actually like forty I don't think they'd be that far back technology wise when she was a bit younger
>>124582593I really love Jessica's design. Why is this comic insisting on giving us characters AFTER they're already dead
>>124603984It better be one hell of a punch to show how Jess dies.
>>124582692how the hell do you eat in that dining room if you can't remove the mask or is it just a sit and chat spot and you take your meals in the color room
How does the order have all of this influence and power? If they told governments I feel like they'd try to take over control of the issue rather than just write a blank authority check to the hood-chic looking ass niggas Do they somehow own a shit ton of corporations and banks and bribe their way into total compliance?
>>124606040>How does the order have all of this influence and power?Irrelevant.
>>124606175bitch you're irrelephant
