Hey this bit looks a little familiar! I think I saw something like this happen in a previous Skin Deep story.
I’m updating the comic from DISNEYLAND. Well okay I’m in my hotel room but whatever close enough. The Store Sale is still going until THURSDAY when I get back to Portland, so if you want a cheap book or deck of cards, get in on that action NOW.
I will ALSO be at Rose City Comic Con this weekend!
I’ll be at table A10 in the Artist Alley with the always-wonderful Sfé Monster, so if you’re in Portland this weekend you should STOP ON BY. :)
sweet awesome-sauce! Gabe can really lay out some demon smack-down!
Dang indeed, Myra.
Pretty much sums it up…..
I just love Myra’s face in the last 3 panels!
Myra is SO jealous
Of course, he’s missed our red daemon friend… that won’t cause problems.
Wow, even Myra is impressed. I am too. Gabe must be royally pissed off to do such a thing. And I wonder if it got Mike too.
Okay, kids, important safety tip: Never piss off an angel.
Or mess up his clothes
Uhuh, what I said last episode.
So, why didn’t Gabe do that in the first place? Sometimes the “biggest sledgehammer first” strategy is the best one!
I definitely was wondering about the same thing. Must be one of those cases where it only works if he’s enraged?
Or maybe if he’s dirty. Anyone else notice the shockwaves blowing the blood off? Of course, people have already pointed out that getting Gabe’s clothes dirty /makes/ him enraged…
Gabe went full Muppet… you NEVER go full Muppet!
Anyone who can impress Myra is a pretty cool dude.
Dear Kory Bing,
Please sell that last panel as a print. I will pay you a million dollars for it. Thank you.
That last pannel should be a T-shirt
The first panel would make a pretty good Tshirt as well.
Myra: Wow. I think you should lead with that one next time.
Gabe: Sorry, that’s a one-off, can only be used once, done once.
(Geek points if you get the reference)
Iron Man 2?
Iron Man 2.
So that just happened.
Yeah, the Bane of Demons thingy. Watching it in full power is quite a treat, and says something about the true potential of our sometimes hard-to-love, whiny little protagonist. All in all, dang.
I just realized that looks similar to what Michelle did to ’em in episode 20. http://www.skindeepcomic.com/archive/issue-five-page-20/ I’m guessing that Gabe’s version is a lot stronger, though.
Ze may be a badass, but ze also has some very beautiful wings! (Question[s] for the next Q&A: How heavy are they? Are they uncomfortable, or is ze just so used to them that ze doesn’t give them a second thought anymore? Do they have any protective qualities/abilities?)
Panel 2 is an incredibly neat visual with the demons’ bones glowing through their skins.
I’m also glad that this fight is over. Watching an action scene unfold at the rate of a page a week for three months was starting to feel dragged out. It all plays really well as a one-sitting read-through though.
OK. Is that red thing a bug . . . on a bear?
Yeah, I dunno. I think that might be a spider on Lyra’s neck… maybe her amulet?
Well, I think Gabe’s relation to the demons is kinda like Sam the sheep dog and Ralph the wolf in the Warner Bros. reality. It’s just a job and they owe him money from the last poker game. Only this time they really pissed him off.
Is Myra’s one eyedness only in human form? In the maize I thought that she had it as a bugbear there too, but it could have been part of the costume.
Just as Greg’s damaged medallion leaves him unable to disguise his ears, Myra’s damaged medallion leaves her unable to disguise her left eye. When she’s in human form or midform, she covers the eye with a patch.
Combine the first panel with the last two from last page, and Gabe could be a rock or metal frontman with that sort of posing skill.
And impressed Myra is adorable Myra.
THAT FACE. Gabe’s face is awesome xD.
Rule Number 1 of the Gabe club: Don’t talk about Gabe.
Rule Number 2 of the Gabe club: Don’t fuck with Gabe.
Rule Number 3 of the Gabe club: *coming soon*
Gosh, great panels, Kory! Particularly like 2 & 3. Also appreciate that you took the time to re-ink & re-color (at least) panels 4, 5, & 6. Am waiting anxiously for the next page; also for the physical book I can hold in my hands!
For those in need f a soundtrack, Gabe’s emergence is best served with a side of WOAH-OH-OH-AH-AH-AH-AAAA-HA-AH-AH-AH. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6EfhAFA2yFE
You are welcome.
ps-sorry, the short one got taken down.
Don’t forget MCFM in Detroit april 11-13 & GLFC in feb. Don’t remember the dates on other one.
The only way that this could possibly be any cooler was if Gabe turned Xer axe into a Marcellene-style bass and ripped a wicked power cord.
*Rolling on the floor, laughing uncontrollably* MYRA’S FACE!! BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!! MYRA’S FACE!!
I too, want that last panel as a tee shirt…and I NEVER wear tee shirts with stuff printed on them!!
That looks like the kind of ability with a reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeealy long cooldown.
