I thought because Ashley introduced two new (potential?) adversaries - a mage type and a brawler type - she is gonna' kill off two old ones - Eph and Cutter. But all of a sudden Eph is still alive, although maybe only for long enough to tell Starfish it was Jivi who offed him.
Wellll, Eph just goes to show that GI type damage is a slow death, if you are just gonna be bleedin to death. And I regret sounding uber-gory,I do not liek it, but dannggg, Starfish is so bloated, one slice with a sharp blade and ewww, all that corpulence is gonna pour out all over his feet. (and is not instantly lethal at all.) I look forward to him getting alll guts vs ankle-tangled and trippping and rolling in them. Such a gruesome end to a nasty bass-tard would be righteous. I trust you AC to have something nice planned for him!
Always happy to check out your work.
Killing Eph would be the "smart" thing for him to do, I reckon. Unless doctors who can heal that kind of horrific damage are inexpensive and discrete. No honor among thieves, and all that. Doctor might tell the cops and send someone around to have a look, ask questions. What's one more dead body floating down the river, right? One you don't have to split your ill gotten gains with on account of him not being alive anymore. One who has been screwing up and whinging too much lately.
Yeah, my money's on Starfish finishing him off.
As much as I adore and feel for Ephsephin, I feel one of two things will happen.
A humanizing moment for Starfish, in which he gently sends Ephsephin to meet his maker.
Or a moral event horizon, where Starfish kicks Ephsephin to death for letting Jivi escape.
Look on the bright side, Eph; your mother won't be seeing you at the gallows.
Yea ... ol' Starfish is just the image of concern and helpfulness. Try as I might, I can't think of a reason why he wouldn't kill Eph. I mean ... it's not like he was ever gonna pay him, anyways, was it? Eph was a goner the moment he decided to work for Starfish.
Okay, I love this comic, but I have question... is there an easier way to get to the newest comic than what I'm doing? Because it is awfully inconvenient to have to go to the index every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and click on the newest page, or bookmark the last comic, then update the bookmark every time it updates. I feel like I'm missing something, like a "newest comic" page.
Just wanted to thank you for not only being a good artist with a good, well-paced story and a great sense for world-building, but also a regular updater. In the world of webcomics this is more a boon than you realize.
@Fiddler: Try the RSS feed in the bottom right of this page? It alerts me whenever there's a new update and sends me straight to the new page. In my honest opinion, RSS feeds are the best thing to happen to webcomics since... webcomics. Or in this case online graphic novels.
Where's Sette didn't she chase after Starfish? Did she get caught by those other Frummagems? But Jivi's luck's turning around, saved last minute Ephsephin calling out, is Sette going to save him in some crazy fashion? So many questions! I hope the weekend passes quick... First time commenting, I love your comic. Your an amazing writer and artist!
@Chipper - I am pretty sure Starfish is well over his moral event horizon. He's a murder, a slaver, and a paedophile. What's he got left to do show that he's irredeemably bad? Incestuous underage necrophilia?
I love reading these comments pages, but they're a pain to get to. If I'm reading, say, page 30 of the current chapter, there's no link to the comments for that page. Instead, I have to go to the latest page, then click the 'next' arrow, which brings me to the comments for the latest page, then use the back arrows at the top to flip back page by page till I reach 30. Not at all optimal - I have never seen the comments for the first, oh, 200 or so pages because at this point flipping back to them one-by-one would take hours...
@ Otookee: Alternatively, change the url from hxxp://www.casualvillain.com/Unsounded/comic/ch0#/ch0#_##.html to hxxp://www.casualvillain.com/Unsounded/ch#-p##/. Still more work than if there was a link for each page's commentary, but less time consuming than hitting the back button however many times.
