Oh geez I didn't notice the hair and... mess on the scalp until the second look.
aaaaa these pages have been fantastic, Ashley. My loathing of Starfish is becoming so great it's coming out the other side as a hateful fondness. I hope Jivi gets out unharmed ;3;
Starfish, you clever damn scumbag! I mean, lying is one thing, but using the lie to clear his name AND make Jivi and Quigley look guilty, both at the same time? Quigley's going to want his pay, though. Ashley, this is really well-written! I am so wound up in what could happen next...
Starfish seems suspiciously unconcerned about what Quigs's reaction might be. Perhaps it's because he knows he has back-up coming, or perhaps it's because he thinks Quigs won't do anything fancy for fear of drawing the Crescian police.
No, it's surprisingly hard to break a bottle made of thick glass, especially if there's still any liquid in it. You definitely *can* bludgeon someone to death without breaking it.
Let's maybe not dwell on how I came to know this little fact.
This comic is so awesome. I wonder what the sight if this mess is doing with poor Matty's head. Also, one tiny caveat regarding Starfish's scapegoat story; blood splatter. Unless he's got some spell to keep it from sticking to him, he should be pretty liberally covered with it.
C'mon, Quigley, think fast! That little kid would not be strong enough to bludgeon Eph hard enough to reveal brain matter! He wouldn't be tall enough, either, unless Eph patiently stood next to the cart the entire time it was happening.
What is happening with the box of rat traps in the last panel? I don't understand the drawing, is it some kind of Penrose triangle (only a rectangle) or something?
Unrelated: I donated back when that donate button was up, but seriously there should be a kickstarter to get this printed...
So, I don't think I ever looked at your base website before, but we can see Sette (http://www.casualvillain.com/gallery/wanted.html and http://www.casualvillain.com/gallery/stalkers.html) and what might be pre-undead Duane (http://www.casualvillain.com/gallery/magick.html). Are the captions true to the world of Unsounded? Sette's brother seems like an interesting reveal...
I really wish Matty would not have to see this. Although probably he already saw really bad shit when Quigley went berserk with him tied to his back. Oh, wait, Matty has only Chitz-sight. Perhaps that's a good thing right now.
Go purchase a 40 of bottom shelf malt. Even empty you can feel it is tough enough crack a skull. Now imagine the thick ye olde timey wine bottles that were meant to be reused. (I've got a few that have washed up on the beach).
Someone mentioned blood spatter earlier and I have to agree that Starfish's professionally rushed bluff should not hold up. This was NOT a clean kill, he should be notably covered in...evidence...of his crime. And yeah, if you think about it, Jivi's too young and weak to have pulled off repeated death blows to the skull of a man twice his size.
I'm wondering, didn't Cutter cut Jivi upp pretty bad? As in easily traceable blood tracks bad? Just a small thing, but i figured Cutter might want to bring this up with Starfish, if only to save his own hide.
