It's an Ellen Ripley moment. Except, y'know, too late. Like this page.

Um, GO MARKU!

Dracula squicks me out in that second panel. See if you can find out why. But I'm keeping it anyway.

Ugggggh. Wanted to finish this page before school started but hah. This is why people work with other people to letter and color comics. And hay there lack of backgrounds again. What the heck is that behind Marku? I dunno. I hate coloring. One day I'll learn to stop worrying and love the bomb.

Big big thanks to ~animetedskier for giving me some gun reference.

I'm tempted to shop a Guitar Hero controller in Marku's hands.

It's a BIG-LIPPED ALLIGATOR MOMENT

Enjoy.

I could easily see the last two words of the father's demand being in all caps for extra emphasis.

I like to think that your icon is pleased with that.

Vampire: BLAM
Elmo: Hahaha!

I concur - an epic Guitar Hero 'shopping of the last panel would be... well, epic. :D

You really should resubmit that last panel with a Guitar Hero guitar. That would be great. Or a "This is SPARTA!!!" quote.

I think you did every single facial expression in this wonderfully. Also, that blood splatter, it's......inspiring?...in an artistic way of course, not in a homicidal way. :p

Damn! Awesome page. The guy on the bottom has the whole 'this is Sparta!' expression going on.

YAY! And I also think I can see why the second panel grosses you out. Hahha.

XD I was like, "Maybe he should look like that." Then I colored it in and I was like EWWW! that's so gross and wrong yet I like it because it squicks me out. Then I came up with a reason *why* he would look like that, which wasn't squicky at all, only the end result looks squicky. I mean vampires are described as looking ruddy when they've just fed, so...

yay squick.

Squick? How interesting. Yeah, I heard that drinking blood to them is the closest thing to Ecstasy they can experience. Looks great, all the same, the continual greatness of Friends of the Dead makes me happy that I watch you.

The "squick" I was experiencing was the fact that he's getting "excited" while he's eating a little boy. :X I suppose I can make an exception when he's really just killing anything that moves regardless of age or gender.

And thank you! :hug: I'm glad that you're getting a kick out of it.
