Huh? Where did the rest of my post go? I must have messed something up. Sorry for the lame joke in my last post. Quick question: Is Devian from so long ago that she speaks more formaly? Ex:Could not instead of couldn’t, and I am instead of I’m? Or is that just the way you choose to write that? No offence to the writing style of course. Just curious.
This WordPress system sometimes deletes everything after a smiley face in a post for some reason.
“Is Devian from so long ago that she speaks more formaly?”
Not totally sure what the reason is, but she certainly speaks more formally. Addison is 2,087, but he refers to himself as Addison Fucking Payne, so age alone isn’t a reason to speak more formally. Some people adapt to the times differently than others. She was brought up in a very formal, traditional atmosphere, and she chose not to adapt to the times in many ways.
I want that axe. My world war I sword just won’t cut it for me anymore, even if it was extremely expensive.
And I’m going to let my hair grow as long as Val’s by next Halloween. Then I’ll dye it red and do something very awesome, not sure what exactly. I’ll probably also buy another sword to have a pair. And then go murder my chemistry teacher.
This post is one of the consequences of staying up for 20 hours and going to an orthodontist sometime during that time frame. The bloke said he could make my teeth longer after my mom blurted out about my “obsession with vampires”. Not sure if I should go for it.
Secondly, this is kinda sad cuz i know whats coming. Part of me is like “FUCK YEAH” when she breaks from the chains, and the other part is like “oh wait…she’s gonna commit suicide…shit.”
Ahhh…i loves it.
Love A.F.Ps expression 6. He seems to have a constant “does it look like i give a fuck” attitude. I did a jack-o-lantern of him screaming “BECAUSE I”M ADDISON FUCKING PAYNE” for Halloween.
Mmmmmkai, the fatigue and cold medicine are starting to kick in so i’m gonna call it a night.
I’m sure we all expected Rage to be the one bursting out of the chains. Then again, contrasting Devian to Addison for the number of chains…. Rage is probably a two ton ball of metal links now where as I’m guessing Val got circled around three or so times (judging by the image). That kind of surprises me though. Even if TFZ knows AFP is the leader, I’d think Val would receive at least as many chains for being the one to turn him.
Looking at this from the movie standpoint, cutting from the last page to this one should have some really cool camera effects, and a big whooshing sound, equivalent to a room getting unpressurized. The effect on the audience would be a sense of finality and impending doom, maybe some more cello music as we begin to see the chained vampires. Really sort of hits you, they are f*cked. Unless, of course, The almighty A.F.P. has a solution on the way, which we know he does.
…..How can A.F.P now have any more lines, his badassness is only rivaled by Rage, I think he should still have some lines just not alot and play a very minor part but still awesome. Not my place to say but might as well give you my feed back =D
There’s no time left for anyone to have a lot of lines, really — this thing ends in 16 pages. Also, Addison almost has to die very soon. It’s the only major question mark left in the writing. The only way for the final scene to work is if Addison is dead and I can’t really change that final scene. Anyway, some tough writing coming up. Don’t want to kill him, but may have to, but figuring out how is extremely difficult (and there’s so little time for it). Do not give any suggestions — don’t want to hear them.
And I believe i read that Devian is Japanese, that being said could it be possible that English is a second language and thus she would speak a more formal and structured version of the language (think of the high school Spanish you may have taken, it sounds nothing like the stuff you here on the street)
Not that it matters really, but I guess being able to hypothesis this little bits helps the readers attach a littler personal claim to the characters thus making us all more invested in the story.
Giving us those cues, is a testament to the quality job the creators have done, Good job guys… now dont fuck up the ending
You have an excellent of way of enforcing this idea that no matter what the Vampires do, they are currently screwed.
Had I not read the spoilers by this point, I would have been sitting here anxiously refreshing the page over and over waiting for this to be resolved so that the “good guys” have a chance at surviving.
Basically, that’s a fan boy way of saying excellent job, and I look forward to recommending this comic book to everyone that I know.
Long time reader, first time poster (sounds so fucking generic)
I am curious if TFZ has any ‘backup’ chains on hand. Otherwise those armed zombies in a small space vs a full strength vampire = Heads being torn off.
Then all Val has to do is to free the others. But most likely that is not what happens, but its a plausible scenario. In the wide open, it could have been easy to chain the vampires, but in a tight closed area, it might be tougher, especially if all the chains have already been used up. Knowing TFZ, he might have brought more. Just incase there was more vampires, but that is debunked by the fact he can smell the vampires. (I believe thats the case, Im too lazy to check the FAQ right now because Im about to go to bed)
But I remember reading about a cure for vampirism being in the briefcase on the FAQ. If AFP doesnt have any lines, does that serum come into play at all? And Im curious to when ‘good’ TFZ comes in with his teenie, tiny zombie army
i’m really looking forward to the zombie vs zombie matchup in the future.
i guess that because the good TFZ’s zombie army is smaller, he can concentrate better and his zombies will perform more complex fighting like karate or something.
a karate ninja zombie smashing the brains of a regular zombie be awesome!
I can’t wait for the next page and to see what happens to Val! Disappointed that Devian didn’t fly away, but for her character it makes sense. I just skimmed through the FAQs (while trying to avoid spoilers) and read that Devian is Chinese. Explains a lot about her character to me.
Anyways, if this gets made into the movie mentioned earlier (sorry, haven’t been reading the comments) I’m curious as to how the chaining of the vampires will actually commence, and how the last panel is done.
Val kicks ass once more! XD I think Devian speaks more formally because English isn’t her first language, I do that a lot too, so I kind of understand her… Kind of.
Aw, you’re going to kill A.F. Payne! ;_;
Poor Mac, he’s so exhausted… Wish I could take that axe from him and kill kill kill x_x
Great page, I can’t wait for more!
Do the chains on Devian actually stop her from flying (needs to use her arms), or is it because she’s not very strong at flying and she’s being held down on the ground? My mental image: Devian-balloon, being held by zombies
And – please don’t kill Addison Payne! I like him too much! Maybe if he’s incapacitated (too many chains to take off easily)?
Well, if I were Vampiracated against my will by some crazy bitch, and then concocted this overblown convoluted scheme to get back at them, I’d probably use as few chains to contain her as possible, as an insult. Like, “ha, you’re weak, you suck.” And if she breaks free, all the better! That way she’d have a little false hope before I chain her AGAIN. Repeat ad nauseam until she’s too tired to break free from chains, then downgrade to rope, then maybe to gardening twine. Eventually, she’d be tied up with her own hair, which I’d have shorn from her scalp. Insult to injury. But that’s just me.
AFP in so many chains is like a mark of great respect. When he does go, I’m sure it’ll be dramatic and awesome, not something stupid like, “Well, humanity is safe. Now I can retur- Fwuh! (slips on some crayons a kid left on the floor, falls and lands on a pointy Lincoln-log, dies.)” Besides, there’s always room for an “Addison Fucking Payne and Pals” spinoff cartoon show for the kids on Nickelodeon. Doesn’t have to be cannonical. He can, like, teach them shapes and colors.
Also, I don’t know how many comments I have made on this page already but I don’t care, I’m making one more.
Chains have always been in a way sacred to me and ropes on the other hand unclean. (This has a reason but would require a two pages long explanation.) Maybe this is one of the reasons why it makes me sad. Or one of the reasons why it makes me less sad?…
Our last hope is Val, I think. I hope she can somehow free the rest but I don’t know. Also I’m glad Addison F. Payne dies rather than being chained up for all eternity. -He is better off this way and more noble as well.
Okay. My computer has frozen twenty times while I was reading this page and I have gotten into a state of utter downheartedness. It is time I leave. At least until next update. Lord Klingsor over and out.
and of course, now mac is too tired to save the vamps. looks like it’s up to Val and possibly Grady. Think of it, if Mac had stayed inside to cut the z’s off just as they broke past the vampire line, the vamps would be fighting again for another few hours due to awesome.
Although, then we would lose all the awesome mac +vamp fight scenes and probably unnecessarily stretched the story out, but i can dream can’t i?
Mmh, a pity we can’t hear anything: in the movie, Val’s scream when breaking her chains should be memorable.
Ans also, when saying “you”, does Devian mean the entire group of vampires, or only Addison? Because… I don’t know, they seem to be quite close to each other. Not as a couple of course, but is Addison some kind of mentor to Devian? I must say I like the idea of him being a kind of wise elder among the vampires. And at that critical moment, he would be an exemple for them: stern and dignified till the end… till the very near end…
*wails* but, but *trembling lip* we all love AFP!! Now we’ll never know the secret of the sunglasses! Or how he keeps his skull so amazingly taut! or, or . . . *sigh*
Well, as they say, if you have to go – go with a smile. I vote for the crayon slippage, Lincoln log impalement . . . Brings to mind all the silly stuff that happens to Spike – he’ll be doing his big, dramatic monologue, then *bam* trip, or fall in a grave, or get tasered, etc. Love that stuff.
Crap, was there some part where they discussed chains being able to really restrict vampires or something? I totally don’t remember that at all… can anybody point me to the comic where that’s explained?
So this issue has been covered substantially, jeez.
Also, why would it need to be explained? It’s explained simply by seeing that chains are holding them. Now you know! Their strength comes from having a lot of fresh blood in their system, and Val has the most fresh blood of any of them after drinking Murdo’s mom’s blood and Murdo’s blood. Most of the rest have gone without much blood for the past month, so they’re weaker than usual.
“Her flight always comes in handy, especially before Addison invented the airplane.”
LOL. Finally, credit where credit is due. All that “wright brothers” crap, with the first flight being for 30 seconds or whatever, that was never believable. Thousands-years old vampire inventing the airplane actually does make more sense.
Well, maybe he invented a moisturizure cream for the zombies’ oh-so-dry skin? or perhaps a cure for cancer?
On a more serious note: i bet he invented a cure for being a vampire. or a high heat bomb or somesuch. maybe it’s something akin to blade’s serum? sorry bout comparing something like blade to this.
oh well, just a thought.
i love that addison gets extra chains. as if humanity didn’t have it bad enough after the end of the world, now AFP is going to die. we are so screwed even if we make it through all this and living through the zombie infested world. maybe jesus will come back and save addison this time, ha.
Yeah, he already said that the vial in the case was a cure for vampirism.
And as for the chains, why would they be able to break out of them? I imagine being made a vampire makes you stronger, but not a TONNE stronger. I imagine most of their strength is from thousands of years of workout. And if they had drank blood I imagine most of them would be able to break out.
The chains were also further explained by them only attacking from one direction, wearing them down until they were weak enough to use the chains on.
So stop asking stupid questions about them, it’s all right there and obvious.
