Demon Hunters: Back from the Dead – Page 11
See ya around, Raalf!
Wow, another month down! A huge thanks to all of our Patreon patrons who supported us in May! This Thursday, the Brotherhood’s chief historian, Kentucky Blue Clay, returns with another bizarrely true tale of monster-hunting history in Storytime with KBC, so come on back for that.
Raalf scrambles backwards on the ground. He's cornered himself in the rubble and looks terrified, staring up at Gabriel. Gabriel's legs and the gold-glowing rebar are visible to one side of the panel.
RAALF: N-Now hang on a minute, mister! I barely even knew those guys! I mean, I work with 'em, sure, but they just invited me out for a drink, and next thing I know it's all demon summonings and dead warlocks and "Meat"-this and "Meat"-that and--
GABRIEL: Shut up.
Gabriel leans close to Raalf. He's got crazy eyes, and he's spattered with unspeakable ichors. This is not the face of a man you want to @#$* with.
GABRIEL: You are going to deliver a message for me. You are going to drag your sizable, orange ass back to the Pit, and tell your boss that Gabriel's back in the game. He's back, he's pissed, and he's gonna take it out on every soul-stealing, sulfur-sucking, $#&@-sack of a demon he can find. You think you can tell him that?
Raalf looks confused. Gabriel too, but in an angry way.
RAALF: M--my boss? You know Jerry?
GABRIEL: Satan, you %*@#-wit! I'm obviously talking about Satan!
Raalf laughs and gets to his feet. Gabriel's looking frustrated.
RAALF: Satan?! Ha! I'm a garbageman, dude! How the Hell am I supposed to get your message to the Prince of friggin' Darkness?
GABRIEL: Don't demons all have some sort of...I don't know...psychic link to the Beast or something?
RAALF: Whoa! Racist, man! Not cool!
PANEL 5: Gabriel throws up his hands in frustration, turns, and walks away from Raalf, who snaps his fingers and steps into a flaming portal. It's gonna be a tight fit.
GABRIEL: Fine, whatever! Tell Jerry. Maybe it'll...grapevine its way to Satan or something. I don't know...piss off!
RAALF: Hey, anything you want, man! Thanks for the mercy--I owe ya one!
Smash cut, five weeks later to one of Satan’s underlings telling him that Gabriel wants to give him his game back, and he’s going to have to take every demon out on a round of soul stealing and getting piss drunk on sulphur shots.
Satan looks confused, shrugs, and goes back to reading his paper.
That would be brilliant for a cut away in Demon Hunters 3!
HAHAHA! Great stuff. Can’t wait to see more.
Thanks! I know I speak for Jimmy when I say we can’t wait to show you more.
Ben, I think you are getting better.
Gabriel looks great in the first two panels he appears in and good in the last two.
Can’t wait to see you develop as an artist 🙂
I especially like him on the first panel. It doesn’t look like your usual style and therefore underscores Gabriel’s mood at that moment.
I think if used not to often this “departure from style” can be very powerful.
Where are the transcripts for the last five pages (and this one)?
I enjoy every little bit of extra content, so if would be great, if you could add those, Jimmy 🙂
Oh, and a link to Kentucky’s columns would be great.
P.S.: Don’t worry, I’m done with complaining about the comic… for today 😉
I agree, that *would* be great! I’d honestly forgotten all about adding the transcripts. I’ll get back on that, especially since they’re not so much for the readers as they are for Google, since web-browsing robots can’t read a jpeg!
Raalf’s an okay guy. He was always good for chips and a really great salsa when us guys got together to watch “Gilmore Girls”.
