Chapter 3: Page 14 – Watchful Eye

Posted by / in Comic / 34 comments

The End…

Just kidding!  I know the previous page was already something of a cliffhanger, and that this doesn’t really help either, but remember that we are planning this out to be a powerful graphic novel in print form, where you can flip pages as quickly as you want.  We needed this splash page to focus on this event, these emotions that many of you are feeling.  On Thursday, things will happen.  You’ll like it.  So check back then, or just pledge on Patreon to see the next two pages right now ;)

Speaking of Patreon, we just reached $50 a month in pledges!  That’s so awesome!  Thanks to those of you who have been willing to support us in this.  This little extra fund will allow us to give Seba deserved bonuses, pay him to do extra artwork, as well as allow us to maybe advertise a little in some places, and reinvest into the community via Patreon, Kickstarter/Indiegogo and the like.

Also, remember to vote and help us win a contest for free publicity (we’re currently in the lead but #2 is creeping up fast!).  You can do so on each once a day per IP address you have access to.

    Oh sure, the bleeding humans get all the attention. That poor poor deathbot, what did he get for his heroic defiance at the end? NOTHING! (Robots FTW!)

    • :P Deathbots will get whole chapters of attention later, so don’t you fret.

    • Sebastián Píriz

      didnt you see the poor deatboth’s face getting bullets? didnt you see the way he looked with the eyes that werent falling from his head??

    • Jason Clayton

      He “took” Tenzin with him

      ~EDIT~ How do we even know that deathbot was even a boy, maybe it was a she??????

      • Nate the Robot

        Well, not to be crass, but he wasn’t really hiding his robot boy parts …

        • Not sure I even want to know… ;)

          • Nate the Robot

            Some day, when you’re old enough, we’ll have a talk about the Laserbeaks and the Bumblebees.

  • Charlie

    I got it-the real hero of this story is Jane. The others are just disposable meat puppets, and we’ll meet some new ones in the next chapter.
    Hope I’m wrong. I like Jane, but I like the meat puppets too.

    • Jane prefers the term “meatbag” over meat puppet ;P

  • jerry mcmasters

    Whew! Tenzin’s just resting. I thought he was dead for a minute there.

    • Yep, he saw Viktor napping and was like “damn that ground looks comfy”… lazy [email protected]#[email protected]#$ both of em.

      • jerry mcmasters

        No no no Viktor’s taking the serious nap. The Big Nap. The Nap You Don’t Get Up From. Not Tenzin.

        • Or is he? ;P

          • Amberlight

            I still expect someone of them to be cyborgyfied at the end of the chapter.

          • jerry mcmasters

            Good call, even if it doesn’t happen.

        • Assumptions much? :D

  • Carina

    I actually really like that splash page.

    But man those suits are bulky, Tenzin is lucky he didn’t end up on his back, that might’ve snapped his neck.

    Nice focus on the symbol on the tower, btw.

    • Yeah, he’s really lucky that he faceplanted ;)

    • In operation it is very much designed for the helmet to serve for both head and neck protection. With his helmet off though… yeah… ouch

    • jerry mcmasters

      I also like the page and the symbol on the tower. The art is just hypnotic, there’s a lot to take in if you take your time and look over the whole thing. The control of color is really impressive.

      • Sebastián Píriz

        Thanks a lot Jerry :)

  • Damn, damn fine artwork. I am, as always, in awe.

  • Marisa Brenizer

    That logo is interesting…

    • That’s Minerva’s tri-part logo – featuring Aegis, Glaucus and Oculus all in one.

  • Tantz Aerine

    Now that was unexpected. And powerful.

    • I try to keep things interesting ;) Plus not everything you’ve been led to believe by what you’ve seen is necessarily true ;)

  • Day-um! Did not expect that

    • NickDA

      I still have coworkers who read it… and I can tell when they get to this page… “did I just spend the last hour for you to kill every single named character!!!!”

  • Citrus Reaper

    Hey, robot arms are better anyways.
