Happy Birthday Wendy, I hope you had a great weekend =)

Interesting enough, from the Dragons perspective, THEY are the protectors of the realm.

Its just the little people who beg to differ. Much like my own government...

Hah! I love the dragon banter while terrorizing a town. I especially laughed at the townfolk yelling "I can't find my keys!" in toxic smog. I missed these two! xD

Oh yeah, I love scripting for these two, I have them so inside my head, I can hear them talking. I just jot down what they are going on about, and BAM! Jobs done!

I can't find mine either!

[Have Peeps and Cizors crossed paths before?]
Draginbeard 12th Aug 2013, 6:46 AM edit delete reply
Its kind of silly what people do while in a panic. Looking for ones keys before getting to safety is awfully common.

To answer your question, Cizors and Peeps have never encountered each other.

Cizors looks sad and cute in the middle panel!
Draginbeard 12th Aug 2013, 6:50 AM edit delete reply
Cizors is more concerned than sad. He doesn't exactly feel any pity for the people getting munched on (it was his idea to come here originally), but he isn't going to join in.

Leerpain is, for the moment, quite content chowing down on the village.
Dodom 12th Aug 2013, 1:19 PM edit delete reply
I thought he was sad over the loss of his beautiful talon!
Draginbeard 12th Aug 2013, 1:33 PM edit delete reply
It was Leepain who actually got his Talon broken. Cizors is the blue dragon.

Leerpain isn't sad over it anymore. He knows it will grow back, but he is not going to let anyone forget that these little mortals are dangerous and should be eaten before they cause even more trouble.

Oh, I mixed the names up!

It's been awhile since we've seen these guys! Now I'm curious if it is actually another portal or light from last battle's explosion. In any case, being eaten alive surrounded by poison gas certainly isn't the best way to go.

I'm trying to not bounce between characters too much. Jolly is the main, but from time to time I will show some other characters and what they are doing, but its normally just a quick shot.

The Dragons, especially Cizors, are a big part of the story, as is the Artifact. I want to give them a little screen time, once in a while.

Leepains poisonous breath is really pretty vicious. Its like being lost in a fog bank, as your lungs are ceasing up!

lets also not forget lost cart keys.. and melting eyes .. >_<

Oooo the blind guy can apply for a seeing-eye Dragon! Although, maybe thats not a good idea after all.

"Hello little Hoo-man, walk toward my voice...that's it, a little closer. Closer...a little more... NOM! NOM! NOM!

poisonous breath...something that doesn't help getting you dates.
Draginbeard 12th Aug 2013, 7:23 AM edit delete reply
Death Breath. (Also see Coffee breath, Ice Tea breath, and Frito breath) It is an across the board, deal breaker!

Hard shell candy!
Brilliant! :3

This comic just gets better and better.
Draginbeard 12th Aug 2013, 7:28 AM edit delete reply
Thank you Rinkel =)

I was thinking the other night...

Knights like to dress up in fancy colors...oddly, hard candy often comes in many of those same colors.

Coincidence, or a joke told around the Dragons lair?
Rinkel 12th Aug 2013, 7:59 AM edit delete reply
Either way I really like that. :3
I guess if I was a dragon I would consider it candy too. Or like a nut.
Draginbeard 12th Aug 2013, 1:19 PM edit delete reply
It would be like eating a chocolate kiss, without unwrapping it first!
Centcomm 12th Aug 2013, 9:06 AM edit delete reply
oh man nice stuff here god those balloons must be a pain! - love the size diffrences and perspectives - the dragons are a hoot :D

Seriously well done stuff here :D
GO dragons! oh wait GO JOLLY! >_<
sorry got mixed up on who to root for!
Draginbeard 12th Aug 2013, 1:23 PM edit delete reply
Thanks =D

I have a method for doing the balloons, but on a page like this, it can get cumbersome, especially since Leerpain is such a jabber jaw.

I cheer for booth teams myself, even though I know the Dragons aren't exactly good guys. Its like catching yourself rooting for Tony Soprano.

Mmmmm its the bones that make the crunch! :D
Draginbeard 12th Aug 2013, 1:24 PM edit delete reply
And they stay crispy in Mustard Honey sauce, too!
Molassive 12th Aug 2013, 11:07 AM edit delete reply
HAHA! Hard shelled candies!! That is genius! And that guy saying "I can't find my keys!" totally cracked me up :D
Draginbeard 12th Aug 2013, 1:27 PM edit delete reply
To give credit where it is due, the candy joke was inspired by an old Lifesavers commercial.

They used to market their Winter Green candies, claiming you could make a spark if you bite them in the dark.

It just begged to be used for a Dragon joke!
Molassive 18th Aug 2013, 5:24 AM edit delete reply
That's actually kind of cool! I might look up the commercial on YouTube.. :)
Draginbeard 18th Aug 2013, 7:38 AM edit delete reply
Oh man, I just did a quick look for the Wint 'O green commercial I was thinking of, and came across a whole slew of early TV commercials.

And I spent a good hour watching them all!

Another portal? Part of me is hoping Jolly gets sucked into another portal and we get to see him au natural again ;) (Jolly is still my comic crush)
Draginbeard 12th Aug 2013, 10:56 PM edit delete reply
That beam of light was something that Cizors hadnt seen before
But then when it comes to that machine, who knows what it might do?

Oh, and Jolly is single, but he is a bit of a weirdness magnet ...
