Nothing brightens up Straxus' day like a little torture. Have I mentioned he's evil? And is it even fair to torture a guy who's both crazy, and apparently can heal just about anything?

While Everline DID give him the go ahead to investigate, I don't think she knew quite what he had in mind...

Ooh, his eye healed? Is it a bid odd that I love that this makes me like Straxus even more as a villain? >.>

This reminds me of Czeslaw Meyer from Baccano!. Have you seen that anime? It's quite good.
Matt Knab
Nope, his eye is still gone. His right eye held the crystal, which is either closed or out of view on this page.

It's not odd at all! It's good that he's actually BEING villainous. Straxus is NOT one of those "former villains who have been redeemed" type of characters.

I haven't heard of that one, but I'll have to look it up.
Edit - it's on Hulu and now in my queue. :)

Oh I forgot to mention, I think it's funny he called the demon who helped him his ally. Unless I'm misinterpreting things, he is no ally...
Matt Knab
Yup, that's Teiger being crazy and deluded. :) The demonic collector is definitely NOT Teiger's ally. Straxus is making an incorrect assumption about that as well, though.

Personally I'm reminded of Mr. Garak from Star Trek DS9. Straxus would need a nicer suit to really capture the essence of Garak.

Only now do I realize you are doing the frames by hand rather than with a tool. It lends such a comfortable, organic feel I can't believe I didn't notice before.
Matt Knab
Ah, I loved that show. Straxus is more Gul Du'kat, I think. (No idea if I spelled that right.)

Ahah, you spotted the best way to tell between old and new ink jobs! If the pages were still pencils, I inked them recently and used a ruler for the panels. My older inks did not.

Haha, your author note cracked me up, Matt. "Have I mentioned he's evil?" made me chuckle. Also, it's really cool that dude can heal, but sucks as well since it'll prolong his torture. :-/
Matt Knab
Hehe. :)
Yeah, a "healing factor" has to make torture even worse. They can do worse and not worry about accidentally killing their victim. :(
Centcomm
yep you can just keep on cutting and doing all sorts of nasty things..

Fantastic page....but that doesn't surprise me
Matt Knab
Aw, thank you! XD
Celerdon
Don't care...evil. ;)
Matt Knab
Haha, exactly!
