But if he's trying to punch you you're probably not in too much danger.

As always, vote for a look at my progress! As well as an extra doodle about Jonan's current behaviour.



Vote Incentive for This Comic.

Okay, I know he's the big tough Runewriting master Lord... but that was the scrawniest punch EVER.

Have I ever taken a moment to just say that this is one of my favorite webcomics? Jonan is the best thing to happen since sliced bread.

Oh goodness, thank you so much! *u*

(Jonan might think this is true also, but not for the same reasons)

Sev's face in panel 5 amuses me for no real reason. Also, Jonan's punch. :P

...They always told me, in martial arts, that if you take out someone's leg, they won't be able to land a solid punch.

Jonan learns this the hard way.

So apparently Jonan's physical attack stats are in the negative numbers.

Sev's expression in panel five is really, really funny. I don't know if he's reacting to how Jonan punches like a girl or if he's just amazed that the password/bouncer guy puts up with it. Or maybe a bit of both!

Hmmm... The hired help will tell you when to run... Sure, THAT'S trustworthy... My sign would be the deranged smiles... But even that might be too late....

I'm getting the impression that, for all his power, Jonan is a lot like the grumpy old man yelling at the damn kids to get off his lawn.
And Sev and Tareth will come into his life, warm his heart, and teach him the real meaning of love and family.
OK, may be not that...

Is... Is Jonan wearing high heeled boots? 'Cause if so he is simply faaaabulous dahlink! It's very him, very "in" this season, not at all like the claws and green skin look of that country bumpkin he's been lowered to working with. Although the poor dear doesn't seem to have his catwalk strut down just yet, more's the pity. Still, we'll make a fashion icon out of him yet!

(Please ignore my rampant role playing of a fashionista if it doesn't strike as entertaining. Also my abuse of the poor comma, I'm bad at this grammar thing :P)

Jonan is 6'4" with the waist size of your average telephone pole. He would make a FANTASTIC model.

I feel compelled to draw Jonan as both a crotchety old man and a drag queen. It would be glorious.

It's a good likeness though! Although if anyone tried to force him to wear women's clothing they would probably die a terrible death...

....Wait, I thought I already commented on this page. What the heck, self. ANYWAY. So Jonan really has some anger management issues to work out. I am also wondering if he even CAN perform healing runes if he can't speak. Will he have to go find ANOTHER healing runewriter to get healed of the mouth thing and THEN have to deal with the flesh-rotting thing? Also, are those lines I see perhaps signs of said flesh-rotting? It's either that, or dude has some series issues with spider veins.

I agree with everyone else that Sev's face in panel 5 is classic, but I think the random helpful manservant in panel 6 is my favorite character in this page. He's so nice! Clearly, despite Jonan being a total jerkbag, he has excellent taste in servants, because I haven't seen a (sentient) one yet who's actually been anything less than cordial and/or thoughtful.

And after ALL OF THAT RAMBLING, I shall finish by saying that I continue to love your dialogue, esp. the little bit there in the las panel. Jonan's main henchman is awesome. XD

OH HEY had one more random thought I couldn't resist throwing out there: if there's one silver lining for Jonan in all of this, it's that his lips being sealed together ensures that, no matter how much pain he's in, he can never accidentally scream like a girl. (Whimpering may still be a problem, but those are easily concealed beneath a manly growl and lots of muttering.)

I wonder when Jonan started looking like a walking skeleton (unnaturally thin and pale). In all the flashbacks in the vote incentive he looks normal(-ish). Maybe it's a side effect of spending most of his free time in graveyards at night...
