Crunch! Way to use those teeth, Reynard.
Now things are getting great.
He bit a piece of paper. Watch out, we gotta badass over here!
YES!!!! Thank you Renard! Now let's see Annie nuke those annoying robots!
Ohh, it's about to get toasty in here!
Ahhhh Shit!!! Annie is about to get her powers back!!!^_^
Finally, the A-Team brings their A-Game! Good work fox guy!
"Cool mode" Ray :)
Time to declare WILDFIRE!
There's something about Rey's wolf form being genuinely organic, where it's done just sparingly enough that every time it happens it feels super badass.
Those yellow eyes.
Dies anyone remember battlebots? This is nothing like it, but its still awesome!
Glad to see the royal robot rumble starting. Question is, what are Kat and Paz up to?
LET'S GET READY TO RUMBLE!
Reynardine looks rather creepy in the last panel.
Ranard's going to... dun dun dun! Rip a piece of paper! Or maybe it'll explode or something. That would be cool. Or maybe it's actually super plot-relevant and destroying it will bring everyone back into the natural world! Yeah, probably not.
HELL YEA u go renard
Annie made the right choice bringing him
I love it when he shows this side of himself. Kinda wish he did it a little bit more often.
cheap magical wards...my favorite!
Rey is enjoying himself way too much...Not gonna stop him. :D
I like how Reynardine is just like "WHO DARES PUT A WAR ON MY BABY"
Go, Robot! Go, Reynardine!
GRRR-gnarf!!! Take *that*, robot magic ward! Reynard is in town. He's chomping wards and taking names.
Robot kicking ass!!
I kind of missed Renard. I'm glad he's important in this chapter.
...Renard, I love you so much ...BUT
that is one creepy expression yo.
Anyone else think the symbol on his head looks like a guy going "EEEEY, come at me yo"
BAH GAWD, KING! IT'S A SLOBBER KNOCKER!
I would so love to see Reynard's transitions from toy to wolf animated! Maybe for your Patreons?
Suddenly everyone is calling it magic instead of etheric science. Revolution is clearly afoot.
let the chassis hit the floor, let the chassis hit the floor... let the chassis hit the... FLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORRRRRR... \m/
That's a scary as hell wolfish face with malicious eyes you've got here Renard. You've been a friendly fluffy doll so long that I must have forgot that in reality you're a fox in Wolf's skin.
Don't pull her arm off!
The foe's disable wore off?
I hope they don't succeed because I want to see the ship becoming alive.
So he CAN take wolf form here!
decent renard to the rescue
also i am disappointed that boxbot has not been allowed to participate in the noble undertaking
Robots! STOP! FIGHTING! For no g**amn reason! Is your wiring faulty??
The ship's robots are merely pawns without real physical or magical combat ability. The real struggle will be with the transformed seraphim, which had laser eyes in their "normal" form, followed by the "boss-level" Ship-bot that is likely guarding Zimmy. I suspect the freed magical students will defeat the seraphim, but it will take Paz, who the seraphim felt was NOT a threat, to defeat Ship-bot.
Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyy go Renard!!!!!!!
*munch* Om nom nom nom nom!
If you cut it there, Tom, then we have all rights to scream NO RENARD NO
And things are really starting to get interesting, now!
Shadow 2 is a lucky guy. I almost feel jealous.
Epic robot battle and Renard crunch!
All the robots were Kung Fu fightin'...
Rey seems to be enjoying himself.
Shouldn't they have torpedoed *all* the etheric catchers and restored the ship to non-Zimmyland?
Chompo. Only Renard this time.
Team Adventure Robots Go!
"The Demon Renard" everybody.
Orange robot eyes = srs bzns
I KNEW IT!!!!! I KNEW Renard would be able to remove it! Being a GOD.
I love the bony evil robots, and Robot's flying ninja kick is superb.
just like pulling a band-aid...
I would love a wolf slave thing like Renard.
Shit just got real.
Omg. The fourth panel. She looks utterly annoyed, it's fantastic.
Annie and Rey seem to be having a pretty normal conversation, what with all that "BANG!-CLANK!" action going on above them. [And somehow, I know Tom is going to make me feel sorry for the ship when this is all over.]
"Now, where that girl that called me 'cute' were?"
The colouring in the panels at the top is really something. Thanks Tom for making Gunnerkrigg!
Omnomnom delicious ward. Tastes better than the crustacean spirit Hetty.
I HAVE STRENGTH ENOUGH FOR THIS.
On the most interesting moment!
Doesn't seem like a fair fight, those spider sailor bot things don't even have eyes.
...How I got my arm ripped apart, kids
now that i think about it it kinda makes sense for their robots to be experts in kungfu/whatever martial art of your choice. Becuase for one they can just download the moves, for two it would enable them to subdue students that would other wse cuase harm to other students. or better yet subdue trespassers and remove them form the court.
Awww i was hoping to see how the King of Robots would look in this distorted reality. But we had instead figthing robots, so everything is good.
Everybody was kung fu fighting.
Uh-oh. "Do Not Remove Under Penalty Of Law" turns out not to be enough. Mr. Ship had better have something up his sleeve. If he's a "he". And if ships have sleeves.
Uh, being Court robots, I'm pretty sure they have access to *everything* they have access to thanks to the Court.
On television, fighting robots look like Boxbot with circular saw blades instead of arms (which explains why nobody likes those shows).
I imagine a West Side Story scene featuring these two robot gangs. Music and all.
Famous last words, Renard...
Reynardine knows how to nom them wards.
NOOOOIIIICE!!! Renard comes through again, while the disposable machines kill each other. Surf Wisely.
I sense this going badly for Reynard
Smile Dog. Cannot unsee!
Renard to the rescue!!! (Are you watching, Jenny?)
Bit it off!
Okay, Renard looks very creepy in that last panel. Thank you for reminding me that he is actually dangerous.
That boat has the most amazing abilities of disappearing and reappearing
Anyway, awesome job, as always!
Inexplicably awesome. Seriously, I'd like to explain it, but I don't know why it's so awesome. It just is.
Epic robot fights are always great.
Robot uses flying ninja kick! It's super-effective!
Renard uses magic wolf bite! It's super-effective! (we hope)
Go, Robot! Get that spider-skeleton marionette nutshot!
So If this is Zimmyland still why is everyone in normal form? I kinda wanted to see Fox Rey again . . . But robots fighting is cool too! :D
Animatronic assault! Cyborg clash! Mechanized mayhem! Synthetic scuffle!
So....you couldn't get a pair of scissors or something?
Renard is so cool holy frick.
That's it, Robot, kick 'em in the nuts. And bolts.
Just a reminder that for all Annie and Kat's wonderousness, Coyote and Reynardine are of another order completely. Also, too early to ship Jenny and Rey?
Another one of Renard's powers are revealed yet again!
This battle calls for a Boxbot cameo.
Reynard, I don't say this enough, but you're fantastic. Robot, Robot too. Robot is also fantastic.
You know, I sometimes forget that Reynardine actually got his powers from THE Coyote. Its moments like that last panel that remind me just how dangerous he really can be. Nice work, Tom! Hope to see more of Reynard being a bad-ass soon!
Ew, Rey, spit that out! You don't know where it's been!
Now we get to see some action. (:
You people who are skeptical of the paper tags have clearly never superglued your fingers together! Try it sometime!
I doubt much would be too much for our demon-God Renard. Even in a toy wolf form.
Doesn't Rey still have Cyote's tooth in his mouth?
Everybody was Kung Fu Fighting!!
Renard's face is M A N I A C.
Ohmygosh, Renard is *so cool*. XD
ITS A ROOOO-BOOOOOT RI-OT! ITS A ROOOOO-BOOOOOOT RI-OT!
Good boy, Rey. Good boy.
This is why it pays to have a spirit fox on your side.
And now, ladies and germs! It's time for Carver Special: FLAME ON!!!
Rey used Crunch! It's super effective!
Annie's looking pissed in the bottom left panel.
Loving the evolution in the art style, Tom, it's amazing to see Annie transform from an unemotional football child to a normal looking and emotive young woman.
Woo! You go Reynard!
The urge to shred: If there is no newspaper, canines will resort to just anything made of paper ...
Love the look of an eldritch demon Renard's got in breaking the spell-paper. The pinpricks of orange are a loverly artistic decision.
His power level is over 9000?
So, the Forest Medium has a complaint against the Court.
Annie looks quite annoyed with that seal! Time for some robot roasting I bet! x)
I worry about Zimmy. She must be a mess by now. I also worry about Kat and her visions of grandeur. I also worry about Paz's safety, because although she has been deemed not dangerous, she must still have some influence with Kat, and if she doesn't, well then there goes their relationship.
Ha! the wicked witch's flying robot monkeys!
Damn, I just realised this could be a great intro for a story centered around Renard. Annie would be greatly humiliated, since she could only be portrayed as a "Damsel in distress" character in this novel, having only a few scenes here and there.
And now, it's time to kick some butt!
Om nom nom.
Hope Annie doesn't get nailed with magical feedback when that ward breaks...
