Oh good, this is where the whole "bigger than everything" endgame starts, isn't it
This sounds unlike the Loup we know. The orange on the previous page was strange as well. Hmm
I’m thinking he wants to use Zimmy to prolong his existence...
Time for Coyote to come back!!! We've been waiting so long...
I was re-reading the chapter and noticed that Kat's shirt is missing the white lines in the final panels of 2382 and 2383.
I wanted to let you know in case this wasn't on your radar. Love the comic! :)
Ah, so Loup is ultimately just a means to an end. Sad for Ysengrin, though he also kinda sorta deserves it at this point.
Ysengrin? Or Loup? If it's Ysengrin who Coyote has planned a terrible end for, I will be very upset. He deserves way better.
It's a plan to help Annie imo. That's the only way Loup would agree to die. One of the few things we know about him is that he loves Annie. I think the resolution to "two Annies" will be to merge them, and the merged Annie will be able to have a single child at a time without dying.
Surely Loup can't wriggle out of Coyote's trap (which is I assume, to be crushed over a geological span of time- which makes being thrown into the Sarlacc pit like a swift guillotining). Suspenseful coupla days to come...
ysengrin... the missing piece.... IS LOVE
Tom is great! 👑 First for misdirecting me/us with chapter pics + early pages that make it seem like a Kat/robots-centric chapter (they could still appear!). 🛳 Second: the plot and character development advanced in less than 20 pages: Kat and Paz (and the Annies) made up and will try to communicate better; Cannie attempted to talk with Tony and understood that any progress will be slow; Loup reflected on his situation and accepted his role, apparently, as a stepping stone for Coyote's plan, plus there's the possible interference from a short-circuiting Zimmy. 🐺 Third, the mixture of nature and anatomy reminds me of Frida Kahlo's art, where she'd have veins come out of her body or have her heart surrounded by branches 💉
Ah, I see that missing tooth on the previous page. Only the 4,000th to notice, probably...
Heart ache. I love you Ysengrin, I'll never forgive Coyote for being killed by you.
Why do I feel like if you printed out all the pages of this chapter and laid them out in a grid, you'd see some kind of hidden message?
It must be hard for a writer to hype up a "genius plan" and hope that it comes across properly in the medium when the time comes.
At last! We're getting back to the story. No more of those tedious pages of people sitting or strolling around, waffling on about interpersonal relationships, as if they have nothing better to do, and there wasn't an urgency to stopping Loup from trashing the Court.
What!? What is it?! NANDESKAAAAA
Okay, but why did I read this in Christopher Lee's voice?
Ohh, is that the true etheric form of Loup? Looks pretty convincing.
Aww, don't make me feel bad for Loup. :-\
I figured he was being tricked (I mean c'mon, it was Coyote!) but still.
He has a root in his eye (he has a root in his eye).
Oh is that Coyote's game.
I'm beginning to suspect that he planned for the creation of Loup in order to both tip the Court's hand into activating the omega device, and to shield both himself and Ysengrin from its activation. A decoy, and a sacrifice.
Ah, Introspection! A potential source of great self discovery or awesome self defeat. It all depends on the quality of self criticism in the feed back loops. *** Wonderful art again! I’m still wondering if Loup is learning to control the Forest, or is the forest is acting to contain his infection?
So he's been doing some thinking after all. Didn't think he was capable of it.
Ooo twig in the ol' eye gotta hurt. And I thought cataracts were frustrating.
Hm well, some small credit to Loup - he's clueing up quicker than I thought he would.
Ah, yes, "A fault confessed is half redressed."
I just hope Loup will not meddle with the plans Coyote had prepared before his "demise".
The Enlightened Idiot
Uh oh. I'm getting "Major Confrontation" vibes. This is feeling penultimate. What's happening
Was all of this just a ruse for Coyote's amusement after all? Or will Loup remain as he is forever?
He's plan-ted something terrible for him.
Good. I'm tired of this guy. Coyote was a jerk, but at least he was funny. Ysengrin had mental issues, but at least he was loyal and basically good. Loup is less than the sum of his parts.
Oh, and lovely art on this page and the last. I don't mean to sound overly critical. This is one of my favorite webcomics. I just don't like Loup.
Oh, phew. This is just a Loup convo now (like Annie, Kat, et al just had). I had a terrifying moment of fear that Loup did something to Gamma.
For our believers in this world are many... of Coyote, Ysengrin... Rey, and...
Nooooo... don't make me feel feels for the "Villian". What have you done Tom.
I see that the story is moving as quickly as always, with these last four or so pages. Slow down, Tom, you're making me carsick.
What the heck is that red stuff that creepily fingers-like root is pinching what looks painfully? And where is it going? T'aint natural I tells ye.
Please tell me it's Loup talking not Ysengrin.
If Ysengrin dies most of this fanbase will die with him
Well, I reckon Loup gets divided by the knife that can cut a shadow from a 2D surface. Ysengrin and Coyote return and everyone lives Happily Ever After ?
Thanks for pointing out that missing tooth on the previous page! I doubt I'd have ever noticed it myself...
A terrible end? I sure hope this comic ends well!
Also I have a hunch zimmy may show off more power here.
Do you know why you must meet your end, Loup? Because this comic has been trash for long enough, it is time to restore it to its original glory.
Glad to know Coyote was irresponsible enough to manipulate Ysengrin into killing him, but not so irresponsible as to leave a huge monster in his place for very long.
