Chapter 4, Page 7

In case you hadn’t noticed, Threvi is incapable of shutting his mouth? posterior? He’s very new to all of this.

The sketch to finish comparison and notes for this page are up to read now~

In other news, just a copy-pasta from last update:

Patrons– A new tutorial about proportions in comics is up now! For non-Patrons, an unlocked tutorial about branding your work was recently posted to my Tumblr, so you can read that for free if you like!

We are also having a Patreon sticker giveaway contest for $5+ Patrons who missed out on the ECCC Kalla sticker and other goodies (shown above!). There will be several winners so go ahead and comment on eligible posts any time this month to enter :]

    Beyond Lies the Kallakore, it seems… To think that only thing dividing two old friends from reunion was the literal pound of flesh if that so.

  • AGV

    Ha! So Bex’s the one who’s understanding martian!
    Or the martian Jehovahs Witness is the one speaking english all of the suden *shivers*

    Also, sixth attempt could mean that she’s been here for six days?

    • Pylgrim

      The “Wh-” that followed the greeting made it sound as it was surprising for her to hear those words, but according to the speaker, this is the sixth time that communication has been attempted. Somehow, Bex acquired the capacity to understand Martian organisms recently.

      I’m going to guess that since Martian organisms are components of a system at DNA level, this newfound power of understanding them was acquired by wallowing on Kalla’s blood.

        Or by her brief immersion in the sea, courtesy of creepy-tentacles.

    • Yotz
      It not instantaneous, mind you, and without intense symbiotization it would need certain time even for such advanced biotek to cause an effect.

  • Lost Yooper

    Greetings! We’d like to discuss with you our savior, the golden martian thrip friend!

  • David

    We come in peace! Shoot to kill.

    • Vert

      Don’t run! We are your friends!

  • So the neural sea modified her to understand Martian communication…

  • Linebyline

    Oh, good, it’s peaceful. I’m sure that means nothing else will go wrong.


    • band

      that’s the spirit! :D

  • skellagirl

    I LOVE the “peacefully affirm comprehension” line, haha. I’m not sure if I could be so cheery upon First Contact.

    • Asterai

      Well, it might be easier if you knew you’d be back on your feet soon after being killed.


  • ZeroID

    This just keeps getting better. Kallakore was a loss but now there is a whole new entity to engage with. The dialog and the artwork is always amazing and the story line is just the best. I wait with bated breath for the next page.

  • Darcy

    I’m picturing Bex in some version of a Martian Groundhog Day where, like regular clockwork, someone (something?) comes knocking on her door. But today… Today, it came EARLY. The pattern has been broken. Perhaps Bex will finally be free. But remember: Don’t let Threvi drive angry!

  • metaceryn

    Anyone else having flashbacks to their last meet-cute right now?

  • Ian

    “We are vvvriends! Ouch!” He didn’t like how threatening the ouch was beginning to sound… (A Martian Odyssey by Stanley Grauman Weinbaum) The “Greeting!” Reminded me of it. XD

  • Pumpkin_Cake

    I know it’s been said before, but I really like your skill with speech bubbles. The really impressive stuff along with the subtle stuff like LEVi’s bubble here that’s half off-panel as Bex is not facing him/not paying attention/walking away.

  • Some_Douchebag

    Two possibilities:

    a) The Processor was able to instill a grasp of English into one of its actuator-organisms after “reclaiming” (read: having its carrion-eaters devour) Kallakore’s body and apparently poking through her memories posthumously.

    b) Bex is beginning to understand the Martian native language.

    Since this new buddy has been trying to establish communication with Bex, I’m guessing it’s option A.

  • Gonfrask

    Everything is awesome, everything is cool when you are part of a team

    And easier when you can understand the others

  • Octavarium

    I didn’t notice it before, but it suddenly occured me that this new entity is not just one, but at least (and probably) two. Because it’s seems that each speech bubble (“Greeting foreigner!” and “Greeting!”) comes from a different source. Also, if it is just one, what reason would it have to greet twice? Maybe you all noticed it already, it’s just that it just struck me, and sometimes I’m a little slow XD.
