Vampire Weakened

Vampire Weakened

Our young hampire learns a valuable lesson: actions have consequences.

Happy Wednesday! Updating today feels a little weird, but it’s the best choice for a couple of reasons. Juvenile humor about updating on “Hump Day” aside, my goal is to go M-W-F eventually, and this should flow nicely when that day comes. Until then, I’ll occasionally be posting Friday Extras (sketches, one-panels, quick comics, etc.)

Some of these will go in the archive, but it’s a good reason to keep an eye on the blog! As I understand it, there may be a Friday Extra this week…

Transcript

Arne: Thankfully that old lady’s a lifer, so we aren’t getting sued, but that was pretty bad. I find you hilarious, so I won’t fire you, but we are going to have to knock you down to bagger.

    Awwe. I feel so bad for him. :(

    Dude.
    I LOVE your style. I love the characters. I love the mature content and foul language.
    I beg you, don’t let your work slide into the story-non-development-witty-comment-pit where QC currently dwells.

  3. Nick says:

    Thanks, Anon! Don’t worry, stuff will continue to happen.

  4. Jonathan says:

    Just read through the archives. Got to say, I approve.

  5. Blaise Evariste says:

    I too can throw French around! Dearly enjoying this comic and its prescribed dose of ribaldry.

  6. Nick says:

    Oh, the gut-wrenching angst for such a tragic figure!

    – Loving the comic…didn’t you used to hang out on the Avalon webcomic forum back in the day?

  7. Ducky says:

    I don’t get one thing though – She’s a lifer? Doesn’t that mean someone who’s sentenced to a lifetime sentence in jail? Both Wiktionary and dictionary.com gave me that definition of the word… I’m not a native English speaker.

  8. Nick says:

    Thanks guys! Glad you’re liking it.

    @Nick – Indeed I did! Are you Nick101?

    @Ducky – In this example, Arne just means “lifelong customer.” In a way he’s comparing the Food Baron to a prison. :-)

  9. Nick says:

    I’m Nick P, I helped out with some of the fanfics that happened over there (like http://forums.keenspot.com/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=38701).

    Really enjoying your comic, though!
    Got to aks – how does Purvous understand (or try to) what Les is?

  10. Nick says:

    Ah, yes, I remember you. Far nobler a participation than I had – I just drew dirty pictures. :-)

    Glad you’re enjoying it! Purvous hasn’t really had much of a chance to interact with Les yet, so that should be interesting!

  11. Sara E. says:

    I can’t help but feel bad for him…
    Great comic btw, I always look forward to updates.

  12. Tyciol says:

    Love the expression on that guy’s face

  13. Rocky says:

    The expressions in the last 3 silent panels speak volumes. Hilarious.

  14. Uranium Bullet says:

    Is it weird I read the title as Vampire Weekend?
