The Sanguinarian

The Sanguinarian

Even in his feeble attempt at going incognito, Les can’t bear to part with his color scheme of choice.


Nate: Hey Jimi, check this out. Lilith here says she used to go out with Les.

Jimi: Really? I love that guy!

[Les, incognito, illicitly receiving a blood donation from a bloody gloved hand.}
Jimi (off-screen): You know, I heard one of the meat guys has been saving blood for him out of pity.
Lilith (off-screen): That’s Rick, alright.

Nate: What does he do with all that blood anyway?
Lilith: He’s not drinking it, if that’s what you’re thinking.

Nate: Yeah, I should have guessed that. He’d have died of salmonella by now.

    That’s Nate’s outfit from EOC. Or at least, looks like it.

  2. CarolynV says:

    I like how Les’s hair seems to match his pants. :P

  3. Sara E. says:

    Now I wanna know what he does with it. Does he bathe in it Elizabeth Bathory style? Does he use it for perverse sexual practices?
    And is Lilith going to play any major roles in the future?

  4. Awesome says:

    Makes one wonder what he really does do with the it, but then again, I am not sure it should be known.

    Great comic Nick,fantastic detail and coloring this time as well.

  5. Danielle says:

    I just realized something… That girl’s name is lilith XDDD

  6. OverlordLaharl79 says:

    Hmm… wonder what’s next in this story… and what does Les do with that blood, anyway?

  7. kosujituwiynt says:

    Did anyone notice that Lilith has brown and green contacts?

    • model S says:

      it could be natural heterochromia. i know a guy with one brown eye one blue eye, and yuna from FFX/X-2 has one blue one green. so you never know it could be heterochromia.

      • John says:

        Yep. Not entirely related to heterochromia, but my family on my mom’s dad’s mom’s side has unusual eyes (skipped my granddad, picked up in my mom, and then in my sister and I.) My right eye is dark brown, almost black, my left is more of an amber color Not usually noticeable until you look closely or they’re in the right lighting. Mom’s are mixtures of multiple different colors primarily green but with an amber/gold ring around the pupil and spots of brown and blue scattered through, and my sister’s and great grandmother’s were both striated black and white, with a blue appearance until magnified that got paler as they got older. Pretty cool actually, our optimologist flipped out the first time he took a look at my sister’s XD

        • Michelle says:

          My mom and I both have central heterochromia, hazel eyes with a dark brown ring in the center. My grandfather had complete heterochromia like Lilith, but his eyes were brown and blue. I’d rather have two different colored eyes, but I’m stuck with what I’ve got unless I invest in colored contacts.

  8. NobodySpecial says:

    And now when I see Les, I’m going to be thinking of the song, ‘Transfusion’ by Nervous Norvus.

    Yes, I am that old.

  9. Curator says:

    I wish I had heterochromia…

  10. codyblues says:

    xD the first panel made me laugh so hard.

    “Really? I love that guy!”

    I don’t know why, but its minor things like that…that crack me up.

    Also, is that a futurama reference?

  11. Matthew Henry says:

    “He would have died of salmonella by now.”

    Along with other diseases you can get from drinking blood straight from a freshly killed animal.

  12. King Jack says:

    Deep, deep down. Les knows he’s just another bullshitter. I love that guy.

  13. Quicksilver says:

    “I just realized something… That girl’s name is Lilith…”

    That, or Nate thought it would be funny to call her that. If so, you have to admit, he has a point.

  14. DragonXomega says:

    Even in disguise, Les looks like a complete tool- just a different one. My guess for the blood? Using it as material for some pretentious avant-garde art.

  15. UD says:

    Oh shit I just realized that the vaginoid has heterochromia.

    That, or she wears contacts.

  16. Wes says:

    He’s so stupid; vampires cannot get salmonella.

  17. Lupirio says:

    lol, her name is Lilith. Dam goths and their monster names, luv em tho =P

  18. Hemlock says:

    It’s not like he needs someone to slip it to him. You can actually buy blood at a lot of meat departments. You usually have to ask for it, though. There’s a lot of great recipes that call for blood in them… but maybe I’ve said too much.
