October 20th

by Hjels
Everything is falling apart.

After a decade of fighting the curse that has befallen them, Catherine and Raimundo have their backs to the wall. The last of their allies have been claimed by the monster that comes for them on October the 20th, and now, they may face the horror alone, isolated on the Icelandic tundra.

Can they survive the day? Can they find a way to go on, even if they lose everything? And can they find the man called Shields McKloskey, who seems to hold all the answers?

You know, somehow googling "car getting shorn by some kind of crude arm blade" yielded few results in my reference search.

Well. He's not dead yet... But those cuts don't look great, do they? And his assailant is waking up to a pretty horrific sight. No-one caught up in this will come out of this night unscathed, are they?

Another little milestone today. 250 pages in the bag. And what a page for poor Rai. I guess a quarter of a thousand pages ain't a bad run, right?

Yup, I think it's safe to say Rai is not entirely aware of what he's up against, even after all these years. Or else he wouldn't be strolling carelessly though the streets of Aachen. How long has it been since Shields told him to "always keep moving?" An hour? Not even? And just what the hell is happening to that young lady who a second ago was just minding her job? What's going on here?
@RedClause: I agree completely. It's already going to kill you, no reason not to piss it off further.

In Panel 6, is that shadow, or was Rai THAT frightened?

The monster does look oddly ..... Terminatorish. O.o
I dig the Grievious reference, ha ha.

Well, Rai is certainly in his element as long as he can run and jump. We know the monster is relentless but we don't know how fat it is. Have the monster got an upgrade since Ansgar faced it?

Man, General Grievous hasn't aged well at all.

But in all seriousness, of all the things I imagined this...thing...to look like, I don't think I ever expected this. I thought it would look entirely supernatural, but instead we get something oddly modern. Fascinating...

And it's nice to see the graffiti around these parts keepin' it classy. Kultur!
... Well, that's just lovely... Big bad seems to be some sorta ancient cyborge because that does not look like a skeleton to me... or is it just wearing some kinda suit... ah whatever first time we've actually seen this thing.
No, no crowded areas. Cops = bystanders. Wait for the bad guy to jump at you and jump elsewhere. You've had more experience at this, Rai, unlike sheer killing, where it has the advantage. Sight distance and terrain are your friends, lactic acid buildup, your enemy.

Oh brother. Oh man. Oh Rai, run like you've never run before. That thing's got a blade for one hand, so, maybe it can't climb so well?
Panel 6, dude (not "dud," like I accidentally typed before. Stupid Alzheimer's). Rai's expression, body language, that angle, and the coloring. Wow.
Seriously, Rai, head for a crowded area. Preferably one filled with cops.

Your cameos are always so seamlessly worked in! And the translation is much-appreciated for this monolingual pleb over here.

@hipopotamo: I doubt they are in any serious danger.

@Wurzel: No resemblance what so ever.

@GroovyKinda: For Rai to come blasting by was the original intention. I came down on a different idea, though. If you look closely on the last panel, you'll see a silent shadow moving across the roof tops.

@Delta-v: I worry some times that I go too far with the inside jokes. But once I got this idea, I didn't want to let it go.
I love the character not reading anything after 1830 ha ha.
Awesome strip Marius. Let's hope these nice gentlemen survive Rai's incursion into the city.
