Oh he's got so many enemies he can't even name them all... or any of them.
Thanks. Grimdock became one of those unexpected characters, I didn't originally have him, but Aris needed someone to interact with, other than Id...
Amazing background art on this page!
Curious to see where this one goes.
This page shows something that's important to establish for later, but I still didn't want to give it all away yet.
Tellus is a character I'm really wanting to explore soon, and I am planning something big for him in part 3 of the story.
A ton of backgrounds in this chapter, so I started experimenting a bit more with the way I do cities, and this page is one I became very happy with in regards to that.
Grimdock just became more and more fun to draw, but crowds are always difficult to do, and as usual, if I'm stuck on some faces, I do friends or Youtubers or other real people, just alter them a little bit.

One of the bystanders here is based on John "Totalbiscuit" Bain, a Youtuber I followed, who lost his long battle to cancer the day before I made this page, so naturally, being a big fan of his content, I wanted to honor him in the best way I could.
I know it's almost a year late, but rest in peace, John. I miss you.
Is Mr. L the ghost? Time will tell...
I haven't really showed Aris fighting before. Turns out she can be pretty deadly if given the chance. Removing the oxygen from an area isn't exactly fair game, is it?
I don't draw animals nearly enough. Cats are not my favorite, but it was fun to add a little bit of character to "Celia"...
Just a minor detail I've been trying to keep up but not mention until now: Aris doesn't cast shadows or reflections.
Of course, that detail also gives her away to people who know her.
This was a very fun chapter to do. I wanted to show the differences between Aris and Grimdock, so there's a lot of character interactions going on. I did this May 2018 and after almost a year, I'm still very satisfying with how it turned out. Enjoy!

Of course, I do have a Patreon if anyone wants to chip in, it would be much appreciated.

@Dadaph: (IT'S LUIGI DON'T TELL ANYONE)
@Lord Enigma: That's what they want you to think.
@Lord Enigma: Oh they are. This is the internets after all.
Beautiful artwork. Nice use of the manga style, and you manage to give the characters nice personality. Kousuke's face in particular.
@kidcthulhu: Yeah, figured it was about time as it's already 3 chapters into the Ghost of Betrayal story arc.
Aris is the character I'm focusing the most on this time, so I wanted to have her, and some fresh colors. And I went with another template while I was at it...

This is some good artwork. Colorful and full of life. I like it being just a few shots of the town to establish the mood, people and backgrounds. Lots of comics skip that, but I think it's an important thing to do.

That's a really clever way to end the prologue.
So, why did Grimdock suddenly become so nervous?
The answer may come next time!

Chapter 23 starts April 1st!

I've had this story on my mind for the last 20 years, and while it's fun to finally tell it, making a buck or two while doing so does a lot for my motivation.
Or just read and leave a comment if you like, that helps too.
Who is this mysterious Mr. L and how is he connected to the ghost?
