Maybe you are, but up here in Canada we're all deviants, freaks and perverts. Every one of us.

Oh now now. It's not that the Us is lacking in freaks, perverts, and deviants. It's just that most of them don't run the country and those that do still cling to some morale facade that make them feel like they're better than the rest of us.

Then again the funny thing with this bit of comic nudity is that it's not really as cheesecake as any of the more mainstream comics so just silly.

On the subject of the "nation of prudes" comment, especially given the context of Utah...

I remember hearing a story about a man in Provo, Utah who was on trial given so-called "obscenity laws" in Utah. He'd been found to be watching porn. However, given that the definition of "obscenity" is ruled by "community standards," his defense attourney subpoenaed the town's cable records.

Turns out that they've got some appetites in Provo, Utah. The man was acquitted.

I guess the point I'm trying to make is that the US is totally a nation of freaks, perverts, and deviants. We just hate for people to know that; after all, many people trace with pride the nation's foundation as a bunch of religious fundamentalists who were kicked out of two other countries for being absolutely no fun.

Big Ferrah is BIG.

Never seen a wolf in real life before. I've seen wolf-dogs. The one I've seen the closest looked on the big for a dog, but not outside the realm of possibility -- there are some pretty big breeds, after all. A dog/wolf/canid/whatever that stand as high as my waist or hips at its shoulder? Big, but again, not crazy. One that stands as tall at the shoulder as I am tall? Huge.

It may just be the angle, but to me, it seems that Ferrah is having to lower her head to bring it level with that of the heads of Kat and the vampire. So Ferrah's lupine form is what, 6 feet at the shoulder? 7? (1.8, 2.1 meters?)

i dont know why but i was thinking the whole month, would it be bad ass to have blades made of blood come out of your hands and now there are blood blades, now im going to start thinking of mechs vs. vamps and/or were-things and see were that goes.

You can probably guess its not particularly good for him.


Tease. :P

For some reason, I kept thinking that in the old archives for The Beast Within, Ferrah bit Mack clean in half. Damn, wouldn't that be awesome? But upon checking the archive, Kat smacks a tree after getting knocked across the field, and passes out. We never get to see what happens beyond Ferrah starting to lunge for the attack.

So I have no idea, really. I can still hope Ferrah bites Mack in half, or something equally awesome.

Also, the necklace (or specifically the charm/pendant/whatsitcalled on it). I was curious why the vampires wanted it so bad before. Now we know that it's actually an order from down on high by some 'Duchess' -- someone more important than the vamps we see presently wants this necklace. I gotta know now, what is so important and special about this necklace?

Teasing has always been something I've been rather good at.

I'm glad the comment regarding the necklace was noticed. I wanted to make sure everyone remembered that.

Back from the fields, finally able to catch up on the comic. Shadowsmyst and Mysti have been busy. :D

Loved the comment on the orbital cannon for a spirit wake. Really ties it together with the big boom. I wonder though, I only know of orbital cannons from games like command and conquer....in this world do they have the real thing in orbit? And if so...who controls it?

I'm still more interested in the pendant then the "The Duchass" =p. As for the vamps... just goes to show that karma's a bitch. They were so cocky they made their own enemy. As for the "orbital cannon" I loved it lol. Now to see how they deal with this new orbital bombardment they unleashed.

I know I was hoping for bitten in half, but disarming Mack and squishing his head is awesome too.

Poor Mack. Does cheering about his grisly demise make me a bad person? Should I feel bad?
