Oh, I see, I understand now. The true friendship between Ethan and Not-Zeke will be born from the fact that NZ can keep killing Ethan any number of times, and he never stays dead, thus letting the genocidal bot have his murder cake, AND eat it too! I’m pretty sure there’s a Japanese light novel series with exactly that kind of plot…

I mean, he technically also described like 80% of Romantic Comedy anime pre-2010 where the gag was the male protagonist getting seven kinds of shit beat out of him for either minor slights or wholly imagined ones.

Thus making the early CAD running gag of Ethan being shot by arrows, stabbed by ninjas, etc. a reality.

Were my seething hatred for that sub-genre an energy source, I could help build anti-tsunami walls on all frequently-afflicted shorelines and Japan would be first.

If there was ever a robot that needed a factory reset, this Zeke would qualify for it.

Ah yes, the classic “SPLRNCH”. In all honestly, I feel like it might have had more of a squishy meatbag quality if it wasn’t for the “R”.

It can’t be too “squishy meatbag”, that spear is going clean through his sternum. That bone better make an “R” sound while it cracks or we’d lose all suspension of disbelief!

Gotta admit, that’s not exactly a blade-friendly spot to stab…

Well, it did have to go through the sternum. So… crunchy meatbag! 😀

All right. My lingering affection for oldtimeline!Zeke has been eliminated. I hope they smash him to pieces, and throw every piece into a fire.

Ay Vinland Saga in the background screen 😉 Just found this anime last week and loved it!

Awesome storyline! The only thing I would change are more frequent updates 😀 Regular 5 times a week would be dope with such long forms. I know it is probably impossible but one can dream…

I’d also add morning’s and evening updates!
But considering there’s a human being doing manual labor to create all this (free) content i’m already very happy with the current updates

I believe you can get more and or faster content by joining Tim’s patreon 😉

I’d take three comics a week with the quality of art that Tim puts out. Rather get something fantastic like this than something he has to rush and make compromises on. Heck, even Dinosaur Comics releases on a Monday-Wednesday-Friday schedule.

You can’t get past a 3 comic per week schedule without godly ability or a quality drop. Schlock Mercenary and Questionable Content are able to pull it off and it’s outstanding, but I’d rather have Gunnerkrigg Court or xkcd or, hm, CAD style stuff where it’s 3 instances a week of good quality. Also, he’s effectively doing this for free, though you can support him on Patreon and get earlier updates I think?.

Yeah – I’m a Patreon mmember supporting Tim:) So there is some extra stuff there and I already consume it 🙂 I just wish I could get even more! Of course you are all right – this is impossible without the quality going down… so I’m not proposing or suggesting anything. Just dreaming 🙂

He’s had that same length of scraggly neckbeard throughout. I don’t think you could ever call it ‘stubble’.

I’m pretty sure Zeke is throwing this fight on purpose. So far he has:released Ethan from his cell, thrown away his weapon, and purposefully chose to kill Ethan instead of Lucas mid fight. I think Ethan actually got through to him, but hes putting on a show so that The Master wont instagib him before the hack is complete

Someone should point out to Not-Zeke how human he is.

Only humans take such joy in hatred.

Gosh, I’m sure hearing that will just warm him right up to humanity.

This reminds me of my favourite fact I learned from a middle school history project on Shaka Zulu: The shorter shafted stabbing spear of the Zulu tribe was named the “iklwa”, which is straight up an onomatopoeia for the sound it makes when you pull it out of someone.

Am I the only one getting a Madara feel from Zeke blocking the spear with its arm? Like in the near end of naruto when he finally gets revived by the “good” tensei.
