So much for Al Dente.

Onward... And downward?

Very simple: He uses the axe's ability to break the fourth wall to toss it out of the comic into Twitter, which already is a layer of Hell.

Well, Ears has his life's defining quest... question is, is the rest of the GAP ready to follow him in so they can protect their clan back home...

I could be way off but here is a thought. complains is pretty demonic now right? not walter said if you know a demons name you can basically enslave them. When enslaved you can send them to hell as you saw in the maze of many with kin when they fought 32s not walter.

so maybe with complains help they can all go to hell?

"your name is complains of names. Now take us to hell and then you are free."

or maybe I am way off on how big ears can get to hell. *shrug*

Look at the dripping red stuff in the right side of the last panel. It starts directly above Ears.

Ah. No, I don't think that's meant to spell anything. In a similar situation a while back, he erased and redrew part of the panel when someone pointed out that the strands he was drawing spelled something like that, and he was annoyed about it. That kind of hidden message is not his thing.

Weird, I can't see it no matter how hard I look.

The human brain is just too good at finding patterns, even if they don't exist.

Look at Max in the final frame. Directly over his head is an incredibly obvious N. That is what first caught my attention because nothing droops down at a direct angle like that. The U over his right shoulder is also very obvious. The two Ts and the H are less obvious until you realize that the crossbars for the Ts are actually along the bar between frames and the crossbar of the H is just below it. IM is directly over Complains and is also pretty obvious. I'll admit I was just guessing about the HI because although it looks like the stuff to the left of I'M is probably forming letters, those letter's are a lot less clear than the I'm Thunt.

I just realized how aberrantly freakish the flea demon is... it has 5 fingers on each hand! Gross.

...I think. I had a few false starts and misleading patterns, too.

Well if we're talking about blood dripping at strange angles, isn't there another N near the middle of the panel too?

Maybe it says "No I'm Thunt."

What if...what if the demon is Thunt and the panels cracking represent the fourth wall being broken?


...Nah, that'd break our suspension of disbelief. But you're right Rocket, it does look like "Thunt" is just the end of a phrase.

Maybe it's an anagram?

It just occured to me that the staff Fumbles is holding looks a LOT like the staff Alt-Forgath had in the Maze of Many (the one with the many rings and the finger attached to the end of it).

Right? And that's about all the resemblance they have. Aegis, have you considered glasses? Or a new monitor/phone/tablet/whatever you're viewing on? They couldn't look much less alike and still both be wooden staves. :o_O:

I just want to point out that everyone except Ears and Fumbles took part in that fight.

Complains, MinMax, and Thaco immediately work together to defend Ears, without even thinking. Ears does not have to do anything.

That's kind of awesome.

Yes, I was appreciating that, too. Complains and Thaco defending Ears, that's kind of a given, but it's nice to see all three of them spontaneously working together. They're melding into a team.
