Demon Hunters: Back from the Dead – Page 43
Ha! Fakeout! But how about that other team, huh? Meet Chapter Zeta One. I’m sure we haven’t seen the last of them…
We did it, you guys! Our first full story in the bag! I’d say this calls for a celebration, but I think Ben’s already drunk. In any case, yay us, and yay you for sticking with us while we worked out the kinks. Some of the kinks. We’re still pretty kinky.
Up to this point we haven’t done much in the way of attracting new readers to the comic. We wanted to get a whole story under our belt first. Something that someone new to Demon Hunters could check out in its entirety without having to read week to week trying to figure things out on the fly. Well, now we’ve got that, so we’re putting out the call to arms! Tell your friends! Tell your enemies! Tell complete strangers on the bus! Spread the gospel of Demon Hunters far and wide! For the Brotherhood!
(Don’t worry though, you people reading this right now will always be our favorites!)
So that’s it from us for a little while. We’ve got a lot of work to get done on the behind-the-scenes side of things. But we shall return with Issue #2! Current tentative title: Demon Hunters: Sopa de Chicharos!
Yeah…that’s probably gonna change.
In the meantime, keep coming back for your regularly scheduled Storytime with KBC and your irregularly-but-starting-to-feel-more-regularly scheduled Purple Ninja: Truth to the Head! Listen to the Dead.FM podcast for Kentucky Blue Clay’s frequent guest appearances and some upcoming Demon Hunters sketches. And be sure to pick up your copy of the Demon Hunters RPG: A Comedy of Terrors, which is available for pre-order right now!
And for our Patreon patrons, keep an eye on the activity feed for updates, exclusives, and all of your belatedly fulfilled rewards. Trust me, they’re gonna be awesome!
And finally, thank you all again so much. This time last year, we weren’t sure anybody was going to give a crap about our weird little comic that we’d spent the last few years working on. It has been an absolute joy sharing this world with you over the past fifty-three weeks, and we hope you stick around, because we’ve got a whooooole lotta story left to tell. Buckle up, it’s gonna be a rough one.
Join the brotherhood, they said. Kill demons, they said.
Mop up goo left over from when other people kill monsters? That wasn’t on the list.
And they’ve been doing this for a year… poor, poor Omega
Unacomn is everywhere
Yeah, I know about you and Kat and the kink, Jimmy 🙂 And I’m still really happy that you’ve picked up the DH Universe–you and Ben (whose art is phenom and manages to look like Nate and Don without being enslaved to the movie look) have done a great job with it and made me proud. Not that you need to make me proud, but DG and DH still shaped a lot of my time and memories at good ol’ PNU, and I think the comics are a really great way to explore and expand the DH universe.
Take a break but come back soon!!!
Thanks for reading! We can’t wait to return. We’ve got a few tricks up our sleeves to make this series look and run its best. See you soon!
Well, that was unexpected 🙂
I really enjoyed the first story arc, each new page was eagerly expected. No clue what I will do with my tuesdays now that I will have to wait for new material for months instead of days 🙂
You really did a great job, Jimmy and Ben, and I will be the first to import the printed version to Germany, once it hits the market.
I will definitely continue to ride along 🙂
Oh, PLEASE tell me we are going to get a statup on Zeta One for the game!
Even as a PDF download or extra. Doesn’t have to be in the main book.
So much weirdness must be stated!
Seriously. I received the design packet and delighted over this crazy combination.
What a strange feeling… it’s demon hunters tuesday and nothing happens… 🙂
But we still have KBC and Purple Ninja to look forward to in the interim.
Plus, plenty of time to go back and re-read the Comic.
And Dead.FM and the new Kickstarters on the horizon. 🙂
Last night, Jimmy briefly panicked because I hadn’t sent him the new page yet.
Jesus Christ, man, take it easy on the cursing. That’s a bit too rough.
My apologies to any Grawlix-speaking cartoon people out there who are offended by my punctuation marks.
Not that part. The one after that. “Vybliadok” is a bit too much for a comic. I assume you were going for “son of a bitch” there. I’d suggest using “sookin syn” instead, it’s a bit more family friendly.
That is indeed what I was going for. Nothing I found while researching Ukranian profanity indicated that it was particularly severe. The translations were either “son of a bitch” or “bastard”. Good to know. I’ll keep it in mind when we’re making edits for the print version. Thanks!
To be honest, I think it kinda adds character to him. Of course “bastard” would be lighter than “son of a bitch”. And though it is just a comic, it’s still the demon hunters, and cursing is a common thing when your everyday job is slaying demons.
Also it’s not the first time someone said “sonovabitch” before
Well, maybe, but it’s little nuances. Curse words in different languages have different emotional weight to them. “Vybliadok” has an extremely angry tone to it. Like, so angry, that character saying it probably would be mid-rampage. I’ve never even heard it spoken. Ever. Even in war movies.
Try “ublyudok”, it also means bastard but is way less rough. Exactly something a priest would say.
Perfect! Thanks for the help, ArcherK!
Nice ending. I see my crew isn’t the only one to include an unstoppable statue girl.
Now I kind of care about these guys. When Duamerthrax kills all but Gabriel (and kinda sorta Silent Jim) how will I cope?
Well, since this is an alternate universe reboot, anything could happen!
Yay for alternative timelines / universes / reboots!
You missed a spot.
This is a great comic, are there going to be more updates?
Absolutely! We’re on hiatus at the moment while we scramble to finish up Demon Hunters: A Comedy of Terrors, an action-comedy roleplaying game coming out aaaaaaany day now. Look for the comic to start up again some time this fall.
OK guys the game is out, time to get the comic going again!
Like now! Like before now! Please!
I need my DH fix. Because I have a problem, and Demon Hunters is the fix!
Oh, it’s coming. There may even be some actual demon hunting this time!
Good and glad to hear!
Also, let’s get the game forum up and running. I’ve got a bunch of characters I would like peer reviewed. And maybe we can do an “official” Demon Hunter chapter list with player submissions (I call dibs on Psi 15 btw!)
Happy New Year! May 2016 be the Year of Demon Hunters!
We’d love to look at your characters! You should post some in the Facebook group.
I’ll ask Don what his plans for a game forum are, that’s a good idea.
I don’t do the Facebook thing. Not because I’m a Neo-Luddite or anything.
Actually, that’s EXACTLY why. 🙂
I did however start a thread on RPG.net. My fav online hangout.
Sweet! Looks like Cam’s in there already, doing his thing.
Came across this awesome webcomic while looking up DG related stuff, binge read it in a very short period found out about the movies, watched them all then reread now getting the references and preorder a copy of the players guide in about a week! I think it’s the fastest I’ve ever become obsessed with a new series! Can’t wait for my copy of the players guide pdf!
That’s great! Sorry the binge was so short, but we’re coming back soon.
No problem man, I enjoyed it! Haven’t had much time to play lately between work and parenthood, but I’m gonna see if I can’t get some people together for at least a one shot..ps, Isaac’s my favorite character from the game night episodes! I instantly knew what you meant by Constantine\supernatural style, two of my favorite series!
Don’t forget the dash of Always Sunny, it’s probably the most prominent piece.
“We’re coming back soon.”
…He said almost two years ago.
Been meaning to watch that show, just so much good TV out there. Admittedly hidden amongst a ten ton pile of crap that is reality tv
My book showed up, and it’s sooooo cool.
Looks great with the leather cover and Brotherhood logo.
Thanks for the great work guys!
Thanks for your support! We’re all thankful for the great reception these have gotten!
It’s been a year. Are we getting back on the road, or is this on indefinate leave?
Please give us some kind of ETA on a new chapter.
Sorry for the late response. Right now, I’m working to get all the promised Patreon rewards caught up. As soon as they’re finished, we can start production on the next chapter. I’m working my ass off to make sure this happens as soon as possible.
It’s cool Ben. You’ve got stuff, I get that. I was just afraid this had gone by the wayside.
Thanks for the update. Stay cool.
Is this webcomic dead? I hope not, it seems to have potential. 🙂
Not dead. Just sleepy. Life has a nasty habit of getting in the way of things we’d rather be doing. It’ll come back some day, hopefully not TOO far in the future. That said, if you’re looking for more Demon Hunters stuff… https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/deadgentlemen/demon-hunters-sol-webseries 🙂
It’s uncanny how many distractions I’ve run into in the last…
two years, holy shit.
Two years goes by really fast. In contrast, one month goes by really slow. I binged the entire comic, and I really hope you guys find time to get it up and running again. Ahhhhhh….
This whole comic was an elaborate April Fool’s joke.
That’s what I’ll claim when they finally fire me, heh.
I’m not sure this comic is coming back.
I get your skepticism. I’m ashamed of how long it’s taken me to get my ducks in a row. I hope you’ll keep an eye on us for a little while longer. Thanks for reading.
Oh my god, pleeeaase do more! I have to know what happens next! Even if it’s just a picture of Gabriel and Jim having a beer with no dialogue!
Yeah. Uh, looks like the whole gang is DOA. Even DG is lost and gone forever, dreadful sorry… (i suspect nobody will get that reference.)
It ain’t over yet!
:profuse sweating internally:
Apparently we have in fact seen the last of them.
There’s still a chance!
