I didn’t notice, until now, the wolf reflection in the deers eye.
It’s an elk -_-
elk are deer.
Actually, elk are moose. So it would not be an elk.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elk actually, they are deer
In North America elk are deer, in Northern Europe they are moose.
(I read about it in a book about Finland.)
So…elk are moose and elk are deer, all belong to the deer family and they all are irregular plurals.
Pretty much, the only thing that separates the two is an ancient migration across the land bridge.
So it’s a deer
That’s the thing: elk, moose, caribou, whatever; they’re all technically types of deer. So… yes.
for future reference this would be a good place for a citation/tittle of the book.
Enchantment of the World: Finland by Martin Hintz
Similar to how the Chilean blue/Black chested eagle is just the Chilean blue eagle outside the US but inside the US it’s called a buzzard. Metric vs. Standardized. Oy vey.
Sorry to be a killjoy, but deer pupils are horizontal ovals.
Fun fact, the eyes will rotate to align the horizontal pupil/maintain parallelism with the horizon. 😀
I can’t wait for the remake of this page so everyone can needlessly argue again over proper cervidae terms.
And now everyone’s calling it reindeer!
Quick, someone get some random kids’ show song about harmony or somesh*t.
Oh man, this page is beautiful!
oh my…WALLPAPER for the first panel! please!!
I think all new wallpapers have been reserved for patrons only, so we’re all gonna have to start saving up |D
amazing new page
Omg it’s beautiful! And Gebo is howling instead of Isa! Nice! Somehow it just fits better than it did when it was Isa. I guess since Gebo is more submissive and inexperienced and all. This also is more amazing because there’s more deer or elk or whatever they are rather than just one. It’s more realistic. And the last panel, fucking EPIC!
Poor Gebo. All he is good for is howling. He really is Toboe(howling).
Hey I never said that. It just fits him a bit better because based on his submissive and gentle personality, he really doesn’t seem like the type that’d hunt and kill. At least he’s not a snotty entitled teenager like Iki (my opinion).
I know. But if you notice Gebo also howls in the later chapters. That’s why I said all he is good for is howling.
I’m still waiting for the Thing to become a Thing. I think if Gebo knew what we think of he might howl us to death. XD
Oh! I am finally making it. I apologize for how long it took, my Photoshop Touch had stopped working properly and wouldn’t save ANY of my art, and kept crashing, AND even went and automatically deleted my stuff! DX I deleted the app itself and re-downloaded it and now it’s working better. Now to be sure it doesn’t pull any bullshit on me, I now save all my work into my camera roll right after saving it on PS so I don’t lose any of it.. But hey! I have made two pages of the Thing so far! 😀
If Gebo is Toboe, then Raigho is Tsume.
Mmmm Raigho in leather.
But he’d just be a doggy in a silly leather jacket.
…IS THERE HUMAN FANART OF THESE WOLVES YET?!
I actually did make a human bender of them like back in 2014.
Let me find it somewhere in my infinite number of sketch books. Lol ^^;
Let the RaighoxGebo shipping commence!
It’s a reference to obessed yaoi fangirls who love pairing Tsume and Toboe together. Idk why they’d pairing them together though. Too much crotchcannons.
Oh. Yeah that is weird. People are weird lol
So, how many yaoi/yuri fans does this fandom have?
Legions i tell you, legions
Finally, grabbing the straggler from the herd makes more sense as opposed to your initial page where it was a random ass deer in the wasteland. Lol. Logic! 😀
and dont forget the mega unrealistic smack down reighgo did.
He’s gotta go for the rump.
Always go for the rump.
Like this 😀
but it was so badass though
If you were to look at Reigho’s resume, you’d see that he is a retired WWE champ.
Is that a wolf dick sheath on Jera in the first panel? Jera is a shemale?! O.O
Omg you’re right it does look like it, but maybe it’s a hoof from the background? O.o
Looks to far from the elk’s body to be an actual hoof. The shape isn’t right.
Of course that is the first mistake we notice about this page xD
The second panel is my favourite.
lol dose jera have a dick XD
Lmfao it sure looks like it
oh hello white wolf
Yeah long time no see
She’s the man, after all. I had a feeling.
Jera is so gender confused that she takes her frustration out on Iki.
I thought it was the hoof of an elk. They’ll have to fix it I guess lol
Love the perspective on the second panel!
NOOOOooooo… swag deer you will be missed.
Gone but not 4gotten
2 gud 2 b 4gotten.
;-; this is terrifyingly awesome.
Fehu:)Tell me, do you bleed? Nom nom nom nom
This makes so much more sense. No Deus Ex Deeriana. A real heard, and PLAN OF ATTACK! Jera should be a commander. Gebo looks so majestic. If only he were real. First and second panel need to be wallpapers. SOOOOooooo…………when’s the next update, girls? *shot*
Panel one Gebo be like: BITCH I’M FABULOUS! EVEN MORE FABULOUS THAN ARCHBISHOP FAB!
It’s too much for the cervid, he’s blinded!
The redone pages are so beautiful, you no idea how much artgasm I am having right now.
Why does Jera have a sheath?
Because I pointed it out first.
Well gee, don’t have to be rude.
No one does.
“Because I pointed it out first” comes off as very rude.
Only if you take it personally. 😉
Besides, I’m not being rude, I’m just being Jera’s new appendage: a possible dick. 😀
alright man have fun with that
Yep, it’s the wine.
*sips cold German Bier cooly*
I think the wine I drank is making things more funny than they should be. Ahh, wine, you are a man’s best friend, moderately speaking.
Instead of a book club it should be a webcomic club where we all get drunk on booze and just rant about the topical webcomic.
Nah man, it’s all about that moonshine! XD
Well, I guess Jera can remove acrobat from her resume now. XD
weird, i remember you said somewhere you’re gonna delete “the hunt scene” anyway, good page. nice to see gebo getting different treatment in the remake.
see you next month.
uhhh… jera? there is a little something between your… uh….someone explain plz??
jera: day 32, they still think i’m female….
I know it’s a really weird angle in that first panel, but that’s actually the reindeer’s hind hoof 🙂
yea it’s obviously not a sheath (they don’t even draw it on the males either) just funny to point out : P it’s very hard not to look at it, i feel it’s better if they didn’t even bother with the hind hoof at all xD;;
I can understand if it’s a hind hoof but it seriously looks like the wrong shape for the tip of a hoof. You know what I mean?
And (ohmygerd, spell check, I will murder you.)
it’s the reindeers hoof ^^””’ not a penis
they may have meant the goat hunting scene that happens later.
Oh so now Gebo is howling, they’re hunting a reindeer and they don’t have any problem catching it. Many changes in this one
But now they need Raigho to make the kill shot.
The howling messenger now is gebo, and didn’t know that Isa was good hunter!, perhaps because She is always with Iki, and she had told her brother that “he has never hunted prey”
As I always say … gorgeous work, congratulations to the authors / artists
OH THEY CHANGED IT ;A; XD it’s NOT GEBO howling instead of ISA X33
SO MUCH IMPROVMENT XD
What is that under Jera’s belly? She’s not a male!
it’s called fur and the art of shading it :’D
the reindeer’s hind hoof I think? Nothing else makes sense ot me since I am pretty sure the author’s know that she is female :’D
It is the wrong shape of you are implying that is a hoof.
That scenery! Those gorgeous angles! The logic of there being an actual herd of reindeer! This page is wonderful.
It’s also a little too round to be hoof. Therefore…..I don’t know what it is.
Wooh, new page! Hunting hoofed animals in FULL HD, sponsored by our background singer (and lighting technician; he’s that fab), Snowdrift Gebo!
Good thing Fehu didn’t get a face full of that hoof, reindeer/elk/caribou/deer/whatever-cervid give nasty kicks.
Anyway, get either Raigho or Iki in on the bite, and they can all carry the cervid away! (almost like having wolves for legs)
HD CHOMP CHOMP CHOMPS are wonderful :]
Ana, Kate, Jessi….we are gender confused. Please enlighten us with your creational wisdom?
Ana, Kate, Jessi…….we are gender confused. Please come down from on high and enlighten us with your creational wisdom?
The “please come down from on high and enlighten us” just made this whole debate funnier.
Lol And Neymar is yelling at the sky “what is it?” XD
Sorry I had to. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=etUKqrHaqc4
Omg the damage ive done by knocking over one domino lol
I always knew she was hiding something!
“What is that under Jera??” “Looks like a dick shaft” “too round to be a dick shaft maybe it’s a hoof” “nope too round to be a hoof it’s gotta be a dick shaft” “what the fuck is it???” GUYS ……It’s like the dress all over again!
Jera is confirmed female (Page 19 of the redo, “Mom found Iki!” plus everywhere else in the novel, with no hints at LGBT characters so far), so this is almost definitely just some accidental poor placement that was overlooked. I’m loving the debate about it though. 😀
Plus that she is Isa’s biological mother. Maybe a tuft of fur sticking out, or meant to show that they are very thin right now and organs can be seen through the belly (though I doubt it). O.o
That’s a hernia……a gastric hernia…..it’s very painful…..there is no way anyone would be running like that with a gastric hernia…..lolz
we all know shes full female, its just a joke because of what it looks like.
Chiiilllll dude. This fandom is well known for nitpicking the creators mistakes in a very funny fashion.
Yes, we are the editors to edit for free.
Sorry if I seemed agitated, didn’t mean to offend at all. You’re all lovely crazy people.
No offense was taken! 🙂 I think I misunderstood the tone of your post.
And I’m the one who unintentionally started it all heh heh ^^; lol
Literally no one cares who noticed first. Literally no one.
Literally, I don’t care that you care or if anyone else cares, Queerly Queen.
But if I hadn’t said it, it would have been a while before anyone said or even noticed anything. XD
In all fairness, I highly doubt it would have been a while. A handful of the comments I saw didn’t look like replies to your original, but more like quick initial observations by readers who probably hadn’t even scrolled through the comment section yet.
I see so. Perhaps.
But the point is, I’m not trying to sound gloaty or anything. I’m just pointing out the obvious. 🙂
Err… I think that last bit is a little too edgy Maxim. I doubt you intended it to be, but I think it’s walking on a pretty narrow line to a serious topic for a lot of people. The original comment was kind of hostile too, but ehhh… :/ Sorry.
What original comment? And damn seems like most of the guest accounts are more sensitive than a catz whiskers.
i actually kind of agree.
the comments just seemed to go on a little too far for a joke. :>
Julie Queerly’s “literally no one” comment. Turning Queerly into Queerdo seems a little unwarranted, to clarify, since it could be a slur applied to a lot of people. I know you’re 99% of the time just being funny (and VERY successful at that), but idk, maybe I am being too sensitive. It just came off as a bit too much, hah.
nah your not. i get what he was trying to do by mixing weirdo and queerlys name together to be a little playful and funny.
it just ended up backfireing and the joke flopped over dead.
At least you understood the joke. 😀
Yeah no offense to you, but you do sound a bit sensative. Plus isnt the last name Queerly sugestive in itself to be directed at certain people? I mean come on! Its the same priciple as taking Hitler’s name and calling him Shitler. Lol
Lets not get politically correct, lets just relax. 😉
( fun fact about me, i dont hate gay people just incase you were worried so just chillll now :D)
Oh don’t worry, I wouldn’t think that you were homophobic at all, having stalked the comic’s comments since the jewish Gebo days. 🙂 Figured it was totally in good humor, but thought I’d just give you a heads up that it sounded bad (because of mixing weirdo with queer). Anyways, yeah, lets just relax and enjoy the comic. Thanks for the calm discussion.
(Also, I should just make an account already… I’ve been “Anon” for a few pages now)
join us, jooooin us, jooooin us, jooooin us. c8
One of us one of us one of us 8)
*thumbs up* ;D נהדר
Wow, not only are you an attention monger, you make jokes about gay people. You’re a real gem.
Oh G-d another sensative person.
I think you just hate me based on your assumptions of my humor. Also i used your name as a play on words. It was not an attack on gay people.
(For more, see jokes about artists, jokes about Germans, jokes about Jews, and puns etc.)
Mostly because I was sick of seeing you repeatedly tell people ‘I noticed first’, like it was the only accomplishment you’ve ever achieved (which I would not be surprised is the case)
That was once. That wasnt repeatedly.
Secound, thank you for being so judgmental that you dont know how this place works and that eveything has to be so straight that no jokes can be taken. So yes, thanks for being so queerly judgemental.
*throws glitter for you*
Nah buddy you said it to “me, the one and only” too. That’s at least twice you were obnoxious af, which is two times too many, geez.
Your jokes suck. Kudos for telling people they’re ‘too sensitive’ when your homophobic jokes offend them. That really shows what a spectacular member of the human race you are.
This might blow your mind, but you can make jokes that aren’t offensive to a group of people who are still, in this day and age, being murdered for being queer.
You can also stop being obnoxious, if such a thing is possible for you.
Okay you need a lesson in the origin of humor: since the beginning of time mankind has eased his suffering by making light of dark and depressing situations. Thus every bit of humor has branched off really dark topics.
For example: how many cops does it take to change a light bulb? No, they just beat the room for being black.
Also that was play. If you want me to be rude i can be rude. But people will only take rudeness with a serious tone. If you take a joke with lightheartedness you cant accuse anyone of rudeness.
Also im not going to argue with you over the definition of “homophobia”
Because you just want to find anything to pin me down becuase you hate me.
But i will say this: you are the biggest Humorphobe ive ever come across.
Even Iranians have a better sense of humor than you do. Oy frickin vey.
Buddy I’m gay af. Nice try trying to talk over a gay person when they tell you you’re problematic. A+ dude. My condolences for your stupidity, that must be hard to live with. I feel a shred of genuine pity on your behalf.
Yepp. Youre gay so what. (and that explains your last name )If youre gay own up to it. Dont take everything so personally, just be like “yeah, thats right. Im gay.” if you are so offended by someone making an affactionate comment about being gay, then arent you admitting that you being gay is a bad thing? Thats admitting shame.
Isnt that what your gay pride is about? Woopdy-tap-dancing-do! Because pride is about you. So you should have enough security in yourself to ease up and make fun yourself every once in a while.
I make fun of myself at times becuase im not so in secure about who i am.
And for the last time “queerdo” wasnt a gay joke. It was a play on words. As the Lovely and understanding Reddog said “Queerly + weirdo= Queerdo” its a play on words.
So not my problem if you cant take any jokes.
Im fucking Jewish and i make fun of myself. I dont care when people make jokes about Jews, whether its meant out of affection or meant strictly as an asshole. So what?! I dont get upset about it because i know its not true and im not ashamed of being Jewish. Ive hung out with Rabbis who literally have encyclopedias on Jewish jokes, despite the fact that our people are the most persecuted people on the planet. More than homosexuals.
So you want to know about talking over someone: Mazel tov! You just met a freaking Jew and, achi, we can out talk everyone.
So please take advise from someone who has been there and done that: dont take everything so personally no natter what context it was said in.
If you have a so what attitude about this kind of situation, then that shows people that “hey whatever this person says isnt true and i dont take their passive nonsense seriously.”
So there. Thats how you handle it.
Im saying this to help you on how to handle people by the way.
Friend, I think you lack basic reading comprehension. At no point did I say I thought being gay was a bad thing. You made a joke that was homophobic (and lacking any real originality, a shame) and seem to have trouble owning up to that. It’s okay, bud. Enjoy being vapid, they say ignorance is bliss. Just maybe keep your mouth shut next time; another thing they say is that it’s better to be thought an idiot than to open your mouth and remove all doubt. For future reference.
Riiiiiiiiiiight then youve proven my point about yourself.
I’m not sure you even know what your point is. Lovely as your interaction is, I’ve grown tired of it- and thoroughly bored. Farewell, homophobe, enjoy having the last word; I’m sure it’s very important to you.
Maxim, come on now. You’re better than this. I’ve seen you being much, much better than this. Surely you know better.
You offended someone after making a direct statement at them with a twisted version of their name. You can continue verbally beating on them for not understanding you, or you can say “whatever, didn’t mean to offend” and move on, saving you, them, and everyone a lot of wasted time scrolling through comments (notice that an apology isn’t even necessary.) You can’t keep blaming everyone else for not getting you and accepting flattery and feedback only when it’s convenient.
Was it confrontational and maybe even unnecessary for them to tell you “literally no one” cares? Of course it was. It could have just as easily been handled through private messages or a polite request for the behavior to stop. However, anyone can see where they’re coming from. She’s right in that you have been awfully vocal about letting people know that you were the first one to notice a detail when in truth, you were only the first one to say something about it. The number of people who noticed Jera’s nonexistent dick “first” increased quite a bit through the next 24 hours. Replying to people who were just making an observation just so you can make sure they know you isn’t just unwarranted, it’s the kind of behavior that’s openly looked down on in other comment section communities. Youtube may be full of sh*t people, but when it comes to this topic, they admittedly have the right of it. Besides that, nobody asked for “Penis Observer 0.” Randomly telling anyone that you noticed something first just makes them feel uncomfortable and can even take the humor and lightheartedness out of the situation for them. It’s not cool.
And truth be told, this Queerly (or Queerdo as you so eloquently put it) kind of makes a point. You have a good sense of humor, I’ll give you that, but you have a tendency to get rather pushy when you think that humor hasn’t been noticed enough. I remember the way you’d troll impatient fans way back when. That was funny. The Jewish Gebo thing was also funny. I won’t say it wasn’t, because it was a fun joke. But as the weeks went by, it only left a stale taste in my mouth. The main reason most people even remember that joke was because of how pushy you were with it. You didn’t get enough comments the first time, so you kept answering every comment wondering where Gebo was, with that picture. That picture. Every time. When a select few voices started complaining, you just changed the style of the image.
You have also made rather surprising comments concerning race, such as telling one member once “You’re like a black woman who can’t take good jokes on race” (just a note, maybe black people wouldn’t be so sensitive if they weren’t still having to deal with hate crime today; by the way, hate crime has been increasing.) Blanket statements like “even Iranians have a better sense of humor than you do” kind of implies someone who puts a lot of stock in another person’s race, ethnicity, what-have-you. When you finally came back from your hiatus, I was glad to have you back, believe me I was… but then you responded to someone’s inquiry about your boyfriend with some statement like “Oh, he left me and started dating some Mexican replacement of me.” May I ask why the Mexican thing was so important? Just calling her a slut with no specific race mentioned would have been just fine, you know.
I’m not trying to rail on you or anything, I’m just saying, there’s a difference between people not getting your sense of humor and one just kind of being ignorant about how their words and actions may affect anyone else. That’s all.
max is also missing the fact that queerdo is a letter away from queero. which is a HIGHLY known bullying insult to gay people and has been for YEARS in America.
even waaaaaaaaay before the micromanaging of the PC movement began. its even become a stereotypical bullying word in movies, tvs, and books for ages.
i useually like maxs jokes, but this one just turned into beating the body of a dead cow since the horse turned to mush.
at first someone didint get he was jokeing. and when the person pointed out it was rude. max didint say jk or anything to show it was simply a joke, he just kept pushing the joke and claiming the person was offended. then he tried spreading it. which fell flat in horrible ways.
there have also been mutiple comments of “he found it” one being an entire convo around it
1 you got the whole convo that started with:
“becuase i found it”
which lets be honest, didint seem like a joke. just a plain statement. then he kept dragging it on.
2 the one to goldenwolf:
“And I’m the one who unintentionally started it all heh heh ^^; lol ”
3 the one to frankie:
“Meeeeee! Lol jk. It was some misplaced pixels trying to be masculine. ”
max you need to know that everybody has there own sense of humor. and claiming someone is “sensitive, too PC, and offended” becuase they didint like your joke makes an ass out of yourself.
honestly i thought you were drunk or possibly high becuase you kept pushing it. like when high people think of something normal and find it oddly soooo funny they cant stop to breath there laughing so hard.
then you push out stuff like this:
“Besides, I’m not being rude, I’m just being Jera’s new appendage: a possible dick. 😀 ”
“Only if you take it personally. 😉 ”
“Everybody says that. Lol But in all seriousness if that were to happen i
would have to implore the audiance to leave all the know and hold dear
at the door becuase they are about to entre a whole new world that they
may or may not like lol. Ah humor, how terribly misunderstood you are.”
your just looking like a total asshole thats going:
“iam really funny, its just that no one gets me becuase iam on a higher tier of humor. all these people dont get real humor so they get angry when they dont get the joke.”
no, its simply becuase your jokes suck, you didint deliver them right, and you wernt able to get the person to properly understand enough to happily go along with the joke. which are the exact opposite of the 3 holy rules of humor you dont go against.
stop beating the dead cow and realize YOU messed up. and that no one is just “too sensitive”.
Because there is a difference between describing someone and actually being racist. -__-
Sorry for being honest.
But i do wish some people would understand the differnces.
all right max quite being dense. now your just being unreasonable. your the one using “oh it was just a joke xd lolz, quite frankly like any common troll would say in an argument, which i know you aren’t. you drug out homophobia and immediately went to gays cant judge me for any thing “because prosecution of the jews”. as an excuse for acting rude. i don’t know what happened to you in the last year because you’ve clearly had a change since you where here before, but cut the sarcastic act because thats just being insulating.
Wait, thats what you got from all that? Okay, allow me to spell it out for you:
Well sorry if i did come off as rude but i sure as hell did not drag out homophobia.
Where do you people even get that idea that i drug out homophobia.
Also common trolls name call and swear at insignificant things (like KibaWolf did).
I had valid points and all i did was not take Queerly’s argument seriously.
There was nothing homophobic about the argument nor the play on words. Also the whole “you shouldn’t joke about anything gay period because gays are being killed” is stupid. If thats the case, then why dont we protest family guy or Archer? (and jeeze Ray Gellet is my favourite character in that series) because those shows joke about homosexuality.
And if you do your history and demographics correctly out of all the persecuted people groups on this planet throughout time have been the Jewish people.
I immedtaitely went to “lighten up”. And wow, i know this fandom but i never thought this would happen.
So im terribly sorry you took it that way. But i am not the one who is dense.
As far as I know, she went Jewish.
I think somebody doesn’t, like Maxim……. <__>
Somebody called for me? 😀
Literally no one is here! Yay! Lol
actually it’s ME, who noticed it first, not someone else.
You know…. The Dress. It was all over the Internet a long time ago, where people were debating over what colour it was. And now the debate about whether the unidentified ‘piece’ attached to Jera is just a hoof or a dick shaft, reminds me of the debates people had about the dress. XD
Oh, that’s right!
I always wondered how Raigho would see it.
2 shades of grey. :v
I think they changed jera and Jebo place
she had a sex change surgeryhahaha
as madame said.
my best guess is its not a hoof, because its a really odd spot. the elks leg would be stretched pretty far back.
i think maybe they had fehu in front, but did a line up change and possibly forgot to erase a certain detail. :>
Oh. My. Gawd.
It’s a tuft of belly fuzz, not a dick or a hoof.
…It just didn’t translate well to a smaller size. Whoops~
Sorry to ruin the fun, folks. ;D
It’s all good. You just came down and answered my summoning lol.
Have a nice day, hardworker!
It’s just a mistake, because our eyes think it’s a…. you know? but you explain it that it’s bunch of fuzzy fur on Jera’s belly. So no 1 faults in here. Just a mistake
But still, i’m laughing so hard on what your reaction as the result xD.
regardless. You might want to erase that “tuft of belly fuzz” or the jokes will continue. All I could think about when reading this panel was this song, lol. Sorry. I had to. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=etUKqrHaqc4
Im crying XDDDD Oh my gosh XDD I love you…. I love this XD i never knew this existed until now….
i would have loved to hear the conversation as you told the girls.
“guys that tuft of fur turned bad. everyone saw a penis on jera. :>”
“Just didn’t translate well into a smaller size.”
The mistake is hilarious because it seems so intentional, i mean, is the only belly fur you can see clearly from far and its placed in the perfect spot.
Just gonna say, love it. ^^
Just w8 till i post something in this page xD
what’s the dick that everyone is talking about?? lmao i cant see anything
Meeeeee! Lol jk. It was some misplaced pixels trying to be masculine.
*DIES OF LAUGHTER* You should be a comedian.
Everybody says that. Lol
You must be part British then. Those people aren’t afraid to hold anything back. Seriously, watch one of their Parliament meetings, and Farage going after the EU leaders. Which reminds me, how’s Merkel’s popularity recently?
Nope. Just a Yekke. And a fairly shameless one at that.
Pfffft. Not good.
I hear they throw shoes in there.
I wish my Congress were as exciting.
First panel, look at Jera. XD
I think it’s a hoof… :v
That strategy is a little weird, wolves usally attack directly the neck or the snout.
They’re acting out their new choreography, “Tańczący z wilkami“. Lights (sun), music (Gebo), and the stage (snow) was all set up for this moment.
thats mainly after they bring it down or at least slow it. they need to get it down/ slow it first by biteing the legs. once its slowed or falls by tripping by off balance the wolfs go for the throat, face, and belly to kill it.
Jera gave up hope that her pitiful husband would teach Iki how to be a man, so she decided to become a man and do it herself. You go girl guy!
When you want something done right it is best to do it yourself. XD
Wait, Rook i have a new one!
Be a man! We must be swift as a hunting wolfpack
Be a man! An take down our caribou (deer thing)
Be a man! We thought at first Jera was our mother
But eyes cant seem to always know the truuuuuuth
So Iki is Mulan now? XD
Pffft Iki is the reason why Mulan drafted herself.
Raigho: (stroking beard) “Ooooh Iki! You great White Spirit! Save us all, you must!”
Iki: “meh……dont feel like it…….LEMMING!”
TAKERU-SAAAN! Why did you change you namae?
For the sake of a joooke nuuuuu D:
Time to legally change my name back
For the truth, I like the name you use of it. I don’t know the meaning of it but i would remain it as a special.
NOOOO TANK WHY ;-;
You know what really is impressive about this page? The amazing snow splatter detail in the second panel. Now that motion is incredible! 😀
NAAAAAAAAAANTS ingonYAAAAAAAAAAma bagithi baba
for listening pleasure. :3
Eh, the Max I knew was the one from way back. Max was never as rude as this, at least in a serious way, so I’m keeping that other image of Maxi to remember. :/
It’s a shame. Maxim is a classic member, it was nice having her around again. 🙁
So I’ve been looking at the first panel for a few minutes now, and the longer I look at it, the more derpy the singled out reindeer looks. You look at his pals in the background and they’ve all inherited the swag-ness of swag deer with full necks and bootiful golden coats and just resemble a well taken picture and then this poor guy looks like a half beaten, skinny giraffe neck. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
We still love him. At least I do. I think.
well, wolfs do go after the old and sickly of the heard. so maybe hes one of those. :v
I didn’t know hunting could be so majestic.
Only in the comics. Real hunting is nothing like this.
Uhh, what the hell happened to Maxim, my Furher?
kinda hard to summarize, but heres sorta the gist of it.
max kept repeatedly saying “i found the penis”
got into a small argument with someone who asked “what penis?” and max said ” because i found it”. which the anon said was rude, and max dissed it off with “only if you take it personally. ;)”
that person later joined and got even angrier and told them to stop after max said for the 3rd or 4th time “she found it”.
max tried to play a joke by turning queerlys name into queerdo (queerly + weirdo mixed). and both me and another anon warned max that, that was going toward a bit of a anti-gay slur. and that she really shouldn’t use that.
when queerly got upset from the changed name and stated it was quite homophobic. instead of taking it seriously and apologizing, max continued calling her queerdo and claiming its just a joke and shes getting all “PC, overly sensitive and cant take a joke”
then max went on a rant saying she cant get upset becuase she herself is a jew and they were the most oppressed over gays or any race. so she saw nothing wrong with making the queerdo joke since she can take jew jokes. and “people who cant make fun of themselves are too sensitive and uptight”.
finally me, shop, and skylily had enough of max taking this “joke” waaaay too far as a whole argument over it went back and forth between queerly and max. you can still see queerlys comments and the first 2 or 3 down summarize maxs comments before it.
I witnessed everything up to the first bit of the Queerly incident. I’ll be honest, at first I didn’t understand why “queerdo” would be homophobic because I’ve been reading more Spanish lately. It messes up my pronunciation of certain English words. (I pronounced “queerdo” as ‘keh-ehr-doh.’) I didn’t realize it was insulting until I pronounced in English.
yeah, queerdo is a letter away from queero. which is a HIGHLY offensive gay slur in America.
so much so its like the top stereotypical insults in movies, tv, and books by bullys and such besides the N word for blacks.
I honestly have never heard the word “queero” before.
I never realized that word was an offense in the first place.
Is it worse than the f- word? D:
I live under a rock, don’t judge me plz
Queer is sometimes considered offensive, but lots of people in the community use it just to describe themselves and don’t find it to be bad. Sometimes there’s a Q added to LGBT, just as a term, I’d say in modern day it’s not awful. Maybe about same as calling someone gay nowadays– at least where I live, it makes the person who said it look way worse than the one insulted. 🙂
Queerdo and queero are both a good bit worse because they are almost always used negatively as insults. Weirdo is sometimes used affectionately, but usually not, and queero has always been a harsh insult as reddog said.
It’s kind of sad to see Max go over something that really started so small, but I have to agree with others; something seems to have changed with her. It would be cool for her to come back after taking Sky Lily’s words to heart. I don’t believe Max is a bad person, but there were a couple things she seemed to not fully understand, and maybe having been told will be helpful to her in time.
(And no no Tak, don’t feel bad, we love you! :D)
exactly, queer as an insult has mostly lost its sting in recent years, and practically useless as an insult in certain areas like mine where its just used to describe someone as gay with a different word. so its okay to use, but still you should have minor expectation of a negative reaction due to its negative history in earlier years.
i dont believe max was purposely trying to hurt people. she just didint see what was wrong. however there was a small shift in her talking and today was a sudden plunge. hopefully she comes back, realizing her mistake, and apologizes for it.
Anon, I don’t know much about the LGBT community, but isn’t calling oneself or someone else ‘queer’ insulting, even if is someone who has the same opinion/sexuality preference? Queer does mean ‘strange’ or ‘abnormal’ after all.
I’m not “in” the community either, unless as a straight ally counts, but I have several friends in it. Basically, nowadays it’s been adopted as a blanket term for anyone not straight or cisgender (doesn’t refer to any specific identity though). So I suppose it’s picked up a third meaning now that has lost its edge as an insult. You’re right, it does mean strange or abnormal in different contexts. Personally I avoid using it unless a person has said it’s okay, but it’s mostly accepted as a term just as “gay” or “trans” are. 🙂
Another word that has changed for the worse is (just for another example of words changing meaning) “retarded”. If I’m not mistaken, it used to be a fairly polite term, but now, helllll nah.
I’ve never heard of queerdo, but queer. Faggot I think is more offensive-since it has a stake-burning tone to it. Fag=bundle of wood=execution for the condemned.
Oooh, that makes sense.
All I could think of it is that it rhymes with maggot.
I actually wasn’t the person who she told ‘only if you take it personally’, but seeing that response was part of the reason I signed up to say something, for certain.
ah well, point still stands that it was still rude of max to reply like that to someone who obviously was not happy with the “joke” before it.
I agree 100%.
shop, mine, and skylilys comments also some it up too.
I like how the pack is actually acting the elk this time around instead of being all weak ass and not being able to catch it for Rhaego to come in like “oh I got dis” XD haha
I LOVE IT.
Though…. Why does Jera have a masculine gender on panel 1?….. o_o plz tell me that’s a hoof of a deer…….
its actually belly fur that just didint shrink well with the image. jessie confirmed. =]
Was just lookin at the other comments, who is Max everyone’s talking about? That he/she died…? ?-?
I don’t know much about Max but i can say in a respectful way
Max is a part of a pioneer like the others in here on those days since i’m just a new fan in here like 2yrs from now. And check on the Lower comments where Artista bring up the conversation, you’ll understand why since you’re new in here asking to know on what you seek. 😀
something just seemed very different about her when she came back. the old max was normally the laid back voice of reason.
WHAAAAAAAAT?!! MAX IS A SHE?!!. I always wonder how Max was awesome in your history.
max aka maxim was a long time member of the off white community since waaaaaaay back during the first 2 chaps were first being made.
she was known for making jokes, art and many funny memes. until she decided to leave on a hiatus for real life stuff.
recently she returned, but it seems like she had a negative shift in personality. and a few days ago that shift turned into a bad downward spiral of comments. and looks like she fully left afterwards.
did i miss… the ragnarok?? o_o
are we good now or….????
you missed it everything ok now
You know what, I’m staying out of the argument, my opinion, both parties are guilty.
the arguments been long over.
I was gonna give my two cents on it, but it wasn’t worth it, so I edited my comment.
There was an argument? O_o
I can be very stupid
The maxim thing
Well now. What did I come back to? Too much to read. But anywho, Artista’s Thing is almost a Thing now! Only a few more pages left for me to make and it’ll be posted in here and on DA. c: For those who don’t know what her Thing is, here’s the screenshot.
In the starting story really happend anyway so i’ll just
This makes me pleased.
P.S. My gender has become an enigma. Ahh, the broadness of Italian nouns!
What in the world did you guys do?? “MAXIM” (i use that name very loosely) gone rogue jessi blow all i theory’s out of the water and some one may have gotton blocked wow miss a few days miss a lot
I know, right?
well max leaving was the only thing interesting ro notable to happen in the comments for a while , but its over now so back to work.
Well dam hope it wasnt the maxim we are used to having around long time ago
unfortunately it was, however she had a recent change in demeanor and just doesint really seem the same anymore.
Jera in the first panel looks like she has a dick xDDDd
Creepiest shit I’ve seen on here. Maybe even more creepy than the Smiley Dog.
Gotta love cheesy 80’s movies.
One misplaced hoof and everyone loses their minds! XD Also, Gebo is majestic af!!
One clump of fur gone awry, and everyone loses their minds! X”D Also, can we just take a moment to admire Gebo’s majestic beauty?
I wander if that light surrpunding could represent his innocence. I’m reading waay to much into this.
There is never enough analysis to be done.
The colors look like Donald Trump?? help
I think this looks v nice, actually. I mean, I don’t really look at pictures of Donald Trump? So idk. but I think it’s nice. :v
Here ya go.
Y u always post gud stuff
Cuz I’m gud lik dat.
B, 2 gud.
I dub this “Super Saiyan American Patriotism. “
This is what happens when your patriotism is over 9000. XD
….Now let’s play a game called Guess My Gender. 😉
How do you know I’m male?
thats not really patriotism, thats just craziness from people i the middle of nowhere with nothing better to do than go out sasquatching.
Pretty much like the Scottish Presbyterians when Cromwell and the Parliament executed King James.
Such a majestic creature…
A truly rare and majestic creature indeed. He’s kinda like a Sasquatch. He may or may not be real, wandering around out there in the world somewhere, leaving behind red hats and signed books. Is he real? Is he a hoax? We will probably never know the truth…..Although your crazy uncle Jim-Bob will swear to the day he dies that he saw him and he’s real……
Hmmm… needs more corn silk.
It kinda does. Just the color shapes. Needs more wrinkles to be Donald Trump, and a megaphone to scream in.
His mouth is the megaphone.
okay so it’s 4 in the morning, I’m disoriented and lost and I think those words mean the same thing but whatever.
I see something happened waay down below but I’m in a mood so I won’t poke it, but the page looks awesome! I have to admit, I will miss the “deal with it” elk in the old page, but hot dangarang this page looks nice. I especially love the clouds in the background. <3 and Gebo looks so majestic. 😮
First panel really good where their shadow are way to realistic.
I agree. The expressions are magnificent. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/a28b9f49560fab35f873242bf2810db688c50622a7d7617e5dc944f5ce119c35.jpg
Very emotionally ravaging.
Happy birthday. 🙂
happy birth day
Happy belated moment of the Day you came out of your Mother’s womb. My sincerest congradulations.
I can’t wait till the next volume comes out. I absolutely love this comic. 🙂
GUYS GUYS GUYS GUESS WHAT
JERA HAS A PEENIIIIIIIIS
A PEENY NEENY NEENISSSS
PEEE NEEE NEEE
JERA HAS A PEENY WEENY NEENY MEENIS
SHE HAS A
They’re called sheaths, for dogs’ sake!
would anyone like to speculate how the story goes since it’s clearly gonna be a long (very, very long) time until we get to volume 2?
I’ll start. I feel like the authors won’t pull a Chekhov’s Gun* and Iki/Skoll will eventually be transported into a human vessel to help maintain mankind, but it doesn’t go as planned because of what we know of Skoll as a character, and how he wants this hopeless world to die already (also because the dragons themselves realize there is something up with Skoll; letting the hunters take him down so easily).
We dunno anything about the black human spirit, and what kind of differences Embla had with Hati, and how her/his relationship with Askr were, or how would Embla even feel about Skoll after what happened to Askr thanks to him.
Raigho and co may know where to go, but what then? the dragons (in human disguise) are waiting, along with, well, humans. And if against all odds they find Iki/Skoll, what would happen if he was already in human vessel? would he be self-aware? would he BE “Askr”? would his mind be more fucked as Skoll/Askr/Iki? would he forsaken the wolves or not recognize them or? also WHO WOULD BE THE VESSEL in the first place?????
Also, idk about you, but Raigho always strikes me as the “true” main character in this, not Iki. We could say he is “half-divine” now, so to speak, lol. Would he decide he may try and “chase the sun” and pick up on Skoll’s slack if all hope with Skoll is lost?
One last thing. Going by page 1, i feel like the story ends with Hati, only because it looks like he is the narrator in that page (i mean, who else would it be???)
Would love to hear your thoughts until next page is up : P
thanks for reading.
*It’s a trope in which the story presents you a VERY IMPORTANT PIECE OF ITEM OR INFORMATION early on, foreshadowing events, only for the story to end without ever doing anything about that piece of information
iam mainly suspicious that its going to end like wolfs reign. with everybody dieing, things falling apart. and all around depressing.
even hati in the prologue stated this was the end.
yeah i feel this would be the case too, going by the prologue.
UNLESS we find out Hati was speaking to a specific character, and the story carries on a bit more from that point in the prologue.
OR, this is not Hati? maybe it’s Raigho?
Wolf’s Rain… why you open old wounds, lol. To this day i don’t quite understand how the ending was part of the OP song all along. such a let down =_=
i was dissapointed in the ending too. i just cant seem to enjoy it anymore ,each time ive tried to rewatch i cant get passed ep 1 or 2.
I agree with the theory that Raigho is the main character.
right? i even remember back when we had the “characters” page
Raigho was the first of the wolf characters to appear on the list, followed by Iki.
Actually, it feels like Skoll would be one of two Big Bad Villains (the other being the dragons)
I’ve been considering Skoll being a possible villain. His desire to see the world burn is a classic evil motive, but his reasons for it are a bit different. To Skoll, the balance has been lost a long time ago, before the war between the humans and dragons. During his conversation with Hati, he notes that other species have died as well, which from Hati’s exposition in the prologue, leads us to infer that some of the world’s aspects have already been lost. With all this in mind, I think Skoll’s position is understandable-if not warranted-because of the fractures in reality already.
Hati, however, is more concerned about divine duty. Hati didn’t get involved with the Human and Dragon Conflict. While Skoll approached the situation from a sense of loyalty to their brother species, Hati ignored the conflict. He didn’t even attempt to get with other Spirits to create some form treaty or truce. To Hati, whether or not his brother species survives-which holds the balance between God and Evil-is of no concern next to his eternal job of herding the moon.
I see Skoll as something of an Anti-Hero. Skoll initially had good intentions when he went alone to defend the human race out of loyalty where everyone else ignored or didn’t get involved. It is not an evil act. Most likely, Skoll is in very deep pain losing his eternal companion, Askr, to the dragons, resulting in horrific ramifications on the human race. Skoll is possible in a depression, and after everything he’s sacrificed to save his brother species, it backfired, so he’s given up.
skoll is like every young nieave politician when they first get into politics thinking they can change the game, bit in the end the game changes them.
Maybe this is why some people think politicians should have some military experience as a foundation. Gotta admit, history shows that politicians that served in the military for a while generally do well. I don’t know how to classify Bush Jr. though. He did okay?
Service Guarantees Citizenship.
I’m not sure about too much, but we know that Hati is leaving his area, so weather will get even worse, maybe humans will be thrown into even greater panic (that city at the end looks fairly calm, not apocalyptic). I suspect (based on the sequence before Skoll and Hati in dreamland) that Fehu is going to rebel and maybe split the pack apart? There would at least be some major shift in the pack’s dynamics. I kind of hope for what reddog said about a Wolf’s Rain style ending. Sad, yes, but good and fitting to the prologue. Another thing supporting this is that the Norse myths are actually not all that happy. The gods in the legends know that their reign will not last forever, and one day they too will die, simply as it is how things must go. (However, they also know that a new age with new life will follow… It’s a cycle. So maybe Off-White world will end, but be reborn again?)
Great question Vienix! It’s cool to read other people’s thoughts on this!
hati did state that by leaving the stones he will not be able to work the sun, even being sad that the sunset they saw may be the last.
so from that point on, the sun mite stop appearing.
Sounds a lot like the Poles. :s
I believe you have a mixup. Chekov’s Gun is a plot device, sometimes presumed to be insignificant, that is included in the story, but later on turns out to actually be important. What you said on the bottom is a Red Herring.
The very example being; “A rifle hangs in the living room.” Well, if you mentioned there being a gun at all, it must be important somehow. Otherwise, why bother having it mentioned? If it’s not essential, don’t include it in the story.
oh i see. thanks for correcting me ^^
Here’s some good music for your listening pleasure while we wait for the next page:
Hey guys, speaking of random sex changes, here’s a fun thought!
It’s already alluded to with Embla and Askr in the final pages of this first volume, so we might as well talk about their wolf buddies.
Hati and Skoll were the only two wolves around at one point.
Which means at one point they had to…
thats also based on if they even did the deed and didint sprout from tree seeds or bits of fallen star like in some mythologys.
That’s a nicer thought, lol
So… At some point in the past Fleshcreature’s art might’ve been canon/legit?
If Skoll had a theme, it’d probably be this. Get you tissues, folks! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9FxjMdxTwag
I wonder if they’re going to remove Jera’s little tuft of belly fur. It might confuse some readers, especially since a lot of other canine comics (Asmundr, Wurr, ect.) draw the sheath on males.
I don’t see why they would be confused… They know she’s a girl. XD
Maybe We the ones know Jera much, but the new fans will react……..
I mean, if they react badly to something as miniscule as that I really hope they never see a real wolf.
Just because other comics do something doesn’t make it canon in this one simply because Jera happens to be the same species. It’d be more confusing (and work, longer to put out pages) to remove a piece of a character’s design halfway through the story than to have readers actually read the comic from the first chapter and pay attention while doingso, know what I mean?
*design and/or anatomy
Yep, people tend to care of the image than the Knowledge of the story.
I know how frustrating it can be when fans get all nitpicky over comics they aren’t drawing, themselves. But in this case, “Huh” has a good point. Whether or not other comics include the sheathe, Jera’s belly tuft, as Jessi put it, didn’t translate well on a smaller scale. It looks like a sheathe. It’s in the right place for a sheathe, and it’s hard not to notice especially on a character we know to be female. Removing such a small feature on this page alone actually wouldn’t be as difficult as you may think, and the belly tuft isn’t actually a design trait of Jera’s. It was just wolf floof that that shrinked wrong when the image was sized down.
I mean, I’d understand completely if Tankressi opted to leave the page alone. But I can see the benefits of editing it too.
Now I wonder how endowed Iki, Fehu, and Raigho are. Probably bigger than lemming-sized Gebo.
*gasp* Now I know why Iki is so obsessed with lemmings.
I attempted to draw Skoll (just pretend I put the special “O” there) in some odd kinda style and I may have gotten bored half-way through bc attention span bUT look
OK LETS TAKE A MOMENT TO LOOK AT THIS CLOUDS OK.
L O O K.
I am loving these new panels. It’s nice to see the pack look more competent and capable.
This one is also not showing up in the archive. Seems to be a running issue with new pages for some reason.
Whew :*) becoming a Dj is really way harder than i thought.
Also is there any suggestion of a story which a character appearance is a Monster being (70% Beast shape and 30% Human shape) but a Main protagonist?
I know people are wondering why the authors drew a wolf ‘sheath’ on Jera even though she’s female,
but that’s not a ‘sheath’. Its the hoof of the animal they’re chasing.
It’s just belly fur 😉
its belly fur that didint shrink well. jessie confirmed it below.
Do you guys think Sköll could have a change of heart in the future books? He seems so deadset on the way he’s given up now. Nobody can replace him. Do you think it would be possible to get Askr back or something? And how do you think a species actually goes extinct? (Since they can be reincarnated, is it if a spirit kills another spirit, or if every member of the species dies, or…?)
I think that Askr’s still alive because people haven’t died out completely yet. Sure Askr was eaten, but eaten alive. Askr could just be stuck inside of the dragons’ souls (since the two are merged (?)) being suppressed. And, the reason there’s no kids is probably just because Askr isn’t doing their assigned role/task in the universe. Just my theory on it.
So basically, I don’t think Askr can be replaced by another spirit because there is nothing to replace since Askr is still technically around. Sköll will probably remain the way he is until either Askr is no longer being suppressed by the dragons or until (if) he learns that there’s a way to help Askr out of their sticky situation.
Just my theory on it. ¯_(ツ)_/¯
That is an interesting theory. Never thought about Askr still being alive in the belly. XD (there’s a joke in 物の怪姫 about someone been alive and not “partying in the wolf’s belly”)
….. Does this mean that Askr is slowly being digested? O.o
No vore plz, dragons
xD I have no clue what 物の怪姫 means
Lol silly me my bad!
It’s “Mononoke Hime” or (hard to translate) kinda like princess of spirits. (It’s not a literal princess: it’s an insult the people use for her because even though she looks human, she may as well not be as she lives among the forest gods and allies with them against the people)
Is this a show or comic or something? It seems interesting lol
Japanese animated movie by Hayao Miyazaki, who is the founder of Studio Ghibli.
This is one of the darker ones he made.
In English it’s Princess Mononoke.
Yeah, but I don’t like saying it out loud. XP
(What peeves me is that it’s 1)not like a real princess and 2)mononoke isn’t a name. In English it just sounds… incorrect. Ah, translations…)
Tak, as an amateur linguist, I totally understand.
Just a question, do wolves really go for the legs during a hunt? One
would think there are better places to bite on to. It seems a bit unrealistic to me.
The hunting in this comic is very unrealistic. Wolves in real life usually bite the rump, sides, nose, or other soft skin to draw blood and exhaust the prey until it falls down. Though it’s uncommon, some even bite off tails of bison-some in Yellowstone are seen tailless.
jera still has that “sheath,” haha
