The Young Protectors: Double-Cross Chapter One—Page 34

Original comic page at:

Just a fly in the ointment. The monkey in the wrench. The pain in the ass. Right, Priestess?

Welcome to our first, ever preview page! Woot!

You can comment (and see other readers’ comments!) on this page here on the Community site.

Only other $5+ members of the Woolfpack will be able to see those comments for now, but they will automatically show up under the webcomic when the page is officially made public. (So, of course, please restrict your comments and insights about this page to that Sneak Previews category on the Community site until the page is made public—you don’t want to spoil things for the other readers!)

I’ll also be posting up my specific thank yous to patrons in these notes on the actual update days themselves, so I have the most current info. But let me say right here and right now: THANK YOU SO MUCH!

If you’re able to read this page, then you’re the reason why I’ve been able to continue telling this story. I couldn’t do it without you. That’s why I think you and all the other patrons are the real superheroes of this comic.

I am very grateful to each and every one of you, and I really hope you enjoy this new benefit of being a member of the Woolfpack! 🙂

So! Spooky isn’t spaced… yet! But it looks like he’s hanging on by a thread (or vines or whatever…) Will those be enough to keep him safe? The Platinum Priestess seems pretty angry—do you think she might have another trick up her (now-tattered) sleeve? And even if she doesn’t, how is Spooky going to get out of this predicament?

Let me know your thoughts in the comments at the Young Protectors Community! And tune in on Tuesday night to find out what happens next!

Hope to see you there! 😀






Maybe Spooky could find a chewing gum company to sponsor him.


Spooky did take advantage of corporate sponsorship for a couple years, but in the end, he found there were too many strings attached. :slight_smile:


I see Spooky knows the “Thwipp” spell. :slight_smile:


Those ropes or vines things remind me of a slingshot I used to have when I was 7.
I remember MYTHBUSTERS testing human-sized slingshots reportedly used to fling people over the border in the Southwest USA. That MYTH failed as I recall. It’s the sudden stop of the landing that hurts…


Gravity sucks! Inertia and mass are constants. Yes?


Love the page Alex! We see that tho young comparatively, he is indeed battle hardened!!


In the real world - - I’m not so sure about the magic world and its multiple dimensions


Love the Die Hard reference. :star_struck:

Also loving how our artists have rendered PP in this iteration. She’s definitely changed since last we saw her - and that last version was pretty awesome! I like the modifications they made yet there is no question it is still her, in a newer and more terrifying mode.


Spooky is salt in PP’s sugar container. :blush:

While I’m very glad to see that Spooky has avoided a trip to Jupiter – somehow I never thought of creating anchor lines to the trees – he’s now in the perfect position for the Priestess’s other favourite trick: a force blast from her staff. Possibly she’s too mad right this second to think of doing something else, and possibly Spooky can create an ectoplasmic shield to block the blast. In which case, that round of combat is negated and the Priestess will definitely try something else.

Question: What will the Priestess’s new attack be if it’s not a force blast or a portal? Replace Spooky’s clothes with a tuxedo? She could do that.

Question: How will Spooky get back on the offensive from here? Does he have any potion bottles for this occasion?

On an unrelated note, what did Spooky do with the laser bear when he, uh, took care of it? Is it back in a bottle? Can Spooky put the Priestess into a bottle?


And I see the connection you’re making there. :slight_smile: Peter and Spooky would definitely get along well.

Ah, Mythbusters… One of my favorite shows of all time.

This certainly isn’t Spooky’s first rodeo, so you don’t want to count him out too quickly. Glad you like the page, William!

One of my favorite movies of all time…

I agree. I love how Adam is drawing her, and I’m really liking Vero’s colors, especially with The Platinum Priestess’s hair. :slight_smile:

And he would have it no other way. :slight_smile:

There’s a scary thought…

Ha! Yes, we already know that is within her skill set!

All very good questions. :slight_smile:
