So! Spooky is down to his last two vines. AND The Platinum Priestess is free. And cranky. What is he going to do now? What can he do?

Tune in this Saturday to find out! Hope to see you there! :smiley:!

Where’s Laser Bear™ when you need him?

Indeed. Vacuum sucks! Lol. sorry. Spooks will triumph! A 13 year old that survived hell? Admittedly with help, but, space and the priestess are no challenge for our intrepid hero. Hope I wrote that correctly. He is playing her for the big “bang”!

So, Alex, selling an adult coloring book anytime soon? Just a thought.

Nooooooo!
Talk about bad luck D:
Where is Paul when we need him x’D
Then again this IS Spooky, he must have something up his sleeve, right? RIGHT?

I wonder if the multitude of things falling out of his coat will set free Fluffy’s compatriots from laser bears to grasping kudzu or other unexpected critters to surprise PP. Maybe a giant pterodactyl to fly him back to earth and give PP something to dodge. Or a T-Rex or Triceratops to send her on her way. If you’re going to go all out, might as well go over the top! :crazy_face:

Potentially the last problem Spooky will ever have.

Someday I will tell the story of what ultimately happened to the Laser Bear.

Fingers crossed!

No plans right now. But if there is interest anything is possible.

He had the vines trick. After that, though…

I like how you’re thinking about this. And all those options are very Spooky. :slight_smile:

I can imagine what Saturday’s comic will look like.

First panel: Close-up on Sircea’s perfect and completely uninjured face, smiling evilly.
Second panel: Sircea blows Spooky a farewell kiss.
Third panel: Sircea says “Toodles”.
Fourth panel: Close-up on Sircea’s staff’s blade slicing through Spooky’s last two tether lines.
Fifth panel: Wide view of their part of the forest, Sircea standing triumphant, and nothing in the sky but a >blip< to show the portal to Jupiter is closed. Spooky Jones is gone.

Like, I don’t want Spooky to die, and I’m still sure he’ll somehow return alive someday, but right now, I think the Priestess has won this round. Sorry, Spooks. We’ll miss you. Send us a postcard if you get a chance.

I hated to give you a “like”. However, that was impressive (shudder).

We know Spooks is badass. He was thirteen (13!) in hell. Lived to tell about it and become a nationally known superhero with proven skills. Now. Sircea? “eek”. Centuries of proven skills, did not just recently (?) have a demon messing with her brain, (she is a demon, right?) and has shown some massive acrobatic skills to boot! Where does that leave Spooks? Somewhat like a newborn babe battling a grizzly bear? Alex? He better kick ass or you may have a slavering wolfpack to deal with! He is Spooks! He has shown an impressive trick or two like saving many souls by taking them on himself. Nor ordinary mortal is he!

Sometimes the bad guys win. I like your speculation. It could very much go down like that.

Right now, he needs all the support he can get!

I agree. David has a good sense for how it could go.

The Platinum Priestess is not a demon. The Department of Extraordinary Security doesn’t know what she is now, but she was born human.

If anyone would have a chance against her, one on one, it would be Spooky.

But she has yet to be defeated one-on-one. Ever.
