Episode 253 - The Apocalyptic Battle, chapters 11-12

Episode 253: The Apocalyptic Battle, chapters 11-12

So angry, his eyes regenerated and exploded again!

Tom Dyron, the Ultimate Angel of Something, has been defeated. Now the fate of all creation lies on the shoulders of it's greatest champion, Steven. Can he alone defeat Xeruel the angel of dark darkness where others have failed? Of course not. He gets punked out in half a chapter. And what did you expect, really? It's Steven. Falling down and being an arse is what he does. However, since there's still another seventy-three odd chapters to go, clearly we need someone else to grunt and thrust at Xeruel some more. Who will it be? The answer to this question, dear reader, won't shock you at all.

Episode 252 - Wings of Gibraltar, Issue 2

Episode 252: Wings of Gibraltar, Issue 2

Only Wings of Gibraltar would dare to present a story about lasers blowing things up.

Despite the best efforts of all involved, the plot finally arrives at the top secret space lab in space of Gibraltar. No amount of block exposition can hold back the forces of Major Generic Bad Guy and his armies of faceless hordes, so it's up to our designated protagonists to save the day. Fortunately, they're armed with the powers of Science and the fact that you know they're going to live anyway, which would ruin the suspense if there was any to begin with. Add in a robot arm (Whose purpose will shock you) and a clumsily shoe-horned anti-war message and you have the sequential art-like substance that is Wings of Gibraltar! Two!

Episode 251 - Girl on Fire, chapters 9-10

Episode 251: Girl on Fire, chapters 9-10

"These people aren't ordinary," said the evil sorcerer to the demigod from ancient Egypt and the guy with a nuclear skull for a head..

Girl on Fire takes it up a notch as the plot arrives! That's right, it's only eight chapters in and we finally find out where the Injustice League (remember them?) are hiding, and what they've come to Moose Tailings, Alaska for. And for the terminally hard of thinking, it happens to be the only thing that matters in this fic - Jake's Bar and Grill. I mean Stephanie, the titular Girl on Fire, Robin's beloved, amazing fighter, tragic waif who can take a hit from a gorilla without flinching but tears up the very moment the existence of mothers is even hinted at. Fortunately, the Justice League is here to stand around and do nothing (again) while Robin and Phoenix fight off the villains (again). It's everything you've come to love about Girl on Fire, just with less doors and more inappropriately dressed teenagers.
