It's amazing to look at some of these comics, as compared to DSWC proper, and realize just how much longer they are. I get practically novel-length in comparison to the svelte nature of the original series.

I guess that's good, though. DSWC was so minimalistic at times partly because it was the "e;secondary comic -- the unloved step-child of CVRPG. Villains, though, gets to feel like a fully fleshed out comic and live a good, true life.

To note in this comic I spent HOURS working on that damn scythe to get it to a point where I was happy with it. Still have it saved, under the title of Mega Betsy. Amusingly, after all that time making it, I really can't think of a single instance where I'd need to use it again. Ah well.

I also notice that I had Shaft, in the last panel, doing his talking to the screen pose, but it ends up looking like he's cringing away from Mega Betsy.
 
    

When evil spreads across the land, and darkness rises and the monsters roam. When the creatures of the night make beautiful music, and the things that go bump in the night go bump with greater enthusiasm. When the world is in peril and is in need of a hero...

These guys are, sadly, the best the world can hope for. These are the adventures of the heroes of CVRPG. They mean well, they try hard, and occasionally they do the impossible...

They actually do something heroic.
