#69 1/2: One of those Interlude Things

This Comic's Storylines:

This Comic's Cast:

First off, I dunno why I did a half comic. I wasn't stalling for time, and I didn't have anything particular I needed to do. I just felt like it...
The idea for the comic itself (the rivalry between Death and Shaft) comes from a fanfiction a while back. I hate fanfic for the most part. It always is too... well, fanish. I like ripping into things and fun and stupidity, and most fans are too uptight to do that.
Anyway, the fanfic, Castlevania 1970: the Disco of Evil... which was improv, actually, had a big rivalry tween the Shaftmaster and Death. I liked it, I swiped it. I may eventually turn it into a plotline, but for now, it's basically just this comic. One of the few stand-alone comics that really doesn't connect to anything else... Well, except in the long run, where Shaft has a big power trip.
He does seem to be trippin' now. He's easy to write in the "drunk with power" mind-frame.

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.
