This began as an ABR backstory comic, but I've decided it is its own entity. The Bright here is so different to ABR Bright that I think this would serve well as a standalone comic rather than a backstory. All things in this comic have something to do with either Bright or something he caused that affected others (hence echoes). I will update this when I can, but I do have multiple things I do with this space.

Firstly, I do the comics, which are linked below.

Secondly, I will do "Ask a Character!" strips when I am too lazy to make a proper comic, but have the time to fool around. Ask anything to anyone featured in the comic, and I will make their reaction to the question (It might not be answered due to character or story reasons, but that adds to the gag).

Ask a Character!
1. Ask a Character! - Silke (http://img266.imageshack.us/img266/5546/aacs1.png)
2. Ask A Character! - Arkan, Lord of the Dead (http://img194.imageshack.us/img194/7499/aacar1.png)
3. Ask A Character! - The changeling, Arkan Lord of the Dead, and That Dead Guy (http://img697.imageshack.us/img697/6205/aacazararkandeadguy.png)
4. Ask the Entire Cast! (http://img251.imageshack.us/img251/8128/asktheentirecast.png)
5. Ask a Character! - Will Anathema go out with you? (http://img684.imageshack.us/img684/263/aacanathemagoout.png)

If anyone really wants to spoil the entire plot for themselves, I can explain exactly why Arkan being an apparent God does not interfere with Avbaroy Theology. :smallsmile: So basically, just trust me, it may take most of the comic I have planned, but it'll be explained.

Thats no moon!Its the death star3 only this time more evil looking!

Theres only one way to destroy a inn and thats with fire. Undead fire zombies undead fire vampires no wait undead fire gaint wizards zombies that can cast fireball along with greater fireball at will and blow up when they die, that should do it.the power of being a necromancer can be fun. fear me for i am a necromancer . I have power over death its self. all hail the art of necromancy and the all hail the nameless death Goddess from who has given us this gift.I play far to many games with undead in them i think.Yes i barrow the idea of a death goddess from disciples 2.witch i can never remember the name.


About the comic:This is one of the fastest updating comics i have seen to date.Well so far this comic after reading a page makes me want to see more just to see what happen or in other words this comic is goodgreat keep up the good work.

Schedule Update!

As of tonight through to Saturday, I will probably not be able to get anything done. This will be a skip week unless I can manage a comic or two in the mornings. I will be doing a Drama Production at my school from Monday through to Saturday (Yes, Saturday) which runs until 9:00pm my time, and I won't likely get back to my house before 10, when I go to sleep on most days. Just thought you all should know.

Keep sending in requests for AaC! and fanarts if you can!

it could be that or the sun is brainwashing them to forget all about this rope.Along with the fact they are very close to each other.The sun has very strong brainwashing powers.

Anathema* believes that all of her kind (the red fellows with horns) are responsible for various sins, and death is the only way those sins can be absolved. The blue chick is not of her kind, so is supposedly not guilty of those same sins.

*Meaningful Name (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/MeaningfulName) here, Anathema means "cursed one", originating from the Greek term, which meant "something dedicated (to a god)".

There's a difference between Godchild, Child of a god, and child god. It gets confusing. Especially in a comic where there are actual gods.

Poor guards. Always getting their heads exploded. :smallfrown:

And I think what Memmarch means is that fists in OOTS style--if DLB is supposed to be punching the guards or just touching them, not sure--are generally little circles with three lines in them, and DLB's hands are just normal. Not sure, though.

Although Bright does seem a little too badass. It looks a little out of character.

*Cough* :smallsmile:


This began as an ABR backstory comic, but I've decided it is its own entity. The Bright here is so different to ABR Bright that I think this would serve well as a standalone comic rather than a backstory. All things in this comic have something to do with either Bright or something he caused that affected others (hence echoes). I will update this when I can, but I do have multiple things I will do with this space.

1st char; I like it, he looks less childlike.
2nd char; side-grade to the new art style. (neither up or down)
3rd char; I liked the older version a lot better. (have a name yet?)
4th char; A good upgrade (more shiny things!)
5th char; I think I prefer the old version, but only just.

2nd char; a good upgrade.

I don't really understand the preference to the old ones you had in some cases, as those ones were hardly different at all compared to the old ones.

memnarch
2010-01-23, 01:57 AM
Alright, I'll try to explain my thoughts then.

3rd char; I prefer the less detailed design; more simplistic to have more of the character shown. (the x-ing is much more noticeable on the shirt here)
4th char; in contrast here, she started with more details and it seems (to me) that they they were just changed around to different types.
5th; something about the hips on the new one seems off.

Well the neck thing is strange, at least for some characters like the horned women who kills all the people, but all in all it looks great, as already mentioned, less child-like, and leaves more room for accessories because of the body length:smallwink:

It's great! :biggrin:

But what I don't get is this:....is the green one male or female?

It looks like leather armor to me... and that's what the archers often wear.

Darklord Bright

I'd say male, due to both templates having the male bodytype. :smallconfused:

Actually, usually it wasn't more than a leather jerkin or maybe chainmail if you were lucky. :smallwink:

Four reasons: One, he's referred to as Tally-kins so often by his girlfriend whose name also escapes me it's hard to remember

Two, 'The Fallen' was kinda a big point in the story, or at least was presented as one.

Three, I am HORRIBLE with names.

Four, i stopped reading for a while, then continued reading at the point where they mention the fallen.
