    Minnie isn’t someone to be sorry for. Truthfully, like her mother, she is a bit a [email protected], and no matter what between her and Jr., she still doesn’t have a right to be a psychopath. Actually, comparing her and Jr., as most of the people feel he is pathetic, he does have somewhat more of a rational and understanding personality than Minnie. As funny as some panels may be, I don’t feel bad for her. Someone, I hopefully mean Jr., smacks her to her senses, or least show she isn’t all high mighty. Not kiss her back, because that’s just disgusting. If not, well, there goes any respect I have left for this comic.

      Honestly I don’t agree with all of this, mostly because Minnie had a whole load of responsibilities and horrible things happen to her at such a young age. While she is being really temperamental, if you think about the the fact that most of her actions are based on her desire for Junior’s attention it makes sense. I mean unlike Junior she won’t age, or mature, due to her losing her original body and becoming a ragdoll. Their parents are constantly busy with their work controlling the underworld and after losing so much Junior is the only true friend Minnie has. While I will admit she is currently being very childish and not caring for Junior’s feelings or rights as a person. Minnie doesn’t exactly deserve pity but at least a certain level of understanding and a stern talking to. Hopefully Junior can give this to her before things gets worse.

    I kinda feel bad for junior, but it’s hilarious, Minnie is just so frustrated with junior.

    junior is a character who doesn’t even seem to notice that subtext exists, actually it’s quite common, a lot of people act this way, but man is it getting him in trouble. Mennie is the opposite , she says what she wants through subtext,

    like the muffin scene, man that was bad, it​ boils down to her seeing that she wasn’t the first thing on juniors mind, telling him that she hates Mimi and the muffins that were made for Mimi, and telling him that he was frustrating her with his lack of awareness.

    Another thing to note is while she is frustrated, and probably very angry, mennie is showing major restraint, she isn’t actively hunting Mimi, and only activated the traps to get juniors mind set on her. Do you really expect that those few traps were all the castle could throw out? Mandy rigged this place, mennie is just not set on killing anyone, yet at least. The last line on this page also says a lot, she’s really trying to bust into juniors head now that she hates Mimi and wants attention.

    I will also note that junior only started spending time with mennie after Halloween town, at least three days past, if not a few more, I can hardly see Him being lenient enough to wait on punishment, and junior’s already got his mind somewhere else with someone else, with ten or less years being hated by junior, depending on when she actually came into the development of her powers, it’s no surprise 3+ days of attention were less than she wanted

    I love that she went with the charlie brown route, it’s a semi- subtle way of saying that he’s being a blockhead and that she wants him to listen.

    As far as the nergal powers view on mennie, I could see her treating it like trash, not because she’s evil, but more towards it was the major reason junior hated her in the first place, i could definitely see her taking her frustration out on it.

    Junior has good intentions, but he just doesn’t realize he’s kinda being a jerk, from outright hating his sister because she exists to ignoring her to take care of Mimi.

    One last thing is that Mandy actually seems to be helping these two, from telling mennie that junior won’t notice anything unless she takes action, to telling junior that he needs to look out for his sister.

    Well that’s just my thoughts, I’ve read through this series about 3 times now, and the third time I read the comments along with the pages, being hilarious , pointing out things I missed, or just pointing out likes and dislikes of the series, thanks for commenting, seeing other people’s views made my day

    Sorry if I bothered anyone

        Its funny you talk about how grim jr is stupidly naive yet his sister and evidently most people reading dont seem to remember or notice the reason he hated her wasn’t because shes existed. The reason he hated her was that she had everything he never did and never will.

      Minnie mistreating her Nergaling because she thought Junior hated her for having powers is actually a very interesting idea. But if I recall correctly he didn’t know she had powers until she saved him from Oogie Boogie (though I could be wrong). He disliked her because she was incredibly more talented and gifted than him at everything and thus she got a lot more attention from everyone. This, along with her having powers and saving him while he was helpless, was the straw that broke the camel’s back, so to speak, and why he finally lashed out at her before she was killed.

      But again, it is an interesting idea. I’ve always just figured that Minnie mistreated the Nergaling because she never considered it a separate being from herself and more just something that was a part of her, thus why shouldn’t it obey her? It literally is her. Or maybe that’s just what her species is supposed to do. From her father to her grandfather. If they don’t control their Nergaling and show it who’s dominant then it will control them.

      Final note, I do believe that while Junior doesn’t realize how he’s pushing Minnie off to take care of Mimi, he definitely feels horrible about how he treated her before she died, as we’ve seen when he talked to Nergal himself.

    I am hopping Billy gets involve into this mess with a different identity and is super smart like calculate every single thing and know everything that is going on smart that would be interesting and would be fun to read also he would have no emotions or does not show any so know one knows is him and help out junior and everyone else as part of a big plan got that idea while thinking about this comic.

      04/20/2017 at 8:18pm

      I think Billy might technically be still alive since I think they mentioned him finding a way to come back to life or somewhere else than heaven, or heck, (maybe hell) due to the comment showing him being thrown out of any after life he went to.

    I’ve always wondered how come Jr.’s Nergal powers is a separate sentient being. Shouldn’t it be just the abilities Minnie inherited from her father and passed along with her eye to Jr.? Or did those powers become an actual entity after being passed on? Something that Jr. had to “tame” and make his own. It seems that at first he could communicate with his grandfather Nergal through them, but later it changed into the powers being a different creature. It’s a bit confusing. I don’t mind the powers being sentient, but it’s kind of hard to imagine having to live with someone else in your head, who resists, argues, disobeys, has it’s own opinions and needs to be constantly cajoled into cooperation. That’s tiring.

    • Drakesplash

      04/20/2017 at 8:13pm

      Nergal has always been a separate entity when it comes to the powers. The only difference being that jr. and nergal have become best friends and unlike Minnie, Jr. gives Nergal freedom of speech/thought in their relationship. Nergal has stated multiple times in previous chapters that Minnie treated him in the cruelest way possible when they were connected. That’s why he went on a rampage after being freed from her in the first part of the story. He was honestly going crazy at the prospects of freedom from his tyrannical captor. Since Minnie was 3/4s human, and 1/4s Nergal her Nergal side which did not mix well with her human side probably developed its own conscious in order to prevent being repressed. This might be true or Nergal Sr. might’ve been the one to give her Nergal powers to her due to the fact she was more human than Nergal. This would also explain why he could communicate with them through it.

        04/21/2017 at 2:50pm

        I’m sorry, but I’ve never seen Minnie actually abuse her nergal powers. She only used them in combat, and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. All of this nergal abuse bullcrap stems mainly from the retcon Bleed and NEK pulled off because they were too lazy to actually continue writing a good character and thus ended up destroying her through their complete and utter incompetence as consistent and professional comic creators.

        • Drakesplash

          04/22/2017 at 9:21pm

          Well in truth she never once abused her powers she just treated the Nergal that was bonded to her through the powers like crap. Nergal never got to say anything or do anything in the time he was bonded with Minnie. It was probably really annoying for Minnie to have a being that could listen to all her personal thoughts constantly whine at her. I will agree though that Minnie’s character deteriorated in a negative way a lot over time. The only way i think her character could be slightly saved is if her change/actions were due to the frustration of not having her feeling returned or being mistreated by Junior and not anything else.

    I went back a little of this comic, and wow, due to how long it took to get here, I thought days had passed, but it’s only been like a few hours or something. But even then, I just want Minnie to just lay down what is wrong, throw Jr.’s ungrateful ass to the side, and actually see her in a scene where it’s not about Jr, and instead she’s spending quality time with friends (Does she have anyone at all?), or Helga. I really want to see those two interact!

    OR MAYBE NERGAL JR???!!!!!!!!!

    LIKE WHERE THE FUCK IS HER DADDY?!

    • Drakesplash

      04/20/2017 at 8:15pm

      Her father is constantly fighting for Mandy and is given various missions from her. As for friends I think that other than the people who praise her just for her talents Minnie’s only friend is Junior. :/

  • 04/18/2017 at 10:45pm

    When asked a question like that by someone like Minnie it’s best to just give simple, short answers like “she’s okay” or “doing fine”. And probably don’t go saying “her name is Mimi. Don’t call her a whore”. That will provoke Minnie.

      To be fair, it may not mean EXACTLY what we think, given the archaic type of language Minnie uses. “Whore” has never been a nice word (as far as I know) but I think it may have meant something a little different way back when, the same way “slut” once meant one who was simply filthy or unkempt (for anyone who actually read Romeo and Juliet in high school, remember Mercutio’s line about “She (Queen Mab) bakes the elf-locks in foul, sluttish hairs.”

      She isn’t Grim’s daughter, but Nergal Junior’s. If she still had her Nergal powers, she would probably split Junior apart in a most gruesome manner. A bit like how she died herself originally.

  • Ruru

    04/18/2017 at 5:07am

    Minnie’s rage is clearly understandable, i mean. Minnie did everything in her power to make Jr notice her and love her as a sister BACK when she had restraint and was ‘being nice’ but Jr neglected her. Then Mimi came waltzing in like a motherfucking messiah, and got everything from Jr that Minnie didn’t have. His attention, his (maybe love), and his protection. I mean, he used to be a mama’s boy and now he went again her wishes just to protect Mimi. And Mimi didn’t even do anything, and we only see Mimi hurting Jr, while Minnie, she had to go through a lot just to get his attention. Heck she even died for him :/

    This feels like those romance something something =~=

Don’t you think that’s a bit…disrespectful towards Minnie, who only used her Nergal powers for what they were originally intended for, namely, to use them in combat when situations got actually dangerous? Junior is an ungrateful immature twat in comparison.

          To be fair, I think that the only disrespect shown by Jr. would be to the power itself and to be even more fair I think Minnie was a bit more disrespectful to her power than Jr. considering that Jr. actually treated it like the clearly sentient being it is instead of just a tool to be used at the whim of the wielder. Just saying.

      Funny how people complain about how grim jr is inconsiderate when minnie is so self centered and egotistical she demands his love and attention while never considering how he feels. Also the fact that she was either so oblivious she never noticed he was insecure about having nothing special about himself whatsoever in spite of being grims “son”, meanwhile shes constantly showing him up and does literally everything better than him. Or shes so callous that in spite of knowing she demands his affection while not thinking it necessary to tell him the reason why she has powers and he doesnt is because nergal jr is her father. That woul also maybe have helped grim jr. get over the fact that he felt everyone he cared about abandoned him for minnie.

            Also another tidbit. Its kind of depressing that the only person who actually cares about grim jr. in a non selfish way is mimi (hims daughter). And attempting to kill him is the least horrible thing anyone has tried to do to him in the whole story.

By throwing a tantrum since he has a thing for Mimi . I hate her even more for calling her an “amputated whore ” Mimi has suffered a Lot more than minnie. .-.
