NEK: Back to the lab again…and that one tavern again.

  • 08/17/2017 at 3:32am

    Recent rumblings do not bode well. Can’t ever have a perfectly good month, can we?

    • 08/17/2017 at 8:30am

      Apparently Fred, current caretaker of the Snafu IP, found it prudent to Ban Griddles from this website as well as the discord. Anyone (and everyone) who was enjoying conversations about the history and potential future of GT, will have to talk with some “other” former Bleedman staffed writer. A pity, really.

    It’s just like Jewel said. That poor Walker must be on edge, since Dan Phantom is up and about. Not to mention I bet all of the underworld must be aware of the tension between Mandy and Him.

    Hello lads and ladettes!
    First comment on this uh. Ultimate fusion of most childhoods I suppose?

    Honestly I’m just here to see these other warlords and how Mandy will threaten them and answer that question of whether Danny Phantom is Junior’s father.

    Nice to meet you all yet again by the way!

    Honestly speaking Grids with the short story you just gave us I WOULD HAVE and STILL WILL pay good money to see grimtales rebooted and go in the story direction you propose

    • Grids

      08/13/2017 at 3:25pm

      Thankyou very much, that means a lot!
      Ultimately this version of the council was designed to tie in with the events with Chi, who I believe I can more properly adapt, as well as the warring siblings. I would have all these events occur simultaneously and eventually tie in, because right now GT is fractured between the three and poorly pacing them.
      This version I proposed changes that.

        What would it take to get back your job as an editor in this comic? These ideas are more or less wasted in the comments.

        • Grids

          08/15/2017 at 5:04am

          Gotta get Bleed to accept that the comic needs more care and consideration than it’s currently afforded. That would be the biggest hurdle, as the reason I was removed initially was because we clashed over his impulses. He needs to enact a PPGD-style storyboard and editing system if he were to take me back onboard because Bleed’s impulsive ‘Captain Calls’ for the comic are frankly disastrous.

          Also there’s a person currently in the position I’d be assuming. He’d have to be gone entirely.

    Hearing this just brings up memories of watching teen titans and makes me want to cry because of what’s happened to it

    • Grids

      08/13/2017 at 2:37am

      A fitting parallel.

      • Sigment

        08/13/2017 at 4:23pm

        Is this about “Teen Titans Go!”? ‘Cause I’m not sure about that. That show’s actively TRYING to mock and parody the source material. GT is trying to honor it’s source and fails miserably. Not to mention retconning one of its main characters in a poor way.

        • Grids

          08/13/2017 at 4:47pm

          Do you mean Minnie’s speech, Mimi’s powers or Junior’s forgotten character development?

          • Kraid

            08/13/2017 at 9:44pm

            All of the above plus that bullshit with Minnie being secretly evil despite getting uplifted to Heaven way back then. Among other things.

          • Grids

            08/14/2017 at 12:04am

            It’s all a lie and the Nergal wants to drive a wedge between the two siblings for fear of having TWO masters let alone one.

            Calling it now.

    In reference to the above request, the Nine Circles was the planned culmination of the Council Grim and Mandy attends which everyone seems to be eager for.
    Mandy was going to be caught off guard when Him enacts the Nine Circles, an ancient traditional judiciary composed of nine self-nominated leaders or “Highlords” of the underworld. This event would be so significant that Heaven itself would send a rep to oversee any fallout.
    With this act alone Him intended to turn the tables on a seemingly super-confident Mandy and besiege her with the full might of the underworld’s greatest armies at his command.

    Would you like to know more?

      Like, don’t stop.

      • Grids

        08/13/2017 at 12:55am

        Haha so be it!
        We would slowly be introduced to the other Highlords, some we know. Him and Aku in his Ikra form are already present. Also appearing is Hinson Abadeer, whose involvement was hinted at back when he was seen with Him (my final scripts for the comic). His interests pale to his concern for his daughter, a young girl named Marceline stranded on Earth after the Final War.
        Then we meet Satan, who we first saw back in the early chapters chilling with Billy. This was Mandy’s first direct encounter with the lil guy and he’s something of a smooth talker. He does not appear outwardly hostile. At first this seems like simple fare.

        Then several more faces arrive and we meet them one by one. Walker Sr of the Ghost Zone. Malebolgia, still smarting from his minions being humiliated by Junior back in the first arc. And a personal sleight toward Grim, we meet the musically malicious Sartana of the Dead (from El Tigre) who relishes in her status as a rogue agent of death who raises an army of the deceased to do her bidding.
        Mandy is suddenly feeling rather outnumbered. Do I still have your interest?

          Indeed, you do!

            08/13/2017 at 1:58am

            Well, the last member of the Nine is where it gets interesting. Most of them are either sworn against the house of Mandy, pals of Him or otherwise able to benefit from the ravages of the underworld war. The last of these is no exception – it’s the Boogeyman, antagonist from the Afterbirth story I made with Bleed years ago. Naturally he has his gripes with Grim so of course Him would rally him to his cause.

            But as he arrives with his entourage as well as Skulker (also from AB), his peons begin to lurch and convulse, their skin turning red and a second pair of eyes appearing on their faces. They turn on Skulker and tear him to pieces and as Boogeyman tries to retreat through a corridor of the floating castle, an enormous crimson hand smashes through the stone bastion and hurls Boogeyman into the void.

            In the council chamber, a new Highlord steps forward as he shrinks to human size. He levels a finger at Him as his new minions flank him, white hair falling to his shoulders, his four golden eyes bristling with fury.

            08/13/2017 at 2:22am

            NO! OOOOOOOO! Does that mean Mandy would’ve had Raven’s father, Trigon, on her side for the “war?”

          • Grids

            08/13/2017 at 2:36am

            Trigon isn’t in it for anyone but himself, but he will make for damn certain that Him doesn’t get the easy numbers over Mandy if nothing else. He’s there to ruin a fellow demon’s day.

              how is malbogea a master when spawn made him his bitch in the first chapter? i would think he’d would have gotten a spot or something?

              08/16/2017 at 11:31pm

              can you explain how the nine rulers split 4 realms? trigon getting a hand in this sounds awesome. you mention After birth (and the twins are sorta confirmed) does that mean mandy already conquered that the mirror realm? i think his name was Drax (opposite counterpart of Dexter)?

    Ok well I was hoping to get a few ppg updates now before we got back to grim, also expected to conclude the fight between brothers and sister but here we are back with Chi. There are however two things I like here, first I’m actually curious about this HE they are referring to which I assume is evil Danny and second I just love that blue alien girl in the first panel. Anybody else think she should join the main cast ? Probably just me.

  • Sigment

    08/12/2017 at 12:40pm

    Guess it was too much to hope that “End of Chapter” meant a chance for other comics to have some more attention for a little while… Shouldn’t be surprised, really. Also, when did NEK go from GT’s shitty editor to shitty writer? I’m genuinely curious about this apparent promotion.

  • Shradow

    08/12/2017 at 12:11am

    This looks like the start of some meaningful exposition and story progression, hopefully it stays that way. Chi’s not so bad but for the most part very little happens when she’s around.

  • Potatrobot

    08/11/2017 at 10:12pm

    Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaand back to the table.

    • Grids

      08/12/2017 at 12:00am

      It’s a metaphor I think. The table is the comic. It’s rooted to the spot, unable to move and stuck in the same place for years while a couple of characters few people actually care about solely occupy it and make a giant mess all over it.

      • 08/12/2017 at 12:05am

        How long have we been here now? I want to say a year, but I’m not sure about that. We’ve been stationary, literally not moving for quite a while now. Doesn’t stop entire walls of dialogue from getting in our way, though.

      • Sigment

        08/12/2017 at 12:50pm

        All it needs to be complete is a fight in the background that people care more about that the what’s happening at the table itself.

  • Aros001

    08/11/2017 at 5:57pm

    While I am also upset that we’re not getting more with Grim and Mandy at the council or Junior and Minnie at the castle, this page at least seems to be a step in the right direction with Chi’s stuff. Notice the difference between this page and almost the majority of her pages since leaving Aku City? It actually feels like things are moving forward! That the story might actually be progressing instead of just coming to a complete halt!

    What did we get from this page? More information on Jewel’s backstory, information on where Chi’s going and why she can’t get there easily, and a pretty decent lead up to what I’m assuming to be Dan’s return to the comic, a character who’s been part of the cast since near the comic’s beginning and can actually tie Chi into the story (just wait, watch me be completely wrong).

    What did we get out of Chi’s previous few pages? She ordered some food, made goo-goo eyes at Jewel, had a cameo by Rook and Kevin who, in all likelihood, will not matter to the overall story, and basically just sat around in this bar doing nothing of importance. The best we got out of her last appearance was Eltros Walker and that only has any importance because he is connected to one of the Big Five Lords of the Underworld like Junior, Minnie, Mimi, and Chi are. Basically in that entire part of the comic, nothing really happened. Nothing moved forward. The comic just stopped to have a lunch break with a character that is not interesting enough to hold a scene like that.

    While there are still problems, at least this page is a lot better than what we’ve been getting by simply actually doing stuff. If this had been like some of the older pages, this entire page would have just be build up to revealing the joke that Chi ate a lot and nothing else.

    I Honestly think Bleed should spend more time on this comic than PPGD. It’s more exciting.

    • M.A.K.Dynasty

      08/11/2017 at 6:58pm

      I have to disagree with you on that one. Grim Tales has been getting too much underserved attention throughout the entire summer. Meanwhile, PPGD, the more liked and popular of the two is getting treated like second-rate garbage. It’s not fair that Grim Tales gets about one page a week while PPGD gets a page a month, if we’re lucky. Although, it is nice seeing Grim Tales getting better. If only it would stop taking all the attention.

      • Shadow Knight Destroyer

        08/13/2017 at 8:04am

        PPGD is somewhat boring to me since it’s flashbacks and large amounts of dialogue …..Grim Tales on the other hand is centered around many stories of the past as well as new interesting character such as Grim Jr and Minnie.

        • M.A.K.Dynasty

          08/13/2017 at 12:03pm

          Cant please everyone I suppose. Well, we will just have to see what happens next.

    I beg to fucking differ. Like, he doesn’t do jack shit, he doesn’t.

    Random cameo from the emoji aliens. Yay…? Cameo’s would be more effective in a better written comic.

    Also, we got to see pig slut bitch again! ….Whoops, I mean Jewel, my bad. I get the two confused sometimes. Hope your happy with yourself “Nooma”.

            08/12/2017 at 9:25am

            No, it has nothing to do with the Discord. There’s a whole lot of reasons why I hate you, but that conversation is not gonna happen here of all places. And besides, you’re also an annoying butt hole that needs to grow up as well, so pot calling the kettle black here.

        • Shadow Knight Destroyer

          08/12/2017 at 6:40am

          Calm the fuck down Ultradj, don’t know why you putting your hate on the readers. Why are you trying too start a fight with Numa430?

          • ULTRADJ

            08/12/2017 at 9:26am

            Not all readers, just certain ones. And with Numa, it has to do with a whole lot of behind the scenes stuff most people don’t know about.

    • Shadow Knight Destroyer

      08/12/2017 at 11:39am

      If that’s true then I have no business getting involved, just try too keep it down. This site is mainly too discuss about Bleedman’s latest work.

      • Sigment

        08/12/2017 at 4:27pm

        You make it sound like Bleedman’s comics are the only ones left on Snafu. There’s still The Crawling City, which, as weird as it is sometimes, is still more interesting than this to some. Kayos Gaiden also gets the rare occasional update.

        • Shadow Knight Destroyer

          08/13/2017 at 6:00am

          I like this story the most and PPG story is getting crazy with a lot of reading after reading. Somewhat losing interest in it unlike Grim Tales which I look forward too.

            08/13/2017 at 12:11am

            Gladly. I’ll do it down below. I’m happy that people still care about the original script ideas.

            It seems guy’s still have interest in my script work. For example that Panty and Stocking comic, which used to be here on Snafu and is now on that Tap site, is still using my scripts letter for letter!
            Even though they won’t credit me or pay me for my work, and even after I quit Otako studio a year and a half ago because of their inexcusable behaviour toward me and my wife. Weird right?
