    DEXTER RULES????????????????????????????????

  • 12/21/2016 at 7:39pm

    Okay. I am running out of comments to make. I’ve finally placed my Grim Tales AU, on Deviantart. I can’t say much about this page. I… Kind of… Felt like this was an obvious step. Knowing Mandy, both in the show, and in this comic series, I felt a page like this was coming. Even if I didn’t want to see it, I knew it was coming. I never enjoyed Dan. Not in Grim Tales at least. In the show he came from, during his teenage years, that was okay. This version… I never liked. I’m not going to act like I’m stuck in the past. I don’t want to see him do some stuff for kids, as this comic isn’t for kids. I just now that… I never liked him. People who do like him, that’s your opinion, I won’t try to change it. But, don’t try to change mine, it will never happen. I also really never liked HIM. You know, our bad guy? The one from Power Puff Girls? I never really liked him. The reason I never liked either one of these two is simple. I never found either one to be funny or threatening. I just found them both incredibly annoying. I also thought I knew how Grim Tales was going. I thought that we would see a bit of Chi, not as much as we have, but a bit. Then we’d see the council, the trial, I actually had an idea for how the trial would go. Then, we’d see some conflict between Chi and the Grim Children, and then we’d see the thing that… I know you guys have seen a million times, but I kinda like the idea. Some crisis would happen that hurts Chi and the siblings, and she slowly opens up to them, and them to her, and she realizes she was an idiot, and kind of a bitch, and you probably figured out (incredibly pissed off at me) where this is going. I know Bleedman never reads the comments, so I shouldn’t worry how he feels. If he dislikes me, I won’t try to change him. If he doesn’t like my ideas, that’s his opinion. I too realized that… I was an idiot. Now, I have written my Grim Tales Alternate Universe, and I am Four Chapters in to it. Once I figure out oh to create a link from my IPad, I will give you guys a link to the first chapter. If you don’t want to read, that’s up to you. If you want to… I suggest you do. I won’t force you. But, if you do you find something you like. For now, goodbye.

    Mandy is a slut but that is only so she can have some of the most powerful children in the underworld it even says so in the earlier characters

    • Keiken

      12/19/2016 at 12:29am

      Well,seems like not everybody can actually bear children naturally in the underworld, Mandy’s baby factory might be her only advantage among supernatural-bringers-of-doom beings.

    Well I’ve finally caught up, the chapter is slower paced than I anticipated but it was all worth it to see Aku again at the very least. I suspect that we will see that Him isn’t going to make a move now as it will be unwise from a character point of view, though from a story point of view it would require careful planning to have it paced correctly. We can probably just expect something deceptive or confusing to buildup to an larger elaborate scheme. The climatic event to watch out for this chapter which we possibly won’t even get to by the end of it, will be the fight between Chi and The House of Grim. It’s all long game from here.

    reason why it’s bad even if two people are totally ok with it:

    everyone is part of the Circle of Life and shit and all of our lives all affect everyone else’s lives too, which is highly inconvenient and shit but them’s the breaks.

    you mess up society if you go this way. it’s a thing and all.


  • darthparallax

    12/09/2016 at 11:42am

    Here’s the thing: think carefully about all the darkness in the soul this whole story shows us:

    the murderous glee, the sheer terror, and the arousal are all primal feelings. there are certainly reasons we should normally suppress them. but the attraction to all things patently obviously evil is, well, attractive.

    and if two people open up to each other enough that they level about how much they enjoy giving into evil, well, this happens.

    if you don’t understand it, if the anger you feel is the type of anger associated with hot confusion, instead of cold clear bitterness, then that’s bad form on your end.

    now, if in response to the cold plotting and counter-plotting, you decide you like having an evil S.O. and your evil S.O. likes it when you’re evil…..well, then it goes from cold bitterness to hot bitterness and it’s real smexy. :3

    but I mean: warning: if there’s any chance at all of hell existing, this type of thinking and behavior is very likely an excellent way to go there. you pretty much have to be so dark and twisted you’re actually ready for all of the Evulz.

    it would turn you into the sort of person that doesn’t even want what Heaven’s selling. like, best case scenario for your soul is it blows up in your face and you realize what you’ve done.

    worst case scenario for your soul is you just revel in sinking deeper and deeper into the darkness until you become desperate for someone you try to push around as a Sith Apprentice until they kill you, which is all you ever wanted from them. <3

    i think we do need to call it out as really bad XD

    but i mean as we're also all adults let's not pretend like we don't/can't understand it….

    i think Mandy is pretty obviously the Dom….

    Call me sexist and such, but for some reason, cheating and affairs just kind of piss me off. Even more when the partner knows. I just don’t know why, given that I like to read such material in my others… lets say “mature” form of entertainment.

      This is hell, get off your high horse unless its either a skeleton or made of darkness and sin. My point being that if you’re okay with Mandy having feelings for Junior which you should be given that you’ve read so far. Then you should be okay with an affair.

    I would like to see Mandy reaction when Grimm cheated on her i would love to see it. In fact if that ever happens in the future i wonder if she will accept it or will she snap wondering after all she did not have any other child after the twin so what do you think happen that made her stop sleeping around. Still even if Grimm cannot have kids that does not mean he cannot shapeshift into an organic being so he can have sex i mean he still a dude right plus i really really want to she Mandy reaction when she finds out hahahahaha.

    • Keiken

      That would be interesting indeed.

  • Lolwutpear_126

    12/06/2016 at 4:14pm

    Hmm, I actually am not buying the fact that Mandy is sleeping with powerful rulers just to have some kind of control over them through their shared offspring. Why? For the simple fact that, given the dubious morale going around in the Underworld, I do not believe that these rulers give that much importance to their children, or really care for them. Take Mandy and Grim’s relationship to Junior and Minnie, for example. Have we ever seen real proof of affection between these parents and children? Mandy didn’t seem to care much that her daughter, which she had with Nergal Jr., got torn apart. Nor did she visibly care when Junior became one with the Pumpkin Monster. She even violently slapped her son, and she had her daughter shoot arrows at him too. What does this tell us, the readers? Well, if Mandy truly gave that much value to her offspring, she wouldn’t be treating them like crap. Same goes for HIM and Mimi. HIM had Mimi’s hands and feet cut off and replaced them with pinchers. He tortured her to the point that he broke Mimi to the point that she couldn’t talk anymore. The only exception to the rule seems to be Aku/Ikra, who clearly seems to care about their daughter Chi. Yet, most rulers don’t really seem to care what happens to their offspring, so why would Mandy use her womb to gain power, if a ruler could ultimately choose to neglect the result of a one-night-stand depending on their mood, a snap of their fingers? I don’t understand. Even Dark Danny doesn’t seem to care much about the fact that any potential son of his and Mandy were to beat him up after many years. So yeah, I think Mandy is indeed just whoring herself out because she has no other power to her disposal. She’s literally the slut of the Underworld. If not, she probably would’ve been torn to shreds by now by beings much more powerful than her. Chi shouldn’t be the one wearing a slave Leia outfit, but Mandy.

    • Keiken

      12/08/2016 at 5:14am

      Hey long time! Been a while since I logged into new site. And to respond to this.. well, is the underworld, everybody seem to give more importance to hierarchy and heirloom than actual family values. Is all a power play of sorts. Him doing all those things to Mimi was power play, Grim ensuring someone inherits his position if he was to be gone is also a way of ensuring power. Is Mandy a slut? Well yea, but aside from that we have only seen her sleep around with important or really powerful characters, perhaps she just wants strong children that can go along with her “take what you want” ideology. She is not someone to get emotionally invested either, she doesn’t really have romantic emotions for any of her one night stands or even Grim himself, nor her children. She is that cold.

      • Lolwutpear_126

        12/09/2016 at 8:48am

        That’s not what I meant. I wasn’t hinting at family values at all. I know that sort of thing is very rare in the underworld, and I find it funny that it has to be Aku of all people who’s being actually genuinely concerned about his daughter. What I meant is that any sorts of offspring just doesn’t seem to have any value in the Underworld. Grim is immortal, right? So why would he even need children? And HIM could just as easily snap Mimi’s neck as soon as he starts considering her a threat to his power. What use is it to have children with mighty overlords when they don’t seem to have any inherent value to them? When Mandy can order her daughter to simply shoot her son down, what does that imply? That children are merely tools in the Underworld, tools which can be replaced. I don’t see Dark Danny caring for any of his offspring either, and I think most overlords won’t even hesitate to kill of any children they may have. So yeah, what’s Mandy’s actual strategy behind having children when these can just be killed off or replaced at any given point? I daresay Mandy simply has no other option to stay alive, as she simply doesn’t have any special powers like most of the powerful beings in the Underworld.

          “Children are basically tools”
          Yup that summarizes it pretty well. Mandy is most likely not making her house a target for powerful characters by adding the same blood of this powerful characters to the house.But that’s just an assumption. Heh, now I really wonder who Jr.’s father is.. Hey! I actually remember you from back when the original forum was up. How have things been? R peeps still arguing over bleeds fetishes? haha

    its kinda uncharacteristic of Mandy to be fucking everyone like a slut, she’s the “Bitch Queen” not the “Slut Queen” god damn it

    • Santessen

      12/04/2016 at 8:32pm

      Actually it is PERFECTLY in character for her. You have to keep in mind her motivation for all of that sleeping around. She isn’t doing it for pleasure (or at least, not wholly). Each person she has intercourse with seems to be with the goal of siring a child with another powerful member of the Underworld elite; to try and have a blood tie to them and (one would hope) a child who she can control eventually on the throne (In fact, it would not surprise me if she timed these liaisons with her estrus cycle to maximize her chance of conceiving). As the “Bitch Queen” what Mandy wants above all else is power, absolute power and being the “Mother of Kings” is a good way to do that. She will use ANY means to get more power, and, to her, her vagina is presumably just another tool one that, to quote a story again “she can sell and sell again and yet still retain.”

      • BlackRex16

        12/05/2016 at 4:41am

        I got to agree with you there, power is what she wants or it seems like it to most of us. A war will probably male those who fear her, fear her even more. A few pages back we see her preparing for war, I think she’s using some leftover parts from the pumpkin thing. I do see her becoming a enemy to junior in the future, but we’ll see when more updates come out.

    • silvercover

      12/05/2016 at 12:02pm

      its not everyone, just the extremely powerful(and arguably handsome) guys.

      I mean you cant say mandy doesnt have sexual urges. her normal outfit is also extremely revealing, when she could wear a more modest outfit.

      • Santessen

        12/05/2016 at 1:57pm

        Quite likely, but the costume could just be another part of the whole seduction image. She after all has to get these other powerful beings to WANT to sleep with her (I know that female on male rape is possible, but I don’t see that as a likely option. Mandy is a great tactician and presumably has some really sick fighting moves, but she doesn’t look like she is abnormally physically strong. Besides rape might prove a challenge in securing the legitimacy of any child she would bear (a key part of making sure the kid gets to be successor is making sure that whoever is in power ACCEPTS him or her as successor, which they might not if the conception was against their will) So making sure she is as sexy looking as possible is a good way to keep her intended targets nice and lusty. If, when the war actually goes down, Mandy goes to stand on the battlefield herself, and she is wearing armor (or even a dominatrix type pseudo military/nazi uniform, instead of her lingerie/stilettos look, I won’t be surprised in the least.)

    12/04/2016 at 12:08pm

    Hmm… Didn’t Danny brag to Grim before how Mandy said he was the best? Did she do it just to appease his ego? Doesn’t sound like Mandy. Maybe she’s just saying this now while genuinely trying to make Grim feel better in her own twisted way. Bleed’s art changed so much since then, it used to be very defined, men looked muscular, especially Danny and Him. Now they look like stick figures. Can’t say I like that at all. The page in general is not bad, I’m just wondering where is Grim taking us down this memory lane.

      12/05/2016 at 6:27pm

      Or, you know, Dan could have been lying to make Grim feel bad. It certainly wouldn’t be out of character for him to do so.

    • Keiken

      12/08/2016 at 8:40am

      Danny still looks bulky to me, and well the only two other males are Jack and Grim, they are basically sticks men in their own media..

    • Rayna

      12/11/2016 at 8:07am

      If I recall correctly, Dan said he was the best ‘of the three’–the three fathers of Mandy’s children. Mandy could have slept with other people, and she *has* had sexual relations with Grim himself.

  • 12/04/2016 at 11:55am

    The grammar is appalling, however the page on itself isn’t that bad, it gives us a nice reminder of how good the comic used to be

    12/04/2016 at 7:56am

    Remember he is a skeleton under that robe, he doesn’t have a *cough, COUGH!!!* In there to pleas the Queen of Bitches her self. Also some might say he turned human in the comic in the beginning, but that was just a mask to get in. In other words Jr isn’t even his son, he was aborted stated my Nergal. We don’t know who jr’s real father is yet, *side not: or they said it in the comic but I read it to fast. SO the whole war thing is understand able as for the cheating, for crying out loud she did it with NERGAL JR!?!? so what if she did it with a ghost, she did it with half demon lol. But then again Grim did get mad a Nergal for his son did it with Mandy XD it’s the underworld after all what can yah do?

    • Santessen

      12/04/2016 at 8:35pm

    • SirBruno95

      12/07/2016 at 5:53pm

      She didn’t exatly cheated Grimm with Negral Jr. More like it was planed that he was to impregnate her, but he interfered when Grimm was meant to turn Minie into an undead. He said so himself.

        12/07/2016 at 11:27pm

You might have been here longer. I found this comic on chapter 4 when I was maybe 10 or 12? Idk still we can agree with one thing Mandy is a Bitch right?

    Hell hath no fury like Mandy, it seems. And what an odd relationship the two of them have. Truly something beyond my understanding.

  • 12/04/2016 at 6:09am

    So… Mandy WANTS war, and has no sense of regret. I knew the second part, given what I watched from the show. Wanting war… Given that she somehow had a Hitler poster in her bedroom, (Which I would rant about but the Comment Section is too small for that) when she was younger, (I hope she got rid of it, as she got older.) I guess wanting war is a given if you idolize the biggest murder in history.

    • Keiken

      12/08/2016 at 8:34am

      I’m sorry, but wouldn’t Mao Zedong be a bigger murderer than him? Mandy has always been cold and severe, if she wants something she will just take it. The last crisis reminded her of this, returning her to a character that resembles more the Mandy from the show.

      • 12/09/2016 at 8:21pm

        No, in the earlier Grim Tales pages, you see a Hitler poster in Mandy’s bedroom, back when she was young. I’m not sure abou Mao, but I think the biggest murderer in history, would probably be Joseph Stalin (or maybe Heinrich Himmler). In fact, given how Mandy’s nature is, how do we know she doesn’t have admiration for Mao, or even O’l Joe for that matter? I’m not saying I like the idea, but I never understood why it was Hitler. But given Mandy’s evil nature, I would not be surprised in the least, if she DID have admiration for all three of em. But, I always wondered, ‘why a historical murder, when there are PLENTY of famous fictional villains who tried to takeover the world. (Even though Stalin was closest to succeeding).’

        Well, I hope I’ve made my point. Plus, I communicated with one of Bleedman’s friends on Devianart. They said I can make my own Grim Tales AU, as long as I don’t take this version from Bleedman. Which, I have no further interest in doing. I’m three chapters into my AU on Deviantart. I’ve rambled long enough. Goodbye

            Skully hate to brake it to you but Grim is a pussy. He is such a pussy, that he lost to a mentally retarded 10’s old hamster that had crippling depression. By far Grim must be the weakest Reaper in that world. The scythe is the true death but it is nothing when it’s being held by the reaper that got out played by two kids in a limbo contest to “the DEATH”.

        • Glyphayel

          12/06/2016 at 8:00pm

          Yeah, it’s just like Grimm Xcix said. In the original cartoon you can see in every single episode of the GRim Adventures of Billy and Mandy that Grim is a freakin’ weakling, was already being trampled by Billy and Mandy when they were kids, so it makes perfect sense that he’s being trampled over with her as his wife.

          Grim CAN be menacing, that’s why he’s the Reaper, after all. But well, remove the scythe and he’ basically useless – he says so himself quite a few times.

          • SirBruno95

            12/07/2016 at 5:49pm

            A fact that people seem to be forgeting is that, after Mandy switched with Grimm for a day, and her actions led to 9/11, Grimm became more of a more evil and proactive in his line of duty. He stated, in the early pages of the comics, that he took more glee out of job from then on. Grimm went back to his roots of hearthless acts of evil and chaos after that. He even went to collect Mandy’s soul.

            Another fact, Grimm allows Mandy to have affairs becasue thats how he gets offsprings. Remeber that page where it showed that to get Junior as his rightful son he had to kill Mandie’s newborn child?

            Grimm is no pussy in this comic series. Maybe a comic relief at some points, but no pussie. He lets mandy do what she wants because whats the point of stoping her? At the end he just gets the chance to get a Grimm daughter like he said he wanted after we learned about Minie origins.

            This comic has been going for so long that people tend to forget some key aspects the charactes stated or went through to get at this point. People just want to complain for reasons outside of the comic itself. I’m personally happy of having a new page to red every two or so weeks ago. It took months to get an update and people were happy, now they get one every other week and trash on the artist.

            I just hope that Bleed doesn’t give up on the comic because of how toxic his fans are.

            12/07/2016 at 11:22pm

            ok ok not starting a fight, one I love this comic and the art work but one thing. I grew up with this cartoon and when my brother found this comic. I stayed with this comic. But the point of this is Grimm that we are taking about. What do you call A Grim Reaper with out a scythe?

          • TheBoss

            12/17/2016 at 9:36pm

            Grimm Xcix has a point. We’re not trying to cause a war of our own in the comment section. But let’s remember that the only thing that makes a Grim reaper a grim reaper is the scythe. Grim Jr. would have to be the only exception, thanks to his nergaling half, he doesn’t need a scythe 85% if the time, especially in ‘Afterbirth’.
            But before I get off topic, we need to admit that yes, Grim is dangerous and intimidating in his own way and when he wants to be, but as noted to multiple times, without his scythe he’s kinda…..meh.

        I’m kinda blind when it comes to stuff like this.

          Well let’s start with the very first lines. The Jamaican accent is rather inconsistent. I get he’s meant to SOUND as he does in the show (and I went for the same effect in my day) but it gets very confusing.

          “Unbeaten heart” sounds like when your heart is better than all other hearts. Unbeatin’ would have been better there. Apostrophes, yo.

          Mandy’s first line “And for what reason would I possibly have for doing that?” is a real corker. She’s merging two possible wordings into one and it doesn’t work at all. “And for what reason would I do that?” or “What reason would I possibly have for doing that?” The double ‘for’ is key here.
          DarKingdomHearts pointed this out in his comment down below.

          I realise the page title may be a pun but it also comes off as a grammatical error. Also, I wonder from NEK’s comment, how does a previously shown event (the details of which were already covered by the comic directly) get worse? We already know what happened in the past. It can’t ‘get worse’. Not unless some previously unseen factor was suddenly a major player in the plot all along.
          Ya know, like Chi!

            I think that maybe NEK’s comment could be referring to more flashbacks that we are going to see that were not part of the original story. Perhaps showing some of the things that happened between the Demon Reaper Incident and when Mimi broke into the castle or perhaps even some flashbacks to before Junior and Minnie were even born. It was hinted at that Mandy used to be HIM’s queens and this page could certainly segue into that time.
