          I’m allowed to have an opinion, as it’s one based on personal experience, and I’m also allowed to express that if I wish.
          If you wanna challenge what I do, I suggest you come up with a suitable counter-argument to my ‘bitching’.

          Otherwise boot off, sunshine.

            If I wanted to be grandiose and figurative I could say he’s continuing to rape something that was once important to me.
            Your responses to me are nonsense and uninformed.

    Are people still on that whole cameo thing? Geez, the comic is based on a show where two young children enslaved the Grim Reaper to be their “friend”, and this is when you start questioning shit?

    In the Ben 10’s lore, there’s a dimention called the Null Void what is used as a prison. The graphic style (the red sky, those flying rocs) feats, and It can be a part of the underworld realm that the aliens use as a prison, even if they don’t know what it really is.

    It feats with the lore, because Kevin were enprisoned here (but Brooks makes no sense…. Oh and you know what ? we fucking don’t care about the lore, bleedy’s world is amasing and we don’t have to search the litle errors everywhere…. Even if it enjoys some of us, what I perfectly understand)

          In fact, make him an essential part of the comic. It’d be hilarious and there could be a lot to do with it.
          I’m serious about this.

            06/05/2016 at 11:53am

            Are you really intent on destroying this comic as a whole? It’s people like you who are partially responsible for the fact that most web comics, however serious and integer the intent of the creator initially was, eventually fall from grace and shrivel up into a mess of fan service and nonsensical popular culture references. Such as what is currently happening with this comic.

          • athdlg

            06/05/2016 at 12:12pm

            None of us have any influence over this comic. Bleedman doesn’t care, NEK might not either. To think such a thing as us having an ability to influence his work and deciding what he should be doing with his comic as if he actually cares seems rather selfish as ‘fans’. If a creator were to be influenced by that rather than going off of their own desires, welp, it’s on them.

    “Feel your wrath”, it seemed like the bounty hunter that lead you to meet Mimi could say otherwise.

  • 06/03/2016 at 9:12pm

    Don’t forget people. This story takes place in an alternate ppgd universe where all the heroes have been killed. Those guys most likely have nowhere else to go but the Underworld.

    • Grids

      06/03/2016 at 9:51pm

      Dude I know, I wrote the foundation of the damn thing. You’re telling me that someone like Rook, who is from another planet altogether, and travels the Omniverse, has nowhere else to go despite the destruction of one planet?

      • VIRTU

        06/04/2016 at 6:56am

        Grids when you set up the foundation for grin tales did you ever plan on having any of the Heroes survive ? Did you ever consider Ben 10 apart of those fallen Heros? ( only asking since of the recent cameos )

        • Grids

          06/05/2016 at 9:16am

          When I started on GT I don’t think Ben10 even existed. The general thing with the Fall of Heroes was that earth was quarantined from the other realms at the conclusion. If humans on earth still exist, they’re cut off from heaven and hell because they believed it had fallen too far from stability.

          Ben10 was never considered but clearly after I left, sticking to what’s already been establish hasn’t really been considered either.

          • VIRTU

            06/05/2016 at 7:23pm

            Grids had some questions for you regarding your original GT plan
            1. Is the Danny ( not dark danny) dead and if so how like is his ghost half somewhere ?
            2. What happened to genral skarr? since he wasn’t with the rest of underfist in there finale battle with HIM
            3. Did him use a demon army to conqur the world or just megaville ?
            4. What’s The Story Behind Blossom and Him
            5. How Did Helga become become Minnie’s tutor ? did she die in the battle of megaville?
            6. Whats the story behind mina and the count in grim tales?
            7. did you ever plan to have any monsters from courage the cowardly dog appear ?

          • Lolwutpear_126

            06/06/2016 at 9:03am

            I doubt any of those questions will ever get a proper answer because NEK is currently in charge, thus the story can go all directions now. And I literally mean ALL directions. A pity, since I wonder about most of your questions as well.

          • Grids

            06/06/2016 at 11:50am

            I’m happy to answer those questions if you want, and you can decide for yourself whether the original version was preferable?

          • VIRTU

            06/06/2016 at 5:09pm

            oh please to answer im certain your version is better

          • Grids

            06/07/2016 at 9:59am


            1. Most likely. With Dark Danny featured regularly there were no plans to use the original.
            2. In all likelihood, left on Earth when the hordes came.
            3. The heroes were spread wide with Megaville as one of their hubs. The intent was for the whole world in ruin – destroying one measly city isn’t much to brag about.
            4. I’d rather leave this one alone in case NEK covers it. When he does it wrong, THEN I will tell you. He’s already messed up Mimi’s powers. If by some minor miracle I got my job back I’d correct that rather quick.
            5. If the original story plan had unfolded it would be shown that Mandy provided refuge to other humans in her domain, on the strict proviso that they were of direct service to Her Majesty. Mandy is all about making use of the available resources. Again, it’d be something revisited if I had the reins again.
            6. There was going to be a Further Orientation file concerning her. The Further Orientation thing in general was to serve as a method of introducing an original character to the fray, one who doesn’t fight in the conventional sense like basically every other character in sight. Ask me this one again sometime…
            7. No.

            That is What Would Grids Do.

          • ULTRADJ

            06/07/2016 at 9:06pm

            Say NEK, why don’t you take some of these ideas to heart instead of wasting time on Chi? I mean, at the rate this is going, with all this Chi focus, will the comic continue like this for another two chapters focusing on Chi? That would take like, three years without getting anywhere. Use some of these ideas that can further the comic instead of hinder it, NEK. I would generally like to hear from you NEK, please respond.

    • 06/03/2016 at 9:54pm

      It never has been confirmed that all the heroes have died. We know it a 100% of Samurai Jack, Blossom and Dexter

    If Rook in the underworld, could that mean he’s death ?

  • Mr.Tinkertrain

    06/03/2016 at 4:03pm

    Holy shit, why is everyone complaining about the clothes change and the out of place cameos? You do realize these comics are based on cartoons in which things like that are commonplace, right? I mean, maybe because this isn’t actually the cartoon that makes more sense for people to be upset, but it’s almost like people are just looking for any excuse to rag on the person making this.

    • 06/03/2016 at 4:19pm

      It is more because Grim Tales is supposed to be a serious comic, but that is now past time since NEK started on it. Cameo’s are allowed of course, but this just makes no sense, right? Rook and young Kevin in one page… in the Underworld. It doesn’t make sense in the Ben 10 timeline.

      Grim Tales deals with darker and more serious stuff… or at least that is what it was intended to be. Ben 10 cameo’s are more in place in PPGD for example, but nonetheless Ben 10 is too big of an universe to show in either comic.

      • Darius14

        06/03/2016 at 5:38pm

        well barring any changes in the timeline (which there was a big one) we do not know at how rook ages or even if you age in hell especially if your not a denizen of it. rook might have done some dark stuff to survive that may have landed him in this underworld. rook does have a temper (rare as it is to see) and with Ben dead he might had to do some things. now you guys are assuming that is kevin but remember that Devlin (devin can’t remember that name) has that form as his default form. (which was the same future that they linked back to when the creaters realized they didn’t like ultimate ben) what if he died, he might have had a small record. as aku’s hell seems to be one of the lightest of the hells.

        • Grids

          06/03/2016 at 8:51pm

          Couldn’t a more sensible cameo be used instead then? If you have to invent possible scenarios in order for it to make any sense, the cameo fails to be anything other than distracting whimsy.

      • Mr.Tinkertrain

        06/03/2016 at 6:52pm

        I don’t mind cameos not making sense because they’re unimportant to the plot. You could criticize something important like the fact that nobody recognizes Chi even though her face is plastered on every billboard and giant screen on the planet, and she’s the daughter of the immortal ruler of the planet who makes sure everyone knows who he is

        • Lolwutpear_126

          06/04/2016 at 11:53am

          The problem is that the pages with Chi so far haven’t really been relevant to the overall plot of the story. How are the two last pages adding anything of relevance? Why do we need to see Chi sitting in a saloon and soon filling five pages gobbling up her double order? Why is this whole Western gimmick needed? What does it add? So far I can only see it slowing down the whole comic once again.

          Also, Ben 10 seems farfetched for a cameo in this comic.

        • red bear

          06/06/2016 at 6:56pm

          May be that is the exact reason why nobody react? It’s like, I don’t know, Barack Obama entering your local pub in plain clothing without any kind of security nearby. Can you believe it?

      • red bear

        06/06/2016 at 6:54pm

        As far as I remember, there was people complaining about it – “wah, our favorite child cartoons being remade into something grim & gritty, how dare you!” So may be because of that.

  • 06/03/2016 at 3:40pm

    Why the Ben 10 cameos? It doesn’t make any sense for them to be in the Underworld… then just place more random Samurai Jack peeps in the background or something , but not this. Stupid illogical cameo’s like these really make me mad!

      Obviously, you didn’t watch ALF, am I right?

  • Shadow Knight Destroyer

    06/03/2016 at 12:25pm

    I wonder how Ben 10 died since Mandy has his watch and his old rival and partner are also in that pub.

    • red bear

      06/06/2016 at 6:49pm

      Wait, what? Where it was? (the watch) I’m not that familiar with Ben10.

      • Shadow Knight Destroyer

        06/07/2016 at 3:37pm

        Ben’s partner from Omniverse and his rival from the original

        • red bear

          06/08/2016 at 6:06am

          I’m not asking “who”, I’m asking “where” – i.e. where (when) was the page with “Mandy has his watch”.

          • Shadow Knight Destroyer

            06/08/2016 at 12:43pm

            It was in Mandy’s vault and if I’m right it was when Mimi broke into it, I can’t remember what page I remember seeing it, plus it was marked down as the things she has in wiki. Also she has the Thunder Cats sword….. I honestly don’t know where she got those things.

  • SkyDrops

    06/03/2016 at 9:39am

    I don’t think Rook could mourn over Ben.. The younger version of Kevin is sitting in the background…

    • Grids

      06/03/2016 at 11:29am

      Makes the question all the more prevalent – why are Ben10 characters hanging out in Aku’s realm?

      This is the underworld, not undertown.

      • Megadon

        06/04/2016 at 3:16am

        Again my personal understanding of the underworld: time is irrelevant. The Underworld (to the best of my understanding) is series of multiple dimensions that border between The Realm of the Living and Hell. So in a place where multiple dimensions and possibilities exist time become irrelevant.

  • numa430

    06/03/2016 at 6:12am

    And i notice a Rook cameo drowning his sorrow over the lost of Ben Tennyson i would guess?

    • Grids

      06/03/2016 at 6:15am

      An alien dude mourning the loss of his human friend (who would probably be the same age as Mandy now), drinking and moping around in the UNDERWORLD, specifically the outer limits of Aku’s domain?

      Seems legit.
      Two pages in to Chi’s foray and the cameos have already stopped making sense.

      • Possessedmofo

        06/03/2016 at 10:52am

        Hmm, I always found these cameos to be delightful even if they are farfetched at times.

          Well it’s not like there much plot left to ruin…

  • Grids

    06/03/2016 at 6:06am

    Underage drinking endorsement. Delightful. Glad to see her beloved Mimi is suuuuch a priority.

    And what the hell is Rook doing there? This page isn’t getting us anywhere.

    • red bear

      06/06/2016 at 6:47pm

      Shocking, I know? Well, that’s for West. If you look at some anime – and especially manga (or, even better, light novels) – you’ll find that it’s not that rare as in West. And just wait for it. It’s not like she’s already drinking.
      As far as I understand, it’s not about Chi wanting to eat that bad. It’s about getting attention of bad dudes.
