    I recognize the Reaper from Adventure Time, top left, Manuel Calavera from Grim Fandango’s game, bottom right, the others I don’t recognize, but the one in the middle above isn’t the anime version of Grim?

    So who are all the entities in the blurry images that Earl is looking at?

      I presume they are incarnations of the Grim Reaper in other media. I don’t recognize most of them, but the one on the upper right of the six blurry panels is definitely the Grim Reaper from Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey.

        I recognize 4 of the six. You’re right about the Bill & Ted Grim Reaper. The one below that one is Manny Calavera from the Grim Fandango games. The one to the left of him is actually Mandy herself, from Billy and Mandy. Since in down below, like Billy, she spent a day as the Reaper. The last one I recognize is the one in the top left corner. That’s the Death Farmer from Adventure Times. He’s good friends with Peppermint Butler.

          The one in the bottom left corner looks like Ryuk from Death Note.

          I’m not sure that the Reaper on the top right is Grim, I see something strange in his eyes and I don’t know but the one in the middle above isn’t the anime version of Grim?

    I like how they added Manny Calavera on the bottom right of the last picture. Being that I was a big fan of the game, this made me smile.

    wait…what? can someone explain this entire panel to me, because i am lost…

    • Megadon

      He’s explaining that despite always being at the end of the cycle of life & reincarnation, death is not part of the flow. So after battling his way pass the guards of the cycle he changed that. In exchange for a piece of his body, his power, and his soul that was changed. Now like all souls death now exist at both the beginning and the end of life’s cycle.

      But something tells me doing so comes with a price.

        Exactly. We are used to the concept of death being the end but in the beginning of creation it didn’t have to be so.

      • Mr.Duns

        04/19/2021 at 11:53am

        wait, but how is death not apart of the flow? before we see the reapers doing their job by reaping and killing entities. how are thy not a part of the cycle when, without them, the flow itself would not even function?

        • Megadon

          04/19/2021 at 2:12pm

          There’s a difference between serving the flow and being a part of it. Which is what got Earl pi55ed in the first place. They do all this work to keep the flow of life going and what do they get? More work, no rest, no reward, and no true acknowledgement. What’s more unlike the souls they collect, when a Reaper meets its end it’s not reborn, but instead becomes dust. So for them to do all this work for the flow and receive nothing but air and dust, that had to change.

            ok, so death finally became part of the flow…but what changed? what was different from their previous job? what is the diference between a reaper/death and a grim reaper?

    Is that Manny Calavera in the bottom right of the last panel?!

    • Megadon

      04/18/2021 at 12:22am

      Yes it is.

      • Gravekenshin

        04/18/2021 at 5:14pm

        Damn was not expecting a Grim Fandango reference/cameo.

        • Megadon

          There’s also Death from Bill and Ted, Death Farmer from Adventure Time, and Mandy because Mandy. I can’t make out the last 2. But if they used Lady Death from Marvel it would’ve been too obvious. But a fun one that would’ve confused everyone is if Bleed used the Reaper of Cards from Yugioh.

          • Gravekenshin

            04/19/2021 at 1:29am

            I’ve never seen Bill and Ted and never had a real interest in watching Adventure Time so those I would have missed. Yeah Reaper of the Cards would probably get quite a few people who didn’t grow up with Yu-Gi-Oh or at least seen the first season of the anime.

    Wow this is epic to say the least.

    Meh, not sure what is even going on in this comic anymore

      I sometimes feel the same, but it’s mostly the time between updates that bother me. As far as I know, PPGD is the one they prioritize so we can expect the other stories to be, well, like this. It all depends on Bleed’s creative mood at this point, and that’s such a stark contrast with the actual comic book industry. It’s kinda funny if you think about it.

      • NakaBrick

        I don’t think PPGD is their priority. PPGD has gone almost 2 months without a page in 2020. I believe that their priority is GG. Sorry if i looked rude or if something in my english is wrong. English is not my first language

          04/18/2021 at 2:13am

          Lol, no it’s cool. Regarding GG, i have no thoughts. I am not invested in it so i really don’t have an opinion. You could be right tho since Bleed seems to like making pages for it recently. I only mentiined PPGD bc it seems to be the only thing with a stable plot. (& I don’t think you were particularly rude. Rude people here tend to just cuss and not say anything relevant.)

            Honestly I believe it need to take time for everyone to get interested, since it new it would be obvious won’t be interested at first because everyone is so invested in GT & PPGD and want to see where the story leads, but if people were to give GG a chance and wait for the story to pick up it’s gear, people would be interested, hell if the Christmas special is anything to go by GG could be a multiverse thing connect to GT and PPGD!
