My new selfless quest…

This is episode 181 of The Middle Age. You can read the story from the beginning here.

Once again, thanks to my wonderful supporters on Patreon! I couldn’t do this comic without you! Extra thanks to new Patreon supporters Alex and Mary!

This episode started out as a simple image of our hero finally picking up the Woeblade again. It wasn’t going to be a full-page image, it just turned out that way. I ended up spending the better part of a day drawing chain mail and sword glyphs. 🙂

I have no idea how I’ll fit this image in a print collection later. It’s way too vertical. Ah well, a problem for another day. 🙂

The new quest begins!

Reminder: The new softcover edition of The Middle Age – Sword Troubles is now available from Amazon! And it’s currently discounted (as of this posting)!

The new softcover edition of The Middle Age: Volume One is now availabe on! Thanks to everyone who ordered a copy and extra thanks to those of you who left a review!

Thanks again for your kind shares, comments, and support! 🙂

      Our hero is definitely in need of fluids! A great question! Don’t quote me, but it’s been pretty much the same day since Quimp woke up pinned to Phosphene’s sister. He cut himself free, fell, raced to find Phosphene, found her surrounded by dragon hunters, commenced with the vanquishings, fell again, and has been saying goodbyes, telling stories and bleeding out since.

    Need fluids? He looks like he’s doing the pee-pee dance 😉

    He could use a few liters of plasma, and a few of platelets as well, if he’s to have any chance of completing this new quest.

    I think that we are on the same day since episode 76, Feb 18, 2018…. The comic is aging like we would be if we were approaching light speed…. 🙂
