    Facepalm, and now you wish you had trained her sooner.

  • Adam McGarry

    Well, that took a Grave turn

    • Victor Masi

      …..eh, at least it’s not an ice pun.

      • Yeah that puts the perspective in half…

        Poor training dummy T^T He had a lot to live for.

      • cr1ms0n t1ger

        Dude, that’s cold. Not cool, brah. Quite chilling indeed. I give it an absolute zero/10. That icy enough 4 ya?

        • Victor Masi

          stop reminding me that Joel Schumacher’s Batman & Robin actually exists

          • cr1ms0n t1ger

            *sings* The cold never bothered me anyway. :3

          • Victor Masi

            ok, I’ll give you a pass on that one…..especially seeing how unlike Batman & Robin, Frozen is actually very good.

  • Majinkoba

    Wait wait, so your own daughter has a similar power to your own, and seemingly you have now learned to control your own power, so then why not have started to teach Sesame how to understand her power as early as you could have! There is literally no one better equipped to teach her! *Jackie Chan wtf motion*

    Even if he is afraid that she could lose control and do bad things like he once did, that’s still faulty reasoning, our kids are not us, and education can only help that all the more.

    • Phuufy

      Not a wise decision on his part at all. He was at least trying to make up for it at this point – but bad timing is bad.

    • natchu96

      Panicked people don’t think clearly.

      Though 10 years is a long time to remain panicked . . .

      • Valkeiper2012

        10 years… ?
        may not be how long he was panicked. It may well be how long it took for her to prove she may control the power once it was ‘released’.

        think about it. if she was anywhere like a human teenager, ‘control’ isn’t exactly her best attribute

        and think about the danger even the slightest power can be when wielded by a teenager

    • Vadelent

      Essentially what I said two pages ago. Thank you πŸ™‚

  • CinnamonSalve

    It takes a long time for someone who shelters their children to admit that they may be ready to accept their responsibilities. Another one of those unfortunate times…

  • I respect his decision really, I mean would we really want to see little Sesame wielding a giant sword and killing other kids out of emotional dispute? Remember, even trained kids or teenagers can forget temperamental order when something really blows their steam off (and bullying can result to something ugly if given that chance). And it’s a good thing too, given that Sesame’s mom is dead, who else would comfort her then? (I think her grandma would, but I still say her mother would’ve done better if she went batshit insane)

    And also… the soldier… umm. isn’t there like suppose to be sergeants and other ranks to lead without the general? I mean it’s kinda hard enough that the General has to deal with emotional trauma from being a widower and raising two kids (one having a special power even) I’m starting to think that soldier isn’t a “soldier”…. I think…

    General Ackbar: It’s a trap!

    <.<
    What he said.

    • Phuufy

      Ah yes, a decision made out of fear – the last thing he would want his one of girls to become like he was. Sesame’s maternal Grandmother did help alot back when she was still kicking. For a serious attack like this he would still need to be informed and called to action.

      • Well it might still be a trap, for all we readers know that soldier is shape-shifting tentacle monster from the 78th Dimension. Or maybe some sort of Dahakian robotic imitation suit made for specifically for cloaking assassins. Or… it could be Lovecraft Monsters hybridized with Feras, the possibilities are imminent! >:3

  • Tallon-1

    uh oh , I know how that ends ;-;

  • Jackson Miles

    Yes!!! Finally she can train.

    • Victor Masi

      HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALELUJAH!!!!!! HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAALELUJAH!!!!!!!

  • cr1ms0n t1ger

    That ponytail looks nice on Sesame.
    Dark and mysterious past, you say? I wonder: does that have anything to do with the secret organisation that’s looking after the group?

  • BlackWind

    Hey look at that Skidd is making a cameo appearance as that soldier XD

    • Phuufy

      That’s not Skidd, just a random guy.

  • Victor Masi

    is it me or does General Akane kind of look like Dracula now?

  • jrh150482

    Panel 5: It should be ‘I’ve run’, not ‘I’ve ran’, unless that’s the way General Akane talks.

  • Grayphus Wolf

    And at a time when more details of why our Sesame must beware not to let the anger take your heart, the fatality comes knocking on your door!

    It’s time to see what she looks for in your search!

  • Borderwolf

    From the look of that broadsword that Sesame used, it looks like the same one that she had stolen from her. So if the swords are the same one, no wonder that Sesame was angry for Dante stealing it.

    • Grayphus Wolf

      I also thought that the sword seen now, the Broadsword, the same we see Sesame using at the beginning of the adventure.However, she looks a little different. Still, Dante must have converted that sword in gold coins.

  • ACSB

    Nice pun, skid… Cut short…

  • Shadowkey392

    I’ve got a baaad feeling about this…

  • Silvermain

    Ah some exposition on here abilities….and her sword! I really hope she get’s it back from that damn Thief Dante.

    • Valkeiper2012

      damn thief? I thought that was one word.

      • James-Polymer

        No, he means someone who steals barriers used to control the flow of water in rivers and streams.

  • GG1

    So the 2 graves, one is the mother, but whose the other one? Also when will we’ll get back to Kylar and his team looking for the young prince? I’ve got to hand it to you & Teh Puufs, you really know how to create a really terrific story. Would love to see Uberquest in a book, or better yet a movie.

    • Phuufy

      It’s her grandmother. Kylar’s segment will continue very shortly after this segment with Sesame.

      • GG1

        Her grandmother Nana, the pretty calico cat 10 yrs earlier right? I hope you don’t leave us hanging on who or what is attacking the city square.

        • Victor Masi

          who knows? it could be Nazgul, it could be White Walkers, hell it could even be New Jersey governor Chris Christie

          • GG1

            Not unless there’s a bridge for Chris to cross and it would be easy to defeat him, just close it off.

          • Victor Masi

            haha, good one

          • GG1

            Glad you liked that, are you an artist? I’m not but really enjoy a lot of the work on The Belfry.

    • Victor Masi

      F**K YEAH, boy!!!!!

      • GG1

        Uh, say what?

  • Cory Tenorio

    Anyone else thinking someone sold out his family?

  • Anomaly

    Oh goody, is it bandits? or maybe some nasty wild critters. Either way they get to deal with a girl swinging a sword larger than herself.

  • Gotch

    The cliche is strong with this one.

  • cr1ms0n t1ger

    Has the update schedule been changed? Is this temporary or will it still be twice a weak?

    • Phuufy

      For the past month or so we haven’t been able to update as often, falling back to once a week updates. We will soon be going on a hiatus for about a month but will make a formal announcement prior to doing so. In the mean time we will have filler pages following the once a week schedule.

      • GG1

        OH, a month? Well I guess you both deserve a little break, thanks for the heads up. Will keep a watch when you come back. Say, what comics do you both read and enjoy on the Belfry? I enjoy quite a few as well as yours, top of my list.

      • Victor Masi

        aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand now the countdown just got a whole lot longer

  • Shadowkey392

    Great work on the comic thus far. Also, not an expert on these things, but that sword looks like more of a greatsword than a broadsword (just going by images I’ve seen).

  • Jagmaster69

    Did the grandmother die? GRANNY NOO!

  • Peter Anckorn

    Awesome page as ever! πŸ™‚ Just wanted to say in panel 5 I think it should be ‘I’ve run from my past’ rather than ‘I’ve ran from my past’. It could also be ‘For many years I ran from my past’-that would also work πŸ™‚ Keep those pages coming-I really like this comic a lot πŸ™‚

  • Alex Smith

    She grew some very long hair. I wonder when she cuts it off.

  • James-Polymer

    Hmmm…does Sesame come from this world’s equivalent of an Oriental culture? I ask because the armor worn by General Akane and the un-named (and probably soon to be dead) grunt appears similar to that used in feudal Japan.

  • Brett

    When suddenly, everyone died

  • cr1ms0n t1ger

    In words of a drug addict: I needz mah fix, maaan!!!

  • Andy Oh

    I have a question. Is this going to be an action-oriented web comic? Like, is there going to be many fight or action scenes?

    If so, I think it might be a good idea refer to fantasy or medieval comics.

    Course, I’m not asking you to draw on the same level as the high-tier professionals but rather I think the transitions as well as composition between the action, scene and dialogue is a bit jarring and forced. Particularly when the action component is involved. You do well when it comes to dialogue, story and characters but I think a filler panel could help with the transition between the action, scene and dialogue.

    Also, the slicing action at the top. If the top part of the straw dummy were to overlap on the sword’s cutting path, then it would show more depth. At first glance, the sword looks like it’s slicing in front of it rather than through it.

    That’s why you shouldn’t take the potion neat: you should take it in water…. 7@=Q
