HEY GUYS. I'D APPRECIATE IF YOU DON'T ASK ABOUT ME DURING THIS ARC. I'M DOING WELL. THERE'S GONNA BE SOME HEAVY STUFF COMING BUT I'D RATHER TALK ABOUT IT WITH HOW IT RELATES TO THE COMIC THAN HOW IT REFLECTS ON ME, PAST OR PRESENT.

Oh, no problem.

I will say, as dark as it is, I like the details in the background of some of these panels with these signs. Helps illustrate his mental state at the moment.
SPIKE
it's like an intrusive thought and persistent subconscious feeling at the same time
Why did I do that
back then?
I lost it and tried
I tried it again
This time it cost me
Entrails and insides
Pieces, parts
Half of my mind

Move and pretend
pretend I'm alive
Time dragging, sliding
Never arrives

A thing made some noise
These noises at me
I don't, didn't want, couldn't
The thing wouldn't leave
The stupid fricking piece of crap
Punched out a spark
I crushed the stupid things face and
The pavement stained dark

Spark's out like a light
The small ember dies
Maybe, finally,
We'll compromise
SPIKE
thank you for writing these
the second stanza sounds like Zig-Zag lyrics and I love it so much

Second to last Panel:

Oh, does that tickle my Schadefreude Bone.

Speculative scenario: Abusive drunk thrown out of strip club. Him am mad; him am horny. Him decide to blow off steam and hit somebody. Him lead with right which am mistake.

Head go squish now.

I was thinking aggressive guy gets thrown out of a bar and tries to take it out on the first guy he sees (there's not any sex-related content in this comic ever)

too bad Speedy can wreck pretty much anyone, say goodbye to yer skull
