Sorry for the late update, folks. Totally struggled today for some reason with arting so it took forever.

A few things! Gallery has been updated with:
Super cute bouncing Cain ;___;* surprise in the comments section on Monday from CiciEnixa, who is the dearest little muffin ever. <333 Thank you Cici!! (Please check out her awesome webcomic, FD2R, if you haven't already >_>)

The wonderful Alicia of the awesome Western gunslingin' werewolf webcomic, Silver, gifted me with this BEAUTIFUL Michael fanart ;___;* isn'thegorgeousomg


You know how much I love you and your amazing bishie-fly-out-of-my-fingers talent, right, Alicia? :D *hugs <3* THANK YOU!!

And last point: I finished redrawing the first strip!! Thank you so much for your support!! ;__;*

You can check out the new first strip at Tapastic, linked from the thumbnail below. :) Alternatively, you can click here for the redrawn strip on DeviantArt.


I will be mirroring on Tapastic, but very slowly. XD;; Whenever I finish redrawing the 21 strips I said I would, then I will change up all the ComicFury strips in the archive in one go, so new readers can get a consistent run~

Oh my goodness, this was a long update. @_@ Uhm... yeah. I realise it's a lot of work redrawing the first chapter but I am so grateful for you guys providing incentive. :) Thank you!!

Uuuuupdaaaateeee :D <3

Yayyyy... <3 <3 <3

...oh, there are more ghost thingys...

...true Kylie - they seem like rats...

...and yayy, Cain seems to get the hang of it :D

Oh, who is that guy? How did he survive the criers - and what do criers do when they get (to) you?

rufiangel 29th Jan 2015, 10:30 AM edit delete reply
XD; I'm glad I got this update out, too! I hope tomorrow's won't take nearly as long to make.

Cain is starting to get the hang of it - he kind of has to when a ton of mobs just run at the group outta nowhere. XD;;

And criers just try to eat your face, that's all :D
mjkj 29th Jan 2015, 7:53 PM edit delete reply
Ah, ok, and what are they doing with it? just digesting it? or posing as you?
rufiangel 29th Jan 2015, 10:27 PM edit delete reply
Typically they just maul you. They then try to gnaw on your soul.
mjkj 30th Jan 2015, 8:02 AM edit delete reply
Yuck, soul gnawing is not good....

Seabiscuit 28th Jan 2015, 10:47 PM edit delete reply
Hahah! Love that rats panel and the chaos that follows! And the look on Cain face in the 2nd to last panel...Aw, he's totally getting the hang of things!

Ohh. Can't wait to see this fellow. His hair reminds me of Madou.;D
And looking forward to knowing why they're around...Hoho. If we find out.;D

(That alt text...Sneaky!;D)
(Dem fanarts ahhh!)
rufiangel 29th Jan 2015, 10:34 AM edit delete reply
Hahaha, thank you!! XD; That 'Oh, rats' panel took significantly longer than expected despite its size and chibi-ness so I was pretty mad at myself. XD;;; Glad you like it!!

Fun fact: they're kind of the same eyes he sports here XD

And yesh, I will do all I can to avoid panty shots in general XDDD

AND YESH the fanarts <333 ;w;* I am so blessed!! <333 (Plus with that Mikey, Alicia offset the Cain Factor™ a little bit XD... until Cici put it back to normal with the bouncing Cain but hey, I'll take what I can of Mike!)
Jarvi 28th Jan 2015, 11:10 PM edit delete reply
Practice, practice, and you'll be awesome Cain! :)

Yes! It's... it's like being a webcomic artist O.O
Headgamer 29th Jan 2015, 1:22 AM edit delete reply
I'm going to lol so hard if it's the purple haired guy in the robe back in comic 204.

These pages have been really colorful lately. :)
Jarvi 29th Jan 2015, 8:19 AM edit delete reply
Not that one. The other one with purple hair, on the right, with white shirt. He has a similar ponytail :)
rufiangel 29th Jan 2015, 10:36 AM edit delete reply
Hehe, it's those murals~! XD; Those murals have been brightening up everything with pastels and primaries. XD;; This is probably going to really contrast (unintentionally) with the later pages when they exit the passage and they're back out in the open again... then we will get a different kind colour contrast. Lots of red on blue~ ;)

(I kid! ... sort of)
Crestlinger 29th Jan 2015, 1:31 AM edit delete reply
So it Seems to have gone Kylie 3, Michael and Nemi 1 each, unless Kylie got in some multiple hits.
rufiangel 29th Jan 2015, 10:37 AM edit delete reply
Hahaha, nice count!

I didn't draw them all but there were more than five criers. Ratio-wise, though, I wouldn't be surprised if that's how it worked out. :)
Alicia 29th Jan 2015, 2:26 AM edit delete reply
Hmm... who is this new person? :3 This page is great! Also, that redrawn first page... *.* WOW! Not to say I don't like the original pages, but MAN this new one looks amazing! There is no comparison! You have grown so much as an artist, rufi! <3 SO MUCH TALENT!

Ha ha and also thanks for putting up Michael. XD I'll draw you a more legit SF fan art soon, I promise! :D <3
rufiangel 29th Jan 2015, 10:39 AM edit delete reply
D'awww, Alicia! ;w;* Thank you so much for the encouragement!! I still feel that I have a long way to go but it's been good to know I've come a long way even now. :D <333 I'll keep doing my best!! ///_///

And hey! That Mikey up there is plenty legit! XD <333 *hugs Alicia again* <333 Thank YOU for drawing him~~!!

*hovers mouse for alt text*
*facepalm* ... Really? XD

But oooooh, mysterious person! And page is soo bootiful and eerie in panel 3~
rufiangel 29th Jan 2015, 10:40 AM edit delete reply
Yes, really. XDD (It's important to keep track for me of the number of times I can get away with things like that ;D)

And thankyew <333 I did enjoy how the criers turned out :D hurray!!!
TheD-Wrek 29th Jan 2015, 3:23 AM edit delete reply
Omg... so creepy. O_O

But that redone version of the 1st page! Scientific! :D
rufiangel 29th Jan 2015, 10:41 AM edit delete reply
XDD Yes, I thought you'd appreciate the science!! <3 Glad you find it so! :D
HeSerpenty 29th Jan 2015, 3:26 AM edit delete reply
If you wanted to make those criers be as creepy as can be.. You sure succeeded!! AWWEsome design tho!
I GOTTA know who this person is! I wonder if... ooo what if it's one of Abel's traps? >___>

Also the redrawn page looks amazing!! I can't wait to see more! Such amazing improvement! <33
rufiangel 29th Jan 2015, 10:43 AM edit delete reply
Oh yayyy! :D I'm so glad to hear that~! I was a little worried initially with the crier design just because it was kind of bizarre XD; and I didn't want to bewilder readers too much. 'Creepy' is the best outcome and I'm glad I hit it :D <333

And thank you for such strong support on the redrawn page ;w;* I'm so glad to hear it looks better! (If you look at it content wise it's... the same XD so it really is just about aesthetic improvement... so I'm happy to hear it looks better ;w;* I'ma keep working hard to improve!)
Lukkai 29th Jan 2015, 5:47 AM edit delete reply
He is getting the hang of it. Still a bit slow on the uptake without help here and there, but he doesn't get in the way anymore and quickly reacts to orders.
Now some more experience and a number of successful fights and he'll start to heal and boost where needed before his comrades can even open their mouth.
Adventuring party, sports team, comedy duo (don't know how the last one snuck in), it's all about experience in what you do and training together to reach a point where you're one well oiled machine in motion.

Alt-text... So that's why cats sit that way? ;)

And I absolutely love Kylie's face in panel seven on the redrawn page.

Thank you for brightening up a day that held not so good news so far. This really helped.
rufiangel 29th Jan 2015, 10:48 AM edit delete reply
Yep! :) Cain is slowly getting there! It really is about experience sometimes!

Alt-text: yep, to prevent pervy readers from checking out their lacy thongs. XD (Not to say this is what Nemi has on but... well, I'll let readers imagine what they want XD;)

And hurray! Glad you like that panel XD I doubled the number of panels from the original strip for the redraw, and that was one of the 'missing' panels I put in. I had fun drawing it~! So it's good to hear it works XD <3

Also, so sorry to hear it's not been the best day for you so far D:

Cici gave me this the other day and it really made me happy so...
I hope your day only gets better Lukkai~! >_<)o
Lukkai 30th Jan 2015, 5:51 AM edit delete reply
Oh my gosh, that little Nemi is all kinds of awesome! :D

They probably went after that guy for giving the preservation murals 8 out of 10. ;-)

The deviantart link isn't working. (Funny how Tapastic has replaced Deviantart on my list of sites I hate to go to?)
rufiangel 29th Jan 2015, 10:29 PM edit delete reply
Oops, thanks for letting me know, fixed the link!

Hmm, feeling some animosity in general towards Tapastic. Maybe I shouldn't be mirroring there after all? ¬_¬ Well, we'll see how it goes! If you really don't like Tapastic you can visit the links to DA instead whenever I upload another redrawn page. :)
Headgamer 30th Jan 2015, 4:10 AM edit delete reply
Lol. I'm glad I'm not alone in my geniral dislike of Taptasic. XD

Had a bad experience with Tapastic a bit ago with the weird way they loaded images. Maybe they've fixed the problem, but it really put me off clicking links to it.

Hey, I've been wondering, what the heck does 'Ang' mean?
rufiangel 17th Feb 2015, 11:49 AM edit delete reply
Ahaha, it's a soundbite. :) Think of it as a kind of equivalent to 'Mmm'?

And here I thought Michael just had trouble pronouncing the initial "D"...

Just noticed the swirly eyes on Cain in the second-to-last panel. XD
rufiangel 17th Jul 2017, 10:22 AM edit delete reply
I'm happy you noticed them! XD He was overwhelmed @_@
