    Link to first page.

    What do I say about this comic?

    Well, let's start with the basics. The artwork is gorgeous. The first chapter and the first few pages of the second are in black and white, but then shift to full color.

    After you see the first full color page, you will understand completely why this is the one web comic that I don't mind when it's late. The level of detail, the incredible designs for.....everything, it's just amazing.

    The mythology is weird, distinct, and unique. Despite two different expositions, numerous little snips of text in the comments section, in the notes, and on the bits of text that pop up when you scroll over pages, it remains new and fascinating to find out more about it.

    Plotwise, it took a while to get to the part where you have an idea of what the fuck is going on and the protagonist is still kinda getting there herself. That said, I didn't mind the plot taking its time because it let the author show more of this beautiful fucking setting.

    We've only just recently met the Big Bads of the series and even though they've only been on screen for less than half a dozen pages, I've already fallen in love with them.


    So yeah. Read this webcomic. It. Is. Awesome.

    Yup, lovingly bizarre and baroque. Nice inspiration for Malfeas in Exalted.

    Nifty. It kind of reminds me of Kagerou, except even more cracked.

    *edit*
    Nevermind, on re-reading I now remember that the MC of Kagerou is pretty messed up. Like extremely messed up in the head, as in having at least 3 different people(full people, not personalities) in his head is the least of his problems.

    So, couple things.

    The comic has updated a couple times since I last posted and is still awesome.

    A guy did an interview with Abaddon(the writer) and put up a list of some of the stuff that came up;

    And another bit;

    My god, I love everything about this comic.

    Another update, this one very quick compared to normal.

    As for my thoughts on this one, well, I'll just quote myself from elsewhere.


    Also, I'm wondering if I'm talking to myself on this thread....:(

    Meti is....certainly an interesting individual to hear the thoughts of.

    Currently though, I'm mostly wondering about Alison. She's looking a wee bit unhinged at the moment.

    I find it mildly amusing that the neighbour hasn't even noticed Ally’s third eye.
    Or the sword.

    I like KSBD, but I don't feel sufficiently comfortable not knowing what the fuck is going on. And I keep getting more questions.

    For example, Ally's skin color changes often, and I'm absolutely sure there's some symbolism, but I have no idea what it symbolizes. I am also assuming that she's got normal human skin since returning to the normal world, although she seems very red to me.

    she was red because of the devil growing in her, she is red now because she's freaking the fuck out.

    When her body comes apart and she's black with white circles, is that supposed to represent a form of soul?

    Yep.

    There's a sorta explanation for that in the interview with the writer that I posted up thread.

    Update.

    In which a secret is revealed!

    Also, we're starting to see some hints of the Key's influence on Allison.

    That or the fact that Alison might be dyed blonde going by the box on the counter.

    Yeah, that's what I was talking about.

    Going by the comments section, Alison also dyed her hair in the forum game that was basically the prototype of KSBD.

    Been a while since I posted here and several pages have gone up.

    So, recap.

    Alison's has a couple good friends and one friend that's a total bitch.

    She's dealing with the.....everything that's happened recently.

    Abbadon posted up the various entrees for the "Design Alison's new costume" contest. A lot of which were pretty badass.

    And the newest update is up and Alison is doing a thing! And whatever she's doing, it's making the Key light up.

    EDIT: Oh, the alt-text for today's strip is super fucking Exalted.

    There are times I feel like I'm the only one that posts in this thread.

    So, as you may or may not know, Abaddon is going through the whole comic, trimming speech, adding speech, adding new panels, adding whole new pages, and things along those lines.

    As a result, Alison has a bit more character than she did before, 82 is kind of a prick(more than he/she was before), etc.

    I'd suggest reading through the whole comic to get a full appreciation for the changes.

    Granted, I'd recommend rereading it anyways because it's awesome, but now you can do it for the new content.

    EDIT: Also, check out Abaddon's tumblr. He's got a ton of neat stuff there, like concept art for characters yet to appear, the names and titles of the Seven, and a new page about Devils

    Stuff has happened.

    The origins of Angels, Servants, and Humans have been revealed(or at least, the story about it was).

    To the surprise of no one, it involves Aesma being.......herself. I get the feeling that in KSBD's mythology, Aesma was the one who most frequently ran around doing stuff.

    Thanks in part to Abaddon's Tumblr, we have learned what the number portion of each Angel's name is. Effectively, it seems to be a death counter.

    We still know very little about the Angel's hierarchy, but we have recently met the guy at the top of White Chain's faction. 2 Michael, first of the Secondborn and apparently, the last of the Prime Angels.

    To the surprise of no one, he's something of a prick.

    Finally, we have recently seen what White Chain looks like under that armor.

    Early update!

    Poor White Chain, she really needs a hug.
