The Adventures of Hercule Cubbage: Chapter 6; It's finally here

I'm not shitting you. It really is here. And, ironically enough, a day later than I intended - I've been working my ass off to get this done in time for September 1st. It's been September 2nd for about 2 hours in my timezone.

But never mind that. To mark my tenth anniversary as a comic maker and 5 years of Hercule Cubbage, I very proudly present the long-awaited next chapter in the Hercule Cubbage saga. Enjoy.

(Oh, I recommend you re-read the previous chapters first. Even though it's been 3 years since the last chapter, it's very much a continuation. And I was in too much of a hurry to post to make a "previously on" thing, sorry!)

I'm not going to dare suggest this will ever be good enough to justify three years of waiting, but I do hope you enjoyed it! Please leave a reply and feel free to spread the word: Hercule Cubbage has finally returned!

In other news, Half-Life 3 confirmed...oh, wait. Saw it in my RSS feed and thought "Hang on, it's not April 1st..."

Absolutely bloody fantastic!

Thank you all (except ESToomere, fuck you Erik). It really felt great to finally finish this after a nearly-three-year hiatus. Of course, still three more chapters to go before it's really done, but we'll get there sooner or later! I believe that now. If Chapter 6 came out after so long, then surely I can pull off 7, 8 and 9.

I'm gonna try to get some attention to this now but clearly Reddit won't be the place, it's basically deserted. Maybe do some PR like I did at work, see if it sticks. Wish me luck!

Just finished reading it a second time, and I think it's noteworthy just how much your editing has evolved since the series began. It's truly impressive. In particular I'm paying attention to the depth-of-field, light rays, and particle effects -- all of which blend seamlessly together. The only exception is the double focus plane in the crowd shot with Lucy and Kyle -- not exactly a glaring flaw, but it was enough to break the immersion for me. Overall, however, stellar editing. Your best yet, dare I say.

Story wise, it's excellent to see the relationship between Hercule and Lucy evolving. As I mentioned over Steam, the love triangle caught my attention immediately and held it throughout the chapter. I'm interested to see where you go with Kyle's character -- Just take care not too make him too much of an A-hole, lest he come off as one-dimensional. Right now he seems kind of like a sadist, the way he relishes killing those CPs, and I find that disturbing (in a good way). Looking forward to watching his character develop!

Great job as always, Mythos. :)
