I hope it is evident that the nose bleed is to illustrate keeping Iron Maiden together took tremendous effort for Silencio. Hmmm… More on this after I hit the hay! (thank you for your patience… An exploded diagram is so fun to draw! But I fought it a bit and it consumed the day. Ah well. I had fun with it. This too is something I knew I had to put in the story from the get go).
That was a lot of drawing wow! :O
You probably should have gone with eye bleed or something. You ARE aware of the meaning of nosebleeds in animanga culture, aren’t you?
“Sexploded Diagram” indeed!
ooooooh, this move should be EPIC!!! Especially as the album it’s named after is epic. So an epic album and a Epic comic with an Epic fight Scene should be the Eptimome of Epicness!!!!!! (i like the word “epic” could you guess?) xD
…. Grrrrh… Motherfucker! Somehow yoou managed to redeem last page with pure unspoiled awesomeness! Raven you are no longer human, you are more you are a GOD amongs men. I salute thee and you shall be the state religion when my rain of zombific terror rains down upon the world and when those puny cattle that call themselves human bow before Rosetta and me!
Someboddy: Bleeding noses in animanga are something that should be destroyed on sight. With nuclear warfare precision. Not only it doesn’t make any sense, it looks ridiculous.
Am I the only person who caught Iron Maiden:Final Frontier?
Oh grumpy caught it too.
Here’s a question… is Silencio doing more than just “re-assembling” her? Because I would think that he’d need to. Is he somehow mending the parts of her that are actually deformed?
Here’s the thing. Sometimes in fiction you see these scenarios where something is blown apart and then some fabulous telekinetic force draws all the pieces back together. It happened to the TARDIS once or twice. But if something’s blown apart, shouldn’t there be actual repairs that need to be done? It’d be incredibly convenient if something that complex were exploded in just such a way as to simply divide the components in neat, whole pieces. I would expect there to be warped metal and busted hinges and screws stripped and cracked in half from being forcibly ejected from their holes and so forth. As I understand it, guns can be fairly fragile devices. You can mess one up just from snapping the cylinder in too much. Or has the magic nature of the Iron Maiden made her parts invulnerable? In which case… how did they become separated? If they can’t be broken, how did she come undone? Metal isn’t exactly flexible. Even if she was blowed up from the inside, her parts would have to be warped in the process of separating or not separate at all. Am I wrong? Hey, I might be. I don’t know what I’m talking about, enlighten me.
Then again, metal shouldn’t have an “o” face and give birth, either…
@Random Oh yes! It was horrendous. Hand CRAMPINGLY horrendous! (but worth it right?)
@Someboddy You know… it never occured to me! Silencio DID pretty much just watch a weaponized genital dual. Maybe he’s a kinkier fucker than we thought (he’s not-I assure you!)
@Adam I don’t know what’s wrong with me… I love technical drawings. I think “what human thinks this way?”. Hard to believe they were ever done before illustrator. There’s a zen garden feeling when you draw one.
@Grumpy & Chaosfission Believe it or not this next attack has been planned out before I ever named it! As was the gun girl. Then I was suddenly scrambling for a name for her and decided Iron maiden was pretty fitting (torture device, descriptive of character, musical reference). Then I said “Say! I wonder if that band has any cool album names or songs I can reference”. They have LOTS! But the fucking ice cream on my sunday was finding out they JUST released the PERFECT name!! Sometimes.. these things fall in your lap. It’s like the planets align.
@Fat Badger I only had rodney shove his rocket in her socket to lead up to this scene! (again in my head these things feel logical)
@Joe England ha ha. Man I admit… under the hood of this reality hums the engine of my own design, powered by sloppy logic. I constantly sacrifice this or that for the sake of awesomeness (although…hopefully never at the expense of story). I guess I’m not the only one to employ it (dr who too? I never knew!). You like me must be plagued with these thoughts too as you create. The whole time I was drawing I was like “I want an exploded diagram … literally!!! Then it just comes back together! YEAH!”… Then I was like…”The bits wouldn’t just be perfect though.. better do some parts in off set places”… Then I was like “Hey! I…I didn’t draw any mechanized innards!”.. but at that place I was married to the whole rib coils pointing towards the gun cylinder spine.
Er… that is to say.. I am always aware I’m shitting all over reality and probably should be hauled off by the Physics Police.. but hopefully it’s entertaining enough to be forgiven.
You forgot one thing Raven!!! when magic is used … physics is thrown out of the window. ( her insides could be made of pure energy … or laffy taffy same diff.)
@ChaosFission No you were not the only to notice… I was just so awestruck at how the scene changed from vulgar sillyness to pure awesomeness without comparison. Hmmmh if I remember correctly Final Frontier is from Dance of The Dead right? Raven you gotta name a move after that too! I immagine a combination of gunlady and Silencio’s bullet/headstone technicue where he litteraly dances with her and bullets flie all over! Would be awesome.
But NO BREAKDANCEING! xP
This is the part where Iron Maiden turns into the starship Enterprise, right?
Iron Maiden is ready for some Multiple Wargasms?
Since when are we worried about logic? I’m just grateful that the story is cohesive with all the wackiness. Where else will you find wimps dressed up in pink tights, werewolf robots, a legion of sex dolls and half-fairy identity thief butchers? This is Raven’s muthafuckin’ Dojo, fools. You gotta love it.
So yeah…physics be damned and bring on the brawls.
@Fat badger, Final Frontier is Maidens latest album (and there’s a song called it Final Frontier on it). Dance of death is a few albums before. (sorry im a metal nerd)
also (pun alert) She can be my Powerslave!!!
Oh right sorry… Only heard Final Frontier once and I gotta admit it’s got a special sound that made me think of songs like “Rainmaker, Pachendale and such” ooor mayhaps a little like “Ghost Navigator or Brave New World” from the album “Brave New World” -cough- Seems I gotta go steal the new album soon… -.-’ Can’t have it on my back that I have so much Iron Maiden but not the newest one.
More than enough, Raven!
Now I remeber what it reminded me of! “New Frontier” from “Dance of the Dead”!
I think the physics (on THIS page) can be reasonably defended. No need for “it’s just a comic” hand-waving!
1) Gun parts are NECESSARILY manufactured to withstand a certain amount of heat and pressure. After all, gunpowder is set off inside them all the time.
2) Iron Maiden is not one solid object. It’s a collection of individual gun components, held together (and rearranged at will) by magic.
So: As long as the magic “let go” of the individual gun pieces during the explosion, the force of the blast would just spread the pieces out, toss them around. They wouldn’t be significantly deformed because a) they’re built to take it, and b) they didn’t resist, they just went with the blast.
