GND179- Monster Hunters, Part I - The Dresden File by Pika-la-Cynique GND179- Monster Hunters, Part I - The Dresden File by Pika-la-Cynique
Patching continuity issues with 'Roommates' ( [link] )


Anyone unfamiliar with Harry [Blackstone Copperfield] Dresden - good golly goodness, is that a search bar top right corner of your browser?
In a nutshell of awesome - Chicago Police's occult consultant, wizard private investigator, unhappy faery godson, snarky genre-savvy narrator of getting his ass handed to him by serious Big Bads, walking techbane, tendency to apply massive fireballs to tricky situations. Works with Bob, a very knowledgeable, lecherous spirit housed in a skull.
(Great book series, and one so-so TV show.)

He is not letting go of his staff because the girls' apartment kinda reeks, fig'ratively speaking, of Fae magic and it's making him a tad nervous. [Assume this is Books 1-5-ish power levels Dresden...]

He also crosses over nicely with Labyfic. Proof in the pudding: [link]

(If you don't get the Marsha joke, then obviously you have yet to see 'Spaced'. Why is that?)


And you can shush your crazy requests, I have my laundry list of cameos to come for this arc of Monster Hunter interviews. :)

Akshully Jareth and Erik live below the girls, though readers often seem to assume otherwise...? James and Javert, also on the third floor, but the appartments don't quite map put identically from floor to floor, obviously (because Rule of Funny > logical physics ).

Maaaaybe one day it'll tickle my fancy. Right now, drawing a map sounds like a lot of work, and possibly something that could bite me in the plots later.

Given how matter-of-factly Sarah instructs the bogging, I'm thinking that she's at least thought about it before. Even if this is her first "official" bogging. She's waaaaaaaaaaay to comfortable with taking such action for this to be an unrehearsed decision. Possibly she has been considering it as a solution to various things along the way, and now was just the perfect opportunity.

:D

It may be her first "sentient creature"-bogging, but I rather suspect she's found that command to be a time-saving alternative to making a trip to the dump on clean-out days.

If only, Bob, if only little things like characterization didn't get in the way. Otherwise, we could have that OT3 solution to the whole Erik/Christine/Raoul thing.

Hey, to quote the fandom/series: 'The Buildings on fire and it's not my fault.'

That sort of stuff just happens to/around Harry, he's not always the cause. Although maybe that tendency is enough for both him and potential employers to rethink hiring him for a case in His Own Apartment Building (not that the building hasn't seen worse, but getting someone with a better track record when it comes to property destruction in their vicinity isn't a bad idea).

i have read the dresden files , (i am on book six at the moment, blood rites.) and i don't think you are giving a fair portrail of harrys intelligens. yes, he has solved some of alot of his problems by fireball to the face, and he has stated him self that he not very good at delicate spellcasting, he is more a brurte force kinda guy, but he has also shown the he can outwit any supernaturale creatue the world has thrown at him. everything from mad wizards, to rampaging werewolves to angry fallen angels.

now i don't think this page s bad in any sense. i like you drawing style, and bob is hillarious, and i also very much like you redition of harry dresden, chicagos only and most unlucky wizard. i just thing fair is do, where fiar is do.

I love this. Read it all the time and love your drawings. You mentiond The Pale Man. There's a podcast called The Byron Chronicles by Darker Projects. He happens to be brittish, immortal, and sarcastic and they call him The Pale Man of Portland all the time. Its awesome, anyway. Is that you you are mentioning here?

As soon as you said 'Leather trench coats' in the last comic, I fanatically hoped aloud 'HARRY DRESDEN PLEASE?'
And thus was my wish delivered~ <3

It is easy enough to find out if you read the books. Its not like I said the story line or anything... its mentioned in the book description. *shrug* So its not spoiling.

Something to look forward to. *wink* I refuse to read more and only read a few books because my local library doesn't have that many. So, in a lot of ways, you are ahead of me. I love Harry's sense of humor though.
