Kill Six Billion Demons

Postby Q99 » 2016-11-12 07:09pm

Kill Six Billion Demons is a fantasy webcomic.

It is very good! It takes place in a Hindu-inspired mythology, starring Allison, who somehow got a Key of Kings, the makers of gates between worlds, stuck in her forehead, and ended up in Throne, the capital of the multiverse, built upon 777,777 dead gods, and where she meets an angel, 52 White Chain, who initially thinks her a thief.



It's really fantastic stuff and, if you know the game Exalted? It's what Exalted wants to be.

We got any other KSBD readers here? ^^

I've read it. Is it still live?

It updated just this weekend in fact, typically two to three updates a week, depending on various factors.

There's even a physical book of the first couple of chapters if you prefer your comics in print media too.
This odyssey, this, exodus. Do we journey toward the promised land, or into the valley of the kings? Three decades ago I envisioned a new future for our species, and now that we are on the brink of realizing my dream, I feel only solitude, and regret. Has my entire life's work been a fool's crusade? Have I led my people into this desert, only to die?

Oh yes, and the latest update is incredible :) Cio's chronicling skills are impressive.

I just read through the entire thing and I really have to applaud the creativity and immense detail of all the drawings, the background and sense of depth created.

It's ... it's like a bastard child of 'The Waking Engine', 'Shiva 3000' and anything by 'China Mieville' ... it's beautiful.

Yeah, the last two pages are insane in terms of detail.

Looks like the girls have gone out shopping and someone is bitter that they got relegated to bag-carrying detail.
Also, what is with Cio's tail? Has it always been like that? I get the impression that it matches her expression of battlement somehow. Or that it may even be a sign of arousal?

She just got stabbed lots in her arms. She shouldn't be up, so they are surprised she's out (oh, hey, who's guarding the ship?). I don't get Cio's level of reaction though.

Also, where did they get money?

Cio's probably not poor.

Right, Allison healed all her horrible wounds!

I like the story (closest stories in terms of concept would probably be the China Mieville ones, which I also really like), just hope it gets finished by the author because these type of detailed drawings tend to drain those making them. I think it was GUNNM the manga that was so exquisitely drawn, the author had to stop and prematurely end it, because it was crazy hard. It also takes ages to complete such epic stories (just look at Berserk)...

I think Cio's also a bit embarrassed to have been caught out shopping.

Gunnm ended because Yukito Kishiro got really sick- when he recovered he returned to it and has made a lot more since (Gunnm: Mars Chronicles is currently ongoing).

It does help that KSBD has a planned arc and isn't intended to be all that long. Five parts, iirc.

There is always something to be said for straightforward labeling: "evil" and "bad man". The kids know what to look out for.
