The Webcomic Hunger Games: Day 1

“I am Caesar Flickerman,…”

“… and I’m Claudius Templesmith, …

“… your hosts for this year’s edition of the Hunger Games, featuring many of your favorite webcomic characters!”

“Marigold and Indefinite Hiatus already lost their lives during the carnage at the Cornucopia. Now let’s see how the other tributes make it through the first night and the second day.”

“The mood still seems to be good among our tributes, but I’m sure this will change in the foreseeable future.”

“Most certainly, Caesar.”

The Webcomic Hunger Games: Day 2

“The first alliances are forming and… Wait, what is this…? Could it be? … Yes, an arena event! Do you remember the last Games with an arena event this early in the competition, Claudius?”

“No, Caesar. This may almost be a new record.”

“What a bloodpath…!”

“Incredible, Caesar, simply incredible! I’ve lost count, but it certainly feels like we’ve already lost half of our tributes. I think a minute of silence is appropriate in this dark hour for so many of our spectators.”


The Webcomic Hunger Games: Fallen Tributes 2

“Whoa! More than half of the tributes are already dead, including our favorite Sette. If the Games keep going like that, they’ll go down in history as the shortest Games ever!”

“Now let’s not think of the worst, Claudius. I’m sure we’ll still see a lot of interesting fights during the rest of the week. So tune in tomorrow to watch our broadcast of the next day of this year’s Hunger Games!”

The Webcomic Hunger Games: The Reaping

“What do you think of this year’s reaping, Caesar?”

“This is certainly an interesting roundup with all these characters from some of the best webcomics, neatly arranged by their publication date. No matter the outcome, the webcomic world won’t recover for many years from this year’s edition of the Hunger Games!”

“Who are the favorites in your opinion?”

“Well, Claudius, one thing is clear. Lilith Caillean would mop the floor with all the other tributes if the use of magic were allowed; even Duane Adelier doesn’t seem to be a match for her. But since the use of magic is punishable by death, the question which needs to be answered rather is the following: ‘Who has the right attitude to brutally kill the other characters without even batting an eye?’ And the answer to that can only be: Sette Frummagem, representing District 9!”

“So Sette is your favorite?”

“Yes,… but you never know. A lot of things can happen in the arena. We’ve seen it year after year after year. Take Marigold Heavenly Nostrils – after her sex change – for example. Nobody who’s read Phoebe and her Unicorn would ever believe he could even harm a butterfly. But when it comes to the crunch, I have no doubt he’d brutally stab cute little Laurie to death with his super sharp horn. And with Indefinite Hiatus from District 6 we also have a sleeper agent we mustn’t overlook!”

“Do you have anybody else on your list?”

“I’m really excited to see how Rocky Rickaby and Frank, the mentally most deranged characters, will do in the arena. Maybe they’ll be the first to go, maybe they’ll be the last men standing.”

“Thank you very much for your assessment, Caesar. I say: ‘Let the Games begin, and may the odds be ever in your favor!’”

“Indefinite Hiatus surely did’t make it long, Caesar. But I believe our spectators are actually very happy about her timely death. I don’t think there’s a single soul out there in the districts who was rooting for her.”

“You’re totally right, Claudius. Marigold, on the other hand, will certainly be dearly missed by many spectators. Now, I hope you’re as excited about the days to come as we are. So tune in tomorrow to see the rest of the first day of this year’s Hunger Games!”

Updating only once next week

There’s been a medical emergency in Powree’s family which is one of the main reasons of our current troubles to meet our release dates. Therefore I decided to update the comic only once next week. I hope this measure will give her enough preparation time to be able to meet our usual update schedule of two pages a week again.

Wallpapers for patrons – Asking for ideas

I plan to commission other artists to draw high-quality artwork featuring characters from Gaia for our Patreon patrons (not necessarily in a 16:10 wallpaper format).

As a first step, I’d like to ask all of our patrons for suggestions what you would like to see. You may provide as many ideas as you like and also make the descriptions as detailed as you like. In fact, I’d even prefer detailed descriptions.
