I will most likely be updating Mindfold every 10 days for a little while, rather than the once-a-week schedule that I have usually tried to maintain. I have a lot of freelance work that that will be keeping me very busy for the next month or so, and when the client says "dance," ya gotta dance!

If you like the comic, consider voting for Mindfold on topwebcomics

And just in case you feel like giving the comic a little bit of extra support, Mindfold is now on Patreon

Mindfold issues one and two are now available on comixology

If you have a few minutes to spare, maybe try checking out Tusk, my other comic here on Comic Fury. It's in the fantasy genre, but it's a bit more light-hearted and silly than Mindfold. Tusk updates about every 10 days.

Your clan dues are payable every Tuesday

At least they're tax-deductible
Oldarmourer 9th May 2021, 6:20 PM
Cheques made payable to the "Tore yer pyjamas" Clan will be dishonoured and interest added until properly paid ;)

Neither of the 2 in Panel_1 are visible in Panel_2...
...just how many additional 'extras' are surrounding them, off-camera?

I never got around to figuring out the exact population number of the snail-village, but I figure it's somewhere around 200. For the villagers, this is the first time in generations that foreigners have visited them, so they are naturally quite curious.

Yeah, their rules of engagement are rather cruel

It feels to me like a pretty empty "honor", in view of how 'helpful' they've been so-far.
I'm not saying they should've helped the short, bald stranger, but they ALSO lifted not-a-single-finger to defend one of their own, instead leaving all the peril to a pair of "outsiders".

This feels an awful lot like some Corporate boss's "Attaboy", defined as a bonus that's devoid of any financial component to back it up.
Honzinator 11th May 2021, 10:02 AM
No, they watch, and then engage in a cycle of revenge ... this is the way!
Oldarmourer 23rd May 2021, 2:05 PM
But not entirely worthless, at the usually accepted rate of exchange, ten "attaboy's" can be used to cancel out one "oh, shit!"
DMC_Run 29th May 2021, 12:53 PM
@[Oldarmourer]:
Really?
Last time I heard it, a single "Ahshit" (or "Awshit") would cancel-out even 1,000_"Attaboy's", & re-set you back to "Square_One".

Their view of warfare seems to be similar that seen in some mythological accounts, where each army in an engagement would send out their respective champions to engage in one-on-one combat, and then everybody would go home when the fight was decided.

They sure are an enthusiastic bunch. If anything, their expressions remind me of someone getting a whiff of a dead mouse. O.o

That species seems to express their full range of emotions through all the myriad variations of a sneer LOL

I love the colors and designs of this strip, especially panel one! Your world is so rich looking, and I really appreciate that.
fallopiancrusader 7th May 2021, 9:33 AM

Thanks! Designing the architecture and decorative arts of the world is one of my favorite parts of doing the comic.
Oldarmourer 8th May 2021, 11:29 AM
Interesting 'makeup', maybe they were too busy huffing spray paint to help out ? ;)

Actually, that's just their natural skin pigmentation. Their eyes are also quite distinct from human eyes.
Oldarmourer 9th May 2021, 11:34 AM
I remembered that five seconds after I posted it and wasn't logged in so couldn't change it, the facepalm mark is still red...
Still...it might explain some of their actions ;)

...and you don't even have the proportions of fashion illustrations XD
Guest 8th May 2021, 12:18 PM
Well done! I always wonder how just a couple of your panels are sufficient to tell an enormous amount of the story.

Seconded.

I hope the storytelling pace doesn't come across as too pithy. In a few instances, I have had to go back to some earlier pages in this webcomic and expand them into two pages, because I was trying to cram too much story into too few pages.
Honzinator 15th May 2021, 5:52 PM
You are now in the clan. If someone murders you, we will watch, mourn, and perhaps avenge you later. it's not as much of a deterrent as it seems to be, since status in most clans depends on one's number of kills.
fallopiancrusader 20th May 2021, 8:15 PM

At this point, Kit and Darra are just happy that the clan isn't killing them or tossing them back out into the desert

I'm all caught up!! I will stand over here in the corner as I await the next page :-)

Welcome back! I hope we will be seeing some new pages of "the Unclean" soon!
Oldarmourer 26th May 2021, 9:54 PM
That would be nice, it's an interesting story that's far from over.

Hey, are you OK? (Know you said you are busy doing commissions, but no update makes me worried that you're ill!) Just checking in on you ;)

Hi Liz,
Thanks for checking in! I'm still buried under commercial deadlines. That's a bad thing when it comes to working on my art, but it's a good thing when it comes to recovering from the income slump of 2020. I wish I could predict when I can get back to regular updates, but it's such a moving target when running my own business. I hope I can get back to it soon, because I miss working on my comics!
Liz 15th Jun 2021, 12:11 AM
Completely get it! My.OH is self employed and last year was .... well ;)
Got to pay those bills, eat ... before you can do fun stuff :)
Just so glad you are not ill!!!
:)
