Pool Lil'E, seriously his whole damn life he's been treated like crap. As a Devil Kid he got picked on for his horns and treated like crap. Now on two or three occasions just being happy with his Angel Hoodie first he got stomped for no reason, now just enjoying his glitter he gets picked on. He can't win, no matter who he tries to be happy being someone gives him shit for it and people wonder how he got to be such a dick pre-Lethe. Sad

That being said, while 'Fight Back' may not be the best message, 'Stand up for yourself' Might have been a better Motivational Phrase, even considering who it was, this was a nice comic. Even if it was protecting his son by means of threat of death Razz

Having a drone posse definitely helps the whole vindication thing.

Wish I'd had one.

i'd just like to add that i miss the old Lil E

of course, a character like that had nowhere to go, as far as character development goes, so he's the sort of character who would've been best used as an occasional aside or whatever, if anything. and if Lil E were still the Lil E of old today, he'd probably just be assimilated into the dinglebros with Slick and Squig.

but once upon a time, Lil E was an unrepentant asshole, and i kinda miss that.

Is fighting back bad? It is devil's advice...
How does that differ from "stand your ground"?

Did the devil invite them to pick on Lil'E to start with? Is the whole thing an attempt to lure Lil'E back to violence and hatred?

Maybe it's just some form of father/son thing. Even if he is the Devil, he still seem to (gasp) care a lot.

This has got to be the first time my initial reaction a comic about Lil'E was "Dammit!". I was hoping for some major Slick character development.

That being said this comic gave me some fairly strong feels, this being particularly impressive because lately my emotional range seems to have flattened. Lil'E's face in panels 9 onwards... and he's trying to stand up for himself after getting walked over by these two so many times ;_; Plus Dman actually helping him, even though he probably has an ulterior motive and still wants Lil'E to change I can't help but see it as a little sweet.

Ohh I really want to see where this is going but I also want to see Slick FINALLY get out of his self-defeating cycle. Argh please reduce the filler strips Tat >_<

My brain is full of ways this and other storylines could go.

It is also full of too much caffeine.

I dont think so, especially when dealing with bullies. A bully wont decide to leave you alone bacause you respond by doing nothing. They only bully you more.

I think Lil'E is Big D's one true "weakness". The one and only thing he actually cares about, even though he probably doesn't want to. Thats why he's been watching him all these years and stepping in to try and protect and toughen him up.

I wonder if he plans to retire someday and leave running hell to his son.

Does anyone else get the impression that D started caring about about Lil'E more after Lil'E dropped his "I'm so eeevil" act?

Sorry, what was that? The screen was blurry, I had a little something in my eye.

Uhm...can someone make individual images of the two Big D pannels? The goatee and they eye one? Damn, especially the eye, is brilliant... As far as the comic goes, yeah, I think Lil'e is D's soft spot...which makes me wonder how D would react if he saw Lilith (Lil'E's mum) again...
