.. the Invader embraces the landing around him .. unlike other Invaders preceding..Spaze had managed to survive the tanks..
..the guns. The guns that destroyed so many of his people by the hu-mans.
For whatever reason.. why 'Him' ..doen't matter now.
The creature before curled ..turned inward.. his head twitched more and more. Like a paint can machine had nabbed the Demon's skull..
AND JUST "F6CKIN' SHOOK" !!
Panic ..most manic..
another twitch and a twist..
And what to a slithery snake to appear ..
The instiller of dreads & mightiest of fears.
.. tornado like.. but with blood.. the creature's abstract form seemed to coil in a bizarre pain. The pulsating out of the 'Neck' of the skull was an elarging phallic bump.. but it grew outward as well.
.. The Oni continued to switch to and shake.. as if a phoenix rising from tarpits.. but sans wings.. 2 broad shoulders topped a slender chaotic frame of the same beast but newer 'cobra'-like features.
The Madnezz's tongue ticked at the air so violent. Smelling the massive infinite hydrants of blood gushing from the Invader's damaged structure.
Slithering.. his lower .. his 'CLAW' slammed the missile-ED landing..
** BOOM .. the three lower claws dug deep into the land. The dirt shook mad .. knocking the Alien to right side completely rocking his arm out of it's socket.. the appendage flew in the air. He grabbed it with his right as he fell.
Coming back to his feet.. out of no place.. a thorned pumpkin patch arose in the landscape. The star filled sky was ever increasing red. The angels slit their wrists .. the stars could no longer see black.
The Maddnezz and a universe of hell spoke.. ::
".. rose pedal filled bath water..
..to walk in the footsteps of dead men ..
..don't open your eyes.. "
..no connection ..there was no clarity.. as if the Demon was picking up radio signals in his new orm and adapting them as his next tongue.
..Spaze jumped on a gourd.. his face lowered to the ground .. the sparkle was gone in the eyes..and they were caving in. The pale flesh that surrounded his extraterrestrial bones .. stained and he bled fast and hard .. like Monty Python.
His eyes were leaking..
The Maddnezz continued in his chant..
"..the President Butchers.. give him a chance..laser,phazer crowd control,torcher,technology,..shoot them all..
killed in the blast.. the bomber.. the bomber..
give the Butchers a chance.. an effort an effort to butcher.. chance..
.. give it a chancsee chanssssssssss ..channnsssssssssssssssss..-- "
Madnezz's drone was heavy incessant .. and the simultaneous hiss.. paralyzed the ears so that they bleed too.
..Spaze slightly wished he had a tank ..
.. to shoot the Maddnezz.. but the Maddnezz was so fast. As if his snake-ish body was all meth.
The Oni continued on.. spinning in circles licking his claw with his tongue..sliding dizzy speed. All over.. the Maddnezz was a rave.
The tanks would be out matched.. Spaze stood suprisingly steadfast on the gourd ..as the land around him exploded.. this wasn't the warming planetoid. This was a darker area.. of confusion..of pain..
Of children's slaughter.
Mother's screaming ..
and fathers disappearing.. something was amiss..dogs screeching..yelping.. guns.. bombs..
..but Spaze was was too numb to be connected. Bleeding..
This land..this other-place.. this elsewhere was too much. How did he even get here ??
The Maddnezz's games had gone on to disparaging degrees before.. but this was a new level .. to much ..so fast ..the thorns grew and plunged at him.
Statue was Spaze.. still as he could be. The darkness on his brow grew even the blood was turning to near ink..
the mood was sinking in the sands of 'Nil-time'
.. his mother.. and the loves ..
..THE love.. and the sinking..
his hart was truly in peril.
.. The soft touch of something he may have know in another world..
..the tanks repelled that world.. according to his research.
The alien felt an aire of hatred against him in his travels.
That same hatred dominated this preposterous moment.
There was atouch he missed ..some sense of support for him. Something or someone that held his heart. Something or someone that held his hand.
..now he was clutching his own dismembered arm ..
He wished he had some support right now. This game, the 'Dance' was getting ugly. This 'never-war'.
But there was no support for him at this moment.
It was a 'lone faceoff'.
Perhaps someday ..love will reappear. There was no chance for 'Perhaps' right now.. just "THIS ERRATIC MOMENT".
The moment was growing weary.
The Maddnezz danced in slide.. he withdrew his entire torso and the lower appendages into the Pinkish claw. The Claw spun like the great Turtle and the U.F.O. The Claw spun like the dizzy fireworks in the hu-man's holidays. The pain was overwhelming.
This was how the existence would end ?? The Maddnezz had spun out of sight so quickly.. and flew faster than the war ships could keep up with him.. he was here,there,everywhere..
The Maddnezz was everywhere.
Spaze stood still as Stone Henge on the gourd. Confusion weigh too heavy at this.. he almost collapsed.
Maddnezz appeared from a nearby explosion.. strangely slithering while his lower claw rattled as if kettle drum silos ..he tentacles scuttled tho' like the spidery tsuchigumo beasts of old.
He muttered in ramifications of thunder and asteroids..::" The Butcher is the decision maker.. vote of no confidence, your mother has left you your heart is forever in ruin ..you are not real ..i am the only one who loves you.. the Butcher will destroy their minds..
the Christ will defeat their hopes.. the Butchers.. the Butcher.. the Warming sphere .. is out encompass you in it's jaws.. you see my might .. you see your death ..you can never die you can never be reborn ..you are not here.. we are. i Am .. this shall continue. disciplinary action.. 5 years in prison.
Mutilation .. mutilation .. remains .. the missiles.. Their guns,their bombs,their guns,their songs, Wallstreet.. Wallstreessssssssststsssssssssssssssssss ssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss.. - - - "
The Demon towered over Spaze. Unanticipatedly lowering his skull.. ticking his tongue ..eye level to the Invader..
.. Spaze ..holding his severed arm firmly in his left ..like a loose cannon.. he struck the Skull with a back swipe. As if fending of a perverted gawker.
The Demon was startled but hardly phased.. pushed back about a foot. He vibrated..and twitched his head.. his spinning eyes suddenly gained a rare focus. He must have been phased a bit after all.
There was a short moment of understanding of the 'nil-time' ..of where "THEY" were and what was happening. The Maddnezz felt very powerful..and then his words..
" It has been said that when it starts it is the end ..yet is only where it starts. This is the paradox you are. I shall destroy you .. but it is too soon.
Live in forever fear. The snake has yet to bite. The venom has yet to invade your blood stream. So much comes for you.. and this planet seems to be on it's last legs.
..this is to my advantage.
You are unloved. I am always here. Upon my next homecoming..
..remeber this pain. Your heart is ignited. Salutation" ..
Sarcastic for a second..then The Oni's skull tilted back..the entire torso of the creature tilted. He smashed his horns into the ground ..the dirt parted like Moses and the red waters. The whole he created became his means of escape.. and he slithered into the hole and it gobbled up what was left of the moment.
Alone and beeding ..weak ..
..eyes were still leaking..
..bleak.. the darkness overcame the Invader.. the red sky drew it's curtain and the angel's stopped dripping blood.
No hope ..
..his heart exploded..
- - - -- -- **
Spaze woke in a frosty green pumpkin field.. a red saucer lowered from the sky toward his form. The alien wobbly stood up on the dead crops.
To look down upon them in the daylight one would see large; strange formations in the crop's patterns. But it was night..didn't matter. He sloppily attached his arm back to to the right shoulder ..he was soaked in blood. The sky was star filled and beautiful. The moon show full..and the skull in the moon seemed to smile for once.
Spaze looked up only briefly to enjoy the frosted breeze. But now he was just cold.. the meadow was soaking in the last of moonlight. He could see his short spurts of breath. Glowing brushes of fog. Spaze collapsed onto the saucer. The Saucer lifted him away to elsewhere.
..what had happened was beyond understanding. He was tho' ..getting used to this.
Spaze retreated into the cold. The Saucer flickered with the battle damaged body on top and in a flash was gone.
What is to become of all of 'This' .. ?? 'This-where' ..elsewhere.. 'That-where'.. the land of Paradox .. ??
The Maddnezz ??
This particular Invader shall return..
Epilogue :: ..by morning ..in the cold skies the birds could see things far below.
David, are you going to comic con this year? I've already got tickets for 3 days. But you had to get them sooner. I missed getting tickets for 4 days. I like this. The blue on the side looks like skeletor from He-Man!
I love this series ! Mostly because of the accompanying story. But these pictures are richer than many. The colors are captivating. I am drawn into the pictures by the depth of them.
I think it would be AWESOME, if you could somehow find a way to print these, mount them for display along with your story, perhaps even making more images and breaking up the story to fit...then find a gallery. Would be so fun to walk around a room and just see it all together.
