A black and white drawing with the title "DEATH TO THE WIZARD KINGS!"

DEATH TO THE WIZARD KINGS!

as recorded and depicted by MARIE ENGER.

You know how like, a long ass time ago our ancestors we were all “Huh, maybe stop spitting in the face of nature quite so much guys, the towns are floodin’ and also the water is all on fire now.” And then the Wizard Kings were all like “How about eat lightning.” And then our ancestors were all like “Woah, they sure kicked our asses, we super got the point, carry on. Do not mind us one bit.”

We probs should have minded...at least a *little* bit…? Maybe instead of spending generations forgetting how we had suffered at the magic hands of the Wizard Kings? ‘Cause while we were keeping our mouths shut and our eyes closed, Blot’Tor was teachin’ his crappy Wizard King frenemies how to siphon up our planet’s arcane core, ferment it in toxic geo-thermal vats AND IMBUE IT WITH LIFE.

They were out there making all sorts of weird little dudes (they called ‘em Vat-Spawn - ‘cause they were cooked up in vats instead of...instead of  bein’ born), havin’ fun, playin’ god with living creatures...Then they got a little bored. Then they started pickin’ fights. Then there was DRAMA. Then the very-public-breakup of the Wizard Kings, and after that? Bloodshed. None of us know who started it, none of us know how it’ll end, but what we DO know is…

The Wizard King Blot’Tor was the first of the Wizard Kings to reach into slag and rip consciousness to the surface. It was *his* abomination that started it all when they first staggered before their creator, fell to their knees, and broke into a thousand barbs…

Which Blot’Tor took up and stuck into the body of his *next* abomination...the one that put an end to it.

PIT PIT WHAT IS THIS - Fix this description

I’m not sure if anyone’s noticed, I’m not sure if anyone CARES, but there used to be two Vat Spawn up at the top of the Bongcano, slaughtering the endless waves of attackers coming at them from all directions, but suddenly there is only one. What happened to the other Vat Spawn?

Pit Pit once stood at the top of the Bongcano, blindly guarding whatever lay within by slaughtering endless waves of oncoming attackers. Then, in the comic anthology DAGGER DAGGER, they gained WIZARD VISION and made their way down into the Pit, witnessing all the beauty and horror of the Bongcano. Then they made their way up to the top of the Wizard King Blot’Tor’s tower. Then they killed him.

Now they don’t...they don’t know what they’re gonna do. What’s goin’ on?

DEATH TO THE WIZARD KINGS started its life in the comic anthology DAGGER DAGGER, which was kickstarted in 2020. It’s the comic I love working on the most, but the one I can’t ever seem to take the time I want for. People keep askin’ me “What Is Death To The Wizard Kings? What Is Death To The Wizard Kings?! What Is Death To The Wizard Kings?!!” And I keep sayin “DON’T WORRY ABOUT IT!”

But that was BEFORE I was trying to convince people to donate money to me so I could take the time I WANTED to draw this thing that I really, really love, instead of not even getting to take the time I needed.

Unlike Pit Pit, I know what comes next and I desperately wanna draw it, and then I wanna share it. Throw some digital dollars in the donation pit if you wanna, save ‘em if you can’t. Either way, check this out, look, look, look, dude…

Usually hate letting folks take a peek behind the sketchbook curtain, but NOT YOU. 

 

I'm real sorry there's not been too much new stuff. Like I said - the UNFORGIVING SCHEDULE.

Proto-Pit-Pit!

 

This was the first ever drawing I did of Pit Pit, the first Vat Spawn to graft a wizard’s eye to their body, witness the horrors of what the Wizard Kings wrought, and say “NOPE.” and then they said

 

DEATH TO THE WIZARD KINGS.
