*Nag* Oh...my...god...OPPENHEIMER!!!

No, I'm just connecting Oppenheimer's quote with the Lich being Nuclear and all.

*Nag* Technically, we actually don't know if the Lich was nuclear: the waste that was created by the Mushroom Bomb might've been purely magical in nature.

OMG Now I recognize that final line that the Lich says! It was originally said by J. Robert Oppenheimer, a theoretical physicist who said that after the detonation of a nuclear bomb, and with The Lich basically being a living, walking nuclear monstrosity, this line really fits! Great job, illeity!

i think the lich was created bye the toxic nuke destroying southern California "los angeles city" was where the blast was strongest but the lich was created from the toxic waste causing horrible effects to the guy causing him to mutate and create the lich soon after all he wanted was to destroy all humanity so created the enchiridion. the enchiridion is the lichi's spell book that he uses with the multiverse and different spells but the lich uses spells like fire blasts and fire balls. he gets his power from toxic waste and drains the toxic waste's power and uses it for his powers and spells. the lich can posses anything that lives(even a fly) he has a trail of death because he destroys everything that lives. thats all for now

Well, the Enchiridion is gone now and the Lich trapped in another place :)

Well that is a good theory but just to make it clear the Enchiridion is much older  than the lich because simon found it first!

This is REALLY good. From the show it's often hard to appreciate that Billy was once a hero in his own right.

I wonder, I'm an admin on a random Adventure Time fan page on Facebook (www.facebook.com/adventuretime…, and I would LOVE to feature some of your work in some of our posts (giving full credit of course) and link to your page on DeviantArt.

Would that be okay with you?

It's not that large of a page (about 40k followers) in case that is relevant.

I'm always up for people sharing my stuff :) Thank you!
I put up all my comics in this folder: illeity.deviantart.com/gallery…

Though I would recommend following my Tumblr as I post stuff there that I can't post anywhere without losing the context they were in.

Gah... Okay. I'll join Tumblr. For you.

Thanks, by the way. This comic in particular is probably my favorite (of the one's I've seen so far). I also really loved the Simon and Marcy epilogue and the Sons of Mars prologue :).
But this one was great. I've never heard/seen Oppenheimer's quote used as a response to the question "Who are you?" I thought that was incredibly clever :P.

Heh :) In fact, you don't even have to join. If you have an RSS feed reader you can just use that to keep updated when I post new stuff.

And thanks! This work will probably remain as my darkest yet :) I love a good villain!
