I updated the copyright notice and it didn’t even take me several months this time!!
Ben feels awake?
No. Ben feels so *alive*. It’s the thrill and the danger.
Using the word “awake” in this context makes sense as well. I interpret it as Ben saying he feels much more aware of his surroundings, and possibly more energetic, all due to the adrenaline rush he’s getting from being in a dangerous situation. It’s possible normal everyday life feels much too menial to Ben.
So really, awake and alive would both make sense for Ben to say here, but Cube chose to use awake because it has a different meaning to just saying he feels alive.
Once you’ve had a full adrenaline rush going around without it feels like you’re asleep.
i usually feel like that anyway.
i usually feel “asleep” on occasion i become “awake” but i ussually have to get 16/24 hours of literal sleep. am i the one dreaming of being a dragon or is the dragon dreaming of being me?
drat put two “s”‘s in usually by mistake -_- time for me to goto bed…
Also, he’s probably out past his bedtime.
But at the same time, that can get dangerous, right? You don’t want to start throwing yourself into truly dangerous situations all the time /just/ to feel ‘awake’. It can become an addiction and down that road leads bad stuff.
So, hopefully Ben can keep a grip on this! We need him as the voice of reason, haha.
The strong scent of danger will do that…
Kiwi Blitz always makes me smile.
So is Ben finally coming to realize why Steffi enjoys doing this?
Perhaps. And if so, we might get to see victory snogging at the end of this fight. Because a crime fighting couple should always kiss while things explode behind them.
Pretty much, yeah. They’re gonna make an even greater team. Evil beware…
/cue Falling from Cloud Nine
Aaaah, yes, a whole page of just Ben. :’D good job!
If Steffi is going by “Blitz”, then Benzene can go with “Krieg” for his vigilante name.
His name’s Donnert. It was mentioned before when he was meeting Cho.
Well Dunder which the poem does get Anglocized to Donner.
Ben is Dunder aka Thunder to Steffi’s Blitz aka Lightning
lol, i said that once.
Ah, the return of Gear.
The mentioning of Gear*
I assume heinrich gave him power armour too under there, not just a fancy suit…
or at least composite armour thick enough to resist bullets
The tie is going to be the hardest thing to figure out what it does. The coat is obviously like the cape we saw earlier. He obviously has a holster for the gun somewhere. The boots scream he’s got at least partial powered armor on also due to the way he’s running in it. Probably purely the lower leg so he can…
Pounce like a wolf on his target.
“This entire situation is so ridiculous.”
AND THEN BEN AWAKES FROM HIS COMA
we need more awesome weapons, an EMP sword isn’t enough, how about a sonic grenade?
Just one, though.
Welcome to your destiny, Benzene.
Ben’s gotten a taste of heroing. And he likes it!
Ben’s outfit reminds me of Tegami Bachi.
Put that near the top of the “To Do List”: teach Blitz how to use a sword without cutting her own butt off
You do not learn kendo with an emp sword wearing powered armor. And she’s talking instead of fighting which says to me the armor has sensors designed to defend the wearer from all attacks at maximum ability of the outfit. 42 probably added it in. Which means Blitz isn’t actually fighting but thinking of comeback lines.
Good god… Papi DOES care about his daughter’s protection. He’s just been oblivious to the now because he’s always been looking at the future.
I disagree. Blitz has been demonstrably mouthy while fighting; she would make Spiderman proud. The reasons kind of differ, though.
Spiderman mouths off to distract himself from how pants-wettingly terrified he is that people with superpowers or powered armor or whatever else are trying to kill him and have the very real capability to do so.
Blitz? She’s just naturally talkative.
I think she’s just naturally talented at fighting even if she hasn’t practiced much, and her muscle memory responds so quickly she doesn’t really think about defending herself. That, plus adrenaline-powered multitasking abilities allows her to fight and banter at the same time.
Long story short, she’s just trying to be cool, if you ask me.
Benny was the only one talking about Kendo, and that is as much to with actual sword-fighting as Olympic-grade fencing (note: said sword-fighting)
But if she’s wearing powered armor, wouldn’t an EMP sword be dangerous if she didn’t know how to use it? She could disable the very thing protecting her.
Depends on if the EMPSword only disables what it cuts, or whatever Benny-boy is wearing would be disabled as well (and remember where/how they acquired the EMPSword in the first place)
The emp sword doesn’t disable what it cuts. It disables what it is tapped against while being held. 42 demonstrated it vs Blitz. Her leg went “Nope” remember?
I feel there’s going to be another arc with Gear, and this time it’s Ben she comes after for being “interesting” instead of Steffi.
Although, armed with an EMP Katana, I think Ben stands an even better chance against her next time around.
Cocked Eyebrow Ben is the best auto-assigned avatar. I am happy
Cube – In your recent FAQ on tumblr you mention where you’re living now in Japan. I was curious so I looked it up on Wikipedia. The article is actually very informative and may have information that interests you: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kurihara,_Miyagi
After months of ‘just not getting to it’ I’m glad to see the site is still running smooth.
When’s the next set its killing me!
Although dammit we furries aren’t all evil D:
She may feel so awake, but I’m getting sleepy just waiting for the next one.
ben is a dude…
See how long it’s been? I’m already starting to lose track of who’s who.
Cube? Where are you?
Cube is in Japan!
She has been there quite a while and busy. She’s long since announced that KB is on semi-hiatus, updated “whenever [she] can finish a page.” I miss having regular KB, too, but hey sometimes life happens.
Cube is in a better place, now… A place that isn’t… Delaware.
Fool! Once you enter Delaware, it only lets you leave if it wants you to.
Was Cube on Flight MH370?
Did we lose a Cube?
Usually when a comic goes inactive this long I remove them from my bookmark list that I check each week but dammit, this one is too good to give up on. Come back to us Cube!

Eeee! Just got my commission of Reed by Der-Shing Helmer!
Der-Shing’s work is always a huge inspiration, and I love how she drew my most Lawful Good of characters <3
Kiwi Blitz updates again this Friday! It’s good to be back!
