SURPRISE! Sneaky Bonus Update!!!!

Now, rub his nose in it, Zap! >:(


  • Psithief

    “I have better haiā€¦ ”
    “Okay, NOW I’m not any better than them, but you did that.”

  • galthea

    Now, some healing powers/abilities would be handy…

  • “HAD better hair!”
    *Gunner starts to weep*

  • mirrim

    Yaaaay! Awesome surprise!—-Poor Efrem. Hope he’s not a goner! : (

  • LynzO

    My random urge to check the site is rewarded!
    Thank you!

  • your zap sense was tingling

  • Andrew W

    Hm, angry Zap. Reminds me a little of the top centre panel here http://www.zapcomic.com/2005/04/20090504/

    …and two pages later http://www.zapcomic.com/2005/04/20090525/

    Zap wasn’t always good, although it seems he wasn’t always bad either. What changed and when to make him bad, then what changed again to make him better? How much of the bad Zap remains, especially since his memory’s back?

    PS archives running slow? The comic image takes a while to come up although the rest of the page loads quickly.

  • Andrew W

    And skimming the archives, I rediscovered this:


  • //StarbornHeartxxYYEYYXxx
  • Darkoneko Hellsing

    Them, hm.

  • Psiberkiwi

    Now comes the grand reveal. Time to find out who ‘them’ is and how this all began.

    Uhh… right…??

  • Crestlinger

    Counter: he’s still alive.

  • not quite! But very soon, and there’s I think enough hints in the archives that you can pretty well guess that when Gunner and Zap say “them” they mean humans.

  • sorry the archives are a bit slow. The site has been getting some extra traffic lately from my tumblr. We’re just on the cusp of needing to upgrade hosting but with only like 7 months of comic pages left I just really want to try and hold out.

  • Woah. Angry winning Zap face is angry. <3


    I hope people enjoy their first re-read after the story is finished.

  • Thank you. I saw it!

  • He’s a little scary!

  • ShaedowDancer

    7 months!? Oh god. What am I going to do with the rest of the year?!

  • cyberwulf

    Damn zap you cut to the bone

  • Re-read ZAP! and then start reading my next comic?

  • safyrejet

    Check. Mate.

    Epic game of chess.

    Also Gunner totally screwed a mind control crown to your face. Gunner’s just not nice.

  • safyrejet

    I dunno, seems more cruel to do that to someone and leave them linger on suffering in pain. Of course we don’t really know yet what exactly “They” did.

  • ShaedowDancer

    I dunno… This new comic. How do I know it’d be any good? If only I had previous work of the author’s to compare it too…

    :D <3

  • Lenvoran

    “This is where I’d put my better hair… IF I HAD ANY.”

  • :P OH YOU!

  • Milknut

    This is where we find out Gunner’s tragic backstory that turns him into a rad antihero. Yaaaawn. :P

  • I don’t know how you get antihero out of genocidal psychopath. I must not be up with TV tropes.

  • Ori Klein

    Quite the facial expression/atmosphere transition from the first panel to the 4th and 5th.
    From commanding the situation with absolute authority, presence and confidence to, an obviously doomed to fail, appeal to morality/norms/values.

  • Ori Klein

    I think after all this long journey some forgot somewhat who/what Zap was/actually is.

  • Ori Klein

    Humans in particular or simply every other (inferior, as regarded by them) race than the powerful “ancients”.

  • Psiberkiwi

    Yes, but when you say ‘humans’, do you mean the GEF? Their precursors? Or some other group entirely? I don’t think it was made really clear just which group attacked the Lost Ones, just that someone did…

  • Rex

    I think Zap was likely just in an angry place after the GEF came, likely lost someone(s) close to him. After a time he got over it, Gunner didn’t, and the rift formed between them.

  • Rex

    I think the GEF in particular.

  • Busty Laroo

    Long time reader, first time posting.
    Dayumn I love me that top panel. :D

  • Ori Klein

    Good point.

  • Thanks so much! :3

  • sunphoenix

    Its like watching Asha’man from Wheel of Time..hehe! :)

  • stealth

    Well, if I’d had any internet I wold have thouroughly enjoyed the extra update. As it is, I am still enjoying the extra page.
    First panel Zap is intense, coolness. Hope Efram is okay, he seems pretty low right now. Blood loss? Shock? either one can potentialy kill. Hang in there Efram, you’ve been rescued! Time to get you bandaged up! And it’s so sweet how Reona is all worried about him, even after everythign that happened. Awwww.
    ‘Them’. Why do the persecuted always have say things to make the whole race fo their pursecutors ALL sound like trash when it was only a certain branch of them that did the persecuting? I mean, really. Not all fo them are like that, look at Reona! She isn’t. (sorry for the spellign errors)

  • stealth

    Hey, you got a point there. They do, don’t they? So then, does tht make Zap Rand and Gunner Taim?

  • Speedy Marsh

    Looks like Gunner crucified him.

  • Speedy Marsh

    Charge psychic defibrillator to 400! CLEAR! Ba-dump

  • Anonymous Person

    Are you alive? Pff, that’s like asking “Are you asleep?”

Vote for Zap! First Time Here?
