    Oh sweet glory, BEN has the spirit sight. This is going to be fuuuuun.

  • Fuzzleton

    I think I like Envy the best of all of the arcs so far, I just love where this is going.

    No pressure!

  • ~OrangeMellow~

    I so hope mal ends up with it again

    • Foehn

      Same here! I want to know what Mal has that caused that, too…

    • Eagle0600

      Me too. I don’t want to say goodbye to “the one who sees.”

  • I am so excited and also so frustrated because BEN HAS THE SPIRIT VISION I WAS RIGHT BUT DOGGONIT GOTTA WAIT TIL MONDAY TO SEE IT

    Can I just say that I DO kind of maybe a little have hope for Voss? I mean, he’s showing some genuine uncertainty in this scene. I think that Wolf being genuinely happy for him and him beginning to realize that he can’t really ‘win’ may be getting to him. The fact that he’s VERY CLEARLY relieved that he doesn’t need to off these guys is another ray of hope. YOU CAN STILL FIND SOME REDEMPTION DUDE I BELIEVE IN YOU

    • Qwefg Lockheart

      Redemption works easier when you full of special magic tricks and techniques. I can see mercy and him not being as much of a jerk as he used, but I would be the first to admit I would fight tooth and nail to keep all the tricks and abilities I had taken/stolen for all of those years even if I couldn’t collect anymore as I am sure that he may be a nice guy, but I highly doubt he will simply give up his powers if they disappear when the Envy Fox is sealed/banished.

  • Pam

    Was that… a shred of conscience from Voss?

    • AJ

      I’m pretty sure it was just him being useless again.

      • Qwefg Lockheart

        He didn’t have many skills before. Now that he has them he enjoys his new rich life and he does have some descent management skills as he made a descent spirit hunter group… or he stole that from someone else. The bigger questions are if spirit sight in a side effect then what is the main curse/thing and now that he finally has the spirit sight removed from him will he want it back? Also what does his “spirit” look like?

  • Winger

    You are an unkind individual.

    Curious to hear the sight (presumably) described as a “side effect”. It’s already been suggested there’s a greater purpose / span of abilities to Mal’s little knack, but it’s nice to have the confirmation.

  • Natalie

    BEN TACKLES HIM SO DRAMATICALLY AND THEN JUST KIND OF GENTLY SLUMPS TO THE FLOOR!!! I’M GRINNING THAT MUST HAVE LOOKED REALLY FUNNY TO VOSS! Anyway, yes, I am super excited to see where this plot goes

  • Nin

    Suuuure, Voss. Sure you can. You have such an excellent track record.

    Gah, can’t wait for Monday!

    • Monday? This is where the author shifts the plot back to Herr Voss and Captain Barber and we have to wait weeks to find out what happens to Mr Thackeray and Mr O’Malley.

      • Disloyal Subject

        I hope so!

  • A side effect of something that Envy can’t steal . . . implying that whatever “it” is, Mal still has “it” even if he doesn’t know what “it” is or how to utilize “it” and is likely currently without the side effect of the sight . . . perhaps, lacking the distraction of the sight, he’ll be forced to explore other aspects of whatever “it” is . . .

    • =Tamar

      We already observed that Mal could not only see but hear malforms. Did he lose all of it, or can he still hear them?

    • Euodiachloris

      I think it’s more a case of “yionk from you, sucker!… download… oh, cannot install due to OS or hardware issues… delete download, instead”. -_-

      Except… Ben got most (if not all) of the relevant packages, this time: no delete from reality for you, Envy. ;)

    • Analt

      Prediction- Ben has Spirit vision, catches a glimpse of Mal’s soul and then spend the rest of the incident deliberately covering his eyes.

      turns out Mal has some kind of weird soul which is why he can see malforms. An eldritch soul possibly?

      • Cooper

        Mal is the Chosen Undead confirmed.

  • bluefox

    So, since in previous chapters some of the main cast has had to deal with their own issues with the sin of the chapter does anyone else think that might be what is going to happen with Mal and Ben? Mal has probably been envious of others for not having the sight, but now he doesn’t have it. And depending on how long he has been aware of having it it might be really weird for him not to have it. Maybe finding that not having the spirit sight is worse then he thought it would be. And Ben might have been slightly envious of Mal’s spirit sight since he could see the spirits. Ben has probably thought on numerous occasions that his job would be so much easier if he could see spirits. Only if he has it, he will found out exactly what kind of burdened it really is. So a sort of stepping into the other one’s shoes. Maybe.

    • Del

      Just looking at wizards gave Mal a headache.

      The spirit-sight within a wizard might be debilitating or unpredictable.

      I can imagine Mal taking the burden back as a loving favor for Ben. It is Mal’s curse to carry it.

  • Neoriceisgood

    Voss’s sort of insecure attitude is interesting.
    Really liking the direction this chapter is taking.

  • Michael Brewer

    I just hope he stole knot tying ability and insomnia from some people, or this is gonna go just like his last attempt at guard duty.

  • Sessine

    “Oh, don’t simper.” I imagine Envy meant WHimper. In that panel Voss is not simpering — he’d never simper! I think his face would fall off if he tried. https://www.google.ca/#q=simper Smirk, yes. We’ve seen him smirk. https://www.google.ca/#q=smirk But simper? No way!

  • Silly Zealot

    That was a close call! Imagine if everyone was able to see envy: England is the land of the fox hunt.

  • awhorl

    Voss SOOO wants to get rid of the spirit fox on his back. The deal was to trade the magic eyeball for a trip to Widdershins, but wait! not so. This is dragging on, and on, and on, involving explosives, and summoning circles, and this Barber person, and heaven knows what else . . . poor baby. His increasingly handsome, well groomed face looks sooo troubled . . .

  • Del

    Another intentional cliffhanger?

    Bad Kate! Bad cartoonist! Bad, bad girl!

  • Ovnidemon

    I just discovered that every chapter add for final “boss” one of the deadly sin. (It was surely pointed before). (Frist: Greed; second: Sloth; Third: Pride; Fourth: Gluttony; and now: Envy. And except Greed (but not sure), none of them had been correctly desummoned.) It mays already be answered if it was intentionnal or not.

    PS: Sorry for my bad English

  • Tokki Pen

    I wonder what Mal’s spirit looks like . . .

  • Dragon

    …..side effect? Of what, exactly?

    • gd

      RIGHT

  • NinjaKitten

    EEEEEEEEEEEEE he lost the spirit vision! I knew it! AAAAAAAAH SO EXCITED! I’m literally trembling from the adrenaline! This comic is AWESOME and I LOVE IT and it is the BEST.

  • Sarah W

    Hey! You don’t say Ben doesn’t matter!

    “It’s not on him anymore, at least. That’s all that counts.” Just Envy saying an in-character thing (since envy *can* exaggerate itself from wanting other people’s things to just not wanting other people to have them) or plot-relevant?
