Amelia hits the Emergency Open button on the tank control panel, opening the top of the tanks! But now she notices that Zik has gotten hurt! The Clonoid supersoldier is busy inspecting his badly singed hand as Zik falls back. Meanwhile, the Clonoid drone has picked up a blaster and zaps Trent right in the chest! A double whammy of deep trouble for our heroes!

Amelia hustles over to the power conduit and unplugs it from the main panel. Meanwhile, Trent is doing his best to help his fellow prisoners with the Clonoid soldiers. But he runs out of ammo, just as a Clonoid drone reaches for a dropped blaster! Zik attacks the Clonoid supersoldier with a fallen guard rail, but it’s ready for him- it grabs Zik and tries to decapitate him! Unbeknownst to the Clonoid, that isn’t a decorative shoulder pad. It’s an oxygen tank, and it explodes when the Clonoid crushes it! Is Zik OK?
Boom! The Clonoid Supersoldier comes crashing down on the catwalk, breaking off a support bracket in the process! The catwalk is now split in two along that seam! The falling bracket briefly distracts Trent, who goes right back to sniping Clonoid soldiers. Meantime, Amelia has gotten to the top of the ladder on her catwalk, and is close to the electrical panel. Zik kicks another support pole out from the side of the catwalk, destabilizing it further, while the Clonoid Supersoldier struggles to get up and the riot rages on below.
Welcome to the new Zik fans that have been reading through the archives! Feel free to join in the comments, don’t be shy!
Here are some more of my favorite comics, in case you’re looking for something cool to read until next Tuesday:
Trent decides that while he’s waiting at the power switch, he may as well knock off some Clonoids! Meanwhile, Amelia runs to a ladder and climbs up to the power conduits. Zik is up on the catwalk, and he catches another mighty punch, then ignites his E.V.R. rockets to deliver a huge blow to the torso! The Clonoid is flipped right up and over from the force of the impact!
Wow, lots happening on this page! I hope it makes sense! Zik is finally holding his own against this behemoth; let’s hope it lasts!
For everyone helping out with voting for Zik at topwebcomics.com: thank you! We’re hovering around the 200 rank, which is pretty good! Let’s see how high we can push it before the month ends! Vote once per day at this link!
Also, during the days when Zik isn’t updating, try these comics out:
- Locus, Silk And Honey, Locus: Godslayer and Tears Of The Dragon, all by Adam Black, are all one epic story of monsters and parallel universes (NSFW)
- Raven’s Dojo by Raven Perez – puns, perverts and pandemonium! (NSFW)
- Hominids by Jordan Kotzebue
I’ll link to more comics in the future, but for now, these will keep you really busy! All three are great long-form comics with riveting stories.
Zik finds out he’s dreaming his encounter with Sensei Raven and Sensei Adam. Well, while he’s here, he’s going to pick their brains about how to defeat the giant Clonoid! His teachers tell him not to be intimidated by the sheer size and strength of the Clonoid. It has the same basic structure as any other human, and therefore the same basic weak points that can be exploited. And Raven reminds Zik of something that he can do that the Clonoid won’t: amp up his attacks with awesome move names! Zik leaves the Dojo, waking back up in reality to find Amelia and Trent racing towards him!
In case you didn’t see the blog on the previous page, Adam and Raven are real people that have helped me immensely in my journey to tell this story. Adam’s guidance with anatomy and Raven’s unwavering focus and audacity with his own comic have both been instructive to me as I take my artistic journey to become a better visual storyteller. Please take some time to check out their comics at Raven’s Dojo and Locus Comics! Both their creations are NSFW, but hey, we’re grown-ups. If you’re not a grown-up, maybe wait until you are before checking them out.
Lastly, I just wanted to put in another plug for the fact that if you sign up for membership of this site at the Elite level, I’ll draw you like I did here for Raven and Adam! I’ll draw your portrait in this Zik cartoon style, but in full color, and send you the high-res file so you can use it for user icons, profile pictures, or whatever you like!
Looks like our hero’s getting deep fried! A shocking turn of events! Will he survive? Tune in Tuesday and find out!
By the way, the Clonoid’s lightening weapon isn’t all that futuristic. Check it out, they’re working on it right now!
