FISTBUMP.

I spy fanart in panel five. That's cute. And I think there's more easter eggs on Juniors shelf, but I can't see.

Oooooh~ Who's giving Minnie a present? Is that Nergal-language? Is it her daddy? her mom? Junior?(first guess) Chi already getting into a team-up incestuous-sisters plan? Incest-Sissy-Duo! All we're missing is a snapped!auntieBubbles and it's a trio.

Don't know where that came from. Empty threads make me nervous. Listening to old WW2 songs. Damn, Mimi likes Muffins. Hashtagandthenshewasshot.

Terribly sorry.

I think the new site design is making my computer lag.

It's quite what?

Junior has a series of PPGD action figures.
I just love how people put commas, in places they so obviously, do not belong.

I don't know about you, but I love the Young Justice animated series.

I'm gonna go ahead and say that the gift is most likely from Nergal Jr, since the note on the box appears to be written in the Nergal language. Unless there's another Nergal out there we don't know about. Then again, that could just be some form of generic scribbles, made to look like English from a distance.

Like I said before, I would really like to know more about Nergal Jr's personality in this comic, and his feelings towards is only (possibly only) flesh-and-blood child. I wonder if Minnie knows that Nergal Jr is her real father?

Agreed. I would like to see him play a bigger role, at least in her life.

It's hinted at here in this page: http://grim.snafu-comics.com/index.php?comic_id=58
But never said in a solid manner.

Interesting. From what I can see, Minnie and Nergal Jr have a strong bond, but that doesn't really tell use rather or not she knows. But come to think of it, she has (well, had) Nergal powers and he has Nergal powers, so I'm guessing she's already figured it out by on her own by now.

I would like to see what Nergal Jr's character and personality is like in this comic. Personally, I'm hoping he will be all cool and badass, but still have a weird obsession with companionship, like he did in the show. What do you think?

Junior is an obsessive collector of game guides. He has six and seven copies of game guides that are for the same games. ( :D comedically missing the point... facetiousness is hilarious)

I get the impression Nergal Jr. isn't allowed to play a bigger role. Minnie's parentage may be an open secret (Junior seems like he's the last to know), but Grim is officially still Minnie's father and Mandy has it that way for her own reasons. That being said, Junior's noticed Nergal Jr. was spending time with his sister which indicates Nergal Jr. is in Minnie's life. I don't think he can do much more openly, though.

I don't believe Minnie had to figure it out. As a Nergal Demon, she had access to the Nergal language, history, and memories...from birth. Plus, even if Minnie didn't know intrinsically, I don't believe the information would have ever been withheld from her. Given that Junior mentions that Minnie "took" Nergal Jr. away from him, Minnie kept her demon powers a very guarded secret, and both the memories (already linked to previously in this thread) and the real-time reaction to her rescue, it's evident she knows who her bio daddy is.

As readers, we have seen the "badass" side to him when he was fighting the Pumpkinator, but as for what he is like in his downtime, I don't know and I'm not sure I would particularly care. I wouldn't want to see him more in the comic -- not only is the cast crowded as is, but there's not really much that can be explored by having him around. He isn't a threat and he's still Mandy's pawn. Grim fills that that role, while the manifestation of Nergal (as well as Junior's Nergal half) helps with any Nergal Demon exposition we need. A hint or an occasional nod to Nergal Jr. might be nice, but he's deliberately not part of the picture. This comic is Grim Jr.'s tale, not Minnie's, and there's not much he can offer.

For the most part, I think you're right. I'm not sure about how secret her powers were though.

Fair enough. That being said, this might not be the last time he discreetly helps her out. Come to think of it, he probably snuck in past the guards, in order to give her that present, that is if he's even the one that gave it to her.

I have to disagree with you on this one. I would like to see at least a little bit of Nergal Jr's personality in this comic. I don't think Nergal Jr is Mandy's "pawn". He's definitely had sex with her in the past, but I don't know what his relationship with her is presently. I really don't feel like the cast it "crowded" in this comic. Just the opposite, I feel like it could really benefit from a few more characters, preferably from Megaville. Also this comic is Minnie's tale, as well as Grim Jr's. She and Junior are the two main characters.

Agreed. The tale isn't just Jr's, its both of theirs.

Who said he could? He's Death, not the Restorer of Life.

You could go deep into this though.

Wasn't there an episode of the show where Grim went through an operation or surgery and wound up as a mortal for a while? I wonder if something like that could be done to make Minnie look normal again without the loss of her abilities (if she has any left to speak of, that is).

No, he was actually Human, kinda ugly too. Had something to do with a supernatural cold or something. Wound up returning to normal when a giant blob of mucus from said cold ate him and brought him back to nothing but bone.

Don't remember the title but the idea there was that Grim actually died. Apparantly as he is dead already and was born dead, when he "dies" he becomes alive. The Mucus blob killed him again making him dead again. I think that's only a trick you can pull off if being dead is your default state. Mimi was born alive so I think that, now that she is dead she's stuck that way.
