94- Recursion

Well, this page took longer than expected.

I’m glad everyone seems to like the new colors for the site. Β It was about time I customized it at least a little.

In other news I’m almost ready to go live with that other comic I’ve been talking about, probably within the next month or two. Β I’ll probably be streaming when I color that comic too, I’ll make sure to tweet about it when I do it.

  6. PurplePumpkin

    Face Full of Rojo Crotch indeed <3

  7. JeKo

    I’ll probably never get first comment xD Ahh well. I just hope Pyro turns good D:

  8. Qqtt991

    Heartache.
    NnnnngGGHHH!!!
    Poor jordi. Having your life stolen by a jackass bastard has to hurt worse than those wounds.

    Aaarrrrggghhh!
    Damn you Rojo!
    Damn you to hell!

  9. Fish

    Ffffuckkkkk the only thing I keep thinking about is if anyone on BLU is going to notice it’s not the usual self-depreciating resident spy. Having doubts if Scout is going to figure it out.

  10. Woof

    Scout is probably going to figure out once ‘bleu’ keeps acting like a bastard. or someone at least.

  11. Qqtt991

    Wait a second…
    I have a feeling that RED Pyro is going to take pity on Jordi…

    *frown*
    I’m not sure… But it feels right.

  12. JeKo

    Wait, did Migue; say “were you crying through it all”? lol

  13. lowFatKittycat

    LIVE, JORDI, LIVE!!!1! PLEASE DON’T DIE ON ME, MAN!

    I’m eager to find out what’s gonna happen next.
    Oh, almost forgot…

    FACE FULL OF ROJO CROTCH!

  14. Qqtt991

    “were you trying to stall?”

    :I
    That confused me too.

  15. Sleepy_Eyes

    GRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH this is just….sad.

    And I have no ideas coming to me (yet?) about what will happen. And that is a very foreign feeling for me…

  16. Sleepy_Eyes

    OH and also, anyone else very worried about Scout?

  17. Qqtt991

    First worry that came to mind was rape…
    C’mon. You know it’s probable.

  18. Sleepy_Eyes

    Yeah, precisely (though not just that). I doubt it’d take long for Rojo to figure out how easy that’d be as Jordi, given soot’s clinginess and….everything. Not sure if Rojo’d go there, but, well…he’s a bastard.

  19. lowFatKittycat

    I’m worried about Scout. What if he finally decides to kiss Jordi by surprise and ends up kissing Rojo?! I would LOVE to see both their reactions to that though…

  20. Ch1

    Ok- now scout definetly needs to run in and kick his sorry ass.

  21. Ch1

    Woah I didn’t read the previous posts… Heh heh awkward

  22. death_101

    all i can think is

    shovel => rojo’s face

  23. Jia_Mekare

    Yes you CAN, Red Medic! You CAN help him! Come on, dude, I have faith in you! Don’t have me have that faith misplaced!

    Also I have a HARD time believing that Rojo’s going to fool the BLU team for long. He can’t. He…he just can’t.

  24. jenkinhimer

    ZOMG PYRO IS GONG TO HELP HIM, I CAN TELL BY THE LOOK!!!
    also as a side note
    AXETINGUISHER!!!!!! *does an air guitar*

  25. Devilpod

    I MISSED IT TODAY I WAS AT THE BEACH FFFFUUUUU-

    * doesn’t like the beach*

    come on Red babymedic! help him! D:

    as a side note, somehow Rojo appeals to me finally. when he’s kicking Jordi’s arse. wtf.

    loved the page though. also great colors, they happen to bmy rival school’s colors but I’m no patriot to my school C:

  26. Medical Inferno

    Pyro looks like a little puppy :3

  27. Shiny

    Dunt worry guys: Rojo is gonna get fucked up. He needs to pass the soldier’s shuvel test, the engi’s bottle test, and the scout’s gay test. Oh, and scout will probly jump roho thinking that it’s jordi, rojo will flip and think that his covers blown, the gabey decloaks, does a backstab with flourish, and both sides are happy he is back.

  28. Meems

    I know it shouldn’t, but “You’re starting over again!” made me laugh. I think it was imagining BLU Spy going, “And then you captured me and made me tell my story, so I said ‘It was raining the night I arrived’,” that did it.

  29. marzie

    OH GOD. OH MAN. OH GOD. OH MAN. OH GOD. OH MANNNNNNN.
    This is getting pretty intense.
    And I agree with anyone who says that the ‘you’re starting over again’ bit was funny. πŸ˜€ (like you over there, Meems :DD)

    Also, somehow, I DON’T KNOW HOW, I’m starting to like RED. As a character. Not as a person, but as a character, because those are two different things.

    RED medic’s concern is sweet though, and I like how he seems so… like, he just doesn’t want to be involved, but he has no choice. And Pyro’s silence is strangely powerful. I like. <3

  30. marzie

    Also, since I forgot to mention it before, panel 4, Jordi’s expression. The whole thing is so… INTENSE. :U

  31. Cho

    …What did I say about Rojo being too smart for his own good and not believing honest truth when it’s smacking him in his lousy face, eh?

  32. Max

    I honestly can’t tell if Red is a jerk but about the only one doing his job, or just a jerk. Is he supposed to be actually infiltrating, even during down time? Is he allowed to not-quite kill and cheat the system like that? Surely he has to have some motive, but I’m not sure if “actually do what he’s being paid to do unlike all you peaceniks” is fitting the bill right now.

    Also, that “useless information” thing gives me some hope that Blu has cleverly slipped false minor details into his story so Rojo will screw up his impersonation in small ways and alert Scout.

  33. Damien

    I just hope RED Pyro decides to torch Rojo and never let up.

  34. Mags

    You know it’s going to be a good day when you get up at 6am because you can’t sleep and find the next CV page waiting for you.

    …In other news, I find Rojo disguising as Jordi a bit… unsettling. It’s the familiar-but-different factor, I think.
    And of COURSE I’m worried about what’ll happen to Scout. ._.

  35. AkiraRen

    I have a bad feeling about this D:

  36. Zombikini

    MIGUEL

    WHAT ARE YOU DOING MIGUEL

    DON’T BE STARTING TROUBLE DO YOU HEAR ME MIGUEL

  37. Qqtt991

    I’m worried as to where those cuts on jordi’s arms and legs came from.

  38. Mags

    After going back and re-reading the archives, I think Jordi was awfully calm about everything. I mean, he’s being interrogated by Rojo and all, but he mentions it only a few times.

  39. MedicMaria

    oh man oh gosh oh man oh goshhh ; ;

    last time Rojo disguised as someone from BLU, lots of bad happened. ;-; I’m worried about scout.

  40. Orin J.

    C’mon pyro, you know you want to kill your team’s spy…….

    i mean, the BLU spy’s hardly a spy at all!

    (does this mean that bastard’s been bonking scoot?)

  41. anonymous

    Um, great page and all, but I’m not gunna lie: If there’s supposed to be a lapse in time between panel 1 and 2, it would be a hellova lot smoother if you squeezed the first panel into the page before this. I mean, cuz the only hint at all that there is a lapse in time is the fact that he seems to trail off, and that all of a sudden, he’s on the other side of the room getting the shit kicked out of him…

  42. Quicksilver

    I want to give Red!Medic a cookie. Him with his widdle soft heart.

  43. Quicksilver

    Accidentally hit ‘Submit Comment’ too soon, ugh. Hate it when I do that – sorry for double post, but I wanted to get some more critical comments in.

    First, I love the way you made time pass – with the first panel, which seems to be where we left off dramatically broken by the second, where we can see that Bleu has been beaten for some time now (i.e. cuts on the arm and leg that weren’t there before and then, later, bruise under the eye). It’s a powerful visual element that fits great into the narrative as a whole.

    Second, I like the subtlety and suspense built in the final three panels and the question of Pyro. If the Medic could over hear, than so could Pyro, and having the looming figure (who could either be the threatening!Pyro we’ve all come to expect and the reason the Medic can’t help OR the contemplative!Pyro taking in all that’s happend) is a good move.

    Finally, and this isn’t critical but amusing – when I saw the site update, all I could think of was Booster Gold and Blue Beetle.

  44. HamSandwich

    I finally got to watch Kytricam! C: I didn’t realize how much work went into making just one page…

    Red Medic is my favorite. He just seems so sweet ‘n’ innocent.

    Can’t wait to see where this is goingggggg

  45. Sushi Cuttlefish

    WOAH

    RED

    SERIOUSLY ASSHOLISH

    Scout gonn’ kill a motherfucker plz k ty

  46. wednesday

    Lol. I like this Medic.

  47. CometTheMicroraptor

    Everyone’s so worried about Rojo, I’m more worried about Pyro!

  48. LonelyTimeLord

    Awww, I’m a little worried for Scout, but I hope that he can sence the little differences between Rojo and Jordi, because he’s been following him around so much… and kick’s his ass πŸ˜‰

    Poor Jordi <3

  49. Mazteur

    Omg D8 I hate Red Spy even more!! That bastard!! If he tries anything on Scout and hurts him, I think I will cry >:

    And heal him, Medic!! You know ya want toooo.

  50. Chime

    @ shiny
    you forget that blue spy told him everything, and that he knows about scout and the soldier’s shovel, and small things like that.

    And my gosh those 2 panels before the last one are so flirty. Hand on knee, on chin… I know its not meant to come across that but I smiled a little.

  51. Tsurugi

    I’m probably the only one here who thinks this, but Red Medic makes me want to hit him because of how useless he is…

    But on the plus side, I can totally imagine the red Pyro knocking Anton out/shoving Anton out of the way, breaking Jordi out, and letting him go all without saying a word, making for one big crowning moment of awesome/heartwarming.

    Either that or setting him on fire…

  52. Pesky

    MORE SPY/MEDIC PLEASE!!!!!!!!

  53. Eve-Hallowz

    Omg im always super excited when another Cuanta Vida comic comes out. @w@

  54. Summergale

    HIS EYES

    HIS EYES ARE GOING TO BE GREEN

    please check that, Scoot. PLEASE

  55. Momowoo

    NNNNNNNGH

    That is all.

    Can’t wait for your other comic Kytri, I’ll be waiting.

  56. Greasy Kiwi

    Hmm, Pyro feel sorry? Hmm. Hope so.

    DAMN YOU ROJO!

  57. Ivi

    *gasp*
    is the narration talk we were wondering about before Spy talking to Rojo?!?
    and Rojo=@$$hole

  58. Old Man Neck

    Bleu is screwed, hopefully Rojo gets discovered when the BLU soldier gives him the honorary head trauma that afflicts Bleu whenever the soldier is nearby.

  59. goddess

    so it was this RED spy he was narrating to all this time. oh blu …

  60. goddess

    so it was this RED spy he was narrating to all this time. oh kytri …

  61. Aluminum

    Cut out Scout’s tongue! πŸ˜€

  62. TheBobIsComing

    @ Medical Inferno
    i had to hold a lol in from that..

    @ Meems
    i did lol at that xD

    !!!! Red Pyro makes me nervous/anxious/cantwaittillnextpanel
    what?

  63. death_101

    first. jordi’s nose seems to have been turned into a beak

    second. AXETINGUISHER YAY

  64. Qqtt991

    OMFG!!
    A SPECK OF CARAMEL IN THE BIG BOWL OF VANILLA ICECREAM!!!

  65. Mags

    Y’know, it’s times like these that make me really depressed that CV isn’t real. ‘Cuz I really, REALLY want to give Jordi a hug. He just desperately needs one.

  66. Woof

    FIFTH PANEL

    SEXY ROJO

  67. sonya

    D= poor blue spy

  68. Jazikun

    Why must you tease?!?! Now I must know what happens next.

  69. Erika

    I only got to watch the first half of kytricam, sob.
    Also, DAT MEDIC. I LOVE HIM SO MUCH.

  70. Laura

    Consider my mind officially blown. I’m not sure who I thought Jordi was narrating too (I think I was leaning towards being forced to give an account of himself and his teammates to higher-ups), but I NEVER expected it to be Red Spy. I’m freaking out here, and in a great way!

  71. Cho

    I’m not at all sure THIS is the full-on narration Jordi was giving to someone at the beginning of the story. Rojo doesn’t have all day to listen to all the random unrelated-to-intel details, he seems the type to want to get down to business.

    Also, I don’t think Jordi would rat out his other “escape attempt” co-conspirators.

  72. Loren

    So just wondering… now that we know he said it all under duress, are we still sure that what he said was the truth, whole and nothing but?

  73. Shiny

    Know what? Mabye it was all just a lie…. Maybe the whole of CV is a lie… No gabe, Liam, scout, engi, no one. Maybe jordi was just lying through his teeth, and on the next page we find our beloved world ripped to shreds.

  74. Om Nom

    THE FUCK REDMED?! HEAL JORDI. HEAL HIM. HEAL HIM WITH YOUR CUTENESS dammit ;_;

  75. Becca

    @Shiny –
    Or maybe, just maybe, he lied about important things? Like Gabe and Liam being dead? :D?? Not likely, but maybe he did gloss over some facts that he knew Rojo shouldn’t be aware of? This could be interesting.

  76. Laura

    Okay, my theory re: Pyro that I’m sure everyone and their brother has called months before. Red!Pyro is the “other person” that Blu!Pyro wanted to take with them on the escape. Either way, I LOVE the suspense of that last panel, excellent storytelling.

  77. Qqtt991

    Oh god.
    Theories hurt my braaaiiin.

  78. Red Spy Psycho

    this is pretty beast, i like the new scheme, easier on the eyes

  79. Red Spy Psycho

    @Shiny and Becca, Maybe it is all a lie, MAYBE it’s the cake that is true, For if the cake is a lie, and the world is a lie, the only truth you can depend on is the cake being a lie, therefore the cake is the truth and it’s all a lie

  80. Greasy Kiwi

    Shuvel In face maybe, then followed by malfunction, and then followed by rescue of bleu.

  81. HamSandwich

    Even if some of Jordi’s story is a lie, there are some elements that are already proven to be consistent. The original red spy must be dead, or Rojo wouldn’t be there in the first place; the Red!Medic acts like he did in Jordi’s confession; and the parts of the story that involve Rojo must be accurate, otherwise Rojo would probably have intervened sooner, assuming that it was all a pack of lies before it was over.

    Maybe, anyway…
    So some of it must be true, at least…

  82. Shiny

    But how could rojo check things before his arrival? That stuff could be complete bullshit.

  83. Sleepy_Eyes

    I dunno, somehow I strikes me as more appropriate if Jordi really did tell the truth about things, and Rojo isn’t believing him anyway. Guess we’ll have to see, though.

  84. Becca

    I JUST noticed Rojo’s jacket is off and sleeves are rolled up, obviously showing how time has passed quite a bit. D: How long was he beating poor Jordi?!

    Rojo is an awesome character but I hate him all the same. xD Aughhh.

  85. Julie

    NO! Damnit! Fuckin Rojo ;-; poor Jordi! Idk why but i think something very uncomfortable is going to happen between Rojo and Jeremy….

  86. Qqtt991

    Oh god.
    No. Jeremy would automatically know!

  87. Sleepy_Eyes

    Huh…someone brought up in the forums that Rojo might have ALREADY compromised his disguise, and yanno, it’s kinda true: Jordi’s arms aren’t that hairy, and he has a scar on his left forearm. oh, and his eyes aren’t green. hmm.

  88. Orin J.

    man, don’t ruin it for everyone sleepy!

  89. jasonz777z

    Like it? OF COURSE I LIKE TEH NEW COLOURS!
    But then the RED pyro isn’t shoving molotov clocktails up his nose, in his stomach, …you get what I mean. So yeah, I wonder…

  90. cupcakehat

    AHHA THE NOSE! ROJO’S NOSE IS THE SAME BUT AZUL’A NOSE IS ALL BENT. AH HA AH HA!

  91. Sleepy_Eyes

    AAAH I’M SO SORRY ORIN I JUST CAN’T HELP MYSEEEEEEEELF *sob*

  92. jenkinhimer

    oh nice going, ya made sleepy cry >:/

  93. Orin J.

    I Regret nothing! Well, eating the ice cream too fast.

    I still want the red pyro to bar-b-que that bastard. Pyro justice! PYRO JUSTICE!

  94. Zoe

    I feel an acual medic/spy bond coming….

  95. Zoe

    Waaaaaaaaait a minute….. what if spy told him all FALSE facts? Hehehehehehehe….

    But what about scootie? Is he okaaaaaaaaay?

  96. Qqtt991

    EnemyMedic-Spy. Gay-ish Scout. Scout-Spy bond.

    This won’t end well.

  97. Kaiyax

    I hope BLU Scout (or even RED Scout) figures out it isn’t Jordi DDD: and to quote from a few pages back “break that fucker’s kneecaps and knock his teeth out”

  98. Ch1

    I miss scout. He better be in the next comic.

  99. jenkinhimer

    oooo thatd be awesome if blue scout ACTS like he fell for the disguise, then when Rojo least expects it, beats the fo-sheezy outta him!

  100. Dr. Octagonapus

    Hi, haven’t commented before, but I’ll start now.

    I’d so turn gay for the Pyro. He’s so FRIGGIN CUTE!

  101. Mags

    Last night, I came up with a name for RED Medic before I remembered that he already had a name. (Fritz, in case you were wondering.)

    More on-topic: I think Jordi/Anton would be very sweet. Even though I know it’s not going to happen at all. :)

  102. Julie

    Nooo D: I protest Anton/Jordi. He’s gotta be with Jeremy cuz Jeremy loves him very much *nods* What about Anton/James? he seemed to really like him

  103. LonelyTimeLord

    Mmm I agree, Jordi needs to be with Jeremy … not Anton. Spy/Scout make such a cute couple xx

  104. Dr. Octagonapus

    Ooh! What about Anton/BLU Heavy! That’s one community known pairing we haven’t seen yet!

  105. Mags

    Ustream is up~

    http://www.ustream.tv/channel/kytricam

  106. Qqtt991

    I hate yardwork, dammit.

  107. Dr. Octagonapus

    Grrr, I’m stuck in lunch and can’t watch the Ustream. Thank god for wifi and the Ipod Touch.

  108. Qqtt991

    …wait. What? You have ustream on your itouch?
    WHAT?

  109. Dr. Octagonapus

    Nono, I can’t watch it. But I can still use the Internet.
    Apparently Ustream is working on making it Ipod touch accessible, so I gotta wait.

  110. Qqtt991

    :/ ah yes. That message.

    Eh. Oh well.

  111. DJAliceCooper

    So I’m pretty sure the antagonists have been winning for far too long.

    I’ve been waiting, for whatever were supposed to be waiting for, for a long time now, and i’m kind of starting to think that its never going to come. -that you’re not thinking about when or where the end of this slow slope down is going to be; and that makes me not want to read any more.
    ;_;
    Heres saying, i want something positive to happen – like a bad guy orders an egg sunny-side up, and – instead of it coming exactly the way he ordered – its served up scrambled to a crisp! (Or, at least with a pube laying on top.)
    :/
    Metaphorically speaking, Bad guys dont deserve their eggs the way they like them all the time when the good guys arent getting any eggs at all.
    ^^;

  112. Dr. Octagonapus

    @DJAliceCooper
    Amen!

  113. Qqtt991

    ^^
    this.

    83

  114. Mentlegen

    I agree with DJAliceCooper, the most recent comics have just been drama for the sake of drama, which is lame.

  115. sonya

    I forgot to write, I love how this loops back around to the beginning. It’s cool that you aren’t just making it up as you go, but that you have the whole thing plotted out =) “An out of work spy takes whatever job he can get, you understand…” ahahah awesome

  116. SnazzyCat

    I only just realised that Bleu was narrating the story to Rojo, which means all the parts in Blue (Which I always interperated as a journel entry sort of thing) are actually Bleu telling the story to Rojo. Meaning that most, if not all, of the previous chapters are actually in the past and the present starts now.

  117. Purge

    People! If you don’t like the drama, then don’t read!
    Don’t go about demanding that you want less drama. Chances are, you won’t get it.
    It’s clear that the artist has this planned specifically. If you don’t like it, well too bad.

    Anyways, it looks as though Engie finally got his new hand! Nice touch!

  118. Shiori Tsumi

    “Make sure ‘e oesn’ leave the room until I come and get him.”
    “Right. He’s not to leave the room…even if you come and get him.”
    “No, until I come and get him.”
    “Until you come and get him, we’re not to enter the room.”
    “No, you stay IN the room and stop him from leaving.”

    XD I couldn’t help it, that’s what came to my mind when I read Rojo’s line there.

  119. michael

    OMG after reading this page 6 days in a row, (yes im that obsessed, not with the author, im not stalker-rific. i just like the comic.) i finnaly get the whole your starting over again thing. way to break the 4th wall there rojo.. unless…. he was telling rojo the whole time! and now we finally caught up to the present!

  120. kittengrl39

    No, no, that was "were you trying to stall?" with his Basque accent firmly in place.
