Hunh. Is that reasonable? Well, I guess she knows what she's doing.

By the way everyone, next weekend I'll be attending the Ultimate Comic Book Trade Show and Expo! So if you happen to be in the vicinity of the Mid-Hudson Civic Center that Sunday, by all means, stop by my table and say hello! Or words to that effect.

Yes, this is very much a moment when it becomes REALLY clear just how much More Zandra has become. (not better or worse, just More. let's be clear)

This is not the Sandra that got anti-summoned down a mystical toilet. This is not her "father's" daughter. This is something Else. More expansive and layered, if not greater. She has gone from being a power, to a Power, at least in one corner of the world.

It's an interesting evolution.

also, bad ass.

"That is true. you have spoken a truth of the world. The sun will rise, and you will be made pitiful."
*small mental effort*
"It no longer applies. We are in my world now. Let us give you satisfaction."

Holy Mother Night indeed...

For the most part I agree. But May I add that even If This is not her "father's" daughter. I beleive its the Daughter he be Proud of and in his Prison Lord Incubus Smiles.

Wait, wait, Occam's Razor. There is some probability that this next bit is all in Bloo's head - she get's her fight, and satisfaction, the fight is super quick because it's all in Bloo's mind, so no sun, and everyone else watches Bloo say she wants a fight, Zandra looks at her for a second, and then guts her. No need to alter physics.

No, I think you were right the first time. The sky above Zandra's domain is hers to command.

Panel 3, had trouble perceiving Zandras elbow over Bloos shoulder. Looks like a shadow or something without more context.
Panel 7, has Sandra lost that little circle chain thing that hangs on her pants? There's speculation it symbolizes a halo; if you finally end the story you should talk more about it and Crystals chain earrings.
And them fighting in the shade feels like the perfect resolution. She's so powerful, but so gentle and generous, even with her enemies.

Little confused. If Panel 3 is "Yes...yes. Please." then Zandra's elbow is over Bloo's chest. Her arm is in front of Bloo, with the hand reaching up to cup Bloo's neck. Near-positive.

Bloo wants to die. She lost and now with nothing left but an eternity of being nothing more than what she is, after decades of being a vampire, she wants Zandra to kill her so she can finally be free.

Man... The disappointment in Sandra's eyes at Bloo's answer. Also, there hasn't been a fight with an audience since Tool. Let's see if Bloo has any tricks up her sleeve.

I wouldn't call that look "disappointed" so much as "grief-stricken". She takes care of the vampires as if they were her children, and Bloo just asked to go the way of the dodo...

Wow, Bloo AND Mike both have some serious desires for self-destruction. And BIG self-destruction--like self-apocalypse. Must be a vampire thing.

No it's just a typical human thing. But now sandra zandra the severe mother.. the dark mother.. and bloo gets her Epic Death.. like I said Alita can never allow an underling to dictate how they going to die

Zandra's been keeping us on our toes so far, let's see how she doesn't do anything we were expecting her to do... Next week, on another exciting episode of Demon Girl Z!

Honestly, I have no idea how this will go - we know Zandra's tail whip can decimate a vampire. So, the contest isn't really in question.

On one hand, I doubt Zandra can fake "even match" too hard (And if it looks too even, that just encourages other people to try this more often, which gets annoying)...on the other hand, I don't think Zandra wants Bloo going out like a sucker.

Either it's a one shot, a short exchange, or Zandra more or less "no-selling" everything in a way that Bloo still feels satisfied, but is clear to an outside observer that Zandra can't really lose.

I say she one-shots her and is done with it. Quick and easy, but messy as well, as a warning to anyone else who would oppose her.

I'd say she blots out the sky and makes herself look her most menacing, tail flashing through the air quickly before settling around the fight.

At this display of instant death Bloo will hesitate, then face her and try her best shot, she will manage to only draw a drop of blood on Zandra's cheek and they will be face to face. Zoom out and the head and shoulder/arm is all that is left of Bloo.

Cue a tearful farewell or thank you and Zandra then incinerates the pieces before lifting the darkness and slowly drifting down to the ground.

Jack only notices at the end since the vampires having an orgy freeze at the sight of their strongest vampire being torn to shreds in a heartbeat.

... has the whole battle been an attempt at suicide-by-demon? Get Zandra mad enough to make an epic ending without Bloo having to admit that she is not strong enough to go on?

I really dig Zandra's sense of justice, it's so... stoicist. Manifest destiny for everyone. No caretaking. You get what you asked for.

She chose destruction.

I felt this. The heartache on both sides is palpable, represented only through facial expressions. Great job, dude.

Dear Mr. England:

I've been following Zebra Girl for years now, and I would love to meet you. But the only convention near enough for me to visit is San Francisco Comic-Con.

We just finished it for 2017. Is there any chance of seeing you there in 2018?

Sincerely,

Michael B. English

PS- just in case you were wondering, I first found your website while searching for my own name. Strange world, huh?

You say you are going to be at "Ultimate Comic Book Trade Show and Expo!"

With that name, the 'Mid-Hudson Civic Center' better darn well be built on pylons in the middle of the river like the Legion of Doom headquarters.

All the best stories have an ending that is intrinsic to the story. I guess all of Zebra Girl's fans are about to be charged the unavoidable penalty for reading one of the best stories.
