Oops... I forgot the "II" in the subject line... admin please fix!  

While our hero, ZCerberus, sits in his tower at Fort Brighton East

Posted Image

Redcoat minion: Sir!  We have terrible news!  The cowardly blue coats have kidnapped the most beautiful lady in all the land, the face that could launch a thousand ships... Lady Helen of Toy!

Posted Image

ZCerberus: We must rescue her!

Redcoat Minion: ... but how?  The bluecoats are not smart, cunning, or good looking, but they have a fortress with an absurdly large door!

ZCerberus: I know just the thing!

Much, much later, at the fortress with an absurdly large door:

Posted Image

Bluecoat Minion: Wow, look at that giant tribute to Helen of Toy, we must bring it inside our fortress with an absurdly large door!

Redcoat Minion: This is just like what the Greeks done at Troy, except they were in a horse, instead of a woman's breasts...

At sunset, the redcoats sneak out the back hatch to capture the bluecoats inside the fortress with the absurdly large door:

Posted Image

The redcoat raiders have no problem rounding up the hapless bluecoat minions.

Posted Image

ZCerberus: Now you bluecoat cowards, we will return to Fort Brighton so you may face your punishment!

Posted Image

ZCerberus: Boys.... GO BANANAS!!

Posted Image

Posted Image

Helen of Toy: My hero!


Okay, so not my best effort, but I was convinced the deadline was the 15th!  Oh well!  Thanks for looking!

the first time I saw a Redcoat, I always knew they wanted to be bluecoats, since they have always been a copycat... :pir-sad2:

now they have to use the greek design...well :pir-hmpf: , then we may soon see his proudly fleet using oars again :pir-tongue:

Sure the gate is absurdly large :pir-laugh:
Fort Brighton East is a fantastic building and it's very suitable for comic backgrounds.
The MOC's in this comic are all very nice and I like the story too.
Good job :thumbup:

A fantastic and comical entry.  It is always nice to see your wonderful Fort Brighton and that Trojan head was awesome!

Nice to see a literary reference!  I loved the strategy to get past the door.  Clever build and entertaining story.

Very interesting story.  :pir-classic:  How us Redcoats used a a trojan head to get into the Bluecoat fortress.  This should very soon be in the history books!
Great entry! :pir-sweet:

Bluecoats might be more than spineless, in fact it would appear to me that the are indeed boneless! :pir-laugh:

Great comic ZCeberus!
