Caliborn: Show Dirk how much you've improved.


CALIBORN: HELLO.
CALIBORN: LONG TIME NO SEE. MY SOUL BROTHER.
CALIBORN: HAVE YOU BEEN FOLLOWING. MY TRANSFORMATION.
DIRK: Hey man.
DIRK: Can't say I have.
CALIBORN: WELL. YOU SHOULD BE.
CALIBORN: BECAUSE I HAVE BECOME. THE MOST TALENTED ARTIST. IN THIS ENTIRE GODFORSAKEN COMIC.
CALIBORN: (I KNOW THIS COMIC IS GOD FORSAKEN. BECAUSE I AM THE GOD. WHO IS FORSAKING IT.)
CALIBORN: (THIS IS WHAT'S KNOWN IN THE INDUSTRY. AS "SUBTEXT".)
CALIBORN: (PERHAPS IT HAS GONE OVER YOUR HEAD.)
DIRK: Damn, dude, alright, let's see what you've got.

CALIBORN: LOOK CLOSELY AT THIS.
CALIBORN: I HAVE READ FROM MY FAVORITE MAN GAKA. HIROHIKO ARAKI.
DIRK: My man. Dude knows how to write a fight scene.
CALIBORN: YES.
CALIBORN: I READ HIS WORK AND UNDERSTAND WHAT IT IS. TO BE MASCULINE. AND POWERFUL.
CALIBORN: THE MAN JONATHAN. AND THE MAN JOSEPH.
CALIBORN: THEY ARE WONDROUS.
CALIBORN: BUT HIS WORK IS LONG, AND GRUELING TO READ.
CALIBORN: SO I HAVE NOT READ AFTER "DIAMOND IS UNBREAKABLE".
CALIBORN: BUT I KNOW THAT THIS MAN. UNDERSTANDS THE TRUE BUFF BRO MENTALITY.
CALIBORN: AND HE HAS A LONG AND TRIUMPHANT PATH AHEAD OF HIM. IF HE IMPROVES AT DRAWING THE BUFF MEN. AND THEIR GHOSTS. THAT ASSERT THE MOST MANLY FORM OF COMBAT THERE IS.
CALIBORN: PUNCHING THE LIVING SHIT OUT OF EACH OTHER.
CALIBORN: IT IS FROM HIM THAT I LEARNED THE MOST IMPORTANT ADVICE I HAVE EVER HEARD.
CALIBORN: THAT CARTOONISTS, AND AUTHORS. OWN REAL HAND GUNS.
CALIBORN: AND FIRE THEM OFF IN THEIR BASEMENTS.
CALIBORN: MOST IMPORTANTLY. I HAVE BOUGHT A HAND GUN.
CALIBORN: AND I AM ALWAYS FIRING IT. BECAUSE I AM THE MOST SUPERIOR MAN GAKA THERE IS.

DIRK: What in the world is that.
CALIBORN: ALREADY YOU ARE BEING CRUEL. BUT YOU SHOULD UNDERSTAND. THE TOILS OF AN AUTEUR.
CALIBORN: I HAVE TAKEN UP. FIGURE DRAWING. DOING. "STUDIES".
CALIBORN: THOUGH I DO NOT CARE FOR WOMEN. AND THEIR MISERABLE HYSTERICS.
CALIBORN: UNDERSTANDING ANATOMY IS SUPPOSEDLY. "IMPORTANT".
CALIBORN: FOR DRAWING. AND NOT JUST UNDERSTANDING. HOW BEST TO DO PUZZLEMURDERS.
CALIBORN: THESE WERE INSPIRED BY YET ANOTHER MARVELOUS MAN GAKA. WHO I CONSIDER MY EQUAL.
CALIBORN: THE MASTER. OF PIRATE WHIMSY.
CALIBORN: I ASSUME. AGAIN, HIS WORK IS EVEN LONGER AND MORE INSUFFERABLE.
CALIBORN: THAN OUR OWN.
CALIBORN: SO UNDERSTANDABLY. I HAVE NOT COMPLETED IT.
CALIBORN: NOR DO I HAVE THE DESIRE TO.
DIRK: Ok, that makes sense.
DIRK: Yeah, I get that man. Dressrosa was awful.
CALIBORN: THIS. THIS INTELLIGENCE AND CHUTZPAH. IS WHY YOU ARE THE NUMBER ONE SOUL BROTHER.
CALIBORN: YOU ARE A MAN WHO SAYS WHAT NEEDS TO BE SAID.
DIRK: Maybe find a better artist to study for this one.
DIRK: Hey... dude.
CALIBORN: DO NOT LOOK CLOSELY AT MY ART FOLDER.
DIRK: What's that, what's that on the other side of that folder.
CALIBORN: WHAT? WHAT THE FUCK.
DIRK: Is that...
DIRK: Your OC?
CALIBORN: ... NO.
CALIBORN: I DO NOT MAKE. "ORIGINAL CHARACTERS". OR "SONAS".
CALIBORN: THAT'S SACCHARINE HORSESHIT FOR SUGARSICK LOSERS.
CALIBORN: THIS IS MY "SELF INSERT".
CALIBORN: WHICH IS TOTALLY DIFFERENT.
DIRK: No need to get defensive, dude.
DIRK: An OC, a fursona, we've all got them.
DIRK: See, check out mine.
CALIBORN: OH THIS IS BEAUTIFUL.
CALIBORN: OKAY, YOU'VE CONVINCED ME.
CALIBORN: TAKE A FUCKING GANDER.
CALIBORN: ALL THINGS ABOUT THIS GORGEOUS BASTARD TELL YOU LOUD AND CLEAR. THIS IS A MAN OF CLASS AND STYLE.
DIRK: That is so sweet, man.
CALIBORN: ARE YOU SETTING ME UP.
DIRK: For what, dare I ask?
CALIBORN: FOR A "BRO HUG BUMP".
DIRK: Oh yeah I just up and said that huh.
DIRK: I could give my bro Cal a fist bump.
CALIBORN: LET'S MAKE THIS SHIT WORK.
