This is a bit of a first here. I am adding the latest in my series of Code Geass R2 4komas on my Anime Vice blog the very same day I posted on my deviant Art page. Both are based upon Episode 23.

This first one is titled "Comfort Deux". It's based on the scene early in the episode where Lelouch is still reeling from the idea that Nunnally is still alive and how this will effect the plan he has spent so much time working on.
 
I remembered that the last time Lelouch thought he was losing Nunnally he became kind of depressed and sort of hit on Kallen with this, "then...comfort me." line. I thought it would be funny if in this scene where Suzaku is confronting Lelouch about Nunnally that perhaps he is so confused that he actually forgets who he's talking to and thinks it's Kallen again. I lot of yaoi fans enjoy this one as well. The keen observer will notice C.C.'s hand slowly coming into view with the recorder in panels two and three. That is sort of a call back to some of my favorite moments in Loony Toons where something or someone would slowly come into view for comedic effect. That's why I gave C.C. that sort of sly Bugs Bunny look at the end.
 
As you can tell in the picture above. I really like to try and emulate the scenes I'm making into a joke. That way fans will be able to know exactly where this is taking place. You often don't see that level of detail in fan comics.

Yet another 4koma to go along with this same episode. It's this image that both debuts on both Anime Vice and deviant Art at the same time. The title is "Release". This is a little later after it's been revealed that the Black Knights had repaired Gino's KMF, the Tristan. He's talking with Kallen about how he understands how she must of felt being half Brittanian and fighting with the Japanese. Really, it's a stupid statement. He didn't understand at all what she was feeling.
 
I really hated Gino. He was the most pointless character that never influenced anything in the series. I don't even think through the whole series that he ever even knew that Lelouch was originally Zero. I really wish Suzaku had killed him when he killed the other Knights of the Round.
 
Art wise, one of my favorite touches was the blurring of the Tristan in the foreground. It helped sell the sense of depth. The color work came out pretty well too.

Here is the posting for today. It's a bit late in the day, because there was a Mythbusters marathon on today.

The previous 4komas had some pretty sexy art with the open cleavage and what happened to Cecile. This one has some beefcake for the girls.
 
The comic for Episode 12 is based on the idea of the male strippers at bachelorette parties. Now, if you have seen the previous episodes of Code Geass R2 that delt with this. Lelouch, dressed as Zero, interupted the wedding that had been arraigned for the Chinese Empress. Also, after the battle in China had been settled. Lelouch returned to Japan and found that two members of the Knights had joined the student council. I thought it would be funny if what he did created some sort of trend in male strippers. They dress up as Zero an try to kidnap the bride to be. In this comic I imagine that 'somehow' Milly talked Lelouch into being the man in the cake for this.
What Milly neglected to mention was that she canceled her arranged marriage. That she's going to wait until Lelouch dances for her to tell him. A lot of people don't quite get what Suzaku is thinking in this shot.  He's both confused and entertained. At this point he's not 100% sure if Lelouch has his memories back. So, he sees some irony in Lelouch dressed up as a stripper Zero. Here we have Lelouch in a banana hammock. lol
 
The comic for Episode 13 is based upon the scene where V.V. first appeared to Cornelia. He barely had the chance to say anything before she threw a knife into his head. I thought it was funny how she just cut him off mid-sentence. I thought it could be funny that if she just keeps trying to kill him over and over. Each time he gets to say less and less. Barty is just standing there getting bored. In the end V.V. is just ticked off and Cornelia is still trying to kill him. I wanted her to have a look of both fear and intense intrigue.
 
In case you are wondering. What V.V. is trying to say in each panel before he's cut off:

" Now, as I was saying. "
" You know, that still hurts. "

Hope you enjoyed and had a good laugh. The Mythbusters marathon is over. So now, I'm going to go play some Assassin's Creed 2.
