Diego is pretty much how we see chupacabras in Puerto Rico. Amadeus is pretty much how the world sees our loveable goat sucker.

D'aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaw! At least someone found romance and a babysitter.

I found the very different takes on the chupacabra in our comics quite intriguing (one having human-level intelligence, the other basically being an animal) - so naturally I had to play with that!
And quite frankly, I got greatly inspired by this scene from the Family Guy / Simpsons crossover....

Also, can't send Charybdis on a date without at least acknowledging that she already has a de-facto family, raising a mer-baby with another mermaid...

I had never seen that Simpson scene. Thanks for sharing.

When chupacabras collide!

This was a lot of fun. Thanks, Microraptor!

We have so delightfully "incompatible" versions of chupacabras in our comics, I just couldn't resist! ^^
(See also the more elaborate explanation I gave in my answer to vaslittlecrow's comment above.)

In any case, I'm very glad that you like it! :-)

Puerto Rico and New Jersey flags were also a nice touch ^_^

Ah, you noticed!
Had to put something on the wall! ^^

(My first idea was flags of sport teams - but I know zilch about what sport teams are popular in New Jersey!)

XD Just goes to show, just cause they're the both Chupacabras, doesn't mean they are meant for each other XD


(low key, that'd have been me on that box of chocolates XD XD)

There's even a trope for that!
BlueDragon 14th Feb 2022, 5:05 PM

Oh god! Yeah, that's so true!

(but on a side note, now I want to rewatch Daria...trope or no)

Why should cryptids be luckier with their dates...

True story!

Granted, the date between Diego and Amadeus was a complete failure - however, the one between Lora and Charybdis seems to at least start quite well...

I don't care if this is disproven, Amadeus set up his own profile for the website.
Microraptor 15th Feb 2022, 2:14 PM
Microraptor
Yeah, how did he do that!?

A mystery for the ages... ;-D

Granted, I don’t know about Amadeus to make any assumptions, but he had to have his profile set up somehow and communicated in some way to form date plans and be able to arrive for said date. But yeah, probably best not to just focus on the chocolates instead of your date.

This piece was hilarious, Microraptor!

Quite a lot for a creature that seems to be merely a mindless beast!
(Or perhaps he's actually smarter than he lets on...?)

In any case, I'm glad you liked it, jmluvsbob! :-)

I, for one, am a pretty big fan of Amadeus after this.

Glad to hear that! :-D

He's unfortunately a rather underused character in my comic. (He just recently had his first new appearance after being absent to the plot for four years!!)

Curiously, he is nevertheless one of the characters who often get picked for crossover exchange pieces (the ones I receive, I mean), so people seem to like the little guy...

LOL I love them both! Poor Diego I hope he'll find a mate! We need more Chupacabras (easy for me to say, being so far, far, FAR away!) :)

Diego seems like a quite sophisticated fellow, I'm sure he'll eventually find someone - chupacabra or not - who'll value that in him! :-)
