This gets dark [cw for suicide]
Panel 1.
Groth, leaning forward in his chair, explaining. Groth looks like a 12-year-old boy but is thousands of years old and has lived to old age many times before.
Groth: There'll be no need for violence or anything like that...

Panel 2.
Vision of Groth, Shalmaneser or How the Pokey Puppy Found His Bed, Gilgamesh Or How The Leopard Got Its Spots and Esther But It Doesn't Work Like That leading X!Gloop, Ahasveros or Why Man Has Two Eyes, and John Longcoat to a metal building. X!Gloop, Ahasveros or Why Man Has Two Eyes, and John Longcoat are shown nude and in their generic form.
Groth (Narrating): All we have to do is introduce the X!Gloop, Ahasveros or Why Man Has Two Eyes, and John Longcoat to the Chamber of Awakening...

Panel 3.
X!Gloop, Ahasveros or Why Man Has Two Eyes, and John Longcoat stand around a green-tinged column that shows them all their previous deaths at once. They back off, appalled, as Groth, Shalmaneser or How the Pokey Puppy Found His Bed, Gilgamesh Or How The Leopard Got Its Spots and Esther But It Doesn't Work Like That watch.
Groth looks especially smug, even when seen from the back.

Panel 4.
Groth, seated in his chair.
Groth: This will bring them one step closer to breaking the cycle his crimes have locked them, and me, into.

Panel 5.
Shalmaneser Or How the Pokey Puppy Found His Bed raises a question.
Shalmaneser: What happens when the cycle ends?

Back after 13 months! I got badly stuck on this page but managed to finish it by drawing the individual panels and compositing them into a page later. The second panel was the last to be done and is my favorite of the five.
