It updates Tuesdays and Saturdays, sometimes more often, if enough people toss a few dimes in Wildbow's donation box. Give it a try, although beware: this shizzle can be highly addictive.
Here's a picture of one of the many interesting characters in the story: Maggie Holt, the self-proclaimed Goblin Queen. (Because: reasons.)
*'Gritty' in the sense of: "Aaah! You shanked me in the belly! And now you're cooking some grits in the stab wound, to go along with my liver, ow ow ow!", although less silly.
EDIT: If you'd rather avoid having to trawl through a bunch of links, then you can find a lot of the same drawings that are linked below, if you visit my Wildbow folder on DeviantArt or my Wildbow section on Tumblr.
You should definitely also check out this fine blog dedicated to Pact illustrations and doodles, which updates frequently and has loads of stuff to marvel at.
Oh, and watch out for all the spoilers.
2nd EDIT: Check out the new Blakeguard group on DeviantArt, it will hopefully become a repository for all kinds of cool Pact-related stuff that people upload to that site.

Since there's a long-standing tradition for posting silly spin-off parody 'omake' versions of Wildbow's stories as comments on his chapters, Pact should be no exception. (Gonna post copies of them here, in case anyone wants to read them without having to trawl through the several hundred comments on old chapters.)
(Seriously, don't read them unless you've already read the chapters they were spawned from.)

Comic strip based on a scene from the web serial Pact: Bonds 1.5:
“We can, we can. But first, I must insist…” Patrick hopped up onto the four-inch window sill, taking a knee, somehow without falling or touching the glass. He reached through the glass and put a hand on the back of Rose’s neck, then drew her forward, his head passing into the window to plant the lightest of kisses on her forehead.
He hopped down, giving me a plain view of a very startled Rose.

Blake Thorburn gets a visit from Lardo, AKA Laird Behaim.
In case you're wondering, the greenish severed hand belongs to Padraic, who lost it in the previous totally non-canon comic strip. Because, you know. This type of scene traditionally calls for a severed hand.
Damn you Monkey. I have been reading the supers story for all this week. It has taken up more of my time than almost anything else recently.
You've been Wildbow'ed!

Fan comic of how the battle between Blake Thorburn and Letita the Faerie Familiar Swordmistress coulda panned out, in the excellent web serial Pact: http://pactwebserial...2-damages/2-04/
She drew a sword slowly, with second after second of the clean sound of the weapon leaving the scabbard. I wasn’t sure what kind of sword it was.
The damned weapon was easily twelve feet long. Her arms outstretched in front and behind her, she bent the metal until it bowed in a ‘u’. When it came free, it did so in a shower of sparks, the blade practically dancing as it recoiled, returning to its straight length. The sound of metal singing filled the air.
She held it pointing straight up until it stilled, then lowered it so the point was aimed straight at my heart, her position very much like a fencer’s. If I looked past the movement of the wind that made the length of thin metal sway, the blade didn’t shake or waver in the slightest.
Now, this scene is starting to sound like something straight out of an over-the-top anime*. However, it's also reminiscent of a scene in the graphic novel Poison Elves, where the outrageous character known as the Purple Marauder would leap out and terrorize people with his needle-sharp sword and simultaneously homoerotic and -phobic overtones. At one point, another character tries to confront the Purple Fruitcake by engaging him in conversation, even going so far as to carry out Freudian psychoanalysis of the implications of the swords they like to poke people with.
It does not end well.
PS: Of course, Letita's dress in the drawing is nowhere near as elaborate or gorgeous as it's described in the story. That'll have to be remedied, at some point; in another drawing, perhaps.
*And no, that's not an oxymoron - there are, in fact, anime series that aren't over-the-top, believe it or not.

The main characters from Pact, re-interpreted as the main characters from Adventure Time. (So meta!)
PS: Blake's budding romance with Tiffany (in Pact) develops a new and intriguing dimension, when you compare it with Blake... err, Jake's 'relationship' with another Tiffany, in this episode of Adventure Time: http://adventuretime...orite_People
Continuing the Adventure Time/Pact crossover, here's Rose & Blake's encounter with Conquest, Lord of Toronto.
Come to think of it, even though it makes total sense for Conquest/Ice King to haul around a couple of penguin slaves, it could be interpreted as being, well... even more super-racist than the previous version of Conquest (http://mokkurkalfe.d...ronto-442531919). Is 'penguin' a racial slur used against Canadian Aboriginals? Oh, dear. Guess there's nothing to do, except try to make the next drawing even more racist. Didn't Wildbow have a bunch of Neo-Nazi supervillains in his previous web serial, Worm? Yes, yes he did.
