Thai Foon. Ha.
Accurately describes the storm that occurs at the end if digesting Thai food.
Or someone’s played Epic Spell Wars.
With the force of a great Thai Foon
Is that a Hand of Glory or just a really bizarre scratching implement?
Damn now I’m hungry, better call Pizza Hub.
Oooh, Hand of Glory. good call
It’s the cursed monkey wishing-fist from that simpsons halloween episode.
Seriously, he’s trying EVERYTHING.
Said monkey wishing-fist is a reference to the short story “The Monkey’s Paw”. In it, a couple is given a monkey’s paw that will grant them three wishes, each with horrible, ironic consequences. First they wish for some money to pay off their house. Their son dies in a factory accident and they get a health insurance payout. Their second wish is for their son to be brought back to life, and someone starts knocking on their door. When the woman tries to open the door, the man realizes that his son was horribly maimed by the accident, so he wishes him dead again. The woman opens the door to find no one there.
It was also used in an episode of “The Monkees,” which was the first thing that popped into my head… ;-) Cue wacky music video in which everything is resolved 3 minutes later!
Just how much is a hand of glory from Pizza Hub?
And does it come with Sinna-stix?
A hand of glory would have a candle in it.
Damn. When you can’t even shift things along with a Monkey’s Paw…
Black magic and pad thai make H.R. something something…
I cannot like this comment enough! (Ift here was a like button)
Black magic and Pad Thai make H.R. love his craft?
Very nicely done.
AHHHHH!!! IS THAT HIS NAME REFERENCE?!
Have I missed that this WHOLE TIME?!?!
…no it’s H.P. let me go crawl into my hole of shame now.
I don’t think i’d ever noticed before how much like Bandit she looks…
New favorite character.
I like the skull with the dribbly candlewax. Very old-school necromancer.
carol’s a blu spy
Oh sweet tap-dancing Jesus, does this panel speak to me.
I think that either he has started moving beyond humanity or else he’s become secluded to the point he’s manifesting cabin fever. He also should be doing a better job of cleaning up after himself, it’s not like he can bring a janitor in here to do it for him.
I also think that whoever did layout for this page could be doing some heavy business in album art. Is that all Phil?
He’s just suffering from a case of chronic basement dwellism.
Second panel screensaver.
Whatever substance HR is on now, I kind of want some of that. Clearly top of the line stuff.
Yeah, no, he needs a shower and a shave. Order of that is optional, but a shower might help him brainstorm wise too. Lots of people get their best ideas in the shower.
So, bad thing about Monkey’s Paw, you inevitably end up using the last wish to undo the damage your first two wishes created.
Good things about Monkey’s Paw, it’s great for reaching the top shelf and man has never MADE a better back-scratcher.
Now I know who Bandit is.
HR’s linked into the game without the bubble. Somehow. That’s what I think… and he can’t turn it off…
HR to fans :
“NOTHING IS OVER !! NOTHING !! You just don’t turn it off ! You asked me, I didn’t ask you !”
What the heck is Mr Basement Recluse trying to do ?
He is a basement recluse spider, building a web of intruige.
Love the center (2nd) panel.
Note that the feathers, voodoo dolls, and garlic cloves are in quantities of five.
Whoa! Didn’t even catch that!
good lord, he’s gone round the bend. Pack it up, Sepia land is going away now.
The final twist to everything is that HR’s actually a mad seer locked in a dungeon, and sepia world is just his fantasy as he watches the events in arkerra move along through his visions.
It seems like you accidently typed “Drving” instead of “Driving” on panel two. Just wanted to let you know.
So they did.
Just noticed the box of fries with the upside-down “golden arches”.
Now that’s just whack, yo.
(after a bit of googling, it seems that “burger world” is a rather universal parody)
All he needs is a pick-me-up.
All anyone else needs is for him to clean his room, take a damn shower, and put on clothes he hasn’t been wearing for a week.
Well that explains why nothing’s working out for our ambiguously morally aligned CEO.
Those never work right.
I’d like to point out the thing that made me creep the hell out in this page.
The Monkey’s Paw/Hand of Glory was one – that in and of itself is just a scary thing.
But HR’s body language, the way he arches towards her in panel 5…
That made me hunch up like he was gonna punch ME.
Damn good job there. HR is seriously losing his puffin stuff.
Thank you, Hawk. I’m pleased with how it turned out as well. Coming up with and drawing the various occult items was indeed creepy fun. It may interest everyone to know, I penciled this page on Halloween night, so I was very inspired. a Boo!
someone oughta give H.R. a hand with that mess….
This conversation cannot end well. She should get out of dodge.
(formation of gooseflesh, long, cold shudder of trepidation)
