New Comics Every Weekday - Written by T Campbell & Phil Kahn - Illustrated by John & Jason Waltrip
How exactly does one “quench” a quest? Well okay, if the quest is for the perfect beer…
â€“verb (used with object)
1. to slake, satisfy, or allay (thirst, desires, passion, etc.).
2. to put out or extinguish (fire, flames, etc.).
3. to cool suddenly by plunging into a liquid, as in tempering steel by immersion in water.
4. to subdue or destroy; overcome; quell: to quench an uprising.
5. Electronics. to terminate (the flow of electrons in a vacuum tube) by application of a voltage.
I would go with definition two or four.
Yeah THAT’LL teach you to ask Erica questions.
But is a quest an object?
It is in a grammatical sense. That is probably the sense that dictionary.com is using.
It’s a noun, yeah.
Exactly. A quest is a search, not the object of a search. So one could go on a quest for a dragon, and then quench the dragon’s fires (def. 2). One could go on a quest for the White-Hot Iron of Dooooom and then quench it in holy water (def. 3).
Anyways, my annoying Grammar-Naziing aside, I love that last panel. “D’oh, you mean I actually have to do something to earn my rep?”
I’d say that definition 1, “satisfy,” works just fine. You can satisfy a search by finding what you’re looking for. Quest can also mean a journey, and you can overcome a difficult journey by reaching its end.
It was supposed to be a comical misuse of language, anyway.
Fair enough. And “quench” and “quest,” used together, do produce assonance, so that’s all right then.
They produce consonance as well.
OMG! It’s like he’s Mike Tyson or something.
Let me just say:
1) Your script is genius.
2) Your art is beautiful
3) You update on time! With HUGE full color updates!
You guys ROCK!
Bandit seems to be most excited about something in the third panel.
Also, the poor one armed boy…he most certainly can never pick an ax like Payet Best, but he could be a great drummer one day.
Poor kid, he could still be a singer!
Please, please, please tell me Payet leaves before they become famous. And then has to live in obscurity ever after, only making money when he sings songs about the famous group of which he was so nearly a part.
Bandit appears to have found somebody’s wallet. And it has money in it! Even better, they’re still carrying in it! Best day ever.
I almost feel sorry for him in that last panel. He looks like for a moment, he realizes how empty (and average) his own life really is.
