New Comics Every Weekday - Written by T Campbell & Phil Kahn - Illustrated by John & Jason Waltrip
Gravedust would have us believe that it’s been a jam-packed three weeks. He’s just conveniently excluded the “Nothing much happened today….Sat on the couch eating Cheetos….Took a dump; it was orange” entries from this little montage.
i do not think gravedust would right about his poop, but the poop of others, and relate it to their personalities…..
“Syr’Nj’s droppings are of a pellet-like shape and have an odor reminiscent of cedar. Is this the result of her desire to appear tough but flexible around humans? Further study is warranted.”
self-fertilising? actually, that’s wrong on a couple of levels.
She’s at 1 on the Bristol Stool Scale. Yup, they have standards for poo. You learn these things when a loved one has Crohn’s Disease.
i’m very sorry to hear that.
S’okay. She’s very tuned into what she needs to do to make sure it doesn’t get worse.
Anyway, I didn’t mean to bring the conversation down. :-) Both she and I think that the fact they have a poop scale is hilarious.
bang. that was a fast week. i hope we didn’t miss any important characterisation.
countless applies to three when the average peasant has trouble counting past one.
also, site went down about ten minutes before update again. is that…an issue?
An infiniskelion is a lot harder to draw.
That is the CUTEST ancient fire-god. I bet he just wants cuddles!
The great tragedy being that since it is surrounded by fire, it will never receive the cuddling it so deeply desires… at least not for very long.
Until one day Fire God meet a kindred spirit, another transcendent being who knows the pain of separation and the longing that comes with elongated loneliness. Another deity tarnished with sorrow: the Asbestos Goddess.
This Lifetime original movie ends tragically but predictably when he dies of supercancer, and she finds comfort in the infinite arms of her best friend.
Ironically the Fire God’s cancer is from his continual chain smoking, rather than exposure to carcinogens.
I love you people so much…
We love you too, and promise not to give you supercancer, hyperaids, or mega-ultra-lymphogranuloma venereum.
Continuous chain smoking IS exposure to carcinogens.
Asbestos is a carcinogen as well. Just not the same type of carcinogen as in cigarettes.
How do you think he GOT the cancer? Duh.
I read that as “kindling spirit”.
Well at least now we know which timeframe some of their previous adventures fit into at least.
My reader-senses are telling me we’re being led up to the continuation of what for a better term I will call the Orc Chapter.
My reader-senses are telling me our intrepid adventurers are extremely underpaid.
I must say, my first thought was, “Countless limbs? There’s only three of them!”
You try drawing an infinite amount of limbs.
I feel compelled to point out that they never mentioned infinite limbs, just “countless” ones. That could mean several thousand, and drawing such is accomplishable, though it may take several months.
Considering that the Order is, in Gravedust’s own words, “cult-like,” it can be assumed that the general population of the order is of lower intelligence by design to make for easier mind control through simple slogans and buzzwords. That said, the logo could be part of an initiation test: “How many legs do you see?” “Duhhhhhhh…whutz legz?” “Ok, you’re in. Next!”
Everybody knows that logos have to be iconic.
You should count less.
Now I’m wondering exactly how powerful they were *prior* to their meeting up. The fact that they’re foiling ancient gods and cults in 20 days sounds as if they grinded their way to powerfulness before their initial meeting.
Well, the Fire God encounter was really just with an inept shaman in the middle of summoning him, and the cultists were pretty stupid as well.
So next we get to hear exactly how they landed themselves in a cell of conspicuously rising water? I kinda want to hear what led up to that little adventure.
Does anyone else notice that the Countless Limbs symbol would resemble a certain emblem usually associated with Nazis if it had another arm?
Alternately, if you change the arms to legs you would the emblem for the Isle of Mann.
You got me.
Having three limbs, in most cases legs, circling a crest was a common coat of arms. The pattern is refereed to as a triskelion. Its origins come from ancient Greece.
Or, y’know, not at all, and a hell of a lot more like a triskelion.
uhmmm…. The emblem for the Isle of Man IS a triskelion.
I think this thread is on its last leg..
So, I guess that makes this a farewell to arms?
are you pulling my leg?
I think he was referring to the Swastika comparison, not to the Isle of Man one. ;P
Right. The way these quotes are nesting, I think you misunderstood. I was replying to Starphoenix, not SwitchbladeKult.
Byron always likes to get his hands dirty. Always wanting to get a leg up on everyone.
What is it with religious/semi-religious organizaions in Gastonia and body parts?
It made more sense than Spaghetti and Meatballs? (at the time)
The “Cult of the One Fingered Hand” are the next to fall!
Are they an offshoot of the Brotherhood of the Particularly Rude Gesture?
I don’t know, I thought the Cult of the Limited Torsos would be their next enemy.
Real nice way to bridge the time gap!
Clearly this is important to Byron’s backstory… Wait, I know! He wields axes. Axes are primarily used on trees. Trees have limbs. Thus, an Order of Countless Limbs would be his natural enemy. Bayen, Brayen, get ready for a lot of chopping ahead!
I think you’re going out on a limb here.
Just trying to branch out my thinking.
I wonder if we’re actually going to go through those two quests or simply jump to a point when they were already done as we’ve pretty much seen their resolutions at the beginning of the comic and GD here just provided us with a wider context so it’s kinda come full circle but in reverse.
I don’t think running through the rest of these quests would provide interesting plot pacing.
Aw, damn it alt text, you ruined the logo! It would have been countless if you just ignored it.
Actually, there’s a rightw ing organization in South Africa that has a three legged swastika.
But as for the triskelion, in certain medieval folklore, it refers to a hero who could run very fast, as if he had three legs. Also, if you imagin the symbol running, it would be rotating, thus making the limbs appear countless.
“Byron showed a degree of resentful familiarity with them as he beat them with his fists. I did not inquire”
So the first time Byron actually goes all badass on someone, and -doesn’t- get knocked out… We don’t get to see it.
“… I have never witnessed a volcanic eruption. … I am glad to have seen one…” ?
