Edgard says:

*gasp* Finally the Guardian! :D

Stardrake says:

So a bait-and-switch from Monty Python, eh?

Furia Firelander says:

WAAAAAAAAh, waith, waht, A DRAGON?

Darius Drake says:

Hello, if you would please stop salviating, we may be able to hold a conversation.

KBKarma says:

A salamander, mayhaps, rather than a dragon? Considering the size difference.

d says:

it lokes like an ant to me

eekee says:

eep! *hides under duvet*

Sajen16 says:

love the Monty Python reference

P-chu says:

So we have the Guardian Beast and the Legendary Black Beast of Aaaaarrrrrggggghhhhh?

that guy again says:

The guardian is in another castle, I mean hill.

Anakha says:


Also: Laughed very hard AND think it awesomely fearsome.

MadMann135 says:

Best bait and switch.


A imagine a bunny could be VERY terrifying if you're about the same size as the grass it eats. Leaf's in green, he has a right to be scared.

l says:

Darius Drake: It's not saliva. It's BLOOD!!!!(creepy music)

Bunny blood. Poor bunny... It's family, gone forever... You can nearly see it's tears... (do bunnies have the ability to cry?)
or somthing

Ford Prefect says:

Run away! Run away!

It's the beast of Arrrrgggggggggggggggggghhhhhhh!!!!
Anyone have a Holy Handgrenade?

Phenoca says:

Attack its antenna! Wait... Maybe it will become confused if Leaf shouts, "I am Malvenicus!"

Watsuki says:

Oh, c'mon, if the bunny was dying he wouldn't bother to carve "augh!" he'd just... doesn't work very well, does it?

Watsuki says:

Now if only they could've worked a Trogdor reference into this comic too... wait, is that fire coming from hid mouth? Somebody find some peasents, we have heads to light!

Edgard says:

? update time unknown?

Hornet says:

As long as we have the "Legendary Black Beast of Aaaaarrrrrggggghhhhh?"
I think the guardian needs to watch out.

Alric says:

I've got a theory it could be bunnies!

Bunnies arent just cute like everybody supposes,
They got them hoppy legs and twitchy little noses,
And whats with all the carrots?
What do they need such good eyesight for anyway?
Bunnies, Bunnies, it must be bunnies!

Ford Prefect says:

Has anyone thought that, due to the sizing proportion, the guardian, if that is it, is about the size of a (small) iguana?

Edgard says:

Am I missing something?? or why is nobody worried about there not being a set time for the next update??

Odo says:

Often there is no update time specified for a while. That's why no one is worrying.

What I'm wondering is why are we seeing three sets of claws coming over the hill and why does a diurnal, land-based creature need a lure-lamp like a deep-sea fish? I'm sure all will be discovered.

d says:

is it just me or has mayerd horns goten smaller

Winterbay says:

Because we are seeing two front legs and one hind leg of a monster that is more of a salamander than a bunny?

Rose says:

@Alric: Quoting Buffy The Vampire Slayer eh? ^^
I still think the bunny is the evil guardian. I'll betcha that that red creature-thing isn't even that much of a big "ohmygoddon'tkillme!". And yes, I believe that is a normal expression for something scary x)

Love the art! Keep it up!

Someguy says:

You know, if they had let Leaf and Ayne grow up first, they could have just punted the Guardian into the trees.
Guardian football.

Ultrainventor says:

what the...! TAKE COVER! BREAK OUT THE TANKS! what, no tanks? umm, then TAKE OUT YOUR 21Es! none of those either? well, I guess enchanted arrows will do...

ps: Woah! gnarly dude. ok enough surfer talk. another good strip!

Lecs says:

@Odo- perhaps it hunts at night? Or it hunts pixies? The whole 'shiny' thing has gotta be quite a temptation around here.

Netflix Canada says:

That's a pretty bad looking guardian, thing gives me the creeps for sure.

Zela says:

I'm surprised no one has made a Zelda reference yet. "Aim for the glowy yellow thing! That's its weak spot!!"

Osk says:

It must be very scared of pxies, they all want to take the shiny. And yeah, the guardian doesnt seem that impressive, if you put it back in perspective

Kinesthe says:

14 days?

What happened guys?
you both ok?

Ultrainventor says:

maybe the guardian is like a pixie in the fact that its size is reletive to those who see it? and right, aim for the eyes, the lure, or wait until it opens its mouth and throw a frag down its throat (or a pesky pixie).

Ultrainventor says:

scratch that. if my theory to its size is correct, it would take a cruiser's missile right down the throat to destroy it. that might not even do more than give it a stomachache, as it is probably immortal. GAAHH there I go again.

Ultrainventor says:

ps: BUNNIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I saved a few from my cat. stupid feline is as bad as a pixie!

Edgard says:

@Kinesthe just read what it says in the news section...

Osk says:

gah comic on queen's day

Watsuki says:

Alric... is that quote from Allistair of Dragon Age? If not, where? I KNOW i've read/heard that somewhere else...

Watsuki says:

I think I spelt Allist(er?) wrong. Maybe spell(ed) too.

Watsuki says:

By the way, anyone else notice the fallen leaf in the middle of the hill on the right there? Coincidence? Well, probably, but with these guys you never know :p

hkmaly says:

Ultrainventor: Hmmm ... Sorcer-Mecha-Sayan "Fury" Leaf probably does have cruiser's missiles. As a small weapon. Still, I suppose that throwing pixie down his throat would be more destructive.

aj26 says:

stupid... cliffhanger!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Furia Firelander says:

Wait a minute i suddenly realize, WHERE IS FEITH?

Alric says:

Watsuki: Quote is from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Specifically Season 6, Episode 7 - Once More With Feeling.

All: Oh, Alien and Mith are in the process of moving house - why the long update.

Rose says:

Aaah, thanks Alric.
Well I hope they finish moving around stuff soon, because that big dragon thing doesn't look too friendly. Is that blood by it's mouth? O.o

Watsuki says:

Ah-ha! Thanks Alric. Need to re-watch that series... good times. Has nothing to do with this comic though, sorry mith and third, I won't abuse your submit section too often.

Watsuki says:

Wait... no, somehow I said Third but I meant Alien. Perhaps 3:47 am is not the best time to be posting. You guys have an edit option I'm missing?

Pathanos says:

Alric: I've got a theory it could be bunnies!

Or maybe migits?

but YES :P

Kinesthe says:


seen that now!

Lyth says:

Such a gnarly looking beast!

Kuyselle Goldword says:

BIG, SHARP, POINTY TEETH! *fingers in front of mouth*

Ford Prefect says:

Hhhhhey, I just had a thought. Was that "Here's Ronny" thing in the old comic a reference to The Shining? Just curious.
Sorry to randomly say that, it just popped into my head.

Thurhame says:

This has to be the longest chapter yet. Or maybe it's just me.

Ultrainventor says:

AH HA! Maybe if they managed to extract carbon from the grass and sulfur from the ground and compress it, they could make a makeshift gunpowder and then hollow out one of the blades of grass for a barrel! then they could stuff the gunpowder into the grass and put a small rock in there, punch a small hole for access to the powder, and then leaf could use his furies to light it and presto! a makeshift mini-cannon!

Now the only problem is that a round projectile looses it's velocity notoriously fast, not to mention the grass might explode or burn, and there is also a problem as to how to extract the sulfur from the ground and the carbon from the grass. crud, there I go again. I haven't posted for some time so I guess I am making up for it with an extra long monologue. Carbon! C! flammable! semi-conductor! black! brittle! non-metal! Solid at room temp! Four valence electrons! combines with oxygen to form either carbon dioxide, CO2, or carbon monoxide, CO! OK, I think that is enough.
