#629 - Not The Monster You're Looking For
*gasp* Finally the Guardian! :D
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.
A salamander, mayhaps, rather than a dragon? Considering the size difference.
it lokes like an ant to me
eep! *hides under duvet*
love the Monty Python reference
So we have the Guardian Beast and the Legendary Black Beast of Aaaaarrrrrggggghhhhh?
that guy again
The guardian is in another castle, I mean hill.
Also: Laughed very hard AND think it awesomely fearsome.
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.
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?)
Ford Prefect says:
Run away! Run away!
It's the beast of Arrrrgggggggggggggggggghhhhhhh!!!!
Anyone have a Holy Handgrenade?
Attack its antenna! Wait... Maybe it will become confused if Leaf shouts, "I am Malvenicus!"
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?
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!
¿? update time unknown?
As long as we have the "Legendary Black Beast of Aaaaarrrrrggggghhhhh?"
I think the guardian needs to watch out.
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?
Am I missing something?? or why is nobody worried about there not being a set time for the next update??
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.
is it just me or has mayerd horns goten smaller
Because we are seeing two front legs and one hind leg of a monster that is more of a salamander than a bunny?
@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!
You know, if they had let Leaf and Ayne grow up first, they could have just punted the Guardian into the trees.
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!
@Odo- perhaps it hunts at night? Or it hunts pixies? The whole 'shiny' thing has gotta be quite a temptation around here.
That's a pretty bad looking guardian, thing gives me the creeps for sure.
I'm surprised no one has made a Zelda reference yet. "Aim for the glowy yellow thing! That's its weak spot!!"
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
What happened guys?
you both ok?
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).
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.
ps: BUNNIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I saved a few from my cat. stupid feline is as bad as a pixie!
@Kinesthe just read what it says in the news section...
gah comic on queen's day
Alric... is that quote from Allistair of Dragon Age? If not, where? I KNOW i've read/heard that somewhere else...
I think I spelt Allist(er?) wrong. Maybe spell(ed) too.
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
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.
Furia Firelander says:
Wait a minute i suddenly realize, WHERE IS FEITH?
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.
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
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.
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?
Alric: I've got a theory it could be bunnies!
Or maybe migits?
but YES :P
seen that now!
Such a gnarly looking beast!
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.
This has to be the longest chapter yet. Or maybe it's just me.
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.
