ohgods it’s late i have to sleep
Can’t say I particulary blame Loth, actually…those parties ARE rage/murder inducing.
Excuse me whilst I maim the DJ.
Best part of the page is Eastwood hitting on that fine lady, who looks rather bored at the attempt…. Keep at it buddy! I BELIEVE IN YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! T_T
It looks like he’s pretty drunk there, and we know he’s bad enough at it when sober. At least then he’s coherent enough to be offensive.
If tis an office party then i”m sure that she is all ready used to him.
True, if ’tis indeed an office party.
So much win.
I’m loving these random one page comic! They are so awesome!
Lothar! Wait! TAKE ME WITH YOU!
You guys have been WAITING for an excuse to draw this, haven’t you?
I am GLAD that was a dream! Though I have to admit, for a second there I misunderstood the Lothar cutting own head off as a second Lothar or someone with that type of Bionic arm with chainsaw slicing it off…Hyuuu!
dream? no no no, the last panel is in the afterlife, that’s lothor’s personal hell.
Now that would make an interesting spinoff series.
that is now canon to me, i don’t care what the creators say.
So is it a work Halloween party or just one some ass random guy came up with and invited them to?
Judging by the coats and hats, and the orange-and-black balloons and streamers, i most definitely say those are co-workers at a company Halloween party.
But these guys are British no? They don’t do Halloween
What the hell do you mean, the Brits don’t do Halloween?
Thought it was an American thing.
Totally pissed off with the Aussies right now – all of the sudden Halloween is something we do here – how did that happen? Were not answering the front door today. Fuck-em all. This is Australia, and America can keep their day for themselves. Next thing you know we’ll be celebrating bloody 4th of July. Nothing wrong with American holidays, no, congrats on your independence but its an American holiday.
I guess us Aussies just take any excuse to have a party.
“I guess us Aussies just take any excuse to have a party.”
And I can’t find a damned thing wrong with that. :D
Except the whole concept of an excuse. What do you need one of those for?
We certainly didn’t used to. Ten or fifteen years ago, that was pretty much the British response. However, Halloween is contagious, and though we don’t adopt it with the same zeal and passion as the US, no longer do we deride it either.
From a webcomic point of view, though, it’s mostly just fun to draw characters in costume and shit. So there is that. Most of what I see in real life is the supermarkets trying to sell Halloween related stuff.
Halloween webcomics tend to be fun , because many of them have a tradition of dressing their characters up as other comics’ characters- the most common being the “Penny Arcade” duo.
Then everyone else just does something fun and unusual, like this.
I dunno about you joyless southerners, but we did Halloween quite enthusiastically in suburban NW England when I were a kid. Probably not as enthusiastically as the Americans, but still. My youth definitely had costumes and sweets and parties and vegetable-based lanterns (but turnip rather than pumpkin).
Actually, turnips were the ORIGINAL Jack-O-Lanterns.
I’m afraid I don’t understand. What is this “joy” you speak of?
I have a cousin by the name of Joy. Is this to what you refer?
You should listen to Halloween by Stephen Lynch.
It might give some insight as to why some people don’t like it. I myself am just peeved the being out till 4am ain’t common anymore, making a full round through town, comming home with two garbage bags worth *I MEAN THE BIG ONES, NO JOKE*, those were fun years, to bad kids nowadays don’t get to know that kind of feeling
I am a steggo saurus!
I’m sorry, I just really wanted to add to this long line of responses.
Also, in the beginning didn’t the US just make a mockery of Halloween to get money out of its people?
(Holy crap, I turn my back for a moment and this happens….)
And the US probably did, considering how consumer-based it is. I just figured there were different versions of Halloween around the world, considering how many of its traditions stem from pagan religious practices.
My thoughts exactly! Halloween? This is Australia! Since when do we bloody celebrate bloody Halloween?
You strike me as the sort of bloke that would suggest the banning or support the banning of Halloween in Australia…
I hate Halloween, but that’s just stupid. Not saying you ARE that sort of bloke, but it seems like it so far. Not sure you’re Australian, though.
Halloween is celebrated pretty much…everywhere. Although, I’m pretty sure the original Day of the Dead was celebrated in…somewhere in Europe. XD Anyways, it’s not just an American holiday.
The day of the dead, at the beginning of November, has nothing to do with Halloween. All Hallow’s Eve is a day for “out with the old” before November 1st, All Saint’s Day. The idea behind the modern celebration started when children would go door-to-door, begging candy, money, or other treats from the homeowner, and they would say a prayer on the home in exchange.
Originally people believed that Evil Spirits would try to ruin the Most Holy of Days where they celebrated the Hallowed Souls (Saints), known as All Hallows day. But, since that was such a Holy Day, the Spirits could not intervene directly. So they had to lay their traps and play their tricks the day before, All Hallow’s Eve, in an attempt to make everyone too miserable to celebrate.
Therefore, Halloween has it’s roots in Catholicism.
Also, the Jack-O-Lantern, as stated above to originally have been a Turnip carved out, was designed to keep those Unholy Spirits away from the house of the bearer by scaring them. So that the residents would not fall for traps and tricks, and be able to celebrate the Saints the next day.
Ahhh, party-induced homicidal instincts. We’ve all been there, haven’t we?
1. Get 1 drink, spill it on my shirt (so I smell drunk).
2. Pour out my drinks fill them with water( wait, I’m going somewhere with this)
3. Make it quite obvious how drunk I am’
4.Entice everyone else to drink ’til they drop
5 Once everyone’s passed out, steal their wallets.
6. Steal all the booze and food.
7. Take it all home, lock the door, and have my own party.
To be perfectly honest, when I saw ‘It finally happened’ my mind flicked immediately to the song ‘I’m Going Slightly Mad’ by Queen. http://youtu.be/Fb-3seZSQ_Q
The mental image of Lothar snapping and suddenly singing that is hilariously surreal.
Guess this comic needed to fit its’ blood and gore quota SOMETIME soon.
Huh…I honestly think this is the goriest comic yet. Graphic depictions of our “heroes” getting their knees broken, sawed in half, heads blown off, caved in, and cut off. I love it.
Sure, we’ve seen decapitations and brutal killings before, but those were mostly off-panel. This is our first on-screen depiction of brutality, and it’s awesome.
I was in glee club… had to do the time warp… wasn’t so bad the first few times… but then… WE DID THE TIME WARP AGAIN…
It’s just a jump to the left…
one questions the wisdom of dressing up as hellish creatures when dealing with members of the ‘quisition.
For a moment I thought this would be the start of a new story arc, it got that serious in its tone. But apperently they decided it would make a good dream/visual metaphor sequence for the intense hatred from Lothar about the party.
While it’s probably highly impractical, I still find it weird every time I read a comment you leave 4ND 1T DO3SN’T LOOK L1K3 TH1S! >:]

You’re actually also missing the referance; gC is the screenname of a character in another comic (Homestuck, at http://mspaintadventures.com), 4ND SP34KS 1N TH3 NUM3R4LS OF THE BL1ND PROPH3TS (413), not full-on 1337-5p34k.
Not that the site is up at the moment – hurricanes and data centres don’t mix. Arguably this is to your advantage, as reading it is kinda like getting lost in TvTropes – takes a hell of a time to get out the other side.

Surprizingly, Eastwood seems to be the only one who’s completely blitzed. You’d think at least Virus would be too.
Er, i’m not disagreeing, but what is giving people the impression that Eastwood is “completely blitzed?” he’s just standing there with a barely-touched cup of beer, hitting on a chick dressed as what i THINK is a devil. It’s not like there’s bubbles next to his head or he has a blush in his cheeks, he’s just… standing there, being eastwood.
I could be wrong, it might just be the eyes. Or that’s not nearly his first cup.
-He doesn’t look like he’s drunk, he looks like he’s in pain.
+-What? No he doesn’t.
I laughed less at Harry’s imminent strike out and more at Rogue in the back just eating some snacks and looking apathetic as hell.
As 100 other people will say: I would do the same
#1: I would do the same.
#2 Would do the same AS a guy.
Lothar really cares about Eastwood, Virus, and Rogue. He may have killed them all but he killed himself immediately afterwards so he followed his friends to the end :)
Or, he was just so overcome by the horror of being at that party he couldn’t bear to live another minute. Besides, crushing their heads under his fist doesn’t exactly scream “caring”.
Hm. Reminds me of the beginning episodes of the second Weiss Kreuz series. XD ‘Cept there wasn’t a party, it was just to trick the enemy. I didn’t really like that season…
Graphic murder, Loth. Nice effect, cutting your own head off.
They are all wearing costumes of dark beings….. hmmmm oh my tyrus! they have gone over to the darkside and joined with the cultists
Ugh, parties, those places where you have to be around people. I try not to leave the Manufactorum for anything except Mountain Dew.
Also, New England got hit with a hurricane recently (And for the second year in a row). 55 people were killed, New York City is closed, and lots of people don’t have electricity right now. Our Halloween has been postponed to November 6th.
This exact same thing happened in 2011 with Hurricane Irene. Luckily I made preparations to protect the Manufactorum so I still have electricity. Thank you Omnissiah, fuck you mother nature.
It wasn’t just New York and New Jersey. It’s reaching all the way from the Appalachians into Canada. For those unaware, This storm wiped out our East Coast here in the United States.
It was headed north, and missed the U,S. entirely- But then it met with an Arctic storm, FUSED with it, and the whole goddamn thing grew and TOOK A LEFT TURN. Nobody knows how in the hell it managed that. I’m fine, being in the Central U,S., but this country’s going nuts. This is being touted as the worst storm on record. Imagine a hurricane- frozen. Lothar’d love it.
Also, there are fires that wipe out entire neighborhoods.
Sandra/Sandy fracking sucks
Yeah, I’m in Colorado, and we got that huge wildfire. My guess is? Earthquake’s next.
Na its the sun getting blacked out next
This is a great party.
It’s just a jump to the left!
(And then a step to the riiiiiiight~)
Hey ! I said it first!
That’s okay. We can all do the Time Warp. : D
You bring your knees in tiiiight!
(Eastwood certainly aced that part.)
Hexas. Chainsaw. Massacre.
If not the music, would thing the thought of Eastwood getting lucky might justify a murder suicide rampage. The world has gone mad I say!
Polymer … out of 60 comments (now 61) 18 are yours. That’s almost a third….you sure are active on this chat!
Yeah… they told me the same thing on some other webcomics…. I think I managed to tick off the guy at “Crazy Sunshine”…called me a spambot…
Haha, sorry friend, but that’s pretty funny.
What’s Crazy Sunshine about, btw? something I might enjoy?
See for yourself @ TvTropes : http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Webcomic/CrazySunshine
Many people here read it, I’ve noticed.
Damn it, I had a way to give myself immunity to TVtropes, but I have tabs on my browser today.
WHY would you want immunity to TvTropes? But I think you’d all like CS. Same amount of mental patients in the comments, and you’ll recognize some of them.
Sorry. More accurately, immunity to it’s tab-explosion powers. When browsing on a 3DS, I can’t open multiple windows or tabs and can stay focused on the page I’m viewing.
Not to say I don’t love TVtropes. I just have to stay off it when trying to focus :p
Your page led me to 1-clip-magazine. *glare* |:( *glare*
For some reason, Eastwood’s leg getting kicked inwards grosses me out more than the rest of that sequence.
Not sure if that’s a bad thing.

Yeah, office parties are only fun if you actually like your co workers. If not, its just like regular work, except everyone is even more annoying than usual
Loth…if they start playing songs by Taylor Swift, RUN AND NEVER LOOK BACK!
As opposed to Celine Dion?
Your picture is that of the Soulthirster, your argument is both invalid and corrupt.
By the way, I just spent the better part of an hour finding the introductory arc for the Dark Gods just so I could be sure I was getting his name right.
The Inquisition appreciates your dedication to research of the Dark Gods. And marks you for further observation and questioning.
Hey, if you’re gonna do something wrong… do it RIGHT.
Better than me. I kept getting their name wrong in scripts and notes.
Better than me. I seem to be stuck with the Flesh Worm. :p
If anyone can dare take my comments seriously, it’s because their icon is Kevin.
This is the best Halloween post yet! Absolutely love it!
From now on, we’ll be able to look at all of gC’s posts after November 2nd and say, “Damn it Silver!”
1 F33L SO LOV3D. >:]
You know, maybe I’ll make this into a fun, one time thing I did. That way we can all get back to a somewhat same comment section, and won’t have to insert TH3 NUM3R4LS OF TH3 BL1ND PROPH3TS everywhere.
Spoilsport. What fun is there in sanity?
OH W3LL, 1F YOU 1NS1ST. 4S FOR YOUR COMM3NT, S4N1TY 1S FOR SUCK3RS. >:]
And those who haven’t seen the end of the world 82 times.
WH4T W3R3 TH3Y L1K3? >:]
Oh, you know. Lots of explosions, people imploding on themselves and forming black holes, eventually planets gaining enough mass to become stars for a brief moment before the entire universe is one big black hole (except for those who made it outside (82 time-copies of me and counting)), then everything just… winks out of existence. Very entertaining to watch. Bring deepfried popcorn, or puppy guts.
Lothar had fun once. It was awful.
Next time, Loth should stay home with Blasphemy. Where is the little hellspawn, anyways?
Yeah, I want to see more of the chao.
Spoiler Alert: Virus gets a second, Loth throws it at a Soul Thirster Deamon, it and Blasphemy hook up and East is left holding the egg.
hee hee, you’d think that by 2012, the folks at my church would recognize pyramid head and slenderman beatin the tar outta pedobear, but the larps continue. Fall fest ftw.
basiclly me and my bros taking advantage of the fact that our church elders dont know the internet very well for cosplay.
Ah, Now it makes sense. It was a little out of context given its way past halloween and has nothing to do with the comic so I was left scratching my head.
haha yep im late to everything asked a girl to the prom, only to realize its graduation day. *sigh*
Lets be lonely together *plays the worlds smallest violin*
Exactly. And the basketballs that smell like green were a great addition to puking cats and french fries. Seventy-one.
OMG, Dude. Pics, please. XD Gotta see this.
Pictures, or it never happened.
HAHA no. we’re still regretting last year. lets just say that fat subzero and rorshach (certain i spelled that wrong) with a green trench cause massive internet backdraft……… the trolls. THEIR EVERYWHERE!!!
You should start uploading the full-res images of these, I’d love to see them in more detail. I think I remember you had a link to a higher resolution for a page you did a while back, might have had the dialogue cut, as well.
Just my two cents.
Huh. I just realized that even though I have a Gravatar now, it didn’t change that much. It’s still a purple-and-white cat.
