Ahhhhh, the old video game spoof trope. Raccoon city looks a lot different in the EN universe though.
big difference between silent hill and Raccoon city. just saying.
You and I remember Raccoon city very differently….
I think it’s a Silent Hill reference rather that a Resident Evil reference, looks like pyramid head
So was Lothar the special surprise inside?
Oh god, Lothar’s expression on the last panel is killing me.
Virus is definitly the master of awesome facial expressions.
For crying out loud Lothar, just eat some candy bars or something
You know it’s bad when even the cyborg can’t liberate the cereal from its shelf….
hey, what does mean – three lines in the center of the strip?
poor Lothar. I didn’t knew what Loth very like cereal..sooo much XD
It’s action lines. He’s glancing over hi shoulder dramatically at the thing behind him.
There’s the Pyremid Head reference youguys were looking for.
Finally got the box open…and it was empty? WHAT KIND OF SICK PLACE IS THIS?
A place that is more terrifying than Freddy Kouger could ever hope to create.
Actually, I never found Kreuger that scary.
Same, just on a weird level. Yet he’s supposed to make your worst nightmares reality and kill you within them so you’d expect it to be of that level.
Lothar exhibited emotion!? and the nudist admitted he was scared!?
THIS REALLY IS A HORROR ARC!
The entire last panel is priceless.
They’re magically demented!
total Pyramid Head reference here, hehehehehe
yeah, i agree with ya,Polymer, that last panel IS priceless, hahahahahah, the look on lothar’s face is too much*breaks out laughing*
Gotta love Rogue continuing to do his job the entire time.
was gonna say something along the lines of those betting on the silent hill parody arc you got your money now pay for the snacks and drinks you owe us with it. but seeing it was lothar who managed to open the bloody box(not suprised with a chainsaw inside a hand) and he expresses emotions like that, and who rogue went scared he would have wetted his pants(if he had any :D ) il take enough with that for now. also love virus his facial expressions in last panel.
also a question to everyone else.
who betted something along the lines of someone or something sneaking up on rogue the moment he went on alone? i mean seriously its horror movie/game rule number 1 that if your alone theres a bigger chance something will sneak up on you.
While that bit is true in general rule of thumb, my mind also was following Pulp Fiction and that says everything bad that happens always happens in the same style of instance. So for the record to be said, a building/door is going to fall/collapse/close and it will be on Virus’ tail…
On an unrelated comic note: How many banners do you have cycling at the top now? I’ve counted like 4 now.
Hmm let’s see. EN crew, EN crew minus Rogue but with Wildfire, Rogue + Wildfire + Taikan masters, Lothar + family, B-team, Simmons and Schaefer. So I think six, may be one more I’m forgetting.
Haven’t seen the Taikan masters yet but that seems about all. I shall keep a mental record of this. Thanks Loth’.
Someone get Lothar some lucky charms!!!!!!!
Saw the hand on the shadowy figure first, assumed it was Lothar. Saw the head, and was like, wuh? Box-shaped Pyramid Head? Then saw the next panel and was less confused. Well played.
I’m guessing that just blasting the crap out of the box with Loth’s arm plasma cannon is out of the question?
And run the risk of destroying the precious cereal inside?
My thoughts exactly.
Could always borrow Rogue’s neon letter-opener/hedge trimmer/toast-and-slice/ reading light and buzz the top off the box. Minimal damage, and Lothar gets his cereal.

I should’ve known Lothar’d be the closest thing to pyramid head
HELL YES I WAS RIGHT!!! I knew a silent hill joke was comming and i made that point a few comics back :3 my pridictions are correct. except when their not
do you guys practice these facial expressions in real life, or are these just strokes of genious?
For a second I thought you were gonna go all out and make a pyramid head demon thing.
Then you did something better.
A childishly expressive Lothar who could easily be on par with either a Precious Moments doll or sad faced My Little Pony: FiM Sweetiebell. (look it up) Seriously, Lothar’s been getting pretty comically expressive these past few pages
He’s breaking down mentally without the carbs.
OMG. Lothar DAT FACE!! What’s an echidna gotta do to get some cereal around there!?
Let’s see… pay retail price at an approved retail outlet, enter the upc into the website… he does have a Cream account..no? Then he’ll need to get registered…
Yeah, it’s complicated…
Does anyone know what that yellow thing behind Virus in the last panel is?
He’s holding Lothar’s hat.
Oh, I see.
Why so serious, Rogue?
Why hasn’t Lothar looked for hidden room full of boxes with actual cereal in them behind the store counter yet?
I mean, you’d think that the place would have the merchandise on hand to give to the customers you legally buy it, right?
Pyramid Lothar is an excellent monster and I wish to see more of him.
Crap! Just realized! I forgot to make my weekly plea for a little Blasphemy!!!!!!

Well. I just found this on TVTropes and after reading all of the comics so far, I F*CKING LOVE THIS!!!
Do you know what you guys should do? After this – or the next – story arc, you should have the badass team collaborate with Eastwood’s team to take down some cultists. And then they get at each other’s throats. That’d be fucking awesome.
Yeah, we get a pretty good number of tropers around here.Welcome, wipe your feet, and be nice to the dumb people.
But… But… I don’t wanna =<
We have plenty of storylines planned, thanks.
Yeah, the one thing these guys are not lacking in is ideas. Crazy, convoluted ideas, sure, but that’s why we love them.
Whyyyyy there’s still no any new comix before the End of the Woooooorld???
I’ve been ill, sorry.
Some people have no compassion for artists… tsk, tsk…
*pats* Feel better Virus. You can’t die cause of the world ending feeling shitty.
same here, Vi. Fucking flu season…. x.x
This reminded me of something… you know who has to appear: COMMISSAR CIAPHAS CAIN, HERO OF THE IMPERIUM!
I would ask “who”, but I really don’t want to know anymore…
I’ve never read this book series – and I’m not entirely sure if I even want to. The things I’ve heard about it weren’t very encouraging. Eisenhorn or Gaunt – that are people who get things done without getting hammy titles.
I hope they kept some of the boxes, could save lives, y’know? Better san flacyakketz.
Last panel. Your making me wanna cuddle the characters again! You know how dangerous that is! Stop it!
Eerie empty town, opaque fog and monster with head cover dragging heavy weapon like knife…..yup Silent Hill reference alright.
