Well. This one kicked my butt. Sorry about that. The next one should be a piece of piss though.
I’ve broken my tongue when I tried to say it.
Oh,oh, Alan! Black stripe closed ” b e” in “webber”
And part of buble with broketonguetohell text
Okey, now that’s right.
The map of demon gates looks suspiciously like the map of London Underground :p
You’re hearing nothing right now, because the slow clap I’m giving you is so slow the gaps between claps lasts millennia.
Mind too long the gap, and the gap minds also unto you.
“Would Inquisitor Sands please report to the operations room immediately.”
I think that you can even see some rail tracks in the first panel.
Well… The London Underground IS the spawn of Satan…
Anyone else notice that the description/history to those Void tunnels is incredibly similar to Dungeon Siege 3? Likin’ the reference
so lets see the cultist this time are a shrimp, pelican, a mudkip(dont know what its called in real world so went with what came closest for me.) and a frog.
also thats quite the tongue twister you put in there tried it 4 times already to try and say it correctly.
also why virus oh my god face in last panel?
Tis an axolotl. The mudskipper is an entirely differant weirdass water creature.
thanks for telling me.
Not to mention a very nasty meme…
Well the elder gods do have a sense of humor after all. They said “What if we took down some evil cult out to destroy the world… (something similar)” and their the only ones who can.
IN fact if they don’t start senseless violence they will be slaughtered. As for the name… That’s common gift of the elder gods as it goes along with universal language and of course the gift of many tongs (Otherwise they couldn’t say it much less pronounce it at all.)
As I don’t have the gift of many thongs, I’ll settle for a few vovels.
Well…this won’t end well.
Well of course not! There is not one gal in that bunch of cultist.
How could a cult of an elder god be so crass as to forget to have at least one girl in their party when they wake up one of them.
All dressed in sea-fashioned attire, worship the Ocean, and call it’s name in Murloc. I’m sure, in the name of its people, the Daemon god is known as… Linda.
That’s not surprising.
The Hideous Hulking Lungfish, while creepy for little kids on summer camp, is far from a proper Demon God.
I’m presuming the speach bubbles are covering up a cheerful ‘You Are Here’ tag. :-)
Though I’m half expecting that Rogue is right to be a skeptic, that’s just a map of the sewer system itself, and everyone else is a loonie. ;-)
Oh boy. This cult seems to be a bunch of kooky yahoos similar to that Cool-Ade factory town, except the actual threat might very well be REAL and our heroes have come preemptively.
Obviously these Cultists are Welsh. They have NO trouble with pure consonant words!
Oh Gaia…let’s just hope the Mobian version of KB (of KB’s Madhouse) isn’t one of those cultists then or we’re all boned because his madness will consume all!
*gets confused looks*
Watch his countdowns. He uses the Welsh numbers for the number transitions. (Which I originally thought was some weird mix of German and Klingon at first.)
Why is that when I saw that gate, I immediately thought of Stargate?
I would’ve gone for a stile gate personally, but I keep getting told to get over it.
Heh, and if you look at each ‘chevron’, they’re surrounded by their OWN little stargate-esque pattern.
Double wormholes all they way, ‘cross the tracks
Look close. It’s a traditional dial-up connection to the dark gods. With a really big dial. No fancy-smanchy touch pads for these kids. they’re hard-core.
I hope they have someone with either very long legs or very powerful ones to dial that portal. I didn’t see a ladder anywhere in the lair.
Also, that receiver has probably been off the hook for thousands of years. I don’t think they’re going to get a tone unless they press the cradle a few times.
You can see a cultist looking at a control pannel shaped as smaller version of the “dial portal”, so my guess would be that you just dial on the smaller one to open the big one, or something along those lines.
I thought that was the handset, hence my ‘off the hook’ remark. There are two of them in the background of the second and third to last panels.
Looks like Virus was paying attention in class again.
And Rouge’s class was either incomplete or not being paid attention to, given his “meh” expression in the last panel.
Well, either that, or he so used to stuff like this, that he can’t find himself to give a shit.
Yeah, I keep forgetting that he took like four year of Daemonology. Also, that look on his face when he hears this thing’s name says “Oh, bloody hell!”
They are going to die faster than you can say ‘cthulhu fhtagn’ if something comes through. I hope someone is videotaping!
So they plan on summning chtu- Father Ocean from the bottom of the sea via void portal?
Am i the only one who reads this an think: water pressure?
Cause the water presure in the bottom of the ocean is pretty high…
What happens when you try to shove a large object through an insufficiently sized hole with said pressure behind it?
It goes through anyways! In spurts!
On second thought about how physics works, ignoring portal logic, wouldn’t they all get sucked in and the area to ‘pop’?
I’d be more worried about the deathless water demon-iety on the other side, honestly.
The Elderich Abomination is only a problem if it’s immune to explosive decompression.
It amuses me the axolotl is a miserable bastard.
Perhaps he was asked “so I herd u lik mudkips” just one too many times, along with the rest of the Internet.
I thought that version of Mobius has people shot for overusing a meme?
Hoi! That joke about philosophy students is slander, pure and simple! Just because the vast body of work they do has absolutely no real world effect, does not mean that they don’t _do_ work.
Honestly, we slave away, reading books and arguing amongst ourselves, and where’s our respect?
Also – is that a Yellow Pages?
Well, yes, but the Necroteleconomicon is known by many names.
Question: If my degree has philosophy-related classes, am I a philosophy student while studying them?
Whoooo lives in R’lyeh under the sea?
Great Dread Cthulhu!
Slimey and scaley and tenticled he…
Great Dread Cthulhu!
If eldritch ramblings be something you wish…
Ia fhtang Cthulhu!
Then head to Innsmouth and marry a fish!
Ia fhtang Cthulhi!
Ph’nglui mglw’nafh Cthulhu!
Ow. That was horrible. Hilariously horrible.
I am trying, so very hard, not to be amused by that, and failing miserably.
Did you just make that up? Because that’s great.
I did, but wouldn’t be surprised if somebody else did something similar.
I recall someone doing a Hakunah Matata version somewhere. Might have been on this comic. I forget.
Stargate AND the London Underground references? AWESOME!
Does anyone else here read the pelicans in an Ed Wynn voice?
I didn’t, but I might now.
is Virus looking on in horror that these guys are trying to drown the planet, or that he wasted his time having to stop a cult full of idiots?
Just because these guys are morons doesn’t mean they can’t cause real, lasting damage.
true, I guess the fact that they can’t be taken seriously makes them even more dangerous, since I doubt anyone would think of them as a real threat
Things tend to get scary once morons try making up for their intellectual deficiency with effort. A good example is to imagine the difference between a guillotine made by a proper craftsman and then imagine one made by a lunatic.
Which one of those two guillotines would involve flamethrowers and a blade so keen it could cut sunlight
The one built by Bloody Stupid Johnson.
I would argue that he wouldn’t build a guillotines that could such a thing, that would be his apple peeler, or possibly his attempt to revolutinize the letter box.
His *guillotine* would probably be an inch wide and 340 feet tall.
Leonard of Quirm has sketched out a ‘Device for Rapidly and Painlessly Removing Heads Then Incinerating the Remains’ (with detailed parts list), but maintains that it is purely for researching the idea, as no one would be so cruel as to actually put it into use.
Neither. One would be a poorly improvised blade (cheese grater with sharpened edge, with bricks duct-taped to give it weight) and a bunch of bells and whistles that the blade sounds out while on the way down. The person would be secured in place by rubber cement facing upwards with their hands free, so they could sacrifice them to halt the blade. It would be raised and dropped again until their arms no longer function and it cuts through the unwashed neck. The other would be French.
There are few things more dangerous than an idiot with power.
looks alot like a stargate to me….
A Cthulhu! cult?
Oh smeging hell.
I see this ending very badly…
Which is good for us in a way.
Rather interested in the 5th cultist thats managed to avoid the argument so far…
apathy, or actual competance.
The book of Half-Life returns.
1) Vi proves, once again, to be more learned then he let’s on. Kind of a ‘crouching moron, hidden bookworm’.
2) Stargate. 8)
3) Oooo! An axocoatle (sp?). You don’t see those very often in the various media.
4) Don’t know much about the mythos, but is this a Cthulu parody?
5) With as intelligent as Vi has been latley, that expression has me very, very worried.
6) Rogue. :P
Yup it is a Cthulhu parody. The head cultist “stars alignments” speech is a variation of the description of Cthulhu’s awakening.
For those interested in such things; I believe it’s pronounced “shug ju-ku-gert mung-wut”.
