I’m just nitpicking, but that second comma should probably be a full stop? Otherwise that’s one really long sentence.
Also, loved Virus’ artwork. There’s just something about little stick-figure gods.
Yeah, I think there should be a ‘.’ after “but there’s lots of smaller ones”.
Normally, I’d agree, but right now, I don’t think Virus is bothering to pause to breathe etc. so here, it probably would be one long sentence
since he’s currently scared out of his mind.
also, the gods are adorable. that is all.
If he’s not bothering to pause, then there shouldn’t be a comma, since commas are a pause to breathe.
Ahriman and Mort whacking him with canes is the best thing.
They’re tire irons.
I figure the Patterner would use a crowbar.
Something about the forces of good and evil just whaling on the poor bastard is amazing.
Yup the Gods whaling on the giant whale daemon…. sorry that was terrible.
Rogue, just tell Virus that he can’t draw. Calmly and respectfully.
Oh, yeah. Virus always carries with him the markers and paper to explain his thoughts. Like I do =D
I hope we get to see the island! Maybe that’s where Lothar is going to get sentenced to stay.
I like how Virus is posed while drawing. Definitely refrigerator worthy.
wel at least theyre helpfull for us so we understand wtf theyre trying to summon.
Shiggy-Kagiggy-Wiggy sounds like a Banjo-Kazooie character.
Would love it if they manage to resurrect it and it turns out his name is just Bill or something.
They already used that joke when the great pattener demon to be summoned by the massive cult was named ‘Keith’
It might be the simple reason that you have to be able to pronounce their names to summon them. While Krbyeeqrlch, or something along those lines make sound intimidating, it is impractical for all your cultist followers to choke on their tongues whenever they try summoning you. Unless the demon/elder god/abomination gets their kicks from that…
Well he did start out as a mortal, so it would make sense for him to have a regular name from before he was a god. Though he could have been given that name at birth and decided to live up to it.
The final form of the lesser god reminds me of the early Cloverfield monster concept art (which I prefer over the final form) :
Bring on Shg’jkggrt’mnwgt !
I meant I prefer the concept art of the Cloverfield monster over the one they used in film. The final form of Shg’jkggrt’mnwgt is pure stick-figure genius ;)
That is exactly what I was thinking. It really was a bummer they didn’t use that design in the movie.
So no water pressure?
Evil land whale god, yay!
more scary then the average land shark
When both the pantheons of Order AND Chaos team up to wail on something, you KNOW the target’s bad.
And at least Virus’ drawings are LEAGUES better than Lothar’s.
Heh cthulhu fhtagn
Heh. The reverse is true too, one word can be worth a thousand pictures.
Poor ShaggaRaggaHargleboo, beaten up by ALL the gods. With tire irons.
It’s nice to see good and evil working together to protect the world. If just that one time.
So there are gods other than the Big Four, huh? That makes things pretty interesting, even if they’re just lesser ones. I’m going to assume the same happens with the justice half of the pantheon…?
It’s been said before, but I do love Virus’s pose there at the end. Classic artistic stance.
For some reason, I have the mental image of these cultists actually succeeding only to end up with an Elder God in terry robe and fuzzy slippers peering at them blearily for a moment before yelling at them to feck off and let him go back to sleep–do those kids even know what time of the millenia it is?? before shuffling off and closing the portal behind him. :-)
Really? I got the image of a goldfish. Yep. The portal opens and a tiny little goldfish flops out.
The cultists get bored and take off and the two decide to head home with a new pet…. for the kitchen.
Which Blasphemy eats and then the REAL plot begins!
The destructive power…. I applaud you sir. A way to make the little f**k more epic!
The Eldergod got loose, then vamoosed, and now you know the plot?
I wonder what this guy was all those years ago, if he started out as a minor cultist. Anglerfish? All I know is, I REALLY want to see this guy for real, no matter what happens, it’s gonna be awesome without East and Lothar to…be a jerk and a psycho respectively.
Completely unrelated, but I bet Lothar (the character) would get along well with Krieg from Borderlands 2.
Hahahahaha. You lazy asses did this so you didn’t have to waste a lot of time coloring and shading, didn’t you?
It’s cool, man, I loved it.
The writers rarely make it easy for me in that way. They know whatever they throw at me I’ll make happen one way or another. In this case, I think Stuart was just a fan of the doodles in this old strip and wanted a redux. Turned out conveniently easy for me (but it somehow still ended up being a 4am finish).
Can someone tell me what Eugene is?
An axolotl salamander.
People sure do axolotl questions about him.
I don’t know whether to applaud you or grab a tomato…
Oh deities…the punnage…it hurts us, my precious!
INB4 the ritual goes ahead, but Morth shows up instead
My question is, if this Old Ones reject is dead, how are these guys bringing him back?
Well, it IS the phone book of the DEAD…
NECROtelenomicon ;) clues in the name.
also, since when has being dead ever kept a dark god down?
Wait…the gods on BOTH sides disapproved of him? OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH crap…that’s never good. *looks off to the side* Right guys?
RAIDEN: *nods solumnly*
.. Wait- this is good news! This means we can get all the other gods, light and dark, to gang up on these guys once again! They just need to… Get 4 light and 4 dark priests in the same room, and have each of them summon a demon, then let the demons wreak havoc until the gate is destroyed…..
This was not a good idea from the start, was it?
That actually sounds like a scene from Yu-Gi-Oh during the time of Pharoh Atem.
Once again, childrens card games are the answers to lifes problems.
Good and Evil ganging up…? Ye gods!
Heh, virus bad drawings kinda reminde me of Rukia’s ones from Bleach.
Or Ed’s from FMA
No wait Ed’s are more like Lothar’s bad drawings…..
it’s either going to be a really fearsome god that deserved the aliance because he was really that dangerous. Or is going to be the biggest failwhale ever who got owned by the other gods so he wouldn’t ruin their reputation
…im sure is going to be the second
Okay. This is the third time you have drawn something cuddle worthy. You obviously don’t have any fans yet who tend to squee when her favorite characters are doing adorable things. As such, Virus in the last panel is way to adorable. My dad already gave me a funny look when he heard ry out about how cute he looks in that panel.
Erm…I can’t tell. Is Rogue being sarcastic, or is he actually HUMORING Virus? If it;s the latter, it totally adds to his cuddlability. Needless to say I wanna cuddle them both.
