Having fun on vacation. So far it’s all hot tubs and Long island iced teas. Next week I’ll be at the Portland Zine Symposium, selling sticker sets, t-shirts and books. Come say hi!
Okay. I did not see that coming.
the car or the huge jerk comment?
I don’t think he saw it coming either.
All children should learn how to drive that way. A little more then defensive but hey a chainsaw unicorn is worth 100 pts
I’d like it to be noted i called this ahead of time.
Just got done reading the archives, and i agree with Mister Jay – as soon as they got in the car I figured they’d end up making unicorn roadkill. I wonder if Unicorn tastes good? The other other white meat maybe?
Unicorn is really tender red meat. Like a cross between venison and veal. The taste is something to kill for. Darn. Now I’m hungry again!
Saw this coming from a mile away…
COOL!!! A chainsaw unicorn!
Only one word can truly describe this:
hit and run
This just became the awesomest comic ever. And it was already top ten with Jake Vs. Chainsawnicorn.
One minute earlier,
“Hey Medusa, you’re like five, right? Want to sit next to me as I slaughter a unicorn?” 😀
Pretty much the best way to finish that whole fight sequence XD
Yeah! What she said!
Thanks. Please vote everyone. It just takes about 30 seconds.
chainsaw unicorn got owned by the car!!
Putting extra pressure on that jerk part aren’t ya? XD
BTW wow that unicorn is like a jelly baloon or something? :p
Just found out about this webcomic, read the whole thing, and will bookmark this site. The little Medusa is so cute, I wish I could hug her.
It’s weird that in a comic where just about everything on screen is covered in blood, the characters are still calling the murderous unicorn a “jerk.” Kind of surreal, actually.
Of course, this is the comic where mythical creatures can pop up out of your toilet, so maybe that’s the aim.
I wanted to keep it PG. Yeah, graphic violence, I know. Parents don’t seem to care as much about that as profanity.
yeeeeeah I find it strange… you can show all the blood and guts you whant, but the minute you say something like, “bloody hell” everyone get’s all pissed off… = like when they all complained about the movie avitar when they said like.. 1 cuse word… when in E.T. they said 5 or 6. XD
It’s a weird standard.
Don’t forget about Spielberg wanting to edit out the guns and swears from ET. Between him and Lucas….
No, I got it was probably that. It actually worked pretty well in the last comic, with Jake running out of steam and using what was possibly his last words to call his intended murderer a jerk. I really liked that.
For Mara, though, it seems out of place. She should, realistically, know a far better word/phrase to use in this situation and has no reason not to. For her to call the thing that almost killed her uncle, the thing she herself just killed, a “jerk” kind of took me out of the action for a minute. It lessened the impact of what just happened.
That might not be true for everyone. I’m probably so numbed to profanity by movies/people/internet/our culture in general that things just don’t sound “right” without it, but I think there might have been a better way to write Mara’s dialogue in the last panel.
I’m trying to keep the comic profanity free, and I like to repeate jokes three times. So you’ll probably see someone else called a jerk fairly soon.
Yeah, but you used the word “crap” three times in a row earlier. I’m pretty sure that counts as a potty word.
*both sisters giggle in a manner most juvenile*
I love Medusa in the last panel, lol. Awesome.
For sparta! *hits him with an suv.
Hey! Really dig the comic, and read through all your archives tonight. Keep up the good work, man! Also, I had no idea that Cibo Matto was back together! My wife will be excited.
when van’s attack unicorn! next time on fox
Add some spice to your life: try Jerk Unicorn!
Well, what else is there left but to make unicorn jerky, right?
Ok this is continuing off from my first part of the battle from the previous page
Chainsaw Unicorn used Bide!
It’s biding or sumthin’!
Marsh used Toyota Headbutt!
The attack was Super Effective!
Chainsaw Unicorn fainted!
Srry I was trying to write your nieces name but mah damn auto correct turned it into Marsh.
Marsh is pretty funny.
… So no State Farm idea then?…
…And then it exploded.
Probably shouldn’t have been reading this in class. Burst out laughing when the CSU got smucked by the car, and got the attention of a rather fair portion of the class. That said, I am really enjoying this comic so far.
Thanks for reading in class!
Just stumbled across this.
What passed through my mind a strip or two back?
K9 to Mickey: “We are sitting in a car.”
Hey that Chevy joke form all the way back was treu!
panel 3 looks like she’s thinking” i cant believe that just happened”
I’d love to see how you explained that to the guy whose going to fix your car.
The small details like the glasses coming off the face and landing on the dash and then staying there. One of those things that frequently get overlooked. Although, I was rather surprised that the airbag didn’t get set off. That usually happens when you ram something the size of a horse at any appreciable speed
Oh well, still made me laugh out loud! 😀
That’s gonna be hard on the car.
Dude! Marah totally redeemed herself here!
Oh, poor Chris :'(
And by Chris I mean Charles.
I can’t believe I didn’t think of this. I almost always think of things like this in situations like this.
I am now ashamed.
