– Spent the day downtown with Jaymz visiting Powells and Floating World Comics. Fun, but we didn’t get day passes, so we spent WAY too much on bus fare. Powell’s had the new(ish) color reprint of Paul Pope’s One Trick Ripoff, which I got and looks great. I can’t wait to sit down with it and really dig in. Floating World had some really neat looking over sized hardcover Moebius books, but they were like $100 each. That’s frustrating. I’m having trouble finding affordable collections of his work. Same with Carl Barks, who was a super huge influence for me.
He’s heeeeeeeere. >=D
First impressions are everything.
They both have valid arguments! I really don’t know who to support!
This looks like it shall turn out interesting.
Medusa has the “OH Crap!” look 🙂
Or its the “who the heck are you!” look.
Nobody likes a neigh-sayer.
I hope you don’t have many mare of those in you.
I laughed myself hoarse.
Reading these comments is the mane attraction.
My gods, I just felt like YouTube’s Tobuscus was speaking that line. O.O
Also reminds me of when I saw After Earth (a bad movie in my opinion), and I couldn’t stop calling that giant Roc-sized bird a Murder Bird. Murder horse. Hahahaha! That is priceless. I think I won’t be calling him Chainsaw unicorn or The Knight or anything now. He is Murder Horse.
Also… HAI MURDER HORSE! (^o^)/ Welcome back to the story!
(Sorry, I just vomited that out uncontrollably). CU is my personal hero. I am glad that Jake is finally coming to terms with the fact that CU is a good influence on young minds (if, said young minds were destined to grow up to be giant snake monsters 😀 ).
I really want to know if he speaks! Jake may poop bricks! Chainy looks like he wants to buck some sense into jake while Modest looks all, ” uhh he can hear you”.
Ahhh I love this comic! 🙂
We’ve seen him talk before, in the “Wither Away” arc. Jake and company have not seen it, so it could surprise them, but it shouldn’t surprise us.
It would be so cute if the horse gave her back her pokemon’s which he saved from the lake. 😀
Speaking of pokemon wouldn’t a hourse with a chainsaw coming out of his head make the most awesome evolution for rapidash? I mean seriously that would be awesome! It won’t happen even in a million years but still.
He’s standing right behind me, isn’t he ?
“And he’s right behind me, isn’t he?”
“Why, yes. What gave it away?”
Classic moment! 😀
Sheesh, Jake, who among us hasn’t tried to cut somebody in half with a chainsaw by mistake?
Exactly I’ve done it at least five times myself. Ironically one of those times involved a hourse, some snakes, and a creepy guy is a black outfit……… don’t ask.
I think the more RELEVANT objection is ‘he’s magically bound into the service of one of the two people we’re trying to keep them AWAY from’.
Somebody’s got some ‘splainin’ to do.
*scratches head* jake has a point – if chainy is bound to do whatever momdusa tells him, how do they keep her from ordering him to bring the kids back/him from following such an order….never mind that those cuties will soon grow up into gigantic psycho monster snakes themselves….
I think this is my favorite strip yet. Murder Horse. Hehehehe…
Yes… by ‘mistake’.
stuckup chick:But I just gave you his long tragic origin story.
Jahe:A story that ended with him being under unbreakable mind control
Jake: And what kind of Shadey inkeeper charges a nintendo DS for renting a broom cupboard to sleep in THAT DOESNT GET USED BECAUSE THE PEOPLE PAYING FOR IT GOT ATTACKED AND SLEPT IN A LOG.
Marah’Sge would probably charge me for the weeklong coma I spent in Michelle and Montys
I don’t know if anyone else saw this,check out the 6-28-2013 strip http://www.gocomics.com/mythtickle .
Also it’s time for my monthly Pilgrimage to Powells
That’s super cute!
Typo in the last panel: should be “its head,” not “it’s head.” (No apostrophe!)
Thanks! I’ll fix that at some point.
I was so happy when I found the collected Incal for like $50 at my local shop. A little pricey, but much less hassle than tracking down the individual albums. There’s an oversized edition that’s like $80 as well, but that’s kinda over the top.
For other Moebius, I just gave up after a while and found some torrents. Binged on his work during an airplane ride.
For someone like Moebius I really want to hold the work in my hands. To smell the paper. That’s important to me. I just hope that some day someone will do an affordable complete collection of his work.
that chainsaw unicorn looks visibly upset!
I keep thinking, “They’re here” in a Frodo voice. That’s not weird, right?
