Howligators? Thanks one raises a great many questions….
It’s a Narli-Gator from the old Go Bots Rock Lords toyline!
Wow. You have to be pretty old to know Rock Lords. Thats a stretch even for me.
That’s pretty cool.
I want to see Lumberjackals now.
The fact that you just had this picture ready as soon as someone commented about it is so satisfying
I have so many monsters that sadly I have not had time to show you.
Maybe one update could just be cool monsters. I’d be fine with waiting a bit for the plot to see these.
I’m getting closer and closer to finish the Yeld RPG, which is just a big book full of cool Yeld stuff, including like 50 or 60 monsters.
At first i thought these monsters are made up by Glados, but sec later i guessed they must been from Yeld lore. 🙂 Neat!
Horrible monsters indeed, everyone runs when he hears distant Lumberjackal song created by famous Yeld creator Monty Python.
Is that a full-sized pig strapped to his side? And therefore, a full-sized tree he’s using as an axe handle?
He’s a lumberjackal and he’s okay, he howls all night and he works all day.
I knew this by heart in high school, yet had never actually seen it.
Until Jake posted this amazing (and canon) picture, I was imagining them like the Timberwolves from MLP.
That makes perfect sense.
For a moment I misread Modest’s speech-bubble in the last panel and thought she was suggesting that Shrek might be one of the monsters that live in the forest.
I imagine that lumberjackles would leave a lot of felled trees around as a warning to anyone who might trespass on their territory.
I misread it too but my mind may have added “shiek” to the mix.
Or maybe it’s the Spider-Man villain from Maximum Carnage.
I love the scared snakes in the last panel, ntw.
The way the eyes of Modest’a hair-snakes pop open when she’s scared… priceless.
Yes, I agree. Her snakes’ eyes get big, her own pupils turn to pinpricks. The interplay between Modest’s snakes’ emotions and her own one of my favorite things about MM. Brilliant!

A monster sees you. It’s a hydra!
Alright you have been kind enough to show us Howligators and Lumberjackles, so could I entreat you to show us a Skelematon?
Sure. Skelematons are pretty generic Skeletons. They come in all kinds of shapes, and sometimes are just weird things made up of bones. They’re not actually creatures, just inanimate bones enchanted by someone else and left to do their bidding.
Rei’s character, Lilac, fought some of those, wifs her big siblings an’ Cin! They are *bads.* (Lilac’s… skull was *not* in goods shape by the end ofs the second fight. I means, unless ‘likes a half-inflateds beachball” is a good shape fors skulls ins your opinion.)
so are Skelematons another fun creature or is that one just a silly mispronunciation?
Its a thing Nick and I came up with for the Yeld game. But we argue about whether is supposed to be a mispronunciation (because the characters are all little kids and they mispronounce things sometimes) or if it means “Skeleton Automaton”.
Glados seems like a kid who is in a cemetery looking for ghosts, she knows she shouldn’t be out and just doesn’t care. I know she might be too worried about her sister but still.
I wish I could find the time to do some solo strips about Glados and what she gets up to on her own time.
I would definitely enjoy reading that, her and Ecksbox, but not the others (I don’t think they would be very interesting Science seems too OCD and Hole seems like Modest-light) unless Shutup becomes an adventurer and spends all her time preparing for it only to find out her preparations were for nothing and then she has to adjust to being a large snake adventurer.
How about for the fifth book?
Hey, those monsters are pretty cool looking! I bet you’d do OK handling the art side of a kids video game.
That would be fun to do.
You don’t find science. You discover science.
