I just have to say, I absolutely love Surka. Okay, I love all the characters in this strip, but right now I’m feeling very fond of one dishwasher/assassin/pirate queen/professional troll/shrew in particular.
Add panel 2 to the list of t-shirts this story needs made.
Some of the best bits in this comic are the footnotes, particularly regarding sound effects.
Oh dear lord… the artist who brought us all the sound of a dinosaur brain-stem flapping in the wind (if you haven’t yet, read conspiracy of mammals) now gives us a large gourd committing a kamikaze assault.
Ursula, never change. Please.
“Ursula, never change.”
Won’t her clothes get smelly?
The made-up onomatopoeias add so much to the wonderfulness of the comic.
[...] "The sound of a large gourd committing a kamikaze assault. Difficult to render phonetically." http://www.diggercomic.com/?p=333 [...]
Aaaand the troll’s grinning again.
Funniest. Ambush. Ever.
“The sound of a large gourd committing a kamikaze assault”.
It’s been said before: half the fun is the footnotes.
I believe there was a phrase mentioned a while back: “Back, y’cursed veggies!” if I recall correctly.
Not only are vampire veggies an actual myth, reddish spots actually form on the outsides of aged melons and squash. So the farmer guy was right when he said that your veggies will go vampire if you didn’t harvest them (although in our world, they just turn red and sit there)
Or Do They!
Dun Dun DUUUUUUUNNNNNNN!!!!!
*cut to me poking the pumpkin I’m growing for Halloween with a stick and yelling “Come on! Do something! You wasn’t blood? Fight for it!”
Interesting… could Audrey II from Little shop of horrors be from a planet where vampire squash rule, and men are but their slaves?
(men/man is gender neutral: If I’d meant adult male I’d have said Were, if I’d meant adult female I’d have said Wif: fear the Anglish moot, our hour onbecymes! The changetime will not be settledomish!*)
*Writ to self: the Anglish Moot þearf’s better words for “revolution” and “civilised” bring this up at the next meet-thing of the Anglish-tongue lawmoot.
That’s it, I’m definitely making a vampire squash for Halloween if I have the money to buy a hollowed (or hollowable) gourd.
