    I love it that Digger’s word of choice when confronted with the amazing, weird, or just generally unexpected is “Whoa.” She’s so true to her earthy, no-nonsense nature.

  2. Adreth says:

    Or she’s just channeling Keanu Reeves…

    …but I like your notion much better.

    Hmmm…. Why is Snout-God there, I wonder?

    Okay, so on the previous version of this webpage, at the bottom of this comic, there was a note by Ursula Vernon saying that there were perfectly legitimate reasons for a wombat to be carrying around a glowstick, such as a non-combustible light source in caverns full of combustible minerals (can’t remember the exact wording. Not that cool, here). She made sure to mention that it was NOT because Digger was on her way to a rave.

    Someone then submitted that it was just as plausible for Digger to be a miner AND someone who enjoys a good rave every now and then.

    To which I replied, “Responsible raves don’t allow Minors,” because it was there, and if I hadn’t said it, it would have been a waste of a perfectly good pun.

    And now that the pun has been perpetuated, I now return you to your regularly scheduled comic.

    Can you still get to the comments in the old site? Was the glowstick made from glow in the dark vorms, or what?

    And, hey, is that a peacock above the rodents with the brain in the bottom left? Is that a Clue, Foreshadowing, or coincidence? YOU DECIDE.

    Wait… Digger is female!? 0_o

    Let’s play “spot the ‘Conspiracy of mammals’ shout out”.
    Found it!

    What’s a bunyip?

  9. redbeard says:

    A bunyip is a huge ferocious mythical beast from Australian Aboriginal legends (details vary). Such Aboriginal legends were likely fueled by finding the bones of a number of extinct megafauna — most amusingly for our story, a prime candidate is Diprotodon — basically, a gigantic wombat that weighed in at about 3 tons (the largest known marsupial to have ever lived). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diprotodon

    Don’t know if anyone else is reading through after the comic ended, but… *sigh* Memories.
    I love the painting in the last panel here. It’s like a glimpse of the Hyena-myth storytelling to come.

  11. Ellemerr says:

    I’d forgotten the mention of the bunyip. Now I feel all fuzzy and warm inside of me all over again. ^_^

    What? It’s completely normal to feel all fuzzy and warm inside at the mention of big, howling mythical monsters! I swear.
