    The highlights on the wagon are really nice!

  2. WuseMajor says:

    Given the way he acts and the merchandise he deals in, one wonders how he makes money.

  3. Richard says:

    How any good mysterious magician makes money … alchemy!

    Seriously though, I get them impression he’s in the bartering trade, which provides non-monetary rewards of its own.

  4. CoCo says:

    That’s an *excellent* question, Digger…

  5. Domino says:

    He read the comic

  6. Jon says:

    Wouldn’t that question be a good example of an incuriousity?

  7. Kasper says:

    To be fair, “Digger” is not too far off from “burrower”, so it could be a coincidence that he chose to use that name. Then again, Digger seems unable to experience coincidental things.

  8. Eugene says:

    I’d like to think it was a coincidence, and so would Digger I imagine.

  9. Vespasiana says:

    Not only did he know Digger’s name, he knew her gender, too.

  10. TekServer says:

    > Not only did he know Digger’s name, he knew her gender, too.

    Several beings less familiar with wombats in general have had no trouble determining her gender. (Must be the voice … )


  11. Sildraug says:

    I think that’s a bit harder on the fourth wall than things will ever get, here.

  12. alex says:

    It’s Deadpool on anti-psychotics. Or maybe Squirrel Girl…

  13. Why was he right in front of the hag’s hut, for that matter? I expect someone told him Digger was waiting for him, or maybe the statue of Ganesh told him that she was important for carrying that ammonite through the warp tunnel and that matters to his magic.

  14. Ryn says:

    Maybe he’s paid to take incuriousities away?

  15. rueyeet says:

    Maybe he’s yet another god, wandering about the world. Goodness knows this place seems thick with ’em.

  16. Lord the 22nd says:

    Maybe he’s a time traveler? Maybe maybe maybe. Just keep reading. We’ll find out, eventually.

  17. JET73L says:

    Perhaps his payment for the way will be the ammonite, or payment to take the ammonite in a secure way will require payment. Maybe the bandersnatch eats topsoil and poops gold. Perchance he has Namedar. The world may never know.

  18. Beacon80 says:

    I’m surprised nobody’s mentioned the possible double-meaning behind “do not be late.” He did, after all, say “if you are still alive” two strips ago, implying he believes (and not without merit) that there’s at least a feasible chance Digger will die before then.

  19. TekServer says:

    @Beacon80 … as in “the late Dent Arthur Dent”? Sort of a threat?
