    hahahaha !

  2. Kaolin Fire says:

    *HEE* 😀 😀 😀

  3. Kami says:

    Lol. It had to happen.

  4. Timothy says:

    Can’t wait to see where this goes. 🙂

  5. XJaxX says:


  6. Veritas says:

    It’s like that feeling when she encountered the Wombat script on the (un)dead god’s shackles… only without the many years intervening and making it maybe a bit less awkward. Whoops.

  7. Eliza says:

    Yes! 🙂 I was hoping this would happen.

  8. Carina says:

    Blood and Shale indeed.


  9. Arca says:

    Woo! Synchronized facepalm!

  10. Argent says:

    Oh, blood and shale.

  11. Victor Wren says:

    That must be VERY embarrassing, being god of a people who have no use for gods.

  12. Oryx says:

    You can see how embarrassed they are to be seeing/been seen by another wombat in this situation!

  13. Nathaniel says:

    Well, if Digger wants some straight answers, this is where to get them.

  14. Laqez says:

    I honestly did not expect that!

  15. Tan says:

    Blood. And. Frickin. Shale.

  16. CJ says:

    Yay! Between the disgruntled chanting and the matching responses, that made my morning!

  17. FatFred says:

    Cosmic wombats!

  18. Zhukov says:

    Highly amusing.

  19. abb3w says:

    “Digger” is short for “Digger-of-unnecessarily-convoluted-tunnels”; I wonder what “Helix” is short for?

  20. Lachesis says:

    … and in office spaces around the world, curious co-workers look on in perplexity as a select though scatterd group of the initiated roll helplessly out of their respective chairs, clutching their sides in convulsive laughter.

  21. Tom says:

    “Don’t get your bowels in an uproar.” I haven’t heard that since my dad died, sometime back last millenium. I think I like Helix already.

  22. tiggertoo says:

    Hahaa! Mutual embarrassment in getting involved in all this god nonsense to begin with – and getting caught at it by another wombat. Gotta love how non-ethereal Helix looks — apart from being a bit translucent, he looks exactly as he would have when he was alive — backed up by the The All Wombat “We’d Rather Be Digging” Ethereal Choir.

  23. Marrock says:

    And just when things couldn’t possibly get any more weird… Hello Helix.

    At least they can commiserate about being saddled with various unwanted mythic types.

    Oddly enough, “Blood and shale” has crept into my own litany of epithets of choice.

  24. zellion says:

    Aha! Name is Helix,hm? As in “Descending -Helix of Fernossil Clan”, the one who scribbled that hasty inscription in wombat on the undead god’s shackles?

  25. Laurel says:

    HEHEHEHEHE… EEEEEEEEEEEE… HEHEHEHEHEHE… EEEEEEE… you caught me utterly by surprize on that one, Ursula! ***can’t breathe***

  26. Brushtail says:

    that’s a wombat alright, now maybe we can get some strait answers.

  27. Kisuneko says:

    *sporfles* First thing I thought of was “Prepare for trouble…” “…And make it double”.
    Was not extpecting that.

  28. Lanthir says:

    WOMBAT! Oh holy crap, it’s a wombat ghost!

  29. fordsfords says:

    You surprised me too! I was expecting some kind of overworked clerk who was supposed to have sorted this out ahead of time. Great twist!

  30. David. says:

    Zellion, thanks for doing the research I was curious about but too lazy to do myself. You’re almost certainly right on the money.

  31. fixman88 says:

    *giggles* Paradoxical Situation is Paradoxical!

  32. Tuima says:

    Lachesis… you have no idea. My cubicle bloc has never heard so much suppressed snickering.

  33. larksilver says:

    hehehe! Something tells me that *this* spirit from the Great Beyond won’t bother being mysterious, or try to awe and amaze his audience. This should be fun!

  34. Timotheus says:

    This strip has just joined my list of greatest moments in web comics history. Disgruntled etherial chanting indeed,

  35. GG Crono says:

    Brilliant. I love this comic. 😀

  36. BarGamer says:

    For a wombat, the only thing worse than doing something stupid, is having another wombat (also in the act of doing something stupid) catch you doing it. And one of these wombats has been doing this for a few hundred years, probably… So, yeah. Complete and total embarrassment, ahoy!

  37. Skydancer says:

    And of course, the wombat ghost isn’t going to go in for robes or concealment or mystery. Looks just like s/he did in life.

    And has the same attitude. I think we’re going to like Helix.

  38. V~Sama says:

    *dies of laugher*

  39. Ketira says:

    oh ye GODS….. I didn’t laugh loud, but long enough to shed tears! The next few pages should be fun!

  40. Snuffle says:

    Yaaaay! Oh, this makes me so very happy. When Helix was mentioned waybackwhen, I never suspected he’d be showing up later. This scene is going to be bloody brilliant! And I can already imagine the panels showing everyone else’s faces whilst listening to two wombats converse about having to deal with this mess.

    O_O o_O -_- (Shadowchild, Murai and Grim Eyes, respectively.)

  41. Quilsnap says:

    I am held in utter suspense

  42. Wombasaurus says:

    Holy FRAK! Didn’t see that coming.

  43. ysabet says:

    DIGGER: “…………”
    HELIX: “………….”
    DIGGER: “….please tell me things get less confusing when you’re dead.”
    HELIX: “Coprolytes, no! Where the hell did you get that idea? You think you got god troubles now? Wait’ll you’re *living* with them.”
    DIGGER: “….right. So. Can you drink after death?”
    HELIX: “If you couldn’t, there’d be a lot less saints. Trust me on this one.”

  44. Aelfwine says:

    Disgruntled chanting! Synchronised swearing and face-palming!

  45. samlh says:

    I actually was expecting EXACTLY this, but I am happy to see it. 🙂

  46. Calafalas says:

    wow, that guy hasn’t been brought up since September 17th, 2007…

  47. CoCo says:

    That… was pretty much my reaction. XD

  48. This is, quite possibly, the single greatest page of Digger ever created.

  49. poppiesnroses says:

    Yaaaay Ursula! The second wombat in the whole crazy comic we’ve seen! Yaaay! 😀

  50. fatuncle says:

    ysabet _ are you sure you don’t help write this ‘toon? That’s outstanding!
