I know this makes me a horrible, horrible person, but there really is a sadistic joy involved in putting up a page like this on a Thursday.

I’m so sorry.

    Oh lovely… Not the best influence for Shadow Child…

  2. Hailfire says:

    oh man you are sadistic!!! shadowchild be careful!!! don’t let it eat your friends either!!!

  3. Jamie4 says:

    Ah cripes.

  4. SayblFox says:

    … You, Miss Vernon, are crueler than any demon

  5. Jennifer says:

    Oh my, what big shadowteeth you have….

  6. violent_rabbit says:

    No you’re not. :p

  7. -N says:

    Is that Sweetgrass Voice, or do all demons look like Ed drawings?

  8. ottertee says:

    You _are_ a horrible, horrible person.

    But we all love you.

  9. Oh, no no no no…

  10. motub says:

    Oh….. *dear*.

    I am officially — not alarmed, but deeply, deeply concerned.

    Oh, dear, oh, dear.

    And, yeah, that was definitely worth any “sadistic pleasure” it might have unintentionally generated for you; you’ve earned it fair and square, Ursula. Enjoy πŸ™‚ . Guess that makes me a masochist…. πŸ˜€

  11. Laura says:

    I have managed to read the entire comic in about 3 days…I think that says something about just how damn brilliant this is πŸ˜€

  13. rowandoll says:

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! *cackles and dances*

  14. TΓ‘ssia says:

    Such an evil evil author πŸ™‚

  15. Elizabeth says:

    Oh yes. That’s just mean. I was really looking forward to the weekend, and now all I can think about is that I want it to be Tuesday!!!!!

    Sadistic author! No cookie for you! πŸ™‚

  16. vvicked says:

    You’re not sorry AT ALL! D:<

    Hooray Shadow Child’s sockalicious destiny!

  17. “Are you my mommy?”

  18. bluehydrangea says:

    Digger, wake up! I think Shadowchild needs you…

  19. Rista-liehna says:

    No it doesn’t… that one’s much meaner than Shadowchild…

  20. Terry says:

    D: Sweetgrass!

  21. I sense something big coming. But I can’t help but be happy that Shadowchild looks so delighted.

  22. kineko says:

    … Well, we can only hope that Shadow child take after Digger’s “down to earthy”-ness and will argue with logic against everything Seetgrass Voice will say to him…

  23. kineko says:

    Wait wait, I just realise something: Why isn’t sweetgrass voice with He Is?!

  24. Niall says:

    No, Ms. Vernon, I do not think that you are much sorry at all… πŸ™‚

    Stokerbramwell: I was glad I was not drinking for that superbly-apt reference. Well done!

    And I think that SV can be in more than one place at the same time…

  25. TB Tabby says:

    How do we know this is Sweetgrass Voice, and not an entirely different entity who hasn’t appeared until now? It’s not like they’re rare in this comic.

  26. theysabet says:


    …actually, I’m intrigued (and doing the oh-shit dance) and if that isn’t Sweetgrass Voice I’m gonna be very surprised indeed.

  27. Karyl says:

    Holy shmoleys! Indeed, a sadistic act! Wah—Tuesday’s so far away!

  28. Hawk says:

    You are so not sorry Ursula! haha!

    If that is Sweetgrass Voice…things are about to get either very interesting or very very scary.
    If it ISN’T S.V. … then things are just scary!!

  29. Lica says:

    SweetGrass???! Oh My Fuc….

  30. This is either very bad – or very good.

  31. Kez says:

    Ahhhh, how COULD you?! On a thursday?! You are so very horribly evil.

  32. WuseMajor says:


  33. Aelfwine says:

    That is sadistic, yes. But my, what a page! Gorgeous.

    That said, I’ll be on tenterhooks till Tuesday. An I don’t sleep for four nights through, the fault is yours, Ursula. πŸ˜‰

  34. Ralph says:

    Well, this argues against the hypothesis I’d considered that Shadowchild was an amnesiac Sweetgrass Voice.

  35. Kelly says:

    ;_; *is worried* *sniffle*

  36. Lanthir says:

    Well, this certainly has the potential to go horribly, horribly wrong.

  37. Rags says:

    The Traveler has come. Choose and perish. πŸ˜‰

  38. Peter Eng says:

    It’s bad of you, yes. But I’ve been cliffhung…cliffhanged…whatever…for years with other authors. Compared to that, five days seems like small change.

  39. Megs says:

    Love the artwork on the 3rd panel and how reminiscent it is of the cave-painting styled backstory we saw.

  40. DasK says:

    Suddenly, I’m really started to question my theory of shadowchild being an “angel” or another kind “good” critter

    If you want to know, he eats shadows, and shadows are “bad” or similar to sins in this GREAT work of fiction… so, maybe he is a good one… I had another arguments, but I’m going to see what happens next before commenting…

  41. quiltcat says:

    uh ohhhhhhhhhhh,,,,,

  42. Brenna says:

    Uh, Digger!? Shadowchild needs an adult!

  43. ngaio says:

    It’s not that it’s a Thursday that’s the problem, it’s that I’m internet-less all next week so I’ll be in suspense until the 4th of July!

  44. Sabreur says:

    Er… I don’t suppose you’re a *good* shadow-snake thingy?

  45. Andy says:

    Aw, crap. This can go nowhere good.

  46. Kelci says:

    I need my real-life fast forward button, like, NOW. I hope this new shadow thingy (I’m assuming some sort of demon) doesn’t undo all the good Digger’s been trying to do with Shadowchild.

  47. larksilver says:

    oh, crap.

  48. Quakey says:

    *meeps* Oh dear. O__o
