    At this point, another complication would be expected.

    Love the sketchy look of this!

  2. SirEel says:

    At this point more complications would make this plot even harder to follow >_>

  3. inlaid says:

    Nice light and shade.

  4. 535 says:

    “…at this point, what’s one more complication?”

    This sentiment might sum up my life better than anything I have ever read before! ^.^

  5. dolo-pzora says:

    ” what’s one more complication?” My doctor said that to me once while I was going though Chemo. At that point I had to agree. You just take it as it comes.
    I like the wood cut style of these panels.

  6. Sondre says:

    I hear the Indiana Jones theme in the background.
    So, tell me. What *IS* one more complication?

  7. Nohbody says:

    Although not anywhere near as bad a temptation of fate as “it couldn’t possibly get worse”, I still get the feeling that a) there WILL be a complication, and b) it’ll be a doozy, just from her saying that.

  8. Hawk says:

    So long as they don’t “walk on fortune cookie” I’m fine with the Indiana Jones music. 😛

  9. Lanthir says:

    And it is for situations like this that Digger is my hero. On to Adventure, little wombat!

  10. TekServer says:

    What’s one more complication? I wonder what the wombat equivalent is of “the straw that broke the camel’s back” …

    😉

  11. The Mad Major says:

    “The swing that caved the tunnel in,” I’d imagine…

    😀

  12. JewelWolf says:

    Who else thinks that Digger will get sick of these complications eventually? I think that when that happens, one of those complications is going to have that glow stick shoved some place that is not supposed to glow.

  13. John the Wysard says:

    “There is no problem, however complicated, that when looked at in the proper way does not become yet MORE complicated.”

    (probably one of the correlaries to Murphy’s Law, and certainly well known to Digger)

  14. Time is weird in the Digger verse, you know. On Tuesday, Digger and Ed go down the dark hole. Between Tuesday and Thursday Digger’s fate lay shrouded in mystery. “What will Digger and Ed face when they come into the light.” I thought throughout the day. Then Thursday comes and on with the adventure. However in Digger’s world only seconds have past. She goes down the hole, it’s dark, and she turns on a light. It makes perfect sense. I’m left thinking, “Well, what was I so worried about?”

  15. Top Webcomics has Digger at number 43. 42nd is a comic called Catena. It looks like a combination of anthropomorphic cats meets The Sims. There are Angelic cats and Death comes to hang out. Not to kill anyone necessarily, just because. Anyway, keep voting. It would be great if Digger could get to 40 or better. Does anyone know how many more days left there are for voting?

  16. Oops, I just saw it. There are 14 days left to vote.

  17. Mark Antony says:

    @Tekserver: “The rock that blunted the Mole’s claws”? Or maybe, “The nick that collapsed the mining tunnel.”

  18. Adreth says:

    oh, I do so hope the skin lizards show up again

  19. Daemoniac says:

    I just read this and caught up in the past day and a half. it’s been absolutely wonderful and I plan on reading every week now 🙂

  20. Tindi says:

    @Mark Antony: I like the first one.

    I was expecting the glowstick as soon as Ed said how dark it was. Random train of thought led me to ponder running through the archives again…

  21. Sablekitty says:

    I can’t help but agree with the sentiment expressed by “535”. If things started running too smoothly for too long-that’s when I would start to worry! Besides, the complications make things much more “interesting”. So, where do I vote?

  22. Ravens Cry says:

    Having read the entire archive over the course of several days, for this wonderful work of art, I thank you. Memorable, lovable, resolute characters, truly epic storylines, magnificent art, it is certainly among the top webcomics I have ever had the joy to read.
    Again, from the bottom of my heart, or liver, I thank you what has been created here.

  23. Mani says:

    It occurs to me:

    Do we know for a fact that the “cold” servants that the skin-lizards were referring to were the masked hyenas that chased Digger and killed skull-ridges?

    I can’t remember exactly, but I feel like we were told that there were “warm” servants that ate the lizards, and then “cold” ones that were even scarier, and the masked hyenas were pretty spooky when they appeared so we assumed the “cold” ones were them. Is there an explicit identification I missed?

    Because it seems to me that the masked hyenas (unless they’re un/dead) would be warm, like Digger was, to the skin-lizards. And if Digger hasn’t yet even run into the actual “cold” servants, she might be in for a nasty surprise.

  24. BunnyRock says:

    Mani, a similar thougt came to me at one point. well, one way or another we’ll soon find out

  25. TekServer says:

    Ursula herself identifies them as “Cold Servants” in her comment below the comic here.
