My apologies, guys–Comicpress is giving me a serious fight on updates recently, and I’ve had to manually fiddle with them for the last three updates.

Ironically, they are all of them breaking in different ways. I think.

    Well his instincts say that the smell is fresh, and Diggers wombat instincts are telling her that the tunnel they are in is fresh compared to a much older tunnel.

    They are getting close thats for sure.

  2. Rowanmdm says:

    I love how Digger frequently understates the seriousness/danger/emotional reaction to a situation.

  3. Old Prof. Otter says:

    Update me on winter tribe? I really do not want to hunt through the archives.

  4. Tyr says:

    Bad guys that are keeping the heart beating. Used to be part of the Hyena’s tribe, but broke away to follow he-that-was.

  5. Nonny Mouse says:

    They’re the splinter tribe of hyena folk who are keeping the hyena god He Is – and the demon Sweetgrassvoice that is possessing him – alive by artificial means (the previously-mentioned rope-and-pulley system Digger described to the Skins a few strips back).

    Ed calls them the Winter Tribe because they are cold and smell like winter.

  6. theMediator says:

    The winter tribe is how Ed describes the Cold Servants.

  7. Sparky Lurkdragon says:

    Ed says that the cold servants smell like his old tribe, only like they’re made of winter.

  8. Loren says:

    Look up “litotes”. Digger uses ’em fairly often, I think.

  9. Sondre says:

    I’ll just put this up here, since it’s not here already. You know the way, right?

  10. Prithee, Dear Wombat, Where beist your Pick. Me thinkest thine hour is close at hand.

  11. poppiesnroses says:

    @ Old Prof Otter: “winter tribe” means the cold ones, the bird-faced servants.

  12. TekServer says:

    Remember Tunnel 17!


  13. Gramina says:

    So, is Thursday back to Murai? *braces self*

  14. JewelWolf says:

    I love the artwork in this one. With the tunnel in the background of the first panel.

  15. Gramina says:

    topcomics appears to be down – at least, I can’t reach them via the link above or the short form (plain …topwebcomics.com) from either my home or my work computers.

  16. JewelWolf says:

    @Gramina: It’s been acting sketchy lately. I was able to get on yesterday, but not today. I don’t know what’s wrong.

  17. Internet slowness in general yesterday. Like a tremor in the Force you might say.

  18. Hunter says:

    I bet that in the next panel the Cold Servants are going to be right behind them.

  19. Old Prof. Otter says:

    Thanks folks for the updates.

  20. Rags says:

    Of course a burrower would like things that start with “lit(h)o”…

    Quick flash of crowd of comic characters and hang-on-avatars attacking Comicpress and yelling “get those updates through!”

    And the occasional “or we’ll show you how Tunnel 17 went!”
