  1. Terry says:

    Gods… something about the chain being mounted into the heart just gives the whole thing another element of horror for me.

  2. Robin Bobcat says:

    *dramatic music*

  3. BarGamer says:

    “Chained Heart of a Betrayed God” sounds like some sort of Metal band.

  4. Ketira says:

    Terry – I’m with you. I’m just glad it wasn’t detailed enough to make me nauseous. (There are some things that are better if they’re not colored.)

  5. Gramina says:

    We all know the drill, yes? Digger’s climbed a notch, btw! http://topwebcomics.com/gpages/default.aspx?id=10180

  6. Emma says:

    This is going to become interesting O.O

  7. The_Rippy_One says:

    It just occured to me…shouldn’t the cold ones be forcing the liver to…make acid or something? Isn’t the liver the center of things for Hyena faith…?

    Yeah the heart is cooler, in a “oh gods, get it away,” body horror, sort of way, but, still…

  8. Uberursa says:

    Chained hear is just…wrong

  9. Exindiv says:

    Home is where the heart is- er….

  10. Alex says:

    ~Ed~ “Digger-mousie, why it is being not the liver which is hanging from the ceiling?”

  11. Peter of the Norse says:

    That looks more like a human heart than a hyena heart. Perhaps it’s the heart of a human god that got grafted onto He is Fierce.

  12. Niall says:

    “You put a chain in my heart and then you betrayed me” – He-is’ great country hit!

  13. JewelWolf says:

    I think the sizes are kind of a metaphore here. Look at how tiny Digger and Ed are. And now they have to go up against this gruesome, leviathan heart.

  14. alondro says:

    This reminds me of the old Bill Cosby routine “Chicken Heart”. It was kept alive in a laboratory in vat… then it escaped and ate New York City! D:

  15. Note the shadow just to the left of the second frame between the heart and the heroes is that a shadowed Cold One?

  16. Brenda says:

    Dun dun DUN…

  17. Melissa Trible says:

    BarGamer: I agree.

    a wombat fact you may find a use for. or maybe not. courtesy of twitter.


  19. Tindi says:

    Oh, man we’re here again.

  20. jassius says:

    Hyena gods chained heart still beating.
    Umm. Beware of ancient livers running wild and free!

    Distant Cold servants chorus:
    *…So as we worship
    Let the livers flow.
    In this place where we give you our hearts…*

  21. JewelWolf says:

    @Jassius: I think they saw the liver the first time they were here. It wasn’t really a huge deal. Just lying somewhere.

  22. Maureen says:

    Jassius, you are brilliant.

  23. Travis Brand says:

    I think that thing’s a bit larger than five feet, six inches…

  24. bob the sixth says:

    Travis Brand: I think that thing’s a bit larger than five feet, six inches…
    I think the god is a good fifty feet tall, he would need a massive heart

  25. jessara40k says:

    @JewelWolf I’m not sure how much of that is the size difference, and how much the effect of the heart being right in the foreground, and them peeking in from a tunnel right at the back of the cave.

  26. JewelWolf says:

    @jessara40K: I’m sure the heart is much smaller than that, but the size of it in comparison from the perspective Ursula has given us.

  27. Jassius says:

    Thanks for the reminder JewelWolf. I remembered they mentioned the liver the first time, but for dear life I could not remember if they said it was or it was not there. Now I know. Still I would not be surprised if Ursula came with wandering warrior liver defending the site

    I am quite sure perspective makes that heart quite bigger, yet the image shows it is quite a long jump for a short legged wombat to reach that heart. I say, better look for an alternative way

  28. Hawk says:

    So, the heroes draw close to the heart of the problem…


    If that’s a Cold One in the shadows, some funky stuff is going on with perspective…still, it does have a suggestively Cold-One-esque shape to it. Perhaps just a way to remind us all that not only do Digger and Ed have to (somehow) deal with this dead god situation, but also with his servants…

    Well, perhaps Ed will be able to do a lot more with that crowbar than previously expected. And we all know Digger is dangerous with a mining pick!

    All in all, I’m nibbling my nails to the quick in anticipation of the next update!!

  29. The Occupant says:

    I wonder how it must feel for Ed, to see one of his gods chained up like this.

  30. Silver Guardian says:

    You and me both, Hawk.

  31. JewelWolf says:

    Lets hope there are now crossbows in this cave. It’s the only thing I’ve ever seen peirce Digger’s skin.

  32. jaynee says:

    I’m sure JewelWolf meant “not”, not “now”!

    Isn’t English interesting : )

  33. JewelWolf says:

    Oh yeah… I didn’t even notice that typo. Thanks. ^-^

  34. Robin Bobcat says:

    Hmmm.. Maybe *that* is why my comments haven’t been showing up.. for some reason, my default email for comments was popping up as my ‘no I don’t want to give my email’, rather than my actual email.

    Ah well. Go Digger! Go Ed! Go.. Umm.. Crowbar!

    (next comic series totally needs to be the Adventures of Ed’s Crowbar)

  35. KarlBob says:

    Hard to believe this is where things have been heading since Digger hit a pocket of bad gas (and magic), isn’t it?

  36. ronin1337 says:

    The conflict escalates rapidly!What will happen to our heroes?!?!? I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE!

  37. Barry says:

    Of course, all of this means only one thing: It’s time to switch back to Murai. :-O

  38. Alas, Barry, you may be right.

  39. Robin Bobcat says:

    Let’s try this.. see if it works…

  40. Melissa Trible says:

    Looks like you called it, Barry.
