    Ah.. the truth of it all. The wombat still has to get out there and live hole or not. Boneclaw mother never fails on advice.

  2. Refugee says:

    “…First, I have to pee.”

  3. Twitching says:

    “…where is my vest?”

  4. Errick says:

    Better a hole in your heart than a hole in your liver, I guess.

  5. Gramina says:

    “where’s my vest?? WHERE’S MY PICK-AX???”

  6. Shadw21 says:

    … how long was I asleep?

    … can i get something to eat?

    … does Ed get recognition for this from the hyenas?

  7. Rowan says:

    I think Digger looks amazing in the last panel. It’s like she’s being lit by a light from above 🙂

  8. Veritas says:

    Boneclaw Mother strikes such an awesome balance between tender concern, pragmatism, and forward-thinking. She really is something…

  9. Atre says:

    Vote for Digger!! http://topwebcomics.com/vote/10180/default.aspx

    you can do it every day…

    #27 and climbing….

  11. Nicole B says:

    I love how Digger looks in the last panel. It’s just so simple, yet inspiring.

  12. Azure says:

    Where are my clothes!

  13. Hawk says:

    Wait…can I still have a hug or three?

  14. The_Rippy_One says:

    …has the trader been through already?

  15. TekServer says:

    What I admire is the way Boneclaw Mother talks to Digger in a completely natural way about dealing with the grief she’s feeling – without ever once even obliquely mentioning Ed. She’s talking openly about him – for all intents and purposes, through Digger’s grief – without breaking any tribal taboos, and at the same time with no awkwardness whatever.



  16. rueyeet says:

    Well, Boneclaw Mother isn’t the foremost elder of her tribe for nothing, after all.

    Though I think “heart” instead of “liver” might have been a slip-up. O:

  17. Karyl says:

    love it as always–and proud to vote!

  18. Wolf says:

    Boneclaw Mother reminds me so much about my own mother. Concerned for the welfare of others and unblinded by the bullcrap politics around her.

  19. Maureen says:

    Re: hole in heart

    Anatomical reference. I don’t know anybody walking around with a hole in his liver, bar surgery, but holes in the heart happen naturally. Not good for you, of course.

  20. fixman88 says:

    I don’t believe in fate either, I subscribe to the belief that you make your own fate. Boneclaw Mother reminds me of an old friend of mine in terms of her wisdom and pragmatism…

  21. Last panel. That’s an odd way to leave us until Tuesday isn’t it? I wasn’t worried about anything B.C. said, but it’s Digger’s response that is throwing me off. ” Right. Alive. Yes, but– wait–”

    Is there a question as to Digger being alive or not? Is she possibly doubting that she, herself, has survived this?

  22. Mark Antony says:

    …where’s my pickaxe?

  23. LadyRutile says:

    Where’s Ed’s necklace?

  24. MadamAtom says:

    I … um … huh.

    It was there on December 21, so it’s not that the Hag took it off her along with her vest.

    Artist’s error? Or did Digger unload it with all of her “baggage” about Ed? Was it never physically there at all?

    Personally I suspect artist’s error (sorry, Ursula), but a Marvel No-Prize authorial take could be fun.

  25. Yubi Shines says:

    …is there another Skywalker?

  26. Gwennan says:

    …what happened with Jhalim? (I’m hoping that story comes next)

  27. Brian says:

    I love the way that Ursula portrays a hunter/warrior culture as people with feelings and attachments. 99% of the other writers out there would make them shouty cartoon Klingons.
