Chapter 14: Page 28 – After Credits 3

Posted by / in Comic / 39 comments

Here we are, as part of our currently monthly scheduled programming. Remember, if you want to see us post more frequently, we need to increase our funding! You can help by supporting a buck or two a month on Patreon (where you would have seen this page and over a month early), or buying books or ebooks!

Here’s another commissioned test page by a potential Seba replacement, Neri Rearte. Ok “potential” is a lie at this point, as I’ve already started working with him on Chapter 15 :D

The next several pages will be new Character Sheets of the main cast while we try to create some buffer. The limiting factor still is $$, not Neri’s time, so if you want to contribute we’ll get pages made and posted faster :) The book makes a great holiday gift as well :D

    March of the Death Toasters

    • now you got me thinking of “Stray Toasters” by Bill Sienkiewicz.

  • man, the late 80s, a small radio with a weak signal, and an hour of the Dr Demento show were regulars for my small gaming group. good times. long live dead puppies, as it were.

    • p0indexterous

      We used to listen to him every afternoon, back in the 70s.
      My fav was: 🎶Fishheads, fishheads, rolly-polly fishheads🎵
      And, of course, Mr Bill.

      • fishheads and dead puppies were cornerstones of our foundation, man.

        • p0indexterous

          They have made me the man I am today.
          I should probably sue.

          • Meran Ni Cuill

            They didn’t make me a man… should I sue? Though they did bring me a man… am I even?

            And funny enough with all these body parts floating around: why does no one bring up Detachable Penis? 😂

          • p0indexterous

            Good one!

          • Meran Ni Cuill

            😂

          • p0indexterous

            You are definitely not even, Meran! You tilt quite a bit!

          • Meran Ni Cuill

            At windmills? 😂

          • p0indexterous

            At bad grammer!

          • Meran Ni Cuill

            That too….

            Next time I hear how fluid language is, and spelling, I’m going to get out my Shakespeare, have that person read that… and promise to them that’s where we are headed, with ~that attitude.

            Because you know those forward thinkers aren’t thinking about that at all.

            Heck, the plurals are already fubar’d because of this: apple’s, orange’s, all kind’s of fruit…

          • in that case i suppose i’ll have to get out my Wittgenstein so we can discuss fuzzy language theory, words with family resemblances, and all that? not sure what attitude i’ll bring to it … but perhaps i’ll bring a bozo-the-clown horn to emphasize whatever points are there (or not there) ;-)

          • p0indexterous

            I’ve never heard of Wittgenstein. ~philosophy of language ~ egads!
            He looks like a serial killer.
            I’ll bring the rubber mallet.
            Calvinball rules!

          • i took a semester of Wittgenstein … he was never photogenic. though at least one movie was made about him. he got to the point where he preferred to lecture rather than write, and much that we have concerning his thinking is from student notes.

          • Meran Ni Cuill

            You’re showing your geek, dude 😝

          • Honza Prchal

            If you want photogenic philosophers, I recommend Camus, Burke (the paintings would indicate that, had there been cameras at the time), the Catos (see Burke), Paglia, and Friedan. Modern academe has done a lot worse lately, with whatever metrics it’s dreamt up. But seriously, my better half informs me that Camus looks like he stepped out of a film noir poster.

          • we went from “Dead Puppies” and “Fishheads” to this aesthetic judgement of philosopher’s faces.

            i approve, and Rev Bob Dobbs of the Church of the Subgenius probably approves, too.

          • p0indexterous

            Language is as fluid as copier toner.

          • Meran Ni Cuill

            Spotty, makes dark lines over everything when it begins to dry out?

          • Honza Prchal

            Oh fellow reactionary, I applaud thee. i at least get to point out that, to us speakers of English as a third or even second language, this jihad against the agreement of tenses because of word genders is insulting and unwelcoming as well as deliberately unclear and borderline illiterate. I’ve occasionally made smarmy know-it-alls used to bullying their teachers stare at their shoes. Good times … good times.

          • Meran Ni Cuill

            I APPLAUD those who can speak and/or write in more than one language. Y’all are paragons!

            (and I try not to harass those folks. Missing something is to be expected. However, those to whom English is the mother tongue have no excuses. ☺️)

          • Honza Prchal

            Mary Jo Buttafuoco!

      • Meran Ni Cuill

        Sometimes I sing that under my breath while I’m walking around… I have no idea why ☺️

        Heck, I won’t watch any ANY of the John Wick films because of the brutal killing of dogs. For once, I’d like to see the dog win. (Check out Heart Shaped Box!)

        • i didn’t know that was a part of those movies …. sad. i’m all for the dog winning as well.

        • p0indexterous

          Back in days when I used to play softball, I’d sing the fishheads song:
          🎵they can’t play baseball, they don’t wear sweaters, they’re not good dancers, they don’t play drums🎶
          Surprisingly, no one on my team had a clue about what I was singing.

          • Meran Ni Cuill

            Yeah, I was considered Very Strange too. But in my time (hah! Old joke)(as in, “I’m old so I can say it), nerds weren’t a thing, geeks bit the heads off of live chickens (still disgusting), and there was no term I could fit in.

            So. “Weird” I became. I have always embraced that difference. Oh. And I was always very very quiet. I did learn to speak up. ☺️

          • Honza Prchal

            Joy to the weird, your time has come.

          • Meran Ni Cuill

            Sadly, no. I’m now TOO OLD to be appreciated. Proven to me daily…

      • Honza Prchal

        I just shared Fishheads with someone for the first time on Friday.

        • p0indexterous

          The Dr Demento continuum grows by one.

  • deathbot tryin to photobomb the Chief’s youtube upload — get yer own channel, deathbot!
    you’ve coasted long enough on the coattails of the influencers who made you what you are today.

  • Meran Ni Cuill

    And now I’m in the same boat all of you are in…

    • Delta-v

      Welcome to now. ^^

  • Meran Ni Cuill

    Red fans, red fans… (and yes, I’m hearing “fish heads, fish heads,…”

    • Red rum?

      • Meran Ni Cuill

        Nope. Though that IS funny!

  • Meran Ni Cuill

    True, true…
