Saving the City: Sans-Spandex

We have decided to move to an every other week schedule from now until the end of the year. We’ve been struggling to get back to once a week on time comics with everything that’s been going on, between one or both of us on overtime, the season for our nonprofit ramping up, and general brain fatigue.  Because, you know, 2020.

There will be a comic this coming Wednesday (9/30) and then every other week after that, with filler during November as per usual.

Time to play 'count the creepy things' in the secret basement!

So that super complicated panel?  Didn’t take nearly as much time as I thought it would.  I think it’s trying to lure me into a false sense of security so that I don’t get ahead on the next one.

    Those damn vampires.
    You try rubbing them out, you try staking them, but you still end up with a catholic papal collar.

    What?

    Sorry, my sense of humor is…odd.

    The weapons on the wall, the crapton of holy water bottles, the stake-like items in the case to the right, what we know about the father as a good man who does his duty…

    And if you remember the shrill old Wisk laundry soap TV commercials and read my comment above in a sing-song voice it pretty much rhymes with the commercial.

    OH! Okay sorry. I get it now.

    I think my favorite part is the teapot….

    Also, I think this firmly squelches the ‘Padre is the vigilante’ rumors. Vigilante has never needed weapons.

    Is that hot plate making holy water?

  • Dex on August 6, 2016 at 3:32 PM

    I think that’s coffee

    It could be making holy water — if Father Mark is testing the theory that you can make holy water by boiling the hell out of it! 😉

    In response to the alt text; the only creepy thing I find down there is the cup of tea, but I’m a bit of a weapon’s nerd. 🙂

    Every time i look at the little pouches on the front top shelf to the right, I visualize the dear padre throwing them at some idiot dressed as a troll and yelling “Lightning Bolt! Lightning Bolt! Hold Person! Death!” But maybe he doesn’t do much LARPing with all those vampires out there to rub out…

    Also, I’m pretty sure those boxed back issues of National Geographic on the front top left shelf is the creepiest thing down there.

    Are those D&D dice bags on the top right shelf? If so, right on! 😀
    But you’ll probably say it’s actually eye of newt powder or something else exotic 😉

    In (very slightly) more seriousness, welcome to the lair of Padre Witch/Vampire Hunter.

    Heh. If they were dice, you’d be in Hazel’s Basement. Or Erika’s.

    Also, they are WAY too big to be spell packets for LARPing. The ones we use in our games might be particularly small at about 1×2″ but I don’t think I’ve ever seen them much bigger than that. See, they gotta be little enough to have a whole handful in your pocket, or you’ll run out of spells at inopportune times.

    That’s the Cross of St. Benedict… Is he an oblate or something?
