Hell yeah, where you summon beasts to mash one another up, or turn into one to do the same! I assume. Maybe they play chess, who knows.
Oh goodness, let it be chess!
Obviously it is a version of shoji where, when you capture the enemy’s piece, you TRANSMOGRIFY it into one of yourse – and give it cool, pokemon style powers.
how they track whose is whose is the real mystery
Actually I think they transmogrify themselves…..
Kinda hopin’ his secret totem animal is a giant kick-ass goat. Would make for some good comedy.
And the preppy kid can come back and turn into a giant hipster snake… with a little round scar on its forehead.
Both of those suggestions work for me!

It slices, it dices–It even makes julieanne fries!!!
Julie Anne fries or Julieanne?
wait – i thought her name was celeste
Not that I even KNOW what a julieanne fry is……
If our ‘hero’ indeed turns into a goat, he might have one… *ahem* hell of an advantage. “You say goat, I say SATAN.”
Yeah, this makes a lot of sense, put the new guy, who you know next-to-nothing about, and who doesn’t want to be there in the first place, on your team in a competition he’s never heard of.
Lets not forget that we haven’t yet seen him cast a spell successfully on his own.
Yeah, he’s totally the right guy for that.
Poor Graham. He’s probably more the type to gamble on sporting events than actually play on one. And I wouldn’t put any money on that cigarette starting a distracting fire. They’ll just extinguish it with magic. (sigh)
He seems like the type who’d gamble just to let people know he can afford to lose.
“If there’s one thing that being ungodly rich has taught me, it’s to never take risks with my money. Therefore, bookie, I put a million dollars on every horse.”
“Every horse, bookie! Are you deaf?”
“No, no, I’ve changed my mind. Not every horse. Just Seabiscuit.”
“…Seabiscuit isn’t in the race today, sir, he’s dead…”
“DID YOU HEAR ME? I PUT MONEY ON SEABISCUIT!”
“…um, okay. You lose.”
“Fuck, I guess I’ll have to sell my least favorite Maserati now.”
I think that’s how he first met the blonde that got him into this mess
Ain’t gonna’ stay disgustingly rich for very long THAT way…..
I’m pretty sure he was never ACTUALLY rich – he just said so to get into that blonde’s pants.
Not being able to cast a decent spell may be to his advantage. They’ll never see the mundane attack coming. I’m willing to bet a knee to the groin hurts regardless of transmogrified form.
I’m curious. She’s the intelligent one, yet she expects him to pull some victory off.
She’s a know-it-all. That doesn’t necessarily come with sense.
Book smarts =/= street smarts
She expects the other team to expect him to pull off a victory. AKA, he is the convenient distraction to give her the chance to crush them.
And crush them she will.
Not her. I’m betting good money that Merrill is a total stud at this sport.
yes… he must have some talent or she wouldn’t keep him around…
That would explain a lot ’bout Ol’ Merrill…..
Yeah, she’s the intelligent one with the insider knowledge. Sounds like a grand setup to bet the other team. 1) Hype the great white hope until you get 4:1 or better; 2) profit!
Maybe she just discounts any need for him to actually be good based on the rest of the team’s awesomeness? Like the Early 90′s Bulls with Jordan, Pippen and Rodman, but who else was on it?
Steve Kerr and Toni Kukoc. But I’m pretty sure those names actually support your point.
Yeah– that totally fits. Wasn’t Harry Potter’s Qudditch is exactly the same? Except in this game its OK to have one player suck, and in Qudditch its OK to have all your players but one suck — because only the seeker matters.
He forgot to put his cigarette out. I bet the fire it starts is what wins the game.
Or better yet, burns the entire place down!
Comments in General:
–Geez Girl, spoil things just when he was beginning to have some fun!
–And just when I thought this school was the most BORING place, ever–!
–Well….It’s not as if Twinkie McSheen ain’t already made an ASS of himself, ya’ know……!
Ya know everytime I read Graham’s dialogue I picture Bruce Campbell.
I do believe that character of Graham is really based on Bruce Campbell. But it is Campbell in a very bad day!
“Hail to the King, baby!”
Nawwww……Bruce Campbell was still likeable, even with the buzz-saw
Russell was pretty likeable on the previous page.
yeah, well, ANYONE is likeable when they burn a cigarette into the forehead of a dickish tween
He has one simple advantage against most of those things… fur burns. Anyone want to bet on how long it takes him to start lighting magical creatures on fire?
Flying lions are no big deal…. now flying ELEPHANTS! That is something to make you think twice about where you park the car.
Sounds like an STD …
So then….. the Jerk Hero would totally dominate in this game?
That would be MY guess…..
Here’s hoping Bastardized Latinum turns out to be a spell he can use to make other people’s magic backfire!
*glass of vodkanol raised*
I’ll take one glass of vodkano! Glass shaken not stirred…Here is to the comment page! May we forever maintain our humor and express our insanity in pages such as this–one with a damn good story and many a wacky people commenting on line! Hail to all! Prosit!
You’ve been snortin’ that stuff, Jago?
Hehehehehe….wouldn’t you like to know…but seriously, I laid off the hard stuff years ago and I now drink lite beer, coffee, tea and (gasped!) soya drinks! The first reason is that I no longer wanna experience waking up in the morning embracing the HEAD every morning, with puke and “other matter” all over the place and not remembering how I got there to begin with. Second, I wanna see my kids grow up..them little critters could be a real pain at times cause of them squabbling and all, but they are worth it…of course every time they get under my skin I threaten them to sell em to any passing person who pass by the house! That shut them up most of the time…but they are getting smart, they are slowly beginning to realize that I actually need a lawyer to sell em legally! and they know I really love them (smart brats)..So I don’t know how long I can use that line on them…”Beware the Zombie Apocalypse” seems to be a promising line of thought. Child rearing-It ain’t a science..it’s an art!
these children of which ye speak – they are the side effects of all that lds you’ve been taking, right?
Or, you can always just try snortin’ the soya stuff……
[Kids can drive-ya' CRAZY in no time!]
To @ xaviara and Mdm. Saverem:
Yup, in a way. There was a period of time I did not actually wanted to get married. My philosophy then was (no offense intended against the female of the species, of which I believe you two [Xav and Mdm. Saverem] are exemplary samples off…to get a girl pregnant; have the baby born and hand it over to my parents to raise. I provide the money and they provide the parenting and I remain blissfully single the rest of my natural life. If they want a new grand kid, no problemo!
But the reality of life is very very different….but that is another story. Having kids does drive you crazy…but in a nice crazy way…
Actually – that is not a bad plan.
I always figured I’d just steal my sister’s kids once they were properly house-broken. I mean tamed. I mean…
Sounds like a plan, actually–
[Me, I decided to settle for cats, and let my sister provide the grand-kid....
Which is probably just as well, since my niece is much better behaved than my cats]
To @ xaviara:
Xav if I didn’t know any better, I’ll say your a regular shrink who makes $20 an hour just listening to guys like me make cry baby on the couch! Yeah, your probably right…I’m too cheap and busy to see a shrink so I make comments on this pages which I really find very therapeutic. Hope admin doesn’t begin charging me no fees and all for using up the comment and discussion page!
You and me, both, Jago!
oh, I make money off crazies… just… in a slightly less legal and socially-acceptable manner…
oh – wait. was that out loud???
Glad to know I ain’t alone on this. Being slightly crazy does love company!
[That's probably why we tend to collect in either loony bins, or on comic websites....]
Real life as I figured and experience it (like you guys) is crazy as it is…so being slightly crazy in real life can (in a certain perspective) be regarded as normal. This off course means that we are the real normal people in society and everyone else who ain’t in the loony bins or in comic websites are all in denial. Hmmm…this could serve as my topic for my thesis for my masters degree…it has possibilities…
So short version: “WE ARE THE REAL NORMAL PEOPLE IN MODERN DAY SOCIETY..EVERYONE ELSE IS IN DENIAL!”
Or, you could call it, “Where All of the Village Idiots Have Gone in Modern Day Society”!
“If you say so kid, but I’m going to need at least a fifth of something clear, a Bic lighter, and my Collins Machete. And by the way, does Dragon liver go well with onions? “
mmmm…. dragon liver and onions. that. sounds. delicious!
second only to dragon wing-steak with honey-garlic toasted french bread, and fire-roasted tomatoes, and… ok, yeah, I should take a lunch break.
But I’ll take the Dragon Drummettes!
Drat! Now I’m hungry…
We tend to do that here…..
Let me guess, like pokemon only instead of capturing magic creatures you transmogrify empty beer bottles into them?
Ooh! Ooh! And when you defeat the enemy creature, it automatically transmogrifies into a FULL beer!!!
Graham is gonna DOMINATE at this game (once he figures that out)
Yep–It’s right up is alley!!!
Oh. Oh ho ho. This looks WAY fuckin’ better than Quidditch.
More Violent and Messy, at least…..
[Kinda' like football as compared to cricket]
Something about that last panel makes me think (hope) that this tournament turns into an episode of Superjail.
