And here I thought it might just make beards grow really quickly, an admittedly precious item for wizards.
You know, in old folklore, witches were believed to have long hair because that was said the source of their magic.
Hence, longer hair = stronger magic.
That and not allowing superstitious villagers in close proximity of them with sharp objects to trim the infernal mess.
Most likely that particular bit of folklore is related to the story of Sampson from the bible, whose power was also in his hair, til his girlfriend gave him a buzz cut while he was napping.
Oh, I do hope that’s a Bigmouth Billy Bass on the wall behind the plump kid whose name I can’t remember.
You noticed the fish but not the poster? Hmm, interesting.
Actually, the first thing my eyes went to was the “Magic Dew” machine.
Considering we have a talking goat, that’s probably an ACTUAL talking fish. Or what’s left of one, after they caught it and mounted it on the wall. Whether or not it can still talk, let alone sing? That, ah… heheh, remains to be seen. (Pun not originally intended, but how could I resist?)
I just now realized the entire upper right of the page is a “bigfoot” style monster truck.
Is Goatsie becoming more human because he’s in this magical cavern? Up until now his face has always been rather expressive, but this is, as far as I can think, the first time he’s used his full body in a human-like action.
Also, I LOVE the little details in this one. So many things to notice!
I think he bent his leg in annoyance, now that he realized he had paper to eat and didn’t do that but gave it back to Twinkles.
Hmm, my guess…. The GG was used to transfer power between the kid marked one and Graham. Evilmore is working for the big bad and got it somehow. But the question is, wasn’t it stolen after Graham arrived? Maybe, maybe not, or maybe a plausible fake was put in its place for a while…
Ask the singing trout, I by its magical and will sing to you the location using an annoying county tune.
Do the Hillbillies double-chins have mystical properties?
He meant short-hoof.
1) In ‘White Trash Wizard’ terms, does that mean the Golliflox is was designed as a backup generator?
2) Someone should probably tell Celeste that her impassioned, know-it-all speech would appear more impressive if not performed in front of a partially used roll of toilet paper.
Or if anyone present in the cave actually cared about what she has to say.
Oh, know-it-alls don’t care about that. They just want to look/sound smart. In fact, it’s just as well if nobody understands and/or cares. But it’s hard to look the part next to toilet paper. It’s like trying to act sexy while standing next to a poster of Newt Gingrich. It just doesn’t work.
Ya, I pasted a picture of Scarlet Johannsen in her Black Widow costume on top of a Newt Gingrich picture. Not attractive at all, Newt’s like an attractiveness black hole.
You still have it?
I mean… just for research purposes…
If anyone else in there is like me, instead of listening to her they’re wondering: why the particular combination of monstertruck & magic dew results in a pressing need for toilet paper.
that is NOT a monster truck! that, my friend, is the General Lee [Dukes of Hazzard - btw the original is like a bazillion times awesomer than that trash Jessica Simpson flounced through more recently]
I suppose since this is a magical world, it probably contains the actual ghost of the actual general who was [actually a pretty nice guy for all that he lived in the south] an ancestor of the white wizards.
Blue monster truck behind the Magic Dew machine on the left, General Lee on the right. Moose heads in the background.
oh. woops. my bad.
ooh! i finally figured out why the cavern looked so familiar! Lost in Space – where the guy gets all the cosmonium! [which, by the way, is gollllllden and the "quintessence of life's force" etc]
I swear, every update makes me love this comic more and more and more!
Are we talking stage left, or did they sew your arms on wrong when you had that accident?
No moose heads but antlers on plaques, hunting trophies.
I’m kind of surprised I had to go this far down the comments page to find reference to the General Lee.
Used-ta’ watch that show every Friday night!
[Not that I had anything else better to do at the time....]
jus’ some good ol’ boys… never meanin’ no harm…
Look at the photo above Graham’s head.
I don’t think it’s Newt Gingrich.
I concur with Jane. Maybe Celeste should have stood over there when she did her speech. Then people would have at least pretended to pay attention.
The photo above Graham’s head is a nude photo of Pamela Anderson. You can tell cause of the very well defined “bumpers”.
So it’s an angreal?
(Acronym breakdown: Wheel of Time)
((that’s a book series))
(((an angreal is something that can let you channel more magic than normal)))
((((overly parenthesized statement notwithstanding))))
Lazy author died before he could finish…
It sounds more like a sangreal a more powerful version of an angreal
Kinda like a White Gold ring in the Thomas Covenant books…plug it in, magical jumpstart.
High five to the guy who knows about The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant!!!
Thomas Covenant the unwilling hero, afflicted by leprosy and shunned by society he were chosen to save “The land” an alternative world from
The despiser who intends to break free of his chains and destroy the creator. Thomas believes the land is an illusion created by his own mind but nevertheless he ends up saving it wielding the white gold ring.
Where’s my high five?
i will have to read that
The first trilogy consists of “Lord Foul’s Bane”, “The Illearth War” and “The Power That Preserves”
Yes. You will. Good books.
ordering at the library right now. thanks!
Ok, now that I’ve read the whole thing, it’s totally a Potter Parody.
i had thought potter parody was a lil obvious around the 3rd or 4th page
the title is “wizards school”. nuff said.
Consider: if the GG is thousands of years old, and the “people of walmart” here are not thousands of years old, then they didn’t build it. graham and company are seeking help from the idiot sons of the builders.
Yes, but they understand the theory. You know, storage room and how much Dragon P. and Magic Dew can go in before the magical tool bursts.
There might be something they can tell the people about it.
Very short hand! :V
Oh, so THAT’S where the General Lee disappeared to!
Ya’ suppose they have Daisy Duke and Uncle Jessy stowed away somewhere, too?
was wondering if anyone else had noticed that
Oh man, how many colors of Magic Dew are in that machine?? My favorite right now is white magic dew, but I also love the classic flavor.
