You have an uncanny feeling...

@ "Hmm, what have we here?"

You see here an unfinished headstone. You read: "anticlimatic the samurai, killed by a newt while frc"

@ "Huh, that's odd...I wonder wh--"

The invisible Hachi wields a gravedigger corpse!

The invisible Hachi hits! The invisible Hachi hits! The invisible Hachi casts a spell at you!..

...but you can't take the little dog out of the lich.

So I guess anticlimactic was frozen by the floating eye while his little dog
Hachi was polymorphed into a lich by a polytrap. Not getting why the L is "invisible" but still appears in the last panel. Or maybe, just not getting it.

It has been to long since I posted. To the admins: did my strip get rejected?

#3 anther Fri, 6 Jan 2012 22:56:28
I fear I need an explanation for this one.

Sorry if this one is rough around the edges, it's my first attempt at a post. Just assume that Dudley has the "See Invisible" intrinsic already.

It's basically a bones level that accounts for the seldom mentioned fact that someone must come by and bury each character, erecting a tombstone in their honor, and what would happen if someone's pet happened to step on a polly trap during the burial process.

Cute. At first I thought the gravestone was unfinished because it was waiting for him, but then I realized what had happened.

Another nitpick: The gravestone would be "while helpless" (or "while hel"), I suppose.

Perhaps there could be one where Dudley was killed by Candle Jack while hel

I like the idea.

I thought the Wizard of Yendor dug the graves, seeing as he signs at least some of the headstones.

Yeah, and if we don't get some new comics soon, He'll be signing the webcomic as well.

#5: It'd be "while frozen by a monster's gaze" if they play on NAO.
