Episode 391

Read the comic here.

I like the strange balance between the sheer goofiness of the idea of Whiskey's hair coming to get them...and how creepy panel four turned out.

Will the hair take over one of those flesh-less skeletons from Episodes 376 and 377, and then go beating the crap out of donut?

Christopher Doyle said...

Santaji: It's not giving too much away to let you know that the hair doesn't *need* a host body at this point - why that is will be explained explicitly tomorrow.

I liked it,But what the heck was the red thing in panel 4?

Christopher Doyle said...

semi brick:
That's a tentacle. Think John Carpenter's "The Thing".
It's supposed to be hard to make out - you'll see the full "Hairpiece" next week.

Doyle: Whiskey and Donut are about to have one hell of a 'bad hair day'. :D Sorry, couldn't resist.

I do think it's a little TOO complicated, though, that Whiskey's hair suddenly comes to life just like that. You might end up doing backstory for the hair's time spent in the advent calendar.

Is there any word on how long judging for the Steampunk 50 bricks or less contest will take to get completed?

Christopher Doyle said...

Geoffrey:

Tomorrow's dialog clears up why the hair is moving around - there really isn't any extra backstory for the hair, it was with Whiskey all the time.

As to the Steampunk judging, I heard from Jake yesterday - he's nearing completion on the spreadsheet and hopes to have it done in the next day or two. Remember, there were a *lot* of entries to evaluate.

Yes, I know.
A record!
Does the ''Hair of Doom''
take Whiskey with him and put donut in the freezer?
Or is it going to be sucked in the Time-Space Chili?
I can't wait.
Yay for Eastern, I have no school tomorrow!
I'm very glad, because I had 4 tests!
So yay!

Don't you just hate it when your hair does that?

This story arc reminds me of an 80's Twilight Zone story wherein a vicious monster posed as a toupee. Bald men would put it on their heads and kill people and such, controlled by the toupee.

Maarten said...

LOL, I remember something similar.

nice use of tentacle, doyal, but is the whole body of the hair going to be as simpe as i think it will?

let me refrase that...

is the actual build of the hair "body" going to be simple, or do you have some weird and complex way to give hair a tentacle?
