It’s like PB&J without burnt coffee and fake creamer. There’s just something not right about it.

Seriously, you can’t. It’s one of the standard LOA regulations. You don’t know villainy until you encounter an LOA. Muzhik April 17, 2018 at 2:53 pm 2 years ago I’m sorry — LOA? Stefinatrix April 17, 2018 at 6:25 pm 2 years ago I’m guessing “Lair Owners Association”. Muzhik April 17, 2018 at 9:02 pm 2 years ago Ahhh! The same people who prohibit you from having more than one getaway vehicle parked in front of your lair? The ones that require at least **2** exits from any underground laboratory? The ones that prohibit bumper stickers on your getaway vehicles? The ones that prohibit flying any flags in front of your house? That LOA? Mauricio, set Jabby on “kill”. Justice is about to be done. Finn Kenyon April 17, 2018 at 9:33 pm 2 years ago Also the LOA that demands the existence of self destruct buttons on all evil objects over 1 cubic meter in size, the ones that demand all evil actions have at least five minutes between initiation of the procedure and anything actually happening, and the ones that demand villainous organizations have relatively obvious and mildly groan inducing names. They play both sides. Gregg Eshelman April 17, 2018 at 2:45 am 2 years ago List of the Gounder’s Evil Overlord List adherence (or lack of) starts… HERE http://www.eviloverlord.com/lists/overlord.html Efogoto April 17, 2018 at 12:37 pm 2 years ago Oh Wezzle, why oh why would you pass up such a beautiful opportunity to use the word “oubliette”. It’s one of my favorites, and I’m not even an evil overlord. Muzhik April 17, 2018 at 2:16 pm 2 years ago @Efogoto, unless you see a pile of bones, bone-analogues, or discarded carapaces (discarded because their inhabitants are dead — D-E-A-D — DEAD) on the floor around you, you don’t have a proper oubliette. Q.E.D. Coyoty April 17, 2018 at 9:30 pm 2 years ago “Who’s in the oubliette?” “I forget.” andreas April 17, 2018 at 4:48 pm 2 years ago It is oddly reassuring to see that the apex weapon of future-tech is easily bested by pre-historic trapping techniques. Nomi April 17, 2018 at 5:07 pm 2 years ago @andreas – you get my upvote Night-Gaunt49 April 17, 2018 at 5:14 pm 2 years ago What a flaw. No means of climbing out or blasting through the walls? Or its back flash would roast them. Neat to see how easy it is to capture them. Nomi April 17, 2018 at 5:44 pm 2 years ago Those trapdoor seams were really obvious on the floor. I understand that Mauricio is naive and Jabby is arrogantly confident, but how the heck did Wezzle survive this long being so unobservant? Yeah, yeah, Law of Funny, ok. TB April 18, 2018 at 2:30 pm 2 years ago Yeah, only thing missing was a sign on the floor saying “trap door.” Toxic April 17, 2018 at 6:04 pm 2 years ago …Is the image moved very slightly to the right compared to every other page? The right edge of the comic is under the sidebar for me. Christopher Baldwin April 17, 2018 at 6:13 pm 2 years ago Thanks, @Toxic! Fixed! (I have to center each strip, or this happens, so if I err and you see it again, don’t hesitate to let me know!) 🙂 Peter Rogan April 17, 2018 at 11:15 pm 2 years ago ….and Mauricio is no longer strangely passive. But that could just be the loss of his hat. Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
