    Hi Skidd, I spotted a typo in panel 4 bubble 3: “you’ve been limping THE whole way”.

    His mimic sure reminds me of how to train your dragon.

    • neksuscat .

      I bet it’s a HTTYD reference with Toothless hurking half of a fish to Hicking. x3

    • Eto Randyll

      The emphasis would be on “whole”
      as in “you’ve been limping the WHOLE way.” the whole is raised and the way is softer then the rest of the sentence, similar to but different from a questioning tone of voice.

      See? Just because I have Asperger’s Syndrome doesn’t mean I’m incapable.

      • Phuufy

        Oh we just had a typo earlier on, it was “Limping to whole way..” so we fixed it to “Limping the whole way.”

      • Zarylo

        Rest assured that I only meant well and never meant to portray anyone as incapable.

  • Jackson Miles

    Quit acting tough Farron.

  • somebodywhoknowsthings

    I love Claire’s face in panel 3, also I was wondering, when Scrab is in his “animal form” are any items retrievable or does he have to transform back into backpack mode, and if they are, does he hack them up or do you have to pull them out?

    • neksuscat .

      I just hope Farron won’t shove his hand into Scrab’s mouth orrr.. Any other holes in particular, to get the stuff he needs out.. >.>

      • somebodywhoknowsthings

        actually I thought it would be kind of funny if Scrab “pooped” it out kinda like how Buttstallion does it in the Borderlands 2 dlc “Tiny Tina’s Assault on Dragonskeep” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=USxQyYUAaoo

  • Jonathan Vasquez

    Just back away slowly Kibbles. Claire is having a mental break down.
    Claire’s tendency to explain everything reminds me of the book “Mountains of Madness”. Sometimes Claire, things can’t always be explained no matter how curious you are. Otherwise, you’ll go mad. Completely, I mean.

  • Franky

    So did Scrab kill someone or just cause permanent injury to someone?

  • MrAMP

    Don’t worry Farron, we all have skeletons in our closet. You just have yours in a bag. XD

    • Alex Smith

      But his skeletons are literal… Yours aren’t literal, right? RIGHT???

  • cr1ms0n t1ger

    The last panel: So innocent and adorable. Who’s a cute, little, blood-thirsty mimic? Yes u r. YUSH U R.

    And, Claire: It makes perfect sense. You’re just too disturbed to notice the pattern that’s been building up.

  • Majinkoba

    oh no, I have seen this before, acute Science withdraw. We are going to need beakers, a Bunsen burner, a chalk board with equations written on it, a computer monitor, and a panel with lots of LED’s lighting up randomly, stat!

  • GG1

    Also noticed a typo in what’s Claire’s saying in 2nd panel, unkown, should be unknown, and I hope that’s not Mason’s arm scrab spit out.

    • Phuufy

      Oops, seems there was another typo! x_x; Also no, it’s not Mason’s arm.. Scrab only just returned.

      • GG1

        Well, that’s a relief, did scrab bite off the guard’s arm or did he eat him whole? Feel sorry for the guards.

  • Volpethrope

    Oh good, confirmation that he murdered town guards attempting to stop him after he committed theft. I was already sort of sick of him and how no one in this group was treating like the piece of shit he is, and how they react here will either make or break the believability of this entire story for me.

    • Phuufy

      Well, he just did get griped out by Sesame and beat up by Mason. Kibs even yelled at him when he was attempting to steal the caravan – just because she’s showing some empathy for him here doesn’t mean he’s “forgiven”. It’s just in Kibbles nature to help others. As for murder goes, Scrab has a mind of his own. It’s a tamed monster, but a monster none the less. It was just meant to be some dark humor added in.

      • Volpethrope

        He released it on them knowing what it would do. Its nature doesn’t absolve his intent. He’s responsible for it. There’s a line between dark humor and the party condoning the murder of an innocent man. This is definitely making me uncomfortable with the tone of the comic, if something like that can just be tossed out as a joke that won’t actually have any consequences.

        • Skidddog

          Who’s to say that arm even belonged to one of the guards? Suffice to say, this comic is gonna have conflict. (Refer back to page 3 when we did the same thing with the dark humor.. and then touched up on it again later.) If THIS is gonna make or break the comic for you, and you can’t stand the idea of there being cause and effect popping up here and there through-out the comic, then this comic is not for you.

          • Volpethrope

            I get that. I was just voicing my concerns. There’s a point where people would logically stop associating with someone or even take action against them. As far as the party knows, Farron just caused the death of at least one innocent person, or at the very least grievous, life-threatening injury. It would take some amazing moral apathy to continue treating him like an ally after that. I’ll wait and see how it plays out, because I’ve enjoyed the comic so far.

  • eccos

    Lots of ppl picking out typos in this comic, but I haven’t seen anyone mention the typo for “sponsored”.
    It was that way since the start of the comic, which was corrected eventually, but then it went back to “sponsered” at around the Halloween comic.

    • Zarylo

      Well, that shows what is generally paid more attention to. Additionally it’s more subtle.

  • Alex Smith

    When did it start raining? Did I miss when it started raining?

    Edit: I went back, and back, and back, before October… I guess it’s been so long I just forgot that it was raining. (*taps my memory receptacle, stop forgetting, that’s not your job*)

  • Stephen Gilberg

    “Remiss” is an adjective, not a verb. But Kibbles is likely not to know that, so I don’t blame the cartoonists.

    • TriACutNinja

      It’s not supposed to be a verb it is supposed to be an adjective. Remised means: lacking care or attention to duty; negligent… Don’t see how that is supposed to be a verb.

      What she is saying is she would not be doing her job if she didn’t ask him if she could heal him, because her job is a healer.

      • Stephen Gilberg

        The “-ed” implies the conjugation of a verb. At any rate, dictionaries (including Chrome’s) don’t recognize “remissed,” only “remiss,” as in “I’d be remiss if…”

        • TriACutNinja

          -ed implies past tense

          • Stephen Gilberg

            And past tense implies a verb.

          • TriACutNinja

            So you are right. It does turn it into a verb, but that only proves you can still use it in a sentence.

            remissed:
            past participle of remiss (verb)
            past indicative (I,you,he,she,it,we,they) of remiss (verb)

            So In the case of the sentence it still fits 😛

  • DarkMyste

    Why am I thinking there going to be few bodies that scrab going to air out the skeletons of those poor idiots

  • Borderwolf

    Hmmmm, looks like Scrab is like a cat bringing trophies to his ‘daddy’ a.k.a. Farron. It might be a good idea for Farron to let Scrab have that trophy.
