The Blessed Arrival

La resurrección del lagarto pollo!

Finally, a new comic. My actual human life has been getting in the way of my comic-productivity for the last week. I have solved this problem by cutting off all contact with the outside world for at least the next two months. If you need me, I’ll be chained to my computer with a stylus driven through each of my hands like so much webcomicy stigmata.

AUSTIN, TX FANCY BASTARDS: Come to THIS in December or WE’RE THROUGH!

THINGS OF TUMBLD INTEREST: 

COMMENTERS: So it seems Eli is now the steward of the great bird-headed serpent god of Mesoamerica that will (or has) return to Earth and usher in the world ending 2012 situation. Fun times. Which horrific beast of world (or at least city) destruction would you most like as a pet? Which would you rather actually destroy us all? My vote for both scenarios goes to whatever sort of Norse frost giant is going to really fuck shit up come Ragnarok.

  1. I recognized Grig right away, but I could not remember the title for The Last Starfighter. I had to check IMDB for 80s Sci Fi movies. I haven't seen it since I was a small child. Why isn't it on Netflix?!

  2. The giant hand from SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER Cabin in the Woods. Alternatively, Cthulhu, because you can't go wrong with the classics.

  3. Wasnt he supposed to be a feathered serpent? Im pretty sure I dont remember a big chicken with a lizard tail from mythology studies

  4. Songs that the Hyades shall sing
    where flap the tatters of the King
    must die unheard in
    dim Carcosa

    What can I say? I love the classics. The Yellow Sign birthed my love of horror.

  5. For me it would have to be Clifford the Big Red Dog, but only after he either turned zombie or lost a backyard scuffle to Cujo.

  6. I thought Fenris was the destroyer for Ragnarok? Loki's kid that's a dog…and I hear he's not housebroken either…Although Clifford sounds good too.

  7. I'd love to be "destroyed" by a bunch of faggety tween non-scary monsters. But since we can seldom choose the path of our own demise –

    Sta-Puff marshmallow man, obviously. The only destructor that was chosen so.

  8. Meeps of 5secondfilms, while just another cute, fuzzy thing that multiplies and conquers, are still surrounded in so much mystery that I for one would love to have one as a pet just to see how it destroys me

  9. Greetings Starfighter! You have been recruited by the Star League to defend the frontier against Xur and the Quetzalcoatl armada!

  10. I loved the 'Last Starfighter' – and Grig showing his family pictures ['10,000 little Griglings']. Robert Preston was -fantastic- as Centauri … a riff on Professor Hill from 'Music Man'. It was such a good movie. As for the chicken/lizard, IMO 2nd ed D&D did it best with the 'couatl'

  11. Awwwwwwww, that widdle glowing chicken-snake is ADORABLE!!! Who's an abomination to all creation? You are! Yes you are! And as for a world-dstroying pet, my 1st choice is Fenrir from Ragnorok, followed by whatever freakshow's supposed to show up for Armageddon.

  12. I always like mollusks. I guess I could go for an illithid-looking old god in a 10-gallon fish tank. You know; feed it creatures five times its size, watch it speak its maddening languages at the airstone clam. Warp my perception of what is real when I tap the glass.

  13. HAHAHA! I was wondering a couple comics ago when someone predicted Quetzalcoatl reborn, and you just responded "…"
