Handshakes 31: We Been Gripped 12 Comments Colin is too cute!;) Um…they have a dog? Why does that seem the most weird of everything I’ve seen. Well it IS a ghost dog. Phew Status Quo restored. Ghost dog. Cause you where to cheap to buy food. Panel 2, I love how Jim’s mouth curls. Jim gets the funniest facial expressions. You know what I never noticed? The end of Colin’s Tail is greenish… Dundundun! oh man I met this little british kid the other day an dhe had the cuuuutest accent! Now I can only read colin’s lins in his voice and smile xD Cripes, but “Mum” has an amazing skirt (skirts?). I want. Hmm… bird-like fore-legs. Would that make her a hippogryph? I often have trouble remembering the differences. No no, my bad. “hippo” means horse. Hippogryphs have horse or dear like rear halves; gryphon’s have lion-like rear halves (though sometimes the forelegs too, apparently, in this comic at least). Actually, the “standard” gryphon in legend and heraldry has the foreparts — head, shoulders, wings, talons — of an eagle and the hindparts of a lion. Kory has added a few variants to her canon. Rereading this during the Great February 2016 Hiatus….. Hey, is it just me, or is that a Sphinx statue adorning the church/temple thingie right behind Jim and his brother? Looks like one– leonid paws, wings, a lion’s tail peeking out from behind… Just curious. Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
