Handshakes 31: We Been Gripped


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

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.
