No update next Tuesday! I am going to ECCC this weekend and I was not able to get the next page done in time, I’m so sorry!
But speaking of ECCC!
I will be at ECCC this weekend! Booth 20815, for Cautionary Fables and Fairy Tales! I’ll be at the table with a bunch of friends, including Kel McDonald, Evan Dahm, Bones Leopard, and Meredith McClaren! I’ll be selling CRYPTID T-SHIRTS for the very first time at a convention! You’ll also wanna swing over to Booth I 03-4 in the Artist Alley and pick up the newest issue of Almost Real! I have a big entry there, all about SPHINXES. So come say hello!
I’m also proud to announce that I’ve joined KNIFE BEETLE, a comic webring for long-form webcomics! Do you like Skin Deep? Would you like to read more comics like it? Check out the other comics on Knife Beetle!
It’s nice of Vera to warn them of upcoming pain.
Woah it’s early!! Also as an Irish person thank you for not using ‘British Isles’ instead of ‘ Great Britain and Ireland’, its an easy mistake but it means a lot to us when you avoid it!
Yay, early update! :)
It’s late Tuesday night here, I’m seeing this as a late update. Any and all updates are good updates though!
That last Mich face. Brain forming words “Um, -how much- hurt exactly?”
“About fifteen DiSPUs.”
“‘Dis Standard Pain Units’.”
Or if you want to use SI units, around 650 Hurtz.
Vera lives in Hell. If “she” thinks this is going to hurt, I am not surprised that Michelle goes wide-eyed.
Poor Vera looks like she could use some arnica.
ARNICA: Arnica is an herb that grows in Europe and the U.S. It’s often used as a skin treatment for bruises, aches, and pains.
JoB’s comment is a jape about ARNICA and AMICA looking similar in lower case due to the r and n running together to look like m.
To answer the question, ar nica is a healing herb used for bruises and bone-knitting, similar to comfrey. It often gets used to make an ointment. It’s not great for broken skin, but better as an ointment or a poultice on bruises and the skin above bones broken under the surface. I have also seen arnica in tablets, but don’t know if it would work as effectively through the digestive system.
Also, amica means friend. I think Vera could use both!
I love that the hellmouth painting has their tongue lolling out to the side like that. Really makes them look like a big dopey dog
Erh… yes, why is the tongue lolling? For some reason I’m thinking hellmouth that received a blow or something like that.
Oh boy. This is going to be a wild ride isnt it?
Yes. Yes it is.
This totally isn’t a trap or anything.
I sense a trap.
So Vera probably does not know much Geography, but she perhaps understood basalt columns. Those actually pretty widespread, we have them even here in Central Europe, but my vote is for Iceland. :)
Actually, the place where they hellmouthed into Dis (see from ch1p6 onward) has been identified as Fingal’s Cave back then.
