I did and came up with it is like CatDog, being a DogDog.
I think it’s the same head in both places. Kind of a Mobius thing.
Makes me wonder how the incredibly natty Gabe handles this trip. Hip boots?
Well mich, welcome to hell I guess.
And the entrance is a special kind of Hell for felines, being surrounded by dogs.
So it’s a bit like the pushmi-pullyu, only all heads and mouth. …I wonder if Doctor Dolittle is around and available to help, somewhere in this multiverse. >:=?>
No, I think there is a body.
You can see some of it on the right most one, just inside its stone arch.
That’s a head and some neck. Not much of a body, and honestly expecting normalcy in skin deeps hell is an excercise in futility. Just take what you can get and move to the next oddity
I am actually relieved, was worried there would be a hellbum, glad there isn’t.
I really love the lighting and colouring effects especially on her clothing in the middle three panels. That centre “eww eww eww” panel is just plain impressive.
Yeah, I was wondering what the exit would look like too and kind of bracing myself. Because here in Tucson we have a really beautifully done pedestrian bridge that’s built to look like a giant rattlesnake, and you can enter from either end; it’s neat until you *think* about it hard enough.
Well, they do make you pretty much go around the tail to help starting the thought process … :-3
I wanna pet all those good boys
I guess it’s only proper that the entrance to Dis should be Dis-gusting.
You should have had a pair of sunglasses for that pun.
After walking a sticky red carpet to Dis it seems whatever is in front of her is even more freaky….
“Sorry, the Michelle brain you have reached is presently not offline. Please leave a message after the beep and it will respond to your stimulus after it restarts.”
I might want to see someone use of those like a slip ‘n slide.
I absolutely adore the different designs between the Hellmouths! Such a brilliant panel and I love how the sense of scale is more noticeable than ever.
Mich’s face says ” what the hell just happened?” No pun intended also sorry about the swears in the past few panels.
Huh, not so bad than I thought. But still, ew.
I’m both excited and worried to find out what Michelle is looking at in the next page! :D
“Wait, is this… er… isn’t this Detroit?”
“Sorry. Yeah, that was unintentional…. even a hellmouth makes mistakes sometimes. NOT sticking to the Google Maps directions is one of them.”
And THIS is the reason that even Sphinxes should wear shoes! Eeeeewwwww!
[notices that it’s apparently teeth all along the “digestive tract”]
[frantically tries to adhere to the advice and reaches for the brain bleach]
I think it’s just a double ended head. They didn’t go down the oesophagus, just out through the other face. Not that we are meant to be speculating….
Kinda thought the same. That it’s more a matter of “perspective”. Heck, it could even be the same heckmouth they came out of as the one they entered. It just is in a different place…
Imagine if the next page just had Lucifer, Beelzebub, and Astaroth chilling around a water cooler in their PJs.
So, like… did she forget that literal demons tried to drag her to hell? Because if literal demons wanted me in hell, I’d probably decline any meetings that involved going there myself.
I bet she’s the first Sphinx to ever stand in the place she’s standing. Does make you wonder where all the other mouths lead.
Can you imagine the dog breath??
When is this in relation to the “Welcome to Dogpatch” arc? That right-most head looks like the one that got killed.
Dogpatch was May of 2005. This is September of 2005, so it probably is the same Hellmouth.
I am really happy that it has a head on both sides of its end and not….
Okay, maybe I’m crazy (though I would *much* prefer you say “You’re mad! Mad, I tell you!”), but I feel pretty damn sorry for whatever those hellmouths are. Look at their freaking expressions– pure misery and resignation. I mean, seriously, what kind of existence is that even for some sort of demonic monstrosity, lying there with your multidimensional head bricked into a wall on multiple planes with random people tramping across your tongue? Poor Michelle is freaking out over the sensation; imagine being able to *taste* all that! EEEW indeed; poor things.
