It’s hard to be dramatic when your name is “Van Mudgett”
…and talking to a guy without pants.
TOTALLY (semi) FREAKIN CALLED IT! And at 6:15 yesterday. :D
But anyhow first actual “bad guy” on The Canvas I think. Coo.
“Can we go back and try that again?”
“For dramatic appeal?”
So we meet again, Pericles Van Mudgett… *snickers* (How can anyone say his name with a straight face?)
Now that I’m near the top of the comments list, where people can see me before growing tired of all the comments and quickly scrolling down to the bottom of the page to post their own comment, might I point out that the FORUM is a rather desolate place right now?
So, who’s in Aric’s shoes? He hasn’t worn them in a while. http://blankitcomics.com/2008/07/28/new-york-style/
Why is the shovel golden? Has it become unending power source that everyone is after? Maybe the Penguins and Bugs will get involved soon.
@Shadows, See, you plant the shovel, wait three days, and a shovel tree grows. Then you can pluck the Golden Shovel. Of course, you’ll need another shovel to dig the hole in the first place.
(shrieks like a little girl) I mean ahem (manly voice) he will pay for what he’s done. sptt what has he done again i forgot.
Don’t forget to throw in an evil “mwa-ha-ha,”Pericles!
Ooooh! The shovel is *shiney*… and apparenly Pericles has learned how to travel in mist form, at least partially.
I wonder what van Mudgett’s master plan could entail. To the FORUMS!
Oh noes! Pericles Van Mudgett is back for REVENGE!!!!!
Quick! Ignore him so he becomes unimportant and turns into mist again!
Unname him so he can’t do anything!
Excellent… comic. Sorry – just trying it out myself!
I don’t think he was traveling by mist, I think he just came up from a trap door in the floor. That’s where the shaaaa comes in.
Is it just me or does he look… older?
Go Lemmo! :D That was great :D and pantsless Aric has to show his potential now! :D This is fun…
@Lemmo: Was that an animal crossing reference? Gotta love dramatic timing. Too bad it doesn’t work out too well on comics. Good try though!
@Lemmo: I love that game!!
Those with wierd names will kill us all
EPICS! Pericles Van Mudgett returns awesomely! and refrences to being in your shoes, even though Aric doesnt have any… so i guess hes only referring to Lemmo
and, ahem… um… whats with the fog cloud? is he unsettling? does he have unsettler super powers? is he unsettling? idk…
i said unsettling twice… dangit
jw- do you think they ever have to go to the restroom, eat, stay hydrated, and other basic needs or are they too defying the basic logical whatchamacallit (O_O that was on auto word thing!?!?? ps- I have the app)
and I never would have guessed… .. …… …………….. ………………… .
Huh. So I guess Pericles is gonna be a/the villain of this comic, then?
no way, Pericles is only an underling brought to power by the cookies and fueled by revenge. Pericles is a rival of sorts, but hes only 1 piece in this chess game.
$10 says he was hired by the cookies to overthrow king ginger
Been reading this from the app. Just decided to comment.
You really defined the characters well. I can imagine nearly all the character’s voices perfectly except Aric. I’m still working on his.
This is my favourite frequently updated webcomic next to Cuanta Vida. :D
you havent gotten aric yet? he was the only one of the first comic, how could you not?
Well, I think it is safe to say that this was the least surprising twist in the entire comic…
Well honestly, most of the twists in this comic were completely unpredictable anyway, this has been the only predictable twist and even then it’s a good one.
@OJ: while I don’t think they have ever slept, aye, or went to the bathroom since they got there they DID drink the Handjuice, I think that counts as staying hydrated.
omg it’s a nemesis plot! ;_;
Yay Pericles Van Mudgett is back, Let the epicness Continue. Wonder what ties Pericles has to the cookies?
Pericles has betrayed his homeland, destroyed the homes of his people, stolen the shovel of power and given it to the villainous King Ginger in order to exact revenge upon Lemmo for naming him and thus making him solid.
He even had the proper villian etiquette to rise up from below a trap door, wreathed in a sinister fog.
Since things are gearing up for an epic final battle of epicness, I anticipate an anticlimax or scene change in short order.
Im going to guess what happens next- either a duel or the palace is going to colapse first
Anybody else asking where King Ginger is in this whole mess? that was his throne right there, he shouldve been leading the attack at least, i wonder where he is.
OOH! i looked through the comics, and found that tragedy befell hamlet before Pericles was introduced to the cookies. and that King Ginger said he needed the important component AFTER the unsettlers declared the tragedy. in order: tragedy-need component-Pericles so that stomps a couple of theories…
So glad that the giant robot battle part is over. I mean, I love this comic, but that just dragged on.
Now I’m looking forward to seeing where this twist goes.
Thanks for clearing that up for me.
@Anony: Technically, Pericles could have been helping the cookies sooner. The cookie could be consoling him when Pericles is having second thoughts about what he had done.
It is also possible that van Mudgett was helping the cookies when the tragedy first befell the hamlet if King Ginger either was not informed yet or wanted a backup plan in case Pericles proved unsuccessful or untrustworthy.
In other news, I want a golden-shovel tree now. All who oppose me will be whacked over the head with my gilt entrenching tool of goldenness. MmwAhahahahahaHAaaaa!
I shall oppose you!! I will plant hose-herbs and ax-shrubs to combat your shovel trees! and if i must, saw-bushes!
we might need to look into fertilizer-flowers…
i really want to dress up as Pericles Van Mudgett for haloween…
“I shall oppose you!! I will plant hose-herbs and ax-shrubs to combat your shovel trees! and if i must, saw-bushes!

I love you. You’re awesome. XD
