Max smile is cute ^^!!
Lord Peanut, please allow this awsome Pridelands adventure to advance. We’ll give you cookies!
ditto for Rick!
double ditto for rick!
Your characters are getting more and more expressive. I like it.
Also, creepy alt text.
i agree i think were gonna see somthing that were not suposed to see *hint hint*
Luv the way Peanut’s face looks!
aww crap 1 minute late xD
but anyways… cant wait for the next one takes 2 days to make and 20 seconds to read :/
it’s called suspense (I think), we all can’t wait for the next one, but at least there is a comic at every other day. Some comics take a week to update. This is customer service at is best… except… we aren’t buying anthing… but we do pay attention! haha *ba-dum tish!*
I think that’s called anticipation, not suspense, but yeah, I’m sure glad Rick updates the comic so quickly. I think it’s due to the fact that he doesn’t shade his characters in that he gets it done so fast, as well as the fact that the comic is never a huge page and there is never too much dialog. Even some strips that are only 3 panels or 4 panels large can be filled with too much text.
I want to meet the spirits; they seem like pretty cool guys.
BUT THEY HATE A COOL THING
I second that notion FuRrY. WHY HATE THE AWESOME? :O
I think the spirits is a pretty cool guy, eh is invisible and doesnt afraid of anything.
Max sure is a clever one isn’t he
The way Peanut looks down on Maxwell on the last panel there. it almost feels like he’s putting on the same face that Grape would.
I also find that Maxwell is quite sharp on answers.
Seems like the kind of kid who, when killed in a game, will say “Nuh-uh! I had a force-field!”
Why only Peanut? Is she like his “Guardian” or something?
Or maybe they’re psychically linked? (Tarot can send messages to Peanut from afar…) Or maybe it’s just a way to sneak into Peanut’s mind, and discover that, among his list of most wonderful things, she’s number twelve. After carob-flavored doggie treats.
or maybe ‘cuz she’s fond of him and doesn’t want to let him to suffer? After all, she *did* try to warn Grape about Peanut’s feeling for her when we first met this doggie.
Might be that she’s his girlfriend and second, she’s only linked with Peanut in that fashion.
If I had that power I wouldn’t want to use it in a social situation with some I have too little contact with…
maybe since shes a dog it can only be done on dogs?
Been reading for a few days ( caught up in the archives in a day), first post.
I think it’s because she only feels comfortable enough with Peanut. I mean, she’s barely interacted with the cats, really. Though it could very easily be the ‘only dogs’ thing, too.
Yeah,I think your right…Nice job on the strip!
LOL! once again my whole office thinks i’m insane because of this strip! Fell out of my chair laughing!
your office? at 1 AM? Where do you work?
Wait, I can figure this out. If office hours are from 8AM to 5PM, you need to be at least 7 time zones to the est of CDT (which means UTC+2) and at most 17 (UTC+12)
Okay… that basically puts you anywhere on the “old world” (Europe, Asia, Africa) plus Australia.
I vote Australia, for reasons unknown even to myself
Or he wasn’t posting during office hours.
Then… why was he in his “Office” chair?
Funny, nobody’s pointed out the fatal flaw in my “figuring out”: office hours are not the same worldwide.
Also, putting Europe in UTC+2 assumes DST has already begun, which is supposed to happen next week.
Guys, he fell out of his office chair at home and probably read it again at work.
Either that, or he does live in Europe, Asia, Africa, or Australia.
No, I work 3rd shift, 11:00pm – 7:00am. our company is a 24/7 deal.
this has been:
a series of comments referring to the original commentee in the 3rd person
Commentee or commentator?
Meh, it was worth the shot. Last person I met who worked that schedule was in the U.S. army, so I figured that was the least likely case
That’s the most animated I’ve ever seen Max.
Lol! Wow, Max is really just wanting to do this.
I guess that’s why Tarot can’t see THAT far into the future, the spirits probably just don’t mind when it’s maybe a day down the road.
They’re like Snulbug.
If you don’t get that reference find a copy of Anthony Boucher’s “The Compleat Werewolf” and read it. Before you do anything else. I mean it.
*rubs her head* I forsee… Max becoming even stupider after she looks into his mind… that or she’ll get the wrong memory and totally mess up.
perhaps get a memory of him secretly cosplaying, then embarrass him in front of Peanut and Grape?
mwhahahahahahh, grovel, base feline, grovel!
plus, for the final scorn, SPOT will save the day.
“Oh, sorry Peanut. I wasn’t supposed to include your fanart? It’s in your memories!”
ooo that would be hilarious …. a few dogs with cat’s tails in the pridelands … arff
i can’t wait to see what comes next
@rick: we know you’re not kidding
combine ideas of this comment with the ideas of the one just before it and you get…
THE ADVENTURES OF PEANUT (SUPERDOG) AND HIS GIRLFRIEND WHO’S (not?) A CAT!
whith special appearence by:
by “just before it” I mean by Anglekitt
Poor Tarot, it is so tiresome being the universe’s cheat code.
Up up down down left right left right B A Start? A B A C A B B?
How do you use THOSE codes with a psychic dog?
She’s not actually a psychic dog, she’s a psychic dog robot developed by SeGRA (Secret Government Robot Association). So she has buttons which you can press, but you either have to be psychic to press the primary override buttons in her mind, or know exactly where she’s ticklish.
SeGRA is pure win!
how about ODNETNIN:
Organization of Developing Nefariously Eccentric Telepaths that Never Insist on Normality
(spell it backwards)
She takes it pretty well actually. I want to see more of her. :3
tarot can only mind meld with eanut because she doesn’t want to go rummaging through max or grapes head and find anythign she shouldn’t or possibly hit a feline mental defeance
What on earth would a ‘feline mental defence’ be? Mental hairballs?
It’s not strictly a defense. It’s just that cats are REALLY creepy sometimes, when you stop to think about it. Pulling wings off flies then eating the flies creepy. Give a cat opposable thumbs and a mouse to play with and you’ll have a real horror show…
Yup! Creepiness, that’s us cats. >:3
Yep Tarot is now my new favorite character. done and done
high 5!….er, 4 in their case. XD
Is it just me or did Max’s ears suddenly got fixed?
I know rite when that happen
You guy’s have to look closer in the panels at how his ear is slightly turned where you dont see the shade of black which is where the bite mark is.
No, he just has his head turned so the damaged ear is edge-on to the viewer. Especially in the first two panels, the uneven edge hints at the damage we’d see in a head-on view.
Same deal as always. We’re looking at the ear from an edge, so we see the cut head-on. Notice there’s a sort of zig-zag outlining Max’s right ear.
Perspective. She is an evil queen.
you’re all wrong! tarot is obviously a healer, too, who’s presence is efacing his bite mark!
Is that like fixing? or is that like defacing, where you damage something?
interchangeable with “erasing”
Next time I’m erasing something really hard, so hard my desk wobbles, and somebody asks me, “What are you doing?” I’ll answer: “I’m efacing!”
another in our legion of word nerds!
^lengthy and sinister guffaw^
“Your majesty! I gravel at your feet! (kisses feet)”
“It’s not gravel, it’s grovel! And don’t! He’s not the king!”
I was wondering if anyone would get the reference
Heehee, it took me a second, but I got it.
when you REALLY want something XD
Oh geez, poor Max is laying it on thick. It’s a good thing Peanut read the books and loves the series.
Does this mean that Spot (Superdog) will make an appearance to save one of them from being speared in the face?
PS: Saso deserved to die anyway.
Ooh, I hope so! He might be a little out of place if Peanut writes his dailogue, though :p
Oh I bet he’d react fairly well to Grave grovelling at his feet.
Grave? Darnit, is it just me or is nobody spelling anything right lately? Or am I just tired from the LAN party I went to (24 hours straight, woohoo!) and I’m not interpreting things how they should be?
Actually, i read that perfectly, it’s just you.
So wait… Peanut would want Max to continue licking his feet… after he’s got up? That’s… a disturbing mental image, at best. xP
not what you think, i assure you. In most cartoons these days when someone has something they really want, they immediately grovel over it only for that person to show no interest in groveling, but also correct him that he never told him to stop either, to be either mean spirited, devious or just to scare them.
Of course, Rick kids!
I was kidding too :p just pointing out a funny miscalculation in the alt text (which was for the gigges anyway).
I sure hope Tarot doesn’t stumble upon Peanuts *ahem* ART!
Aaahhhhhhhhhh! blast from the past!
Wow things have changed!
Especially the art! (and I’m sure the artist has changed over the time since that comic, too!)
Oh May… how much do you annoy me? Oh well… at least now everything is dependent upon Peanut being nice. Plot twist time! >:)
This is really getting interesting =3 !!!
I smell a gryffe in the future.
He’s a spirit?
Tarot looks xtra cute when she’s upset
While your down there…
But if you reach into the future to get the memories of a book your going to read, wouldn’t that make you have to read it, even if you didn’t want to?
of course! but not right now!
I think the problem is she is psybound to Penut so she needs to get the information for the images from his mind. He is the storage disk for the image files so to speak
Oh god… with Peanut’s memory it’ll probably end up looking like one of his comics. ;D
And who but Peanut can play Spot (Superdog)?
The answer is nobody.
well, if you insist
A cat, bowing to a DOG??? (and lo, as I opened the sixth seal; and sun became as sack cloth and the moon as blood…)
Well we do have dogs and cats living together so why not mass hysteria.
Because I’m not ready for Revelation yet!
^Fifty points if you can Guess which comic that’s from~^
Changes by Matt Howarth?
Hey! I’m the one who gives out useless points here! (argent stonecutter knows what im talking about)
I’m gonna say “Concession”.
And the angel clothed all in white opened the Iron Book, and a fifth rider appeared in a chariot of burning ice, and there was a snapping of laws and a breaking of bonds and the multitudes cried “Oh God, we’re in trouble now!”
You know, I really have to ask who her owner is. Anybody have that question cross their minds before? O_o
… maybe she’s a stray? she did show up totally out of the blue
I dunno, she DOES have a rather fancy collar, unless it comes with the job or something.
1) she would’ve been identified as a feral from the local k-9 cops
2) she lives with the cat Sabrina, just like several mixed pet couples in this neighborhood
1+2 = Stray NOT
Tarot lives with Sabrina, and we know Sabrina has an owner, because he/she hates mice http://www.housepetscomic.com/2009/02/16/ohh-diss/
Boyohboy, looking back at all the comments, I seem to have a part in every conversation. Also, I really enjoy using italics and bolded lettering, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing, yesno? (I love that word)
Peanut is missing out on prime friend-slave time.
I wish I would’ve read the Pridelands. I don’t need the “spirits” to know the up coming comics will be talking about parts in the Pridelands I won’t understand because I didn’t read it. =( Heck, I didn’t even know such a thing as the Pridelands existed until I started reading Housepets…
I think the Pridelands series in Housepets only exists in the Housepets world.
So we all wish we woulda read them.
Oh… Well I feel stupid… >.>
Perhaps you could start a Pridelands book? If you’re not a writer, that’s fine – neither am I.
When I searched “Pridelands” to see if there really was such a thing, only results related to The Lion King appeared.
Maybe Pridelands has to do something with Lion King? After all, Peanut’s fan-comic did have a Hyena in it.
reply to FuRrY if you want to join us in writing this epic book. by the way FuRrY, you’re writing a book now.
I’m pretty sure that the Housepets Pridelands is their equivalent of Jungle Emperor/Lion King. We know how buff feral wolves are, and how domestic dogs react to them, so the feral lions in the Housepets world must really be something.
“But there’s a LION on the bag!”
Will there be cake??
No. The cake is a lie.
But there will be Ice Cream! (But only Neapolitan.)
But… I thought pie was a lie. D:
so… no team of literary artists?
Man what people wouldn’t do for hallucinogens.
Great, now everytime I see Tarot I’m gonna be thinking that she is a blackbag project from some org to make a living form of ‘ACID’????
This is an interesting way to cause a more chaotic storyline…
Max is turning into quite the unlikeable character… sort of like Bino Lite but without the broken bones or rank stupidity.
The comeuppance will be interesting.
And maybe Grape will at last understand he’s just a manipulator and is taking advantages of her.
Max actually doesn’t bother me much. A highly-experience cat, with a violentandcynical girlfriend, who lives in a house with Bino, who gets energy from being annoying? And he still is friendly to most people? Seems likable to me.
violent and cynical*
Habit of fixing my typos is troublesome…
Has anyone else noticed that this is the 3rd time Peanut’s feet have been mentioned and/or seen in this arc?
no. Why go to such lengths as to mention the creepy way you did?
Do you have a foot fetish or something? (Or rather, a paw fetish?)
so if i may ask, will there ever come a day where pride lands will exist outside of the house pets comic strip?
That, my friend, is anyone’s guess. I’d read it.
I like where this is headed.
I know who that alt text was for :3
