Ah, the simplest strategies are often the best.
Punch to the head!!
Sticks and stones may break your bones, but a punch to the face will hurt you.
…Every problem looks like a nail.
Where did they get an urban skyline? I sense the cats complaining.
Its a hyena STATE. So anything between a territory to a city state. Also, they probably outnumber lions 4 to 1.
It’s skyscraper-like rock formations, of course!
Absolutely! Also, even if we don’t see it, it obviously has construction like interiors and window-like holes.
Oh, that’s just ancient meerkat cliff-dwellings.
For some reason, when I read that I thought of Last Resort from Halo 3 (Zanzibar, H2)
Makes me think of the line from Halo 3
Cortana: You got a plan to get us out of here?
Chief: Figured I’d shoot my way out, mix things up a bit.
“shoot first, then shoot some more, then shoot a little more, and when everyone’s dead, then ask questions later”
PERFECTLY EXICUTIED LOLS this made my day.
Wonder if he’ll remember to get away before they catch him again, or if he’ll be too distracted punching people.
The sound effects in this one are great. I love how they’re punctuated with periods. It’s like it’s a common and not-particularly exciting occurrence when it comes to Spot (superdog).
It’s just like playing one of those strategy games where you have set up towers the do a specific thing to stop a line of enemies going long a track. (Play the game Ballon Tower Defense to get what I’m talking about) Yeah, I could use STRATEGY, but it would be much easier and simpler just to drop an atomic bomb on each wave of enemies.
BTW, what is Spot (The Superdog [Peanut]) talking about in the 1st panel?
Well, Cesar Millan is the Dog Whisperer. And I figure Orphanite is his Kryptonite (I think it was mentioned in a previous installment of the Spot series)
Apparently “orphanite” (made from orphans? I don’t remember) is similar to Superman’s “Kryptonite” and saps Spot (superdog)’s strength.
As for the Cesar Millan’s ghost thing, to me it just sounds like it is a cliche’ comic book character interjection sentance, much like Robin’s “Holy ____ Batman!”…
Cesar Millan is a dog trainer… so I guess it is fitting?
Orphanite: “the distilled escence of planet Orphan… which is, of course, where all the orphans come from; it is a lot better suited to G storytelling than actually having missing parents”
…Okay… found the link, and apparently the quote isn’t exaclty as I remember it.
Spot’s qote comes straight from Superman’s Perry White guy who used to say oftten ‘Great Caesar’s Ghost’
Ok, thanks guys! I knew what orphanite was and knew who Cesar Millan was, I was just confused about why Spot (The Superdog[Peanut]) was using it.
Sorry *was using THE TERM, “Cesar Millan’s ghost!”
yeah thats tha way you do it
When in a pinch, just punch.
When in a punch… well you’ll probably be quite wet, that’s all.
Unless that punch is spiked!
uh… guys? *rimshot*
by “*rimshot*” i mean i used infliction, not the… oh never mind just put the link!
He’s probably lucky Superdog’s still weak. That’s only a heavyweight prize fighter full strength punch, I’d wager. XD
Also, Peanut’s cuteness shines through Spot’s hotness now that I can see his eyes. What a combination. <3
‘The best of two worlds’
I LOVE Peanut’s mind
Spot seems to be capable of many types of punches. We have a light “shut up, you stupid” punch ( http://www.housepetscomic.com/2010/02/03/the-intermission-of-spot/ ) and todays “knock ‘em off their feet” punch
Also, yes, you can really tell that’s Peanut. The new angle definitely helps. Let’s give Rick a big hand!
Hey Rick,Do you want my Left hand or Right hand?
There not very big though..
I totally forgot about checking this XD just now i remembered and love those sound effects!
Oh? “All the King’s Men, part 1″ charmed you a bit too much?
Heck, even his TEETH look AWESOME!
yes that is a nice close-up on the teeth…
This looks like superman’s usual Strategy! Break out of stuff and beat the nearest guy senseless. Mind you, superman wasn’t the smartest cookie either.
There was some comment on this once. I seem to recall a quite that goes something like: “Are you always this dense?” “No, only when the plot needs us to be.”
I don’t recall who said it, or where, but basically characters like Superman tend to be only as smart as the storyline calls for. Even in if the character *should* have genius-level IQ, that character will somehow miss the obvious solution until nearly the end of the plot just so that the plot *can* occur.
Gotta love those fearsome pearly white canine teeth!!
Show me ya moves!
I particularly love the realization marks from the hyena in pannel 3, and how by panel 4 all the shadows are scampering. So simple, yet so much attention to detail.
And, “How did you THINK he was going to get out of this one?” I was hoping a little bird would have something to do with it.
He’s so cute when he’s angry!
He could’ve just flown away, but I digress, punching everyone in sight is just plain awesome.
The enemies of Saso are HIS enemies.
Also, great excuse for some awesomeness (of which he’s guilty as charged!)
If Saso was a minor villain who was originally supposed to die, but in this alternate continuity Spot helps him escape… Spot is now a villain too?!
*dramatic “dun dun DUNNN!”*
Unless the hyenas are villains, which would make Saso and Spot heroes. Speaking of Saso: if Peanut isn’t Saso, what’s Saso up to?
Hadn’t Sasso died by this time period (according to Friday’s comic)?
This is the alternate universe where Spot saved Saso.
Was it ever established are the Hyenas even villainous?
They might just be another nation, not in conflict with the Lions. (Assumably the “protagonist race” of Pridelands.)
Grape actually tells us Saso is a villain whose only plot signifigance is to die. I mean, Saso’s death was supposed to fuel Chapter 8.
How did we Think he was gonna get out of this one?
By PUNCHING thinks of course!
Cesar Millan’s ghost, LOL xD
Peanut/Spot is just too darn awsome!!
awesome epicness Peanut is spot
I’ve just read your comic from the beginning and i must say one thing – this is awesome!!!! But i still hope Peanut and Grape will become couple soon You have polish support from my site GJ!
“Reality is: you are a hyena–”
“–I AM A DOG!”
Seriously, that’s what I think of when I see the comic.
Just a sudden, dreadful realization.
What if Spot was punching TAROT?!?
Well if she’s guiding everyone than he actually did that.
Nooo, he’s punching projections of enemies that Tarot created. She’s not actually guiding them (I think), rather, she’s making them act independently based on what she gleamed from Peanut’s mind.
I think those are Tarot’s eyes in the female hyena who did not get punched. I think she possesses one character at a time and puppeteers the rest.
I’d like a minute of silence dedicated to the awe of such a powerful mind.
Tarot rocks. That is all. :3
“Cesar Millian’s GHOST! If her weredead! “XD
Please don’t maul me for this but…
Optinoal sound effects:
Panel 3: Falcon.
Panel 4: PAWNCH!
Also works with Hulk SMASH and any other 2 word war cry.
*(you have been mauled)*
*Inserts a quarter*
Just two more levels and my name will be #1 on the leaderboards!
DO A BARREL ROLL!
*Orc stares at you*
*You hit Orc*
Gained 500 ESP! (Extreme Spot Points)
The internet hits! –More–
You have a meme! –More–
IT’S CLOBBERIN’ TIME!
Yeah the best strategy a superdog could posibile come up with. XD
Great job keep it up.
I just have to say this.. Spot is amazing…. that is all <3
Hahah, I love the designs of the hyenas. X3
Very good strategy… lol
everything but what I fear has been said, so I won’t reiterate it. Really, as awesome as this is, I’m just hoping that peanut remembers who he actually is. I have this feeling that, since Tarot got a huge chunk of peanut’s psyche, then peanut may be without that part, of which seemed to be a good deal of his imagination psyche. But, it’s too early to tell, so I’m not going to jump to conclusions until I see how this pans out.
Hyena: Watashi wa shinen, SHINENZU!!!
Spot: Spot… PAAAAAWNCH!
*alternate universe explodes*
This made me laugh, and I have no idea why.
Good job Spot(Super dog)!
I love how Peanut thinks. Or is it Spot (superdog)? Or is it Rick, secretly pulling the strings behind the scenes? (By the way, you don’t wanna go back there, it’s just metal rods and gears and such, nothing important at all, yep, nothing at all…)
Darn, I was hoping Spot (Superdog) would stay tied up a bit longer.
For purely plot-related reasons, I assure you.
I can’t help but respect his strategy.
Yea, I had wondered how he’d get out of this one.
It’s awesome seeing Spot as an actual character instead of a drawing.
Well.. the shortist way between two points is a strait line… usualy the one connecting somones face to your shoulder.
The shortest distance between two puns is a straight-line.
From now on, whenever I attack somebody, I’m going to speak exactly what I’m doing.
Oh no! What if they have not-special bows and try to kill him with regular arrows!?
I’m fairly certain the arrows would just bounce off…
However, it’s the spears I’m worried about. Their pointy logic-defying shape (arrows!) might overpower our hero, Spot (superdog)!
If the spears look like arrows, what would the arrows look like? Feathered spears?
I’m fairly sure some of ‘em must be made of orphanite, else capturing him woul look silly and put in too many plotholes!
I can’t wait..
Totally powergaming ;D
Mabey the cyborg and that guy in a skirt will show up…
See I was thinking that too.. to balance the pretend out.. but you know what.. this is good.. we may have to keep Spot cause he like any Paladin with a hammer.
The KISS principle never fails…
Keep It Simple, Stupid!
Heh. Not an anti-kidnap forcefield, but it works. :3
Superdog as Peanut sees him Huzzah <3
i have always lived by this principle for video games with guns… if it moves shoot it, it still moving after you’ve shot it, shoot it some more, if by some unholy chance its moving use a rocket launcher, if that fails just punch/knife it .
and i have a prime example of that working, cod6 me vs a juggernaut, i used all my ammo on it 120 shots from assualt rifle 20 from sniper rifle, i was outa ammo, so i just ran up to him and knifed him in da face, it worked >_>
Nuke it from orbit. It’s the only way to be sure.
Unless you’re dealing with giant mutant cockroaches. Then you can NEVER be sure.
ESPECIALLY if the cockroaches are green, intelligent, and been extensively trained in the martial arts.
If it moves, shoot it? Allies tend to move…
Allies don’t move as much after you shoot them!
I find the best way to kill a juggernaut is to shoot it with either a Barret 50. or a Desert Eagle if one of them is available.
Also, Hwat about Civilians on MW2? They move, and if you shoot them, YOU FAIL!
“No Russian” says hi.
Ahhh im gone for a week and when i come back to find a supermuscled doggie beefcake knocking the lights out of a hyena. I had to restart my comp because to sudden OMGness froze my processor. AHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!
I also find an amazing King story that made me sad i missed
I dont know if im ever going to go anywhere without internet again *laughs*
…wait, there are places without the Internet?
You didn’t know that?
I don’t think they have the Internet in the Pridelands.
yea i was gone camping and even if there was wifi, its just not in the spirit to be checking updates in the middle of the woods
@metaceryn o.0 You are either joking, or you’re quite naive. Wifi, even at best, doesn’t cover the entire globe. There are entire areas, countries even, without Internet connection. Just like I can’t get Wifi in my room to play wirelessly with my D.S., but I can’t move my computer (desktop) to another location so that I can stay on top of the tournament while in wireless range. >.>
I hypothesize the hyenas are wearing clothing that holds Orphanite, but, due to its radioactive nature, before being taken out for use, it is ineffective against Spot (superdog). This would explain both how they caught him and why he just Spotpunched one. The ‘magicxal/holy stones of purity,’ perhaps. They called him a witch effectively and all. Well, there’s my insane guess.
At least, Spot (superdog) doesn’t need to worry about orphanite in HIS clothes!
Not strong enough to fly yet, Spot? xD
Must think of a strategy… oh wait, break free and kick tail.. awesome!!
I Love this. BREAK. PUNCH.
