Superdog looks awesome in the first panel!!
Saso looks awesome in the last panel!!
Indeed and speaking of Saso, does that shock expression of Saso’s remind you of HomeAlone for some reason?
More Edvard Munch’s “The Scream”, but that’s because I live with a Norwegian minoring in art as a roommate.
Kevin Macallister’s expression in Home Alone is Edward Munch’s “The Scream”
Ya I does remind me of Home Alone.
Spot looks so awesome in EVERY pannel.
But Spot isn’t in the third panel
the panels in this comic and every other comic’s
He’s so awesome he’s even awesome in panels he’s not in. He’s so awesome he scares Chuck Norris.
Saso look pretty awesome in ALL the panels.
Bah, Tarot cheatin, looks like she’s still gotta get the hang of “pretend”
I don’t think she’s cheating. She’s simply using the logical conclusion Saso would come to under the same circumstances. Peanut, however, wants to do the explanation of what’s going on.
Tarot! You forgot your spoiler tags!
That’s because she’s only got dog tags to work with
Tagging within city borders isn’t a good idea, since Hyena City adopted a no-tolerance policy towards graffiti.
Its still “pretend”, after all
Tarot found a clue! To solving the mystery Gang!!
We need to set a trap so we can catch the monster!
rWolf, Blue Anubis, you two have to lure the monster into the bear trap, while i’ll stand over here and look pretty.
They would have gotten away with it if it wasn’t for those
Kid’s who are turning into metal? Now there’s an original concept…
It’s the heavy-metal hair that does it.
Wait so Saso’s female…I thought Saso was a male in Spot(Superdog) comic strip D:
I think Saso IS male, but since the only other male players, Max and Peanut, are taken up with alternated identities, and since Tarot has to be present in both scenes, she has to play the extra characters, even guys.
that one i DIDN’T see coming. i was hoping Saso was played as herself but THAT’s cool. Tarot still needs to stop using the power to see the future at these times.
She’s not using her powers to see the future; she’s using logic. Unfortunately, Peanut wants to give all the exposition.
logic smogic, she can see the out come before it happens because she is using peanut’s memories to form this Image pojection. she already deducted this from her ability to see the FUTURE. lols
I thought tarot was a bird. 0.o Anyways, title pun win.
I think she’s just bouncing around between characters, since they have to work with a large cast and there’s only four of them.
Like Grape was “N expendable sidekicks” in the previous adventure.
Criminy Spot is buff! Give Miles a good arm wrestle, I’ll bet!
Also lol @ Tarot. Don’t worry, you’ll get the hang of it.
And the city criminals would’ve gotten away with it too if it wasn’t for those meddling kids and their dog :V
Their extremely buff and super powered talking dog of super awsomness. (Scooby Doo can go suck eggs Spot is the new mystery solver dog.)
Thats what I said!LOLOLOLOL!!!
“Jinkies”? I think this takes place in a earlier time. “Jinkies” is a modern term. So Tarot should also watch her slang to meet the time with takes place in.
“jinkies”, diminutive for “Jinx”, was used as an expeltive by Daphne from Scooby Doo… 41 years ago. How much “earlier” did you want it?
Actually, it was Velma, the well-read, orange turtleneck-wearing member of the gang. I should know… I use this term from time to time.
Speaking of time, there are tribal societies that survive even to the modern day. This could just as easily take place in an (altered) alternate here-and-now. Yet, you have a point, Honoré- it’s doubtful.
As sad as it is, I’ve heard MANY people say “jinkies”…
Hush you! “Jinkies” is made of awesome!
I would agree.
Anyway this is getting good
“what would YOU do for a Scooby snack?”
Ah come on man! you know I’m trying to quit!
sung to klondike bar jingle?
Lol, nice. I’m sure Tarot will get the hang of this soon.
So ummm is Saso a girl or is it just that Tarot is currently masqurading(sp) as him? Cuz ive always thought male and all the other hyenas are wearing more or less tribal clothing. Or at least cult member garb with the robes and what not.
Re-read the third panel and you’ll get your answer
*Facepaw* umm duh yea thats me completely of my rocker wow. thx
Hyena gender is kind of special anyway.
Ew. I did not need to be reminded of that
I hope that was onomatopeia, ’cause if you meant the cement company there could be trouble
Eh, 80’s metal hair makes everyone’s gender ambiguous.
Now I’m imagining Saso wailing away on a keytaur on the Sunset Strip. I think my brain’s trying to kill me (with AWESOME [y/n]?) .
it is nigh impossible for me to hear Saso with a voice other than Tarot’s voice in this scene, and I suspect that will be true for the rest of the game.
I also wonder how she would say “Rot in a croc’s stomach you decrepit sonova-*Spear to the face*”? perhaps something along the lines of “Go get eaten by a croc you big meany head!”
I’ve been trying to find that quote for the past hour with no luck.
I remember it, but I don’t remember where I read it. Do you have a link?
http://www.housepetscomic.com/2009/04/03/aka-the-non-canon-adventures-of-spot/ in the alt text, which I found through the “Spot (superdog)” tag
Ah, that would explain why I didn’t catch it right away. Thanks.
Wasn’t that Indiana Jones or that one movie where the guy and the girl crash their plane and are all of a sudden stuck in the middle of some treasure hunt in like brazil or something?
Tarot’s _voice_? What would be it?
Whoopi Goldberg, alternating between Guinan and Shenzi.
HAHAHAHA! This is PERFECT! Beats Velma in every aspect, including the sarcasm in “Jinkies!” =D
nigh=”now”, not “not”
ex. the end is nigh
I always heard “nigh” meant “near”
I think BlueAnubis meant “It is nigh impossible for me not to hear…”
See what not including one word can do?!
I do so love this language of ours.
Anything can make sense if you arrange it correctly!
There’s a slim chance that I’ll say “fat chance of that”!
So wait. Was Tarot also technically the hyena Spot (Superdog) punched out in the last strip?
She’s “guiding a little bit of everyone else”. Maybe she wasn’t “in” that hyena, but was more accurately puppeteering him. I don’t know, we’ll have to see if she explains it better as the arc advances
Double YUMMY! For the panel one. There’s never enough hotawesomeness
So, now we know that Saso was of the good guys, not a minor villain?
Also, the way Saso’s drawn in panel onem he looks like he’s got a bad lipsitick smear over his muzzle
Spot keeps looking cute when he’s angry!
Honestly, these mistakes can be easily forgiven.. after all, she can make these “roleplaying” sessions hyperrealistic
not to mention she’s a f—t-timer at playing pretend.
Really, Peanut should be more considerate -though, after all, he’s never been Spot before
Peanut is just being a bit overprotective of his little alternate universe, now that other people are living it too. : )
But I agree with you guys.
LOL! you bleeped out the ordinal of 1!
*gack* *no gravvie therefore it means no email address* *gack!*
Does changing a lowercase to an uppercase suddenly void your Gravvie?! *ACK!*
Uh oh, I think I see where this arc is headed. Peanut’s getting a wee bit too wrapped up in his character… and his friends are starting to feel it.
Shame that he couldn’t be as laid back about the whole thing as Grape and Max… he could’ve had some real fun with this whole Hyperreal Sensurround thing….
I think that Peanut just likes to explain things. His Spot (Superdog) comics have a lot of unnecessary explanations, and he probably has matched Joey in ’supplemental materials’. Naturally, if he’s playing the rescuer he’d like to explain *why* the person needs rescued.
Quick! hide the “not a chocolate bar or brick, it’s a gun” arrows!
Actually, I was kinda hoping it’d be a chocolate bar, Imma kinda hungry.
Jinkies? What’s next, Yoinks? Excellent Scooby reference there. Meh. And why is Tarot playing Saso? Isn’t he male?
You want them to invite Bino over to play Saso? They’re playing the game (no, not that “the” game, which I must’ve just lost…again) with only four players. With Tarot controlling the mental projection, she’s “guiding a little bit of everyone else”. Basically, she’s the computer, and “everyone else” is a computer-controlled character. However, apparently she needs to physically step in as them when it’s a major character, causing this hilarity
A crazier statement has never been written. I wonder if they can persuade King to join in.
Peanut: “King, why are you suddenly a human?”
Tarot: “Oops… let me fix that.”
King: “Nooo… I’m FINE with …. aaaaaagh….”
Oooh. That’s worse than a slap to the face with a loaded milk carton. At least it’s all in their heads. And that opens up a new question as to WHAT Pete would do about it.
For more drama, bring in more characters:
Peanut: “King, why are you suddenly a human?”
Tarot: “Oops… let me fix that.”
Fox: “Wait a second, you look familiar…”
LOL. Best comment yet, Argent!
Methinks that might be another spoiler!
“Ack! Spoil police! Run, Argent, RUN!”
(ducks into a telco cable run)
Someone else want to rub his back?
Who’s back? Spot’s? Saso’s? Peanut’s? or (debatably because you used “his”) Tarot’s?
based on the puddle – scratch that – LAKE of drool at valerios feet, id geuss spot
Right on the spot!
Tarot realy doesn’t get what acting to the character means right? XD
Great strip can’t wait the next one.
Actually, she does. The problem is Peanut wanted to do all the explaining about what’s going on.
heh, it has to be Tarot messing with Peanut/Spot’s head again ^ ^ ….
Heh. this is funny. Saso with a girly voice. Though I must admit I didn’t remember Tarot was “guiding” him until Peanut called it in Panel 2 (I’m giving spot an amplified version of Peanut’s voice, to match the coolness of the character, if anyone’s wondering)
Again, voice? Is there some video with voices for them?
Frank’s talking about the voices in his head.
Ok, that sounded wrong. I’m going to need a shrink
Frank, COME BACK TO US!
TO CANDY MOUNTAIN! (reference…?)
Tarot is powerful, cute, and weird. I love it. She’s multitasking too!
AND Scooby Doo, or more specifically, Velma reference! X3
panel 1 and panel 2 spot FTW :3
Lol, peanut’s a godmoder
Love jinkies and Tarot, this arc makes me wish Pridelands was for real, it seems so cool. I wonder if/how Max and Grape, will stumble upon Peanut/Spot and Tarot/Saso, though M & G have already met Tarot as the bird.
Lol! What will they think when they see Tarot as another character!!
“You can’t be two characters Tarot!!!”
Aaaaand picturing Tarot with Velma’s voice.
I beetz u all!
Maybe Tarot is a little frustrated she doesn’t get to play a better role. Its like the equivilant of pretending to be April O’neil while someone else gets to play Michelangelo.
Bounarotti? Oh, April O’neal. Green characters . Nevermind.
Saso needs a hug!
Great. So Peanut is a primadonna and Tarot is a critic.
xD loved the whole last frame. Love how Tarot’s expression comes out in these other characters.
Rick,I love your comic..
Indeed, me too. :3
Me three!!! ^.^
i luv it so much, i skip 5.
We ALL do! 9.999.999…..
Luv the comic, -infinity. XP
Darn, can’t beat that…
ah, what the heck! Yes, I can!
Love the comic, to alternate dimensions where it is real. How can that not beat infinity?
you know, if i had the ability to image poject like Tarot i’d do something like this to. imagination and pretend would keep me away from video games. hell i bet video games would be some good insperation for crap like this.
Most likely the other way around. Your mental projections would inspire some good video games. Hey! I just got a new get-rich-quick scheme!
awesome comic *hits next button* oh darn I hate waiting for next comic
I just noticed those are barrels in the background. Are they still in “the city”?
They’re in a cellar, it looks like. Probably under a tavern, that being the traditional place for conspirators to hide.
spot backlit to btightly
That’s because he’s standing in the cellar door.
I concur. Hmm, yes. Very much so.
Still no sight of Stripe (who, despite all apperences, is not a cat), Cyborg, or that guy in a dress….
Hey! Saso looks cool.
jinkies! just jinkies!
Wow, to have to look over all of this has got to be putting a strain on Tarot. Hope she can keep this up!
I shudder to think what may happen if she loses control… O.O
O.o you probably revealed the whole story arc. XD
Oh, no. Scooby-Doo reference >.>
watch out! changed ye olde avy!
(and this time, its not fnar!)
You haven’t told me –
what are your avvie’s from?!
(And sorry if you have; I just don’t feel like looking back for it!)
His previous avatar was from Jack.
This one I don’t recognize.
I’d like to petition for more of this arc. Big Cats and Big Dawgs in barely covering clothes are epic.
Tarot/Saso is too huggable, too.
*signs petition and agrees with Argent*
Good, I’m done now, my digital pen’s all out of ink! (Hey, if this were Animal Crossing that would be possible!)
Now I won’t be able to read this without hearing Velma’s voice as Tarot…
Is it just me, or are there more readers almost every comic? Either that, or I just take too long to read it, because I keep having to scroll down farther and farther to get to the end of the comments…
Great, thanks to Evanne now I read Tarot’s voice as Velma!
Also, I think Tarot is a great actor for Saso! It’s much more interesting when a girl who has delved deep into your mind plays as a boy character! Though I guess it’s kinda creepy too, I mean Peanut encounters each of these characters knowing it’s Tarot, so it’s kinda hard to relate to the character you’re talking to when it’s somebody else. Maybe that’s why it’s so hard for us ‘older’ (or should I say, more mature) people to play pretend; we have a hard time imagining our friend as something else.
Female hyenas are more masculine than the males anyway.
…wait a minute…is “Pridelands” an ACTUAL book series? o___O
Yes… but it’s not the same. The Pridelands series in this comic is far different from the Kindle version you can find on Amazon.
Spot looks awsome as an original person!
