alt text: what do you think you’re trying to pull, zach is not a cat and I came into this arc expecting scared cats

I think he just got owned.
Max looks awesome and the same time a little creepy lol!!
Max: The Master of Reverse Psychology

Surprisingly Ryufire i know where that picture is from…
And yes Max looks awesome
I think anyone who reads this does.
Hehe yup you guessed it!! ^w^
lol at Zach
on the other side, at least he DID try to show some grit. He just need exercise in leadership
Be vewy vewy quiet, I’m hunting wabbits!!!
*Gives one internets*
*Gives a cookie*
*Gives…one free..no…a cook-..no…Oh! I know!*
*Gives a Weegee Hat*
“What do you mean you don’t agree with Weegee! Do you know who you’re dealing with?!?”
Eh… I really think it’s just me, but Grape’s ears look a bit off in panel 2…
ai dun think so her ears seem pretty normal :3
Oops! Sorry. It’s Panel 3!!!
oh… yah dey seem ah bit slimmed-down
Oooooh, then yeah, I concur. =D
*blinks and looks at panel 2* I…don’t see it. =/
Nope, it’s just the shade of the ear…
1. Max looks creepy in panel 6.
2. I can’t wait to see what happens next.
3. Nice BG’s =)
4. Whoopee! It’s here! =D

Happy birthday bro
HAPPY B-DAY VAL!!!!!! XD
HAPPY BIRTHDAY! XD
Happy Day of Birth!
I am giving you congradulations that it has come to the day upon which you were birthed some number of years ago.
In other words, Happeh B-day!
Happy Birthday VAL!!! Have an awesome, fun and a safe birthday party!!!
Darn it. You’re not on the forums, so I suppose I’ll have to do this here.
Happy Birthday to one of our most frequent commenters.
Happy Birthday and congratulations on the “Happy Birthday Posts” chains.
Wow, as long as this strip has been out, I would expect to see 20-30 comments already. I guess that many commenters just came here every 5 minutes before, not seeing the strip was up yet each time, and still think the new strip isn’t up yet. Lulz.
well, that’s whut happened to me, and I went to sleep 5 minutes before the comic came out…E|:(
Aw, Zach is extra cute today! *hugs Zach*
Also, Max in panel 6 is awesome!
Indeed, he’s quite the devilish rogue. X3
ooo reverse psychology … isn’t it nice
Your gravatar is sweet! Yours I’m guessing?
If what’s ready? I wonder what they are up to… :p
Also, I couldn’t help but notice that he loses his flashlight in the end as well and I’m sure it’ll break – making the situation worse in the next strip.
I think he is still holding it in his right hand. He’s just holding it to where it shines on the wall behind him.
The house must be haunted!
The staircase disappears in the last panel!
nah, it’s there. Zach took his light off of it.
Look carefully in the past panel and you’ll see it.
All I’m seeing in the last panel is black.
Best thing i can suggest is adjusting the monitor. You’ll see it =)
Do you build your own PC’s
Check this out… http://s621.photobucket.com/albums/tt300/Meerkat4Me/?action=view¤t=photo.jpg
I’m building it for a friend right noaw nothing too fancy.
It’s like a PC video game virtual reality heaven!
Lol, Ya it’s mine. It’s great for my music production (filthy dubstep) and yes dalonewolf of course lots of games!!
You’re getting quite off topic here; that line of comments would have been quite a stretch in relating it to the comic. We do have a forum if you want to discuss random things like this; use it!
well… Rick used a computer to help make his comic and then post it. So technically it is related.. just saying
But… By that logic, since we’re all humans, we can discuss anthropology here.
Sorry, the anthropic principle doesn’t stand a chance against the anthropomorphic principle in a universe created specifically for housepets.
ai dunno wut u gaiz are talkin ’bout… but ai vote for argnet
I love the flashlight effects in this comic strip. Especially in panel 5. You can see Marvin’s shadow from the beam of the light.
Let’s just hope in later comics they don’t have to use flashlights to stun enemies.
Curse you “Alan Wake”!!! XP
Also Zach in panel 1&4.
When you said to use the flashlights to stun enemies, I thought ‘Luigi’s Mansion’, not ‘Alan Wake’.
I haven’t played “Luigi’s Mansion”. Is it any good?
Well…if you’re stuck with no memory stick, then the game would take you 6 hours to complete, without dieing. If you die once, that’s more hours down the drain. I spent 24 hours trying to beat that game without a memory stick -.-
It’s not that bad of a game, but it could’ve been better…
Wow that sucks. I played “Super Mario Sunshine” and it was ok I guess. IDK. Seeing Mario and Luigi wielding devices like the water pumper or vacuum cleaner isn’t my cup of tea.
BTW I applaud the fact you played this game without a memory card. I’m just glad you didn’t play a Final Fantasy game like that… did you?
eheh…no, that’d be awesome though. Sadly, I’ve never played the FF Series…
Hahaha… Oh Zach.
MAX FACE OF EPICNESS o_O
Cool! Zach seems to have gotten at least SOME self confidence, altho some intelligence may have suited him better just now
Some… and a little bit of cunning and prowess…
Maxwell: Life Troll.
I am life troll
You’re not a troll, you’re a shark.
lol nice one
Silly rabbit! Trix are for kids!
Wait a minute, why is the light shining on the last panel?
oh wait, flashlight pointing up. Derp!
Loved Max’s face in the 6th panel, and I’m glad to see some more of Zach and Marvin. Wonder what they’ve got up their…erm…fur. And I wonder how long it’ll take for Zach to get scared dropping-less.
It’s like Abbot and Costello. Now Zach’s got Bud Abbot’s voice in my head.
Bah, I mean Lou Costello.
Max: Say Zach, you got two tens for a five?
Zach: Hey, wait a minute!
it’s ah classic con trick
would the fact that cats (and I think rabbits) have low-light vision effect this?
*affect, and most likely not, since they’re bound to have poltergeists and spirits and whatnot…
…and yes, poltergeist is a funny word.
affect vs effect just ticks me off. Especially since they swap places when you verb them.
where did zach leave all his Ghost gear?
Turns out he needed a permit for a particle accelerator in this state, whichever state this is.
Oh yeah this is an interesting start. Can’t wait to see all the traps and scares.
Anyway Zach DOES have a point, I have no idea what’s his problem. X3
Oh yeah and good pont in the alttext, funny how Zach plays the leader at the begining.
Yeh, he’s absolutely right. Splitting up is like beaming down to an alien planet in a red shirt.
Max = Fred
Sabrina = Daphne
Marvin = Velma
Zach = Shaggy
All I want to know is.. where’s Scooby?
Well… you forgot Grape…
But I think that if Peanut were here he’d make a better Shaggy. And it’s always FRED’s idea to split up. And Sabrina is the Velma of psychic stuff (for who’s present).
And OH MY GOD I CAN HEAR THEIR VOICES.
Do u mean u can hear the characters talking with the Mystery Inc. voices
Or r u talkin’ hearing dead people?
I can hear the voices of the Scooby Doo Gang.
Wait. Now I’m going to think of them as doing drive-by’s on ghosts and monsters in the Mystery Machine.
Ahh! O_ð you broke my brain…
i think zack needs a brack. Peanut= Scooby
Sigh, poor zack. Rule number 1: Don’t get distracted.
I thought rule number 1 was never talk about… oooh you mean for being in haunted houses lol
Ehem, I do believe you just lost. If I’m not mistaken.
(I lost the game)
I lost by realizing I was winning
Rule #1 is don’t split up.
Rule #2 is don’t look, run!
Rule #3 is don’t touch any mysterious caskets, idols, plaques, or medallions.
There is no rule #4.
Rule #5 is don’t get distracted.
Why is there no rule #4? :/
You got distracted by no rule #4, therefore, you fail rule #5
“We gots three rules: Don’t talk back and don’t wet the bed.”
“What’s the third rule?”
“That was three rules. We don’t count so good.”
I thought rule 1 was cardio.
32 rules of Zombieland.
Rule 2: Double Tap
Max’s face in panel 3 is priceless!
Do you mean panel 6? I don’t even see Max in panel 3.
Well, he’s awesome in panel 6.
mabeh he’s talkin ’bout Zack’s face
u know haow it’s all laike >:O
No Argent Stonecutter is right I meant panel 6.. It was my bad
Doesn’t matter whose bad it is, it’s an epic face. Don’t get distracted.
Comic title! I lol’d XD
If you think about Zach was probably right
For some reason I’m imagening this happening to Marvin:
Marvin: Erm..A..Anyone here?
Satan: *appears behind Marvin* It’s just me, Satan. You want any orange, or maybe watch some slasher movies?
Marvin: *screams like a little girl an faints*
Satan: ….Sooo…You don’t like soda?
I foresee two ending:
Zach & Marvin win: it’d be only fair that the rabbit gets the upper hand for once!
Everyone loose for running away from the house at the same time and never return!
as i stated in the last comic i’m thinking BOTH partys will get scared out of the house by an uninvited third party (or person) who wants to bet that third party (or person) involves peanut
That would be…awesome, and the ideal scenario for maximum happy.
After all, we haven’t seen Peanut this arc yet.
Nope, Bino if anybody.
On second thought, I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s not Sabrina who tries to pull something. If only just to get back at Max for earlier.
Well, it could be BOTH Peanut and Tarot joining in the party…or the whole “Good Ol’ Dogs Club” that could be burning that house for Halloween…
Muhahahahaha! I like your ideas. >:)
I vote for King!
“Who died and made you king?”
“Um… I’m Zach, not King.”
I believe in third parties. But my idea is different. I think the 3rd party will consist of: Bino, Tiger, and Peanut. They just seem so likely.
This arc is another great chance for Rick to work on his lighting effects…and he’s pulling out all the stops.
Zach walked right into that one. lol.
Max and his reverse talk :3
Poor Zach X3; He tries so hard, and…oy XD;
But now the fun begins! Can’t wait to see if Max gets his tail handed to him or not ^_^
I’ve always been fascinated by the cartoon law which dictates that all characters’ eyes are back-lit. Not upset, but fascinated.
Well, have you seen a cat’s eyes in the dark?
white orbs of doom.
Have you seen unidentified eye glare in the dark?
But Zach isn’t a cat… UNLESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Marvin looks chibi-like in panel 3
But who it’s checking, Marvin?
And who konws maybe a holy simbol can save you from one or two “situations”
*Who is checking?
Gah confusion :S
Luv the lighting on this 1, definitely looking forward for the next strips.
Heh, Thus the Arc’s title.
No, really, last panel, a literal *facepaw*.
ah, you noticed it too…
At what time this strip come out 2:00 am?
It was released around 2:45am, which was really 3:45am to me, where, at the same time, I had just left the IRC and gone to bed, so yeah, I missed it… E|:(
AH GOD ZOOM OUT ZOOM OUT!
(I wasn’t ready for his close-up)
you could’ve told me sooner..
I was thinking the same thing.
This one is a lot of fun! Nice work with the lighting. Max is like a cheshire cat in panel 6, that is awesome.
I just noticed that Rick recently added the “CREEEEK,” “slap,” and “twitch” onomatopoeia!
REALLY SNEAKY RICK!
Yeah, though I think the CREEEEEEEEK might have already been there… no sure though.
He’s messing with us, and scaring us, like a good ‘ol fashioned, “Wait, was that chair in the corner there before?”
Marvin is a a lion.
I bet someone tries rubbing Zack’s foot.. for luck!
Dynamic shading does add something to this.
Maxy, Maxy, Maxy. I’m liking you more and more this arc.
And Zach lost it…
Where is Zach’s gang of wild animals? Did they finally decide to leave him alone and go back to there normal lives?
They’re probably the surprise that Marvin and Zach have in store, Or so I presume, as Marvin notes that their trick is not especially reliable.
I still think they are all going to run screaming or something. =P
Won’t the girls just come in and scare the guys in the end, like they always do?
wow haha, i hate haunted places x.x i’m sure i would be running about now XD
ROFL I love this! Love your comics soo much, keep it up
Housepets is AWESOME! lol
Candy Corn Awesomefaic FTW!
I’m sorry, but I cant stop thinking peanut and grape are going to get together. So i have a story thought out already.
Setting: Halloween party
Story: Grape and Peanut are talking, when Grape says she going to find Maxwell and leave. But when she finds him he is making out with Sabrina. Grape runs home, and Peanut chases after her. When he finds her she is crying, and he comforts her, then they kiss.
Use this if you want.
…but then where would there be the fun in that? E|;D
A vengeful bunny on a mission with a gang of minions could make a house scarier. They just need some creativity. Good thing Sabrina isn’t a Tarot-level psychich yet.
I suppose ever since Zach became a more solid supporting character, it was inevitable we would see a Trix Rabbit reference. Kudos on going this long without it!
