      Happy Birthday VAL!!! Have an awesome, fun and a safe birthday party!!! :-)

    • Buckdida

      Darn it. You’re not on the forums, so I suppose I’ll have to do this here. :P

      Happy Birthday to one of our most frequent commenters.

    • Silver Dragon

      Happy Birthday and congratulations on the “Happy Birthday Posts” chains.

  8. HonorèDerazey

    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.

    • dalonewolf25

      well, that’s whut happened to me, and I went to sleep 5 minutes before the comic came out…E|:(

  9. Valerio

    Aw, Zach is extra cute today! *hugs Zach*
    Also, Max in panel 6 is awesome!

    • Ada

      Indeed, he’s quite the devilish rogue. X3

  10. gagi

    ooo reverse psychology … isn’t it nice :)

    • BeatReaktor

      Your gravatar is sweet! Yours I’m guessing?

  11. Tara

    If what’s ready? I wonder what they are up to… :p

    • Tara

      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.

      Can’t wait! :D

      • Shadowolf 2

        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.

  12. Clairvoyant Legacy

    The house must be haunted!

    The staircase disappears in the last panel!

    • GameCobra

      nah, it’s there. Zach took his light off of it.

      Look carefully in the past panel and you’ll see it.

      • Clairvoyant Legacy

        All I’m seeing in the last panel is black.

        • GameCobra

          Best thing i can suggest is adjusting the monitor. You’ll see it =)

        • BeatReaktor

          Do you build your own PC’s

          • BeatReaktor

            Check this out…

            I’m building it for a friend right noaw nothing too fancy.

          • BeatReaktor
          • dalonewolf25

            It’s like a PC video game virtual reality heaven!


          • BeatReaktor

            Lol, Ya it’s mine. It’s great for my music production (filthy dubstep) and yes dalonewolf of course lots of games!! :D

          • Buckdida

            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!

          • BeatReaktor

            well… Rick used a computer to help make his comic and then post it. So technically it is related.. just saying :P

          • Clairvoyant Legacy

            But… By that logic, since we’re all humans, we can discuss anthropology here.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Sorry, the anthropic principle doesn’t stand a chance against the anthropomorphic principle in a universe created specifically for housepets.

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            ai dunno wut u gaiz are talkin ’bout… but ai vote for argnet

  13. Inu225

    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

    • Secrettraveler

      Also Zach in panel 1&4.

    • The Wolf Kin

      When you said to use the flashlights to stun enemies, I thought ‘Luigi’s Mansion’, not ‘Alan Wake’.

      • Inu225

        I haven’t played “Luigi’s Mansion”. Is it any good?

        • dalonewolf25

          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…

        • Inu225

          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?

          • dalonewolf25

            eheh…no, that’d be awesome though. Sadly, I’ve never played the FF Series…

  14. Argent Stonecutter


  15. Radio Viewer

    Hahaha… Oh Zach.

  16. NexusWulf


  17. Falcon01

    Cool! Zach seems to have gotten at least SOME self confidence, altho some intelligence may have suited him better just now :P

    • dalonewolf25

      Some… and a little bit of cunning and prowess…

  18. Dissension

    Maxwell: Life Troll.


    • BeatReaktor

      I am life troll

  19. dalonewolf25

    Silly rabbit! Trix are for kids!

  20. heraledro

    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.

  21. Argent Stonecutter

    It’s like Abbot and Costello. Now Zach’s got Bud Abbot’s voice in my head.

  22. RennisTora

    would the fact that cats (and I think rabbits) have low-light vision effect this?

    • dalonewolf25

      *affect, and most likely not, since they’re bound to have poltergeists and spirits and whatnot…

      …and yes, poltergeist is a funny word.

      • Argent Stonecutter

        affect vs effect just ticks me off. Especially since they swap places when you verb them.

  23. Rocket Knight boy

    where did zach leave all his Ghost gear?

    • Bicycle Repairman

      Turns out he needed a permit for a particle accelerator in this state, whichever state this is.

  24. gaboris

    Oh yeah this is an interesting start. Can’t wait to see all the traps and scares. :D
    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.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Yeh, he’s absolutely right. Splitting up is like beaming down to an alien planet in a red shirt.

  25. Chip Uni

    You know…

    Max = Fred
    Sabrina = Daphne
    Marvin = Velma
    Zach = Shaggy

    All I want to know is.. where’s Scooby?

    • Val Kilmer Batman

      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).


      • WingedWolfGirl

        Do u mean u can hear the characters talking with the Mystery Inc. voices
        Or r u talkin’ hearing dead people?

        • Val Kilmer Batman

          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.


  26. lavadog420

    i think zack needs a brack. Peanut= Scooby

  27. xhunterko

    Sigh, poor zack. Rule number 1: Don’t get distracted.

    • BeatReaktor

      I thought rule number 1 was never talk about… oooh you mean for being in haunted houses lol :D

      • xhunterko

        Ehem, I do believe you just lost. If I’m not mistaken.

        • Val Kilmer Batman


          (I lost the game)

        • BeatReaktor

          I lost by realizing I was winning

    • Argent Stonecutter

      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.

      • Silent Kitsune

        Why is there no rule #4? :/

        • dalonewolf25

          You got distracted by no rule #4, therefore, you fail rule #5

          • Val Kilmer Batman

            “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.”

        • Argent Stonecutter

          Union rules.

    • Shadowolf 2

      I thought rule 1 was cardio.

  28. BeatReaktor

    Max’s face in panel 3 is priceless! :)

    • Argent Stonecutter

      Do you mean panel 6? I don’t even see Max in panel 3.

      • Argent Stonecutter

        Well, he’s awesome in panel 6.

        • sonic id furreh!!!

          mabeh he’s talkin ’bout Zack’s face
          u know haow it’s all laike >:O

          • BeatReaktor

            No Argent Stonecutter is right I meant panel 6.. It was my bad

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Doesn’t matter whose bad it is, it’s an epic face. Don’t get distracted. :)

  29. Profesor Rod

    Comic title! I lol’d XD

  30. Kamon

    If you think about Zach was probably right

  31. Nia

    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?

  32. Valerio

    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!

    • Rocket Knight boy

      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

      • lightwolf21

        That would be…awesome, and the ideal scenario for maximum happy. :D
        After all, we haven’t seen Peanut this arc yet.

      • xhunterko

        Nope, Bino if anybody.

      • xhunterko

        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.

      • dalonewolf25

        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…

        • Loki Impisi

          Muhahahahaha! I like your ideas. >:)

      • Argent Stonecutter

        I vote for King!

        • Alex M.


        • Val Kilmer Batman

          “Who died and made you king?”

          “Um… I’m Zach, not King.”

      • Final Silence

        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.

  33. lightwolf21

    This arc is another great chance for Rick to work on his lighting effects…and he’s pulling out all the stops. :D
    Zach walked right into that one. lol.

  34. Raxki Yamato

    Max and his reverse talk :3

  35. FerreTrip

    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 ^_^

  36. captainpea

    I’ve always been fascinated by the cartoon law which dictates that all characters’ eyes are back-lit. Not upset, but fascinated.

    • dalonewolf25

      Well, have you seen a cat’s eyes in the dark?

      • WingedWolfGirl

        white orbs of doom.

      • Alex M.

        Have you seen unidentified eye glare in the dark?

      • captainpea

        But Zach isn’t a cat… UNLESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  37. dalonewolf25

    Holy Symbols?

    Marvin looks chibi-like in panel 3

    • Alex M.

      But who it’s checking, Marvin?
      And who konws maybe a holy simbol can save you from one or two “situations”

  38. WingedWolfGirl

    Luv the lighting on this 1, definitely looking forward for the next strips.

    *Reads altext.
    Heh, Thus the Arc’s title. :D

  39. Argent Stonecutter

    No, really, last panel, a literal *facepaw*. :D

  40. Alex M.

    At what time this strip come out 2:00 am?

    • dalonewolf25

      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|:(

      • Val Kilmer Batman


        (I wasn’t ready for his close-up)

  41. Fuzzypaws

    This one is a lot of fun! Nice work with the lighting. Max is like a cheshire cat in panel 6, that is awesome. :D

  42. dalonewolf25

    I just noticed that Rick recently added the “CREEEEK,” “slap,” and “twitch” onomatopoeia!


    • Val Kilmer Batman

      Yeah, though I think the CREEEEEEEEK might have already been there… no sure though.

      • Buckdida

        He’s messing with us, and scaring us, like a good ‘ol fashioned, “Wait, was that chair in the corner there before?”

  43. Alex M.

    Panel 5
    Marvin is a a lion.

  44. J.J.

    I bet someone tries rubbing Zack’s foot.. for luck!

  45. Fenrari

    Dynamic shading does add something to this.

  46. Ada

    Maxy, Maxy, Maxy. I’m liking you more and more this arc.

  47. Hoheh

    And Zach lost it…

  48. Final Silence

    Where is Zach’s gang of wild animals? Did they finally decide to leave him alone and go back to there normal lives?

    • heraledro

      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.

  49. Lance

    I still think they are all going to run screaming or something. =P

  50. anthroguy101

    Won’t the girls just come in and scare the guys in the end, like they always do?

  51. Kadziet

    wow haha, i hate haunted places x.x i’m sure i would be running about now XD

  52. RennisTora

    Poor Zack…

  53. Jacob

    ROFL I love this! Love your comics soo much, keep it up :D

  54. BeatReaktor
  55. HI

    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.

  56. Hoheh

    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.

  57. Solario the Visored

    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!
