B. Root is the author of the pretty much awesome Dawn Chapel.
Tiger has been replaced with an alien.
Alt text: Alternately titled Catharsis Comics
I dun get it
Catharsis is Greek for “cleansing” or “purging” of emotions according to Wikipedia
Ah, WIkiped enlightens…..presumably
TO DE GGUUUGGLLLLLLLESS!!!
DE VEEKEDPEEDIA IS ATTACKING!!!! OH NOOOESS!!!
maybe that is how he can see the colors on the tv.
Dogs and other canines CAN see the blue and green spectrums of colour, but not RED.
my boston terrier can see the red laser on my gun because he chases it like a cat. so if he can’t see red what does he see the laser as?
a brownish-grey, probably.
in any case, it’s a brightly colored spot and obviously worth chasing.
“Bump” “Asplode” Love that. XD
Not sure I get that bit. I’ve only seen “asplode” in a context like “your head asplode”. That doesn’t seem near violent enough to be an asplosion.
It’s a literal punchline.
Best Asplode ever.
… i dont get it
I guess tis jsut a small nice scene? :3
I think they drugged him. D:
Sounds very….Tiger-ish ti does
Chocolate is toxic to rabbits, Zach is now dead?
– Sinder, at least a paraphrase of what he said
It’s probably “I can’t believe it’s not chocolate!”, like Joey drinks.
And yes, I still exist. BOO!
Where have you been hiding?
More like, “WHY HAVE YOU KEPT THE MARTIANS UNDER WRAPS?!”
You have to keep them wrapped up or they spoil in our rich oxygen atmosphere.
*taps foot* Where have you been? *gives cookies from a bet long ago*
Oh, man. I didn’t wanna post any comments but it occurs to me now that some of you might be too young to know what a television test pattern is or why it might be funny that Zach is sitting there watching one this whole time. D:
The sky above the port was the color of television, tuned to a dead channel.
this one is cute the drawing style is neat
Probably a cat and a dog don’t feel like eating their veggies.
Taht’d be awesome if you were right
It does make sense cause hot chocolate is bad for dogs and I guess they don’t want to eat the veggies lol
“TIIIIGEEEER!!! WHO ATE ALL THE VEGGIES?!?”
Hooray for stupidfox!
I love the drawing style too, and the last two frames are friggin’ adorable
Yes, his style is nummy.
It’s from the maker of The Dawn Chapel, isn’t it?
Meh, don’t like
The text style is kind of hard to read but I enjoyed it nevertheless!
Alt-Text: “Alternately Titled Catahrsis COmics”
its Catharsis. it means “purging of emotional tensions.” For example, if you have a bad day and feel really mad at the world, playing some GTA or other violent video game and just killing a bunch of people can be cathartic. Or punching a wall when you are ticked off.
This comic is Catharsis in that Tiger and Marvin have previously had trouble getting along with Zach. Their actions in this strip help to overcome the tension between them. Get it?
O.o…… no entiendo…….. ¡¡¡¡¡¿¿¿¿que rayos paso!!!!!????
I do not understand …….. What the hell happened !!!!!???? ¡¡¡¡¡¿¿¿¿
Tis jsut a heartwarming scene I guess
….or a crazy plot xD
no entiendes!!!!!! es una paradoja tempora!!!!! tengo miedo T.T…
do not understand !!!!!! is a temporal paradox !!!!! I have fear T.T
solo bromeo es tan adorable….. :3
just kidding …..: 3 is so adorable
in some way …write things in spanish… Is kinda satisfactory….
porque no solo escribes en ingles y ya….
because I find it funny … but if you do not like …. I’ll leave it …….
except for that last comment…..
I think that’s for the best.
Um… two things: “Rayos” is a way softer word than “hell”, and “aguafiestas” is one word.
Also, according to psychologists Pearl and Lambert, 1962, people who know two languages should only switch to “the other language” if they don’t know how to say something in the language they’re speaking in. (Otherwise, it just makes you look foolish.)
Not foolish, more like a showoff
A confirmed multilinguist I hear
Found conditions for flirting severe
For a girl hardly knows
The response to a beau’s
“Bitte, couchez avec mich, my dear”.
– Isaac Asimov.
Well, if you’re hitting on a girl it’s different.
That last comment was directed toward Argent Stonecutter
YES The Dawn Chapel is awesome. SO WELL DRAWN.
also, the explode is a perfect end.
the last two panels are so simple, but so hilarious for some reason
I love the last two panels. XD *asplode*
Now that’s what friends are for!
WAIT THEY HAVE FIVE FINGERS WHAT THE…
wat part of time paradox dont undestand?
Five fingers!? Blasphemy! >_<
Also, could someone explain the joke to me… -_-'
From the alt-text I’d say the joke is that it’s a big buildup for nothing… and the style is nice.
I think that having thumbs is more alarming than 5 fingers
Ever seen the Charlie Brown Christmas show? Counting fingers will drive you insane.
God I love dawn chapel.
They calming Zachary down to create false feeling of safety.
Okay I like the style as well and Dawn chapel is now saved to my comic section.
For the joke I’m not sure what it’s aboot, but my guesses are:
a) They act differently with Zach than normally
b) (KzT already said this) They’re just gettin rid of their hot chocolate and veggies
c) It’s just a big buildup for somethin we’ll never get answered so we’ll all talk about it in the comment section
In my opinion it’s C, cuz that Root guy is mean. XD
Ah yes! I cannot even bear to entertain the notion that it was in fact…not…a comedy strip! *falls to knees and clenches fists at monitor*
Okay-okay sorry it was just a joke. XD
IF that was meant to tell me “Thank you Mr. Obvious” of course.
Kudos on the onomatopoeias, they added more character to the comic
“Where are we going”
“How do you spell that?”
“Just like it sounds!”
- Iain Banks, Against a Dark Background.
Yay, Zach finally gets some love.
Oh gosh, I thought that was a poor take on Grape for a second.
These comments show that purely-heartwarming scenes are not allowed in webcomics, because people will just complain that they “do not get it” and that there’s no big punchline.
I was thinking just about the same thing, QuetzaDrake.
You’re not THE QuetzaDrake, are you?
Yeah, I am.
I’m an acquaintance of Dawn Chapel’s author and Zach is my favorite character so I felt the need to comment.
the only problem is the “asplode” sound effect. I don’t think that’s allowed into an heartwarming scene.
I may be wrong, though.
It’s just a tiny cute joke, a new addition to the “brofist” sort of celebration deal at getting Zach to successfully calm down, to end a cute comic.
I don’t think that it’s the mere fact that the comic is purely heartwarming, but rather the fact that Tiger’s actually acting reasonably civil towards Zach, when normally he’s… Well… Tiger. He’s so paranoid he usually doesn’t do anything without an ulterior motive, and thus, it’s confusing that he’d do this. Not bad-confusing. Just confusing.
It turns out characters have more than one dimension sometimes, especially if it’s in a non-canon situation concerning just being heartwarming! :O
Well, yes, they’ve got two dimensions. Height and width.
and sometimes depth…both physically and metaphorically.
3d Housepets? Where?
What a subdued asplosion.
Wow, B. Root made your characters look cute. Hahaaaa, I like this comic.
BUT DOGS CANT SEE COLORS
They are more anthropomorphized, and thus have the abilities and height of human children.
Plus they call their owners “Mom” or “Dad”.
They can’t see colors, nor do they stand on their hind feet, nor do they talk, nor do they have the ability to make hot chocolate.
It’s a cartoon
It’s just an altrenet universe. But what would happen if they both combined? That would make a REALLY, REALLY, awesome fan fic…..
Why is everyone staring at me?
allow me to direct you to the Spot comics, “Imaginate, Too”, and…well Peanut in general
B. Root? In my Housepets!? 83
Also, *bump* *asplode* XD
eh, iv seen better
I havent read this in a long time but it still amuses me
they are sooooo cute when miniacal
you see if you stare long enough, something will come out from the TV [...]
How should I invest my money to make more money in a short amount of time?
*Hopper is not amused*
*newpain is not amused*
Housedog’s not amused at the lack of amusing amusement.
Treachery! Cuteness! BOTH!
