Yush, a new arc!!! :3
Alt for the phoners: “That’s why they subcontracted the serious stuff” ;D
Pete is the best! <3 Pete.
Oh, and I guess Cerberus is there, too.
Take note: Pete’s paws are almost identical to peanuts. I find this interesting.
And yes, Pete is a fantastic character. Money says he breaks out of heaven; he is playing a game with the world. Though could this trial be over this game?
The trial is secondary to Pete breaking into Heaven.
Huh, Cerberus appears quite feminine in this here panels to me…
It’s not just me is it?
Considering that Cerberus is a girl in the Housepets universe, looking feminine is rather not surprising… (not that it stopped her from handing Pete his leonine behind on a plate last time, of course).
True, but I’m with Tal on the added view that she’s MUCH more feminine then she was in the earlier strips and I’d say it looks appropriate.
Wonder when’s this goin to become a so repeated question that it’ll be just as bad as saying someone looks buff. XD
Hard to be quite so feminine when you’re fighting.
A lot of people couldn’t tell before so that’s probably why Rick emphasized it.
Pete sure is looking buff today, even mores… *SMACK* okay I’ll stop…
no, that’s Cerberus who’s looking buff today, even moreso…*brick’d*
Cerb is a girl in the Housepets world. Not a boy.
Pete? Best? B-)
YAY plots back!
BUT WHAT ABOUT PRIDELANDS!
A secret clip was shown after the credits!
whats with non of these arcs coming to a climax?
The last one did, Spot and the heroes realized they were wrong.
Yes but spot continues… So no it hasn’t endwd
To be continued in Bat-Bat #1… million!
Yay! Pete goes on Trial! I hope there is a lot of explanations for things in this arc.
we’re talking about heavenly legalities… *gets aspirin*
“The Trial in Heaven” is your Stairway to Heaven.
great you got that song stuck in my head
You’re welcome! xD
Idk what song that is
We need a reason piper over here.
We all have one, but we barely listen to it
Hah. Drama Queen.
He sure is dedicated I’ll give him that.
Get your heads out of the gutter people.
Yeah look how committed he is to that role!
Heven has no style? Pete your so full of it…
“Listen,” said Crowley desperately, “how many musicians do you think your side have got, eh? First grade, I mean.”
Aziraphale looked taken aback.
“Well, I should think -” he began.
“Two,” said Crowley. “Elgar and Liszt. That’s all. We’ve got the rest. Beethoven, Brahms, all the Bachs, Mozart, the lot. Can you imagine eternity with Elgar?”
Aziraphale shut his eyes. “All too easily,” he groaned.
– “Good Omens”, Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman.
♫♪ I wanna go to heaven for the weather, hell for the company! ♪♫
I wanna go to heaven for the weather, hell seems much fun to me! ♪
I didn’t get a word you just said…
Ever heard of “the heavenly choirs”? Ever wondered why it’s not “the heavenly soloists” or “the heavenly songwriters”? Terry Pratchet and Neil Gaiman offer a simple explanation: http://youtu.be/OlwRNCnsbUg
Crawley and Aziraphale are a devil and an angel, respectively, who have been doing field service in London for so long they’ve gone native. Crawley’s pointing out that most of the good composers aren’t “up there”.
Well you all knew we would come back to this. I guess it’s time for chaos to ensue.
Pete: “Well come on… Who has a dungeon but no chains? It’s just no fun.”
exactly, i mean its all about the little details!
Maybe that’s just what he’s used to?
he has the power to do anything, what would real chains do? i mean really.
wait isn’t cerberus protecting hades not heaven?
She got promoted to heaven.
Hey I guess even Hades can’t afford decent help anymore. Seems like the bad economy’s affecting everyone, even hell. And not since this strip she hasn’t.
Of course, by a promotion, he might have meant from Hades to Heaven.
Wouldn’t that mean it’s a universal crisis instead of a global crisis?
Hades isn’t the popular destination any more, so they had to cut back on staff.
It won’t be a trial if not one objection is given while the person is pointing their finger in the air.
You know after reading into the future of that arch she rly does have an interesting way of giving news
u know, King is going to be at that trial testify because he has his soul that pete tried to steel.
bet King going to be in the shower and be “poof!!!” into the court room.
But wait, this is heaven. Benefit of the doubt, presuming good faith, and peace towards thy neighbor. Maybe they can have trials without objections
Maybe they’ve got YHYW presiding on this one – Pete would be presumed guilty, but the judge is willing to be persuaded…And a calamity cannon to one city block, centered on him, if he annoys the honorable justice…
Woot!! We’re back on these people!
The Dog head on the left looks curious, the dog head in the middle looks serious, and the dog head on the right looks…Like she’s looking at something shiny xD
She has three heads but she’s still a dog
Good point. However, what happens when she argues with herself?
Probably very noisy!
Like the “argument” scene in “Fantastic Mister Fox”.
Makes you wonder if Pete ever won an argument with her…
I have to admit, it’s what I love best about today’s comic
Three heads are better than one… except when they’re not!
plus look at the middle head that one has piercings
You can express a lot with three heads. Cerberus should be fun to watch.
if only she was a cat now that would be better ^^
especially if you throw a bouncing ball at her
Pete knows a thing or two about style, apparently.
Yeah pete^ _^
I smell Peat.
I also smell Pete/King hijinks coming up!
“So we’ll be switching to an insanity plea? …No, wait, sorry.”
Glad to see a new cosmic arc!
He’s right you know… pink walls? This is the slammer, not a nursery. I think. This is madness…
It’s like prison in Oz where they nice you to death.
Is it possible Pete could finally answer for all his crimes…actually beyond that heavenly smash-and-grab he hasn’t really done much other than troll Grape and King has he?
THATSA UNPOSSIBLE! Babylon Gardens without Pete is like Neverland without Captain James Hook.
does this mean the dragon win the U&U game
you know, if he’s in jail
I’ve seen that before. He’s wrong about Pan Am, by the way… it went out of business the same year the movie came out.
I just like the “A world without Hook is like a world without beanbag chairs” analogy
pete is an arrogant son of an eagle, he loves to bend rules… But he couldn’t have acted like he did without knowing of the consequences. He’s sure to have a surprise explanation that will give him the ‘out of prison’ card.
Well he thought he wasn’t going to get caught. He didn’t know Cerberus was guarding the vault. I’m hoping Pete’s uppance will shortly come.
I do wonder what Heaven thinks of the Cosmic Jerks messing around with reality so much.
It’s almost like he’s doing it just for the laughs. Then again, he is a bit of a jerk.
There’s a 90% chance this arc is not going to end well. (Hoping to see that King is somewhere shown in the arc)
There is a 100% chance this arc is SO going to end up in a funny, totally unpredicatble way
I highly doubt anything bad is going to happen in this arc. At most its going to be a ton of explanations on Heaven (and the supernatural in general), The U&U Game, and The Nerds. The worst I for see happening is Pete getting to pick an Avatar, or him being forced to help King/Be his slave as punishment making King his defacto Avatar except in reverse. (Pete has to do what King says instead of Pete making King do what he wants)
Rick did mention that this arc was going to have a lot of text.
Yep which is why I’m guessing its going to be a lot of explaining about the Nerds and the Game. Because at this point we really need some explaining of whats going on with that stuff, our educated guesses about it can only go so far.
“For my first witness, I’d like to call Joel Zechariah Robinson.”
“Sorry, he’s too busy being a dog.”
“The bailiff will call the witness to heel.”
Baliff: Sorry your honor, but he’s under another jurisdiction.
Judge: You mean…?
B:Yes, he’s already been collared.
HEAVEN GOT STRAIGHT UP SERVED!
Also, very impressed you went into one arc straight from another.
I think the Spot arc counts as a really long one-off (a one-off arc, as opposed to an arc of one-offs, if you will
So he has two parts…. must be a expensive to find celestial shampoo for both fur and feathers.
It’s best to wash birds with plain water.
Good to know.
Shedding AND molting? Oh my!
No wonder Pete tends to be such a jerk…
Will this somehow effect King’s future? o.o
I fear this arc’s worst-case scenario ending…
He beats the wrap and is let loose to bring chaos throughout the land?
I like this comic =D
And its getting good! :XD
Its always been good XD
Pete just cant leave things they way they are, can he?
where would be the fun, mon?
i dunno, but if i had the option to not be chained up, id take it
so… Cerberus is wearing a not amused face or is that her neutral expretion
Here’s something I just realized. Cerberus was Hades pet. Why would she be in heaven?
she got promoted
One thing few people realize is that Hades was not bad, per se, in Greek Mythology. He was simply a guy with a job. The Walt Disney Company cast him as a bad guy because, and I quote, “he was a convenience villain.”
Monsters were also not bad per se, they were merely the representation of an obstacle.
True. I didn’t consider that. Thank you for the lesson! ^w^
something else about hades as a place it was actually the good or neutral afterlife the bad afterlife is tartarus
Hades had become a super-cool baddie in Saint Seiya too!
daww, they make such a cute couple!
I’ll bet she’ll reconsider her position with him once he reveals the truth at the trial
The truth being “I really am a jerk after all?”
I noticed that Cerberus’s heads here looks like King’s girlfriend, only with spots over the eyes.
Ok, sort of looks like.
There are more differences that I didn’t see the first time.
What’s wrong with Cerberus’s right arm? It looks weird, as if there’s a bizarre stump.
If you had three heads, your shoulder would look wierd too
Scratch that, it’s her hand. She’s leaning against the doorframe.
There was sort of a shape like this:
It was coming off her shoulder.
Argh, my spacing got nixed.
Looks like Rick redrew it?
Yeah, looks like it now.
Mmm, Cebby: very nice…. to see you again~
Why do I get the feeling Pete hangs out with Discord on the weekend? Also, yay, Cerbby!
Wait, so there are LAWYERS in heaven?!
Hey, one of my sisters is a lawyer! Jerk…
I guess if not all dogs go to heaven, then not all lawyers go to hell either.
They’re sharks. No, I mean the Lawyers in Heaven are literally Sharks. There’s this real nice Mako Shark, but he charges an arm and a leg… That’s also probably literal.
And there are also cheeseburgers in paradise.
Hmm, I don’t think I’d find it very Heavenly if people were still duking it out in legal battles all the time. On the other hand you do kind of need law and order to prevent chaos…
According to the bible, Law and Order come from heaven. Remember the 10 commandments?
Pete walks into a room, to await trial. There is a human standing there. And Pete utters the immortal words:
“You’re not my lawyer.”
Its heaven anything can happen!
His face in the fourth panel is made of so much win.
My King sense is tingling.
And royally at that!
Pete will be found GUILTY I knows it
This is gonna be epic!
Maybe he’ll be turned into a dog, a human, or some other mortal form with no ready way to shift back!
He’ll be turned into a king’s flea
Now I’m thinking “Inuyasha”
How was the “drag you to take you home” thing?
He’s so into the character.
And wing restrictions? ……Gees Rick.
Oh wrong place to comment. Wasn’t planed to be a reply. But Pete turn into a dog (or more likely cat) may actually be a valid prediction!
It may be a good idea to threaten him with that
oh it’s pete!
Well, it ain’t surely Joe!
“Girl, have you seen the hell’s dungeons?!”
“For punishment, you’re going to have to get Joel’s soul back, and you’ll have to convince King to give it to you. No hanky-panky, we’re watching you…”
(and a little hovering robot angel appears and zips over to Pete’s shoulder)
And that’s the birth of Navi.
The trial of the cosmos! ;-
…Cerberus looks like Bailey. Or mebbe Bailey looks like Cerberus.
That may have been what I was saying earlier. But i don’t think Bailey has the spots or the lighter coloured muzzle.
Oh, haha, I didn’t see you’d already said something. I did a ctrl+f for ‘bailey’ and nothing showed up. But you know, you can go to the ‘A Respite In The Country’ arc to see Bailey, and you could compare them.
It prolly doesn’t mean anything though, them looking alike, but it’s certainly an interesting feature. -shrug-
he knows hes goin to get away…
When this is over, King will turn into a fox and Fox will turn into a cat named Tom.
Only if we rename the rabbit “Ruby.”
It did not cross my mind that Cerberus might be female and had dated Pete at the same time. I neglected to take into account dogs don’t have big breasts in that cosmology. I may be straight, but being narrow minded is too much work. I try to save my mental energy for things I should be doing so next time I will try to remember to check the hips.
Cerberus could sing close harmony with three heads. Having a range that covers a growl to a high picked whine would be quite versatile, too.
Lol I love this. It sounds just like something a friend of mine would do. XD
Trust me, she KNOWS what the prisons in hell are like, and it’s not a pretty sight. :O
i think this is the first time pete was clearly standing on two legs, kindof awkword when used to seeing him quadaped.
He conjured chains and brackets instead of a fluffy pillow? Seriously?
That’s PETE for ya!
He’s a drama queen. That’s probably one of the reasons Cerberus dumped him.
OMG! ITS HIM O_O
OMG! ITS HIM O_O
OMG! ITS HIM O_O
OMG! ITS HIM O_O
OMG! ITS HIM O_O
OMG! ITS HIM O_O
OMG! ITS HIM O_O
… (He chained HIMSELF up!?! O.O )
how do i comment on someone elses comment
You need to click the word “Reply” for whichever comment you want to reply to.
pete will find a way to get out of this one
You are about to enter the court room of Judge Tengu. The people are real. The cases are real. The rulings are final. This… Is Heaven’s Court.
“Pete is innocent because he is a bird who gets picked on by cats all the time.”
“<__> *puppy eyes* Yes ;_;”
Cerberus: … *facepalms both her left and right face while the middle one drops her jaw*
hey there, i liked you blog, it is kinda good. keep up the work.http://www.divulgaemail.com
