this might help people understand the alt text
sabrina is playing as Nicely-Nicely Johnson
i had to look that up before i under stood that
sorry bout posting to my post twice
HAHA… oooh didnt see the mice coming
Yes! More secondary characters! I can’t wait for King or Sasha to get into an Imaginate arc.
I never thought we’d see them again.
Well Grape has now work to do
Politics better not come up…
No one expets the mice coming!
*while riding through town on horseback*
The mice are coming! The mice are coming!
You fiendish rat!
Our main weapons are surprise and the ability to hide under furniture.
Our two main weapons are surprise, the ability to hide under furniture, and the strength of numbers!
Among our weapons…
Argh! I said it!
Argh! I said it again!
Argh! I said it three times!
Monty Python? XD
Look at the tag! They’re rats!
But the cheese is a steriotype
The Rat Pack is capitalized on both words meaning it’s the name of the group.
But can they sing?
it’s easy to mistake them for mice: identical fur color, identical ears, same size. I think those are mice calling themselves ‘the rat pack’. It’s cool, man!
Mice have pointier noses.
Have we ever *seen* rats in this comic?
Plus rats have fedoras, trenchcoats, and dramatic cigarettes that never burn down.
So is the Rat Pack the new name for the Mouse Mob or not? Grape’s confused too!
Perhaps Rick Griffin is calling them the rat pack because of the pun on pack rats even though they aren’t rats. That’s kind of a weird thing to do, though.
Return of the mouse brigade.
How come I’m getting the idea that this scene wasn’t entirely in character for the play…
The Rat Pack is a nice touch.
Ooh the mice return!!!!
But they’re not the same ones!
Oh my Tarot is so adorable in that last panel!
Spontaneously produce medieval weaponry! I think every gal comes equipped with that skill.
Yes. I have suffered that kind of wrath more than once D:
Frying pans are medieval weaponry?
What, no mini paper hats for the mausen?
I think Rick is teasing all the shippers with the Peanut/Tarot wedding.
uh its part of the play I don’t think you can count this as ship teasing. Also they are already dating you can’t “ship tease” something that’s canon.
Looks like somebody hasn’t read the shipping rules thoroughly!
You can always count something as shipping, be it character interactions, common background or quirks, or the fact they’ve never been in the same room together!
Do you know how much medicine they’d need to buy to get enough paper bags in the right size?
Anything is worth seeing all those mice wearing paper hats.
They could fold little paper boats.
Well, this explains last strip…
What, the actors don’t even know who’s in the play? X3
“Peanut, you’re in charge of costumes. Tarot, props. Sabrina, casting”
“We need a crowd for Act 1 Scene 5 now, fall out!”
“Next time we’re going with Zach.”
So much funny, it hurts to read.
Bwahah at Grape breaking character to recall one of the few times the fact that biologically she ought to be chomping smaller critters is brought up. :p
today’s comic is SO full of awesome!
Heh, missed the free republic of mouse/mice brigade
*giggles* … the rat pack XD
Well if someone ate MY leader I would certainly consider being in a play with them…
Hah! The rats are back! Awesome!
No, no! look at the tag! These are rats!
He’s right, though. Last time we saw the “rat pack” they were the “mouse mob”. Guess the term “rat pack” fits the imaginate story better, though. They are mice.
I don’t think they’re the same ones
Rick? We need a decision here!
Well, they weren’t entirely in agreement on their name last time either.
Tarot’s happy wiggly tail is SO ADORABLE! :3
a tail full of fluff wuff!
in panel 8 a definite yes so adorable
Huh. Didn’t think we’d see the mice again.
Also, I’m guessing Tarot is wearing a different bag, there’s no design on this one.
I love how tarot and peanut look in the last two panels just cute
Agreed, Tarot in general is stealing this arc with her cuteness.
All they need now is for King to join their group and the cuteness of the comic would go beyond the possible limit.
Hahaha 10 hours later after posting this i was sitting at the mall alone then all of a sudden i get trampoled by my gf and hugged on* sigh* ironic
This strip is aswome !!! So much things in here, the rats are back ! Sara (Grape) went to Havana with Sky (Max), great comic strip !!!
Why hasn’t ANYONE mentioned the bottom left corner of the 5th panel????
Those are Peanut’s feet from Grape knocking him over in panel 2.
Well, it does say “shove”
That’s why he’s still crouched down so Tarot Adelaide can tackle him!
I’m surprised they all actually know the concept of marriage. I don’t think the word wife or husband has been used once in the last four years
Well they do watch a lot of television and I don’t think it’s really relevant to them anyway as they are pets.
They tend to belong to married couples, so it seems logical that even if they can’t get married, they should know about it from when their “parents” explain about why they can’t.
…just HOW did they convince the mice to play?
Bribed them with cheddar, I assume.
The rules of conquest perhapse? Grape ate their leader, therefor she became their leader and commanded them to be in this play.
Or else she’d eat them too. Grape would make a great dictator like that.
Probably the same way Sabrina “got” Spo to stay with Fido
Tarot made an amazingly good leap there, given she’s got a paper bag over her eyes.
I guess she has no ears on her paper bag because Adelaide’s not in her scantily-clad off-burlesque dancer costume.
And speaking of paper bags, I like Grape’s “Irish cop hat tip” in panel 3.
Yes, she’s not scantily clad, we can see her collar!
The puns in this strip have reached ludicrous levels.
I’m so lost. o.o
Try this it may help:
(Read the synopsis)
Is it me, or do Grape’s eyes look unusually effeminated in panel 3?
…because she’s a girl?
Nah, that’s “puzzled Irish cop” eyes, not “combed out eyelash” eyes.
Marry the man today. Trouble though he may be, much as he likes to play crazy and wild and free! Marry the man today rather than sigh in sorrow,Marry the man today and change his ways tomorrow!
I love how Peanut facepaws in the last panel
wow grape disappeared
Tarot is in the last panel the happiest pomeranian in the world but peanut look’s not really so happy or?^^
panel 7 epic face!! both peanut and tarot!
this article is really a great help especially to a newbie like me. great one.http://www.simbolodamusica.com
yay not spo but all of his cousins!
Evidently Grape neglected to set aside the necessary budget for seven very small paper ags.
Lol I have to use that patients joke someday that’s awesome
i love all the “curse words”
what the cristmas
what in santas name
son-of-a-charming young woman
i am sooo using all those, and the doctor joke in this strip.
Finally! I just caught up with all the issues… in one day. That’s because there hasn’t been a series this altogether awesome-tacular since the Bone series. Waiting for another issue is going to kill me, but hey. At least it’s not a full week.
thank you for your advice !http://www.honely.com
What happened to King?
Nothing – he’s not involved in this arc. :3
