No more squeaky squeaks?! :3 Oh Peanut! lol
Nope, Rick stated Friday that that arc was ending.
He’s doing a bunch of short arcs.
I just wonder if this one is going to be a short arc to. The premise doesn’t seem like it should be, but neither did the last one IMO.
Well, the actual word Rick used was ‘vignette’, and if shows like “Night Gallery” and “Love American Style” have taught me nothing else, they prove that some vignettes are longer than others. Hopefully its not Mon: ‘Arrive at Psycon’ Weds: ‘Here Peanut, I needed you to open this pickle jar’ Fri: ‘Ok Peanut, time to wake up!’
Argent Stonecutter : He’s doing a bunch of short arcs.
yeah right between Peanut’s ears XD
Still less painful than Bino’s shock collar
i dunno.. the lightning was jumping between his ears xD
Indeed….hopefully he’ll be able to get back home using the more comforting standard “you have to wake up now” method.
lol i totally agree
loooooool……i wonder if peanut want’s his look a like followers to use that projector thing
……at least he didn’t feel it multiple times.
Alt Text: It saves on the travel cost. Otherwise they’re Astral-nomical
YES MORE TARROT AND PEANUT!
Agreed, this will be cute…and probably quite out there.
I also like the alt text on the ‘Comment’ button: “Comment on being conned”.
“WELCOME TO PSYCON !!! WHERE YOUR MIND WILL BE READED AND YOUR FUTURE WILL BE SPOILED WITH OR WITHOUT YOUR CONSENT ”
“The astral-nomical cost of the convention fees may be paid by depositing one penny in the bank in your home dimension, and giving the reception desk your future bank account number for intertemporal fund transfer.”
‘Please note: That we are not held responsible for lost souls or bodies stuck inbetweeen demensions or wormholes, and that there are no refunds if trip to desired demension was not satisfactory. For more info: please refer to main desk via mindwave, timespace,or simply dialing 1-800-PSYCO ME.
Wouldn’t that be 867-5309?
A space between spaces…what?
Where no housepet has gone before. Well, except for Tarot. And probably Sabrina.
Legality doesn’t apply (or applies less) in matters of personal interpretation such as the phrase “a little.”
This should be cool first time seeing them do anything together in an arc by themselves.
Indeed…hope it lasts longer than three installments.
Ooh, a psychic convention? Can’t wait to see where this goes. Last time I went to a psychic convention, I ended up in Argentina with a goat named Sally, four and a half heads of lettuce, and my cousin’s right shoe. We had a heck of a time explaining to the police what happened to all the missing candles though.
tell me, how didnt you know that would happen? or did you?! psychic. by the way, how ms. Sally stromdragon
We thought we could avoid our fates. Common mistake.
And Sally actually fell in love with the half head of lettuce, so we didn’t get married.
What’s with all the mini archs
Oh I see what you did there in panel 3… a little dragon help, eh?
I was under the impression the green eyes were related to the use of her powers, rather than the Dragon directly, though the eyes DO turn green whenever the Dragon is present…
Oys at the alt text. Nice pun. Somewhere Bennett Cerf is smiling
Oops, sorry. Didn’t mean to leave the phoners in the dark.
“It saves on the travel costs. Otherwise they’re astral-nomical.
My brother once pulled a prank on me and it pretty much went the same way. It was a very horrible experience DX
You should prank him back!
thing that sucks is that I suck at pranks
Why? To what convention did the astral projector send you?
Interesting how the color on the top of the Astral Projector changes between Earth and “Space Between Spaces”
I thought it looked a bit different in the last panel, but wasn’t sure if it might have been an optical illusion from the background changing, or from me concentrating at a small square at 1 in the morning local time. At least I noticed the standard green eyed Tarot.
Rick likes to mess with our minds! XD
button button whos got the button.
That’s the second time I’ve seen that phrase. Is it a quote from somewhere?
It’s a childrens game in full and the first part “Button, Button” was used in the title of one of the “new” Twlilight Zone episodes about a woman given a button that if pushed would give her a million dollars and kill someone that she doesn’t know. One of the better episodes of the remake in my opinion.
also willy wonka said it in the original movie
either when they were in the elevator or in the tv transmitter room where one of the people got shrunk
Peanut should have read the fine print
Interesting the way Tarot’s eyes change color in panel 3.
They flip to green when her powers are in use or when dragon is acting through her.
Good thing Tarot’s collar pokes out at the back of her neck — otherwise half the posts here would be “Tarot’s naked!” with her arm blocking her tag like that.
Psycon Infinity. I like that name. It even sounds cool.
To Psycon Infinity……and beyond!
I notice Tarot dodged Peanut’s question about getting home in time for supper.
I notice Tarot dodged Peanut’s question about getting home in time for dinner. Wonder if she knows something big’s gonna happen.
Oops sorry about the double message, I guess I hit the submit button when I though I just moused over it. I’m sure the mods can clean that up in post.
It saves on hotel costs to only hold it once at the end of the universe.
$42 per person/spirit/being a night?
But what about the mana cost per usage? Potion for rechargings are still coined you know
There’s no checkout time at the end of the universe, so the concom can just let it run. It’s an old cosmic freshman trick.
Wait does that mean its infinite times it’ll happen? Or that the same con goes on for Infinity and they have new booths every day?
Probably has to do with subjective time again.
It’s like TrantorCon. “Time travelers must pay full membership fees each time they attend.”

Shocking, isn’t it?
Oh cool! Peanut and Tarot are on a Psychic Convention :3
Peanut might just see Grape sleeping, pokes her with his paw and zaps away! :3
I was just thinking the same thing.
He’ll have quite the static charge built up when they get back.
A bit? Oh I meant to say byte.
quite geeky but made me laugh
There’s a dragon-shaped shadow in the lefthand side of the fourth panel; not sure if that’s “the” Dragon or something else.
I thought i was the only one who noticed the figures behind Peanut and tarot on fourth panel… or maybe is too obvious and nobody talks about it.
Figured they were unimortant due to a lack of an ‘innocent con-goers’ or ‘???’ tag.
i am betting Sabrina will be there with Fido like with Peanut and Tarot.
shot, i didnt mean to put that there. sorry
but since im here, do anyone think Pete and the other “magical superbeing” will be there?
Possibly, but I’m feeling the con is more for the people who communicate with beings such as Dragon and Kitsume as opposed to the beings themselves.
So, the actual supernatural beings would be the guests?
I could totally see a U&U panel at the con, with Kitsune, Dragon, and Pete debating free will and metaphorical soda pop, and taking questions from the audience.
To the space between spaces… that’s from Indy right?
Ooo i wonder whats gona happen next! :3
The psychics will kill peanut and he will be dead. Then millions of people will cry for five minutes, forget why, and go watch television.
… At least that’s what they did at PsyCon infinity-1.
Wow, you correctly predicted the next comic! You said that the psychics would kill Peanut, and there he is in part 2 meeting his maker!
yay now i need tickets to PsyCon! anyone not going that bought them?
Did her eye color change?
Happens when she uses her powers or when dragon is talking through her. Or when she needs to find the remote.
*Leaps forward like superdog, his fist colliding epically with Rick Griffin’s face, slamming into it hard for that HORRIBLE pun in the alt-text!*
Take it! You know you deserve it for that!
Would that be one of Spot (Superdog)’s famous “Pun—ches?”
Oh no… not… a CON! And an Astral-based supernatural one! I hope no one gives Peanut paranormal con-crud… also known as normal con-crud.
Astral Projectors – The second best thing from Teleporter rooms.
I still stand by my original statement that Tarot is evil.
Peanut is so nonchalant with these spiritual things. Well, aside from the initial shock.
anyone else notice that the cap or top turned from blue to purple?
Gave, Garrison and Ryu (I dont count cause i noticed it before i read their comments)
I dont know how to make it a hyperlink X(
That’s probably to indicate that it’s on.
I like the fact that the only thing Peanut is concerned about is how long it will take.
He’s mainly interested in another bottle of Yggdrasil Root Beer.
(5% of the price of each bottle goes to the preservation of giant squirrels)
What? No, I forgot to reset it after a one-off last week.
Wait…why are her eyes green in panel 3? oh right Spirit Dragon….
Under whose laws?
Probably the International Avatar’s Association. Their god powers make them immune so the dosages that count as little could be an entire power grid.
The laws of relationships.
Also, doctors and other medical practitioners, though that doesn’t necessarily apply here.
*Groans at the pun in the alt text*
LOVE the Jacob’s Ladder with Peanut’s ears. And yay, more fun stuff to draw!
The more I think about it, the more I feel like Tarot’s more than a little mean, really. Never explains anything and then tries to zap her boyfriend’s ears clean off. Dragon may not be good at interacting with lower beings but Tarot’s just a (psycho..ic) dog.
“Actually sort of a jerk”
I see it as her knowing what Peanut’s going to be facing in the future and her trying to get him used to expecting the unexpected.
If it was me, I’d say it just for the humor. ‘Here, hold this’ ‘BZZZZAP!’
Besides, what else was she gonna say? ‘This is gonna be really painful’? She did want to bring him, after all, and the ‘tingling’ was over before he started complaining, no doubt <.<
OMG HIS EARS ARE ACTING LIKE TESLA COILS!
So that’s what that effect is called?
I’ve actually seen it before.
But forgot what it was called.
Hes all electrocuted but shes unaffected xD
It’s a knack. Also, she remembered to stand on the doormat.
Plus she doesn’t have her thumb on it like he has his.
More like PsyCho-n
Those guys have their con at a creepy motel instead.
Joey’s Creepy Motel?
Well, you see Tarot… Space? … Is relative.
*proceeds to trip out from sheer epiphany*
I think Peanut is not going to be late for dinner, you know …. subjective time
haha! wow. XD that alt text.. gold. X3
hmmm the space between space it’s a very interesting topic
Well, she is right! XD Also, I notice the little bit on top went from Blue to Purple. Does that mean that we have a red space somewhere, since it’s “The Space Between Spaces”? Just random pondering! :3
funny! peanut didnt see that coming.
Peanut don’t know its not bacon.
Sorry, an ad for the dog snacks that use that phrase came on just as I was reading the post, seemed to make sense at the time.
Wow, there really is a convention for everything.
Also, if the only requirement for “a little” is “still standing”, I’d say Tarot should be more careful as to who she brings. Then again, she can most likely already tell.
I thought the “space between spaces” was the infinity point where four corners touch
Why am I the first to notice this? “Everyone gets nauseous on their first astral jump. It’ll pass.” Why is Peanut not nauseous? Has Tarot done this to him before?
That reminds me, which root was Yggdrasil root beer made from? The one fed from Urda’s Well, Mimir’s Well, or Hvergelmir?
The button thing on top of the projector is purple in the last panel. Is it supposed to change color like that or was that a color mistake? And if those are dragons in the background, then I am going to be really happy later. Now on another note, I lol’d at the electricity sparking between Peanut’s ears. XD
“still standing” is the legal definition?
As long as they have grounds to stand on.
Why does Tarot change eye color?
That’s what happens when she uses her various abilities (or Spirit Dragon speaks through her).
well this could get interesting
and i wanna know whats goin to happen between peanut and grape
Probably nothing, considering Grape doesn’t appear to be in attendance at the convention…
Grape will stick her fingers in her ears and say “LA LA LA LA I CAN’T HEAR YOU! LA LA LA LA” when Peanut tries to tell her of all the coolness despite her distaste for the metaphysical stuff.
I just have this feeling inside me, that tells me that this arc could end in all of this being a “dream”
Rick why did you make the eyes green? the black ones were perfect D:
