    No more squeaky squeaks?! :3 Oh Peanut! lol

    • GarrisonSkunk

      Nope, Rick stated Friday that that arc was ending.

      • Argent Stonecutter

        He’s doing a bunch of short arcs.

        • IceKitsune

          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.

          • GarrisonSkunk

            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!’

        • LordWorpeltinger

          Argent Stonecutter : He’s doing a bunch of short arcs.
          yeah right between Peanut’s ears XD

  2. Xane

    Still less painful than Bino’s shock collar

    • i like your hat

      i dunno.. the lightning was jumping between his ears xD

    • GarrisonSkunk

      Indeed….hopefully he’ll be able to get back home using the more comforting standard “you have to wake up now” method.

      • Tommy

        lol i totally agree

    • pb98

      loooooool……i wonder if peanut want’s his look a like followers to use that projector thing

    • Shuma Jindivi

      ……at least he didn’t feel it multiple times.

    • holmebrian

      Alt Text: It saves on the travel cost. Otherwise they’re Astral-nomical

  3. Dontlookmenaked


    • Elwood Blutarsky

      Agreed, this will be cute…and probably quite out there.

    • Gabi


      I also like the alt text on the ‘Comment’ button: “Comment on being conned”.

  4. Zaitsev

    Psycon infinity.

    • Gabe23


    • Argent Stonecutter

      “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.”

  5. Erikuto

    A space between spaces…what?

  6. Draven

    Legality doesn’t apply (or applies less) in matters of personal interpretation such as the phrase “a little.”

  7. IceKitsune

    This should be cool first time seeing them do anything together in an arc by themselves.

  8. Lunyk Stormdragon

    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.

    • cheetahwolf

      tell me, how didnt you know that would happen? or did you?! psychic. by the way, how ms. Sally stromdragon

      • Lunyk Stormdragon

        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.

  9. bene

    What’s with all the mini archs

  10. Wilford B. Wolf

    Oh I see what you did there in panel 3… a little dragon help, eh?

    • Asuterisuku

      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…

  11. GarrisonSkunk

    Oys at the alt text. Nice pun. Somewhere Bennett Cerf is smiling :)

    • GarrisonSkunk

      Oops, sorry. Didn’t mean to leave the phoners in the dark.

      “It saves on the travel costs. Otherwise they’re astral-nomical.

  12. Cristian100n

    My brother once pulled a prank on me and it pretty much went the same way. It was a very horrible experience DX

    • Ryu

      You should prank him back! :P

      • Cristian100n

        thing that sucks is that I suck at pranks

    • GarrisonSkunk

      Why? To what convention did the astral projector send you?

  13. Gabe23

    Interesting how the color on the top of the Astral Projector changes between Earth and “Space Between Spaces”

    • GarrisonSkunk

      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.

      • Ryu

        Rick likes to mess with our minds! XD

    • holmebrian

      button button whos got the button.

      • ghastmaskzombie

        That’s the second time I’ve seen that phrase. Is it a quote from somewhere?

        • GarrisonSkunk

          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.

        • holmebrian

          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

  14. SilentWolfXIII

    Peanut should have read the fine print :D

  15. avatarjk137

    Interesting the way Tarot’s eyes change color in panel 3.

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      They flip to green when her powers are in use or when dragon is acting through her.

  16. GarrisonSkunk

    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.

  17. Gary (from Radio Free Housepets!)

    Psycon Infinity. I like that name. It even sounds cool. :)

    • GarrisonSkunk

      To Psycon Infinity……and beyond!

      I notice Tarot dodged Peanut’s question about getting home in time for supper.

    • GarrisonSkunk

      To Psycon Infinity……and beyond!

      I notice Tarot dodged Peanut’s question about getting home in time for dinner. Wonder if she knows something big’s gonna happen.

      • GarrisonSkunk

        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.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      It saves on hotel costs to only hold it once at the end of the universe.

      • GarrisonSkunk

        $42 per person/spirit/being a night?

      • BillyMT

        But what about the mana cost per usage? Potion for rechargings are still coined you know :x

      • Argent Stonecutter

        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.

  18. CheshireDCat

    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?

  19. Profesor Rod

    Shocking, isn’t it?

    Oh cool! Peanut and Tarot are on a Psychic Convention :3

    • legendario13


      ^those jokes

  20. Ryu

    Peanut might just see Grape sleeping, pokes her with his paw and zaps away! :3

    • GarrisonSkunk

      I was just thinking the same thing. :)

      • DanTwelve3

        He’ll have quite the static charge built up when they get back.

  21. xhunterko

    A bit? Oh I meant to say byte.

    • legendario13

      quite geeky but made me laugh :D

  22. darastrixen

    There’s a dragon-shaped shadow in the lefthand side of the fourth panel; not sure if that’s “the” Dragon or something else.

    • legendario13

      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.

      • GarrisonSkunk

        Figured they were unimortant due to a lack of an ‘innocent con-goers’ or ‘???’ tag.

        • cheetahwolf

          i am betting Sabrina will be there with Fido like with Peanut and Tarot.

          • cheetahwolf

            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?

          • GarrisonSkunk

            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.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            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.

  23. Kaleb

    To the space between spaces… that’s from Indy right?

  24. Tommy

    Ooo i wonder whats gona happen next! :3

    • RJ

      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.

      • GarrisonSkunk

        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!

        • RJ

          yay now i need tickets to PsyCon! anyone not going that bought them?

          …anyone :c…

  25. *White fang*

    Did her eye color change?

    • GarrisonSkunk

      Happens when she uses her powers or when dragon is talking through her. Or when she needs to find the remote.

  26. RockstarRaccoon

    *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!

    • GarrisonSkunk

      Would that be one of Spot (Superdog)’s famous “Pun—ches?”

  27. Salenstormwing

    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.

  28. GameCobra

    Astral Projectors – The second best thing from Teleporter rooms.

  29. Cyan Leopard

    I still stand by my original statement that Tarot is evil.

  30. DanTwelve3

    Peanut is so nonchalant with these spiritual things. Well, aside from the initial shock.

  31. holmebrian

    anyone else notice that the cap or top turned from blue to purple?

  32. Maxmice

    I like the fact that the only thing Peanut is concerned about is how long it will take.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      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)

  33. Natalman

    Wait…why are her eyes green in panel 3? oh right Spirit Dragon….

  34. Kitch

    Under whose laws?

    • RJ

      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.

    • Argent Stonecutter

      The laws of relationships.

      • Argent Stonecutter

        Also, doctors and other medical practitioners, though that doesn’t necessarily apply here.

  35. FerreTrip

    *Groans at the pun in the alt text*

    LOVE the Jacob’s Ladder with Peanut’s ears. And yay, more fun stuff to draw!

  36. Xane

    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”

    • GarrisonSkunk

      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.

    • Aerion Snowpaw

      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 <.<

  37. bhPixelFire


    • Argent Stonecutter

      Jacob’s Ladders.

      • bhPixelFire

        So that’s what that effect is called?

        • bhPixelFire

          I’ve actually seen it before.
          But forgot what it was called.

  38. i like your hat

    Hes all electrocuted but shes unaffected xD

  39. Z24


    More like PsyCho-n

    • Elwood Blutarsky

      Those guys have their con at a creepy motel instead.

  40. GuyFace101

    Well, you see Tarot… Space? … Is relative.
    *proceeds to trip out from sheer epiphany*

  41. Gabe23

    I think Peanut is not going to be late for dinner, you know …. subjective time

  42. Lance

    haha! wow. XD that alt text.. gold. X3

  43. bhPixelFire


  44. Loner

    hmmm the space between space it’s a very interesting topic

  45. Duez

    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

  46. MarvinKyleArbelt

    funny! peanut didnt see that coming.

    • GarrisonSkunk

      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.

  47. D-Rock

    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.

  48. Draven

    I thought the “space between spaces” was the infinity point where four corners touch

  49. ghastmaskzombie

    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?

  50. Argent Stonecutter

    That reminds me, which root was Yggdrasil root beer made from? The one fed from Urda’s Well, Mimir’s Well, or Hvergelmir?

  51. illeatyourself

    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

  52. Raska

    “still standing” is the legal definition?

  53. Eddy

    Why does Tarot change eye color?

    • Dissension

      That’s what happens when she uses her various abilities (or Spirit Dragon speaks through her).

  54. adambluewolf

    well this could get interesting

  55. adambluewolf

    and i wanna know whats goin to happen between peanut and grape

    • Dissension

      Probably nothing, considering Grape doesn’t appear to be in attendance at the convention…

    • GarrisonSkunk

      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.

  56. Gabe23

    I just have this feeling inside me, that tells me that this arc could end in all of this being a “dream”

  57. RJ

    Rick why did you make the eyes green? the black ones were perfect D:
