[2020/10/28 - Angles Of Demons]
Title Text: doom is a fun word. doooooom

To be fair, Keene, the denizens of higher heaven are things you don't want to mess around with. I've heard one of them is a flaming sword.
Faith doesn't change circumstances. Faith changes me.

Looks like our friendly badger is getting started... with a subway? Guess that will be more clear later.

I wonder how much Keene told his family about Pandemonium. Seems like he may have been a bit vauge.

What I like about this one is that you can read the panels in the order 1,2,3 or 1,3,2 and it still works!

Pete was no demon... But I feel like he would really really REALLY enjoy it

I can't wait to see what this little demon's plan actually is it honestly interests me more than Stuarts right now.

Pete may not have been a demon
but he sure wasn’t of heaven.
On a scale of one to evil
Pete probably came up to seven.
Watch out who you’re talking around
and worse, watch what you’re wishing for;
you never know who’s listening;
it might be one that you’ll abhor.
And then there’s the forgotten things,
like little Demons you released;
Pete may have been a right old pain
but he didn’t want the world ceased...

Steward and the Demon have entered the mansion. Desperate times are ahead and that demands desperate measures to save humanity...

Hence we put our faith in Blast Hardcheese, ERR, I mean we put our faith in Todd Kravitz.

I'd like to think that although Steward is fine with ruining multiple Human lives (Marion, Lois, anyone else he touched with the coin) in order to ruin Keene, he'd draw the line at dooming the entire world.

After all, if everyone's equally doomed, how is he supposed to gloat?

True. Makes you wonder if, once he learns the truth of Dino Demon's plan, he'll actually go out of his way to prevent doom (along with the summoning of the Doomslayer), and also reverse the coin's curse.

So when he says "doom the planet" what does he mean here? Unleash utter heck on Earth with an army of demons flooding to the surface? Extinguish humanity by turning everyone into animals and laughing at the resulting chaos? Just straight up blow up the planet? I need to know if I have to the call the Ghostbusters, a vet, or those planet rebuilding mice from "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy."

I find some humor in the fact that all of this is really Thomas Milton's fault when you think about that. Such a minor character and yet Mr. Camel just had to start messing around with cursed treasures and practical jokes at the expense of bank employees he corrupted.

There are folks who are apocalyptical in their self-destructive impulses - for example, at the end, Hitler saw in his his own fall the destruction of all civilization. I don't think Steward's fury is that extreme but then he hasn't yet had that option presented to him. And, again, we don't know exactly what the Dino-Demon's intentions entail.

But I think we're gonna find out ........ :cry:

Once Steward eventually figures out that the Demon is gonna try to bring about the end of the world, he should be happy...then horrified. Happy because it means that the ECP will be destroyed and the Milton's will be bankrupted. Then horrified because if the world is destroyed, he will be dead. :ugeek:

It's better to don't deal with the celestial beings, Keene, of any kind, but I know you were forced to... :roll: Pete wasn't a demon, but he was behaving almost like one. :P Yeah, that demon succeeded to get on Earth just because of a needed hat, and Keene didn't realize to have sealed a contract with it. :? Looks like Steward and the demon got at the ECP's place, or the mansion... What is he doing with those switches?

So now the eavesdropping Marion knows that demons exist, if he didn't already. He has good intuition, a good head on his shoulders, and has definitely played more than his fair share of videogames. He's definitely not the kind of squirrel that'd enter into a pact with anything demon-looking, especially if they're accompanied by a badger that he recognizes. My guess is that Marion's eavesdropping is going to walk back into the room, and that leads him into an argument with Keene about the pacts that the ferret entered into, blaming him and his family for getting them all into this mess.

At first I was confused as to whether or not that really was the mansion, but thinking about it, Steward likely knows of secret entrances to the Milton Estate thanks to his time working there. It could very well be some place that the ferrets or their dad had built out for emergencies.

My thoughts on where this might go next in the short term: Keene and Marion continue to argue, both of them bringing up good points, with Lana taking Marion's side on some stuff. Steward and DD try to sneak past the doorway that we see Marion peeking through in this page. They get caught, and this leads to a hectic (and very entertaining) chase through the mansion.
With the right community, getting into a webcomic at the beginning of a brand new arc can feel just as enjoyable and rewarding as being there from the beginning.

Been a while since Housepets has had a good chase scene - every good horror movie usually has a couple.

Just to nit-pick, you're really talking about slasher type Horror films, aren't you?

Can't figure out what that place is, meself... but do subways make a habit of having normal light switches in normal places on the wall that anyone could reach?
Heck, for all I know they might. I'm very unfamiliar with any kind of subway that doesn't make sandwiches.

Oh, I'm sure there are normzl switches all over the place for standard office stuff like lights. They might not be normal switches in typical publically accesable areas, but this could be a back office or storage room.

Unless he is switching the lights off instead of on but it looks more to me that he is switching them on. Of course that is just my take on the whole thing and I could be wrong.

Pete wasn't a demon, he was a god,
Lana, don't you find that really odd?
The planet's clearly doomed, you see...
As the Demon closes in, whee...!

Marion's peeking in to spot
Whether Earth's doomed a little or a lot,
And the plan keeps spinning deeper,
Keene's work gets still cheaper.
You're a wonderful person! You can do this! Yes, you, person reading this!

Surprisingly enough my parents never even bothered with telling us that we can't play with the lights. Which is why I found it odd as a kid that other kids said their parents told them not to do it.
