Good to see this duo back. Dragons fondness for Peanut was touching I always thought, a hint of humanity (in a roundabout way).

Yeah, I have a bit of a fondness for the weepy ol'snake m'self. Pete's seen too many Adam Sadler movies.

I like Dragon/Draig as well, her moment with Max was sweet, and I have a fondness for dragons
Exactly. Her exchange with Max represents one of those unique and unexpected episodes of tenderness and compassion that I came to really enjoy in Housepets! and strengthened my initial devotion to Rick's work. Those and the Marx Brother's mode mayhem of the "Imaginates", the pageants, and the various rivalries and satirical subplots. I have missed them of late.

Maybe when Rick stops doing arcs we will be able to go back to them. If only for a few strips each week.

Maybe Pete switches sides ... that'll open up a whole beetle stew bowl of possibilities.

Oh I honestly doubt that will happen because I can't see him turning against the fox that raised her for however long she did at whatever age Craig is supposed to be. Then you have Kitsune who was his father and I can't see him striking out against his parents for Eudoant who will probably turn on him in the blink of an eye.

I was happy Pete was punished too, but he already redeemed himself (kinda?). I doubt he'd do same thing again. I'm not saying he'd suddenly have change of heart, but think of Piccolo from Dragon Ball. Or Vegeta. They still were "grumpy" even when they teamed up with "good guys". Pete would remain himself, but would change his behavior. At least I think and hope so. I want to see him as a Pete with King. Also did Craig ever met King? I don't remember. I think he met his kids, but not him.

When? He's been insufferable throughout. Just now with added cute.

Oh, but let's hold out yet for redemption ... :)

Also, something funny about the reference in the title. Apparently the movie had its anniversary a few days right after this posted. I wonder if that was on purpose.

I can see Rick being a big fan of the movie and thus he would see when the anniversary came around on a day that he updated that he referenced it. Just a fun Easter egg that he would do which would be fun for people who figured it out.

He didn't fully redeemed himself, but I kinda think of Craig as more self-reflected character. Also current strip shows that he still is pretty much himself, but he is more... I dunno. I got a feeling that becoming a fox made him a little less jerk. In the past, he was 100% selfish. Right now, he is helping others. Of course I know he was still doing this to regain his demigod form, but... he could have really die here. Also his feelings towards Kix. In the past "a mere mortal" wouldn't matter to him.

To be fair though, we don't know if the kind of death everybody has experienced from being zapped is a permanent death. Odds are they will just get sent back to Heaven and be revived there.

Rick's established a pretty vigorous and creative vision of the afterlife - "A lot more crowded then I'da thought" (Fox, I think).

It always was gonna be very crowded since there are a lot of good and innocent people in the world. They naturally do go to Heaven.

Now I'm starting to wonder where that silly transforming coin has gotten off to ... and if maybe Thomas (the Camel, not the tank-engine) Milton will make a guest appearance.

Sigh ... too long atwix installments.

I know that Eudoant broke the coin into thirds and gave one to Nega-Breel and the other to Steward so those pieces might be with them. I assume Eudoant has the last piece.

Maybe it'll be Eudoant's turn to "go to pieces."

That would be amusing but I don't think he is gonna be destroyed. I have a feeling he will be just banished back to the Underworld.
