“Hold still while I put up my hands in menacing fashion!”
Good morning™, everyone!
Day 3: still no talking heads.
Those manufactured fangs are shining bright!
~ An experience she may not live to recount. If she becomes bereft of life what will be shown ? …Most curious.
I got an email from Teresa Burritt a bit ago. She posted a letter from someone named Shena informing her that Frog Applause will be ending October 10th. I can post it after turnover if anyone is interested.
Good morning™, escaping murder victims !
They can avoid the unpleasantness of depicting a killing by having the lady get away, just barely.
Ray warned us yesterday that, of late, these stories start out strong, but often fizzle. He or someone else also noted that these villains are making a presence not unlike so-called “super villains” from comic books. One could say the same about the 1960s Batman TV show.
At the end, that is what this strip often feels like. 1960s Batman.
Yesterday I thought she might be Tess, but this woman’s younger.
This guy’s definitely a step up from villains of late. Won’t catch him stealing a belt buckle.
Wow. Three strips in the last days without dialogues. Wow!
Wait a sec – a VAMPIRE? SERIOUSLY????
Yeesh….hope this turns out to be either a bad dream on the blonde’s part or some movie that’s being shot in Tracy’s town.
Dudes a modern day vamp…or,he gets into giving blondes deep sucker bites.
This could be interesting, but I hope it doesn’t get too “super-villain-y”. I’m not judging this story after only three strips, obviously, but I do prefer the more traditional Gouldian-type of villain to showier comic book villains like Mr. Roboto or (possibly) Count Floyd here.
What, no one speaks in this comic strip anymore?
And isn’t that the Mad Scientist guy from the other day?
just the opposite of taking a bite out of crime
This might wind up being a Scooby-Doo, where the villain seems supernatural, but isn’t.
is it me, or is time really showing down?
Strong, silent set up. The tone is deadly serious, which is welcome. The Cloaked Chomper has an awful over-bite. Recalls the Jo Nesbo thriller, The Thirst, in which detective Harry Hole goes after a murderer who uses metal teeth to kill and maim. Blood lust seems to be our attacker’s only motive. I don’t think her collar will save her.
I guess this new storyline will run through Halloween? :)
Oh No! It’s Halitosis Man!
is it just ME or do her hands look really REALLLLLY awkward in panel one? not to mention her seemingly projectile fingernails lol
With short stories and no violence allowed, they can’t really develop a story anymore, so we’re served instant villains like Dr. Teeth here.
PARKING LOT ATTENDANT: Back off Jack. I know Kung Fu!
FUNNY BOY: I don’t care who you know. I know lumberjacks with more style sense than you!
PLA: HELP! IT’S THE SHARP-TOOTHED INSULT COMIC!
FUNNY BOY: I see from your hair that you bought into that “bleach cures Covid” idea. SAAAA-NAPPP! PLA: You’re so mean!!!
Has Morbius escaped from Spider Man comics.? Stay tuned as we go all Marvel or DC
Ol’ Dickie boy’s current plot finally looks fairly good!
And with a HISS, she’s hissssstory. :D
They are homemade teeth—-go back two days into this guy’s workshop to see them—-and his—-mouth
And when he leaves his victims, he sings “Fangs for the memories…”
“Ow! I bit my tongue again!”
Is it perhaps Janos Rukh?
Still no dialogue after three days into the new arc, but we can now see that the Mad Scientist (who initially looked so much like the film actor Colin Clive in his Frankenstein rôle) is not doing a “Jack the Ripper” but rather a “Dracula” thing with his artificial and finely-honed fangs gleaming in the nightlight. And my apologies to the young victim, who now may be read as indeed innocent, for suspecting her of unseemly activity….
A sufficiently bizarre new villain for Tracy to track!
Whiskey Tango Foxtrot ! ! !
So apparently the artist came back after the Minit Mystery, but the writer hasn’t yet…
And up until then, it had just been a bad hair day….
Thinking Jeckel & Hyde
Fangs for the memories.
Fee Fi Foe Fum ..somebody has the “munchies”. Between “hickeys” he croons a melody “for your precious blood means more to me” until I find my next victim.
