I truly truly don’t mean for this to be obnoxious and only informative but *feeling.
Thank you! The odd typo is doomed to slip through now and then. It’s since been corrected, but it might take the server a little while to refresh the image.
Yep, antagonist and protagonist all rolled up in one tidy, curmudgeony package.
“Things that are dead should stay dead!” That reminds me of the legend of “Mel’s Hole”.
Book was much better, but then again I’m a bit of a snob about that 🙂 But you are right. For someone who was so watchful of being manipulated by that place, Jud certainly dove right into being a pawn.
A. The book is always better, even if the book is a Stephen King novel.
B. While Stephen King is a talented story-teller, his writing is a bit too easy. I prefer to read something more “al dente”, with at least some intellectual challenge. When he does create a particularly complex scenario, he all-too-quicky resorts to the deus ex machina conclusion.
C. Still think You’re a snob? LOL
I did say a bit 😉 There are a few books that stood out a bit from the usual. Eyes of the Dragon for one. Others, like Under The Dome, built up well then just petered out and made for a let down of an ending. Hearts in Atlantis was just..bland. It didn’t really peak my interest until the Dark Tower series and then it fit in like that one wonky puzzle piece. Dean Koontz had some nice books, then he started churning them out like a factory and they all really blended together (either with the titles or the storyline. He could almost always be counted on for a hero dog).I still read them both, mostly because they are easy reads while I knit). It’s almost like that spate of slasher flicks, Scream and I Know What You Did Last Summer? You know they are all just as bad, you know they are all just as cheesy, but you watch them anyways.
So You can read and knit, simultaneously? How?
hardcover books propped open or my kindle. hated to give into the ereader, but I couldn’t keep paperbacks open. And for those boring times of ribbing, garter, or st st, I end up getting bored with the project. But if I have a book that at least somewhat captures my attention, I’m good to go. Freaks people out when I talk with them while making rounds on a dice pouch.
I’m not alone in the multitasking! I still struggle at reading while knitting, but I can easily talk to someone without even looking at the stockinette stitches I’m making.
The book didn’t have the Ramones, though…
I’ve discovered your webcomic today, and I’ve read them all in one thread.
I really think your work is great, thank you for making such wonderful work!
I’d like to second Laila’s comment. You guys are awesome!
Man, I really like the names he chose for the kids in that book.
I wonder if you bury poop there if it will come back a sandwich I ate last night.
If it did, You wouldn’t want to eat it again! ‘Cause, Y’know, Monster Sandwich.
You could risk it but it’d only come back… wrong. Like with wholemeal bread, margarine, brown lettuce or worst of all *gulp* the bacon replaced with anchovies!
The ‘Don’t go there-here are the directions!’ one is a beloved horror film trope. Just look at the old Hammer film DRACULA PRINCE OF DARKNESS, where our heroes end up at Castle Dracula (which isn’t on the map) at least partly because they were told about it by another character who told them not to go there.
Stephen Fry did a lovely parody of this sort of thing years ago. A lawyer is invited to Dracula’s home, but is asked not to bring any wooden stakes, garlic, crucifixes and silver, and not to look up the word ‘Vampire’ in a dictionary. When said lawyer tells his boss about this, said boss asks “So you plan to go on this suici—-on this fascinating trip?”
I’M NOT THE ONLY ONE!!!
Ive never seen the film, but in the book its much more believable when he takes him up there the first time, and the guy is tearing himself apart with guilt afterwards cause his moment of weakness allowed It to grab the new guy.
This book creeped me out so much O.O
He was being forced by the Pet Sematary to reveal the Pet Semetary. It’s kalled Kinging. Durr….
Ehm, sorry, but is “sema/etary” really a usual spelling, rather than “cemetery”?
You’re correct that it’s usually “cemetery,” but this is referencing Stephen King’s novel/movie, which spells it “sematary.” The reason for the misspelling is that the sign for the titular cemetery was supposedly created by children, who are bound to screw up on the word “cemetery.”
Just started reading and was already in love- Then you spelled King’s movie/book title right and now I think I’m in lust!
Second movie does the same thing, but I kind of like it more…mostly because I prefer the hell dog to the demon kid *nod nod*
