Yeah, it seemed like it'd been too long since something exciting happened.
Showing my age with a Remington Steele quote: "Because we were kissing! Someone's ALWAYS shooting at us when we're kissing!"
...they didn't know to stay out of line of sight of windows when being targeted???
Betty dancing was exciting. Could use some more of that...
Hmm. I'm now wondering if this world has actual Sam Sprinkles theme parks.
Yup. Personally, I like to think that this vampire is fairly new and is operating on the "well, this is what vampires do in the movies" principle. :)
So sorry; that reply went to the comment above the one I meant it to.
Why do they always go for hissing first? Rip out a throat, then hiss. Dramatic posturing over dead people is just as satisfying and less likely to result in giving them time to react.
It's as if some narrative force is trying to keep these people alive or something.
That looks like Walter.
He doesn't look angry so much as worried. He's probably about to put his rotting neck on the line again to help these ungrateful misfits out of a jam.
Could be all the shards of glass in his face
That poor window...
Like Chandler says, if the plot's slowing down, have a ghoul burst through the window.
If someone going OUT through a window is defenestration, what is the word for someone going IN through a window?
That would be "infenestration": but, technically, since he's going *through* the window itself (rather than in or out of it), it should be "transfenestration". 7@=Q
(Read Thomas Pynchon's "Vineland" for details)
BTW, that first ghost's expression amuses me:
"Um, isn't there something else you should be doing, instead of farting around on your phone?" 7@=Q
Tomie looks like she's been drugged. I guess she... uh, hasn't learned how humans act startled yet?
She's not getting a bad feeling, Jack is. The trouble hasn't happened yet at that panel, so she isn't startled.
And this is what Sam's saying in the last panel:
For some strange reason I'm suddenly feeling nostalgic for the ol' "Joe Does Something" animations.
looks like he's frozen in time
Is that.... Is that that Nosferatu-looking vampire that's been a background character?
For example, here, in panel 4?
Though I understand they've taken to interpreting "welcome" mats as invitations...
