I feel like the grandma went down too easy. Have the writers ever met an old Eastern European lady? In a contest between an old Eastern European lady and Satan, I’m betting on the one in the babushka.
Love Scully’s “You seriously believe?” expression.
Not a fair fight. All the babushkas have those ginormous wooden rolling pins, not to mention the stuffed, oversized handbag.
Panel #5 is sheer genius!
See rule #1 vis-a-vi Terry Pratchett, revised and updated for Babushkas.
Well, to be fair to the rule one, she wasn’t exactly smiling..at all.
“The ability of skinny old ladies to carry huge loads is phenomenal. Studies have shown that an ant can carry one hundred times its own weight, but there is no known limit to the lifting power of the average tiny eighty-year-old Spanish peasant grandmother.” Priatchett – “Reaper man”
Is it just me or was the 90s obsessed with dead ghost twins? I have nothing to give as proof other than a strong remembrance.
Dude! Loving the Night Stalker Gravatar. Darren McGavin FTW.
The 100 dollars for original art… does that include shipping? (to Germany, at that)
It does indeed!
I came here after it was mentioned in today’s Irregular Webcomic annotation and have just read through the whole thing. Really looking forwards to more of these, I used to love The X-Files.
Given that the supernatural exists in the X-files universe along with aliens, mutants, psychics, monsters and the occasional Machine Intelligence Gone Wrong, it strikes me there are untouched possibilities here. Could you sic Satan on the aliens, for instance?
…you cannot imagine how much glee it has brought to my life, Shaenon, to realize that you have ANOTHER webcomic, especially with the Narbonic Director’s Cut coming to an end this week.
As a big X-Files fan growing up, it also brings me great joy to see its hilarity and weirdness rendered into comic form. Well played
Chickens are badass.
Goulash and babushkas. What more do you need in life?
