Thanks for all the birthday wishes, guys! Have you started spring cleaning yet?
brilliant. I love me some metajokes.
I can’t be the only one who saw “SUPER VACUUM VAGOO CLEANER” though.
For the record I’m wayy late on my spring cleaning.
But..urgh, cannot unsee the vagoo!
Oh thank christ I’m not the only one who read it that way. I had some terrible images pop into my brain that made my thighs close and start to ache.
For some reason, I was expecting a fisting joke when peppermint said “time to get our hands dirty”…
But its good anyway. How do you get that “ripped” appearance on your comics? Is it a special tool or effect?
Fisting?! peppermint is 9!
Maybe if Lacie had said it..
The ripped effect is drawn in SAI just like the rest of the comic, then taken into Photoshop where I simply add a drop shadow. it’s that simple and this effect is used all over the site!
Looks great on complex backgrounds, on simple white backgrounds, not so much.
Well considering the company that Peppermint is subjected to, I wouldn’t be surprised.
You never know man, you never know.
Note to self; Draw more strips of Peppermint having fun.
I remember when I was 8 and using certain words I overheard the grown-ups saying. I had no idea what they ment, but reckoned I could figure it out by how people reacted.
Stop breaking your comic. How am I supposed to read to the end when the rest of the panels go missing?
Hey I’m not the one who ripped it, it was Shelbie’s fault!
I love this page… gave me a chuckle I was sorely needing
Great, I hope it did! Cheer up! ;D
lol. peppermint should know never to have shelbie handle heavy machinery. so much for being a genius.
She still puts way too much trust and faith in her friends. A childish mistake!
Haha, didn’t see that coming.
I need to get round to dusting if I can find the duster again. :V My rooms a dust magnet.
Ironically I cannot dust my room because I have light dust allergies.
That and it just gets dusty the next day.
Oh really? D: Damn.
Tell me about it, annoying as hell, I need to get a glass case or something to stop it happening.
Have you tried wearing a painting mask and going over surfaces with a damp cloth? Kicks up less dust than a vacuum and allows you to remove that thick dust you don’t want to accumulate on exposed surfaces.
I have dreamed of such a device for yeeeeaaarrrs.
LET’S BUILD ONE
How about instead of cleaning, just pack up and move? Probably much cheaper than building that.
I like how Peppermint’s robots and mechanical constructions tend to have faces on ‘em. Typical of the lonely, abandoned orphan seeking solace and love from the things she creates.
Yes, I might well be be reading too much into this.
GET OUT OF MY MIND.
GET OUT AND STAY OUT.
She can’t move, you’ll find out why next week!
DON’T TELL ME THAT!!!! now it’s gonna be on my mind all week :L
Great comic, reminds me about my spring cleaning :3
it’s unlike Shelbie to break the 4th wall!! <– perhaps lacies influence xx
Peppermint, why bother creating a ‘maximum power’ button when all it does is suck in dust and break the 4th wall?
Well, at least it sucks in dust.
Haha, typical of her childish nature, no? I mean, when you were a kid and were forced to do chores, didn’t you wish there was a special button you could press that got rid of dirt and dust in one fell swoop?
Wait. Isn’t that Lacie who’s being childish? But then again, Peppermint’s 9 1/2. I guess that makes her a child.
“We do what we must, because we can.”
Bravo on ripping through the 4th wall.
I need to stop it, it’s like goddamn drug.
Hold on, I thougt breaking the 4th was Lacie’s job. Now Shelbie’s muscling in on her turf.
Pretty sure Shelbie did it unintentionally.
Then again, I wish I could just cut out all the trash in my room and toss it away, sigh.
I love me some fourth-wall breakage, but this one is breaking my brain a bit. How have Peppermint and Shelbie survived most of their universe (including the hell-machine itself) being sucked into oblivion?
Who says they are being sucked into oblivion! maybe, somewhere, they are starting to appear in the REAL WORLD!
Their decaptitated torsos appearing in the real world doesn’t sound very appealing either
Here is my edit for today.
Would be a million times funnier if he was in the middle of getting changed, dahaha.
I actually did think that during the time I was drawing that. Why I didn’t draw that is beyond me.
well since i live in the south hemisphere i started the autum ditying XD
Science just happened, I think.
Argh a cliffhanger.
I dunno, I think this is pretty….much…over!
A vacuum that can tear reality asunder! WHAT HAS SCIENCE DONE
Lucky me that the winter is coming here, couldn’t stand any longer the heat it was here!! XD And tell Peppermint that thing can suck some of her friends when she isn’t looking!
I think she’s gonna have to disassemble it now!
Or at least install an Anti-Shelbie safeguard.
I see what you did there with the alt text. I read it with Peppermint using an Eastern German accent.
Why is Dexter’s lab so goooooooooooood
I always wonder why mad scientists always make devices far more powerful that could ever possibly be necessary, but then I look at many cars in real life and am forced to admit it’s realistic.
Or Japan/Korea and thier crazy pointless robots.
Seriously, lifelike sex dolls. Why.
I actually DID do some much needed spring cleaning this week! Now, I didn’t tear a portion of the universe asunder in the process, but there’s always next time.
I think I have commented before but I still haven’t started, snow is still falling which means I have absolutely no energy to get it done.
I just love how it’s titled, “From Dust.” It’s just… so fitting <3
From Dust to ….well, nothing.
Also, amazing game.
I love these comics. Your style and the jokes are great. I just read through all of them. Also voted on twc.
Thanks very much! Glad you enjoyed the archive – sorry there isn’t any more!
Team Ultimate Power Vacuum Activate!
There must have been a super sentai team that used one at some point. I remember when Goggle V used a giant fly swatter against a housefly monster.
Because the fourth wall is for pussies.
what’s this button do?
OH SHIT DON’T…
is it just me or does it look like Peppermint is doing a finger-mustache in the second panel? O.o
Ahaha, she’s meant to be lookin’ smart!
hey, who said finger-mustaches weren’t smart? x3
