Well, this is inexplicably Weirdly-themed.

I’ve more or less got an update for once! I actually did Fangylump’s tragically non-informative profile page a while back.

The only link to it was on a spinning GIF of Count Weirdly’s face, just to see if anyone noticed it while checking for alt text. You never know.

Anyway, until I get today’s comic, it’s time for a semi-weekly dig into the archives!

Slylock Fox – October 20th, 2002 (click for full)


Is there anything worse than the idea that Count Weirdly’s mother– I’m sorry, mommy— is out there, alive and in regular contact with her green-skinned freak? How can she tolerate his mad scientist lifestyle, unless she sits at home making monsters… herself…

Guys, I know why Weirdly has green skin.

    Well, what if Weirdly’s first action upon regaining consciousness was to see the pen drying out, panic, and put the cap on, only then noticing the broken cage? Didn’t think of that, did you, Fox?

    Family strip or not, if Max can enrage the monster enough to come back by flipping it off, then the ends will justify the means. (Well, unless the monster just tears everybody limb from limb. Can Max put himself in pointless danger?)

      He pretty much does just by hanging out with Slylock. I don’t think imminent death even phases him anymore.

      I like that he’s calling back to them. “Don’t worry you guys, I’ll give him the bird!”

    That’s quite a library collection Count Weirdly has. Bugs. Nonsense, Slime… and Something called Little Toot?? A book on infantile flatulence?? Are these books necessary manuals for Weirdly’s scientific work? or are they just fake books like the ones people use to make their homes looks sophisticated?

    • Inkwell says:

      No one will actually let Weirdly set foot in their business, so he has a hard time buying books. These are just what he managed to get bookstore owners to throw at him.

    On further review I also see there is a book titled E=Mc ?”. This intrigues me. I’m assuming that after the animal apocalypse..the world’s nuclear arsenal was either exhausted or rendered unusable by the anthro-animals. Apparently the world governments had forsight and joined together long enough to make sure that the knowledge of nuclear power was destroyed to protect the world from the animals….and apparently the Weirdly’s, as well. But that hasn’t stopped Count Weirdly from trying to build the bomb. If only he could find that unknown exponent??? “E=mc13?” “Drat!! Another failure!!”

    What are the answers “spilled soda pop, window, book…” even FOR? “What doesn’t appear in this scene?” Some extra puzzle that got cropped out? WHAT YOU SHOULD ADD TO THE SPIDER DRAWING? I’m lost.

    • Inkwell says:

      Oh, er, I didn’t notice those. I normally just crop the archive finds down to the Slylock puzzle 1) for space and 2) because uploading full daily strips is already legally dubious.

      I guess we’ll never know…
