So that the rest of us can enjoy them. Actually, these four sisters rather delight in their work, so don’t feel too sorry for them as they fly away with your children and turn your neighbors into frogs.
But witches aren’t evil
Not all, but some of them are, who can deny that? We’ve all known one or two. And in the Grinsane Comics Universe, evil witches outnumber good ones by about 19 to 1. Be glad you’re not a cartoon!
Dress for Success
In other words, bundle up. Nationwide this is supposed to be one of the coldest Halloweens on record (cold as a witches…) Make sure to put your gloves on before flying your broom into the stratosphere.
All can be familiars, those supernatural creatures that appear in animal form to help witches work their craft. Black cats are the most famous, of course, but after researching this matter on YouTube, I discovered that quite a few dogs serve the role as well, not to mention birds, deer, and even the occasional honey badger.
Spiritual Guide or Food Hungry Butt Kisser?
This is the big question. Is the reason your cat follows you around the house because it shares a deep psychic connection with you and longs to assist you in casting love spells on weary travelers? Or does the little “demon” just want to make sure you don’t stray too far from the food bowl? Hm.
Thanks for reading! See you next Friday for… yes… Friday the 13th. You can expect a Jason cartoon every time that ominous date rolls around on the calendar, so check back soon to see what’s happening at America’s most notorious summer camp.
The answer of course is ghosts, witches, giant bats, the Grim Reaper, and ancient missing warplanes flying around the earth on eternal bombing missions. Why don’t we hear more about this stuff? Because what happens at the Cheyenne Mountain Halloween Party stays at Cheyenne Mountain Halloween Party. Incidentally, any mountain named “Cheyenne” definitely has some Indian graves underneath, which might help to explain the high levels of supernatural activity that occur there.
Certainly all that fancy pants equipment detects some interesting stuff. Based on countless TV shows and movies about ghosts, it doesn’t take much more than a old TV or a transistor radio to pull in communications from the Other Side. Heck, even an old board game from Parker Brothers will do the trick. Now imagine having the Hubble Telescope of spirit detection sitting at your fingertips. The place should be renamed to Witch Mountain.
AIR FORCE WINGS
In case you are wondering about the eagles, there is no great mystery there. Just as the Navy has attempted to utilize dolphins in the defense of our country (by blowing them up, the jerks), these birds work for the Air Force — killing fish, making horrible screeching noises, and symbolizing patriotism.
Just a few more days till Halloween! Do you have your Silver Shamrock mask ready? (there is a reference to that reference in this cartoon, BTW). There may be an extra cartoon next week if I find some extra time and work efficiently, otherwise, Happy Halloween and see you in November for another horror comedy comic from Grinsane!
Every city has one nowadays. Every parking lot, it seems. You know exactly what I mean… a cutesy farmers market with arts and crafts and unfortunate children baked into pies. Because that’s what’s really going on with these things. The witches have left the forest and brought their black magic to your local park.
Sound absurd? Consider this: Have you ever seen so many candles on display outside of a church or a seance? What about the weird lotions and soaps these people are always selling? How about those feathery dreamcatchers, strange necklaces, and oddly shaped crystal items? Yes, your local farmer’s market is run by witches. Search your soul, you’ve known the truth all along.
But wait, you say, what about all the men selling cheese and honey at these things? They can’t be witches, too.
Well, of course they can. There is nothing a male witch likes better than to strain a batch of honey or age some cheese and watch the delighted expression on your face when you stab a sample with a toothpick. And how about the guys with the rehabilitated birds? In some cases, not just the handlers, but the birds themselves are witches. Male witches are everywhere! Anyone with a beard longer than 3 inches is suspect.
This comic was great fun to draw (although a bit of a pain to color). I’ve been doing lots of movie parodies lately, so I wanted to get back to basics with a good old fashion witch cartoon. It was actually tough to settle on only three “witch craft” kiosks to showcase, and sadly my frog transformation booth had to be placed on the sacrificial altar. I do have an idea I’m thinking about, however — an open call for additional booths from other cartoonists that I will stitch into a longer, potentially endless line of witch craft booths. I’m still working out the details on this and thinking of making it part of a Grinsane one-year anniversary special. Sharpen your pencil and stay tuned!
Thank you for reading another Grinsane comic. Check back next week for more strange and weird horror comedy comics and cartoons!
