Along with all of your snacks, furniture, and comic books. At least the victim in this cartoon made a noble effort to get rid of the alien attacker by… um… using his remote control? Sorry, dude, you can’t just turn off a blob attack like a bad horror sequel on Netflix — should have kept a flamethrower under that purple couch.
Now before some of you go accusing me of “fat shaming” people that lay around on the couch eating pizza and popcorn all the time, let me point out:
1) the guy ain’t all that fat (he’s only a blob in the evenings and that gut tucks in real well with a belt).
2) it’s a self portrait.
Thanks for reading! Creep, leap, or slide back here next week for another horror comedy cartoon from Grinsane.
I wasn’t born before the first moon landing so I only imagine how exciting it was to be a part of that moment in history. It’s still an awesome thing to contemplate. Humans were really up there? Wearing moonboots and bouncing around on that golden orb that werewolves bark at? Nowadays top headlines are about breaking into into Area 51 and the purchase and drinking of skankwater. It’s hard to imagine mankind walking on the moon without VR gear. Dare I say I can actually understand why some people refuse to believe we were ever up there.
ABOUT THAT BUSTY SERPENTINE ELDRITCH MOON FERTILITY GODDESS…
Yes, there is a point here. People used to worship the moon many moons ago and I think it’s interesting that in 1969 humans finally reached one of their gods. The first panel contain the obelisk from 2001: A Space Odyssey, a movie which explores that idea as well. But since this is a Grinsane webcomic and not a thesis on religion, somehow the moon goddess took on an alien head and six breasts and three umbilical ports and…
Thanks to all who made Apollo 11 possible, and thanks for reading Grinsane!
It’s always easy to overlook the hard work of our mothers who brought us into this world and dealt with the countless horrors of raising us (mucus, diapers, children’s television programming). But no mother is more neglected in this regard than the host mothers who endure the pains of pregnancy only to realize later they have given birth to aliens, Children of the Damned, and occasionally, the Anti-Christ himself.
This Mother’s Day, take a [brief] pause from celebrating your own mother and raise your jeweled chalice to the forgotten horror moms who have done so much to bring forth the Apocalypse, both alien and demonic. Host mothers, your hard work is appreciated!
Smells like rotten human, dead cat, and radiator fluid. Kind of like a port-o-potty at a NASCAR race.
I based this comic on the iconic scene from Alien 3 where Ripley comes cheek-to-face with her biomechanical nemesis (a xenomorph, in the Alien parlance). However, instead depicting the bald, military Ripley from that film, I drew her more like the original Ripley – with her amazing mop. I wasn’t going to let the question of cinematic accuracy distract me from the pleasure of cartooning a fantastic hairdo.
CERTS IN SPACE
Shaving Ripley bald may have been the first mistake of Alien 3, a notorious box office flop. Actually, I think all but the ending of the movie (heresy) is plenty okay, especially compared to some of what has followed. Truly the Alien franchise is a classic example of “nothing beats the original.” However, the “Alien kiss” scene in 3 has definitely transcended the movie it was hatched in and withstood the test of time, not to mention sending a message to future astronauts: bring extra breath mints.
This cartoon was a last minute addition while I continue work on my epic “Attack of the Late Summer” ants series (three thematically related cartoons detailing my ongoing battle with the sinister ants who keep invading the house).
