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.
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!
Do you want to build a snowman? Who can forget the plaintive song of that dewy eyed girl in that weird movie about two creepy sisters who live in a frozen palace in the snowy north. After being initially spurned, the older sister finally does make an abominable snowman with her younger sibling. It’s a classic moment that melts even the coldest of hearts…
Unfortunately, the girls’ father Grady soon chops both of them up with an axe, and the young sisters spend the rest of eternity wandering the hallways of the hotel where he was the caretaker. It’s a wonderful movie, although a bit scary in parts.
Incidentally, the sisters in this cartoon are from Finland, and that’s modern day Stockholm in the background. There is a word in Old Norse for being hexed by Finnish witches – finnvikta – and that’s exactly what these young girls are doing to the city of Stockholm.
Why, you ask? Because these sisters are completely evil, not to mention Grinsane. They also had to pay 30 dollars for a cheeseburger while visiting the Viking museum, and that’s got them peeved. By the sway, if you think building a classic snowman with a carrot nose and a corn hole pipe is fun, you should try building an abominable one with black magic.
Just for fun, since you’re still reading, I want you try and say the word abominable five times as quickly as you can. Then try the alternative version of the same word and try and say “abominidable” five times as well (that’s the version I would have used if I didn’t get spell checked into using the proper one). Once you’ve got those words mastered, you’re half way towards building your own snowman using nothing but magical words in Old Finnish. And if you ever succeed at that, pray you have a flamethrower handy!
This week is Snow Week here on Grinsane, so make sure to check back Thursday for another creepy cartoon. If you are new to this toon, I invite you to step through the 15 horror comedy comics online now!
This witch broom is powered on pure evil, none of that unleaded or ethanol diluted malevolence. And no gasoline, either! The reason for that should be obvious (brooms are made of straw and wood, gasoline is flammable, witches have a bad history with fire… enough said).
There is rumor in the witch world that innovative German witches are currently developing a broom powered by lunar powered batteries, but no such broom has been seen in the skies yet. In the meantime, witches will continue to fill up their dutiful transportation sticks with the good stuff, I mean the bad stuff, provided at secret filling stations across the globe.
