Latest Next First Previous #615 - Unicorn charge

Osk says:

after all, horses can charge. and a unicorn is somewhat like a horse that comes to a point. and its pointing at you. at that, its a sharp point as well. You get my point?

Odo says:

Oh....a herd of unicorns in the snow. *hugs Alien for thinking of this* So beautiful.

Alien says:

Thanks, but do go hug Mith. His invention.

Firelander says:

Caribet says:

Lovely - very lovely!

Pulsar says:

Oooh pretty! Probably explains the horse that just appeared in the sketchbook section. There's no in-between-frames-pixies in todays comic ... i wonder why :P

hkmaly says:

Hmmm .... so many white unicorns ... should we worry about black unicorns behind our (or cameramans?) back?

Vulpis says:

So...which one's voiced by Mia Farrow? ;-)

Anakha says:

And more important, what are they running from? The Forest does not seem aflame......;)

RocksMapsandCrafts says:

Fantastic art! Well Done! Happy Holidays!

Winterbay says:

Cool. Glad you didn't take the cop out of Donald Duck with the "4 ice bears in a snowstorm" (i.e. a white painting...).
Allthough I must admit to having seen one such a pinting IRL it was black and called "Blind man looking out through a window"...

Thena says:

Gorgeous.

Ultrainventor says:

so that answers my question. that is a lot of unicorns.

Chariset says:

Looks like we're going to learn about the Lady's backstory....

Ladyfox7oaks says:

OH! How Beautiful! Do they run from something? or TO something, I wonder?

Fifi the Wonder Poodle says:

A group of unicorns is called a blessing...

Lusiad says:

I the only one who had the "Ride of the Valkyries" sounding in my head upon looking at that picture?

-Norbert- says:

I guess most people had a dramatic piece from "The Last Unicorn" soundtrack in their heads (hence the references to the forrest not being aflame).
But to me they don't really look afraid or like they are rushing at topspeed through the forrest. Looks more like they just gallop for the fun of it. Just a pleasure stroll you could say.

hkmaly says:

-Norbert-: I agree that they don't look afraid or frightened. But I also think that unicorns are not so gregarious and it's not normal to have so many of them on one place. Therefore, I would assume they running TO something. Maybe last virgin in area?

eekee says:

hkmaly, if I was that virgin I think I'd be frightened, unicorns being unicorns or not! XD

I'm a bit sorry for the pun which first popped into my head: Charge of the Light Brigade. I hope these creatures fare better. It's a wonderful scene. :)

Mithandir says:

Some word-of-creator:
1) Unicorns move in herds in the World That Is (see the grey unicorn backstory)
2) that was a pixie in the last strip

Inbetween says:

I know that alot of peopel already said this but...it's beutiful. well done, and a happy new year

Odo says:

Alien - I'd just as rather hug you, but I'll give Mith a hug, too. Happy New Year to the pair of you. Every posting is a joy to me.

Orca says:

Where's the crashing castle?

Osk says:

even when they dont move in herds, im sure they will cooperate if the situation warrants it. anyway, some of them on the left seem about to run into a tree. Could we get a drawing like this but more from the side? i'd really appreciate that. regards

spark ozzy says:

when will they grow back to normal size

no one says:

WAITING hope next one will be good.

spark flare says:

DON'T CONFUSE ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

spark flare says:

r u there

Zypher says:

As I recall, a group of unicorns is a glory, not a blessing... and not a herd. Herd is too mundane

Mouse says:

A herd of unicorns is called a blessing. :)

Lindale says:

I think a group of unicorns is called a glory too, but I don't know where I found that out.
It might make more sense than 'blessing' though as it's similar to a 'pride' of lions, for example?

Arious says:

If you've ever seen the movie, "The Last Unicorn" with the voice of Angela Lansbery and music by the band America, they have a few unicorn charges in that. Much the same thing and it sets the precident for unicorn charges in the first place, nice picture by the way..

spark flare says:

what was the movies name?

Kuyselle Goldword says:

Holy Cheezits Rice, that's amazing. You can hear the hooves and everything. I would be scared if I was Hermana Grande*...
*Big Sister. This is what happens when you come straight home from your Spanish midterms.

Watsuki says:

Grey Unicorn's backstory? I must've missed that somewhere... can somebody point the way?

Volxtreema says:

pwetty unicorns

Ultrainventor says:

anyone ever heard of the unicorn man? kind of strange. he got onto riplies because he had a horn on the top of his head.
anyway, nice drawing. I wonder if it would be possible to... meheheheheh. make a unicorn through genetic modification. that would be pretty cool, and, if done right, the unicorn could look as beutiful as some of these ones. gah! there I go again.

Ultrainventor says:

i cant spell...

Arious says:

Actually their is an old old and I mean really old book which describes the procedure of implanting a horn into the head of the lead horse in a herd. This was susposedly the source of the stories. This however is only a rumor more than anything else, but if it's true it would be interesting... oh, and as to the answer of the name of the movie, "The Last Unicorn" I said it earlier but apparently the person asking was a little blind.

Winterbay says:

I notice that there is now a timer to the next comic. I'm looking forward to that one already :)

Volxtreema says:

So when is the comic normally updated??

Arya says:

Hello.
Mithandir, you make me so happy with your herd of white unicorns. :)
I'm back by-the-way.

Winterbay says:

@Volxtreema: It is normally, when the creators have enough time and sanity left over to do the comic, seeing as they are busy leading ordinary lifes as well, updated Monday - Wednesday - Friday. Timer seems to indicate an update on Friday now. Yay! :)

Winterbay says:

Hm.... The timer has reset to Monday but no new comic? :(
Should there be one or was the timer lying?

Alien says:

As always, stuff always seems to happen :/
First Mithandir's mouse broke down, then i got feverishly ill. I'm hoping to be well enough to make it by monday, but things are hectic all over. Tuesday i have to go abroad for who knows how long, and well...
End line is, we're not giving up on this comic, but it looks like the universe wants us to.

Arious says:

Just remember the demented logic of a certain Furry filled elf does help to warp their minds a great deal. After dealing with that self same elf and his young dragon friend I have no doubt they need time to gain their wits once again....

Volxtreema says:

What happened to the monday update??

That guy says:

Ah well, it was a decent comment while it lasted, have fun with whatever you guys do in the RL. *deletes bookmark* *sniffles*

That guy says:

I meant to say comic but I'm horrible.

Pendraco says:

..hey.. just because it's been put on hiatus, doesn't mean it's gone for good. i'm willing to wait it out. plus us Humans have this habit of saying "screw you" to the universe until it accepts that we won't stop or it crushes us outright.

Winterbay says:

Oh, now it's 27 days. The mystery continues...

I hope it comes back soon, as I miss it already, but as a person with a busy life myself I know that things can conspire against you when you least want it. Ketchup effect and all that. My bookmark and me will be here waiting for the next installment of one of the best webcomics around atm :)

Winterbay says:

Also, if one reads what has been posted one can get information one misses in ones earlier post :)
Have fun abroad if possible :)

Furia Firelander says:

Wow 27 days, something doesn't seem right here.

says:

I'll be waiting till you return!

Winterbay says:

27 days seems like aperfectly perfect counter for a return I'd say. It's good to at least have a counter instead of an "Unknown" :)

spark flare says:

i need the movies name please!

Winterbay says:

@spark flare: I guess you mean "The Last Unicorn" ?

that guy again says:

I don't know whether the universe at large wants you to give up this, but there are several small parts of it that don't. (One of them wrote this.)

Fifi the Wonder Poodle says:

What's up with slowness of the updates? Lulz, sorry I'm kind of impatient, I just really wanna know what'll happen next! :O *tries not to hyperventilate*

Midnight says:

@Fifi:
> I just really wanna know what'll happen next! :O

1. Download latest picture
2. Set as desktop background, "original size, centered"
3. Every morning, open file in image editor, magnify to 110%, save, exit
>:-D

Someguy says:

I'm kind of disappointed that the Magnifier didn't reveal a hidden message in the snow or something... like "You found the hidden message! :O" Oh well.

Winterbay says:

Fifi: Read the post by alien a few coments up for information (quoted below):

"As always, stuff always seems to happen :/
First Mithandir's mouse broke down, then i got feverishly ill. I'm hoping to be well enough to make it by monday, but things are hectic all over. Tuesday i have to go abroad for who knows how long, and well...
End line is, we're not giving up on this comic, but it looks like the universe wants us to. "

Pendraco says:

doesn't mean they ARE giving it up though.

Aish says:

i hope not

Winterbay says:

Oh look. We have accumulated spammers. The Joy :)

spark flare says:

Mith and Alien i am kyle. try not to confuse me
spark flare out

Jenny says:

y havent they added anything in like a month?

Mint says:

because... see above, gosh darn it!

says:

when will the comix continue?

hrdcore says:

hope the comic starts back up soon. seems like all the toons I like are down now.

Winterbay says:

hrdcore: Well, it'll be at least 12 more days according to the timer. Anything before that I would seem as a huge bonus :)

RocksMapsandCrafts says:

Mith & Alien, Just another loyal reader reminding you we'll still be here and delighted when you're able to get back to posting comics again. Hope you're both well!

spark flare says:

me???

Rose says:

Hey guys,
I only started reading your comic about a week or two ago - and man was it awesome! I totally love how the artwork evolves, just like the storyline's uniqueness keeps amazing me.
Just one question though: where is this "timer" everyone keeps babbeling about?

Alien says:

Rose: Right underneath the right edge of the comic, to the left of the weird icons.

Thanks for your support, people. I'll get next thingy drawn asap, though Mith is fairly ill, so you might have to make do with my crappy colouring for a while.

Rose says:

Meh, I still can't see it - but never mind, I'm checking this site twice every day anyways ^^
I'm sad to hear Mith's ill. Get well soon, when you read this!

says:

can someone tell me a date for the next part of this comix

caribet says:

we'll still be here wishing you well - get well soon!

spark flare says:

in love????? i want the movie name!!!!

Ultrainventor says:

I bet i could make a unicorn on spore. anyone play spore?

Ultrainventor says:

oh, and I hope everything goes alright. I like this comic and I am concerned about mith and alien. they haven't added anything in, like, a month.

RocksMapsandCrafts says:

Next update counter says 5 days, 14 hours, 19 minutes... that'll be Monday March 1st way before I'm awake on the west coast of North America. :) I'm so excited!

Winterbay says:

yay! Comic is coming back! :)
Boo Mith being ill. get well soon, it's no fun being ill. People should stop being that... :)

Rose says:

Yay monday they're coming back ^^ I'm so excited to see what happends next!
