    Yeah if it's not actively trying to murder people, they tend not to want it in Australia.

    He has a point. If all it does is look freaky, what's the point?

    You want to unleash paranormal terror on a country that already has the world's deadliest everythings, and where the cutest animal still has an incomprehensibly offensive odor and an ear piercing banshee scream, you bring something a little more impressive than a grumpy ghost. That guy probably shook scarier things out of his shoe this morning.

    How did we get to the point where Tycho is performing a dark ritual to bring back the dead... out of benevolence?

  • cloudmattcloudmatt Registered User regular
    Wow, yeah....it might be hard to get Australia into a Halloween kinda mood. Days of nail biting horror are every day when just about everything in your country can kill you.

    Beautiful beautiful art, except for that guy's nose!

    I love how disappointed the ghost looks at being found unscary.

    This is pretty much my reaction to Pokemon announcing the Fairy-type.

    Also, Abby is awesome. Keep up with TLH because it's the tits!

    I love League of Legends, but seriously...screw you, Teemo.

    See, I'd figure that Australians don't have Halloween simply because Australia is a constantly terrifying place filled with ready-made monsters to go.

    Weredingos are probably, like, just a thing you deal with on a weekly basis. No reason to dress up to scare each other.

    Plus, I assume all Australians are adept monster hunters, so you wouldn't want to confuse someone and end up expertly trapped and on the Nature channel.

    Spoiler Alert! Way to ruin the joke, @Darkewolfe.

    My bad.

    What is this I don't even.

    So no really related to the comic, but after reading the newspost, it appears that somebody *cough* Jerry *cough* forgot an [/i] in the post, most likely due to chrono-stepping a day into the future. Curiously, it seems to have propagated not only through the rest of the post, but also through the rest of the page (including the links on the right hand side). Was wondering if anyone else had noticed...

    I just love how self-conscious the specter looks in the last panel. Don't be mean to the specter, man! It's doing it's best.

    That first panel looks amazing! And I don't really know why, but I find the joke really funny. Like way too funny

    On a side note, anyone knows if PAX Aus will be streamed on Twitch like usual? Because they didn't update the schedule or anything...

  • jothkijothki Registered User regular
    I'd think that if you wanted to frighten an Australian, you'd make your ghosts look like rabbits.

    What you have to understand is that in Australia, everything is pretty much trying to kill us already.

    Nah; I was too distracted wondering why, if they don't do Hallowe'en in Australia, the guy had some sort of costume nose glued on his face.

    I've never collected a PA pin, but I want a pin of the third-panel ghost.

    I love when Penny Arcade gets silly and out of the ordinary. Tycho summoning angry ghosts on top of the Sydney Opera House? Yes please.

    I can verify that the nose is an accurate rendition of the typical australian.
