Yeah, Lil'E summoned him while trying to make his own version of the three-headed dog Big D has (Cerberus-like).

It's been so long since we've seen that little mutt.

Plug the game console back in, we need more strips like this.

Unlike the squee-ers, I find this Sunday strip rather weak. More incident than story. Valid to focus on the 'power of friendship' in helping Little 'E' escape from his recent self-pity, but I don't think it's especially punchy here, taking this strip by itself. Still: the strip does make me curious about whether Seymour shall now begin playing this Demon Apocalypse game enthusiastically. I can imagine him getting into it, which would be fun. Possibly this strip is little more than a set-up for that.

IIRC, there are at least a couple of English translation versions floating around on the web, it just takes a bit of searching to find them. One team translated the first 8 chapters or so, and a guy named PharmaDan translated the rest of volume 1 and at least some of volume 2.

I always found it bizarre that they took what was a 'mature' comic (blood, nudity, pretty excessive cruelty, etc) and turned it into a cartoon they could show on a kid's channel. Did love the art style in the cartoon though.

Josť is the best character.

Actually NOT having a deep meaning or story is kind of refreshing, I can only take so much social justice warrior stories. These were the kind of comics I enjoyed in the past, just mindless fun.

I like this strip. It's fun. And I got to see Pebbles say things in her cute awkward-spelling way.

I found them, I read them, and now I'm sad because I have to wait for that Dan guy to translate the rest.

The animation in that cartoon was goddamn fantastic for a kid's show. Recently I think Disney adapted Tron Legacy into an animated series, so it's not like odd things aren't turned into cartoons all the time haha.

I loved Josť in the animated series, but reading the comic just... yeah no Neutral Sort of spoiled the character for me.

I'd really like to see the animation team that did the Cybersix cartoon make a Tintin cartoon (all the books, in episode form?) in the same style.
