Yeah, I know, named Squig. I meant the guy in the mask.

I'm pretty sure the government is totally into more extreme stuff than that.

So many ways to take these "gag"/"submission" puns...I'm sooooo tempted. Fuck it. I'm tired anyway. I'll leave it to the experts and hopefully will see awesome results in the morning.

double entendre (my spellcheck says this isn't a word, gah! It also says that "spellcheck" and "gah" aren't words, either! GAAAAHHH.) away!!

Nah, I prefer not to argue with the witless.

Seriously, though, anyone else... does this guy really have no status or relation within the sinfest universe beyond "noncanon" gags? I was under the impression he was at least an employee of Devilcorp as opposed to a blatant nonentity.

there are no noncanon gags in Sinfest

everything has a chance of getting bound and woven into the overarching "story", such as it is

as for this particular character, he has been shown working in the bomf district: http://sinfest.net/archive_page.php?comicID=4646 (in this particular comic Tat tagged him with "executioner")
as well as running weird seminars (double entedre again) that may or may not have been associated with DevilCorp



He is at the very least associated with porn culture, as seen in 2012-05-13 Stop Porn Culture 4, and in 2012-06-17 Empathy we see that it is his axe that deals the breaking blow to Slick's pornsick heart. In these earlier strips he was meant to be a foreboding rhetorical force (even if he isn't a very convincing one) rather than a gag character, I guess. Unless this is a different executioner?



Any association with DevilCorp he may have doesn't have anything to do with today's strip, however, so his role in today's comic really doesn't go beyond "reoccurring gag character"



Maybe this is a sign that Sinfest is getting less serious again. Hm? Hm.

if you want that to happen then you're probably going to have to draw it yourself, or rope someone else into drawing it for you

Hah :>

Well this one has a bad aftertaste though.
There are those who equal BDSM with patriarchy/misogyny, which is just, you know, not true.
