I’ve run out of jokes for Lotus Cobra is Evil. Of course, the logical thing to do is start upgrading all the old strips. But whenever I try to do that, I get bored really fast. The mark of a professional is to forge ahead and do your job even when you don’t feel like it, so I’ll have one upgraded strip for you next week. Since the upgrades take less time to do than the new ones, I’ll have spare time to draw the stuff I feel more like drawing.
I’m sorry for not being able to keep my promise to give you one new strip and one upgraded old one every week. I’m no better than a politician or a sports league commissioner.
This week, you get an intermission with stuff from some other card game. My hope is that I will get my motivation back eventually.
Shion and Silk are from Tanto Cuore: Expanding the House.
For some reason, these two are my favorite characters from the first expansion. Maybe it’s because they have that heroine look to them. You can totally see them flying down the corridors of some mansion, dodging the knives thrown by some enemy maid.
So the Theros expansion block of Magic the Gathering was about Heliod, the sun god, recruiting the planeswalker Elspeth Tirel to be his champion. Xenagos, a planeswalker who had found a way to achieve godhood, was sowing chaos across the universe as a new god of destruction. Heliod’s godly power and Elspeth’s planeswalker power were enough to defeat the planeswalker god, and Theros was saved.
And then Heliod killed Elspeth. The official statement was that he was afraid that Elspeth might want to become a god too. Heliod is such a jackass, it shouldn’t surprise you to learn that the official statement is a total lie. Heliod’s true reason is much more detestable.
It’s been said that God hates Cleveland.
Now as for Cleveland sports…
well, some gods hate Cleveland sports.
Instead, today we commemorate the demise of the Ship creature type, which now exists only in the joke set Unhinged.
When Jace was younger, he would sometimes dress in a non-traditional manner for fun. But now that he’s the Living Guildpact, a government official tasked with keeping the peace between the diverse guilds of Ravnica, he’s a lot more concerned about his image…
