    Ouch! Ow! Ow! I can’t take it any more! No mรกs! No mรกs!

  2. Norman Perrin says:

    Despite his constant stream of misses and masters Mr Dult is good at scrobbling.

    • mvandinter says:

      Presumably that’s how he got the position.

      scrobble
      (slang) To waylay, kidnap or steal.
      I had to look it up ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. wintermute says:

    At this point Dult should just go ring the doorbell and ask for the butler.

    • crazyman says:

      BRILLIANT! Why didn’t I think of that? Cut, print, check the gate, moving on. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Ed8 says:

      He really shouldn’t even need to ask – the butler ought to be the guy who answers the door, right? Maybe that’s the problem – they have a lazy butler. Dult rings the door, someone else has to answer it because the butler’s a slacker, and they get snatched?

      • mvandinter says:

        Oh yeah. That’s totally accurate. You’re just not seeing the polite exchange of pleasantries between the victims and their abductor.

  4. Two-A says:

    He’ll kindnap the whole city at this rate.

  5. alurker says:

    At this level of (in)competence, I am beginning to suspect he may be trolling.

  6. Ed8 says:

    I’m a bit befuddled by the lack of Kickstarter funding – it’s a TWC top 25 webcomic, I would have thought that many readers would have almost guaranteed funding? My theory is that most of the readers are actually lizard people, and don’t have human money. It’s just a working theory, though.

    • mvandinter says:

      You’re not alone in being befuddled. I researched lots of webcomic Kickstarters before launch, and this one is doing worse than my worst-case scenario. Admittedly Unearth’s TopWebComics numbers are inflated by the obscured-cartoon trickery I employ to motivate voters. But that does not explain why vast hordes of regular/return readers have been avoiding the Kickstarter. It’s depressing ๐Ÿ™

      • Ed8 says:

        Bah! Everyone uses trickery and bribes to get TWC votes. It’s like athletes doping, it’s not cheating if everyone does it! OK, maybe that was a bad example.

        It is quite depressing, though – I may never get to see actual dinosaurs! I was at least looking forward to complaining about the lack of them for the next 5 years or so.

  7. Ed8 says:

    Maybe it’s one of those weird psychological things – peoples’ subconscious tells them it’s just a “prologue” so they should wait for the main story? Perhaps if it were called “Chapter 1” or even better “Book 1”? (Despite the fact that the prologue is longer than most webcomics first “books”) Hey, it’s better than my lizard people theory!

  8. Lizardmen says:

    Oh, sure, we do one little multinational conspiracy for global domination
    and now every little thing gets blamed on us.

  9. Aslandus says:

    He managed to grab an armed policeman but not the butler? His people-grabbing skill is matched only by his poor identification skill…

  10. shadowmoon522 says:

    if all else fails, abduct the police

  11. Uhl says:

    You don’t suppose he’s getting the wrong target on purpose, now do you?
