I suppose it’s about time Abraxas got served a little punishment, even if by accident. I know some animal rights activists have been using flour lately on people who flaunt their fur, but it doesn’t quite have the same impact as red paint. Not that I approve of those tactics, of course. Well, not all the time, anyway. If you want to know more about Peta’s Fur is Dead campaign, click here (note: some of the images at the site are hard to look at, but really, that’s the point.)
I’d like to give credit where it’s due by pointing out that the fonts used in today’s strip are from the brilliant and creative typefaces available at Blambot.com. I’ve mentioned them before, as I’ve used Blambot’s SuperStrong as the dialogue font for JEFbot from the start. Today’s strip not only uses SuperStrong, but You Murderer (appropriately enough) and Orange Fizz for the “GoOOosh” sound effect. Nate Piekos, the designer behind Blambot, not only has great prices on his fonts but also generously makes many of them available for free, so check out his site often and see what he has to offer.
go Abraxas…go forth and rip the filthy mortals of their souls.
heheheh. someday we’ll see Abraxas doing some soul-ripping, JF3, but for now i think jefbot would like to avoid a lawsuit.
Great strip Jefbot…I’m RED-y for more! Abraxas is so cute!!
glad you dig the ferret, JP. and thanks for the pun! 🙂
OH SNAP! Animal shoulder chillin’ is the shit! Living warm fuzzy creatures make awesome scarves.
living animal clothing will be the new trend of ’09. mark my words, Cheddarman!
haha, animal activists are stupid!!!! the artwork in these panels is amazing!!!
yikes! can’t agree with you on your first point, g. but thanks for the kudos on the artwork! 😀
XD that is amazing 😀
thank you much, DJ!
Went to furisdead.com and something caught my eye… Raptors? *imagines!* (screencap under website link)
ha! i guess some of them did make it off Isla Nublar, Becca!!! lol
LOL! There’s an added layer of humor to think that someone thought that ‘Bot was actually wearing a stoll. It WOULD go nicely with the baseball shirt and jeans!
heheh. true that, Stan! if i ever redesign jefbot’s outfit, a stole and a velvet pimp hat might have to be part of the new look.
Amazing! I laughed out loud!!! So funny! I LOVE the last frame…
Rock on Jefbot!
thanks Funnyshaffer! i will do my best to rock on.
This is sooooo funny, bot! I love it. Your facial expressions coupled with the cute ferret on your shoulders is priceless. Especially when you’re both covered in red paint. Oh and the red paint looks so realistic. 😉 Great job as always, bot.
thanks, MC. i’ll take the “cute” comment to mean you’re down with a ferret if i end up getting one.
HA! That literally made me laugh out loud. Very funny, man! I love that we don’t see the attacker
thanks, dude. if all goes according to plan, the attacker will be revealed in the next strip! 🙂
I Love it!!!! Abraxas, Shred the evil paint thrower!!!
I can’t wait for Abraxas to meet my Dexter!!! 🙂
abraxas vs. dexter. who would win, Xin!?
…I soooooo wanted the fourth panel where Abraxas’ vengeance was unleashed.
Also, side note, used “You Murderer” for a project last Halloween. I think I found it because of you.
someday Abraxas’s rage shall be unleashed, eleventeen, but not just yet. and i’m happy you found a font over at Blambot!
Abraxas, lifetime member of FEAST. (Ferrets Eating Annoyingly Stupid Troublemakers)
i love the FEAST acronym, reynard61! i’d like to see the other members of that society. 🙂
Another awesome one that made me laugh out loud! When I had pet rats, they would like to fall asleep on my shoulders wrapped up in my hair. So this reminded me of those times. When I first read this, I instantly thought of the pigs blood scene in Carrie. I’m already anticipating Tuesdays strip to see what happens! Kuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuudos!
ha! that the 2nd panel gave you “Carrie” visuals is cool, and the fact that your pet rats were sleeping in your hair is totally awesome, Spanky! i love that you could reply, “literally” if people told you your hair looked like a rat’s nest. 😀
another Stephen King reference, alecho! Carrie and The Shining – both good movies, so i’ll take ’em! 😀
absolutely hilarious! I laughed out loud on this one! love it!
thanks, sacobin!!! i was actually wondering what you’d think of this one. heheh. glad you dug it!
Is it just me or is everyone taking pot-shots at animal rights activists this week? Not that I disagree with taking pot-shots at activists of any kind (I’d take real shots with paint balls >:), but the animal rights kind seems to be getting beat up this week.
not meant to be a pot-shot, Eptha, just a little ribbing. 🙂 but you’re right in that the activists have been in the news a lot recently (lindsay and sam, pet shop boys/rescue shelter boys, madonna, etc.) which just makes the target a little easier to hit.
Awesome strip as always! Love the fonts I’ll have to check them out. If someone did that to me I’d have a few choice words for them, all of which would make a pirate cry.
It’s not just Eptha. I’ve taken notice of a few shots around the interbuttz at animal rights zealots as well. Maybe something happened in the news… or maybe the planets are aligned and there’s been a web comic mind meld!
it’s funny, Foxmouse – it does seem like the webcomic collective unconscious comes together around certain topics no matter how obscure. when i get an idea i generally try to get it out there as soon as possible, knowing that others will be working with similar thoughts.
I wonder if that would actually happen…if so I need to get me a ferret!
it would, and you should, jhorsley3!
Heh…I guess, that´s one dead PETA-activist. And one statisfied weasel^^
not dead yet, Nos482… HA! i love your handle!!!
I gotta admit that although I admire what PETA does there’s NO way I’m gonna turn vegetarian. My aunt is a nutricionits-naturist and she firmly believes we do need meat, just as we need veggies and all the sort. My grandpa has a farm and we eat the animals that are raised there. We got our own cows, sheeps and chicken! 😀
I do confess that I’ve always found weird using fur for clothes and I’ve never gone that way, but I did freaked out some time ago about weather or not my beloved goth boots were made out of leather!!! My mom slapped some sense into me: none of my boots could be made out of REAL leather since they all cost less than $40.00 and REAL leather is expensive 😛 and then we made a Google seach about the brand I prefer for my boots and they all say PLEATHER so now I feel much better about indulging myself in my boot fetish XD
I do hope Abraxas get’s on the guy’s face though XD
Just to say, I found the comic when jefbot just got the weasel, I read all the archives! I like them,keep it up!
Abraxas is just too adorable! Hope he becomes a regular!
thanks for going through the archives, Trevory! and glad you like Abraxas – i can’t say he’ll be around forever, but he’ll be around for quite a while. 🙂
43 comments! I hate you, Jeff! 😉
My wife’s cat actually rides around on her shoulders like that. It’s pretty amusing to watch.
well, half of those comments are mine, Kevin! so divide your hate by half. heheh. would love to see your wife’s cat riding around on her shoulders. pretty soon your newborn will be riding on yours! 😀
The surprised looks of Abraxas and Jefbot are hysterical.
It’s funny because PETA puts down almost 90% of the stray pets that are brought into them every year, y’know, because they believe that pets shouldn’t exist and they’ll kill healthy ones merely because they were raised by humans.
