Without the Angry Scarf, let’s hope bot has some mad broom-fu skills, or he’s gonna be in trouble, methinks.
Super Scrawn: JEFBOT.368_New Threads
Passed out on the couch: JEFBOT.387_Threading the Needle
Oh Bot, it wasn’t going to be that easy!! XD
so true, f_f! on some level, jefbot must’ve known it, too.
and check you out – you just achieved the Shades of Firsting two times in a row so you get the Double Shades! wear them well: these battle evildoers with ease:
Woohoo! The armory grows!
by the powers of Scarf I summon thee…no that’s not it
SHAZAMM!….ok wrong comic
oh well I tried maby he will have better luck
maybe bot should try your invocation, drakeye! “SHAZAMM!” might just do the trick. 😉
Happy Friday! Surely the Scarf wont leave Bot to die?
happy friday, DAS! as for the Scarf – one can only hope that if it knew bot was in danger, it would help.
I think he needs to do the eyes thing. Whatever he did to resonate with the scarf while he was wearing it.
you may be right, blackjacket42! that would mean jefbot needs to figure out how to do the “eyes thing.”
Well he’s done it before. When he combined the Red and Green.
he learned to combine his rage with control during the red/green fusion, bj42, but he hadn’t learned to actually “glow” on command. heheh.
Never underestimate a man with a broom. That’s my motto and I’m sticking to it.
ha! i was gonna give jefbot a mop but now i’m glad i went with the broom, Shift.
Yeah . . . that doesn’t work on car keys or small children, either. 😀
heheh. good to know, Sarah W! 😀
From the Angry Scarf to the Despondent Broom. Oh, how the mighty have fallen.
heh. indeed, Metaldude555. it’s a shame that broom isn’t infused with alien microbes.
Jefbot must find the Angry Scarf then energize it with Mountain Dew Code Red. Also, I can’t help but wonder if other drinks would energize it. Or if too much beer would have an adverse effect on it.
no doubt jefbot would’ve experimented with different beverages – especially alcoholic ones – if the Scarf had stuck around, Rainey! 🙂
Well I’m sure the scarf, or a certain someone with more fighting experience, will show up eventually.
let’s hope so, Fijiman. Mu can’t do all the work!
How’sabout “Here scarfy scarfy scarfy, c’mon boy, I’ve got cheetos and mt. Dew for you” it seems to work on my dog… I wonder if Musashi recognises the angry scarf or the method with which it came into existence.
it’s definitely possible “here scarfy scarfy scarfy” would’ve worked, Orzahn. jefbot should’ve at least tried that instead of shouting a summons! as for whether Mu knows about the Angry Scarf – probably not, but you never know.
I can understand why bot wouldn’t want the cleaver, but it’s relatively on the same level of the Angry Scarf. But the Scarf never actually got someone to bleed… at least externally.
true that, ROM! – in fact, the Angry Scarf is possibly way more dangerous than the cleaver, but at least bot has options with the Scarf instead of going all slicey-dicey.
Maybe drinking some soda would summon the Angry Scarf to ‘Bot?
good suggestion, JGT! it’s possible.
I know what is wrong Bot: You used wrong pose for summon.
1. Kneel, legs apart at shoulder length, right knee on ground.
2. Left hand middle finger and pointer on left temple, other fingers on left hand curled. It helps to concentrate.
3. Right hand 10 cm from ground, open palm held horizontally, with hand left foot and right knee forming triangle with all sides same length.
Now repeat summon and it will work.
Just make sure to think of Angry Scarf ONLY. Texture, feel and weight of the fabric, not previous escapades with it. Stray thought can be… disastrous.
You know what? I get the feeling it would be safer for you not to try summoning again…
It sounds like you have experience with this summoning business. Is there anything you’d like to share with us? Do you have an alien-inhabited, sentient scarf of your own Maryz?
Nah no aliens for me. After all denizens of different dimensions don’t particularly like being called alien. Spirits, fairies, demons or phantasmagoria work just fine.
And having them in fabric means binding them to it which if done forcibly pisses them off or if done by persuading them to do it willingly means making deal with said spirit. And regardless of the spirit being of the abyss or light or veil, such deal always leaves you at wrong end. All those stories about deals with devil gone bad came from this.
So the trick is knowing enough about what you are summoning to know which situation it would not object to be part of. Thank whatever deity you believe in they are usually bored out of their minds and welcome distractions. So friendly conversation is a pretty safe option.
/Interesting premise so far? I’m trying to polish a background for a story Ill probably never publish. as far as character development goes, I suck./
i’m intrigued already, Maryz – you should definitely write and publish your story, even if just for the satisfaction of creation!
if only bot had these instructions before summoning the Scarf his own way, Maryz! and i was just about to summon something of my own here, when i read the warning at the bottom of your comment; i have so many stray thoughts that it’s a good thing you put in a disclaimer. *shudder*
It was worth a shot!
he had to try, MC!
First of; so true Shift. A man with a broom is never to be underestimated. Harry potter “battled” a dragon with one ! And secondly, he can “feel it”? Oh boy, i feel a guyver moment coming up…
true that, Graypatch. i mean, bot’s broom is no Firebolt, but maybe it’s on par with Kiki’s Delivery Service? (actually, i think even that’s too much to ask.)
Maybe the scarf hooked up with Angsty Teenager
aagh! if that’s the case, bot has way more to worry about than murderous, mutant possums, Oz!
Maybe being super stressed and panicking will bring it to you. :]
let’s hope so, Dj, especially since bot might be wandering into a “super stressed and panicking” type adventure here!
Well, that went about as well as expected. 😛 I hope the Angry Scarf decides to show up of its own accord. Or that Jefbot figures out how to summon it! Although I’m not sure it was really Jefbot who was in control in the first place!
He looks so defeated and far from a super hero in that last panel. Are the 6 on Jefbot’s shirt and the apt number related at all?
heh. you bring up a good point about how much control bot really had over the Scarf, Shanna. at least at the end there (of the Super Scrawn Saga) he didn’t have much. he must learn control! well, if he ever gets the Scarf back, that is.
as for the “6” showing up on the apartment door – it doesn’t really have an exact correlation to the one on bot’s shirt, but sixes do seem to follow bot around…
Am I the only one who read “broom-fu” and thought of Rory Williams?
heh. i know there are a lotta Doctor Who fans around these parts, EdCasey143, so you might not be alone in this!
HEY HEY! I am the worst kind of scum for being away for so long. We’ve had ‘net, so I didn’t have that as an excuse. I hope you don’t send Xinda after me!
That said, I LOVE the current story-line! I can only hope that the Scarf can be found before it’s too late. They’ll need all the help they can get. OOH! Maybe a team? We’ll have to wait and see, but I’m excited!
KB! i’ve wondered where you’d wandered off to. glad to have you back!
and glad you’re lovin’ the current story, too! your excitement and enthusiasm just fuels my excitement and enthusiasm. 😀
Now if I could just channel that excitement and enthusiasm into the series I want to write. Just so you can get an idea: The world is multiversal, but the other universes are each one of the D&D settings. Each universe has a Gate to Earth that’s guarded by the creators of each setting (Ed Greenwood for Forgotten Realms/Faerun; Margaret Weis for Dragonlance/Krynn). Well, the Gates are being breached by the forces of evil and a group of Earthling Humans are recruited and given special abilities (just like the classes from D&D) to fight back by the DM. It’s kinda like a mix-up between the AD&D Cartoon, and modern Fantasy series like Buffy, Angel, Charmed, and Supernatural.
what the hell happened to the scarf?
no way to know for sure, clockworkAngel, but apparently it’s off having adventures of its own. 🙂
Maybe like all lost things, he’ll find it when he looks for something else. Inner strength, perhaps?
Or when he buys a second one.
He CAN’T buy one. Xinda made it for him, then something happened that brought it to life. Just getting a new scarf wouldn’t have the same effect. It’d just be an ordinary scarf.
heh. that’s exactly how i find lost things, Takla – once i stop looking for it, it generally (though not always) shows up. and KB’s right – bot can’t buy another one! it’s a one-of-a-kind Angry Scarf, for sure.
Is it bad if I looked through every panel just to see if the scarf was hiding in the background?
ha! your dedication to finding the Angry Scarf is commendable, GB, and i’d normally encourage it, but i can assure you – it’s not to be found, sadly.
Well darn. Where could it be then?
Definitely needs that scarf signal, definitely.
What would a scarf signal even look like…
MAYBE the scarf ran off with The Doctor? :U
the Scarf Signal might just look like a random squiggle, Ezekiel Wymahn! or maybe just a big “S” (not Superman shaped)? and it’s quite possible it jumped universes and is now on The Doctor. gods know it’s long enough. heheh.
I could very well be wearing the Scarf Signal on my nose!
Maybe its just taking the angry scarf time to get to him 😛
quite possible, Chameleon! and maybe it stopped at a bar for a drink. Mtn Dew and vodka, maybe? 🙂
I like the coloring in this strip. Although Jefbot should be careful with that backpack only halfway on. That’s tripped me up a few times and I wasn’t going into battle. Although, I do swear that gravity likes to randomly increase just to make me fall over. Awesome strip as always, I can’t wait to see what’s next!
PS, my mom has been being really cute and waiting for your updates. The last few times she’s come upstairs and told me, “Jefbot’s updated. Do you want to comment and get the shades of firsting?” and then, “Rats! Someone already got there. Maybe next time.” Mom is enjoying the comic as well, but I have yet to teach her how to comment. Gotta get on that…
i used to always do the “one shoulder strap” thing when carrying my backpack, emikae, but now i generally do the “two straps” since it’s SO much easier on my back. especially when fighting mischievous gravity fluctuations. 😉
and your comment about your mom reading the strip and notifying you of Shades opportunities is just plain cool. you both are an awesome dynamic duo, for sure!
I know where the Angry scarf is, back when the mutant first arrived it was peaking out by the boc good thing he brought back his sstuff huh?
good guess, and i know which panel you’re thinking of, but sadly, that was just a sleeve of a jacket and not the Angry Scarf we all know and love. your hypothesis would’ve made bot’s life a whoooole lot easier, though, Hides In The Dark!
I like the broom choice. Good one!
