I decided to have a little and try to draw the phantom going by Hookbill’s how too, and I would like to see what he thinks of it. So, here it is.

Btw, I really like the smaug with guitar pic, cracks me up.

Good works, Beleg. Maybe The Phantom's evil* twin 'Motnahp' will make an appearance at some point.

This is Neila, the most careful woman in the world. Nobody knows how she is related to Alien, but there must be a connection. Some propose that she is Alien's mother, others say that she is Alien's sister and some even dare say that she is Alien's girlfriend. But who is she really? I don't know if we shall ever know.



(Phantom and Alien fanpics seem to be popular nowadays.)

PS: Is this the right way to insert a picture?

Looks like Phantom and Alien at the Cracks of Doom
And because Phantom refuses to throw the ring in the fire, Alien has no other choice but to throw Phantom in it together with the ring
Mrs. Alien comes along however in time to save Phantom, and unfortunately the Ring as well

I figured that Alien was just fishing for ladies. He's certainly using effective bait.

I like the fact that not even Alien himself knows.

Is it just me, or has The Phantom and Alien become more popular than the actual Newspaper?

Considering the last cartoon, I am pretty sure that they're related because they both seem to have about the same IQ
I find it funny that since she has no hands, she has to hold her purse in her mouth
but this raises a question...if Alien is capable to reel Mormegil in...does his race have or not have hands?
guess we have our first P&A lore questions

You mean like "do balrogs have wings" - "do the Aliens have arms"?
Well, since the fishing rod seems just floating in the air, then...

And yeah - I think the cartoon seems to be getting more popular, but nah, I don't think it would be so bad that it'd press the newspaper itself away...

P.S. Hookbill, you said the Phantom seems happy... does the eyeal expression (something like facial expression, but since all we can see from his face are the eyes...) somehow indicate his mood? So far I noticed the three grimases... er... eyemasses
These are: OO or DD or OD
if you catch my meaning (he has the second one on the pic with Mrs.Alien)

well...and even if the cartoon gets more popular, it might increase the newspaper's popularity

poor Phantom, I can't recall ever seeing him happy...perhaps he was before he met alien

Interesting part about Sauron though I always thought he would not be that type of guy

Ah ha! He was! Back in Episode 14, he was pleased that he had put down his expensive new carpet.

Ring

I did forget about that, still his happiness was quickly ruined...
I wonder why he doesn't kick Alien out of the house...maybe pity or fear?
Though if he's dead I doubt he has much to fear...

Still, just like Frodo and Gollum, maybe Phantom will one day be happy that he kept Alien...then again he might not

The general rule is that Alien keeps breaking into the Phantom's house and eventually Phantom accepted it as an inevitability. He tried to kill Alien once, but it didn't work.

yep, I guess Alien starts to come in his house as soon as episode 2
and yep, it's in episode 11 that Phantom tries to kill him...I wonder if Death could have more success against Alien

btw, you did forget one pic of Phantom's eyes
in the first episode where he meets Death he has some strange yellow/purple eyes...perhaps it's the alcohol, though I'm not sure if that has an effect on the dead

No, that's just his behavior. He's silly, he's funny, and kinda stupid (hope he didn't hear me... ops!), but he's definitely not evil!

Once again, great comic strip, Hookbill!

Yeah, that's quite possible... um... and we also don't know what happened to Morsul the Dark (Morsul? )...

Oh he's not evil... well... not completely.
It's probably best not to try and figure out his motivation as its just a stupid comic strip where weird stuff happens...

On the question of Alien's arms / hands. I generally work with the idea that he is like Homestarrunner in that his arms are invisible but still functional.

This weeks issue includes a special report on the Ultimate weapon...

I doubt it can be Morsul, since he is already dead

But, it could be Lalwende, since Alien might have felt threatened by her investigating the case
Strange though he would use acid, I thought his method was simply eating things, like Phantom's pets or Damrod...

btw Hookbill, I guess you were right about the comic becoming more interesting

Hurrah! It's back! Incidentally, I often think that episode of 'Who would make for a nice comparison with what happens to Morgoth but hardly anyone will have seen it apart from us Brits and Canucks.
