The IMPire Strikes Back #14

And you know Pain didn’t jump with any intent of landing safely… in fact I don’t think the landing part was even a passing consideration.

    Checkmate. My mate, Ed. Edwin Hubble. Hubble Telescope. I don’t need one to see what’s going to happen.

    Pancakes.

    I’ve never been daring enough to jump from a swing set like that. Or really, I should say that I’ve never been stupid enough. =P

    @ DktrAgonizer: I have…the landing bit…no, seriously, I actually ended up with a mouthful of sand..

  4. LydaLynn

    Please – he’s planning on having someone nice and soft to land on – he likes pain – but is happier when it’s someone else who’s suffering.

  5. Sicarius

    …well, it is true you know…it’s always funnier when it’s happening to somebody else…*cackles* ^^

  6. Aletheya

    I absolutely LOVE to jump from the swings like Pain did! 😀
    Of course, I always make sure my daddy or one of my brothers is be available as a pillow.

    will be*

    I STILL say he’s more teal to me D<

    PLUSHIES – OK, here is the deal as is. While we want to have some, as yet, we can’t make some. This leaves us a couple of options.

    1 – The reason we can’t do it NOW is that we need more readers so we can convince the folks who would initially fund the plushies being made to… well… fund the plushies being made. So if you want official LPI Plushies, help us spread the word about the strip.

    2 – Unofficial plushies that might be made by readers. As long as you aren’t doing that and selling the plushies, it’s all cool… kinda like 3D fan art. And we loves us the fan art. To send us pictures of stuff like that, use the CONTACT PAGE and send us your email address. We’ll send you details of where you can send pictures and then we’ll post them here on the site. And that goes for ANY kinda fan art… or photos of Exploding Attack Hamsters by the name of Fang and Norbert Willikins-Monkhouse III, too.

    @Dale
    Of course I wouldn’t sell them! I just make them to make them. :-)

    Pain reminds me of all those blissful times in childhood that I hurt myself jumping off the swing…darn you Pain…darn you.

    You know Misfortune got two of them in the bottle he must really want to get back to Luci and who can blame him shes a cute bundle of potential evil, but more importantly you Ignorance her isnt all that green he’s more of a grayish color with and off white belly

    And you know i think pain is going for a double flip dismount on that one

  12. dale_mettam

    GREEN – A while ago Kiriel addressed the specific shade of green on our friend Ignorance. It was left hanging, but I figured I should address it. Have you seen those politicos who rage on about how terrible X, Y and Z are? And then they get busted for doing one, two or all of those things?

    OOOW! Better example… that dude from Austria who whipped Germany into a frenzy with his dark hair, rattling on about how German blondies were way superior?

    If Ignorance was like Kermit-green, that subtle dimension Tracy layered in would be lost.

    And THAT is what’s so awesome about the art team you have working for you here.

    I got my book! YAYYYYYYY!!! *does a happy/gimpy wheelchair dance of glee*

    @PinkE – HUZZAR!

    Also, I think the packing bubblewrap used may be a hellish creation – it looks like normal bubblewrap, hence makes you want to pop it, but feels HORRID. It’s got a gross tacky feeling to it kind of like the sticky part of post-it notes.

  16. Kiriel

    Awwwh D: I wish I had one fo the books and I would SO buy a p,lush.. but this paycheck I am officially broke from my eye exam + contacts and a used fallout 3 game 8D

  17. MagicalMadge

    I’ll get my book when my paycheck comes in at the end of the month. Got to love being a broke college kid who gets paid min. wage… XP
    I’ll probably get the material to make Tears then too. I’m really excited about making the little guys! 😀

  18. Ember West

    I wouldn’t be surprised to see that Pain landed on a small child. Also…in my opinion, orange is the best color in the universe! And yes, that does involve Hell.

  19. jjmblue7

    Is it weird that the last panel makes me want to hug Pain & Tears?

    @ swingset posts: Not only did we jump from swings, my brother, sister and I used to be so dumb we’d jump 12 or so feet off the back porch and land on nothing but a thin blanket, thinking it would cushion us…for fun…I’m beginning to think our babysitter was being influenced by a certain red imp.

    Yay swinging!
