Tune in NEXT WEEK when we start an all new story arc and meet TEAM G. You’ll even meet Mr. G. He’s a bad mutha–SHUTYOURMOUTH!–I was just talkin’ ’bout Mr. G.

    EPIC!!! I’ve been waiting for this moment! >:D

    I love how the weapons are all household items and farm tools until you get to the guy with the spear. He’s going jungle on their behinds.

  2. DktrAgonizer

    Okay, this page rocks. Yeah, angels! =D

  3. Zzzzzap

    Wait, Madge. You -don’t- have a spear at your home? Luff dis page!

  4. Topazert

    Chainsaws a bit much should’nt it be something meaner like a angery chihuaua?

  5. Van

    You forgot the pot of boiling holy water.

    What an AMAZING birthday present, guys!

    Knowing I was RIGHT!

  7. Courtney


    @Keylaleigh: HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU AS WELL!!!!!
    You and Aletheya both guessed correct. Kudos!

  8. dale_mettam

    @Courtney – Thank ya, sir. I can’t think of a better place and a better group of people to hang out with on my birthday.

    @Keylaleigh – Nor can I think of a nicer person to share my birthday with.


  9. Aletheya

    I KNEW IT! Yayyyy!

    Happy Birthday to both of you, Dale and Keylaleigh!

  10. Bismarck

    Hay guys, how about when the ‘Angels’ are done with them, Would it be OK for me to hunt ….. er …………. “Play” with them for a while?

    Love the wrench!

  11. Ember West

    Three things here. First, love the red headed angel with the chainsaw. Second, does this mean Kevin and Conrad get better corporeal bodies?

    Third: happy birthday Dale and Keylaleigh!

  12. dale_mettam

    @Ember – 1) They ALL rock… the art team hit this one WAY outta the park. 2) Kevin and Conrad head back to the Head Office starting next week. 3) Thanks.

    @Aletheya – Thanks. 😀

  13. PinkE

    Happy Birthday, Dale and Keylaleigh!!!!

    And i agree with Ember – the redheaded angel is the bomb.

  14. Infectious Midnight

    That’s just darling. I love the red headed chicky.
    Does this mean we have to wait/won’t see Luci’s reaction to getting her imps back. I still remember her hiding in the closet. I still feel bad for Luci cause she doesn’t know she’s rid of them yet.
    Happy Birthday to all applicable residents here as well.

  15. LydaLynn

    @dale – Happy Birthday! I’m posting your present in IMPosters.

    @keylaleigh – Happy Birthday to you too! I have no idea what to make you – but if you can think of something – let me know!

  16. dale_mettam

    Thanks for the birthday wishes. You guys rock! 😀

  17. dale_mettam

    Following Ember’s suggestion that we go for making next month IMPril, we’ve put set a new page above. EXTRAS will have some EXTRA (it’s not just a catchy title) goodies for all who want it.

  18. Ember West

    Sometimes ennui results in good ideas, especially spring break ennui. I’m happy you liked my idea! 😀

  19. Becky

    That is awesomeness! Heh heh heh. I do agree, I would like to see the aftermath when these guys get back to hell. ^.^

  20. MagicalMadge

    Happy Birthday Dale! I hope no silly imps crash your party :)

  21. dale_mettam

    Thanks, MM. Though I think it might be too late to prevent an Imp-attack!

  22. isaac

    Happy Birthday Dale. Love this strip, btw.

  23. Sicarius

    Happy birthday Dale and Keylaleigh!!! ^^ *dances*

  24. dale_mettam

    Thanks Isaac and Sicarius. I’m in the mood to celebrate…. go help yourselves to a pic in the extra section… or don’t… your call. 😀

  25. Filthy Pazuzu

    But wait! Aren’t ‘The ODs’ (Original Demons) gonna get in trouble? You just know ‘The Replacements’ are gonna squeal.
    Only if they overcome the oncoming angelic onslaught.
    But how will ‘The ODs’ explain their reassumption of their roles as Luci Phurr’s Imps?
    Guess we’ll just have to wait.
    This arc was excellent, team. Truly fantastic.
    Keep up the most excellent work.

  26. Comichero

    Hapyuy brithday to you Dale and Keylaleigh!!! ihope you two have a super awesome dayi can only wish that i lived closer to you bothso we could go out and bar hop through out the night

    and Im in full agreement with Ember the red head angel with the chain saw is awesome and I might actualy ask her out at the next heaven hell mixer, but Id like to point out to madge that what yoru assumeing is a pitch fork is actualy a trident you can tell by the thick tines

  27. Aletheya

    I love the Extras! 😀

    But… I’d love them even more if I could get a picture of the bottle! :p

  28. Ember West

    I think the art team deserves a cookie for a good job. Oh and hey, angel rainbow.

  29. keylaleigh

    You guys are so sweet!

  30. Zarvain

    Awesome comic today, and happy birthday you two! =)
    heh Chainsaws, :)

  31. Ragedoll

    I LOVE their faces!!!! :) This is one of my favourites so far!! :)

  32. Bat-Snake

    Gargoyles reference FTW!

  33. Blue Sapphire


  34. DktrAgonizer

    @Keylaleigh: Happy birthday! =D

    @Dale: Happy birthday to you as well! And this is perfect timing, as I’ve just finished my first LPI fanart. Have some Alisdair!

  35. dale_mettam

    Thanks DA.

  36. jjmblue7

    Super Angelic Rainbow Attack time!

  37. Chessi

    It’s official. This is now my favourite webcomic. I thought Sinfest and No Pink Ponies and Geminni were good, but they have nothing on you. The dialogue, the images, the comments. Absolutely fantastic. And I love the colour splashes. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a comic with so many colours in a single panel that still looks good. Let alone amazing. Kudos to you.

  38. dale_mettam

    @Chessi – Thanks for the compliment. Glad you’re enjoying the strip.

  39. Courtney

    @Chessi: Thanks so much for the kind words!! So glad you’re enjoying the webcomic!!!

  40. Masterwolf181

    So. I have my girlfriend read these comics when I am around to make her smile. Do you think you could put up like a birthday banner or something on Impril 2nd for her birthday? Her name is Stephanie and she is the love of my life and mother of my child and she deserves something special. I figured it couldn’t hurt to ask so yeah. been reading this comic since the beginning. always good for a smile. keep up the great work.

  41. Krahazik

    hoooraah, just what they deserve

  42. Secret Agent 000

    What a good example of the trope “chainsaw good”.

  43. Jak

    It’s funny, because they all look like Angels, except for our two buddies at the front/bottom.
