701 | Three Spirits

Knock knock.

Who’s there?

Interrupting Zap.

Interrupting Zap who?

Interrupting Zap so now you don’t get to hear the story of the three spirits.



  • Mike

    Perhaps we could hear the story in a bonus comic? Or is this a convenient way of hinting at great depth whilst not needing to actually write it? I’m on to you…

  • joblow

    Dem booties. And Zap’s too I guess…

  • Psiberkiwi

    Then again, the whole story could be a take on the classic Noodle Incident

  • boxesofboxes

    He’s the TIGER! I KNEW Efrem had an animal! Also it makes sense, because of Zap being in the Tiger cart from the roller coasters, seeing as Efrem was the one who led him to Reona.

  • safyrejet

    I had the idea of tiger being Efrem’s animal too. I just can’t recall why…Oh well. Hey we we’re right. :)

  • safyrejet

    Darn it. I wanted to hear the end of William’s story.
    Wait, this means if Vitale told them that story, the trio of lost ones personally interacted with Vitale at some point.

    Campfire! Someone break out the marshmallows. It’s s’mores time.

  • holykittensbatman

    “But I never liked the way it ended.”

    I don’t like the way you said that, Zap.
    I don’t like the way it’s making my head spin nope nope nope done.

  • Speedy Marsh

    Would someone post a picture of the three psychics’ tatoos? It sounds like they’re about to be explained.

  • Speedy Marsh

    If the story isn’t told now, maybe it’ll be told in an epilogue, when Zap and Reona are telling it to their kids.

    What will their kids’ hair look like?!?

  • Well if you’re not going to finish that tale, at least break out the smores. :D

  • mirrim

    Here’s a link to “Tattoos for Two”: http://www.zapcomic.com/2003/12/20040709/
    And for the tiger…I think I saw something on twitter/tumblr a.k.a. spoiler land. : )

  • safyrejet

    I’m picturing a boy with pointy towering hair up front AND space horn sideburns. A girl will inexplicably have perfectly normal gravity obeying hair with the exception of one tuft sticking up at the back of her head like the duo of sticky outie spikes on Zap’s head.

    You know I never realized it, but Zap’s got his own built in rabbit ears back there. ^_^

  • Speedy Marsh
  • Should tag with spoilers. His tattoo will be revealed in the finale.

  • Speedy Marsh

    Oops. Sorry. Spoiler alert added. I forgot we hadn’t seen it before. Luckily the “see more” cuts off the image above the tattoo. BTW, I like the shape that his tattoo is posed in. It reinforces its meaning.

    This summer is gonna drive me crazy! I can’t wait to see the finale, but at the same time, I don’t want it to end. I bet it drives y’all bonkers, not being able to talk about it.

  • I’ve almost drawn the whole thing! I have between 12 and 15 pages left, depending on how I handle some scenes.

    It’s pretty crazy. :x

  • Crestlinger

    So if Gunner goes instead to confirm nothing is salvageable of the Dadelus then they’re kinda screwed.

  • UltimateLemon

    Gunner was the one who “spoke” to the masses and got his army. Zap was the one who “saw” the different futures and made his plans. Efrem was the one brave enough to escape.

  • safyrejet

    Wait, it just hit me. That’s why Efrem had to be psychic stabbed in the arms, so you’d have a convenient excuse to wrap his arms in bandages and hide his tattoo for the big finale. ;)

  • SSSSssshhhhh!!!!!


  • Speedy Marsh

    Oh no! It looks like Zap did such a good job interrupting, that we don’t get a Thursday update.

    Making us wait till Monday for an update? And I thought Gunner was evil.

    Pascalle is probably holding on to the next update, saying, “My Preciousss”

  • I’m sitting on the next 40 updates saying “my precious”

  • Speedy Marsh


    You know your hair will start to fall out, and you’ll start to shrivel up and hunch over, if you hang on to your precious for too long.

    If you only post one update a week, then it’ll be a year before the story is over. Or, were you including the 12-15 pages that you haven’t done yet?

    We’ve got another SOPA issue coming down the pipes! Spread the word, Especially if in America. Actual video at ‘Read the rest of this entry’. Fcc links at bottom:
