"Monkey Paw" -Sunday Strip- by stixman "Monkey Paw" -Sunday Strip- by stixman
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!

Okay, I thought this was funny at first but now I can't tell. Despite it's appearance, this is one of the Briefs I have spent the most time on.

Anyway, if you never heard the story of the The Monkey's Paw, I tried to explain it and then totally get you going in the wrong direction. I'm sorry, I've spent too much time on this to look at it unbiased. But I still think it's kinda funny! Which is good because usually by the time I'm done I realize how stupid it is. And it is stupid, but hey, that's just Briefs. :D

EDIT: Stupid fire. Yes, I realize it's gone.

EDIT 2: Yeah, I fixed it. :)

Monkeys are... scary. You shoulda written the story in the first place. Now THAT would have been a horrific masterpiece.

Ha, this is funny! I read that story, and I was waiting for that part, but uh..."what a tweeest!"

I'm a little sad you simplicitized your stick figures. Before they had hair and clothes and such. Now they're so much more like all the other web comics' characters. Though you did have some lighting detail, which is a plus.

Of course they're going to stay complex! It wouldn't be Briefs if they were all bald. This one, I'll admit, was a little simplistic, though. I had to spend a lot of time edititing, so believe me it was easier if they were just bald. Plus, hair in the dark is a little weird, they'd all have to be blond in able to stand out against the night. Baldness is good. As for the clothes, you never wear complex clothes while camping. Trust me, it's just easier to dress plain. :) No worries though, the next strip won't have bland figures. :thumbsup:

Wow, he scared the shit out of that fire... hehe. Honestly, though, great take on a short classic. And, I don't know what it is about the irregular eyes, but they always make me laugh.
