Objects in Bottle are Larger than they Appear.

Objects in Bottle are Larger than they Appear.

Footnote: Not that there’s going to be a quiz anytime soon about Modern Interplanetary Religion, but…

Believe it or not, Scout Aeblis (our purple bunny friend there) isn’t a Christian, but a Pangean.

To best explain the difference, if Christianity’s Bible is Judaism’s Tanach with a few extra volumes tacked on, the Pangean Record is the Tanach, Christian Bible, Koran, a pinch of the Book of Mormon, and at least two other books written on different planets all strung together, put through three translations, run through a shredder, pasted back together in the order that made the most sense… and only then made it to the Editing department, but not before Legal got its claws into it.

The Pangean Record is, in short, the most politically correct religious document in the galaxy, documenting the tales of a planet dubbed Pangea where every known and recognized sentient species* lives together and ends up acting out several biblical tales, with interference being run not by any recognizable species, but by supernatural points of light meant to be stand-ins for angels and demons.  Each tale is starred by a duo of biblical characters, even if said pairing never existed in the original documents — Jesus and Magdalene er, Maggie, in this case, have been transformed into an Anyr and a Kendril acting out a poor man’s rendition of Romeo and Juliet.

If you think THAT was a bad adaptation, you should go read the Pangean version of Sodom and Gomorrah. If you don’t have time for the full story, just skip ahead to the part where Sodom and Gomorrah end up in the strip club.

*Footnote to the Footnote: Adharia’s species (not to mention that of her new horned friend) are not currently included in the Pangean Record, and won’t be until their planet (and species) are officially recognized. This is a blessing in disguise, since there’s always a minor holy war whenever the Pangea Corporation has to come out with a new edition of the gospel.

    Wow… ok, I see why that bauble was so expensive now.

    Nice work!

  2. Xavier_Price

    Okay, wow. Head-shot turned into God-shot. or perhaps… “GOD LIKE!”

    Also, the coloration for her is like a living paintball splatter.

  3. Tytaj

    It’s a summoning bullet! 0_o

  4. TheRippyOne

    first of all, she/he/it is rocking.

    secondly, golden undies? flowing purple body wraps? Art deco fur/sin paint? Me thinks this bullet’s power comes from its excellent micro-storage wardrobe! What ethereal being with nigh unlimited cosmic powers wouldn’t show up for exception fashion opportunities?*

    Great shot, I can see the image of just the summoned guardian(?) making a great wallpaper or print.

    Brilliant pose, love the contempt and anger in those eyes- and the “oh shit” from the others. Well at least they’ll be getting what was coming to them.

  6. Cat

    …well, damn. Not good for the scouts.

  7. pilli10

    didn’t think it would be that big…

  8. Zephyrion

    Did the corpse disappear?

  9. Cy Reb, Jr.

    That’s an awesome… being…
    Wait, does “Maggie” refer to Mother Mary or Mary Magdalene?

  10. Tom Redlion

    That was,… unexpected.
    Very pretty. We already had a purple cattaur. Now, an angry-looking goattaur.

    @Cy: Just added a footnote that should answer your question, as well as a few you didn’t even want the answer to. :-p

  12. Janus

    How very… dashing. And angry looking. Love the mix of blue on purple and of course, the glowing eyes of “you’re in deep crap now, kiddies”.

  13. RavingRendal

    first off, that is pretty 🙂

    secondly, that footnote is just awesome, I’ll have to find a way to send that to people.

  14. helios

    ah ha hmm… can I take this to mean I was right about the globe thing containing an efreet? Lets see, black and funky eyes, check. Strange colour of the body fur/skin/hide, check. Appears to fit the description for the ‘dead inside’ yes? With the ‘wingies’ having such a problem with the ‘insides’ I wonder what the show sponsor will do now.

  15. Elliotd

    Thats the koolest thing I’ve seen all day. Very beautifully colored too, i know someones going to be shitting bricks, if they haven’t already!.

  16. Gadora


  17. Lycanthrope

    I do believe…that that is the most gorgeous single panel in the entire history of the strip to date. Bravo.

  18. Xavier_Price

    Pangeon, I get it. Something similar to the ‘Wayists’ from the show “Andromeda”. They’ve basically taken all major religions from most major civilizations and combined them into one, all-consuming religion about a greater being. Most of the religious figures in those religions have become saints or profits [including “saint” Jesus]. Kind of a cool. Also makes sense, what with Christianity being earth-based. Not saying there wouldn’t be similar religions on other planets, but they’d have different names and stories.

    I love the effort you put into the background of the universe and characters here. And the art’s pretty, to boot! =^.^=

  19. EvilSupahFly

    The art is, as usual, exquisit, and the footnote is very enlightening, but I too am curious to know where the corpse went, and what exactly that is (other than Death on four legs). Is it a Guardian? A Summons? Angel? Demon? Demi-God? Ye Olde Satyr of Holy Execution And Vengeance?

  20. BiggerJ

    I’ve just realized something about Pangeanism. It is the most incorrect religion that could ever possible be devised by sentient beings. We have discovered the One False Religion.

  21. Xavier_Price

    I predict this religion thing could spark a big problem.

    Just remember guys! It’s fantasy. FANTASY! [means not-real]

  22. Reyos

    hmm just a little observation, but weren’t the cameras supposed to be blue when they were on TV?

  23. Sulucamas

    That’s a really nice touch that Sedja’s golden fingers correspond to the same golden digits on her/his/its hooves.

  24. Keiya

    What, they didn’t scribble a disclaimer into their holy text?

  25. SuperSEGAFan

    I just now realized that if you take a closer look at Scout Arael, you can see her Touched wings showing through her coat.

  26. Emma

    I laughed so hard at your descripiton of Pangeanism

  27. Shadowsamurai

    Whyd does the Pangean Records sound like it came from the Hitchikers guide?
