Yes, he forgot his gun when he climbed out there. Look, he was busy thinking of something cool to say in panel 3, okay?

11 days left on the Kickstarter, and we’re closing in on the last stretchgoal!
Please check out the Widdershins Vol 5 Kickstarter project, which you can find here:

  • … it involves falling in another large body of water, doesn’t it?

    • Well, if the vardo floats that’ll work . . .

    • Sanjay Merchant

      The Life Acquatic with Henry Barber?

  • LSKollt

    Nawww, it was just safer for him to climb out without his hands encumbered ;) He practiced proper vardo-parkour safety.

    • Sgt. Howard

      Given the nature of a ‘safety’ in that day and age, he did exactly what I would have recommended. ‘Half-cock?’ PULEEEZE!!! At best it is a conveniance, not to be trusted. Do your gymnastics, THEN handle the gun!

  • Sanjay Merchant

    Is it customary for people to be forcibly expelled from moving vardos in England? These people seem remarkably unfazed by it.

    • Disloyal Subject

      Well, they are looking, but would you want to get involved in that?

    • Darth Fez

      They’re British. It would be unseemly to appear fazed unless such shenanigans interrupted tea.

      • Columbine

        Do we think it comes under the broad heading of ‘Not Cricket’?

      • Euodiachloris

        Depends on where you are and which class is involved…

        • Columbine

          The unofficial motto of Newcastle? ‘Come and have a go if you think you’re hard enough’. The official motto of Newcastle? Translated from Latin it means ‘We triumph by brave defense.’ Which uh….has been theorised to basically be ‘come and have a go if you think you’re hard enough’ in posher language.

          • Euodiachloris

            “Ho’way the lads” — meaning broadly “go get them, boys”. ;)

            • Columbine

              That used to be spray painted on the underside of one of the bridges so you’d see it going into the toon from the south.

    • Looks like another bunch of drunken gypsies. Best not to get involved…

      • Unless getting involved with drunken gypsies happens to be your idea of fun.

  • robert袋蟻食skitch

    That dog seems inordinately happy to see people getting thrown into the middle of the street…

    • MoeLane

      They might have treats in their pockets, which might fall out, and any treat found on the street is the dog’s. This is the LAW. It’s in the Magna Carta somewhere.

      • tali

        :D It might as well be

      • The Magna Carta really only pertains to the rights of the nobility, not the common folk, but any foodstuffs that hit the ground are automatically fair game for anyone!

        • JWLM

          And the dog is evidently nobility.

          Now that you mention it, that’s reasonable — so many nobles are dogs that many dogs must be noble.

  • Darth Fez

    Good news: Invi has it comfy on top of Superbia.
    Bad news: Avaritia got tossed under Superbia.
    Good news: They remembered to leave Invi her hat.

    Oblig (even if the vardo doesn’t have one right now): “And stay off my lawn!”

    • tali

      Well, they shouldn’t complain, Invi and Superbia got a nice, free beauty sleep.

  • Columbine

    Damn I love this comic.

    Holding off on the kickstarter until the 28th as reward/commiserations.

  • D. Schwartz

    That’s a fabulous hat. You should have kept it.

    • Darkoneko Hellsing

      She’s hunt you to the end of the world, for that hat.

      is it worth it ? Is it worth a lifetime of running from the Wrath of… wait, she’s not wrath :D

    • Ms Holt should definitely have kept the hat. A hat is a badge of honour! A trophy that must be plucked from off the head of a worthy enemy!

      • D. Schwartz

        Exactly good sir/madame. Iz nize hat.

        • …und it vud look zo much better on Mizz Holt dan on Mizz Invidia…

          • D. Schwartz

            Iz gud point. Ze aezthetiks of white on white are zo blaze.

  • Darkoneko Hellsing

    “I’m not sure the horse would like height, on the other hand”

    • Maybe it’s an ex-circus horse that used to do diving stunts!

      • Darkoneko Hellsing

        Avarice got the horse, it gotta be the cheapest and most cowardesque horse out there.

  • Lily

    You know it’s a good comic when people read it till mid-morning and are heartbroken when there are no more pages to read. Like me right now.

  • Michael Brewer

    Henry, please don’t drive her house of a cliff. Not even if there’s water at the bottom.

    • RLB

      *Falsetto:* “We’re driving in the air…”

      A flying vardo, now there’s something you don’t see every day.

  • Jordan Hiller

    If the Gluttony guy had come along as well, I don’t think this would have turned out so well.

    • Unless he was distracted by a turnip!

      • Jordan Hiller

        Possibly, but it appears that he (or at least the spirit of Gluttony) may have more refined tastes.

    • Apvogt

      I don’t think he could fit in the vardo.

  • Shee Soon Theng

    “Yes, he forgot his gun when he climbed out there. Look, he was busy thinking of something cool to say in panel 3, okay?”
    Glad to have my previous observation addressed! ^^

  • Thomas

    I haven’t read this in a while, and it’s been fun to catch up. It’s all just so good!

  • …and there’s sin-specific insult number 3! Got something for free from Greed. ;)
