Shaenon: A few final sketches doodled during the "Big Bad Wolves" arc.

Okay, that got away from "Big Bad Wolves" pretty quickly. Whaddya want, I got bored drawing dogs and snow all the time. Now we're on to a new storyline with fewer dogs and more babes. Yes!

Channing: I think that "Dead Dogs / Big Bad Wolves" was something of a watershed moment in my development as a webcomic author. This entire arc was the first complete storyline I came up with when Shaenon first pitched "Skin Horse" to me (over two years ago!) and at the time I really had no idea exactly how long it would take to play out a moderately complicated plot in four-panel-a-day format. The answer, I soon learned, was "one giant freaking hell of a long time". Unfortunately, it was not a realization I came to before actually, y'know, going live with the story, and by then it was too late to turn back and retain any semblance of uniformity or continuity. I tried my best to leave a number of nonessential scenes and concepts on the cutting room floor; Sweetheart's flashback reverie, for instance, was originally going to be an entire arc in and of itself, presenting more of her history with the pack and the Captain for "live" viewing, and the story is stronger for its absence.

Even so, this was a damn long storyline, with far too many dogs for anyone's comfort. My thanks to the poor Cartoonist for her patience as I slowly learn how to do this thing I'm doing.

Shaenon: As usual, Jeff is far too hard on himself. Although this storyline contained many things that were difficult to draw (most of them dogs), I think it ended up being a fine story.

(TUNE: "Only You", The Platters)

Conquest Ho!
It's time to sally forth!
Conquest Ho!
Rampage from south to north!
As I spread a trail of woe
Where'er I hap to go,
To the sky I shout, and cry out "Conquest Ho!"

Conquest Ho!
My voice reverberates!
Conquest Ho!
You must accept your fates!
Crushed beneath my tread,
You'll soon be dead!
A vanquished fallen foe!
I say "Cheerio,
Huzzah, and Conquest Ho!"

So It Begins (soitbegins) says: "Conquest Ho!"

I like it.
Benjamin Whetham (crosshair) says: I like the idea of Moustachio being able to get around and take a more active role in the strip. His character is just so unique. I was laughing good at the last pic.
Sam Daniel (samhdaniel) says:   Moustachio, of course, would need a minion to follow him around and wind him up once a day.... Perhaps the minion could ride on a little trailer that Moustachio could tow behind him.
Dave Corbett (mr_dave) says: @samhdaniel: I'm suddenly wondering if the Misfit Toys have met Moustachio yet?
Rob (rrreed) says: I wonder what Moustachio's first impression of an M1 Abrams tank would be, especially if it met him muzzle-first. After all, he missed the '70's; the time during which that tank was developed…
M. Alan Thomas II (crazydreamer) says:

Conquest Ho!

It would depend on his mood, but I think that Moustachio the Thinkonium would view the M1 Abrams as a quaint attempt to replicate something as fearsome as himself. It might have a bigger gun, but it's not nearly as smart.

I really want someone to attack the Annex. Not only would we get to see the various groups inhabiting it fighting off the attackers, but when it's all over and Tip finally approaches Moustachio, he can discover that Moustachio has somehow defeated vast numbers of enemies and laid waste to everything in sight without Tip having the slightest clue how. That's my fantasy, anyway.

Rob (rrreed) says: Sure, the tank isn't as smart as Moustachio, but the four solders inside it might beg to differ!
N B (daveclone7) says: Methinks "Conquest Ho" begs to be a T-shirt ...
M. Alan Thomas II (crazydreamer) says: Ooh, yeah, t-shirt!
