Duh, anybody could draw God if they wanted to, he looks just like George Burns.

Conclusion: No more Jack before bedtime.


If I recall my history correctly, the Roman general who conquered Judea in the 1st century B.C. demanded to enter the Holy of Holies in the Temple in Jerusalem. After killing quite a number of priests, Levites, and other Jews who objected this blasphemy, he made his way inside and found...nothing. He wrote back to Rome expressing his amazement that the Jews worship an empty room.

I'll leave you to draw your own conclusions from that.

Maybe Striker is the new messiah.

Would you leave the greatest physical piece of your religion in such an obvious place? I can't remember for sure, but I believe that was after the Arc had already dissappeared.

If not, its possible that the Arc was buried UNDER the room. The Holy of Hollies was kept in complete darkness all the time, so it would be for the most part easy to hide the room's lack of content.

And here I thought the arc was supposed to have ground on Mt. Arrarat. :razz:

Lo and behold, a mirror! Old smudges in the shape of a word! And the lady in question taking one last look at herself. Then a shadow appears behind her.

Image Funny... that's a look of pity.

I know David's already finished this arc, so I don't think he gets his idea's from the board. :razz:

Personally I think it'll have to do something with pride/vanity, I mean, look at the way she's preening?
If it's not a sin, then who managed to get into her house? Assuming it's hers.

We've never seen pride before. The robed/shadowy figure was envy both times. It was Kane.

And, just so you know. It's spelled Cain, not Kain (the guy in the Bible) and God didn't accept his sacrifice because of Cain's pride, and Cain thought he could do it on his own works (tilling a field, keeping the crops growing, fertilizing, irrigating, gathering, then sacrificing) as compared to Abel, who only watched the sheep.

Welcome to the forum, Aar0n!

That dark figure in the reflection reminds me of Jack.

Cain/Abel... Cain sacrificed crops instead of Abel who sacrificed the traditional livestock. Abel got approval rather than Cain, so Cain did him in.......
I suppose that implies that God is a carnivore?

You're wrong about that. How can I say for certain? Kane's hand in this strip, holding the knife...

Is complete and reasonably normal looking. However, the cloaked figure that is thought to be pride had hands like this...
http://jack.keenspace.com/d/20020227.html
which are obviously emaciated and apparently decomposed in a very dribbly way.

We know Kane is envy because of how he talks about Silverblue's eyes but the cloaked figure seems more intent about talking about its own beauty and the beauty of its own home, hence pride.

What I'm sure about, is that the dark figure is definitely not Drip. Maybe it is Kane... and what the hell is 'NOMIRRAN'?!?

Could it be one of those generalised little nasties surrounding Kane? like those who torment Angry Brian when he's not having rocks thrown at him?

Those things surrounding Kane remind me of Reworks. BTW, Pride was the skinless figure (who else would you call 'cheap frat'?). Hmmm... that dark shape's forelock look like Drip's when he was alive. Then again, so does Wrath's. It's definitely not Kane and Pride has no hair, since Pride has no skin. I still think it's Jack (due to the robe-like shaped body) but I still wonder if it can be Drip in his alive form. Or Fnar? :smile:
