Could be the mouth and front claw tips of a large xenomorph.

The size (or position) and shape don't seem to match anything we'd expect. Battle mech? Houndmolpy pack leaping three cues high?

Or, the edge of a title banner that's about to slide across the frame, reading "Meanwhile, back at the beach..."

hey has ne1 noticed the weird javascritp ???!???




But really, I have been lurking since the OTT pagecount was in the single digits. The reason I delurked (and registered!)? Because when I saw NP 2228 (with raptorcattack) I actually yelled "WAAH!" out loud.

And super-sadly now I must coma, and I'll be at a reunion this whole wip! Bah!

Wowzer, catmolpy attack continues! It's definitely quite a horrific attack. It's kind of in slow motion at this point, and it looks like the kitty is ferociously clawing and biting at the pack on Cue's back. Meanwhile Meg looks around for anything she can do and finds a stick that she picks up intending to whack the kitty.

I do think they'll both survive, but Cue will definitely be injured. I suspect they hole up in the bunker here to recover and it will fade/flash back to the beach and LaPetite for a while.

I have no idea what's on the right of the screen though... mustard? A swipe to another scene maybe?

Edit: Yay! I am now the Supreme Emperor! I command... wait... wait for it... I want to see what happens next pix before I go making commands...

...Oh my, what developments. I demand predictions regarding the rightmost image. Is it mustard? Is it a scene swipe? Is it an alien object? Tech? What??? Declare your allegiances!

I think this is definite proof that the catmolpy was attacking and not just saying hi.

Also, now we have a "THWAP!" in our litany. I kind of hope someone will get together a congregation and go through it at some point.

I wondered if we'd see Megan put the smackdown on the molpcat this newpix or next, and I'm glad it was this one... even though we're supposed to wait for it.

Hello all. Been skimming the forum since day 1, not blitzing (which I think means actually reading every post). I know, I'm not really part of the community, but at least I'm enjoying the show!

That thing on the right is driving me mad! Maybe the upper part is the barrel of a tank cannon? Maybe Tank Girl is coming to the rescue? Somehow I doubt it.

Oh, and I'll brag. I'm 30,000+ feet in the air, using in-flight WIFI. I would love to claim that I'm doing it just because I need to see the next pic, but alas work is what really forced me to shell out the money. I don't remember exactly when I started it going; I hope my 3-hour window includes one more pic. :-)

Whatever it is, it's coming down a slope; the upper and lower portions are descending at the same rate.

I've got it! I suggested before that they were at a closed ski lodge; somebody above saw them in trouble and is riding the lift down to help them! The last pole must be just out of frame. (But I don't know why they're wearing skis.)

To tell the truth, I'm a little relieved it was mustard─that thing was a little too molpy ex machina to suit me. I'm used to Megball handling things on their own.

(But I still predict a new chapter by Monxip.)

ETA: But notice how quickly it was found and cleaned up. Within a newpix and a quarter, the errors were spotted and the mustardmolpy was sanctioned. That's the second time mustard has been fixed in fairly short order. Either Randall is paying very close attention to the comic (which seems unlikely, since the ONGs are obviously automated), or he's got an ear in this thread.
