Strange Brew by AK-Is-Harmless Strange Brew by AK-Is-Harmless
Originally, last week’s comic was going to contain both the witches AND the results of their potion, but the idea was too long to put into a single strip. So I split it up. Also, I have no idea why I decided to draw a kitten in Winslow’s pants. It just felt like the right thing to do, you know? Winslow likes cats, so I don’t think he really minds.

This strip was another opportunity to do some weird facial expressions, which is always fun. :)

This is the third of five Halloween-themed strips I’m doing this year. Enjoy!

This first appeared on Defenestration [link] on Friday, October 12th.

I see at least -three- new Winslow avatar faces to change into. XD

The eyes and expression in the second panel made me bust out laughing.
Very nice, A.K. XD

The flies are far, far less significant than that creepy trouser-cat.

Probably. But we need to deal with one problem at a time, man, and you know Winslow can't prioritize! :)

Winslow's face in the bottom right panel is hilarious :XD:

At least the kitten is asleep. I've learnt that they can do all sorts of nasty, claw-related things while they're awake.

Being flybait means that he gets a lot of buzz.

Wonder if the flies are female?

Looks great.

Him and Gargamel from the Smurfs movie have something in common...they are the lords of the flies. Ironically that was one of my riffs on the movie too, and it nearly killed my blind friend laughing.XD

...and why do I feel thirsty for Canadian Beer, and have to go to the brewery because the "rat in the bottle" trick for free beer didn't work at the local beer store because I spent all my parent's beer money on dissatisfied movie goers? hmmm?XD
