Calling upon ThothThe Egyptian god of the moon and wisdom, Thoth is the patron
deity of scribes and of knowledge, including scientific,
medical and mathematical writing, and is said to have given
mankind the art of hieroglyphic writing. He is important as
a mediator and counsellor amongst the gods and is the scribe
of the Heliopolis Ennead pantheon. According to mythology,
he was born from the head of the god Seth. He may be
depicted in human form with the head of an ibis, wholly as an
ibis, or as a seated baboon sometimes with its torso covered
in feathers. His attributes include a crown which consists
of a crescent moon surmounted by a moon disc.
Thoth is generally regarded as a benign deity. He is also
scrupulously fair and is responsible not only for entering
in the record the souls who pass to afterlife, but of
adjudicating in the Hall of the Two Truths. The Pyramid
Texts reveal a violent side of his nature by which he
decapitates the adversaries of truth and wrenches out their
hearts.

Alternate ending: Dudley reads a blessed scrollAnd I was gazing on the surges prone,
With many a scalding tear and many a groan,
When at my feet emerg'd an old man's hand,
Grasping this scroll, and this same slender wand.
I knelt with pain--reached out my hand--had grasp'd
Those treasures--touch'd the knuckles--they unclasp'd--
I caught a finger: but the downward weight
O'erpowered me--it sank. Then 'gan abate
The storm, and through chill aguish gloom outburst
The comfortable sun. I was athirst
To search the book, and in the warming air
Parted its dripping leaves with eager care.
Strange matters did it treat of, and drew on
My soul page after page, till well-nigh won
Into forgetfulness; when, stupefied,
I read these words, and read again, and tried
My eyes against the heavens, and read again.

Please note that this is the ice trollThe troll shambled closer. He was perhaps eight feet tall,
perhaps more. His forward stoop, with arms dangling past
thick claw-footed legs to the ground, made it hard to tell.
The hairless green skin moved upon his body. His head was a
gash of a mouth, a yard-long nose, and two eyes which drank
the feeble torchlight and never gave back a gleam.
[...]
Like a huge green spider, the troll's severed hand ran on its
fingers. Across the mounded floor, up onto a log with one
taloned forefinger to hook it over the bark, down again it
scrambled, until it found the cut wrist. And there it grew
fast. The troll's smashed head seethed and knit together.
He clambered back on his feet and grinned at them. The
waning faggot cast red light over his fangs.

version, not the jabberwock"Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!"

He took his vorpal sword in hand;
Long time the manxome foe he sought --
So rested he by the Tumtum tree,
And stood awhile in thought.

And, as in uffish thought he stood,
The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
And burbled as it came!

One, two! One, two! And through and through
The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
He went galumphing back.

zombieThe zombi... is a soulless human corpse, still dead, but
taken from the grave and endowed by sorcery with a
mechanical semblance of life, -- it is a dead body which is
made to walk and act and move as if it were alive.

Slandor: Sexual content, violence, and pop-up ads?

Sounds like Arson, Murder, and Jaywalking.

Really? I'd say the pop-ups are the worst.

It's not dead, just nobody has submitted anything lately. And I've been too busy to write any comics myself. :/
