    Really I would have gone with the blue…I think it brightens up the place a bit more.

    Hey, this one’s really good!

    Squeeze? Did you use the word ‘squeeze’? Work harder, man!

    That said, ‘FPOP!’ is really good.

    @Bearman – To be fair Faraday was under pressure – in hindsight he’d probably agree with you!
    @Tomas – Thanks!
    @K – I pencilled that ‘squeeeze’ in when i was sketching this one and it made me laugh for some reason, so it stayed :)

    Onomatopoeia is over-rated. Literal sound effects FTW!

    Amazing how those ants in just one panel go from the vilest looking creatures to the cutest.

    Hivemind ಠ_ಠ

    @ Dan – I do like a good onomatopoeia I must admit, but now and again a simple descriptive sound effect can indeed be funnier …context I suppose :D

    @TKJ… Indeed – funny how fear or apprehension can affect our perception of the world around us!

    @Dave… O_o

    I like “squeeze”
    Gay ant king, ha ha

    second last panel – gormless hivemind ants reminiscent of ‘the snorks’

  12. Alotron

    Ah the Snorks… the poor man’s Smurfs!

    it’s the sound effect ‘SQUEEEZE’, familiar to anyone who’s ever witnessed a blob sucked into an anthill

  14. a Non eMouse

    in response to the people that think it should have been blue, that choice would have camouflaged the throne decor. With mauve, the throne will really stand out.

  15. Alotron

    Well said e-mouse – Even under pressure Faraday’s intuitive sense of interior design came through!
