Nice comeback with the star of David. Reminiscent of Richard Benjamin(Van Helsing) in "Love at first bite".

Or Alfie Bass in The Fearless Vampire Killers: Oy vey, have you got the wrong vampire.

Nicely done here, too. :)

Hmmm, might have better luck with a Twilight book, then again, that just might provoke Luke.

Has a feeling Pepper would've be brought in by a van like vehicle and in a straight jacket. Would have to wait for the jacket, though that is one heavy duty truck for an exterminator. Must get some real pest problems.

BENNY from The Mummy! That was always a funny scene...And that's what she reminds me of is him, pulling out all the different religious symbols.

Polyamorous? Does she mean polytheistic?

Even in settings where religious symbols do work, there is something more to it than "flash symbol".

Sometimes it is that particular creature (Vampire religious guilt, go figure).

Sometimes it is because there is something backing that symbol (whether or not it is what the believer thinks it is).

Still a funny bit. XD

But just about always the believer needs to believe in the symbol or something behind it. Someone who describes her faith as polyamorous is probably not going to manage that. So this page really tells us very little about the rules of this world.

Again, it varies based on the story. Of course, some of those stories are intentionally silly.

Granted, as it was over three years ago when I last commented, I am trying to figure out if I somehow missed the movie reference (someone else even plainly stated it, so I hope not XP). I probably just was intentionally trying to create a tangent discussion, as I enjoy such things.
Some Ed 10th Dec 2018, 5:39 PM edit delete reply
Well, yes.

Just to be explicit, my response hinged on the difference between polyamorous and polytheistic: she did not attempt to assert that she actually *believed* in multiple religions, just that she loved them.

It was my guess you were just trying to discuss things, tangentially or otherwise. Any movie that would be on topic for this comic would not be one I was familiar with. I came here to admire the artwork, which is amazing, but I really take issue with the bulk of the characters here...

Then on the off chance you feel like knowing a bit more about what is being referenced, as opposed to the actual story because it has been a long time since I read the earlier chapters... ^^'

The comic strip is referencing a gag that was either itself an homage to something with which I'm not familiar or else originated in The Mummy (1999). It is not intended to denote a serious believer in the faiths involved. ;)

Ignoring the completely silly stuff, I've seen the cross work because of a vampire's own personal hang-ups, because of the higher power it represents, or because of the faith of the person wielding it. The third is distinct from the second because only the strength of the person's beliefs, as opposed to what it is they believe in, is the source of its power.

Anyway, keep enjoying the art. ;)
