Malleus Maleficarum!
296 – Beware the Snatchengrabber

Merry Christmas, everyone! I hope that you all enjoy a happy holiday if you happen to celebrate Christmas and, if you don’t, just enjoy the day in your own way.  I certainly hope that you have something better to do with your day than read webcomics, but, in the event that you don’t, thanks for spending a minute of your day here at WWW.GUTTERSNIPECOMIC.COM!  It’s the only webcomic that didn’t plan ahead to have anything Christmas-themed on Christmas, but we already had that year-long Christmas arc so that kind of makes up for it, right?  Instead of this little story about a monster that lives in the closet; this story is cobbled together from various ideas I’ve stolen from much better storytellers including D.E.Belton, Shyguy9, Richard Roberts, and various other sources. That makes it sound a lot better than it really is.  But it’s a thing, so there.

Oh we’ll get back to learn more about Becky’s fate after this.  Don’t worry, it’s short.

Also, I’ve been in a real mood to draw me some urchins lately and, even though I don’t have any urchin stories to tell at the moment, that’s an itch that needs to be scratched.  So I’m declaring January to be EVERYDAY AN URCHIN month, where I will challenge myself to draw and post an urchin EVERYDAY — except for the days when I’ll be posting regular comics.  Those will just be regular comic days.

    Merry Christmas!!!!!
    On a comic-related note, at least with 2,000 teeth, their deaths are relatively quick.

    Merry Christmas to you too! :)

    A quick death is the best Christmas present of all! XD

    Reminds me of the intro to a Calvin & Hobbes collection I had as a kid. A “Nauseating Nocturne”, or something like that. Good memories.

    Also, “The Snatchen Grabber” sounds like it would be a great horror-parody porn flick, too. It’s a win all around! :D

  4. Agouti-Rex

    Oh yeah, I know that collection! I think it was “Something Under the Bed is Drooling.”

  5. Mr. Casual

    That’s the one!

    did you write this? rhyming pungent and ungent is super good

    I just recently read a nonfiction book about witches brews, and sadly I’ve done most of them

  7. quietlythundering

    I haven’t read that one in ages!!!!! Good thing I own a copy. Now’s as good as any time to reread some Calvin and Hobbes.

    Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Urchin

    @Mr Casual & Quietlythundering: It’s a classic. That’s probably one of the best collections, I think, other than the one with the transmogrifier gun.

    @Christopher: Thanks! :)

    @Butts: I did write it, and thanks!

    I actually have the huge hardbound mega-collection of C&H, and I just checked, and “A Nauseous Nocturne” is totally in there. :D

  12. Agouti-Rex

    I stand corrected!
