Webcomics Zanza

Postby LooksAndSmiles on Tue Jun 07, 2011 7:32 am

"Zanza" originally stands for shrunken heads used in some latin-american and new-guinean tribes, as a trophy of their fallen enemies. In our language, it has become a term for shrinking the content of an entire book (generally literature) into only 1 sentence...

The Rules:

1. You have to solve the riddle of the previous poster, also providing a link to the specified solution.
2. In the same post, give a new riddle.
3. The riddle should be a one sentence long recap of a webcomic. It can be well-known or lesser known, too! The aim of this thread is to share webcomics in a creative and hopefully fun way.


Example:

Post "A":
A group of goblins begin adventuring and almost kill a half-wooden ranger.

Post "B":
It is "Goblins". http://www.goblinscomic.com
My riddle is: A paintball shop owning polar bear builds all kinds of dangerous gadgets...

Let's get started by solving "B"'s riddle!

Comic about an amnesiac templar and his tiger girlfriend,
Extra-Dimensional shape-shifter with an affinity for confusion and mischief. Also I am a maniac...

Come lurk my game called The Forsaken.

Very first Bloodhound in Thuntworld Serial Killers.
Round 17 killer as Seth Bainwraith, fought off a lynch mob for 4 rounds until I purposely killed myself with a Trowel to complete the storyline of my kills.
Round 19 killer as Lesser Finger Horror, died in the first round but took the Ex-God SeeAMoose with me thanks to the Kaboomerang. (Thanks Warlock)
Round 31 killer as Forgath, died first round thanks to Vigilante justice...
Round 32 detective, found both killers fairly quickly.
Round 36 killer as FRGU, got hit with a computer error and thoroughly lynched.
Round 37 killer as Overlord, killed everyone and they didn't come back to life.

That would be general protection fault. Damn, it's been a long time since I read that one.

And since it needs to be done, at least once, on this forum... an incredibly easy one:
