And there you have the origins of Halloween..and you know it is true..because it's on the interwebs.
Come back this Friday for the regular scheduled update.

So it seems Kiakara's catapult does indeed work. The ending would appear to be a happy one...so far. Tune in tomorrow..same orc-time, same orc-channel to see if Janara and Gragg get to see the "Great Reven" in the pumpkin patch.

The plan seems to be working ...so far.
I wish I could offer a valid explanation for the references to cupcakes and cute orcs..but I can't. Some things are not really meant to be understood... but to be accepted just the same.

The term "orc plan" is self-contradicting, but that never stops an orc from trying. This was also a fun chance for me to debut a few new models in the comic, including one big stompy robot from Reaper's CAV game. I'm not sure where the cutie-bear came from though.
A bit of 'splaining for those new to 28MMT and the Warlord game, Hilly-G is the HIll Giant (thus the irony), and the CAV "Ogre" is a different stompy robot from the futuristic fantasy game system.
And yes, that'd be the Linus and Sally homage there in the last frame.

A Halloween special just isn't the same without Lucy and the football... or Kiakara and the catapult.

For those of you not familiar with the Reaper universe, Kargir is an icy realm populated by orcs..and being that it is an icy realm, the orcs often venture south into Anhur during the winter..and then stay there for the summer..or a bit longer if they want to. Gragg is their leader... and Janara... well, she's the self-appointed president of the Gragg Elfslayer Squeeing Fangirl Fanclub.

For those of you not familiar with Reaper's Warlord universe, a "reven" is what the orcs call a full-scale raid, and is considered to be a necessary rite of passage before an orc is considered an adult. In reality, the term seems to be related to the reavers of old who raided all along the borders of Scotland.
Neek the goblin considers himself a contender for Warlord of the goblinoid tribes of the Monglash Steppes, and in these comics is often trying to get himself one-up on poor Varaug.

Halloween has always been my favourite holiday. I mean, what's not to love about dressing up strangely and eating loads of candy. I also love this time of year because I can dig out my old VHS copy of It's The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown. This holiday 28MMT special is dedicated to the memory of Charles Schutz.
Check back nightly for the next week as I upload this rest of this eight part holiday special.
