That’s some snowglobe she’s got there….
That’s as much as a snowglobe as my soon-to-be little sis.
*snowglobes. You’re welcome.
Well, that answers everythi—no, wait. Nope, it doesn’t. What the heck, Connie?
It’s a Snow globe. Ya’ know, the globe that holds their son, Snow.
(Hey, compared to a girl named “Conquest”, the name “Snow” is almost reasonable.)
Polaroid fetuses that exhibit 7 months development in a span of 18 hours, Ken?
Their child is a white rapper with a contrived Jamaican accent?
That or a Final Fantasy character.
Which almost makes sense, with Chun-Li is his dad.
I was trying to resist, but no…
Now I’m picturing, 10-15 years in the future, a little Snow Villiers running around, helping run the empire he would soon control.
Although, one has to think… Snow Villiers is pretty much a revolutionary, right? Wouldn’t he try to overthrow Galasso and E.Honda’s empire?
He’s obviously a bastard from Winterfell
That is the creepiest now globe ever.
A birthday gift from Galasso, I’m sure.
Now Globes are very impatient…I prefer Slow Globes.
What about Moderately Swift Globes? They’re not as extreme as Now or Slow Globes.
That’ snow globe…it’s a space station!
Even “creepiest…ever” doesn’t cover it. If I were ever to see that snow globe in person I’m sure I’d have nightmares for the rest of my life.
I actually find it pretty cool. I’d like to have one, and perhaps a second one with the creature of Black Sabbaths “Born again” album (http://www.allmusic.com/album/mw0000311503) in it?
Yes, you may consider me creepy, if you like.
Galasso gave it to remind her what she means to him.
Ken, I’m pretty sure your spawn is not the Anti Christ. It’s not 1999 for one thing.
Anti-Christ is every 25 years not once a millennium.
I want one! Willis, patent and sell this now!
If Conquest sells toys like that, no wonder she’s trouncing her father’s business.
Or else she is lying.
-Mommy, Mommy! I want the fetus snowglobe!
-But Billie, we already bought you the roadkill desk light
-Dad!Can I have the fetus snowglobe like Billie?
-No, Jackie. You still haven’t played with your My Little Monsters playset that I bought for you for your birthday.
-Sally, don’t ask for another toy until you play with that Demon Doll I bought you
-But Moooooom, it tells me to burn things!
And tries to steal my body!
-Jake! What did you do to your brother?
-We’re just playing with the Omega Beam Cannon when suddenly it went out of control and blast him.
All of these just make me think: Dr.Wondertainment
I did wonder where the hell they were. If that is Conquest’s toy manufacturing plant, that explains a lot.
She should call it “The Heir” and hand it over to Galasso. (I’d be willing to bet that with his familiarity with the actual birthing process, he’d never figure out it wasn’t real.)
Might have been what she was thinking if she was behind its design. I could see her having a change of heart after getting the means though. She wants him to accept her on her terms not his.
This really really really needs to be sold in the comic merchandise store
The year is 2012.
Google Seppuku was invented seven years ago.
And now Doctor_Who wants David Willis to patent a fetus snowglobe.
A google image search for “fetus snowglobe” however already gives 460 results…
I wonder how this conversation will turn out. I hope Kenquistadors dont get sunk already, we just got a name.
My collection NEEDS this.
My brain DOESN’T need that.
Collection of… what?
The fact your grav is KRANG makes this comment epic.
That snowglobe reminds me of an ending from Darkstalkers.
Reminds me of the end of 2001. Guess I’m old, then.
What, uhhh…. what am I looking at here.
It’s a snow globe in the same sense that the Death Star was just government housing.
(also typo in the first panel (could))
Or what I believe was the official Imperial line- a mining facility.
And it didn’t really blow up, that was just a gas leak.
“That is not a bug. It is a feature.”
Coincidentally, you can get a Death Star snoglobe. Of Vader building one out of snow, even.
…Who…who creates a snowglobe like that?
And why isn’t he in a looney bin?
They might be a less than successful toy tied in with the Matrix.
I’m pretty sure that given the characters in this comic, that stuff like this is normal and the only people in the looney bin are trying to dig a tunnel to Saturn.
Oh Akuma, your comical overreactions are my new favorite thing.
Yeah. I’m starting to love this goofy guy.
Considering he walked into the daughter of Galasso, known for having Galasso-logic instead of common sense, holding what seemed to be a fetus in an artificial womb held by suspicious machinery, and she was (for awhile) out to sire an heir, I don’t consider Guile’s faces here an “overreaction”.
Upside-down fetus with umbilical cord snowglobe…
Scary part? It’s real and comes in a veriaty of colours. http://www.goodgracious.co.uk/products/coloured-baby-snow-globes/
Yeah, but it’s missing that proper fetal position that just cranks it up from “oh god what is this aaah” to “OHGODWHATISTHISAAAAAAAAAAH”, you know?
Yeah that’s more “oh look a playful baby” and doesn’t look enough like a fetus to give me that feeling of “oh good gravy, what the hell is that you’re holding?”
He approaches!!! For I have heard the Word of God. He will bring an End to all things.
…Somehow, her owning a fetus snow globe seems scarier. 8-(
“this is just a snowglobe… the real spawning tanks are over there *points*”
You spoiled tomorrow’s comic :p
WE ARE ABOUT TO FIND OUT HOW GALASSO RESURRECTS PEOPLE.
Conquest is just a shitty liar.
The background music for the 3rd panel needs to be Thus Spake Zarathustra(2001: A Space Odyssey Theme).
… I thought that was Also Sprach Zarathustra?
In German yes, Thus Spake Zarathustra is a translation.
We need an old guy going “WOOO!” if that’s the case.
You are my new best friend.
I’m imagining something more along the lines of “One-Winged Angel”. Or certain parts of The Matrix.
Also, love what you’ve been doing with the Momo avatar the past few days.
Thanks, I like to run with a theme sometimes.
I thought that was Momo but the hair color was off so I wasn’t sure.
One of the strips the last few days had one of the interns at the library poking Momo’s belly button and discovering it changes her hair color. With a gif and everything.

…Somebody hold me.
I would, but I don’t want to be too forward. I’d prefer to just hold hands and see where that goes.
You seem to be wearing a condom for a hat. I’m out.
She’s just well prepared, that’s all!
It’s actually the condom residing on the marital aid hat that’s asking to be held.
I can’t believe I used the words ‘condom’ and ‘residing’ in the same sentence! Worst. Children’s. Book. Ever.
That you had a boyfriend
That looked like a girlfriend
That I held in February of last year
Awwww no Damian hellspawn this time.
is it wrong that i kind of want a snowglobe like that now?
Spermjacked! The new Shortpacked! spinoff!
These guys work in a Sperm Bank
and your mother
for a nickel
Pretty sure Mike’s gonna have to start charging quarters, between supporting a child and inflation…
and I lol’d. for a nickel……
Oh but it is real:
I can’t not click on a URL like that
You missed out then. Technology is spiffy.
Read LockeZ post one more time.
My bad. Coffee hadn’t kicked in yet.
Bummer. Blocked at my work as well.
It’s Alive! ALIVE! MWAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHA!
Seriously, that thing is horror movie mad science. Time to kill it with fire.
Haha, Zangief’s expression was priceless!
That looks pretty weird.
Soooooooooo Ken’s Batman? That’s really what’s happening?
Ken is actually Amazi-Girl.
Unbeknownst to Speed, Racer X is really his long lost brother, Ken Racer.
I’m pretty sure that this was where I learned the usage of the word ‘unbeknownst’.
In the original Japanese Rex Racer’s name is actually Ken’ichi Mifune, I shit you not.
Well not to my personal decor taste, a bit too scifi ya see. But to each their own.
Holy Shit!. ah that was my first reaction. and on second thought, it still is. That is beyond….
Another fun comic. This storyline has been a real hit, so far. Glad to see something great come from Ken other than the short few times we’ve seen Arnold.
This is something you get for someone on Christmas, that way you can pass off a gift card as a legit gift
Wow. A display of kindness towards an unready mind. Impressive.
I like to think that Ken’s Seed would result in a Galasso/Human hybrid who would start a weird incompetently run fast food place that has a bunch of nerdy weirdos working at it probably for life. They’d serve strange stuff like Breakfast Taco Salad Soup and Mocha Rhubarb Belgian Rye Toast smoothies.
And THAT person would understand sex but not have any idea how age works or what it means so he’d be giving four year olds a senior citizen discount just to see if any one reacts. Instead of wanting to rule the world he’d want to show it things, like how to knit, and do its taxes for it.
… OK. Somehow, somewhere, I have to work the line “Our seed will rule this world, won’t they? I have spawned the Antichrist!” into a conversation with a girl.
We’re all rooting for you.
If you use that line on a girl, and she doesn’t run away or reach for the mace, then she is the one.
…I want one.
Normally a fear of “sperm-jacking” would denote an excessively misogynistic ego at work but with Conquest around I do feel this might be the exception that proves the rule.
I actually have a friend whose ex threatened to poke holes in his condoms and that he wouldn’t notice so that she could get pregnant, so… it’s not that it NEVER happens.
It’s certainly not an epidemic, though
Conquest looks perpetually upset. It’s kind of a downer.
I must be reading too many Batman comics, all I could think of was maybe conquest was pulling a Talia on Ken, would that make him Shortpacked’s Batman? Speaking of bats, have you seen the Batman unlimited pics yet? Any thoughts?
Hmmmm…she just calls him Ken, though. she actually called Ethan “Beloved”, like Talia always called Batman.
So maybe Ken is like Bane? Y’know, the runner up?
That’s exactly where I went. “Yeah, Talia al Ghul had a ‘snow globe’ just like that one.”
. . .Ken doesn’t understand fetal development timeframes, does he.
Well, he does share a shift with Jesus. Some of the usual rules might be somewhat flexible.
Conquest remembered Ken’s name? It’s a sign that they must be together.
I thought this was a crazy-wacky saga again.
It’s a Borg Baby snowglobe!! I want one!
That is the greatest snowglobe ever.
It makes sense that the antichrist would be the son of Ken and Conquest. Of course, that is just a snowglobe; we won’t actually see the KenConApocolypse take shape for another nine months.
That is the creepiest snowglobe ever!
I can’t tell if it’s a good or bad thing that she’s just as strange as her father.
Can you make a snow globe like this available for purchase. I would buy like 30.
I want one as well.
This is one of a handful of situations where I feel spermjacking is a completely reasonable fear and concern.
By “This” I mean “walking in on the literally-a-career-supervillainess you just slept with holding what appears to be a gestating fetus ensconced in unidentifiable technology”.
It’s official. This is my ship.
Welcome aboard the Kenquestidors!
Do we get tea and cookies, or just the spiffy name?
There was talk of a t-shirt kickstarter.
Hmm… I’m thinking something crazy…
Wow, on Monday I discovered this strip. I went back to the first strip and I finally made it to the current script. Damn, this is a good strip.
…I don’t…I can’t…I don’t. 404 Error Brain Melted to Goo.
I just noticed that when she turned the globe upside-down, falling flakes are visible. And that is awesome.
That is an impossibly creepy snow globe. Who would ever want that?
I count ten posts in this comment thread right now. (Admittedly I was too lazy to check for duplicates, but still.)
Willis’ fans terrify me.
conquest has reallly creepy taste in snow globes plus the fact that thing is glasscos hint at he wants an heir. ken should be afraid very afraid for next time he sees that thing it could be a real fetus growing
