With several people asking me if the “baby” was going to be half zombie and what not… I thought doing something incredibly goofy like this was appropriate before we get to the next arc.
George was only the host for the eldritch abomination parasite that we’re calling Minithulhu. If he was a normal, living host he’d have died as the being devoured his insides as it gestated.
Oh, and to answer why Minithulhu is green when the other squid headed things have been purple… I have no idea. Let’s say it’s due to age or something. I thought about making him purple too for Friday’s comic when I introduced him and decided against it for some reason. I figured he was different enough in shade than Francis and Karl so I wouldn’t have to worry about it when/if they show up together in a strip.
Maybe I’ll think of a real reason that can be retconned into the mythos or something later.
