I can hardly pronounce it myself. And then not reliably.

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good wight -- er, night!

Editorial Reply

Dear Editorial Staff:

I must highly protest your use of an alleged 'poem' by that arrogant Dark Elf fellow in your Christmas edition of the 'Downer. Such impertinence is uncalled for, and sullies the Holiday tradition! This is a time of year for rampant spending and teaching children the essential tools of business: greed, dishonesty and ingratitude. There should be no levity or parody surrounding such a blessed event as the largest quarterly household expenditure on retail merchandise for the fiscal year.

As far as the parody itself, I prefer the original "Night Before Christmas" as it sets the proper marketing tone with dreams of toys swimming about in addled TV-addicted children's heads. It is a veritable toy commercial read by parents to their children at bedtime, and it doesn't cost advertisers a red cent! And what established poet rhymes particular with vehicular? It is preposterous nonsense!

Sincerely,
Morthoron the Moriquendi
The Barrow Downs, NW Arnor

By the way, if you want to see the other Phantom and Alien related videos or the two other Fungoltch and Schmurt comics, they're on the special website as well...

Although I'm pretty sure that what they are saying makes no sense in any language, I'd suspect that this is somewhat loosely based on some Germanic language. At least the "mitt" in the sign gives me the idea that this crazy language had verbs similar to German ones, in this case "mittkruspmoren" or something like that.

Alright, I'll tell you. It's the lyrics to Kraftwerk's Das Model played backwards. My brother, Matt (animator and voices of Fungoltch and Schmurt), thought this was funnier than my idea of reading out random bits from every language on an electrical instruction manuel.

Well, it's Friday and it's Phantom and Alien time!



On Monday it's 50TH EPISODE TIME!! Yep, we're almost half way through volume two already! After episode 50 goes up, there may be a short break of some other comics not in this story. Exploring the Phantom and Alien's previous attempts at fame.

And now, the first half of Volume 2 of The Phantom and Alien reaches it's shocking climax!


Comic Archive

Alien’s exploding beans were first mentioned HERE, and later HERE.

There will be no Phantom and Alien on Wednesday or Friday. On Monday will begin a week of 'before they were famous' P&As before we go back into the EPIC story.

Keep your feet in the fire, burst your nose on a bookcase and waddle down the road, it's time for the news...



We're taking a break from the EPIC STORY of Volume 2 for a week or so. For now, here's what The Phantom and Alien were up to before they decided to become comic strip stars...


Comic Archive

The conclusion to this 'exciting' adventure will be shown on Friday. On Monday there will be a brief 'previously on The Phantom and Alien' strip and the following week we'll be back into the story.
Hope you enjoy it!

This plan may change, mind you, depending on how I feel...

Not only is that the weirdest escape of all time; but also the best! I will have to try it sometime.

I am going to have to use that as an excuse for everything. It will join the Barrow-Downs Quote Hall of Fame (and active vocabulary) that TheGreatElvenWarrior and I have put together.

That was an excellent article by the way, very...informative. I never really 'got' the idea Wednesdays either, they should be moved to in between Saturday and Sunday.

Feeling out of touch? Feeling like it's time for some news? Didn't think so. But here's The Downer anyway.



Just in case you feel like the story is running away...PREVIOUSLY ON THE PHANTOM AND ALIEN!!!

And now, the adventure continues. Just how many died in that explosion?

Haha! I love how cheerful Davem is about arresting Phantom. Also, Phalien makes me think of pairing shipping in fanfics and fan art, which makes me giggle for embarrassing lengths of time.

It's New. It's Plural. It's The NEWS!

Keep your socks on the radiator and eat a whole muffin, this week there's some interesting stuff. Probably.



Our epic adventure continues with The Phantom getting in to some trouble. Poor Phantom.

Mr Gross the Boss first appeared in episode 001 of Volume 2! He came back briefly in this episode. But what is going to happen to Phantom? Who knows?

Sorry, Wednesday was a bit hectic for me. If the same happens next week I may have to revert to the two-comics-a-week deal again. Sorry.



If you've been paying attention, you will have noticed Fish-Man references strung out through this little tale. First seen here, then here and here. Also, the mysterious Mr Namshif's name is a rubbish anagram of 'Fish Man'. Yep. It's all coming together.

If you've forgotten Rune's previous appearances, I shall direct you here and here.
Clearly he's a funny, funny guy. And being digested by Alien didn't mess up your social life, clearly.

Alright you lot! Hands on heads! Eat some breads! See some... meds?
Anyway. Here's the news.



The Phantom has some trouble in prison. But he soon deals with it.


Comic Archive

Well, it’s definitely SOMEONE’S wallet.

I hope you're all enjoying the Phantom and Alien volume 2! There are only 44 episodes left! Gosh! I'm already getting into Volume 3 and have plans going as far as volume 6. Lets just say there are some incredibly seemingly insignificant things that become very, VERY important. So, make sure you keep your eyes open in the upcoming and episodes, and do go back through the previous ones to see if you can come up with any theories...

Best Phalien line ever. Well, at least, it's one of my favorites. Also, I've decided I like the way you did the text, it's a lot easier to read now.

Yes, I'd been struggling with a workable format for some time. I always wanted to keep the colour coding as a sort of quirk for the comic. So far, I've kept this format into Volume 3.

That would be one expensive piece of property.

Make sure your face is covered and your stomach prepared, because it's time for some more Phalien nonsense!



I hope you're all wondering what's going to happen next.
