The Smile Foundation.

Hey a place not covered in corpses or smelly chunks, sweet.

Don't you know corpses strewn about everywhere with bloody chunks lying pulsating on the ground builds character.

not just a ghoulish face, but an infinite symbol.
1: minus infinite trust points.
2: the gang are unwitting pawns, since otherwise they'd know the ghouls and infinite are allied.
3: infinite is probably actually eight the same line as three.

less certain:
4: that's eight's face
5: eight can make people ghoulish.

That face reminds me of Bubs from Homestar Runner.

@OverBurn I'm sorry but I have no idea who eight is or what infinite symbol you are talking about there is no infinite symbol on this page are you talking about the S's in the dopey looking eyes if not can you elaborate please.

@anon I was wondering what that face reminded me of.

This seems too legit to be legit.

14762: Rad Rick - Monday, November 6 2017 - 6:32 AM

@OverBern i totally think that there'll be some sort of connection to infinite being a sideways 8 now, great idea!

14763: OverBern - Monday, November 6 2017 - 7:27 AM

there is an eldritch doll-person called three, and an organization whose symbol is an eldritch doll-face with an 8(zoom in. it's asymmetrical, but closer to an 8 than an s) for an eye. i'm thinking those are connected.

the global order make three-like stuff and know about him(988). we know he's called three because he wrote it down himself(637). whether G.O. made him or based their antimagic tech on him, he's likely number three of something. not too much of a stretch that there's a number eight of the same, who has different gross powers like maybe making ghouls.

there is an organization, ruled by a magic-user, whose symbol is an infinite-symbol, which is an eight on its side. looking through the recent comics he's been shown twice, grinning crazily in partial shadow(982).

supporting the theory that eight and infinite are the same is the fact that some infinite subordinates wear goggles and have covered faces. however, infinite might have no powers other than making the communications-crystals his subordinates use, or other powers unrelated to ghouls. at least gilla didn't seem to think they're allied to ghouls(1000), but if the theory is correct many infinite-members don't know about the connection, and she seemed more like an enforcer than an advisor.

also saw "smiling ox inn" logo(562). looks a lot like the smile logo with horns, and ghouls have those. that's so similar it's even less likely to be a coincidence than the 8/infinite thing, and if smiling ox belongs to smile that means they're not too smart to use logos and names derivative of their main.

Aw, I was expecting Noah...

You know, that face symbol on the wall reminds me of something from the Mario & Luigi series... From the Beanbean kingdom? I don't remember damnit...

That's it, I'm done, this comic keeps adding more and more interesting places with more and more interesting characters, nope, I want off the bandwagon, back to mundane comics for me.

14766: Neoriceisgood - Monday, November 6 2017 - 10:05 AM

@Tom I can't actually tell if your post is in jest or not. XD.

Do keep in mind I stand by the principle that even my nadic 'npc's should look as unique as possible. So even the most minor of minor one of character will generally look interesting.

14767: mikato1 - Monday, November 6 2017 - 1:17 PM

I'm getting a vibe off the Smile Foundation HQ rather a lot like the one given by Castle Oblivion in the Kingdom Hearts series. are we gonna get mindscrewed?

14768: Mousio - Monday, November 6 2017 - 3:27 PM

Looking great!
I'll just watch and wait :)
With a smile on my... gait?

14769: Nitro - Monday, November 6 2017 - 5:36 PM

Yeah, mario and luigi : superstar saga, the bean bean kingdom. the whole place is fileld with reference about puns and jokes and that smiley face comes up often

14770: Atlas - Tuesday, November 7 2017 - 1:49 AM

@OverBern a couple things,
1. I know who three is he's probably the best character in Tobi's story
2. You were referring to eight as an already introduced character that's what had me confused
3. Three and the smiley face have no conentations of Eldritch horror in my opinion Three is closer to a more fleshy version of Mr Fantastic at most.

@Silver yeah that face is very similar to Fawfle from Superstar saga.

14771: HanMK - Tuesday, November 7 2017 - 6:21 AM

@OverBern I'm pretty sure that the symbol in the eye is an S, not an 8...

14772: Tor - Tuesday, November 7 2017 - 7:43 AM

Reminds me, are there any sort of scedule for updates? when should i look for a new story-fix?

14773: Charter - Tuesday, November 7 2017 - 10:34 AM

"Hi! And welcome to the Aether Foundation, we help take care of injured pokémo- wait wrong universe. I mean-
Hello! And welcome to the Smile Foundation!"

14774: Atlas - Tuesday, November 7 2017 - 12:28 PM

@HanMK that's what I was saying

14775: Kiithnaras - Tuesday, November 7 2017 - 12:40 PM

A white, pristine place devoid of foul odors and grime underneath a putrid and vile city like Lorg?

Something smells funny here...

14776: Potatopeelerkind - Tuesday, November 7 2017 - 1:24 PM

@Tor It updates on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays usually. Sometimes Neo is generous and gives us daily updates.

14777: MatthewTheLucky - Tuesday, November 7 2017 - 7:17 PM

Are they on a 48 hour day?
