"You mean you eat flies?" gasped Wilbur.
"Certainly. Flies, bugs, grasshoppers, choice beetles,
moths, butterflies, tasty cockroaches, gnats, midges, daddy
longlegs, centipedes, mosquitoes, crickets - anything that is
careless enough to get caught in my web. I have to live,
don't I?"
"Why, yes, of course," said Wilbur.

bites! The two-headed trollThe troll shambled closer. He was perhaps eight feet tall,
perhaps more. His forward stoop, with arms dangling past
thick claw-footed legs to the ground, made it hard to tell.
The hairless green skin moved upon his body. His head was a
gash of a mouth, a yard-long nose, and two eyes which drank
the feeble torchlight and never gave back a gleam.
[...]
Like a huge green spider, the troll's severed hand ran on its
fingers. Across the mounded floor, up onto a log with one
taloned forefinger to hook it over the bark, down again it
scrambled, until it found the cut wrist. And there it grew
fast. The troll's smashed head seethed and knit together.
He clambered back on his feet and grinned at them. The
waning faggot cast red light over his fangs.

These "Slashem" comics never feel like actual slashem. Actually, I die in slashem somewhat sooner than in nethack, so I really don't know what actual slashem is like, other than rabbits and reviving fungi corpses and Minetown not being in the mines. (... for nethack at Dlvl 10 or below, I read this comic.)

The "Planetar" (which might be the @ or the A) seems to be fighting the "phase spiderEight legged creature capable of spinning webs to trap prey.

Through me you pass into eternal pain:
Through me among the people lost for aye.

Maybe the last panel is a hint that slashem will displace nethack as the leading hack variant.

... That was wrong. Dudley must be the @ by the A, T, and s, because I just noticed the text ("The phase spiderEight legged creature capable of spinning webs to trap prey.

I can see a black bar under panel 3, regardless of font size. I'm with Mozilla5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; ja-JP; rv:1.7.6) GeckoLizards, snakes and the burrowing amphisbaenids make up the
order Squamata, meaning the scaly ones. The elongate, slim,
long-tailed bodies of lizards have become modified to enable
them to live in a wide range of habitats. Lizards can be
expert burrowers, runners, swimmers and climbers, and a few
can manage crude, short-distance gliding on rib-supported
"wings". Most are carnivores, feeding on invertebrate and
small vertebrate prey, but others feed on vegetation.

I have a black bar under panel 1. When I see it, I try another browser. At least lynxTo dream of seeing a lynx, enemies are undermining your
business and disrupting your home affairs. For a woman,
this dream indicates that she has a wary woman rivaling her
in the affections of her lover. If she kills the lynx, she
will overcome her rival.

Massive multiplayer NetHack would be bad, no, SO bad. Maybe a cooperative mode like 2 friends playing in a room...
