Wirt’s Third Leg

by Steve Napierski to Comics

This is what we refer to as an eleventh hour comic. I knew around 9:30pm that there was no way that I would finish the comic I was originally working on on time. For starters, the strip is fifteen (15) panels long and I was only five (5) panels in. Second, as of 9:30pm I had just finalized the way that the characters in the comic would look. And lastly, it’s fifteen friggin’ panels long! I know a lot of you think that this is my full-time job or that I have all the time in the world, but I don’t. If I did, then I wouldn’t ever have an excuse for a missed update or lack of polish. But since neither of those are true, I can.

I was joking with a friend about Wirt’s Third Leg last week. Saying that I imagined it being like an old Hanna-Barbera cartoon. In fact, I was originally intending on animating this like an old Hanna-Barbera cartoon but time constraints had other things in mind. I can still hear the old cartoon music while I’m reading this comic.

Nonetheless, I will continue to work on the originally planned comic and hopefully I will have it finished sometime next week. Until then…

    I got Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends vibe from this comic, not Hanna-Barbera.

    World of Warcraft?! Blasphemy! It was even an item in Diablo 2, granting you access to the secret cow level!

    @BigLord Wirt’s Leg: Diablo II, Wirt’s Other Leg: Warcraft III, Wirt’s Third Leg: World of Warcraft.

    I think in Hellgate London, there was Wirt’s Prosthetic leg. I know they had alot of diablo throwback jokes in there.
