    Is Via Angus' Arch the Carrion Carreons?

  2. Ken says:

    "Nemesese" gave me hot pants.

  3. Shane says:


    that is all.

  4. James Pollock says:

    Gravity is a BITCH. Fight on!

  5. Phanatic says:

    Ken, have you contacted the Guild of Calamitous Intent? They should be able to provide you with an arch-nemesis who meets all your arching requirements.

  6. mojo says:

    "A righteous infliction of divine retribution, manifested in the person of an appropriate agent."

    Or so Brick Top says.

  7. Tarrou says:

    Just make sure to talk to a manager at GoCI, or the desk flunky will stick you with Captain Pastegobbler or some other such low-level antagonist.

  8. deadcenter says:

    There is no gravity, the earth just sucks.

    And, David is actually Dr. Jonathon Hemlock! What a cunning disguise.

  9. Linus says:

    Hey, my nemesis is an 11-year-old boy in my neighborhood. He's such a damn know-it-all. So, you know, could be worse.

  10. En Passant says:

    … my arch-nemesis is, as ever, physics. Gravity in particular.

    Gravity lurks in wells and traps even the educated unwary who disregard 19th century findings of classical physicians: a doctor should attend the sick, and leave the well alone.

  11. Captain Obvious says:

    My arch-nemesis is the dastardly Professor Subtle, against whom I battle in many comic book and television episodes, but Professor Subtle never fails to reappear in subsequent episodes. This could be because I have failed to apprehend him or adequately beat the snot out of him, or because, as I have pointed out on several occasions, "It's all retcon's fault!" – obviously.

    That is all.

  13. Jess says:

    Grab-ity is my arch nemesis. Could be the hot-pants I was wearing though.

  14. fred zeppelin says:

    I find it hilarious that gravity is your nemesis. after all, it's not just a good idea, it's the law!

  15. Jed says:

    Gravity is a harsh mistress.

  16. G Thompson says:

    The Evil League of Evil, which is the arch-arch nemesis of the Guild of Calamitous Intent and all other upstarts, approves of Gravity and would also appreciate Emperor Grog's contact details.

  17. Shelby says:

    Word has it Phil Foglio may be able to offer some insight on Grog. In particular, try cookies.

  18. Joe Pullen says:

    So – from the above author’s arch nemesese I might deduce the following – namely that . . . .

    (1) Patrick overindulged in a barrel of Space Grog thereby missing Emperor Grog’s appearance in "Möbius Dick" where his name real name was finally learnt.
    (2) Ken’s taint is so overwhelming that no serious arch nemesis dares come within snorting distance.
    (3) David wears turtlenecks and enjoys staring at rocks.
    (4) Grandy has bought into the scientific community’s hocus pocus belief in gravity. I mean really, who believes that the Earth’s rotation creates some mysterious force called gravity which keeps us from falling into space. Space is up – things fall down.


  19. Charles says:

    My arch nemesis is writing.

  20. Gal says:

    I approve of whatever destruction, defilement, and dastardly deeds emperor Grog wishes to visit upon New England.
