In Minty's defense, Leonard Cohen really is pretty creepy.

I bought Minty's little flashlight early this year (February, I think), preparing for a strip about the Nightmare, a haggard mare who is Ponyland's equivalent to the Bogeyman. So imagine my surprise when the new My Little Pony cartoon premiered, and the key villain was named Nightmare Moon! At first, I wondered whether to continue with my plans. Then, I just decided to let it be a neat coincidence.

For the curious, that flashlight is a Streamlight Nano. It is not your typical toy flashlight keychain, but a rather serious piece of mechanic's equipment. It lights a room better than any of my full-size flashlights! It still is very cute, though.





News!


It's a new month, so we have a new vote incentive. Get KT into the top 100 of Top Web Comics, and there will be a bonus comic Monday, November 29.

I should be able to post new donation incentive wallpapers later today. Check the KT fan page at Facebook for updates. I'll also be posting some new auctions!

I'm a huge Leonard Cohen fan since I was little so it made me laugh SO loud. I never though of him as someone scary, but it's so funny that Minty were afraid of him.

Lol, I love Cohen references ^^

HAHAHAHA!!!!

I grew up hearing lots of Leonard Cohen songs sung by other people. When I was in college, I decided that I needed to go to the source, to hear him sing his own songs (it was an era in which I thought people should only sing songs they wrote. I'm over it now.) And then I actually heard him sing. All I can say is that was a short-lived phase. He makes every single one of his songs sound like a funeral dirge. I sure wouldn't want him creeping under my bed.

LOL! I had a similar experience with Bob Dylan. I love the songs he writes, but he also sounds like someone who might hang out under your bed.

Candy swapping, so cute. <3

The last panel with Minty checking under her bed with the flashlight is fantastic. I'm really impressed with how well it turned out since it looks like only the flashlight was used for light in the photo. Wow.

Thanks! I was so worried that photo wouldn't come out using just the little flashlight, but it did. That thing is really bright!

Eee! :D I love your translations!

I wouldn't translate "nightmare," since they're referring to the mythical nightmare and not bad dreams. I think the closest thing you have in Spanish is the pesanta.

I have never heard about the pesanta O_o I know the Nightmare, but since it's not known in Spain I decided to translate it as I don't know any similar creature in our myths :)


I'm glad you liked it!

I never heard of it, either. Wikipedia is awesome! The pesanta is like the nightmare, only it's a dog or cat. It sits on a sleeping person's chest and gives them bad dreams.

Hahahaa! That's far scarier than the woodland creatures I feared were under my bed. XD

(And that reminds me -- I need to order one of those flashlights for my dad for Christmas, LOL.)

But not as scary as my closet dragon. o_O

I had you in mind when I posted the make and model. ^_^ He'll put it on his keychain and demonstrate it to coworkers!
