    Wait. I think I just failed a spot check. Really? I don't see anything. Exactly.

    It's a Titan of Ark. See 1:1 for example. (These boards apparently have a page:panel shorthand now.)

    Snag some Erfworld avatars and backgrounds, make some lolerfs and motivators (or demotivators), read my Erfworld fanmix, or check out my latest spotlight on an under-discussed webcomic: Head Trip (Scilight #13)!

    Thank you. That makes a lot of sense, really.

    But why do the Titans of Ark look like stylized pictures of Elvis?

    The same reason the Arkenhammer looks like a squeeky toy I have under my desk, and gwiffons are giant peeps.

    very first panel says that it's parson's new quarters, not Sizemore's...
    It's probably a room for Stanley's chief warlord, probably decorated by the last one... still love the Gwiffen on the wall

    Because the comic's creator likes Elvis. And it's funny. And they have to look like *something*.

    I'm pretty sure it's a velvet painting, by the way, not just a picture. There's fringe on the bottom of it!

    It's a Titan of Ark. You know, one of those ugly giant Elvises.

    Personally, I believe that Erfworld is the Stupidworld here, not Earth.
