"A comic about a witch, her familiar, the devil and the hymen-repair business."
Witchprickers is a twice-weekly satirical webcomic by Agouti Rex. It follows the adventures of a prim and proper witch, Syrynth Sapsorrow, and her timid familiar bat, Ilemauzer, living in an undisclosed location in medieval Germany. As the comic opens, Syryth has her life turned upside down when the devil and his entourage — consisting of his crotchety grandmother and his spoiled granddaughter — crash her cottage and decide to take up permanent residence.Oh yeah, and it's also Not Safe for Work.
This webcomic provides examples of:
Aborted Arc: What happened with Ilemauzer and the cap she gets while she's in Hell?
Deliberately Monochrome: The first five chapters in the Witchprickers arcs, as well as all the non-continuity arcs, are in black and white. In the middle of the fifth chapter in the main arc, everything was colorized by Old Scratch and, for the rest of the story after that, stays full color.
Dream Sequence: When Ilemauzer is in the woods, she had a dream after eating some mushrooms in which the world messes up around her and then several angry heads of people associated with her appear and scold her.
The Ghost: Sister Salamandra, one of the Sisters of Lost Mercy Convent in Retrograd, whom Ilemauzer was supposed to deliver a letter to. This was lampshaded when Ilemauzer gets captured by Feathertop Crystalclitoris and mistakes her for Sister Salamandra, only for the latter to angrily declare that she's not Sister Salamandra.
Ilemauzer, after Old Scratch tried to turn her into a human. Not only that, but her eyes also turned normal giving her color vision, and even her wings turned into hands! However, later in the comic, while she's in the Gruselwald looking for Sister Salamandra, she grows tired of this form.
Rugby Is Slaughter: The "Rule Brittannia" arcs concern an extremely brutal sport known as "Scrumby", all that has been revealed about it is that the death toll is extremely high and it's popular everywhere but America.
Running Gag: These disembodied genitals that fly by making "Eep!" noises.
