Snipping cords of all shapes and sizes

On the weekends she uses her giant scissors to cut ribbons at grand openings.

Midwife held the coveted title of Current Champ from Sunday, August 10, 2008 to Tuesday, August 12, 2008, heartily vanquishing The Cord Marshal to earn it. Unfortunately, brutal defeat came soon after, at the merciless hands of Thumb Gremlin.

This hero's magnaminous likeness was captured at the moment of glorious triumph by Sutter .


Quotes overheard while standing in the crowd that gathered to watch the carnage…

  1. fantastic!!! Her hair is awesome.

  2. Now this makes even less sense than usual: why would an onryo have a job delivering babies?

    Also, I would have thought her other occupations would have included performing spooky vasectomies.

  3. "She is the Faeries' midwife, and she comes in shape no bigger than an agate-stone, on the forefinger of an alderman..."

  7. Love the character, but the name is a bit lacking.

    Maybe, "MidWife Crisis" would've been better?

    Anyway, the art was amazing.

  8. Wow, "onryo" is right. (Had to look it up -- thanks for the link, L)

    Sutter, that is all kinds of excellent.

  9. Brilliant, this is my favourite of yours so far!

  10. @ATM: You're so right about the name, because then it would have been: "Mid-Wife Crisis / snips cords of all shapes and sizes" which rhymes quite nicely.
    It is, however, a fantastic illustration, as usual.
