Yes. I was worried that it was going to be another one which was too obscure, again, though I suppose I should have expected someone else here to know the series.

Out, damnéd Spot! Bad Doggy!

And.... going in a completely opposite tone from that last one, a 3.9L container of 93% Lysergic Acid Diethylamide.

I think we've found Mr. Popo's (Dragon Ball Z Abridged) supplier!

A necklace, with a pendant in form of a circle with a "X" inscribed -- only the arms of the "X" have small semicircles attached near their ends, almost touching the circle.


I keep thinking this sounds familiar, but I just can't place it. Sorry.

OK, I think it has been long enough... it's The Phantom's "good mark", the one that signals that one bearing it is under the Ghost Who Walk's protection. It usually is imprinted by a ring the Phantom wears on his left hand (similar to the skull mark imprinted by the ring on his right hand, notoriously when he punches someone), but this necklace was featured prominently in an early story from the Wilson McCoy years.

I must note that the mark's appearance has changed over the years... a very early portrayal shows it just as an "X" with the ends bulging slightly. In the Wilson McCoy story, it was a "X" with the semicircles alternating the way they faced, so they all were in the left or right quadrant, and none on the top or bottom quadrant. More recently (probably in the Sy Barry years) it became a cross instead of an X (that is, it was turned 45°) and all the semicircles face the same way, windmill- or swastika-like. It's usually portrayed with the semicircles facing clockwise, even on the Phantom's ring, although that poses an inconsistency -- if the *ring* image is clockwise, the image *imprinted* should be a mirror, that is, counterclockwise. Sometimes the inconsistency is show in the *same panel* of the strip, like here:

Don't call me "Shirley." You will surely make me surly.

I did not know this. However, I doubt she downed the whole thing at once.

Anyway, my outstanding items are:
  • A battered tin can labeled as Sakuma Fruit Drops.
  • Several dozen sets of U.S. Army fatigues (circa 1950), dyed red.
  • A pair of binoculars, enchanted to circumvent magical privacy protections.
  • Three loop-handled vases - one blue, one red, and one golden - with odd inscriptions on them. Tied to one of them is a note written in somewhat archaic Japanese.
  • A bag made from fowl leather, containing a small arsenal of ancient weapons.

A brown metal object, about the size and shape of an American football, with two dials and three red lights on the outside.
It tends to make odd bleeping noises at random intervals

I love watching their innocent little faces smiling happily as they trip gaily down the garden path, before finding the pit with the rusty spikes.
