#603 - "The Long Journey Back"

http://carnivores.comicgenesis.com/d/20160326.html

After Dashy easily kills off a few mobs, he starts to feel bad about leaving the others out....he wants to change this.

The person being killed is a Cyclops. Therefore you see an X for "DEAD" and not >< for "OW THAT HURTS SO BLOODY BAD"....Just...letting you know...

#602 - "Red Shirts"

http://carnivores.comicgenesis.com/d/20160319.html

OK guys, if you're not a fan of Star Trek, you might not get this joke.

In the series, when they explore a planet, they send down a crew. If the inhabitants of a planet are hostile, well, they attack the ones with red shirts on. "Redshirts" are usually the first to die.

There is a camp song about a goat that eats shirts. "Bill Grogan's Goat".  Linky here.

Put 2 and 2 together you get the joke somewhat.

And Dashy pays dearly for the joke. :)

#601 - "Buff Up"

http://carnivores.comicgenesis.com/d/20160312.html

The boys gear up and buff up for their impending doom...errr, BATTLE toward town.

Note that basher's wearing a red shirt. Basher's a BARBARIAN. They don't need armor. A red shirt is a bit of an inside joke a a few particular fandoms, meaning the redshirts usually die first. This red shirt that Basher's wearing gives off an aura that will make an enemy believe that the wearer of the garment is the weakest of group and will attack that person first. However, it won't work if there is a member of the group that's weaker than the Red shirt :)

Not sure if there's a game that has a buff that increases your stats by 200% for 30 minutes...

Also, the Nepali in the 5th panel translates to Steroids. Steroids increase your stats by 200%. That's why they're not allowed in sports.
