This Comic's Cast:

Just like in King's Quest. You gotta douse that monster. Why "douse" works when "splash" and "throw water at" and any number of other phrases didn't work I will never understand.

The joke for this comic really just stems from the fact that this is truly the best water effect I could find. My collection hath failed me.
 
    

When evil spreads across the land, and darkness rises and the monsters roam. When the creatures of the night make beautiful music, and the things that go bump in the night go bump with greater enthusiasm. When the world is in peril and is in need of a hero...

These guys are, sadly, the best the world can hope for. These are the adventures of the heroes of CVRPG. They mean well, they try hard, and occasionally they do the impossible...

They actually do something heroic.
