Wow. What kind of handsome hero is he?

A rather depressed one, at the moment!

Joe would probably get along better with Henson's long-lost* twin, the rugged Aku-Shin Hireau.



* Non-canonical and possibly evil.

Ugh. Hey, you know what, Joe? You're right. You win--it's all Henson's fault. Now go out there and show him how it's done! I'll be waiting over here with the fire extinguisher.

Alternatively: Someone needs to hit him over the head with the Therapy Bunny. That IS how it works, right?

edit: Oops, this is for strip 217.

Yaaaay! And I love the interaction between Marty and Whatsername in the background. (Uh, what IS her name, anyway? I don't believe she ever introduced herself.) You have the BEST supporting characters. Can the main cast keep them when they escape? Please?

I also love how Joe talks tough, but latches onto the Therapy Bunny without even thinking about it in the last panel. The little details are what really make scenes like this.

I've been thinking, what if we started a thread on the whole comic, rather than one page at a time? I think that would lead to more continuity of conversations, and more in-depth discussion as well.

It was alright to have one thread per comic a while ago when there was enough activity on the forum to fill a page or two, but now there's so little commenting going on that it would make more sense to consolidate.

I kept thinking, "Is she an important enough character to introduce right now? I don't want to throw too many names at people." Eventually I thought, "All right, she's had enough screen time that maybe a proper introduction would be good," but by then it was awkward.

Anyway, her name in the script is Alera. I'll probably have someone mention it later (and/or shamelessly edit it into an earlier page). Nudge Nudge

And Brady, that's a good idea! If it helps, I can just add a thread whenever a new scene starts, and post new pages there as the scene goes along.

Like so:

Whelp, Kiku's screwed.

Hrm, I wonder if this will lead to an encounter with a certain doily-wielding badass in the future?

First of all, Kiku will be fine. The alt text says so! And we all know Joe would never let anything hurt Kiku--he has dibs.

I also thought we might be meeting that gentleman you mentioned soon, but I can't help but wonder. We've run across some of the things you'd expect to see with him nearby, but there's been some hints that they aren't necessarily associated with him this time around. Either that, or there's a whole new side to him (and/or them) that we never saw before. But how likely is that? Wink

I used to speculate a lot about whether X or Y was about to happen, but gave up when I realized we're arguably only on page 16 of the old comic. I suspect we're almost to page 17, but I wouldn't be terribly surprised if that's delayed a dozen pages or so by a sudden scene change. Speaking of which, how is Jen.....'s mother doing with all those bandits lurking about?
