Aww, I’ve missed Katherine. 😀
Okay . I need to finish catching up on the last two years , in the archives . I think I’m missing something about her .
She likes to talk to her plants and goldfish. 😉
Er, wait… where’s the spider?
Yeah , I remember that from the archives . I left off somewhere in 2008 . I though maybe I was missing something , though , it’s probably just me .
BTW , Katherine’s lookin’ hawt .
It’s a betta.
Whoa. Kath lookin’ good!
A) Why is she repeating herself to the fish? B) I hate oscars. So many better fish to have.
That’s a betta named Oscar. =)
the betta fish is her best friend i think. Least her best friend non-human/demon/golem.
Jeez, could you make Katherine any more creepy looking than in the last panel? Wow
i actually thought she looked georgous in the last panel ^^
Perhaps not gorgeous but she does have a haunting beauty.
I had totally forgotten about her. It’s great to see her again. Yay for old characters appearing again.
Love Katherine’s new look. She’s got so much upstairs – and elsewhere – that she’d be a hot GF. Just a little self-esteem tweak, and she could rip up the stage anywhere…
And dark glasses.
Until she’s got you reeled in.
I liked the Forties look she had going when Monica took her to the Library.
Yeah. Katherine could be my Dita von Teese anytime ;o). Just need a Martini Glass big enough for her ;o)
So, Monica tells Katherine about what happened to the calendar machine, but neglects to inform her that their boss is giving/gave a tour of the museum to the sphinx?
If they meet, Kath will remember Phix, i suspect.
And vice versa, I think. Phix doesn’t seem to miss much.
Oscar seems to be singularly unimpressed. I preferred the creepy totally introverted Katherine as opposed to the current creepy babe Katherine.
Something missing… oh, yeah, her lack of clothing while in her apartment.
She just got home, give her a few minutes.
Uh , how’d she know it was destroyed ?
Monica told her?
“Oscar, that’s an über-bingo!” 😀
Yikes. Is it just me, or does Katherine look just a little bit more…. evil in that last panel?
No. That is just a girl standing her ground. Her raising self confidence. She extra repeats the fact that she talked with Monica. Which is not a normal thing for her.
i recon thats just her giving up trying to say everything that happened in one sentence by saying she just spoke to monica.
kinda like the monty python spanish inquisition thing i think..
“Our chief weapon is surprise…surprise and fear…fear and surprise…. Our two weapons are fear and surprise…and ruthless efficiency…. Our *three* weapons are fear, surprise, and ruthless efficiency…and an almost fanatical devotion to the Pope…. Our *four*…no… *Amongst* our weapons…. Amongst our weaponry…are such elements as fear, surprise…. I’ll come in again.”
Yay! Katherine’s looking _good_, and confident… and more than a little bit creepy.
And, yes, I agree with Jocelyn: I’ve missed Katherine, too. Good to see her back.
Katherine is my favorite character, she really deserves some more limelight.
She’s smart, sweet, and lovably strange – in short, my idea of a wonderful friend. Would be nice to spend my afternoons reading or doing ‘boring’ museum work with someone like her.
I think if Oscar could speak he would say
“Oh great YOU talked with Monica today. YOU get to go out and do interesting things with others while I stay here all day, swimming around and around in this unbelievably tiny little bowl. If you really cared about me you would at least spring for a larger tank with those plastic plants and ceramic castles. Oh! And one of those bubbly treasure chests with the lid that opens and closes. I could watch one of those things all day. Chasing the bubbles would be rad! You know, make my miserable little life a bit more interesting. I don’t even have one of those little castles with the big hole I could swim through over and over. But don’t worry about me. I’ll just be over here practicing floating upside down.”
Oscar is a bit less wordy, saying as much with that spit.
I’ve heard somewhere that the average attention span for a fish is somewhere around 3-5 seconds. So the conversation would have to be short, something like this:Q-“Who are you?” A-“Katherine.” Q-“Are you going to eat me?” A-“No.” Q-“Who Are you?”…etc
Oscar sure likes to spit.
Spitting is flirting for betta fish. The males make bubble nests that way when they fancy a pretty fishy lady.
I was under the impression that the Archer fish was the only one that spits. Live and learn.
They don’t spit long distances like Archers do, just small spits to make bubbles. 🙂
Ah Katherine… good to see you again. And still looking lovely.
Now if I could only “poit” myself into the toon. 😀
I missed Kath 😀 It’s good to see her again.
As for the repeat of ” Hey, Oscar!”, I kinda saw it as: “I talked to her and she did stuff.. but she didn’t…. Uhm… I’m not making a lot of sense.. Hmm.. You know what? Let’s start over!”
“Hey, Oscar! I talked to Monica today!”
Oscar: ” 😛 Spaz…”
I see it more like she is amazed at herself for talking to Monica at all. Amazed herself that she was actually being social and someone responded in kind with important and personal news. That she acted like a normal, non-introverted person. She is really saying it to herself for emphasis on this historic ocasion.
Bettas never want to hear your good news. They’re such grumpy butts. :B
I suddenly just got it. Oscar the grouch. Because anyone who’s had a betta will tell you, grouchy is all they are. (Yes, I’ve had a lot of them. I have a particularly bitter one named Emerald who hermits himself from his goldfish friends)
If you were as perpetually as sex crazed as Betas and had no female upon which to bestow your “gifts,” you would be grouchy too. Come to think of it, maybe that’s why I was so grouchy as a young teen?
Hey, it’s her again! Creepy-but-doesn’t-mean-to-be chick. I missed her!
How about a Katherine cameo in Zebra Girl, then? There’s a lot of townsfolk running around currently… 😉
She looks great 🙂
I am curious about her hair though. She must be conditioning it or going to the salon cuz i know previously her hair was kinda sucky and now its woah!
Are all these chars based on peeps from real life (eg is there a girl whos hair was like that and she changed it) or pure imagination?
I seem to recall monica was based of a gf?
It’s good to see Katherine’s doing a better job with her hair products than she was with make-up the first time she tried it lol
Wossa deal with the aprés-Morris wallpaper (of which, btw, I completely approve)? I didn’t remember seeing that in the apartment before.
Perhaps we can pretend that, along with her new look and attitude, she put up new wallpaper as well. Now she just needs a boyfriend (girlfriend?). Maybe a morgue attendant or mortuary embalmer. Better yet, an entomologist with a large collection of living specimens.
Her fresh hairstyle makes her look MUCH more attractive (even with spider eyes…) Lookin’ forward to seeing more Kathryn.
I do that ALL the time. My husband just sits there with a ‘wtf?’ expression until I explain what I am talking about.
Aahh gotta love Kath!
Gorgeous textures and patterns in this strip, Paul. Top-notch!
