Oky, Tepoz predicts no further problems.
Head for the storm cellar!
I’m really glad he detected and confirmed that Bud’s aim was true.
even if her aim was off, there’s a star almost at all angles away from the earth.
Yes, but it would take significantly longer to reach any of those stars than it would take to reach the sun. It wouldn’t be there yet.
OK… Tepoz’ forecast is “no shoes” – and somehow I get the gut feeling that the look on his face is not exasperation, but rather one of knowing a different storm is coming that’s gonna drop something far more formidable –
If not shoes, then what about boots? Or whatever boots would translate to in this shoe/mythical storm of destruction analogy
No shoes , just stockings .
I think the first shoes to drop will be Phix’s…
Or perhaps Jin’s now that she is getting to reintegrate and is finally heading into terra incognita. “Mom, I want you to meet my boyfriend…”
Sounds like it’s time for a forced happy hour.
Thanks, Pablo, for reminding me how smexy Monica is — double points for the stockings.
This must be her most beautiful pose this year. <3 😀
omg, what if you were to draw Monica wearing toesocks?
be still my beating heart.
Of course it won’t be a shoe.
It’ll be a BOOT TO THE HEAD!
Win, Sir. Pure win.
Yeah, if Tepoz says the coast is clear, then arm the battle stations. That guy and telling the truth are strange company,
Predictive ability aside, Tepoz MAY be talking sense, here. Monica is acting a bit… off.
And she’s missing a golden opportunity! Quick, Monica, while Phix is ‘occupied’, “poit” to the library and read all the things she wouldn’t want you to! Books from previous cycles detailing what happens in 2011 and 2012, lists of dangerous magical artifacts, her diary (“something something BC: Encountered a museum director today. He couldn’t answer my riddles. Delicious! Make a note: Always go for the museum directors…”).
I like how well Pablo got the scale right between tiny Monica and her office chair. She looks like a twelve year old in it. It looks like she needs a shorter desk, too.
It’s so tough to distinguish a sibilant starting a word, especially when it’s paired with a previous word that ends in one. Are we sure he didn’t say Snow shoes? (c8
Waitaminnit … If Ms. Phix is touring the museum where Ms. Villareal works, then who is minding the βιβλιοθήκη?
Wow. Best I could do was 5.
I wanted to say, I like this expanded page format much better than the old-style strip format. There’s a lot more room for the art now even when there needs to be a lot of dialog, and it’s reading more like a comic book, which suits the story better.
And the art is better. Much.
Given some of the unusual circumstances M has found herself in, I don’t blame her for being more than a little paranoid.
All i can say is Phix is out of the Library, there needs to be a wine adventure incoming.
Where HAS he been? And I miss his hat/hair/thing. :'[
I would like to throw in my lot about the weather analogy:
PENCIL SHOWER! NEWS @ 11!
Monica wears a black top / minidress to de-emphasize her ample chest….
What do the striped leggings represent?
“I make toys at the North Pole”?
Some kind of optical illusion to make her seem taller?
Hardly business attire.
Speaking of dropped shoes…
Where are her shoes?
Are they under the desk?
By the door?
Under one of her desks. =)
Speaking of which, that one desk is extremely tidy!?!?!
I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before, I have the feeling I may have but can’t find it at the moment, but, on the off-chance that I haven’t, Tepoz is right. I remember listening to an interview with Martin Bell, who was a BBC journalist that covered the war in Yugoslavia. He said that he felt as if he had visited another planet when he got back to Britain. His own country felt strange and foreign to him.
What do powerful beings do when they’re bored?
Stick pencils to ceilings with their mind.
