Okay, Allan is still among the living.
At least until Mom passes judgment (and possibly sentence).
I hate to be anal, but it should be ‘having your way with’ instead of ‘having you’.
In addition, I wish my mom was that cool.
Hey, anal is a lifestyle! Embrace it. Annoy the living hell out of everyone; you only go around once.
O_o; … Are … you two even talking about the same thing at this point? *snicker*
*cough* anal retentive *cough*
What an anal retentive thing to say.
Do you realize how what you said reads? I’m almost afraid to ask if you meant it. 🙂
You can’t have ‘analyze’ without being anal first. Simple law of spelling.
Realized it after I posted it; did mean to say anal retentive. I’ve been really short of sleep lately …
Pablo fixed it — hit refresh if you don’t see it.
…Actually, “with whom you’re having your way.” Shouldn’t end a sentence with a preposition. Or a proposition, for that matter. XD
I got my ears trimmed back because I pointed that sort of thing out once too often. Paul’s ruling was that he would fix actual typos and some really gratuitous errors, but for the most part the characters would speak with the minor grammatical twists and faults one finds in real life speech.
People mindlessly applying rules of Latin grammar to English (a Germanic language) is something we really shouldn’t put up with.
Actually, I kinda liked the original wording. Had that enticing hint of the carnivorous about it 😉 Not every grammatical error is bad… sometimes people misspeak in real life. I know I do it all the time…
You heard that, too?
Let me finish that sentence for you….
“…having your way with, and does he have a brother?”
Brother? More like father.
Nah. May became immortal at a relatively young age, i believe (her twenties, mayhap), so if Allan has, say an older brother…
AFAIK, she and Jin did it at the same time. Jin was 18 at the time so Maya would have had to have been at least in her 30s.
Ummm, Mr Taylor, sir?
Phix mentioned that Jin was an “inquisitive teenager” when she got caught in the mica-lined room.
This confirms Jin’s age. Both Maya and Jin were present when the calendar machine was activated, so they both stopped aging at the same time. I don’t think anyone was particularly “caught” there, but I’m not sure what jwhouk meant.
You know, eschmenk’s link makes me wonder…
now that Jin’s mom has been pulled from the demon-realm (through Monica, the doorway)…
…does Jin still need Monica?
I didn’t want to be “that guy” but someone else already was, so I get to feel better about myself in a way that makes no difference to anything or anybody. 😀 and I think Fairportfan totally has the un-drawn last panel there!.
There was a comic that Reed Waller (creator of Omaha, the Cat Dancer) did for Wonder Woman Day, showing Hippolyta apparently seriously considering a Very Skimpy Outfit, and that was Diana’s reaction…
My mistake – Not for WWDay – Joel Thingvall’s Wonder Woman Gallery.
(Pablo has done pieces for WWDay, too – you can see them at the WWDay pages.)
Sounds like a great comic,, sadly I couldn’t find it at any of the links you posted and chance of linking direct to the image?
Yup – here’s Wonder Woman and Mom, and his Wonder Girl piece (Shelly is one of Omaha’s friends, paraplegic since an assassination attempt on another character).
Also one of Pablo’s at Wonder Woman Day…
(Google Image Search is your friend, if you can figure out what search terms to use…)
Oops. Somehow i messed up the link to “Shelley’s Wonder Girl Dream”.
Let’s see if that one works.
A reference to a post since removed (that guy who first pointed out the caption’s typo).
Hah ! I hope she doesn’t want to hear all the gory details .
I’m hoping we don’t hear the gory details of Fatuncle’s “anal lifestyle”… 😉
Heheh . Word .
You can’t see me, but I’m flipping you off right now!
Now that’s a cool mother.
Hey, typos happen to the best of us. The way I see it, it’s the same difference as cluing a friend they’ve got a piece of food stuck in their front teeth, or their hangar door is open, etc.
(I agree. It should be “your way” rather than “you way.” )
Wow, not often you see characters portrayed as looking so physically worn out and tired. Even rarer to see one who is nothing but cheerful smiles in addition. Keep up the fabulous attention to detail, I love it.
Although, that raises another question. Maya is a golem like the rest, so did she already have those bags under her eyes before she became one? Because it almost seems more interesting to imagine that the things she went through were just THAT powerful.
Can’t wait to know more about her! Starting to really love this character,
…That’s actually a good question. Is Maya actually a golem, or is she more like Monica – an “enhanced human”?
Mayahuel is a golem. IIRC, she originated most if not all of the technology to make golems. She also had a hand in the calendar machine — may have been the driving force behind creating it.
I don’t think she’s a golem – she became immortal and was ripped from the world when the machine was activated.
She was ripped from the world when she tried to destroy the thing. That was the calendar machine’s defense mechanism; anyone trying to screw with it was banished to the demon world.
…which is why our heroines pulling it into the demon world was Step 1 in destroying it. Bud started crushing it and was banished to right where she already was.
I’m afraid I have to side with Fatuncle on this.
… and Platonix is correct. Jin and Maya and other timekeepers and politicians became immortal when the machine was activated. That was the first major thing that happened about 10500 years ago. After the priest turned on them, Maya got turned into a golem and took off with the machine. Much later (1450 years ago), she tried to destroy it and got banished to the demon realm. Jin was present that time, too.
Thanks, eschmenk; I was too tired to find the link.
Oops. Platonix was correct in the first paragraph, but I disagree with the second. The calendar machine was still intact when it was sucked into the demon realm through Monica. Bud chased after it in the next page. She crushed it in the demon realm where it was powerless because our concept of time doesn’t exist there.
NP Fatuncle. Get some rest. 🙂
Seems to me this question has come up before. As I recall, it was said then that she actually had herself burned alive and the priests made a golem out of her remains.
People aged more quickly 50,000 years ago. Ask your neighborhood physical anthropologist. Even in her 30s, Maya would be old enough to have collected some eye-bags for herself.
People aged more quickly just a couple hundred years ago. Life was hard for most and it wore the body out quickly. That’s why they had to start families at 14 and 15 if they were to have enough kids survive to help them through their old age. Old age starting in their 40s that is. Hundreds of years before that, you became an adult at 13, since you usually didn’t make it to 40. How things have changed.
…I was actually wondering about this, myself. The way it’s drawn, I could lean toward ‘age’ or ‘tired’… maybe it’s the romantic in me that wants to say Maya has been losing sleep trying to think of ways to caually pop that question.
Those short lifespans are very much a result of the tech level of the periods. I think we can safely presume that Lanthis’ civilization was significantly more advanced than those with ~40 year *average* lifespans.
Bear in mind that a large factor in that low average was high rates of infant mortality. Most of those who made it through that would have lived past 40.
OTOH, women in such societies did wind up middle-aged by 20.
am i right to feel worried that jins mum has her own place now.
jun seems more … stable when her mums with her…
Yeah, but with mom gone she Jin will be free to have Alan over more often, which also helps to keep her stable.
I love Mayas little hint of a fang i panel 2!
I still don’t see how Jin can be all soft and warm and squishy and cuddly for sex with Alan, yet be totally physically invulnerable.
She could be constructed similarly to the aliens in the Torchwood episode “Sleeper”. I’ll post links in another reply.
Warning, contains spoilers (hopefully only in the link):
They discover the tight-knit thing when they’re trying to work out why something was happening.
Wow, I didn’t think anyone was scarier than Jin… Well there is… Her mom.
Not that scary. I could see any number of other moms making similar comments. 🙂
Alternatively, her skin could be made up of a fine weave of some extremely stong substanse. Because it’s constructed out of threads it’s flexible but the material it’s made out of could be be very strong.
I thought they were made of clay? Granted, it’s MAGIC clay, so is apparently pretty indestructible. (Jin stopped a bus). And apparently it’s flexible enough that they don’t crack as they move around…
Actually, that’s interesting. How are they chemically? Can you etch them (apparently, Tepoz added a line to the writing on their bodies which inadvertently gave Monica control)
Can I call Bellisario’s Maxim on this one?
About time someone did ….
What is that?
Thank you very much.
The added line could have been placed on them by writing in ink, as opposed to etching.
Putting lines on GGG’s bodies against their will is just as bad as the Nazis branding people in the concentration camps!
(I hated to do that, but jwhouk already tried calling Bellisario’s Maxim, and that didn’t seem to work.)
Ruh-Roh! I see hijinks ensuing…
Hehe well guess that answers my question from yesterday 😀
I’m likin’ the look of Jin’s bed-head hair .
Well , Jin seems pretty haunt-free and well adjusted at the moment .
Is it because of the coffee ?
Or is that tea ?
Didn’t Tina once remark on Jin’s desire for teas, as opposed to coffee?
Oh , yeah . Now I remember .
She is a tea drinker, not a coffee woman.
Ack…too late to teh party. Oh well, still nice to know Mayahuel will still be around. Wonder what she’ll think of Alan?
This promises to be a fun ‘Meet the Parent’ 🙂
If he could handle some of the stuff Jin dumped on him, he aught to do OK with Maya, I think.
*sigh* I ought to have said “ought”. Is there aught to explain why I didn’t?
“Haveing your way with” that is SOoo 5 Minutes ago,Mom. BTW **NikkTemplar** notabad avatar.
No matter what, I’ll still go to BK and have it my way.
FINALLY, a breath of sanity is returning to Zin’s life.
