I legitimately have no idea at this point. Which is why I love this comic, you can't assume a damn thing. Maybe they're all the in the ether right now! Who knows?!

At the last minute Annie will split back in two and they'll work together to throw a comically large net over Jerrick

Nope, I think that's Renards body gone. Coyote would do something like this as a joke. Loup is the worst, though, and does this, because he is gross and jealous.

I really don't like this. I mean, I start to get really tired of Loup, because he is such a prick. But I'm also really not into this weird jealousy storyline, and where it might lead. I REALLY hope, this is not the way to awaken Loups humanity and empathy, because the way there will lead over horrible things, that I REALLY don't want to see in this comic.

Yeah, Loup has really gone on too long and I'm getting tired of this. Way too much upheaval and no real payoff, we still haven't even gotten a good explanation for why Annie merged again.

I continue to really, really dislike where this is going. Like, might take a break from the comic and come back to check in on it next year to see if I want to continue reading it.

I wonder if Robot either knew what was going to happen at this meeting, whatever it was, or either strongly suspected, and confronted Loup right when he did to interfere with it somehow?

It's just a big old puddle.

You could walk out like, 20 miles into it and not get your pants wet.

I think you've hit the nail on the head for why Gunnerkrigg has left me cold lately. Every chapter being a big story development is exhausting but it's also boring, because nothing ever gets time to fester and nothing registers as important. Chapter 72 ends with the gang discovering a new issue — they can't reach the Goose Bone — which seems like a major stumbling block; but then in the very next chapter, Loup kicks everyone out of the forest… and now they can reach the Goose Bone. Problem solved, I guess, but does it even count as one when it was resolved so easily? That's the most extreme example, but whole comic has been moving at this sort of pace lately.

(Apologies for replying to a month-old post, but I haven't been reading Gunnerkrigg daily for a while. I've been waiting for each chapter to end and then binging it.)

No worries, I've been debating doing the same thing. I am curious to see what is going on with the ocean but unless the opening page of the next chapter is Kat explaining it I'll probably start waiting. During that chapter with Zimmy where the ocean was sucked up by the towers it seemed like there was something else going on but I'd kind of forgotten about it by now.
