Gunnerkrigg is just doing the samsara of posting now. That's why the thing that set this current arc off was vore

Or maybe not samsara (I'm thinking about discursive cycles here in fandom) so much as the "as above so below" principle applied to shipping wars

We've all seen the horrors of the web. But you don't have to carry them with you. I hope that you are able to find some way to move past and heal.

I can't believe this comic's been running for 15 years and I never made the connection between Gamma and the Omega Device.

Was... the Omega Device mentioned before now?

The comic tends to go a *long* time between setting something up and knocking it down, so it's very possible I forgot.

It was first named (I think) during "Annie and the Fire" as something Anthony was doing for the Court. The symbol also appeared on Anthony's packet in the flashback chapter "Get Lost," so presumably he's been contributing to it since he was a student there. What exactly it is hasn't been revealed yet, I don't think, but if Zimmy is connected to it then it probably has something to do with the etheric research happening out at the S1 power station, which Zimmy recently mentioned has been shuttered since the research there had reached its conclusion.

Thanks for the post, Nich, I had no memory of the Omega Device either. Also, it's crazy that Tony has now been around for more than five years, considering how long we had to wait for him to appear at all.

I don't think it relates to Surma at all, since she was a last-minute replacement on the trip. I take your point about it being a clearance level, but even so, I think both symbols relate to the court and the project--"people at the Court involved with Omega" is how I would read it. When we see iconography related to Annie and Surma, it's usually along the lines of the ID credentials displayed during "The Realm of the Dead."

Oooh, valid point. Forgot the crown had been used for that.

The court sometimes calls Zimmy "Subject Zeta" so that's three Greek letters, two of which are associated with those weird girls.
