Not really off, but very angry. If you go back a few pages, you can see that he looks like he normally does. I'm still waiting for him to finally sock Tony and we might get to see that soon!

But in Tony's defense, Annie is just taking responsibility for her mistake. Which is quite big of her. She could have just kept quiet about Jeanne and no one would have been the wiser.

I'm aware that Elgamore is "wrong" and Tony is "right" but that doesn't mean I wouldn't be happy if the next page was just Elgamore caving Tony's stupid face in.

Tom knows what his readers respond to, so I'm sure that the comics final chapter will be 30 pages or so of every character punching Tony right in the damn face.

Kind of like the end of Evangelion, just with slightly more tactile golf claps.

The face-punching treatment has been previously shown to have a positive effect on Tony. We have every reason to believe that further face-punching would be beneficial.

Me: Huh, Annie looks like she's taking fashion tips from Pokemon trainers
Also me: Fair enough, this whole princess mononoke sort of thing is usually what happens right before she'd face the elite four anyway

Scroll down the comments on the latest comic and guess how many people might have some kind of colorblindness: https://www.gunnerkrigg.com/?page=20...nts=1#comments

That's them walking through the shield barrier, right?

Pretty sure.

I'm afraid it is indeed not clear enough, to the point Tom had to clarify it on twitter.

I see seas of blue
And clouds of white
Bright blessed days
And dark sacred nights
And I think to myself...

...how the **** do I get down from here?

I love it when Gunnerkrigg goes full Dragonball Z.

But I am OPEN to Gunnerkrigg going full One Punch Man.





Come on Tom.

You KNOW you wanna.

Normally I would be open to Gunnerkrigg Going full JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, but in this case I would rather avoid "After 1,000 years, Jones finally stopped thinking".

Nah, Jones will come back down. She's going to need new clothes, but she'll be coming down.

In a related note, I'm glad Parley and Jimmy Jams didn't go with, who knows what crap Ysenote would pull.

Okay, now I really want to know the story of the previous times Jones went into orbit.
