Annie looks like she's having an epiphany about her school career right about now.

Thanks, guys, I just spent all of the time I should have been asleep reading Gunnerkrigg Court.

I kind of dig how much ambiguity is going on with everything all the time.

And Robot. Everything about Robot.

I'm on chapter 22 of this and it's good, but I want to read it in the book format, I think. Maybe I can save that for later...

Robots great and all, but he was never set on fire so that he could punch things more effectively.

I read a bunch of this on Saturday, up to chapter 40. Man, I forget when it was exactly, but it seemed to really pick up with its plot and become super interesting.

Nothing's going to go wrong here.

This will end well.

I bet everything will be fine.

Oh geez. I do not know what's going to happen, but I'm pretty sure I'm not going to be happy about it.

I'm wagering there's something under that cloak.

Huh. I kind of wonder if it's regular stronger or supernatural stronger. Mr. Dragonslayer over there has been shown to do things that should be physically impossible for a normal human, like crazy superman jumps and junk.

It is a science fact that Gunnerkrigg court and DBZ take place in the same universe.

So regular stronger AND supernatural stronger are both achieved in the same way: by practicing punching a LOT.

Yeah, I'd say it's almost certainly the latter.

Default THERE IS NO WORK THAT CANNOT BE VASTLY IMPROVED BY THE INCLUSION OF KRILLIN

But like, between the Capsule Corp logo on stuff, the fact that Jack can Fly, and every single page in the bowling chapter, is it REALLY a surprise that Elgamore and Parley used the hyperbolic time chamber?

Now all I want is one of the guest lecturers to be a friendly 4-foot-tall fellow who speaks at length about the importance of courage and perseverance even when securing victory by yourself is hopeless.

Perhaps with one panel of him shaking Jones's hand, and when finding it impossible to move, smiles and goes "Oh hey, my wife's a cyborg too!".
