    I can't see how that would work without actually killing the witnesses, and that assumes that the Dad's plan is one that makes sense and is fully thought through. Considering his track record, that's a pretty generous assumption.

    Today's girl genius shows us that there's a career in their universe of tying your consciousness to a rather large being's expanded consciousness.

    I wonder what the benefits are considering its effect on your sanity

    My approach to writing these comics is to make pages that are a hybrid between a print edition and a straight-up strip. So you get a little punchline payoff and some good panel density ("no splashes" is the rule), but also, they're designed in two-page spreads to be printed, maybe, one day (if anyone ever wants to). There is a conflict between advancing the plot and telling a joke; you can't throw away a page on a scene transition in the same way you can in print, with the next page just seconds away. That sucker is up when fresh for, as currently, forty-eight hours. And at the same time, you can't crash from scene to scene too much between pages because it won't make sense in print, and if you stick an extra page in for print to make things a bit clearer, it throws off the balance of all your double-page spreads and big-reveal (haha) page turns. So you have to put two boring pages in. Mind you, I think this email I'm currently writing might be a considered a boring page so perhaps I know nothing.

    Today's page is an unavoidable scene transition. I did my best within the constraints of the format. I jazzed it up with the following:
    1. Picture of Queen Victoria with little devil horns
    2. Carefully designed new character (see fig 1)
    3. Magus Tom Pendennis reading very interesting-looking book
    4. Under-table angle worthy of The Magnificent Ambersons
    5. Person in fedora. TRAY mysterious?

    FIG 1.

    Now a page that could have been, and let me put this plainly, dull as ditchwater, is instead as rich as fruitcake. My gift... to you.

    The Patreon post for this page says "HP's design actually has several little tweaks".

    Directly comparing this page and an older page, the only things I'm seeing is that she lost the shoulderpads and her gloves are longer.

    I think her outfit and Undine's are slowly starting to look more alike. Undine started by adding the puffed sleeves to her outfit, now HP is joining in by having her gloves extend similar to Undine's, and as mentioned removing the shoulder pads. I wonder if we're at 'final form' team uniform or if there are more adjustments to be made.

    I wonder what their team name will be.

    so the entire cast is going to be kidnapped by the two worst criminals ever

    Whatever the rereboot is called, I don't want to know what it is. It took me months to stop caring about QC, but I can't seem to stop reading DOA.

    Heartwater is a disease of domestic and wild cattle, deer, sheep and goats. It is caused by the bacteria Ehrlichia ruminantium (air-lick-EEah ROO-mi- NAN-tium), is spread by infected ticks, and commonly causes death of infected animals.

    I would be fully on board for the next weeks worth of comics just being the entire cast being tossed one by one onto each other

    I would be more chill about this situation if Willis hadn't listed a mysterious trigger warning at the start of the chapter. Is that even a thing? Some elements of this may be triggering (to who? for what reasons?) He says "a sustained sense of danger" but not "thrasher film" (did he mean slasher? isn't thrasher like a skateboarding term?) stuff.
