You obvioulsy never had to follow a Marvel comic storyline in the '60s. It was good practice...

Eh, I read "Looking for Group".  Those guys could teach Foglio lessons in long, drawn-out storylines...

Never read that one.

Still, I'm not really dissagreeing with you.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again...

Every story is better when you throw in a Jaeger.

I won't spoil it, go look:

Two years?!  This storyline is going to drag out another two years?!

On the plus side...

Is it just me, or is the figurehead on of the boats from yesterday's strip a What's New dragon?  Not that I'm complaining, mind you.

Yeah, the second one looks like Growlf (if that was his name).

Bill, still waiting on issue #2 of D'Arc Tangent...

I just realized, we haven't seen the wasp eater in over two months, right before they opened the vault with

.

Being as they're now in rather skimpy outfits, with nowhere for it to hide, does that mean Agatha has somehow been freed from that bond?  I don't think Phil would make an oops for that long.

Yeah, it would help if we had some subtitles.

Years back, someone translated their speech, but it was guesswork.

I know there were a couple times that Kaja translated the jaeger speech, but that's at least readable as-is.

I saw that. Before that was Sam Starfall, a Blue Meanie, and maybe The Bride of Frankenstein, Yu Go Oh, and Elseworlds Aquaman and Meara.

Ah!  I saw the trident, but didn't look much further.  I must have been in a bit of a hurry when I read that one.  That's definitely the Bride, still in her wrappings.  And we both missed Hellboy in the panel with the blue meanie.

I'm a member of the Girl Genius Yahoo Group, and that was one of he first things anyone pointed out.

There is a guy (or two) in the lawst panel from Wednesday's cartoon who is probably someone. There is a small critter hanging on his leg saying things.

Yeah, I saw that critter, but the appearance and what he was saying didn't seem familiar, so I figured it was referencing something I didn't know.  (I can't know *all* the content....and I probably wouldn't want to)

I feel like I should know who the dark, crow-looking person in that panel is, but it's not coming to mind.

So, the Sharktooth story is over, but I'm not quite sure of the significance of the last panel.

I thought that too. I wonder if Sharktooth was a Greenclaw before he drank the Jagerdraught...

We know Augie had a life before being a Jager; he had kids.
