Someone mentioned that he might be Bill Heterodyne. I don't think so, but...

...what if he is A Hetrerodyne? Some younger brother exiled (voluntarily) when the older brother came into posession of Der Castle. But before he left, he took a good sized swig of The Dyne. After recovering, he took off and has been hiding for... years. He is not in the line of succession, so he isn't an heir, but he is still a member of the family.

From what I understand, the authors have stated Higgs is not Bill or his brother, beyond that, who knows?

As for today's comic...

Props to those who accurately forecast elements of today's comic.

And I must say - what with the various webcomics that easily fall behind schedule, it never ceases to amaze me how the Foglios manage to continue producing such a wonderfully-colored, drawn, and narrated strip like clockwork, three times a week.

I dunno... I have a growing feeling that Higgs is this universe's equivalent of Chuck Norris.

Higgs does not take damage from being impaled by a sword.  The sword takes damage from impaling Higgs.  And then probably apologizes afterwards.

The only way Higgs could possibly be more unstoppable would be if he had a beard, so that one could joke: There is no chin behind Higgs' beard.  There is only another fist.

Awesome.  The Bogey man checks his closet for Higgs at night.

Anyway, very interesting stuff so far.  I'm waiting for Gil to get his rear-end out of that stupid plant.  He's one of my favorite characters, so I want him to get back into the story!

Really, if you think about it, how else could they do it?

With mad science, I wouldn't be surprised if they used an engine powered by solar energy panels that caught sunbeams harvested from cucumbers.  And that would be the simple option.

I so want one of those now.  :)

Also, don't those two make a cute couple?

This just goes to show...

Comic strip episodes dedicated to library research don't make for good commentary.  Give me a giant cat-robot-juggernaut ride any day.

So, uh... which two make for the cute couple?  I'll confess - I don't even remember the names of the on-panel characters at this point.

What is it with mad scientists and this kind of thing?

For obvious reasons, I am reminded of two quotes that almost, but not quite, fit...

Dr. Frederick Frankenstein: Are you saying that I put an abnormal brain into a seven and a half foot long, fifty-four inch wide GORILLA?
-Young Frankenstein

and

Donovan: Dr. Slate, next time you consider downloading the Little Engine That Could into a weapon of mass destruction...don't.

I wonder if this will stop any of the Jagers from pursuing her so vigorously.  Or if this will simply add to the attraction.

ah DuMed... are you going to "live" up to your name?  I hope not, I like him.

Well, no matter what happens, I think I can safely say that this is not going to end well form someone.

On the downside, I kinda hope they start consolidating all these characters soon.  All this constantly skipping around is starting to get tiresome. 

And isn't Gil still inside the plant?

Clearly, this plant consumes its food at the Speed of Plot.

Zola did say that it took a very long time.  Of course she was planning to get him out a lot quicker than she's doing, too.

There's a reason Moloch has grown on me.   :)

Now, how long until this goes all pear-shaped?  I'm gonna give it two maybe three panels tops.

Well, since the main idea in today's strip is that VonPinn's mind gets transferred into the dangerous clank, that's probably a safe bet.  But one of the more entertaining outcomes might involve multiple mind switcheroos as a result of the experiment going wrong.  Probably not, but it's fun to imagine.

Why is the history of the Muses continuing to get entangled in that of the Heterodynes? I mean, other than that the Foglios like them?

And where is Othar, anyway?

Well, we know there's a prophesy connecting the Storm King's heirs to the Heterodynes. We know that at some point in the future Agatha's going to be involved in time traveling. I've been wondering if that's somehow connected to all the Muses and Storm King stuff.
