    Probably not in central Illinois, but Chigagoland is in northeast Illinois, which abuts Lake Michigan.

    Knowing that Tedd has or had an extensive collection of catgirl pinups and raunchy magazines, I go with "humanoid". Also, isn't it about time EGS had a mermaid?
  3. Story Tuesday, Jun 9, 2020

    It reminds me of The Last Supper because the party is split up in distinct groups. I think Dan put a lot of thought into this panel. Susan is sitting alone, further back than everyone, and looking away from everyone. Elliot and Tedd are sitting on one of the beanbags Ellen and Nanase are on the other beanbag. Five people are sitting on the couch, but only Grace and Ashley are touching. Justin and Sarah are looking to their left, either at Grace and Ashley or at Elliot and Tedd sitting together. Sarah is looking to her right, maybe at Ashley and Grace, or maybe looking away from Elliot with Tedd. Sarah also might have noticed how Ellen and Ashley are acting, but Sarah doesn't really know them that well. Or maybe Sarah is thinking about how Susan is sitting all alone and far from Sarah.

    Does anyone else think the middle panel looks like da Vinci's Last Supper? Also, TV trays. I don't think I've seen them since the Sixties.

    The Barbie doll was actually inspired by the Bild Lilli doll, merch for a cartoon hooker. That would kind of fit Diane's old reputation. And if you check out Dan's tumblr for this comic, he gave it the title "The Ultimate Strategy" which would kind of fit Grace making her boobs even bigger to distract Diane in the final panel.

    Out of fifteen girls in my first grade class in 1957, three of them were named "Sandra". So one kept "Sandra", another became "Sandy" and the third went by her middle name, "Jeanette".
  7. Story Thursday, Jun 4, 2020

    So, Susan hasn't told Diane that she's also a "Tiffany". I hope Grace's distraction isn't going to make Diane forget her unanswered question. And possibly that will lead to Susan finding out that Diane used to be a "Barbie"--she really liked that name when she was six.

    Well, I have one other MLP reference some of you might know about: In I Dream of a , there was one comic where Jean the genie was trying to seduce her master, and she transformed into a human Twilight Sparkle. BTW, Grace appeared in another Jeanie Bottle comic.
  9. Story Monday, Jun 1, 2020

    I've never seen even one episode of MLP. My only exposure to it is through fanart (quite a lot of it naughty) and Sinfest, a webcomic I've been following for a long time. The Devil is a main character in Sinfest, and he's a bronie.
  10. Story Monday, Jun 1, 2020

    We don't really know who Jay knows besides that nameless student she was with when Diane made her big speech at MSHS. She might have connections, or she might be just observant and good at research. I can see her as someone who checks out Charlotte's sites. I'm guessing now her plan is to concentrate on getting close to Grace and Diane at MSHS. Now that we know Grace is rather attracted to Jay, maybe Jay could propose a double date with their boyfriends. If Jay didn't already know Tedd was Grace's boyfriend, Grace just told her.
  11. Story Monday, Jun 1, 2020

    That could counter gossip, but the real issues, which none of them know about, is that Jay knows magic is real, already has seen Grace transform, and is an awakened wizard. Oh, and Jay thinks Tedd is a "wizard" and wants to meet him/her. I'm already three comments behind. I'll post now.
  12. Story Friday, May 29, 2020

    Whether Tedd is aware of the MV5 forms, it seems more magic is about to be used, and maybe that will make the door go WHOOSH! or at least (click).
  13. Story Wednesday, May 27, 2020

    When Pandora visits Adrian in the hospital, she lists four countries Adrian has lived in, maybe in order: The United States; England; France, and Germany. Maybe they're not in order; Germany wasn't really a nation until 1871, but this does establish that at one time Adrian wanted to fight for England. Not exactly great evidence for Adrian being an Anglophile; I kind of think Adrian became an Anglophile some time between Monday's and Wednesday's comic.
  14. Story Wednesday, May 27, 2020

    I'd love to see an exchange like that in canon, but it would need backstory. Susan got into the group as a friend of Sarah; I think it's established they met in middle school, the only time Sarah wasn't going to the same school as Elliot--and Sarah didn't seem to know Susan was a blonde until Susan revealed how her dad cheated on her mom. Noriko seems to have left before Tedd met Elliot. Now there's a way around this, but it's a long one: Let's suppose that Susan's dad was also had magic and that her mom knew about it but they kept it secret from their child. Then Dad pulls the brilliant move of bringing his mistress into their home while Mom is away. But until that time, Susan's mom knew Nanase's family because Susan's dad worked with them, and she's kept in touch with Nanase's mom, yet another secret Nanase's mom is keeping from Nanase. Since Susan got her fairy spell, and she likes having them around, and they are inconvenient to unsummon, it's not a stretch for Susan's mom to have noticed them by now. But perhaps having taken lessons from Nanase's mom, she pretends she knows nothing of them. Well, maybe...
  15. Story Wednesday, May 27, 2020

    I agree; I've posted before that the Agent Wolf version could be how he thinks Noriko looks. Wolf has probably never met her in person and might not even know she's Edward's ex-wife--although I'm pretty sure Agent Cranium knows from the deadly stare Cranium gives him after Wolf blurts out his "powerhouse" spiel.
  16. Story Wednesday, May 27, 2020

    For all we know, Noriko could be as hefty or heftier than her sister by now. Any votes for Noriko in the Expanded Edition? Noriko has appeared three times: with Adrian and the infant Tedd in a flashback comic when Agent Wolf was describing that real powerhouse that took down not-Tengo in Europe. when Nanase's mom asks Nanase what happened at the party the night before The last instance repeats the image Dan used before. Dan has never shown Noriko's face--just like he's never shown the face of Susan's dad. It may just be coincidence, but the flashback comic at the end of Hair begins with the same words over the first frame: "Many years ago..."
  17. Story Wednesday, May 27, 2020

    Or it might mean that the FWOOSH! tripped the circuit breakers. But Dan really went for more of a surrealistic, dreamlike look in this comic. Black panels fit that theme. He did make it clear in in the last two panels that the owner of that comely arm is levitating the mirror door.

  19. Story Wednesday, May 27, 2020

    Maybe it wasn't really dark. Dan only gives us the silhouette of one comely arm in the lass panel to represent the speaker. The point is to not identify her. Or him. You know, like that flashback that Susan had with her father's face blacked out. Maybe the mirror door was supposed to be something like Tedd's glove--not the gauntlet like Lord Tedd's but the simpler glove he uses to enchant his watches. Adding a sort of magical battery to store up energy (which is something the gauntlet does) sounds like a pretty good idea--if it's reliable.
  20. Story Wednesday, May 27, 2020

    You thought of Noriko because Nanase eats to restore magic energy. You don't really believe it's Edward, do you? Besides, that arm in the last panel sure looks girly to me.
  21. Story Wednesday, May 27, 2020

    That fails the cheesecake test.
  22. Story Wednesday, May 27, 2020

    Four enchantments. I've speculated that the mirror door might be a portal, or a surveillance device. At any rate, it's going to do something no one in the basement expects, maybe as soon as Friday's comic.
  23. Story Wednesday, May 27, 2020

    I'm not. Nanase's mom wouldn't have been living in the Verres house. Actually, I suspect Noriko was already increasing her caloric intake because she was pregnant with Tedd. The big disappointment wouldn't come until after Tedd was born.
  24. Story Wednesday, May 27, 2020

    It was the cheesecake, wasn't it? I could swear your topic didn't show up when I made mine.
  25. Story Monday, May 25, 2020

    3S Larry is definitely the Shaggy Stooge. EGS Larry is more the Stan Laurel to EGS Rich's Oliver Hardy, at least by physical types. Wednesday's comic is up, and I started a topic for it.
