    Ah, Agatha Heterodyne, first seen on page 11 of GURPS IOU back in 1995.
  2. Story Monday February 18, 2019

    Yeah, canines. "Dey chust vant to zee a leedle dranzvormay-zhun…"

    You mean like that mugger at the mall?
  4. Story Monday February 18, 2019

    Grace noticed that Smoke's pitch went up and down as he spoke. This could help her identify Camdin in his (relatively) normal form. (Normally abnormal?)
  5. Story Monday February 18, 2019

    I think somewhere in canon Grace says that as a squirrel she's at least a little afraid of dogs. Come to think of it, has there ever been a dog in EGS? I kind of think Dan is a cat person.
  6. Story Monday February 18, 2019

    So, what's it to be? Tiny squirrel? Sleepy-time squirrel-girl? Something with talons, horns, and three tails? Probably one of the first two if Grace doesn't want to ruin her clothes.
  7. Story Wednesday February 13, 2019

    If Camdin doesn't fully form soon he's likely to see something like this form. Grace doesn't seem to be scared like Sam in the last panel, but Grace is concerned about Sam by now and would try to protect him if she saw Smokey Camdin as a threat. If Grace believes Camdin knows they both can transform, I think at the least she'll bring out her antennae.
  8. Story Wednesday February 13, 2019

    Follow the link Dan put in his comments: It's Camdin, Luke's smokey friend. I'm guessing his backstory is that he followed Grace the super-chick.
  9. Story Monday February 11, 2019

    I remember hearing about a study that seemed to show that on average women with large bosoms did have higher IQ scores. I think it was on Wait Wait Don't Tell Me. But today I actually Binged it (I'm running Edge since a bug ruined my Chrome last month) and I kind of suspect Hachi's idea came from here. While I doubt Pamela Anderson's IQ is up there with Einstein's or Hawking's, there was a woman with naturally large mammary glands who was a genius: Jayne Mansfield. Her daughter Mariska Hargitay doesn't seem to be light on smarts. And I now realize I've posted on the wrong webcomic site. This was for I Dream of a Jeanie Bottle.
  10. Story Monday February 11, 2019

    When Elliot made a date with Ashley about two weeks after breaking up with Sarah, Grace thought it was too soon. So how does Grace really feel about Sarah dating after a little more than two weeks later?
  11. Story Friday February 1, 2019

    Finally got to see how Sam looked like as a girl.
  12. Story, Wednesday January 30, 2019

    Grace being Grace, I expect her to want to tell Sam he should really talk to Sarah, even if she's not sure it's the right thing.

  14. Story Monday January 28, 2019

    Ah, yes, Victor von Hip, the King of Pamphlets. Somehow Sarah had one of his pamphlets on the same day Grace met Victor, even though Sarah goes to a different high school. Gee, maybe Victor even printed the pamphlets Adrian was passing out on that fateful Friday Susan first met her great-by-who-knows-how-many-times grandfather. Next thing you know we'll be hearing again about Randal.
  15. Story, Friday Jan 25, 2019

    The lights were every other Immortal on Earth forced to cast Pandora's final spell. I guess that should have included Voltaire. So, what next? Well, that last panel could provide some awkwardness if there are any witnesses. Heck, if anyone overheard the conversation. I'm guessing there will be some kind of complication soon because the last panel seems like a natural way to end this arc. But Dan didn't end it, or at least didn't tell us this was the end.
  16. Story Friday January 18, 2019

    My very first reaction on seeing that comic was that Sam was really worried about hurting Sarah's feelings. That kind of concern for someone you just met pretty much defines love at first sight, at least for me.
  17. Story Friday January 18, 2019

    Does Sam even think Tedd is a girl or a boy at this point? Sam told Tedd he might want to keep "Tess" in mind at the end of their round at the card tournament, so Sam thought Tedd might be a girl even if he had a masculine name, and Sam just might have picked up that Larry and Rich thought Tedd was a girl. Sam might have also thought that Tedd might be a girl in a boy's body. Going out on a limb, Sam could have been attracted to Tedd. Sam has probably had a lot of practice now being attracted to people but being careful not to get into any real dating situation. I'm guessing Sam is attracted to girls, but this being EGS, I'm not ruling out some attraction to boys, too, even boys who are not Noah.
  18. Story Friday January 18, 2019

    I'm wondering if Sam knows Grace is Tedd's girlfriend? I kind of doubt it because Sam has only seen Tedd once (that we know of) and Sam didn't notice that Tedd changed genders if he's the one who sent that message to Elliot. Sarah could have mentioned Grace is Tedd's girlfriend on their not-date or over the web or even over the phone (although the phone and the web are getting harder and harder to tell from each other.) Grace probably will want to tell Tedd and Sarah that she's told Sam and why, so a get-together for the quartet sounds like a pretty good idea, possibly after Grace tells Sam something like "I really shouldn't tell you anything else about this until I talk to a couple of people."
  19. Story Wednesday January 16, 2019

    Good save. Bad idea to forget any woman's birthday, especially a woman with dragon magic.
  20. Story Wednesday January 16, 2019

    Sam says he found the note from Pandora when he woke up "two Fridays ago". Working back from current story time, Monday evening, in this comic: Saturday, two days ago: Sam ran away when he spotted Grace at the mall. One Friday ago (three days ago): Sam avoided showing up at Salty Crackers. Two Fridays ago: Found the note first thing in the morning. Went on the not-date with Sarah that evening, possibly transformed. Also that evening, magic changed. Three Fridays ago: Sam met Sarah. The earliest date for this would have been January 10th since the events in Identity took at least a week of school to play out and occur after the end of the Christmas-New Years break. So one Friday ago it had to be at least January 24th and it must be at least January 27th in this comic. I hope Dan doesn't forget Valentine's day; it might not be more than a few years away in our time.
  21. I was reading through The Secret of Sam for the umpteenth time and I came again to Grace and Sarah talking about how much Justin and Sam like talking about how bad the Star Wars prequels were. And that got me to thinking: Is that a clue that EGS is taking place before Episode VII was released? Or is this a perhaps happier alternate universe where Episode VII and (especially) Episode VIII were never made?And perhaps not Star Trek Discovery, which didn't even rate a mention in the NPs? Since EGS is a long-running comic that doesn't advance too far ahead in time, I can understand why too many references to pop culture might be wisely avoided, but I wish they weren't entirely ignored sometimes.
  22. Story Friday January 11, 2019

    That sounds like something Pandora could and would do, but I doubt if the placement of the third text box is accidental. The premise of the breast pockets is, after all, to disguise Sam's breasts. What's behind that text box? Could be: Breast pockets on the black shirt, disguising breasts. No pockets, but Sam has bound his breasts like any number of females passing as males in anime and manga. No pockets and a flat, male chest. No pockets because Sam has revealed his secret to Sarah--and neither Grace nor Ellen knows this yet. Sarah cares about Sam and would want to keep his secret unless she felt there was a compelling reason not to. It's also canon that the duration of transformations depends on what the transformee feels about that transformation. As long as the transformee likes the transformation, it's permanent. The sticker for Sam would be that some people, certainly his family, know that he's physically and biologically female, so unless he's ready to reveal his power, he'll want to be "normal" for them.. But maybe by now Sam has learned to manage his transformations, since he felt comfortable coming into the comic shop even though he was spooked by Grace earlier in the week.
  23. Story Friday January 11, 2019

    "Might suggest"? ... where was that "understatement of month" image … In the third panel of TSoS-04 Sam doesn't have his shirt-of-many-pockets on. This was in a flashback to the first date between Sarah and Sam. However, Dan "might" have chosen a significant placement for the text box containing "A tacky, terrible gift."
  24. Story Monday January 14, 2019

    How much of this did Gordon overhear?
  25. Story Friday January 11, 2019

    Very plausible' Pandora did mark Sarah and Tedd at the comic shop the same night Sarah met Sam. The open shirt might suggest that Sam actually has a male body now.
