Hey y’all, I got great news! I’m going to be at PAX PRIME!
The fine folks at Kickstarter invited me to their PAX Prime table to hang out with some other talented folks who funded their games with Kickstarter! How exciting! I’ve never been to PAX before, so I’m really excited!
So if you’re going to be at PAX stop by the Kickstarter booth and maybe pick up a copy of Borogove? That would be cool. :) :)
Madam U is not pleased.
Wait… She’s mad because Lily continuously visits her store without buying anything, but when she finally does decide to buy something, she refuses to sell it to her?
She probably doesn’t want to enable a troublemaker, she’d (probably) gladly sell her something else, something she couldn’t cause chaos or harm with.
well there’s you’re problem, she wount buy anything that she can’t cause chaos with. What for?
Lily’s expressions on this page encompasses all of the world’s enthusiasm into one being.
Panel 5: Utter Glee! :D
Dean so totally reminds me of The Fonz from Happy Days. Just sayin’.
Definitly looks like the mighty Fonzarelli dressed in grey fur.
Love all these characters! So happy to see Madame U again!
Wait, her face fell at “Not for sale”, not at “£250”?? She’s got money to prank with!
Well, her face isn’t exactly pleased in panel 4.
Oh my god.
It is the best face. I actually can’t handle how amazing her face is.
I HATE pranksters. The last person who tried to prank me ended up with both arms in casts.
So, how does the plot develop from here? It’s not the sort of display case where she could reach in and snatch the talisman if Madame U opened it to, say, sell her that competitively-priced geode. Maybe, with Madame U’s mercenary nature, she’s just waiting for a suitable offer…
– “I’ll give you five hundred, then.”
– “Done! Just don’t say I didn’t warn you.”
Or maybe she’ll go for the old stratagem…
– “Hey, Ike! If I give you 250 quid, will you go into Prester John’s and buy that bugbear talisman that’s in the counter cabinet for me?”
That’s like… $400. Lily has money to burn.
Or, alternatively, the reason she has money to spend is because she comes into Madame U’s shop all the time and sees all the stuff she wants to buy, sets money aside, and forgets about it.
Is it me, or in the second to last panel does Madame U look like Captain Picard?
Her face seems to hover somewhere between Captain Picard and Magneto (aka Patrick Stewart and Ian McClellan)through the whole comic.
Aaand now all of her lines are being read with Patrick Stewart’s voice In my head. :)
She seems to be eastern European, so somebody like one of the Gabor sisters might provide a more appropriate voice.
Personally, I give her the “wise and mysterious old Gypsy lady” voice, since Kory said in the cast info that she has a strong Romanian accent.
August 3, 2017 bing search says 250.00 British pounds sterling equals 328.28 USA dollars. Maybe the exchange rate changed in five years (since diTaykan’s comment), or Gorgon lady changes prices if she dislikes a customer. I’m still not clear on the morals of Kory’s beast people.
D: id have thought the Avalon would have its own currency, like mythical tokens made from an ancient magical tree or something D:
I imagine that enough residents of the LA earn money from jobs outside it that the Avalon having its own currency is far more trouble than it’s worth.
The facial expressions are just awesome.
This encounter foretells of great tribulations in the near future. Followed with a great “I told you so”.
I get the feeling that Madam U wishes she wasn’t blind in this one. ^,,^
OMG! You’ll be at PAX?! That’s soooooo cool! :D
Is Dean Gnoll, Jackelwere, or Werewolf? I’m guessing from the company he keeps, he AIN’T Moondog.
*spits out drink* Did she just say she put NAIR in a bugbear’s shampoo?!
Crash, that must’ve hurt!
…I just realized what she’s done with her hair. It is FANTASTIC.
