Nope. Pages end in increments of 25, so we've still got another five to go.

Followed the link to the 2010 comic, and... what. What is even going on there?

Well, no one ever said that Dan Shive lacks perseverance, AHR, so we'll probably climb through the ranks over the course of time.

But what is going on in that 2010 comic? I'm not even sure what out of the many confusing things I should be reacting to. Is it the massive wall of text in place of a worthwhile panel? Is it the fact that a person I can't identify who may or may not be Elliot is freaking out about looking too much like Ellen? Is it the fact that they're trying and failing to come up with a reasonable explanation for why television is worthless for identifying people?

What is going on there?

AHR:

That is indeed Elliot, who is transformed.

Elliot and Ellen need to practice getting rid of excess magic. For Ellen, that means beam firing. For Elliot, that means turning into a girl. See here

Previously, Elliot was fighting a fire man as a female version of himself. See here

Here he transforms into velma.

Also, on a much more important note:

Holy Crudmuffins! EGS Fora drama is exactly like Tv Tropes drama!

167: Now, I'm a guy and single so I don't really know about female biology and may be wrong here but... isn't PMS that thing that happens when your hormone levels start going down at like, age 50 or something? Is there really some huge danger of him getting it over the course of the next month? Are you guys both asleep at the wheel or am I completely mistaken here? Hell, this isn't even the first time he's made a JOKE about female Elliot getting PMS so I'm amazed AHR hasn't started ranting at him yet about insensitivity or at least mentioned his wrongness.

PMS. Pre-Menstrual-Syndrome. You are thinking of menopause.

Alright. I still get the feeling it's not one of those topics guys are supposed to have joking privileges about.
