Yay! Its back again! I stagger my reading of it to Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday cause there aren't enough good webcomics on those days, so I am not the best person to lead a real time discussion, but it really needs a thread. So in Monday's we see the mysterious return of the dark figure. (linky)

Who is starting to sound really, really desperate.

Also, is it just the art upgrade, or does Ellen's green ray seem more... jeeze, what is a same word to use? Powerful? More powerful then usual?

Word of God = Art Evolution.

Although that "How is that keeping a low profile?" is probably the funniest thing I've heard Grace say since...

well, the mopping incident, anyway.

Is Grace material for a Cloudcukoolander?

Pffh. I have the constant entry pimping of this series to thank for me archive binging a few weeks ago. Not that I'm complaining.

I do like the Word Of God at the bottom. It's insightful, plus you can see him admit to handwaving.

More exposition, but I have to appreciate that Dan puts quite a bit of thought into how stuff works in his comic, unlike some other fantasy-ish comics (I'm looking at you, Mookie). Also, teacher-Nanase looks cute.

But then, I always think Nanase looks cute. I like redheads, okay?

I think that in the past few months, the strip has improved by a buttload. It also got less weird, in a bad way, and became more weird in a good way.

Although the latest exposition reads somewhat like a justification for future fanservice and mildly crude humour.

Has anyone seen this recently? The art style has really come a long way, and it's amazing what difference a few shadows make.

Well-done dramatic shadows are good, yes, especially for the dramatic turn that the Rock-Entombed Wizard subplot, well, *is*.

The Strip Slays are pretty... ecchi... for this latest strip...

Funny thing, I never registered on the forums, but I pop by to read the slays, especially when Dan hits one of his slow periods.

New comic!

Didn't expect this. Not so ridiculous claim now, is it?

I love this comic.

Does any one else think that Nanasa's mom is going to react badly to this. She is not the type that typically is okay with things like lesbianism.

I think that's the obvious solution. The tricky thing here would be a subversion. Where she accepts this.

We've already seen that Nanase overestimates how much her mother disapproves of her lifestyle. Most likely Mrs. Kitsune will be moderately displeased, but won't outright freak out. Or she'll already be aware of her daughter's preferences.

Also, she seems to be more than meets the eye.

Depending on how Mr. Verres plays his cards, this may end up blowing up in Assistant Director Liefeld's face.

I'm glad Dan is at least cognizant of how ridiculous that guy's musculature looks. In the last panel, it looks like he's using his coat to smuggle huge stacks of pancakes out of an IHOP. Better Than a Bare Bulb, I guess.

So the masquerade seems to be on the edge, and wild mass guess I kinda think this is what Pandora meant by "Destroy[ing] the world as it is now known."
