So! Despite the cloak, The Platinum Priestess seems to be able to sense Spooky’s magic! The question is: what is she going to do about it? Will she attack Spooky… or will she choose a more vulnerable (but equally fluffy) target? Who is this “master”? And what exactly will happen when she’s able to reach him?

Tune in this Saturday to find out! Hope to see you there! 😀

That Woman (the Platinum Priestess) is one ruthless villain … Think she gives lessons on odd-numbered Tuesdays in being mean and nasty at the local community college.


Is that Cory in the far middle distance of panel 3 in full view of the Priestess if she just turns around? The guy with the shock halo? Or is that someone new entering the story? Cory, you’re supposed to hide. If you’re not careful, you won’t be tied to a dumb ol’ tree. You’ll be tied to that altar.


All she wants to do is save the world. Well, almost all.

Yes, it is. Only we can see the shock halo, though. :slight_smile:


PP seems so matter-of-fact in discussing what to do with these children. Chilling.


For her, there is no reason why children should deserve any special regard.


“I sense a disturbance in the Force…” stage whisper Go Cory go!
I like the b&w pages, I can amuse myself mentally filling in the colors XD
Spooky better hurry with charging up his Hyper Beam…

Apologies if this was already discussed - but PP doesn’t look like she went back NEARLY so far as Anni - certainly not 14 or so.

It hasn’t been discussed yet, and I think you’re right. I’m guessing it has something to do with her being somewhat older than Anni to begin with, but there could be other reasons.

But will she sense it in time to do anything about it?

True. Definitely something worth exploring.

Lots of other reasons. Or perhaps, one really good one.

Foreshadowing! But what could it be? :thinking:

Maybe Sircea was never old in the first place. Maybe she’s always been youthful and used an illusion of age so Duncan would think that was why she needed his help. Maybe she pretended to be weak and old to mirror his own fears.

Hmm. I really like how you’re thinking about that, David. :slight_smile:
