First appearance in strip 87.

Ok I have to ask. What kind of weapon is a trumpet? i suppose if you play badly enough it could do ear damage. Or is there an explaination lurking in a future episode?

He's a giant fan of the comic.


I CALLED IT

Why not? In this strip, stranger things have happened, and it wouldnt have been the first time its broken the fourth wall.

@wwhijr:

The trumpet is an Italian Spiderman thing. Check yesterday's blog posts for more info.

OMG! I was looking through the Official LEGO catalog and I was thinkning about a name for the girl in the pirate ship set, and I immediately thought Barnacled Betty! And then I saw her in the Strip and I thought I could see the future or something! Good job Chris!

P.S. You should try to make Scotch and Fox break her out and make her a main character!

Something smells fishy and it isn't just Barnacled Betty. :P

Nice one, I suspected there were more characters in stasis there.

Zepher said...

If you were able to wrap up a storyline, instead of just adding new ones, that would be nice :P

This could be good. I really like this arc so far, though it's a little confusing. I would really like it if you tied together things. For example... well, you left lots of things undone. What did happen to the hair? And what of Scotch's orginal story. We don't want more characters and plots, I just want them tied up.

(Sorry, I haven't read these in a while, and felt like giving my two cents on the last few monthes worth of episodes in one go.)

-Your still very loyal fan, Zeph

@zepher:

With the new Friday-only schedule, I'm really going to be able to focus on closing down those hanging plot threads. Don't fret!
