Hey folks, kind of a short page this week --- a little slow in the creation process lately... working through it though...

May be short, butt packs a punch
If anything, we have been spoilt by having such large pages in the past :)

Personal prediction: Mirby will lose the first round, she has far too much anger to focus properly, just look at her in the last panel

Agree much anger but it is focused. Bitchlock will know she has to fight for he life for no quarter will be given.

@Dragonrider: no, Mirby isn't focused, she is letting her emotions (namely, anger and rage) dominate
Look at the difference in stance: Mirby is really leaning in and scowling, whereas Bitchlock is standing firm and outwardly calm

And if you don't believe Bitchlock hasn't been anticipating this moment, and planning for it, ever since Mirror 'ran away', then you are doing Bitchlock a grave disservice (she's evil, not stupid)

Short page is better than no page, and to be honest, it's probably good that it's short. The fight is gonna be quite dramatic :)

I still have the suspicion there's some kind of switcheroo going on here somehow.

It might just be the angle, but something seems.. off about Salock's face.

..too young looking.

@Mysto: i have to agree with < ..
i also thought something off...

@Mysto: how old do you think Granny-lock is? o_O
Go back a few pages (page 16 and earlier) and she looks the same: she has always looked young for over 200 hundred years (must be the Vay genes, or the blood of the virgins she bathes in :P )

It's possible the 'loose' hair is throwing you off a bit

Three Card Monte I was thinking, when I saw the last page, that Bitchlock would be the kind of person to use illusion and swap out herself for Tirin. Tirin takes the big hit that Mirby leads with. And as Mysto and robnot have pointed out, there's something wrong with the combatant's face on this page, so, things may be about to get grim.

I think I know the difference that's caught my attention... Salock's eyes.

I went back a bunch of pages and Salock always had slight bags around her eyes and wrinkles at the corners. Those seem to be missing here.
Guesticus (Guest) August 10th, 2019, 4:58 am
@Mysto: the 'bags' could be a result of her squinting, whereas on this page, she has her eyes wide open
Mysto (Guest) August 10th, 2019, 8:24 am
@Guesticus: Eh.. like I said it could be the angle, or the lighting, or my overactive imagination, any number of things.

Look at her face in the cast lineup at the top of the page; doesn't it look older?

Anyhoo, we shall see.

@Mysto: That's because the drink Salock gave Tirin the Younger was a potion to transfer the essence of her into Salock. Her younger appearance (compare, especially, with her Cast image) is because she's gained some of T the Y's youth and vigor from the transfer. It's also why T the Y now looks like she's in a trance--it's not a trance, it's that only her body and enough spirit to keep her body alive are present.
If Dabney wins too decisively, T the Y dies.
Oh, well. That would settle any time paradoxes that might be in the offing.

@E Hines: it's not Dabs, it's Mirby
