Yay, he might even get through the portal at last! :)

Can we identify all casters in the background? I find those heading to the portal with Jojo the most interesting.

"they seem to be carrying /opinions/"... LOL. Thats just classic. :)

So, we know for sure the portal is up. We know what Wanda doesnt know about turning Decrypted. And we know that things are about to take a turn for the interesting. :)

So much here!

Jeftichew's got friends... more Carneymancers by the look of them.

No other decrypted have turned... yet.

And is that... a gobwin caster?

You know, I hadn't quite noticed Wanda's change in costume up 'til now. Looking back on the last few strips from Issue 2, I've seeing here in places I hadn't before. Huh.

Just stagemancers, I'd wager. One of them looks more like a hat magician to me.

Also spotted: Doctor Robotnik, and what might be a pair of protagonists from Journey (but probably isn't).

I think you're right. "Strong man in scarf" still looks carneymancer to me. Zatanna costume should be hat magic, as you say. Can anyone call bland suit guy? Or guess at rhymeomancer by extension, saying he pulled a balanced group from his kingdom?

I'd say so. It'd be nice to see one of them in action, I wonder who's side they'd take, if either?

The more I look at that last guy, the more I keep thinking of Freud...

I'll QFT both of the above. Jack is best.

P.S. Who's the guy in the bee costume (last panel)?

EDIT: Hah! Just spotted Johny Carson as Carnac the Magnificent, the predictamancer. Well done.
"Do it?" Dan, I'm not a Republic serial villain. Do you seriously think I'd explain my master-stroke if there remained the slightest chance of you affecting its outcome?

I did it thirty-five minutes ago.

Anyone else look at the rainbow robed quadruplets in panel 4 and wonder if someone has been playing a little Magicka?

Also, hello, folks. Kinda lame for a first post by a long-time lurker, but there you go.

That would be Ash and Brock in the center of the large panel. And I almost think the one to Jojo's left is Slash. Have we seen him before?

It's good to see Wanda again. :)

And good to see the order to punch through, messy though it'll be.

I think the muscular guy with the scarf is Freddy Mercury and the guy with the hat might be Slash... also I think I see Darth Vader going to the bluish portal

Did I miss something? How is the portal still up? I thought it vanished, or was that part of Jack's little prank at the end of the last issue and it came back at some point?
I don't care what kind of laughter it is; if it comes from the DM, it's bad news.

The portal will close only when the city of Spacerock is no longer the Capital of Jetstone. When Gobwin Knob is able to capture or kill every enemy in the garrison then the portal in Spacerock will close. I'm speculating here but the portal might remain open on the Magic Kingdom side but redirect to Jetstone's other Capital Site depending on whether the side of Jetstone has a ruler at that point.

That is definitely Freddy. And thank the Titans were back to the action. Dont get me wrong, I like the backstory, but it doesn't have the same tension, since we know a lot about how things conclude.

The only other casters I recognize are the ones we've already identified, Eggman, Magicka guys, dress girl on the right could be almost anyone, could be Dobby in the corner, could be Orko in the middle, could be Dr Who in the back left. Foreground greys, and spiky-hair next to Eggman are the ones I'm really curious about.

Wanda is getting steadily more sultry, waifish, and...young. It's like power creep, for girls.

And the lighting, shading, angles are all very good this time. Nothing special on this page, but it looks better than most.

Have we ever had a discussion about why only certain characters have pupils?
