Got to the end and saw the illustration and thought "Oh god, how did I miss that?"

Venusaur fainted!

Also, I bet the army outside was natural allies, that's why they didn't disappear, they just went neutral again. Could probably be hired or something. Munchkins. Ding dong the witch is dead!

She's gone where the gobwins go
Below, below, below
Yo ho, let's open up and sing!


"As coroner, I must aver,
I thoroughly examined her
And she's not only merely dead
She's really most sincerely dead!"

So apparently hornyness is enough to refuse an order?

More like Jillian said to attack the lizard, but Rusty didn't see a lizard. Once he did, he knew what to attack.

Ding-dong indeed. Could those soldiers be Wanda's Uncroaked? Might explain the refusal to attack and failure to disband.

The 'never loved you' thing was a low blow.

No, we know from much earlier in Book 0 that uncroaked units disband when their side ends just like any other units. I'm sure they also obey the orders of their ruler. I agree with the idea that those soldiers are natural allies.

They could be Charlie's Archons, perhaps?

If Wanda's current condition is the result of Olive's foul sorcery, perhaps she'll be looking better when they wake up?

Yes. There's a difference however. Haffaton's Uncroaked were created by the Lady Wanda Firebaugh, Croakamancer of the Court of Faq, a Capital Side with a Treasury. Goodminton's Uncroaked were created by the Lady Wanda Firebaugh, leader of a purse funded Barbarian Side that didn't exist until Goodminton fell. Furthermore, there have been no incidents of Units created by a Caster being sent into battle against that Caster. It may be impossible to do so, especially when it comes to mindless Uncroaked that acted as an extension of Wanda's fists.

Hmmmm....I actually don't have much to say, besides the obvious joy that Olive is dead! About damn time, and this also clears up speculation about Janis being Olive.

The dancing Munchkins are obviously high elves. Munchie-kins and all.

That was a pretty trippy description of how it feels like to be in the smoke.
Can't help but wonder if Olive isn't dead yet... my thoughts were that she would be held hostage again, forcing Charlie to reveal whatever lifetime-oath secret he had told in front of Wanda and Jack.

Oh, and someone should write a book "Do gwiffons dream of gooey sheep?" :D
What Parson's slogan should have been: "We break things. Sometimes that even works."

So, finally Olive is dead.

Next, Charlie´ll negotiate a NDA with Jillian, Wanda and Jack. Because they have been witness to Charlie´s influencing naturall allies. A secret truly priced to protect.

Oh thank the Titans, Olive is finally down for the count! I think the readership has been waiting for this for over 50 episodes...

I wonder who those little soldiers are, then? I don't think they're related to Charlie - he really only deals in Archons and Golems. Munchkins, maybe? Will they attack the city? I kinda hope not - I feel like we need a break after the intense last few strips.

(Also, Peep-at-you did well considering the type disadvantage)

Well right, it wasn't the shockamancy. What got her was the Dirtamancy Trap. Which, as we all know from book 1...

It's Super Effective!

:lol:
Yes. That is a rocket-propelled bulldozer of love.
