Ahem... Wanda and Slately have been face to face for something like 30 updates. Meanwhile we've been watching Charlie chat with Jillian, Jillian chat with Trammenis, Jillian chat with Duncan, Caesar yell at Don, Don give a bizarre recap, Don chat with Slately... if history is any lesson we still have at least Trammenis chatting with Slately, Trammenis chatting with Ossomer (which really couldn't be too different from Trammenis chatting with Ansom earlier), someone from JS chatting with Wanda, Parson chatting with Jack/Wanda, and God knows who talking to Charlie.
Turn based warfare isn't just ridonkulous, it's also agonizing. I love this comic, but there's been a whole lot of eavesdropping on conversations that are sharing stuff the readers already know lately. At this rate I'm going to be too preoccupied with paying for my kids' college tuition to read the update where Wanda's column gets attacked... and I don't even have kids yet. ...
effataigus, I love you!!!
So now I expect 5-6 chat-updates at least, and after ..... a page with Parson ranting about everyting went wrong, and then some more pages trying to understand what happened to Wanda. (like the "intelligent reader" thing in book one)
But, if not for the slow pace, it's a wonderful story.
Trem waltzing into the room and flopping in the chair is so lol.
I'm with the "it's Charlie" faction. And anyway Charlie has to put the war back in balance, because only with balanced enemies he could offer his services to every side. Problem is, everyone now is broken, apart maybe GK. Charlie has a dim few turns ahead, working -ahem- without payment
