Previous TBFGK 10 Next TBFGK 12 [edit]


Panel 1

A wide aerial view of the Magic Kingdom.[1] This is a large, forested island divided into coloured wedge-shaped segments that converge on a single circular grove. The segments are, in clockwise order starting from the top: purple, grey, teal, red, orange, green, blue, and yellow. Inside each wedge is a small clearing, similar to the one at the convergence in the middle of the island. The central grove (presumably Portal Park) is a more natural forest green, and what may be large trees or some other kind of structure, can be seen in this and the other clearings. Intriguingly, the colour wedges extend out into the surrounding water.[edit]

Narrator: The Magic Kingdom

Janis: Your mistress is approaching, Sizemore.
[edit]

Panel 2

In a small clearing in the Magic Kingdom, Sizemore[2] and Janis[3] sit cross-legged at the base of a psychedelic, rainbow-coloured flower. Two snakes (one grey and the other brown) slither by in the foreground, at the feet of Wanda Firebaugh, who is standing at the edge of the panel waiting. In the background, a crowd of silhouetted dancers cavort flexibly.[edit]

Narrator: ...In a glade of the Hippiemancers

Dancers: It's blowin' peace and freedom! It's blowin' equaliteee![4]

Janis: I'm afraid we haven't made much progress.

Sizemore Rockwell: It's okay.

I wasn't expecting to be very good at it.
[edit]

Panel 3

Janis gives Sizemore a concerned look as he pushes himself to his feet.[edit]

Janis: I haven't really taught you anything. You don't have to pay me the eight Rands.

Sizemore Rockwell: I wasn't planning to.
[edit]

Panel 4

Janis smiles a little sadly at Sizemore.[edit]

Sizemore Rockwell: Take ten. No... twenty.[5]

There's a good chance I'll never see you again.
[edit]

Panel 5

Sizemore grabs his bag from the ground as Janis protests.[edit]

Janis: I can't--

Sizemore Rockwell: It's done.

You're a good teacher, Janis.
[edit]

Panel 6

Sizemore and Janis hold hands briefly in farewell.[edit]

Janis: Peace, Sizemore.

Sizemore Rockwell: Unlikely, sister.

Janis: Inner, then. Peace in your heart.
[edit]

Panel 7

Wanda looks impatiently at Sizemore. She is clutching a large, blue scroll.[6][edit]

Wanda Firebaugh: Our turn has started. Why did you make me find you?

Sizemore Rockwell: Sorry, my Lady.

But in the presence of so much Flower Power, time perception sort of crumbles.
[edit]

Panel 8

Janis can be seen, still standing by the psychedelic flower in the hippiemancer grove, as Wanda and Sizemore walk away.[edit]

Sizemore Rockwell: The Hippiemancers call it--

Wanda Firebaugh: "Flaking." I know.

Sizemore Rockwell: Also, I'm hungry.

...But Portal Park[7] isn't far.

We'll be back in time...

Wanda Firebaugh: Mm.
[edit]

Notes

  1. ^ The name references "The Magic Kingdom," one of four theme parks at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida. This frame is notable as it is not only the first view of the Magic Kingdom, but also the first major overland shot of a large chunk of Erfworld.
  2. ^ Sizemore Rockwell is seen for the first time. Sizemore's name is derived from the stage names of two members of the band Assrockers: Durt Sizemore and Riff Rockwell.
  3. ^ Janis is seen for the first time. Her name is a probable reference to Janis Joplin.
  4. ^ The lyrics are from A Mighty Wind.
  5. ^ This is the first appearance of a scroll, and specifically, the Summon Perfect Warlord Spell.
  6. ^ Portal Park is apparently the large clearing in the middle of the Magic Kingdom.
