Not my strongest page... but damn, I am sore afterwards. If I could have broken this thing down into separate pages, I would have.

Edit: yeahhhhhhhh I might have to make some corrections.

Thanks! That's the sort of background art and establishing shots that I am trying hard to bring up to speed in order to compete for your love.

LOLed at the collar!
Tona does mean business.

Love the pacing on your chat with Maureen.
Thanks for reminding me of the importance of good pacing.

Who's in the passenger seat?!

I'll admit that Chuck's survival past the end of this Volume is still up in the air.

I respect your work too much to ask for a spoiler, but if you are taking requests I would like the Game of Thrones protocol for 'plot armour' if it's not too much trouble. ;)

1. Prof, I admit I'm having a difficult time understanding why you'd have a problem with that sort of accessory. Oh, wait, is it the obvious fetish overtones? Again, back atcha.

2. MSV agents of all stripes agree: it's more fun when they run!

3. Thank you! As a story element it didn't deserve its own page, hence my need to push hard for a single extended one shot.

Geez, you're having an extended inside conversation every time a new Winners and Losers strip comes out. I never would have guessed that might be a direct tie-in to this scene and I've read through MSV (and enjoyed it, thank you).

P.S. when I saw Lirvilas' comment on the linked page of Autumn Bay (60) I shook my head sadly. Someone should have followed it up with, "That's what she said." I guess I'm missing out by only catching up once a month.

Inside conversation? Yeah, no surprise there--after all, Prof is a credited contributor.

Those MSV pages originally had Felicia hiding behind the door in the lower right hand corner. However, page composition was a little wonky, so she got cut.

And yes, I would recommend reading Autumn Bay more often, ideally three times a week.

LMAO, she still has the collar :D
Even with the lock locked or whatever thingy that is (looks like something from school) :D

OK, I do not smoke but I tried the famous light a cigarette with another one and well, it DID NOT WORK!
I still think most works are lying to me and it is just a badass way of doing it >:(

Depends if it's hand-rolled or not, and also if you inhale while you try to light the other one. Cigarette rolling paper technology is something I haven't studied but I am certain that it uses fire retardants in the paper. There are seriously cheaper and easier ways to put pesticide in your lungs though, why not just open your mouth and spray some Raid down the hatch while inhaling?

Mass-produced cigarettes are actually blended with uh materials that keep them burning. And yeah yeah got it that cigarettes are bad... mainly because they are a pale, shitty imitation of the rich bouquet offered by a cigar.

@MJ: Hopefully I'll get around to discussing the implications of Felicia's collar to a greater degree than my previous sniping with Prof... that's a few pages out though.

Actually, I use pipe tobacco as a pesticide in my garden. It's good for a bunch of different kinds of pests, really.

Thanks! I guess lighting another one while inhaling is a possibility. Makes sense.

I admit I can be very preachy about the subject of smokes due to various circumstances but definitely not here and this is already highly unrelated.
