Indeed. I'm still at the stage where I can see that page, but if I click on the "back" button on the page, yesterday's page still doesn't have a "forward" button towards today's page...

Worse yet, if I click on "home" while on today's page, it shows yesterday's page as the home page...

I know, I know, it will change soon... but still... having the direct link is nice in the meantime...

Well, I think it's obvious that Atsali and the girl were friends... Though the flow of the last three comics seem to point to the fact that Atsali may have been the cause of the girl's suicide, I really hope that's not the case. I don't believe Atsali would have been giving vibes like she did with Nadette to the other girl... both seem too young for that sort of thing.

I will say this though... I think Atsali may know the facts of her capabilities but not necessarily the mechanics of it. She's book smart, but experience bereft... I'm not so sure that what happened with Nadette was Atsali's fault either. Nadette was acting on her feelings and Atsali was clueless as to what was going on. She's still not sure what she did... or if it was even wrong, but Nadette was heartbroken by Atsali's lack of reaction. Rejection like that isn't easy to take at any age, but at their age, with hormones beginning to rage, Atsali should have had SOME reaction. The lack is probably what hurt Nadette... who probably thinks she's not attractive enough or good enough.

Again, I say Poor Nadette...

Kath? Good luck having the birds and bees talk with Atsali.
You know that light at the end of the tunnel?

Yeah... it's a bullet. Sorry.

I think Nadette needs hugs now, but is doing OK otherwise.
Also, why would the Bear Twins have a picture of the suicide girl? She doesn't appear to be the same race as the Ursamorphs (unless their "natural" form is horned). It's just another one of those Pablo mysteries.

My guess is that in the paranormal circles of the Wapsiverse, it is known as the Sirens and Incubus talk.

I wouldn't say cause I'd be willing to bet Atsali blames her own obliviousness as a contributing factor.

She probably feels that with her smarts, she should have noticed something wrong. Guilt over one's own absent-mindedness is a curious thing, believe you me. I've often pondered if I could have used an assistant like the Laputaians in Gulliver's Travels, to gently bop me in the head with a inflated bladder to keep me in the here and now.

Does that picture remind any0one besides me of someone we have seen before? I keep thinking of Bia

I think the artist has only so many faces he can draw, given his style.

A bit of a Freudian slip there?

um, I'd say more like a Shakespearean slip... that sounds like a word he'd use, and i "KNOW" I've heard it; whether it's a legitimate word or not, I'm not sure, but i have heard it used that way before...

Yes, that confused me at first, too. Especially since the wood floor we see in the third panel would go more with what we see of the Bear Sisters' house in the background in panel two than the industrial look of the Gilchrist apartment. But the only way the line "I'll see you two too. Promise!" makes sense is if Atsali is the one saying it, to Berdine.

Although it is a bit further confusing that 'Sali was holding the phone in her left hand in panel one, then apparently switched between panels so she could hold the photo in her left hand instead. Whereas Bern has HER phone in her right hand and wouldn't have had to switch to pick up a picture. But still, both in the context of today's strip and the fact that we know Atsali knew Horned Girl, aka Sweetie, aka 'that girl', it makes more sense for Atsali to be the speaker.

I wonder if we'll ever find out about Sweetie. If Monica SHOULD find a way to talk to the dead, I imagine Atsali will want to talk to her.
