Those sort of look like Bud and Brandi but are not. And what are they seeing?

Aren't they the vamps Pablo posted a few weeks back?

And it looks like they are Monica "fans" that weren't expecting to actually see her on the street.

I think they see Monica's astral self.

When I first saw the one who resembles Brandi, I thought it might be one of Euryale's sisters.

Definitely seeing Monica astral self, and they look terrified.

The question is do they run, surrender, or prostrate themselves.

I'm glad you cleared that up because I was beginning to think Monica has somehow astral traveled through different dimensions and this was some sort of alternative universe Bud and Brandi and that was all starting to make my brain hurt.

Let's see Monica is geting her _morning_ coffee. That's morning as in dayLIGHT. And we see two vampires. You know the kind that usually need SPF 10000 sunscreen to be out in dayLIGHT. I hope that we are enLIGHTen soon. As I'm feeling a bit LIGHTheaded trying to figure things out.

To me I immediately thought of Phix and Brandi. Those glasses way down on her nose is Phix' trademark.

I doubt it is the sunscreen. I do believe we are looking at the twisted reveal of 'myth vs reality' that Paul is so very good at giving us.

Also, the Pun Jar is looking very intently at you. :P

Huh. They do bear a striking resemblance to our golem girls now that we see them in black&white, non pin-up form (intentional or no).

And perhaps my area's more an oddity, but standing about chatting on the sidewalk is a pretty common thing across age groups around here. Especially in a more downtown, old-city, or commercial area.

That, and it seems like noone writes Vampires as "allergic to sunlight" creatures anymore, regardless of genre or medium. The days of the nightwalkers in fiction may indeed be a thing of the past, only revived in the occasional tale for rustic value.

Ol' Bram didn't either. The first time the count was seen in Brittan was on a busy street in broad daylight (or as broad as it gets on that side of the pond).

Indeed... I think the pun jar would like to lighten nerf's load... :P

Perhaps it is that Monica appears to only come up to their waists? Is she 3 foot tall now?

Notice that we can't see Mon's feet; if she were directly beside them, she'd probably be only a head shorter than they are.

This makes me sad, but I can't quite pinpoint why. :(

Who cares if vampires can walk in the light? It's the sparkly ones that need to die a horribly painful death. VAMPIRES ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO SPARKLE!!!

Take a close look at the two vamps positions...Dreddy on the left, Glasses on the right...in panel three, Glasses is on the left and Dreddy is on the right...they are reacting to something coming from the opposite side of Monica...Van Helsing with a stake in each hand has just popped around the corner...
also, the highlights in the second panel show much more light coming from the building behind them than the ambient light on the street...they may be in the shade of the rising sun...
