...has Kath ever entered Mucho Mocha? Because I'm suddenly very interested in how she looks to Tina's AuraVision.

And Katherine cheesecake is one of the finest (if not THE finest) flavors WS has to offer, IMHO. I'll take seconds. And thirds. Hell, just gimme the pan!

Euryale has no problem with nudity, Shelly seemed more comfortable sans clothes immediately after returning from the time forest, and with the frequency Paul keeps drawing characters naked they may as well start a colony and remove the unpredictability. :D

But only in her apartment. I think she would be quite shy to be nude around other people.

i would have to say i am seeing an increase in ((tactful)(tasteful)(downright pornographic)) nudity, and this adventure, does it possibly involve finding out that you are in fact the first titan to be born in over (insert very large number here, must have at least 6 zeroes) years? i can picture it now, tina; the most badass and powerful being in the wapsiverse, likes to lounge around naked in her house and talk to her pet goldfish, gets sweaty palms when she's nervous.

I like that. It works with her coloration. I have to remind myself that she is actually rather tan because most of Pauls black and white art leaves the impression wiht me that she is pale, and that conjures images of Carcharodon carcharias to me. And they are definately loners. I would guess that social akwardness goes with the territory for a Great White, considering they bite divers out of curiosity, then spit them back out when they realise it's not thier normal prey.

"Oh look, that looks like a seal. I like seals. But it looks a little funny. Maybe I'll just take a bite and see... BLECH, gawd, no that wasn't a seal. Ick."

(Iknow there's a hair band joke in here, but I rarely shoot fish in a barrel.)

Only a filler? You sure about that? Forgotten past Friday cliffhangers have we? Rest of us will be watching to see how Katherine gets drawn into the recent events, and how she handles one of the few people she very felt comfortable with (Monica) suddenly becoming one of the things that can scare the crap out of her (like Phix).

Patience, bud.
I wonder how Amanda is going to adjust to the new Monica... or Dietzel!

Monica shows the vamps around to meet all her friends and colleagues, all of which can, if they chose, look human normal, except Katherine. Maybe they jump to conclusions. And maybe they aren’t wrong …

This is a transmission.

Pablo changes gears in this comic frequently.

When transmissions get abused as much as that, they tend to fall out of the vehicle of which they were a part.

Thus, when Pablo does something like this to us, the readership, we consider it "dropping the tranny."

Pablo drops the tranny so much, there are transmission-sized potholes all around Wapsi Square.

I'm thinking two possibilities. 1: In Kath's 'Adventure' some how Oscar is transformed from Goldfish to Merman and then to a "Fully functional" Male. (..and there was Much Rejoicing. {"Yay!"})
2: Involves her love of Spiders. Somehow Katherine IS of Spider lineage, meets a guy, they 'Get Busy', then she EATS HIM! But it turns out he was a bad guy and Pratt and Macbride do 'Cleanup'.
I know the second one is weird, but either one could be FUN! :twisted:

Nice to see I wasn't the only one who thought that maybe this means Katherine will be joining M, Tsillah, and the Vamps on their new assignment. :) Don't they need to go investigate a dead zone? :)

Also, is Kat in a steam room? Or are those little marks on her posterior not sweat, but freckles or dimples? Inquiring minds want to know!

WTF?
what happened between wednesday and thursday?
I expect that this is something we'll learn about when Monica discusses it (and the big changes in her life situation) with friends, in the weeks to come.

It may involve more than we might realize right now. Monica was looking rather shell-shocked when she was carried off to the showers yesterday, and I'm not convinced that was entirely a "Holy Fudd, I smacked a sphinx and glared her down and got away with it" surprise. I have a feeling that Monica might have learned something from Phix (about the implications of being a subTitan? her new mission in life? that Phix has given her an unlimited gift account at Lydia's bra shop?) that out-boggles even learning that she's immortal.

Until the big exposition, though, "Only the Shadow knows!" (Tsillah, of course)

It's not all fun and games for spiders. She also could be from the line of the Gnaphosid spider in which her babies eat her alive.

Looks like hairs to me. I don't know about all this drooling over Kath's nude body. I don't find it all that appealing. Especially not when compared to the other females here. Hot is hot, but that is not.

I think it would be great to have someone else involved in an adventure this time around. We've seen a lot of Monica, and Shelley and very little of some of the other characters like Katherine. I have to admit, when Monica got angry at Phix last week, I thought that she would poit away to a deserted island somewhere just to get away from everyone for a while and that no one would be able to find her - except Jin. I'm glad it turned out the way it did.

Actually that's a transaxle... a transmission combined with the rear-end gears and usually a differential.

And Paul isn't just shifting gears, he's dropping it into reverse at 60 forward (kph or MPH, makes no nevermind).

Once upon a time, I suggested that Katherine was actually Nut, Egyptian godess of the sky, known for her dark countenance. Perhaps an upcoming reveal along those lines?
