I was going to mention 'dust devils`, but this is Wapsi Square & there is likely just such a thing...

Sapient ones.

Castela does seem more mobile than the average blackthorn, so maybe she's part tumbleweed.

Last post/tweet I remember said end of September for new strips and today's the 18th, so maybe the light at the end of the tunnel looks a little closer. :D :twisted:

Paul said that the strip would return on the 28th.

Today is the 18th.

For some reason, when I saw the "Ten" the song "AEIOU Sometimes Y" started flashing through my mind, only it was a 10, 9, 8... countdown.

Funny how sometime simple things can trigger memories of how I actually spent money on that God-awful album because it had one good track for radio play. Ok, maybe "Rockin Robin" too, but the Michael Jackson version was tons better.

Eight.
“There is a distinct difference between "suspense" and "surprise," and yet many pictures continually confuse the two. I'll explain what I mean.

We are now having a very innocent little chat. Let's suppose that there is a bomb underneath this table between us. Nothing happens, and then all of a sudden, "Boom!" There is an explosion. The public is surprised, but prior to this surprise, it has seen an absolutely ordinary scene, of no special consequence. Now, let us take a suspense situation. The bomb is underneath the table and the public knows it, probably because they have seen the anarchist place it there. The public is aware the bomb is going to explode at one o'clock and there is a clock in the decor. The public can see that it is a quarter to one. In these conditions, the same innocuous conversation becomes fascinating because the public is participating in the scene. The audience is longing to warn the characters on the screen: "You shouldn't be talking about such trivial matters. There is a bomb beneath you and it is about to explode!"

In the first case we have given the public fifteen seconds of surprise at the moment of the explosion. In the second we have provided them with fifteen minutes of suspense. The conclusion is that whenever possible the public must be informed. Except when the surprise is a twist, that is, when the unexpected ending is, in itself, the highlight of the story.”
