"The arc title down there says Imaginate, not Improvinate!"

"Why do I have to be the spinster?" "Well you're pretty frightful, at least..." "Joey, Bino's jaw only finished healing fully last week, do you really want to tempt fate?"

"Frightful Spinsters Monthly" and "Ignoring You Monthly"

funny, I'd think Grape would be ignoring you daily

I like to think none of the characters can play the instruments in that last panel well.

Welp, nobody here called Marvin XD

Also, there's no beating Tarot at chess is there?

Due to the Comic title, I can't help but hear the Bleach Soundtrack "Ditty for Daddy." it just seems fitting.

I laughed at what Grape was Reading.

HA! I knew Squeak had to be ten if Joey was 9... if the order of the book fits... I also remember the judge being 6, so there's that.

This should be VERY good with an all star cast like this. Let me see, we have Fido, Joey, Squeak, Sabrina, Grape, Peanut, Marvin, Max, Tarot, and Bailey to round it out! I wonder how Max convinced Marvin to come.

Where did Max get those sunglasses?

Good Diss, why are you now designated a 'Chocolate Bar'?

And so Maxwell tells the plot,
keeping in tune and in time
telling the story of the lot,
but leaving out the crime.

Squeak's out there in the open,
serving the Orange Soda
If they don't get on plot, as Tarot's hoping
some will get no older.

Tarot's winning her game of chess
slaughtering poor Marvin.
Truth be told, it's anyones guess
whose stone is first for carvin'

Ten furry Indians, going off the plot;
if they're not careful, one will soon be shot.

I love Bailey's smug little grin in the backround of the last panel. :3
Also "ignoring you daily" is by far the greatest title of a magazine I've ever seen. :lol:

I get what the symbols mean. They represent the character they're portraying, not they're death. Marvin is the doctor, Max is the guy that ran over two kids while driving drunk (his symbol is a steering wheel). Tarot is the judge. Bailey is the old lady. I'm not sure what Fido's microphone means. I think Peanut is the soldier.

I didn't see Marvin's involvement coming, though he does seem to fit here. I now get what the symbol on his hat is, my best guess was a third eye. That didn't seem to make sense though, given their psychic connotation, and his place in chess against Tarot (which does make sense with psychic factored in) I get the feeling that Max chose his role early on, he seems to fit it well.

Yay Fido is there. Is it safe to assume King isn't?

So THAT is what that is lol. I've been trying to figure it out since I first saw it, I had all the other ones down but that one confuzzled me.

Also, love that Sabrina and Fido are both involved here. I was excited about Joey (still am, he needs to be in more strips) but it's just way cool for Fido and Sabrina to both be there. Also, Bailey but no King? Maybe he's watching

Fair bet right now as none have died.

Let's summarize: 10 Indians
1) One person choked. 9 alive.
2) One person overslept. 9 are still alive.
3) One stayed in Devon. 9 are still alive.
4) One person got into a chopping accident. 8 are alive.
5) One person got stung by bees. Probably fatal. 7 remain alive.
6) I don't know what it means when "one got chancery." Doesn't sound deadly/bad. 7 still alive.
7) One person got swallowed by herring. 6 remain alive.
8) One person got mauled by a bear. 5 people lives.
9) One person got sun burnt. Probably dead. 4 remain alive.
10) One person hung himself. 3 people are still alive.

Not only did I, but I also expected him to join his wife in this play...But come to think of it, he may have decided to keep Fox company, if the latter decided against joining for being still mad at Fido

Getting your own chancery usually isn't deadly. (That's the place where the layers work.)

I may be wrong, but I think Rick is using her as an Author Avatar to indicate that - yes, he is aware of, and no, does not condone the subject of the play's origin which we need not get into again in the comments.

She does see into the future, so the only true way to beat her is with someone just as good. You know i'd like to see a one-off where Tarot gets beaten without her letting the other person win, just to see how it would go.

Yeh, I was just catching on to that now I see them all at once.

Don't open the spoilers unless you know the story.

I rather think so. The judge was the mastermind behind the whole thing.

Peanut really likes playing that trombone, don't he? =P

Never expected Marvin, either. Sadly, knowing how live action murder mysteries work, he probably will be the least remembered death ;_;

Nice that Fido showed up, afterall. Will we be seeing real detective skills at work now? =3

Last and least ~ something tells me King is going to show up in the end...
