They've probably got him too, though he might be too big the carry. :P

Okay, so where going with individual kidnappings per strip.

And seriously. UGH, Daryl still doesn't understand that no one is making them change who they are. They're still wolves, they just need to adapt to human society since they've been living there for NINE years. They're still a pack and family. I know Miles explained this over and over. I guess we know the other reason why Daryl was not made the Alpha besides the AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH! part.

Look at King. He's been a dog for almost nine years now and he never changed who he is. He grew as a person and matured. And you know, overcame some deep personal issues that may or may not still linger within him that nothing other than a qualified therapist can cure.

Is it me or has Other Daryl gotten fatter?

I raaaather think Gale's explaining that to him now - intentionally or not - in a far more direct way. And I'm CERTAIN Miles knew she's here.

There’s one down and several to go
as Daryl goes up like a rocket.
It’s a good job Gale didn’t go
for the other Daryl there though
or her arm would be pulled from the socket.
Wandering around, not in the know,
forgetting the skills of the wild.
Perhaps she’ll grab North Star?
We know he’s sure to go far
even though he’s still really a child.
Wolves vs Cougar, a battle of will,
at the moment she’s winning. One-nil.

1) Daryl has lost a lot of weight around his face, but none anywhere else... Odd.
2) Is Ice Cream Taster a real job? Where do I apply?!

You really think Miles is that sadistic to let his family fend for themselves at the claws of an angry cougar?

I guess you could try the Ben and Jerry's factory.



Daryl is right about one thing. Human stuff is hard.

But which Daryl is the one who screamed? Depending on the answer we can at least have reassurance of the safety of one of their necks :P

One, it's not that uncommon of a trope in comedies for the one giving the test to set up the characters to fail to prove a point.
Two, still don't think that's the case unless Gale and Miles had a talk off-panel about this, especially considering Gale's reaction to seeing the pack, and I doubt Miles is that much of a "sink or swim" teacher. The wolf ritual had plenty of safety precautions, considering.

Basically I think we're going for the showdown between Miles and Gale for a rescue mission eventually.

I'm thinking he does know and he knows what SHE knows. They can beat her if they act as a united front. These guys don't act as a pack any more.

Plus, if you recall, she met the group before they left. She actually calls him Miles and states he ceded her the territory. I'm sure he's thinking she's still there and he's not been to find her? He knows she's coming...

I could totally see this as all part of the plan. Miles gets them all to hate living in the wild so they want to get jobs/got to school as soon as possible.

Lets plot out the scenarios.

First D-Rock’s

King: “Hey Miles, the others aren’t back yet. Should we be worried?
Miles: “I’m not worried. You see, King. I planned this trip to teach them that the wild is a unforgiving place. I knew they would not be able to fend for themselves anymore. Any time now they’ll come staggering back to camp with their tail between their legs begging to go home.
King: “You really think that’s going to happen? What about that scream we heard?”
Miles: “If you’ve lived with Daryl for as long as I have then you get used to it.”
King: “If you say so. I’m still concerned.”
Miles: “What’s the worse that could happen?”

Next Welish Halfwit’s

King: “Hey Miles, the others aren’t back yet. Should we be worried?
Miles: “No, Gale is just giving them a hard time.
King: “Who is Gale?”
Miles: “A cougar we used to know back when we lived here. She’s mad that we’ve invaded what she believes is her territory.”
King: “WHAT? You brought us to a cougar’s territory!”
Miles: “Don’t fret about it. Once she gives the others a good roughing up, we’ll go in and get them back. Afterwards they’ll beg us to take them back home.
King: “What do you mean ‘we?’”

Kakashi did that with Boruto and the other students in Episode 37. Knowing that they would never get The bells but having them work together to prove their resolve.

1. He is angled more towards the camera and you can see more of him, so his girth is more apparent.
2. It's hard to draw 100% consistently. If he was draw just a bit fatter today and a bit slimmer last time, he will lookr more fat, but over all his appearances it will even out more.
3. It's possible it's slightly more exaturated because people were complaining he looked less fat last time.
4. Your line is supposed to be "Boy, Other Daryl sure is looking fat today, even moreso than usual."

Hey, I saw this on an episode of the "Beanie and Cecil" puppet show back in 1953!! See, the gang's all trapped in what they think is a haunted house and, one by one, Dishonest John bops 'em on the head until he's captured everybody except ...

Oh...never mind. Look, when you get to be my age, you'll have a ton of useless mental detritus in your brains, too...

He's spherical again. Gale can just roll him away.

"Ceded the territory" could simply mean he left.

I'm inclined to agree that "ceding the territory", as Argent suggests, meant that the wolves simply moved on with no formal arrangements regarding possession. Either way, Gale's clearly NOT a "come let us reason together" gal.........

I can see it going either way, although I'm leaning toward the second one. Miles is usually portrayed as being generally on top of things, and seems to have this fairly planned out.

So is there any chance Gale can be Grape's teacher? I'm sure she could learn so many tool predator techniques from this arc alone. Though that would be implying Grape doesn't have that kind of predator power to begin with. <_< >_>

Oh my! Gale must be seriously strong... :o Yeah, at least, this time Daryl's scream is a bit better, sounding like an eagle. :P You always want to eat, fat Daryl. :D But, I see that your chubbiness is looking good on you now. ;) Check the perimeter is also a role of bodyguards, but Daryl wasn't paying attention to it right now. And also, unfortunately for him, his wolves pack isn't so much trustful... :? That's so mean, North Star. :P

Given what we know about their history, I do find it a little unlikely that Miles would have no clue whatsoever that Gale would have taken over the territory after they left, regardless of whether there was a formal meeting about it or not. We know that the pack has had run-ins with her while they lived there, and we also know that Gale is only even remotely afraid of Uncle Deadeye. I imagine that Miles knows that none of his pack stand much chance against her unless they were in top form, and he is also aware that they are absolutely not in top form (what with that being sort of the point of the arc). So it makes sense that Miles is at the very least cognizant of the possibility that Gale will be coming for the pack as they travel through their old territory.

We don't actually know that. We have 6 panels of ambiguous exposition by a potentially unreliable narrator. That's not enough to assume anything of the kind.

We know (1) Miles, his pack, and Gale were territorial neighbors, (2) this situation existed before the cubs and Pueblo were born or at least aware, (3) Gale knows Miles, feels (for some undisclosed reason) that the wolves have no bright to return, and that her family now "owns" the area, (4) she also knows Uncle Deadeye, and he scares her, either from reputation, from something she witnessed, or an encounter they had, (5) she hasn't encountered the wolves in years and years, and (6) she's gonna take them prisoner (or worse) one by one until she has the whole crew roped and tied.

Okay, we don't know for absolute certain, but we have more than enough information to make a reasonable assumption that they've met. Gale knows Miles by name, and is familiar enough with his face to pick him out from hundreds of yards away, and she knows Uncle Deadeye is far too strong for her to handle--which is a big deal, given her obvious pride in her ability to handle any of the other wolves present. That alone gives a very strong indication that Gale has interacted with the pack directly, rather than simply noting their existence from a distance.

It would take far more assumptions to conclude anything else.

This is her current plan, not part of her history.


1) Based on “They ceded this territory years ago,” we know that she most likely has lived in close proximity to the wolves based on the surrounding area she’s currently in and given what we know about cougars. Based the hunting habits of cougars and wolves and the overwhelming large territory each presides in, it’s obvious that they would have run into each other at some point during their lives. Judging from Gales aggressive manner, she is not the type to simply ignore a pack of wolves and simply keep her distance for years and years without some kind of confrontation.

2)For her to recognize Miles would most likely mean she has met him. The other option would be if someone pointed him out and said “See that wolf over there. His name is Miles. Remember his face.” Nine years later she still know what he looks like (from that distance). So either she has an eidetic memory or she has met him before.

3)Deadeye is the same. It would be foolish to assume that she would have such a fearful and cautious attitude towards him if she did not know him personally. Plus the fact that she knows what he looks like is another clear indication that she has had some personal contact. Again the odds of someone pointing him out to her is low. True we don’t know if they met face to face or spoken to one another before but again knowing how cougars and wolves interact the chances are high.

It would be funny if he tried to run and Gale chased him in a leisurely walk until he passed out from exhaustion then she rolled him away like Violet in Willy Wonka. Then the wildlife can sing an Oompah Loompa song.


On a completely different subject, does anyone else think it’s odd that Poncho’s arm is under his poncho instead of over it when he’s pointing? It bothers me.

I am reasonably certain that Miles knows Gale is there. There is really no excuse for any of the adult wolves not to know. Cougars have a distinct scent they should be able to detect. Even if they don't know/remember the smell is puma.

So either Miles knows she is there from his old wild instincts or he's about to learn he's become as domesticated as he accuses the pups of becoming.


He could get a letter from the school board after they get back. (And I mean it could take a few weeks, not that it is already in the mailbox).

Dear Mr. the Wolf

It has come to the attention of the Board that you recently took you children into the wild without supplies and exposed them to a Mountain Lion. We at the School Board take child endangerment seriously and can no longer in good conscience accept your application for employment.

<and so forth>

Then Miles is in the same find a job situation as the rest of the pack instead of already having a job just ahead of the ferrets ending the security contract. Of course they prepared him for it, likely as part of a pre-existing long term plan, but it might be nice to see him get a curveball.

Okay, we don't know for absolute certain, but we have more than enough information to make a reasonable assumption that they've met.
It's reasonable, but it's also reasonable for Miles to not remember Gale at all, or vaguely as "one of the crazy cats from the next valley over" that he never specifically paid attention to. I'm just saying don't assume Rick's not going to throw a curve ball.

At this point Rick should throw a really crazy curveball just to mess everyone up. Like have a Bigfoot or werewolf appear. Hey it’s never too late have Jason show up. :roll:

Think about it. No matter how this chapter goes, in the end we find them sitting around the campfire and Miles says,"I hope you all have learned a valuable lesson about living in the woods"

Everyone: *grumbles and nods

"Are you ready to join human society?"

Everyone: *grumbles and nods

"Even if it means getting a real job or going to school?"

Everyone: grumbles, growls, and nods

"Good." Miles sits down. "I have missed the living in the wild a little. To be honest I can't remember why we left."

Then Jason jumps out of the trees with a ax and everyone screams bloody murder. Miles shouts "Everybody run! This was a horrible idea. I hate the woods."

They all run and don't stop until they're back in Babylon Gardens. Then End.

For your convenience here is an artist rendering of what this would look like.

I'm expecting the funniest curveball here is King ends up saving the wolfs from Gale and that Gale is automatically promoted to be a substitute teacher.

Gale: Ok, class ~ we're going to talk about mates. *pulls out Maxwell* Scrawny mate. *pulls out Peanut* Dream mate.

Maxwell: D:<
Peanut: o.o

It is not reasonable that Miles does not know Gale. He ceded the territory to her. That doesn't mean he just walked away. Ceded is a more formal arrangement.

Since a few of us seem to be considering a doggo ex machina like King somehow fixing the situation, I put this to you. What about Bailey? We haven't seen her since they arrived. We know she's tough, but is she outdoor woods tough?

We don't know if she really meant that or if she used the term ceded as a over exaggeration or expression. In her mind it was a formal arrangement even though there is the possibly that Miles did simply pack and go without telling her. Or Rick could be showing off his GRE level vocabulary skills. Jack used the word "disparity" so anything goes.

Although you are probably right from what we know abut Mile's personality. Knowing him he probably would talk to Gale and tell her that he and the pack are leaving especially if there is history between the two families. Miles is responsible like that.

"Ceded" can be used to mean "gave up (something)" without any formal handing over to anyone. A very possible reading of Gale's line is that Miles and his pack left and didn't come back, which then left a power vacuum in that area that allowed Gale to move in and take claim. It doesn't have to mean that Miles specifically gave the territory to her.
Miles really could have not known Gale by name (as possibly one of the many other feral predators in the area). While Gale may have known Miles by name more or less because she was eyeing up the territory. It would also explain her knowing of Uncle Deadeye but not by name (if Miles's father was pack leader before Miles and Uncle Deadeye was just one of the family members who lived there).
There are multiple takes here, and this truly is a viable one.
