Re: 2019/12/16 - Well Duh

Perhaps hes not working alone, but not working with anyone. It seems possible that the kits got hold of the coin and did something that Steward noticed but didnt really think about until Marion shows up. Maybe they tried a ritual or something that transformed Marion from afar. Remote transformation...

Re: 2019/12/13 - Pressing Buttons

So I'm guessing Lois has some Christian Fanatics in her family somewhere, potentially herself at some point in the past which she now regrets, as she says she had gotten Mental Whiplash from the bible quote. That's a good point. Maybe this is what leads to Lois & Marion living in the new ECP boardi...

Re: 2019/12/13 - Pressing Buttons

Trying to parse what he's saying... He could be telling them to either look for the gold, or go to the ruins of the temple where they could find clues. Both of those would likely lead them to Steward. But what throws me off is how Kitsune says "It's not gonna help with what you really need~". Kitsun...

There is also the thought that both were about to graduate high school. Marion is 17 at the start of the arc. Lois is 17 or 18. Both seemed to be planning on college (Marion said as much just before meeting Truck and Falstaff). It hasn't been said, but they possibly were going to move out in three ...

Re: 2019/12/11 - Just Give Me A Reason

I feel like the next 5 strips before the Christmas timeskip are going to involve Lois asking Kitsune if he knows who did it. Kitsune replies saying he doesn’t, or that revealing too much would be bad for the universe and what-not. I don't think it needs to be a fate of the universe thing. I mean, i...

Kitsune's true form is truly stunning, but something tells me that even with the ability to turn himself into that, he won't be able to change Marion & Lois back. There's 7 strips left in the arc before the timeskip. My guess is that it's going to be a back-and-forth with M&L asking Kitsune the full...

If that was the case then it would be pretty tragic and maybe too much for the comic that they have to stay as animals forever. Nobody can cheat death and this is just a loophole.
