Oh damn! That came together nicely, didn't it?!

*rubbing hands together*
I can't WAIT for Elliot to hear about this.
Is Mr. Alexander actually going to play that card right now?!

/looks at queue

Uh, Mr. Maerc is wrapping up a chess game and isn't taking calls--he's even more difficult than Sonja to get ahold of.

Yes, the game isn't over, not yet.

Gus drops the mic, or the hammer, or something.

Wow. This whole exchange is just... man. I get tense waiting to see what's going to load when I click that link. Well done, sir. Know that your efforts are not for naught!

Thanks! I reckon I'll yank you around a couple more times before we get into the second half of this chapter [redacted]

Also, note that Carter might've swung a couple seconds too early...

I know, right? Prof needs to hurry up and get Jack(ie) back in the picture!

Speaking of which, here's the full picture of Bishop and Lake, which is in its own way a commentary on nostalgia.

As Sophie said in that nice fanart you did, everything has its place, and everything has its time.

Rest assured that Jack(ie, and yes, that's a plan) will be back in AB. But yeah, this page has a LOT of punch, lirv.

Jack Bishop? That name sounds familiar...like this girl I saw in Autumn Bay....but nah, they can't be the same, right? Just a coincidence.

The only Bishop I'm familiar with in AB was an old guy who ran a gym. But that was a while ago.

Well, if it isn't the ghosts of continuity past...

(Yes, those are both still accurate... Or should I say WILL BE?)

Welp. That backfired. Or maybe a bad choice of words as Cannon is not keen on listening to stories.
Carter Lake... That is like the weirdest name you or Prof came up with :D :D

Wanted to say "what is that going to do" but I guess there is Sonja's reputation at stake.
It is also funny she underestimated Alex because yes, he can do the exact same thing.

Gotta wait for now :)

(nooo Chuck!!!)

"Carter Lake"? More like "Crater Lake", considering how much damage this guy can put out. And yes, it's a Prof name.

As I said in the PM, Alexander is here purely as a scaffolding by which I can build Sonja.

Also, I think you can kiss Chuck goodbye... I'd rather do MSV strips about Donald Trump. >:)

Jak, sometimes the things I do, and the names I come up with, are loaded with layers of meaning. Carter Lake is one of those. I hope a PM is not remiss. One will he coming to you shortly. :)

Yo, I want a copy of that PM... you probably already told the origin of his name already, but hell if I'm digging through PMs just to find that.

I really don't get this part of people taking business so very personally. On one hand, revenge is a tradition-honoured pursuit, and it's just a fact that getting known as a pushover in business can invite the hyenas to come try and tear a piece. On the other hand, you've gotta keep your eye on what is and isn't a profitable use of your time: If this 'secret' was really so very damaging to Sonja or Maerc you'd think he'd have used it long before now.

As seen in prior pages Alexander *just* got ahold of this photo.

The fact that he knew to look for this photo in Sam's stuff means he had to know about this beforehand, likely a while ago. Also, one might wonder what a torn photo-print will prove to Maerc; if he's got any brains at all he either knows about that chunk of Sonja's past already or he 'knows enough' and doesn't care.

P.S. Did the automated SEO linkfarmers get at you recently, or what?

1) There's no prize I can give you for your speculating, accurate or not.

2) It was in the "or what" category... inappropriate comments and the drawbridge gets pulled.

Fair enough, more/better comics are a more important use of your time than deleting unacceptable comments.
