Those are some nice nails.

I'd like the number of that salon.

This is where her arm gets replaced with a bionic one and turns into the female version of Darth Vader.
What good is dreaming it if you don't actually do it?.

@Brion: The title is spelled incorrectly in the archive http://www.flipsidecomics.com/chapters.php

I wonder if we're seeing Fata Morgana here.  The title certainly feels a bit ominous as to the statement that the world is a lie.

Thats it! Flipside is an early version of "THE MATRIX" *lol*

I'm seriously confused here...
We saw Crest and Suspiria in that confrontation with Danzig, earlier we saw both May and Bern going into that kind of portal, where they were locked up by these sister/s +/- Glyph.
It can't be a dream.
And now we have Regina who is working for Mr.Danzig.
Also where's Bern if that was just a dream?
She should rather be with May in their room,and she's not there.
Argh I really wonder when true story of what happened will be revealed.
I'm still thinking this is just another trial with using some shape-changing magic.
All info still could be provided by Moss easily.

Guess we called it, those of us who said she just works there.
Was I the only one who said that?

P.S. You can't really tell the arm is back here. All you can see in the frame is her shoulders.
Hi.
I've been out for two years, so warn me if I act like I missed something obvious. ^^;

...oh, and to anyone who missed me, I'm open to hugs, kisses, and intense tearful cuddles.

In the first frame you can see clearly up to her left wrist.

note that she doesn't work a bed and breakfast, but helping Danzig with his eeeeevil research in the secret laboratory of the 'good guys'.

I bet she honestly and naively thinks that what's going on is for a good cause, and that's probably the cause of discord between her and Lucient. Though I'm extremely surprised that she'd bunker up somewhere working with Moss of all people. Curiouser and curiouser.

Regina bunking with Moss...now that's an interesting idea.

Regina and Moss?

...Well she did hurt herself on purpose to get Lucient's attention, so that fits in with the kind of girl Moss might like *lol*

Should we be concerned about her comment "I'm doing something important with my LIFE"

The other thing is that Danzig didn't confirm that he's working for the Thin Man. He only noted that Crest had heard of him.  Beyond that, there could be more to this.  I'm still concerned on how late Qtalda's team was in arriving to the rescue and her complete drive (no matter how justified) on killing Mary.

But yeah, we still don't know what the heck happened when they went into the portal.  I guess we'd have to presume they were knocked out or something.  If Maytag's arm really has been replaced, she may have been out of commission longer than Bern and Bern might just be practicing outside or be locked up for everyone's good until Maytag could wake up and convince her it's alright (considering her stance on sorcery).

Is it bad that my jaw dropped?  I thought her and Lucien were such a cute couple!

But if Regina's working for Danzig...is he really bad?  Or is she just naive?  If he's really a good guy, he's awful at his first impressions.

She could be naive.  One important thing I seem to recall is that she was studying to become a Vespel sorceress so if her faith is in that direction you'd think it might have a large influence on her accepting to help Danzig.  I'm also half suspecting that it's many of the myths and tales behind either the Vespel religion or the Knight's religion which might relate to this great truth they're trying to reveal.

Made a couple of fixes to some recent pages:

22-26: Changed Danzig's dialog from "she has an amazing amount of essence" to "her essence has a beautiful quality to it, don't you think?"

22-29: The curls over May's ears were too short.  Made them longer.

23-02: Maytag still had her left arm, it's been fixed now.

Man, was I briefly surprised when I saw the tiny review on the current page! i thought Maytag and Regina were going to go to bed together!  :o  ;D  Should be interesting to understand Regina's role in all of this, or if she's another illusion...

There's no "could be" about it. Regina, I suspect, is naive. Ding, ding, ding, Maytag! Blind Girl alert!  ::)

With three strips about Regina it's rather unlikely, tht this is not the real one. Unless this not being Regina is a big plot point.

I still find it hard to belive that Moss and Regina work together on the same project. Unless at least one of them has changed. A lot.
If it's not Regina, pretending a breakup with Lucient would be the thing to do. May could hav some Information, Moss can not provide. And now Maytag is unlikely to ask.

Regina oughta say "You might be the person we're looking for".

Lovin' this section of the story.  So much mystery right now, and with cool characters being introduced and re-introduced.

I agree Umber, some bad english there.

the original
"And... you might the person we're looking for, Maytag...!"

shouldn't it be
"And... you might just be the person we're looking for, Maytag...!
