No points for guessing who’s speaking in the last panel.

And now, to pack for SPX. I have a panel, and I’ll be presenting an Ignatz! Hope to see you guys there!

    I like how she hangs up the phone with her pinky up. And that it goes *clic* and not *click*. Reminds me that she doesn’t care.

  2. norm says:

    Yessss! More Uncle Shep! :D

  3. Wood says:

    A Spanish Knights Templar mission founded in 1704 ? So I guess in this universe the Templars were not disbanded by the Pope in the early 14th century ?

    Yest that is the first thing I think of when I see this page.

  4. Wood says:

    Also, are there other US cities, Like San Francisco, who were founded around a Spanish mission ?

    I really love Tuesday’s wardrobe.

  6. WhoTookThatty says:

    Man, that last panel makes me wonder what’d happen if Reagan and Tuesday were to go clothes-shopping together.
    Also, crossing my fingers that Sunny’s gonna show up within the next few updates.
    Since there’s Uncle Shep and Curio, that most likely means Moze and Sunny’re involved.

    • Hanna says:

      A mere sleeve of whatever Reagan wore would be too big for a dress for Tuesday.. ..maybe that’s why she dresses up in plastic. Well, that or heat insulation purposes.

  7. Mary says:

    Templar is a place where you can wear strange vinyl skirt/pants/garter THINGS and no one looks at you weird. Truly, it is a haven of the questionably wonderful.

  8. Kat says:

    Hi there, Shep!

  9. Berealagain says:

    Is…is Tuesday checking her voicemail? I know phones are different in the Templar universe, but I can’t imagine how you would call someone and they would be able to pick it up anywhere in the city (though that would be super cool).

    • Fnordius says:

      Several answering machines had a PIN function to trigger remote playback, as far back as the 1980′s in our world. It’s actually a common function.

  10. Scott says:

    I know it marks me as an engineer, but the first thing I notice is thirteen buttons on that phone… so let’s see, that’d mean base 11 with… hmmm…

  11. Bray says:

    So… was she waiting there for a phonecall?

  12. Moe says:

    Hey Spike, I’ve been in love with your work for YEARS now. And every time I re-discover this website it just make my life a little more interesting and fun.
    Also, sorry but I think you’ve make a litle mistake on the last panel there.
    I’m pretty sure it’s “Templarios” in spanish, and not “Templariso” like it says there.
    Much love from Brazil, keep it up!

    Is that a full-sized pyramid in the distance?
