Chapter 5: Lit, page 85.

I hear little cogs turning in a certain someone’s head.

And that’s the end of that scene. Coming up: Beauty vs. The Revolution.

Discussion (36)¬

  1. He wouldn’t have to go through all this trouble if they just had Ebay.

  2. frankwolftown says:

    Beauty vs the Revolution? What happened to the Beast?

  3. Is he planning on getting a replacement controller for Zora? That’s the only thing I can think about…

  4. Kysec says:

    Oh, Ben, you thoughtful little darling, you!

  5. RV says:

    Aww yes Ben they might have a Unagi <3

  6. Pixel says:

    Nainsook… something else I didn’t even realize I needed till I read up on it! I love that super-soft kind of woven cotton and indeed it would make the best bloomers ever.

  7. December says:

    Are there pastime optometrists? Does Ben have to go somewhere special for his pince nez? I’d be willing to have truck with them pastimes if it meant I could wear the pince nez.

  8. Kathleen says:

    Ahh! I was completely confused by the intent of his thoughts until you guys cleared it up. Thanks!

  9. Synfony says:

    Geez, Gordon looks so fragile and stressed there, what a change from the usual. Good work on the expression.

  10. JL says:


    Also, who is the headless statue?

  11. Pearle says:

    That statue embodies the principles of Kingdom Come: Guns (the spear, a weapon), Booze (the pitcher), porn (bare breasts) and death (it’s headless).

  12. Moggers87 says:

    Flannery is my favourite character, even if she looks like a lampshade half the time :)

  13. Cyanmanta says:

    Has there ever been a map of any portion of the city of Templar on any page? Every time I see an outdoor scene in this city, I wish I knew where it was in relation to the big picture…

  14. AlmostLiterally says:

    Ben…<3 I want one of my own. Maybe a foot shorter, so he'd be pocket portable.

  15. Hanna says:

    Ben is probably thinking about finding an Unagi controller. :-P

    • Hanna says:

      Memo to self: next time read what everyone else has added before repeating what’s been said about ten times already. I’ll take this as a sign to get some sleep. XD

  16. Andrew says:

    Just noticed something…probably intentional, but Gordon’s eyes are rarely if ever drawn with pupils/gleam in them. Dead and flat. A graphical representation of personality I bet, like how people with wider, sparkly eyes are more energetic/intelligent.

  17. C. Mage says:

    I think this is the first situation I’ve seen Gordon in where he doesn’t look like he left his pulse in his other pants pocket….

    • SweenJM says:

      agreed………poor dude is afraid his P.O. is gonna walk around the corner…….and come one……he just wants to scope a naked girl or two……..doesn’t wanna strangle them even a little bit, honest.

  18. tricksterson says:

    So have the Pastimes been mentioned before or just now? Never mind a cast page, Spike needs to put up a page to keep track of the various cults and oddball societies.

  19. Mary says:

    I’m totally imagining her flailing her arms all over the place in the first panel. For some reason that makes me very, very amused.

  20. Kysec says:

    I feel like when we finally see what Gordy has, I’m not only going to be surprised, but very sad and a tiny bit queasy.

  21. KimmQuinn says:


    • WindupBoy says:

      It’s the Snuggler’s Cove poster, right? I’m beginning to think Gordy here might be a bit of a pedophile.

      • Alethia says:

        It’s not the Snuggler’s Cave poster, even though it looked like it was at first. Whatever he took was framed, and was hanging above the staff recommendations shelf, while the poster wasn’t framed. It wasn’t shown to the readers yet what it actually was that he took, though. :)

      • Pixel says:

        No, it’s something in a frame, above the case with the Cock of Science. If you go back to where Gordan saw it, we could see the edge of the frame. Then after he grabbed it, there was a bare place on the wall where it had been.

    Gifts for everyone! The game thing for Gene, the Master Wu undies for Scip!
