    Two ways this can be fixed: The boring way and the Phil way. The boring way is they just fix the typo. The Phil way is they change the 'Boom' sound effects so they are indeed in Arial.

    I think the Foglios are falling behind.

    There hasn't been a Sneaky Gate in months and the comic has been late more often than not. They must've run out buffer long ago and are now hustling to keep up with their schedule.

    We know for a fact that their colour buffer was non-existent when their colourist fell sick, so I suspect that is indeed the reality of the situation (interestingly, buffer-meister Tayler measures the inked pre-coloured strips for purposes of his buffer calculations).

    That said, it might be they are having trouble connecting to their servers from England. They would have said something in advance or at least by now if they could connect, so they may have the page and just unable to show it.

    Actually, The Baron was likely given orders to elimate as many enemy sparks as he could. When the Other first started she did the same thing (destroying the compitition).

    It's the Internet concept of logic, in which each statement in a sequence of statements occurs after the previous statement.

    First statements in a sequence of statements are not a product of logic but of rigorous scientific observation, experimentation, or a meme, so that the first statement in a sequence of statements need not occur after a previous statement, but previous to a previous statement.

    Personally, I wouldn't be surprised if these "Asylum Seekers" are rounded up and sent to jail with the people who were captured attacking the city. They're too unpredictable, and until recently hostile, to be safely used.

    Mind you, they ARE trusting the sparks from the Castle Repair Crew (Or at the very least the Mad Social Scientist and SpiderDoctor), but Moloch knows them, and they've already demonstrated loyalty to Agatha.

    Well now as far as making use of them these "asylum seekers" haven't actually offered their services. On the contrary it strikes me that as demonstrated opportunists, they're more concerned with finding a place they can lay low til they get another chance to take over.

    I'm thinking the best thing to do with them might well be as Moloch suggests - let Her Sparkiness turn them into fish. Of course, that giant monkey is rather large, maybe she'll need to Summon Bigger Fish for that one.

    Well, we know that, for the most part, the baron has made a habit of incorporating rogue sparks and their creations into his empire. The books describe it more in depth. Basically he beats them and then offers them jobs making stuff for him and gives them labs and freedom to run with various ideas while nudging them to do more constructive things and basically makes them so happy that they don't even want to leave.

    So maybe Agatha could work out something similar in Mechanicsburg. Especially if the Baron, under the control of the Other, is going to start offing enemy sparks instead of recruiting them. If Agatha can set up the defenses well enough to make Mechanicsburg a safe zone, she could get a seriously insane think-tank sort of situation happening in Mechanicsburg, as long as all the lesser sparks know who's in charge (and the Castle can always help keep them in line). If she can spin this right, it could be very good for the safety of her town in the long-run.

    "An asylum of sparks" is now my head-canon for the term for a group of mad scientists.

    EDIT: I just noticed something odd....why is the minion telling himself to calm down? Shouldn't that speech bubble be pointing off-panel, since it would make sense to be coming from the aeroape Spark?

    Yeah, I think it was fairly obvious, given the "sparky" shape of the speech bubble that it's Senear talking, and the tail just points the wrong way. Stuff happens, and given they were bit late and perhaps rushed to get the strip up I don't think it's a major problem.

    I wonder what the story of the big machine is. Why would the Heterodynes build such a thing - it looks like a generator of some kind - and then brick it up? Some sort of secret weapon?

    I also wonder what der Kestel's problem is. Moloch has repaired the water wheel and now apparently the coal gas lines: Just how much power does it need to stabilize itself and reactivate its memory circuits? It's not as if it's having to devote effort to fighting, any more. Of course it might be pouring all the power it's getting into reconnaissance to see what's coming, and running city systems so the Mechanicsburgers can build up defenses: But still, it seems like a very massive energy sink.
