    Rakethorn is obviously not used to working with Jagers...

    I wonder where Zeetha is. I would have thought she'd be the one coming to Agatha's aid, or reining Rakethorn in.

    This being Zeetha, she's probably making popcorn. I mean, she's seen maybe four hunky shirtless men in the whole run of the comic and one was her brother.

    Besides, he should be reminded that some of the rooms are already taken.

    I think his reaction is more 'owowowowow....' when Oggie smacks his injured back, despite him trying to hide the fact it HURTS LIKE HECK acting as a human shield.

    That's how I read it as well. His back just got done getting dragged through the floor, after taking the brunt of an explosion. Oggie's smack was just the straw that broke the camel's back.

    Two explosions. And that's not even mentioning whatever he went through that relieved him of his shirt.

    I once said that nobody in Girl Genius is who they appear to be, but this story arc has got me feeling like I'm playing Paranoia again!

    I keep asking things like:
    "Why is Trog/Topper smiling at this juncture?"
    "What deal was Tarvek going to offer Snackleford before he was interrupted?"
    "Where did Rakethorn come from and who was he referring to when he said 'That should be of all of them'?"
    "What traitor dare imprison Friend Computer Kestle-bot?"

    As PraetorDragoon says, he took it off deliberately in a (doomed) attempt to impress/attract Agatha.

    Seems Rakethorn overplayed the stoic hero card; Agatha hears that the injury to his back is "nothing" and is happy to leave it to that and quickly move on. He might have gotten more attention if he actually played up that Pain in his back

    Yeah, I love his expression in the second panel: but... my back IS on fire.

    On the other hand, such a cold treatment should have put the fire down.

    Topless Lucrezia was distracting enough that I didn't notice the knife until the 3rd time I looked at the panel. Good job Phil. Good Job.

    The trick is that there is another knife.

    I don't know... He's been hanging around Oggie (Mr "That's why I has descendants") for a long time, and is also something of a ladies Jager himself.

    And I think most of the Jagers are smarter than they let on...

    You mean they aren't too dumb to live? I suspect most of them could have discoursed on duality and the politics of nonbeing, if they felt so inclined. Behaving like big idiots is just so much more fun.

    I'm surprised Zeetha is being so obtuse this time. Of course Agatha isn't going to waste time fawning over Rakethorn.

    Agatha's got to...
    • Free herself form Marstellus's chemical curse.
    • Shake off Lucrezia's possession.
    • Save Mechanisburg from monsters from beyond time itself.
    • Sort out the affections of two potential heirs of empires.
    • And let's face it, is probably more impressed by someone's ability to rebuild a Lagâri Hasan Çelebi rocket than how they look without a shirt own.

    Who has the time to oggle a man who frankly, seems like an obvious plant?

    I guess Phil & Kaja though the audience needed reminding of why Agatha isn't wasting much time with Rakethorn.

    Agatha is used to her boys needing rescuing not the other way around so she doesn't know how a proper damsel in distress behaves (or she knows and wants nothing to do with it).

    Da Boys are schmott guys. Dimo is the smartest that's why he's a general but the other two are colonel material. Remember Maxim's new hat?

    Speaking of, he obviously doesn't have that hat anymore (if anything, his current hat looks similar to what Higgs is wearing just in a different color) and hasn't had it since they reached the underwater lab (at an absolute minimum, since that's as far back as I feel like archive-trawling atm). I do recall the other Jagers queuing up to fight him to get it, but did we ever get confirmation on when he lost it, and how he got the new hat and from whom?

    He's wearing it here, which is post-Timeskip, but when he turns up in Paris he's lost it.

    I don't think he lost it. I think he just left it someplace safe while he went to Paris since he realized that wearing it there would cause trouble.

    Why would it cause trouble in Paris?

    I'm not saying it's not a reason. It certainly can be. Heck, I wouldn't be surprised if Paris has actual fashion police that would consider the hat gauche. But I don't remember there being a particular reason that was mentioned.

    The presence of jagermonsters in Paris is discouraged. But he could easily store his hat in whatever he qualifies as luggage while he is in disguise.
