That timing feels staged...
This is why itâs not a good idea to have team with only defensive assets. The team will probably be able to hold them off but not actually deal with them. On the other hand, if Gastonâs team gets there in time, Im pretty sure the magic kids are screwed.
I'm just going to assume this is some hilarious fakeout; and they're getting fast food or something and unable to carry the massive quantity of burgers or whatever.
Long time without praising the comic, so, praise I will.
Really, I love how small differences in the character's expression between panels really make a big difference. I find very amusing how Gaston's eyes widen in the fourth from "Meh" into "Oh shit!".
what are those spooky little plus signs at the edges of the panels...
1300?! need another daily update marathon ;-)
Could be staged or they are acting now because they overheard that the groups want to reunite. (In which case Noahs group should get ready for trouble too.)
Will they believe this strange transmission? Will they care enough to do anything if they do? Does it really matter if a bunch of child soldiers(and one reluctant adult) are kidnapped by a rogue orphanage?
Find out next time on Team Apathy Versus the Power of Friendship!
I suspect Team Apathy + Gaston is about to find out what caused Kimberley's team to panic, what with the new pink sparkles floating around them.
...That or whoever's the source of the pink spirit is using mind manipulation or illusions.
Odds they ain't in real trouble?
Im starting to suspect Mr Kimble just a little now. Really just an adult who have kept from using his powers until now? And who have not just moved to another country like a sensible person?
Sooooooo, those bubble like things that have appeared are a lovely coincidence to see happen at the same time as the convo.
Wonder if an ambush will follow this :D
@beep, I think the plusses are just used to signify the ambient spirit energy in the room.
Attacked by pigeons, perhaps?
*squints at the pink sparkles*
I don't think the radio's doing that, they aren't in the first panel when they begin, and they're still there in the third panel when it's silent.
Is someone messing with the transmission?
I wouldn't be surprised at all if he's just faking to get out of helping... but if it is an attack, the same thing is likely to happen here. And elsewhere, considering his earlier comment about his device beeping all day, that could have been calls for help.
