I like “gender-swap Death Note,” but “hippie Nancy Drew” is also a good one.
Blossom as Eunice the Unreachable? Certainly she is not being compared to the Unshakable Blab!
Remember that Shauna recruited the Dungeons & Dragons kids (including Blossom) for help with a previous mystery. She’s good at getting into geeks’ heads.
She is a wily one. Blossom is already hooked otherwise Shauna would be a greasy spot on the sidewalk.
Also, “Sling your hook.” I love learning British expressions.
Oh, she’s good. Really knows Blossom ticks.
What is it with this girl? It’s not like anyone from the Mystery gang personally affronted her or did her injury (none that I recall, at least). Was this because Charlotte tried to “lure” away one of her guild mates? Cause as I recall she won that battle, much to that poor lad’s ill-fortune.
I love the action drawings today. Also the next to last panel, Blossom’s reaction to the vision of being the baddie who joins the X-Men.
The term sling your hook is polite way of telling someone to go away. This term has a nautical origin. Hook was a name given to the ship’s anchor, and the sling was the cradle that housed the anchor. Therefore, to sling your hook meant to lift anchor, stow it and sail away.
I love John’s throw-away nuttiness, like Iceman having a carrot for a nose in this reality!
