The MC has no idea what strip this is.
Peanut Butter fancied himself as a cartoonist back in the day. I forget, though, did he also dream of being a detective?
Jim, hmm, I see what you mean. The same can be said for the preceding panel (“I have another idea for a strip….”). I found that b&w Sunday on an auction site, advertised as original Gould art, which sold a couple years ago:
FWIW I checked the ilovecomix archive just now, and the same words appear in both word balloons. So the wording in the original art and what was actually published are identical.
Bugz & Werms — little doubt who “Bugman” is! Check it out here:
“After that, they were ordered to never communicate telepathically, except in emergencies.”
Neil, when did this happen? I have no recollection of Mysta and Honeymoon ever being ordered not to communicate telepathically, though it’s entirely possible I’m forgetting something.
It seems like Diet’s assistant is piloting a drone? Taking pictures of….?
Or maybe she has jaundice? Only the MC knows!
Honeymoon was kidnapped by B-B Eyes not long after the current team took over, only in that case the villain tried to kill her.
Six years of the strip has passed, but six years in Tracytime hasn’t. For example, since Honeymoon was reintroduced back in 2011 as a “tweener,” she’s only aged a year or two at most. That’s one reason why they can’t have DT III aging very fast.
