Spine-spurs. I was wondering what those things were! I think I’d take the sickle-looking one, and also the longest dagger.
Please let it not be too late, and please let them all get safely back.
Hope they used a Hollywood star map.
Gramma Yaga is my hero!
The old ways are best. Nowadays, kids would just use frozen dinners and microwave the anchor materials to make them ready. Now, to spur Olwen on her quest.
Awww – the anchor star charts are an “R” and a “G” – for Ryan and Georgia, I presume!
Apropos of nothing, in one of today’s NY Times puzzles (Spelling Bee) “offal” was one of the words that could be found.
I feel like the TARDIS should materialize now and the Doctor attempt to stop them from doing this.
And I wonder if Hemlock, wherever he is cowering, has any idea what is about to happen?
The look on Olwen’s face in the penultimate panel is a masterpiece. She’s got the weight of two worlds on her shoulders and she feels it fully.
Don’t take the spine that is shaped like a question mark. Too chancy!
I’ve got some G&S running through my head, because Baba used “the big-big D”!
The “click click” while calibrating, and the shape of the device reminded me of the Curta Calculators, very handy before electronic calculators were invented:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Curta
hoo boy, I have a LOT of questions about todays strip, but the dentist awaits. ACK.
Wow, some heavy-duty magic coming up!
Could I have a sprinkle of luck? Sounds like it would come in handy.
And therir as hard to get rid of as bamboo, too.
Hmmm, are those starmaps Ryan and Georgia?
“It’ll be close and ugly” Hmmm. That sounds ominous.
The return will be done in the spur of the moment…
