    Nice pearl necklace on the creature in the penultimate panel.

    I’ve started watching “Elementary” with an eye to solving the case by the halfway point. It almost always turns out to be the character introduced and dismissed early on as a subject-matter expert with no apparent connection to the crime.

    But the real mystery is, “What happened to Quentin?”

    Do primitive thoughts put up a block you can’t read through?

    Kinda reminds me of “Redshirts”, when everyone on the Starship Intrepid realizes they are characters in a bad basic cable rip-off of “Star Trek”.

    In the next chapter, he breaks the fourth wall, then cleverly escapes through it.

    The writers of the various Law & Order series should read this. Except the final 2 panels…this is every episode ever.

    I’m a little confused, because I missed the last MDCLII episodes.

    I don’t mind occasional repeats on Friday, even though the strip only runs twice a week and the other one is always a repeat. But I wish they wouldn’t suppress the copyright date.

    Well, the mystery about Trump IS why does he work for a murderer (being Vlad Putin)……

    What? No red or blue pills? And here I was thinking it was a clever VR ruse for the AI overlords to be tapping young Billy’s electrical cranium power.

    I’m the kind of person that just jumps to the last frame.

    I like it. It’s a “deep” comment on the meta-way we think about movie plots, as opposed to how we think about real life. I’ve been interested in this a long time. Seeing this strip just now gave me a notion that aliens might think this way — or people in the future. If there is a future. Mr. Bolling is the brainy cartoonist.
