    I think there's a typo in the latter third of the page?

    "Hadn't she Decrypted Ivan and Wanda without the 'pliers?" Don't think that should be Wanda, right?

    A nice look at what's going on in Charles' head. Almost seems to parallel the look into Parson's head in p285. Feels like the thrilling continuation of the Battle of Portal Park is right around the corner.

    Right. I think it should be Ivan and "Claud."
    EDIT: Or perhaps Marie...

    This update is simply incredible. There are SO many wordplays, so many revelations and insights. Tons of tight, well-written text. Amazing art, as always, with spectacular imagery.

    Love that Charlie has to mind his P's (if not blatant Q's).
    Love that Eleanor is crafting an Etsy with her unspent juice.
    Love that Jojo maintains an internal patter even with himself.

    Can anyone place the Eleanor reference/is it significant? Eleanor Roosevelt, maybe? Eleanor Marx (Karl Marx's daughter)? Elinor Smith (an aviator)? Ellie Woodcomb from the Chuck TV series? EDIT: Maybe a Black Sails reference? Haven't seen the show...

    What about the ringmaster signamancy from Charlie in the call to Jojo? Maybe a Charlie Chaplin/The Circus reference? That might be a stretch...

    Regardless, two thumbs up for this one. Spectacular.

    I find it really interesting about how much Charlie doesn't know/understand about what the Great Minds are capable of.

    Oh god, I haven't even read it yet, but that first line about not being able to pause multiplayer. Flashbacks, like a war vet. :(

    No one knew Wanda had the pliers when she decrypted Ivan and Claud.

    Both the wings on the crests point to "F" & "A" but I'm not sure what the Significance of that is.

    Yes, but she didn't decrypt herself.

    I'm thinking Eleanor Rigby.
    "Ah, look at all the lonely people!
    Ah, look at all the lonely people!
    Eleanor Rigby picks up the rice
    In the church where a wedding has been
    Lives in a dream
    Waits at the window
    Wearing the face that she keeps in a jar by the door
    Who is it for?"

    BUT... that's not why I came to the forums. I think I know who "Shirley" is! Not Shirley Temple, exactly, but Shirley Booth, who played "Hazel" on the self-named TV series, circa 1961-1966. Some of the terms Shirley uses are the same, or very similar to that character. She called kids "sport" and "champ," and the lady of the house "Missy," and she was always after her boss to take better care of himself. I can almost hear her inflections in the tower's conversations with Charlie.

    "Chuck Dogers", neat Looney Tunes reference.

    And Jojo's two marks are Buck and Roger! Sigh, to think it took that previous joke to see how their signamancy links up.



    Hmm Eleanor is 3000 turns old.
    3000 divided by 365.25 (adjusting for leapyears) is 8.21917808
    8.21917808 times is (to two decimal places) 24.64.

    Subtract 24.64 by [the difference between now (2017) and the year the first episode of the Duck Dodgers episode was released (2003), divided by 100] and you'll get what is roughly 24.50. Or "Twenty Four, and One Half"

    Which is the exact century Duck Dodgers is set in!

    Huh, well Charlie's back in play, Parson's got a gambit brewing even if he's been manipulated into it it may not be a bad one, Wanda and Isaac are working together and Marie might still have something up her sleeve. Anyone currently in play I missed?
