Firstly: XIN NOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!! No disrespect for the new artist coming on board, but I have fallen in love with your amazing work Xin and hope that my love of the comic is not diminished by your leaving. Best of luck with everything for sure!

Secondly: Nice job ending book two without answering ANY of the hanging questions we all have. Can Decrypted casters cast? What's going to happen with Stanley and the Capital switch? Does Charlie have an army sitting within reach of Spacerock? Find out next time, same Bat time, same Bat channel?

    It's the eyebrows combined with the smile. They're very angry, which gives him a malicious look.

    Wanda probably looks a bit sad because she knows the tool fate has on people.

    In retrospect, I'm sort of surprised that some stuff from book 2 just got sort of lost amongst the confusion. What's going on in Transylvito - why were we even seeing them in book 2, if they weren't gonna have an effect on anything? I though that for sure we'd get some resolution of Caesar and Don somehow.

    So ends book 2. Parson has just made sure that everyone will be on edge. How this will play out will make Book 3 a very interesting event. I hope Jack will break free from Wanda and freely join Parson. I do see Parson going it alone from GK and I wonder who will follow him when he does split? Great job Xin, you will be missed and I hope you have good luck in your new direction!

    A more interesting thought: Parson knows that Thinkagrams aren't secure now, I think. By declaring his intention to kill Charlie over them, he's basically giving Charlie a declaration of war.


    Or an attempt to sucker Charlie into firing the first shot in the MK. Seems too obvious to fool Charlie, though.

    Jojo on the likely consequences of firing the first shot:

    Hehehe, Black Jack.

    I'm actually a little weirded out by his appearance here. He seems more of a malicious zealot than a crazy clown. Which is of course an effect of the Arkenpliers... right? ..... right?
    *: That actually gives me thought. I might wanna look into the personalities of all Decrypted characters pre- and post- decryption. I seem to remember Ansom only reapplied his own fervor to a different ideal, Sylvia(?) went completely bonkers, and Ossomer changed so little that he was able to turn. Perhaps an effect of concentration applied by Wanda, the same way she can have a single long-lasting zombie versus lots and lots of short lived deadies? Thoughts for eating.

    I have got to say that I finally registered on the forums after reading this webcomic for a couple of years just to say that

    Jack and Ace look absolutely atrocious in red and black. It does not suit them at all. :D

    Ladies & gentlemen of the forum.
    I have one piece of advice for you
    No matter what a caster tells you
    There's no booping in the Magic Kingdom... NONE!
    Oh there's MAGIC in the Magic Kingdom
    But you don't want magic... you want boop
    And there's NO boop... in the Magic Kingdom

    Nice to see Jack again. He's looking good for a dead guy. :D

    Actually, he looks better than he did before. I have to wonder just how bad that long term trimancer link messed him up, and how much dying/decryption helped him.

    By the way, I think nobody's mentioned Marie's comments:

    "The last war EVER just started."

    Pretty epic.

    Yes, that is Jack's natural skin color. That's him to the left of Banhammer (it can be reasonably surmised). So either the eyes are his natural color, too, or it's another trick of some sort.

    Yup, definitely lost that bet about Ace. He doesn't look terribly thrilled about his new role, either. But I'm confident that he'll warm up to Parson, and vice versa. Even without juice, Ace and Jack would be invaluable strategic consultants to Parson.

    I cannot wait to see what Decrypted Jack is like, especially how he interacts with Wanda. The general assumption has been that he would be as loyal to her as the typical Decrypted. But it occurs to me -- what does that mean for someone like Jack who is (a) kinda loopy to start with on account of being a Foolamancer and (b) someone who knows Wanda intimately. Is he really going to be all "Oh my Dark Sexy Majesty!!" like Ansom was? Or is he going to serve Wanda by giving her what he thinks she needs instead of what she says she wants? What game will they play next, indeed?

    Um. Parson wants to kill Charlie now? Not just get him out of the picture? Holy crap.

    Not sure about Wanda's expression in the last panel. I'd almost say she has something weighing on her conscience, except... well, you know. Also, is she looking ahead, or at Sizemore?

    And yeah, BlackJack does look a little maniacal. A strange contrast to Wanda... I've always thought that Wanda was at her scariest when she looked most human. See panel 7 here. But Jack seems to have lost his capricious nature.

    Lastly, I guess this marks Xin's last comic. Take care Xin, we'll miss you.

    I read Wanda as serine and at peace with Fate; she is confident that she's on the right path.

    Jack, he looks like a shark: predatory and ruthless.

    Xin, So long, and thanks for your great work.

    Now to prepare ourselves for another gear shift of art styles.
