    Amazing artwork on this one. I would say it's some of the best we've seen yet. I just love the way Slately is portrayed here. I think he is looking a bit *pawned* :P

    Very interesting to see how Charlie presents himself. Presumably he has total control over his appearance in the thinkagram space. Who is he pretending to be in panel 8 though? I don't recognize the character. Presumably it's a villain of some type given his other forms: Emperor Palpatine, Dr Doom, Agent Smith, General Zod, Khan, Beetlejuice, the Joker. If I'm right about Charlie controlling his appearance, that also means he has knowledge of our pop culture. He might be getting that from the Arkendish, but does anyone else think it's likely he's from our world and was summoned into Erfworld somehow, like Parson?

    Slately's transformation is a nice touch, though perhaps a little heavy-handed.

    Charlie as the Joker. Oh dear sweet Titans yes.

    Also...I too am intrigued by the use of the word "kill." It could be just because the line doesn't carry as much meaning if Rob had stuck to Erfian conventions, but...

    That gave me the clue. I've figured Charlie out!

    He's a doppleganger!

    Charlie is looking much more sinister now that he's been established as the villain of the story.

    Yeah, I think you're right. So the complete list:

    1) Darth Sidious AKA Emperor Palpatine (Star Wars)
    2) Dr Doom (Marvel Comics)
    3) Dr Gero (Dragonball Z)
    4) Agent Smith (The Matrix)
    5) General Zod (Superman)
    6) Khan (Star Trek)
    7) Beetlejuice
    8) Joker (Batman)

    I will say i am buying more and more into the "Charlie is also from Parson's world" idea. It would explain why he fears/respects Parson as a legitimate threat to him

    If we want to be completely accurate, the third one (from panel 8) is probably Android 20, Dr Gero's creation in his quest for immortality, which contains Gero's revived brain on a mechanical body (created to resemble the original).

    So.. Charlie just got honest about his real intentions for Parson. I would guess there is some Predictamancy out there stating that Charlie will be taken down by Parson or someone like him and, after Gobwin Knob, Charlie is now taking it fairly seriously.

    King Slately II is someone who Charlie can manipulate and who he can reveal his true intentions to as the dupe won't last the turn. Notice they aren't even talking about schmuckers anymore and Slately II appears to be okay with that for now.

    It now appears that since the Carnymancy gambit in the Magic Kingdom failed, it is now in Charlie's interest to let Parson through to Jetstone OR to somehow send a Jetstone sortie through. I hope its not the latter as a tri-mancer link though interesting, is getting a bit threadbare even with Charlie as the thinkamancer in the link. Although I do wonder what useful combinations would derive from a dollamancer, dittomancer, and healomancer. Perhaps a self healing doll unit?

    We also know that Charlie's secondary goal (for now) is to get the ArkenHammer and ArkenPliers under his control. I wonder if he means to somehow keep Wanda in the Magic Kingdom or if he has a plan to kill both Parson and Wanda at Jetstone. I also want to think he will be launching an attack on Gobwin Knob but I am not sure how. Perhaps another hobgoblin rebellion? (the one that took out King Saline IV was engineered by Wanda, I would venture to guess)

    Don't know about you, folks, but I'd call that confirmation that Charlie either is from Earth, or can see Earth thanks to the Arkendish.

    Erfworlders don't say "kill".
