Congrats on your new puppy, Nora

ECCC Overstock Book Sale!

For a very limited time, you can grab Vol 2, Vol 3, Vol 4 or Vol 5 of Widdershins for only $3 shipping within the United States, instead of the usual $11 I have to charge. That’s a pretty huge saving! There’s not too many of these going, so grab one while you can!

This only applies to Vols 2-5 individually, not the multibook pack or Vol 1. Cheaper shipping applies only to America, not Canada or other nearby countries, many apologies!

    Doing tricks for the kids. That’s adorable. :)

    • Reason #133 to love our favorite magician/wizard.

      • Bieeanda

        Yeah. He’s good people. :)

  • Charlotte

    I don’t get this one :( Why does the letter make Harry mad? Are we supposed to know what the letter is about at all?

    • Euodiachloris

      It’ll bring the dreaded Mother. A fearsome beast best avoided. ;)

    • MsElloon

      I think it’s more that her mother will be visiting – as seen from Nicola and Harry’s conversation in the last chapter, they don’t seem to get along with their parents all that well.

  • Eve

    I’m sure they won’t bring any sins or curses back with them.

    They may bring Mal back with them, which is a bit worse.

  • Euodiachloris

    Ah. There’s the family issue in a nutshell. Other people see danger signs and move away. Those with Barber inclinations see an invitation. :P

  • Jeff Eppenbach

    Someone just spotted a vital clue! Mmph indeed!

    Cassandra’s new puppy is adorable! I hope Nora wanted a puppy because Cassandra doesn’t look like she’ll let go.

    • Of course she does. Not everyone’s a dog person, true, but even those who don’t like dogs love puppies.

  • Yes, best to keep the monsters away from the puppies and children . . . the monsters would never survive!

  • So, are we going to meet their parents in this story?

    Is Cassandra behind Sid because she wants to discover how he makes things happen?

    And finaly, I’m not sure Nicola’s word is worth anything in this case. Not because she wouldn’t be reliable, but because of what we’ve seen in last panel from former story… Obviously, this place is not safe anymore. Let’s hope the sins will be busy enough elsewhere.

    • And, I love how the sisters can communicate with few words.

  • AJ

    My small children are looking over my shoulder while I’m reading this and trying to divine which people are related how to which others. Five-year-old thinks that obviously Cassandra is Nicola’s daughter. Two-year-old likes “the fluffy one with the hair” also known as Cat.

  • MarriStenberg

    Cat knows who’s judgement to trust.

    d’ye ken, this’s the first place I’ve seen farm kids wearing wellies, like real farm kids do. good on you!

    • I nearly inked them in their little dress shoes before realising that was silly. Honestly, they should have changed clothes too. Ah well, next time!

      • Sanjay Merchant

        Well, I’m assuming the cool colors in the sky indicate that it’s dawn (or shortly thereafter), so maybe they slept in their dress clothes and got up early specifically to say goodbye to everybody?

      • Dud

        Perhaps you should have done – vulcanised rubber wasn’t available until the 1850’s – at about now story-time leather wellingtons were becoming fashionable for men – and in use by some cavalry regiments but they looked much more like a conventional boot with a low toe. Round toed rubber wellies became available to the public in large quantities just after WWII – child sizes about 10 years later.

        • I specifically didn’t make them rubber, they’re essentially just hard-wearing leather boots. I have google too, you see!

          • Dud

            Oops! It’s so hard to see the stitching at the scale you draw. Note to self: Must get a bigger screen…

  • Eddie’s first daughter is like to be wanting a Sidney of her own. Probably going to return to her room to write some rather PG-13 things in her diary.

  • Raunchy

    Does Sid always have to check his pockets before he leaves anywhere?

    • It’s definitely a good idea for him, that is for sure.
