    Nicely played. *applause*

    • Darkoneko Hellsing

      Bravo ! Bravo !!

      • Jolly good show

        • Rachel McGonagill

          Encore! Encore!

          • Ocean Burning.

            Maybe let’s not encore!

            • Rachel McGonagill

              Hm, you’re probably right.

  • Nonesuch

    Well said, Wolfe. Well said. :)
    And yay, no more Envywear costumes!

    • GristleMcNerd

      Aw, I liked them. They were fancy, and the color’s nice. I wish I were that good at fashion design…

    • Phlebas

      But – what about the lovely boots? *sniff*

    • Sabreur

      But… I liked the costumes…

    • Liz

      Envy missed his calling as a fashion designer, imho.

    • Alétheia

      But.. but… no more Captain Tightpants

      …I mean…

      …nope. I have no good way to recover from that. Carry on. > >

      • Quite alright, I admit I am pretty sad to not be drawing those trousers any more

  • Euodiachloris

    If Envy’s a right pain, what is Lust? :P

    • Nonesuch

      You’re angling for a ‘pain in the toches’-pun, aren’t you?

      • Euodiachloris

        Noooooooooooo. <__> *whistles tunelessly*

    And we finally return to the reason why I started following Widdershins, back in 2011….. Harriet’s pipe! YAY!!!

    Yesterday, Feb 20, was International Pipe Smoking Day. It is not too late to celebrate with a bowl of tobacco for your very own.

    • Lady Philyra

      Or a kids bubble pipe. Do they still make those?

      • Del

        Sure they do! Right next to the bubblegum cigars and candy cigarettes1

  • MoeLane

    “…That was what the English call ‘putting in the boot,’ yes? It was rude of me, I know, but the spirit tried to make me stab a friend with a sword.”

  • John

    That circle looks about as roundish as the last one. Since the last one worked this one should be OK. At least this deadly won’t have the same type of pull on Harry as the last one did.

  • Emily

    And Wolfe for the win with the perfect closing line!

    Not related to this page, but something I’ve been wondering about for a while: how did O’Malley end up going by Mal instead of Jack? Did Wolfe start it (since he seems to be the only person in-comic who really calls Mal that – Ben still calls him O’Malley) or did Mal choose the nickname himself?

  • This is going to be hard on Mr Thackerey. Not only did his insecurity make him vulnerable to Envy, the fact that he succumbed while the rest of the party Saved the Day is only going to reinforce his lack of self-worth.

    • BaronHaynes

      He’s 0 for 2 so far, but Envy definitely compromised him the most. I think he’d be strongest against Sloth, given how hard he works to account for his lack of innate talent.

  • BaronHaynes

    I wonder how Ben will react when he realizes (or it’s pointed out to him) that Voss was able to fight off Envy, but he sat right down and watched until it was defeated. Like if Envy had found him instead of Voss, how would things have gone?

    I feel like we’re going to see different members of the team be the strong and weak links depending on what sins they’re up against. Harry was the most compromised by Wrath, Ben by Envy. I’m curious if we’ll see Wolfe ever succumb to anything, or if he really is as “unworkable” as Envy thought back in Chapter 5.

    • Jay

      Probably not Pride. I suspect he’s vulnerable to Lust ( Florrie, and she’s married! ). But I suspect everyone but Mal is going to have to find the philos inside their unresolved-pairing’s eros to beat Lust.

  • Now watch them get half way to the next location before someone realises that Mr Malik is still tied up back at the theatre.

    • John

      Then they have to argue with Verity about whether it’s worth going back for him.

  • Phoebusly

    Verity is going to be an absolute nightmare when it comes to Greed and Pride, isn’t she.

    I wonder if Voss will join the group? He’s beaten Envy more soundly than anyone and certainly proven his worth, but he might fall to Sloth, since it’d appeal to the part of him that wanted everything to be great without having to work for it.

  • Tikatu

    That little “Eh?” from Mal before the bag starts with the green fire shows perhaps a growing sensitivity to the spirits as they’re weakened. Looks like he’s growing into the part of witch.

  • JWLM

    I’m liking how Harry says “We’re on” in the middle of an arc built around theatrical performance.

    • Maria Gerasimova

      And I like how she says it her back turned to the imbued stone :)
      She’s always on alert.

  • SaberRoy

    You know i’m kinda curious about how it’s going to work with Lust, the others being weakened and sent back through like this makes sense as they all know them already, but it feels unlikely that they will be able to do the same with Lust. Makes me wonder how that encounter may go, if it goes at all. They didn’t show up on the map right? The group might decided to head back to the ark after they finished Sloth from lack of ideas, or maybe Lust finds them, which could lead to all sorts of things though the first one that pops into my head is capturing them and holding them long enough Harry gets worried and has to go look for them… I’m probably way off but it’s interesting to think about.

    • John

      Greed’s the one they have to beat right before Lust, but I do think Harry’s going to have to come out into the real world to play. After all, her name is still recognizable enough in Alexa King’s day that she figured out who Nora’s sister was from fragmentary clues and hiding between while important and useful leads more to “unsung hero” territory than it does to “household name” territory.

      • Haven

        Maybe. It could be that Harry makes her name for something after this arc, and her role in these events only becomes known after people look further into her history. (If nothing else, she did save Victoria that one time, even if she wasn’t a queen yet.)

    Panel 5: Ya know, it’s things like this that will really make me miss Envy. Okay, maybe not that much.

  • Vee takes a bow…

  • Ocean Burning.

    Guys, I keep thinking about something… What is that mysterious shadowy figure in the background of the fourth panel? Does it bear any resemblance to a certain councilwoman?
