    Now I’m curious as to whether there’s a reason everyone is wearing aquamarine tones…

    • GristleMcNerd

      ‘Cause it looks great?

    • Mark van Esch

      Current fashion trend of that season?

    • Bieeanda

      Little fishy, isn’t it?

      • ShadeTail

        Well, *something* smells off, anyway.

    • Sanjay Merchant

      It’s a bit dark for aquamarine. I hate to go there, because it seems like a cheap movie reference, but it honestly is closer to cerulean….

      (Yes, I did just look up a bunch of color names on Google. Why do you ask?)

      • Awlwren

        Nah, cerulean is much less green. I’d go with straight up teal. And I’d guess it’s the guild colors?

    • alurker

      It’s the new black, don’t you know?

  • Hurray! There’s nothing like an unexpected Widdershins to rescue what has been, frankly, a pretty crap week. Of course if Tuesday is filler that means we don’t get the next episode until a week on Saturday. :-(

  • MoeLane

    I see three whiners feeling upset and sorry for themselves in front of a bulletin board that has plenty of jobs on it. Three apiece for them, in fact. Sheesh. :)

    • Sanjay Merchant

      At least one of which is marked “URGENT” and I believe two others as “DANGEROUS”. Surely one or two of those and maybe spending the earnings on a publicist rather than a cerulean jacket would help them outshine Mr. Barber.

      • DavidArgall

        Let’s not be too harsh on these losers. Having looked at enough real such boards, I feel save in saying the “urgent” ones will start the middle of next month, if funding comes thru [You are to be ready on the 15, even tho they won’t be acting until the 22nd], and the “dangerous” are quite suicidal. The others require the 7th son of the 7th son and/or 30 years experience at age 25… Of course they are still busy talking instead of scouring the board for the one posting that is actually reasonable, but they are [probably] not complete slackers.

        • MoeLane

          Apropos of nothing, but this particular comic is even *funnier* if you see it after playing Witcher: Wild Hunt for four days running.

          • Don’t taunt me, I’m desperate to play that but I had to prep for the convention!

            • MoeLane

              You made the right call. This game is insidious in its time-sucking activities.

    • Geoff

      “Are we speaking LOUDLY enough to be CLEAR that we are neither GRUDGINGLY IMPRESSED nor JEALOUS?”

  • Qwertystop

    Bounty hunting as a “noble profession”?

    • It’s a bit worrying that there are enough problems with rogue magic that Hunter can be a profession. There are nine active problems current at Widdershins alone, two of which are flagged as dangerous. I’m starting to think Ms mad-old-witch Fairburn may have been right after all. I wonder if the pro-magic mayor, having been on the wrong end of three major magical incidents already (if you count the theatre blowing up in the middle of his hustings speech), is starting to have second thoughts too.

      • Sapphire altera

        Where do you get nine from?

        (Edit: nvm– the job board behind the whiners. I can’t count today apparently.)

  • Euodiachloris

    Sniping, snarking, whinging and whining seem to be their major endeavours, at least. ;P

  • Sanjay Merchant

    So, Henry Barber wasn’t the font of the awesomeness of the Barber family? There are yet more generations of Barber Badassery? Do tell, Ms. Ashwin, do tell!

  • David

    So my genderbend headcanon for harry comes to a conclusion…with her father.

    • Nightsbridge

      grandfather technically

  • Wow – who knew they had hipsters back then?

    • Sapphire altera

      Hipsters have been around since WELL before it was cool.

  • Darkoneko Hellsing

    hmpf !

    • Darkoneko Hellsing

      Putting the petty jealousy aside, they’re right : no one else would get away with bringing a bag of fish, pretending there’s a magic coin in one of them, and get away with it.

  • Del

    Mean kids. Peer pressure.

    Somebody is having a tough time with adolescence!

  • Apvogt

    Henry would like to apologize for doing his job well and getting things done, no matter the amount of dirt and mud he has to wade through. He is sorry he doesn’t camp out in front of the job board, and gripe when others do better than him.

  • Anani Mouse

    Poor henry!!!

  • Michael Brewer

    …You know, he looks a bit like The O’Malley when he was younger.

    • Sapphire altera

      It’s the scarf and the glum expression :P

      • Columbine

        Also the unfortunate facial hair.

  • WitUnderPressure

    DBJ, FOO’

  • Columbine

    I’ve never been to MCM. Have fun! Mostly I’m loving all the coats on here. Why don’t we have coats like that anymore?

  • Saw you guys there, thank you for signing my book and the nice chat :)
    Added the comic to my favs list ^_^

    • Thanks for coming by! :D hope you had as great a time as we did!

  • Sanjay Merchant

    By the way, did you spot any Barber Sisters cosplay?

    • Nah, never had a cosplayer, it’d be amazing to see though!
