Whew! And with this dramatically appropriate moment, we’re at page 600 of Widdershins! Hooray! This is where the chapter really begins.

I’ll be taking a break next week to buffer up for the upcoming cons I’m at, and to finish off production of the print edition of Vol 6. During that week, a buddy of mine is going to entertain you with some guest strips, look out for those Tuesday and Friday, then I’ll be back the week after.

  • Foehn

    Mal is such a boss in that first panel.

    (is Wolfe going to help by playing violin? I bet Wolfe will help by playing violin)

  • Khlovia

    It’s never a good sign when the map starts fizzing….

    • Sanjay Merchant

      In fairness, it’s been doing that since they imbued it with curiosity.

  • Sanjay Merchant

    Huh, I wonder if Nicola, Henry, and Isabelle being in the third panel of this means that the whole “Take Granddad to a doctor!” thing wasn’t just a convenient way to get them offstage, but rather that they will have their own awesomeness to do.

  • Sanjay Merchant

    Also, Kate, I’m guessing this, rather than Verity Cunningham’s arrival, is what you meant by throwing a spanner into our earlier discussions about “Who’s the Hero, Lancer, etc.?”: That our two leading candidates for The Hero (ie Mal and Harry) are off on another plane, so the group in Widdershins proper has a different dynamic than we thought.

    Guess if they touch the other doors, they alert the other witches.

    • Dud

      Grandma Izzy just felt it at some distance without a connection. Ben and Sid were startled by it close by. I’m pretty sure the magical universe just went ‘ting’ in which case the other witches just sensed it. So did the deadlies.

      Effectively Mal just rang the starting bell.

  • Darkoneko Hellsing

    Hang in there, gramp’

  • rainycity1

    Love the scarf flip.

    • Tsapki

      Scarfs are the new capes!

      • The Shadow had a scarf cape before it was cool

  • Oh, yeah – here it is – the “determined heroes bravely march into battle against overwhelming odds” montage.

  • tali

    Ooooh, look at Mal, being all boss-like, nice :)

  • Jumpy Joey

    The story is awesome and I can’t wait to see what happens next, I’ve got a question though. Will there be a Kickstarter for Curtain Call where you can buy all the seven books? I’d love to have them all and I’ve missed out on previous Kickstarters.

    • There most definitely will, though it might be later in the year than my usual effort.

  • 600 pages! Wo Ho! So, Ms Ashwin, what advice would you give your past self when you were first starting? Hopefully not the same as Doc:

  • plore

    I am just glad to see that henry is still alive.

    • Sanjay Merchant

      Almost a pity Wolfe isn’t with them, or we could say he’s doing lechery and he’s still alive. :-P

  • Euodiachloris

    When sheer stubbornness transforms into determination… :)

  • Gils

    PLEASE tell me there is 600 more comics coming and that this isn’t like a final story arc. I like this comic. Reading it since the beginning.

    • McRocky71

      Kate has already mentioned that the next story continues in the Barber’s Widdershins with a new character who has already appeared in the background in previous chapters.

    • Got a few more ideas yet, don’t worry!

  • KaReN

    I was trying to figure out whose bag that was on the background. Sid had it but I didn’t see him give it to Harry. However, as Harry and Mal entered the door, I saw that Harry was wearing it over her right shoulder.

    • Maria Gerasimova

      The items imbued by deadlies’ ermmm… specificities.

  • Nightsbridge

    and now the game TRULY begins

  • Chris the Blue

    Dang this was a good build up.

  • Doctor_Seuth

    Right, got the scarf, I guess this’ll have to do for the Companion… now where’s me ruddy phone booth?
