What the heck? Is this a hallucination or something? It seems her only injury is from bashing her head on the wall....

Methinks an FIB trick. But there's no indication how badly she's injured.

This also means Soul-Son might be a fraud...

Here's my theory about today's strip.

Mist knows that three people disappeared and never came back, and knows that Katherine knows what happened to him. And, he has the ability to scan people's fears somehow, giving him a knowledge that Kath was afraid of Fanboy. He can also appear to anyone however he wants. Or, he somehow knows about the time travel deal. (Maybe he's aware of the events in the 1930s and 1960s?)

He also might be using that 666 symbology to use Rikk's religion against him. Basically he seems to be playing with people's minds and misdirecting them while gathering intelligence. Focus on Fanboy which they assume he has no knowledge of, focus on the 'devil', etc.

Unholy crap! Guess that pointing guns at people's heads in cons works :)

Is it Mist, playing a dark dellusion on Kath?

Well, shit.

I mean, I made the jokes about Tim being back, but I didn't expect it, ESPECALLY Timmespin.

Tom'll be happy though.

Tom will be happy his evil and very unstable equivelent has returned from not only the dead but another time...

FRELL!

(and then, for the second time this week, KL has another odd notion!)

What if this Mist IS from the other timeline?! What if he brought TimtF back with him?

Or... or it's a horrible trick with imaginations. Say, what if Mist ISN'T doing it, and that was all a horrible trick that was played on Rikk a little while ago so he thinks it's because of Mist?

Actually, the way the panel is drawn, it wouldn't surprise me if it's Kath's mind fucking with her. I mean she almost died in those steam tunnels, that sort of thing's gonna mess you up. Some homeless bum with Tim's build stumbles towards Kath to ask for a dollar and she turns around and for a second she thinks it's Tim come to finish what he started. She stumbles backwards in horror and bangs her head hard on the brick wall behind her.

Hey... Kal-el... Jor-el... I never noticed how they use the same suffix as angel names before. I wonder...

Uh... anyway, last night I thought Kath actually got shot and there was blood on the wall. Now seeing it in... er... a second time, I see she just hit her head against the wall.

I think hallucinations are gonna be running everyone rampant now.

On a friday. How typical.
So many questions. Is that really Timmespin? If so, how did he get there? If not, who is this, and how does he know about Timmespin?
But all these questions are secondary to the biggy:
Is Kath dead?!

Ahhh... but Sun Tzu,
T told us all that Fans! would be running all week for this storyline. So Friday is just the comic before Saturday's.

It's only a cliffhanger if T goes to someone else for those two days, like Shanna.

Ah, good, I'm not the only one who had problems interpreting the laser as a snake.

Hmmm, aren't sharp blows to the back of the head the number one cause of accidental death? Geeze, and this one drew blood.

Heh, we go from Kath doing her best Kurt Cobain impression to Guth destroying Tim's mind with "...I would be amenable." :o

Sheer... Unadulterated... Brilliance...

Looks like T just sprinted past Hecubus on the EVIL list and is nipping at Cthulhu's heels with that one. :D
There is no TRUTH. There is no REALITY. There is no CONSISTENCY. There are no ABSOLUTE STATEMENTS. I'm very probably wrong...

For the angels, "-el" usually means "of G-d" as in "lion of G-d" or "strong man of G-d".

As for the Kryptonese, "Kal-El" means "Star Child", but "El" is also the family name, probably with "El" meaning "star". I haven't been able to find the meaning of "Jor-El".

Love the comic. Just came to the forum to try to figure out what was happening in the jumping storylines.
I love both meanings of "Got fur?"

I think Jor means "rock" in Kryptonian.
