A minor concern.
Was it worth it, Kat? Was it really?
Also the Shadowmen symbol appeared on Jeanne's dueling jacket a few chapters back.
Oh yeah, that scene
I'm sure Robot's worried Arthur will tell Kat about the whole robot cult thing. Also, I just realized the seraphs are the only robots without green eyes. Interesting...
"A minor concern" Oh you Brits and your love of understatement. Or maybe... Was that a pause, Arthur? Have you been "omitting certain truths" about the depths of Robot's relationship with Kat to Juliette and the rest of the Shadow Men?
Ah! Very impressive, Tom, as usual...
Should be 'led' in the fourth panel. Love the comic! :D
and so the angel found what she had sown.
Totes worth it.
I will be extremely disappointed if these guys are on the up-and-up. We've seen these guys many times, and they were never all "puppy love" on each other. The way they acted was what teenagers think of love.
Plus springing these other guys who happen to be working against the Court is just too late. It cuts out the loneliness that this comic is supposed to be all about. It's just these kids versus the world.
the page with arthur is here http://www.gunnerkrigg.com/?p=1294 if anyone was looking for it
The robot cult is real, it's happening, it's creepy as can be and Kat is going to have to deal with it now. Should be good times.
Minor niggle: The past tense of the verb "to lead" is "led"
The end of "thread"
As glad as I am that the Court robots are thinking for themselves as usual, I'll admit I'm still a bit creeped out.
HE WAS THEREEEEEE. *goes back to page to confirm*
Was Arthur protecting Robot?
Still worth it though...
...and yet another barely noticed graphic on a long-ago panel (http://www.gunnerkrigg.com/?p=1294 was 550+ pages ago, in "Thread") comes back into the foreground.
That's not sinister at all...
In the bottom left panel, should that be "led"?
Whats YOUR deal, kat?!
Thus marking the end of Kat and Pax as a couple. CALLED IT!!!
I think that we can add the robots as another faction in the Court that have their own agendas and their own goals that may not mesh properly with anyone else's.
That poster in panel 6...
Love your work! Just a small typo: "led", not "lead". If "lead" is pronounced like "led", it means the heavy metal or the graphite in a pencil.
What chapter is that page from?!?!?
"led me", perhaps?
So now Robot knows two things: 1) the Court in the form of the Shadow Men keeps track of his parareligious movement, and 2) Arthur/Romeo and Juliette could also possibly ruin Robots relationship with Kat by telling her of how Robot uses Kats work to further the movements agenda. I think that he will be _very_ generous if it comes to relinquish his claim on the new body that Kat is growing now. No, by all means! Let Arthur have it! No problem! I can wait!
Chapter 45 (Page 1,294). And who could forget the Seraphs' attempt at making the Cruise Ship flesh?
"Oh, you mean how they're starting a cult around me? Nah, don't worry, they just do that sometimes"

A minor concern, but worth it.
Oh noes is he going to be bad oh jeez is this a ploy based in fanaticism oh no
Here's the page for those wondering: http://www.gunnerkrigg.com/?p=1294
Huh, didn't remember seeing him there.
...Well there went most all of the nice feelings I had about husbando!bot Arthur. -sulks-
It was worth it.
I never noticed he was one of them.
This is going to be interesting.
Do Juliette's glasses in the first frame bother you guys or is it just me? She looks a bit... crosseyed. Also, finally! Those winged robots creep me the foop out. It's about time they show up again.
Uh-oh. I feel like there's stuff Arthur might not be telling Juliette
"lead" should be "led"
What's up with her eyes? 😂
4th panel should be "led" not "lead"
'led'. I doubt I'll be the only one to point it out, but just in case...
Another instance of why I stay away from "lead" and "led" if at all possible in my prose.
Technically, Arthur is incapable of lying.
And just when you thought your cult was gonna go unnoticed, Robot.
I'm really starting to worry about where all this robot stuff is going to lead...
It's been a long time since I thanked you for your brilliant work, Tom.
Thanks you SO much. Your comic is among those that make my life lighter these days.
Gosh I really like Arthur. That was super subtly judgy mixed with a warning.
Apparently the seraph taking over a cruise ship and trying to transform it into mechacthulhu is a "minor concern".
Seriously, it feels like that that whole chapter never happened at this point, which is a pity, because it's the best in the comic.
Hearing that two shadowmen keep tabs on this much makes me wonder how much the rest of then keep tabs on.
By the way, have there been any estimates at the courts population?
coyote could be out there somewhere, pretending to be a bush.
he must be stopped.
robot is remembering this page if anyone was curious: http://www.gunnerkrigg.com/?p=1608
I like how pages will reference past pages like that, so that I'll remember when something happened that's relevent now. But I wish you would also give the chapter and page number so that I can look back at that part.
is this the last page? or is my browser acting up again?
Everybody seems to forget that Robot, our Robot, is really one of the Seraph models too! Kat and Annie should be able to ask him what their deal is, but it doesn't seem like they've ever bothered to do that. Of course, Robot's playing his own game anyway...
To Grey Face's question of whether it was "worth it".... yeah. I mean.... girls.
Heck, author is the one robot that I could expect to still agree with her, even if he knew the original meaning- he knows a thing or two about messing up because of a pretty girl
Kat was part of them all along, it's just a scam! http://www.gunnerkrigg.com/?p=1452
