I have a theory: don't use names that bring up incredibly creepy crap when googled and people will actually pay attention to what you have to say

Seems odd that they aren't living together even if she is under restriction.

No, break in Kat, break all his stuff, BREAK HIS STUPID FACE.

Frankly, I'm amazed Coyote isn't intervening personally yet.

Way to go Kat!

Ooh are we gonna get a whole spy stealthy page? Complete with ninja masks and gear? Plus I'm curious about what they will find.

Is that a face you can say no to, Kat?

22 May 2015 | 12:03 AM

Also, how do you feel about double negatives?

Kat knows that Tony isn't to be trusted at all, and she has taken matters in her hands, atta girl.

Oh, yes. The Court's mediums are not pleased. Coyote is not pleased. Ysengrin...oh, hell yes. Best graphic novel on the Web.

Shut up Annie! Kat, the burglar will take care of it.

Umm... Annie's speech bubble in panel 2. Is it supposed to be that colour?

I LOVE KAT SO MUCH. THANK YOU TOM. SNEAK INDEED. YOU ARE THE SNEAK TOM!!

Stop, Annie, just stop. Your complacency is tiresome. Tom, please please please, move her along.

How long before Zimmy appears on the scene and cuts out Carver Sr's control thingie?

22 May 2015 | 12:28 AM
Arianne

I really do think that Reynard should be taken back to Annie to be ordered to start obeying Mr. Carver for her sake and that this is only for a year and popped back to Mr. Carver's place . If Kat goes than She'll sink to Boxbot level in my book. I know that Kat wants to know about Why Mr. Carver arrived here unannounced and I think that Annie wants t know too, but, Annie did asked Kat not to check . However, Parley and Smitty could go out and pop right back in .I don't like the idea that Reynard gets rescued if that's what this is about. It sounds like a good idea, but it won't be. Something will go wrong . Coyote could be genuinely mad or be secretly scheming with Mr. Carver about something and that's why Mr. Carver is missing a hand . I don't know with Coyote.

I'm reminded of John Mulaney's story of trashing an a**hole teacher's house...I like it

22 May 2015 | 12:33 AM

It sounds like someone's planning a search & rescue mission for Reynard.

22 May 2015 | 12:36 AM

That's a tall order there, Annie.

22 May 2015 | 12:48 AM

With all respect, Annie: you really aren't fine. What's happening here is not okay, and you need to let the people who care about you help you.

22 May 2015 | 1:13 AM

Also for hiding the body and never speaking of it again.

22 May 2015 | 1:24 AM
acelightning

"He made you cut your hair?" "No! He didn't!" (He did the cutting himself.) And "Tell Coyote and Ysengrin to be patient..." She's planning *something* - although she's right to be nervous about Kat having Parley bip them into Anthony's quarters.

22 May 2015 | 1:24 AM

That's always fun, finding out what other kids parents are hiding.

22 May 2015 | 1:26 AM

Finally. Go and steal Renard! And this will be the real test for Kat and Annies friendship.

22 May 2015 | 1:45 AM
Echon

Uuugh, how do we explain to Coyote and Ysergin that Annie's will is completely compromised by her father and they need to stage a rescue?

22 May 2015 | 1:46 AM
Cinderella man

This could get even worse than ugly. ALSO: Did Annie just say that? If that is true, then... Did she also choose those clothes all by herself? I mean... woot?

You know you're a poor excuse of a father when a trickster god and an unstable former medium show more paternal instinct than you.

Hah! The title now makes sense. I hope they find out what he's up to...

Kat, will you please break into Anthony's house? ...Besides, if you have a teleporter, who says it's 'breaking'? XD

22 May 2015 | 2:33 AM

Why is Annie being such a pushover? The guy hasn't been in her life. He may be her Father, but he ain't her Dad. Giving up her friend Renard so easy was total bs. Show some fire...

22 May 2015 | 2:56 AM
Setirb

Oh I would break alright. Not into his house, but probably a part of his body. Pretty sure he can still teach with a broken arm >.>

"Sorry, Annie, but I just bought this new crowbar, and I desperately need to break a few locks."

22 May 2015 | 3:26 AM
Pablo

...and Annie remains in denial about what her father has done. Did he "make" her cut her hair? Maybe not: more likely, he disparaged her long hair to the point that she cut it off to please him.

22 May 2015 | 3:30 AM
Nikary

Of course Coyote wouldn't be happy about this. He's quite fond both of Annie and Renard. And now I'm imagining Ysengrin leading a rescue mission. Would be awesome... despite all the possible embarassment.

22 May 2015 | 3:46 AM
Janet Brown

... YOU MEAN TO TELL ME THAT CUTTING ANNIE OFF FROM THE FOREST WAS NOT ACTUALLY THE A-HOLES' DECISION TO MAKE?!? I thought he had fixed it with the school staff, who liaisoned with the forest to get Annie fired, but actually, Annie was so thoroughly conditioned to do anything Daddy Dearest said ... Yeah, Annie needs therapy, yesterday.

22 May 2015 | 3:54 AM

Even I know this is a bad idea.

22 May 2015 | 4:10 AM
Arielle

Angry ysengrin and coyote-- isn't this what we wanted? Parley looks like she does in the page where she hugs robot and shadow.

22 May 2015 | 4:17 AM
Proper

Ysengrin has the right of it.

22 May 2015 | 4:21 AM
spoiler talk

i think annie's father is trying to revive annie's mother by using renard's soul transfering powers on annie. when i see how he treats her, it is like a scientist talking to a lab rat..

22 May 2015 | 4:21 AM
Alexandra

She... She didn't deny it? That's big step. By the way, what do they intend to do?

Not to be crude, but the last panel conjures up the scene in "American Beauty" where Mr. Spacey ' s character's daughter is begging her best friend, "Please, just don't [engage any action that takes is primary direction from the reproductive system] my dad." Annie appears to have, among other things, the frustration of speaking a combination of words that she should never have to contemplate. And she still said please. And I still keep hearing a scared little rabbit voice (one with "iddie-biddie" antlers, coming out if Annie's mouth...

22 May 2015 | 4:47 AM
HystericBunny88

He DID! He did, he did, HE DID! Dammit Annie! Go Human Torch on that bastard! GAH!

Somehow it hadn't completely hit me that Annie wasn't living with Anthony till just now. What a failure at people Anthony is.

22 May 2015 | 4:59 AM
ElMariachi

Breaking into Anthony's house... knowing his technological and etheric knowledge and his level of preparation, that won't end well for Kat. Also Coyote being pissed off at something don't bode well either.

22 May 2015 | 4:59 AM
venn

This arc is pretty intense. Makes me quite uncomfortable to see Antimony deconstructed like this. Kat best girl!

22 May 2015 | 5:31 AM
Mint

Don't listen to her, Kat. :I

22 May 2015 | 5:51 AM
gair

Could her father's actions be considered hostile to the forest and cause some sort of escalation!?

22 May 2015 | 5:56 AM
DarkVisor

Kat needs to find out who, or what, that really is

22 May 2015 | 6:05 AM

She didn't say anything about robots being in her dad's house, Kat always seems to find those sorts of loopholes anyway.

22 May 2015 | 6:20 AM
phaelon

no can do, Annie. Kat aims to misbehave.

22 May 2015 | 6:21 AM
Richard Nimz

Kat makes no promises.

22 May 2015 | 6:42 AM

As I predicted. Coyote is bound to do something about all this.

22 May 2015 | 6:42 AM

HELL YES!!! The "Free Reynard" team is on the way!!

I really don't like this new Annie Im trying to be patient but I'm starting to lose interest in this. sigh.

When Renard escapes by taking his body and then dumping it, there will be some touching eulogies about what a fine fellow and caring father Anthony Carver was. (Relax -- I know none of this is going to happen.)

22 May 2015 | 7:41 AM
random person

why is annie not wanting kat to break into her dads house?!

22 May 2015 | 7:48 AM
Ud the Imp

Hm.......if I'm reading this right, the Court is most likely setting up Carver to be the fall guy for Coyote's wrath if the old dog's patience finally runs out. Though that's just my best case scenario theory. There's tons of unknown factors surrounding this situation that's left to be seen, and Annie cheating in class was merely the catalyst......

22 May 2015 | 7:56 AM
Michaelbot

Damn it Annie, this isn't you! Tom you had better damn well have a good reason to rob Annie of all her agency like this, it's endlessly heartbreaking to read.
