We hitherto don't know of his own abilities, but he seems so much less stone-like now...I wonder if he's doing what Annie does?

Oh man. I wish he'd show Annie any of this friendliness. I understand she's in trouble but man...

Oh god it's smiling. Seriously though, it's interesting to see just how laid-back tony is with Donny. It's a stark comparison to his cold demeanor with Annie.

29 Jul 2015 | 12:11 AM
UncleBibby

if tony isnt the person who seperated Annie's fire from her body, then did he really just come back to work with the court & be closer to annie? will we find out on friday what he came back for? and did him losing his hand have anything to do with renard or annie or was it from when zimmy psychic-punched him back when annie got comatose? was it just some random accident that has nothing to do with anything we know about? plus: i have a feeling annie's fire-side is gonna jump out of the blinkerstone and do something.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!! Tony's smiling! It's a sign of the apocalypse! Save yourselves! Wait... is he about to say he came back because he missed Annie? How can you humanize that turd after everything he's done?

That prosthetic looks pretty unusual, I thought most of them hooked round the shoulder? I suppose if it's more decorative than functional you don't need to attach it there though.

Well so much for what I said on Monday, this man actually does have expressions. So I guess he's cool enough to show some expression to an old friend, but not to his own daughter.

So he can smile, astounding! I'm both intrigued and horrified at the potential of this revelation. I mean, he's even cracking jokes about his missing hand...this could either end up being really good, or really, REALLY bad.

It's.. worse when he's human. Means he actually thinks he's doing the right thing by Annie. And not losing all that much sleep over it either.

WHAT THE H E L L IS HE DOING? ACTING LIKE A PERSON? I am satisfied to see that Annie cut her own hair though. It is a reminder that she is still not grown up. I'm looking forward to the next part!

Tom Billings

Well, we can hope for no commercial trolls selling prosthetics. Still, since Anthony says he did not come back because of the lack of a hand, he had another reason. I still favor the court calling him back to "deal with your daughter". They were not pleased when Coyote designated Annie as a medium, and Tony is one of the few people who can have a definite hold on her by now. Coyote's designation of a fire elemental/human cross as a medium has disturbed the established balance between the Court and Coyote's people. We may now get to see deeper into the relationship between the Court and the Wood.

29 Jul 2015 | 1:11 AM

The great rending in twain of the protocontinent Pangaea was as naught to the tumult caused to Tony's face by his cracking a smile. I'm thinking he's seen things we wouldn't believe...

He has activated his protocols for visible emotions, I see. Also, I don't blame him for not telling Annie about what happened to his hand, the sight is horrifying. I still wonder how he could do that operation with only one hand, though.

I would still say he's clueless, but not a jerk. I've suspected ever since everyone started calling him abusive that this would be a plot twist. Tom has never and will never put an insensitive person in this comic. Even Ysengrin appeared to be like Anthony before he opened up in chapter 26. From the looks of it, him and Annie will get along just fine once they patch things up. Unless Tom adds another plot twist. That wouldn't be surprising, either.

29 Jul 2015 | 4:17 AM

Would be interesting if after getting him drunk they find out he's found a way for his daughter to keep her spirit if ever she had a child. Like the way a ember can create a new fire without taking from the original. How guilty would they all feel.

29 Jul 2015 | 5:35 AM

Whoa! I just realized - Annie's classmates used to think she's weird and distant for the most part - except for Kat, who she's very open with. Does this mean that Donny is to Tony like Kat is to Annie? If it is, then 1)wow, Tom, that was very sneaky and brilliantly done and, 2)I hope Annie gets back to the forest and her medium duties quickly, before she loses all the progress she made on the friends-making front.

You know, Tony, your best friend's daughter could hook you up with a really sweet robotic prosthetic arm. One that can actually function like a normal hand and grab/hold things. Oh, wait. That's right. She currently hates your guts for how you treat her best friend. Still, whatever happened to him must have been pretty gnarly.

They can clone bodies in the Court. Why can't they clone hands?

..... How many people are going to go "Oh my god, he's human! why did you make him less hate-able?!" Because I know I'm one of them.

Oh wow, I feel very silly for not even considering that the fake hand could mean the end of a career in surgery. :(

Why did he come back?

This guy smiles for some alcohol but did not for Antimony. He is not honest either with Annie or with Donald. Both options are slightly terrifying.

Holy wow he has an emotion

He's not so stiff around him... I wonder if he really doesn't know how to act around Annie?

Anthony smiling!?

It's surprising that he came back considering how hands-off he's being.

Poor Anthony. He thinks he's getting a visit from his friend, but he's really just there to spy on him.

I knew he had lost his hand but I didn't think......

It is SO WEIRD to see him acting like a human being.

29 Jul 2015 | 7:30 AM

Wow... So he CAN smile and generally act like a human being...

29 Jul 2015 | 7:31 AM

Hmm, something interesting going on here. Also, why are there never any comments until late in the day? That always confused me

29 Jul 2015 | 7:41 AM

Okay, the smile is almost creepier than anything else so far.

OMG HE'S SMILING, WHY IS HE DOING THAT?????

Hmm...I know a young lady who just might be very, very good at prosthetics. Too bad she wants to kill you at the moment, Tony...

He's... smiling... and laughing

29 Jul 2015 | 7:49 AM

Damn, okay I would be a little grumpy if I had a lost a hand. It doesn't excuse all of Tony's behavior, of course.

29 Jul 2015 | 7:53 AM

Man, Tony is a totally different person when it's just him and Donald.

29 Jul 2015 | 7:55 AM
Wow...

This is the page that really cements him as Antimony's father. The same smile, same joking manner around friends... Dang. I'm excited to see who Carver really is.

Awe jeez, isn't he all jovial when he doesn't have a little girl to beat up.

He may not be a surgeon, but damn if that isn't a surgically deployed smile.

HE CAN SMILE?! SINCE WHEN?!?!

Oh god he's a clone of my grandfather. There are people like Anthony in this world. They give their best to their friends and clubs and societies they get involved with, not their families. At my grandfather's funeral, the people who knew him best and mourned him most weren't his wife and children.

29 Jul 2015 | 8:10 AM

Oh. So he isn't a robot after all. Just introvertus maximus.

29 Jul 2015 | 8:11 AM

When did he become the talkative type?

29 Jul 2015 | 8:12 AM

I'm so confused...

Whoa, he smiled! I rather like this side of Tony, too bad sourpuss seems to be his default personality. =(

I still want him to slap himself in that weird angular face of his with the plastic hand.

Wha?!?! Tony's acting....human?

Interesting expletive. Wonder if anybody still knows where it came from. It still has shock value, anyway. Huh.

29 Jul 2015 | 8:29 AM

A smile! A laugh! What am I seeing? But I sure wonder how Annie feels about it, seeing his father so unusually expressive.

29 Jul 2015 | 8:36 AM

Did-did he just smile? And make another joke?

29 Jul 2015 | 8:37 AM

He just smiled. I thought his face was frozen in time. I think I need to rexamine my life now he's proved he's capable of facial expressions

29 Jul 2015 | 8:40 AM

There he is. That's the guy that ranted to Donny about not understanding romance, all those years ago. Good to see ya.

Sweet Jegus. He's smiling!

Now I see the family resemblance.

A few drinks, and Tony turns into a human. Well, a partially complete human, but still. His panel 1 face scares me the most, though.

It's so weird seeing him smile after everything that he's done to Annie >:/

29 Jul 2015 | 8:48 AM

I guess if Tony is 'ok' with your personality (I assume he's a massive OCD sufferer), he'll let down his walls. It makes a certain amount of sense based on how he acts. And if he was nicer, Kat could make him a robotic prosthesis.

29 Jul 2015 | 8:51 AM
Genthar

Yep, as I expected. Donny is the only one Tony feels comfortable talking to. It was shown back in Chapter 37. Tony puts up the blank wall when he's uncomfortable or unsure what to do.
