You can’t use Freya now! she snaps. I’m using her right now. We’re making up mean poetry songs.
“Call me Sybil. This part of the story is the part where I break out of my restraints again and rip off my EKG and my IVs.

You have two speech centers in your brain called Werner and Brocha. One turns thought into language, the other turns words in your head in to speech. They also work the other way turning speech into understanding into thought. If someone smashes an iron pipe in to this part of your brain, which is right next to your left ear, then those functions might get impaired, for months or more.”

Hey hey! I’m in this! Even if you didn’t like my comic very much you should pick up a copy of As You Were #3! It’s full of amazing people and I can’t wait to get my own grubby little hands on it.

All comics descend into role-playing eventually / I remember reading FoxTrot as a kid and seeing all the strips where Jason and Marcus play D&D, the weird little micron renderings of the d4 and d12 in that crazy hieroglyphics perspective of Bill Amend’s, and it looked so fun and I used to wish I could find pals to play this magical game with, somehow these emotions were relevant to the production of this comic / I wish I had the wherewithal to do things like “flashbacks” so as to reveal exactly how Mona first got into this game because I kind of have to believe she’s 100 percent indifferent to its actual rules
