The Mansion of E :: Part Three: The Widening Gyre
Last appearances, more or less, for those who have previously appeared: Skuy. Voog and Ploot. Chauncy. Snerd. Kronk. Clochard. Nevus, Agita and Mimsy. Shona. Comshaw, Niddle and Ig.The blindfolded Trog has appeared as well, but you can look for him yourself.
As noted yesterday, Comshaw, Niddle and Ig last appeared here. In the last panel they are seeing (from a distance) the results of this.
When he says "before", Comshaw is referring to this.
Yes, Comshaw previously used the word "skunky" to describe something smelly. I made a mistake. (Although Ig, much less Comshaw, has never seen an actual skunk..}
Note: That map in panel three is not necessarily to scale. I'll leave it for you to puzzle over, except to note that Mortimer did not encounter "his" Spyder up north in the Deep Woods. There are (or were) some of them Here as well. Also, The Weirdo didn't mention Skunk Sharks in his report because he had never heard about them...
Since people insist on noticing such things, yes, I tweaked the layout of the Clock's face since the last time you saw it.
Just as an historical aside, all three of the methods depicted in the second panel were used in real life before the development of mechanical clockworks.
Louch and the beetle box were both discussed back at the very beginning.
