Yay: I'm back on schedule. Of course, this will change once I hit the colour comic in a couple of days.
This comic is West of Bathurst's
1,300th. That's...a lot of comics.
comic also marks the end of the entry period for Summer Contest #3,
though it doesn't mark the end of the contest itself. The contest
asked you to guess which character or characters would return to the
comic this week. With the reappearance of one of the Fates, we

as representing all three). However, it's quite possible that
other characters will turn up soon as well. I'm going to expand
the contest a bit; as long as the July 18th-related plot continues, any
reappearing character who turns up will be worth a point. Entries
are now closed, but all entries submitted thus far--including
SunshineRain's, which were posted a few hours ago--are eligible.
people who guessed "the Fates" are Preethi and Lumair. They have
been added to the list below. Again, fear not: this
particular contest is ongoing. Some of your guesses may still pan
