    My Patrick’s back and there’s gonna be trouble… ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    • “Back”, orโ€ฆ was it him the entire time? du du duum

    Welp. The people who guess “Patrick” for the cause of Chapter Six are sure looking right right about now.

  • I feel as if i missed something…

      The Patriarchitecture.

    I do not have the capacity to grasp how hard it’s about to go down.

    So Molly and Brennan ARE having Patrick go full supervillian/antagonist, if the cover art is any indication.

    I’ve wondered where they were going ever since Chapter 5 gave us a Patrick who was utterly unlike the one we saw in Chapter 3. At that point I was wondering if there was something more going on with him, or if they’d decided to go with character derailment because they were uncomfortable with Allison’s civilian-life experiment getting its impetus from a male character.

    So this is the chapter where I get the information to decide whether this is a good story I want to keep reading, or whether the authors have chosen to destroy one of their best characters for shallow political reasons.

      Chapter 7: How Upset Does KatherineMW Need To Be

      I approve and agree with this statement.

      I really liked the Patrick of Chapter 3. Yes, you could view it as problematic that he was in some sense Alison’s impetus and mentor. On the other hand (1) the reach across the “hero-villain” divide was refreshing and well done, and (2) Patrick himself was awkward and challenged in some really interesting ways that complicated the power dynamic. (His hysteria over Loony Tunes remains one of the series’ best moments.) That relationship felt more like a friendship betwen two peers to me; Patrick was more knowledgeable, but still very naive in some ways.

      The Patrick of Chapter 5 was *not the same dude*. If there’s some in-story reason behind that, okay, great. If the authors decided to mess up Patrick for their own reasons… well, it might not make me stop reading, but I’d be pretty unhappy.

      …This does not look good for our heroes. ๐Ÿ‘ฟ

    He looks oddly tired there, has he always had large bags under his eyes?

    • He’s always had something of a sallow, hard-edged face with high cheekbones, and in the black and white strips he’s often been drawn with at least one eye bag or eye-line. I always thought that was meant to indicate a certain despondency of expression, introversion, stress, that sort of thing. But maybe he just never sleeps.

    Those are interesting building designs. They look European to me. Almost Russian, with the emphasis on crosses and minarets. However, I can’t think of any real city that has such a strongly vertical aesthetic. It’s like the people decided, “Ok, bell towers or nothing!”

  • I’ve heard of putting your shoes on the wrong feet, but Alison appears to have a left foot on her right leg…

  • reynard61

    Not to be to critical in my first comment, but are you aware that Alison’s left foot is on her right leg? (Big toes are usually on the inside of one’s feet.)
