    “…Are youactually playing ‘Entering the Capitol’ from the Hunger Games soundtrack? Little bit on the nose don’t you think?”

    • David Nuttall

      How about Hanging Tree instead? 🙂

  • Jack Clews

    This is one of those freaky rich people things, isn’t it?

    • Not necessarily.

      • Guilherme Carvalho

        But yeah, in this case it totally is.

  • Alexandra Lamberton

    Yeah there’s no way that isn’t a sex party

    • tygertyger

      Ain’t no party like a nymph and satyr party ’cause a nymph and satyr party don’t stop!

  • Is there any significance to the bunch of grapes over the door?

    *thinks*

    It’s dedicated to the Roman god of wine?

  • Olivier Faure

    “Wow wow wow, is this a costumed party and you forgot to tell me, or are these people actual Roman demigods?”

    Calling it now, Tony will be the party’s human sacrifice.

    • If it’s, as I suspect, a party dedicated to Bacchus and/or Liber then that’s unlikely. If it’s the former, he may be served raw meat (from a farm animal) and, if it’s the latter, he may have to add his seed to a vessel.*

      * Just looked up Roman God of Wine and got hits on Wikipedia.

      • AdamBombTV

        Man, the Gods knew how to party

      • Vegetalss4

        Some parties dedicated to Bacchus involved literally tearing people limp from limp, through that was mostly before the cult got taken by the elite, which happened pre-roman-ascension.

    • Scholiast

      Reminder: We’ve already established that there are Hindus in India who think that super-powered individuals are actual gods. It’s not a huge stretch to imagine that there may be something similar in the West, with people imagining themselves to be revived deities.

  • blackouthart

    Oh come now Tony, brush up on your mythology. Haven’t you ever heard of a Bacchanal?
    Or, you know. Could be a re-enactment of Dionysus and the Maenads.

    • Glotos

      Seriously, the grapes are a bit of a giveaway.

  • Dean

    OPEN COLLARS?! It’s like Sodom and Gomorrah in here!

    • Scott

      You know…I got to admire how much this image visually communicates “debauchery” without any real debauchery being depicted. There’s the one guy holding up the column who’s obviously had too much wine. There’s a woman sitting on a railing. And there’s what could just be an innocent game of adult tag.
      I guess what I’m saying is I love the way this comic is able to utilize visual cues and signals without having to rely on shock art.

      • Gotham

        Well there was also that time we got to see a broke necked dog’s corpse, so it’s not a perfect record

        • Ian Osmond

          Also some flamethrower-ed doctors and nurses, and a rather floppy corpse of the person responsible.

          But they all of them, the medical professionals, the dead murderer, and the dog, actually stick with you as emotional moments, kind of as if you avoid gratuitous shock, the actually necessary shock is more effective.

    • Weatherheight

      This parses so much better if you read it out loud and using a Queens, New York, accent….

  • I’m worried about the safety of that woman sitting on the railings.

    • Hiram

      I doubt she’s in more danger than anyone standing near the railing. The only thing that knee-high railing is good for is giving your shins a good bruising on the way down.

      • Zorae42

        Looks more like waist high to me. Given the way people are leaning on it

    • Weatherheight

      I dunno, it looks a little early in the party for… things… to get too slippery.
      Or lubricated.
      Or wet.
      Or moist.
      Or slimy…

      • I was thinking more on the lines of leaning forward (for example: to see something) and falling.

        • Happyroach

          Assuming she would even be bothered by a fall like that. There’s a good chance she’s a person who doesn’t need to be scared of heights.

  • She’s hinting that she wants to jump him?

    • Lostman

      Or rip him apart, it could go ether way.

      • Weatherheight

        Can’t wait for the coin toss, myself… 😀

      • Tsapki

        Or? These type of parties tend to be more ‘And’ then ‘Or’.

  • AdamBombTV

    It’s called an “Orgy” my man, haven’t you seen Eyes Wide Shut?

  • Kid Chaos

    “…I’m either overdressed or underdressed, I can’t tell which.” 😜

  • JohnTomato

    Women, and men, in comfortable shoes. What an innovation!

    • Ganurath

      The woman in the red dress with her back to a pillar on the left side is in heels.

    • Gotham

      We see a grand total of six shoes, two of which are high heels and all but one belonging to women, the last one remaining being a leather shoe.

      I guess my question is simply: What?

      • JohnTomato

        If I have to explain the humor I’ve failed. Sorry.

      • Johan

        Arggg I can’t find the sixth shoe, this is gonna haunt me all day XD

      • Tylikcat

        Molly pays more attention to women (and this is a formal party): news at eleven?

  • BMPDynamite

    Bacchanalia?

  • Thamuzz

    I’m fixating on the two people with Feral’s eyes.
    I’m skeptical of the idea that the conspiracy is made up of the adults who were affected by the storm.
    Gathering them together and organizing them before any were publicly revealed seems implausible.
    Yet you have people who are look like they’re powered. So you have powers that predate the storm, in an existing group.
    If it turns out that they actually are gods, or the basis of the ancient gods, I won’t be surprised.

    • Tim F

      Good spot! I saw that flame dress and came to the same conclusion. She doesn’t need a lighter to smoke. My guess, these are ‘ordinary’ people invited to mingle with gods.

  • sociotard

    Nice Dutch angle for the party. It really sells the atmosphere.

  • THAT kind.

    • Weatherheight

      Full marks for both brevity and what appears to be an avatar from El Goonish Shive.

  • Illuminati parties are lit

  • Tylikcat

    At one point Patrick was hiring out of work actors to be his window dressing. Is Tony such? If so, how inflexible can he be?

    • Urthman

      Exactly as inflexible as his role requires.

  • Guilherme Carvalho

    …the kind of party I never get invited to ._.

  • Dawn Smashington

    I’m fixated on the three in the upper right who seem to be in an argument

  • trev006

    “This is the conspiracy. Bitchin’ rad parties, erryday.”

    “And you kidnap biodynamics to get them here.”

    “It’s more of a pressing invite. Anyways, no one wants to leave.”

    • Weatherheight

      “You can check out any time you like,
      “But you can never leave…’

  • Weatherheight

    “Mr. Duvall? Welcome to Olympus.”

    (Or Aventine? Maybe?)

  • StClair

    “If you were actually the man you’re pretending to be, you’d already know.”

  • David B Huber

    The kind of party that would overwhelm a piggybacking telepath…

  • Ladon

    *reveals horns* “a hell kind of party” “I’m concerned but intrigued.”

  • Jovial Contrarian

    … You guys up for a toga party?

  • David Nuttall

    Welcome to the Hellfire Club. It is a great place for all the powerful people to meet, and the truly powerful to lead.

  • Gabrielle|#wayward 🏳️‍🌈

    I’m so in love with that one dress…. oooohhhh!

  • Johan

    Yeah, I’m with him. WTH ?
