    Looks like this level, which started way back on Sept 15, 2015 (over four years ago!), is finally starting to wrap up. All that's left is the denouement and the critical missives.

    For anyone who's curious, here is the called shot heard around the world.

    For those curious:

    Yes, the baseball episode is finally over. We've moved on to a new one, albeit one that assumes you read the previous episode, so... buckle up and catch up.

    Well, that's probably not good.
    Rusty's vanished, Maddie's in trouble and someone's very likely a statue.
    Y.T.'s our only hope...
    Oh well, it was nice while it lasted.

    But the HoH cameo was great.
    Even if it took a moment to click.
    The dwarf looked familiar.

    Been following this comic for a while now, including the whole of the previous arc and this one. I'm enjoying the story.

    Last arc I got the sportsball puns and plot relevant aspects if not all the references. I don't like or follow sports, but I feel like sportsball x dangerous hijinks has been done before, so I got it. And the story was great.

    But this arc ... I kind of vaguely know the lyrics of Hotel California and if I didn't, the comments sections both here and there have helpfully written them out a few times for those not following along. And today's comic I thought was stretching it. I actually read the comic, looked at the comments, and then had to go back and realise that something was revealed that hadn't been previously. I don't know why I wasn't shocked, but hey, this comic has Rusty in it already, right? And the possible reference to the song was ... just a reference. Not a joke, not plot-relevant, not even true, and the sarcasm didn't mean anything. Unless there's another reference I'm not getting?

    But I still like the story itself, and the plot is moving along, so I guess I'll have to treat the references as an added bonus. Or not.

    BTW TiffanyY.T.'s inclusion in this adventure was by vote, right? I wonder if the author had other ideas in mind if she hadn't made it in?

    Looking for Y.T's name I noted that Myrmarch Antoinette has made it onto the Cast Page (under Other). Myrmarch Antropas is listed under Enemies, and I don't remember her. But she also wears her collar up to her eyes. So I guess that's a thing.

    Antoinette is the 'nice' one greeting at the door (no gems embedded in her abdomen)

    Antropas is the one with the artifact (gems in the abdomen)

    And the collar is ... well, just LOOK at that last panel. It's to avoid scaring the mammals if their mandibles start to show...

    Ahh, I hadn't realised they were different Myrmarchs. I did an archive binge right up to the baseball chapter looking for her too!

    I wasn't bothered by the mandibles, but maybe that's just me. Maybe the fact that Rusty also has (cute) mandibles?

    Well, Rusty's mandibles are more or less harmless. After all, rust monster. He's only a threat to folks attached to metals in their possession.

    Hers are more ... pointy. And the fact that she's threatening snake tartare says 'meat's back on the menu, boys'.

    As sweet as Maddie's enthusiasm is, she looks kinda a little bit crazy here.

    I was wondering why Rusty would ask the big bodyguard types for help. I mean, despite his celebrity status, they're both the Matriarch's bodyguards. Why would they help Rusty?

    Then I remembered they got fired for letting Yuan-Tiffany escape. Which explains the 'hobo sticks' over their shoulders.

    I wonder if they'll get names?

    And notice that he is also asking for help from the little bellhop standing next to the newly unemployed tough guys...and the bellhop, in turn, is clutching a genuine Rusty lunchbox. One of his fans!

    The ant wants Rusty to sign the lunchbox.

    Now is this part of a rescue attempt, or just to increase the value of the collectible?

    Gotta appreciate that Rusty has spent the majority of this being-captured thing looking more casually annoyed than worried. It's only fair, though - Mimic and Cube were the damsels in distress the last time somebody got captured, now it's his turn.
