Wolf, I say!
You Two Need To Be Separated!
If you haven’t heard, the comic is moving to a Monday-Wednesday-Friday schedule. No, I don’t have extra time and no, I’m not feeling generous, I simply have to get this storyline finished by Thanksgiving(in the U.S.) and there’s no way that’s happening with a twice-a-week schedule. Main reason would be that I don’t update on Thanksgiving(few people post or read comics that day), and this storyline can’t get interrupted by that. I also can’t have it drift into December. I was worried that it would have to be 5-a-week, but thankfully it played out to 11 more comics(including this one) when I scripted it out yesterday.

…which leads me to that number you see at the top of the comic. This storyline was plotted out back in April, and probably started when Kenny graduated(a start of a new storyline in anybody’s life). 10 comics remain in this storyline now. The next comic will have a 9. When the number reaches zero on November 23rd, something big will happen. In fact, a few big things will happen. Surprises will occur between now and then and characters’ lives will be changed. That is all I will say about the next 10 comics.

Oh, and remember when I posted thumbnails of the remaining 8 comics for this month and I cut off the last panel of today's comic? That huge word was the reason. Too attention-getting for the thumbnail, and at the time I really wasn't sure if it would stay like that. Now that I've loosely scripted all of November as well, I know that this is indeed what happens. Death and Kenny, go see what those characters are up to, will ya?

interesting setup so far, I so expected Death to wipe out that wolf that was going after Kenny, I didn't however expect that whole bit with turning the money into a weapon in the killing of the wolf.  Personally i so should have expected it knowing Death and her ability to turn anything into a weapon.  I so wonder where she learned to do that?  In either case that could be an interesting comic idea for later on, that and how she got the robotic arm...

Heheh, I keep trying to fit in her arm's origin story, but the plot just never goes there. I have some ideas, most likely something boring, but nothing's set in stone until the plot opens up a perfect spot for one of those ideas.
Her weapon-making skills come partially from watching too many kung-fu films, and mostly an overall natural skill/interest in looking past the intended purpose of things. I'll be exploring the other facets of that talent starting in January.

Actually you have a good setup here for a flashback one panel of some sort dealing with losing the arm but no actual thing showing how it happened in this area, maybe something that can be used later on as a story of her talking with Kenny before the baby is born about what ever happened which eventually led to the loss of her arm.  Just maybe something which makes her have a moment flashback of her missing the arm, but no real depth as to how it happened, a teaser if you will.  Being evil, as I am, I always come up with such things since I am of course, well, an evil planner as it were.  A good moments flashback can say volumes without ever actually saying anything at all but wetting the appetite for the later story where you decide to reveal all in a big way which can turn out even funnier the more inane the actual incident happens to really be.  In a story I once wrote I played the flashback routine four to five times before eventually releasing the actual reason the character had a fake leg and why it was fake.  Those I let read the story broke up laughing so hard when the moment of reveal came up that half of them ended up having to relieve themselves in the restroom because they were laughing so hard.  A few actually didn't manage to make it because they were laughing so hard.  Then again its all a matter of timing and each person comes up with their own way to release it in a special manner that really reveals their own style.  Maybe later on as you come closer to the reveal she could see something which or be involved with something that creates that flashback moment without actually showing what really happened but opens things up for that enviously demented moment of the utter mundane you have planned for the true story of utter dementia.

I had considered using Kenny's thoughts of breaking up with her as a spot for a story. (The following idea has not been made canon...) Basically, he would find out that she was born without an arm and he would be concerned that their child would inherit that birth defect. That idea could have been either one of the reasons for breaking up, or a concern after he finds out about the pregnancy. However, I decided that it being one of the reasons for the breakup would make him look like a jerk, and either way it wouldn't change the story if it was in there or not, so I left it out of the plot. It felt like a tangent. So it's still up in the air how she wound up without a left arm. After this comic went up, I recalled an upcoming story arc that one of my ideas could fit into where she lost her arm. I also came up with a few other ways she could have lost her arm. At the moment, the exciting story where she lost it violently is in the #1 spot and has a worthy spot in the story, but it's also kinda cliche, and nothing will be set in stone until it's actually explained in the comic.

The violent story plot idea about the arm loss doesn't really sound too bad actually.  It would also explain why she seems to always expect trouble every moment.  She seems poised and ready for something, anything actually of a bad nature that could or will happen even when she is in a safe environment.  Having been the survivor of a bad accident and having friends who survived anything from being raped to being stalked and attacked in a few cases I can say that such things actually leave their mark behind in such a manner.  Once that trigger event has happened your always prepared and looking for that next instant unless of course your the type which decides to withdraw from the world in general and go into a life of solitude because you can't handle confronting the world which betrayed you and decide to simply pull away and hide from it.  Death seems more like the survivor who would fight back with a vengeance to me so that would so fit her personality.

Now that you mention it, living on an island as the only non-monkey due to your mother's adultery with a lemming can make you the target of a lot of bullying.

exactly what I was thinking actually.  She could have even decided to got nutcase on the person after getting her arm and left the island to say keep from being a target of revenge for taking out or killing the bully that took it later on.  She of course may have been cleared of the killing as a matter of self defense...  Say that's an idea she lost her arm, killed the one who took it while still with only one arm.  Then got the replacement arm before leaving the island to keep from being attacked by the friends of her now dead attacker.  It would also explain why she hasn't been back home for such a long time and also why she was uncomfortable with going home alone.  I keep a careful track on stories I like and sometimes I can even predict or anticipate what is going to happen almost exactly how it is going to go.  I just consider it being really good at guessing.  I'm rarely wrong, but I have been only a few times.  Not often but every once in a while.  Usually though I'm pretty accurate and as I see it exceedingly lucky at guessing or just figuring things out.

Well, Death isn't really that into vengeance, she's more into going overboard with self-defense. Death and her mom left Ook Island because of the extermination, although they didn't plan on returning. The reason for not returning was a mix of getting away from the intolerance and the fact that Death would find out that the cats were all dead. She loves animals, unless her self-defense is called for.
And when she got the arm... I'm still working on that. Any time between birth and when Kenny met her. Right now my story on that is that prosthetics are simply better 118 years in the future and they either got the deluxe model or it was tweaked later.

That's what I actually meant later on, I changed ideas in mid track.  I was thinking she lost the arm when being attacked, and went overboard in defending herself but the one she killed had a lot of friends.  Similar to the stuff with the guy who put the seeker robot on Kenny before he accidentally killed himself.  That was in the earlier moments of the series right?  Only in this case unlike Kenny, Death does kill the monkey attacking her but loses her arm in the process.  As to the prosthetic I'd agree totally with the idea that their better in the future, but knowing Death, wouldn't she tweak it as it seems to be in her skill set?

By the way, I'm wondering what the heck that honking is, most likely just like anyone else reading it at the moment.

*points at the orange ship in the background*
Admittedly, it doesn't look unmistakably like a ship and could be taken as a part of the island, so I do understand the confusion. I doubt that even adding windows would make it look like one.
