While last week's "it's a convention, but with laser guns!" vibe was on purpose, it also came across as a little too... nice. Like, just a bunch of harmless geeks who happen to be interested in dangerous weapons. So here's a quick reminder that, no, most of these crooks really are horrible scumbags.

So... yeah, this page is super late again. I'm afraid the reason is kind of stupid: I usually do the Voting Incentive before the main comic, because it usually takes a lot less time to finish those. BUT NOT THIS TIME. Nope, I somehow failed to consider that the biggest, longest, most elaborate Voting Incentive we've ever had just MIGHT take longer than usual to finish, and that threw everything off.

BUT HERE IT IS! THE LONG AWAITED VOTING INCENTIVE! As promised, this one gives you all the details about Layla's Mom, their relationship, and what about the early pages is being retconed. So, seriously, you really need to go vote and read it.

...oh, and sorry if your browser freaks out over the size of the image. TWC only lets you have one Incentive image at a time, and I literally couldn't scale this one down and farther without making the text illegible.

EDIT: aaaaaand crap. Photobucket seems to have scaled it down too small anyway. Hang on, I'll see if I can fix it...

EDIT EDIT: GRUMBLEGRUMBLEGRUMBLE Okay, the only way I could get this to work was by putting the incentive on a different host that I'm not used to. HOPEFULLY, it'll be visible to everyone no problem, but let me know if it's not showing up for you.

You may or may not be interested in knowing that your second "vote" link has quote marks in the href, which makes it now work. Which makes me wonder how such a thing may have happened. Story time?

Shockingly enough, it seems my browser's spellcheck does not, in fact, check to make sure my html is written out properly! :)

I like how Disonar hesitates in calling them people.
Maybe he's a person after all :P

Concerning finding a specific person here... Well, at least everyone isn't in cosplay?

Concerning blue guys wanting to buy Layla:
Read her shirt. (She's way out of your price range guys)
Well, at least whats-her-name should be less annoyed at people wanting Layla more than her this time round.


Incentive:
I found it amusing, but I feel like I really shouldn't have.
The description of events makes sense.


Also:
The more I look at the previous page not having a title, the more it looks out of place.

You know, I actually hadn't thought of this being yet another example of people picking Layla over Astrid... but you're right! It totally is!

Also, I agree. The forgotten page title bugs me too. Unfortunately, fixing that would have broken all the "new page!" links I spread all over the twitters & tumblrs of the world, since the title is actually included in the address.

For what it's worth, I find titleless and/or numberless urls better. Numbers give you predictability, while titles give you memorability. Either is fine, but having both is getting the worst of both worlds.

Also I just remembered I had a comment on the incentive: You may want to edit the comments on the pages where Layla's mom first showed up to inform new readers of the retcons. Either the wall of text or a link to the image, when and if you archive it (though Layla's dad's face is a spoiler for the Deadly Station of Deadly Doom, I guess).

Yeah, I was gonna put some "No Longer Canon" warnings on those pages when I finally get the "fixed" comics drawn, but I guess I should go ahead and do it sooner than later.

Oh! If you're going to actually replace pages in the list, please do come tell us to go read the new ones, would you?
