Not gonna lie, I spent a looooong time fiddling with the last panel here. Just for once, I wanted to at least TRY and do a spaceship/hovercraft/whatever that didn't look embarrassingly sloppy. And I guess it turned out alright.

Anyway, there's some OOOOOLD continuity up at the top of the page. Let's see who can remember where that stuff came from?

And speaking of old, another new Voting Incentive on an old story idea!

Masagento Genocide Pies - For when you really have to kill the zombie vampires BEFORE they turn into zombie vampires.

Mudnoramen Big Surprise - just when you thought you'd beaten the Sunado Welbica Mindscrambler (or alternatively, the vending machine), it turns into a giant kill-bot.

I guess now we know why Disonar wasn't too concerned about trying to find this guy...
Nice looking hover platform/ship thing.

Incentive:
Who isn't trying to kill Ichabod?
Surprisingly, Stilez.

Also, I have now decided that people try to kill Ichabod all the time, but Sophia and Claire deal with them before he notices.

@ An answer to that question: The answer is: numerous people for numerous reasons.

Example 1: Past travelling companions, and family of past travelling companions, who are angry about stuff that Ichabod pulled them into.

Example 2: Past customers, who are upset at Ichabod for MANY different reasons (At least three of which are angry for him being able to be recognised by Stilez and yet still being alive)

Solution: The answer isn't actually given, instead we get a "Yeah, lots of people hate this guy" from his bosses when they show up and get rid of the large crowd of people who want to kill him. Also, they let Ichabod get into that situation so to take a dent out of the number of people who want to kill him (and not, significantly lower the number. He makes enemies easier than Avatar gets put in situations which would kill anyone else).

You know what'd be hilarious? If, um, barbie here (sorry forgot her name) was secretly an undercover cop.

I LOVE THE PURPLE!!! In this page. That is all.

Mini-Mimi: YAY! (I'm quite pleased with it myself)

SS: That's two, but technically there's one more on this page that I really shouldn't expect anyone to get without help. The "Z-56 Brown Dwarf" sign is SUPPOSED to be a copy of a billboard that appeared way back on Page 29. Unfortunately, even if people's memories DID go that far back, I, uh, kind of spaced out and forgot to finish drawing the sign. Whoops!

Everybody (including Power Comic who commented on the last page): Yeah, there's lots and LOTS of obvious of obvious reasons people would want to kill Ichabod. But that's the problem, they're obvious. Since the story was trying to take shape as a Whodunit mystery, the answer needed to be NOT obvious. I mean, who wants to spend time and energy reading a story with a "twist" they'd figured out months ago?

(Now, the idea of Stilez victims being angry at Ichabod, THAT'S an idea that wasn't on the table at the time. That's an interesting one. Probably too narratively complicated to use in that mystery story, but still an interesting idea.)

And yes, I do like to think that Ichabod does have lots of people who WANT to kill him, but The Guild is constantly taking care of them before he notices. If nothing else, it'd provide more chances to do stuff with Sophia and Claire!

Antonio: I can neither confirm nor deny anything about the possibility of undercover cops or other law enforcement plans without possibly giving away future plot twists. :D
