@Varanus: Yeah, that's why I only liked those 3, but not the other 2 EC short stories. Hence, 3 out of 5.

Has anyone on the Pixie Trix team actually said this would be the last comic? Seems to me the previous EC story ended with a "To Be Continued," suggesting that Blair and Tia at any rate will be back, presumably so he can figure out how to restore her to full demonic voluptuosness.

Giz has said all pixie trix comic will end by 2019. And with no more KS funded strips, doubtful they'll do more of these

At first I was disappointed because this all seemed like a dream, but considering that supernatural things are afoot here I can rationalize.

First, it seemed too convenient that Nina was wearing a swimsuit underneath, but she's not as naive as she was when this strip started. Maybe she knew Brooke's party would be a bust and was just preparing for the inevitable. As for Ace I'm beginning to think everyone at school knows about his transformation and just hasn't told him. As such I can see Grace asking Melissa if she could conjure up a swimsuit that changes with the wearer's gender. Seeing as how she turned what Brooke was wearing into a bikini that doesn't seem out of the realm of possibilities.

I must commend Elissa. That spite was worthy of Girls with Slingshot's Candy. I'm a little surprised that Brooke seems to have the upper hand in this fight, but she might've taken Elissa by surprise. Even Ash had problems sparring with her.

I'm curious as to why Sandi and Tiffany are there. It would make a great story, but as vampire hunter D said there isn't any kickstarter funding so it seems that we'll never know why they are crashing this party.

who the hell invited Faith?!
Good question. Assuming it's really her and Sandi, how would they even know where CH is? :-\

The last I recall, neither of them knew about it, unless Faith was privy to those documents that Jacqui found. And I doubt Tiffany would've told her, considering what nearly happened the last time Faith and Layla met each other.

That’s not Faith it’s Tiffany.

@brasca: Faith is the girl in the red shirt. She's standing right next to Nina, directly underneath Mel in the final panel.

Sandi and Tiffany, but no Callista!?
That too, is heresy of the utmost kind.

She is indeed a wonderful artist who could doubtless turn her hand to anything, but from what I've seen, I don't get the feeling that she's very interested in depicting some of those bits in all their wrinkly Lovecraftian glory.

I see. Bad choice, then, to do that Blair/Tina story which ends on a cliffhanger.

Guess we're never going to learn Blair's origin either, then. Oh well.

Also, if Dave and Fernando wanted to do a send-off, it might've been better to do a separate "cast portrait" as a sixth, final installment as, for example, T and Jason did with Fans. That would've allowed Fernando to include more EC/MC characters (as a couple of people have said they'd have liked), and also been less disruptive to the conclusion of this story. In terms of panel composition, Brooke attacking Melissa should really be in the foreground.

I don’t see a tag so she’s probably a random student.

@brasca: Sandi isn't tagged either, but I'm pretty sure you recognize that it's her.

I thought I saw Sandi tagged earlier, but it appears that it disappeared.

I still think she’s a random student. She doesn’t have any highlights in her hair and if Faith crashes a party she does it in style.

Actually, she does have highlights in her hair - the contrast between the colors just aren't that apparent; but, they are there. So, yes - it's Faith.

Totally agree - the proportions/perspectives just doesn't make any sense.

Also, Faith, Nina, Jacqui and...Dio?...missing their lower bodies is also a little unsettling (no - I'm not buying that they're all behind a weirdly shaped bush - why would a bush that big be in the middle of a gathered crowd, anyway?)
Please, don't come to me expecting me to fix your problems.

Hey wait, did Jacqui hook up with Ace/Acina at the end there?!

Judging from the tags, that's Dio
