Well it would seem that Teddy and/or Chloe cast a spell on Naomi if this is how she remembers things.

It's interesting to see what epic mojo was worked since Abby is still a succbus, but apparently not being hunted by Gabrielle and Tandy.

Nice to see them back and I hope this isn't just a one off appearance.

Weird... A story told in passing that looks vastly more interesting than the actual story we got! Granted, it looks like it has some annoying elements (like the stupid stripper duo... that apparently live behind a fence somewhere? Also, now take to fantastical world's like fish to water, in contrast to their prior experience? Okay), but it has some imagination that was sorely lacking from the majority of the main "plot."
I'd say this was a set up for a Naomi spin-off, but I highly doubt that is actually the case; merely doing a showcase of how she took some lessons in badassery. But seriously, storming Hell almost singlehanded, whilst on an odyssey throughout different dimensions to try to rescue someone? Makes one wish she was the main character from the start...

To extrapolate: this update has some interesting ideas and a sense of imagination that looks intriguing at the very least.

I think that suggests that Naomi went back to hell to investigate.

So, are the strippers ging along to find Teddy? Or are they just having fun exploring the worlds?

I see no evidence of Chloe still being around... does that mean that she still has Teddy/i on a leash and is using their powers to fulfill her fantasy of the two of them in a cave somewhere?

Perhaps, but after the last time they stormed Hell went off so well I'm not sure Prudence would be willing to go back. Then again this is Prudence who can easily be tricked or bribed with sweets so I wouldn't rule this out.

I am a little curious where Ginger and Jordan got matching Lei slave girl outfits since they didn't start off on this adventure wearing those.

Aw. Naomi's adventures look like so much fun...
I wish we would've seen more of her squeezing information out of Slash-Stab.

As much of an anti-succubus guy I am, I really hope they are living out Chloe's fantasy from a few chapters back. Living in a cave in hell somewhere.

maybe we need a spinoff comic of prudence, Naomi, Jordon, and Ginger traveling the multiverse

I would really love that. Unfortunatley, it seems like maintaining webcomics is too difficult these days. Maybe we'll get some bonus stories in future Kickstarters. Fingers crossed. :ympray:

Naomi feels bad that Gabrielle is mentoring Abby, but I think the worse realization is Pandora is her legal guardian while Teddy and presumably Lance are away.

It’s relatively easy to think of good ideas for stories; the hard part is actually writing the damn things. That’s why professional writers get really, really pissed off with idiots who say “I’ve got a great idea for a story; if you write it, we could split the money fifty-fifty!”

So the stories mentioned in passing in this comic are always going to be better than the one we actually see.

I think that is why Naomi feels bad. But is glad Gabby is helping the kid out.

Or at least that's how I read the way she put things in that panel

True, but my point was that the main story should have been at least comparable to the level of imagination showcased here. It's fine that the abbreviated adventures look better, however, they shouldn't look so much better that it feels insulting how little we were given in the story proper.

- what's Naomi going on about how the students vaguely remember who Teddy was when everyone we've seen her talk to all seemed to remember him pretty fondly?

- who okayed the Artemis girls training Abby?

- Naomi knows full well how dangerous these parallel universes can be; but caves into bringing two inexperienced mortals with her because they said please?

- where's Pandora? (she was whisked away with them back to the mortal realm; but no insight on what she's up to?)
Please, don't come to me expecting me to fix your problems.
