A totally misguided (if understandable) sense of self-preservation, mind you. Far too much and too confused an imagination, that boy.

Though on the other hand, it does get us Dangerous-Manga-Style Yuki and Sonya. Who, hell's teeth, are hot. I'm especially a sucker for that swirly-faux-Victorian-military look that Sonya is rocking. Yuki's puffed sleeves and spiked bracelets are a nice touch, too. I suspect that someone will now pop up and say exactly which manga these designs are invoking.

Meanwhile, I'm kind of in two minds about the last couple of strips. On the one hand, all these confusions and imagine spots are slowing the actual plot down to a crawl. On the other hand, they're working better as jokes than the comic has for a while.

This may be a bit random, and very nerdy on my part, but does anyone here remember the 90's X-Men cartoon? More specifically, The Dark Phoenix Saga during that show. There's a part where Empress Lilandra yells out "The Phoenix must be destroyed!" They played that clip constantly for all the show ads at the time, and I heard it so many times its just stuck in my brain. Seeing this panel has altered it now to "The Penis must be destroyed!" Fantastic. :))

Again, I'm a huge nerd.

Yuki is dressed as Chun Li and Sonya is Rose, both from the Streetfighter videogame series.

The spikes on the bracelets are specific to this imagining of Yuki, though.

Edit: Oh, wait, I guess I just don't know Chun Li that well. Derp.

Gary may have an over reactive imagination, but in this case he might be right.

I think the word you're looking for is self-preservation.

Good save, Gary. That's pretty high up on the bad idea list.

It's no shock that Gary has a hyperactive nerdy imagination. All the sex-in-cosplay is only reinforcing it. Although, I think that Chun Li would be amazing sexy cosplay for Yuki and Gary's benefit if she doesn't combo his ass into the hospital.

It is a good idea to call mutual acquaintances too, instead of just driving the streets on Montreal. Maybe PM her on FB or some such. If she was going to work that morning, maybe Jung will know if she just quit or asked for a couple days, or some such.

Although I 110% agree that Didi & Gary need to discuss the events of last night. I am torn as to which is more important. If the two of them are going to be of one mind - either as partners or as just friends - it needs to be agreed upon before locating Zii, letting her know, and figuring out what happens next then.

Why doesn't he just call or text Zii? he has got to have her number

Because Zii won't respond and may feel even more hurt than she is now.
