GND194 - Club Can't Even Handle This by Pika-la-Cynique GND194 - Club Can't Even Handle This by Pika-la-Cynique
Dear Lizzie. It's not your fault your writers were pretty ham-fisted with the GRRL power. Or that they can't even agree, iirc some interviews when the last film was released, whether that final scene was intended to mean that after 10 years chaste waiting by the seaside you got your man back for good or if that was just his shore leave. ..


And well done Chris - double standards are hilarious when you're bashing guys for being obnoxious horndogs but bringing Marsha along with you to terrify the barman. (Who may well be a 'Cocktail'-era Tom Cruise character because why not.)

Yes, that is a spy-crystal. Jareth will lengthily debate with himself whether the sight of Nanny Ogg in a Dwarfette leather minskirt and studded boob tube letting it all out to "Lets Talk About Sex, Baby"* was worth the vision of Sarah in hotpants groovin' to Bowie.
Jareth will also most charitably proffer the sights caught within the spy crystal to Erik, should he wish to appreciate Christine's skills on the dance floor. Less charitable, perhaps, was his making this offer while Blind Mag was sitting right beside them.



(* The girls have found a club that, besides playing the modern standards for clubbing funtimes, also favours a retro 80s-90s playlist. Sarah is a big fan.)(and is also intimately convinced that you need big hair to party properly. It's an 80s thing....)

I'd like to point out that Lizzie & Will are soulmates & being chaste for 10 years is a hell of a lot better than your lover being dead.

I remember Lizzie mentioning that htey should meet at her house for a sleep over, that could be a good time to meet him. How old would he be? If Lizzie's still i class then wouldn't he be an infant with her being 23 in the last movie?

I wish there were clubs like this. I went to a dance at a convention last weekend, and all I could think of was how much I wanted 80s and 90s music to play (then again, I would have been happy with any music that wasn't dubstep by that point). Sadly, I was denied. They wouldn't even play "The Time Warp!" No, I disagree! 
Also, Christine's speech about girls just wanting to dance without hooking up was EXACTLY what was going through my head. But while we had no Nanny Ogg to scare off the dudebros, we did have a large, angry pirate and the Batman, so we had almost as much protection.

I read that at least three times as "psychopath husband", and was wondering who on earth Christine could be talking to... (I can never manage to recognise Elizabeth on her occasional appearances in this strip...)

So does she have a son in this version of continuity, then?  (The good Mrs Turner, obviously, not Christine :p)


And however much Erik might or might not appreciate Christine's dancing/costume... can he handle her musical taste? Thinking back to the 'housework in her underwear' episode...

I'm really not sure about our Pirate Queen. Does a 20 second stinger after the credits have real canon sticking power...? I'm still not quite decided about her family status.

I rather think that THIS is the kind of independent, free-spirited type of behavior that Raoul was first expecting from Christine when he "agreed" for her to live on her own for however-long-that-was-supposed-to-be. Going on during girls' nights, but with appropriate precautions. Except... urmmmm... not QUITE like this. :D

And you KNOW that Jareth would claim that he's watching at a distance, and therefore respecting Sarah's privacy and space and yada yada yada. After all, if that club plays retro 80s-90s stuff, our own glittery, poofy-haired, tight-pants Goblin King would fit right in!

Little goblin in a dress! lol Poor Liz. I assume that ending scene was just on shore leave, and was content to leave it at that. Syrena and Phillip are my couple fixation for that franchise.
Poor Magdalene too.

I love this series and the work you've done so far, as well as your art style! (Not to mention all the cameos and crossovers that appear. Supernatural and GO? Susan and other Discworldians? As a certain Doctor ma say, "Has someone been peeking at my Christmas list?!")

Funny enough, i was wondering if you'd do anything with Return to Labyrinth, seeing how much you snipe and snark at the PotO sequel.
