"Oups I totally misjudged that guy", now in Moloch flavor.

Well, to be just, she would have had to judge potential to see this before.

Agatha/Violetta? Why not?

And I don't think Agatha will be too pleased with any experimenting on the dead, either.

I don't think Snaug will be happy to see Von Zinzer getting chummy with Sanaa.

Ya think?

Me, I think he would be happiest with Violetta, of the choices thus far, but I also think she has the longest odds.

Possibly not... they are in the territory of another spark and a powerful one at that. That changes the rules slightly.

To borrow a phrase from TV Tropes, Moloch seems to have Taken a Level in Badass. And, IIRC, Snaug's pretty much got her eye on him (and her claws in him) so if Sanaa suddenly changes her mind about him, there will be fireworks.

I love fireworks. I'll be looking for it.

I hadn't really heard a voice for Von Zinzer before this but at this point a mid-30s Jack Nicholson rings in my ears here.

I like how Mezzasalma's cup is a Mechanicsburg Crushing Museum souvenir mug. These bits of continuity just make this comic so wonderful. *happy sigh*

Snaug and Mittlemind are clearly a Spark/Minion perfect match. Makes me smile.

Yes to all the previous statements about Moloch, love to see the confidence in our Head Minion there. Judging from panel four, Snaug likes what she sees too.

Likes? Maybe. Surprised? Definitely!

In a kitchen, treated as canon fodder/stalking horse, yeah, he wasn't exactly in his element. Give him a broken machine, however, and, now he knows what to do and how to do it.

I can sympathize.

It's amazing what a mad castle can do to a man.

Posted by: Patchy (patchoblack )

To be fair, we have to remember that Moloch was originally a soldier. Sanaa's view of him is tainted by the fact that whenever she was around, Moloch's feelings for her would derail his train of thought and make him look like a bumbling fool. Hopefully he is now more self-assured and won't have that problem with Sanaa present.

Still, it does seem Moloch is coming into his own as a member of Team Agatha.

Posted by: Walter Matera (waltermatera )

Head Minion, indeed. One can almost see the chevrons growing on his sleeves. To misquote the Navy types, Von Zinzer is now The Boat (Castle) God. or as we used to say in the Army, "Yes, First Sergeant! Right away, First Sergeant!"

Van is technically the Supreme Minion, being Seneschal and all. But Moloch is the guy who Gets Stuff Done. That makes him just as/more important to day-to-day running of things. And having known Agatha since before she knew she was a Heterodyne, he's not afraid to talk back to her (or other Sparks, really) if he sees the need. That's a valuable skill there.

I know you folk are SOOPER busy, and I love what y'all are cranking out (I have the second novel on pre-order, etc.), but am wondering when we can see/order the 11th collection of the comic? I mean, we're nearly half way through Vol. 12, I am hoping to add Vol. 11 to my shelf ... as noted, especially with cons, and all the other stuff you're doing, I realize you have overflowing plates, but ... any kind of a status update?

Posted by: lightningnettle (lightningnettle )
Posted at: April 2nd, 2012 04:27 pm (UTC)

It's coming out in May I believe. You should be able to pre-order it at your favorite bookstore.

Sleepy fox

To be honest, Sanaa has every right to be shocked..
Consider if you will--in this strip Moloch has not just demonstrated that he's very much a leader type who can get the job done, he's also demonstrated that Sparks so independant/loony that they wouldn't even give Baron Wulfenbach respect (hence why they were in prison in the first place rather than in a position like Beetle) will give *him*, a non-Spark, respect. Now *that's* impressive.

I'm just entertained that Moloch seems to be collecting his little harem of admirers. Love Triangles, Not Just For Lead Characters! O:D

Ain't it wunnerful? Equal opportunity for the uncommon minion.
