Comics - The Batman

That's not Galactus - although it may be his colours on Big Barda's faceframe.

P.S. I was told the BIG pauldrons are Warhammer-ish.

Are Zeetha's armor in the fifth panel and Agatha's comment a nod to Mass Effect, in which you can play Commander Shepard as either male or female?

I don't think that's Galactus. I think that's Evilynne from He-Man. o.O

now that I've looked more closely, it's not Galactus, or Evil-lyn. maybe its one of Marvels asgardians.

WH40K on panel 4... A bit of it)

Chaos Marines! And IIRC, Kaja plays 40k...I think she plays Orks....(which are awesome, according to my girlfriend. I play Space Marines with Trilobite insignia, personally)

Mimmoth armor!

Posted by: midnightchemist (midnightchemist)

Well, at least I was partly right. Zeetha's very first offering was a battle bikini... and poor Agatha looks mortified by the idea. However, it looks like she will be wearing something practical after all.

So,rule of funny AND moment of awesome (hopefully Friday) all at once.

Also, notice the mimmoth armor in the forth panel. Some Old Heterodyne either liked war gaming, or once fought off an army of mice people.

Posted by: geekhyena (geekhyena)
Posted at: April 25th, 2012 03:19 pm (UTC)

According to book 2, the Heterodynes were indirectly responsible for Mimmoths, so it could be a relic from the days when Fulano Heterodyne decided to send them into battle as saboteurs or something...

Ceiling Lucrezia IS WATCHING YOU

...right, we need more sparky powered armor in here!

Those gigantic pauldrons could conceivably also be a shoutout to Warhammer 40K's Space Marines, but they could also just be really clunky heavy armor.

And I just realized that with the view of her hair cut off, Agatha makes for a cute guy.

Zeetha's helmet in the sixth panel -- a shoutout to ClawHammer 40K?

Ahem, catalog of Shout Outs as follows.
Panel 3: Xena, Warrior Princess “Does this make my chest look big?”
Panel 4: Warhammer 40K, looks more like Chaos Marine armor than anything.
Panel 5 is Samus from Metroid and Evil Lyn from HeMan and the Masters of The Universe, which might make the armor in Panel 2 from Teela.
And the armor that Agatha is wearing is the armor of Godric Gryphondor, one of the founders of Hogwarts.

Panel 3, background - Sontaran armor, just above the Mimmoth armor. And Agatha's armor in 5 looks more like Galactus - headdress is all wrong for Evil Lyn.

My son is *so* going to lose it when he sees panel 5...

Zeetha has dimples!!! How long until the experiments are old enough for Phil and Kaja to return to XXXenophile? :-)

The helmet between the two of them in panel 2 reminds me of something, perhaps from Buck Godot? And I like the trilobite on the peen of the hammer-head helm in panel 6.

Fun page.

"Does this make my chest look too big?"

"No."

"Drat!"

I think that tells us something about Zeetha's priorities...

Is there any significance to the "SRØNK" on the side of the building in the first panel?

Posted by: The Sidhekin (sidhekin)
Posted at: April 25th, 2012 04:24 pm (UTC)

I think it's «SPØNK», which looks and sounds like a Norskie's "spunk".

If there's any significance, I imagine Othar will let us know ...

Okay, first, in panel 3 in the clear display tube, while it might be a simple deep-sea diving outfit, I think it may be a shout-out to the Big Daddy from the BioShock series.

Here we get to see the differences in the fashion sense of Zeetha and Agatha. Agatha, as one would expect, likes outfits that maintain her modesty while making her look like a force to be reckoned with. Zeetha, on the other hand, while not passing on some that are less revealing, tends to lean toward those that help showcase her physical assets. I believe most of the males here (and some of the females as well) appreciate that! =^_^=

Shout-outs bedamned. Three cheers for the fan service! It's about time Agatha spent some time in her skivvies. And I second the anticipation for more Xxxenophile, especially involving our protagonists. Bring on the Skifanderian High Holy Days (cha, cha, cha!)

Hm. Given the fashion show, does that mean Tarvek is about to be re-appeared?

Exposition, Victorian underwear worn by buxom women, and loads of shout-outs. The Foglios have outdone themselves.

Having read a fair bit of Pratchett of late, I now see Wee Mad Arthur or Buggy Swires riding a mimmoth in that armor.

Posted by: Walter Matera (waltermatera)
Posted at: April 26th, 2012 11:57 pm (UTC)

Not Buggy, he's an aeronaught but Wee Mad Arthur would find it just the ticket for patrolling Ankh-Morpork on the night shift. Come to think of it, Rob Anybody might want one, as well.
