I'm looking at that last panel and the title "Love Among the Ruins' comes to mind.

Sanaa does fill out an orange prison jumpsuit rather nicely, doesn't she?

whew!

Snaug strutting... check!
Sub-minions... subbing... check!
Sanaa change of heart... check!

More than one person called these, I think, but they are certainly coming about!

(One little question. "Let's fix at this stupid thing." Should it be "Let's fix this stupid thing." or "Let's look at this stupid thing."? "Fix at" seems an awkward choice of words.

let's apply fixes at (or over ?) that thiong ?
Let's fix our attention at that thing (or again better would be "over" ? )

PS. It seems von Zinzer would have to prove Sanaa that she really cannot keep him there, in both romantic and kidnapping senses of the word.
but no matter how funny (and it truly was funny) it might look, i can't ignore the feeling, that they would make a very bad improper pairing.

It is better to know your fate from start, than having high hopes and being disillusioned later :-)

Given Wulfenbachs fleet dominating the skies

...did he really hoped to catch some regular air bus ?

Guess here would not be that suitable "1st airship" until von Zinzer would steal it and drive to the city.
Or until some baron's airship would land to capture von Zinzer, which is even less plausible, seeing how playful Jaegenerals readily become in any airship vicinity.

Perhaps he was speaking metaphorically -- to say he's not sticking around for long.

But frankly, it seems he has got his role model now: Alfred P. Doolittle

I wonder, how does he like that unexpected heritage he suddenly got.

Snaug quickly steps in and has Sanna moveing sandpiles with tweezers, while Sanna does that Snaug "gets busy" bearing Von Zinzer 9 or 12 Children.

Von Zinzer reminds me of a Chief Petty Officer who worked for me in the Navy. Very good at his job, but constantly threatening to retire. I suspect they had to have a platoon of Marines drag him out of the sub when he hit 30 years.

Back when I was the Chief Intel NCO for three states I had a whole bunch of E-8's around who came nose first to their alloted 29 years and almost had to be thrown out bodily. Yeah, Von Zinzer's going to complain all the way through the entire story about how much he wants out . . . right up until Agatha assigns him a suite of rooms in Der K (with a view) where he can keep all three of his ladies . . . in separate quarters, of course, to avoid bloodshed.

Kaja, sympathies and I hope your wrists feel better soon. Perhaps someone can take your dictation for a while? Absolute rest can help fairly quickly sometimes.

I wonder what the gizmo in panel five is for?

And von Zinzer finds a reason to stay in the last panel. :)

Look at her eyes. Either she's just back from the Berkeley 'Shroomfest, or she's really interested now.

Re: Moloch, the chief minion

Plus, WOG is that those time windows with Moloch, Agatha and Gil are much later in the story. He's sticking around, but Sanaa is giving him a good reason to do so for now.

That is a hot looking Sanaa.

Does anyone look at those Public Works guys and say,
Are We Not Men, We Are Devo!

But yeah, I have had a brain crash like that in the last frame. Poor Von Zinzer, his fate is sealed.

So, just like his Spark, his love life is WAY too complicated.

"Come with me, please, and I'll pump you thoroughly in the debriefing room!"

Seriously, if Snaug gets wind of this, I can sort of hear the opening notes of Julie Brown's song Girl Fight Tonight in the background:

"Girl fight tonight!
Your lips are gonna kiss the street!
Girl fight tonight!
Blood and mascara will meet!"

"Why yes! Something critical...give me a moment..."

As above, so below. I think not only the Heterodyne has a seraglio. There must be ample quarters in the Chief Minion's quarters.

Moloch, *think this through*. Black fire and slag, you're now the equivalent of sergeant-major of the Mechanicsburg minions. Everyone in Mechanicsburg is a minion. Do the math!

Moloch is no mere spark, he is a CHIEF MINION. Although just as capable as any man of being momentarily distracted by a pretty face or form-fitting jumpsuit, as soon as his 'drama-detection' circuits go off, the emergency hormone-dampers will flood his system and a cooler head will prevail. ("I have to get out of here, they are _all_ going to try and kill me! Lady Heterodyne, may I be excused?")
