Pertinent questions right out of the box.
Sheela 28th Apr 2017, 2:01 AM edit delete reply

Not only does she get to ask questions, but the building is also not on fire!
Matt Knab 28th Apr 2017, 6:25 AM edit delete reply

Thank goodness for that! For awhile it seemed everywhere we looked, it was on fire! XD

Acantha! You're OK!
*Happy Dance*
Where is Noctis?
guest1 28th Apr 2017, 12:27 AM edit delete reply
by the door.. as a guard thats where i would be..
Just_IDD 28th Apr 2017, 9:21 AM edit delete reply
I'm really surprised that noctis hasn't come in yet actually. Their level of speaking should be completely audible to her through the door.
guest1 28th Apr 2017, 12:35 AM edit delete reply
also look in panel 3 behind Lynn's head,, Noctis is reflected in glass/poster.
megados 28th Apr 2017, 12:40 AM edit delete reply
Oh yes, you are right! Good eye! Leave it to @Centcomm!
Dragonrider 28th Apr 2017, 12:05 AM edit delete reply

Welcome to your home away from home. Boy do we gots some catching up to do. No guess you can't blame her for asking she hasn't seen Noctis yet and might not recognize her in sweats, question where's Ada? Getting reamed by the "Almighty" Cent and will we get to see the showdown between Cent and Dolly?
Between Dolly, Ada, TeeDee,Lynn and Calliope wonder how many circuits and Dolls Cent looses in the near future.

And she is awake!! I know Lynn will make her feel very welcome in New Troy.
megados 28th Apr 2017, 8:06 AM edit delete reply
Lynn will make her feel welcome for sure! They will most likely be inseparable!

"Guess what. Acantha. Since that roach of a brother of yours got himself caramelized by Kali, you're the new ruler of Nova Roma.
(pause) Would you like a cup of orange juice?"
Gilrandir 28th Apr 2017, 12:50 AM edit delete reply
The look of pain on Acantha's face in panel 4 is very nicely rendered (assuming that was what was intended ^_^); however, what is that device hovering over her right hand intended to be?

Also, as a minor nit, was the plushie moved between panel 1 and panel 2? Because, in panel 2 it looks like it is resting naturally on the pillow beside Acantha, but in panel 1 it kind of looks (to me) like it is levitating.
Sheela 28th Apr 2017, 2:04 AM edit delete reply

Plushie Powers activate!
megados 28th Apr 2017, 8:00 AM edit delete reply
Yes, I see the look on her face as a combination of pain and grogginess.

I'm not sure I'm seeing the same thing you are with the plushie though . . . it looks OK to me?
Timotheus 28th Apr 2017, 1:27 AM edit delete reply

I'm waiting for Acantha to start asking all sorts of pertinent and technical questions of her care givers concerning her procedures. After all, she's been being trained as a medic/doctor/priestess in Nova Roma (as a possible way to get her out of her brother's clutches and into the churches).
Gilrandir 28th Apr 2017, 1:41 AM edit delete reply
Although I am sure that will happen (barring creatrix-induced catastrophe ^_^), @Timotheus, I doubt we will see much of it on-screen, since I have my doubts a large dose of medical minutiae will make for entertaining drama. (I am, however, very often wrong. ^_^)
Just_IDD 28th Apr 2017, 9:13 AM edit delete reply
Medical people are the <strikethrough>best</strikethrough> worst patients. If we are conscious, we constantly want to know our condition, even though we're in no way in the correct State of Mind to interpret it. If I'm being treated I've gotten into the habit of telling them ahead of time so they don't take it personal that I'm asking questions about how well that I'm being cared for.
mjkj 28th Apr 2017, 1:27 AM edit delete reply

Welcome back in the land of the living *hugs Acantha carefully*

Wow the details and the monitors - great =)

Gilrandir 28th Apr 2017, 1:46 AM edit delete reply
BTW, for the record, it appears they are still in 3C (which makes perfect sense to me) for those of you who were wagering. The evidence is in panel 3. (Unless my inference is in error.)
megados 28th Apr 2017, 7:44 AM edit delete reply
I believe you are correct. It it reflected in the same glass over Lynn's shoulder.
Rashala 28th Apr 2017, 3:06 AM edit delete reply

Next q likely is he dead? And isnova Roma intact?
Mark_L_A 28th Apr 2017, 3:30 AM edit delete reply

Did Lynn get her rings back before she left Nova Roma? Or is she wearing a new ring? Possibly a tracking ring?
HiFranc 28th Apr 2017, 3:40 AM edit delete reply

I'm just waiting to find out that Noctis is there. And for her to find out that she has to undergo another operation.
All the Pickles 28th Apr 2017, 4:18 AM edit delete reply

Well she doesn't technically have to have the other operation. Her synthetic heart should do the job just fine. The other one is just because Nova Romans generally prefer the organic approach to the mechanical approach.
HiFranc 28th Apr 2017, 5:06 AM edit delete reply

If she is to be ruler, she can't take the risk of being called a machine.

If she ever wants to return to New Rome with any sort of freedom, she has to have the second operation.
megados 28th Apr 2017, 7:38 AM edit delete reply
Noctis is there. It was pointed out to me by guest1, that in panel 3, over Lynn's shoulder, Noctis is reflected in the glass.
HiFranc 28th Apr 2017, 3:42 AM edit delete reply

I wonder how Acantha will react to the news that Centcomm tried to kill her friend.
megados 28th Apr 2017, 9:43 AM edit delete reply
She will probably react by getting in the long line of people with similar grievances.
HiFranc 28th Apr 2017, 4:05 AM edit delete reply

Just had another thought - is Dolly going to go back to save Dusty's sister?
Gilrandir 28th Apr 2017, 6:09 AM edit delete reply
They have these modern inventions called 'telephones' ... ^_^

Assuming trade relations between Nova Roma and New Troy are regularized, there would be no reason why Dolly would have to go back herself -- which isn't to say she wouldn't. How much time passes, of course, could be an issue.
Sheela 28th Apr 2017, 7:00 AM edit delete reply

All the kittens will be saved !
Romfire 28th Apr 2017, 4:51 AM edit delete reply
I bet every ring and bracelet Lynn has on has a microchip tracker or weapon of some kind.
Sheela 28th Apr 2017, 7:00 AM edit delete reply

Much like the stun sword she had in her bracelet.
Just_IDD 28th Apr 2017, 9:17 AM edit delete reply
We already know that Lynn has a chip that lets them track her. That was how she was found by Dolly underneath the Black Palace.
