Author Notes

September 28, 2021 So. This whole segment should've answer a few questions, right?


September 28, 2021 This isn't a murder. It's a massacre.
September 28, 2021 Yes, this page alone answers some

"He is just":
- They know who it is. At least Dezba and Arthur know him.

"going to keep":
- They know that he did it before. Not just one time. And to them, people who were with Secret Star.

"Picking us off":
- The Hobbs family was somehow affiliated with Secret Star.

And there is the bloody symbol on the wall. It's the same killer Fink chased in Alaska, the same who was in Moonbase.

They still want to keep it under the rug, as much as possible. Why? just to keep Secret Star out of all this - or was the killer also somehow affiliated with Secret Star?

The cleanup of all the gore will require some work, this time. This was done on purpose - does the killer no longer care or did he want some attention and maybe connect Secret Star to the murders?

New theory:
Assuming that the killer did this to create attention: Maybe it was the killer who put the body of the first victim where Logan found it - and set up the man substitutes to lead them to Moonbase. That doesn't rule out that the killer is also the coyote that carried the hand of the first victim, and it doesn't rule out that the killer is the one who impersonated Otto at the Smoke 'n' Gun.

Well. At least something!
September 28, 2021 The easiest thing is burn the place down, removing all the evidence.
September 29, 2021 ... this... this isn't a bad idea!
October 8, 2021 Less effective than you'd think … and out in the desert, flooding the place isn't an option.
September 28, 2021 it really bothers me that "he" killed the dog.

NOW i want justice!
September 28, 2021 (From what the Deputy said I think that's a goat.)
September 28, 2021 Oh. That’s definitely the dog :) the goats would be outside…
September 29, 2021 oh my god, what? why are the goats outside?
segregation, man. i thought we'd got past all that.
October 8, 2021 Scapegoating! specifically landscapegoating.
October 8, 2021 That's a very American reaction.
Nuke a town. Hmmm.
Hurt a kid of a certain age or a domesticated animal, CRUCIFY HIM!
September 28, 2021 It looks like the work of a complete madman taking pleasure in his job. This is a very dangerous and sadistic person.
September 29, 2021 "So. This whole segment should've answer a few questions, right?"

AHAHAHAHAHAHA! You ba***rds. I'm taking notes for the day when I finally start writing my own stories, and filing them under "Plotting: How to simultaneously infuriate your fans and keep them coming back for more."

So not only do we have a secret society of dubious intent, we have a homicidal "he" dedicated to offing members of said secret society. With extreme prejudice. And stylistic flourishes reminiscent of Moonbase.

Moonbase had that froggy-looking little alien. Kind of underimpressive to be "he". But maybe associated with him in some way.

Interesting that "he" killed the whole family, too. Just as the stone tested the entire Begay family. Suggests that there's a blood connection between members of this society. Maybe we're looking at two feuding groups of aliens?
September 29, 2021 We multitalented like that :)

And yup yup yup... connecting dots!
October 8, 2021 Wait … the aliens in the Muppet Show's series, Pigs in Space often said "Yup, yup, yup." They're related!
October 8, 2021 image
October 1, 2021 Or two feuding - one group of aliens trying to pass as humans, one ski walker who is pretty powerful, and an FBI agent whose superpower is listening - and birdwatching. This just keeps getting better.
October 3, 2021 There is definitely a feud... a few feuds, right?
October 18, 2021 My jaw actually dropped when this page loaded :O
October 19, 2021 haha! That's always a great reaction!
October 19, 2021 Indeed! DEFINITELY unexpected. This comic is so great :D
