Hey, Black Betty doesn't look like she eats children for once!

And who's going to help poor whats-her-face off the building?

to be fair...we've never seen Betty eat kids, or even threaten to that I recall. she looks wicked when she wants, and has a clever tounge and sharp wit... she certaonly has been up to mischief..but I have yet to see her DO anything malicious, malevolent, or..well..WICKED.

After Zandra's dealings with Sam, I don't think she's in the mood for more rabbits, Pooka-flavored or otherwise. Betty's one "knight" that might find she needs a thicker suit of armor...

Just a heads up, you mispelled "church" on panel five.

I really, really like that Black Betty found a person that remembers Sandra because of a "good deed" ($20) and not because she set them on fire on a rooftop or terrified them at night. : ) Good deeds do come around!

Isn't that the exact kind of luck a Pooka would attract- the one unusual action of the lot?

Let's hope she remembers all of the details instead of "ooooo *stab stab stab* time!"

I like how we can get a peek of the original house in panel 3 where this story all started.

Is it possible to love Black Betty's character even more? She's so completely unpredictable.

She's heavily implied she has the capacity to be deliciously wicked - and I'm waiting for it (I know it's coming) - but then she is in a quandary, and so abducts a random human, kindly asks for advice, wholeheartedly accepts Emily's choice as her own - and then parts with "Let's hope you weren't a bad fool today" and leaves her stranded on the roof.

Perfect.

Could a kind soul link me to the comic wherein the $20 changes hands?

It was never actually seen to change hands, but it was offered here:

And then Emily provided Sandra with a distraction, and when we saw her next she had acquired some bling:

And this pattern continued to recur over the course of Emily's life. It was a fairly normal one, as lives go, but every few years it would be interrupted by the occult. A supernatural entity would descend upon her, seemingly from nowhere, and pull her aside into an alley or a closet or someplace where they wouldn't attract attention. The reasons varied. Some desired a favor - never anything significant or costly, mind you, but always rather peculiar. Others sought her advice. Still others simply wanted someone to talk to, even if only for a few moments. In one notable instance, a Swamp monster pulled her aside to give her advice on how to catch the attention of a man who would later become her husband. No two creatures had the same reason for seeking her out; indeed, the only common thread was that not one of them meant her harm. For her part, Emily took these encounters in stride. Perhaps she had a unique ability to deal with the numinous. Perhaps, deep down, she desired a closer encounter with the unusual. But I think it more probable that her early encounters with demons and pookas left her sense of normalcy somewhat off-kilter. In any case, she went on to live a long, full, mostly normal life. Nobody in the real world gets a true "happily ever after," but some lucky few get something very close. Emily was one of the few.
