Oh man, Black Betty is so enjoyable to watch happen from a safe distance away. Thank goodness she's there and I'm here!

For Betty, there -is- no minimum safe distance from her...

I mean... She's not lying? I'm pretty sure Zandra's "Reign of Terror" was (or is) going to included both humans AND monsters. A healthy dose of fear might keep both sides from going all murdery-like.

If nothing else, she was likely planning a, mostly, safe night. After all, she wants humans scared, to help create an environment that's good for monsters, and dead humans aren't scared.

On the other hand, the monsters could open a theme park or fun house. That way they can scare the bejesus out of the humans and get paid for it.

I still don't know what's up with that chain in black betty's ears... seems uncomfortable and wouldn't it limit the motion of her ears?

What if black betty is a crystal from another universe?

If Betty's ears are strong enough to stand up while she is wearing a freaking heavy chain, How strong is the rest of her?

I don't want that rabbit seriously angry with me, ever!

On the other hand, she's cute, funny, beautiful, and sexy. It's a pity she scares the crap out of me.

Sneaky Betty is almost as sneaky as Joe. Panel 5 has her showing unsettling levels of subtlety in severing our good officers radio, while still prattling on.

and I was going to make a crack about where Betty would rank on the "crazy/hot" matrix, but I think her crazy rating would involve exponential numbers

Betty's "crazy" value is so high up, we don't have a name for the number that it is.

And wow, didn't notice the policewoman's communication get cut off... heh heh heh. Her bad night is going to be made worse. Will Rebecca turn her... or will Betty do something more fun?

Don't worry about not noticing the cut wires. The police woman didn't notice either.

That's just a rabbit thing. They sever wires. Anybody who's had rabbits knows, it's just a thing they do, and to keep wires out of reach.

200% zoom is as wide as the comic will fit my monitor without side scrolling, and the detail is beautiful at that size.

Aren't you supposed to read a citizen his rights before you do that? Well, who nose how the monster police's arrest protocols are conducted. Does this make Betty a nose hare? Maybe that guy is no longer a vampire since he is not a nostril-atu anymore. While we can laugh, I'm sure if we asked the treed vampire, he would say his situation is snot funny. As a rabbit,(of sorts) Betty can wiggle her nose, but please don't let her wiggle another person's nose! I wonder what kind of life Betty's parents had. They must have had many hare-raising experiences.

She really shouldn't keep her finger on the trigger like that, should have paid more attention in firearms safety.

She eases off the trigger by panel six, she just needed a little time to feel like they aren't going to kill her any second.

Joe, if I hadn't said it before, your level of detail is one of the reasons I've kept following this comic, your art is beautiful.

And as a bonus, you threw in some dark humor without damaging the fourth wall! Red letter day my friend.

Now I have an image in my head of the three walking away and the poor guy in the tree saying "All right, we'll call it a draw."

Later an old English couple walks by and the wife says "Be careful. There's something in that tree." The husband replies "Don't mind 'im, he's completely 'armless."

One should be very careful when making requests of fae and other creatures of whimsy... They may very well grant them, if so inclined or owing favor, but beware your wording. For if there the slightest room for interpretation, they shall most assuredly abuse it for amusement, mischief or malice! Our friend here, for example, HAS had his nose itch relieved! By having the problem quite capably... Removed. These very principles can extend to granted favors and wishes. A trinket that hides you from scrying may not hide the trinket itself. A gift of strength may come with encumbrance, spending it merely supporting oneself.

Keep such matters in mind when treading matters with their ilk, and know you do so at risk to yourself - and care especially that one should not become indebted to such wily beings however possible. For a gift granted freely and without consequence from their number is of such scarcity as to called into immediate doubt, for so rarely is any given without a detriment, a trick, a condition... and even with these, often a price.

What price? They come in many forms, bearing on their need, fancy, spite, or whim. Think carefully on what they ask, lest the price be the asker themselves.


(Relevant? Maybe, maybe not. It was going to be comment on the danger of a simple request around someone like Betty, but I felt a spur of whimsy myself and spun into a bout of prose. Forgive my wandering digits. The fae are an interesting topic, but all that aside, I find whimsical characters like Betty so very entertaining.)
