Dangling Plot Thread Roundup
August 8, 2010 ~ 8 Comments
Many of these old plot threads get picked up over the course of “Demons” and the next storyline, “Mad Science Is Decadent and Depraved,” so I thought it’d be helpful to mention them again and jog readers’ memories. I never did a feature like this again, even though it might have been useful later on as well. Then again, we’re currently about halfway through Narbonic, which is as logical a time as any to do this.
As I’ve said many times already, I’m not happy with the way this storyline turned out, but it was good for tying up a few old plotlines and advancing a few others. It’s also crucial in advancing, or at least complicating, the Dave/Helen relationship.
Andrew and I really did watch a lot of Sid and Marty Krofft around this time.

Need a strip for a Sunday …
I don’t have an idea,
Time is running out fast!
It’s too soon to
Have Andrew draw a filler for me …
I’ll just recap what has passed …
All those dangling plot threads …
They’re so tangled and knotted,
Such confusion severe!
Guess it’s time to
Remind you what the heck’s going on,
Just in case they re-appear.
Weaving all the plots together,
Man, this isn’t easy!
Sid & Marty Krofft shows
Are glo-ri-ous-ly cheesy!
I need fan art or haiku!
Now the comic is half-through
Its original run …
I need something to fill another Sunday for me …
Wait, I just did …
Guess … it’s … done!
Sometimes you’ve got to get through the hard plot points to give the overall story a greater strength.
Only halfway?? Holy crap.
“She wouldn’t do it for FREE?” actually makes a lot of sense in hindsight – only base carnal urges can stay Dr. N from instantly accepting a delicious murder, but why, Helen asks himself, would his mother hesitate killing a man she had yet never met face to face?
The answer, as this very page mentions, is that she met Dave age 6 and was thus able to anticipate that he would mature into the handsome beast we all know today.
Shaenon, did you get a chance to see the Kroffts at Comic-con?
No, but Andrew excitedly told me they were there.
