- I'd take some time to apologize for the delay of this page. Alot is happening around the comic, and big changes are afoot. What those changes are, will become clear soon. Don't worry. It's all good. And... there is another reason for my tardiness, but let's not dwell on that. Let's instead look to the HORIZON.

This is important. The three distinguished gentlemen around the table on this page should in no legal way be confused for Charlie Wise, creator of Groovy, Kinda, Andy Purviance, creator of I, Mummy, and my brother, creator of many beatings throughout my childhood. You have no evidence that I in any way stole their likenesses for this page. Absolutely ZERO.

From this moment forward, the rest of the chapter though, belongs to Rai, and his fight to reach midnight. Will he ever again see DAWN?

Lastly, for those interested, the following is the english translation of the german text on this page:

PANEL1
-Have you read the latest by Ishikawa?

PANEL2
-It really captures the fear of the unreliability of memory in a post-industrial world.

-I've heard good things, dear friend.

PANEL3
-But unfortunately, I don't read anything written after 1830. I find it all both harsh and vulgar.

PANEL4
-You should come by my bookstore some time. Our 1830's section was just refurbished.

PANEL5
-My friends, a toast to high culture!

-Culture!

-Culture!

- Ha! I loves me a good inside joke--especially when I'm far enough inside to understand it! ^^

Kudos! :)

- Oh ho ho, you devil you. What a handsome, and, might I say, suave group of men.
Well done, Hjels, well done.
I agree with that roguish devil in the 3rd panel. None of the cool kids ever reads anything written after 1830. Especially that silly Victorian steampunk stuff.
Why do I think Rai is gonna come blasting through the middle of their table in the next page?

- I love the character not reading anything after 1830 ha ha.
Awesome strip Marius. Let's hope these nice gentlemen survive Rai's incursion into the city.

- @Delta-v: I worry some times that I go too far with the inside jokes. But once I got this idea, I didn't want to let it go.

- @GroovyKinda: For Rai to come blasting by was the original intention. I came down on a different idea, though. If you look closely on the last panel, you'll see a silent shadow moving across the roof tops.

- Your cameos are always so seamlessly worked in! And the translation is much-appreciated for this monolingual pleb over here.
