It is a time of galactic terror! Millions of voices suddenly cry out in terror and are suddenly silenced as MASSIVE WORDS travel across the galaxy, leaving destroyed star systems in their wake as they irresponsibly chronicle the EVENTS from a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away

Meanwhile, in an unrelated story, IIMI ISCRA, involuntary leader of the SOCRATIC CLUB and teacher's assistant in logic class, is about to face an unexpected challenge…

When her history teacher, BARBARA CELARENT, uses a cliché for a lecture, Iimi will have to answer the question: is it true that religion is the leading cause to…

 Post-Comic Notes:

 Sicut Dudum, written by Eugene IV in 1435, can be read HERE.

 Kismetta's theory linking the Crusade account to Revelation 14:20 is one of my own. Like Iimi, I can neither prove nor disprove it. But looking at the geography and probable conditions of Solomon's Stables (misidentified as the Portico by the Crusaders), I suspect it was hyperbole, not literal. If the blood could pool up to a horse's bridle (roughly four to six feet in height), so could the urine of who knows how many horses.

It's Iimi! Gotterdammerung

 Iimi's hearing has finally come. Her father is confident, but Iimi worries that the person hearing the case will be swayed by the lies. Who will survive when the school faces… Götterdämmerung


Pre-Comic Notes:

Götterdämmerung literally means "Twilight of the gods." In the most literal sense, it refers to the final battle of the gods and ultimate destruction in Germanic-Nordic myth. In a more modern sense, it means "situations of world-altering destruction," figuratively destroying the world as we know it.

Post-Comic Notes:

The Background cover art, a background panel on page 3, and Iimi as Vulcan (page 27) were AI-generated.

 And so ends the Reign of Error arc. There was a limit as to how far Ms. Otios' faction could go without some permanent change. Otios and Gehr are gone. But not all the foes are gone. So, it is Götterdämmerung that Otios' faction was destroyed. But, out of that chaos, new challenges will arise.

But there will always be new challenges. They're not all blatant thuggish attacks like Otios and her real-life equivalents.

Looking back at past issues, you will see Mr. Gehr with his phone out during particularly damning bits of conversation. So, this isn't a deus ex machina solution.

 I always thought that Iimi's father had a too-passive role in the comic so far. I figured he needed a chance to show the kind of protective Father he is to his family. I hope the hearing had some sense of "courtroom drama" to it.

 See you next issue.

It's Iimi! The Battle of All Mothers

 As Iimi copes with attending a different high school, her sister, Paula, and their friends race to find evidence to exonerate her. Meanwhile, the parents' group realizes that talking among themselves is insufficient, and now is the time to act. It will be… The Battle of All Mothers

(I decided to release this comic a day early. While the title and image have nothing to do with the events of 9/11/2001, I did worry that the scene of destruction on the cover and title might lead people to think it was insensitive to release it on the day of the memorial.)

Post-Comic Notes:

Some Artwork in this comic was AI-generated through NightCafe. I'm not planning to make a habit of this. But the semi-distorted (you should have seen the ones I deleted) appearance fits in with Iimi being in a new school that is alien to her.

 The title is derived from the first Kuwait war in 1991. Saddam Hussein promised the "mother of all battles" (ام المعاركumm al-ma'ārik) if the Allies attempted to invade.

 An embarrassing note: I discovered one outfit for characters in ComiPo had an inappropriate logo for a Christian-themed comic. I probably never noticed it before because I never used it on a significant supporting character. I blurred it out in this comic and changed the outfit for future appearances of the character.

 So, my apologies to anyone who may have noticed it previously. It was unintentional.
