It’s Iimi! Don’t Panic!

Krysta and Daryl are fighting again (what else is new?) and rope Iimi into their dispute over the state of the Church. So grab your towel and crank up “Journey of the Sorcerer” as Iimi explains why she’s telling us, Don’t Panic!

Preliminary Notes: The cover is an homage to the computer graphics in the 1980s BBC version of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. Once I had the title of the comic, I knew that the cover would have to go this way.

Post-Comic Notes:

Since one reader has already asked me: No, Iimi’s NOT gay. This is the residue of the rumor that emerged in Issue 108. It will probably remain with her throughout high school and pop up at the worst possible times.

Normally, I don’t give away the secrets. But since at least one reader was troubled by that, maybe others are as well. I’d rather not lose readers over a misconception.

It’s Iimi! Soph. Iimi and her Hounded Companions

When Iimi and her friends are again targeted, Della rallies to help her… or will that “help” actually bring about more harm? Who can say? It’s just one more incident in the battles of Soph. Iimi and her Hounded Companions!


Preliminary Notes:

The cover’s title (and font) are send-ups of the 1960s-era Marvel Comic Sgt. Fury and His Howling Commandos

Post-Comic Notes:

The font used (Dave Gibbons Journal) when Della speaks as Ma-Vi, was designed to look like the journal of the vicious Rorschach from the graphic novel The Watchmen. Who is Ma-Vi? While it’s not yet time to tell the story of Della’s past, you might be able to guess it was dark and troubled.

Della’s ringtone (page 12) is Holy Diver, by Dio.

It’s Iimi! Bug-Out Bag!

Relations between Kismetta and her family are at their lowest point. As the mistrust and hurts grow, Kismetta overhears things that makes her fear her parents aren’t dealing honestly with her. It leaves her wondering if she needs to prepare a… Bug-Out Bag!

Post-Comic notes:


I actually went to some (English language) real-estate sites in the UAE. The seven-room house Sumeja mentioned was a real listing in Sharjah City at the time I was doing the research ($2.5M). It also has a maid room. Prices for this kind of property there were substantially cheaper than in Dubai (which have been skyrocketing with Russian oligarchs moving their wealth out of the country). But, as previously established, their family is wealthy.
