There was a late Mother's Day comic on the 10th; it was up for only about half a day. Please click on "Previous" to check it out. To be honest, it wasn't really about Mother's Day. It just had mothers in it. It also channelled my rage.

Panel 1: We are back in Rose's imagination. She is once again seeing herself as a character in a hardboiled detective story. She stands in a grimy office, pondering.

Narration Box: The case was coming together, but it was also falling apart.

Panel 2: Rose-as-detective hunts through some papers on a desk.

Narration Box: Slowly but surely, the puzzle pieces had accumulated...yet there seemed no way to slot them together into a coherent picture.

Panel 3: Rose-as-detective looks sidelong at Iz-as-detective's-assistant, who is also pondering.

Narration Box: It didn't help that my bumbling sidekick had been sniffing around, putting together his own vastly inferior but still vaguely worrying puzzle.

Panel 4: Iz and Rose are walking through the park.

Iz: We need to talk, don't we?

Rose: ...said the bumbling sidekick, driving unexpectedly to the heart of the matter.
