I confess the speculation last week’s strip inspired caught me unawares. It didn’t even occur to me that Zurida’s words in the last panel might be construed to mean that she was suggesting another mastermind behind everything. Obviously, that’s not exactly the case. Of course, there IS another mastermind lurking somewhere and we’ll meet him eventually… but not just yet.

Big thanks to Marc for pulling some overtime and getting this one out as a double. We could have split it pretty easily, but I just felt like the information you get here needs to be done all in one go to really be effective. Great work, Marc!

If you’re completely lost, Zurida is talking about Captain Spectacular’s conversation with Money Man a few weeks back, and you can check out the pertinent parts starting right here
