So, I came back from The Last Jedi, and it's good, quite good. It is not a beat for beat retelling of Empire the way Force Awakens was, but there were quite a few call outs. Like in ESB, the First Order is on the rise and the Resistance is on the run. That's not particularly a spoiler, since that's where we left off the last movie. The heroes have to split up and go on their own journeys but are mostly brought together for the finale.  There were a number of scenes that were directly call outs of the original trilogy as well,  but they make sense in the context of the film, and it does tell it's own story. In all, it's a worthy addition to the franchise.

Plot twist: Tilly is Hannelore's sibling.
I was thinking half-sib.  "Ewww, an infant.  If you want it, Brontdyn, take it and go," is completely in character for Queen Bea.

And let's not even get into what happened when Marten and Dora broke up...

(Speaking of which - anyone got their Volume 6 stuff yet?)

I've never encoutered so much aversion and hatred in a forum before. Somewhere I heard that disappointed fans can become the worst haters. This may be an example. I kinda wonder why the moderation doesn't call for a less agressive intonation here. If I was the owner of a forum and the participants would mostly talk hateful and respectless about my creation, I would surely think about whether I need to provide that forum at all.

Seven/eight years ago, Jeph was indeed thinking exactly that.  It took a complete change of moderation staff to save it.  But things were a lot worse then than anything in the past few weeks.
NOw, I wasn't around at that time, but what has been said about Tilly has mostly been civil compared to f.i. the discussions when Claire came out.

I only just now noticed there's tiny text in the lower right corner of each comic.  How long has that been going on?
Since the last timeskip (2 years IRL). 3130 seems to be the earliest I found. Then it skips a few days and from 3133 it's been every day.
@BenRG Before this, the text in the lower right was only a copyright notice.

Erm... Since the start of the comic?

Will we find out more of Hannelore's backstory?

We can hope?

I don't remember: Are Hanner's parents still married? And are their respective companies?


Someone suggested out that maybe the Tessier-Ashpools in Will Gibson's Neuromancer were the inspiration for the Elliot-Chatham's ... which would make Hanners the opposite of 3Jane Tessier-Ashpool (3rd female clone of her name, Queen of spoiled brats, all-round nasty piece of work), Hannerdad's counterpart would be the almost-late-but-not-lamented wife-slayer John Harness Tessier-Ashpool, whose main talent apart from spousicide is his creativity at staging his own departure from this vale of tears, and Hannermom's opposite number would be Marie-France, mother-in-spirit of the clan's AIs Wintermute and Neuromancer and religiously convinced that human evolution scuttled up a wrong branch once the Homo-family started developing consciousness.

TL;DR - The TA's operate at such baroque levels of f**ked-in-the-headness they make the Elliot-Chatham's look achingly conventional.
