It looks like the wall between Amber and Amazi-Girl is starting to crack.

The dividing line between the two is definitely becoming thinner and thinner.

It's more that Amber wants there to be a dividing line between the two and that it's never been as thick or as clear-cut as she's wanted.

And I think that the point is fast approaching where she can't run from it anymore

Not really; just poorly-socialised, defensive (to the point where she's afraid of letting anyone get close to her to maybe hurt her) and abrupt. Yeah, she can be rude and selfish but she has her good qualities too. You just need to either make her feel safe enough to show them or be in a situation so immediately demanding of action that she feels no choice but to act on them.

Why was she wearing them on top of her actual shoes?

Carla's line in the last panel makes me wonder if she's going to attempt to salvage the Jug Shoes or otherwise improve upon the design.

I think, knowing Carla, it was a bit of both.

I mean why doesn't she wear them instead of her actual shoes?

It's a test run, not an operational deployment; Joyce doesn't want to risk the actual skin of the soles of her feet until she's sure of her creation!

Just a guess: I'm wondering if Carol had an issue about her kids running around barefoot at home; some parents do.

I wonder if Carla is from a small planet somewhere in the vicinity of Betelgeuse and knows Ix.

Sorry if I've asked this before, but what does "storyline over" mean? Does it mean he's not going to address anything about this anymore?

He breaks each day of the story into a separate "storyline", and when he publishes the comics in book form there are four "storylines" per book. "Storyline over" just means it's the end of the day, and tomorrow's comic will be tomorrow-in-universe.

Ahh, ok. I'll try not to forget what "storyline over" means, because I'm like 99% sure I asked this last time.

The question remains whether Ruth feels ready to leave the Hospital and where she'll go when she does.  I know she has no desire to go back home, that place is toxic, and is partially responsible for creating the Ruthless Ruth we all know and love and led to this mess in the first place.

Will she go back to College?  I'm not sure if she can  What about her and Billie?  Where''s that gonna go?  Ifshee does go back how are the others going to react?  She won't be R.A. anymore,that's a given, and if she's able to, will she want to go back?
