- Ellen's beam spell specialization
The next week of comics will also have a Mon, Tues, Thurs, and Friday schedule. I'm going to need every comic I can get to properly convey a sequence of characters powering up to use an attack that will ultimately have no effect.** Please disregard all but the first sentence of this paragraph
Anyone familiar with the Dragon Ball
series will immediately recognize the homage to the Kamehameha attack in the form of Ellen's powered up transformation beam. It took me an embarrassingly long time to settle on what she'd say while powering up the beam considering that "trans-for-ma-tion beam" and "ka-me-ha-me-ha" have the same number of syllables.
As for how Grace is (well, was) blocking the beam, that will be addressed shortly, but it's entirely possible that there's already enough information in the archives to accurately guess before then.
