- Watches: "It doesn't need much" (Reminder: That's actually Tedd in Grace's form in this linked comic)

Raise your hand if you thought the watches seemed too good to be true. Right. I can't see you, but I'm going to pretend you all raised your hands so I can feel clever.

I had actually considered continuing with visuals similar to the previous comic with only things like visions of the watch and Sarah in the background to shake things up as time very, very slowly progressed in gradually more obvious ways, but just picturing that nearly made me pass out from boredom. The previous comic was neato for establishing the slowdown, but I decided it was enough and that it was time to get metaphysical.

The transition from physical to metaphysical in panel one required two versions of the panel to be drawn pretty much in their entirety even though only a fraction of either one would be visible in the end.

As for why Tedd's apparently female in the metaphysical panels, I leave that open to speculation. I will also laugh maniacally if I learn that anyone hadn't noticed that prior to reading the previous sentence because, hey, it's Tedd.
