KITTY IS DOWN! REPEAT, KITTY IS DOWN!
I'm bad at commentary for downer comics, aren't I? I'm all like "sad comic is sad... MOVING ON!"
Of course, such comics usually have very little dialogue and not a whole lot to immediately comment on, so it's not just me not being able handle various feels.
This one has something for to clarify, however, so YAY! Hedge thinks Elliot is like Grace, so his expectation is that Elliot would simply be dizzy after transforming. Instead we have, well, kitty down.
GRANTED, you DID just sorta thwack him in the head with a steel shackle on the end of a long chain, HEDGE. Ya think maybe THAT had something to do with it?!
