whoah! these flying bot insects don't have the cable thingies linking them with whale ship vagina thing. i'm guessing they're not part of the robot crew

29 Oct 2014 | 12:04 AM

Sorry Paz, the boat isn't listening 😔

29 Oct 2014 | 12:09 AM

sorry tom, but the second panel looks like a giant wildly colored sparkle-vulva (or not sorry, maybe it was intentional)

29 Oct 2014 | 12:14 AM

Ooh, update at 9am instead of 10am. Does this mean GunnerKrigg does not do DST? Cool!

29 Oct 2014 | 12:15 AM

Calling it now: The love between Paz and Kat will show the ship the true meaning of love.

29 Oct 2014 | 12:20 AM

The tick-tocks are looking nice this morning... :)

Now we're talkin'! Time to play a little "hard-ball!"

29 Oct 2014 | 12:24 AM

Bet he runs an random number generation algorithm that decides whether he responds with 'Enough!' or 'Silence!'

29 Oct 2014 | 12:24 AM

Whale anatomy?!

29 Oct 2014 | 12:24 AM

And Kat said that lecture on the Aorta of sperm whales was a waste of time.

29 Oct 2014 | 12:28 AM

Wait, the drone become like tictoc?

29 Oct 2014 | 12:29 AM

Oh hot crap the seraphs are all birds in the Zimmyverse.

29 Oct 2014 | 12:31 AM

Now that's strange. Did the ship order those other robots to interfere? Or did they do so because they saw the seeds of doubt being planted? Maybe this lunacy was not of the ships own making but rather placed there and encouraged by the robots we've been assuming were merely pawns.

29 Oct 2014 | 12:50 AM

Paz is right. A whale body isn't enough. You need a sexy whale body

29 Oct 2014 | 12:55 AM

you better build a fail-safe, Kat. Paz can tell you lots about it

29 Oct 2014 | 1:02 AM

The Tic-Tocs!!

29 Oct 2014 | 1:25 AM

Boy, maybe I just spent too much time in art school, but panel 2 has a bit of a Georgia O'Keeffe thing going on there.

29 Oct 2014 | 1:29 AM

Wtf?! The seraphs?! Zimmy-zone sure made them weird looking.

29 Oct 2014 | 1:36 AM

Are those bird robots but mutated or evil vulcan robots

29 Oct 2014 | 1:45 AM

Whale? At this point it looks to me like the ship is more likely to turn into some kind of gull or other sea predator bird. Which would be tricky romantically given Lindsey's biological profile...

29 Oct 2014 | 2:32 AM

Soooo the tic-toc's vicious cousins appear

29 Oct 2014 | 2:35 AM

Actually, shouldn't their focus be crustation/arthropod anatomy? To become a male droid in Bud's image makes most sense. Bud strongly resembles a non magical coconut crab, and Paz may be familiar with their physiology. I also suspect that Bud's kind may have magivolved from coconut crabs at some point, probably born from some Polynesian Pacific mythology that stimulated the ether. The largest non magical arthropod was giganto Scorpio 400 million years ago, and it was still only about an 8th her mass.

Poor Paz and Mr S- I like the work you on homestucks paradox space,

29 Oct 2014 | 3:17 AM

Who would have thought, a terrorist ship born in the name of love.

29 Oct 2014 | 3:23 AM

... this statement is true.... sucks that the calvary is searching for zim rather than the problem...

29 Oct 2014 | 3:31 AM

This ship has now started to annoy me. Don't threaten Paz! *shakes fist*

29 Oct 2014 | 3:35 AM

Kat, who're you kidding? She has done nothing but watch you work this whole time.

29 Oct 2014 | 3:35 AM

I am now looking forward tremendously to Lindsey turning him down.

29 Oct 2014 | 3:46 AM

toc-toc birds?

29 Oct 2014 | 4:26 AM

It's actually about ethics in gaming journalism.

29 Oct 2014 | 4:45 AM

The claws of the gargoyle seraphim remind me of the rear claws of Deinonychus.

29 Oct 2014 | 5:01 AM

They better not touch Paz.

29 Oct 2014 | 5:03 AM

What's your agenda, archangels? Obviously using the obsessed stalker for some weirder purposes. Also, laying it down a bit thick, if you ask me. Threatening the hero's SO? Haven't you guys read the Evil Overlord's List?

29 Oct 2014 | 5:18 AM

robot skesis? *hive five to anyone that gets that*

29 Oct 2014 | 5:59 AM
Pseudo Nyme

Is . . . Is the Ship being used? Are the other robots the one who instigated this whole plan, maybe to see if Kat could turn mechanical life organic, and they're just using the Ship as a red herring?

29 Oct 2014 | 6:10 AM

Quick Robots! to the rescue!

29 Oct 2014 | 6:11 AM

The plot thickens...

29 Oct 2014 | 6:18 AM

Option 1: Kat loves Paz so much and wants no harm to come to her, but if she goes through with this, Paz may be upset with her because integrity and stuff. Option 2: It's a ruse on Kat's part to keep Paz close and buy some time. I'm hoping for option 2. I want Kat and Paz to be together forever but I know even fairy tales don't always have happy endings. Surf Wisely.

29 Oct 2014 | 6:45 AM

Oh, Paz I soooo want to hug you!

29 Oct 2014 | 7:19 AM
Not A Robot

Looks like the ship is determined to be a homewrecker.

29 Oct 2014 | 7:39 AM

We all saw "Iron Man", and know that during the past few pages Kat thought a scheme to keep the new mega-body for herself! :-o

29 Oct 2014 | 7:54 AM

Panel 3 is really good, Tom, even by your standards. And following that up with panel 4 was downright scary. Well done.

29 Oct 2014 | 8:03 AM

Please, Kat, be sneaky... PLEASE be sneaky... and stall. Stalling for time is good.

Kat, when you have control of somebody's central nervous system at the molecular(subatomic?) level, and they threaten your girlfriend, the correct response is: "Try that again and I will unmake you one cell at a time, and every second will seem like an eternity of agony beyond your wildest nightmares."

Grey Face

Whoa, are those tic-tocs?

29 Oct 2014 | 9:01 AM

Those guys sure are freaky. :( Tom, I love this chapter so much. I really think you've hit your stride with this one. Every page is gorgeous, and the story is one of the most fun romps I've had in a web comic. Thanks for writing it!

29 Oct 2014 | 9:24 AM

Those seraphim are looking rather avian here in Zimmingham. Are they related in any way to the thousand-eyes/tic-tocs?

29 Oct 2014 | 9:24 AM

Bisqwit: Gunnerkrigg updates at exactly midnight US Pacific time, so it follows American summer time rules, which are usually one week off from European rules.

29 Oct 2014 | 9:52 AM

Ugh, those seraph harpies are pretty dang scary. Brr. But Kat is thinking on her feet. Good girl.

29 Oct 2014 | 9:59 AM

They're birds! Just like the baby pigeon...LOVE IT.

29 Oct 2014 | 9:59 AM

T-Tik Toks?

29 Oct 2014 | 10:10 AM

Pretty sure those are the S1 robots, which would explain why they look like tik toks a bit

29 Oct 2014 | 11:17 AM

The seraphs sure look creepy!

29 Oct 2014 | 11:18 AM


29 Oct 2014 | 11:34 AM

The flying bot insects are probable the Zimmyfied angel bots.

29 Oct 2014 | 11:39 AM

...aaaaaaaand only now, with the little comment, do I look at whale skeletons and realise "Oh, so THAT'S what it wants to be".

29 Oct 2014 | 12:05 PM

Thanks, "Joey"! That thought crossed my mind, too. The Seraphs seem to be having awfully "independent" thoughts, for mere drones...? One might even think they had their own little agenda going there...?

29 Oct 2014 | 12:38 PM

Holy shit those birds!! Their faces are incredible!

29 Oct 2014 | 12:43 PM

The ship's becoming a whale? But... Lindsey's a giant crab... He might as well stay a robot.

29 Oct 2014 | 12:58 PM

I'm usually against violence, but I say it's time we destroy the seraph models. I mean all of the fuckers, gone, crushed to a fine dust. No one will miss them. In fact, I wan't to see King Robot ordering his minions up on them. Please, make it happen, Tom!

29 Oct 2014 | 1:17 PM

So THAT's where the seraphs went.

29 Oct 2014 | 1:25 PM

im so happy that paz and kat are together

29 Oct 2014 | 2:27 PM
A monkey

So Roboat wanted to become a sea creature and the Seraphs helped out by coming up with a plan and providing the ether generators, and now seem to want to avoid a discussion that could result in him getting talked out of the whole plan. This has strong parallels with when Renard wanted to become human to win Surma's affectopm, so Coyote gave him the ability to body-hop and cajoled him into stealing Daniel's body. It didn't work as planned, and ended up meaning that he never saw Surma again. I'm calling it: Renard will use his story to try to appeal to Roboat to stop this.

29 Oct 2014 | 4:14 PM

I'm surprised I've not seen anyone else bring up the parallels between the ship's dangerous and selfish behaviour here in pursuit of love and Renard's. The above exchange here about how a change of body will not 'make her like you' is directly relevant to Renard's false (and equally foolish and selfish) belief that he could possess another man and win Surma's favour.

@Pangur Ban: I'm impressed! You called this page exactly in your last comment! I bow to your wisdom.

29 Oct 2014 | 5:20 PM

Kat, Creator, after this whole mess is over, I think these MONSTERS(the Seraphs) should be put under arrest by the Robot community. Just as Robot once was... I'm sure they'll get quite the kick out of their *************** minds!

29 Oct 2014 | 6:08 PM

Kat, if they think you are a God, you should try saying No! And be a wrathful God.

29 Oct 2014 | 9:33 PM
Demon fox ;)

Arg why finish now?!

29 Oct 2014 | 11:55 PM

Not wise to mess with the creator's girlfriend, it may not turn out well.
