I've also just caught up on episode 22. Definitely good to have Simon feeling positive! It's a dense stroy and also a dense episode as there's not much room for chat outside the story itself.
There's some really great art in this episode - aside from the excellent chess page, I've always really liked the panel of the Potemkin plunging towards the Tsar's head palace followed by the panel of the man himself with his mouth open in horror as though the battleship were about to hit him.

The story here is top notch and I still dislike the irregulars (Elena aside) on the re-read. They're all horrible.

Not so much a question to Edie as anyone on here - when Dante toasts 'what might have been' with Jocasta, who is it he is thinking of? Is that a young Jocasta?
You're a dark horse, Boots.

Did I really spend the best part of an hour last Friday night listening to two grown-ups discussing a handful of episodes of a comic more than twenty years old? And having done so, did I then spend a similar amount of time listening to the previous podcast, before then reassessing said comics for myself?
I know what my problem is, but what’s wrong with the pair of you? Shouldn’t you be sitting in front of the television, bickering like normal couples?
Why can't everybody just, y'know, be friends and everything?

Surely it's Jena?

That would make sense from Dante's point of view.
