TRANSCRIPT: This is the text of the comic, for purposes such as translation and internet searches.
(In Arsonella's occult store, Thierry negotiates something with her. Allison scowls at him.)
ARSONELLA: Thierry, oh it’s
so weird, I haven’t
seen you since that
You didn’t call, or
THIERRY: Yeah! Life’s been
wild, you know, haha. Anyway,
I need a
(Arsonella lays out the terms of her further negotiation, handing confused Allison a card.)
ARSONELLA: OK, but you’re
paying for a
And I’m not
So I’ll just hand
Ooh you got the
seven of pentacles.
Lucky! Or... not.
I don’t remember.
(At the reading table, cards scattered about, Thierry and Arsonella continue
the discussion. Allison is intent on drawing, pen and notebook in hand.)
ARSONELLA: What’s in it for me?
Last time I did you
a favor I ended up
in the hospital.
So many stitches.
It was awful.
I still dream of--
THIERRY: Okay okay!
(Thierry describes a deal, and we see the vision he elucidates in panel. It's Arsonella on a chaise longue, pampered
by demonesses. They are shaped like women, but have fuzzy bodies, bat wings, and Claudesque skull heads.)
THIERRY:You know I have connections in the
eh... underworld. I could give you beautiful
servants to cater
whim! Bring you food,
listen to your every word
be adoring lovers. You would be
(Arsonella is unimpressed by the offer.)
ARSONELLA: I’m already a Queen and I’m plenty
satisfied in bed, let me tell ya.
THIERRY: But you’re not
to tell me.
ARSONELLA: Nope. If even you
can’t do it,
this job’s gotta
be worth a lot.
(Thierry's offers are now visually depicted by Claude in different situations.
Here he wears sunglasses and drives a sporty convertible.)
THIERRY: A cool car?
ARSONELLA: Not after the accident!
(Here Claude stalks the night with an apron, meat cleaver, and sports mask.)
THIERRY: Need any revenge?
ARSONELLA: We take care of that ourselves.
(Claude looks mighty viewed from a low angle, holding aloft a bag of treasure labeled "PHAT LOOT" as it gleams with rays of light.)
THIERRY: Uhhh a big bag
of gold coins?
(They seem close to a deal and Allison close to finished with her own project. The last item of negotiation is depicted as Claude in an
unrealistically sexy maid outfit, looking coquettishly back at us looking up his skirt. Truly, readers, we are lawless bounders.)
ARSONELLA: Send a cute girl
to clean my house,
and it’s a deal!
THIERRY: How cute are we talking?
PANEL WORDS: SO CUTE
(The price agreed to, they discuss the service to be rendered.)
ARSONELLA: Alright, so who do you
want me to find?
THIERRY: Do you know this name
(Allison hands Arsonella a piece of paper.)
ALLISON: This should
You drew this?
(We see the paper and Allison's depiction of Minchin. She has mad teenage art skills. Check out those abs!)
ALLISON: Yes I did.
ARSONELLA: I like the linework!
