Veni, vidi, wiki (I came, I saw, I edited).

Higgs, Rakethorn?, Zeetha, Agatha, Violetta, Krosp. This goes against our earlier conclusion that Krosp was being separated from Agatha. The absence of Tweedle, Seffie, and Rita from the dock doesn't prove that they're on the Europa-bound ship, but it's suggestive. This seems like the best arrangement of players that we could hope for! And it seems that all the Boyz, not just Dimo, have been sent homeward. For a panel with no words this is pretty important!

Martellus already said he's staying (plus, somebody has to run interference with Rakethorn for plot reasons). Seffie already said she's going. I'm not sure that's Higgs on the platform, he wears enough different uniforms that he could go either way, but if Dimo is leaving then it makes sense for one general to stay with the last Heterodyne heir.

Oh. I decided it was Higgs before it was colored; from the pencil it's an easier guess. But Cheyenne has colored his upper uniform blue, not white, so one of us (me or Cheyenne) is in error. Bkharvey (talk) 23:40, 7 April 2021 (UTC)
I don't think that's Higgs. If it is, he has cut off his pigtail, which seems a bit drastic, considering how long he has had it. (For the previous link, I picked the most recent page with a good view of the back of Higgs' head I could find, but you can see he still has it in his most recent, definite appearance. ) -- William Ansley (talk) 02:02, 8 April 2021 (UTC)
Oh, right, his pigtail -- I really am losing my memory. Not yet, fingers crossed, about things important to my life. Bkharvey (talk) 02:06, 8 April 2021 (UTC)
Yeah, looks like an orderly, not Higgs. So I guess the Swartzwalders are going to battle Monahan's rats. But speaking of Higgs and monsters, I'm still wondering whatever happened to Vole. ⚙Zarchne (talk) 18:05, 8 April 2021 (UTC)

PS How do all those dirigibles not bump into each other? Bkharvey (talk) 06:05, 7 April 2021 (UTC)

Not sure that's Higgs, do think that's Rakethorn. If it is Higgs, it's a disguise Rakethorn will see right thru. Can't believe Oggie and Maxim aren't there to see Dimo off, though Agatha did have to send for Dimo. Higgs is not a typical Jaegerkin so I think Oggie and Maxim are with Agatha for comedic leavening. Likely English Collision Avoidance technology in the Agathaverse. Doug Relyea (talk) 09:12, 7 April 2021 (UTC)
It doesn't matter if they bump into each other, they are soft and flexible :-) Svesjo (talk) 09:58, 7 April 2021 (UTC)
The dirigibles are actually hundreds of feet apart, but the drawing perspective (and not putting the largest in front) is interfering with the viewer interpretation. But as Svesjo said, some could easily be in contact without causing problems. DLcygnet (talk) 16:48, 7 April 2021 (UTC)
No, you do not want your dirigibles bouncing off each other. They have hard pointy bits, some spinning rapidly. -- SpareParts (talk) 17:21, 7 April 2021 (UTC)

Wonder what that is swimming next to the Battleship-looking vessel likely to be Agatha & party's next conveyance. Doug Relyea (talk) 09:15, 7 April 2021 (UTC)

Any guesses as to the 1010A? The Angel number or the Comic? Both? Doug Relyea (talk) 16:45, 7 April 2021 (UTC)

Probably just the "ship" number. I read it as 10170A. Here's the closest match I could find. DLcygnet (talk) 17:03, 7 April 2021 (UTC)
Might be a reference to the R101, a real-life British commercial airship that crashed on its maiden voyage, pretty much ending British government efforts with the technology. --Geoduck42 (talk) 02:20, 8 April 2021 (UTC)
Either way, it's an awfully long pennant number for units that still occasionally use flags/semaphore and signal battalions (lights/mirrors/lenses) to communicate information. DLcygnet (talk) 15:49, 8 April 2021 (UTC)
