Those shoes are on fyre
Wasn’t that part of the Septimus Heap series?
The one where all the I’s were replaced with Y’s and bolded in this weird font to make it appear “magic-y”? It’s actually a decent series to read if you’re bored.
The ‘Darkenesse’ was such a coollame word.
And I don’t recall Fyre being one of the books, maybe you’re thinking of Flyte?
Both were in the series.
Yeah, Flyte was the book and the flying spell, Fyre was just mentioned in the series. Like the dragon was named Spitfyre or something.
Flyte is the second book. Fyre is the seventh (and final). It is also the magykal (forgive me, I just retread the series) version of standard fire, capable of destroying any substance/object, even those which would normally be indestructible.
Someone hasn’t played Sonic Adventure 2, Amazigirl is part Hedgehog!
“Ratchett and Clank” and “Psychonauts” both have
“grind rail” levels.
Save that for when she trips and falls on her face.
Try that again, with more capitalization in the last word.
I know I’m late to the party, but I’ve taken the last few days to read myself up to here.
Now are you-all satisfied that Amber is/was Amazi-girl — at least here in the DoA strip? It was obvious from her very first appearance that Amber was the only person it even *COULD* be!
Amber stop running from your problems. Because when you run from your problems, you often also end up running from help.
When you run from your problems you run from your solutions.
Unless you’re trying the Rincewind method of problem solving: First, run away from your problems. Then, when you run into more problems you run away from them too. And so on.
Rincewind’s methods of problem solving are almost always inferior to other alternatives. Always follow them.
When you run from your troubles, you just get tired faster. Your troubles have plenty of stamina to keep up.
This is perhaps the best way of saying it I’ve ever heard.
When you run from your solutions you also run from your precipitates.
what if your problem is a hungry bear?
Bears run faster than you can.
But can the guy next to you?
Only if the guy is a horse.
I don’t have to outrun the bear.
I only have to outrun YOU.
Bears run slower downhill, or so I’ve heard.
She’s not [I]running[/I] from them, she’s epically sliding away from them. Totally different.
You need to use the ‘less than’/’greater than’ signs not [ and ].
Thanks for the tip.

Excellent rail grind. I give her +100 style points!
Is it enough to do a Special Move with, though?
I thought she was worried that her secret superhero identity will be found out if she doesn’t get out of there.
I’m going to associate it with panic, because taking off the mask is a lot easier than going all Sonic the Hedgehog on that rail.
That and that Amber isn’t exactly in charge of her body at the moment.
(This is my Tuxedo Mask theory)
As I’ve said, that’s not entirely false – when you get hopped up on adrenalin, some bizarre stuff goes down.
Amber’s not here right now. /singsong voice
(No really, go look at the tags. It’s “Amazi-girl” and “Ruth” and that’s it.)
Nah, she doesn’t share her problems with anyone. She’s worried about having to face her feelings…and possibly the reality that she has hate, anger, and spite within her…and that she cannot forgive and forget about whatever her father has done to make her feel that way toward him. Also, she’s crying…she probably doesn’t want to show weakness, either. I don’t think the fact that it’s Ruthless would really matter; maybe I’m projecting at this point, but she probably doesn’t realize that it’s normal to be fucked up inside and that no one has everything under control. And so showing a stranger that she is that way would be horrible.
Really, though, no one else runs away from people when they’re crying? Just last year or so I was going to try and find a friend to talk to, but I realized that I was freaking out a bit, so I stopped and cried first and didn’t mention it at all. Of course, she was in a semi-public place, but it was mostly that I didn’t really want to be all, “ASDBFAHFBVEW:LHF I’M CRYING HALP,” to her. I thought I was overreacting to the situation I was in, I guess, which is another way to state what I said about Amber not accepting her feelings. It’s strange that irrational overreaction is completely normal, and that people are totally inconsistent in how they deal with things, especially depending on their levels of stress and anxiety at the time.
Sometimes, you just have to punch your problems in the face…other times, vigilantism works too.
And as we all know, vigilantism often uses face-punching to do its work.
Sometimes, it’s a boot to the head.
Or an arrow to the knee quickly followed with a knee to the balls.
And a bullet to the face, if we’re feeling anti-heroish today.
Of course, if you are lacking a bullet (or anything to launch it with), a face against any convenient hard surface is an acceptable substitute.
Does a fist count as a hard surface?
Only if the fist is made of steel.
Though if you are going to run, parkouring down a staircase is the coolest way to do it…
But when you grind from your problems, you also end up being cool.
Alright, but I’m going to make twice as many femur jokes to make up for it.
I’ll draw twice as much fanservice.
Two times infinity isn’t even a thing.
2∞ = ∞
8 + tequila = ∞.
And since 8 is a finite value, I must therefore conclude that tequila = ∞.
And since tequila is infinite, and the universe is infinite, the universe is tequila via the transitive property.
Therefore, I don’t have a drinking problem. I have a reality problem.
GET THE BIMBRIDGE SCHOLARS OVER HERE NOW!
If that’s the case, then would vodka be equal to Pi?
Mmm… vodka pie…
This is the greatest thing I’ve ever read.
I… I think I love you a little bit. That was beautiful.
But reality is finite, therefore tequila isn’t real. If tequila is the universe and tequila isn’t real, then the universe isn’t real. Because the universe isn’t real it must be a concept. If the universe is a concept and the universe is tequila, then tequila is just a concept. If tequila is just a concept, then I’m not an alcoholic, I am a philosopher.
So i*∞ ?
This thread makes me so happy. Internets for everyone!
Actually you have a money problem because Tequila may be infinite, but it is not free.
But .. that’s not how you count tequila!
One tequila, two tequila, three tequila, floor!
Just because you say something is canonical doesn’t make it canonical. I REJECT YOUR CANON AND SUBSTITUTE MY OWN.

Stop with the Freddy references…especially that song. It puts Shaun of the Dead in my head!
The first thing I thought of when I saw that panel were the rail-sliding 2P stages in Sonic Adventure 2.
Damn, I didn’t know she could do THAT.
She is the Amazin-Girl. Of course she can do that!
Wouldn’t it be amazing if we were all pushed to become superheroes and gain amazing moves by our emotional trauma? Instead of gaining, you know, crippling neuroses?
Isn’t that pretty much The Hulk?
Why not both?
Wait, that is practically half of all superheroes.
LET’S DO THIS. I grew up poor, soooo… *goes all “Robin Hood” on some rich people* Childhood trauma fixed!
Well, I mean the superpowers are crippling neuroses more often than not. So I guess we’re halfway there.
Isn’t that Sal?
It seems that swinging oneself over a stairway rail and then sliding down the banister is much more straightforward than ripping a mask off and stuffing it in your pocket.
Of course, Amber may just want to be alone right now.
Why are all of Willis’s characters so damn cute when they look just a little sad?
Maybe you secretly find sad people adorable?
I can’t help it…every time I see crying people, I just wanted to give them a hug.
Well, either that or I want to laugh at them. It depends.
I only laugh at people’s misery if they are the people I hate. It’s calming.
You know, I don’t think most people really mean it when they say “hate”. You’re usually just really mad at them
Typically not. “Hate” is just convenient and easy on the tongue.
A lot of parents would not want you hugging their kids. But that’s because they can only see your name. I mean for all we know, that van is a Tardis. Maybe you’re actually a cancerous Lincoln probe with phosphorescent lighting that has a lower carbon footprint by 25% off if you call right now or later cuz I might be busy doing important visiting politicians should get our full attention deficit of 100 million double dollars off at the megamart on Monday night football players at the bar order you drinks it all up in the air reserves are sent off in times new roman empires fall to your banana Republican Party line to the roller coaster to avoid random encounters.
When I see people who are sad, my first impulse is to hug them, but I guess that’s “creepy,” and I should “put some clothes on.”
Same here. In fact, I prefer them that way. That makes me sound incredibly predatory, but…
… wait, I don’t actually have a defense that makes that seem less horrible. Well, I *prefer* it, but I don’t actively seek it or take *advantage* of it.
It’s because they’re cartoons.
I like how even though she is being bad ass with the railing you can see tears flying from under her mask too. Speaks well of the situation, that it does.
I just realized that Amber’s jacket is somewhat reminiscent of her cape.
Quick Amber! 30 seconds of Hardcore Parkour!
Are you kidding? There’s gotta be like 200 steps!
AMAZI-GIRL HAS NO TIME FOR STAIRS!
but only 6 rails.
Well if you don’t think you can do it…
Oh, Amber, sweetie.
I CALLED IT
I MOTHERF*CKING CALLED IT
Where does she go to learn/practice this stuff?!
Or Mirror’s Edge.
If it’s from AC, she’s going to be info a nasty shock when she learns that not every tall building has a convenient haystack next to it. And even if it does, that will do nothing to save you from a fall of several hundred feet.
I guess she learned from the Law and Order Monks there.
Not to be confused with the Shangri-llama.
Or the angry llama.
It looks like Amber is taking a slip in the second panel.
Willis this is like telling us not to think about elephants.
If sliding on rails was an Olympic sport, she’d take the gold.
Now she just needs to get some soap shoes.
And then I looked at your username.
Although i want to give Amber a good hard shaking back and forth angrily for running from Ruth, i have to admit the railslide was pretty badass.
Plus, hearing Ruth (almost) refer to herself as Ruthless is pretty entertsining.
*entertaining. For god’s sake autocorrect, gimme a break for once.
“The mask… put it on, is gonna make you strong”
Power’s all in the costume! Why else would we run around in colored undies?
Her costume allows her immunity to criticism.
And the ability to shred serious rails.
There are two types of superheroes.
Those who have to wear a ridiculous costume, and those who get to wear a ridiculous costume.
While it’s sad that she’s not taking Ruth’s extended hand, lemme just note how fucking badass Amber looks sliding down that rail. Like, fuck yeah Amazi-Girl.
Or at least, sort of fuck yeah. Fuck yeah to the parts that aren’t horribly emotionally crippling?
Willis, your hidden text has far to much faith in us as human beings. Just FYI.
Pffft. I trust in my plug-ins.
Well I can’t even read the hovertext, so that makes me immune to your powers, Wills!
God I need a new PC.
I still think she’s batman.
I was going to say “Silly Willis, nobody can actually tell their fandom what they want and have them actually follow through on it!”
But you actually have plug-ins set up to delete /Ultra-Car comments from now on? Or am I just thinking you’re a wizard?
HE’S A WIZARD!
Yesssss, put your faith in machines.
Thank you for that alt-text, my good sir. When the horse-owner tells you to stop beating the horse, you know a joke has gone way past its time.
I think the first person to tell you to stop beating the horse is the owner.
I’m pretty sure the horse usually has something to say about it first. Most people just don’t realize it because they don’t speak horse.
“Don’t worry! The cries of pain mean he’s enjoying it!”
Now we just need to get Shortpacked commenters to stop calling Ken by every other Street Fighter character name and life will be perfect.
Hey, Robin started it.
that one doesn’t bother me as much, because at least people just use the wrong name and keep talking about the strip and character. with the ‘sal is amazigirl’ shit we couldn’t even discuss amber in the context of her being a superhero without it being immediately derailed.
That makes Ruth Knuckles.
and Dina Tails
And Blaine Robotnik.
Danny is of course, Amy.
Sal is Shadow, Walky is Big, Joyce is Cream…
Does that make Beef E-123 Omega?
GAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!! Shadow the Hedgehog….how I hate that Mary Sue.
I’m afraid to ask who is Rouge… probably Roz.
Looks like a few comments didn’t get the hint mentioned in the HOVERTEXT and got Orwellian Edited out of existance.
Wait… AMBER is AMAZI-GIRL?
Where were you yesterday?
Am I the only one that thinks Amber may have actually found a productive way to channel her rage? There is, after all, such a thing as a righteous rage.
Incidentally, have you all ever noticed how badly screwed up the Jedi from Luca’s Star Wars were in this respect? I wonder if even Lucas himself realizes the unwitting moral lesson from those stories.
Here you have the Jedi, who are basically a bunch of detached warrior-priests, who eschew and deny any emotional connections. They don’t marry, they don’t have families, they cultivate this whole calm detachment thing, claiming it gives them strength.
Set against them are the Sith, who believe that anger, hate and rage give them strength.
Now, the whole story takes place around a prophecy, that one man will arise and bring balance between the light and dark sides of the Schw… er, the Force. In effect, he will bridge the gap between Jedi and Sith. In the (godawful, cheesy) prequels, we are led to believe that the child of prophecy is Anakin Skywalker – it isn’t, of course.
It’s Luke. And how did Luke achieve this balance?
He ignored Obi-Wan and Yoda, who were still preaching the tired old Jedi detachment crap at him. He followed his better instincts, but – and this is the important bit – he only found strength to beat Vader when he channeled a righteous rage out of filial love for his sister.
Vader, also, finally found redemption when he turned on the Emperor – his master – out of paternal love for his son.
The Jedi had it wrong all along. Luke only won when he ignored them.
Now here we have Amber, who never had the calm detachment of a Jedi, but has found a way to channel her rage and make it work for something positive: Punching bad guys in the face.
Yep. Because she is clearly the one who decides who gets punched in the face. The people who deserve it. The bad guys, the criminals, the thieves, the bullies, the people she doesn’t like, the person who burned the roast, the person who won’t listen to her authority…
I am so damn TIRED of you defending roast-burners, Yotomoe! I say it’s HIGH TIME we make those roast-burners suffer for their sins of ruining dinner by paying unto kind! WE SHALL TOSS THEM IN MY HUMAN-SIZED (serves 8!) CROCK POT AND LET THEM KNOW THE EXTENT OF THE FOLLY!
What if I told you that…
I AM A ROAST BURNER.
Then won’t you come over? I’d love to have you stop by for… dinner.
I always figured that Anakin did indeed bring balance to the Force.
First, he eliminated the hidebound Jedi, whose crippling emotional detachment left them unable to relate to, and help solve the problems of, the people of the galaxy.
Next, he eliminated the Sith – that is to say, first the Emperor, then himself. This took out the faction whose crippling emotional dependence left them unable to resist the temptation to rule with an iron fist – for everyone’s own good, of course.
And in the end, he left his son, a powerful Force-user who grew up separated from both the Jedi and Sith philosophies until he was grown up enough to make choices. Luke is now able to forge a future for the Force that is free of both extremes, of detachment from and surrender to the passions.
So you see, Anakin did indeed restore balance to the Force, in a way that nobody on either side could possibly foresee…
I’ve always enjoyed the “Anakin brought balance to the Force by killing everyone involved on both sides” line of thought. It lends this air of…. something… to the prophesy.
Well, he didn’t touch the Sith, but that’s mainly because they conveniently decided to genocide themselves awhile ago (Rule of Two and all that).
He killed both Dooku and Palpatine and also maybe that evil gray lady from the Clone Wars cartoons, I can’t remember?
Asajj Ventress? Actually she is somehow alive.
GREAT JOB ANAKIN
“How the hell can we call you the chosen if you can’t even pull off a proper genocide? Tsk.”
If he wouldn’t have panicked about Padme, she would have lived. And Ventress sort of becomes a good guy…or at doesn’t really bother anyone after a while.
She wasn’t really a Sith though, so it’s cool.
you had ONE JOB!
Who are those people? O_o And the Clone Wars? You mean the one that Obi-Wan referred to in IV but was NEVER EVER EXPANDED UPON? o_<
You mean, “the one that Obi-Wan referred to in ‘Star Wars’….” >_o
Almost a “Monkey’s Paw” kind of air, I think.
Except when Anakin was finished – the Emperor dead by his hand, he dead and redeemed himself – by the movies, there are no Dark Side users left, and a new Jedi order forming.
And by the expanded universe, he hardly made a dent in either.
Even in the Expanded Universe he made a dent on the Jedi.
Sure he missed some Jedi but the order pretty much had to be reformed by luke, who scoured the galaxy for surviving information on the Order.
The sith… Well he wiped out what we knew; there was still Lumiya, and the Lost Tribe, Verjere, and any fallen new order Jedi
Agree. I don’t understand why people do find Anikin a sympathetic character. My only real problem is that he eventually betrayed and overthrew his boss. That’s just being a dick.
How could she gain that much speed from such a short drop and turn? Does she have super momentum?
She’s holding the B button.
And making sure she’s keeping balance by tilting the analog stick the right way!
I often meditate on what Amazi-girl might do with an analog stick.
Science likes big butts….
Specifically gravity like big butts. That’s where the whole low center of gravity comes from.
I like big butts and I can also lie.
It’s adorable that he thinks that half the people will ever let go of a joke.

Something tells me it’s time to get off the interweb early, for tonight.
It doesn’t matter. He’ll just silence those who disobey.
I’m sorry, citizen, but the mentioning of Amazi-Girl’s alleged identity is considered treason. Please proceed immediately to the nearest termination booth. Have a nice daycycle!
Why that’s just silly! Everyone knows that there is no secret identity to Amazi-Girl, and any rumors to the contrary are spread only by commie mutant traitors who wish to destroy our way of life!
I’m so glad I have blue security clearance.
I’m sorry, citizen, but revealing your security clearance to citizens not of your security clearance is a violation of security procedures, and is considered treason. Please report to your local Happy Funtimes Playland and Termination Center for debriefing. The Computer is your friend!
Always wear the mask.
AMBER CONFIRMED FOR TONY HAWK UNDERGROUND 3.
AMBER CONFIRMED FOR SUPER SMASH BROS 4
Don’t tempt me…Nintendo already tempt with Megaman in SSB4.
AMBER CONFIRMED FOR SONIC ADVENTURE 3
I really want a game that mixes Tony Hawk and Mirror’s Edge. That would be AMAZING
Wow, that Girl is pretty Amazing!
Masked Amber is Badass Amber.
Yeah, I spent several minutes wondering how it was raining on Amber in the fourth panel. Then I stopped being stupid for a brief moment.
If I have to rate Amber’s exit, I’d give her a 9.
If we’re suddenly declaring jokes dead, Mr. Willis, can we get an official end to “FAAAAACE” jokes?
Why? FAAAACE jokes are …….somewhat funny.
Aizat, I have some bad news…
He’s the father, isn’t he? Dammit, Aizat, I told you to just use the damn condom!
Wait, who did I screw last night?
I wonder how many points she’s getting for that badass slide?
In a scale of 1-10, 9.
According to Sonic Colors, 3000 points per second, after a two second count.
MUST KEEP SECRET IDENTITY SECRET.
(Also, it’s good that a joke that outstayed its welcome got shut down.)
Oh, how cute, you think those jokes will ever stop.
Time for a quick change. (Probably not, but still…)
That’s 3 for 3 with the Mask of the Phantasm theme.
It’s Amazi-Girl’s new leitmotif. Amazi-Girl kicking ass? Mask of the Phantasm theme. Amazi-Girl having a moment of broodiness? Mask of the Phantasm theme. Amazi-Girl shopping for groceries? Mask of the Phantasm theme.
Yay for the alt-text! And for what it says!
why can’t we just follow the jamie hyneman method and just go “when in doubt….c4″
it would be way faster and actually RELIEVE stress while removing the problems!
Rincewind ran away from everything, which usually landed him in hotter water than what he was trying to get out of in the first place, and finalized with him reluctantly saving the City, State, World or whatever was currently in danger in the Diskworld at the time.
Amber maybe should’ve talked to Ruth who genuinely wanted to help, but how was Amber to know that, even Ruth just showed us that she
knows her own rep. in with the kids.
Great exit Amber. I hope you find someone to talk to who will listen.
And where is Blaine at this moment in time?
Actually, she should have just saved discworld, thus solving Rincewind’s problems.
And then Rincewind could hit Blaine with a half-brick in a sock, thus solving Amber’s problems?
I’m glad you’re telling people to stop with the Amazi-Girl identity jokes. I was tired of them after the first three Amazi-Girl strips. Come to think of it, while I enjoy a lot of internet memes, I rarely enjoy any of the memes specific to your comic(s), Willis. Weird. The “for a nickle” one is probably the best.
I predict a Mike appearance sometime in the near future…
It seems like The Willis regrets ever making that joke in the first place! *trollsmirk*
But no matter. I have seen the error of my ways, and realized that Amber is actually Leonardo.
Rollin’ around at the speed of sound
Got places to go, gotta follow my rainbow!
Áh dammit. She ran. Not good.
But did Ruthless see her with the mask on?
Sad and Badass at the same time. Wow!
Panel 4 is just awesome.
So where is Amazi-Girl? I can see her tag, but I can’t see her in the comic?
That’s how super ninja she is.
She know she doesn’t have to run.
That’s why she’s sliding.
Let’s hope she doesn’t accelerate too fast and disintegrate into coins at the bottom.
Also… “Ms” rather than “Miss” Lessick?
Is she, like, common-law-gay-married to Billie now, then?
Miss and Ms are interminable. You’re thinking Mrs.
You have exactly the opposite idea of what “Ms” means. It was coined as an honorific that was completely independent of marital status. Men were “Mr.” whether they were married or not; women were “Miss” before marriage, “Mrs.” after.
“Ms” was coined (surprisingly in 1901 it looks like, but it became popular in the 70s) to allow women to be addressed without concern over whether they had a spouse. It has absolutely nothing to do with common-law-gay-marriage to Billie.
I vote for the common-law-gay-marriage to Billie anyway.
Also also, I really wanna know what’s written on her shirt. I just can’t quite make it out, even after stepping back about thirty strips to the point where she’s dressed in yellow instead.
Also also also… FAZ IS STILL IN HER ROOM WITH DINA. OH GOD.
Let’s hope Mr S is secretly a judo master.
Yeah. I’ve been more worried about Dina with Faz than Amber with Blaine. Amber can take care of herself, at least physically. I’m not sure about Dina, and her parents don’t seem like great backup.
maybe, but then faz has never shown himself to be the type to really force himself on anyone so much as stand near them being unbearably creepy. So she’s probably highly uncomfortable but also not in any danger
“My school, I can not deny her. My school screams. She is my mother. She is my lover, and I am her Spirit.”
*starts drinking Linkara-style* That…movie.
*drinks some Secret Bourbon*
Rolling around at the speed of sound.
“If you need to talk, just kick my door down.”
So then, Amber runs into Danny and his parents, and Danny realises that Amber is Amazi-girl.
It’s adorable you think Danny will ever find out.
Perhaps the next step is having Danny find out. If Willis thinks the joke he’d like to have stop today got old (and was probably tired of it when he originally wrote this storyline) then perhaps he’s also tired of Danny’s denseness regarding Amber/Amazi-Girl too and will resolve that one soon.
Why is Amber dressed like Amazigirl? I thought Sal was Amazigirl…
read the hovertext, we have overthrown the meme
I’m sure this has been discussed, but why was Ruth’s name changed from Lesse to Lessick?
Probably for realism. If your last name is Lesse, you don’t name your daughter Ruth unless you want her to be known as “Ruthless”. If your last name is Lessick, OTOH, the pun could be unintentional.
Then again, parents can be pretty ignorant of that kind of thing. Like that one stupid parent who decided to name his kid “Deejay” or something. >.>
So she flees Ruth and leaves the ” safety” of the stairwell and goes outside where Blaine is looking for her. No, this was not a wise choice.
OTOH, the drama tag has certainly been pulled.
As Amazi-girl, she might be looking for Blaine, not the other way around. Which is almost scarier.
THERE IS NO AMBER, ONLY ZUUL.
Ha! The drama tagged has been pulled, pressed, punched and twisted to the point that it just wants to be pulled out of its misery.
Or a hug.
We shall NEVER stop making those jokes, Willis!
(I never did those anyway, but it’s the principle of the matter.)
I don’t understand why we would stop making those jokes, let alone *now*. What does anything in this story or on this page have to do with not making those jokes anymore?
They will continue to be made. Forever.
Then I hope everyone’s happy with them being immediately deleted.
…and my axe!
As a compromise, can we still, provided it comes up in conversation normally, assert that we definitely did not know who Amazi-Girl was before yesterday?
Also, by the way, the older strip back in April with the flashback to the robbery wasn’t tagged with Amber. So we’re left to assume that the character pictured is actually Amber/Amazi-girl’s twin sister who you haven’t named yet.
> provided it comes up in conversation normally,
That reminds me of the time I had sex with Eartha Kitt in an airplane bathroom.
yes yes yes thank you we can finally discuss amber being amazi-girl and what that means etc.
I don’t even know the jokes of which you speak, and now it’s too late. Oh horrible, over-used, and probably insensitive joke! What could have been, if only I’d known sooner??
When did Amber learned to Parkour like that? How long did she train before she managed to be that good? Surely 2 months of summer vacation isn’t enough to as a ramp like that.
She did track and field in high school.
How did Amber get so amazingly agile?
Track and field.
Now I feel really bad for Ruth.
Your name (and gravatar) are extremely unfitting to your comment, its gotta be said.
I’m drunk, that’s all.
End of the idendity jokes? It’s about frakkin’ gorram time.
Ok… I know Amber shouldn’t be running from her problems… but I see her sliding down the bannister like that, and the only thought in my mind is “Damn… Amber’s bad-ass!”
I like how Ruth just watches Amber shred those rails like it’s no big deal.
I assumed that Ruth couldn’t see Amber- like the stairs curved.
Yeah, looks like it’s one of those stairwells that switches back every half-flight, and Amazi-Girl’s first move was to vault the railing down to the lower switchback (and sliding down the rail is impressive enough; sticking the landing on it after going over the rail a half-story up… girl’s got skills), so the upper switchback is probably hiding her from Ruth.
Can probably hear her pretty well, though.
Hey, I didn’t know [REDACTED] could parkour like that!
Looks like both Amber and Ruth could use the wuvmuffin of happiness.
Say, how come Ruth was introducing herself as Ruthless?
She worked hard for that nickname and reputation. It just wasn’t appropriate in this case.
Oh snap, is she wearing Soaps?
So Amber was Amazi-girl the WHOLE TIME?
A twist of M. Night Shyamalan proportions.
You can’t tell from this angle, but she’s actually sliding *up* those stairs.
Friggin’ Escher Prints.
good thing amber had those special tires fitted as part of her disguise or else that might have hurt.
also, we have finaly driven Willis to put the name of one of his own characters on the list of words we’re not allowed to say.
I believe this calls for a toast, ladies and gentlemen
Glad to see that mention of a certain sentient automobile was sufficient to have an actual question deleted, so again, I’ll ask:
Are we actually going to see said character in Dumbing of Age? Even if it’s something like how HA and Monkey Master are included?
Fourth panel: The banister rail is lubricated by her tears.
