My god, the colors... <3

I didn't quite realize what was going on in Picklock at first.

Aside from our symmetrically-sympathetic friend, am I correct in thinking that we're seeing people who are all new to us?

(spoiler?)Though I'm pretty sure Mordecai's being flanked by the Savoys.

I would like to see these two have breakfast to together as everyone reading gets lost in whatever gobbledygook they're discussing.

It is most definitely the Savoys.

Perhaps Mordecai was discussing the identical twins in the picture, while the barkeep was discussing "studying roundly shapes" of the various girls. What we have here is a lack of communication. (We haven't met any "working girls" in our comic, and they must have been populous around any speakeasy. Just realized that...)

Now what I want to know is who is "the other fella" mentioned by the splifficator.

My inclination is to assume the other guy is Viktor, but possibly Wes?

Wes seems more likely as the bartender recognizes Mordecai as "One of these Mary-golds." Presumably, the other recent visitor was also from Marigold.

I wonder how much time has passed. I doubt that we're in time skip territory, but it's probably not the same day that Mordecai had the symbol carved into him.
IIRC, he looked pretty disheveled afterwards, and I don't think one car ride gives enough time for him to fix his clothes and everything.

That's an interesting point. In V2, the buildup was that Mordecai had a supremely important errand to run - he crashed the voodoo party (to his distaste), and then became the subject of Serafine's tatwork. Mordecai would have to be beyond "interested" to carry on. I think it is at least possible. Maybe it was a longish car ride? Also, I got the impression it was real personal. Note the panel with Mordecai making a face, with the background as "uuuuughhhh".
Maybe he kind of wanted the Savoys to "stay in the car"? If so why are they along at all?

Do not underestimate the powers of phantom pedantry! Aside from reorganizing strange closets and correcting the private diary entries of the grammatically inept, they will also clean up a disheveled appearance before you can say "stop cutting me with that knife".

On another note, eeee! Kicking volume 3 off with Mordecai and the Savoys, my favorite trio of mayhem and murder! That the pages are gorgeous is par for the course, but I'm really enjoying the way you're colouring and blending sepia and non-sepia, particularly the popping colouration of some details and colours (blood and red in particular), and how you're colouring scenes in the dark and scenes in the light, contrasting cold blues and greens with warm reds and yellows - nice!

(also - how long since my last post? Well. Life, y'know)

In Bearcat (And picklock if you look reeeeeeal close) you can see his shirt is still bloody, so it's definitely the same night. That means we're on the night of, what, Day 3/4?

(I've been lurking since page 6 was published in 2007 and I registered solely to point this out)
