    I imagine that last frame was accompanied by a snort as Digger picks up her resolve and puts it back on.

  2. CovenantFan says:

    And personal cost is put aside…like the groaning, complaining, stomping…

  3. TekServer says:

    Wow (again).

    I just scrolled up and down this page a few times to test this, and it is absolutely accurate: every single time I look at this scene, a shiver runs down my spine. No matter how many times, every time.

  4. Sammi says:

    I never thought the term “Digger-Mousie” could be so forceful. o_o

    I probably won’t go back and reread Digger until I catch up entirely, but this scene has me tempted to do so prematurely, just to reread Ed’s character in light of this recent arc.

  6. Tindi says:

    You know, I bet her conscience kicked her over to Ed because it knew he’d put the starch back in her spine. He’s pretty good about putting things in perspective for her. 🙂

  7. cheshta99 says:

    To me this is the most moving and powerful arc in the entire story so far.

  8. Deraekan says:

    I agree with chesta, this comic is humourous and compelling.I’m excited about reading the rest of the archive

  9. Brian says:

    I like Digger at the bottom. Surprise… sadness… resolve.

  10. larry g says:

    (reaches for tissues) Wow!

  11. Silver Guardian says:

    Having read the whole thing through, and in the least spoiler-ish way possible, I’d like to say that this is probably one of the most moving and powerful arcs in the entire story, period.

  12. Silver Guardian says:

    Also, has anyone else noticed that Ed’s word-bubble on the page overlaps the the top of the final panel, where Digger is at her most resolved? I think that may have been deliberate.

    *jumps onto the “Ursula-is-awesome” bandwagon*

  13. TekServer says:

    You’re probably right; I get the impression that Ursula is almost always deliberately awesome. Though I’m sure she has been accidentally awesome once or twice – like when she first conceived of Ed.


    BTW, in case anyone is wondering, the “shiver” effect I described here earlier still works. Every time.

  14. Rick Woods says:

    Reading through this a second time.

    Just like the first time, I get chills and tears through this arc, most strongly on this page.

  15. TekServer says:

    10 years later … yup. Still shivers.
