[Comic for Wednesday, February 4, 2015]


[[Trudy and Esther continue their discussion in Esther's camp. Trudy is still dripping goo from the tunnels below.]]
Trudy: [aside] "Beware the Colonel and the Key Master..."
Esther: Where the heck did you hear THAT?

Trudy: A warning given to a ... friend. Does the name "Moldfinger" ring a bell?
Esther: More like an ominous gong...

Esther: [resigned] Yes, I was "The Key Master." That was Lionel's pet code name for me. I hated it, but he insisted. He just loves playing the spy. Given my preferences for aliases, however, I suppose it fit.

Trudy: Lionel?
Esther: [sadly, eyes squeezed shut] Colonel Lionel Mortimer Barker, U.S. Army and about a dozen covert acronyms.
