Miss Mary dear, Time turns us all into different people in the end.

I like the drawing and pace of this page. And no, not just because of the nudity. I do think its weird she's hung up about this. Even if she's not just referring to herself. If that ideal was strayed from its because it wasn't logical or practical. There's probably more to this, though, that will be seen.

Yeah, I'm kinda lost still from the last panel yesterday and this page.
Is she upset that Rufus got through to Miwa? Or perhaps, despite Miwa's way of "helping" Mary deal with her own problems, Miwa was the one who needed help most of all and Mary hasn't come to terms with everything herself yet?

I think she's referring to herself or Jim, since they both were on the anarchy path when there was a government. Like I said, I'm not sure why she's hung up on things like this /now/ but I'm sure there is more to come. View seems to like cold openings. Even though this isn't an opening...cold transition? Should make sense soon though.

Wow, you guys, did you forget that many of her friends just died a day or two ago?

Whatever. I was going to make it clear tomorrow anyway.
JasperWB 5th Jul 2012, 10:27 PM edit delete reply
But what does anarchy have to do with that? That's what threw me a curve. She believes an anarchist shouldn't care about mass deaths? Maybe she used to not care when people were getting melted all over the place and there was relative chaos? I would understand that. Like her brothers death changed everything and now she has a larger grip on death and losing people.

I guess if I used my brain I could have figured things out...

She was so much older then...
She's younger than that now!*

*(Apologies to Mr. Dylan)

Ahh that's right. She was one of the Anarchists back in the day. I was remembering the Anarchist tattoo that Rufus has so I thought she was referring to him and Miwa.

I'll just keep my pondering to myself until it's cleared up in future pages from now on.

Ah. His tattoo says "anachronist".

Come on guys, did you really forget what happened? Some of the octopi died during the outbreak. She is still hung up and sad over losing her friends. Her comment on this page isn't some deep meaning or comment at Miwa. It's just about herself and her feelings. If you saw her in the past, she was a very strong woman. She stood up against the government after all. What she says here is simply a jab at herself and how she went to 'strong anarchist' to this. Some anarchist crying and being hung up over the death of her friends.

Not just some, all of the octopi died.

I don't necessarily think Mary was a strong anarchist back in the day; it seemed to me like she was just along for the ride since her brother was in the group. I think that while she played a part, it was possibly drawing cues from those around her rather than being "it" in her own right.

@ view: Her children actually... And, No.

I'm with the others. My response to this page was "Huh?" I get that all the calamari died, and that this saddens her, but what does anarchy got to do with it?

Reread Pages 196-209 and see if you think Mary-then would have reacted to this loss and disaster in the same way Mary-now has.
Time and situation changes everyone.
