TOM THE DANCING BUG: Billy Dare - Get that McGuffin!

TOM THE DANCING BUG: In which the plot is rocketed forward when Billy Dare discovers he simply must obtain a McGuffin! I'm lovin' it!

  1. I wish TinTin and Snowy were on the case instead of those two phony’s. Great Snakes that would be action.

    1. Interesting.  I’ve seen this within a decade, like XL (40), IV (4) or IX (9), never saw it spanning more than one decade.
      So V is 5,000 and to that we add ILXVI, parsing 49 + 16 (XVI) for 65?  Why not just LXV?  Still puzzled.

      1. It’s a little hard to make out here, but the bar is supposed to cover both the V and I. You can see this a bit clearer in the last episode here, Into the Uncanny Valley.

        So it’s not out of place and no unusual rules are required. The chapter here is VI x 1000 + LXVI = 6066, and the previous one was 6070. I assume the chapters between are reserved for the inner hive.

  2. It’s an “Auntie Anne’s Pretzels.” It’s a chain of stores; so the awkward construction would be like saying “in a ‘Heron Foods.'”
