11/05 last panel
"because they're too unimportant to hear you voice."

I think it should be:

"because they're too unimportant to hear your voice."

11/19, panel 7
"Your mind shall fair no better."

should be

"Your mind shall fare no better."

unless the word "fair" is some sort of pun I'm missing...

Also, in Panel 6:
"I commanded you idiots to keep that ibigger idiot's..."

should be

"I commanded you idiots to keep that bigger idiot's..."

I was wondering if it was an actual typo, or just an effect of the font.

Pretty sure it is a typo. "I" is definitely a separate letter from "B"; and if you look at that font in other panels, "I" does not precede other words.

So, I think the date 1972 in this comic may be a typo:

https://archives.sluggy.com/book.php?ch ... 2021-11-22

Mostly because when the gang visited the site themselves in the present, Riff remembered this expedition clearly and was wearing a Gremlins shirt in the flashback. The movie Gremlins did not exist in 1972.

I don't think that flashback is meant to be set around the same time Willcot made that discovery. Riff learning about it might have happened years later.

Except, in that same comic with the flashback, Gwynn asks Riff if he remembers all his father's expeditions so well. And Riff's response: "This one was special. Dad came home early. And Dad was NEVER home." And then he goes on to explain that the reason his Dad came home early was because of Tombsy's death. Riff learned about this expedition almost immediately after the fact.

There might have been a time-skip between the finding of the book and the moment of Tombsy's death. Will is wearing a different hat, Kira different clothes. A hole big like that isn't dug in a single day.

"dinning" might should be "dining", unless Kira is deliberately using the long i sound.

Pete, you're doing it again! You are forgetting how to spell the name of your own character! LOL.

Note that with Ernest's first "appearance" back in July his name was spelled "Ernest," which is also how the name is normally spelled.

But since then, his name has been spelled "Earnest." In today's comic, you use both spellings in the same panel. So I almost thought that Kira's use of the misspelling was deliberate - a sign of her lack of empathy. But then Wilcott spelled it wrong in his second usage.

December 8; panel 3.
December 10; panels 2 (Kira's speech, not Wilcott's), 3, & 4.

Third frame
"Wilcott's son finally remembered abot the book"
Should be
"Wilcott's son finally remembered about the book"

The Bug says the spell is "Revenge AGAINST the Broken-Hearted." But previous mentions were "Revenge OF the Broken-Hearted."
