I am amazed at your ability to track this down. The nose size is a bit different, but could very well be.

I am much more amazed at your memory. I literally just read that comic only a week or so ago (got sucked into an archive dive) and did not put it together. I'm impressed!

I'm calling Quint's daughter as the nice looking lady who Kiki saw on the pergament.
Maybe these predictions don't contradict.

Im further predicting the rise of Rome to be connected to some of Quint's doings.

I'm calling the side-story of how Kiki made a new friend.

This speculation fits since:
  • Dunuloa was the one experimenting with bringing mummies back to life and her first experiment was used to guard ancient "treasures" associated with her family;
  • Quint (and presumably Allie) are followers of Dunuloa;
  • the "book" she popped out of was labeled with a "B" that is, at the least, now associated with Quint - and likely Dunuloa; and
  • the mummy spoke Latin.

In this context, she is merely guarding the Book as a whole - without knowing what our gang was actually there to accomplish.

The argument against this speculation - or at least in favor of the speculation being incomplete - is that Farahn summoned her. And Dunuloa was definitely no friend of Farahn's.

Regardless of the presence of morons, is it such a good idea for Quint and Allie to be discussing the formation of the Book of Eville in front of Ozzid - whether or not he is one of K'Z'K's demons?

Something weird is going on with Allie's pupils. They look like little PacMen. Quint's pupils became kind of horseshoe like when Ozzid was possessing him. I wonder if that's a hint that Allie is already possessed...

The mummy speaking Latin is not such a big thing. At least she was guarding something in a Roman town.
Allie is able to speak Latin but her mother tongue is still Etruscan...

I speculate that "Quintus Liberliganus" means "Quint, the book-binder".

"Quint" sounds just like how "Quintus" would get bastardised into English from Latin. I even thought that without noticing it was in the title earlier. Alternatively, don't some names getting bastardised into Latin get that ending?

"Liber" means book.

"Liganus"... well, ligaments bind joints together, right?

I'm still bad enough at Latin that this counts as speculation.

I cannot help but feel that Allie looks so much like Zoe's sister. Could Zoe be a descendent of Allie through her father?

I think it's far enough in the past for Allie to be the ancestor of many people of Eurasia. If she ever got children of her own.
