When I originally outlined this arc, Zoey and Lizzy were just out somewhere. I have no real idea where Zoey was, but she came back at this time.
I did think maybe she was visiting her folks or something… There’s a Zoey arc that takes place this Summer that she’ll need to see her folks for. But that’s later.
Oh, neat little thing– Well I think it’s neat, but I’m a giant dork… The octopus-faced guy in panel two wears eight rings. Eight is an important number for these guys for obvious reasons.
