"The Unveiling of the Stranger"... well, if that isn't a very promise-ful title of a chapter...

Wow, so the Stranger is apparently tired of coming up with excuses or whatever - he's just laying it all out. A bit silly of him, but whatever. And hah! It was a fake nose. And all false hair, as well. So, yeah, there's that.

Well, so the Invisible Man isn't the type to "come quietly"... although this shouldn't surprise anyone who read the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen...

An amusing short little chapter with the "naturalist"... though you'd think someone Invisible would try to be a liiiittle more quiet, neh?

"Embonpoint" is such a nicer word for, well... a tendency to be overweight. It's a pity it went out of style.

"Just my promiscuous luck"... I wonder what he was trying to say? Or if that had a different sense in the day than it does now?

The Invisible Man surely has an... interesting way of getting his point across to Mr. Marvel.

Yugh... digesting food. Ick.

"An invisible man is a man of power..." *achoo*! Yes, very eloquent. :p

Awww, he has a helper now. Every mad scientist needs an assistant! It's all right and proper.


And on Monday we cover Chapters 10-12. Be there or be a four-sided thing.

It's very interesting to see casual glimpses of a vanished world. Whit Monday stopped being a bank holiday in the 1960s (70s in Ireland), and I don't think anyone observes it as a holiday in the UK today.

Hmmm..Tom Marvel...I wonder if J.K. Rowling was referring to him, or if it was just a coincidence.

Good point... I'm tending toward coincidence, but it's hard to be 100% sure.
