"Gee, that sounds familiar"

Looks to me like somebody is about to start eating his foot.

Even though the body count is zero, this is still one of the scariest horror comics I've ever read!

What? Spending a day with your mother-in-law doesn't count as horror? :P

@LESimmons: It does. Probably the biggest horror story never told.

As much as Peter is right, it does not look like Ally appreciates it at the moment... for that matter, Sheila, "Subtle" is not in your dictionary, is it? ;-)

Oddly enough my in-laws and I got along fine... and still do for that matter... just my ex- and I do not.

Still gotta have the exception to prove the rule, I suppose.

Just as a FYI, Peter's comment in the last panel is directed at Calpurnia, not Ally. He's pointing out the hypocrisy of Cal's disapproving of Ally's "nitpicking" over Artemis while she herself does nothing but complain about Peter.

To Cal, there is no hypocrisy. As an Enchanter, Artemis was the perfect spouse for Ally, probably from a prominent family that could raise Ally's, and by extension Calpurnia's, social standing (lest you think love have anything to do with it) whereas as a mortal, Peter is a plebian clod who has no business being with Ally.

Calpurnia has probably overheard all sorts of nasty comments from her "friends" at social gatherings about this, and in turn takes it out on Peter.
