I too once sought the help of the Opener, but alas...not even he could get the lid off the jar of olives.

Well, she doesn't have to be a jerk about it.
I wonder how Zach will react when he finally meets a feral that DOESN'T worship him every possible moment.

Then where did you get the glass olive jar? Or the opener? Or the cabinet both are kept in?

I think she's brilliant but can't see he doesn't know what he doesn't know.

If it comes to the end of my days
I will find the Opener of ways.
As the weather drops, my resolve hardens
He can't hide, even in Babylon Gardens.
I will find him and the waster will come,
I'm not going to let him ignore Tiny Tum.
The weather freezes, chills to the bone,
but, as I began, I'll go on alone.
The weather's too harsh, too cold and too wild,
he finds me cowering and curled like a child.
He doesn't know the crime he's committed
his ignorance of his importance cannot be permitted.
I'm bringing him for Tum's tiny sake.
We start back {yawn}when I'm next awake...

It's typical for religious deities to wonder why doing nothing is a problem? :D

Actually now that I think about it that might be kinda typical. :?

Typical opener-disbeliever!

Also, Karishad, you could always smash the jar open on a countertop, or the ground, or any sold object around you. A tree trunk might also work.

I feel like Jessica is making a jab at men always asking that question like Zack did in the last panel. Or something similar to it...like 'what did I do?/what's wrong?/what do you want?' and etc. It's as if she expects him to just know the answer. That's what I'm getting from this update at least.

I think that's just the bitter cold not worn off yet.

The dead, bitter cold.
It numbs to the very core.
But I must find Him.

Please do not worry.
I'm going somewhere with this.
It's not just random.

I break through the woods.
My journey is halfway done.
I see Opener.

I cannot reach Him.
The cold is too powerful.
I have fallen down.

He brings me inside.
But He does not know my plight.
Is He all they say?

I must remind Him.
I must tell Him of the Tum.
I can't stay awake!

I must admire Jess's persistence, even though it seems to be motivated by formerly suppressed exasperation. This does raise the question though, Why was Zach outside alone where he would find her?

Remember that his bedroom window faces the woods where the followers come from. This probably isn't the first time he's had to deal with followers arriving at midnight. (It's midnight here when the comic arrives, and Jess arrived in this comic, so that counts, right?)
Besides, with his rabbit hearing he could probably hear Jess's resistance to the wind. (not to mention her off-panel cursing...) And he could probably see her coming long before she got there.
Another theory: maybe this happened to be the night he decided to stay up and catch whoever keeps "borrowing" his diary.

Zach is confused. Zach used Giga-Squee! Critical hit! It's super effective! The enemy's Internet fainted!

Is it just me or perhaps implied shadow, or is Zach's fur a slightly darker color than it was in his last clear appearences in the arc about Max's party? I thought his (at least perceived) close to off white fur color helped set him apart from the cats and dogs around him.

As for absorbs, he's cute here, but I thought he was much cuter peeking around Tiger, Marvin and the door as he entered the party, perfectly displaying his rabbitish over suspicion of new situations.

Winter coat I suspect. (I was going to say a rabbit joke, but I don't think I got hare in time for it.)

GOOD GOD. IS ZACH PINK?
Seeing that nobody here has mentioned it, I'm pretty sure its just due to my screen discoloring everything.
I see some of you guys have mentioned the fact that Zach appears to have grown a darker coat, does he appear grey to you guys?

Can I hop onto this bandwagon?
Also, run, run before Karishad finds a random object to irritate you with, Or before I give him the required items for cornhole. :shock:
I was kinda surprised by Zachs coat actually... I almost didn't recognize him.

I think I will have to refer to my Joseph Campbell books to see if Zach matches any of the great archetypes.

When you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all.

Hopes Zach can be the opener of her heart. weee~! x3
