#68 Intriguing Individuals: SahOctober 13, 2017
The way the Scholar-Pioneers give us new inventions haphazardly can be rather inconvenient.
Thus, one individual attempts to “reverse-engineer” inventions in order to copy them.
She is thought a bit mad, but we decided to meet her to unravel the secrets of the Scholar-Pioneers.
So we enter the home of Sah Trickfinger, the self-proclaimed “Recreator”.
Do you like owls? Proclaim your love to the world!
What is this “reverse-engineering” business? Apparently, it is about trying to guess how something was created by taking the thing apart. For the next few weeks we will be keeping a close eye on Sah on her mighty quest!
Please do not ask what the stuff around Sah's house and behind her are… I just went and drew what I saw. Additionally, many of the objects were already taken apart, so there were mainly lots of parts and hollow frames lying about.
If you want to know who the Scholar-Pioneers are, they are introduced more in-depth in comic #36. They also appear in a handful of other strips, when we tackle some of the inventions they have made for us to use.

This week’s theme is Fantastic and Frightening Futures! We have one series mimicking an old style of comics (though not quite as ancient as you might see on this site). Both series offer an alternative look at the future of mankind: one based on what humans thought the future would look like back in the 1800s, and the other what might go wrong if mankind had a bunch of super-powered people protecting them go haywire.
An impulsive teenager turned mummy investigates her own murder with the assistance of a cantankerous ghost. Our story occurs in a future based on predictions from the late 1800s—a future where everyone can fly and there’s no such thing as wi-fi.
When a coup for power sends the world’s superhuman population into all out war, humanity is pushed to the brink of extinction. In their final hour a weapon designed to strip power from all superhumans is unleashed. On some, it works. Others become something far worse.
