The Party 'Til The World Obeys finally gets rolling, and Karl 
contemplates a room full of world dominators.  Meanwhile, the Powernaut 
is back - facing Super-Hurricane Katrina!  Things start moving fast from 


I considered publishing another Bonus Section this week, but my 2005 
commentator doesn't know enough about all the guest stars.  This is a 
job for Author's Notes!


The guests at the Party 'Til The World Obeys deserve some mention in a 
way the 2005 commentator may not be able to provide... Wyatt Ferguson 
met a council of villains in 2007, whose membership closely resembles 
the people on panel. (The Siege of Raleigh, 
http://www.eilertech.com/stories/2007/raleigh.htm)  Eric X from the 2011 
series is leading the conclave.  Russell Anvernacht and Philippe St. 
Joseph Lateran (characters both longstanding and future) are prominent. 
  Osama bin Laden is in the audience too; I actually used the cover art 
from my 2007 story for artistic reference.

Powernaut comics are optimized for download speed, not for art quality; 
it takes at least eight Powernaut strips to fill as much bandwidth as 
one comic from other people. But I'm trying out some new artistic tricks 
to increase my pixel budget, particularly where reality storms and 
Pentahedrons are involved. I'm also compressing the artwork more than 
ever before (indexed instead of RGB mode), which reduces my pixel 
budget. Hopefully these two trends will keep each other from extremes. 
And if the art with Hypergaardians in it makes the other stuff look 
flat, that's really not a bad thing. The visitors themselves look as 
flat as everyone else (so far), because they're trying to fit in. But 
space tends to bend around them.
