Sheriff Hank finally gets fed up with that weird, sepia-tone. It was bound to happen. His life isn't an episode of Maverick or Rawhide, after all.

The boys are finally allowed to leave the jailhouse, and Hank was even nice enough to buy them a drink. Maybe that'll keep 'em out of trouble. (or NOT)

Hogan and Ron Bender were nice enough to give me a bit of leeway in the Shelterville make-up, as I make this comic, so I am gonna take advantage. I love me some World-Building.
So, as Shelterville is a nexus of realities and such, one would imagine that currency from all over the space-time continuum is accepted in places of business. The Shelterville Bank has a very active currency transfer department, and one has to be very good at math when manning a cash register. The 3 golden cards that Hank has given the boys are actually gold. Crafted into thin sheets and pressed into equally sized cards worth exactly 7 (monies/omnicredits/dollars, quatloos, etc) each, according to the current gold standard. Just enough for a bottle of whiskey.

More to come.

I like them better in the western outfits

Fear not. The boys change outfits like a chameleon in a vat of Skittles changes colors! You'll see them in western garb again.

Chameleons change colour slowly and tend to large areas of consistent coverage. If you want rapid colour and texture changes, look at cephalopods (octopus, squid and especially cuttlefish).

Hank doesn't want things to get weirder?

Kind of ironic that he's got a crush on Gertrude then considering all the weirdness that follows the girls. ;-)

I'm sure one of the tricksters he's dealt with is Lan Fiveclaw, while not primarily a trickster by any stretch, when the situation isn't critical, (or even sometimes when it is) it does show as second nature.

I loved this trio already from your earlier stand-alone comics, but having them run free in an entire storyline with little holding them back (save Hank's patience) is pure gold! :D

Summer is probably more of a trickster than Lan. I like the part where the sheriff tells the trio to turn the dang color back on. 1886 didn't really look like that!

If you really wanted them to leave town, wouldn't it make more sense to give them money for a train ticket?
