maybe that's the weapon check area for the club. leave em there
Hmm I didn't think of that. Although Beo's belt is hardly a weapon lol.

Also another fun detail noticed in the background of the stage is the John Wick-style target list blackboard with some familiar names:

Poor Juju may have been taken out by Dahlia which canonically explains why she's missing. ;__;

Having said that, the names are actually all those of Skullgirls devs from both FC and HVS, so it could just be an Easter egg.

Juju - Justine Stewart (Juju_blu) (HVS dev) (double reference to Juju the deleted character?)
Jon S. - Jon Snow (FC dev)
Elie - Elie Byun (HVS dev)
Darren - Darren Malley (HVS dev)
Eric - Eric Park (HVS dev)
Chris (?) - Chris Cunningham (fullbleed) (HVS dev)
James - James Meddock (almightybones) (HVS dev)
Ren - Ren Ito (HVS dev)
Andrew - Andrew Dos Santos (HVS dev)
Clark - Clark Kromenaker (HVS dev)
Rodrigo - Rodrigo Gómez (HVS dev)

If he's going there he's probably going to beat someone up, or maybe get some information, like a private detective.
The Private Detective Saxophone thing is genuinely amazing.

Looks to me like one of the Medici goons' tommy gun so probably not supposed to be part of the trophies? Guess we'll see
Well, Dahlia has a hand in dealing with the goons that disappoint their Medici masters, so...

Yo, Dahlia's got man-Bunnies?
I wonder why the guy near the man-bunny looks like Adam.

love evil chicken, too.
I guess, this chicken is a feather supplier. A big player in the local business scene.

Hmm I didn't think of that. Although Beo's belt is hardly a weapon lol.
Makes you think what happened to the Hurting...

Poor Juju may have been taken out by Dahlia which canonically explains why she's missing. ;__
And that's how Juju finally made it into the game.
R.I.P., Juju (the sniper, not the dev).

I'm really amused, how Justine's nickname fits in. A perfect coincidence.
Is there a dev named Stanley? Asking for a friend.

Interesting thought.

Lol I see what you mean but it's just a similar hairstyle I think. His fringe is way more swoopy than Adam's. Would have been a fun detail if Adam was infiltrating the club though.

Dahlia is probably sitting on it.

Especially in a frog costume.
He really shines in that role.

Oh no! That's just hurtful.

Wow, how long has it been since that was first announced? I honestly kinda just assumed it had been canceled.

In keeping with the theme of this thread, the wording of the tweet stood out to me:

Thank you to writer @MikeExner3, and artists @Wiirdo & @pasteldot for their tireless efforts bringing stories from the Skullgirls universe to life!

Keyword being stories - plural. Perhaps the webtoon won't be a single storyline but several stories in an anthological format?

announced 3 years ago. Which has been a damn long time as far as recent events go.
I wonder if we finally can get a backstory for The Fishbone Gang.
Or a speaking line for Roxie.

Personally, I appreciate the confirmation that Marie is indeed a hottie.
I mean, she literally has flames coming out her back. Gotta be pretty damn hot.

I will always refer to the Webtoon timeline as the Hotties Wrecking Bodies (HWB) universe and no one can stop me.
Wait... Is it a separate timeline?

Yes, it was confirmed on Discord.
Okay. I take back my words about Marie's wish.

Is Adam's ruined jacket non-canon too?..

And does it mean that someone like Aileen and Florence will appear in the comic later?

Well background stories can probably still be regarded as based on canon, but the actual events taking place in the comics can't be taken as set in stone. We'll just have to see.

Is Adam's ruined jacket non-canon too?..
Either way I'm sure he has more lol

And does it mean that someone like Aileen and Florence will appear in the comic later?
That's my hope.

I think this might be the first time they've properly shown Dahlia's splash art in full. Those three particular bunny assassins seem to appear quite a few times, as based on their hairstyles they also appear in her winpose and one of her supers, as well as the first page of the webcomic.
