That girl on the REA-5 team...

Some time ago, I realized something about the 4-U City Riff's wife Izzy that may be so obvious that it escapes people who can often be blind to the obvious, like myself. For those like me, who may yet not realize the implications of Alt-Riff's wife, mentioned by Torg in today's comic, and who may not want the surprise spoiled, before it is given away by Pete, or they have their own "ah-ha!" moment, I will use a cut tag.

The 4-U City Alt-Riff's wife, Izzy, is the analog of the main, "Sluggy Prime" universe character Isabella, who is the sister of Anthony, the Minion Master, and the computer genius who helps erase traces of the Minion Master's minions. For those who are not too busy saying "Well, DUUUH!" at this point, I will say that I realized this in a flash of belated intuition when Riff and Alt-Riff were discussing her and Riff pointed out that she was the best person he knows at hacking the city's computer networks and then when Alt-Riff admitted to killing Izzy's brother, that was the clincher.

So, today we find out that Riff isn't going to talk about Izzy to Prime Torg and Zoe. Hmm, I can hardly wait for him to meet his world's Isabella...
