Well the Magic 8 Ball can still be purchased. The kind Talbot has, however, might prove impossible to find. ;) More will be said of his 8 Ball pretty soon in the comic.
Pack mentality

The last few pages got me wondering as out something. Could you please explain the concept of werewolf packs in this comic? At times it seems that it's more of a friendship, but the first introduction claimed it wasn't.

Given that the 'wolves are in essence just the same as a human society, they use the term "pack" as a term for the whole of the town, as they're Riqurélio's pack. However, they do also use it for subset groups. For instance, the first use of the word comes when George says to Floyd (of Talbot): "You don't even know if he's in your pack!" Here George refers to whether or not Talbot's gay. (He's not.) Then, later in that same scene, Darkfang uses the word in the sense of 'Riqurélio's pack': "...and welcome him into the pack." Of course, Darkfang could also mean their own little circle of friends, as Kevin uses it at Basil Burger: "You're in a pack with THESE guys?" The 'wolves understand which use of pack by context. I hope that clarifies it for you. Thanks for reading and being interested!

I see, it's less of a hierarchical title and more of a cultural replacement for most words refering to groups of various sections and subsections. Thank you, that does help with clarification.
