Day one (December 10th)

The Beginning

1 Mateo Mateo is summoned to an urgent owners’ meeting…
2 Mateo …But he gets distracted by a trail of money…
3 Mateo …Which leads him to his building’s rooftop…
4 Mateo …There he meets three strange white chubby beings…
5 Mateo …Bermie, Philip and Kolia Malone are their names. Hunters, they call themselves…
6 Mateo …Mateo won’t do as a bait for the Great Kudu ―the Malones’ target― so he is dismissed…
7 Mateo …Thankfully, a giant rodent called Nuno takes care of him…
8 Mateo …The three hunters have motivation issues…
9 Mateo Serious motivation issues…
10 Mateo …Nuno is a teaser, but he seems like a nice guy…
11 Mateo …The night holds more surprises. Big ones ―like Roc…
12 Mateo …And dark ones ―like the Limanda…
13 Mateo …Communication with the Limanda ain’t easy, since it doesn’t talk…
14 Mateo …But love finds a way ―boosted by the Limanda’s mental abilities…
15 Mateo …It doesn’t last long, though…
16 Mateo …So Nuno takes Mateo fishing to take his mind off things…
17 Mateo …If you can call that fishing…
18 Mateo …And that a fish…
19 Mateo …The meeting! Mateo forgot! He has to run…
20 Mateo …Leaving Nuno lonely…
21 Mateo …It’s a matter of getting off the roof…
22 Mateo …But the Limanda is around…
23 Mateo …And it won’t make it easy. Luckily, Roc is around too…
24 Mateo …Now if he could just sneak past the Malones…
25 Mateo …He sort of made it!…
26 Mateo …But it’s wildly late. And the meeting was extra-urgent and extra-important. What now?



Day two (December 11th)

First Consequences

27 Mateo Next morning, Mateo rings Mr MacKrull from his office. He’s supposed to help with the meeting business…
28 Mateo …But only his voicemail can be reached…
29 Mateo …Or so it seemed!…
30 Mateo …Finally! With a little help from his friends, Mateo arranges an appointment for tomorrow…
31 Mateo …But friends will eventually let you down…
32 Mateo …Nuno thinks of Mateo, kinda…
33 Mateo …The Limanda, it knows more than it shows…
34 Mateo …Nuno goes on fishing…
35 Mateo …Mateo thinks about his new acquaintances…
36 Mateo …Then, he goes to sleep…
37 Mateo …But his concerns follow him into his dreams…
38 Mateo …He’d better wake up…
39 Mateo …Or, given what awaits him, maybe not…
40 Mateo …We don’t know why, but the Limanda wants him to sleep…
41 Mateo …But Mateo is just too tired for that…
42 Mateo …He won’t take it any longer… Unless, of course, he really must…
43 Mateo …OK, then! He’s outta there and heads to the rooftop…
44 Mateo …In his pajamas! Not the best of times to meet his cute neighbor, Sammy…
45 Mateo …Nuno takes the rap for Mateo’s bad mood…
46 Mateo …And a cat takes the rap for Nuno’s…



Day three (December 12th)

Better Luck Next Time

47 Mateo After a long fishing session, the angler goes home for a long sleeping session…
48 Mateo …Only to find a long sleeping schnook in his bed ―who won’t wake up…
49 Mateo …The Malones have a purpose in life…
50 Mateo …Finally, Mateo remembers his appointment with Mr MacKrull…
51 Mateo …The Limanda has problems like the rest of us. Roc, for one, gives it the creeps…
52 Mateo …And for good reason…
53 Mateo …We ―and Mateo― finally meet Mr MacKrull…
54 Mateo …But Mateo is late, and he mumbles, and Mr MacKrull is not that nice…
55 Mateo …So Mateo’ll have to wait until tomorrow…
56 Mateo …As he leaves, again he has an unfortunate encounter with gorgeous Sammy…
57 Mateo …Who is headed home, released early from work…
58 Mateo …Someone unexpected awaits her there, however…
59 Mateo …Sammy looks for help, but the Limanda is faster…
60 Mateo …And she has to face the creature…
61 Mateo …Who puts her to sleep…



Day four (December 13th)

The Issue

63 Mateo Next morning she seems fine again, ready for yet one more awkward Mateo moment…
64 Mateo …He’s on his way to Mr MacKrull’s again, who ain’t so eager to collaborate…
65 Mateo …But finally comes clean: the building’s structure is severely and anomalously damaged! Evicting can’t be ruled out…
66 Mateo …The news devastate Mateo, but he has the courage to pretend otherwise when facing Sammy…
67 Mateo …Meanwhile, weather is merciless on the roof. Not the best for fishing…
68 Mateo …Or for building Great Kudu traps…
69 Mateo …In a unexpected turn of events, Kolia Malone seizes power…
70 Mateo …And uses it…
71 Mateo …Mateo muses about the day’s events…
72 Mateo …When at bedtime, the Limanda keeps stalking him…



And that’s all I can tell

…For now

NOTE: I’ll update this section every time a day in the story comes to an end.

You may notice there’s no #62 strip. That strip was posted on October 31st, 2010 and was Halloween-related. It was obviously non-canon (the story happens in December), so I moved it to the Pigeonic Goodness section.
