Here's strip 98 of Dude in Distress, which brings Episode 2: First Date to an ominous close as the probe we saw back in strip 91 (http://dudeindistress.thecomicseries.com/comics/114/) returns to its master.

Who is this mysterious fiend?

What has he done to be imprisoned in Black Ark Pen?

Anyone surprised by how small the probe actually is?

Look for answers to these questions (well, the first two, anyway) in the next episode.

I'll be taking a week off next week for the holiday, then come back on New Year's Eve with the first teaser for Episode 3, before beginning the semi-hiatus while I ramp up production on the next episode.

Looks like we just met one of the Femme Fanatics

What connection does our mystery felon have to FF!?

Have we heard about Black Ark Pen. before? I feel like I recognize the name but I'm not sure, when would that have come up in the comic so far?

Also I was surprised at how small that drone thingy was. I went back to look at why I would have reason to be surprised. Something seems to suggest a not-that-small lens, but I'm not sure exactly what so I really have no grounds for expectations.

Black Ark Penitentiary got a mention in this strip (http://dudeindistress.thecomicseries.com/comics/47/) when Lady Lightspeed made mention of FF's official fan club there (The Femme Fanatics).

(Blarggh!! Tried to link the relevant page, but HTML is blocked and I'm unsure of how BBCode works...)

Great answer, thankyou!

Let me try simply wrapping the address with square-bracketed url and /url tags:

Flawless victory!

Let's go for broke and see if a code tag will let me show exactly what I did:

Perfect. Just one more thing, linking [url=en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BBCode]that wiki page[/url] the fancy way.

Black Ark Pen was also mentioned back in the second panel of the very first strip (dudeindistress.thecomicseries.com/comics/10/).

Arrrggh you sneaky bee! Linking the very first page, certainly making me re-read the entire comic... (how could I possibly resist, I love this comic) :)

Yeah, that went down as expected... it is now 04:30 my time. I feel happy, fortunate to have such an awesome read in my hands. I will feel other things when I try to wake up tomorrow (technically today by a wide margin).
