12/04/17 Space is Dangerous


  1. Must’ve watched too many gunfighter shows in my youth – when I got to the 2nd last panel, I *saw* the swiftmovement of Devyat and Pilot drawing on each other. Much like a good book, as one reads through it, it plays out similar to watching a movie.

    Devyat may still be a girl – not yet fully an adult – but she’s got her mom’s intelligence and her dad’s ‘smarts’. Poppa would be so proud of her!

    “Space is dangerous. Really dangerous. You just won’t believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly dangerous it is. I mean, you may think it’s a dangerous walk way down the dark road to the liquor store, but that’s just peanuts to space.”

    More impressive for Devyat. As the last panel shows, she didn’t pull her weapons from a holster, like Pilot. She had to open her coat and pull out the guns from wherever she had stashed them in there. (Last panel shows her putting a gun away inside the coat.

      As the Joker once said, all it takes is “one bad day.”

      Poor Mauricio has had a long series of them, and frankly, did pretty well for somebody who thought alpaca herding would be a good life.

      Also, if you didn’t realize that Jabby was a sentient killing machine attached to Mauricio, you’d have to assume that Mauricio was the one killing everyone, whilst crying about it.

    Isn’t it a bad idea to fire blasters inside a space ship? Or do they have a kill setting that won’t penetrate bulkheads? Knives and swords would be better. Vibro-knives and plasma swords that is…

    Sure, they are nice, just they are also “salty” in that they can be violent too.

    Gweedo drew first, Han fired first under the table after Gweedo said he was going to murder him. Self defense all the way down the line. Next case!

      I seem to remember early on in Spacetrawler that they were freaking out about the use of projectile weapons on the Starbanger, so my guess is that their energy weapons are fine and not a threat to the ‘glass’ of the windows/bulkhead.
