Coyoty May 8, 2018 at 1:10 am 2 years ago “Now for your nickname. Bikkie the…?” “BLOOOOODD!” “We need something better than BLOOOOODD, sucker.” “Blood Sucker works.” “Okay. Whatever.” Elaborate May 8, 2018 at 5:43 am 2 years ago Hm. I mean, on the one hand Bikkie will win. This is indisputable. But I could imagine several models of alien who would have a SEVERE ADVANTAGE against Earth Kangaroos, though I guess id depends on the actual rules. Does Bikkie have the boxing finesse to win on *points* against, say, a cyborg-augmented T-rex? A T-rex couldn’t hit Bikkie with its fists, but there is little actual damage Bikkie could do, even skipping the “below-the-belt” rule. Can he up the violence angle enough to win on “opponent death” against a sentient swarm of bees with tiny boxing gloves? Efogoto May 8, 2018 at 11:41 am 2 years ago Are there no weight classes in interstellar boxing? Nomi May 8, 2018 at 12:16 pm 2 years ago Does a sentient swarm of bees _need_ tiny boxing gloves? The rule was no claws, only. 3oranges May 8, 2018 at 4:07 pm 2 years ago Some bees might not want gloves, but since honeybees die when they sting, it might be better to use them. Mic May 8, 2018 at 9:57 pm 2 years ago Space bees might not die and have twelve stingrrs. andreas May 8, 2018 at 5:58 am 2 years ago “Anesu, this is all part of our plan to save the universe, right?” “Wha’? Ah. Good point. I mean – of course. Obviously. Integral part. Why would you even ask?” Efogoto May 8, 2018 at 10:50 pm 2 years ago Came back too early for the update, but read again happily and love Anesu’s expression in that last panel as she nearly swoons with delight. Eric October 6, 2018 at 12:22 am 1 year ago Anesu seems to be the Dmitri of this group. Easily underestimated but has plans beneath plans and somehow manages to get fortune on their side. Btw, love the shading and texture on her jacket. Portista October 29, 2018 at 4:55 pm 1 year ago While the 360* vision is pretty cool, it’s the bright green tongue I really like.
