Rana August 14, 2018 at 10:12 pm 6 months ago Yes. That smile is… disturbing. Very disturbing. Coyoty August 14, 2018 at 12:18 am 6 months ago Gasp! He pflarbed his own father! And laughed about it! Monster! Or maybe he just wants Jabby to tell the Bollycks he killed them already so they won’t. Stefinatrix August 14, 2018 at 2:35 am 6 months ago I think Nogg pflarbed his trousers. JoseB August 14, 2018 at 7:33 am 6 months ago Have I said how much the onomatopoeia “PFLARB” makes me giggle? It makes me giggle, chortle and even snerk. Felix August 27, 2018 at 8:47 am 6 months ago In that exact order. Kaidah August 14, 2018 at 8:10 am 6 months ago What? The guy bonded at the molecular level to a horrible killing machine that won’t shut up and can basically control his every movement unhinged? That’s crazy talk. Coyoty August 14, 2018 at 8:42 pm 6 months ago At least the horrible killing machine is horrible at killing now. KQY August 14, 2018 at 8:20 am 6 months ago How in the heck can anyone get a good night’s sleep when they have just been PFLARB-ed? (!) SARA J DAVIS August 14, 2018 at 8:51 am 6 months ago I mean, given the context, Mauricio is really pretty sane. He’s been through a lot. Just saying – he could be worse. Or maybe he is, and this is just the hint of it. Some Bob August 14, 2018 at 11:03 am 6 months ago Jabby is like the old squirting lapel flower gag, only with glowing purple plasma. Jude August 14, 2018 at 9:30 pm 6 months ago The last two drawings of Mauricio reminds me of the same over-the-top insane humour face Anesu makes. Looks like Mauricio may have someone who *may* understand him. DSL August 14, 2018 at 9:53 pm 6 months ago As long as we’re talking about hinges, Mr. Zorilla, I’m not sure _your_ door sits squarely in its frame, if you know what I mean. Peter Rogan August 14, 2018 at 10:43 pm 6 months ago I do not like the way Mauricio seems to have normalized Jabby’s killing urges, now that they’ve been defanged — for now. He, and we, have no way of knowing how Jabby will react when he finally comprehends that he has been rendered harmless. He rebuilt Mauricio from the inside out and manipulated the Gounder’s energy-draining weapon into an energy source. That he will discover this I have little doubt; all it will take is the simple conflict between his secret orders and what he is able or unable to do. At best Jabby will not comprehend how Mauricio and his parasite were blasted to atoms by a ‘dead’ being Jabby had ‘justified.’ At worse…. This IS the weapon that survived an encounter with effectively a sentient black hole. I don’t think you can do THAT without being considerably, and I DO mean CONSIDERABLY resourceful. We never did find out how Mauricio escaped the Gounder’s impenetrable trap, for instance. We’ve not seen the end of Jabby’s abilities. Believe me.
