So they can make her take a shower. Rikard January 14, 2021 at 5:00 am 2 years ago Remove the leg, remove the ball-and-chain, re-attach the leg? Or a peg-leg. With hightech upgrades of course. Rocket-peg? Anti-grav-peg? Antimatter-layzor-alakazapp-peg? A push-function so the peg-leg dispenses the smell of artificial pine needles and lemons every other step? No need to hobble ones imagination, you could fit anything in there! Cue scene: “Ehm, Stangor, why does your peg-leg sound like Darth Vader?” “Who’s that?” Carl K January 14, 2021 at 1:09 pm 2 years ago Would it really kill her, or is that another joke from the miners? I expect Ruddock to be the one who frees her. Pete Rogan January 14, 2021 at 2:34 pm 2 years ago And while everybody’s concerned with Stangor’s lethal leg shackle, I’m contemplating what the Wezwez miners have that can keep up with a greased dark light speed drive, let alone overtake it and deal out whatever they have in mind for Stangor and the people who freed her. Going to be interesting next week, I think. Getting a refill of my ice water. Oof. Still hard to get out of this bent chair. Peter Ware January 14, 2021 at 8:40 pm 2 years ago Wait again – they’re right side up and back on the floor – what happened to the Reverse Gravity switch? I’m so confused! TB January 14, 2021 at 11:15 pm 2 years ago Hey, SOME things have to be resolved off-panel or we’d be here years longer than necessary. Christopher Baldwin January 15, 2021 at 4:14 pm 2 years ago @Peter, @TB and @Efototo explained it perfectly in their two points. 🙂 (and the change of clothes is also meant to imply that it is the next day, so everything feels upside-right again). Efogoto January 15, 2021 at 2:56 am 2 years ago They also changed clothes. Time must have passed. Night-Gaunt January 16, 2021 at 12:18 am 2 years ago Probably the link is some kind of dead man’s hand where disconnexion is what set s it off. Possibly a pulse being sent though. Interrupt it and BOOM! The equipment to remove it is specialized, and owned by the prison. Muzhik January 17, 2021 at 12:37 pm 2 years ago The equipment to remove it is specialized, and owned by the prison. Sounds very Snake Plissken (“Escape from New York”). Pete Rogan January 17, 2021 at 7:23 pm 2 years ago I heard he was dead. Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
