TB September 24, 2021 at 8:15 pm 2 years ago I think “ZAP!” is typically a stun shot unless the person actually disintegrates. Efogoto September 24, 2021 at 8:45 pm 2 years ago I think you’ve got it, as shown here. ZAP! is a shot, but when followed by “SPLUBT!” it’s a fatal shot. TB September 26, 2021 at 10:42 pm 2 years ago At one point, Dimitri actually immunized himself against stun shots by repeated exposure. This seems so useful that I’m surprised more people haven’t attempted it. Maybe it only works on humans. error September 24, 2021 at 1:41 am 2 years ago From a mile away. The 9 year old is going to become Captain! I also expect the Coyote to eat a dead something by the end of this. Efogoto September 24, 2021 at 1:42 am 2 years ago What happened here was a miracle! I think Stangor’s parents are named Vincent and Jules. Coyoty September 24, 2021 at 2:05 am 2 years ago “Why can’t I have the same captain for more than five minutes?” C.B.VINCENT GOUDREAULT September 24, 2021 at 3:44 am 2 years ago Why would both Stangor’s parent switch gun between the 3rd and the 5th panel? Flyswatter September 24, 2021 at 5:59 am 2 years ago Nice catch. They also switched positions (starting in panel 4). Let’s chalk it up to they’re both ambidextrous, and prefer to shoot with their outside hand when side by side? Scorpinac September 24, 2021 at 5:00 am 2 years ago With parents like these… Nova September 24, 2021 at 11:47 am 2 years ago The hell with the stribs, now we’ve reached the true villains of this story. 0z79 September 24, 2021 at 8:57 pm 2 years ago Nobody can be Captain except Ruddock the coyote, you nut-brained, squirrel-looking people. Pete Rogan September 24, 2021 at 10:02 pm 2 years ago Pip I said, and pip it is. Not wealth and high tech, but the RUMOR of wealth and high tech drives Stangor’s parents. And not some farcical emotional ceremony. Ciara’s lack of aim really disappoints me. I mean, I taught an Irish girl how to shoot. She was left-handed, a bit of a problem for a semiautomatic carbine that spat hot spent rounds into her hair — but she still shot better than I could by the end of the day. And Ciara doesn’t have the instinct? No wonder the Troubles took forever. But Nova and Oz79 have outlined the real problem now: Armed lunatics are in effective command of Spacetrawler, and given their history of poor decisions, are likely to make a hash of themselves, the ship, and everyone aboard it when they reach ‘Planet Gentlekindness.’ On the other hand… given that the batch of misfits all now in on the plan to stop the Stribs now includes Aitana, Tesfay, Chiphu, Ciara and Ruddock… along with Zakzar, Khaba and ‘Killer’ Diller the space-warper… the massively bored Qwlarum, Gulfex and Halleesh… and the massively incompetent but opportunistic pair of awful parents-of-Stangor…. I think that next week we’re going to see something like a stargoing version of “It’s A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World.” I can hear Eddie “Rochester” Anderson in his crippled ship impaled on a spiny extrusion from a bit of space wreckage telling his shocked and silent wife next to him: “Well…. +I+ didn’t want to go to ‘Planet Gentlekindness.'” Now to lay in my supply of lemonade and lo-salt popcorn for next week. Oh, yes. rws September 26, 2021 at 9:26 pm 2 years ago To be honest, at this point if planet Gentlekindness is destroyed with a great loss of life, I shall mourn about 30 seconds. Any surviving doggies will mourn even less. I don’t see how a species with no compassion at all ever evolved. Winnie September 27, 2021 at 12:19 pm 2 years ago Wow! Who knew Ciara was a lousy shot? Did we get a hint of her lack of aim earlier in the strip? Leave a Reply to Nova Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
