Mic November 4, 2022 at 3:12 am 11 months ago I gotta say, one thing I really do like seeing in my media is the heroes not being invulnerable. Scars, burns, long-term injuries, disfigurations. It makes dangerous situations actually feel dangerous, which is something Spacetrawler’s always done. TB November 9, 2022 at 2:08 pm 11 months ago They rebuilt his whole body. I doubt reconstructing a nose is going to be a serious problem for the tech of this civilization. Rikard November 4, 2022 at 4:16 am 11 months ago Now he can get a nose-patch, and use it to gross out kids everywhere when he lifts it! someone November 4, 2022 at 4:28 am 11 months ago Who nose which way this will blow? It snot going the way Chiphu thought it would! Flyswatter November 4, 2022 at 6:13 am 11 months ago Nobody nose the trouble I’ve seen… Scorpinac November 4, 2022 at 6:17 am 11 months ago Well, uh, he’s through the door… And with no one paying attention to where that thing is being driven, I’m guessing those three Stribs are probably about to bite it. Sean K. November 4, 2022 at 6:49 am 11 months ago From Farlihnk’s POV, removal of a nose is simply a makeover. “There, you look so much better now!” Keith November 4, 2022 at 8:13 am 11 months ago I habe whend dab habbens. Cracker Jack November 4, 2022 at 9:01 am 11 months ago My protagonist has no nose! How does he smell? Awful! JoseB November 4, 2022 at 11:16 am 11 months ago Is he going to do a Yuki and get himself later on a cute kitty nose (with whiskers!) to put in place of his missing proboscis? Mgnostic November 4, 2022 at 11:46 am 11 months ago There is a fine tradition of false noses in visual story telling. The Villain in “Cat Ballou” and one of the generals in the DeLaurentis version of “Dune” come to mind. Hmm, Chiphu might not like that association so much. Muzhik November 4, 2022 at 1:22 pm 11 months ago Decades ago, I saw a diagram from the Middle Ages that showed how they would “rebuild” a nose when yours had been sliced off. It took over a year and was really painful. First, they’d put your non-dominant arm in a type of sling and affix it so your hand was on the top of your head. Immobilize the arm, then peel off a piece of flesh from the arm that will be used to recreate the nose. Keep one end attached to the arm and attach the other end to where the old nose ended, making sure the flesh attached to the face had a good supply of blood. After a year of letting things set, make sure the arm flesh had now securely grown attached to the face, then cut it off from the arm and remove the sling holding your hand. You now had a lump of flesh attached to your face that can now be shaped to look like a nose. (I didn’t say it was perfect, just that it was painful. Hopefully the Med-bot tools have become more effective since then.) VINCENT GOUDREAULT November 5, 2022 at 3:05 am 11 months ago The illustration is from 1840. The 19th century is not the middle age, they had steam train and steamboat at that time. Pete Rogan November 4, 2022 at 2:52 pm 11 months ago Welp, wrong again. It’s a cut of a higher caliber. I’m surprised no one has mentioned either “Sleeper” with its leader’s nose meeting a crushing fate, or “Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy,” and the unfortunate nose religion. But now I have, so let the reference rumble BEGIN! Coyoty November 5, 2022 at 2:58 am 11 months ago I considered referencing “Sleeper”, but I thought the joke I used was more on the nose. Efogoto November 6, 2022 at 1:49 am 11 months ago I’m thinking a more severe attack than Jack Nicholson suffered in Chinatown. Maybe a bandage for the remainder of Spacetrawler? Dr. Moosen McMoose, Chief Spymooster of the Moosad November 4, 2022 at 10:06 pm 11 months ago Like a certain Lannister, Chiphu’s always been a little Impish. TheWreck November 5, 2022 at 9:20 pm 11 months ago Instead of looking down his nose at people, Chiphu now has to look down for his nose. TheWreck November 5, 2022 at 9:25 pm 11 months ago Pally, I’d have to say I agree with you here. Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
