If you are going to kill someone, do it. Don’t swap life stories. Hans April 3, 2023 at 4:59 am 8 months ago No offence but let me ask wether you refer to a different comic here? IMO life stories were swapped by our most beloved friends not the evil Strib. So it was a most efficient story on an effective defence tactic. Especially as they include Diller in their menagerie of trustworthy allies. Anyway the robot mice will elaborate on that and other philsophical aspects soon, I guess. Oh and make it a Mickey for me please. TB April 3, 2023 at 3:36 pm 8 months ago Not sure bringing the robot mice back to the predator they were created for is doing them much of a favor. Coyoty April 3, 2023 at 3:41 am 8 months ago All she is saying is give peas a chance. someone April 3, 2023 at 6:07 am 8 months ago A one out of seven chance, in fact. 0z79 April 3, 2023 at 4:36 pm 8 months ago GAHH… you two almost made me spit hot coffee from my nose. Max April 3, 2023 at 12:29 pm 8 months ago Hmmm… throw-away line or Chekhov’s peas…? Coyoty April 4, 2023 at 3:46 am 8 months ago Aitana’s a pea shooter. KQY61 April 3, 2023 at 6:55 am 8 months ago Envision whirled peas….. Flyswatter April 3, 2023 at 9:22 am 8 months ago With the bag over his shoulder, Bar-Bot looks like Hobo-Bot. Easily Amused April 3, 2023 at 12:06 pm 8 months ago Mice: 0 0 0 0 0 2 VINCENT GOUDREAULT April 3, 2023 at 12:55 pm 8 months ago It is weird that Alkyine has a transparent eyelid that can actually hide the eye. TB April 3, 2023 at 3:35 pm 8 months ago That is pretty weird. Obviously, it’s a bit of license so you can do expressions properly, but I’ve seen similar conventions. An invisible person in one movie I saw could hide something in his hand and you couldn’t see it. totematika April 4, 2023 at 1:42 am 8 months ago There are known meta-materials exhibiting similar properties IRL. At this point I would guess that all of the organs are light blue, but dispersed by the (otherwise transparent) jello, except for the eye, which for obvious reasons needs to be able to interact with light without distortions. Coyoty April 4, 2023 at 3:52 am 8 months ago Alkyine’s eyeball probably has a surface that reflects direct light. When the lid covers it, it allows light to pass through without reflection. 3oranges April 4, 2023 at 1:43 pm 8 months ago Or maybe the eye itself contracts, leaving a section of gelatinous material to fill the area in a way that looks a lot like an eyelid would. Meran April 26, 2023 at 5:48 am 8 months ago Maybe there’s no eyelid. That’s actually her EYEBALL flattening like that. Gotta see it from a different POV. Devin April 3, 2023 at 5:49 pm 8 months ago Love the Douglas Adams reference in the last panel! totematika April 4, 2023 at 1:43 am 8 months ago Doesnt even have limbs! Pete Rogan April 3, 2023 at 7:37 pm 8 months ago Don’t think it’s a talent. My brother put a wad of purple construction paper up his nose. He forgot about it. Seven weeks later at the pediatrician’s, who was looking into his sneezing, he suddenly manifested the reason it wasn’t allergies. A remarkable feat of concealment, but I doubt you can weaponize or monetize it. And what’s a talent you can’t hurt somebody or make money with worth, really? TheWreck April 3, 2023 at 8:46 pm 8 months ago A hobby? nightgaunt April 3, 2023 at 11:38 pm 8 months ago Gomez Addams was quite good at sword swallowing.
