Oh oh, looks like he might have just died as well. That or having an out of body experience.
Seeing his reaction both here and before, I get the feeling that Warmonger was a bit more "of use" to Tactical than he lets on.
Got to be OBE. Or perhaps a hallucination. Of course, I am assuming. Really, since we don't know if Warmonger was inclined to blame others for his own stupidity, it's hard to say whether this is his spectre, or Tactical's paranoia-inspired imagination at work.
Meanwhile, this would be a perfect time to snip those skin strips on Tacty's mouth. Might give him a better outlook to be able to eat with his entire mouth.
I'm not sure about Tactical's mouth; I've never been able to decide if he wears his scars as a badge of honor, or he cares nothing for his own wellbeing. Both of those seem unlikely, though, because he is clearly narcissistic.
Like OBE's in our world, the argument is always: Is it a real, objective experience; or, is it dopamine influenced hallucinations in an oxygen starved brain. In the end, I don't think it matters, because it's an experience with results, and thus real, no matter what the source.
Then again, he may wear them in an attempt to scare hell out of people. And it just occurred to me that Tactical may not have good use of that side of his face—in which case, the strips wouldn't really phase him, and might even be helpful. I once (and may again, lucky me) had an attack of Bell's Palsy, which paralyzes one side of the face, including, in my case, at least, my lips on one side (though my jaws still worked fine). Made eating hell. Talking wasn't a bag of laughs, either, but food trying to escape through the loose side of my mouth was a problem, and drinking was ghastly—like I always had a dribble glass. The only good thing was that it only lasted for a couple of months, but Tacty's problem looks as though it's here to stay.
Wow… There's really nothing more to add other than "wow"
Stereotypical 'first time reader' here. Stumbled on your website… not sure how. Started at the beginning thinking 'bleh, the artwork seems kitschy. Like they're aiming for old-style superhero comics.' Halfway through the first chapter I realized that not only did it fit, but I honestly couldn't see it as anything else.
Amazing storyline, hilarious takedowns (did 'Saturn Light' expect Warmonger to leap out like that? Or was that simply icing on the cake? Either way, it got a laugh out of me) and memorable characters… I'm definitely coming back to this one.
Thanks, AvA! Please do keep coming back. I'll be the first to admit that the artwork does look Silver-Age most of the time, but it's not an affectation on my part–That's when I grew up and discovered comics!
As far as the stories go, we try to turn cliche's on their ears. Yet, in a way, I suppose that we are aknowladging those old cliches by so doing.
Thanks again! Scott
Just like a villain to claim he was murdered, when in fact he got himself killed like the idiot he is. That was no different from jumping out an open window.
