    wow i didn’t see this coming!

  2. Sulucamas

    I’m just going to sit here and scream for a little bit.

  3. Shad

    WHOA my random suspicion from last week was right!?

  4. Shad

    …. Looking at it again, it seems this reporter person is who they’re calling. Veled just HAPPENS to be there at the right time.

  5. nightarix

    well this will probably be an interesting phone-call for all involved.

  6. nikolai60

    There’s a lot to say about this situation, but right now my brain’s only concerned about one thing:


  7. Brunhidden

    im assuming we are not supposed to recognise the dude, but i going to assume he is basically the guy robert de-niero played in ‘wag the dog’, and looks tasty to veled at the moment

  8. The_Rippy_One

    @Sul: Yeah. That is the proper reaction. I’ll join you in doing that for a bit…

    On other notes: OMG that asteroid construction. And that wallpaper. I’m not sure if I should make snide remarks or say they are the coolest things ever. Nice asteroid holes…

    Secondly. Nice touch on Veled’s neck-scales lifting. I like conservation of detail. And pissed off women are cuter. (8th leading cause of death – expressing this fact)

  9. Vulpis

    Hmmm. A journalist is a *client* for the zombie-slave trade? That’s ominous.

    On a side note–I’d be amused to see a crossover with DFMA, particularly Veled meeting Fa’lina…though Veled meeting Piflak (and her pantsing fetish) would likely be messy–in one sort of way or another.

  10. Vulpis

    @The_Rippy_One Only the 8th? Especially considering the proximity and…angle between the two, though he does seem to be getting neck-strain from making sure to look *up* rather than downward… 😉

  11. xzeddx

    Well I wonder what this Artur Fortune look alike has plans for…

  12. Kermit

    …I think it’s time to bust out the popcorn, ‘cos this is gonna get good.

  13. Josh.C

    So the guy knows someone Veled wants.

    The guy is being called on to help Jigsaw’s group on the whole bunch of potential problems they have on their end.

    Now considering how Veled likes to play both side, we might get to see just how much she’s willing to bend to keep stability on her world. Remember that she’s a tri-wing hybrid savior of the Endless who doesn’t exactly like the Star Org.

    All those things kind of make it hard to pin down what she’ll do once she hears what happening on Jigsaw’s end. Probably be a shorter list to guess what she won’t possibly do.

    Sci-fi nut here, and I LOVE the asteroid belt. Most asteroids in art and writing are depicted with all the excitement of a dry creek bed.

  15. The_Rippy_One

    Just a thought, I assume Gabe was his actual shrink, back before StarOrg made V drop him and Messiah-up, and he lost his mind and became a Whismer. Why would the number still be in his Digital roll-a-dex?. Cause it’s to big a pain in the neck to cull them? Seriously, hit any doctor’s office, they’ll almost always have patient stuff going back 20, 30 years, on the off chance it will be needed.

    Oh, and meanwhile, Veled likes to be watched. I think we can now guess why the tabloids followed her. *there is suddenly a scaley fist in Rippy’s gut* *It’s okay, those vertebra weren’t really needed, right?*

  16. Josh.C

    Kind of interesting to notice those marks on the wall above the guys head in the second panel.

    Veled taking pot shots at the guy to get him to talk?^^

  17. e_voyager

    it’s the liking and audience part that gets me. who would have thought that Veled was an exhibitionist

  18. Vulpis

    @e_voyager *laugh* I was just about to make a comment about that, *especially* given their relative body positions in the last panel…but I don’t think Jig does that rating. 😉

    @Josh.C Given veled, that’s probably from her *punching* the wall over his head. Not only does she like an audience, she likes it to be rough. ;-)Come to think of it, that might be why she hooked up with Gabriel in the first place…I wonder if he made her wear her Scout uniform…

  19. The_Rippy_One

    @Vulpis: Naw, if she punched the wall, there wouldn’t be a wall. Zil are strong, and Veled works to improve that base superiority.

  20. e_voyager

    well we don’t know how strong the wall is and looking at the holes she could have simply been using one finger to put holes in the wall instead of poking him through the chest.

  21. Vulpis

    Either that, or a Canadian Goose came through–see

  22. The_Rippy_One

    I assume they are either micrometeoroid-strikes, or bulletholes…

  23. Evonix

    Just in the top 5 threat list?! Do a few the local stars get easily annoyed?

  24. FlashXX

    @Sulucamas: o_0…-_-; Do you have room for this one? Haven’t had a good scream lately.
