    Which, if I may say, is so good it's uncanny. Unnerving, even.

    Outside of the Prologue, the only 'combat' that happens is when the alien scout ships appear in the atmosphere above Hellhole and Capt. Jack Solo shoots at them with the defensive weapons. Even supersonic rounds can't hit them!

    Never mind the physics involved, which is drastically more advanced than anything they have. (Kevin, if they use rocket engines to accelerate their ships, they need as much time to slow down as they do to accelerate.)

    Is there a term for something that makes less sense the more you think about it?

    Both of those new ones are classics. Hilarious.

    I really wanted to have it say:
    Guard: "He cut his own hands off with this saw"
    Keanu: "What? how did he do that?"
    Guard: "It's obvious he was very determined."
    However since having Keanu make even a single intelligent observation would not be in character, and I was cramped for space, I left it out. The saw alone as a suicide weapon gets the point across. This strip was born when KJA through Bishop described the murder as both easy and messy, and made to look like a suicide... its especially funny when Bishop scrubs himself with disinfectant afterwards. Hey Kevin, while 'disinfectant' will kill blood cells, THEY ARE STILL THERE. Good thing for him this is KJAverse, where there is no security.
