    I’m always amazed how Aaron can take the path least expected.

    Something doesn’t compute. The gun (much smaller than W&H) got smashed. Petey (approx the same size AND moving faster) gets knocked for a loop. But W&H pass through. While thrilled (for the moment) I must admit to extreme puzzlement. It would seem to be an " out of the frying pan, into the fire" moment. Our heros, though not pureed, are nevertheless plumeting. Is Wally McGyver enough to fashion a quick parachute?

    Passing through a spinning prop (2000+ RPM) and not getting hit. This will have an interesting explanation.

    The blades are made of anti-Amesworth radiation. At low enough spin they attack only non-organics.

    Oh no. They are going where? Off into space? Ditto wall? what about Petey, is he just knocked out? Hope he’s ok.With Wally and Holly’s sense of doom they seem wrapped up in each other! They just have to survive!

    Well, it’s been hinted that something is seriously off about this ship, physics-wise. It wouldn’t surprise me if the actual propulsion method is a hell of a lot more sophisticated than a propeller.

    (This post was on Friday’s page — I’ve made some mods That they made it through is not against the odds) I’ve worked on the size; and my work’s now completer The prop (big surprise!): About 130-meter This means that the blade, to avoid sonic wrecks Must always be made more than point-four secs For each revolution, and since there are 2 One-fifth of a sec between blades might just do Some grim form of death here might not be seen (We all just held our breath!) As they did slip between! Though 160 RPM sounds like not much It’s still rough on Petey — we saw from that “touch” Now all three are freefalling — so Aaron’s where? He’s standing on ceremony, but DID stand on air! =|====/ Level Head Vote for Endtown 2.0 And for Doc Rat, too The Endtown Forum

    Maybe they would be catched by flask with the net again. Because what is a “king” without his people. And now Flask have all cards in her hand.

    Holly: “We made it! We’re safe!”Wally: “Holly, we’re in the stratosphere, plummeting to earth without a parachute.”Holly: “Oh, yeah.”

    I won’t give up on my heroes until they’ve been mowed down with ray guns, disintegrated into dust, trodden all over and finally sucked up into a vacuum cleaner.And even then, I won’t give up!

    The suspense is terrible. I hope it lasts.Aaron left us a clue to their survival in the path line. Notice they spiraled through, while the gun and Petey had a straight path. It looks like they traveled along a vortex that slipped them ahead of the blades and just past.Vortexes are funny things. They help hummingbirds and bumblebees fly by reducing the air pressure above their wings, and hold two beach balls steady above a fan:

    They’re away from the ship. Now they are salvage. Wait for the claw (or net).

    Good morning all. It looks like we’re back into the upper 40’s. Let’s see if we can get back into the 30’s. Please, go vote.Just as I thought, they ended up around the prop instead of through it. But Petey missed the mark (or should I say hit it). Would have thought Petey smarter than that. Hopefully, Petey is just a little stunned and can still save the cat and mouse. Or is AN going to add a little cinematic suppense and go on to AM or Linda or Flask for a bit?

    Nope, I was wrong, THIS is the normal Weekend Cliffhanger. They somehow made it through (which I gather will be explained later), but Petey is now stunned and moving away. There IS time before they hit the ground, but it’s still not a lot… suspense!

    I would think Wally’s tail would be puffed up like a bottle-brush! But maybe the wind is slicking the hair down…

    Hey Aaron, I thought you’d like to know that I just purchased 2 T-shirts. One for my hubby for Father’s Day and one for me. We will wear them with pride. We just love ENDTOWN! :O)Aaron, do you think that maybe you’ll be offering the T-shirts in the Black and White tones like the strip in the near furture? Gosh, I hope so…that would be just smashing. Thanks again, Aaron! :O) You’re one heck of an Artist and Story Teller.

    Again on the Dredd theme, never been interested in buying a T-shirt of the character. Holly in a cheesy pose? Very definitely planning on it next chance I get!

    I doesn’t Look like they went trough the props. It looks like they missed them by quite a bit. But most of you say they Did so I’m probably wrong.

    Let’s see. Wally and Holly appear to be above some pretty tall cloud columns. Terminal velocity for a skydiver is between 53 – 56 ft/sec. Sustainable consciousness is below 12,000 ft., they’re probably below that. So, our heroes have , what, about 3.65 minutes (maximum) before splat…..probably significantly less. Uh, wake up Petey!

    Yeah, but look at the “?!” from Petey in panel 2. Can’t be anything but, “How the heck did they go through it and not end up like pre-sliced pepperoni??”

    There’s kind of a timing challenge with Cafe Press. Right after buying my shirt, they gave me a free shipping coupon for orders over $25, but it’s only good for 3 days. So, if you know that the next shirt is about to be posted and you think you may want it, you can buy the current shirt at the last minute in order to try to take advantage of the coupon.

    Aaron, we wait all weekend to resolve our Friday “cliff-hanger”. ARRGH! It’s gotten worse!

    I’m going to start a “Save Wally & Holly” campaign.

    ;-P Let me know when I can get off the edge of my seat—-and it better NOT be til Friday.

    KUTGW,

    How did they slip through? Aaron Marx would say life is more fun if you don’t have easy answers for anything.

    wonder if its one of those “what you don’t know, can’t hurt you” deals. But with advanced physics applications.
