For help on how to follow a comic title,
Or a few clothes-destroying explosions.
When someone writes a goodbye note on the back of their Food Pill ration box, that’s a pretty solid goodbye. (Long live Wally and Holly.)
Wow. That went from Yay Wally, to “Farewell to the most bittersweet rivalry this side of Waterloo.” Cracky goes from stock character to “Endless years of dedicated Tom-and-Jerry effort undone by love.” This is surprisingly impactful, Aaron, and Crackinsky still slips in a last unfunny punchline.
He’s got a bit of a hangover, but Wally just needs to sleep it off. And all the running away from the Certain Death that Marx gets them in and-or out of will be just what he needs to tire him out. He’ll be fine, he just expelled remnants of a different dimension and possibly the liquefied remains of a fictional character onto Marx’s shoes. Nothing unusual, people have surely hallucinated worse in the Endtown hospital.
And how long did it take them to shut up about The Titanic? Still has diehards? There you go, then.
He didn’t explode, we didn’t explode. Must’a worked. That’s one useful hyperchronometer. Grab the puma and little brother, a spare Holly, and make for the exit.
Ah, the text was fixed! Thanks be to Aaron. I recognize some of that, like a few lines are a salute to great speeches of Olde. Henry the 5th, Saint Cripsin’s day speech. Excellent art, looks like something from Dupis or the old comics about princes wandering about. Nice shading on the tunics, spears, etc, and the horse.
There’s always that bit about the guy who just made it up on the spot, and then there’s the bit about having good reason that he made it up on the spot!
I always thought that Endtown’s dimensional heterodyning via “weird bombs” needed explaining. “Let’s use a cross-dimensional explosion to open a portal to the inside of a pants-full of exploding cartoon dynamite, and call it a warhead.” was not something that I had expected back then.
