I love the smile on Lil'E's face at the end, when he finds Pebbles again.

But I have the sinking feeling that she's going to just say "Oh, it's you. Hi!" and then chase off after something interesting that catches her eye...


Can be worse. If they're right after the MMXIII explostion site, the feel might make them react weirdly.
Maybe fembot recognizing the horns and doing something Twisted Evil .

Hmm. Looks like I'm in the mood for some bad mischief. I'll come back later.

Great, now all I can think of is ways that Tat could make something terrible happen with this relationship. I'm far too good at this, considering the question I always ask myself when writing characters and stories is "how could I make this worse?"

The most likely tragic scenario in my mind would be that Pebbles forgot who Lil'E was due to her being not entirely there, mentally.

Then Lil'E is crushed when he finds his best friend doesn't know who he is.

Of course, there's a good chance that won't happen and Tat will decide to leave our heartstrings somewhat tattered but not entirely destroyed.

Ok, here's a slightly better view: they all gather together to raid the factory, shut down production lines (or alter the programming if you wish), all with the inside help of Milton conveniently looking away/opening doors. All concluding in an epic escape from the devil in the form of a double sunday strip.

Aaaaand now I kinda want this to happen too Embarassed .

That's pretty much what my subconscious does with real relationships...

the only thing i can think of is that pebbles might want to include her new friend rogue, and li'l e might feel like he was being displaced - but i can't believe she would do anything to make him think she didn't like him any more (which is what he was afraid of).

For those from cultures that read left-to-right, images where the action is happening towards the left tend to read as more ominous, or against the grain.

In two panels in this strip, we have a very sympathetic character turning to a light on the left.

That on top of the black-heavy composition, and the fact that Pebble's pose at the very visual end is neutral-to-down, and it makes perfect sense to get an ominous feeling from it.

I just read it as the recently-bomfed lamp leading him back. It might help that Tat's little thingy mentions guiding light.

The trouble is that the last panel looks like a shot from a Sergio Leone film.

I wonder if the demon light is secretly doing good?

First knocking death off his ride, the guiding light tagline, and now reuniting Lil'E with Pebbles.

Though she does seem to be in an oddly aggressive stance, imo.

I don't think Pebbles would forget! She's gone all the way down to Hell for him, and anyways she remembered Sebastian Francis (?) after all this time.

since pebbles created it, i wouldn't be surprised if it followed her orientation - which seems to be more along the lines of 'chaotic good' rather than any version of evil.
