The limits on the length of the title description are messing with the new format I've adopted for strip post titles and it's making me very cross.

Armitage reference there for anyone in the know.


Also more than 2 assassin bots on the ground there. Further confirmation that I was right.

Being right.

It's what's hip.

Either he didn't notice the noncompliance, or he heard and didn't care (my babies).

No matter how damaged you are, to the brink of even death, never EVER let some cishet scum oppressor assist you in any way because he'll ALWAYS have ulterior motives. If I were broken and dying on the floor, I'd rather die than let some tool of the patriarchy so much as touch me. This is why I only go to womyn doctors.

This was a good strip. Kam approves.

Damn, two panels of a spark of possible "humanity" and conscience, and then right on back to remote control destruct. Sad

I didn't really see it as him empathising with them as people, it's more like the way you'd talk to your phone after you cracked its screen. Technology gets "restored" people do not. At least not in this context.

When he said "fix" the remote destruct, did he mean fix as in "reset to prior factory conditions so we can blow you up if we want to" or "set so that no one can do this to you again"? The "Oh, my babies" makes me wonder. Milton doesn't want his creations destroyed. He hasn't the guts to stand up to Blue, but he might go behind her back.

Did Tat ever consider that this isn't riveting?

I'm sure he's aware that we're bored to tears and resorting to personal attacks to keep ourselves entertained, but he simply doesn't give a shit. It's been pointed out before: His comic, his story, his rules. We like it or we lump it.

Reading Milton's dialogue, the only way it makes sense to me is if he's re-enabling the remote self-destruct. If he wanted it disabled, he wouldn't be doing anything. If he wanted to remove it, he'd say remove, not fix. Similarly if he was going to disable it.

So, fucking creep who still wants to control women and hold the power of death over them, even after they let him live and walked away.

I can't see it going well, though, if his victims are still refusing to comply.

Still, it'll be interesting to see how far Tat takes this.

You're probably right. I just had an electrified hope on first reading the strip that Milton might be saying, "Yeah, I'll just go and 'fix' that, all right."

"A man is trying to help us. Continue to press the (broken) self destruct in a show of female power instead of accepting his help."
I think there's a few more things wrong In Denmark then the self destruct.

I hear in the USA you can get different explosives inserted into you based on your price range. Thermite, plastique and even sacks of napalm for creating an inferno when you're exploded. In Canada we just all get the same dynamite. Goddamn socialized medicine.

I'm not sure what you're talking about. Milton isn't trying to help them, he's trying to restore them to their original state as tools of Devil Corp (which may be help in his mind, but judging by the dialogue isn't to them). And they're not self-destructing, or attempting to self-destruct, they're dying from the battle with the bots that likewise litter the ground.
