Well SHIT. He just got done thawing that thing out.

At least Those Fucking Glasses are gone, I guess.

Well... this is going to take some thinking through. Some frames -- I'm still working out what's happening.

Sleaze has his glasses back. Don't know where Slick's are.

I presume that was Slick's heart that he sacrificed on the altar -- and the glitter points released.

Panel 6 -- breaking into the safe where Slick keeps his heart, yes?

Panel 9 -- Sleaze has... gone through the computer screen?

As PX watches -- where is she watching from?

Her face when she sees Slick's heart smashed -- perhaps her sympathies will be with him instead of waving firearms in his face.

And here I was hoping the Executioner (a.k.a. Porno Man) got swept away for good in that flood.

Nah, it was just Apocalypse Play. I'm sure he figured out the safeword after about 40 days and 40 nights.


Didn't actually realize the implications of the glitter at first. His modicum of decency is being sacrificed to the Cult's idea of masculinity.

Wonder if PX will tell everyone, or even if she'll figure out what exactly happened.

Huh.
Not that I'm blaming PX, but I wonder if she understands how her scaring Slick into fainting allowed all this to happen.
I mean, 'cause then she' might have some stake in trying to fix him rather than simply condemn him. He was trying to get better and I have no idea if he'll even be able to care about getting better after this.

Also, the shift from pink to blue is probably not just for aesthetic reasons.

The last image of PX in the screen, the blue is taking over her predominantly pink screen. In the last panel, it's Sleaze (or at least his glasses) looking out of the screen.

To be fair, he was trying to get better till he found those glasses, at which point he stopped and was just a massive prick again. Maybe things could be different now that the glasses are gone. But yeah, with the heart gone too, I'm not sure.

Also, wonder if we'll see Slick's eyes, now that he has neither Those Fucking Glasses or his shades. The answer is no, but I figured I'd mention the vague possibility. More likely Tat will wrench some comedy out of him trying to get to the store to buy another pair.

Sooo Pix gave Slick a heart attack and he's hallucinating an in-game-movie of Sonic the Hedgehog?
Well, that makes more sense than this whole haunted Matrix-internet rubbish.

I know I'm wrong in this, but usually when Sleeze/kcilS did something to his heart Slick had a reaction to it, like his chest PAINING when it was worthless for Sleeze to use to buy something in 'Mirrorland' and he kicked it or stomped it or something.

This time it got shattered by an AXE... Slick isn't moving in that last panel.... I know I'm probably wrong, but that's a pretty dark death scene if I'm right.

How could she? I don't understand what just happened (the fact that I've stopped caring simplifies things immensely) and I know a lot more about Slick and Devil Slick than PX does.

Slick used to be made of sterner stuff.

Wait, was that a metaphor for Slick getting his 'fix'? As in, giving in to porn again, costing him all his 'decency-points'?

The glitter of good deeds combining with the symbol of masculinity is very important indicator for things to come later in the plotline.

The confusing thing is that the comic does not clearly indicate whether the glitter is taking control over the symbol of masculinity, or does the masculinity take control over the glitter.

If the first option, then the glitter (which is also a symbol of hope) will slowly transform the cult of masculinity from the inside into doing good deeds.

If the second option, then the cult of masculinity might begin to use good deeds as a cunning decoy mask to further drive forward it's own agenda.

Remains to be seen.

This is my question. What actually happened here? Like from a metaphor perspective? Is it possible for you to have to submit to having your heart destroyed against your will?
