I’m really sorry about the site outages, everybody! It seems back to normal for now, but I’m hoping to get things properly checked out soon. Thanks for your patience if you’re still sticking around!
It certainly seems to still be acting glitchy for me—partly loading pages and resetting connections and whatnot. Maybe it’ll get better…?
So Scavina’s still fixated on that, no surprise. Because it’s been so long (and poring over the archives is troublesome at the moment), perhaps someone could remind me if *we* the readers saw Jeff Nelson?
I think we saw others from the Hiawatha, but not Jeff.
Well, there were also these shots where we saw things from the POV of someone who wasn’t underground OR controlled by the butterflies of doom, remember? I assumed that was Jeff, which is why I was confused when we jumped away without meeting him?
Bets that Jeff is alive but has moved on from Nelson and has a new wife with kids. It’s the kind of luck Nelson is having (plus it has been foreshadowed).
Is it me, or does this debriefing seem cut short? They should get every detail about the incident, especially the two’s experiences under the drug and their experiences on the Miesti. Especially if Nelson is planning anything about the place in the future.
It depends on how many pages of talking heads you wanted to see before the plot moved on…
It works with pacing, yes, but a little box on the corner saying “half an hour of detailed questions later” or a word balloon over Nelson’s head saying “We’ll continue this later” or “This is a good time for a brake” would acknowledge that not everything was covered.
As for talking heads, that’s Galaxion. The plot isn’t fast-paced and the story is character-interaction focused.
Ouch. That nod. I mean, that’s kind of an inappropriate thing for him to bring up, given she’s the lady in charge (sort of…she’s not actually his superior and Fusella’s got command back…but she’s still an authority figure). Under ordinary circumstances, I’d expect her to react to that, maybe even be a little offended by the breach of (if nothing else) etiquette: “That’s not what I asked.” But she just nods.
And even the lettering sells it. The lowercase (in contrast to the all-caps lettering of the speech balloons) gives it a quiet, dejected feeling.The period (which I don’t recall seeing in other onomatopoeia or faux-onomatopoeia in this comic) give it, if not a finality, at least a resignation. Perhaps I’m reading too much into it?
But in any case, wow, really feeling for Scavina there.
…OTOH, that sort of “reading between the lines” would make perfect sense if he’s still a little bit telepathic.
Given her history, it was hardly an unpredictable intention on her part. And the two know each other for quite some time, even if he is a subordinate. Plus, this is in private as everyone else has left the room. So it is believable that she lets decorum down a little.
YAY! UPDATES!!!! hope for more soon!
with respect and the best of wishes
