    Yes, the old “secret side door” trick!

    I’m surprised they didn’t use the old “blindfold” trick and the “secret sidedoor trick”

    In any real world situation, Overkill would have only himself to blame for an impostor getting $50,000,000.

    First off, fraud or no, unless “Karzai” would accept a check (very unlikely), Jeff couldn’t have just handed him $50,000,000 in cash. Even in all $100 bills (and assuming no air space between the bills), a mass of money of that amount would be a block of about 20 cubic feet (approx. 2.75 feet on a side) and weigh about 1100 pounds. Somewhat unwieldy a mass, even if broken down to smaller units.

    Yes, there are bank accounts in various countries to which funds could be transferred, but I think it unlikely Overkill would give Jeff authority to transfer that much money anywhere – assuming Jeff even knew how to do it. So, someone in Overkill’s organization had to transfer it for him once the “deal” was struck. Jeff couldn’t have done this by himself.

    Yeah, I know this is just a comic, but still …

    Well, it only stands to reason…. an imposter gave the money away to an imposter. Sounds like justice to me.

    Actually, overkill might send Redfern on a mission to recover the money, thus giving him the chance to make his legend real…or completely destroying the mystique via the usual monumental catastrophe…

    why Redfern is still alive is a great mystery.

    I have every confidence that the Red Rascal will think of an incredibly brilliant way to get the money back from the impostors, get it to Karzai, thus restoring Overkill’s faith in him.

    I’m also confident that Redfern will blow it, somehow.

    Clearly Overkill gave Doofus $50,000,000 in counterfeit bills…

    I’m backing the Prfesser on this one… GT has dasterdly plan afoot… ‘s why he ‘s The Boss…, not us!

    Following a plot is hard enough – formulating one is genius!

    Enjoyed the artist’s interview on John Stewart the other night. Since I didn’t start reading Doonesbury forty years ago, I had no idea there were so many characters. Also the reason I have trouble following some of the story lines.
