    The Paladin readies his charger and goes into the Unknown

    I always loved Al’s look on life. Very logical in the end times, doesn’t get hung up on the little things.

    Death lives in the Big Box, too. It’s not like you’ve escaped it just because you’re in Endtown.

    There’s a cave full of dead from the riots. That’ll free up some resources. Maybe Jackrabbit had that in mind, and plans to engineer more conflicts to relieve pressures. For the greater good.

    Deaths to die, huh. Well, Al should know. Been there, done that as it were. I think it’s fair to say that dying most likely changes your perspective on life. ;-)

    What’s that curse?
    “May you live in interesting times.”

    So what time did the strip go up this morning?

    Worst apocalypse ever. No leather jackets, no hockey masks, no explosions. Just politics. I like my apocalypse better.

    This dialog is beautifully written. The tempo of Endtown rises and falls like ocean waves. Last week, it was Holly in hospital, then Cooper bitching in the bar. Then a fracas in the street with unknown election assistants in the street. A loose thread, with the plot seemingly having lost momentum. And then we take up the slack again: two of the characters, whom we know full well and love, meet properly for the first time at a crisis. One saves the other, and the other sets the first on the road to resolution of his crisis. And once again, the gentle wave is starting its rise. The tempo slowly starts to rise. But how elegantly Mr Neathery encapsulates it in words. Poetical, whimsical, ironic, bitter and resolved. In four panels and ten speech balloons, he has sketched out a new story. The actions, the motivations and the emotions.
    When I read Endtown, some small part inside me weeps, always for one reason or another.

    " I like my apocalypse better."

    What makes you think you’d live long enough to see it?

    It looks like we may be taking another trip out of Endtown and see more of this world. Petey would definitely go with them.

    @dbig 1oohh

    Yes, both you and dadof3 have it right. The question is how does it change you and what do you do to continue.
    Life does continue. You change course and go on.
    This is a prickly decision for Wally.
    Al is displaying what everyone else is feeling. Boredom.
    You can only view so much at the cinema, listen to so much radio, view so much TV.
    But as I say Topside is Suicide given current conditions.
    It may and I think necessary to go topside and take the war to the Topsiders.
    Fight a non linear war. Guerrilla tactics, hit and run, hide around the ruins, make the Topsiders expend huge resources chasing shadows.
    But first things first…..get that damn satellite out of orbit or destroy the ability to communicate with it. Hack the thing and use it themselves. Flask was hacking all over Topsiders. They told her they knew what she was up to. If it can be done once it can be done again and use better tactics to avoid being found.
    If you stay, you stay, either tough it out or make a difference. Not everyone is a Jackrabbit supporter. Right now its two camps. There is room for more.
    I can disagree with Al on one thing. Wally made it as one person. Very hard to find one person in all that desolation. Now have two. Find depleted resources. Avoid patrols. Mutts. Aerial units. Satellite surveillance.
    And Wally did get caught finally. Long time to run but he still got caught. As Wally said
    “Deaths to die.” A good way to put it.

    I never said I’d see it, just as long as there’s more hockey masked bandits roaming the wastelands in supercharged muscle cars and no neck ties and no politics.

    Funny how the Saga of Wally and Holly turned around so completely…
