    I can’t wait to see where this takes us, in the words of The Doctor: ‘Allons-y!’

    An intriguing admission in Jim’s tossed-off phrase
    They don’t own the planet now! Who could it be?
    If they need to “take” it, then one of these days
    We’ll learn of one more group. Are there more than three?

    Ok, so maybe the reason for putting up the satellite had nothing to do with finding local mutants. Endtown is safe for now, and completely unaware of that.

    Is east toward the sunrise or sunset on the endtown planet?

    It looks like it was night a couple of strips ago, so I’d guess sunrise.

    About the time I got kicked out of federal service a new archean that photosynthesized had been found in the euphotic zone of the oceans. Given the sheer amount of phytoplankton and other photosynthesizing organisms, it might actually be possible to have no photosynthesis on land and still have a breatheable atmosphere. Some years back the estimate was made the forests east of the Mississippi serving to use at least 4 times the CO2 the U.S. produces. Given that an acre of forest in the U.S. puts on 500 to 2000 board feet per year, that calculation is in error, with a much greater mass of carbon being incorporated into woody tissue. And of course that doesn’t count farms, shrubs, and forbs converting carbon into cellulose, hemicellulose, pectin, etc.

    East is towards the sunrise.

    I don’t know the exact figures but yes, the majority of our oxygen comes from the oceans of the world. Land plants make a small fraction.

    Nailed it.
    Endtowners being on foot, they haven’t been able to travel far enough to find anything outside the waste.
    Or the ones that do…Never return.

    Is it me or does this seems like a Logan’s Run parallel? Looking for Sanctuary? I hope they don’t run into Box!

    I wonder if mutation and transformation extended to any of these “largely intact regions.”

    I was thinking more of Flash Gordon with the wildly different warring kingdoms of Mongo. Or the post apocalyptic world of Kamandi, where anything could be just over the hill thanks to the hyperactive imagination of Jack Kirby.

    Now I’m very intrigued, I really hadn’t thought there had been anything beyond the great wastes left, save maybe a few patches no bigger than a city block or two. But this is actually good news, because it means the world CAN potentially be salvaged and renewed in due time. It’ll probably take a couple centuries, but it could, in theory, be done, assuming what’s in these intact regions and how big they are.

    But now that I think about it, it is kind of obvious there would be, otherwise, yeah, breathable air would start running out pretty quick. Can’t believe I didn’t think of that before…but then again, it is a comic featuring anthropomorphic critters, so…

    Jenner of the webcomic Doc Rat recommended this strip to me.

    I’m intrigued by Jim’s “Outside our borders…” and his suggestion that Topsiders are not uncommon outside of said borders. Whose borders is he talking about? If he means the Topsiders boarders, that suggests that the TS are limiting themselves to a certain area that they believe they can control and there is something out there that they are sending troops to fight. Otherwise it suggests that the TS are somewhat balkanized and Jim’s group controls an area in the great wastes. I’ll be curious to see how this goes.
