    It’s not often a man will come at you with an axe for making a pass at his widow.

    Watch it with that thing, Lyn. You’ll lose an eye… I mean… sorry, bad taste.

    Ashes to Ashes (Endtown version)
    By Jenner
    Based on Ashes to Ashes by David Bowie

    Do you remember a hero cat
    In a long-ago story?
    He learned the secret of Apex Industries.
    Oh no, don’t say it’s true.

    He got a message in a ditto film:
    “Dear Wally, where’s your Holly now?”
    I’ve lived through Apocalypse once,
    Now I’ll get paid double time.

    The end of the world again’s killing me,
    But I’ll help where it meets my ability,
    And you really can’t see me, or maybe you know.
    Live in hope that I’ll wake from this vision of woe, oh…

    Ashes to ashes, dust to dusty,
    Amesworth radiation’s nasty.
    Desert and death on high,
    Leaving Endtown below.

    Time and again I tell myself
    “Don’t dream tonight”
    But the video nasty’s following me,
    Oh no, turn it off

    I’m trapped in a terrible end.
    “Dear Wally, where’s your Holly now?”
    One flash of light and it’s all smoke and rubble.

    I’ve never done good things.
    I’ve never done bad things.
    I never intended for Holly to fall.
    Never asked to take a life,
    Wanted to spare them all.

    Ashes to ashes, dust to dusty,
    Amesworth radiation’s nasty.
    Desert and death on high,
    Leaving Endtown below.

    Ashes to ashes…

  7. Jenner GoComics Pro Member commented on Endtown 13 days ago

    In the first Endtown story, Sparkplug Sanders was repeatedly tormented by dittos as they took him through a replay of his traumatic memories time and time again. It Eas implied that they showed him the visuals only, and his memories filled in the words.
    In the second story, Wally was shown a video of his own traumatic memories, which he viewed with Holly present. He narrated them to her, as once again there seems to have been no sound. Nor did he have any ability to turn the memory replay off. However, the pictures were insubstantial. At one stage, a truck passed straight through them.
    Dittos can create doppelgangers of anything a person can imagine, even (or especially) something he is not expecting to see. However, as they are blobs of very little mass, the creatures are barely-substantial shells. Their greatest effect is to trick or panic the subject into a mistake. That’s what we know so far.
    Now, we are dealing with a situation where it is possible these rules may not apply anymore. Or they may. Or they may not. You can’t be actually harmed. Or maybe you can. Would you bet your life on it?
    I’m beginning to think this whole set-up is crafted to turn Wally into someone more suited to comforting Holly’s broken soul.
    You never know what to expect with Neathery’s stories. In that regard, Endtown is not the fare to suit everyone’s tastes. They’re not an end-of-a-working-day-sheer-me-up. But they are masterpieces.

    Has anyone considered that the whole of this screenplay has been for Wally’s benefit alone, and that Kirbee, Chic and Irving were illusions? When this all fades away, we’ll be left with an empty room with just Wally and Holly?

  9. Jenner GoComics Pro Member commented on Endtown 15 days ago

    That;s a thoughtful analysis. Clever.

    You know, I really think it’s time to wake up, Wally… Wake uo, Wally… Wake up, Wally…
