Five will get you ten that he’s still thinking of Holly-even after all this time.
Spending his time profitably.
Wally’s not the wild card everyone wants him to be.
Drawing up a plan. Or doing the math on how long this place can survive.
OK here’s how the dream ties in. A wonderful, peaceful place but Wally smells something awful. It starts to fall apart as Wally becomes a part of it. The only options are go down with the Good Ship Lollypop or escape the nightmare.
Hmm, is this still a dream or is Eden Colony so insular that it’s not just the children who haven’t experienced many of the horrors other colonies have? The green sprout Kirbee noticed outside the window is either a clue that what we’re watching isn’t reality or a sign that the outside world is beginning to recover from WWIII.
Forgot Wally is a brilliant engineer. He’ll get that project completed. With rubber bands and a few poker chips, no doubt.
He’s an engineer. He’s lining up the angles and finding out what scary thing they’re really digging tunnels for.
Maybe Wally’s making a list of what they’ll need on the trek.
Perhaps.. it is their reality. Remember, Wally is an Engineer…I recognize that internal focused fervor…Before Wally first came to Endtown, he had rigged a trap for the Topsiders, using what was around him. He devising a plan!
Seems that Fiammata and I are on the some page…with one minor exception, Figuring a better way to dig.
Working on next Friday’s comic.
Writing his memoir – “In a hole in the ground, there lived a mutant”..
Looks like it’s okay for this crew to have a liquid lunch!
Garden of Eden or bio-station GEDN unit 40. Where it all started. Where it may start again.
Writing:all work and no play makes wally a dull boy;all work and no play makes wally a dull boy;all work and no play makes wally a dull boy;all work and no play makes wally a dull boy….
Time for a new adventure as Wally and company leave this community to search for more life and signs, perhaps, that the world is starting to recover and life is adapting. (course the plants could be man (or Endtown) eating plants.)
Heavy irony in the last frame: Wally’s little group “live in their own weird little world” coming from a guy who has likely never left Eden since the meltdown and doesn’t know squat about the world Topside and the other colonies.
So what’s up next: expulsion from the garden?
Endtown Forum still exists. I made an intro post just now.
