Much like the USS Enterprise is always the only ship in the sector when trouble arises…
When a comic book is the inspiration to start messing with multiple realities, a whole lot of trouble is going to happen. Murphy’s Law should not be underestimated.
Sounds as if someone’s been smoking Michael Moorcock again? Watch out for anyone called Jerry!
Infinite Improbability… can it be used to drive a starship?
The more plot-characters you put in one room, the more plot actually happens. And if you have a good side-character, they could get their own spin-off like how JAG made the very successful spin-off NCIS, as well as it’s additional series of shows.
Alan’s expression in the third panel is priceless.
that explains the cold open to this arc
So what purpose did the Eden Project serve originally, before it was corrupted to this purpose?
Hmmm, I wonder if this is a Marx brothers plot…
And this solves the Topsider problems by…….??
Do the Topsiders know of the existence of Marx?
Still waiting for what will happen to Wally and his companions next.
Who would knowingly agree to have their mind wipe? That sounds very unethical.
TIE SIDs of unusual size. They talked about those in the Princess Bride. To combat them, you need TIE fighters.
Deliberately left as a clue…by whom?
I was amazed to see this strip appear yesterday, considering the conditions where Mr. Neathery lives. A good portion of the state didn’t even have electricity…or heat. Well done!
I keep going back to, why was Holly, the main character, taken out of the equation so early on..?
So – the Marxes were gathering the Cardoodles in Eden. Does this mean Marx is a topsider? Where are the Cardoodles he gathered? Are they here in this Topsider establishment? I am trying to compute and failing!
Statistical Improbability or what the layman would simply call “dumb luck” is something I always thought was greatly weighted on a quantum level through entanglement and the spin of certain particles. Interesting to see such a heady subject it explained in comic form.
…here, we go into the argument of fate/destiny vs. pure random chance…
…’ there are no coincidences versus everything is a coincidence…
…a good strategist vs. a good team makes it’s own luck…
… not mutually exclusive are they?…
OK, they’re explaining all this to the crew for what purpose? What do they want from them?
Let’s guess what happens next: a) hell breaks loose in the facility due to the Eye and our heroes will be “forgotten” in the ensuing chaos b) Wally will find a way using the lab’s equipment to get back to Eden in the hope to save his new family c) the monsters get out of the lab and start another apocalypse?
alikgator: Has Wally already forgotten Kirby? At what point were his memories “wiped”?
Poor Aaron is having trouble even keeping to his every third day schedule. I hope things are not going too bad for him much longer :-(
Last I heard from Aaron was Feb 19, when he thanked me for raising my Patreon donation.
Does anyone know if Aaron’s in the part of Texas that lost power and/or water?
Hope AAron is doing ok in the Texas chaos.
Yep, that defines Wally’s life: Statistically improbable and unusual.
Houston lost power early morning Feb. 15. It was totally out Feb. 15,16. Feb. 17 it came back intermittantly for some areas—on a few hours/off a few hours. It came back sometime that night…for most customers I think. In the meantime, broken water mains caused water shut off. When water returned, it had to be boiled before using until 3pm Feb. 21 when the boil notice was lifted. Return of services citywide doesn’t mean return of local seevices. If apartment property pipes or power were broken, then renters there may not have services. Houston covers a huge area of unzoned communities, so “mileage may vary” depending on where you live.
