Well at least the trooper is not a complete ogre. The bigot though is another matter. Is it just me or is the more human of the two in that last panel the gynoid?

Black and the rest better hurry back, or things are gonna get sticky!

I believe that they have arrived in Nova Roma, Draginbeard. They aren't still in Atha for sure. Not with the guards. So I don't think anyone has wandered off. Maybe been CARTED off, but not wandered off.

Hopefully we will find out exactly where the others are. And why they are leaving poor Connie alone to deal with this ogre by herself.
Tokyo Rose 9th Dec 2014, 11:40 PM edit delete reply

Yeah, Connie mentioned back during her personal journey entry that they're in Nova Roma now.
Draginbeard 10th Dec 2014, 12:36 AM edit delete reply

Yeah, knew what part of the world they were parked in, I meant Black needs to get back to the ship, on the bounce, even.

And now it starts to get really interesting for Connie unfortunately!

LOL Rash. That would be JUSTICE alright. Sadly, I don't think we are going to get to see it though. I don't think Connie is done being man-handled and verbally abused.

Having already done a wall of text on speculation, I think I will watch and see what develops. It will be interesting to note how close the readers have been to anticipating the next several pages.

Yes, you have our full attention!

Spent twenty years in the military, goofs like him are always with us.

At least Judge Dredd's brother there has a bit more sense than the caveman.

Pity and cowardice dwell in the same house? what the hell?

I didn't want to go there, but I think this creep has got a sexual thing for Connie, and is compensating because it goes against everything he believes in.

Even in the future, we have to live with these creeps
Tokyo Rose 9th Dec 2014, 11:52 PM edit delete reply

Notice that even the trooper's thinking "wtf?" at that line.

Gah, why does it always come down to sex with you people?! ;D Don't go there. If someone suggested to this side of beef that he's got a hard-on for Connie, he'd react as if he'd been accused of banging farm animals or little kids. He'd find the idea of intercourse with a non-human to be utterly sickening and loathsome. He doesn't see a cute girl when he looks at Connie; he sees a sinister, artificial monstrosity that's all the more repulsive for its blatant imitation of the human form. Her fear and pain don't turn him on, they just disgust him all the more because he sees them as more fakery, an attempt to manipulate and play on the sympathies of actual humans.

Seriously, didn't we make this dude hateful enough? Does he have to be all sex-creepy too? >_<
Sheela 10th Dec 2014, 4:50 AM edit delete reply

I'm sure adding sexual creepiness to his laundry list of bad sides is a way for people to vilyfy him even more, so they can be "justified" in coming up with even worse things to do to him.

I swear, people are so bloodthirsty these days, it's almost scary.
velvetsanity 10th Dec 2014, 7:06 AM edit delete reply

I think the idea comes down to a concept similar to that of homophobia being partly caused by people fearing something they see in themselves. The idea is that they're taught that it's wrong/bad/evil/sin, yet deep down in their subconscious they're afraid that they're that way, too. In his case, attractiveness in an android cranks his fear and paranoia to a higher level, for fear that he might actually find himself attracted to one in violation of his deeply held prejudices.

In other words, she's his 'type', at least in appearance, but she's an android, which he believes are the most evil things on two legs (when we all know that drekhead alone *fills* the entire top ten list of most evil creatures in existence that have appeared in the comic lol)
DLKmusic 10th Dec 2014, 9:48 AM edit delete reply

Thanks Velvet... Exactly!

And for the record, Rose, one of the things I admire most about this comic is the lack of gratuitous Sex or Nudity. I've always thought you and Cent did a great job making sure you stayed on the "tasteful" side of the line (with the possible exception of the guy who was torturing Minx et. al. when we first met her... THAT guy creeped me out something bad).
Tokyo Rose 10th Dec 2014, 2:59 PM edit delete reply

Thank you! :)

Minx's nemesis was intended to be gross, creepy, and offensive on pretty much every level. We used up a big share of our "Oh God No Eew" allowance on that dude.
Stormwind13 10th Dec 2014, 6:29 PM edit delete reply

Well you succeeded entirely TOO well for my peace of mind, Rose. And used up about my LIFETIME of EEW with that guy. :-P

"Gah, why does it always come down to sex with you people?!"

Tokyo Rose, this is the Internet. What do you expect. Do you have any idea how many male and female connectors every comment goes through, going from us to DC's web host? Multiply that by the number of people who visit the page after the comment is posted.

You should be amazed that some comments Don't involve sex. ;)

We are now at Def Com launch + 60 seconds, would hope Mr Black or whoever he is this week gets his @$$ in here rapidly otherwise all that will be left will be some purple hair in the garbage. Also suggest that the Asian Hologram make itself useful for a change and stop this now. BTW guess who gets my vote as loudmouth of the year?
Sheela 10th Dec 2014, 4:50 AM edit delete reply

Prince Douchebag ?
Stormwind13 10th Dec 2014, 6:31 PM edit delete reply

I don't think we've SEEN Douchebag this year, Sheela. So not sure we can vote him as loudmouth of the year. I mean, Prince Not Appearing In This Year isn't the loudest person for the year to me. :-D
mjkj 10th Dec 2014, 1:43 AM edit delete reply

*hugs poor Connie*

I hope support for Connie will show up soon...

PS: I totally agree with the alt text :D

Sheela 10th Dec 2014, 4:52 AM edit delete reply

Well, maybe she gets to be a mockingbird, with a screwdriver in hand 'n' everything ?

Ofcourse, that would mean she would have to be tortured by Mister Jackass first ...
DizzasterJuice 10th Dec 2014, 7:50 AM edit delete reply

Damn caveman, objectifying women like that.
Hey in that last shot you should've zoomed in on her ass, just saying. lol
Tokyo Rose 10th Dec 2014, 3:03 PM edit delete reply

From his perspective, he's not objectifying a woman, he's objectifying an object that has been unduly anthropomorphized by others.

From everyone else's perspective, he's an asshole. (I actually refer to him as "Sergeant Asshole" in my scripting.)
Stormwind13 10th Dec 2014, 6:31 PM edit delete reply

Yeah, that title seems to be entirely too appropriate for this guy, Rose.
bilateralcomics 11th Dec 2014, 6:21 AM edit delete reply

Is it possible to objectify and object? Isn't the situation of it already being an object objectification enough? XD
highlander55 11th Dec 2014, 6:49 PM edit delete reply

@ Rose.. Just like the guy who walks away after talking to people and he's thinking "I must look awesome because they say What an Ass!"
Hornet 11th Dec 2014, 7:58 AM edit delete reply
Tries bribing helmet-head with a donut if he'll shoot Sergeant Asshole in the back.
