Somebody's insurance rates gonna go up, unless he's got accident forgiveness.
Morituri 19th Jan 2022, 9:32 AM edit delete reply
You don't file that with insurance; that's no accident. That's not what insurance is for.

What you do is expense it as supplies and equipment, to the people paying the bounty.

Their terms may or may not cover it, but put it where it's due. He didn't lose it accidentally, he spent that bike in order to accomplish his mission.
Kiddeagle 19th Jan 2022, 4:12 PM edit delete reply
Who said the bike was spent? From the angle on windows 4 & 5 it looks like he swung the back of the bike around to slam the shitwhistle not run into it directly
Centcomm 20th Jan 2022, 2:03 AM edit delete reply

Correct.. the bike took it on the most durable section and the goldiebot does not weigh enough to cause more damage than hitting a human in armor as you can see the bike just picked him up with the side swipe.
Nystran 23rd Jan 2022, 1:52 AM edit delete reply
What mission? If I recall correctly, this was not his mission, but a self-chosen side-quest.

You don't understand. I'm not damning the torpedoes. I AM the torpedo!
Ryu Santos 19th Jan 2022, 1:47 AM edit delete reply

Another villain that talks to much.
Oldarmourer 19th Jan 2022, 4:17 AM edit delete reply
If brute force and ignorance doesn't work, you're obviously not using enough of it ;)

or... don't hit it harder, get a bigger hammer

Love the "No, come back" line :) I tittered, out loud.

Energy Screen - 0
Grav Bike - 1

Come back indeed . . . Not

Luckily that spinal column armour and ball joint going to the helmet look like they were designed for just such a tactic ;)

megados 22nd Jan 2022, 6:08 AM edit delete reply

It looks like he's just gonna scratch up the lower right rear housing a little. :D
Johninaustin 19th Jan 2022, 11:18 AM edit delete reply
Ohh, I HAVE to figure a way to work "shitwhistle" into my everyday vocabulary.

It would probably work in those situations where "Twatwaffle" does not apply.
Centcomm 20th Jan 2022, 2:01 AM edit delete reply

Rose comes up with some good ones!
Oldarmourer 20th Jan 2022, 9:51 AM edit delete reply
are you sure she never worked on aircraft ? she comes pretty close to 'plane fixin' words' ;)
jawbone 27th Jan 2022, 6:51 PM edit delete reply

Try "buttnugget"as well. It's a gift from Team Fizzball.

Reminds me of SG-1: Col. O'Neal uses a thrown knife on Horace's palm device.
Lost Dutchman 19th Jan 2022, 1:33 PM edit delete reply
Correction, It was Heru'ur not Horace. Getting my System Lords confused
Rocket Fueled 20th Jan 2022, 1:05 PM edit delete reply

Yeah, low-tech for the win. Like shotguns against the Replicators.
Oldarmourer 21st Jan 2022, 9:09 AM edit delete reply
no matter how many layers of shields or deflectors there are..."rocks fall, everyone dies"
DLKmusic 19th Jan 2022, 3:17 PM edit delete reply

Love the art, but...


This is why we love you, Rose!!!!
Centcomm 20th Jan 2022, 2:00 AM edit delete reply

Actually all the scripting is Rose this original page was 'slient' I loved what she did with this!!!

As a wise old Master Chief Boatswain's Mate once said to me:

"You don't gotta swing the big hammer as hard as you can...

"But there's a limit to how hard you can hit with the little hammer."
Centcomm 20th Jan 2022, 2:01 AM edit delete reply

very true!
Marcus Ramesy 20th Jan 2022, 7:13 AM edit delete reply

when in doubt, get a bigger hammer.... its always worked for me.
megados 22nd Jan 2022, 6:20 AM edit delete reply

That's why they come in so many different sizes! :D
Oldarmourer 20th Jan 2022, 9:53 AM edit delete reply
Now do a quick pivot turn and hit the afterburner :)

I loved the shots and shield onomatopoeia. The shield visual was pretty cool as well.
Rocket Fueled 20th Jan 2022, 12:32 PM edit delete reply

I'm trying to figure out what the license plate on the bike says. "Pogue"? "Rogue"? What does everyone think?
Gilrandir 20th Jan 2022, 12:37 PM edit delete reply
I'm pretty sure it says "Rogue". If you zoom in you can see both descenders for the R, obscured somewhat by the sound effect.
Rocket Fueled 20th Jan 2022, 12:41 PM edit delete reply

Sure enough! I should have thought to zoom.
Ebonbolt 20th Jan 2022, 2:09 PM edit delete reply

Darn. If he'd only caught goldenrod a bit further back on the bike, he could have goosed the vertical and bounced the shitwhistle off the ground, too. Oh, well. Boot to the head option is still viable (not much damage, but insulting).
Oldarmourer 21st Jan 2022, 9:07 AM edit delete reply
Ah, but is our Ranger versed in the art of Tae-Kwan-Leap ?
StellarJay 21st Jan 2022, 7:53 PM edit delete reply

Boot to the head!
Kiddeagle 25th Jan 2022, 12:59 PM edit delete reply
ain't no shielding on the top of his head now. take the shot.
Mac 21st Jan 2022, 10:30 AM edit delete reply
Is that going to leave a mark?

Hoping it will
Rashala 21st Jan 2022, 11:51 PM edit delete reply

When your gun fails......floor it and just run em over. Beep beep jerk!

(Sorry to be a bother, but it seems that Save My Place has been broken for a while now.

The specific error is:

Uncaught ReferenceError: savePlace is not defined

but this comes after a lot of warning about trying to load mixed content (secure and non-secure) in a secure page.
Possibly relevant:

Blocked loading mixed active content “”

I'm guessing the URLs to the resources should either all be https rather than http, or maybe just omit the protocol entirely,
e.g. "//" would use http from http, but https from https.)
Centcomm 25th Jan 2022, 4:15 PM edit delete reply

thats a comic fury thing.. i cant fix it.
bilog78 26th Jan 2022, 2:20 AM edit delete reply
Damn, it's a real bother. It's weird because this is the only comic that seems to be affected. Is this a template issue? Anybody I can contact about it?
jawbone 27th Jan 2022, 6:55 PM edit delete reply

I just use browser bookmarks instead.
