Guess she gave up on hand grenade subtle and is now going for TeeDee Subtle Plasma Cannon Subtle,.

You've heard the one about the 'good mule' haven't you?
Centcomm 21st Jul 2013, 6:36 PM edit delete reply

just a wee bit :D
Stormwind13 21st Jul 2013, 6:13 PM edit delete reply

And ANOTHER id revealed. He is WELL known in the wastelands. Pity no two people know the SAME person. :-D
cattservant 21st Jul 2013, 6:16 PM edit delete reply

He may have some logistical issues if he ever goes into politics.
Mister Black 22nd Jul 2013, 6:57 AM edit delete reply

Politics? Oh *hell* no. I have standards!

Besides, it's cheaper to just rent them as needed!.
Centcomm 21st Jul 2013, 6:36 PM edit delete reply

well yeah..
cattservant 21st Jul 2013, 6:14 PM edit delete reply

I think Connie has the basics squared away quite nicely!
Centcomm 21st Jul 2013, 6:36 PM edit delete reply

I think so too..
Stormwind13 21st Jul 2013, 6:15 PM edit delete reply

Yeah. Connie has many things figured out, I believe. Including how to stay alive in the wastelands. Stay with Mr. Black! :-D
Centcomm 21st Jul 2013, 6:37 PM edit delete reply

hey its actually pretty safe..
Stormwind13 21st Jul 2013, 6:58 PM edit delete reply

Safe? I dunna think that word means what you think it means (as they get jumped by 3 interceptors). :-D
highlander55 21st Jul 2013, 6:24 PM edit delete reply

I think Connie is more about having not only a meaningful job, but a home of sorts (think RV in our time) with someone who is treating her like she should expect to be treated. And I think she also is attracted to him. Otherwise why explain about having the entertainment package?
Centcomm 21st Jul 2013, 6:37 PM edit delete reply

to motivate him? and yes she wants a home .. a place to belong.
highlander55 21st Jul 2013, 7:43 PM edit delete reply

@ Centcomm..To motivate him! She brought that up for a reason. She also will be trying to figure out just who he really is due to all the different names he has gone by so far. Could be exciting in a way for her. Both personal and sexually.

Being a crew member on board a ship is an ancient and honorable occupation!
cattservant 21st Jul 2013, 6:34 PM edit delete reply

'Double Indemnity'
[New Sparta registry one presumes.]
Centcomm 21st Jul 2013, 6:38 PM edit delete reply

Yep new Sparta registry..
cattservant 21st Jul 2013, 6:44 PM edit delete reply

Where "He knew a guy..."
Centcomm 21st Jul 2013, 6:48 PM edit delete reply

but of course...
antrik 8th Oct 2016, 8:48 PM edit delete reply
"Double Indemnity" is the given name of the ship, I presume? I find it rather hilarious :-)
Stormwind13 21st Jul 2013, 6:59 PM edit delete reply

Anyone else think that Mr. Black is being COY? :-D I mean, Connie wants him to admit she is pretty and he won't do it. Meanie. :-D
cattservant 21st Jul 2013, 7:04 PM edit delete reply

He's just getting his options in working order.
CyberSkull 21st Jul 2013, 7:23 PM edit delete reply

"Bad", "the truth", do we really need to re-hash irrelevant events? I mean, you can't see the scars anymore, can you?

Gee! I was just waxing it...

*Smacks gat again* BAD CAT BAD!

Awww, intercepted at the wrong time - poor Connie - just as she was about to make a move...
Centcomm 22nd Jul 2013, 12:36 PM edit delete reply

yep her luck sucks /... kinda..

Smart man, As the saying goes "Don't stick your pen in the company ink."
Draginbeard 22nd Jul 2013, 6:52 AM edit delete reply

Well, he may or may not be interested in Connie, but right now, I get the impression that the mission is his primary concern. There is business to be done, currency to track, and personal preferences will simply have to wait.
Centcomm 22nd Jul 2013, 7:09 AM edit delete reply

and that is the "right answer" grins ...
KarToon12 22nd Jul 2013, 8:00 AM edit delete reply

How many names has he got? As many as he needs to survive out here.
Centcomm 22nd Jul 2013, 12:36 PM edit delete reply

exactly :D
Stormwind13 22nd Jul 2013, 2:10 PM edit delete reply

Plus one! He always has a backup plan after all. :-D

*certain restrictions apply see store for details must have swarthy looking eye-patch or other trendy optical covering do not go out into direct sunlight after application and don't operate heavy machinery until you reach safe levels not sold in humbolt,bell,brazos and uthe provinces.

After all is said and done about who wants who. He is probably the only Waster who has good hygiene. That had to be a plus considering how may she had a whiff of over the last 6 months.
Dragonrider 22nd Jul 2013, 5:51 PM edit delete reply

@Highlander not sure he is actually a Waster, have a sneaking feeling he has a more comfortable and secure base than our friendly local neighborhood Lunar Spy had and it may well not be in the wastes. Also wonder if the eye patch is really necessary or is part of some persona's he uses. A man with his description and prominent facial features, such as a self adhesive eye patch,would be easily identified by facial recognition software and suddenly boom there go all of Clark Kent's secret identities.This coupled with his somewhat eccentric and antique clothing habits such as the suspenders and dressing like an 1850's riverboat gambler not many traders in the wastes probably fit that profile.
highlander55 22nd Jul 2013, 6:20 PM edit delete reply

I couldn't think of anything more appropriate to call him.His livelihood keeps him out in the wastelands it just seems to fit. Good cover for him as any I guess. I think you are right about him being a lot more than what he seems to be at least on the outside. All of those different names but the same outfit you would think someone would have crossed paths with him. The eye patch could have bionics as well. (Consider the Doctor Who episodes where they are worn as network links,)
Stormwind13 22nd Jul 2013, 6:22 PM edit delete reply

Maybe they did, but did they SURVIVE the encounter is the question? :-)
Centcomm 22nd Jul 2013, 6:25 PM edit delete reply

that outfit is just one of the many he wears.. :D
Stormwind13 28th Jul 2013, 6:27 AM edit delete reply

I JUST noticed something in panel 2... Is this ship ARMED? That sure looks like a weapons turret in panel 2. And not a LITTLE one at that.

I figured they had weapon ports available for small arms fire, but didn't truly expect them to have THAT level of firepower. Possibly some smaller discrete weapons that could be deployed. Certainly not a turret with anti-armor cannons mounted!

That is the only shot I've seen that the barrels were visible in.
Centcomm 28th Jul 2013, 7:47 AM edit delete reply

yep 3 hard points of paired MK 20 beam cannons. they take Anti-Piracy very seriously.
antrik 8th Oct 2016, 8:56 PM edit delete reply
Hehe, "wouldn't want to give my crew a bad impression"... I get the feeling he is thinking of a very specific part of the crew here ;-)
