It’s a Psychobilly Freakout! -Pt2

I know I say this too much, but I do appreciate the patience of my readership. Thank you guys. :) Everything's going great after surgery. I'm exactly a month out now. Really mild discomfort at times, but the only real challenge is overcoming fatigue, which can hit me like a truck at certain times of the day. Next comic is around 30% done. Up Friday.

  1. The only problem is I’ve had Psychobilly Freakout stuck in my head for a while now…which really isnt a problem if you ask me

    1. Heh, I was thinking the same thing, but she’s probably got a barrel that’s design specifically for those purposes, some weird, semiflexible polymer alloy that’s rigid enough for accuracy, but can be used for melee and vaulting at the same time.

        1. You joke, but I’ve seen people spend more on custom rifle parts than I have budgeted to purchase a new home.

      1. Carbon fiber, maybe? Could that handle the explosive pressure of a large-caliber rifle round yet still be flexible enough to pole-vault with? Maybe it’s just the initial few inches of the barrel that really needs to be steel?

    2. The better question is why Summer’s leg is just a prosthetic? If her gun barrel can be used for pole vaulting then her leg should have built in guidance missiles, a gatling gun, or the leg equivalent of a Power Fist…Power Foot?

      1. I like where you’re going with this. The guided missiles would be go, but shooting any other kind of projectile would be, ah, shooting herself in the foot? “Hold still, I need to attain the Crane attack position.”

        1. Tripod with wheels? But yeah, what about a blade or blades that attach to the toe and heel?

      2. Because two reasons.

        1. D52, what’s left of it, is poorer than a stack of dead beggars. Only two of them actually own a car. Money for fancy prosthetics is probably not in the budget.

        2. D52 has either lost or never actually had a Gadgeteer Genius on hand to cobble something like that together out of random-ass spare parts.

        So no fancy new leg for Summer the Serious.

        1. Summer could join a League of Sexy Female Assassins, I hear there are a lot of Organizations around.

        1. Given the pressures that heat that a gun barrel goes through, and the fact that it has to be stiff enough to not move while firing, that barrel’s done. Though a barrel thick enough for a sniper rifle like that wouldn’t have that much flex in it. It’d shatter before bending that much. And composites tend to break down quickly if they don’t explode on the first shot.

        1. Torrid like the movie “Bound”. I keep seeing Summer as played by Gina Gershon. And that makes Tarra played by Jenifer Tilly.

    1. Motion to amend the rules of first to include the following in Articles of first, Article XIV, Paragraph 17, sub section c, sub heading iii:

      “And to whomever shall make the mention of EAT BACON in a post to the author, that person shall therefore be acknowledged as having the official SECOND post to the comments section irregardless of continuity of hierarchy of readers having posted to the current installment of SHOTGUN SHUFFLE and the in the immediately previous installment as “The one who went home after thereupon directing a minion to go that way” or Bob, whichever of the two may occupy the slot as best resonant ed ing.

  3. Um… the reckless disregard for conservation of mass aside… wouldn’t it have just been easier to put the extendo-pole in her prosthetic pole-like leg instead of using the barrel of a sniper rifle to pole vault?

  4. Calls herself “the Serious” but has a gun she can pole vault with. By the way, I’m going to use that in D&D at some point.

  5. Thinking on it. At least Tara was willing to fight face to face. Summer is a coward who has to shoot from a perch far away.

    1. You denigrate the fine profession of sitting in wait in a torrid jungle while hunting the enemy on the field of battle. Maybe Summer is just a soldier of future in Dick’s NGO.

  6. I come back three weeks later from nearly dying from a ruptured appendix to this chaos.

  8. *Looks at Roon John and Smartcric’s comments above* wtf? Does the official welcome basket now include Ukrainian cloning devices by any chance?

    1. I assure you they do not. Not since Mr. Blue tried to use one to clone his way to a 50-foot tall lasagna. We were cleaning ricotta out of the couch cushions for THREE DAYS.
