It’s a Psychobilly Freakout! -Pt6

It's still Tuesday in Hawaii. I'm on time! Friday's comic may be shorter than what I've been averaging lately. Just want to keep this twice a week thing going. See you then. :) Update: Pushing myself so hard to get this up today, but I just dont see t happening. Drawing debris and things getting destroyed is way more of a time drain than drawing it pristine. XD I can push it for the rest of the night to get done, but then it's going to be up Saturday, and my Tuesday post will be late, etc, so.. allow me this hiccup. I'll see you this Tuesday for the next one.

  1. The question we need to ask is “What does Terra do to survive this?” We know she does because of Sister X.

    My money is on Son of Take a Bullet Bot.

      1. While remains would be a good indication of a deathing; they are not conclusive for an individual capable of summoning. She could have performed some equivalent to a replacement jutsu with a cloned Terra meat puppet.

        1. I think it’s 3D rather than 2D as there’s slightly different angles between panels, but otherwise it does look like that might be the case (possibly a summon-type swap as CivD666 mentions above).

  2. Something about this makes me think of that Ricky Schroeder movie, the one where he was in the Navy, outside on deck when the main batteries were fired. Got to wonder how they protect their hearing from this.

    Hearing, avioli, capillaries, ear drums, cochleas, eyes, noses and just overall cellular cohesion.

    But as it was mentioned above, we’ve seen Tarragon walk away from when she gave herself a beat down followed by a can of whoop ass. The only reason the squaredance hoe down stopped, it was called on the accounts of time.

    1. Is the film you are thinking of “Too Young the Hero”? Because that movie was an extremely accurate, heart pulling masterpiece, I was in awe of their accuracy of life on ship down to the procedure of clearing the deck and shutting every hatch when the main batteries fire. The backwash from nine 406mm/ 16 inch guns is a nightmare to be near, doubt Terra will be dusting this off.

    2. Can concur – being around heavy weapons fire with standard weapons can cause hearing loss. The big stuff? That shit will kill you with air pressure. I was outside around the corner from the AMRAM launcher on the USS Wasp when it went off one day. Just the missile firing was loud enough to give me tinnitus for the rest of the day, and no doubt contributed to my overall hearing loss. Yes, young people do dumb shit, and wanting to watch a missile fire is one of them. Thankfully, I had the sense not to be around when the CWIS went off, because, Good God, that thing was as loud as an angry diety with catastrophic flatulence – you could hear it from dead center of the ship.

      That being said, the characters in this comic are ridiculously overpowered beings and I’m sure hearing loss isn’t even within the scope of things they concern themselves about.

      1. Hell, I made the mistake once of relling off a mag of .45 without muffs, once. Could barely hear at all for hours, and my ears rang for two days. And the side-blast from a .50bmg rifle muzzle-brake will blow your hat 20′. Muzzle blast carries a shitload of energy.

        1. I was told by a guy who reloads that a max powder charge minimum bullet weight 357 magnum ends up creating a nice big fireball. Your comment about muzzle blast reminded me of that and makes me wonder if there was a physical projectile out of that which is far offscreen by now or if it just shoots energy.

        2. Heh, yeah, hearing protection is the one thing I don’t mess around with. I was trying out a new Henry Arms ar7 and the guy next to me had a ruger 22 takedown. He commented that mine was surprisingly quiet (which I think was due to faulty ammo, half of it didnt even fire) when two ranges over, there was a noise so loud, it hurt through two layers of hearing protection. I don’t know what the other dude was shooting, but if I hadn’t had plugs and muffs on I’d be even deafer. XD

    3. They cover something similar in the Steven Seagal Movie Under Siege. Tommy Lee Jones’ character goes almost deaf from being in earshot of the cannons.

  3. My guess… she looses her hair, she beats the crap out of her and the 52… then learns one of her sisters was working with them… and cue the whole sister X time travel crap.

    1. I also like the twice a week schedule. Shorter updates are all right as long as that keeps up. Don’t know how many times I’ve said I’d read this comic with stick figure art.

  4. Meanwhile Mr. Date Night has suffocated, hopefully there’s a bot in there with him to pay respects because there probably isn’t any one who will find the body.

    F

  5. This whole arc has been great but – just because I hadn’t seen anyone else mention it and I know it had to take a fair bit of work on your part – good job with the revolver.

  6. Rusche…. I’m sorry…but in the first two panels Summer is pointing with two fingers. When she “fires” only one is pointing

    1. Maybe that’s part of how this thing works? Like, it’s a safety mechanism: Point with only one finger and drop your thumb, nothing fires. Point with two and drop your thumb, nothing fires. Point with two, and pull your middle finger back while dropping your thumb – successful discharge of a round.

        1. Better choice than me. My hand was in a cast for 6 weeks after I tried to use my finger guns as a pump action shotgun.

  7. Also, I want to say, when I first came here I chose this user name because I was in a web comic kick, checking out new ones every will. I figured, I’d be here for a bit, then leave. Out of all the comics (it was far more than I care to admit) I’ve only kept up with one. This one. The best web comic out there in my opinion

    1. That was revealed to be Juniper in the author post of comic Nightmare Fuel (current post date April 13, 2014).

        1. That’s true, but the moment the revolver arrived it got all the attention. It’s kind of like earthquakes. They tend to appear out of nowhere, but they are instantly impossible to ignore.

  9. Summer simulates the recoil when she shoots, but the recoil on the Broba.. Brodadingdang… Bobafettthing …gun must be awe-inspiring, while at the very least making the device prone to inaccuracy. What isn’t inaccurate is the colouring on that last panel, hooollee that’s tasty art.

  10. I’m still trying to figure out how David cleaned up after Tarra.

    And how Anise could cut her hair and it’s an issue, as it can always grow back.

    1. Well, if my experience in the military and my fandom of sci-fi has taught me anything, it’s that super-heroes or any sort of force that fights against others to the degree Tarragon does, someone has to come along and deal with the fallout. I’m sure David was there to handle the fallout and got tired of it.

  11. I’m more distracted by the animated Fat-Fat that peaks out at the bottom of the page every now and then than the animated Ellie.

  12. Understood on the delay and thanks for the note letting us know.

    To start another conversation, it occurred to me that due to Summer’s phrasing I can claim something in common with Tarra. My ass also never feels remorse, no matter how often my brain tries to tell it that it should.

    1. Always do appreciate the notes, yes.

      We all remember the days when an absence of three weeks or more would go unexplained. It got downright unnerving. Now there’s a mostly regular schedule, and notes when absences hit. It’s VERY welcome!

      As a side note, my ass only feels remorse on chili night.

  13. Discord servers also has several text chat channels as well as personal messages between users. This is great when you can not or do not want to use voice communication channels to chat.

    1. Ungulates are typically herbivorous (though some species are omnivorous, such as pigs), and many employ specialized gut bacteria to allow them to digest cellulose, as in the case of ruminants. They inhabit a wide range of habitats, including jungles, plains and rivers.
