It looks like Grimwald’s plan to bring down the entrance tunnel worked – but let’s hope for the sake of jefbot, Mu, Yu, Sir Cottonbottom and Grimwald himself that the tunnel’s the only thing that collapsed in that explosion! Of course, we’ll find out exactly how our crew fared in the next strip. See you next Tuesday!
Jefbot does want to keep the peace. The explosion was beautiful !
yep – bot is definitely the voice of peace compared to Grimwald (and Mu, it seems), Kris. and i’m glad you dug the explosion – i spent a lot of time messing with that last panel to get it looking like i wanted! (btw, i deleted your duplicate post. i figured you wanted that one gone.)
and check you out: you nabbed the Shades of Firsting this round! wear them well – these double as nice blast shields during surprise BOOMS!:
Damn that was fast! Poor Bot and Mu!
Grimwald had to act fast once all the Growlers were in the passage, f_f! and, yeah – i’m sure bot and co. are pretty shaken up right about now. 🙂
It’s pronounced SHOOT-zee!
Like a gun!
heh. true that, ROM!
Hope he has a backdoor or this story arc will end very differently. and sooner.
indeed, PJ Day – with the adventure cut short and our heroes trapped under tons of earth with limited supplies, i believe the comic would turn into some sort of esoteric survival strip. hmm…
when someone pushing buttons says hold on to something, don’t ask just hold on!
now we know, theBean!
Scumbag Grimwald…says to hold onto something, doesn’t give anyone a chance to actually find something to hold onto.
Also…no countdown? Just “Welp, time for ‘splodey times!” BOOM! I’m kinda starting to think ol’ Grimmy might be a few widgets short of a complete IKEA piece here…
heh. Grimwald’s got no time for countdowns, JOE! and, yeah – i think maybe he’s been in isolation w/ his pet rabbit for maybe too long.
When Grimwald decides a course of action, it’s decided.
Now. Where’s the broom?
Probably being used as an antenna or something.
Or to prop up the ceiling . . .
that better be a strong broom, Sarah W! (although, if it was made by Grimwald, that’s probably a given.)
a distinct possibility, Fijiman; Grim has more uses for antennas than sweepers, methinks.
yup. Grim decided and then BOOM! done deal, Sarah W. let’s hope he doesn’t make bot sweep up.
If your work is so important, why did you blow it up? Other than that, its reasonable to assume you are going to be quite safe.
let’s hope it was just the tunnel and not the entire cave that came down, HitD! but if it did, bot and the gang could be in trouble…
This entire time Grimwald had an iPod and headphones covered by his fur playing the 1812 overture, he was just waiting for the right part of the song.
Great. Now I have to find the scene in Farscape where Crichton times explosions to the 1812 overture (that happened, right? I’m pretty sure I’m not imagining it).
to Farscapedia, JOE!
ha! i bet Grimwald’s into classical music, Bloo Doom, so your scenario’s possible.
As Crazy Ivan would say. . .
or as Crazy Grimwald would say…
I can’t stop pointing out how much I love the artwork in this comic. That last panel does an amazing job of showing the effects of an explosion going off.
And suddenly I’m wondering if this is the first time we’ve seen Jefbot’s shoes.
that one goes way back, Ste!
i love that you love the artwork, Blunz! thanks! and as Ste mentioned, we have indeed seen bot’s shoes before – although the ones he’s wearing now are some old ones he found in that box of clothing he found at his former apartment.
I’m sure Grimwald has more ways out captain Nemo had many ways in and out on the mysterious island.
i think you’re right, Kris. we’ll find out in the next strip!
Cave used Explosion! Critical hit!
Hey, what can I say? I’m a huge Pokémon nerd.
Self-destruct sounds more appropriate to me. 😀
Darn. Why didn’t I think of that? I guess I was just going for that little extra power.
you and ROM! talking ’bout Pokémon makes me want to go spend more time with X & Y, GardeBlaze. gotta finish tomorrow’s strip first, tho!
New Jefbot comic, or Pokémon. That’s honestly a tough choice. However, reading a new Jefbot comic while playing Pokémon is downright awesome! Trust me I’ve done it before.
ha! i think you’ve described the optimal scenario for reading this strip, GB. 😀
o.o hes very srs bzness isn’t he?
yup, yup. he’s got no time for Growler-drama, dj!
Gotta love the explosion onomatopeia, am I right?
indeed, W-T! sound fx (and the lack thereof, in some instances) add so much to comics, methinks.
Heya Jeff! Long time no talk, but I remain reading everything. Just wanted to say that I went from loving your strip, to frustrated at Cel and Mu’s abrupt and prolooooooonged disappearance, to skeptical at the relkationship between Mu and Yuki, to, well- being fully interested again. I can’t even say where you got me, but you did. I honestly wasn’t sure if I could get as invested as I was before the disappearances, but now? I *want* to know where on Earth you’re going with all this. Bully for you Sir, and thank you.
glad to see you’re still with us, Holaved! i appreciate your candor and am happy you’re invested in the story and characters once again. and i can assure you – there’s a lot more to come with this arc that i think will keep you intrigued and excited throughout!
Go Grimwald! He’s one cool rabbit- thingy. Now what? I really hope the back-door tunnel is still intact. (There must be a back door, right? I can’t believe he would seal himself and the rest of the crew in.)
heheh. let’s hope Grimwald has another exit, Shanna, or our crew’s going to be playing a lot more Magic: The Gathering until they can figure a way out of there. 🙂
Unscheduled check-in: OBSERVER Maryz
Status: Caught a moment on net, cant speak long, connection compromised. As of this moment survival rating likely to doubtfull.
Report: Mental faculties in regard to patience spread thin. Former asigned living quarters are being used as spare storage space by parental unit, the audacity!
Request: Your mission, should you choose to accept it would be to contninue being and making awesome to CODENAME Jefbot and spreading the word of it for all OBSERVERs.
Logout: … I can hear footsteps, gotta go. Over and out.
Maryz?? Maryz!!! i pray you were able to sneak back – Solid Snake style – to your quarters before being discovered. i eagerly await your next check-in, assuming your survival rating remains optimal.
Oh dear, I’m so late. Sorry, I was busy doing this weird new thing called ‘being social’ . Its really fun, but nothing beats being on the interwebs.
C’mon, let Mu have super strength and the ability to dig sturdy tunnels in a hurry!
what is this “being social” you speak of, DAS? you’ll have to send more info of this as you acquire more data. sounds intriguing.
Its really weird. You talk to other people, not through facebook, not on the phone, but FACE TO FACE? I know, sounds crazy right? And you become friends with people, not by request, but just while talking about stuff an developing a so called ‘friendship’ and ‘bond’ with them.
so weird, DressesAreStupid. how do you “Like,” “Thumbs up” or “Re-Tweet” a “real” person???
Don’t feel bad, DressesAreStupid, I was doing stuff like working two jobs and getting ready for Philcon. Now that I returned, I can not only get back online but return my life to normal. (Or what passes for normal for me)
getting back to “normal” after i’ve been away is always hard for me, too, Rainey.
