Well, riding hareback beats climbing any day! Assuming you can find a giant, mutant, cave rabbit that doesn’t mind being ridden, that is. Now let’s just hope bot’s rabbit-riding skills are up to snuff for the journey through the tunnels!
Yes it’s going to be some ride! Love it!
it is indeed, Kris! thanks for the love!
and check you out: you just took the Shades of Firsting, once again! wear them well – these have night vision built-in for navigating dark tunnels at high speeds:
Dang, you guys are fast. Looks like a tie…
i wonder if Grimwald understands “Tally-ho,” Insectoid? heheh.
and, whoa! you’re right – Kris nabbed those Shades by the skin of her teeth. i believe she, you and flame_fingers were all separated by less than 30 seconds each for the top spot.
Poor Mu’s just screams “Wth are you waiting for!?”
The chase is on!
yep! he does seem to be a bit impatient, doesn’t he, f_f? 🙂
Lets hope jefbot can survive the ride without falling off.
heh. somehow, i doubt he’ll be able to stay on the entire time, DAS.
Getting random Catbus vibes. Looks cool though.
i love the Catbus, DJ. in fact, if it came down to riding Grimwald or the Catbus, i think i’d hafta go Catbus. it’d be safer at any rate, and can fly! 🙂
Mu, just hold on, don’t try to… steer.
Remember how I said they didn’t even ask the 8th doctor? What do I know…
Check this out:
I know, right?! I was always kinda annoyed by the whole John Hurt thing because it felt like Moffat had some sort of grudge against Paul McGann (I’m only familiar with Classic Who in passing, but I still knew enough to feel a little bitter).
aww, man. that mini episode made me want to binge-watch DW ’til i’m all caught up. looked amazing.
ha! yes – good advice for Mu, Maryz.
Hopefully, Jefbot brought along a substantial length of very strong rope. That is an essential tool for climbing rock faces. I learned the necessity of rope the hard way. Seven years ago, I climbed a rock face that was made by dynamite blasting to make way for a railroad track. I grabbed an outcropping but the rocks I grabbed gave way and sent me falling a distance of 23 feet (according to the measurement I took later). I banged up my left knee and ankle and hit my head on the railroad track. I limped my way back to my vehicle, drove home, then applied ice to those injured parts. In a few days, I regained complete mobility in my knee and ankle. Unfortunately however, my left ankle still sends sharp pain up my leg at times when I turn it incorrectly. From then on, I never climbed a rock face without a safety rope. I hadn’t thought that falling only 23 feet could cause such a permanent injury but now I know.
Oh, yes. A helmet would be good, too. I now never climb without one of those.
Well, “Grimwald” does translate out to “Helmet Power.” Maybe he has one to spare (let’s just hope it’s in Jefbot’s size).
heheh. you’ve done your homework, JOE.
Well, you’re the one who told me that the etymology played a part in selecting Grimmy’s name…
yikes! your story makes me cringe just reading it, Rainey. and as bad as your injuries were, i’m glad they weren’t any worse and you’re still around to tell the tale! let’s hope nothing that serious befalls jefbot & co.
Bot, I’m looking for an escaped experiment of mine. If a buxom redhead happens to chase you down like a leopard after a helpless antelope and molest you, file it under section 3.4 of your insurance and let me know which direction it ran in afterward.
thanks for the heads up, Anime fan! i’ll stay alert. (as if i wasn’t paranoid enough already…) 😉
I love Grimmy’s expression in panel 3. It’s something along the lines of “you’re not exactly the brightest bulb in the value pack, are you?”
I get the distinct impression Jefbot’s gonna get his Neverending Story on…
heh. maybe he’ll play the “Neverending Story” theme song on his iPod while they’re bounding through the tunnels, JOE. 🙂
Seriously? We are just going to ride the nightmare bunny down a dark, narrow hallways, and expect that everything is going to be okay, because we are running from other bio engineered creatures, so this good one will work out, because Mu ( who you don’t actually know very well ) has decided to trust the mad scientist that could have programmed him…. Bot, I don’t like it and I think you should run away 😛
at this point, i think he just has to go with it, HitD! but yes, this could be a case of “out of the frying pan, into the fire.” we’ll find out, soon!
Riding on the back of a giant creepy electronic rabbit. Nothing weird about that.
nope, nothing weird about it at all, p.j.! just another day in the life of bot.
Great, now someday he’s going to wake up at 2am and realize that he rode Hareback bareback, and who’s going to have to rock him back to sleep? Not ME man, not me!
i think you’re right, Oz – bot may need some serious therapy after this adventure is said and done! (assuming he makes it out of this alive, of course.)
And thus the great warrior Musashi said to the lord Jefbot, “Come, sit next to me on my great steed Grimwald, as we climb this mountain, and escape to Freedom!
now you’ve gone and made it sound so epic, BD!
Something tells me that this will be a very fast ride up. . .
let’s hope so, JGT! the alternative could be a long, slow, nightmarish trip back up!
Especially if ‘Bot has claustrophobia
If he can ride ostriches, he should be able to ride giant mutant cave rabbits. Since you have ostrich jockey on your resume, I assume he does too, yes?
This is going to be one heck of a ride I bet.
ha! i thought about this when writing the strip, Shanna, and couldn’t decide whether i wanted to have “ostrich jockey” as past canon or to have that come sometime in the future. decided on the latter. 🙂
*Starts playing thrilling Okami music* This’ll be good, or funny. It all depends on how Jefbot acts.
heh. i love that music, GB! and with some luck, i think it’ll be a little bit of both.
Oh, ‘bot. Always overthinking things. Sometimes you need to just stop thinking and jump on the back of a giant, mutant, cave rabbit.
This deserves to be on a t-shirt.
I spent way more time on this than I am proud of, and it didn’t even turn out looking very good.
Beautiful. ‘bot! Get the merchandising machine up ‘n running!
ha! i love it, Blunz! i’m sure that shirt would get many quizzical looks from passersby. (which is the mark of a good shirt, methinks.) 🙂
I love scenes where there’s a desperate chase through a forest full of trees. I hope it comes.
it’s possible that, before this adventure’s through, you’ll have that desperate chase, ROM!
That is all.
(Attention all animation studios: what the heck are you waiting for?)
someday, Sarah W. someday.
