It’s very rude to not chat while fighting
Steffi made a crucial error there, huh.. and it doesn’t seem Ben is doing all that better.
What’s taking 42?!
she had to wait until humans were in danger of being harmed (badly)?
Well recall 42 is back in the bar. She can’t just instantly get down the hallway and into the backroom. Combat just by very quickly. This whole page is 2 seconds at most combat time.
Unbeknowst to Steffi and Ben, 42 keeps getting hit on by everyone in the bar. Steffi’s desire to “go with whatever’s cheapest” unintentionally gave her the best-looking outfit of anyone in the entire Fuzzy Navel. Now Steffi must pay for her mistake by having 42 delayed every second by people trying to chat her up.
Really nice sense of motion! At first glanced it looked like a brawl was happening in the back room of a futuristic Kinko’s! Obviously not the case : ) Loving the series!
I still think they are koala ears!
Looking good anyhow Cube, loving the action :3
The problem here is that ben is relying on his tazer, while in a wolf suit. It’s kinda unfair for him since he’s limited in at the very least vision (look at those eye holes! they’re tiny)
Steffi on the other hand has no excuses, she’d do fine if she was just thinking a bit further ahead
Hm… looks like more training is in order. For both of them.
I hope costumes like that are thick enough to reduce bludgeoning damage.
So… maybe ben is not yet karate master status…
I was expecting her to trip him into the tiger chick. That might be what she was expecting to happen too, actually.
Ouch. :l AND MAY THE PAIN BEGIN.
Oh what the HECK, Ben!! You just grabbed a friggin’ sword by its BLADE! How can you so easily get kicked into a wall after such ana amzing display of badassitude?
(Oh, yeah. Because costumes are bulky and Tigris is way more badass than you.)
Katanas aren’t sharp on the back, which is the only part he touched. And obviously we can’t tell for sure because there’s no animation but I would assume he more parried it than grabbed it.
What Bluespade said. On one hand, that’s one less edge a combatant has to worry about. On the other, the dull edge allows the katana user to leverage or support the blade with his other hand. There are lots of techniques that do that.
(I was joking.)
I know how katana work, and the gloves would have protected anyway, unless Tigris was slicing against them.
Wait, did Tiger Lady break Ben’s back?! Also, I have the feeling that if 42 helps them, she’ll be finding “loopholes” more often.
I doubt back (spine), but I’m guessing ribs- which would still massively hurt.
I am liking Tiger lady more and more.
Damn. I just finished reading the archives. This is an excellent webcomic, and regardless of whether you want me here or not, I’m going to stay.
How’d that sword end up in front of Ben during that kick? Why would tiger lady go for the kick when she could have sliced Ben’s back (or neck) with that insane sword speed?
It looks like the sequence here is thus…
1) Ben parries katana by aiming for the dull side of the blade, then pushing down.
2) Tiger lady sidesteps tazer in sort of a bullfighter “Ole” move, pivoting on her right foot.
3) Tiger lady switches to pivot on her left foot, kicking Ben in the back while somehow having her sword completely miss his blind spot.
If she’s reasonably skilled, she could have sliced Ben’s neck open from the back with that sword and that speed. The kick seems, idk, unnecessary…
Maybe Tigris doesn’t wanna kill trouble-making teenagers?
To follow up on that, it’s almsot IMPOSSIBLE to get away with “self-defence” when you used a sword, much less a katana. (Serioustime this, since it’s actually legal stuff in the real world.)
I think they’d not only have a hard time explaining what they were doing, but also have a hard time explaining the genetic modifications.
From what I could see, she was out of position for a sword strike so she fell back on her hand-to-hand skills to defeat his attack. The knee to Ben’s back should create enough distance for an effective sword slash across his back, assuming he doesn’t roll out of the way.
Man! Tigris got skill!
Um, what. Cagle-sensei, delete this weird glitchy comment please. D:
It goes up above, where it also shows up.
I like how the Bullman dogpiled his target, while Tiger lady did a bullfighting ‘ole’ against her target.
something tells me tripping the bull man was more trouble than it was worth.
O course it’s rude to not chat while fighting. I presume that’s why Steffi said erp and Ben said guh. I would have expected a professional bartender to say something back to keep up the flow of conversation, though. Maybe next time. Or maybe 42 will have a few words to say.
… tiger lady has TINY feets.
I love the word baff.
That “KRAK” does not seem good…
… Last page in the Archive.
… Trawl complete.
… Encountered LPUC phenomenon. Last updated on the 13th. Now the 20th. Curious.
At least this page has a little context now. It confused me when I first saw it.
how they move in those costumes is beyond me
