I drew a dog guy. You couldn’t stop me.
And that my friends is the lethal gun.
Well played. You win this round.
I’m just hoping that the boom was actually swat instead of the chief and lawnhead saved the day.
That would be a good twist, if “Lawnhead” called SWAT to confirm the party.
Canis is rather extremely discomforting. His age combined with the fact that he is a dog faced abomination.
Yo, dawg, that tie kinda looks more like a leash.
And I’m thinkin’ it’s less that he’s old and more that he has the facial genetics of a basset hound.
I sort of figured the same – about the basset face…
And I like him – feels…Sort of James Cagney, to me, somehow?
Which would actually be quite appropriate. The way he spoke during Tigris’ chat and the way he acts now strongly implies he’s Alter’s enforcer- appropriate for a “dog”.
He looks more like a lapis to me.
Or a kangaroo. From “Tank Girl.”
What, you’ve never seen a Basset Hound before?
Stiiiiilllll betting on Cho headbutt frenzy to save the day.
Okay, NOW Jones is looking sufficiently evil. “Yeah, everybody just blew up off panel, and I’m just mildly annoyed by the noise.”
The worst part is that one of them was the father of the guy that she is pretending to have feeling for, who, on top of that recently lost his arm.
That girl be ICE cold.
She was still looking cute and innocent last update. No longer.
damnit. I liked jones…
Jones is dead. Only Cebus remains!
Except if Cho dies or is somehow unable to divulge the truth about Celesta Jones. If so, Cebus can keep up her being a mole in the police.
Was that a bomb? Well shit… Hopefully Iron Reed steps in soon so so we can have at least one survivor on the side of good ;_; Also that line combined with that facial expression basically puts to bed any doubts about Jones not being a traitor. =( I liked her.
Now equipped with missing-parent-syndrome, Reed can become the anime hero he was always meant to be!
Also: Oh noes! D:
He can become IRON BATMAN…just without money.
Waiiiiiiit, Steffi has a great deal of money, and if Reed was to join them…. The possibilities are endless!
… Like his arm. Before the transplant. I’m sorry.
Jones looks- IS- EVIL!
And “keep things quiet”? The hell? They were planning to massacre the cops? Why? Chief, Barnes, and Flores… O_O
Also, to Cube: good job on the Uzi! Nice to see another artist who does accurately and realistically referenced firearms as opposed to those who just make things up.
Does it matter? Different tech, different weapons. Like the legal system argument in the previous chapter, I don’t get why you guys keep trying to analyze a sci-fi comic by modern-Earth terms.
Cube took the effort to properly reference and depict an Uzi and I’m quite impressed with her work. Regardless of whether it actually IS an Uzi or is a weapon SIMILAR TO or BASED on its design is second to the fact that she did a GOOD JOB. It’s easy for an artist to just make something up along the way as opposed to doing the research and doing the work, and it’s a flaw I see even among popular and skilled artists. Why are you raining on that parade when it shows Cube’s got artistic discipline and eye for detail?
Wait. Isn’t Canis even going to ask Cebus (you’re no longer “Celesta Jones” to me, lady) to at least step aside before he pulls that trigger? ‘Coz that spray can easily go past or through Cho to hit Cebus.
Or is Canis’ position at an angle towards Cho that Cebus is no longer in the line of fire.
Or it could be an “You have outlived your usefulness/you know too much” sort of deal.
Part of me hopes Cho drops and drags Canis’ line of fire through Cebus to make her escape – not expecting Cebus to take a serious injury (Cebus’ history as Jones equals fun chemistry here after, is all), but it’s a good emergency plan.
Sorry for the rapid fire posts (pun not intended), but now I can’t wait for next week.
He’s so gangsta!
I thought Bizarro McGruff. He’s a completely different kind of crime dog.
Then there’s Poop Dawg, the mascot of the Poop Candy Company from Invader Zim. He’s actually the first who popped into my mind.
Honestly, I saw Sam, of Sam and Max. To each their own, I suppose.
Or an evil version thereof, I guess.
It’s sort of hard to tell, with Sam, in many ways, as far as good and evil goes…
I totally read that as “pooped into my mind”
I guess he’s the “Gangsta Specta of Defeat” right now. Way to bring out my inner fanboy.
And now I can’t unsee it. AHHHHHH
Just be happy Canis wasn’t based off of a white-hair; we’d be calling him Snoopy G instead.
This made me smile…
I could have, Cube. I could have stopped you. But I didn’t. And now it’s all on me. I’ll carry this regret to my grave! D:
If that was a car-bomb, then Reed just lost a hell of a lot more than a girlfriend. If for some reason there were survivors, they’re well on the way to a hospital bed – best case scenario.
If it was a bomb placed in that area specifically (or perhaps a rocket-propelled grenade), maybe we’ll be seeing more of them soon… unless they didn’t drive out of the area in time, eh.
We’ll be seeing more of them, as they rain down from above as fleshy bits of, rain
Guesticus. That was terrible. Even my black heart’d soul winced. still laughed, but it winced first.
Then again, Cube deliberately avoided showing us the explosion itself, almost like there’s something we’re not supposed to see yet.
…like maybe a certain robot-armed cop who was waiting in the shadows sprang out just in time to warn everybody away?
Or a robot PERSON? Wait, 42 is busy and the only other robot is impersonating a corpse.
yo all, just caught up on the comic. liking it so far. kinda bugs me that the league of bad guys are a group of “murder furries” though.
Yes, I am a furry myself, not gonna rage or anything. just kinda off-putting
Yes, the furries that dress up kinda weird me out(genetic or cosmetic modification outright disgusts me, I mean I’d like to have some aspects of certain animals but that’s going to far) well I’m done ranting before I start preaching
If you go through it, it feels more like the author wanted to draw animal people more than vilify them. Just look at their inspirations, if you saw animal based enemies in a megaman cartoon or anime would you think anything of it? (i know this isn’t quiite the same)
eh, I’m not mad or anything, but there is just something… unsettling about them. I and considering it’s the only criticism I have for the series, and at that just a minor personal issue. if anything having villains I can relate to and then get goose bumps realizing that I can relate to them at all is evidence of great writing. just felt like I had to say something
I gotta wonder, has he been dogging them this whole time?
I think half of the Internet would ask you to die in a fire for that joke D:
And the other half will give you a cookie.
Want a cookie?
…crafts cookie flambe for Narratorway….
I do hope you aren’t using the British definition for dogging
looks like Canis could use some sleep
also he reminds me of Daft Punk’s Da Funk music video
There’s a chance that Canis is a mole. Just saying…
Actually, I’m pretty sure he’s a dog…
Hmmm, 3 people depicted, but 4 names listed…
If Cho (still don’t like her) isn’t Cebus, maybe she could still be one of Alter (as Guinea Pig-girl, or maybe Bunny-girl, she kinda looks like Stef’s pet rabbit)
Cho? You mean Jones, right?
Nope, Cho is the one wearing the helmet
Where did Cebus’s headset go? She had a mic/earpiece thing on the last page.
I’m not trying to nitpick here, but I noticed and everyone else took the good things to say.
Lazy art lines. Upper part uses face perimeter for border and lower part uses top of collar lines as border. Almost didn’t see it myself.
She threw it away while nobody (including us) was looking.
Too bad 42 wasn’t there to discourage violence.
Maybe Blitz should have been there too. Then 42 would discourage violence from Canis, Blitz would attempt violence towards Canis, 42 would discourage violence from Blitz, Cebus would attempt violence to Blitz, 42 would discourage violence from Cebus, Cho would attempt violence to everyone, and 42 would once again discourage violence. Not that anyone else in the scene would care.
Then add Ben, Reed, Gear, and anyone else you can think of.
WAIT PUPPY STILL USING NORMAL UZI NOT MINI OR MICRO BUT UZI ISN’T UZI FROM LIKE 1960
Must be the collectors edition uzi.
Oh snap – okay yeah, there goes the evil, right there.
Argh going to be a long wait for that next update (the whole weekend, noooooo) XD
Good stuff, Cube.
I don’t think that I realized until RIGHT NOW how much I love Cho. Dammit Cube, please don’t kill anybody… ;A;
>”don’t kill anyone”
*Looks at the explosion*
May be a little too late, to make that request…
This is why I like Cho. I knew she was awesome the first time I laid eyes on her. *Sparkle* *Sparkle*
Unlike Cho’s gun, Canis’ gun can shoot round shaped bullets.
Round bullets are so outdated. Will someone threaten with a bow and arrow next?
Doesn’t matter. Someone could be pointing a flintlock or even your bow and arrow at you and it would still be a serious, potentially lethal threat. And that’s the point of Canis and his Uzi.
the most dangerous kind
So does Cebus Jones know monkey style kung-fu?
That was terrible and you should feel terrible.
And we are going to growm when’s he’s proven correct…
I WILL DIE WITH NO REGRETS!
Yeah, so much for bending over backwards to give her the benefit of the doubt.
Hmmm…. Oh Jones. D: Whyyyyy….
Well, you never know. It might not be the real Jones. Maybe a Chamelon based bad guy or something. *shrug* (desperately clinging to any hope that she’s not evil)
Maybe, at the risk of ruining the Cebus-monkey theme. Maybe if Cebus was a master of disguise as per the monkey rep of being tricksters. But I doubt it; it would be too left field.
Also, at least some part of a deep penetration spy’s act has to be genuine. I mean, Cebus would have had a harder time infiltrating the police if she had to disguise herself all the time or only only suddenly appeared when Alter started raising flags among the police after replacing the real Celesta Jones. In short, I think Celesta Jones truly is Cebus.
Well…that didn’t sound good…
An uzi ain’t a great gun when you don’t wanna hit the person behind the one your shooting, spray and pray.
I hope Cho can make a dog pun burn before she gets shot.
I’m thinking Cho is going to survive somehow. She’s got some plot armor with Reed’s partner and having a name and all, but if she slips away she’s going to have to go into hiding because Jones can go back to the police and blame everything on Cho, continue being a mole and pursuing a relationship with Reed while Cho has to go into hiding, sneaking around as a wanted criminal for an ambush she didn’t plan and trying to get into someone to talk to who will believe her.
Or she could be shot next panel. I would be very sad, though.
Am beginning to hope more and more that of the three off-screen on-site cops, Flores escapes/survives/isn’t hurt too badly. I’ve come to realize that her grumpy, downer characters gives her a lot of personality and makes her stand out.
Canis looks like he’s seen some shit, like the Cho of the furries with one day left until retirement.
Doesn’t that require instantaneous failure then?
Is … is it just my mind playing tricks on me – wishful thinking if you will – or is the right hand of Canis drawn with a very sharp corner for the back of his hand / where the fingers join with his hand (only visible in the first image)?
Maybe it’s Lawnhead, with his metal arm showing, come to help
… Mostly wishful thinking, yeah.
I’m calling Jones to pull a fast one on the “heroes of the night,” whoever they’ll be, to be all “I totally tried to save Cho” and shoot Canis in front of the back up while Cho dies to keep her cover. That’s my theory. And I can’t wait for the next page. Camping begins…
Re-reading the archives – Jones’s bad guy reveal makes her motives a lot more questionable in asking Reed on a date back in Track 7. The questions she asks on the date take on a whole new light…
wait dose that mean Jones is codenamed Homo as the zodiac “monkey”
never mind Cebus is the genus of the capuchin monkey

Yeah, I basically can’t think about anything but Megucas at the moment.
Rebellion is such a beautiful nightmare.
I love that the one thing Mami always wanted was granted to her by the one who took everything away in reality.
