Informational post to follow below!
By “below” I mean that blog section that the main page has. I put information there sometimes!
You know the ponytail really works for 42.
42 is super cute with a pony tail. I demand this be made her default hair configuration!
Okay, so 42 is Violet Baudelaire…
I love how Steffi’s dad is /willing/ to help her when she’s pretty much risking her life fighting and stuff.
Yeah, he’s really not a good father…
Well, consider that he knows she will go out anyway, he’s helping keep her safe the best way he can without locking her up and throwingaway the key.
Also, welcome back, Kiwi Blitz!
To be fair, the power armor is also /armor/, and will help protect her when she gets into stupid dangerous situations. Which she’s going to get into anyway, because she’s stubborn as fuck.
My thought exactly.
No arms because kiwis. Well, it’s a better reason than no arms because Homestuck!
Plus it’s not like she knows anybody who could have used strong body armor for their arms…
You’ve got to stick with your themes. That’s what separates the professionals from the schmucks.
Oh God it took me a moment to get the “knows anybody” comment.
Reed’s gonna be piiissed when he sees it. “Nothing on the arms. Really. Really?”
I would have gone with armored sleeves designed to look like folded wings, myself.
I would go with that myself, but don’t forget the blades concealed within!
The funny part is it says you posted this at 3:41am.
Steffi’s superhero inspiration is Homestar Runner
Also, YAY! It feels like a great void in my life has been filled!
Yay! So happy for a new page! I hope Japan is treating you well.
I KNEW IT!
+1 for me knowing this was powered armor!
Kiwi Blitz is back! Does that screwdriver have a smiley on it or is that just half of a square?
It is happy with it’s work/job
Yay! You’re back!
Yeah, Ben – how silly.
Hopefully that will NOT be a weakness…
Also… lets hope there are no EMP swords/grenades around (that are not in the hands of her allies)…
Less armor also means more mobility, having the arms only be protected by thic, maybe reinforced cloth should have at least just as much advantages as it has disadvantages compared to a heavy armor.
Alas, reality is not like a videogame. You ever here about the time 100 Spaniards in steel armour conquered the Incans by defeating ~10,000 Incan soldiers? Yeah, not one Spaniard died.
Yeah, a big part of that was because the Spanish sneezed on the Inca, well, that and they came with guns
Video games? Well some are kind of realistic in that respect, seemingly more realistic then whatever you seem to think to be reality.
In fact armor has both advantages and disadvantages, there’s a reason heavy armor is almost only used in special cases nowadays, and thats not because it would work so well on a modern battlefield.
Also the same people you wrote about would never have worn their armor to a one on one duel. In battlefields armor was a good measure, since you never knew when and where a stray attack may come from, but even then, mobility was superior in other aspects of combat, not that it matters since that one was hundreds of years ago, in a time were guns weren’t even really superior to bows.
As it so happens, the Spanish armor of the time also didn’t protect the arms.
Anything to preserve the theme. Besides, it’s not like anyone goes around stabbing people in the arms…
Just view as an excuse by the author/artist to give Steffi one (or two) cybernetic arms after ‘style’ meets reality.
That’s not going to throw Leggerkins off balance, is it? Seems like she should have that part of the armor just be for show.
based on ‘boot the the FACE!’ it doesn’t
Also your back and forward buttons are skipping over page 353 now. You are rusty, Cube. Ask 42 her recommendation for joint lubrication.
Just don’t tell Popeye
It’s back yay!
Guess who’s back… back again!
Oh Heinrich, don’t you ever stop being such a lovable mech nerd!
i cant believe steffi still doesn’t want arm protection, seeing what happened to reed and everything.
also, you can totally tell she got her way with the no arm armour because, in tha last page, she only has sleeves there, not armour.
Something something women, something something upper body strenght, something something.
Something something Benzene, something something upper body strength, something something. I hope that answered your issue.
Her dad’s face in the 3rd panel, just so much adorableness. Love the background by the way. Adds that little extra-ness.
She tells Benny to ‘stick with the meme’, and TOTALLY FORGOT THE BEAK!!!!! (and no, that spike does not, should not, count, for one thing, it’s too short, and on the top of her head)
She should also know that real kiwis (human and bird varities) do not come in ‘lime-flavour’
Perhaps, but she has a better fashion sense than you because a beak would make it go from awesome to ridiculous. Also, the outfit is green because the mech is green and fuck nature.
Don’t know where you come from, but as a lifetime Kiwi (of the human kind) get personally offended when people mess around with our national identity ( don’t get me started on the US practice of leaving off the ‘fruit’ from ‘kiwifruit’: it’s one word, like ‘grapefruit’ or ‘pineapple’)
Green is better. Revolvers are better. Awesome doesn’t need any rules. Today’s not the day to learn why this comic has so many.
Can’t believe no one has commented on Heinie’s chuffed-grin in panel 3
And Bengie is now sporting headphones now? o_O
The headphones were a gift from Steffi for his birthday. He’s been had them on (although not always on his ears) ever since.
Add me to the list of lovers of 42 with a ponytail.
