Chapter 5: Page 18 – Time to Regroup

Posted by / in Comic / 30 comments

Last night I had a dream that someone new had pledged to my Patreon with a big amount of monies.  It was a good dream.  Everyone can feel free to make it a true dream/prophecy ;)  Every little bit helps to pay Seba, to pay for a guy who’s making us a soundtrack/theme songs, advertisements around the web, etc.

Anyways, any predictions on how Jane and Angeline proceed?

 

  • Dusty Coyote

    Pshh, I got this mom.

  • Matt [in Middletown]

    He’s dreaming, Jane.
    “Dead but dreaming great Tenzthulhu…”

    • Dusty Coyote

      I doubt she counts electric sheep.

      • Matt [in Middletown]

        Dancing nanobots.

            I’ve been stuck on that ride. You should feel shame for singing that. Its a great comment and funny, but still. Shame.

          • theRoUS

            I don’t think I’ve ever been foolish enough to come within its grasp. I was an adult long before I made it to any Disney park, and had already heard horror stories.

            Speaking of Disney, who here has caught the almost-subliminal Mickey Mouse appearance in the original Tron film”

        Do androids dream of electric sheep ?

        (That book was an orgasm *~*)

        • NickDA

          Agreed… awesome book.

          • Adriano

            Philip K Dick has this paranoiac touch that always makes you wonder if what you take for reality is real or not.
            True genius !

    • theRoUS

      “Dammit, Jim! I’m an AI, not a.. oh, wait, yes I am.”

      • Matt [in Middletown]

        LOL!

  • MOM, OMG I’m busy, just text me

    • Adriano

      “Can’t you see I’m flirting with Tenzin, the new guy from my class ? Just leave me, Mom !”

  • Michael Corley

    I hope my brain never requires that big a power cord.

    • Matt [in Middletown]

      500 quatloos on your power cord!

    • theRoUS

      Mmm, about 50 kiloclossons.

  • theRoUS

    An hour? Wall-clock time? Wow. Not only does meat live in a firehose, but it does so slowly.

    • well, I could have made several pages for what happens on pages 16 and 17. That would give a much better sense of the time it took to Jane to assimilate all the new info, but I’m guessing you wouldn’t enjoy a single panel in a white page twice a week for a month :P

      • Dusty Coyote

        Thank you.

  • An hour is like, forever in computer time, isn’t it? I wonder what Jane’s concept of time is.

    • Nate the Robot

      One of my favorite lines from STNG comes from Data in First Contact:

      Lieutenant Commander Data: [about the Borg Queen] She brought me closer to humanity than I ever thought possible. And for a time, I was tempted by her offer.

      Captain Jean-Luc Picard: How long a time?

      Lieutenant Commander Data: 0.68 seconds sir. For an android, that is nearly an eternity.

  • Professor Fate

    A mind is a terrible thing to roam around in. I wonder what will happen when Jane encounters his subconscious? That’s the Great Dismal Swamp of anyone’s brain. It could also be where the problem is located.

    • Delta-v

      Hi, Professor, good to hear from you. I’ll agree with you abut his overloaded subconscious, but he has enough problems to involve every part of his psyche. :)

  • Delta-v

    Sounds like incompatible formatting to me.

  • theRoUS

    Hm. Am I mistaken, or is Jane at her most contained and severe, with her hands behind her, when speaking with Angelina? Issues there, I wonder? If so, this is going to get ‘way more interesting. I love it!

  • Matt [in Middletown]

    “If I click this neuron, I can make his toes twitch.”

  • Neil Kapit

    The bottom middle panel is an especially clever yet natural piece of visual storytelling.

    • NickDA

      Seba is an absolute beast with this… our concept discussions have us all scratching our heads sometimes, of how to visually show Jane’s “reality”

  • Citrus Reaper

    Damn, is this going to result in Jane fighting demon-zombie-Keleres? I hope so.
