Nothing like a little Paradox to start your day.

You know what's sad? I truly had no idea where this was going until this strip. I'm a smart guy, I can program the world's most powerful computers, but who-done-its, mysteries and good plot twists completely leave me stumped. Gaping hole in my cognitive reasoning, I guess.

CyberLizard,

Don't sweat it - I'm just glad the strips themselves were able to keep you up to speed!

There's still more fallout from this revelation to come, but rest assured it will all be explained eventually.

Thanks for reading. :)

CyberLizard said...

np, thanks for writing :)

I've actually got an idea for a lego strip. Are you amenable to answering a few questions if I emailed them to you? Just basic stuff about your process and photography, etc.

Christopher Doyle said...

Email is always welcome, but I'm actually working up a FAQ about how I put the strip together. I hope to have it posted in the next week or so.

So I guess this would be a good spot to say: If anyone has a question regarding the strip creation process, ask it now so I can try and include it.

Ever since BH Episode 16 (where Whiskey's name was introduced), I've been waiting for him to reveal his full last name is actually hyphenated Tango-Foxtrot to finalize the Whiskey Tango-Foxtrot trifecta. (Although I have a vague memory of it being mentioned before, but I can't find it anywhere.) And was Mary Beth a typo? Or is that a further plot point?

Christopher Doyle said...

At this point all I'll reveal is that Mary Beth was *not* a typo. ;)

somesome said...

is mary beth named after mary sue.and when are you doing the star wars bootleg

Christopher Doyle said...

@somesome:

That'd be a "wait and see" to both.

I just love predestionals! They're my favourite type of paradox, you know.

If it's been ten years since Wash lost his arm, why hasn't he gotten one of those snazzy metallic silver Inferno ones yet? He could sure use one.

Everyone knows that zombies can't use cybernetics!

I guess there's a bit more to this story yet, as quite how Whiskey grew up unaware that he's half-zombie or related to Wash & Fox in some way is a mystery. If he did know, it'd probably penetrate his consciousness unless they deliberately hid it from him, which hasn't been done yet.

I think this will be a great chapter in the BH storyline! Well done, Chris!

I love it how Fox's face is the same the whole time. =P

Zepher said...

Saw it coming just seconds before hand (a few comics, that is), but I'll be happy to see how this turns out. You're going to have a hard time looping this. You'll have to get Wash and Fox back in the past, unless they're alredy ack in the past.

I wonder how far back this goes to...Time to read all the other 616Comics to find out.
