Hello Goodbye 17: Dodge Fight

Oh dang! A comic! My in-laws were down this weekend and I was certain I wasn’t going to be able to get this comic finished! But I did! Because I am awesome.

Not much to say about this page! Stay tuned for ACTION.


Remy’s quit the sour-puss isn’t he?

I’ll make the unpopular vote and root for Royce on this one xP

Hahaha, I don’t think i’d have the guts to introduce myself to Dave; he’s so obnoxious and loud and proud, completely opposite of what I am.

Though, if he did talk to me first, then he’d be one of my favorite friends to hang with. :D

Is medallion grabbing allowed as a tactical manoeuvre? Separate someone from their medallion, and they should undergo an immediate and uncontrolled reversion to fullform, with attendant shift in balance and increase in target size. With Royce’s medallion exposed on his belt like that, he’d be particularly vulnerable.

Margot’s eyes seem to be a blank red right the way across, with just the occasional reflection from nearby lights stealing in. It must be handy for eyeing up the guys (or gals) without them noticing!

It will be interesting to meet the elders and see who’s on the team. And find out just how old some of them have managed to become. Presumably they won’t take the view “…the unfortunate Anthony Gillis is a liability, blah blah… and regrettably we must…” et cetera, et cetera. If they did, I doubt that Jon Lyon would be walking around today.

By the way, things can happen accidentally or by accident in the UK, but we don’t say “on accident”.

Well, it’s a dodge fight. First one to lay hands on the opponent wins and all. If they got the leeway to grab their medallion, they got leeway to touch them. No point taking the extra step.

I would guess that grabbing for someone’s medallion, considering the consequences of a broken one, is at the least a minor social taboo.

Hm. Sounds like this might be related to Cracker-Whacker, but simpler and quicker. And I love Remy’s expression down at the bottom of the last panel!

I never noticed before but Royce’s medallion isn’t around his neck, it’s on his waist around his belt. I figured it had to be around the person’s neck to be used but I guess it works just as long as it’s attached to the person in some way.
