Robinson’s decision to abandon the bridge during a crisis is not without precedent. Maybe it’s a trick he pulls on every new first officer just to see how they handle it.
On my original notes for this page, I wrote “Could this be Ritchie’s time to shine? Maybe.” I seem to have come down in the negative on that front.
In fiction writing, the thing in panel 3 is called a “plot hook.” (WARNING: The preceding sentence is a terrible pun and does NOT in any way represent a correct usage of the term.)
Doc isn’t quite the hardened criminal that the others are.
Also, I’m not quite satisfied with how the blam blams finally turned out.
There’s not a whole lot of background for these bad guys, so you can imagine whatever you like. For example, I’ve been imagining that Pug and Doc are brothers, and if you want to you can too.
Writing these bad guys is a source of unending delight.
Finally, an update! Sorry for the lengthy delay. The schedule should now be back to its normal state, such as it is.
The epic conclusion of Kindler vs. The Seagulls.
