    This was one of those comics where the build was perfect and just the visual got a laugh.

    But because this comic gets so dark at times I'm now worried that people might have been hurt! Blast!

    Dear lord...PERFECT use of the cat/cat meta/light - truly brilliant.

    The man in black fled across the desert, and the Gunslinger followed after him.

    I also love that Seventeen calls moonshine "fire juice" that is awesome.

    Part of me feels like this would be the perfect ending strip to the Weedonwatcha series. (and the other part of me feels horrible for that XD . )

    Welcome to Camp Lookitdakamponfyr.

  • hajenhajen Registered User regular
    Brian twiddling a stick is just a red herring.

    ... I'm thinking the Camp is close to the Hanford Nuclear Reservation.

    Hey, found the cat.
    No, not just any cat. Look at its ear.

  • SargeSarge Registered User regular
    I was wondering how they were gonna light that fire seeing as they apparently have no matches or lighters. Or a bow drill.

    Instead, they have Brian's fingers?! That's it, he's officially superhuman.

  • LieutenantDanLieutenantDan Registered User regular
    I knew where this was going after the last strip, and still loled. Great execution.

    @Hajen, we don't have forests like that here. We're a desert/tundra.

  • marsiliesmarsilies Registered User regular
    @Hajen Mushroom Clouds can be formed by any large enough explosion, not just nuclear ones. The earliest depiction of a mushroom cloud is from 1782:

    Man, this was just what I needed today. I laughed so hard my roomy came in just to see what was up. Great comic as always Katie.

    @Sarge: of course he's superhuman, We've seen this before with his super animal affections, super hearing, and super speed. Plus, how else could he shield Seventeen from that blast and survive?

    I will state that while that mushroom cloud seems overly large relative to the trees in the foreground its not hard to generator mushroom cloud like that when lighting a fire with gasoline.

    Imagine if everyone died in that explosion; Malachi would be asking: "What about me?"
    (The same last line from DUCK YOU SUCKER!/A FISTFUL OF DYNAMITE.)

    Camp WeedonwantchaaaAAAAAAHHHHHH I'M BURNING!

  • hajenhajen Registered User regular
    @Sokpupet, I live on the wetside, so I knew better, but i gambled that there wouldn't be a local from the locale that could poke holes in my hypothesis... ;)

    But I do often ruminate on if Katie does have a real world location in mind. that she has based the fictitious Camp at/on.

  • emil4055emil4055 Registered User new member
    "Beacon"? more like "Bacon"...

  • WaxxyOneWaxxyOne Registered User regular
    LOL. Love the "hidden kitty" no longer being hidden in panel 7. XD

  • iczer6iczer6 Registered User regular
    What was in that 'fire juice'? Where they making moonshine or bombs?

  • TrygylTrygyl Registered User regular
    @Iczer: Seventeen's "family" was hinted to be anarchists, so most assuredly either bombs or simply using gasoline to burn important city buildings

  • TheGTFTheGTF Registered User new member
    @iczer6, What she is calling "Fire Juice" appears to be kerosene or something similar. It smells familiar to her because her family were shown to be moonshiners in flashbacks about them. The explosion in panel 2 is from that flashback, a still leaked and detonated. That's the thing about ethanol vapor, it's very explosive. A still accumulates a lot of it, the stories of moonshiners blowing up shacks in the woods by accident are not backwoods urban legends. Leaks and improper ventilation with a MacGyver'd heat source is begging for accidents.

    A bit random to be honest. I mean we used a substance named Sinoli to light fire on our metal cooking.
    Aside the normal firemaking when working with logs etc. (when not using metal equipment).

    We sometimes did fire rings on the ground just to try out and it wasn't nowhere near explosive.
    It was more like the time in chemistry class when we were studying the relations & properties of water & alcohol both mixed in a towel or paper. Once lit, the paper or towel didn't burn because water & alcohol rejects each other etc. Therefore only the alcohol among with some of the water were vaporised in the process, so in a way water shielded it from the fire. But alcohol let the fire live till no more alcohol were left. It was a very smooth reaction.

    To see a reaction from the "fire juice" makes me think that substance was closer to gasoline than normal safe fire oil. Thus then again times change so before people might had used more flamable fire oil. Not sure.
