    Ok, I'm going to assume that's hypothetical, right? I mean... right?

    But I'd have to say neither, because fighting a horse-sized duck is too terrifying to even contemplate.

    And duck-sized horses? How could you fight them? They're too adorable. Can you imagine a bunch of them, all trying to eat one apple? Oh my god. Too cute.

    I appreciate them calling that thing "one of those Tron things" :)

    Indeed, we kinda already know what "horse-sized ducks" look like.

    We call those Utahraptors. They were pretty scary.

    The Tron thing doesn't seem to care about the number of users on the grid, so I guess that's a win... right?

    I notice he's using the Tron Legacy style outfits even though the comic references villains from the original. The Legacy blacks are definitely better looking than the old grey outfits, imho.

    Edit: but really I'm just trying to get the forums to recognize I've seen this thread already.

    If you're curious about my icon; it's an update of the early Lego Castle theme's "Black Falcons" faction.

    It would be more authentic for the Recognizer to spend 5 minutes talking about themselves before getting to the silly question. Oh, and a line of frustrated programs waiting for their turn.

    But the MCP was a more fun boss fight than Rinzler.

    (my only exposure to Tron has been via Kingdom Hearts)

    That tron thing was waiting at the mic for a while before they recognized it.

    We're just lucky shoebills aren't horse sized.

    Everyone always focuses on which battle is more difficult, rather than which is more rewarding. If you fight the duck and defeat it, maybe you can tame or just befriend it and then you essentially have a chocobo.

    Being of an age where the original Tron was one of the more memorable cinematic experiences of my formative years, I am embarrassed by how long it took me to realize that the thing in the first panel was the digitization laser and that Gabe was literally about to be broken down and transmitted to the grid.

    I was going to go with Phorusracids because when you're called a "Terror Bird" then I think the 100 duck size horse choice is pretty much nailed on.

    I do wonder where Gabe went in panel 3.

    There's been a mix-up with the upload for Friday's (6/19) comic so it is currently displaying on the page for Wednesday's (6/17) on the main site. Curiously, on the forums this comment thread still displays the correct strip.

    Edit: Ah cool, it's fixed now.

    Edit 2: now the forum thread's copy of the comic image isn't loading, but that might just be on my end.

    He ran because he got scared. Either of the Tron thing, or at the idea of the comment.
