Lo, our first page of the new year, which somehow looks a lot like the final page of the previous year…
Well, it is the same story line – same characters – same old jokes – same old pixels…
But THIS one has a panty shot!
Ah yes… sex, violence an’ money… the perfect trifecta of comix!
Graphic proof, however, that li’l Bunz can actually get quite sadistic when annoyed… So don’t annoy her… unless you’re really into pain…
It’ll be interesting to know whoever was brought in to study the scout craft. And why there apparently is no APB to rope in Bunz and Katz on sight. Way back when Officer Moxie had zero problem with finding them — so others could too. Making Batguy wind up on some strange kid’s game show couldn’t help but get the interest the press. A lot of story pieces are floating out there.
Naaah, Parking Enforcement is just the neglected orphan branch of the PD… as long as they bring in enough fines to pay for coffee and donuts, nobody higher up cares what they do with impounds, or what those impounds may be… Ever wonder what happened to the original Batmobile, the one before the TV series? I’ll give ya a clue… the rusted-out hulk is moldering in an obscure police impound lot, and nobody gives a damn… Same for the Green Hornet’s Black Beauty… And the Flying Wombat, too…
Don’t they sell the old clunkers off at some point? It would seem to make sense just to make room if nothing else.
The Batmobile had many interesting devices. But it was sometimes hard to tell that they were weapons. The TV version had a tiny sort of radar-like unit, that could (among other things) cut a hole in a steel wall. But you wouldn’t suspect it. Not so Green Hornet’s Black Beauty — it was an obvious tank. Different cars, with different functions. The Hornet wanted his ride to intimidate. Bat’s had his arsenal too, without any question. But the object of his ride was bring the citizens of the city comfort and hope when they were oppressed.
Ahem, now, where was I? Oh yes, fanservice on a grand scale here guys. What oggle bases have we got covered here? Well let’s see. Bunz is rocking the grade A Zettai Ryouiki in style with her urber-short, pleated skirt and white silk stockings with seams up the backs – very ’40s that is. Classy. Then there’s the aforementioned panty shot – blue and white stripes. Cute. Then for the foot folk we have a nice pair of high heels being used to hammer some actual heels. Poetic justice. Yes quite the bird watching smorgasbord here. Well done. Bravo! (Encore?)
And an actual story complete with plot to go with. Bliss!
Umm… yaaaas… and oddly, the skirt’s hemline seems to rise and fall with the level of action. Which leads one to wonder, again, about the nature and purpose of Bunz’s chrome “bunnytail.” It has been proposed that it is a sort of multidimensional “pocket” or alien “utility belt” wherein to stash her zap-gun… but since that hasn’t been used since the infamous “Street Mime” scene (perhaps the ancient power cell finally died or shorted out), and she hasn’t produced any other alien technology, perhaps that’s not the case… So here’s another suggestion: perhaps that floating orblet is a quantum-particulate projector, programmed to “disguise” our heroine by mimicking the costumes featured in the anime programs inadvertently locked in by the battle station’s decrepit receivers… And Bunz’s mood and circumstances affect the projector’s output… so when she is involved in intense physical activity, such as stomping the bejeebers out of some canned punks, the skirt becomes conveniently shortened so as to allow free motion… and fanservice…
You sir, are a “seventy dollar, red-wool, pure-quill” science-fictional genius. Of course this also means that in the event of, say, a power glitch of some sort…
Thankee kindly, Bill… As a sci-fi fan from ‘way back in the ’50s, naturally I am fluent in Technobabble, Cybergibberish and other literary devices designed to circumvent the inconvenient laws of physics… but what probably touched off this latest fit of feculent folderol was a dim memory of the scene on page 58 (June 2013), where Bunz’s original Playbunny costume suddenly and inexplicably flashed to a pantie-shot… evoking Katz’s immortal line, “But you aren’t wearing a skirt!”
And they too were white with horizontal blue stripes. Hmmmm… Either it really is an AI program or Bunz only has one pair or she has a lot of the same pattern… (or Josh has limited imagination ;-))
I’m going with the AI projection. It’s more scify (that’s Skiff-ee) and all sorts of interesting possibilities are introduced in the event of an EMP. In fact, the disabling or malfunction of “the Orb” has all kinds of neat plot possibilities.
And if Quagmire uses any one of them we shall have to demand remuneration!
Hmm, the introduction of some limited EFD effect in the story line might be very topical. The illusion of Bunz’s outfit might somewhat fade from the page. But presumably even without its full function, the orb would still be about our hero/villain, and to a greater or lesser extent she might use it in rather like in a 1930′s bubble-dance. Perhaps spinning on her toes and the like. It might slightly inflate in size to help with the new illusion. Not a really bad idea. If only our own illusions were [all] that we had to worry about for ourselves.
That’s meant to be EMP not EFD effect. Though I was thinking about using the later to help eliminate the previous.
Mamma mia, at’sa some spicy EMP!
