Seriously though, this is great. And also, looks like pride comes before a fall from the look of that harpoon.
OH NO HER HAT!!!!
Also hunter, as we have all established, is a sneaky bastard. Bun now that he’s melted one of her pistols she has good reason to start using the brass one as her second pistol while she fights. Caustic Potash rounds and all.
Also we all see the grappling hook or is it my imagination.
One thing I do have to question though is how does he keep is gloves from spontaneously combusting? Does he only heat a certain area and can therefore only heat the gun whilst keeping his mittens nice and cool?
I reckon i’m going to have to do an archive binge after this chapter just so i can get more of the implied action into some of these scenes i’ve read after i caught up a few months ago.
Oh WOW! the effects of the falling man on fire are just superb! and OUCH on several accounts, not the least of which is Vane and the clonk on the head.
So he DID mean to throw her from the train! He even had an accomplice that he summarily silenced!
Vane was able to catch herself before falling. Did Hunter count on that? Hunter *could* have followed up with a molten metal blast to Vane to ensure her death. Instead he napalmed Mr. shovel-wielder, her would-be killer. Sooo maybe he didn’t necessarily mean to kill her?
Can Vane even “die,” being sort of a fiery undead kinda gal?
Would Hunter KNOW whether or not she could “die?”
Is Hunter talking about an accident on a train, or will he create a TRAIN accident?!
Assuming the big shiny thing isn’t Hunter’s in the first place, and he does not intend to re-create the most expensive silent movie shot, how in the heck does he intend to carry away something that big?
Is that a wolf in the background?
OH THE QUESTIONS!!!!!!!
Probably a coyote, or a mix. Wolves tend to stay clear of human things.
She uses gunpowder in her bullets doesn’t she? How come that pistol didn’t explode when he melted it?
She uses a chemical compound (can’t remember the specific one) that combusts in water in a pistol with a brass reciever. Her normal pistols are the ones with white metal recievers.
Beg pardon for the misspelled “receivers”.
He melted one of her normal pistols.
You can see him take it from her in the last page.
It is amazing that you can get that much action into six panels…
Once again a wonderful update.
And happy Mother’s Day.
Miss Black looks irate in the third panel. Maybe “irate” is too light a word.
Wow. I have to come back when I have more time and ponder these. There is a lot happening in these panels (like Tie Toter said!).
You must have grinned at my mention of Ms Black’s hat’s longevity, given the loss here.
And it’s another testament not only to her quick thinking, but to her resilience immediately after a shovel to the head (great sound effect – works perfectly for the sound of a shovel) that she can get off the grappling hook that fast.
Oh – and I can’t think of a more dramatic camera angle for the hat-loss shot than from below the coupling. Wonderful as usual. I can hear the train wheels and the wind suddenly deafening from there. It makes the “Ptonk!” that much louder over all that noise.
I don’t know if this has been asked before, Erin, but I was curious if John Henry Hunter’s name comes from John Henry “Doc” Holliday.
