Accepted with sufferance.
I like the way the fire makes her eyes look.
Oh hey, are those lever-action pistols? I never noticed! Now I’ll always (inaccurately) picture Vane reloading them like the Terminator… xD
I think they may actually be highly-mechanized semi-autos, and the finger guard or whatever just looks lever-action. Did Erin ever clarify?
Yeah, the gun conversation has pretty much been had. A quick comments search turned up some of its iterations here (re: the rifle, but applicable) and here. In summary and in conclusion, Volcanic/Henry-style lever action once, but no more.
(Thanks for all your comments, BTW, Wazz )
Reminds me of the “Mare’s Leg”, a carbine cut down to the point it could be holstered like a pistol – and cocked with the same kind of flip-spin you see the Terminator doing with that shotgun:
I feel kind of dumb for zeroing in on something so specific, but I really love the drawing on the barrels and buckets.
“Found the other one a piece downstream.”
“…a piece”? I’m unfamiliar with the expression.
“A piece” is an older western expression for “some distance.” It’s still used in some places. Where I live, we say “a ways,” as in, “you’re not going to want to that far– it’s quite a way(s) away.”
just love this page.
I thought that nice Mr. Flint was gonna’ get his ass handed to him sneaking up on Vane like that.
Oh my, panel 2 –> is Henry Fonda in Once upon a time in the West!!!!! 8D
Dunno if this reference was conscious or accidental, but anyway, I absolutely super love all the references you do to classical westerns
