Most shocking Bruno EVER

Postby Lynn on Fri Apr 28, 2006 12:02 pm

I've kept silent this long week, awaiting today's (Friday, Apr 28th) strip. I have a slight advantage on the average reader, being that i see the strips some week or so ahead, so I can color them in time for release, and today's strip shocked me.

Sure, I find it hard to believe that Fiona is permanently done for, but even coloring her poor little decapitated head was somehow very sad to me.

Fiona is dead... long live Fiona. (sniffle)

I'm pretty sure it's the doppleganger. But yes... that was a pretty good nod to The Godfather.

it _must_ be the doppleganger. ian knows we would come after him with tar and feathers and pitchforks if he killed off fiona!

although i would think the doppleganger might revert to its natural self when dead....maybe it's just some anonymous microdragon?

The "x's for eyes" feature certainly seems to rule out the possibility of some form of prank... and it's a pretty gory strip overall considering the head-on-a-pike that can also be seen. I know we've seen similar stuff in the padt, most notably the recent DaVinci Code parody (I don't think the impaling of Cathy-Elysia really counts) but still, wow.

Overall: eeeuugh. :o

I mean... Ooooh! The suspense!

Who says that, if it's the doppelgangster, it's necessarily dead? Is it any harder to imitate a microdragon head and pool of blood than it is to imitate a small flying animal?

Oh, sure, you could imitate the body or head of a microdragon, but there's NO WAY you could simulate the X's in the eyes! That's a supernatural power beyond the likes of mere Dopplegangsters. :D

Great comedy routine with the shock 'n' screamin' today. :D Interesting that they bleed green.

That's kind of what makes me think it's a clone. On both Kim Possible and Danny Phantom, the clones (doppelgangers?) degenerate into green ooze... so, that's why I'm thinking that this isn't the real Fiona.


I'll admit... I'm grasping at straws a bit. :nervous:

Well, based on today's strip, I don't think we have to worry about that.

No, but...

Postby Connacek on Tue May 09, 2006 8:58 am

No, we don't have to worry about Fiona's powers of good, but I do find myself wondering, if we can attach Ellis to a shapeshifter, does he then get to shift? Or maybe shift everything but his head, that'd be funny.
Note two: Fiona has powers of good? I thought she too was a bandit, so to speak, kind of greedy, just smarter at it than the people she hangs with.

no, fiona has a nasty streak of honesty in her. fair play, justice - all sort of non-bandity things.

and i knew ian knew better than to kill her off!

now bruno just has to back off of the deal...
