Honestly, I got nothing else right now. Other things on my mind.

Mind Break and a grey matter joke? ugh. While yes Mind break on a massive scale destroying a civilization in this comic's world is possible, I feel this strip really doesn't fit the mood of what is going on. Also Mind break has almost always been used for a joke, now treating it serious, seems tasteless. On the other hand, if contact with the Heart does that to any Seer and it requires a Seer to find it, it may MAY be written well.

EDIT: Its a joke to make him laugh from election stress so we can almost let it pass.

If I remember right, if Dominic didn't have that Vacation he would have had a mindbreak.
Brett:Yeah? How about I break your face instead?!
Rachel:I invite you to try, Taggerty.
KRAK
Brett:AAAAAGGH!
Rachel:I break things with my face.

He's an uncontrollable arachnophobic cyborg on the edge. She's a provocative impetuous detective in the wrong place at the wrong time. They fight crime!

While Michael made a crack about the mindbreak in the vacation lead-up (in the form of 'Let's just see what would happen if we didn't go....oh thank god we are'), I don't remember them ever treating it lightly in-universe. Rilian specifically stated it was for the good of everyone that Dominic get a chance to relax and unwind.

Guy who's talking in the first panel. His character design is literally Gregory with a goatee.

From here: http://www.dominic-deegan.com/view.php?date=2008-05-18 to here:http://www.dominic-deegan.com/view.php?date=2008-05-21 makes it VERY hard to take it serious when that character says it. It has a very different feel when Rillain says it, since ya know, Rillian hasn't been used as a butt monkey his entire comic existence.

As I said, yea it should be a serious thing, but really to me it was more the wrong person said it so it is impossible for me to care.

I...had completely forgotten about that. I concede the point to you, sir.

But you see here is the problem, Prento, I believe his name was, was right even with how ridiculous he presented himself.
Brett:Yeah? How about I break your face instead?!
Rachel:I invite you to try, Taggerty.
KRAK
Brett:AAAAAGGH!
Rachel:I break things with my face.

That is true actually. Because Dominic was on the road to Mindbreak in that story arc.

PRENTO IS A GENIUS!

Plus him launching Dominic through a wall was funny.

You know, my very first post on this forum said much the same thing, jokingly. Back when I still had some faith in Mookie.

That was a long time ago now...wow.
