Answer: He used his telekinesis to throw the first thing it could find, which happened to be a pan. Thankfully it wasn't the patient in 4E.
Vote for Tripp at Topwebcomics! It's Pan-tastic!
@Driftingwolf - Haha, true!
@Ink_wolf - I used Twisted Sister for photo reference
@DocSavage - Tough spot for the guy.
@nobi wan kenobi - :)
@Ultimate the Hedgehog - It's overrated. At least for comic purposes. :)
@Stumpy DaPaladin - Inspired by your post... *runs off to contact models
@nobi wan kenobi - Not on purpose.
@nobi wan kenobi - Even the best fighter in the world will take a punch from time to time. What we didn't get to see was her mad jujitsu skills when she was on the floor. The pan got there first.
@Ultimate the Hedgehog - She likes him and he saved her, she's just caught up in the moment.
@nobi wan kenobi - Indeed it would.
@Syncline - Sounds like a polygamy bonus strip is in order.
@nobi wan kenobi - Haha, point taken.
nice move both the braining and the kiss. Make sure Coco was completely unconscious for that kiss or your going to find yourself on the wrong end of a FATALITY
I swear, pots and pans make the BEST sounds!
...and in panel 1 Coco is auditioning for lead singer of a metal band.
OK we know Tripp wants Pr, er, Coco. Co, er, Proxy needs to bow out gracefully.
Does panel 3 give anyone else a boner, or is it just me?
Is Proxy still under the effect of the potion? Because there is such a thing called self control.
... by me for at LEAST 3 months.
@Driftingwolf that may be better than the look on Coco's face as she realizes that when it comes to love she can never have nice things. Ever.
@Ink_wolf even better when the sound is followed by someone going "ow! My Spleeen!"
@DocSavage yeah thats just not gonna happen. She already tried that remember? It isnt working. I dont think either girl would give up on Tripp. Unless Trip (Master of Fail, Murphy's veery Special Friend) actually makes a choice between one and the other. That is a decision everyone involved would respect (and probably regret). Fail and all.
Id try out the polyamourous card, but I feel it would only work until the Fail becomes EPIC. then... well maybe aliens or some extra-dimentional beings invade again. Thus distracting everyone from their selves long enough for one of the three to realize that it wont work out and pull some heroic self sacrifice stunt that gets said person killed. And thats the second best ending to this scenario I could come up with. The First one being a weird triangle of mutual devotion. Trip -->Coco-->Proxy-->Trip Maybe, I need to drink less ...
@nobi wan kenobi
Its not just You.
Its like that was ripped out of some dark sexy recess of my mind.
Actually the details that pop out at me imply the artist got some girls together and said " hey can you two model out this thing for me? I need to see how the hair would fall" (and how your bewbies mash together :P) "Also ill need one of you to take a light punch to the face, and have the other pose like this Twisted sister album cover"
Thats PERFECT! Now hold that pose...<draw draw draw>
@Ultimate the Hedgehog
To be fair Proxy just had her Soul-Mate (by the Word of God itself) save her from a grisly certain death.
That's right Death in all its red eyed, sharp Fanged Glory. It came just for her in the guise of a jealous lover.
I truly believe that Proxy expected the next (and last)thing she would see was a large portion of her throat between Coco's Fangs.
In such a case i would be not thinking about even near future consequences at that point, either.
But what do I know? Im just guessing here.
" hey can you two model out this thing for me? I need to see how the hair would fall"
...Epic. I'll have to use that line.
Speaking of art and models, does that line (wrinkle? scar?) across Proxy's nose seem to be getting bigger?
Tripp, you really fucked up now.
Sometimes questions just hit you at 3AM, like: If Proxy can dodge assassin's laser bolts, why can't she avoid getting cold-cocked?
I'm just saying I am not a fan of seeing Proxy going all goo-goo.
I was sure some of Proxy's other mad skillz carried over into fighting. She is, after all, very flexible and has good endurance...
"Run! I'll distract her by laying on the floor with her on top of me!"
...Well, that would distract anyone watching.
This is another of those 70s sitcom situations where polygamy could only have improved the situation.
Not that we have any real say in it, but my vote is for more frame 3 action just leading to more action and less Tripp being confused.
At least it wasn't a bed pan.
If you do a polygamy strip, bonus or otherwise, I ask that you please choose Tripp, Coco and Proxy as the trio. No one wants to see, for instance, Delia, Poe and Doctor Zed getting it on.
...Say, why was there a frying pan in a hospital room anyway?
Well, yeah...I wanna know where Tripp got a cooking pan in a hospital. That should more likely be a bedpan.
