I don’t get why everyone always acts like domino chains aren’t ridiculously easy to disrupt. Even if you don’t want to risk a massive scattering accidentally triggering something, you have plenty of other options like putting a card between two dominoes, pulling a few of them out, or even running the chain backwards.
You’re making an assumption that someone notices that the domino chain is going in time to disrupt it before the device goes off.
Also that it isn’t actually the first domino that triggers, and the rest are just for show.
Also, who REALLY has the force of will to interrupt a cool domino chain, regardless of consequences? Let’s be honest.
This is a MAD domino chain. It might not obey normal domino rules. Or maybe it does. Or maybe ocelot nipple kazoo.
You can’t say that in public!
Besides, a mad domino chain would trigger on #37, because anything in science can be measured as a 37 on a sufficiently arbitrary scale.
“Any sufficiently arbitrary scale is indistinguishable from magic.” –Arthur C. Clarke
…and the real sinister part about the domino chain is that it can act like a dead-man switch if there are enough fools about to accidentally set it off…
Oh god. This is the Dane’s Mad master plan! He planned everything so that he’d get locked in the freezer where it would be safe, knowing that through pure power of narrative structure, after setting up the domino chain as a trigger, there was no way somebody wouldn’t accidentally set it off.
I like how the number on the first domino is arranged.
It’s like it’s a sad little domino and upset that it got knocked over.
It took me a moment to realize it wasn’t a row of tiny obsidian golems falling in dismay.
Just a moment.
Because that would have been severely out of context.
But still, that’s not what a 2 looks like on any normal domino set.
“It took me a moment to realize it wasn’t a row of tiny obsidian golems falling in dismay.”
You’ve just worked out the dark secret on dominos….
Perhaps they are Emoticonimos.
Before this, I was unaware that there was a domino font. Now, I’m wondering what other word/sounds are in the domino lexicon…
In the unicode table, starting with codepoint U+1F030, are all the domino tile characters.
Roll me over, Romeo.
The last two panels are basically a Def Leppard song waiting to happen.
80s Hair Metal to the rescue.
He does have the hair for it.
I do believe we are about to see how the dragon gets sent back in time. I wonder if Chris joins her for the ride…
Isn’t the doomsday device more of a heat ray?
I just noticed. Is that last speech bubble coming from the dragon?
I can’t tell.
Now that I’m looking for it I’m pretty sure the dragon is speaking (look at her mouth) but that wasn’t how I parsed it on my first read through … I think this bubble should be reshaped a bit maybe ??
Chris, 20 out of 10 for style, but minus several million for poor timing.
