    They couldn’t have relocated the whole population (even if there are only a few hundred of them) using a single coup. Of course, the other vessels might no longer function, but that would seem a little strange.

    Contrary to what some have said, Dick needed to get away from Marina and did the right thing walking away. He had become part of her problem, and is not in a position to offer any emotional support for multiple reasons. That needs to be someone else who is caring and objective, and not inside her emotional firestorm.

    What I see here is a youngish woman trying to find comfort in the midst of her very real grief and getting the signals all mixed up in the process. She misinterpreted Dick being kind and gentle with her (as he and most real “gentlemen” would be anyway) for something more personal, and made a huge mistake about it. Dick is doing the best he can to let her down gently but firmly. He could have got very angry and clearly understands her conflict. But that was never going to be an easy conversation for him.

    That’s just excellent writing for such a short sequence in a comic strip, and the emotions in the drawing are really raw and in our faces. Brilliant work team.

    Puts me in mind of 1812: “The British and Canadians will be a pushover; we can just walk in and take over.”

    “Any AI that can pass the Turing Test could also fail it deliberately, and we could never tell the difference.”

    Where did that ring finish up in the end?

    Why does Garfield hate Mondays when he doesn’t do anything more than on the weekend? And (I guess) he doesn’t have Jon underfoot either.
