Right off the bat, I want to say that I was exhausted when I wrote this, and exhausted when I put it together, so... sorry!

The gist that I was trying to get across is that John still believes he's finding Sylene and saving her, so finding the rebel base in the middle of the city is kind of weird for him...

But I'll be perfectly honest, this is one of those scripts that I don't feel I accomplished my objectives very well, and I'm not terribly impressed with it...

And now I'm going to go pass out for lots of hours. Have a great week everyone!

I can picture the Phantom's face if he *did* have a hideout there

Can't wait for the hilarious shenanigans that will occur when everyone converges at the Togm factory.

Ok, it's official; John is a zombie now. That guy is gaunt...

In other news, I snickered twice while reading this comic, so it was by no means a failure, Magravan. (Also, reading MatthewJA's comment).

This pleases me immensely.

@Linden: hilarious shenanigans? More like John being "recognised" as Thomas, and/or recognised as human, and/or Chad doing that unpleasant something which probably involves Beth and/or Thomas and/or R.Z. Oh, and probably someone re-dying.

Well the Phantom IS a genious, so I'll bet he is hiding in the TOGM factory.

Makes perfect sense, and I have a bridge to sell anyone who is interrested.

Ahhhh, I really need to figure out how to do proper reply links on this...

@Skrael - I'm not always down on myself, so I think that earns me the right to say I wasn't pleased with my efforts when it's the case.

Granted, I don't always come out and say "YES! I REALLY FEEL LIKE I NAILED IT ON THIS ONE!!!", but there are times where I have pride in the ones I think I got right... This one, I don't think I got right.

@MatthewJA - With a face like that, I'm not sure I want to know what kind of hideout it would be....

@Linden - To be honest, I almost wish I hadn't spent as much time with the other goings on and just sent them to the Factory sooner, since it would give me more time to play around in there before the end of this book...

@MarshmallowGherkin - More zombie than the zombies!

@MatthewJA - FINALLY! Well guys, I think this comic has officially ended. As you may have known, our objective for making this comic was for someone to further appreciate Matt. Now that we've achieved that objective, I'm not sure there is any point to continuing :D :D

Seriously though, I love that fact that your comments add humour to the experience, Matt. Thanks for that :D

@aok666 - Yeah.. that stuff sounds pretty funny, doesn't it?

@T.Gatto - That sounds like sound logic to me. Exactly how much is this bridge that you are speaking of?

You know, one day someone is seriously going to want to sell a bridge, perhaps for tolls or whatever else, and because of all of the scammers throughout the years, they wont be able to convince anyone that they are legitimate...

Really, you're only hurting the future sale of bridges by these hoaxes!

@Magraven I'm sorry, you are completely correct, and I should be ashamed.

From now on I will only seek to build upon strong tried and true economic principles, like Beta Max VCR tape rentals, Enron, and the White Star Ship line.

That sounds like good clean financial planning. Are you looking for investors?

@MatthewJA: I don't see panic, chaos and disorder so your work here is not done.

@aok666 that's because that's MY work :p

@Muchacho NL: LIRL. I based that comment on my dad's favourite tie, which says "panic, chaos, disorder: my work here is done".

@everyone: Have there been any planes in TOGMverse yet? I haven't spotted any but maybe I wasn't looking. Are the zombie prosthetics altitude-safe or would they go bang?

@MatthewJA - I certainly hope not! Good free labour is hard to find!

@aok666 - That's because you can't see me scrambling to write the next comics :P

@Muchacho NL - Co-workers!

@aok666 - Planes exist, but would be limited in use... Probably more small scale, because the big ones take a lot of highly technical people to keep them running.

@Mag: cool, I didn't know we ran a Foreign Office :D

Well, Chaos inc. might open up an office in Canada :p

@Mag, can I brag, can I, can I, can I? :D

@Magravan: lots of highly technical zombies no? If normal people can be aerospace engineers - if SOPHIE MCELLHILL (very unpleasant person who was my neighbour in halls of residence for a year and tried to kick my door down twice) can be an aerospace engineer - then surely some Threes can be too?

@Indea - I ... don't know what you mean? :)

@Muchacho NL - Sure, if you want... I don't know how many people will read it and I'm going to announce it officially on the next comic.

@aok666 - Haha, I get the feeling that you are unimpressed with Ms. McEllhill... :) But to keep the jumbo jets going, you have a lot of people involved... It's just not worth it.. Robert might have a private jet, but otherwise it's probably be a pretty cramped flight..
Muchacho NL (Guest) edit delete reply
Then I'll wait it out for the 'official announcement' :D
