A new game AND another neck to snap? That’s gotta be irresistible.

Guess we’ll see if the Troll’s serum worked or not then 😀

It reminds them the feeling of peeling human skin…
Wait, when did Zeke do that?
Don’t know…maybe between Ethan’s respawns 🤔

ethan going alone is all fine and dandy, but leaving Scott alone may turn out to be a bad idea

Yes we know random person. For the last 7 strips Ethan dying was predicted. We know people want him to get his powers back. It will happen when it’s time, which can take many more strips as Tim is telling a story with some logic, and not some random death.

From a character development standpoint, a random death is so empty. Ethan needs to grow and be willing to sacrifice himself for something, transitioning from a guy with powers cosplaying a hero, to becoming an actual hero.

Anything less would be unsatisfying from a story perspective.

No, from what I’ve seen that’s pretty common.

Who didn’t use to love that new game smell? using your fingernail to slice through the little strip that held the centre of the case open, or the subtle click of peeling apart the freshly printed instruction booklet for the first time?

I imagine its akin to some rich collector unsealing some vintage wine. Digitial just isn’t the same, man.

This is that moment when, for a blissful (if perhaps small) period, Ethan’s not single-mindedly fixated on mortality. This is where he can grow as a character.

Sooooo….Ethan left the mobility-impaired object of Zeke’s rage alone in the car in the dark?

Oof.

It looks like the title reads “Bowser”, but I can’t be sure.

Now I’m a little curious about Ethans powers if he still has them. If Zeke starts removing body parts and organs, but let’s the wound heal, when he dies will he respawn minus a leg or automatically get the leg back? Could Zeke turn Ethan into the minimal amount left and just forget him to live that existence forever?

There are suggestions that this is how it works. There were some experiments, most notably with blood. Ethan drained himself of blood. If done too quickly the blood would disappear. If he survived for some time and kills himself later the blood stays. The idea was he returns to his last healthy state, like a save state. However, I think the easiest explanation is that it is a game death mechanism. With so many games and death mechanics, it is up in the air how it will respond given a certain time. This is why I think he ‘dies’ sometimes… Read more »
