The Other Things

Here’s my latest comic:

What are those things on the tarp that aren’t the eye ripper? Starting at the upper left and going clockwise:

  1. These are repeaters for the capture dust’s signal, which is weak and only travels about 200 meters. In the bunker, they’re commonly called ‘carrots’.
  2. That’s an ordinary paintball rifle.
  3. That’s the Tesla Gun. This shoots a lot of current in a cone in front of it with a very short range. As Ada says, it ‘looks like a Buck Rogers rifle’.
  4. That is a Plumbus from Rick and Morty. It tickled me to throw it in.

I’ve done something to mess up my posting process these last couple weeks. I look forward to automating it.
