Sooo… Tiki Wiki might not have been a traitor after all. Maybe, as the information freak he poses to be, he might want to become a friend of the cuckoos only to learn more about their race, what their weaknesses are, how they plan to contact the galatic community in the future, and where exactly they ran to lay more eggs when things got tough, so this time… they can be killed for good.
Poor Will on the other hand probably won’t be ressurrected in enough time to prevent Shanna from succumbing to Mark. Oh the drama.
Will! And now we have hope.
“Yeah, turns out there IS an afterlife, but it’s all just a jumbled, disorganized, endless realm of chaos. But hey, they have Scrabble!”
Do the Limbo!
So is this some kind of hypercube thing? Maybe the “weapon” switched Will’s place with an already-prepared skeleton?
But wait. Will. Your best friend met God earlier. Didn’t he?
Considering how willingly Tiki Wiki was able to tell the Hand to run scans on the skeleton, perhaps it belonged to Future Will…?
And Tiki Wiki instead has his own hyperspace pocket?
have you guys really never seen a quantum pocket before?
the DNA will match for one simple reason Tiki recovered wills skeleton from his grave and tossed it into the pocket where time dosen’t exist so it didn’t age
@Joraiem Alternatively, it might be a ChronoTrigger like thing, and his friends travelled through time in order to swap him for a mannequin at the last second.
My guess is that will has been digitized. All this pop cultural ephemera floating around is exactly what I’d expect to find in Tiki Wiki’s database.
I dunno about digital, but Wiki Tiki was definitely telling the truth about storing artifacts- either that or Will was a hell of a lot more materialistic in life than he let on.
Wait, so the current story isn’t just leading to the death of every character one by one over the next few months? I’m relieved, but also actually a little disappointed.
Wait, wait- didn’t Rikk actually *talk* with the Almighty?
He comes back to us with the turn of the tide.
Yeah, yeah. More than one sharp reader of this fine graphic odyssey called it (not me; you know who you are). Will [might] still exist[s]. He might even be alive. I still hate Tiki Wiki all the same, though, with or without his magical sonic screwdriver. Even Charlotte seems more likable than him at the moment. Why, do you ask? Because Tiki Wiki’s gizmos may be able to bring Will back, but I seriously doubt he’s carrying a device that can mend the shreds of Shanna’s sanity that Tiki Wiki ripped apart with his little charade (if, in fact, it’s true that he just pretended to disintegrate Will ). According to the time travelers’ version of the future, losing Will is a blow from which Shanna will never recover. I imagine that knowing that Will isn’t completely gone [or not gone at all] will have some positive effect on Shanna (which implies we could see a less sucky version of the future), but Mrs. Erixon still went through hell because of TW. So **** TW, **** him in the ear and **** him in the nostrils for that
“Yarns o’ Yearning”…
Is it bad that I can actually imagine a setting for this title to make perfectly sense?
And by imagine I mean the general premise and some characters are forming in my mind as I write this?
yah know….just a thought..but what if Tiki wiki IS will? we’ve seen will dive deep into roles, esp. when shits about to get real. and i thought about it, theres no telling what kind of technology exists in the future with the cukoo’s. what if tiki was created from Will’s skull (created when will was ‘killed’ in the other timeline) with fractured memories. as time progressed, he felt he would need to ‘preserve’ the timeline to a certain point, esp. now that we know that will is merely being preserved like someone predicted a while back (as data). esp. if he’s trying to find a way to help bring the cukoo’s down? just a thought from da amron’ed one.
Hey, I have a thought. Maybe that thing he zapped Will with was a digitizer for Tikipedia, or whatever that thing is called in the future.
And now he’s part of it…
Next chapter GO!
I am very happy he is not dead. But I find it a little weird he is an atheist. In the universe he lives in it seems like an odd sentiment, like Mr. Terrific in the DC universe being one.
I mean, he’s fought demons and someone on his team has literally had conversations with God. But, I’m a deist so what do I know.
Scrabble and video games! Maybe he’ll find a quarter floating around in there somewhere…
Who sees scrabble? I see my little ponies
Khavren, look at all that random junk. They HAVE to have Scrabble. They HAVE to.
Called it! Soooo called it.
Who called it? I called it.
I called it!
@Moebius: With history of insanity in Shana’s family, she’s so going to snap when she sees him. With your permission I’ll **** TW in the other ear.
Now, now, Will. Atheism is not a dogma. If you’re a true rationalist you should be pleased at being proven wrong.
But then, in a world where demons and hell and magic and whatnot have already been proven to exist, the only way you could be an atheist is dogmatically? Of course, you’re ALSO a Libertarian, so I guess all bets are off.
Magic exists, but they’ve made “gods” crumble before. Who’s to say what power is what?
As for the anger if he’s dead, Christianity is right and atheism is wrong he’s certainly in purgatory here floating among a bunch of random junk and that to me seems like a cause for anger.
*Shrug* I dunno. If it were me, I’d just be too curious about what’s going to happen next to waste time being angry.
Also, it’d be interesting to see if Paschal’s Wager was legit. Would it be better to lie and pretend to believe, than honestly disbelieve? I mean, if you can’t bring yourself to believe, does He prefer fake reverence or honest rejection? That’s what I’d want to know.
This isn’t afterlife. It’s where Tiki Wiki holds his stuff!
Welcome to Tiki Wiki’s crotch pocket, population: Will + two tons of 20th century junk.
For the record, in the future that Tiki Wiki is from, Shanna didn’t snap. Marc did. Shanna actually stayed sane even though Will was dead.
… Will’s an atheist? Didn’t his friend Rikk totally meet God that one time?
From Will’s point of view, Rikk claims that he met a being that he believed to be God.
Even if Will believes that it wasn’t a hallucination, he has no reason to believe it was God. The only evidence is that Rikk said so. And Rikk sees what he wants to see sometimes.
There were disbelievers surrounding many people in the bible who met God also. It’s not really surprising at all.
Well sure, but then… how does Will explain the whole thing with Mist? I dunno, it just seems odd to me that in this universe, Will of all people would be an atheist. If some of the new members who weren’t there for that whole fiasco were, that’s fine, totally understand that. But him?
I guess after the old teams last adventure, he doesn’t really trust any actual proof of one true god. Considering he’s a libertarian as well, I think its perfectly understandable from that point of view. I mean, how can you tell that any god isn’t man made, as in, artificial. The 23 die of power bends reality. In the end, an atheist or agnostic point of view is at least relateable. I’m not an atheist, but I at least understand it.
If I were on Rick’s team, I’d be an atheist too.
Boss says he had a vision while in a coma? Hey everyone has issues.
Ex-FBI guys tried to shoot him and missed? Neat! Luck, magic, whatever.
heh i was not expecting this.
Gah… if you think THIS is why Shanna is crazy, what do you think of the last few years of the strip? She has moments where her head is screwed on straight but they are certainly punctuated by “get this girl a nice white coat” moments as well
Will’s best friend met an entity who _claimed_ to be God. In fact, he and Will have both met several entities claiming to be gods of various sorts, and several other, apparently equally powerful, entities who didn’t. Why should Will believe any of them are actually gods, let alone God?
