Aww. Knowing the whole truth isn’t always a good thing. It’s like Delirium said in The Sandman: Brief Lives: “Not knowing is all that makes it okay, sometimes.”
Zach’s bit of perceptiveness is starting to remind me a it of Charlie Gordon from flowers for algernon; As he becomes smarter he becomes less happy as the mysteries of life around him diminish.
It’ll be interesting to see what happens if Zach winds up coming down from his truth serum buzz.
Aaaaaaand now he’s going to get hung upside down so blood rushes into his already overstimulated brain. I foresee this being… I don’t even know.
Well, he’s about to learn if he’s afraid of heights. Maybe he can remain calm by analyzing why he’s scared out his mind…
Anyone else think of that scene in Labyrinth when David Bowie’s character swung up? …No?
Can you say ouch?
Imagine the strain that would be on his knees keeping straight in that position.
Knowing the whole truth is a lot safer than catching little parts of it out of context. The whole truth is always understandable; relate-able. It’s what we don’t get that alienates us.
Anyway, that contraption looks like a good way to break someone’s legs.
I’m actually less worried about Zach than I was. When I read “brief starring role” in the strip where he got injected, I inferred that either this was going to be a Flowers for Algernon deal or he was going to get killed somehow. But a short burst of celebrity works as well.
Is that phone going to stay in his pocket while he’s inverted?
Of course it is! It’s a Spiderman-phone after all!
Wait a minute. “I was given this power to help people” – is this one area in which he’s conning himself?
