Which makes it funny because you'd have more chance surviving a life or death suicide mission than an evening with the Soldier.
The baboon uterus stuff was an obvious setup, but it was funny. The plutonium bit-- it was so long ago that Meet the Director came out, and it was such a clever-but-throwaway line that I question if it was intentional or not. If it was, it's genius. If it wasn't, it's just a fantastic coincidence. It's like a lightning strike that runs through the entire comic series. Even going back to the WAR comic (which was like, the first serious comic?) the Administrator was adhering to her own rules in regard to what she says in MTD. So basically.. the entire thing could have been averted if Grey Mann bought some cameras and didn't meet the mercs in person like a fucking moron.
It's like poetry.
Didn't several people here predict Demo's blood alcohol content was what would kill the blood sucking robots?
his body turning itself into a distillery was what made it actually possible while being comical about it.
I like WAR! comic's Soldier so much more than the new Soldier. Of course, it's probably because Soldier drank lead-poisoned water, but I wish they would remove the lead from Soldier or something in Issue #7
Using CBR/PDF files is only the beginning of the problem when attempting to make a transfer to print version.
Take this series of panels.
There's a pseudo animation that lends itself well to webcomics, but would be difficult to accomplish in print outside of using multiple plastic transparency sheets or repeating panels that look mostly identical.
I feel like the comics are just that much better when you click and a character animates slightly.
I mean don't get me wrong, if theres a physical version released I'll definitely buy it, but I think something is going to be lost in translation.
The Meet the Team videos and initial comics like WAR! (which directly references Meet the Spy) work off the logic that there are RED and BLU teams of nine mercs (although, apart from Spies, we never see two of the same guy in one story).
But starting with Loose Canon there seem to be just nine mercs with no red/blue duplicates. They wear both red and blue colors but are written as the same characters (e.g. Soldier is mentioned as Merasmus' roommate).
"loose canon" is right; it's just a game I should really just relax
Why does TFC sniper's rifle keep changing its appearance?
I could be imagining, but I vaguely remember that being mentioned in some way or another officially.
The flaw in the theory is that Tom Jones's afterlife is [I]also[/I] playing foosball with god, which doesn't really fit.
One thing I didn't get when TFC Sniper was killed, what did he mean by "I'm sitting on a-" right before he died?
The comics have established that there is one Soldier regardless of what color clothes he is wearing:
...so is the implication that these are the same individual Soldier as well?
Maybe it's just that the colors they are represented by change but canonically we're always following the same team?
in any event
It would be insanely surprising if the TF2: Brotherhood of Arms mercs are one of the other teams.
I mean this isn't exactly a small detail. It's pretty much the core nature of the whole key conflict.
Regardless of what Pinkerton says, clones are already canon. Have been for a while.
But since the current lore is denying that part of its own existence, I doubt we'll be seeing a proper explanation.
90% of meet the spy is Blu spy talking about Red Spy.
I don't think the entire "there are doubles of the same person" thing will ever be explained.
Redmond and Blutarch both hired identical teams of mercenaries in the 1800's, they just repeated the mistakes over 3 generations.
How has nobody pointed out that Spy is wearing a custom tailored Louis Crabbemarche jacket. Crabbemarche, if my 3 years of French class haven't failed me, means Crabwalk.
Hard to say who my favourite merc was in this.
Probably demoman though, the fucking eye conversation with medic is 10/10
Just a reminder that TFC Engineer is TF2 Engineer's dad
