I just can’t shake it… I’m sitting here, looking at this strip… and the damn thing is called “Wipeout!”… and so, I’ve had that song (or at least the first verse and change) on repeat in the little radio station I’ve got playing in my head.
Ah ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha haaaa…. let’s do this.
Still being trailed by those Sky-Bikes (for like the third week runnin’) Clark and Bob continue their hasty journey across the desert. Bob begins to pray to the Fellowship Elders for guidance. Clark thinks this is a great idea… and, recalling Bob’s odd ability to project images, suggests he project something big and dangerous to trip their Consortium Pursuers up once and for all.
Bob digs deep and projects… the Daily Planet Building! The Sky-Bikers freak out, fearing they’re just seconds away from becoming wall-pizza, and so, they bail! The building vanishes just as suddenly as it appeared.
Our heroes survive to drive another day (or, in our case, week). Actually, Clark looks back at the baddies… and thinks to himself that he would really appreciate some answers. And so, I gotta wonder if next week will be an interrogation strip? That could be a very good thing… or, a very bad thing.
Well, at least something happened, right?
Bob Galt got an opportunity to use his powers, and shine for a moment… which, was cool. It was also like the first time in all these twenty-eight weeks (to date) that I didn’t wanna punch him in the face… so, there’s that too!
Really not much more to say… it was a creative way to duck their pursuers, and really probably wasn’t the worst thing I’ll read today!
Tomorrow: Mockingbird Unmasked… for real this time! Prepare to be whelmed…
