Heisman?


Perhaps this is some foreshadowing involving Heavy Infantry special movement rules? (think overrunning or bull rushing)

I already cited that it uses "levitation" above, according to a description of Stanley putting himself on a chair. Can you cite from the comic that it has "flight"? Can you show a single instance of the hammer actually moving sideways, not one like the most recent where a nearby dwagon could provide the sideways motion?
We know he was outside the window, and then was inside the window. You can assume that the purple gave him the lateral motion, but that's inventing something that isn't shown. There's no dwagon shown in the last panel, so deciding that a dwagon gave Stanley his lateral motion through the broken window and into his chair is unsupported by the comic.
Bit confused...

In the last pic of page 109, Stanley is still outside and the view is from inside to outside, but there's a throne floating directly behind him.

What does that mean?

I was really confused by what you could mean, but I think I see what your problem is - that grey "slab" in front of him in the last panel isn't the ledge - it's his desk. He flew in through the smashed window and sat down on his throne, which has its back to the broken window and the desk in front of it.
Just to quote myself a little bit:

For whatever reason, he really didn’t want to lose Hamster right now. The thought of it actually kinda...hurt. Scared him, even.


Im spelling it out for you: Stanley is being mindcontrolled into switching the capital. Could (still) be Maggie, could be Charlie or an unknown third party. Point being having Spacerock becoming the GK capital is someone else's goal entirely.
Yeah, a bunch of people also mentioned that too. Remains to be seen. Seems a bit Chekhov's gun and all.

Huh?

He was outside the window, which was intact.
He called for a purple, which shattered the window.
Then he went (or possibly was pushed by the sonic) inside the window.

Personally I think that he needed the dwagon solely to break the window, but is it really important?

Fixed that for you. Marked it with bolds and underlines in case you're too lost in the epileptic forest to see it.

Well, it's difficult for me to understand the 'Huh?' when what follows it is reasonable except for the parenthetical. Sonic blasts from purples have never been shown to do anything other than damage people and structures. So assuming that without evidence is foolish. Just as Kreistor assuming that the purple flew him into the room and managed to vanish before Stanley's little butt was even firmy in his seat is foolish.

Duh! Now I see. I think I was thrown (parden the pun) by how very close the throne is to the window, but you can see this in the image before. My eye just mistook the back of the throne in the image before as part of the wall decorations.

Gettin old y-see :|

See, the first thing I thought of was the githyanki...


I'd reckon that logo anywhere!

But a quick wikipedia search made me see that we may be both right.

I don't get the mazel tov thing - it means "good luck" right?

I don't know all the specifics (not Jewish), but I believe it has to do with the fact that they break a glass at weddings, and mazel tov would be said then.


The 'SMASHING' Pumpkins reference seems to cover the 'smashing' of the Glass...that also explains the Mazel Tov.


Yea, this is O L D news but I was revisiting the older material.

Smashing Pumpkins. Gish. Rocking album. Number 9 on the album is....Window Paine. Many consider it the best tune on the album except for the words. It rocks regardless.
