I'm not sure if many people still browse these forums as the talkbox on the main page seems to be the most active area. Eh, I prefer here for longer posts.
By the way, if you're too lazy to look up the word in this thread's title, see panel 2.
I fail to see the point of bringing up rape in the context of this storyline. It's only rape if Mandy forces herself on the Dude without his permission. Just being persistant isn't wrong. Plus, if the Dude can fend off a T-Rex with naught but a cricket bat, I'm sure he's in no danger of being overpowered.
Brainwarping is still possible, though not likely to have the intended response at this point (in the flashback).
Anyway, I'm liking the art and the mix of historical revelations--both the character-defining and the mundane.
