Using your face as a punching bag was probably not the diversion Tripp had in mind but he took one for the team. A really hard one, right in the face. I wonder if this will take a little off the shine of Tripp’s ‘Pie in the sky’ idea of Coco. You travel across light years to save this girl and you’re rewarded with… a nose-busting right hook? Frankly, that sucks, but it’s better than actually dying from repeated blows to the face from your dream girl.
I realize this strip is a bit of a weird one… I broke with the linear story a bit and went out of order as sort of an experiment with my inner Tarantino. Rest assured, this gets fleshed out more. Since Tripp was knocked out and disoriented I went for making the strip that way too.
