Chapter 4: Trouble Every Day, page 81

I call TAZ an “alternate history” comic, sometimes. This is definitely gonna be one of those times that description really, really applies.

That flag on the coffee mug is real. Everything else coming up is definitely not.

    I just love the work you do with the expresions all over the comic ^^

  2. Wood says:

    Huh, what color is that flag supposed to be ?

  3. TM says:

    Is this like ‘Free Tibet’ or something? Or is it like ‘free cookies’. Either way you got yourself a deal.

    • Thatty says:

      Gonna go with ‘Free Tibet’.
      From the info page, referring to the universe of TAZ:
      “…a couple of wars never happened.”
      Gonna bet that this is coming into play right now.
      Who’dya think’s holding the cup, though?
      Going to assume that it’s Biggs holding it. Maybe he’s going to give us a history lesson, like he did with the Oarlock.

    EJ: the character most likely to get either shivved in a truck-stop shower stall or put on a registry of some sort. And regardless of spellcheck, I believe “shivved” is a real word, or maybe “shiv-ved.” Or shanked.

  5. JWF says:

    OMG. I can’t wait to see what morsel of alternate historical fact this pertains to :)

  6. Elk says:

    The suspense is killing me, lol. I don’t see EJ living for much longer, though.

  7. maritza says:

    I dislike EJ since that time he wanted to watch that other guy fuck a semicomatose minor.

    Biggs is okay. I like Biggs. And this guy is like a tumor hanging off his scrote. Please kill him?

    free australia?
    i’ll take it

  9. PopRox says:

    C’mon, look at that oversized sweater. Its gotta be Ben holding the mug.

  10. devo says:

    Hello, England? I have something you might want…that’s right. All the tea.

  11. malex says:

    A watched pot never hits 3:10, EJ

  12. John K says:

    Love panel 3, nice.

  13. Jerry says:

    Is Free Australia anything like Free Luna? I hope so.

  14. Drakey says:

    Free Australia with purchase of equal or greater value!

  15. The Raven says:

    Ooh, we’re about to be introduced to the last character (if I recall correctly) from the old bonus art gallery. Is it still possible to get there somehow?

  16. Jyllaby says:

    I find it really cool that you do this on the same day Sydney gets blanketed with dust that turns the whole city red.

  17. Kat says:

    I like the way EJ was begging in his spare time. It looks like someone was supposed to meet him there at 3 and since he was waiting he figured he’d solicit passerby.


  18. Vexbeast says:

    Free Australia with every mug?

  19. Niall says:

    And Australia enters the comic, although not how I would’ve liked it to. I’m getting anticipatory goosebumps down my spine, and not the good ones either.

  20. Night-Gaunt says:

    Yes that is the Aborigine flag: black over red with a yellow disc which is the sun.
