It only stands  to reason that E-C would have dedicated repair and "reimbursal"  teams.

Are we sure Hannerdad isn't planning to conquer the world?

An orbital mass driver, disguised as a pizza delivery service. Millions of robotic minions, just waiting to have their hidden loyalty programming triggered. Nanomachines that can be used to destroy cells within the human body.

And then there's Hannermom who we know is an evil corporate monster and at some point the two of them were apparently in love.

It may be that the only reason he hasn't launched the takeover while sittng securely in his space station is the love for his daughter who lives on earth and would be in the crossfire.


EDIT: You guys. I forgot the Hunter killer drones on Station.

Either Claire is wearing a pair of magnifying glasses as spectacles, or her eyes are about to pop out of her head.

I very much think that it is the latter. Marten isn't doing much better; I think that they're both finally coming to realise just what Hannelore's life actually is, thanks to her mother being the Daughter of the Devil and her father apparently being the God of Technomagic.

Rocket boots: because jetpacks are impractical and dangerous.

Well, they are. You've got to find a place to keep ypur jetpack after you've gotten to where you're flying, and if you don't and you walk around wearing it, it's always bumping into things, knocking things off shelves ... Boots, on the other hand, are on your feet. Though they do tend to mark up floors.

Well technically that belongs to her mother's company. But she may have sold some to Hannerdad. Even if Bob is an anthropc, I doubt those boots have enough lift to get him back into orbit. Or maybe he's just flying over to the Coffee of Doom to get a lift back with the Repair and Restitution team.

I wonder if Jeph has plans for any more instances where Hanners gets to field-test some of her dad's prototypes? This could, potentially, lead to some interesting adventures!

I am sort of wondering what kind of propulsion system his boots are using, where the fuel is apparently small enough to fit in them.

It's probably something exotic and they may not be 'rockets' in the traditional sense of the word but some strange kind of electric drive like a stationary plasma arc or ion jet. In the real world, they produce only tiny amounts of thrust (about equivalent to the weight of a piece of paper). However, QC isn't set in the real world and, apparently, doesn't have some of its physical limits!

Ah! It wouldn't be Claire if her first focus wasn't on tweaking Clinton's nose! :wink:

Seriously, I'm glad that Jeph has decided to at least make a reference to the fact that Marten has a seriously weird life and have Claire, who is, after all, an outsider, acknowledge this.

I've noticed that he's started to introduce a definite speaking pattern for Claire. She'll make a introductory statement like "I have a concern" and then wait to be asked to elaborate. I'm not sure if it's a sign of politeness or if she is nervous in social interactions and feels that she needs permission to be involved.

Continuity Note: Claire still has her hair down. So, it looks like she totally lost her hair scrunchie to the shock-wave when the Pizza Pod made its hard landing.

Man, I was pretty ambivalent about the septum piercing before. But the more I seeit, the more I dislike it. It's like my eyes focus on that instead of Claire's face now.

In truth, I barely notice it! Maybe I'm looking at the comic at too low a resolution but it isn't actually easily visible to me; it just looks like an art error!

I'd say "older brother." Something he's done before, around young ladies with childlike aspects to their personalities (such as a certain skinny, other-worldly blonde). When he's not being discombobulated, that is.

Claire basically did the same thing to Marten when they were talking to Veronica in the library a few dozen strips back. I just think it's part of their dynamic that they like taking on an ultra-mature posture and tease each other with 'sage advice'.

I think the dear punchline could have just as easily been dropped by Dora or pre breakup Angus, but it's certainly core to the relationship that Claire's the younger one and still growing up a bit/coming out of her shell and that Marten's support is helping her do that.

Father's a bit much though. Marten doesn't have the authority figure aura for that, even if he was technically her boss.

Am I the only one who thinks that this mini-arc has a televisual 'three-act' feel to it? You could divide it into a standard sitcom episode format? Something like this:

Pre-Credits Teaser - Strip 3037
Act 1 - Strips 3038 to 3041 - 'Poof' makes a lovely segment ender and has a The Simpsons bait-and-switch feel to it;
Act 2 - Strips 3042 to 3045 - Dora's intervention of common sense is another perfect act ending moment;
Act 3 - Strips 3046 to 3048 - Resolution in act 3, as always;
Epilogue - Strip 3049 - Nice closing or post-credits joke scene.

It recently occurred to me that if one of those pizza pods collides with a aircraft, Hannerdad will probably have to move in with Hanners.

Also, you have to be in the exact spot you want your pizza to arrive in 25 minutes before hand.  That's a problem.

I'm assuming that aircrafts are AI-piloted in QCverse and probably can get the memo from Station that there's a pizza drop happening. Same as the orbital railgun app.

A "buttload" is an actual measurement, next time someone tells you that they need a buttload of something, tell them 126 gallons might be a bit too much.

Seems like a pilot's union would have fought the AI aircraft.  That's before we consider small, hobby aircraft.

How is the issue of sonic booms from pizza pods resolved?

We stop using glass in buildings and use Lexan instead, and we just get use to the booms (they become like the DING of a microwave)

Is it just me or does Marten sometimes come across as less boyfriend and more parent?

I'd say "older brother." Something he's done before, around young ladies with childlike aspects to their personalities (such as a certain skinny, other-worldly blonde). When he's not being discombobulated, that is.

Funny - to me, it actually feels like he's 'younger' somehow. More at ease with himself and the relationship. I think he takes pleasure in Claire 'learning relationships' & while helping her on the way, he can re-discover that for himself.
Hmmmmh ... actually that is pretty much a parent thing. :psyduck:

Anyhow, I like their couple dynamics - it's simultaneously innocent and very earnest. They are a nice couple. I like seeing them together.

If more people thought like you, the Concorde could still be flying.

It looks like Hannerdad is going to be paying for a lot of roof repairs...
