This is getting very interesting. At least we get confirmation now that it really takes place after MLaaTR. I remember that the car with the crane is called the Armed Force but dunno about the other two, have to look that up.

Okay, not too bad pacing I guess. No, I did not forget "The Forgotten" page, I was waiting for Vexus to come back to see how she fits into all of this. Attacking the main Irken ship while the fleet's away? So, maybe two things will happen. She will destroy the ship and Irkens will seek revenge somehow, or she will take over the ship and control the Irken army herself. Or, of course, something else altogether might happen as well. Any one else's theories?

@Kingdom
I thought we already knew that O.o
Also, it's been stated how BeeAre had to make it so the events of MLaaTR occurred decades(or was it a couple centuries) prior its canon.

Wow. That's rare. The few moments where the tallest are tactical/military leaders instead of snack craving morons. Even to use their computer to figure out who their enemy is. Now the question is: Can they survive the 10 mins for the back-up to arrive, or are the tallest going to be cut short?

Nice update.
Now Please bring out Proto (Proto-Boy).

I think Vexus wants to get rid of the Irkens simple because they could interfere with her plans. We don't really know if this takes place right before/during/shortly after the bombs explosion. But the Irkens were not affected by it because the bombs went off on Earth and the Moon. And maybe because Zim still can contact them, they will do something which could ruin Vexus' plans, so getting rid off them is the best thing to do.

Huh. That middle soldier's female. Almost didn't notice.

Also, I'm kinda glad that they're posting the full page image in the News section threads now.

Yeah, I gotta admit, I'm lovin' this situation, with the reinforment coming in only 10 mins, and the Tallest having to survive that, but seriously, I side with Megadon here. Bring out Proto Boy.

I'm glad this comic is ran by an intelligent writer, instead of a bunch of orgasmic fanboys.

We're two damn pages into this section, calm the fuck down. If Proto-Boy works in this section, it'll happen, if not then he'll be used for something else.
Stufflikehearts - He is a Sith Lord. I love Blood Lord :3
Jeffffey - Blood, you look at the information someone says, look over what really happened, and reply in a way that makes them realize what they were really thinking.
Light10s - Blood Lord! Your avatars are becoming more epic. You make me feel like getting on all fours and submitting my loyalty and obedience to you.
Fievel - Numerous campaigns and conquests, countless bodies decaying after the abandonment of victorious battlefields. Such is the life of Blood Lord.
Dusk_Imp - Blood Lord is like a celebrity here. Everything he does is pure awesome. ALL HAIL BLOOD LORD
Doctress Who - Why couldn't there be a Blood Lord in every forum? It would make life so much easier.

Give the other comics' lack of direct, I really wish we could have covered something a bit more compelling, like the bomb, Jack's story, Samantha's backstory, or anyone of the three directions we could have gone at the end of chapter 10. But like Blord said, we're only two pages in, so this could be directly linked to something more important (like what I listed above). And I trust BR's judgement.

Yeah, that's a new one by me. I wonder if this will be the standard from now one.

Just wait, BR is a good writer and this definitely will be connected with the bomb. The bomb was detonated by Black Eden, who allies with Vexus who controls the Cluster and is now attacking The Massive. So it already is connected... kinda.

I'm glad they took this route, we need a break from the bomb situation. Jack's story is something for later imo. And I really love to see Samantha's backstory, but she still might be important because we do see her spirit. So that leaves the option open for her backstory to be revealed later on.

I was wrong about the robot intruder being an Autobot. I don't think any Transformer characters have shown up in this comic. Are Bleedman or any of the other writers a fan of Tranformers? Lots of robots do appear in this comic so a transformer might show up eventually. This was a pretty good page with the battle. I'm wondering why Vexus wants to kill the Irkens but that will probably be explained in the next update.

BR's the only writer for PpGD, Nina. You're welcome to ask him.

@Nina. I just now noticed it but you're right. There have been a ton of robots in the comic that I really didn't pay a lot of attention to. But as for adding a Transformer I really don't see that coming. Not unless X is teamed up with a Decepticon, or controls the Dino-Bots. Besides that I don't really see them adding a Transformer. Truthfully I see them adding a Megazord from power rangers before they add a Transformer, but that's just me.

I think the middle Irken soldier on the bottom panel is Tak. The one who tried to replace the planet's core with candy.

But again we may only be 2 pages in but I like how this story is going so far. It's just so direct, while still leaving a few, if not only 1, questions for the reader. But seriously lets see them step up the action a bit.

Welcome to the Forum Gojira. And don't worry that's another fun thing about snafu-comics. You don't what you're going to see next whether it's from your childhood or someone else's childhood.

Any number of things?

I believe in BR, I do. However "kinda connected" just isn't good enough. After getting screwed over by GT so many times, I wish we could have seen something more cogent. But again, only two pages in, so yeah.

But Moving on. Last page, from what BR said (below), I think there's a chance that the entity leading this attack. might not be Vexus at all. If so, then who else could it be?

If I had to make a guess; I'd say someone who has a bone to pick with both the Irkens and the Cluster, and doesn't really care if Vexus is the leader or not. Remember the Cluster did conquer/destroyed a lot of worlds before the coup on Vexus. Same with the Irkens. The only difference is that the Irkens actually got attacked once. By the Resist-ies for those who don't know. So again if it's not Vexus who's not leading the charge it's someone who wants her and the Cluster to take the blame for this, and wants to watch the 2 races destroy each other.
