Meanwhile, Amelia has been busy! With all the commotion going on downstairs with the riot, maybe now is a good time to escape. She rips a shelf right off the wall and uses it to start breaking the door handle! She’s interrupted by some Clonoids at the door, but the ever-adaptable Amelia hatches a new plan – one that hinges on the antenna in the Clonoid’s head!
Zik is flung into the factory wall, denting it in the process! What a kick! Good thing he has body armor, although according to Zoot it has taken some damage! Zik gets ready as the Clonoid charges — the fight is on! He blocks a mighty punch and returns with one of his own, but the Clonoid grabs his arm and flings him like a rag doll into a pile of boxes! Zik is unconscious! Oh no!
I’m back!! I never really went away… I’m still recovering from some health issues, so this page took me forever to draw. But it’s here! Expect updates more regularly now! I hope..
Also: you might notice that there are new features on the site! There are now two membership levels, with all kinds of goodies and extras for you if you sign up! Also, I added a store! There is a wallpaper in there at the moment, and there will be more stuff in there soon! So welcome back to Zik! I hope to see some new members signing up soon so we can unlock some of my stretch goals!
Trying to monopolize this big guy’s attention, Zik starts up some mildly insulting banter. He has a point, though: despite all the muscles, there’s literally nothing to interest the ladies back on Zoz! I guess that’s not why Queen Elcyra has them around. The Clonoid is only too happy to engage Zik directly, and even finishes his sentence for him!
Zik and Trent try the first, obvious solution: fill the massive Clonoid with bullets! This guy has incredibly thick skin, it seems, so he’s able to simply brush the bullets off and drop them to the floor. Zik decides that guns are of no further use, so he hands his to Trent and tells him to go find Amelia. Zik wants to take this guy on alone?!
Things are going well in this riot! The drones are easily dispatched, and there are far fewer soldier Clonoids. Trent points the way to where Amelia is being held captive.
Meanwhile, a trio of prisoners decides to try their luck with a doorway to a restricted area. It’s locked, but something busts its way through! What is happening?!
Greg hasn’t stopped acting completely irrationally, and immediately starts a riot in the factory! Trent explains to Zik that these guys have always been trouble and have now started something that they probably can’t handle. By the time he and Trent make it inside, there’s a full scale battle going on!
A legend is born! It turns out Trent is pretty handy with a pistol! Like a gunslinger right out of the old American West! The Clonoid soldier barely has time to glance over before Trent has shot him straight through the heart. Zik is astounded and gives him the nickname “Quickdraw” on the spot! Greg irrationally blames Zik for the devastating failure of the attack and runs into the factory!
