    Wow, I didn't think she would go that far as to actually attack her with a wrench! Not looking good for the home team.
    So I said to myself "SELF, if I were you, and I think I am, I would be beside myself in embarrassment, so slap myself silly."

    Oh boy there we go. We all knew it was coming, but still...

    Hope this doesn't end terribly bad, but again, we know it probably will...

    It seemed to me in the 9th panel that she was just as shocked as everyone about that she did that.

    I really like how Bandana's eyes are obscured by the fence there. A little bit of suspense for us, since she could be dead or unconscious...

    You've probably just doomed everyone on the Mechane. Well done.

    Her chin hitting the rail might have caused real damage. She could be dead...

    I doubt she's dead. Concussion, almost certainly, but not dead.

    The question will be, what if Bandana was right? They get hemmed in and trapped like rats. Could be the end of the Mechane, would be a solid lead-in for a "Lord of the Flies" scenario.

    There are three halflings at the Godsmoot. Guess how the Gods will destroy the world if Dvalin votes yes.

    Andi's alternate "plan" was to, instead of going through the pass, to pick a random valley and go down it in the hopes there would be no giants there. Of course, if said valley ends up in a dead end, the Mechane will be trapped.

    Ha, sneaky detail there with the handrail obscuring the eyes, but I doubt she's actually dead - not only because it'd be difficult to pull off mechanically (heh), but also because it'd be kinda cheap to tease us like that if she was actually dead. I'm surprised the steerer called Andi "Captain" so readily, though, and that's not a good sign for Bandana's health.

    Nice of today:
    1. it is enough defeat the capitan to replace her in 1 panel :)
    2. What can be Andy's punishment? I guess the political judgment depends on the outcome
    3. so, if you are heading sluggish against a mountain, isn't the next strip having a 80% big CRASSHH ?
    4. Schroding-Bandana, dead or alive?

    At least Bandana was able to give Andi a piece of her mind before Andi whacked her with a wrench from behind...

    Man oh man, I had a modicum of sympathy for Andi up until the point where she started to insult Bandana and commit mutiny via backstabbing (or backwhacking...).

    I kind of feel the first 2 panels are there just to clarify the status of the Ogre from the last strip's comments. :D

    And just like that, Andi deserves to be on the business end of some damage, preferably lethal -- whether it's Roy's greatsword or Julio's sabre, I really don't care anymore. This is a pirate ship? Then deal with it like pirates.

    Fortunately for Bandana, the wrench is most likely an improvised weapon dealing nonlethal damage, but like posters upthread said, the added damage of hitting the rail plus the helmsman (Mateo?) changing who he's addressing as "Captain" isn't a good sign. I guess we all just have to wait a couple more weeks to find out.

    At this point, quite frankly, if the crew are that enthusiastic for attempting murder and blundering into a dead end, they deserve to lose the ship and their lives.

    Can't wait to see Roy's reaction when the ship starts turning.

    Also - crap, we've split the party again haven't we?

    They're not that kind of pirates. They're fun adventure flick pirates. Executing Andi would be all sorts of disproportionate.

    Andi is angry just before she hits Bandana. While it doesn't excuse it, I think this was less specifically planned than built up tension and frustration that boiled over. I'd still like to know what the underlying conflict is between those two. Former girlfriends?

    Great job Andi... now you`ll waste all the effort you and your crew have done (and the heroic sacrifice of some of your crewmates) and pass again for that ice giant infested route. If you want to rebel you should did it before or after, but you are maximizing the damage with that course of action. Aggh, pride and ambition always ruins the party.

    Also... you remember the end-of-the-world thing?... you“ll die if the heroes don“t arrive in time, wherever you go. Well i guess the order will save you even with this treason.
