    Even though Andi got off relatively lightly, as a reader I'm like "NO DON'T POKE HER, IT'S NOT SAFE, LET IT GO".

    I think letting Andi maintain the attitude that she didn't do anything really wrong is, observably, quite a bit more dangerous than calling her out on it before she gets to the "tying someone else up" level.

    You know, Bandana, Elan has a spell that can mend headaches, too...

    The last panel is a reference to comic 1064, in case anyone was momentarily confused like me.

    Andi appears to be ... daunted. Which seems smart.
    Felix scores the ultimate pirate comeback in a battle of wits.
    Bandana seems to realize the stakes have been raised for the Mechane - and, also, to be planning on being in command for a long time to come.

    It's nice to see Bandana being tough, but not unreasonably so. She didn't let Andi get away with it, but she also didn't pull out an overly harsh punishment. She was fair.

    And Andi's not saying a word. Or looking angry. She's glad to be alive, I think.

    Bandana learned a rough lesson, but I hope she doesn't turn her back on Andi again.
    Rough going for OotS and the mission to save the world. Time is slipping away.

    Thanks Giant!

    So, they got out of the mountains by going back to the really dangerous pass that Andi turned them off in the first place, presumably? Who would have thought it?

    Ah, well, at least Andi didn't completely get away with it, would be particularly satisfactory if the rest of the crew got a huge reward for helping to save the world. (But they probably won't.)

    Bwahahaha! Oh, oh Felix. That was great. Bandana's threat was delightful, but man do I love that punchline.

    Yes I'm pretty sure she expected to be tossed overboard when Bandana turned towards her there...

    I'm not certain she's quite figured out what happened. It's moving a little fast for her decision making process.

    Well, never thought this would be the strip to finally get me to delurk, but there it is. I don't think I'd have been as lenient as Bandana, but I do love her character's sense of judgement and intelligence. Of the NPCs, she's rapidly gaining on O'Chul as my favourite...

    Welcome!

    Of course, how could you have known which strip would get you to delurk before it was actually published? BEGONE, FOOLISH N00B!

    Hard to tell if further punishment is being withheld, they don't have time, or if Bandana thinks it's not worth her time/effort (which is almost the worst option).
