Fantastic Comics #3 - pt. 4
It looks like I'm easily going to finish discussing Fantastic Comics #3 before the year ends, as I have only the Sub Saunders installment left to discuss.
Speaking of clearly seeing, Poseida can be forgiven for getting a little excited when he sees Peg, as that is one skin-tight diving suit! Interestingly, only Saunders is wearing a skirt for modesty.
Poseida is wearing a chainmail gorget around his neck. It would offer no Armor Class improvement, but must be a fashion statement.
Now, working under the assumption that Peg is a SCM and Sub is being played solo...how does the Editor decide Peg's reaction? A reaction roll vs. Poseida, with a substantial penalty for him offering Sub half the fortune instead of her? A loyalty check for Sub? A 50-50 coin flip? (All of which would be legitimate choices for the Editor)
"Release the spider!" has got to be an unnerving thing to hear when you're about to fight something in an arena...
I can't imagine what all that glassware has to do with the radio equipment. Likely this is just visual shorthand for looking hi-tech.
