Hopefully it’s clear here that Bocce is trapped under the wreckage and that’s why he can’t help. It’s certainly not because he’s a coward. He’s just pinned down a bit and fighting to remain conscious, while his arm is shielding him from any real damage from the fire around him.

You don’t get to see them much, but the KV weapon of choice is a firestaff/rifle. It’s a double-barreled weapon that fires blaster shots from one barrel and streams of fire from the other. In some panels, you can see small cylindrical tanks on the rifles that I imagine are some sort of fuel for the fire-emitting part of the guns. Many of the firestaffs also have bayonets on the ends as well. All in all, a pretty intimidating weapon that you don’t want to be on the business end of, unless you’re the kind of guy that likes being shot, stabbed, and set on fire.

    The fuel is space cabbage juice.

    My interpretation of the scene was that the fire was low grade grass burns – no space cabbage flammable juice in sight – and that Bocce’s arm was busy holding the collapsed stone up.

    Btw, next Halloween I’ve got to get me some of that nifty and versatile space cabbage juice to, ehm, fuel my drives!

    Is Bocce broadcasting in his sleep?

    • Exxos says:

      Since they are talking about herds, I am thinking this is a segue back to the present and that is a KV communication.

      • Torbjörn Larsson, OM says:

        Yeah… you can easily note the *distinct* black telling you the washed out memory track is replaced with the present.

        [Just kidding! Actually it’s a nice transition … assuming the continuation proves us right.]
