In pretty much any other comic/context, this line would sound peaceful.

Speaking of paint, another way to paint a target, and/or the surrounding room is to let Doc and Roger use whatever they want against said target.

At the risk of sounding like an idiot, who's "Doc and Roger"?

Characters from another webcomic, called The Whiteboard. Doc is a polar bear with a serious caffeine addiction and the ability to work miracles with paintball repair. Roger is a raccoon who sometimes assists Doc in his tinkerings. Most recently, they put together a paintball Gatling gun that ended up covering the entire field and themselves in paint. :D

Yep.

Say, I wonder how Petey's doing.

The suspense almost makes me want a meanwhile… at the core.

Doc, creator of The Whiteboard (not to be confused with his character, albeit his character is an author avatar in some but definitely not all ways), once machined a model of Schlock's plasgun for Howard as a gift and there's been a few crossover references to it. I'm not sure Landon counts, but he's definitely at least a bit of a Doc expy. Doc the character is a genius inventor and many of his inventions end up being weaponized (some intentionally, some not) and most of them end up being highly explosive. DARPA sometimes takes an interest.

I used to read The Whiteboard regularly but it fell off my list for some reason. Maybe I should resume.

Eh. Petey at the moment seems to be fulltime dealing with Andromeda. It's a handy way of keeping him on the shelf and not going deus ex machina on every plotline.

I'm not sure that we're going to get a heck of a lot more exposition about the past beyond Murtaugh's near-death experience. I suspect the chapter is going to start looking forward pretty soon.

Well, there's Vog, too.

I have been reading through The Whiteboard since Howard mentioned it. This scene is a back-reference to Schlock.
