The Destructoid Comic: The long way round

 The story so far:

There is a giant robot on the loose, destroying the very city Jim swore to protect. Unable to fend it off alone, he calls on the help of CyberneticTigerZ! The last remaining warrior of the long forgotten Sharktroopers, equipped with state of the art cyber battle armour and his trusty B.A.N. Hammer, he agrees to lend a hand.

CTZ decides that even with his mighty awesome powersuit, this fight may prove too much, even for him. CTZ calls in a favour from RetroForceGO!, legendary warriors whose skills are supposedly unmatched. Will they be enough to destroy the rampaging robot?

This time it was kce05d that pushed the story forward, with the comment:

You mentioned that Topher would be piloting something (Ikaruga?) and while it would just make sense to fly everyone over to the giant robot, you should have them do the what most games and movies do and have them take the long way for some ridiculously arbitrary reason. Adds more pages to your story, pokes fun at that particular cliche, and I can just imagine hilarious commentary from Jim (the comic version, that is.)
Also, a bonus plot point from Topher:
Dyson's Dreamcast should be an engine component for the Ikaruga. Like I couldn't fly it because it was missing a part, and then Dyson pops the Dreamcast in there and it powers on. Then I fly away and do something awesome.
I decided to do a bit of mixing and matching this time for a double pager. I might do more double pages in the future as well, if a comment comes my way that's too awesome to squeeze onto one, I'll spread it out.

Check out both pages after the jump!
