Dr. Carter is a… MUTANT!

Check out the wings he sprouted in the first panel!  What th…?!


I can see it now.  Total ripoff from Raiders of the Lost Ark…  Right down to the melting faces


By themselves??

I’m not even sure what that means…


Individually?  Each one worth several hundred thousand dollars?  To whom?  King Tut?  And why are we continued to be fixated on the MONEY?!  What about the historical and or cultural significance of all this?  Or are we just all mercenaries?  I know that it’s a balancing act to keep the grant money flowing, but seriously.  And Rusty is caught up in the middle of all this, heavily influenced by the adults in the room, not the mention the writer that is putting words in his mouth…

I love the first panel… Mark is cradling probably half a million dollars in his hands…  and since he isn’t on Woods and Wildlife business, (where is Editor Bill Ellis, anyway?) he probably couldn’t get the magazine to cover for his clumsiness this time…
