Haha, take that Schlock! Riff has called your bluff! (And raised you a double-bluff!)

But what 'really' matters is who's button is bigger.

*sigh*

It's not the size of the button that matters. It's the explosion at the end.

What I find interesting is Schlock said "a" Kusari cloning facility. A, not "the".

Granted, if there are others, they're clearly not operational since he didn't feel the need to flux them.

Ah the ol' self-destruct button bluffing game. I remember being a kid and playing that on the school playground. And then later, on the crater where the school playground used to be. Good times.

Zoe got in Schlock's head. I bet that was Torg's plan all along.
And yes, Riff, you know he won't push that button...if it is a self-destruct. If it's something else, he might just push it.

That is an important distinction.

I'm confused by the panel in the bottom left. Is that first line supposed to be Riff's, not Schlock's?

Yeah, I'm confused about that too, but that doesn't make sense either. Riff should know that his Brian Rammer died years ago. Torg would have told him. Why would Riff think Brian was in the cloning facility?

And while you're correcting that, Pete, Panel 6 has Schlock saying "I always do to". Should be "too".

The bubbles in panel 8 seem off to me. Almost like shlock has amnesia or something. It almost makes more sense reversed, with riff asking if he meant his son was working... Idk. It just reads oddly.

Is Riff bluffing? Considering this and this, and also this, it seems to be true that Riff's button will kill Schlock and won't directly kill Riff. On the other hand, considering what it will do to the rocket's control and communication systems, it seems likely that Riff will die soon if that button is pushed.
