I say he's in Timeless Space.
Where do you think he went?

The dimensional flux agitator consistently does not land the user in timeless space. The ones in 4U city are modified to land there.

That said, Riff has probably ended up in the same dimension as Monicruel. That's just the sort of coincidence he needs to save her.

I had forgotten about Monicruel! I like the way you think....
Edit: Just found the same spec by kromiller in Reactions (if you didn't get it from her/him, then he/she beat you to it...)

I'm thinking along the lines of still being the same "place" (space), pushing the return remote, ending up back just in place for Torg to grab him and bring him back to the station.

So far the suggestions have been "wherever Monicruel ended up" and Timeless Space. Personally, I would prefer the former, but I'm not entirely sold on either one. I have no other ideas so far, though.

IIRC, Kromiller is decidedly female.

Well, there is the possibility that Monicruel ended up in timeless space.

Today's comic (Halloween) has not changed my spec. If anything, it has strengthened it. Torg is looking out over the earth and the empty space where Riff was. Riff is going to return there and Torg will grab him. I feel more confident about this spec than other specs.

Well, if this was pre-20 Sluggy, it would be a new completely new dimension, and another five years or so of divergent plotlines.

But if Pete is serious about tying this altogether, it needs to be somewhere Riff can get back from, and relatively soon. So I'm gonna go with randomlanguage's theory...

My thought is that Riff will return almost immediately from our perspective, but enough time will have passed for him that he will have additional tech and/or allies with him. The strip with his return will start with a forlorn Torg still floating in orbit and staring, then calling for Sasha to pull him in. Then, as he is turned around and being yanked back, we see a huge ZAPPO!

And there's Riff plus extras. "I made it."

Then we get a few months of story explaining what happened to him there. ;)
