What does Riff mean with "that fast"?


He's following up on his comment from a few days ago:

The monster's eye in the last panel looks different (madder) than in the "CRASH" panel. If I was Torg I'd make sure the thing was *dead* before I worried about assigning points.


I was thinking the same. Also, the mouth is to the left, so the head is turned to the right. That's the opposite to how it fell two panels earlier. It could be just one of those details that readers put too much significance in, bt....



My interpretation was that there is a second, different monster. Like the one that was eating cartbeasts was a baby, being taught how to hunt by a (much larger) mother?

That was my interpretation as well. The last-panel one looks much larger, and it would explain Riff's "THAT fast" comment.

Yes, but that is still all speculation... Just sayin'... As for "larger", the perspective in Panel 4 shows just how much larger than the hedgedale the "monster" that was shot is. So it's not clear to me that the last eye behind Torg is necessarily "much larger"...
