There are so many ways this can go. If only he had just run for it and figured momentum would carry him through! (then I would have pushed on the first pool)
Which is why it's so weird that Rob in his newspost about no more text updates for the rest of this book is strange. There is a whole heck of a lot that can happen in the next few moments, and we're less than a dozen strips from the end?
Something big is about to happen. That tower might be coming down in the very next strip. It's really the only resolution I see that can happen that fast, a revist to the end of the first book. Rocks fall, everybody dies. Slately out with the jetpack, Wanda and Jack through the portal, the rest of the GK and Jetstone forces gone.
It's also the only reasonable way to get Parson to stay to listen to the great minds, if there's no more battle to fight.
