I'm kind of disappointed this jack-off is still standing.

Please, take a swing at her. See what happens.
Centcomm 18th Nov 2014, 10:18 PM edit delete reply

its his move - lets see what he does :D
Greenwood Goat 19th Nov 2014, 5:04 AM edit delete reply
Standing is fine...

Dolly: Your elbow? Yes, it's pointing in a different direction to the other one, isn't it? And it's your own fault for using it to swing your fist at me. But if it bothers you that much... - *cratch* - there, now the other one matches. Happy?!

Dragonrider 18th Nov 2014, 9:20 PM edit delete reply

@skweeee don't think he is quite that stupid.
CptKerion 18th Nov 2014, 10:11 PM edit delete reply
How much do you want to bet on that?
DLKmusic 18th Nov 2014, 10:12 PM edit delete reply

Cmon, Cmon, PLEASE be sufficiently stupid!!!! Please please please....
Centcomm 18th Nov 2014, 10:19 PM edit delete reply

At DLK hehe we shall see on Friday :D
Centcomm 18th Nov 2014, 10:18 PM edit delete reply

Dolly right now is in a very bad mood.. bad for him that is.. :D
Stormwind13 19th Nov 2014, 4:02 AM edit delete reply

He seems pretty stupid, Dragonrider. He hasn't already taken off running. And that first panel, where he is talking about Minx getting clumsy, indicates he thinks he is ENTITLED to do what he wants. So yeah, I expect him to push that button and find out that Dolly really meant it.
jamie59 18th Nov 2014, 9:53 PM edit delete reply

Love how Minx's face changes in those last 2 panels.
Centcomm 18th Nov 2014, 10:20 PM edit delete reply

Yes shes beginning to realize something is different .. Dolly isnt backing down from this guy.
Fairportfan 18th Nov 2014, 10:31 PM edit delete reply

It's the hand...
Sheela 19th Nov 2014, 3:52 AM edit delete reply

... he talked to it ?
Stormwind13 19th Nov 2014, 3:59 AM edit delete reply

From terror and an expectation of pain to hope that this isn't going to end with her in the hospital.
plymayer 18th Nov 2014, 10:09 PM edit delete reply

We need someone like this on every street corner.
Centcomm 18th Nov 2014, 10:20 PM edit delete reply

I know right.. next thing Dolly needs is a cape :D
Sheela 19th Nov 2014, 1:59 AM edit delete reply

And then she'll come to your recue while yelling "Mom-powers activate" ?

Rashala 18th Nov 2014, 10:47 PM edit delete reply

Again Is Tedee taking notes here?
Centcomm 19th Nov 2014, 12:01 AM edit delete reply

She thinks Dolly is a softy..
Rashala 19th Nov 2014, 1:06 AM edit delete reply

Yeaaaahhhh No offense but Tedee vs dolly my moneys on Dolly to win in less than 2 minutes
Sheela 19th Nov 2014, 2:03 AM edit delete reply

Well, duh, Dolly has all the experience in the world to draw on.
Also, Dolly is trained mostly in one-on-one combat (bodyguard), while Teedee would be trained more like a regular soldier(group combat).

Heck, even in the human-hybrid body that she is in now, I suspect she'd be dangerous, even to someone like TeeDee.

Rather, the main reason why Teedee would think Dolly is a softie, is because Teedee would simply have shot him in the head to begin with .. there's none of this "second chance" bullshit, from Teedee.

Meanwhile, Dolly is trying to save ... well .. everyone!
DLKmusic 19th Nov 2014, 12:15 PM edit delete reply

I respectfully disagree about TeeDee's Training. Remember the fight scene in the bar between her and Major Ramsey? She is fully trained in Hand-to-hand combat, and now that she's learning the cababilities of her "sprite" model body, she's very dangerous in it.

However, smart money is still on Dolly....
Sheela 19th Nov 2014, 2:34 PM edit delete reply

I'm not saying Teedee isn't dangerous, she certainly is.
She also, obviously, quite competent in a one-on-one battle.

Even so, the majority of her training would likely have been centered around teamwork.
Whereas the majority of a bodyguards/guardian's training would be just yourself against another, or even multiple opponents.

Remember when Dolly and Ceci went up against 4 gutters ?
Dolly got three of them, and Ceci is a top of the bloody line combat model.

Also, lets not forget that Dolly's new body was build with her specifically in mind. and I doubt Calli would have wanted Dolly to give up her guardian work, so it's going to have some strength build into it. I'd bet good money on Dolly's body being a good deal stronger with an experienced mind such as Dolly's, to back it up.

In fact, I suspect that Dolly is dangerous to .. well, just about everything, if she decides she has a really strong grudge that needs to be settled.

tl;dr - Momma bear goes <RAWR> ! :D
Stormwind13 19th Nov 2014, 3:25 PM edit delete reply

Good point, Sheela. TeeDee is a trained agent, very deadly. Dolly is trained to deal with such threats as a guardian. So Dolly is likely to be even MORE deadly, especially after all her years of experience.
mjkj 20th Nov 2014, 7:07 AM edit delete reply

But do not forget: TeeDee is in S&R...
Speedy Marsh 20th Mar 2017, 6:42 AM edit delete reply

Fezzik: I just figured why you give me so much trouble.
Westley: Why is that
[squashed against a rock]
Westley: do you think?
Fezzik: Well, I haven't fought one person for so long. I've been specialised in groups, battling gangs for local charities, that kind of thing.
Westley: Why should that make such a

Westley: difference?
Fezzik: You use different moves when you're fighting half a dozen people, than when you only have to be worried about one

Centcomm 19th Nov 2014, 6:05 PM edit delete reply

Teedee is a Bulldozer. SO is Marcus both rely on brute force rather than finesse... Marcus is a bit better but always will go brute force if he has a option.. Dolly uses the surroundings and prefers to have a mental and tactical advantage and prefers to set her opponents up :D
DLKmusic 19th Nov 2014, 10:14 PM edit delete reply

As I said, smart money is still on Dolly!
Rashala 19th Nov 2014, 11:50 PM edit delete reply

Hence why I bet on Dolly ina Teedee Dolly fight.......
Sheela 20th Nov 2014, 6:09 PM edit delete reply

Eh, in a Teedee vs. Dolly fight, Dolly would have Teedee fight Prince Douchebags railgun tanks, and Teedee would be LOVING IT !

Once she'd be worn out, Dolly would give her cookies and smackdowns! *sage nod*
Dongaria 18th Nov 2014, 10:51 PM edit delete reply

I could feel that palm strike. Awesome!
Centcomm 19th Nov 2014, 12:01 AM edit delete reply

YAY ! I was hoping that would get a resounding smack!
Sheela 19th Nov 2014, 3:55 AM edit delete reply

"Momma Bears Open Palm strike" aka MBOPs. :D

Almost sounds like a kung-fu technique.
Stormwind13 19th Nov 2014, 4:03 AM edit delete reply

He could feel it too, Dongaria! Very well done, CentComm.
Draginbeard 18th Nov 2014, 11:03 PM edit delete reply

Do you want to go to the hospital, or do you want to go home?
Centcomm 19th Nov 2014, 12:02 AM edit delete reply

Hmm choose quick .. or she might choose for you.
mjkj 18th Nov 2014, 11:34 PM edit delete reply

I am going for the really stupid option here :D

@alt text: I agree.

Centcomm 19th Nov 2014, 12:02 AM edit delete reply

hehe :D
Sheela 19th Nov 2014, 2:05 AM edit delete reply

... MOAR !
mjkj 19th Nov 2014, 9:44 AM edit delete reply

Though I wonder what are the regulations of androids hurting humans?

He might count on that restricting Dolly.

Stormwind13 19th Nov 2014, 2:53 PM edit delete reply

Stupid of him if he is. Dolly is NOT restricted when dealing with things. Not then, not now or not EVER! Forces of nature don't let themselves be restricted, mjkj. :-D
mjkj 20th Nov 2014, 7:10 AM edit delete reply

Yeah, but not all androids have that advantage...
velvetsanity 20th Nov 2014, 6:34 PM edit delete reply

As a (presumably licensed) security professional, particularly a bodyguard, Dolly is a special case. Normal rules don't apply, there are special laws in place for such people today, so it stands to reason that there are laws covering such situations in NT. Of course, the idiot she's dealing with isn't aware of her status...
bilateralcomics 19th Nov 2014, 2:51 AM edit delete reply

Nice! I like the last line of dialogue...tough talk!
Stormwind13 19th Nov 2014, 4:06 AM edit delete reply

That last line was great. Also enjoyed Dolly in the third panel, "Back off, or I will put you under the critical-care ward." That is telling jerkwad EXACTLY how much pain he is courting. And I don't think he is listening.
velvetsanity 19th Nov 2014, 8:38 AM edit delete reply

Since when do arrogant, bigoted, bullying thugs like this *ever* listen? They're not smart enough to realize consequences and pain that haven't yet occurred. Partly because they're too busy justifying their own actions, specifically the ones that lead them straight *to* the pain and consequences in this sort of situation.

He's likely too invested in his own self-righteousness to even consider the smart choice (i.e., running away). Though if he does run, there's a good chance he'll turn up again later with 'friends' to 'put that uppity digi-bitch in her place'. If that happens, I hope we get to see it, or at least hear about it, since they'll probably want to do it in view of Minx so that she can 'learn her place better'. Or some similar idiotic bigoted line of reasoning.
Aetrun 19th Nov 2014, 10:42 AM edit delete reply
I really hope that if he does the disappear and reappear with friends option, that he is stupid enough to do it at the Taylor's demanding compensation for his pain and suffering.
Stormwind13 19th Nov 2014, 2:49 PM edit delete reply

He would get some pain and suffering then Aetrun. Dolly backed up by Fallon, with Calliope taking full notice of things back then.

There would be a LOAD of pain dumped on them. Hospital stays for scumbag and 'friends' (thugs).
velvetsanity 19th Nov 2014, 9:27 PM edit delete reply

The thing is, if he comes back with friends, they'll be looking to find Dolly when she's alone so there isn't anyone to run and get help while they're, umm, getting their asses handed to them by what they'd foolishly assumed would be an easy target for payback.
Haegan2005 19th Nov 2014, 7:04 PM edit delete reply

I agree though I arrive at this from another direction. He sees Minx as his property, not a person even though he can interact with her intelligently(even if that seems hard for him)

Because of the law structure there that we have heard comments on, he may believe that Dolly can not do him serious injury. Problem is, he does not know that she is trained to take people down, though the thump he just got should have been a clue.

I think the issue will be resolved on whether or not he reacts from anger or intimidation(personally she would have scared the s*** out of me with that move and in the face dare!)
Centcomm 19th Nov 2014, 4:36 PM edit delete reply

Thank you Dolly knows how to make a impression :D
Speedy Marsh 20th Mar 2017, 8:26 AM edit delete reply
Yeah, Dolly knows how to make a fist shaped impression.

She needs a ring like the Phantom's. But, instead of having a skull on it, it should have the mirror image of DOLLY on it. That way, anyone who provoked her would forever wear her mark on their face. Anyone they met would know that this was someone who had run afoul of The Ghost In The Shell, Who Walks.

The other side of the ring would have the image of a rag doll, for times when she needs to be a bit more discreet. Sadly, she'd probably have to leave the ring at home, when taking part in ghost ops, like the one in Nova Roma.
KarToon12 19th Nov 2014, 8:38 AM edit delete reply

In panel two, all I could think of was Woody from Toy Story:

"Quick! Use your karate chop action!"

Stormwind13 19th Nov 2014, 2:51 PM edit delete reply

HAHAH ok thats one I didn't expect :D
DizzasterJuice 19th Nov 2014, 10:48 AM edit delete reply

1200 pages!!! Woot! Congrats.
That's represents an incredible amount of work and your hard work is appreciated.
Stormwind13 19th Nov 2014, 2:50 PM edit delete reply

Again? Alright CentComm... You need to get all those redo pages so we can finally, definitely congratulate you on 1200 pages. And have it STICK! :-D
DizzasterJuice 19th Nov 2014, 2:56 PM edit delete reply

Oops... did I miss something?
Stormwind13 19th Nov 2014, 3:10 PM edit delete reply

Yeah, I think this is the THIRD time Data Chasers has seen 1200 pages. And then reduces it down by replacing pages with new art, multi-panel pages. :-)
Centcomm 19th Nov 2014, 4:37 PM edit delete reply

Well it all depends on how long it takes to get the 500 or so single panel pages down the to the Standard format im using now :D
Stormwind13 20th Nov 2014, 3:09 PM edit delete reply

You only have 476 single panel pages left and I'm not sure you want to replace the Flesh and Nanotech pages. Dolly looked fabulous in those, as she was trying to come awake.

Of course, you might want to redo some of the others. They might not meet you current 'standards'. Though they look good to me. Though the new art is even BETTER. :-)
CptKerion 19th Nov 2014, 12:19 PM edit delete reply
Ever get the feeling that we all just love to see assholes get curb stomped?
It seems most of us really want that to happen (me included).
Centcomm 19th Nov 2014, 4:38 PM edit delete reply

LOL yeah my numbers on action pages tends to agree with that..
CptKerion 19th Nov 2014, 9:11 PM edit delete reply
The number of assholes you have curb stomped indicates to me that you agree.
XMinusOne 19th Nov 2014, 12:24 PM edit delete reply
Officer Friendly NTPD: "What's happened here?"

Dolly: "Funny thing, officer. He sorta fell down."

OF: "How'd he break both elbows and both knees?"

Dolly: "He fell down extremely hard, I suppose."

OF (looking at Minx): "Yeah, I guess he did."
Centcomm 19th Nov 2014, 4:38 PM edit delete reply

LOL except dolly doesn't lie.. Most of the time ..
Matt Knab 19th Nov 2014, 1:42 PM edit delete reply

Hey, nice action effects!
Centcomm 19th Nov 2014, 4:39 PM edit delete reply

Thanks ! I appreceate that :D :D
VanEzzania 19th Nov 2014, 4:30 PM edit delete reply

Is that CeCi? Is she a different model back then?
Centcomm 19th Nov 2014, 4:39 PM edit delete reply

Nope thats Minx :D you can check her out on the cast page :D
