I love that expression in the last frame: Goblaurence just looks so crushed that he’s not going to get to use the immense collection of munitions he packed and prepared, clearly with a lot of TLC. Jason and John are both excellent at giving villains various shades of comedy when the situation calls for it…see the current installment of Traveler for a good example.

And while I’m referencing other stories, Goblaurence’s “chunce” comment refers to Payet Best’s print-only solo adventure, which Goblaurence may’ve been around to witness. Best’s look has changed a lot since those days, but the ax-guitar remains distinctive enough for an uncertain identification.

FB: Goblaurence’s favorite Pixar character is Bomb Voyage.
