#160: This

This right here is why I don't drink Cola...

Guess I wasn't too off with my "take over the bodies" idea. Making them Zombie-like is probably the next best thing.

Now, who wants to bet that Erin uses Rads body as weapon again in some way to solve that issue?

Love that Not-Sephiroth has a guy that follows him around just to constantly brush his flowing hair.

Oh my god, it's the crystal zombie apocalypse!

So who won the "guess the crytal's evil intentions" lottery from the last comic? I know I saw someone say "It's gotta be for mind control." :3

So why did the Shards bother creating a rebellion? That just means spending lots of money of guards, slowing business growth, making distribution harder and risking a bad reputation.

Killing off the people that would want to stop them through a rebellion they give awful advice to and whose healer, for example, is a fire mage?

The sad thing is that my sister is a pediatrician and saw more than one kid whose parents said their kid "doesn't like water" so only drinks powdered juice or sodas everyday of they lives..

Hm, I seem to recall Erin previously drinking a lot of that stuff. That can't be good.
So next issue is going to see Rad versus Crystal Monster Gunny, Zombified Erin, and not-Sephiroth?. I'm sure he'll be fine.

Erin already had two cans of the stuff...

I like the anachronism stew of the second panel: An Aladdin-style oil lamp, on top of a refrigerator.

...Well crap. This does not look good. And what were the crystal's plans again?

.....thank you, sir, for dropping my faith in humanity down another peg or two. xP

Holy Moley! You're right! Death Carr predicted this! How could he have possibly known?

I think the FDA really need to step up their game here.

Konami tried to warn us, but we didn't listen!

Now we know why Shard corporation created New Shard to win the cola war--to start a literal Cola War with shard zombies. Bring back Classic Shard, I say!

So, this will leave Althea, Rad and maybe the CEO as the only protagonists left to stop the Cola War. Unless... Erin is immune to the effects somehow thanks to her being dead for a bit. So then, they just have to poison everyone and then heal them. Easy peasy mac and cheesy. Maybe its not as simple as this. But, I am smelling Erin's death as a climactic plot device of some kind.

Or she just has plot-immunity.

That sounds almost as stupid as not getting their kids vaccinated because of autism.

Say, what happened to those other captured members of Landslide, the ineffectual rebels/terrorists?

Wow, you really see the whole spectrum of emotional responses to this in those people!
I guess the happy ones are those that were depressed or otherwise unsatisfied with their daily lives?

Sniper Team 4:

I find it funny that, that guy probably hasn't had any Shard Cola.
....
Also this comic makes me want to play Sunset Overdrive.

Did Cory draw himself in the last panel?

Odd; this is usually how I am until I get my morning soda.

They did? I must have missed that.

Caramel Frappe:
Does this mean Erin's going to become one of them? Oh boy, can't wait for poor Rad to face his closest friend.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who remembered that Erin drank one of those drinks way back at the beginning of this arc.

I see the hair guy's hair guy isn't a Shard Cola fan.
... Aand I'm sort of assuming a single can mightn't be enough to turn Erin. I mean most have probably drunk as much as we've drunk real cola.

I just realised something: Althea's people in the third panel are smiling, while the other victims aren't. They do worship the crystals, after all.

Caramel Frappe:

But did she drink enough to be controlled? Or maybe that poison she had to take (or the fact that she died and came back to life) somehow nullified the crystal inside her? Find out next time, on EDA!

CrazyGirl17:

They're still unclear. Give it 5 or so panels, and then we'll have an idea of its plans - probably with a plot hole to boot.
