Feels right to continue on recapping Pandemica given the times… So weird that it came out and I was so into this comic that I recapped the second issue too, and now the world has ended! But #3 and #4 are out so I’m going to recap both and hopefully #5 comes out soon!
So, we begin with D and the ginger boning.
The ginger (Chick) brings up that the last time they slept together they ended the day by trying to shoot each other. I wonder what today will bring? As they get dressed to start their day, the TV says this pandemic is the worst they’ve seen since the Spanish Flu!
The TV continues to talk and basically recap what we already know, that there are multiple strains of this sickness which is making it impossible to cure. The TV also lets us know that our friend Moses has assembled a team of racially and gender diverse scientists to find the people responsible for the so called “purity bombs.”
Cause guess who is behind this? Rich, white people. The worst kind of people, IMHO.
Next up, we have Loverboy who is watching Fox News. He also just got some last night from a sad prostitute whose nose he broke. Loverboy, indeed.
Loverboy, dressed as a UPS driver, meets up with a bunch of other UPS drivers. It seems that he has gone straight and the comic can now end.
So Moses’ team is checking out the bodies of mutated infected. These people I believe are white people who got hit with a purity bomb called “Bloodhound.”
CUT TO: The white people behind these bombs. They’re discussing the risks behind setting more of these bombs off. The lady says that they’ve only tested areas with barely any white people in it, the guy is like who cares let’s set it off, hoe. And she’s like but our people could get infected and he’s all, bitch what? No way, they’re not pure whities then.
Now we get some boring scene between the daughter of the billionaire guy who hates anyone who isn’t white and she is talking to a senator or member of congress or something who is her dad’s bitch and he’s scared because this has gone way too far but he can’t say anything because billionaire zaddy is the one who keeps his pockets fat.
POTUS, who is also owned by said billionaire, makes a public announcement that everything is fine. SOUNDS V FAMILIAR!!
De and Gingerbread man discuss what POTUS says and Ginger decides for once in his life he’s for sure on the good side. Yeah, I agree, any side that wants to stop the mass murdering of people is def the good side.
Moses on the phone with the scared senator from earlier. They are discussing going against POTUS to stop this craziness. Moses says he has his people working on a presentation that will prove that these are bio-weapons and not just a virus. He is just waiting on the lab reports being delivered from six different labs. And as luck would have it the delivery people have arrived as he is on the phone.
Meanwhile De and her freckle-faced lover are blowing up a different lab one that is working on said purity bombs. Yay!
They shoot everybody up and they all die except one guy who they question. He doesn’t have much information but he tells them that the cure to all these diseases lies in one of the babies downstairs. And they’re like “hmm babies?”
Back to Loverboy at Moses’ lab. Loverboy the stand up king of comedy makes a great speech about how Moses is not Jesus then shoots one of Moses’ doctors and demands to know where De’neesa and Chick are. Moses won’t give it up so Loverboy decides to come back tomorrow and if De and Chick aren’t there he’s going to kill everybody. Neat.
Meanwhile, Chick and De have taken the man to where they keep the babies. He let’s them know that Moses is right about everything he thinks is happening. The goal of the “ark” as they call it, is to preserve pure whiteness and get rid of everybody else. WE KNOW.
So after that delightful speech, they ping a button and open up to a lab full of babies in tubes. Cute!!
CUT TO: De’nessa holding a stolen baby in a hazmat suit. Chick is mad at her for lying to her and thinks she’s crazy. This panel is from the future, so shit hasn’t hit the fan quite yet, but it’s about to. Chick holds a gun to the baby and then to De’s face.
DE: I don’t think you’re going to shoot me so I’m just going to walk away, k bye.
Chick: *shoots gun*
*hits mutated person instead of De*
De runs away.
WONDER WHAT HAPPENS NEXT!!
