JPS: Is it any less confusing IN context, my sweaty-flanked okapi?
CS: Not a bit. An Australian comics web site gives plot summaries of all the issues of Platinum Grit, and the overall plot looks unfathomable. I don't know how Jeremy and Nilson ended up in space and I don't know what the aliens are after them for—knowledge, presumably. The "restaurant" is aboard the alien spaceship.
JPS: Is the restaurant mentioned on that page?
CS: Jeremy is sitting across from Nils in the restaurant at the aliens have constructed for the experiment. The alien leader is making Jeremy say things that Jeremy would never say under his own control. In a panel on page 22 a sign reads:
Tolken Backburner's Bar 'n' Grill
This may be an obscure Aussie allusion or just a pointless whimsy. It's not a case for scientific analysis....
