Betrayal!

Tommy's only option was to head for water, a tactic that leaves them wide open.

Happy holidays everyone and I'll see ya in the new year for the conclusion to part 1.

Maybe I should better stay silent... but it annoys me: How long would a halfway trained shooter need to re-point that machine gun in their direction? Maybe half a second? Plus maybe 2 tenths of a second to pull the trigger? And how long would it take anyone from standing on a boat bridge to being under water? They can't jump down towards the water, they must jump up a bit to get away from the boat bridge and then fall down, so, say, about 2 seconds?

Jacon could have killed them both while they were in the air.

Edit: I found the answer for this on page 50.

Hey RockB. Thanks for commenting.

You're not wrong in a sense and I'd be first to analyse a comic as such too. My goal here was to tell a fast paced action piece that kinda bends the rules. In this case, Jacon is doing that classic villian trope of talking instead of killing.

Hey Cooke, thanks for explaining :) Later on it became clearer that this a comic like an action movie. Nothing wrong with that but it took away a bit of the fun for me. Then again, this is a flashback told by Cooke (the character) for they guys on the roof, so Cooke may exaggerate a bit...

(It annoyed me because it reminded me of another fight I once saw in a comic - the good guy lost his gun, the bad guy is pointing a rifle at the good guy, point-blank distance. A box at the bottom of this panel: "It took him two tenths of a second to bend his finger." Next panel, a box at the top: "That was exactly one tenth of a second more than I needed to ,,," Hands flying up and pushing the rifle's barrel out of direction, a shot is fired and misses! I was impressed.)
