It’s always fun to be on the Grindbin Podcast, and this week’s episode has me on with Grindbin regulars Mike and Bobby and fellow guest (and fellow comics writer) Michael J. Tanner to discuss the great big blacksploitation picture Truck Turner, with great big Isaac Hayes, a very menacing Yaphet Kotto, and Nichelle Nichols in a role that will really surprise all you Star Trek fans. Faustus says give it a listen! You can play or download the episode here or just search for Grindbin on your podcast app of choice.
Panel 1: View of Claudia again, realization sinking in.
Claudia (1): No.
Translation (1): Nein.
Panel 2: Claudia in the act of standing up, her face enraged.
Claudia (2): No fucking way, do you understand?
Comment (2): “Fucking” in Claudia’s dialog line here shouldn’t be translated literally. In colloquial English, used in the way Claudia is using it here, it serves purely as an intensifier (generally used by someone who is angry) to stress the point.
Translation (2): Auf gar keinen Fall, kapiert?
Panel 3: Claudia in the midst of storming past Turpentine out of the room. Turpentine has reached out to grab her sleeve, and Claudia has a hand raised to swat it away.
Turpentine (3): Claudia, please.
Translation (3): Claudia, bitte.
Claudia (4): Let go of me!
Translation (4): Lassen Sie mich los!
Panel 4: View of Hiram, sitting back in his chair and rolling his eyes.
PAGE 62 (Three panels. The first two should appear across the top of the page, the third a long panel across the bottom)
Panel 1: View of Daphne’s in the water, her midsection dominated by an explosive effect – BOOM! – as her capsule explodes.
SUBTITLE (1): Recovered drone footage.
Translation (1): Geborgenes Drohnenmaterial.
Panel 2: A large white sphere pops up on the surface of the ocean.
SFX – SPHERE SURFACING (2): Bloop!
Translation (2): Blöp!
SUBTITLE (3): Aerial drone surveillance footage.
Translation (3): Luftdrohnenmaterial.
Panel 3: A line of spectators along the rail of the RV Seagoon: Hiram, Turpentine, Claudia, and Captain Drummingdale. Hiram is stroking his chin with a “well, that’s interesting” look. Turpentine is facepalming. Claudia is registering shock. Drummingdale is leaning over the rail and retching.
