Back to the subplot with the catboy:

Schrödinger: Doc, we’re about to test your final plan. Wait until Alucard starts drawing in blood, then add mine to the mix. As part of his collective of souls, I won’t recognize myself, so I’ll cease to exist.

Which leaves him trying to divide by zero. Here goes nothing–!

Penwood: That can’t possibly work, can it?

Bertie: Do I look like the sort of chap who understands great scientific principles?

No, no, you’re not supposed to tell the readers what it means! You’re supposed to let them reach their own conclusions so the comic works as an art piece that makes them reflect on their choice. So if a person goes, “Doc is still alive!” they can then look back at themselves to figure out why they would choose to see Doc as alive rather than dead. Same if they want him dead. (Insert long exposition of the use of ambiguity as a mark of “modern” comic writing here.)

Also, Doc’s death being ambiguous sets up a relevant science joke: it means he’s both alive and dead at the same time. The in-world creator of Schroedinger’s Cat becomes the cat himself to the reader. I thought you’d appreciate the meta-humor. 😀

reminds me about WMG about Spike being dead or not. There was a comment about making sure Alucard doesn’t eat him. Good think Doc is in Japan.

Ahhh… But without Doc, there isn’t really any place to shoe horn the Shi into the comic. D:

Oh well. As long as that Werewolf gets a Jewish silver tooth through his vile black heart, AND Integra does her extended speach at the end, I’ll be happy.

Even as a Captain fangirl, I love the poetic nature of his death. C’mon, his heart isn’t as black as the Major’s…
