- Helped save
Well! I guess that takes care of that bit of ambiguity. Unless Catalina's been saving more people than we're aware of.
Last panel translation: "I'm just gonna stop talking now.""Helped" Save
I don't know how many people would actually care under the circumstances, but darn it, I like that Catalina says "helped save" instead of "saved". Rhoda didn't just passively await rescue, darn it. She fled, did a darn good job of climbing a tree, and joined in on the camera flashes. Oh, and the boar could well have killed her before she made it up the tree if not for her unknowingly being the cause of it stopping mid-charge
. but nobody seems to know about that.
Granted, Catalina's contribution to the saving was very significant and Rhoda might've been in big trouble without it considering that the boar was apparently capable of felling trees
. Nonetheless, I am an appreciator of humility and giving credit where due.
Which is, of course, why I blame everyone but myself whenever comics are late.
