Planet Ripple- 107- In the belly of the whale

This is Pottwal, a ship under Hack's command. I thought the large head of a sperm whale would make a good hangar for minisubs and the like. In panel 2, you can see the same type of sub Hack used to raid the Balena is small enough to fit through Pottwal's mouth with its hinged opening bottom jaw, but the ship is still pretty small compared to the likes of civilian ships like the Balena. It's large enough to hold prisoners, though. And now we see where Kelsey's ended up.

That's it for today.

The name alone for this reminded me of Jonah - A VeggieTales Movie.

I don't know what that "Huh." is suppose to represent.

I love these animal-shaped submarines! It's interesting that the pirates' vehicles are more animalistic than civilian ships like the Balena. Is that for camouflage or something?

Psycho-warfare. What better way to intimidate people than to make them feel like they're being attacked by an ACTUAL sea monster?
Gusindor's avatar
Aha! That makes a lot of sense.

Did they hire Dr. Wily, Sigma or Team Rocket for their designs?
FatherOfMusho's avatar
The latter would have had their heads cut off by Sigma halfway through development due to annoying him too much.

Well, that's a whale of a tail...:D…

Cool sub design, I like head and teeth design especially :3

Ah, I remember that movie. You know, I was thinking of that when I uploaded this.

Yeah, I figured it'd make the most sense for the teeth to be two solid masses that are essentially bulkheads in the vague shape of jaws rather than... actual separated teeth that all have to slide together and hope to God one of them doesn't snap off and make a huge leak.

Darn it, the title is reminding me of the Newsboys song....
Still a whale-shaped ship is a nice concept.

I'm assuming this is where they keep the merfolk too, right?

That ship reminds me of the Whale King from ZOIDS.
