Title: Last Numbers (3/6)
SFX: KON KON
Disney: Is the door shut tight......?
Tight enough that not a single microorganism will be able to get through......?
Disney: Okay...... Who are you again......?
Charles: Ah...... That's right......
The star from Stanford U. The one from that crazy project......
My head isn't gone yet............
But...... once in a while I confuse the order things happen in......
Don't worry, though.
I found a good doctor in Mexico.
More: That's good to hear.
Disney: The reason I called you here............
is that I have one job I'd like you to undertake......
All of the Billy Bat artists besides the real one......
That book over there......
is a book by a Singaporean comic artist.
Eliminate them all, starting with that one.
More: "If you draw a fake Billy Bat, then you'll be killed by Chuck Culkin Enterprises."
So that urban legend is true, is it?
Chuck: Up until '64......
Until then, I relied entirely on one man for that matter......
But in 64, I suddenly lost contact with that man......
He probably died.
Ever since then, the job's been unfilled.
More: And now, you're giving it to us?
Disney: That's because your project was followed by the bat ever since the war ended......
I don't think I need to explain at this point......
but if that project enters the 90's
then the budget will be reduced and closing doors won't be far off......
More: You've donated so much to it.......
I cannot turn down a request from you, no matter how absurd.
DIsney: And that's money the IRS has no knowledge of.
Guy: ......So then, to what extent should we eliminate?
More: Well, I mean to say that Kevin Goodman, the one currently drawing Billy Bat is a fake as well, yes?
Disney: Everyone besides me is a fake.
More: Isn't he your successor?
Disney: That is my will
as well as the will of the Fuhrer.
Disney: It's okay. Don't worry.
I'll be better soon......
I found a good doctor in Mexico............
Smith: Those guys are pros......
And you beat them in the blink of an eye, all on your own.....
Smith: Who are you:
Dev: I am the person who will protect you.
Smith: Why? Why would you put yourself in such danger to protect me......?
Ah...... What's your name......?
Dev: I am Devivie.
Please call me Henry.
Smith: Henry, the ones you just beat were a pretty troublesome lot.
I don't know who hired you or how much they're paying, but this won't do you any good.
Devivie: You see, I am a person that has once died.
Smith: Once...... died......?
Devivie: Yes...... And I was given life once again by the bat.
And through a new employer, I now understand for the first time.
My previous employer was terrible.
my whole life was terrible.
Smith: And who is your new employer?
Devivie: The one that protects the righteous bat.
Smith: The righteous bat?
He is now setting about on a new comic.
Smith: A comic......!! A new one......?!!
Devivie: The title is still pending, but....
It's called "The Billy Bat Version of World History".
It seems it is a story that will be a compilation on that grand a scale.
Smith: And where is that cartoonist now......?
Devivie: A safe place.
He is writing non-stop with intense focus.
At the latest, it has to be fully drawn by the end of the current century......
Smith: And what is that cartoonist's name?
Devivie: I believe it's a name you'll recognize.
Devivie: So, what do you think?
Smith: I'll really be able to read it......
I'll be able to read the continuation of Kevin Yamagata's magnum opus......
Scientist: Jeffery is sleeping like a rock.
When I received word from him, I couldn't believe it myself.
Finny: But it's finally solved.
Scientist: Yes. The last riddle of this scroll......
This code-like number......
Using distributed computing, we applied the Japanese alphabet to an exhaustive search..........
I've also inspected Jeffrey's calculations. And no matter how many times I check them.....
I invariably end up at those numbers.
Scientist: Mister Finny.
As a scientist, I do not approve of uncertain remarks.
Nor do I like to say anything that sounds superstitious, but...
over my long experience as a scientist, I have developed something I would call intuition.
Mister Finny, these numbers are certainly not a code that indicated the location of some treasure.
I have an inkling that these numbers are not something that should only be known to use few in this cramped basement.
This is something that should be known to all of humanity......
Finny: What are you trying to say, Doctor Copland?
Copland: I can't find a good way to express it, but I'm concerned about the last numbers of those two rows.
The identical numbers they both end in......
FInny: I see. That is a remark that's rather uncharacteristic for a scientist.
Though I'm not actually sure if...... you are a scientist.
Finny: That Star-whatever project at Stanford University you were part of......
you investigated supernatural phenomena and extrasensory perception, did you not?
And ever since the war ended, you've been doing research regarding the bat, haven't you?
Copland: What are you talking about?
Finny: Just that there's a possibility your are not a scientist......
but rather, a spy.
Cop: Really, I have no idea what you're going on about.........
Finny: Then why don't you take out that gun you're planning to shoot me with?
SFX: KATA KATA KATA KATA KATA KATA KATA
Finny: Jeffrey, which side are you on?
Jeff: Y...... Y......
your side, of course, Mister Finny.
Finny: Then hurry up and solve this.
Finny: What do these two sequences mean?
And why do the end in the same numbers?!!
Side: The secret last numbers of the scroll of time. Do those numbers indicate chaos for mankind?! The year is 1990.
Bottom: "Billy Bat" 120 / End
Running next issue, too!! Look forward to it!!
