OAKEWOOD: I just don’t think it has any bearing whatsoever. You’ve got a hammer, and all you see are nails. There is a whole wide world outside our islands. There’s simply no need to believe she’s from Abroad.

TAGG: And I’m sayin’ there is! But you don’t wanna hear me? Fine by me. We’re leaving.

OAKEWOOD: Thanks for the dangerous fear-mongering!
TAGG: Oh Sod off, you nob!
OAKEWOOD: Don’t mind if I do! And get that metal out of your face you disrespecting nitwit!
TAGG: I’ll do what I want!!

Wacky headcanon: If Tagg (and apparently other characters) are using British slang, and perhaps if Walter and Briar speak Russian, then “our islands” might be what once was the United Kingdom and Ireland. And Abroad might be what once was America, which could certainly be the epicenter of a… Read more »

On my list of things I’d like to see an answer to in this comic, in reverse order: 1) Abroad? Where is it, exactly? Oakewood’s statement makes me think Abroad is another region (possibly another island) among the island(s) he refers to there. The name of the place makes things frustratingly vague, since “abroad” can be used in general to mean “outside of the country the speaker and listener are in”.

Welp, score minus one for Oakewood’s scientific curiosity. As one who was weaned on science (or at least scientific educational programming) myself, I would at the very least listen to the corgs’ explanation and *then* decide if it’s ridiculous or not.
