Can you be stuck in quicksand in the air?

Submitted by Anonymous

Can you be stuck in quicksand and forced to boobs and butt to defend yourself if you're flying in the air?  I think this woman is googling that question as we speak.

3 comic panels, on the bottom left panel is Lady Death saying "By all that is Unholy!" and her stomach is practically non-existent, on the right is a large panel where Purgatori (red skinned black haired demon woman) shouts "ATTACK! Raze this overdecorated hovel to the bare earth! Leave nothing unravaged!" and Lady Death is facing her in the front of the panel with her butt very clearly facing the audience and seemingly disconnected from her torso in front, she is shouting "Purgatori!"

Independence Butts

Although I'm not American, it is Independence Day for Americans, so in that spirit, have some panels of Lady Death and Purgatori's butts attempting to break free of their bodies and declare independence.

TFW you put your dress on backwards and on your butt

Lady Death melting in every panel

I guess she's Lady Death so she doesn't need organs, and it's probably fine and normal for her butt to slide off or her body to twist into a Tetris block while fighting.
