06/07/10 Pierrot meets a Native

|

And now that i have you all disturbed by the last strip, we move along with a fresh gait.
The news today for me is that I am re-running two of my previous strips I’ve done. Bruno ran daily from 1996-2004 and Little Dee ran from 2003 til 2010. The archives still remain online Bruno & Little Dee, but people have requested the daily dose format, and so I’m re-running them.
I’m especially excited about Bruno, which has literally hundreds of characters. With WordPress tags, it will make following specific characters very easy.

I must say, as a cartoonist, there is little in the world as pleasurable as a a face made utterly of purple-grey silly-putty.

    I noticed that your Archives page has a random ‘2009’ label at the bottom of it. The exact same thing happen to me on my Girls in Space comicpress site and I finally figured out how to fix it about a week ago. Although all of my posts were created in 2010, I had some ‘pages’ written in 2009, and this made the archive code pick up a year with no comic content. You may also have some draft pages from 2009 or possibly a 2009 post or page in your trash. Just re-save those pages/posts as 2010 so that you have nothing written in 2009 and hey presto – the 2009 will vanish.

    Hope this helps!

    So wait, their lack of taste in dress is because they wear… a fan hanging from their necks?

    Also, when I read the first two panels, I thought the native (Tornite?) was saying “I don’t believe it” because he thought Pierrot was praising the mask he was wearing, when he wasn’t wearing one. I guess I’m just slow on Munday mornings

    And speaking of “Munday”, is there any reason why he says “testicals”? Are they decals you paste on tests?

    @Frank;
    1. See! THAT’S why the citizens of the southwestern portion of the galactic spiral arm were so adamant in maintaining their cultural heritage through the use of bolo ties! (See the comments for “Down to Tornitus 6“)

    2. No, “testicals” are NOT decals you paste on tests. They are large quizzicals.

    P.S. I like the fact that it’s apparent that all the walkways funnel into that area in front of the restaurant. IOW, Pierrot has reached the end of the road.
    (Or sidewalk. )
    (Technically a walkway, but you get my meaning.)
    (I hope.)

  5. I was looking at the quadruped in the purple jumpsuit in the first panel (it is, after all, the largest being in that panel), and realized that it has no apparent manipulative organs. The proboscoid projection in what appears to be its face doesn’t seem to be long enough to work like an elephant’s trunk, and the pedal extremities (oh, let’s call them “feet”) look like they’re only good for walking on, altho’ the boots could be concealing a lot. So I started wondering, how could such creatures, with no way to make or use tools, develop a starfaring civilization?

    And then, more to the point, I wondered how it had managed to put on that purple jumpsuit.

    But maybe I was mistaken when I assumed that it was sapient, and it’s actually a pet. Or the local equivalent of a sacred cow.

    @Herb, well THAT’S racist (specie-ist?) of you! Why are you assuming it’s wearing a purple jumpsuit? How do you know that purple is not its normal coloring, and it’s just walking around “feeling the breeze”, as it were?

    Thanks @Spencey. Not so worried about that, although I did fiddle with it with no success.

    Thanks, @Frank. corrected the testicular misspelling.

    @JKC….. um…. I’m just not sure bolo ties will ever make it in. But you have worked it into my subconscious, which is a mighty feat.

    @Herb, that is an excellent point, and totally overlooked by my cartoonist pen. I could explain it a dozen ways, including it being a pet, or that that species always dressed each other, or that it didn’t start wearing clothes until it built (with its trunk) the machines to put clothes on it, etc etc. The legs…. actually, those I’ll stand by, they’re kinda like Nogg’s, the knee joint is almost touching the body, the “thigh” as it were being somewhat inside the bulbous body/flesh. πŸ™‚

    Thanks, @Seth! They both have feeds, just pop the URL into your favorite reader. A lot of browsers will put thre “rss” symbol in the url area as well. And if neither of those work. Here (Dee) and here (Bruno

    @Christopher;
    So in a century or so when English Literature PhD candidates are writing thesises concerning the works of Christopher Baldwin and his effect on early 21st-century web culture, some poor schmuck (aka, someone spending huge sums of money for a degree that will never pay a fraction of what he or she spent getting it) will be able to trace the rebirth of the bolo tie fashion statement movement to subtle innuendos contained within your magnus opus, “Spacetrawler.”

    Sweet!
