Amazingly enough, a couple weeks ago was the first time I’d ever seen the movie Alien. Which was scary as hell and REALLY good. Since I knew Emily would be fleeing in an escape pod, it was SO tempting to parody Alien in Spacetrawler. But it is simply not that kind of comic. A nod to it would have been fine, but today’s strip is so packed already I didn’t manage it. So, instead I drew a Spacetrawler styled Sigourney Weaver in underwear. A fair bargain.

Anyhow. Plenty else to blog about as well.
Congratulations to Jon Rosenberg for having such a successful year with his awesome new strip Scenes From A Multiverse, but more importantly, congratulations on the announcement that he and his wife are expecting twins.
And on anniversaries, congratulations to Gary Tyrrell for 5 years of awesome blogging about webcomics at Fleen. May golden fleeced moustaches pave your personal webcomic blogging road to heaven.
