Today’s strip is sort-of a post-script to book #1. Good times for Shuar and Flineous. Prepress is done for book #1, and it’s ready to be shipped off to printer first thing Monday. I am very excited. And I will now forever associate the pre-presss of this book with Lucy Maud Montgomery’s “Anne of Green Gables” which I listened to on audiobook the entire time.
Dave Kellett’s in my sights today. He FINALLY created an official website for his comic Drive. Looks awesome, Dave! As well, I just finished reading his eighth collection of his comic Sheldon, and it was excellent. My favorite parts were probably the Star Wars Babies, starring Baby Admiral “izza twap” Ackbar, and Arthur the duck’s several day rant on roads not taken and lives not lived, which I can’t help wonder if it’s Dave himself thinking “I’m a cartoonist, how the hell did I end up here?” Also, having finally met Dave (at NEWW), and had several drinks with him, I also have a new perspective of the strip — the zany fun and laughter at life which in the strip really comes from who he is. Nice! :)
Another LOL page. Make that LMAO.
I love how Shuar’s antennas wave about as she thinks! Can’t wait til the next installment of “As the Space Trawler turns”
The mark of a great comic strip….in 8 panels, there were 10 words total and I STILL fell off my chair laughing!

Love Flineous’s expression in the last panel. I’m with the Coyote here…. mastery.
Actually, you know what, I love ALL Flineous’s expressions in this strip.
How can he hear her?
“Well, you wanna play I spy? I spy something… white”
“Good! Now it’s your turn!”
@sirbacon: His outer ear got… uh… cut. His inner ear is still okay.
Wait… Dimitri on the communicator? Oh.
By the way, I have to commend you on Flineas’s expressions. In panel 5, you can see he’s moving the ears he no longer has.
I suppose Flineous can have synthetic ears made once they’ve been rescued.
…He seems to have ditched the other ears.
@Frank, right, thanks, i forgot to link. Dimitri is in the communication-vids between Shuar and the I.A. Star Banger here and here.
@sirbacon, Frank’s right on that one. His inner ear is undamaged. 🙂

Are the background set pieces intentionally referencing Thunderbird 3?
Lol! That’s awesome, @Brendan. Well, it holds no symbolic meaning or anything, if that’s what you mean. But I build each background in 3-D sketchup, and often use spaceships, engines, etc as parts of the background to get detail in (without having to spend hours and hours on each set piece, especially those which appear maybe once or twice). 🙂
