06/13/11 Pierrot and Krep Wake Up


As you can see in the banner below the strip, I’ll be tabling at the Philadelphia Comic Con this weekend, Friday-Sunday the 17th-19th. Come by and say hello! The hours are:

Friday noon-8
Saturday 10-7
Sunday 10-5

For those of you who earnestly theorized that maybe Krep and Pierrot were actually dead, I hope this strip makes up for it a tiny bit by giving Mr. Zorilla your voice.

It was nice to receive a nod from David Brin (auther of the “Uplift Universe” series), it’s always a good feeling when you hear that people whose work you respect have you on their radar.

You’ll be happy to hear that my girlfriend and I DID get away for a night. We rented a cabin and had a lovely time despite the cold and lack of much sun. We made a fire and burnt the hell out of a pan cooking some (surprisingly delicious) French toast. We hiked around the area, we read poetry. All-in-all, it was pretty classic. And I feel refreshed and revived and ready to tackle the next several weeks of non-stop work. Aye-yi-yi!

    Huzzah for the cabin getaway!! I love the ocean on a cold day. No one else out there to have to share it with. And it makes going back inside and getting warm and dry even that much more special.

  2. That’s the NW! Glad you got away for a little while. I also find that french toast can be greatly enhanced by the addition of a little vanilla and bourbon. Or bourbon vanilla. Whatever you have handy.

    @Jordan and @CaptainJack, sounds like it’s best to start with a bunch of rum and whiskey until they’re gone and the french toast are entirely obliterated from memory. And then drink the maple syrup.

    @Jake, Jake, Jake! It’s simple! It’s … ahhh … it’s … uhh … something … science fictiony. Yeah! That’s it! Something science-fiction-like that would just take too long to explain right now. @Christopher, back to you.

    @JakeC, it’s a misleading pronoun. In panel #2, sentence #2, “it” refers to the flame, not the gas. So, “when engulfed by the flame, you’re rendered unconscious.”

    Because THAT makes so much more sense. 😉

    @Prior, Perhaps there are species (such as, I don’t know, maybe the Mihrrghoots?) where scent conveys meaning and forms an important part of communication. If that’s the case, then it would be essential for various gasses to be passed through the suit material. Seeing as how Pierrot was so disgusted by the ooze that carried a scent that told everyone to stay away, I imagine that might be the case.
