Inivisibility cloaks! Yesss!!! —- I mean… wait. Nobody else is going to use them besides me, right?
Ah. So, let me tell you about Evan Dahm’s Rice Boy. I’d read it before, but online and in snippets. It was lovely, but at APE I bought the collection, and I can tell you that reading the entire thing as a full story in one sitting was marvelous. Magical and whimsical and bizarre and lovely. How many years until a Vattu collection?
What convention to hit next. Shall I go backwards? Let’s see, the convention previous to APE was MICE out in Boston. It was a sweet little con, and it was nice to see Colleen A F Venable and KC Green. Um. Yeah. That was an easy con-report if I ever done writ one before. :)
its a page of complete contrasts from that of Emily and her soon-to-be-chronic whipping of Kuu-Drahc!
From excitement to Bleargh Puddingdom!
What, no pan of fresh baked spacetrawlers upon arrival?
“Hum… How about without the brain clamping? What, that’s not optional? I beg to differ.”
Maybe they have those furry lumpkin sandwiches or whatever they’re called.
Clamp HIS brain and let him tell them everything. The Eebs can do it, I bet.
I think the second row would make a nice shirt for geeks
I’ve never noticed the handbrake before, essential kit in a spaceship!
I would totally check you out (not figuratively) if you made it to NYCC. Since not, I’ll just have to enjoy your company and wares from a distance.
I thought it was about time I stopped in to say how much I’m enjoying this comic. It’s rare to see such a mix of funny and dramatic/genuine, and you manage to pull it off on every page!
Holy Sh?t! Invisibility cloaks! I mean…. Holy Shi?!
And yes, that’s exactly what college feels like. Hopefully without ending in the death we know awaits Martina.
Also, Holey ?it, invisibility cloaks! Just… Holy ???
I don’t know, there’s a kind of sad feeling in this one, like we are approaching Martina’s moment of truth–I hope not!
@Scott, I was scheduled to do the Wizard Comic Con in September, but they changed the date on me. Next year I’ll aim for NYCC (can’t do mocca because it’s the same date as Stumptown).
Invisibility tech looks nifty, but from the description it probable glows like a searchlight in IR. Plus it seems like something that would only work on surfaces that were at a relatively steep (say, <45 degree) angle to the viewer. I'd like to see how it works from a more head-on angle, or on a curved surface. I'd also like to see what the effect looks like in air (notice the video demo was underwater, and the text says it works better in water).
However, reading the description of how it works, the sci-fi fan in me is squeeing over how perfectly the term "thermoptic camouflage" would apply.
HA! I found it! When you have Martina talking about, “…sticking our hand into a bag of pudding…”, that wouldn’t be … butterscotch pudding … would it?
(cue maniacal laughter)
