11/02/11 Under A Rock Previous | Next Hey, @Stewart, I did up a wallpaper of Monday’s strip (and I added a couple more panels)! I keep meaning to say, I do tweet. Me On Twitter: chris_j_baldwin Oh, and lastly: a new MAD is out with a piece-o-mine in it. Check it out on newsstands. 🙂 First Strip Original Series | First Strip Current Series | Archive | Most Recent 10/31/11 Epic Battle 11/07/11 The Cavalry Arrives 24 Comments Lessica November 1, 2011 at 9:11 pm 5 years ago I feel kind of dumb asking this, seeing as I literally -just- finished reading through the archive and should therefore still remember who the characters are – but who is Qwantoo? Have we met him/her/it yet? CBob November 1, 2011 at 9:15 pm 5 years ago Just wanted to say, great job on the up angle on Emily in panel 3. Looks almost like a different art style, since I’m so not used to seeing the faces from drastic angles like that, but it looks very cool. Also: “Qwantoo”/Quantum? Did I see what you did there? Christopher November 1, 2011 at 9:20 pm 5 years ago @Lessica, Qwantoo has been mentioned a couple times, but not revealed. @CBob, soome of that, and a bit of nonsense. 🙂 Eris Lobo November 1, 2011 at 9:22 pm 5 years ago 1) Awesome strip today (as usual)! Hmmm … were Emily’s eyes bugging out a bit in surprise or concern in that last panel? 2) I saw a guy with that copy of Mad Magazine in line right in front of me at the supermarket today! Now that I know that you had a piece in it, I should have tackled him after he bought it and taken it for myself! (Or maybe I should have just bought one like a sane person? Naaaaaah …) 3) I really want that new wallpaper you posted!!! Sweet! Emily and Kuu-drahc filling my screen with extra stuff!!! Now could you PLEASE put that whole thing (what you have for the wallpaper) on a T-shirt??? That would be SO KEWL!!! *bounces happily* 4) Eeep! I tried clicking on the “Donate” button to get the wallpaper but it just pulls up the generic entry into PayPal! What’s your donation address? 5) Yeah, I’m also wondering … who is Qwantoo??? I don’t seem to remember the dude (or dudette, as the case may be). Christopher November 1, 2011 at 9:34 pm 5 years ago @Eris_Lobo 3. Hm. I’ll ponder it. I’m a bit gun-shy about shirts what with my track-record this year. 4. sorry! fixed! 5. I should add a tag for when he was mentioned. Give me 5 minutes. Joyce Melton November 1, 2011 at 10:03 pm 5 years ago Leave him some sunblock, Emily. He’s already red as a lobster, next stage is burnt black. 🙂 Dajagr November 2, 2011 at 1:15 am 5 years ago So, Qwantoo, or Qwahntoo? (Both of them make my spellchecker unhappy, so maybe it doesn’t matter. Then again, so does Flrkwtzjbbl, and I think he’s more of a Power Three Feet to the Left of and Slightly Below the Throne.) Hawgowar November 2, 2011 at 3:55 am 5 years ago He seems rather unconcerned about being crushed, and rather talkative as well. Me? I’d be screaming in pain. Tim McCormack November 2, 2011 at 4:56 am 5 years ago I don’t trust him to be telling the truth about dying. He’s an alien, maybe he can detach something. Drillgorg November 2, 2011 at 6:01 am 5 years ago RIP Nightmare Squidward. Frank November 2, 2011 at 8:28 am 5 years ago People wondering who Qwantoo is, he was first named here: https://www.baldwinpage.com/spacetrawler/2011/05/17/spacetrawler-140/ his crime was given in the strip before that. naturalist charlie November 2, 2011 at 11:39 am 5 years ago I’m pretty sure I know who Qwantoo is, and that he was visually depicted in the strip at least two or three times. I won’t post more, because I don’t want to offer a spoiler, but if you go back and read certain relevant strips you may notice something I also noticed… Also, I think Kuu Drahc is telling the truth – he’s largely a figurehead… a somewhat more sinister Zaphod type. It’s not even out of the question that they were done with him and Qwantoo had someone give that rock a bit of a nudge… (or maybe he/it has implanted Eeb DNA too). Remember, Qwantoo likes to stay behind the scenes. Christopher November 2, 2011 at 12:17 pm 5 years ago Thanks, @Frank! And yes, if you follow the tags, there is now a Qwahntoo one. Although I want to say… I think there was a fourth strip which mentioned good ol’ Qwahntoo. Hm. Anyway. (also, I fixed the spelling of Q’s name in this strip) Stewart November 2, 2011 at 12:31 pm 5 years ago Huzzah! (Might be hard to fit all that on a t-shirt, though.) lily November 2, 2011 at 12:38 pm 5 years ago Welp, that was anticlimactic.. kedamono November 2, 2011 at 12:41 pm 5 years ago Looks like Dimitri is about to get his face slapped in this cameo appearance in The Whiteboard comic: http://www.the-whiteboard.com/autotwb1435.html Herandar November 2, 2011 at 12:53 pm 5 years ago Qwahn-one? No, I Qwahntoo. I’m truly sorry about this post. Miod November 2, 2011 at 1:00 pm 5 years ago Panel #10 is just awesome. I am laughing so hard at the dialog I’m gonna need hours to recover (-: Stewart November 2, 2011 at 1:40 pm 5 years ago incidentally, here’s a comment on my facebook after I posted yesterday’s strip as a reason people should read Spacetrawler: “The Spacetrawler comic you posted is currently stopping me from going to buy food.” Coldelectrons November 2, 2011 at 3:35 pm 5 years ago Emily was going to knock his block off, but was cock-blocked by a rock off a trek-tv-set knock-off. Tom November 2, 2011 at 10:37 pm 5 years ago Well, I’ll miss having Kuu-Drahc as the main villain, though to be quite fair, after knowing what unclamped Eebs are capable of, the G.O.B does feel like the lesser evil. Frank November 3, 2011 at 9:30 am 5 years ago It just hit me: She’s going to leave him with the ring! Eris Lobo November 3, 2011 at 11:26 am 5 years ago Hmm … I got a few of the wallpapers yesterday (and they do INDEED make my computer screen look spiffy, I have to admit!) … but I didn’t notice something until now … Pottybot is on the crew image wallpaper, just as prominently as pretty much anybody else (there’s actually more showing of Pottybot than Martina!) Has Pottybot been elevated to high-level crew status without my knowledge? Or maybe something else is going on … Maybe … Pottybot is actually … secretly … Qwahntoo??? Dum dum DUUUM!!!!! (play menacing music) Or maybe … Pottybot is the chosen one, intended by the fates to save the galaxy from both the G.O.B. and the Eeb menace? Or maybe … Pottybot is actually a god-like entity who likes being a trickster, playing the fool to those around him, while pretending to serve as a … err … no, that would be gross … *bleah* Whatever the case, inquiring (and paranoid) minds want to know, y’know!!! 🙂 Kathleen November 3, 2011 at 4:38 pm 5 years ago @coldelectrons: *standing ovation* Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
