03/25/12 Backwardsness of Humans


In Seattle this weekend? I’ll be at the Emerald City Comic Con, tabling at the TopatoCo Island. I WON’T have anything new, I’m afraid. Book 2 is still at the printer. But I’ll have book #1 and the Little Dee books.

The original artwork for the Spacetrawler strip “Emily” is framed and hanging from today (March 26th) through sometime in April in the Ida Green Gallery, Austin College, Sherman, TX. The show is “Everything Old is New Again” put on by the The Ghost Town Arts Collective. Sadly I won’t get to see the show myself, so have a gander for me.

Angela Melick of the webcomic “Wasted Talent” has her new book “Welcome to The Real World” up for sale. Yay!

    @Leland, no, I’d say Nogg is all heart. Although his mouth does take up a significant portion of his anatomy.

    Can’t wait until Dimitri makes his appearance, drink in one hand, pistol in the other, and riding a wave of awesomeness and eeb power.

    Wait… Is that shirt the ONLY thing that Emily has on right now?

    I mean, Nogg probably isn’t sexually aroused by humans, so she probably doesn’t have to worry about him ogling her or the conversation with him getting awkward… but still…

    And Dusty isn’t a complete selfish a$$hole? šŸ˜‰

    Emily in something other than her regular outfit? This *must* be a brand new book.

    And, wow, she nailed it re: Martina. Lest we forget, Martina was only 19 at the beginning of the series.

    For Emily talking to Nogg is different from being in bed for sex. So she put on that shirt to step out. She may not care one way or the other but she doesn’t want to be distracting in any way anyway. Wait till Dimitry shows up alive to them.

    OK so by her logic then Dusty is…nonono..don’t believe that is gonna wash. Dusty is a jerk on the outside AND on the inside. Hm I guess that makes him extra special jerk then.

    In spite of Nogg characteristically misunderstanding humans, part of me thinks that perhaps Nogg did understand but was in denial. Just something about the way he’s looking out the window as he says it. He wants to believe it.

    Nuts, I moved away from Seattle all of three years ago. Albeit, I disliked the city, and hadn’t found comics until last year, or this one until a couple weeks ago, buy now I wish I lived in a metropolitan area. Missed it by THAT much.

    @KingInYellowTatters: Of course it is the only thing she has on. She probably only put it on to be warm while walking around the ship. If the ship temperature were a notch higher, Emily would be perfectly comfortable walking around nude. She wouldn’t care what the other humans would think, much less Nogg. Feh.

    Well, she might not walk around nude in front of Dusty. But then she wouldn’t want to walk around in front of Dusty in a spacesuit.

    This is a great page! Can’t believe I almost missed it (thought Wednesday’s page was Monday’s for a bit).

    Though, I suspect humans aren’t the only species who work this way.
