Ooh, still craziness here. Moving across the entire country is quite the overwhelming adventure.
Again, I am SO glad that the last comic excited you all as much as it does me. And don’t worry, this contemplating that Dimitri is doing isn’t the ONLY reason he dropped his drink.
Mostly I’m just glad I got to draw Napoleon. Who doesn’t like drawing Napoleon?
Oh, hey, I did a guest comic for “Dinosaur Comics” by the awesome Ryan North. And it’s a dated reference, and I drew it years ago, and so it almost makes no sense anymore (OOOH, like it did at the TIME). But it went to his spam folder and he never saw it. But we met, he was awesome, he has now seen it, and posted it in his blog. Oh, and he forgot to mention to me that he’d posted it, and I missed the blog. So I’m late linking back. I’ll shut up, you go read it already.
…that’s beautiful all around.
Man. I want to grow up to be an enormous star cruiser now.
A lot better than your average pillow talk.
I will go down with this ship (star cruiser).
I won’t hurt myself and surrender (to the french)
@Kathleen: wonderfull reference you found there!
That’s our Dimitri, he needs no help getting shipped. :*)
But… They called it a mother ship…
I suppose this means I’m not going to be a planet like Mother Earth.
Hi Would you add a Haldevis tag to the 4/18 strip, please. That one didn’t show up when I was trying to find her first appearance. Thanks.
Hmm, what’s this that Dmitri’s talking about in panel 9? Whose brain are they using? :-/
“Who doesn’t like drawing Napoleon?” Trying to snag a bit of Kate Beaton’s audience now, are we? 😉
Napoleon wasn’t ruler of anything – the capital of the Russian Empire was St. Petersburg at the time, and had been for about a hundred years.
Jeah, I was going to point that one out, too.
But the orthodox patriarchy as well as the powerstructure of the important feudal clans was based heavily in Moscow. Dont forget that Peter the great relocated the capital to St.Petersburg to westernize the country and break the power of gentry an clergy – without much lasting effect , though.
Which was the main reason russia did not crumble under Napoleons grande army.
How does he maintain an adequate seal on his oxygen mask with all of that facial hair?
I admit, it was a bit of a stretch to say he “was the ruler of Russia,” and was largely a poetic description. I took a lot of European history in high school, and also used Wikipedia (oh, bastion of truth) which puts it this way, “Relying on classical rules of warfare aiming at capturing the enemy’s capital (even though Saint Petersburg was the political capital at that time, Moscow was the spiritual capital of Russia), Napoleon had expected Tsar Alexander I to offer his capitulation at the Poklonnaya Hill but the Russian command did not think of surrendering.”
@Random_Guy, futuristic integrative gel adhesives. Soon available at the Circle K.
@Random Guy: The beard itself holds the mask to the face.
Been gone a few weeks, just caught back up. I love how this comic can be laugh out hilarious one second, and then beautiful and wonderful like today’s page. Rock on.
Um I can’t get it to load,it’s all fuzzy and pixelated!
I don’t like Dimitri’s plan to create Eebs that have been disarmed of their telikinesis, I can’t see the problem that this solves.
What am I missing?
Yesterday's installment of Spacetrawler almost works as a stand-alone strip: http://t.co/nH6r7EI7 Also, I kind of love it.
It does put things into perspective.
If I were stuck to the outside of a cruiser for a hundred years, I’d wanna fornicate too.
That has to be the oddest touching conversation I’ve ever read…
Indeed! Who doesn’t like drawing Napoleon? Especially Napoleon with a “Merde, c’est froid !” face

@Plane, the thing that it solves is that like it or not part of the problem is that with the Eebs level of power they’re going to be seen as a threat. What the GOB did was horrific, monstrous and evil, but the problem was that there is a certain kind of logic to ‘let’s tie up the monster so it can’t hurt us, and use it’ sure the monster gets free eventually but they rationalized it as protecting people FROM the Eebs. The issue is that if the Eebs have this kind of power, their roaring rampage of revenge may be justifiable but they’re also doing indiscriminate slaughter and destruction. If the Eebs can’t be quelled in a way that isn’t total slavery they’re either going to have total slavery, maybe worse than before, or the race will face total genocide.
