Again, I’m still in the midst of moving (I should be somewhere around South Dakota by the time you read this). My “real” scanner is in NY, and I was using my old tiny junky one back in Seattle. Which MEANS that the washes didn’t scan right and I couldn’t get them to line up. But, for now, it’s done. Sometime after I get there, I’ll go back and re-scan and fix it all.
I enjoyed building Dusty’s “vehicle.” I took the actual frame of a tricycle and welded it to a missile. I’m sure the Mihrrgoots did the same thing.
Can’t speak for anyone else, but I’d ride the hell out of that tricycle missile.
Why do I think allowing Dustin to talk i always a bad idea?
@War Pig Because you’re right?
They’re definitely doomed 🙂
He’s flying blind on a rocket sled, but he’s no Flash Gordon.
funniest damn exchange yet.
This is goddamned hilarious. That was one of the funniest “What the fuck?”s I’ve ever seen. That could not have been better executed.
Love that the unbridled Eebs have settled on togas as their usual form of dress.
Is this the first time we’ve seen the word “fuck” in this comic? It’s certainly an appropriate usage.
@Tim, in about half the strips Krep’s been in. 😉
Packing/cleaning took longer than hoped. We’re just in Missoula enjoying breakfast at the hobnob (thank goodness for smartphones, where you can start looking for decent places to eat 30 miles before passing through and not have to rely on billboards). 🙂
Greets from South Dakota 🙂
That pod looks a hell of a lot like a stumpy maverick missile with a seat and steering wheel.
So, Chris, why did you have a tricycle frame and a missile available to weld together? 😉
I still keep mistaking Shuar for a large Eeb.
Hee hee hee! Somehow, that tricycle frame is perfect for Dustin. I like panel six especially. And he’s still calling Earth “Dustinia”. Yup, complete moron. I can’t wait to see what he’s in for with the renegade Eebs. 🙂
I still sometimes wonder how things would have worked out differently if Nogg had found Bill instead of Dustin as he had originally planned…
With Dusty on the side of the newly free Eebs I think there is nothing in universe that can stop them!
Heeheeheee- Maverick and a Goose!
Good thing the Eebs want some humorous dick wit with delusions of omnipotence is funny to them. Imaging if they found Him like I do, a pain in the everything and to send him away pronto.
That bare bones ride he has is perfect in summation. He doesn’t even warrant a full pod. Just a missle with a seat and an AI smarter than him. Hilarious!!!!!
The posture and attitude of the eebs in their ship reminds me of the giant greek god aliens in a Star Trek episode.
@Prairie – Heh! http://www.startrek.com/uploads/assets/articles/7300e02884d863efd7f67adc70889efd91321158.jpg
*starts to laugh and can’t stop* Hey lest see if we can make him do that squigly move with his body again!!” mheheheehheehehehehe
@CompaniaHill: “I still sometimes wonder how things would have worked out differently if Nogg had found Bill instead of Dustin as he had originally planned…”
Perhaps when Spacetrawler’s done we can get Chris to draw the “alternate universe” version…
@Marianna: Hmm. Not a long diversion from the main story, but a peek might be fun. Maybe at some point the Eebs build Professor van Manderpootz’s subjunctivisor (http://gutenberg.net.au/ebooks06/0607281h.html) and look into a few alternate timelines. Ya never know, maybe things would have turned out disastrously for some reason if Bill had been on board instead of Dustin.
Come to think of it, a subjunctivisor could provide all kinds of comedy potential. Just look at the mileage Dimitri has gotten from his approxiscan! Hint hint, C.J… 🙂
To ride a missile, one needs a cowboy hat.
@coldelectrons: Only if you ride it bareback. Not if you have a tricycle seat. 🙂
