Phew! Returning from a convention is often as hectic as getting ready for it. But I got the strip done with a couple hours to spare. Yay!
You know, for today’s strip I have to thank all of you for helping me. When I first revealed that Humans and Eebs shared common ancestry you all discussed it in intense detail, which was at terrific guidepost for writing it.
In other news, Cadfael and I sat in the backyard today, enjoying the sun and afternoon breeze. It’s very very relaxing listening to a cat walking through the first crisply dry fallen leaves.
Awesome…I never thought it would make so much sense LOL
So, they are really human eebings…
I love how idiotic that explanation is. It makes it funnier. Hehehe
Typo alert: Panel 3… it’s “led” not “lead.” Panel 8… “MayBe” is missing its B.
Panel 9, is that their spaceship? Is it really chiseled from rock? I guess it could be, if you are your own power drive.
Imperial Units on panel 1 srsly?!
I always thought that aliens prefered metric kind units
Someone set their exposition drive to greased dark light speed!
This is the best episode yet. 😀
This is a double bonus. And interesting bit of funny exposition and it is funny. Or is it the other way around? So what could happen to humans who colonize planets just a bit different from Terra. I recall that in the books of Andrea Norton she had humans who had been mutated by their colony planets in interesting ways. Didn’t know telekinesis could do such a thing.
Panel 8 just cracks me up. 😀
Cool! The translation chip also does unit conversion! (I’ll be danged if the frenchman is actually thinking in US units)
And Mr. Zorilla, the dark side is night. Come on, a rich, wise man like you should know that!
Also, what the story doesn’t tell us is how many test ships they made where the proto-eebs died of asphyxiation, intolerance to 4-G forces, etc. etc. Or how many regular humans saw them. Finally an explanation for those flying-saucer-like petroglyphs!
Exposition dummy crashtest at 150kmh *G*
The lowermost leftmost panel makes me think od Android OS.
Hurr hurr, he want to look at Uranus.
To see if there’s aliens mining it.
Because Dustin sold it.
STOP ME BEFORE I MAKE A METHANE JOKE
I don’t know what the hell’s going on any more!
It reminds me of Christopher Stasheff’s “Warlock” series. A group of telekinetic humans colonize another planet – and evolve. There was another series as well, but I forget its name and author 🙁
Wish I could edit my previous posts…
The planet was “Gramarye”.
Aliens are drilling in the dark side of Uranus. That is all.

Please tell me you realize that is not how evolution works
It’s prob too late for this but Quantoo’s name is spelled two different ways, just on this page. I think it’s been different before, too.
