I am taking a two strip vacation. To what? To work! Yay!
And I have two amazing fill-ins for you. The first by Don Ahé of Road Apples Almanac (colored by me).
I think that if there is any current embodiment of George Herriman, it is Don Ahé. His cartooning is simple and incredibly expressive. His humor is gentle, hilarious, and utterly unpretentious. I cannot recommend his work enough.
I was fortunate enough to meet Don at TCAF last year. Sadly I won’t be making it to TCAF this year (this spring already guarantees to overwhelm me), but here’s a memory of happy day of Don, Brian, and myself about town.
How sweet, the loving couple get together.
just beautiful – lovely exposition. Well Done on taking a break too …
WATCH OUT FOR THAT…ooo…’tree’
Nicely done, Don!
Panel 8, “suicidal pill” should probably be “suicide pill”. Unless it’s meant to describe a sentient pill that wants to kill itself.
Is that who I think it is? Awwww…
These are the kinds of worlds you want to avoid.
@ZB – brilliant – I love the idea of a suicidal pill. *Chuckles*
At first it reminded me of Luke Skywalker’s whinging when he commenced searching for [The GREAT Jedi Warrior] Yoda on Dagoba.
The blue guy’s name is Baldwin in reverse. Why would you kill a baldwin, just because they’re a dime a dozen?
I bet the “La-La” bird is the most dangerous one on that planet. It is beautiful though. Very colorful.
@Night-Gaunt, of course she’s the most dangerous creature on the planet! There’s a scene in “The Godfather” when Michael Corleone is hiding out in Sicily. He catches his first glimpse of Apollonia and is instantly smitten. His friend sees this and tells Michael “In Sicily, women are more dangerous than shotguns.” I get the feeling it’s that way on this planet, too.
Awesome, Don!… and Chris’ colors are fantastic!
Yep, recognized Oohlooh right away. I wonder if the next strip will show how Curn convinced her to leave her homeworld.
Also, I love that Niwdlab gets a tag, despite only making this one appearance. 🙂
