***strip has been colored and updated. Here’s the old b&w version if you want to see it.**
The scanner’s been ordered, and hopefully will arrive soon. Since I would have to re-color it when the new scanner came in, I’m holding off from coloring it for now. Next week I’ll be busy catching up. Wheee!
And The Bent Agency (who represent me) put up a nice author page of me on their website.
The furryites are doing a seance. Who are they trying to contact?
isn’t it the calm before the storm, or the eye of the storm? Or am I missing a joke maybe?
Reading this as “I, before the storm”
Hold up here; is the normally blunt and slightly aggressive Krep crying?
Grammar nitpick– “crew” denotes all crew members, not an individual. Perhaps Dusty’s line should have been “Looks like you’ve let another of your crew die.”
Love that detail in the third panel.
@jo, right you are! Doh! I changed it.
@scienceguy8, ayyyyup. Good think nobody is watching.
@zb, I meant it as the entire crew. Dusty is pretty convinced that they’re all going to die. But I think I could better clarify that, thank you.
@Coyoty Their lost, Burger-bound comrades?
Looks like Bent put the wrong twitter on your author page. Unless you really were into online marketing in April of ’08. 😉
Does Yuri understand the Furryites speak?
Should leave this one black and white, it works well as a calm before the storm touch.
@Christopher, The “looks like” part implies that he’s commenting on the current situation, in which it appears only Martina is about to die (and possibly Yuri). It doesn’t make sense to me that at that moment he’d also be thinking that Pierrot, Emily, and Dimitri are about to die too. Especially Dimitri (and especially Emily (and well okay Peirrot should have died a few times by now)).
It like seeing some of your line work before it has been colored, especially panel 3; very nice.
It’s interesting – without the color the furryites remind me of Ted, the bear. 🙂
@Crestlinger: I was thinking the same thing. The monochrome enhances the dramatic tension.
@Coyoty, it’s not a seance; they’re playing psychic poker. A bit of “Norbus Norus Hold ‘Em”. And now we have to wait until Monday to see what the River holds…
I think Dusty’s dialog is fine. After all, who would expect Dusty to have an accurate grasp of the situation and be able to express it clearly?
I’m really afraid that Nogg’s right, though. I imagine an epilogue where an aged Dusty is continuing a long career of calling radio talk shows and rambling to disbelieving hosts about the time he was abducted by an alien.
Is there a color version of this page somewhere? I couldn’t find a link.
@Patrick_Henry_Downs, crap! I never finished that. Um. Okay. On the list to do today.

Just had to chuckle over that last panel…. 😀
