There Calvin is trumped by rain, where here you have a spaceship land and squash as trump. Coyoty August 24, 2016 at 1:46 am 5 years ago Our solar system has a shipwash? Are we no longer a dark planet? “Visit rustic Earth, home of Russian tea cookies!” 0z79 August 24, 2016 at 2:43 pm 5 years ago Dude, you have like, a gift with this. TB August 26, 2016 at 6:59 pm 5 years ago I assume you could wash a spaceship pretty much anywhere you could wash a large boat or other vehicle. It’s not like you need special soap for spaceship hulls. Except maybe Shuttle tiles. EvilMidnightLurker August 24, 2016 at 3:24 am 5 years ago Another tale told in flashback, then? *gets out popcorn* EvilMidnightLurker August 24, 2016 at 3:34 am 5 years ago The “First Strip Current Series” link goes to the current strip. Tim McCormack August 24, 2016 at 8:32 am 5 years ago Maybe the shipwash is just a route through the ammonia clouds of Jupiter. Christopher Baldwin August 24, 2016 at 8:50 am 5 years ago @IAmIgor, I loved that strip. I enjoyed using the skeleton of that concept for another purpose though, to re-enforce the theme of Spacetrawler: just when you think you have power/control over something, “thooomp.” @Coyoty, well, there WAS non-human darkhuenium mining being done on the far side of uranus. @EvilMidnightLurker, thank you for catching that! I couldn’t set it until I’d designed the site and then uploaded the first strip (this weekend) and then forgot! Updated now. 🙂 Night-Gaunt49 August 24, 2016 at 1:19 pm 5 years ago Coyoty August 24, 2016 at 1:46 am Our solar system has a shipwash? Are we no longer a dark planet? “Visit rustic Earth, home of Russian tea cookies!” – If it does we didn’t put it there. Probably at one of the galactic stops I’d say. And he was being sarcastic to the man anyway. mikeweasel August 25, 2016 at 2:54 pm 5 years ago Hooray! Z2 August 26, 2016 at 3:59 am 5 years ago You know, I didn’t especially think this comic was my favorite; but I’ve read it three times and now that I find out it’s back I’m literally vibrating with glee, so it must be pretty high on the list. in other words: Squeee! heng August 26, 2016 at 11:01 am 5 years ago The “GOB: Spacetrawler”?!? Isn’t that kinda like naming your ship the “USSS: Nine-Eleven”? Weird name… Christopher Baldwin August 26, 2016 at 11:05 am 5 years ago @Heng, ha! Yes. It will all be explained. 🙂 TB August 26, 2016 at 7:00 pm 5 years ago I would love it if the eventual book came out, and it was still “I Don’t Know the Title Yet.” Muzhik August 27, 2016 at 5:34 pm 5 years ago @Coyoty, well, there WAS non-human darkhuenium mining being done on the far side of Uranus. Now that Earth has a seat on the GOB, are we at least getting a cut of the darkhuenium profit? (Tucked away safely in some trust fund account, no doubt, next to Dimitri’s profits from his Russian Tea Cakes.) Prezombie April 10, 2017 at 6:28 pm 5 years ago Um, you called the murder mystery story book 4 already. Might want to change that to book 3.5, or this one to 5. Christopher Baldwin November 4, 2017 at 2:29 pm 4 years ago Fixed and titled! Thanks! Efogoto August 25, 2018 at 6:50 pm 3 years ago Had to go back and re-read Spacetrawler now that you’ve started Book 7, and wanted to note how much I love that the panel of the GOB Spacetrawler over the Earth is a beautiful callback to that of the IA Starbanger over the Earth at the start of Book 1, and that while Mr. Zorilla’s house looks the same, he’s added a flower bed. It’s glorious continuity that also shows the passage of time, the result of a lot of work. Thank you for putting in the effort to make quality entertainment.
