It was so lovely out yesterday that we hiked up in the hills up behind the little town we’re staying in the Colorado Rockies. And then today I was glued to a table, inking like the dickens. Not actually glued. And not listening to Dickens. But you know.
Also, don’t forget to check out the guest strip I’m doing for Dave Kellett’s funny awesome strip, “Drive!” I did an eleven page story, and one will post every Tuesday, so make sure you keep up on it! (and read the archives too. Worth it).
Maaaybe not the best first impression. But on the other hand, the plot thickens. This is clearly not their first interaction with other species.
Thinks a lot of himself, this Keltrex? Like if Perry the Platypus had to defuse a Doofenshmirtz-inator.
Internal Memo by the Aulton* space defense† forces:
1) Never announce firing the Keltrexitor over the radio.
2) Also do not announce firing the “super-secret off-world super-weapon”.
3) Not even call it the “you-know-what-weapon-wink-wink”.
4) Just press the button!
5) How is the skirt of this young acrobatic girl staying in place?
6) Is this an Artificial Anti-Artificial-Gravity Skirt (A3GS™)?
7) => These aliens are clearly technologically way superior to us – prepare to fire all the, uhm, “you-know-what…” – d’oh!
* I guess they’re doing this alphabetically
Nogg and Co (tm, c, pat.pend, etc..) have access to advancements from across the entirety of the known universe. Obviously their pleat technology is light years ahead of ours.
This explains why Nogg keeps asking the humans who Dr. Discombobul is.
I WAS listening to Dickens. Actually to me reciting Dickens. Prep work for Christmas shows. You can never start too early. Did you know that Marley was dead to begin with?
By the way, much as I loved, and I do mean loved the first series, I am so engrossed in this one and I think that in many respects it is superior to the first. Part of that, perhaps, is the fact that the setting is already understood and you can play a bit more without having people question the underlying structure. Wonderful work.
@Steven, that is so nice to hear. Thank you. 🙂
When he mentioned the Keltrixitor I was thinking of James Kirk and Corbomite.
And then it turned out that by a highly improbable linguistic coincidence, in the local dialect “keltrexitor” meant “white flag of truce.”
And I am even more impressed with Anesu’s outfit, given that its skirt seems capable of defying gravity.
So, the Keltrexitor will totes solve the Jabby problem then? Glad that’s sorted.
In some weird way Keltrexitor reminded me of Rhyno from RAtchet & Clank aaand Purgatory from CI: Unregulated. There is something about weapons that are the ultimate killers in respective universes.
