Some scripts just kick my butt. I wrote and re-wrote this a dozen times. Aside from there being about 9 lines (give-or-take) ranging from amusing to (possibly) funny, the “funny” ones just weren’t ringing true. Or funny. Or something. But in the end, I’m totally pleased with it. Pat myself on the back. 🙂
Libraries must be dens of iniquity then!
Let’s hope the ship doesn’t land in Ireland. Otherwise, it would lose its reputation of being free from snakes.
That’s quite the ship you’ve drawn, Chris. When you do a mockup of one, what do you build them from and how large are they? Do you take them along with your other possessions when you travel the country?
I’m fortunate to live on the west coast (Canada) and read your strips the night before most. I SO look forward to reading them! A treat before bedtime.
Looks like standard faster-than-dark ship to me, with some home improvements.
She collects tree pelts! Monster!
I really dig Pilot’s footwear : ) It’s like my Berkinstocks of yore had a boot-like variety for ankle support.
Good to finally have a name for the bags of snakes.
Do kangaroos ever walk plantigrade?
They walk five-legged, with the tail acting as the fifth. They alternate between the front two legs plus tail and the back two legs.
Looks like Jibbz may be related to Krep on a spiritual level, presumably through being 2nd in command to a captain not fully cured of their romantic notions.
At least there are certain advantages of having a weakness for dead tree ground up with glue rather than for dead Furryite ground up with whatever they dilute it with.
Respect to the Laufian Slinten Pod o’ snakes , perhaps not for their acting ability, but for staying in character come hell or high water.
What’s a Laufian Slinten pod want with Earth?
Right. The “snakes” St. Patrick drove out of Ireland were really a pod colony.
Of course! I had it on the word of his grandson. (Maybe I’m not that old but who knows? I feel it sometimes.)
I like her.
Soooo. What happened to the first Gravelaxe?
Perhaps they simply decided to upgrade instead of retrofit and it was traded in for a greased dark light speed model when spacetrawlers were banned. Not as theatrically interesting from a storytelling point of view, but economically sound.
I sent the last panel to my friend who owns a bookstore.
Aliens = future clients. 🙂
