Felix December 14, 2017 at 12:18 pm 3 years ago Tell me Kangaroo Conan, what is best in life? Kangaroo Conan: “To Hit. To Mate. To Eat. These be best in life!” Coyoty December 11, 2017 at 2:54 am 3 years ago If there were a picket fence on the ship, Bikkie would be painting it now. Jude December 11, 2017 at 5:34 am 3 years ago “I adore these two nutters.” …as do I! Anesu doesn’t chastise Bikkie but let’s him ramble on. No wonder he likes being around her. navarl December 11, 2017 at 9:42 am 3 years ago LOL! I love Bikkie! CADirk December 11, 2017 at 11:13 am 3 years ago They might be nuts, but in a way, they also make sense. Harena December 11, 2017 at 6:12 pm 3 years ago Ohman, I was cracking up during this entire exchange… and then I saw your commentary, Christopher, and I knew we were all on the same page ;D ;D Christopher Baldwin December 12, 2017 at 1:06 pm 3 years ago 🙂 Quasar December 11, 2017 at 7:20 pm 3 years ago Hi Christopher, today I deleted all my Patreon pledges, and I briefly wanted to explain why. It is nothing personal at all – I love your comic. It is just that Patreon recently sent an email to all existing patrons, explaining that they will unilaterally increase the amount of our pledges in an effort to increase the earnings of all of their creators. As much as I love the creators such as you, I don’t love Patreon, and I find their decision unethical. Therefore I have deleted all of my pledges with them. If there is some other, more ethical micropayment service you can use, I would be happy to continue supporting your work! Christopher Baldwin December 12, 2017 at 1:08 pm 3 years ago Thank you for reaching out, Quasar. I’m researching options (and am hoping that Kickstarter’s “Drip” comes out of beta, and becomes available for all creators soon!) Quasar December 16, 2017 at 10:32 pm 3 years ago Hi Christopher, it seems that Patreon has finally listened to its customers (and undoubtedly the bottom line) and after several days of pressure they have deactivated the self-destruct sequence (https://blog.patreon.com/not-rolling-out-fees-change/). So I have reinstated my pledges today. I hope that your other former supporters will do the same! I’m still open to switching to Drip, when that comes out of beta, and if it turns out to be better. (Meanwhile, Kickstarter seems to have missed an opportunity by not having Drip ready when Patreon decided to play roulette with its business model). Night-Gaunt49 December 11, 2017 at 7:49 pm 3 years ago What commentary? Muzhik December 11, 2017 at 7:53 pm 3 years ago Why do I think Bikkie has a WONDERFUL future in corporate law? TO HIT! TO MATE! TO EAT! Pretty much sums up the corporate lawyers I’ve known. Using much more “genteel” language, of course. Aaron Gullison December 11, 2017 at 8:05 pm 3 years ago I’m starting to consider shipping these two. reynard61 December 13, 2017 at 3:39 am 3 years ago Pretty sure that the Post Office, UPS, FedEx and DHL won’t accept a package *that* dangerous… Peter Rogan December 11, 2017 at 8:42 pm 3 years ago Bikkie could be one hell of a natural leader. He has passion, and his sincerity is beyond all doubt. He’s also not afraid to get his hands (sic) dirty (sic!) doing the work. If he could find a way to make others take up his skills and his fight, there’s no limit to what he might be able to do. But lacking the desire to get others to do what he does, he remains the pawn of whoever finds a way to make his passion work for them. He’s lucky Anesu isn’t that type of person. So are a lot of other people, really. Now, if Joyce chose a path of action that required Bikkie’s unique skills… she might never have to bend an I-beam in her bare hands again. Docard December 12, 2017 at 6:16 am 3 years ago First time out in space, and they both agree that they aim to misbehave. Paul December 12, 2017 at 7:54 am 3 years ago Bikkie has been spotted and photographed! http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/10/11/huge-6ft-5in-muscle-bound-kangaroo-photographed-bathing-creek/ Christopher Baldwin December 12, 2017 at 1:11 pm 3 years ago Yeah, goodness, Kangaroos are terrifying. Galane December 13, 2017 at 4:08 am 3 years ago There’s supposed to be a kangaroo that likes to crush metal buckets but I couldn’t find any video of him actually doing it, just still images of him holding a bent up bucket. Peter Rogan December 12, 2017 at 10:49 pm 3 years ago Oh my goodness! Daremonai December 12, 2017 at 2:54 pm 3 years ago Heh. I originally read his last line as ‘neutral genius’ and thinking Bikkie would make a great ‘true neutral’. Peter Rogan December 12, 2017 at 10:50 pm 3 years ago He just radiates ‘chaotic neutral,’ doesn’t he? Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
