Old friends are best for dumb assignments and laughs.

    They were doing the Guardians of the Galaxy bit before the Guardians of the Galaxy.

    (“Does this make me Star-Lord?” “Not even close, Nogg.” “Bikkie is Rocket? Rocket Roo!” “No! Okay, forget the analogy!”)

    I like the way Krep’s pupil shrinks when he’s thinking. It’s practically the only visual clue to his inner thoughts. That said, I can see how being part of a Galactic-sized bluff would appeal to him. Gurf just wants a hoot.

  3. Y’know… I’m a little tired of folks picking on Nogg. He’s been called every nasty name in the space dictionary, and sure, he’s earned some of it, but at the end of the day he’s tried to do good things and sometimes even succeeded. I dearly wish that I had more of that kind of initiative.

      But that’s his purpose, to be the butt of jokes. Like Ysengrin in Gunnerkrigg Court. They’re supposed to be pathetic, not sympathetic. They’re not supposed to have redeeming qualities or grow as characters. Readers aren’t supposed to feel sorry for them. Everyone is supposed to play their intended roles and not get above themselves.

      (But it would be great storytelling if they do.)
