It’s like it’s made of bamboo, except not. Coyoty September 27, 2018 at 12:44 am 9 months ago 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!”) Peter Rogan September 27, 2018 at 2:53 pm 9 months ago 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. Night-Gaunt49 September 27, 2018 at 11:48 pm 9 months ago Best saleswoman in the galaxy. “Aw, do it for the yucks and lulz!” “Okay, I will….” Works for me. War Pig September 28, 2018 at 6:49 am 9 months ago Doesn’t the GOB have the technology and resources to fix Krep’s lost tentacles? Kaidah September 28, 2018 at 10:25 am 9 months ago Even though Krep seems like the kind of guy who would suffer just to (literally) spite his own face, I’ve always thought that he hasn’t had them replaced out of respect for Martina’s memory. After all, she lost a lot more than he did that day. …crap, that’s way to dark and heavy for a Friday. Uh…Ah! My favorite Anesu strip: https://www.baldwinpage.com/spacetrawler/2017/06/28/062817-letting-guests-in/ Hur hur! Laughing is fun! Joe England September 28, 2018 at 8:53 pm 9 months ago 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. Coyoty September 30, 2018 at 1:14 am 9 months ago 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.) War Pig September 28, 2018 at 9:45 pm 9 months ago Late with the Friday travel strip. Hope all is okay. We worry since you two are on the road so much. Christopher Baldwin September 28, 2018 at 11:18 pm 9 months ago Yes! All fine. No diary strip for two weeks. https://www.baldwinpage.com/journalcomics/2018/09/28/92818-diary-interim/ Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
