Time for lunch. M February 18, 2019 at 12:35 am 7 months ago How to navigate pun based humor in a fictional world where everyone uses translation devices? Christopher Baldwin February 18, 2019 at 8:54 am 7 months ago Since it’s a humor comic, and I was unwilling to forfeit that entire field of gags, I long ago decided the way I was going to to navigate it was to ignore the issue.

War Pig February 18, 2019 at 12:58 am 7 months ago Slintens, their anger is only matched by their incompetence.

The Other Mike February 18, 2019 at 7:04 am 7 months ago Well, as Heinlein could have told you, there ain’t no such thing as a free launch. Rikard February 18, 2019 at 9:41 am 7 months ago Bwa-ha-ha! Of dear, it’s just not the pod-people’s day, is it? Good thing it’s not labeled in latin… Peter Rogan February 18, 2019 at 6:57 pm 7 months ago I’m still amazed that such effrontery hasn’t resulted in Laufian extinction Galaxy-wide. How much of this nonsense can those in power tolerate before they send the troops and the nerve gas? But then, Emily has never encountered them before in her present rôle. And she could decide it will be a calmer and more peaceable Galaxy not needing her to return to service with a bit of judicious genocide now. After all, resolving the Spacetrawler crisis required a similar solution, and I’m fairly sure the extermination of the Laufians won’t have anywhere near the same economic effect. It seems a no-brainer for Emily to go no-Laufian. Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
