I think for many women, we can wear many different guises as the need arises, but the ‘mom’ aspect never really goes away. After all, it is only natural for us to nurture those in need. I like Joyce a lot. I’ve wondered about some of the other characters we haven’t heard from in a long time. What’s happened to Hwan, Bikkie and Bag of Snakes? Christopher Baldwin July 8, 2019 at 11:36 am 4 months ago I know! With so many characters it can be months between seeing them. But I’ll get to all of them! 🙂 TB July 8, 2019 at 11:24 pm 4 months ago Hey, it’s cool. I also read “Girl Genius,” which has about fourteen thousand characters. watcher July 9, 2019 at 9:34 am 4 months ago I do too, it takes about 6-8 days to get to a punchline in Girl Genius. Sure it’s artwork is probably one to rival Baldwin’s, but man some of the storylines take months to come to fruition. TB July 9, 2019 at 2:49 pm 4 months ago This is why buying the books for online comics is such a great deal. Much more fun to read when you can just turn a page. Rikard July 8, 2019 at 2:47 am 4 months ago Aaah, the old filosophical chestnut: premeditaded killing, random killing or heat-of-the-moment-killing. And no, no real world examples. Maybe the ship has a “filosophistry bot” for her to debate with? (And then she becomes frustrated with it and turns it into a bar-bot – que joke abouit “Metamorphosis”…) Gregg Eshelman July 10, 2019 at 2:54 am 4 months ago Philosophical, not Filosophical. But then why are there Filbert nuts instead of Philbert nuts? Owen Smith July 8, 2019 at 9:32 am 4 months ago The word “mom” just doesn’t work in that way for me, it has such heavy US overtones. A “mom” has a thick US accent and forces you to take out the garbage (another US word) and play soccer (we don’t call it that). My mum or mother does entirely different things. Owen Smith July 8, 2019 at 9:34 am 4 months ago Also in the UK people don’t say “I’m a mum” as if it defines their very being, whereas being “a mom” in the US seems to do that just that for many people. It’s a big cultural difference. Jude July 9, 2019 at 4:37 am 4 months ago I’m in Canada and despite what many people think about Canadians, I identify with the UK much MUCH more than the States but we say mom here too. I think it’s because mom is the older child’s version of mommy whereas mummy means a mummified body so no one writes mum. I never say I’m a mom but will say I’m a mother. I wrote “still a mom” in response to Joyce’s final comment. Dr D July 8, 2019 at 12:16 pm 4 months ago Next book?!? Yes please Efogoto July 8, 2019 at 12:53 pm 4 months ago “Next book” singular? Could it contain • Book 4: Darkhuenium Pandemonium • Book 5: The Heltch Egg • Book 6: The Auglish Gounder Fingers, toes, and eyes crossed! Christopher Baldwin July 8, 2019 at 1:06 pm 4 months ago YES YES YES! BIG book. 🙂 Efogoto July 8, 2019 at 1:20 pm 4 months ago HUGE book, in so many ways!!! Kevin Moore July 8, 2019 at 1:14 pm 4 months ago Regardless of what kind of killing I engage in, I make sure to eat a hearty breakfast first. Herb July 8, 2019 at 2:00 pm 4 months ago And then, on to the Bikkie solo-adventure book. Muzhik July 8, 2019 at 8:36 pm 4 months ago Make sure the hearty breakfast is a lot of steak and eggs. That’s what they fed the astronauts not just because it’s delicious, but because it’s high in protein AND low in fiber, meaning that much less “waste” to deal with in your suit as you’re getting ready to step on the moon for the first time. Peter Rogan July 8, 2019 at 9:16 pm 4 months ago Relax, Devyat. The chances that the second Kreebrick is in another inhabited system with three races conducting genocidal war against each other, in which you haplessly intervene resulting in the death of billions is, uh….. pretty small. Right, Chris?? TB July 8, 2019 at 11:26 pm 4 months ago Not sure how many Kreebricks there are. Still trying to figure out how a universe-eating creature manages to evolve inside a universe. Gregg Eshelman July 10, 2019 at 2:58 am 4 months ago They get implanted in universes by an inter-universal creature-thing that’s like a parasitoid wasp.
