Christopher Baldwin August 14, 2019 at 12:54 am 2 weeks ago @Coyoty, Just because my memory is not always the best, did I write that somewhere? Or are you just joking. Ardis Meade August 14, 2019 at 12:01 pm 2 weeks ago That sounds like a Team Fortress 2 reference, but I’m not sure. Muzhik August 14, 2019 at 1:33 pm 2 weeks ago Almost sounds like a Schlock Mercenary reference. Coyoty August 15, 2019 at 12:34 am 2 weeks ago Myggs was a kept man. https://www.baldwinpage.com/spacetrawler/2018/11/06/110618-not-a-tracking-device/ Knicholas August 14, 2019 at 7:20 am 2 weeks ago One is a tentacled space creature with mechanical legs! The other is a psychotic kangaroo with constant blood lust! Together they fight crime! AlInfamous August 14, 2019 at 9:35 am 2 weeks ago Just mark out the word crime. ronald August 14, 2019 at 12:05 pm 2 weeks ago So, before they invented robot legs, would a member of Wezzle’s species have used his front tentacles as legs and his top tentacle as a hand? Would he have traveled by rotating like a pinwheel? Lain flat on the ground, his face in the center, and moved forward by spinning like a top? Any number of possibilities. 😉 Christopher Baldwin August 14, 2019 at 12:22 pm 2 weeks ago He was aquatic. No out-of-liquid walking. Nomi August 14, 2019 at 1:42 pm 2 weeks ago How can he breathe the gaseous atmosphere now that the other lifeforms seem to be breathing? Surgical implants? I was imagining Wezzle’s home world as very low gravity, so they just use those three tentacles to anchor themselves and steer as they drift about. Christopher Baldwin August 14, 2019 at 1:45 pm 2 weeks ago I have not pondered it, but either they have the biological ability to breath in liquid and out, or created a surgery or implanted device to allow it. 3oranges August 15, 2019 at 1:38 am 2 weeks ago Lots of different fish can breathe air through their gills, mouth, or even skin, so long as they stay wet. It’s useful both in cases where they might have to leave the water on occasion, and where water gets too warm or murky to hold oxygen. I would buy Wezzle’s species (did they ever get a name?) as something similar. Rikard August 14, 2019 at 5:19 pm 2 weeks ago Wezzle’s species is aquatic? Huh. I thought they were swingers, what with the tentacles and all. ronald August 14, 2019 at 2:11 pm 2 weeks ago I’m sure that Wezzle’s gender was revealed prior to this but the fact that Bikkie remembered it puts him one up on me. 😉 Peter Rogan August 14, 2019 at 6:27 pm 2 weeks ago Of all unlikely character pairings, this likely is the unlikeliest. Still, for all that, I cannot picture Wezzle not getting into a situation that Bikkie cannot punch their way out of. This could become the basis for an entire comic series on its own. Not that I’m advocating that, mind. Efogoto August 15, 2019 at 2:27 am 2 weeks ago They can have Nogg drum up more crew for them. He has a knack. Meran August 21, 2019 at 2:49 am 5 days ago Wezzle’s anatomy has had me puzzled since the beginning… the two lower arms (or legs), have a definite “90 degrees possibility”, (as drawn), which reveals some sort of supportive internal structure. (Yes, I’m thinking of bone) But I’m sure it’s gotta be more like gristle or cartilage. Or even that stuff they call “cuttle”, the hard calcium thing that is actually ~from cuttlefish. I can’t see him going thru water though! With those “legs”, he still has lost the hoped-for streamlining of his body in water… and that third tentacle/arm is coming out of his head! Could you show us your concept drawings on him? (I know it’s a comic, made up, anything goes… but I need/want a somewhat logical version. Please?) (I’ve only come across the conjoined word Need/Want from the tv show, Defiance. Loved that show!! Anyway, now I want to use that word, whenever I can! ) Christopher John Baldwin August 21, 2019 at 10:56 am 4 days ago @Meran, if the Kickstarter reaches the next stretch goal and I do the Wezzle/Bikkie storyline, I’ll try to include Wezzle without his “legs” device. 🙂 Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
