Probably not. Christopher Baldwin August 19, 2019 at 12:05 am 3 years ago @Umbral_Reaver, Awwwww….. Oh wait! I know what force! Cake! 😉 ronald August 19, 2019 at 7:14 am 3 years ago Well, Mr. Z’s CREATOR could decide to give him some but he seems content with the status quo on that. 😉 Coyoty August 19, 2019 at 12:19 am 3 years ago All children are born with a learning disability. It’s called “parents”. Efogoto August 19, 2019 at 12:25 am 3 years ago You promised a big book, and delivered TWO big books. Good on ya lad! Having bought volumes 1, 2, and 3 already though, I am super happy you printed a separate Darkhuenium Pandemonium, and I am in for that with book 2! I look forward to adding Big Book 3 in a few years. Efogoto August 19, 2019 at 12:28 am 3 years ago Ummm … “after slaughtering countless number of people” strikes me as odd. Shouldn’t that be “after slaughtering A countless number of people” or “after slaughtering countless numberS of people”? Either sounds more normal to me. Could just be a tin ear. ronald August 19, 2019 at 6:12 am 3 years ago “Also, your bizarrely elongated head kind of creeps me out…” ronald August 19, 2019 at 7:28 am 3 years ago “All children are born with a learning disability. It’s called “parents”.” Sure, and it’s one that they pass down to THEIR children once they themselves are parents. Kids always seem to think that they INVENTED human nature so there’s no way their parents could possibly understand it… IMHO Mauricio’s resentment of his father seems just a touch misplaced because it’s not Mr. Z’s fault that he never knew about Mauricio, it’s Mauricio’s mother MS. MONTEROS’s fault. I remember (unless I just imagined) a strip in which Mauricio criticizes Mr. Z for not having used protection when he was with Ms. Monteros. Well, at the risk of being mind-numbingly obvious, Mr. Z clearly wasn’t the ONLY one who didn’t use protection on that occasion. It takes at least two people to have unprotected sex. And Mr. Z is, by at least a few sets of standards, an idiot, what was Ms. Monteros’s excuse? Really, when you think about it (“So don’t think about it.”), Mauricio has much better reason for being angry at his mother than at his father but, of course, his mother’s dead and beyond his anger so his father has to get all of it. TB August 19, 2019 at 12:49 pm 3 years ago A: Anybody making that face in panel 5 isn’t “dead inside.” Maybe other issues. B: As far Mr. Zorilla is concerned, he is an astounding idiot, but he’s an astounding idiot who jumped in front of an armed alien to save his son. More than once, in fact. Laying there with one arm blown off, he tried to convince his son that he was not guilty of the murders Jabby had committed. And keep that all in mind when you recall that until this story, Mr. Zorilla had never known Mauricio, either. M.A. August 19, 2019 at 3:52 pm 3 years ago Just as well. Can you imagine growing up with a father like that? Thracecius August 19, 2019 at 2:18 pm 3 years ago I’m with ronald and TB on this one, Mauricio is not responding reasonably, despite what he’s been through. Do I blame him for it though? Nope, that’s human nature and to be expected. 🙂 Peter Rogan August 19, 2019 at 3:07 pm 3 years ago After reading Sr. Zorilla’s remarks throughout this adventure, I would have to say he and his previously unknown son Mauricio share at least one trait: They’re both dead inside. Sr. Zorilla, from the neck up, obviously. Obviously Martina had a far more capable mother. And the advantage of never having met dear old Dad. Yeeesh! Efogoto August 20, 2019 at 12:39 pm 3 years ago I’m not sure why you think Martina never met dear old dad. Nogg kidnapped her from the house he lives in now. Meran August 21, 2019 at 3:01 am 3 years ago TBH, Mauricio is ~mostly dead, as in, most of his body has been changed to Jabby’s requirements. I admit I don’t care much for Mr Z. I kinda liked him at first… but this second book has shown a different side of him. And Efogoto has THREE volumes of the Spacetrawler books?? But there are only two in the Kickstarter? Will I be missing one after all? Christopher John Baldwin August 21, 2019 at 10:55 am 3 years ago @Meran, the original series was printed as three books. This larger book (both in pages and proportion) includes all three. salamurai August 24, 2019 at 11:53 am 3 years ago oh good. stuff happened to me in 2011 & 2012 and I didn’t get around to buying books 2 & 3 of the original series (which I think were $20 a pop). Now i just have to reserve $60 in my budget and get both series in print! Myk Streja September 14, 2019 at 9:05 am 3 years ago Like all children who have ever existed, they all seem to forget that their parents grew up too, and there is nothing those children are going through that is unique and special to them only.
