At least she didn’t murder anyone. Nogg got off lucky. Coyoty August 29, 2019 at 12:21 am 3 weeks ago Gounder. Named after the giant space harpoon he used to take over his crime territory. PeterK August 29, 2019 at 12:19 am 3 weeks ago I like this ending. Great work, Sir. Coyoty August 29, 2019 at 12:23 am 3 weeks ago Evil overlords have a high attrition rate, due to evil underlords. Night-Gaunt49 August 29, 2019 at 12:38 am 3 weeks ago What a pleasant ending. Nice to see how Yuri spends her time. Efogoto August 29, 2019 at 12:50 am 3 weeks ago Hearing the siren song of a tempting opportunity can be hard to resist. Perhaps the Furryite ability that quells Eeb telekinesis works on human desire to heed siren songs as well. It’s either that, or Yuri is really into dominoes. Leinglo August 29, 2019 at 1:42 am 3 weeks ago “The Next Full Spacetrawler Adventure?” Is Nog going to rope another batch of Earthlings into a galactic crisis? DrunkenNordmann August 29, 2019 at 2:24 am 3 weeks ago Would it be Spacetrawler without Nogg kidnapping a bunch of Earthlings and screwing up their lives? Keith August 30, 2019 at 8:27 am 3 weeks ago The best thing would be Nogg getting roped in by a bunch of those poorly evolved humans. Even more clueless and insensitive than he is and just slightly more competent. Jude August 29, 2019 at 2:15 am 3 weeks ago Good grief, Christopher! Don’t you take any breaks between comics? Where do you get all your energy and motivation from? And are you even human and not an alien from the galactic system you seem to gave such an intimate knowledge of? Are you our new overlord too? I *very* much enjoyed these last two Spacetrawler adventures and looking eagerly forward to adventure 3!!! Thank you for such grand entertainment, especially since I dislike watching TV and ovies and refer reading. caribouchat August 29, 2019 at 3:31 am 3 weeks ago Happy Yuri! I’m glad! Congrats, Christopher, and thanks, I love my almost daily spacetrawler page, laughing is a great way to begin the day. I’m so happy to know there will be more spacetrawler adventures, your characters are so endearing, I look forward to seeing more of them… Yang_Tomoe August 29, 2019 at 5:11 am 3 weeks ago Well Done Pax August 29, 2019 at 6:25 am 3 weeks ago First time comment, I stumbled upon the comic sometime in the middle of this second run, read up from the beginning, and have been following along ever since. I just want to thank you for all the work and creatively you’ve poured into this fine comic the years. I’ll be sure to stick around through the next phase. But I actually posted to comment on that very last panel. Purple robo feet! Jude August 30, 2019 at 12:28 am 3 weeks ago Perfect purple robo feet to match perfect purple robo hands. Just because Yuri lives away from people doesn’t mean she has to sacrifice style! FlySwatter August 29, 2019 at 7:01 am 3 weeks ago The last panel is uncharacteristically uplifting, making an extremely welcome and satisfying close to this story thread. Thanks Chris. Julia August 29, 2019 at 9:22 am 3 weeks ago I love how you show Brian’s emotions with just their hands and arms. Sean K. August 29, 2019 at 9:34 pm 3 weeks ago Yeah, I love that, too, and it reminds me of a lot of body language of Ted in Little Dee. Rikard August 29, 2019 at 10:37 am 3 weeks ago If Yuri ain’t happy, ain’t no-one happy, yes? Well done, mr Artist! Your comics are what others aspire to be, in my opinion. Tight Schedule, well written, drama, emotion, tension, humour, action and all with thematically appealing pacing. If one were to speculate about the next outing, I somehow got the bizarre idea that Dustin of all people steals a ship on Earth and kidnaps a bunch of thelbuians to topple the UN, or something equally … hm, one shouldn’t use ‘retarded’ as a pejoratice… “alternatively sapient”, yes, that will do I think. Anyhow, more Spacetrawler is the best Spacetrawler (excepting the actual drivesystem, that is). Peter Rogan August 29, 2019 at 2:29 pm 3 weeks ago Oh, great. As soon as Yuri said it, I could picture her taking over Gounder’s foundering empire, giving it focus and a new vigor as she explores new means to extract protection money and punish evildoers who think she’s either like them or a pushover, and growing quite fond of the work. A dastardly undoing of all her work, and Martina’s, to keep her safe and away from murder as a profession. That said, it’s been my experience that the best stories don’t shut down their characters and leave them in HappyEverAfterLand. Living characters have lives that go beyond the story, and will and do, even if we’re not watching. The clumsy end to “The Sopranos” thumbed its nose at its audience, mocking this concept. The far better ending is from “The Watchmen” (the graphic novel, not the movie), with the hapless publisher’s assistant at “The New Frontiersman” about to find Rorschach’s mailed journal exposing the false end of the world, and preceded, naturally, by Dr. Manhattan’s reply to Adrian Veidt’s question, “Did I do the right thing, in the end?” To which of course, Dr. Manhattan replies, with a rare smile, that “Nothing ever really ends,” and melts to a new universe. And there you go. Lemonade and dominoes are a fine way to signal this story is over, and the characters we have met and come to know go on, even if we’re without their other stories. For now. Nothing ever really ends. David August 29, 2019 at 7:06 pm 3 weeks ago Spacetrawler! Also known as: “The Story of Mister Zorilla and His Bizarrely Suicidal Kids” Muzhik August 29, 2019 at 8:50 pm 3 weeks ago “Spacetrawler III: Welcome to Dustinia!” Marc Vader August 30, 2019 at 2:11 am 3 weeks ago My thoughts exactly! 🙂 Night-Gaunt49 August 29, 2019 at 10:58 pm 3 weeks ago Space Trawler 3: Awakening on planet Earth. (Chula Varuna – the Stars are Right) Coyoty August 30, 2019 at 12:21 am 3 weeks ago Spacetrawler 3: Darkness’ End. I want to see how Earth reacts when it’s no longer dark and discovers there’s not only a galactic confederation, but Earth is already a major delegate and financial force. And Dustin was once its misrepresentative. DrunkenNordmann August 30, 2019 at 12:55 am 3 weeks ago They’re probably gonna send flowers and am apology for inflicting Dustin on galactic society. Gregg Eshelman August 31, 2019 at 3:01 am 3 weeks ago Dustin’s twin brother goes to space but everyone thinks he’s Dustin… not a happy vacation. Coyoty August 30, 2019 at 2:47 am 3 weeks ago …And Earth is known as Dustinia… DrunkenNordmann August 30, 2019 at 8:08 am 3 weeks ago It was actually named back to Earth after Dustin was removed from his position. Muzhik August 30, 2019 at 6:00 pm 3 weeks ago OR… Is that just what they WANT you to think?! Richard August 31, 2019 at 7:25 pm 3 weeks ago I like the Hobbit architecture ~ no sharp edges… Christopher Baldwin August 31, 2019 at 8:58 pm 3 weeks ago @Richard, as someone who is tall, I appreciate this sentiment. 🙂 Joe England September 9, 2019 at 8:40 pm 1 week ago Another distinctive, memorable tale!
