Something horrible needs to happen to that basket of adorables. Coyoty November 21, 2019 at 12:47 am 2 years ago They killed the kitty! You bastards! Muzhik November 21, 2019 at 10:32 pm 2 years ago @Coyoty, they’re dog analogues. What did you expect? (Unless you expected them to be like the demons in the Buffyverse, where they eat kittens.) Meran November 24, 2019 at 5:10 am 2 years ago Hey! All my dogs have always adored cats! And not in a way that makes ~anyone (even the Cat) think “good with ketchup? Or would mustard be best?” Yes, my dogs love mustard and/or ketchup! Meran November 24, 2019 at 5:13 am 2 years ago Are you SURE that’s a cat? It looks almost like the head of a large breed of dog… like a Great Dane. The thing you’re prob imagining as a tail could be an erect ear instead. Coyoty November 21, 2019 at 12:51 am 2 years ago Where’d yesterday’s strip go? Efogoto November 21, 2019 at 2:10 am 2 years ago It’s back about five spots in its appropriate place of the timeline here. War Pig November 21, 2019 at 2:13 am 2 years ago For cute things they are racking up one heck of a body count. Spaceseeker51 November 21, 2019 at 10:08 am 2 years ago No kidding. Aliens all going from crop circles to urban circles. DSL November 21, 2019 at 10:27 am 2 years ago The cute ones are the worst. They’ve grown up learning that being cute gets them what they want. DrunkenNordmann November 22, 2019 at 12:32 am 2 years ago Reminds me of Stellaris where usually the most adorable species tend to be genocidal dickwads. DSL November 22, 2019 at 12:28 pm 2 years ago Oh, I was thinking of humans. Muzhik November 24, 2019 at 12:37 pm 2 years ago Sounds like someone with a long history of a frequently-damaged but still-functioning heart. Hang in there, bro. War Pig November 21, 2019 at 12:06 pm 2 years ago It’s surprising the reserves you have when your life is on the line. One time we had hiked almost 20 miles in full battle rattle. Packs and all. We were dog tired. Then bullets started kicking up dirt around us and we found out we weren’t that tired after all. The next three miles to a defensible position seemed to only take ten minutes. Elpep November 22, 2019 at 3:53 am 2 years ago I am surprised of how much your drawings of the streets of Murcia actually look like the real thing! Kudos, Christopher, great job! Schismatism November 22, 2019 at 7:07 am 2 years ago On the one hand, that poor crushed house. On the other, at least the residents won’t have to worry about their electric car anymore. Schismatism November 22, 2019 at 7:08 am 2 years ago Oh. My mistake, I was looking at the wrong panel. …well, they still won’t have to worry. Robin Bobcat November 22, 2019 at 7:19 am 2 years ago Fun fact: that stitch in your side is often your spleen contracting, dumping spare blood cells into your body to help during your exertions. Muzhik November 22, 2019 at 4:38 pm 2 years ago Doesn’t sound very fun for your spleen. “HURRYHURRYHURRY! I don’t CARE of those cells aren’t finished packing, they need to move out NOW!” Efogoto November 22, 2019 at 5:38 pm 2 years ago The minutemen of your blood system. Night-Gaunt49 November 22, 2019 at 11:43 pm 2 years ago Sounds like she has had surgery. Just because they look like canids means literally nothing. They are aliens and it seems they have no empathy to other species. At least ones that doesn’t frighten them in the least. They act totally removed from their emotions. Like science is with lower animals. Like on the farm, don’t give them names. And if that is their normal form and not just from their research on human psychology they are making use of it none-the-less. Muzhik November 23, 2019 at 12:50 pm 2 years ago I know this is WAAAAY too logical for a comic strip, BUT … I wonder why none of the neighbors in any of these strips (particularly the one above) are calling the police to complain about the noise, to complain about the construction company doing house demolitions at this time of night, to report a large airplane (because, c’mon, a SPACESHIP?) has crashed, crushing the house next door, … ANYTHING! Or maybe the canids (creatures that look like dogs but walk on two legs) have covered the entire city with an SEP field, so no one SEES the spaceship etc. (SEP — courtesy of Douglas Adams — a field that causes people to ignore things like spaceships landing on a cricket pitch because it’s Somebody Else’s Problem … ) Night-Gaunt49 November 24, 2019 at 12:50 am 2 years ago In fact the streets are deserted and quiet. Reminds me of the somni field used in “The Midwich Cuckoos” though the chosen family aren’t bothered by it. So something is keeping things too quite unless something the aliens are doing dampens the activity. Their landing isn’t sadistic. You have to have emotions for that. I say they did it because it was easier to reach the house. And deaths are of no concern to them. Their back up family is still intact so… Bill Johnson November 24, 2019 at 7:39 pm 2 years ago How can you lose someone chasing you when you are carrying a homing beacon? If help can track you, why not the bad guys? Christopher Baldwin November 24, 2019 at 8:34 pm 2 years ago @Bill, that very issue was mentioned in the previous strip. But she has kept the beacon on (while hoping she can stay one step ahead) because she is seeking help to save her parents. Pete Rogan November 24, 2019 at 8:47 pm 2 years ago I must say, for an unsymmetrical chase, this one certainly is a pip. Not sure how it could end but with enough houses smashed, the Spanish Air Force is bound to send a couple of fighters to investigate. Then things could get cumbersome.
