I love the idea of cute dog aliens…. It is original. Emily does stand out as an earlier drawing. Her wide face makes her look like a Lego character…. You can see how Chris’s skills have refined and improved a lot. DSL December 4, 2019 at 4:39 pm 3 years ago I can never look at Emily’s face without thinking, however infinitesimally briefly: “George Washington!” Meran December 5, 2019 at 3:58 am 3 years ago I’ve been re-reading book 1, and yeah, watching the characters change, since _I’m now aware of it is interesting… the art style, not psychological change! ronald December 4, 2019 at 12:31 am 3 years ago The two guys don’t have names yet, do they? I’m hoping I’d have noticed that. Incidentally, regarding having a talking coyote around (mentioned yesterday), how many here are familiar with “Coyote” by Steve Englehart and Marshall Rogers? 🙂 I suppose that before too long Ruddock will be a SPACE Coyote… Jim Campbell December 4, 2019 at 1:26 am 3 years ago No, but I’m familiar with the character Coyote from Kim Stanley Robinson’s Red, Green, Blue Mars series, and the character Coyote from Tom Siddell’s long running Gunnerkrigg Court webcomic. It seems they’re mostly mischief-makers. Let’s see what this one gets up to… DrunkenNordmann December 4, 2019 at 9:29 am 3 years ago I think that’s because probably all of them are based on a trickster from Native American folklore (if I recall correctly). Meran December 5, 2019 at 4:00 am 3 years ago This is true, BUT. There are many coyote/trickster beings in pretty much all cultures. Foxes, especially Japanese, crows too, and I think the Snake in the Garden was really one as well. Frith Ra December 4, 2019 at 12:44 am 3 years ago I’m voting for naming the two dudes Sven and Ole. Just because. Coyoty December 4, 2019 at 2:06 am 3 years ago They *could* ask the approxiscan. The “guy” from Bhutan is actually a woman. Coyoty December 4, 2019 at 2:29 am 3 years ago I may be mistaken, though. Muzhik December 4, 2019 at 6:17 pm 3 years ago The “guy” from Bhutan is actually a woman. Sooo… Sven and Lena, perhaps? Christopher Baldwin December 5, 2019 at 11:49 am 3 years ago Okay, let’s nip this in the bud. I see where you’re going with you’re thinking, that it is some Shakespearean type plot. But the baseline fact is this: if someone tells you their gender, that is the gender you accept. To say “they are really a woman” is actually very hurtful and harmful. There are plenty of books out there about gender if you wish to learn more, I recently read “The Transgender Child” and it was pretty comprehensive about both trans as well as gender in general and highly recommend it. andreas December 4, 2019 at 6:08 am 3 years ago “They are stealing my parents..” “Sigh. Was there a fish with them by any chance?” Owen Smith December 4, 2019 at 10:07 am 3 years ago She got checked by the Medi-Bot? Oh dear, more cyborgification. Thracecius December 4, 2019 at 12:31 pm 3 years ago I hope there’s a way to restore her parents’ memory, otherwise it’s going to be a long haul toward reuniting her. 🙁 Pete Rogan December 4, 2019 at 4:09 pm 3 years ago No time to ponder, or even ask the approxiscan! It’s off to Aitana’s house to keep the Puppies from wiping her memory from her parents! Will they make it, or be forced to chase them all the way to Durnheim-3?? Tune in tomorrow for the next thrilling episode of—- SPAAAAAAAAAACE trawler! Muzhik December 4, 2019 at 6:23 pm 3 years ago Let’s hope the food synth on that ship has learned to make chocolate. With a human female that appears to be approaching puberty, and especially as she’s recovering from physical trauma, she may need mass quantities of chocolate to keep her energy up. I’m thinking at least two 2lb bags (1.077kg bags) of M&Ms. Make it three bags. She’s earned it. Night-Gaunt49 December 4, 2019 at 11:47 pm 3 years ago Turns out sugar in its purest form is like a poison to them. Give them some gummy bears and they will get a slow death as all of the senses start shutting down then finally their skeletal muscles then their heart muscle. Olgi & Schooplpiukyyuuku. Coyoty December 5, 2019 at 2:33 am 3 years ago Google asks if you mean “School Puku” and shows backpacks with a Nepali puku character on them. Muzhik December 5, 2019 at 7:46 pm 3 years ago Turns out sugar in its purest form is like a poison to them. By “them”, are you referring to human females, or to dogs? I knew about dogs. So maybe that’s how we’ll defeat the canids — get them hooked on chocolate (like that one is hooked on the jalapeno-flavored chips). Think “War of the Worlds” with junk food in the role of microbes in defeating the invaders. Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
