Sometimes you realize that it’s best to get a large back-supply of the kind of chips you like because you’re about to go on a large journey. And there, of course, are several ways to go about that.
It’s what *I* would do if I had a spaceship with a huge crane on it that could grab trucks full of cheesy jalapeno snacks off the highways.
I… may have ordered a 64-count case of cheddar jalapeno Cheetos from Amazon… a few times…
I haven’t been thinking big enough.
I hope they opened it up and came to the disappointing realization that the picture on the side doesn’t usually match the contents.
As soon as I read the side of the semi, I knew it was doomed.
I hate them. SO much!!
Considering how many houses (and likely people) these guys have crushed at this point, doesn’t that technically count as violating GOB rules regarding dark planets.
So if any of these jerks survive the book, I guess they could put them on trial.
Eebs incinerated entire planets and I dislike them less than these puppies.
Yes, at least the insane Eebs had some justification when seen from their point of view.
Me too! The Eebs were just the natural result of giving abused toddlers unlimited power. They had to go, but they weren’t as sheerly awful as these guys.
And I want to join themmmm….. ????
The puppies. My reply was so quickly displaced!
Seriously, you draw those houses with so much detail, so we will feel more discomfort when they get destroyed 🙂
This reminds me a silly little video from years ago called “Godzilla vs Bambi”. Something like sixty seconds of rolling credits with the sounds of nature in the background, and a cute little fawn browsing some undergrowth. As soon as the last credit scrolls off the screen, WHAM! Godzilla’s foot comes down and crushes Bambi. The End.
I’ve seen that!
Have you seen the sequel? Bambi returns with a machine gun.
No, I have not. I’ll have to check it out. Thanks!
First aired on HBO in the late 70’s as a “short”.. I still chuckle when I remember it.
So, is this the last Kickstarter Childhood House to be crushed? I know there were 7, and that sounds about right without going back and counting (which I may do anyway).
It is the last of the Kickstarter houses to be crushed! Any future house crushing (if there are any) will be of my own inspiration and joy. 🙂
How do these guys land on a planet without houses?
They find a herd of cute, rainbow-farting unicorns and land smack on top of them!
Aw man, I just saw the truck driver.
@DSL, once you read tomorrow’s strip, you’ll realize it was an act of kindness.
I’m not sure ‘kindness’ is the right word, but it’s definitely better than the alternative.
@The_Shadow, good clarification. 🙂
Is it Abby Howard in the first panel? The ressemblance is uncanny.
I love the way this is the only house for miles and the ship STILL lands on it. I didn’t know there was a Childhood House Kickstarter thing! That is so cool!
@TB… houses are softer than Hard Ground. It’s like a landing platform.
Thank you for the Kickstarter House opportunity. The kids & I are still geeking out about seeing their grandparents’ old house. You CRUSHED IT!
@Daltari_D, it was my pleasure. Ha! How delightful to hear how much it was enjoyed! 🙂
Call me old-fashioned. Call me intolerant and insensitive to alien appetites and mores, but if you crush houses to land your ship and steal potato chips by the shaken truck full, you’re going to find yourself at the receiving end of a hot photon torpedo. And that’s WITHOUT cheese!
Contents may settle during shaking.
I like the contrast of the puppy love looks and callous disregard for other species. They deliberately crush those houses and everyone in them. No doubt not much can touch them should the locals get aroused like hornets and swarm to attack. They probably have no fear of nukes either.
Little buggers I’d like to see how many of those big eyes I could splatter before they would kill me.
Oh and Emily really needs to send a message to the GOB too if she hasn’t already.
I really don’t like them one bit.
