Good ol’ Bikkie. 100% reliable.

Just modify a clamper to block speech instead of telepathy.” “You couldn’t have mentioned that earlier, Red?” C.B.VINCENT GOUDREAULT May 21, 2020 at 2:56 am 2 years ago There is also Stangor’s ship. I am sure she did not get to Laptrack on foot. Meran May 21, 2020 at 6:39 am 2 years ago Those EYES in the peanut gallery = priceless. You can tell Emily knows ~exactly what’s going on, who to separate from whom. And yes, if I’d had the chance, I’d have proclaimed “DUSTY!” KnicholasG May 22, 2020 at 9:09 am 2 years ago It speaks to how accustomed we’ve become to Bikkie that we no longer even react at his trademark cry of BLOOD!! FlySwatter May 21, 2020 at 6:58 am 2 years ago To the uniformed, this does not speak well of Australians in general. Tim McCormack May 21, 2020 at 7:39 am 2 years ago Same for those out of uniform. FlySwatter May 22, 2020 at 7:30 am 2 years ago Oops. I kind of like it with the typo, in retrospect. DrunkenNordmann May 21, 2020 at 7:55 am 2 years ago Imagine Earth finally entering the galactic community and Australians finding out that their whole country’s first impression has been made by a bloody moron. DSL May 21, 2020 at 11:13 am 2 years ago I imagine they’ve already encountered that on a smaller scale with people who think all Australians are Crocodile Dundee. Wingsofwrath May 22, 2020 at 9:31 am 2 years ago Of course not. We all know they’re all Steve Irwin. XD Mic May 24, 2020 at 12:23 am 2 years ago As opposed to meeting our Prime Minister…who is a bloody moron. Havlock May 25, 2020 at 3:48 am 2 years ago And the sad part is that he is probably the best of the last 5 other morons we’ve had, in the space of less than half a decade. Christopher Baldwin May 25, 2020 at 11:44 am 2 years ago @Mic, @Havlock, please let’s keep this from getting political. The Saprophyte May 21, 2020 at 8:57 am 2 years ago I’m sure it’s been observed before but Bikkie really missed his calling as a Red Cross Spokesman. Steel Raven May 21, 2020 at 9:07 am 2 years ago BLOOD! Laura Bauer May 21, 2020 at 9:24 am 2 years ago Their expressions in Panel 5. Gold. PeterK May 21, 2020 at 11:34 am 2 years ago Yes. 100%. Bikkie > Dusty Thracecius May 21, 2020 at 12:10 pm 2 years ago Maybe it’s just me, but the planet on our lovely little super princess reminds me a lot of the logo on the original Lego space figurines. 😀 KQY May 21, 2020 at 2:43 pm 2 years ago Well, Dusty’s brother was great. Or, would have been if Nogg hadn’t snatched the wrong body…. 😛 Pete Rogan May 21, 2020 at 9:42 pm 2 years ago Ahh, introductions. A nice way for everybody to size everybody else up. In this case, Bikkie stands head and shoulders above anybody else with fist clenched and words dripping BLOOD! all over the place. A nice guy to know, if not offended. 0z79 May 22, 2020 at 12:18 am 2 years ago The comment I made earlier is gone; was it removed because it’s inappropriate, for some reason? Christopher Baldwin May 22, 2020 at 12:38 am 2 years ago @0z79, I didn’t delete any in the last few days. And I don’t see one from earlier. Do you mean the one yesterday about Timmy on South Park? It seems to still be there. ? :-/ Night-Gaunt49 May 22, 2020 at 1:05 am 2 years ago Computers are strange, they are made mostly by humans. Bikkie is easy to understand. Nova May 22, 2020 at 8:15 pm 2 years ago Speaking of the first Spacetrawler series, seeing Emily all burned and hairless is giving me some mild flashbacks to… well, for anyone who hasn’t read it, I won’t spoil it, but Chris will know.
