Jess S September 2, 2021 at 11:30 pm 2 years ago The Cuddle Puddle has Cuddle Evaporated with some help. Hopefully it does not precipitate into a disturbing Cuddle Rain Jude September 1, 2021 at 12:44 am 2 years ago That captain will continue finding good news as they’re wiped out even until he’s the last one left and then, he’ll finally decide it’s not. Sociopaths! Efogoto September 1, 2021 at 12:58 am 2 years ago They seem more like sociosuperhighways. Rikard September 1, 2021 at 1:00 am 2 years ago They must have read ‘1984’ as a managerial manual. Col September 1, 2021 at 6:04 am 2 years ago ‘1984’. I am almost thinking they read ‘A Clockwork orange’ high on LCD and Playing Mozart remixed by Squirlex! Glad we did not have a Baby massacre! Would be even better if Second shift is not replaced and written warnings are just issued too them for not turning up to duty! The Shadow September 1, 2021 at 1:18 am 2 years ago How is it possible for each strip to make me hate them MORE?! Bauke September 1, 2021 at 7:29 am 2 years ago The cognitive dissonance with their appearance is hard to overcome sometimes. They are pretty damn vile though. Arcanestomper September 1, 2021 at 2:08 am 2 years ago How is it possible for a species to survive when they don’t take threats that wipe out half their population seriously. I mean not caring about the dead is one thing, but not even investigating what happened or just running away so that the threat doesn’t get you too is blatant suicidal tendencies. You don’t need to care about other people to want to avoid their fate. Antti September 1, 2021 at 2:50 am 2 years ago Lol. Kalkison had almost half of one line, and he’s already a legend. 😉 Coyoty September 1, 2021 at 3:04 am 2 years ago Always look on the bright side of death. vonBoomslang September 1, 2021 at 3:43 am 2 years ago ….I no longer have any sympathy for them. Achoo away, my coyote friend. 8954 Dies A Lot September 1, 2021 at 4:02 am 2 years ago fourth panel one’s -> ones Rob C. September 1, 2021 at 6:34 am 2 years ago Question will he make through before it’s too late. the Social Paths will pick up on this disappearing act. Flyswatter September 1, 2021 at 9:08 am 2 years ago *Very* good news indeed. shoop September 1, 2021 at 9:13 am 2 years ago The extra apostrophe in “one’s” was very confusing. It’s just “ones”. someone September 1, 2021 at 9:26 am 2 years ago The question is how many stribs will remain onboard the ship when the Spacetrawler crew arrive. I’m betting on just these three. Nemo September 1, 2021 at 12:42 pm 2 years ago These four (Captain, Clipboard Guy, Captain’s Left, Captain’s Right (with goggles)). Efogoto September 2, 2021 at 4:30 am 2 years ago The one with goggles is Science! Muzhik September 2, 2021 at 8:42 pm 2 years ago Isn’t the guy with the goggles the one who developed a craving for those cheesy jalapeno chips? Maybe he can be bribed. Prior Semblance September 2, 2021 at 7:30 pm 2 years ago I’m thinking the rest of first shift will be alive but either asleep or very tired. Pete Rogan September 1, 2021 at 5:25 pm 2 years ago Okay, I’m only half as annoyed, now that it seems half the Stribs are left alive and functioning. Aaaaand they seem as callous to their own losses as they are to the deaths they cause others. That would be good news, if they weren’t so fond of overkill when something’s not to their liking. But things are at stalemate. The Stribs still don’t know Ruddock is aboard and responsible for their casualties. And Ruddock still doesn’t know how to run the ship or what it will take to find out what Choan and the Spacetrawler crew (and Zakzar, Khaba and Diller) need to know to stop their evil plan. And the Stribs just made their move. To ignore the loss of half the crew. So now it’s up to Ruddock to figure out what to do next, and to who. Joy. For this, I’m gonna put ice in my glass. Forgot how racked my throat gets when I do Old Grand-dad raw. Demarquis September 1, 2021 at 6:52 pm 2 years ago Well, it’s good news for someone… walterw September 1, 2021 at 10:56 pm 2 years ago oh thank god! i genuinely thought the last strip was showing a big pile of innocent strib BABIES getting annihilated, i just couldn’t get my head around that narrative choice Coyoty September 2, 2021 at 2:30 am 2 years ago If they were Strib babies, there would be humans taking care of them. Night-Gaunt September 2, 2021 at 11:54 pm 2 years ago The Stribs don’t keep babies aboard and possible females. Such callousness I find anti survival to their species. Possibly there are billions maybe trillions of those horrid cute as-a-button creatures. Possibly they made themselves this way to disarm those who are programmed to want to care for big eyed things and they use that reaction to their malevolent advantage. I like that contradistinction and dissonance adds to the plot. Nemo September 3, 2021 at 1:19 pm 2 years ago There are females — Goonth, for example. (Actually, I don’t recall if any of the Stribs was specifically identified as male.) Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
