I was supposed to be home Tuesday with plenty of time to draw Spacetrawler (and I didn’t bring my laptop, this was uploaded via my phone). Please excuse my rather stuck position (and for not being further ahead).

Another segment of the “Life of Chris”! Wait… this is supposed to be Space trawler. As man, I was in Zion this past week, I could a helped, had I known. David Merkel June 16, 2023 at 2:35 am 4 months ago My sympathies. Even with good maintenance, you can’t avoid all car troubles. Thanks for your drawing and storytelling. Jude June 16, 2023 at 4:00 am 4 months ago Chris, you’ve been amazingly regular without any long hiatus like most webcomic artists have. I had the same situation happen to me years back when I knew little of engines. Oil must’ve leaked out suddenly driving down the highway. You never need to apologize. You don’t go the extra mile in your work but an extra 100 miles! Louise June 16, 2023 at 6:48 am 4 months ago I’m sorry your car broken down so far from civilization! Where’s Choan when you need her?? Hope things are running smoothly soon. TB June 17, 2023 at 5:41 pm 4 months ago Choan did show up. The car still doesn’t work, but it now unfolds into its own car shed. Keith June 16, 2023 at 7:17 am 4 months ago well crapcicles. Steve Boyko June 16, 2023 at 8:53 am 4 months ago Sorry about your car – it happens but it sucks, big time. Flyswatter June 16, 2023 at 8:55 am 4 months ago Sending positive thoughts your way Chris. ZXDunny June 16, 2023 at 9:37 am 4 months ago When I am likely to be alone with my thoughts, I take a portable video game console so I don’t have to be. It’s heavenly. K bine June 16, 2023 at 10:11 am 4 months ago Hey Chris, I’m sorry that your car is broken. Could you post your Patreon or Topatoco or “support an artist” info? It’s been a long time since I bought your artwork. The Little Dee print is framed and hanging where I see it multiple times a day. Christopher Baldwin June 16, 2023 at 10:33 am 4 months ago Patreon! Paypal Donation! Store! And I wish I had a portal for selling artwork. I need to set up an Etsy store or something. I’ve just been sorting through PILES of it. :-/ Flyswatter June 17, 2023 at 8:31 am 4 months ago I’d seriously consider purchasing your artwork Chris. Flyswatter June 17, 2023 at 8:32 am 4 months ago Also… the link for your Amazon wish list no longer works 🙁 Grizzly June 16, 2023 at 10:32 am 4 months ago There are stretches in life where it begins to feel like we are in a Coen brothers story or Wes Anderson epic or even The Odyssey: It is just one durn thing after another. This too shall pass. Kevin June 16, 2023 at 11:50 am 4 months ago Given how productive you usually are, a hiccup in your output ain’t no sin. I am certainly not one to judge, having a cartoon still on my iPad begging me to post it. “You’re not ready.” “Yes, I am! You just don’t believe in me!” “Hey, now, I believe in you. You just…. Need a little more work.” “It’s not fair! I hate you!” (Runs, slams bedroom door, much weeping.)

Pete Rogan June 16, 2023 at 10:40 pm 4 months ago I can sympathize. Long story nipped: I was on my way to the State Police to turn in my publisher for embezzlement when my timing belt broke in the middle of a five-lane highway. I was lucky my car had a so-called ‘non-interference’ engine, where the valves do not intersect the space the cylinders occupy in the next millisecond. I could have been out an engine as well had that happened. But since I was in the process of putting myself out of a job… Dave June 17, 2023 at 3:29 pm 4 months ago You’ve had a full and hard last few years. I’m sorry. You’re a good man. russell June 18, 2023 at 1:53 am 4 months ago If this happened shortly after having the oil changed, probably problem with filter or drain plug. If not, who knows. It’s going to be co$tly. Pete Rogan June 19, 2023 at 10:49 pm 3 months ago Or maybe not. A lost drainplug puts the blame on the repair center, whether dealership or private repair shop. If you can demonstrate that to the judge, you can collect from them the cost of a new engine. It would be their fault. You’d need another mechanic to substantiate what happened, of course. Oz June 18, 2023 at 8:58 am 4 months ago Both of my boys, my father, and my car all broke down in the same week last month. I feel your pain! Glad that you are ok. The Saprophyte June 19, 2023 at 10:35 am 3 months ago Could’ve been worse. Could’ve been bat country. Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
