We are implementing a new calendar archive so bear with us. Till then, enjoy the new enhanced day by day archive with the pully downy story arch menu and new support for non standard images (expect the April Fools comics to return).

We'll get this worked out yet!

Arthur C Clarke

I'm re-reading The Sentinel tonight. Clarke's insights on Lunar Sausage proved to be prophetic.

New comics Thursday and Friday.

Crabs Are Complicated

Yes, I know.

The crab home world (Mother Rock in my scripts) seems devoid of rock crabs (silicoids in my scripts). The truth is, drawing the little buggers is a chore. Yes, I know...I have added Sid (yes, that's his name) to the roster of regular characters. As a result, I have embarked on a champaign of finding ways to interpose simple objects between Sid and the viewer's perspective. I may also resort to a model sheet of Sid's expressions and gestures and just cut and paste him into the comic. This is also something I am about to do for Minionbot (Minionbot 107 in my scripts). Because the automata in the Vexxverse need to appear symmetrical and proportionally consistent, I don't view use of a cheat sheet as cheating per se.

Which, of course, it is.

One way or the other, I'll depict more crabs and less mutable robots. Thus far, the only character regularly conjured from the clipboard is Carl for obvious reasons.

By the way, anyone notice that the rack of testing server blades from Groom Lake still sits behind Carl on the bridge? There are still little tools on its top as well...
