WTF, “I’ll go back AGAIN”, Do they think he found something down there and is not sharing. I did like the “volume of complaints” was a nice touch.
He’s found a hidden supply of racism- he’ll be recharging for when they find him again.
LEAVE NO MAN BEHIND. Unless he’s turned large and blue.
That was…rather LATE!
“Goddammit, do I have to save EVERYBODY?”
And then he finds the decapitated Hodges.
“Well fuck. Guess now we’ll start losing the USEFUL people.”
Hodges wasn’t exactly useful, unless his looks meant he really was a stereotypical engineer of some kind! XD
BTW, I see you read “Housepets!” as well. Good comic. Like the avatar. It’s ironic that your avatar depicts a character posing as a hero while you’re talking about saving people. XD
So human. Even if it is the team asshole who is missing in action, if there is the slightest chance that he is still alive and kicking, we have to go back for him…tragic but true.
That guy is bucking for Saint-hood or something.
No wait. Its Leave No One Behind and We Take Care Of Our Own.
Well, he gets a GOLD STAR ! !
Note to mods: You haven’t put up Issue #5 in the sidebar thingy.
Back on topic: I really love these philosopher aliens – the way they talk is cool, and you wouldn’t expect a more or less friendly, sympathetic alien race in this sort of story. Nice work, author(s)!
speaking of which.. why are these philosopher aliens in a(formerly) high security space-prison? loitering? if there is an actual answer, please give it to Esqueleto?
I don’t think they’ve said, although it wouldn’t have to be major. The implication at the beginning is that the prison-keeping race is a group of absolutists. Violation of *any* law is considered a defect of character, and gets you sent up the proverbial creek. They don’t distinguish between petty crimes and major felonies… a crime is a crime, and that’s the end of it. So… loitering, trespassing, etc. are distinct posibilities.
My guess is that the Asparaguys were a’-philosophizin’ without a license…
AND hangin’ out on street-corners wolf-whistlin’ at chicks….
XD LOVE IT!!
poor, poor, blue lumpy(?) bastards.
Ditto to that!
“All right, now who’s missing!?”
Sounds like a Kindergarten field trip gone bad, somehow…..
Or a family vacation
When there only six people in the whole nebula who aren’t predisposed to kill you, you try to keep them with you, even the racist asshole who wouldn’t risk his life for you. At least he would shoot at an alien before he would shoot at you.
Besides, he provides a useful target for hostile aliens. A meat shield, if you will. Without him there’s more chance of someone killing a helpful member of the team, as Asimov suggested.
He’ll find Hodges just fine, even if he has the tendency to make strangely bug-like noises instead of talking…
Plus, he doesn’t whine as much, or say racist stuff…
Hey! – maybe we should throw him in the sewer more often!
(and then someone notices the mandibles behind the face-mask)
It would be a comical twist if the Alien don’t eat him … but instead Sodomize him lmfao
The volume of complains would increase
haha volume… as in loudness and quantity.. oh… delightful
Yeah… wasn’t one of his big complaints the human/alien hybrid races? Wouldn’t that be ironic if he was somehow used for breeding or spawning purposes…
Barefoot, Bald and Pregnant!
[Either way, it shuts 'im up, don' it?]
Found this comic via an ad on TWCL, good reading, enjoying the story and art lots, keep up the good work!
