I’ve never actually noticed this. I’ll have to try it…
This is why you don’t go into tall grass alone!
I never connected flat tongues with dogs before. Huh.
That should totally be a new rule in the Evil Overlord book!
In case the humor of the last few panels wasn’t enough, the context is that the hologram is a representation of the space station’s AI, who would like the woman to stay aboard because he misses her.
Open Mouth, Insert Van.
I didn’t so much laugh at this as gaped at the comic. Not a usual response for me. It was awesome.
“Ahh. That kind of Princess.”
Hehe. I love how angry Cricket looks in the last panel.
The last few comics have been hilarious. I need to learn how to write science-y scenes like this. “I’ve already got one of those!”
I’ve never used a spray bottle on my cat. She does love faucets though.
It’s true. It really isn’t a party until my cat joins in either.
Because everybody respects a big hat, not just jaguerkin.
I’m pretty sure Zoe knows her own name… pretty sure. She also knows “no!”.
How fun would that be to see outside of a convention?
Oh I just about died laughing at in panel 8. If you wondering what inspired this comic, read the blurb at the bottom of the image.
No his cat already has a cat-sized one. He needs a bigger one, right?
Honestly it’s about time someone got that mutation right. This also marks the first time Spinnerette has been featured here. I’ve just started reading it and so far the art is great and the story is rather amusing, as you can see.
A new record! Woo! Lets celebrate by putting out all the fires!
And when life pukes up a hairball on you, you know you’ve done something wrong.
Perhaps not the most glamorous way to save the city but I’d still appreciate her if she saved me from the toy poodle menace.
Zoe didn’t get a cone when she was spayed. I wonder why…
Suddenly I don’t want to be respected by the people of Mechanicsburg. (If you need context, you only have to go back one page.)
This one just made me giggle. Ninja as mice. Awesome.
All he is really missing there is his hat.
I like how she smiles at the end.
The homage to Scooby Doo aside, I love how the geeks are scared out of their mind, but the “normal” girl is actually finding this a lot of fun. Well until the ghost actually catches her. Also author’s note: (For best results, I recommend humming “Yakkety Sax” while reading today’s comic.)
Man, do we have some great nominations this year. The Hugo Award is the leading award for excellence in the field of science fiction and fantasy. The Hugos are awarded each year by the World Science Fiction Society, at the World Science Fiction Convention. Last time I went over the novel, short stories, and relate work nominees. Now let me go over my favorite category:
Best Graphic Story
My personal favorite category, best graphic novel. We have our three regulars once again duking it out.
Girl Genius, Volume 10: Agatha Heterodyne and the Guardian Muse, written by Phil and Kaja Foglio; art by Phil Foglio; colors by Cheyenne Wright (Airship Entertainment)
Schlock Mercenary: Massively Parallel, written and illustrated by Howard Tayler; colors by Howard Tayler and Travis Walton (Hypernode)
I do love these three comics to death. It is sad to admit that I am actually behind on my Fables reading at the time of this writing as I collect the graphic novels. Girl Genius and Schlock Mercenary both present their stories for free on their website before being collected into graphic novels, which makes them far easier to catch up on but no less masterful in terms of storytelling.
On the other side we have two new comers:
- Grandville Mon Amour, by Bryan Talbot (Dark Horse)
- The Unwritten, Volume 2: Inside Man, written by Mike Carey; illustrated by Peter Gross (Vertigo)
I admit to knowing nothing of Grandville Mon Amour although I will likely be picking it up. I have heard and actually own The Unwritten, Volume 2, but have no actually read it yet. I know the story deals with the son of a writer of a successful line of children’s stories that turn out to possible not as make-believe as everyone thinks. I read Volume 1 and was really impressed and have been patiently waiting for more. I’m happy to see it is getting some recognition.
And as always it will be difficult for me to make a decision in this category. Girl Genius has won two years in a row so far but that doesn’t mean it shouldn’t win again. On the other hand the latest storyline of Schlock Mercenary really was mind blogging in that “I can’t believe he pulled that off” kinda of way. Having not read any of the other contestants I shouldn’t speculate too much on their strengths but The Unwritten had some potential I saw, in Volume 1, that might lead it somewhere.
Okay NOBODY is as Rad as a swarm of cancer fighting nanomachines but to be fair, such a swarm isn’t nearly as cute as Hannelore.
An oldie but a goodie. Man I love that quote: “Any sufficiently analyzed magic is indistinguishable from science!”
So that is why they are so tasty!
I sense wacky hijinks about to ensue.
I say don’t wake her up and grab your phone and take pictures!
That served the hoop ride a tourniquet-wise by the cat.
Demo is the smart one! I love Jagerkin.
I KNEW there was a reason why I liked pickles so much!
