Not a particularly exciting strip, although I did go to the trouble to make a little logo for Notari’s Restaurant. It’s sad how seldom I bother to do that kind of thing.
That is the worst flying saucer anyone has ever drawn. People made all kinds of fun of me for it at the time. Which is too bad, because the moon looks friggin’ awesome in that panel.
I don’t know how long Helen’s rocket ship and Madblood’s flying saucer take to get to the moon and back. It took Apollo 11 about four days to reach the moon, but that was in, like, the ’60s. We ought to be able to get to the moon in no time now.
Helen and the computer never get along. I think Helen senses she has a romantic rival.
The plans in the first panel are for Chug-Bot, a gift for Brother Brubaker. I was really into Sam Henderson’s Magic Whistle.
Even though the dialogue once again crowds out the art, I still like this strip. It’s pretty indicative of how things go down in the Narboniverse. Also, I do that thing where I make my own sound effects again. I do, you know.
This strip is a little filler-y, to be honest. I needed it to establish the rules the computer has to follow, but it’s not that interesting beyond that. Also, it was pretty repetitive drawing Dave-as-Madblood talking to the computer all week.
Dave attracts dangerous women. He’s got some kind of weird mojo.
This was one of the early strips I wrote for this storyline. It’s an okay cliffhanger, although the Monday strip would’ve been even better. Knew I should’ve cut that Thursday strip. Oh well.
Dave’s expression in the second panel is good. It’s nice that he retains the power to make cigarettes hover in front of his face even when he’s been transmogrified into Madblood.
