Obviously, the funnest part of this week of strips was drawing Mell’s crazy hair. I really liked the way she came out in these strips. Dave’s hair is pretty good too.
That’s right: I have nothing constructive to say about this strip except for comments about the characters’ hair. But, again, I really like the hair.
My favorite part of this strip is Dave letting the space pen float away in the second panel. It came out looking very natural. Also, it’s a totally boss space pen, or whatever it’s supposed to be.
Also, the surface of the Moon looks pretty great. I wish I could’ve gotten it looking this good on a consistent basis. Plus, again, Mell’s hair.
I should’ve swapped the order of the Tuesday and Wednesday strips in this week. The story would read better that way. Oh well.
I was careful to use “micro-G” instead of “zero-G” because zero gravity technically doesn’t exist; even in deep space, objects continue to exert a small amount of gravitational force on each other. I was also careful to include a pee joke in this week of strips because peeing is funny.
Argh, that computer font is headache-inducing. I like the way the defense shield satellites came out, though. And, of course, the hair.
Man, I draw pudgy fingers sometimes.
Anyway, this strip is pretty cute even though I had to introduce a running gag about the transmogrification process grossing people out just to give it a punchline. Also, I find Dave in Madblood’s body wearing just a T-shirt strangely attractive. I don’t know what this means, but I’m also very attracted to Toofer in the episode of “30 Rock” where he dresses as Frank, and this might stem from the same impulse.
Hey! It’s Nikola Tesla’s birthday today! Let’s raise a glass to the patron saint of mad science and forget all about my weird sexual hangups!
Dave and Madblood really do have a lot in common. In another life, perhaps, they could have been friends…
And this is the last strip with Mell’s floaty hair. Goodbye, floaty hair!
