Originally the dialogue in the last two panels was much longer and went into much more detail about bad episodes of “Star Trek: Voyager.” For the record, my least favorite episodes are actually the ones from later in the series where Janeway had a holographic Irish boyfriend, a character my friend Jaye referred to as “Janeway’s Holodeck vibrator.” My favorite episode is the one where the Doctor gets stuck on this planet where time moves differently and becomes an opera singer.
I will now open the comments to further discussion on this crucial topic.
Man, “transformation” doesn’t fit comfortably into that balloon at all. Long words are a pain in the butt sometimes.
Speaking of discomfort, this has got to be a weird situation for Dave. It’s really strange when someone you find attractive starts turning into you, unless you’ve been married for a few years, in which case it’s probably inevitable.
Ha, “old Battlestar Galactica“! “Tapes”! Truly it was a different and primitive era.
As overly wordy as this is, I still like this strip. Mainly because I watch a lot of bad sci-fi movies. Why do genetic accidents always turn folks evil?
Dave’s smoke is getting kinda fancy, too. I was getting bored drawing cigarette smoke all the time.
That’s a great Charlie Brown sob in the last panel. If I were drawing it today, I wouldn’t do a thing differently. Also, it’s great that Mell says “yoinks.”
Obviously, these strips are based on David Cronenberg’s remake of “The Fly,” where Jeff Goldblum records himself turning into a fly-man. I always liked that part of the movie. He’s so nerdily stoic about the whole thing, even when he starts vomiting on his food to digest it. Oh, David Cronenberg. Never stop being messed up.
That’s another “Caution: Gerbils” crate in the background. Obviously the lab requires crateloads of gerbils.
This strip is based on college.
