Ah, if only I’d invested in a fifty-cent circle template, so I could draw non-wobbly circles. That’s just sad. But I’m happy with the way this installment turned out overall. I mean, fish ships. And Mell’s got a blunderbuss! It may be anachronistic, but I don’t care.
Hey, there’s some decent circles! About time!

The grappling arm was directly inspired by a scene in Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie. I’m not proud of this, but it’s true. Incidentally, that’s one freaky-looking mechanical hand?
