6th Jan 2019, 12:00 PM
Sorry for the back-to-back Chesterton quotes, but I needed to make sure that if Mike Nelson ever finds this comic he'll read past the first page.

Anyway, I find the first quote especially fitting. Because as much as I feel I've improved since I started posting comics online in 2013, and as proud as I was of the first pages of this comic as I was drawing them... it's three months later and I'm kind of underwhelmed. I have little hope of fame, fortune, or excellence... but I'm doing what I love and I hope it brings a smile to someone's face.

[Also, I want to thank everyone who helped me bring this comic into existence. My brother Joe deserves half the credit for the concept, which we were bouncing around (if I remember correctly) as early as 2008. My husband Lewis has put up with so much nonsense from me, it's unreal. My good friend Taily (of Awkward Paws fame) has given input on everything from high-level scripting down to minute artistic details. These, along with others including Proxy170 (Project Arc) have reviewed the script and given invaluable feedback. Thank you all so much! <3]

I just saw this in the Featured section. I saw the movie this is based on on MST3K back in 2003. Loved it! Can't wait to dig in to this!

I watched space mutiny in preparation for this. (Thank you for introducing me to such a charming, cheesy movie XD) I love your take on the characters, feel like the movie had a lot of untapped potential too, super excited to read!

Oh my goodness, I feel so honored that you would watch it!! I'm glad you enjoyed it, too. I subjected some friends to it who did not find it quite so charming. And thank you!! I'll be interested in your thoughts on my version as it proceeds. :3

Because I am SMRT, it has just occurred to me that not only is this a totally rad 80s triangle, but it is also a "rewind" symbol. You know, like, turning back. Tubular.
