Issue 2 page 21

Issue two winding down, and also CAT!
Thanks very much to readers that agreed to do guest comics, I really appreciate it very much. Honestly I need as many as I can get, I'll be sure to write thank you cards.

And the deal is made! I wanted Jack's fake license to have a more mechanical-looking lettering style and look slightly out of place. Any sane person would have downloaded a decent font and made it with Photoshop, however I am a crazy person. That said, I made a mock-up of the license with a typewriter.
Now for something rather embarrassing seeing as how I don't like asking for favors, Issue Two is wrapping up and Issue Three is being drawn but I'd like to at least have it be mostly done when I start posting. So, if anyone would be up for doing a one-off guest comic I'd be very grateful. Anyone?

Jack is a master of subtlety! I rather like the set dressing here, I imagine that Honest Dan's is some kind of pawn or junk shop. The legality of some of the wares might be somewhat dubious.

It would be really helpful for theses two if one of them was "street smart," unfortunately neither of them really are. Bummer.
My weekend was pretty awesome, my drawing buddy Virginia introduced me to her friend Yumi Sakugawa. Yumi makes some beautiful comics and you should totally check her stuff out.

Damn, New Harbin was a huge pain to draw. As a piece of side trivia New Harbin is actually an asteroid with an artificial shell covering its surface. Said shell is made mostly of salvaged materials like derelict spaceship hulls. This will never come up in the story.
Also today is the day of the First Thursday show for Papercutter at Floating World Comics Papercutter is an awesome anthology series put out by Tugboat Press which I would recommend to just about anyone and is now premiering its 16th issue!

Jack get space-flight practice! Alder gets motion sickness! Hooray! Now it's time to figure out where they are and where they're going.

OK, time for a long overdue shoutout. One of the cooler things about Blogger is that I can see what sites people were referred from and even what countries hits are coming from. That said, I get a surprising number of hits from Russia, at one point more than the United States! So anyway, thanks Russia! While I'm at it I should thank Malaysia too because I also get a lot of hits from there. Seriously, all you guys are great!

Regarding the page, I always find it interesting that in a show like Star Trek in a situation like the one Miller is in the appropriate thing to do is press on courageously because warnings from engineering can be safely ignored. Obviously this is not the case here, I guess Miller knows that he doesn't have main character Starfleet captain powers.
