Metapost: Armadan comments of the week!

Your COTW in a moment, but first, I need to draw your attention to one of the ads in the sidebar. You perhaps have already noticed the ad for the science fiction romance epic series Flight of the Armada, by Jay Michael Jones. But did you know that Jay Michael Jones was also long-time (like, from the very beginning!) Comics Curmudgeon commenter True Fable? This Kickstarter project aims to cover printing costs and cover art for the first 6 books in the series True Fable’s been working on for a long time. Loaded with unique incentives, the Kickstarter pledge drive ends October 7!

And now, your comment of the week!

“I’d like to note that it’s not explicitly stated that it’s God that Dennis is praying to.” –Doctor Handsome

And your runners up, very funny!

“In fairness to Reeky, being a rat is as punk rock as it gets.” –lorne

We don’t have any choice! We can do this thing, or we can do this other thing!” –AndyL

“I do compliment the depiction of the salesperson. Those crazy-ass, unfocused eyes staring at a point in the distance several feet above Crock’s head. Yes, it is the perfect expression of someone who is dispensing free video games in plain brown wrappers on top of a cardboard box in the middle of the desert. Yeah, and he’s wearing a baseball hat backwards, just for kicks.” –Hogenmogen

Sammy Slade? Is that the best that the Alliterative Name Generator XL4000 can come up with? Time to trade up to the new 5000.” –Midtown

Speed dial? Is this 1997? It is? Okay.” –The Ghost of Jarrod

“Meanwhile, Dawn is silently dying inside as she realizes that she has no idea how to open the milk carton.” –Pozzo

I must thanks to all who put some cash into my tip jar! And we must give thanks to our advertisers:

  • Termination Orders: It should be a routine mission, but it’s an ambush. Now for Dan Morgan, it’s about to end in D.C. on a national stage, in the crosshairs of a killer.

    Congrats to the funny!

    FW – I’ve drawn a pair of 6-pg comics for my little nieces; they involved giant fruit falling from space, a chocolate City Hall building melted by a villain, and a showdown with Venusians on an ice cream sundae comet. And I didn’t need any deus ex machina to tie it together. If I’d tried to run black cloud / good cloud / sudden invention of silver lining past them, I’m sure I’d have gotten their nice try Auntie, now can we do something interesting? look.

    As a comic script, Mopey’s work insults the taste of preschoolers.

    Maybe this was pointed out at the time (I have trouble following the comments section these days; so big), but that guy is wearing a helmet, because I guess soldiers also live out in the middle of the desert away from the fort, why not. I doubt the Crock guy is aware of the backwards hat fad yet anyway.

    Flight of the Armada is a Science Fiction Romance series, a lively action/adventure tale of noble alien warriors who set up a temporary outpost on Earth in 1961. Book Zero: Fields of Fire is actually a prologue to the series, when the kingdom world of Thuringa is ecologically destroyed by their longstanding enemy the Shargassi Empire. It chronicles Thuringa’s destruction and events leading up to the scouts going to Earth. The surviving races of Thuringa Airmen and Aquatic take what they can salvage and flee for a faraway planet.
    With few remaining friends among the Stellar Council Worlds and a continuing threat from the Shargassi, King Lycasis Phillipi of Thuringa sends six scouts to set up an outpost on an unknown world partway through the Unexplored Territory. Three of these six are his royal children; one is a royal guard, one is an Aquatic nobleman and one is a brilliant engineer.

    Book One: Flight of the Armada, begins in the Earthian year 1961 when the scouts arrive and slowly and sometimes comically acclimate themselves to rock and roll music, honky tonks, civil rights and the Cold War. From Book 2: on, the story goes back and forth between the Earth and the Armada, where Thuringi society is still trying to get used to being a kingdom of the stars. They want to cling to their traditions as much as possible. They are no longer the most powerful, influential society in the Known Galaxy and that fact is galling and humbling.
    Concerns multiple as the Thuringi try to maintain their way of life. A plot to overthrow the monarchy thickens, new threats emerge and romantic intrigues between the characters abound. Their irrepressible optimism and good humor keeps the stories moving. When tragedy strikes, they must rally to bring back hope and struggle to triumph. Every book starts where the last left off, the chapters running in consecutive order throughout the series.

    With your help, this multi-generational action/adventure romantic epic of rascals and traditionalists can be told. Flight’s Kickstarter pledge period extends until October 7. Every pledge level has some sort of unique inventive that comes with the pledge! If the goal total of $5000 is reached or surpassed, then the funds will be drawn from accounts and dispersed to the author specifically for the stated goals. If the goal is not met, then no money is taken and none is distributed. All or nothing.

    Flight of the Armada is a multi-book saga (25 so far, #26 currently in rough draft) I’ve worked on for well over ten years. Its small Georgia publishing company is excited to have it, but we will only print the first few books of the series for this goal. Fund money will go to printing and for artist’s fees for the book covers, and if we go over our goal, more books can be published. Every dollar goes to publication or to fulfill the incentive promises – e-books or signed print versions, mugs, shirts and other nifty stuff not found anywhere else. Then I will hit the road hawking books and selling it on websites like Comics Curmudgeon and other popular sites. As the series catches on, I may even come to your town!

    So please go to, look for Flight of the Armada think it over and give what you can! And thank you very much!

    TL;DR – I’m Truman Fable and I would like to get you hooked on my books.

    Regarding the proliferation of one-armed people in the comics this year, all of whom pin an empty sleeve to their shirt, I would like to say that, as an 18-year-old working on the family farm, my grandfather tried to clear a jam in the wheat thresher. He lost his right arm to the shoulder.

    But he never pinned his sleeve. He wore a prosthetic hook. Amputees with hooks can steer cars, lift boxes, open doors, and do many other tasks with their prosthetic arm. He was especially good at scaring small children who stared at the hook too long, by slowly clacking the opposable sides of the hook together.

    Seeing him do normal stuff with that hook arm was one of the cool memories of my childhood. Who would pin a sleeve when you could have an awesome and super-useful mechanical prosthetic?

    @KreatureFeatures (#11): You have to have a stump to have a prosthetic arm, hook or Luke Skywalkerish fake hand. So far, all the amputees in the comix have no stump at all. Considering that surgeons are explicitly trained to save as much arm as possible, I’m flabbergasted that we have three people who lost their arms at the shoulder.

    Dennis the Menace: I’d say “Leave the hardline Calvinist theology to me,” but I’m not a Calvinist. At all. This is only funny when you know that I’m supposed to be one. Or not.

    Gots ta admit, I’m way behind on the comics and on reading the commenting this week.

    But, in trying to catch up to today, I gots questions:

    Spiderman is STILL playing dodgeball with that douchebag?

    Rusty is still running or has he been puppetnapped? I think someone mentioned that Sassy Dog made The Great Escape so I presume Mark Trail or someone will start the (LEGENDARY…not…story of The Hunt For Rusty September*)

    Have Hi & Lois started robbing banks yet? Is Thirsty still riding the keg in his back yard and pretending to be Slim Pickens?

    Is Baka still uncomfortable around evil, scary gowns? (Think: Silky Soft, my friend. Silky Soft! That hint was one I gleamed from reading an autobiography: The Snug Life: How Relaxing while Spinning in a Dryer Freed Snuggles the Static Free Teddy Bear Product Mascot From A Crippling Snuggie-Wearing Dependency)

    Is Snuffy Smif running for Higher Office and speechifying about the economy, or is he still napping on the stumps?

    Has Dawn realized Mary set her up with a guy who is just really, really into sponge baths?

    What’s Wilbur’s latest sammich? Has any of his EPIC Tale of The Seven Subaways been told? Will the ghost of Bob Denver play Wilbur? Will the ghost of Bob Denver use Method Acting and commence shadowing Wilbur AND Jarrod from Subway Commercials? Will Jarrod fall of the wagon, killing the lady from the Katzenjammer Kids strip?

    True, I could research these things on my own and Wikipedia-Free Friday doesn’t preclude from reading the comics pages. But, I do value my sanity.

    *annnh! Who am I foolin’? This storyline will probably go on until Thanksgiving and end with a Vegan Dinner. Hmmmm. A Pancurky.

    The Incinerated Spiderman: This is really idiotic, even by superhero cartoon standards. First, Parker is right in the exhaust from that rocket, and he probably has the proportionate ability of a spider to get crisped by fire and poisoned by exhaust gases. Next, even if the hammerhead has a built-in stabilization system, it’s going to pinwheel now that Spiderman has webbed it and changed the system’s center of mass. And with the rough handling that Asi9 would have given the Magic Hammer during his shennanigans, it’s likely that he cracked the fuel grain, which would turn the rocket into a huge firecracker. And–hell, just add “not a rocket engineer” to Stan Lee and Larry Lieber’s list of credentials.

    FU, W: Okay, let’s stick with the metaphor. “The road to hell is paved with good intentions.” “GO, LEMMINGS, GO!” “Watch that first step, it’s a killer!” “Hit the road, Batiuk!” “Life in the smirk lane.”

    Pluggers: Or, you could read the instructions. (If I can open those adult-proof caps, anyone can.)

    Shoe: Whoever perpetrated the misquote is lucky that Arthur C. Clarke was an atheist. Otherwise he’d come back from the dead and curse them proper.

    Mock Trail: Fools! Once you surround Sassy, he’ll be able to attack from any direction! How will you defend yourselves then? Your only hope will be if the dog lets Rusty do the thinking for him.

    @tallyHO (#47): I was hoping for a Wizard of Oz scene, with Sassy as Toto and Rusty as Dorothy. It would give Elrod an excuse to introduce some flying monkeys, which I’m pretty sure he hasn’t done yet.


    Jugs Parker: Okay, it kinda makes sense that Bea is being held hostage by the drug farmers, except that it doesn’t make any sense. Evidently she’s been trying to persuade Bubba to let them leave without a fuss. That should make Bubba paranoid, thinking that Bea might have asked the Boobsy Twins to cal the cops.

    Of course Bubba isn’t the brightest bulb. As Poteet mentioned, illegal pot farms are put in isolated places. That way, there’s less risk of being found by casual passers-by. That way, you don’t need to pay for tround-the-clock guards, because there’s not much chance they’ll see anyone to guard against. That way, you don’t have an unexciting story about two morons annoying a woman.

    WIth the way JP stories drag out, they’ll still be here when the pot is ready to harvest. Strapped for labor, Bubba will turn to Avery and Sam and try to put them to work. Sam will announce that his pot farm is much larger and better-organized, and will bring in some of his people to manage the harvest. After Bubba sells the farm to him for an incredibly low price.

    JP — I’m hoping Bea gets out of this okay, since she’s more likeable than Avery or Sam, but re the plot itself, my eyes are rolling. A ten-acre field of pot is a big ferking field, and pot is not that difficult to recognize from the air. Even if the pot field isn’t visible from the road just from looking down at the righ angle, I’d bet there are small planes flying in that area, and it would only take one smart pilot to blow the operation. There are reasons why illegal pot is so often scattered in small plots in remote parts of national forests (poisoning wildlife and wrecking the landscape). It’s because growing a ten-acre pot field next to a road in sunlight (and Avery was shown after he fell as being in the sun, not shade) would be freaking stupid.

    Rex Morgan M.D.: That cab driver is as good as dead. Don’t worry, it’ll happen off-camera while we’re all Nehemiah Scudder is drooling over June’s new burkini. He’ll rot quietly in his 55-gallon drum, forgotten and unmourned, just like all the others who’ve had the bad luck to cross paths with Rex Morgan, M.D.
