J142 – Alternate Universe Rodeo: Sandstorm

[4/23/2007]

I keep switching between two computers for the updates. This has got to stop…

Anyway, I was at Caltech over the weekend. So I almost didn’t have an update for this week. But today I pulled together and … well, that explains the sketchyness. Once again, I only have a vague idea of where I’m going with this. It’s sort of a parody of those weird M*gaT*kyo interlude thingies. But not. As you can tell, I really only have a vague idea of where I’m going with this.

So, if you’re confused: that thingy that AU D-san is standing on is a hover-barge. It’s a type of steam-powered vehicle that colonists build on some back-water colonial worlds in the sci-fi universe D-san and I share. Propellor-driven, and powered by either steam (cheap, and runs on almost anything) or internal combustion engines (imported), they are the tractor-trailers of colonial planets. They tend to be cobbled together out of whatever the colonists have handy (The one in the comic seems to include part of a steam locomotive).

We’ll see how this pans out. Until next week,

Meet James Ensor
Belgium’s famous painter
Dig him up and shake his hand
Appreciate the man
