(Jon sez:)

Your Writer: Jon Kilgannon The lesson for prospective mad scientists: Don't build a weapon that is so powerful it will rip open your atmosphere containment dome. This is a bad strategy. Remember this if you're ever trying to take over the Moon. If you do take over the Moon using this advice, I would appreciate being made the Duke of Tycho.

You see, this is something that villains in the movies don't always remember to consider. "And when I press this button, powers beyond your feeble comprehension will be unleashed, Dirk Strongjaw! The focused power of the sun will pour down upon this spot like glowing death!"

Yeah, great, Doctor Villain, but that will destroy your entire evil skull-shaped island. Which you, in your scary black robe and Gucci shoes, just happen to be standing on.

Especially guilty of this: James Bond villains. Yes, that radar-invisible satellite is very clever but it's as fragile as an egg, and forget seeing it with radar - the thing is so big it would be a naked-eye object from the ground by visible light!

P.S. You can make Mark the Duke of Gabe.

Your Artist: Mark Sachs I remember that satellite. When I was twelve and watching "Moonraker" on TV I thought it was the most awesomest thing ever. I was wrong of course (the actual most awesomest thing ever is the Falken in Ace Combat 5) but hey, I was twelve, what do you want?

Oh hey, been meaning to mention this one for a while now. If you're alive and sentient, why not pop over and read the mini-comic Trelawney Thorpe, Spark of the Realm (and her pal Jolly Jack Farr!) in The Crown of the Sleeping King? Written by Phil and Kaja Foglio. I think you'll like it.

Final note: ARGH. For some reason the page template is randomly breaking on random browsers at random times. You may need to scroll down below the comic image in order to page back through the archives. I apologize for this inconvenience. We'll have it fixed, um, soonish.
