Your Writer: Jon Kilgannon We're seeing why Benjamin managed to put together a team of mad scientists. He has the gift of gab.

Of course, his team ended up failing, which is why Benjamin knows that the last stand surrounded by enemies isn't what it's cracked up to be.

And finally, reader Mark Eichin sent along this image, a cleaning vehicle in Iceland which looks amusingly like Haas' imagined nature maintenance droid.

Your Artist: Mark Sachs Well, unfortunately it looks like I'll have to keep CGing in those wretched spotlights on Chaucer's carapace for another couple pages at least. Oh well. On a brighter note, I do like that Nature Maintenance Droid. All it needs now is a flamethrower and a couple of Sidewinder missiles (for, uh, "maintaining" nature at a range of up to eleven miles with thrust vectoring and a ninety degree off-boresight capability.)

In other news: yes, we are still working insane hours at my job, so again this Thursday's comic is in question. We should be done with the crunch period after that, though; I sincerely appreciate your patience during this period. In the meantime I'll leave you with these two links. First, Trouvelot Astronomy, remarkable astronomical drawings from the 19th century. And second, No Pink Ponies, which is a webcomic by Remy "Eisu" Mokhtar, another guy I know from back in the day. The Impromanga day. Wow, that takes me back. I'm not sure what to, though.
