    Methinks Jerry carefully laid out plans have gone from being all wet to being flushed down the toilet with the rest of the #*IT.

      Only thing I know for sure–Jerry has no idea one way or the other. Finally.

        Seeing Star Maiden heading back to her old kingdom with obvious thoughts of revenge suddenly has me thinking of the lyrics (Name That Tune…)

        I’m a bitch, I’m a bitch
        Oh the bitch is back
        Stone cold sober as a matter of fact
        I can bitch, I can bitch
        `Cause I’m better than you
        It’s the way that I move
        The things that I do

        I entertain by picking brains
        Sell my soul by dropping names
        I don’t like those, my God, what’s that
        Oh it’s full of nasty habits when the bitch gets back

    Well, okay, but I hope Marc likes burnt-flavored cookies. :-)

  3. CartoonistWill

    Well, there goes the plane :-)

    Bye Star. It was nice having you around. Say hi to your dad.

  5. Bryan

    …and there goes Jerry’s plan.

    Fortunately, despite all the other damage, the electricity still worked and the television wasn’t busted.
    And who stays at a hotel called Castle Anthrax? Wait, this is Vegas. Question withdrawn.

      Haha. That made me laugh. nice.

    At last check, Earth was surrounded. Star Maiden might not find her journey home all that easy, and I doubt the robot is down for the count either. Even when she gets home, I have a feeling her father will be prepared for her this time…

      One would think some sort of contingency plan is set up. But you’re right… dad ain’t exactly home right now. It’s been a while since we’ve seen the multitude of aliens heading for Earth. I wonder where they are…

    There’s a Star Maiden dashing in the sky.
    She’d like to come and kill us
    and she knows she’d blow our minds…

    I’m not liking mean Star Maiden.

      Don’t like strong women, Greg?

      • Greg Bulmash

        Strong’s okay. Spy Gal is supposed to be plenty strong. Mean, however, isn’t.

    I miss crazy star maiden too.

    • Brock Heasley

      But she just left! Nah, I’m with ya. Crazy Star is so much fun.

  11. Javier

    As much as I miss crazy Maiden, this one really is throwing the monkey wrench around. As in wrench in a blender and exploding glass everywhere. Man, the robot may not be down for the count but took a terrible hit! Jerry must be doing more than sweating!

    My only gripe with the artwork is the second panel with Maiden’s face. Her lip looks like a bloated tongue. I almost thought she savoring choking Swifty before I realized it was her lip. Other than that the artwork is sweet! Good stuff with her flying through the Donut-bot.

    • Brock Heasley

      Jerry is sweating–and for more reasons than one! Remember: he’s on top of that thing. Bad place to be when it’s been hit.

  12. drew

    It looks like business it about to pick up! With star maiden back to her old ways…and obviously able to remember what transpired at valhalla…i think our Mr. Jerry is going to have to answer for a lot of things and soon.

    • Brock Heasley

      I dunno, Star Maiden is pretty far away now…

    To quote my man Tony Shalhoub: “Wow. That was a helluva thing.”

    I was hoping for a bit more of a fight, BUT it was pretty neat seeing her 1-shot the robot as a free action passing through. HAH… passing through….

    So either the robot ISN’T down for the count, it’ll pull itself back together with a hyperactive self repair/restore system, or there’s a contingency bomb installed in the robot in the event is suffers terminal damage to either destroy any evidence connecting it back to Jerry or make one last ditch effort at exterminating our heroes.

    You won’t have to wait long to find out what happens with the robot. Only 11 strips left in this chapter!

    • Tyler

      This chapter has gone by very fast, more so than any other of comparable length. This is the longest chapter so far, right? It really doesn’t feel like it. So much has happened.

      • Brock Heasley

        I’m really glad to hear you say that, Tyler. Yeah, this chapter is a good 15 strips longer than any other chapter already, and there’s still more to go. I’m telling the story very differently with Marc drawing two strips a week and the pacing should feel different. Also, bonus, this chapter brings a lot of the story to a head, so that’s part of why it feels like a lot is happening. A lot IS happening. I hope to keep it up going forward, but we’ll see.

  15. Bryan

    Am I the only one possibly thinking that part of Jerry’s plan was to show Swifty just how much of his life has been a waste (by having Star do it for him)?

    • CartoonistWill

      Wow, that evil, evil vindictive Jerry….. lol
