Hehe, great double size strip! I’m always amazed by your use of color, Jim. Great stuff.
oh man love the color
And Muffin gets the zinger! I like the night color palette although it lacks the happiness of the daytime. How many hours is a day on Planet X anyways?
LOL, Earth is home to all of us, but it’s just pre-chewed food to someone else. It’s all about perspective.
How is that constellation visible from both Earth and Planet X?
Good question Carrer! Planet X is in the vicinity of eight light years away from Earth. The constellations don’t look too different from there. Sort of like if you were standing in front of a group of people and then walked twenty feet away. You can now see the group of people and the spot you were standing in. And some of the people might look like they’re in different positions because you’ve moved!
@ Tom & Darrin: Thanks as always. Coloring is always fun.
@ The Shat: One day on Planet X is equal to 8.034 hours here on Earth. I had to look it up.
@ Thogar: Earth. It’s what’s for dinner.
@ Anthony: Thanks for the ego boost, as always!
Apt explanation — I’ll accept it.
Muffin’s a jerk but, likea LOLcat, how can you get mad at him?
Muffin in for the kill!
thanks for the comment and kind words on Cleo, James. i love this comic!!! it is so beautifully crafted and elegantly written. you definitely have a new fan. 🙂
Thanks for all your comments everyone. And thanks back atcha Mike. I’m really loving Cleo as well!
It just occurred to me that now we know where Planet X is located – we already had distance (8 light years) – and now we have direction – in order for the Sun to appear in Hercules from Planet X, it would have to be 180 degrees opposite Hercules as viewed from Earth. Sadly, it is currently just below the horizon where I am currently located, or I would go outside and wave.
Also, as a first-time commenter – Awesome comic, love it! Great work!
Thank you very much, Henry! Glad you like it!
I was wondering if anybody would follow the clues. Though Planet X is actually just a wee tad more than eight light years away. Very wee. Like an extra point six.
my favorite so far! hilarious
I think this is Sirius.
Hmmm…could be. 🙂
