That was a great take on the disbelievers of the moon landing, guys! And kudos for the allusion to 2001, A Space Odyssey. As always, it's a great pleasure to be able to come here and enjoy comics that think as I do.

thanks Shooshie! [Big Grin]

I had an email from someone saying I have the phase of the Earth wrong, but according to my googley research, I think it's close.

It was during the Earth of the Popping Rocks that the aliens came. They wore white. They planted a flag and left. Many Earths later, thy came back. Again and again and again. And then finally they never came back at all. We never understood why they came in the first place, or what they were looking for, though they never failed to take some of our rock and dust with us. They left bits of themselves behind, including their flag. We keep wondering if they'll come to collect their garbage, but they never have and the old ones say they never will. They young ones say they never existed in the first place. Even though they left their junk behind.

Sorry. Couldn't resist. Carry on.

N+S: That's awesome! Cheers for a much needed laugh.

It's a pity I didn't see that until now. [Razz]

Well, I'll just call that a cherry on top of TW!

Maybe what the critic really meant was that given the phase you exhibited, the shadows would have been wrong, or that they wouldn't have needed the lights, or... who knows? It worked for me! Without the familiar view of the earth, people might not have gathered that it was the moon. And without the lights and camera there would have been no joke, so I think it was perfectly drawn. How could it have been any different without losing some important element? It's a comic, not an atlas!

...er... anti-critic rant over. I'm sure the writer meant well, or was just doing what geeks do. Just don't ever mess up a depiction of Boba Fett, or the phase of the Death Star; then you'll get a hailstorm of email critics and Wookieepedia references! [Big Grin]

There is a little thing called artistic license, you know! [Razz]

The best way to sum my views on this come from /.:
