Layla, you should get your ears check.  I'm pretty sure you should have heard the racket the second that door opened.

Sorry this one;s late again. I was already half asleep when I started editing this page, and... well, just LOOK at the second panel. That's the kind of scene that'd be veeeeery easy to screw up if you try to put it together without a clear head.

And speaking of that panel, have fun identifying all the shout outs!

Finally, we have another new Voting Incentive that you should probably read even if you don't care about unused plot arcs. This one involves retcons and a plot hole I know some of you have already asked about. So, you know, important stuff.

EDIT: ...aaaaand of course, that's when Photobucket decides to have technical difficulties. Sorry gang, I have no idea how long this "maintenance" will take, so just keep checking.

EDIT EDIT: Okay, looks like Photobucket's up and running now! Vote away!

Aaaaaaaaaaand the shady gun dealers are basically a gun-themed convention.

You know, I REALLY should have seen that coming, but somehow did not. Well played.

Yeah, even if I hadn't planned to make this a bit, futuristic convention Dealer's Room, it would have ended up looking like one anyway :)

Are kill-o-zaps from Hitch-hikers guide?

@ Blitzkrieg: On Pattie:

Is part of her new personality (which you did say was only in your head) have her give an excuse for how she acted at the start of the comic? Because one possibility is that it's an attempt to have Layla mature. Another is related to the fact that Layla's obviously a bad daughter to her mother (though she was a better daughter to her father).

@Matthew YAY! Somebody got that one!

@DD: It will, but keep in mind that I'm also changing the details of what actually happened in those early pages. Tuesday's voting incentive will give a full description of what "really" happened, and how it relates to the rest of the comic (just in case they're referenced in the comic before I get the "fixed" book out)

This flung together space station must have remarkably good sound proofing to not hear all of this in the next room.
And Disonar's too busy to notice that he was meant to turn a corner there :P

"Do Not Carry" box amuses me.

Let's see if I can identify some shout outs... I'll stick with text.
Mega Buster and sub tanks are obviously Mega Man, Tricobalt Device and Varon-T Disrupters are Star Trek, Squareness Guns I assume is Jack's digital gun from Doctor Who (I could be wrong, but it did make a square), Thermal Detinators are most likely Star Wars (something I know from playing the games, rather than anything else :P), although really all that means is that it's set off by heat.
Matthew has already mentioned that kill-o-zaps are from the Guide. (although that is one I'd have had to look up to know... Probably means it's about time I reread that series)

Neva is of course from the fake pop culture existing in this comic :P

I am interested in Tuesday's incentive.
I want to see what's potentially been changed.

I am kind of glad you chose to not have a looming big bad character, that seems a little 'wrong' for Far Out There (but then I've seen stuff with a similar feeling pull that off, so who knows...)
