A witty person would slip an entertaining meta-textual quip here.  If I can find one of those people, I'll ask for something.

Well THIS is a momentous occasion: the first page of Far Out There to go up on on SmackJeeves first! I wish this meant the move was complete, but there's still a lot left to do. The site layout here isn't really right yet, most of the images are still being hosted on DrunkDuck, and I don't have a new store set up anyplace yet. Still, progress is being made!

But enough about that, LOOK! New comic! Snarky pop cultural criticism! Another brief appearance by Vengeance! Nifty, huh?

Um... I must confess, I don't really have a lot to say about this one. I'm still trying to get back into the groove of pumping out pages regularly, and just getting this done at all was a bit of a miracle. In fact, I don't even have a new incentive finished as I write this. Well, I'll follow the advice of my ever-insightful readers and just tell you to keep voting. SOMETHING new will be up in the near future. MWAHAHAHA!!!!

Ha ha! Found you!
It looks like I'm the first to comment here. And definitely the first to rate this strip.

I was going to comment on the redundancy of "Inhumane Torture", but there's probably a show out there called "The History of Humane Torture" - which we are spared only because Vengeance wouldn't watch it.

Show nothing. I'm sure there are plenty of governments/armies/Jack Bauers out there who would be happy to explain why THEIR torture methods are totally "humane." A least, more so that the OTHER guy's methods...

Oh Hey!
Here you are! (No, I'm not stalking you...maybe...)

re: The comic

So...um...what do you consider to be "humane" torture?

Blitzkrieg1701, January 18th, 2011, 11:38 pm

I PERSONALLY don't conciser any form less inhumane than others, but I can see how others would try to draw distinctions. For example, I remember a few episodes of 24 that involved sensory deprivation (blocking out all sight and sound). It was purely mental torture, with no physical wounds whatsoever, so that's TOTALLY more humane, right? ...right?

Actually, my question was rhetorical; but I've always figured that the U.S. military got "humane" torture down to a fine art when they allegedly helped to get General Manuel Noriega of Panama to surrender by blasting various types of music and other noise at him when he tried to hole up in the papal nuncio's residence.

I've always thought that would make a great final act to "The History of Totally Hilarious Torture." :D

A Note for Future Readers
Starting as of this page, Far Out There has alt text. Just FYI.
