MAN that first panel gave me a hard time. I guess it turned out alright, but I can still complain about a lot. In my head, Araknil Station looks like some kind of combination of a trailer park and Kowloon Walled City. The idea beaning that the "actual" station is just the core, while all the people live in a make-shift shell of smaller units welded together. As it turned out, though... I dunno, it looks more like the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark than I'd intended. Oh well, it still looks really dark and grimy, and that's what really matters.

Also, just in case you missed it last week, you should totally go back and read the theorizing in the comments about the Ichabod/Avatar timeline. I'm still very proud of the level of geekery we achieved.

And speaking of Avatar, New Voting Incentive is... weird. Very weird

I'm with Ichabod here.
It's kinda impressive that nobody has vacuumed the place out unintentionally.

In sci-fi I do like the whole "cobbled together space community" thing. There are times when it's done really well, and it often implies a lot of history.
They also generally involve a lot of scavenging and a very loose governing body, both things that can help make great stories.

Concerning Kowloon Walled City: Pity they demolished it. It looks pretty cool.

I'd comment on the stuff on the community board, but I'm still trying to figure out where they'd get squirrels.

Avatar looks almost as confused as I feel.

It's Aquatibod in Way Down There: The Webcomic Where Things Happen, Underwater!

@ Incentive: *Attempts to sing* Under the sea... actually, that's all I remember of that song.

@ Comic: Avatar, if this is any indication, he's impressed by things that, by normal operating procedures, should break but don't.

Theorizing Comments: My mind works in weird ways. That decision came to mind in a few seconds, and I found the comic pages quickly enough.

SS: I actually think a lot of this future society operates like this. Space is BIG, after all. Strong governments are hard to set up and even harder to enforce, so most pockets of civilization work on very Wild West rules.

Stone: I'm trying to come up with additional fish-puns for the other characters, but it's a lot harder than it seems.

DD: That, and he's fascinated by things that come into existence without any guiding oversight. Nitpickers are all about ironing out flaws and getting things to function "properly", which ironically makes Ichabod really interested in anything that wasn't meticulously planned but thrives regardless.

Reynard: ANY Avatar is cute Avatar! :D

Hey, those are the same graffiti marks from the Candied Brains vending machine:

P.S. I found a way to link to particular comic pages without the title being included in the link!
