I mean, seriously, which you YOU rather see: a battle against interdimentional infinidemons, or some kids getting shown around a ship?  I think the answer is obvious.

OOOOOooooooh, this was one big ol' disaster, right here. I'll spare you all the details of all the specific things I had to do and do over and stop doing before they were really done in order to get SOMETHING posted, and instead just explain what started this whole process. I've been doing so much Conventional Wisdom stuff these past few... months, really, that I had a sudden, overwhelming urge to do something flashier than usual for the next Far Out There page. So I did it. I did not allot the necessary TIME to do something flashier than usual, nor did I plan out the exact steps it would require before diving in head first, NOR did I stop to ask if I actually had enough creative energy left after all the Conventional Wisdom-ing going on to do something this detail heavy... which I did not. Thus, we have a page that's an entire day late, and only vaguely resembled the trippy "tunnel through swirly space" effect I was trying to evoke. Actually, this page probably needed a third panel just showing an exterior of the other ship to help establish just what we're cutting away to... buuuut that'd require doing TWO animations on a page that's already broken from trying to include just one... yeah, I basically feel like Mariska looks right now.

All that said, it was fun to have another reminder that there 's even MORE characters on the way to join our already bloated cast. We really should have cut to them earlier, just to keep all the pieces in play. I probably should have done that instead of one of those random pages of Blip saying something weird.

Well, anyway, I'm pleased to report that, while everything else has been getting delayed and bogged down, Voting Incentives are actually updating again! So I am accomplishing SOMETHING around here!

@ Incentive: Is... Tax actually getting worried there? That's TERRIFYING.

@ Comic: I feel like Ichabod would take to flying through subspace "like a fish to water". To the point where everyone else around him is having issues, and he's just happily eating an apple and commenting about the complex patterns subspace is making as they travel through it.

...and then, as soon as they re-enter normal space, there'd be some minor turbulence that everyone else doesn't even notice, but he's severely inconvenienced by somehow. :D

Also, Tax is less worried and more disappointed that none of this is actually having the obvious result.

@ Blitz: And that we only know about due to him ranting about it in the background of a later comic while he's still trying to "fix" the issue.

...actually, idea on what the "turbulence" could do, if you ever actually want to something like that. Mess around with Ichabod's Books. It could do either or both of two options. First it could rearrange the books, messing with the order. Alternatively, it could mess with either the covers or the pages, causing the wrong books to be in the wrong covers. The question is, which of those would make irritate Ichabod's Nitpicking Instincts more?
