Okay, confession time. This wasn't the page that supposed to go up today, and the explanation is one of the funniest things you're ever gonna hear this week. You know how I only just got back from MAGFest? You know how I've only managed to get two Conventional Wisdom pages done so far? You know how I swore up and down that I wouldn't try to do more than one convention per month anymore? Well, funny thing: there's a little scifi con called Illogicon happening in town this weekend, and I was reeeaaaally close to going to that. In the middle of another convention's comic updates. Mere days after getting back from one of the most exhausting events of the year. Clearly, I am a crazy idiot. Thankfully, I started to get a bit of a runny nose last night, and that was enough to make me paranoid about coming down with con crud. I mean, plunging into ANOTHER three days of cramped rooms full of people with questionable hygiene when I've not quite recovered from the last one? I dodged the bullet on catching the plague once, I don't think I'm lucky enough to get away clean twice. Unfortunately, by the time I came to my senses and resolved to stay home, I'd already pushed back the more elaborate page that was supposed to go up today and gone to work on this single panel one... and then I fell asleep, which is why it ended up being late anyway.

But look! Animation! Yeah, this isn't COMPLETE filler, because I have been wanting to experiment more with the possibilities of that visor thing the Cap'n has for a while now. There just hasn't been many opportunities to actually get creative without upstaging something else. Nothing to get in the way of here, though! Let's see if I can find any more weird things to do with that screen. Incidentally, I should probably add to any readers with short memories that Captain Crosby is NOT a robot, just a dude in a futury techno suit. Gotta remember to keep these details straight.

Oh, but at least I did, if fact, manage to get a fresh TWC Voting Incentive done! Sorry about the continued delays there. I didn't properly account for how much time that remaining pile of AWA Patreon comics would take, but there's all finished now. At this point, it's just the MAGFest comics and regular Far Out There stuff to focus on... and no extra convention over the weekend to bog things down!

... I guess you can't make a typo in the title if you just don't give your page a title.

(Says the person who's forgotten to give titles to entire chapters--)

Killing yourself by going to too many cons seems... unwise, so you should probably try and hold on to that resolve.

Man, I've really been on a roll with these titles, haven't I?

For context on the convention thing: The only reason I even CONSIDERED doing another one this close is because it's a little local con I've been meaning to check out for years. I made it a goal for 2019 to focus more on local cons, and this was one of the primary ones I wanted to finally cover... until I sat down and looked at the dates.

Man, why do so many cons have to crowd into the same spots on the calendar?

Never Forget To Include A Title
Now I kind of feel bad that I disabled animation on all my web browsers (because animated ads are THE SINGLE MOST ANNOYING THING EVER INVENTED BY MAN) and so I'll never know what this really should look like :(

Also, I suspect that it is completely reasonable to assume that Blip has actually flushed a chainsaw, probably more than once, and is therefore familiar with the exact sound.
