Another laaaaate page and another update without a new Voting Incentive... but it's ALSO another instance where I can't feel to guilty about it. Frustrated? Sure. But not guilty. You know why? Because this is the third comic page I've put online in the past 24 hours. Like, not an incentive doodle, but full on, actually COMICS. The next batch of Conventional Wisdom comics are now underway, not to mention the the bonus Patreon comics from the PREVIOUS round of Conventional Wisdom stuff. All that in a single 24 hour stretch. Yeah, I'm to busy being proud that I'm still conscious to beat myself up that I couldn't grind out at TWC Incentive as well.

THAT SAID, I actually am working on a new Incentive series, and this one is an actual series of real comic pages rather than just doodles. It's an idea I've wanted to do for a while now, and there's really no way to fit it into the regular narrative, so a side story is really the only chance to get it out there. Unfortunately... well, see the previous paragraph. I'm hoping to get a small backlog of pages edited up and finished before I actually start posting any of them, so that they'll be able to keep going up automatically the NEXT time I get bogged down on Conventional Wisdom or whatever else on the To Do List (I'll need to start working on Christmas comics again before any of us realize it)

@ Cap'n's Eyes: Given that look, I feel like Avatar NEEDS to go to the Cap'n and give him a hug. He appears to be desperate for the comfort Layla's getting from his disdain.

Also, Mariska's ship may not be as safe as she thinks, as it appears she's having time loops having time loops in her speech bubble.

@Darius - How do the Cap'n's Eyes even work? Does his suit measure his biological degree of exasperation and then project appropriate eye expressions onto his screen?

@ Ed8: The Cap'n's "eyes" work in one of two ways. The first is that the face cover takes impressions of the attitude he is displaying, and makes the eyes on the screen display his current attitude in order to keep facial expressions and reactions natural and comforting to others.

The second is that it works the same way Ichabod's Glasses change shape depending on Ichabod's irritation or other emotions.

This is, after all, a protective suit worn near constantly by a major character. No need for it to be overly influenced by Mad Science Style Development.

No Such Thing As Too Much Mad Science
What?! Don't be silly, there's ALWAYS a need for EVERYTHING to be influenced by Mad Science Style Development!
(But don't tell Avatar I said that)

Even More Nitpicking
your Conventional Wisdom link in your author comments doesn't actually work (it has an extra %20 in it)

Not "Too Much Mad Science", "Less Influenced by Mad Science"
@ Ed8 on No Such Thing As Too Much Mad Science: I said that there's no need for it to be OVERLY influenced by Mad Science Style Development.

Obviously the basis of the design was made by Mad Scientists, but has been taken by the Reverse Engineers that are FOT's "Scientists" and stripped of the dangerous, outright stupid and/or just plain uncomfortable things the Mad Scientists put in there over generations of redevelopment by "Normal Scientists and Technology Designers".

Like most of the more commonplace, non-cosmetic, Technology we see in FOT. Like Vending Machines, Space Ships, and Blip.
