And let me just note how nice it is to have something taking place with Gertie on a planet so everyone can talk to each other and I don't have to try and explain communication in space. Damn, that's nice.</p></p></div> Fri, 19 Oct 2018 00:00:00 -0400 CVRPG - #3149: Yeah It Is! <div><img src=''></div><div><p>I've done the "I've seen bigger" gag before, so that didn't seem appropriate here. Besides, in comic, we haven't seen bigger. We'll let them have this one.</p></div> Thu, 18 Oct 2018 00:00:00 -0400 CVRPG - #3148: Submarine Alert <div><img src=''></div><div><p>Star Trek is great for all kinds of naval terms (at least for a layman), but if there are terms specific to a submarine and not above-water naval ships (which I assume there are), Trek hasn't taught me any of them. So we'll just make a bunch of them up and act like everything is okay.</p></div> Wed, 17 Oct 2018 00:00:00 -0400 CVRPG - #3147: Adventure Is This Way, I'm Sure <div><img src=''></div><div><p>It's when they find their goal almost immediately that they have to worry. And considering I've written that plotline before, and it hasn't worked out well for them, Darkmoon is right that this is probably the better way to run things.</p></div> Tue, 16 Oct 2018 00:00:00 -0400 CVRPG - #3146: Something Rises <div><img src=''></div><div><p>Oh hey, there's a big fellah. I modeled this vaguely on a Portuguese Man-o-War, and then just kind of wandered off with the design a fair bit, largely because some versions of that creature are copyrighted and I was really looking more for just an homage than to outright borrow the creature. Besides, those beasts aren't normally known to talk, so that's a clear difference right there.</p></div> Mon, 15 Oct 2018 00:00:00 -0400 CVRPG - #3145: Give Me a Sign <div><img src=''></div><div><p>I hear prayer works for some people. I mean, probably not these people who, famously, have been said to "not have a prayer's chance" but that was in relation to them doing anything right, and... well, it seems applicable here.</p></div> Fri, 12 Oct 2018 00:00:00 -0400 CVRPG - #3144: Hard Work Ahead <div><img src=''></div><div><p>She can rebuild herself pretty quickly. One would think something "minor" like this wouldn't take very long, right? Well, that or she was working on it ever since they landed at this planet under the assumption the stupid humans would eventually ask her to do something dumb like "go under water", and she's only now saying it's done to look like a miracle worker. Either or.</p> <p>I may have made her just a little too powerful.</p></div> Thu, 11 Oct 2018 00:00:00 -0400 CVRPG - #3143: Not This Way <div><img src=''></div><div><p>Seriously, that is a big damn animal. I don't think you should go this way, no matter how much it might have seemed like a good idea before.</p></div> Wed, 10 Oct 2018 00:00:00 -0400 CVRPG - #3142: Gathering Together <div><img src=''></div><div><p>I might need to draw some more fish at some point. This ocean is starting to look a little too homogeneous right now.</p></div> Tue, 09 Oct 2018 00:00:00 -0400 CVRPG - #3141: The Magic of Music <div><img src=''></div><div><p>Today on Mike writes terrible lyrics: Mike writes terrible lyrics. You're welcome.</p></div> Mon, 08 Oct 2018 00:00:00 -0400 CVRPG - #3140: How Far Down? <div><img src=''></div><div><p>As we've established, Gertie can survive a lot. No one else on the crew would survive, but, you know, the universe is full of people. I'm sure she'll find a new crew.</p></div> Fri, 05 Oct 2018 00:00:00 -0400 CVRPG - #3139: Clear and very Present Danger <div><img src=''></div><div><p>That would appear to be very big horn coming in to view. It's quite a large animal, just from what we've seen so far. Really makes you wonder how it fits into these caves, ya know?</p></div> Thu, 04 Oct 2018 00:00:00 -0400 CVRPG - #3138: An Interesting School <div><img src=''></div><div><p>Great, I'm going to have to draw an underwater civilization, aren't I? Fuck...</p></div> Wed, 03 Oct 2018 00:00:00 -0400 CVRPG - #3137: Pray the Science Away <div><img src=''></div><div><p>Katrina is a very opinionated sorceress. That's what happens when you got to school -- you get opinions. It's why I have so many. Her training, of course, taught her the "right" way to do things and anything else would be "wrong" by that definition.</p> <p>Still, being a bard is just dumb.</p></div> Tue, 02 Oct 2018 00:00:00 -0400 CVRPG - #3136: Basic and Complex Communication <div><img src=''></div><div><p>I'm actually really enjoying seeing where this goes. Just being able to explore how two very different species could communicate is a fascinating idea. This is about as close as my silly Castlevania comic has ever gotten to being like Star Trek, and I really dig it.</p></div> Mon, 01 Oct 2018 00:00:00 -0400 CVRPG - #3135: Big and Bigger <div><img src=''></div><div><p>I mean, I can easily scale the unicorn larger if I wanted. This art style works for me. I dunno if I'd even feel like I was cheating -- Diablo II does it all the time for the elite packs it throws at you. Just larger versions of the same enemies you've been fighting all along. Simple game mechanic, really.</p></div> Fri, 28 Sep 2018 00:00:00 -0400 CVRPG - #3134: Get to the Surface <div><img src=''></div><div><p>Gotta do some pirate shit once in a while. When am I ever going to have the chance again, really, especially since I made the galleon into a spaceship. We're nearly the end of my chances, so I'm gonna take them while I can.</p></div> Thu, 27 Sep 2018 00:00:00 -0400 CVRPG - #3133: Into the Woods <div><img src=''></div><div><p>This is what they should have done all along. All the rest of this was just petty bullshit and dragging of feet. A pretty normal way for them to get through a quest, to be sure. These people are the masters of not doing anything properly or on time.</p></div> Wed, 26 Sep 2018 00:00:00 -0400 CVRPG - #3132: A Long Conversation <div><img src=''></div><div><p>Everything about this seems so dirty. I mean, I don't know how else to have these creatures talk, or to convey those actions, than through shocks and pulses and tentacle movement. From that perspective this all makes sense. But I also snigger every time I write any of it because it's all so damn dirty looking.</p></div> Tue, 25 Sep 2018 00:00:00 -0400 CVRPG - #3131: So Ugly <div><img src=''></div><div><p>I was gonna have the unicorn breathe fire, but I've used that fire effect a lot lately. Eye lightning seemed like a nice change of pace.</p></div> Mon, 24 Sep 2018 00:00:00 -0400 CVRPG - #3130: Down Near the Bottom <div><img src=''></div><div><p>I'm really happy with the water effects I've managed so far. The deep ocean, the lighting, it's all looking really nice. Considering how crappy I am as an artist, it's nice to feel good about the crap I draw once in a while.</p></div> Fri, 21 Sep 2018 00:00:00 -0400 CVRPG - #3129: Good Intentions <div><img src=''></div><div><p>Really, when you line it all up like that, they've really fucked up this whole mission. But then, when don't they?</p></div> Thu, 20 Sep 2018 00:00:00 -0400 CVRPG - #3128: It's an Illusion <div><img src=''></div><div><p>Really, I just wanted to play with the weird squid thing for a little bit, and since the ship has cloaking, this seemed like the right opportunity to do so.</p></div> Wed, 19 Sep 2018 00:00:00 -0400 CVRPG - #3127: The Fearsome Beast <div><img src=''></div><div><p>Technically, it's a common unicorn from over in my game system, There's a Game in this Book. I re-purposed it for over here since it was a thoroughly underwhelming creature. The perfect thing to throw against Darkmoon, I think.</p></div> Tue, 18 Sep 2018 00:00:00 -0400 CVRPG - #3126: Bon Voyage <div><img src=''></div><div><p>I mean, this literally is the fastest way to get the pod off the ship. Seems logical to me.</p></div> Mon, 17 Sep 2018 00:00:00 -0400
