Human readers should not feel inadequate if they do not find themselves aroused by the following scene

This is great!

'On September 11th the US was not attacked with nuclear or biological weapons; it was attacked with box-cutters.'

Incisive foreign policy critiques, a planet in a glass... These guys have everything. Still prefer Maakies though. They just get on with it and kill themselves.

Thanks rustcellar. I love how the opening comic depicts them making the very thing that is going to replace them.

I was debating this as an FPP, but I figured the lack of content would get me slapped. Damn my idiot brain! rustcellar, you have better reckoning than I, and apparently at least as much taste.

this is awesome!
i'm usually a little skeptical of online comics, so few have really grabbed me. But the drawings here are great, and the stories are very charming.

It's no white ninja though. (obviously. they're nothing alike. but white ninja is awesome too. just sayin'.)

Pretty awesome...

From the description, I was expecting a continuation of the adventures of Klaupaticus and Trurl, everyone's favorite pair of Constructors.

Too bad it's abandonware. If you're looking for something entertaining and much less intellectual, check out Questionable Content (Occasionally NSFW, but only the text.)

Thisis really good.

"...Klaupaticus and Trurl, everyone's favorite pair of Constructors." - kaibutsu

That would simply rock.

I do have hopes, given the recent note that he now has a connection at home, that he might get back to work on the thing. (Despite quonsar above, the latest episode was November 1.)

And as of 12/16, we have a new comic strip. Yay!
