By Tom Siddell
Did someone try to throw down??
Oh he has the ship.
And Annie has to end the evening with an empty dance card... *sad trombone*
It's because someone tried to breakdance. That sign was there for a reason!
And Tom has finally decided to invade his comic's own universe and even went the extra mile of hijacking the cruise. This should be fun!
What the-?!!?? Why the hell are the S13s here?!??!!!
Cue breakdancing prowess used to keep one's balance WHILE delivering 1st-degree burns to all who accidentally gaze up on dancer.
Wonder what's going to happen with Annie and the gang...
kinda bummed out that we didn't get to see some pazkat dancing
Strange comment to make for an announcer... I would almost guess Coyote's having a chuckle.
This can't be good. ._.
Why do I get the feeling that Jack has something to do with this?
Where's a weather report when you need one! That rocking boat is sure to make Zimmy give up her lunch. Could Hyland be causing this to prove a point?
I'm thinkin' someone tried to break-dance off panel.
I get it! :D This is the end-of-year test: stick the students on a ship in a stormy sea with a horde of homicidal robots, whoever comes out alive passes! Someone at the Court has obviously been watching too much Japanese cinema ^^
Eldrich abominations take center stage in 3-2-1......
Is that ship called the Poseidon by any chance
Sounds like mystery voice reads "Order of the Stick".
WERE GOING TO SPACE ITS TOTALLY HAPPENING
Oh my Gods, it's Randy isn't it?!?!?
That robot thought it fooled the passengers?
They may not have thought anything of the big wave UNTIL it made that announcement. Now, they have the exact thoughts it want to avoid.
Whoever programmed that bot was an idiot.
Here comes the Seraphs!
Uh... guys? Where did all the sailor-bots go?
Wow, were Annie and Winsbury, like, TALKING to each other? Casually? Far out!
Doctor Disaster. Calling it. Right now.
Such evil, evil cliffhangers. Who are those shadow guys?
Robot hostile takeover!
Rectangular heads and wings? What are S-model robots doing there?
You just can't have a boat party without there being a storm. That's a required principle nowadays.
Wait, are those S1 robots? Please don't tell me they're here to praise Kat. She's trying to spend time with her GF, guys. Lay-off the whole "Angel" thing for once, alright?
Announcer person has a sense of style/melodrama.
Also, ominous robots are ominous
This doesn't sound good... I guess we should have known it was some sort of scheme when they let Zimmy on board.
Looks like it might be being cancelled to instead bring you... A robot cabaret!
The S-model robots? What the hell are they doing here?
Turn down for ocean turbulence.
Ooooooh.... Thought a Zimmy-issue would lead this chapter? Psych! The Seraph robots return!
Never saw it coming. At least everyone is wearing their fancy best, if not their funeral best.
Oh no robot, what have you done now?
Of COURSE it wasn't going to be a normal cruise. Where's the fun in a normal cruise? Out in the ocean, with the weird sea things.
Hold on just a minute, those are robots in the background...is there about to be a cleverly orchestrated action scene? Boy, I hope so.
Because all of the greatest villains make their moves only at the most dramatically appropriate times.
Shouldn't that have been, "appropriately dramatic", instead of "dramatically appropriate"? Robots...
Still, those waves came up awful sudden like, huh?
Hey, maybe it's Doctor Disaster!
No time for dancing, we must save the world!
I find myself wondering whether Dr Disaster has any non-spacemonaut scenarios for older students.
Incredibly minor nitpick - that light should be red, not yellow. As it is, it's a violation of maritime law.
Shadow choir? Hm, I guess that's a pretty powerful microphone.
I dramaticaly hate that guy
Uh oh, is this why Zimmy shouldn't be on boats? Cause those clouds and waves do nothing to comfort me.
Panel 1-- Suddenly panel 2, Bulwer-Lytton; A dark and stormy night! Followed by panels 3, 4, 5, 6, then Suddenly, the Singularity! Robot revolution #9. You say you want a revolution? Well, you know, we all want to change your head.
ten quid says the announcer is dr. disaster.
but what's with the seraph army on stage?
Didn't someone get tied to a tree the last time this happened?
Turn down for what?
Oh Crap! It's the plot!
Now breakdance back to your cabins! :)
That looks like a mob of seraphim backstage there. Is Lindsey acting as Cruise Director so that she is the one cancelling the activities?
It's dramatic alright...
Wow I totally did not expect this
Oh dear. I knew that 'no breakdancing' rule was going to be impossibly ridiculous!
Dr. Disaster, what are you up to now??! >:=)>
Mutiny! Rebellion! AI finally takes over the world!
Prediction: return of Dr. Disaster.
"There has been a murder aboard this boat."
Dun dun dun!
D'oh! My keenly honed clumsiness* with the tablet made me click the button too soon...
I meant to add that I really love the waves in panel two. Tom, I'm continually impressed at how far your art has come in such a short time.
*what I do have are a very particular set of skills, skills I have acquired over a very long career... of being a klutz
O_O bunch of shadowy seraph models means this is either going to be very bad or very epic.
who are all those people behind the curtain
Last panel. In the background.
Always have to do things at a dramatic time
A dramatically appropriate time. Lol.
Ah, just as I was about to ship so many of the characters.
It's kind of sinking into me that this might indeed be a thrown down- a la Titanic throw down.
Someone definitely tried to show off their break-dancing moves like a champ. I wonder who they are... SMITTY!
What? There is PLOT afoot!? Hoooo boy!
All activities cancelled - now the real party starts!
Timing is everything. So...uh...who exactly is that back there? And why do those clouds whisper "Zimmy"?
I love the announcement. It's just too perfect.
Danger? Drama? Could this be the work of... Doctor Disaster?
OOOh titanic moment :)
The robots are going to try to take over!
Arrrrgghhh, Coyote! Go home or it's time for more spankies!
Ok. Who decided to breakdance. (My eyes are on you, Jack.)
They must not have been keeping the regulation one foot (30 cm) distance from each other.
How come Red's not on the cruise?
You know that everything will be just great when the seraphs show up.
Uh oh...what is Robot up to now? Or is this some of his frienemies (the other Seraph units)?
Are those, Gremlins?
"Please do not panic, time for the plot. Please calmly go back to your cabins, unless you are a MC.
It's better than throwing up!
(get the reference?)
"dramatically appropriate time"?
its Doctor Disaster
I love the second panel.
The "dramatically appropriate time"? Really?
Either someone talks really weird, or this is basically "Let's advance the plot now people".
I'm going to go with the former. It's funnier that way.
Regular storm? Zimmy's storm? Some other kind of storm?
did zimmy do that?
Oh good, creepy black forms with glowing eyes; my favorite thing on a cruise ship.
Jack what did we say about breakdancing?
Those actually look to be seraph robots in the back of the stage, with their claw hands and angel wingy thingys! "We want our angel back! Do not try to stop us, or we shall sink the ship!" Robot uprising. Where's Will Smith when you need him?!
If I were on that boat right now I would be screaming
"WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE!!!".
That is way too many robots.
