wasnt it wedge himself that ended up flying around with the ewok doll strapped to his chest in that book?

@... Merendel, Yes, but I don’t think that’s what Will is referring to; Wedge did fly around with a fake ewok doll strapped to his chest, but Lara Notsil/Gara Petothel/Kirney Slane found an ewok that could pilot ships with leg and arm extensions when she was escaping from Iron Fist (he was not named Kettch, but a facsimile of the character otherwise). When she sends a message to Myn Donos at the end of Solo Command she tells him that he’s already met her droid but she has a copilot that he “really needs to meet.” In that message, she… Read more »

Hmm I do vaguely remember that now that you mention it. wasnt the real ewok an experiment by warlord zinjj (or whatever his name was) to duplicate the supposed experiment that created the fictitious kettch? Been a long time since I read any of the Xwing books but I do remember the Wraith squadron arc of them being particularly amusing due to all the shenanigans they got up to including the kettch running gag.

Good point, I forgot the connection that the story of Kettch was what inspired Zsinj to duplicate it, and that’s who Petothel found. Well played sir.

When it comes to food and porn, I’m pretty sure most people can read Ethan’s mind XD

I’m enjoying the return of Ethan and Lucas just doing their thing. Honestly the super hero stuff just didn’t work for me.

I am extremely pleased with this arc. I have read it so many times with awe. Thank you for bringin Ethan and Lucas’ slice of life back! It was the thing I fell in love with CAD in the first time and I have missed it dearly.
Warm hugs of gratefulness from someone who has read nearly from the beginning. X

If acid died and went god tier, we would have trickster mode. 10 points to whoever gets the reference.

Are you paying any attention to what you are saying?
Who/what is this acid, and why is there a dead body atop that big slab of rock with weird symbols painted on?

It was a joke someone made on a YT video, how the drug acid in our world is like going trickster mode, then someone mentioned if it died and went god tier, basically becoming more powerful, we would have trickster mode. And there’s a dead body atop the big slab of rock with the doom symbol painted on because Ovreir was stabbed and he wanted to go god tier :3

I get not only that reference, but the unintentional one Ethan made a few comics ago when he said “thinkpan”. And what would acid’s godly pajamas look like?

Great comic today Tim. I laughed harder than I probably should have, especially considering I was at work.

Licenses to sell porn or food?!? What happened to the free market?!?

Food Handling licenses or Food Safety Certifications are required in a number of countries for any food products that are not ‘packaged’ foods (crisps, chocolate bars, etc) – numerous states in the USA Australia, New Zealand, Europe/European Union, Japan, the list goes on.

If you try to sell any kind of food that you process/cook yourself without an appropriate license, you can be fined anywhere up to tens of thousands of dollars and be looking at jail time.

Its weird how this joke almost seems formulaic, but I guess it also sets up some expectations that make the joke hit that much harder. Ethan identifies something that causes him irritation, and then comes up with a hair brained, off the wall, completely bananas solution. Lucas does not dismiss the idea, but instead takes it at full face value, and smashes it with reality, and the occasional sarcastic undertone.

It is a good joke.

Mild analysis of a simple logical technique?
Which is then countered with a near reversal of the previous statement?
What horror!

Because porn is short for “pornography,” a non-derogatory term naming the portrayal of sexual acts in a visual medium, and “whore” is a VERY derogatory (and far too commonly used, unfortunately) term used to describe a person in the profession of prostitution.
