    Sailing for adventure on the deep purple sea!
    A true man… beautiful.

    While I’m always pleasantly surprised by the unexpected turns in this strip, I’m especially delighted by the guy who created puppet theater from his own shirt being able to create a sail-worthy craft. It’s an awesome little feat and, of course, unexpected, but better than that: inspired. The bug boat rocks.

    I’m finding some winter box elder bugs and make one of my own.

    We learn more about the universe – we always kinda assumed there was air, but wind too?

    Nice boat! But who’s steering? It looks like you’re headed upwind, so you definitely need a firm hand on the helm.

  6. Shardwing

    One only needs to steer if they have a destination, I’d say.

    clever, sir….. clever

    This is beginning to remind me of a drawing game my Dad used to play with me before bedtime when I was a wee lad, and that is a good thing. :)

    The latest large, and seemingly persistent, developments have also made me wonder where things will go when more of the world will be established. Good stuff.

    What horrors will they awaken when they craft a sky? Or what if the ontological inertia of this ocean is in question, just like the firey demise of the shovel took so strangely long?

    I should point out that since this strip came out I’ve been trying to find the perfect appropriate line from “Rime of the Ancient Mariner”, from either the Coleridge text or the Iron Maiden song…

    Somehow this strip just reminded me, wasn’t sure why, but my brain has remembered this:

    “We stuck nor breath nor motion
    As idle as a painted ship upon a painted ocean
    Water, water everywhere and
    All the boards did shrink
    Water, water everywhere nor any drop to drink.”

    It’s not quite right, of course, since Aric’s boat is clearly mobile, but somewhere in the depths of my brain it fitted.

    well wind implies convection which could imply evaporation, which will lead to rain? seasons? even snow? purple snow. . . think about it. I am

    I’ll bet Socks would make a GREAT first-mate. ^_^

    Socks the Fox!

  17. lemmo

    Not familiar.

  18. Arantor

    No, because he ran with Aric, not with you! Though when the two of you boarded the Giant Nightmare Flying Monster, the Socks Fox was left behind!
