The penguins will figure out how to steer eventually, maybe even invent a radar system to see thins better inside the plane.
NO! NOT STARSCREAM! This can’t be happening!
Are those like…ribbon octopuses? Lol at first I thought they looked like monkeys from Barrel-o-Monkeys or whatever it’s called… XD
Oh Lemmo. See what happens when you try to take control and be rational? Exactly.
Haha I love everyone’s expressions. Also: OCTORIBBONS? They seem exciting ^-^
Great job guys, like always! Can’t wait for more :)
Whoa, sudden Wednesday update!
Anyway from the looks of things that penguin plane looks more advanced (well maybe not advanced. Complicated?) than the previous one. With big gigantic ridiculous-looking pitchfork intakes!
And for the record I’m not really all that surprised by the octoribbons. Penguins keep a whole bunch of random junk in their aircraft. Most of which seems to want to hurt Marina…
My first thought was that this was a bug ship. Since that’s what happened the first time through. Also it seems to holding altitude better than the penguins I remember.
Another idea is that this could be some whole new species. After all the new Socks is now a turtle and we never saw THAT before.
So instead of a bug, it’s a penguin ship this time. Will there be a penguin inside a penguin inside a penguin this time?
What? No Confetti?
Oh god, not again.
Oh god yes, here we go again!
*staring at the turtle* Lemmo looks weird in a vest.
Well, that lasted all of two seconds.
I feel like they’ve now officially entered some alternate universe where everything that happened to them is happening all over again, but slightly different. For instance, instead of a giant bug ship flown by bugs that sprays confetti, we now have a giant spaceship flown by who knows what that drops little purple octopuses.
Or this could be the same universe just continuing to be completely insane. I’m flexible.
Anyone else notice that alternate-Lemmo’s spiky bangs are flatter and straighter than original-Lemmo’s? Or is that just on this page.
NOW THE TURTLE MUST TALK
technically, the shovel should have burned up by now…
@riverfox It’s a call-back. Lemmo’s hair has changed due to art evolution and now Lemmo #2 has Lemmo’s old hair. Which makes me wonder: Are the Aric and Lemmo we’ve been following since Chapter 2 the same Aric and Lemmo from Chapter 1? I’m a bit disturbed by that idea…
@Zapheres YES :D http://blankitcomics.com/2011/12/12/finding-consensus/
Poor Marina, she was the only one that saw the ship coming….
Lemmo lemmo lemmo… Your not spose to the rational one. And wasn’t it a bug last time. Weird but cool. I love these comics
Everyone ready to be calm and rational and try to figure out this situation? Great, because rocket ship pooping purple octopi.
The turtle saw it coming lol I <3 turtles
Lemmo 2 looks and feels very different from the normal Lemmo. The original Lemmo has grown to have a more rugged, mature face, with the sideburns and long shaggy hair, and often has a thoughtful expression lately; whereas L2 so far has shown a similar, but more whimsical expression, and a more exaggerated, cartoonish look.
Also, the octo-ribbons (somebody think of a witty name for them, fast) look fun. Let’s hope they’re not just scraps of ribbon and are actually a new species or something.
Its Back up although i suppose it has been for a little wile. Im just happy.
Wheeee! I’m confused but gleefully happy, and i dont like glee, but i will allow it. for this comic! YEY!
WAIT, THE space-time continum states that if something is changed in the past By something in the future, That thing in the future would turn into the new Lemmo and Aric or dissapear until the next L & A comes. My brain feel full.
Wait, I meant That Lemmo and Aric would change into the new ones/dissapear. I like turtles.
Ummmm…. Penguins have now created interstellar capable ships….. We are screwed
@Chaudblaze What are stars?
Then again the tube may have been a portal into an alternate dimension and the bugs have become robo-bugs
If speculation was a fuel source, this would be the highest paid website on the planet.
I wonder if Freezie is a scientist researching the possible fuel applications of speculation? If so, what might be said applications?
I was just going for a fairly clever comment.
As for applications, the Cyn Wolf series suggested cars that run off of stupidity. The pirate captain in Dubious Company made a flying ship that runs off drunkenness. I’m fairly certain that speculation as a fuel source would power crime-scene investigation equipment.
speculation is what helps fuel the stock market. people who invest in the stock market are called speculators.
if there were no speculators (who speculate) there would be no reason to have a stock market. nobody would buy shares of a company, so you wouldn’t be able to put a value on something like that.
@random man: natch.
Also, I find that the combined news of not being dead AND Blank-it not being dead exceedingly pleasing. Yay.
What kind of radiation are you? Alpha, Beta, or Gamma?
Uh-oh. Blank It stopped again.
@nanners-man i think s/he radiates marshmallows.
BLANK IT.EXE HAS STOPPED WORKING
CTRL ALT DELETE… ERROR – PROGRAM NOT RESPONDING
PLEASE PRESS ALT+F4, THEN RESTART THE COMPTER
SOMETIMES SCREAMING IN FRUSTRATION HELPS TOO. MAYBE IT WOULD HELP TO THREATEN THE COMPUTER WIHT BEING THROWN OUT THE WINDOW. EXPERIMENT WITH WHAT WORKS BEST FOR YOU. HAVE A NICE DAY!
Well, I’m done with this site. Pretty disappointing to come back months after they had stopped working on the comics to find a scant few new ones, and even those are nearly two months old.
ERROR 189739: THE MATRIX HAS YOU, LEMMO
Grrrr I’ve stopped checking every few weeks and still nada it’s been what since december
I understand that people are anticipating a new comic, but I implore everyone to remember that this is -free- entertainment. Frankly, that the creators have labored as much as they already have to provide this quality for us at no charge, I’d still be grateful if there was never another Blank-It again. Besides, that’s what RSS feeds are for; no need to continually check back, just live your life until the next update. [/:twocents:]
Nicely put venger
okay,i’m calling it,blank it is dead,the site will soon b esold after a small note of explanation in april,this is just rediculous,great comic guys if it hasn’t ended yet
Meh. Lemmo has taken long sabbaticals before. Last time it did this, it lasted a couple years of quiet before a new writer contacted him, procured the old notes, then started working side by side with him to resurrect the comic. Of course, then it died a few months later, but point is it did get rolling again.
YAY! I finally caught up!
Have we been abandoned again? :(
really trying not to sound like a whiner here, but it’s been 3 months since the last update and I would like to know if it’s over or not
I have to agree with sad guy.
I’d totally write for lemmo…! for cyber packing peanuts! EVEN LESS REAL THAN REAL PACKING PENUTS ARE TO REAL PEANUTS! so free.
I wonder what is the equivalent to cyber packing peanuts. Some kind of redundancy mechanism for uploading and downloading to make sure the file doesn’t get corrupted by copy errors, I suppose. That’d be cyber packing peanuts. Sure.
Just thinking about it, cyber packing peanuts just sounds like something to put into this comic. And the wierder it gets, the more fun, and funny the journey becomes, right?
is there even anyone checking anymore?
P.S. cyber packing peanuts
Yep still here, keepin the dream alive :) I know there’s a chat room for this sort of activity but anyone want to comment on their favorite Blank It moment?
@Mell “Give me your hat.” “Go to hell.”
I laughed hard at that one :p
@Tarkov Nice :) “I think we’re drifting apart.” “Was it something I said?” :)
Oh no! It would appear that Blank It has been visited by the dreaded HIATUS BEAST!!!
Well, I really enjoyed this comic while it lasted.
Well shit. Comic either stalled or Lemmo/Pew are going their separate ways.
It was a great comic with a good premice, and I am really sad that it came to this (especially since I was one of the earlier readers!)
Still will be checking, but I will not cross my fingers anymore.
Sometimes I come back to see if the comic updated, and every time I am made sad. :(
In retrospect, I probably should have seen this coming. It’s a shame this (seemingly) died, though.
Wait, scratch that. Just indefinitely stalled.
Wait… what? Just found this webcomic and read through it from the beginning (yes it’s that good!!!) and now I suddenly unexpectedly hit current date which isn’t current date because it’s…… Okay, it’s on sabbattical. Let’s just keep it at that. This was great! Hoping for more.
I guess Aric’s having a bad hair day. (Okay yeah that was terrible) Loved the comic so far! <3
for once checking bakc on a webcomic has payed off, this time, in SPADES MAN (pun intended)
