Leon Arnott (l) says: That reminds me: how did Helen solve the problem of O2 recycling? Reverse-respiration gerbils, perhaps?
Goodness! They've just encountered aliens! Extra-terrestrial beings! Men from the stars! ...Was it too much to hope that this occasion would be slightly more auspicious?
Rachel S. (masamage) says: I like the Hapax's font.
Tiff Hudson (tiff_hudson) says: I didn't even notice the change in inking. I figured the Hapax was just deformed by the process of squeezing through a porthole rather smaller than it's body.
David Harmon (mental_mouse) says:
I read "Oe recycling", and wondered if it was a Victorian literary reference.
Dan Knapp (dankna) says:
Oz recycling is how you get fourteen books out of the same basic concept! Obviously. But yes, I think we all knew you meant O2. Though chemical formulae like that are probably an anachronism. And, like Leon, I want to know how Helen solved the problem. Or at least how she addressed it.
I concur with Rachel, that is an awesome font - except that it's hand-lettering probably, since you just told us everything else was at this point, which makes it even more awesome.
I didn't notice the change in inking either. Color me unobservant. And you can have Andrew do the coloring if you want.
Tiff Hudson (tiff_hudson) says: Dan, I hope you like black. :-)
Rachel S. (masamage) says: Fonts can be hand-lettered. :) (cf. The dragons at Ozy and Millie)
David Harmon (mental_mouse) says: From a comment in Language Hat : (http://www.languagehat.com/mt/mt-comments.cgi?entry_id=3312)
A hapax legomenon (pl. hapax legomena, though sometimes called hapaxes for short) is a word which occurs only once in the written record of a language, in the works of an author, or in a single text.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hapax_legomenon
