That is a friggin' awesome gun.

Moving on... Rod Anderson sent me what is now one of my favorite pieces of Narbonic art ever. Rod writes: " I took my cue from the strip where Dave imagines a karmic procession of Daves tormented by Helens throughout human history, and depicted the Georgian Helen Narbon who, one supposes, immediately preceded the Victorian one."

It's true! The Irish are terrifying! Thank you, Rod!

So It Begins (soitbegins) says: *snicker* I like the hearts-on-the-bodice.
Leon Arnott (l) says: What a coincidence - this is also one of my favourite pieces of Narbonic art.

"Class Magenta" is quite a fitting Helenic touch, perhaps even more so than 'Kill Everything A Lot' mode.
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

That is a absofrigginlutely awesome sauce piece of faux-Georgian artwork.  My electronically simulated hat is off to you, Mr. Anderson.

Also:  Big Freakin' (tm) Gun count: 28

Alex KB (kbkarma) says:

It's true, we are pretty terrifying.

Carl Fishman (carlfishman) says:

Wouldn't there have been a Regency or Empire Helen in between?  One can just imagine Narbonics as written by Georgette Heyer, with Dave a member of the Four Horse Club and wearing a caped overcoat.

Or maybe not.

Shaenon Garrity (shaenongarrity) says:

It's all fun and games until they get wiped out in the trenches of WWI...
Ruben Krasnopolsky (ruben) says: I gulp my yogurt in their honor: plastic bottle, code 2.  May they all go from victory to complete success, a hundred times.  In all cultures where Narbons have thrived, let's take a brief moment to celebrate their achievements.
Rockphed (rockphed) says: Hrm, what is the profession of Georgian Dave?  He is holding a pie-chart, so he might be an accountant, but somehow I do not see any Dave Davenport(or D--- D--------) ever taking up accounting.
John Campbell (jcampbel) says:

I think the Georgian cartoon is the single best thing I've seen today. 

Carl Fishman (carlfishman) says: Wouldn't there have been a Regency or Empire Helen in between?

I initially parsed that as "Helen Empire". Which I don't think is all that implausible, really. And would also be awesome.

Carl Fishman (carlfishman) says:

@Rockphed;  You may be correct about the pie chart, but I took it to be a tricorne hat myself.  Which woud be a bit more in period.  (Though I'm not sure when pie charts were invented.) 

Other great features of Regency Narbonics;  Dr. Antonio Smith asa Bow Street Runner!  Mell as a French Incroyable!  Helen as a Bluestocking!  Madblood winding up really big clockwork wooden soldiers!  The more I think about this, the more I wish that someone would do it!
