Smithson Thus Far... ·


Terrible fills here, but otherwise this is a pretty good page. The Martian spaceship is based on a Victorian sci-fi illustration, but now I can't remember where I found it. Sorry.

In the last panel, Dave says, "Sergeant--you're going to kill me at midnight, yes?" Again, Andrew, who is not especially fluent in Italian, did all the translations for the Martians' dialogue. We apologize for any and all inaccuracies.

Leon Arnott (l) says: It is a tad peculiar seeing the alchemical symbol for Mars (♂) as the standard of an all-female warship. But given the riches in symbolic vestments ascrib'd to the planets o'er so many centuries, an inversion of symbolic expectations is perhaps a refreshment!
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: "Qualsiasi progetto in cui perdere vostro capello e progetto male."
Amy Fiori (amy82986) says:

How long before Madblood starts killing everybody that notices that he's killing people?

Valerie Kaplan (shinyhappygoth) says: Strictly speaking, he asks if they're going to kill him at midnight.  (No, I don't speak Italian, but I am good at Latinate roots.)
Shaenon Garrity (shaenongarrity) says:

Valerie: Yes, you're right. I'll correct that.
Juan Minaya (jotaeme) says: The ship looks like the one from Verne's "Robur the Conqueror", which is kinda "Captain Nemo, but in the Air!"
