Tuesdays and Thursdays
Nick says: sometimes I have to talk myself into sitting down and starting to draw a comic. I mean, it takes effort, when it would be waaaay easier to put on another episode of Peep Show, or read the next chapter of Finch by Jeff Vandermeer (both activities I heartily encourage, by the way). Happily, once I get going I pretty much always start enjoying myself. This strip was an excellent example -- I hadn't drawn anything in a few weeks, so I was slow to start, but once I got rolling I totally forgot about doing any of that other stuff!

So yeah, apologies for my unannounced absence last week. I was at a conference in New Zealand, where I spent the first part of the week hurriedly trying to piece together a presentation, and the second part of the week railing against the truly ridiculous cost of internet access in my hotel. Fifteen bucks for 50 megabytes?! Sheesh...

I'm back in action now, though, so hopefully we'll be back to our regular Tuesday-and-Thursday schedule. I'm starting something a little new with today's strip (I did warn you a few weeks ago!). Not sure where it's going to go, but with any luck we'll all enjoy ourselves...

The Pile is the single greatest filing system ever invented.

Creators (sockpuppetcomics) says: The Space-Time Machine is back! Hoorays! Oh, and you're back too. Yes, that is also good. Mostly because we get more Space-TimeMachine! Multiple Hoorays!
Nick Bate (nickb) says:

So you only really love me for my webcomic, huh?

I can probably live with that...

Adrian Hawley (dr_aj) says:

Glad the steady hands are back. What happened to a comic for Thursday 6th?

I'm also keen to see what happens if they promise to stop time travelling. The comic gets renamed as "Space Time Machine, The Forbidden Chronicles"?

Creators (sockpuppetcomics) says: Oh! Also: Oh! 150 strips! That's awesome! No more Tim and Herb? That's far FAR less awesome. Come back soon, Nick, don't leave us waiting for too long...
Nick Bate (nickb) says:

Aww, thanks! It is a bit sad to see Tim and Herb go, but hopefully the next thing (whatever it is -- any suggestions?!) will be just as much fun.

Or wait... what if it's *more* fun?

Oh God, the pressure!

Peter Sinkis (lothdyn) says:

I too will miss the antics of Tim, Herb and Coffee Shop Girl.  So many mysteries left unanswered... Who was Robobutler? Where did he learn to make cucumber sandwiches?

So for further ideas - want to advance the Corridor plotline in stickfigure and sci-fi comic form.  You can have witty banter ...

It automatically places itself in chronological order!

What is that guy?
