What Comes Next

The War is Over. We Won.

The war is over, but This Means War has a ways to go. Novo Paolo/Bubbleopolis is still in a nebula/stellar nursery, no one knows what happened to the planet Sharen (center of the Intergalactic Council), and the status of the now-surrendered Invaders is yet to be resolved. What will they do when they learn their homeworld is basically destroyed? Will Alyss and Li be re-united? How about Diana (the real one) and Otto?

These questions will be resolved in the next few weeks, before This Means War part 3 wraps in late May.

After that, I plan to go BACK in time about 400 years, to when Alyss and Li left their home in the Sol System to colonize a new world on the far side of the galaxy. As one might expect, hijinks ensue. New subtitle yet to be determined, start date sometime in around the start of July. Stay tuned!

The Transcript For This Page

Strip 23

Panel 1
We get our first good look at the cashier, from Guy’s POV: Looking 60-ish, 168 cm tall, rail thin but with large breasts – she was probably a knock-out in her youth and still doesn’t look bad. Dark hair streaked with grey. She wears a name tag marked 'Babbette Guzmán' and a friendly smile.

Babbette: Hi sailors, new in town?

Panel 2
Looking over Babette’s shoulder at Guy. Fiorella has just reached the counter. Guy is looking confused. (For this sequence it may be best to have Babbette on the left side of the panels.)

Guy (murmers): Is everyone here named ‘Babbette Guzmán?’

Babbette (out loud): Beg pardon?

Panel 3
Three-shot of smiling Babbette, Guy, Fiorella.

Guy: Uh, yes, we’ve just arrived, but we’re not sailors.

Guy (2): We’re revenue agents for the UWRS.

Panel 4
Same shot, except Babbette’s smile has disappeared. Fiorella gives a sideways glance at Guy.

Guy: Er – can you rent us some rooms for the next week?
