IMPOSSIBLE! Unless they use a rope. - Awesome.
I don't know, Your ideas have the tendencies to be really dangerous...
Of course, elephants with guns are most powerful when supported by chickens... with guns.
Which is exactly why they won at the battle of Hoth.
Gentlemen, what is the second most deadly animal?That's right, a chicken with a gun!
oh and giant floating triangles! Can't forget about the giant floating triangles.
Which is why they were defeated on the forest moon of Endor
Which is exactly why.... nope, don't know...
Great comic Scott!!
They were actually based on the shipping crate loading cranes you can see along the docks in Oakland. The TIE's are based on the two plane catamaran's that sail around the bay too. Lucas used to spend a lot of time just hanging out on the shore.
Priceless. This will strike fear - fear and awkwardness - into our enemies.
Why didn't they put this in the Trilogy? It makes me feel all warm inside.
Brilliant! This is going to be one of my all-time favourites ...
Best strip ever. Looking forward to seeing this scene in The Empire Strikes Back - Director's Cut.
Make the soldiers armor white. "That way all the fire will be drawn away from us."
That makes SO much sense, now.
[...] Heh. [...]
In all seriousness, I think the most dangerous animal is the mosquito -- for spreading malaria. But I wouldn't base a weapon on it.
I don't normally post on forum sites... but this one was worth it. Panel 3, my new favorite basicinstructions panel of all time- I totally didn't see that coming.Nicely done.
This mosquito of yours, could it be equipped with guns?
rofl, awesome. What else can we add guns to??
Innominate : I believe that's 'Chickens in choppers' and 'COWS with guns'!!!
Something like this happened in the novels. :)
Vastly increase size of mosquito, attach blasters, and you get this: http://www.vegatransports.com.au/starwars/OTC/xwing_ywing_leaving_yavin.jpg
'Unless there's a battle in some snowy environment.''What are the odds for that?'nice, Scott. Very nice. Do you live near Nebraska? There's this fluffy white crap that falls from the sky this time of year, and i don't know what the f*ck it is . . . .

I want a shirt with a gun-wielding elephant on it...
This is my absolute favorite till date - I liked it so much that I actually made the effort to setup Gravatar for this site and make my first comment!
I want a gun-wielding elephant with a shirt on it...
I want a welding gun in the shape of an elephant with a shirt wrapped around it.
"I want a shirt with a gun-wielding elephant on it…"
And "guns don't kill people, elephants with guns kill people" under it.
I hate to say it Scott, but the three comment combo ended by Gnounc made me laugh as much as the strip did.

I join the masses of amazed readers at your genius :)
*another middle aged geek chimes in*
I loved it! That battle makes a lot more sense now!
hahaha Thanks Tom
On an entirely unrelated note, is it just me, or have most of the comics in the archive disappeared in the past few days? I'm not seeing any images earlier than Sep. 1 of this year (and that's the only one until October).
Ugh -- the database appears to be having issues, which means the category of "comics" is currently missing. Which makes the comics themselves all disappear.
Working on it. Ugh.
