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

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.

True story.

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.

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?

November 19, 2009 | Unregistered Commenterscott

rofl, awesome. What else can we add guns to??

November 19, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterAnemone

Innominate : I believe that's 'Chickens in choppers' and 'COWS with guns'!!!

November 19, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterBlaxiom

Something like this happened in the novels. :)

November 19, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterSkywardShadow

Vastly increase size of mosquito, attach blasters, and you get this:

'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...

November 19, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterPatrick

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 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.

November 20, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterJordan

I hate to say it Scott, but the three comment combo ended by Gnounc made me laugh as much as the strip did.

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).

November 22, 2009 | Unregistered CommenterSteuard

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.
