NO! NOT RODNEY!!! ANYONE BUT RODNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEY!!!
I love shameless self-promotion. I only wish I had a movie/book/website to insert here.
I like living!!!

I don't believe it.
Product placement: always entertaining. And what color was Rodney's uniform? That is pertinent.
Hmm...Rik said a naughty.
This one is my new fav after "how to confound your alien captor" and the moby dick book review.
What, no one patted Rodney down for the amulet?
Brilliant! You know what DC did in this case? They left a cliff-hanger and let people vote if they wanted Jason Todd to live or die.
This one is really brilliant! Very nice! Thanks Scott.
Pheww! That was close. I wasn't even sure how the storyline would work without Rodney.
Pure fricking genius.
In a can.
Alas, poor Rodney! I knew him, Horatio.
Absolutely love it.
I bet the slaughter-bot was cool looking. Why did Rocket Hat have to destroy it? The details are unimportant!
So are the people in the strip aware of the head Moon Man's resemblance to Ric? Also, since I don't recall Rodney ever being a character before, can I assume he doesn't get no respect at all?
I'm NOT dead yet!
I read the first panel 4 times before going on, just to heighten the suspense. This is, by far, your best work.
And I love that all of the comments are anonymous on my screen right now.
Nice use of Gaussian blur
I am reminded of"NOT LENNY!"
is that mullet boss hugging someone in the bottom middle on the left? Why is he blurry? I knew he was gay.
*giggle* nothing like trying to promote your own book by saving an unknown mechanic's life.
Dammit, I was voting for Mullet Boss to kick the bucket. Either him or Armpit Flashing Guy standing next to him...
So are Rick and the Moon Men Leader now distinct characters, or has he planted himself amongst the crowd in his alter-ego form so as to throw off suspicion as to his identity?
I particularly enjoy the irony of rick among the unarmed group, moon man rick Could have killed his nonfictional self.
What book do you recommend for people who DO want to die?
Now I'm confused, I thought I had Rocket Hat's alter-ego all figured out.
Shameless self promotion since I'm only mostly dead.http://www.zazzle.com/flamingboard*
Hmm. Pages fell out of mine the first time I read it.
Rodney needs to be come a recurring off-screen character.
Wait... so this means Scott isn't Rocket Hat? And Rick isn't the leader of the Moon Men? How... how can this be? My fragile worldview as it relates to Basic Instructions has been shattered. SHATTERED I SAY!
I think there was room for Rodney to have the last line in answer to Rick's comment:
"It's all in the book"
What good is a fictional mechanic? Now a fictional accountant, that would make sense.
Okay, the whole Rocket-Hat vs the Moon Men thing is now officially awesome enough to warrant its own spin-off. I picture a Saturday morning cartoon, complete with merchandising. And then 20 years later Michael Bay will turn it into some horrendous movie franchise starring whatever the future equivalent of Shia LeBeouf is.
That's funny, I always assumed Scott was Rocket Hat, but never considered that Rick was the emperor of the Moon Men.
heheheh Brilliant =)
