AWESOME!! Gotta love Rocket Hat!

September 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterVictoria

I find it admirable that Rocket Hat never speaks during his detainment.

September 30, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMr. Coffee Cup

this was great! but i prefer omnipresent man.

If his hat self destructed, how did he escape?

October 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterCharles

Silent but deadly

October 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMatis

RH is cool!

October 1, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterreader

Wait... if Rocket Hat's helmet self destructed, does that mean he LOST HIS POWERS?!?!?!?

October 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterPatrick

So now that his rocket hat has been destroyed is he called "The superhero formerly known as Rocket Hat"?

October 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterMatchstickman

I am somewhat disturbed by the crony's pose in the third panel.

October 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSam

If the hat has self-destructed, does this mean we won't see the Rocket Hat character any more? Or will he come back with a new hat? Or hatless?

October 1, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterjrandomlemur

just noticed the moon-man insignia. brilliant.

October 1, 2010 | Unregistered Commentermicah

LOL, love it, Scott.

The joy and curse of having thinking folks enjoy your witty comics. Sometimes we think a tad too much and a bit linearly.

Unrelated to the comic but to the website. is really laggy from where I access the comic. It looks like it is busy loading all the flashy ads before it loads your comic?

Next comic: How to deal with continuity issues in a superhero comic.

October 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterStaneslav

A resourceful hero always has a backup plan. Preferably several - and Rocket Hat has proven himself time and time again to be MacGyver-esque in his brilliant resourcefulnessness.
A possible means of escape might be to steal the ship that brought him there, during the confusion of the original Hat's self destruction (a classic move).
And a vital part of designing a self-destruct into your costume is having spares on hand, OR an uber-awesome upgrade waiting to make its debut (another classic). Oh no, friends, we have not seen the last of Rocket Hat . . . or his Hat . . .

> this was great! but i prefer omnipresent man.

But Omnipresent Man was in this comic!

October 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterOmninonymous

One of the best in a long while! A literal "lol"

October 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterS. Kyle Davis

Yes, the crony in the third panel appears to be enjoying the pleasures of a moon-girl.

October 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterJH

I'm pretty sure RH has a steady supply of hats. I'm also pretty sure that he has a torpedo hat for aquatic adventures.

October 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKent

In the event that the Rocket Hat's current hat becomes non-operational another is automatically dispatched from the Silo of Solitude and homes in on his position. That or the fabulous first appearance of Bottle-Rocket Boy!

Actually, now I'm not sure which of those I'd want to be true.

October 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterRocket Q

Now I know what costume I'm going to wear at next year's WonderCon. ROCKET HAT FTW!

October 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterBonzoGal

Could a movie be in the works?!?!?! One can only hope...that Omnipresent Man is not too good at keeping secrets, and we will find our soon enough. RH and the Temple of Dudes? Please say it is so, as I certainly will not be putting that into Google as a search term from work.

October 1, 2010 | Unregistered Commentergreymase

I really think Rocket Hat needs to be pitched to DC, Marvel, Image, or some other comic company.

October 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterTlalocW

Oh come on, people!
They destroyed the original Enterprise just to explain the new sleeker design, why can't the Rocket Hat self-destruct to save its inventor? (new design will,of course, be sillier)

October 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDee

ah yes. the return of the Moonman Chronicles. I see a book forthcoming.

October 1, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterjames yeamans

With due respect to the commenters above and the questions and speculations that they raise, I feel it prudent at this time to remind them...

The details are unimportant!

October 1, 2010 | Unregistered Commenteramona

It could very well be that talking while wearing the Hat is the trigger... would explain the silence!

October 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterPatheticBarrel

I can't believe I'm the first to point this out, but THE DETAILS ARE UNIMPORTANT!!!

October 1, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterrichroc

Oh, just noticed the 'moon - man' logo on the minion.

Now I have to re-read all the old comics to see if I missed them before. . . .

October 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterRob

Ah! There's nothing more refreshing than seeing a villainous villain totally pwned.

October 1, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterTabitha

Nice Post!!

October 2, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterData Entry Services

LOL! Wow, this one killed me! The Moon Men logo is fantastic! Whew, thanks for the laugh!

October 2, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDesade500

With the demise of his trusty hat, R.H. will be forced to adopt a new persona. Could it be...Rocket Pants? I'm already thinking of trigger words...

October 2, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterRick

I imagine rocket hat to be the bartholomew cubbins of super heroes. when his hat is removed, a bigger and more elaborate one is underneath!

October 2, 2010 | Unregistered Commenterjoseph

Eyewear on all three--coincidence? Or not!

October 2, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterSoul of Wit

My favorite part of this comic was the ad that popped up that said "Fix Your Marriage"

October 2, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterDartanion

I disagree with Moon-Minion in the last panel. Rocket Hat actually set the hat to self-destruct the moment the person wearing it says something. This is why Rocket Hat remains eternally silent, because the moment he says something wise, awesome, funny, or some combination of the above, it will immediately be offset by his head being set on fire.

October 2, 2010 | Unregistered Commentersnowyowl

i love the trigger phrase, its kinda like the code green in star trek
...and the moon men insignia is indeed awesome
@ Dee: not sillier, rocketier

October 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterYolanda

ah.... moon-man logo....just got it
sorry for being slow

October 3, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterKibi

Um, does Rocket Hat ever do anything except get captured by Emperor Ric or be judged by the Judger? And will we ever see Emperor Ric's knees again?
