AWESOME!! Gotta love Rocket Hat!
I find it admirable that Rocket Hat never speaks during his detainment.
this was great! but i prefer omnipresent man.
If his hat self destructed, how did he escape?
Silent but deadly
RH is cool!
Wait... if Rocket Hat's helmet self destructed, does that mean he LOST HIS POWERS?!?!?!?
So now that his rocket hat has been destroyed is he called "The superhero formerly known as Rocket Hat"?
I am somewhat disturbed by the crony's pose in the third panel.
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?
just noticed the moon-man insignia. brilliant.
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. ad.turn.com 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.
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!
One of the best in a long while! A literal "lol"
Yes, the crony in the third panel appears to be enjoying the pleasures of a moon-girl.
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.
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.
Now I know what costume I'm going to wear at next year's WonderCon. ROCKET HAT FTW!
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.
I really think Rocket Hat needs to be pitched to DC, Marvel, Image, or some other comic company.
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)
ah yes. the return of the Moonman Chronicles. I see a book forthcoming.
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!
It could very well be that talking while wearing the Hat is the trigger... would explain the silence!
I can't believe I'm the first to point this out, but THE DETAILS ARE UNIMPORTANT!!!
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. . . .
Ah! There's nothing more refreshing than seeing a villainous villain totally pwned.
LOL! Wow, this one killed me! The Moon Men logo is fantastic! Whew, thanks for the laugh!
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...
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!
Eyewear on all three--coincidence? Or not!
My favorite part of this comic was the ad that popped up that said "Fix Your Marriage"
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.
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
ah.... moon-man logo....just got itsorry for being slow
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?
