I wonder if Rocket Hat actually agreed to the plan. Then again, I suppose this is what they mean by "silence implies consent"...
I love the evolving saga of Rocket Hat. I'll have to go through and find the names of each Rocket Hat comic just so I can read them in order.
Panel 3 poses, FTW.
Panel 4 the Moon-Emperor looks unnervingly like Ghadaffi.....
Oh yeah... FRIST! in my universe anyway
Oh, Rocket Hat, always making the Emperor of the Moon look a fool. You!
How dearly I love Rocket Hat...
That's the best kind of weapon. The human wrecking ball. Also...first!? What what!
Panel Two is pure gold! :D
This one is awesome you defiantly got your comic making mojo back!
Rocket Hat is amazing, but I think it's time we gave props to the real star of the show: Emperor Rick, you make it all happen. *applauds*
Am I the only one who makes a little ritual out of reading this comic?
1. cup of soda2. salty preferably fried snack3. absolute silence in my house
drink a sip read a panellol if called fortake a bite of snack
read the next panelrepeat until finished
Also, the MOON SHALL RISE AGAIN!!!!!!
Ahhh, prevailing through acts of horrifying violence, just like all the great heroes. How long before Hollywood comes knocking. I for one would go see 'Rocket Hat - The Motion Picture'.
You know.. if Rocket Hat is awesome, and I don't doubt he is... how do they capture him? And leash him, encase him in concrete, mock him? Unless.. thats part of his plan? Like a backwards supervillian who starts badly but ends well?
"If they accept, I am cool with that"
Several great lines:
"Interstellar Battle Zappelin" "Prevail, through and act of horrifying violence"
I cold use one an Interstellar Battle Zappelin right now...it would liven up Friday in the office because I would prevail through an act of horrifying violence!
There needs to be a Rocket Hat cartoon. He just prevails too much to ignore an animated account of his adventures. And the Emperor of the Moon is the baddest villain since Magneto.
Goddamn I love me some Rocket Hat!
Obviously Rocket Hat always plans for exactly what happens. There's a plan laid out in his house where he decided he wanted to use the emperor as a human wrecking ball!
Ooh, I want to see the awesomeness that is an interstellar battle zeppelin!
Does Rocket Hat ever speak?
How the hell does Rocket Hat keep getting captured? It's obviously deliberate... he's mocking the Emperor with every single thing he does.
Great visual on the wrecking ball.
RE: Massive Interstellar Battle Zeppelin
Please ship me one (1) Massive Interstellar Battle Zeppelin, COD.
(Excellent strip today!)
I see. This calls for kron-par (Bloody interlunar war).
Who is the guy speaking for Rocket Hat in panel 2?
I just wanted to point out that since these posts are moderated- they don't show up until approved by the moderator- you guys who think you're the first to post really have no idea how many posts are ahead of you in the moderation queue. It's kind of funny to see "FIRST" after the first 5 or 6 posts, but it's starting to become less fresh.
Maybe we need to have a comic on "how to gloat effectively by posting comments regarding another's artistic work"
why are rocket hat's hands tied even though he's helping moon emperor?
Total win. Rocket hat is the best superhero that never spoke a word. He gets captured an awful lot, though, doesn't he?
I sometimes wonder why the Emperor of the Moon-Men hasn't been deposed in a coup.
I love people who claim first, don't they realise the posts are moderated? It just makes them look like dicks, too. What's so good about being first to comment if all you have to say is that you were first?
Also, great stuff, Scott, as usual!
Excellent. Love that 2nd panel. <3 Rocket Hat
Clearly Moon Emperor Rick lures Rocket Hat to the moon using "Amazon Women on the Moon" and once Rocket Hat is there he finds that The Moon Is A Harsh Mistress.
Omnipresent Man helped too
Why does Rocket Hat look like he's handcuffed in panels 2 and 3? Or was this one of those recycled images of Rocket Hat where you forgot to change that from the last time Rocket Hat and Emperor faced off?
Great strip, by the way.
@Isiah thats just dangerous, one day you will laugh so much you will break your computer with a fine mist of soda sprayed accross the screen as you LOL too much.what made me lol was posing in 3rd :D
yes I know, it has happened.
Don't those people posting about how comments are moderated know that the comments are moderated? The second comment is just tiresome... ;)
I'm surprised the Moon Emperor allowed such sly insubordination as when his Mooman henchmen describes Rocket Hat's best attribute as 'prevailing'. That's such a dig at the Moon Emperor's consistent failing.
Quality line, My Meyer, quality line.
When will we see the Titanians?
Question: are the Titanians from Titan (the moon of Jupiter) or Titania (moon of Uranus)?
or are they just merely from the planetoid Tit?
Note from scott: Since you asked, they are from Titan, which, I beieve, is the largest moon in our solar system. They hate the Moon Men because their moon is larger, yet the Moon Mens moon is called "THE Moon."
The Titanians are attacking ? Where's Omnipresent Man when you need him ?
