Rocket-hat speaks!!!

Note from Scott: Yeah, as we Star Wars/Star Trek fans like to say, "That's not canon!" Lets just assume Omnipresent Man was speaking from inside Rocket Hat's mouth.

Rocket Hat doesn't talk. This man is an imposter!

July 21, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterdande313

*GASP* Rocket Hat speaks?!

July 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterNH

Seriously though, thats funny. "Too late" Indeed

July 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterChrono180

July 21, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterdave

Was this the first time Rocket Hat spoke? Good thing this is non-canon

July 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterCortJstr

Is that the first time Rocket Hat Man has spoken?

July 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterNick

Yup - I chuckled, and I visited your site. Good one.

We finally get to here Rocket Hat speak and learn that Rick is a cross-dresser. Pretty impressive.

July 21, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterGregory Bogosian

I propose that Rocket Hat didn't talk, but had words put in his mouth by the Ventriloquisitor, who crusades against injustice by faking confessions from the criminals.

July 22, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterInnominate

Hahaha! Only 1 comment so far that's not about Rocket Hat talking...

July 22, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterPatrick

Whither Rocket Hat?

Wow, you've got legit newspaper comic artists guesting now? You're moving up in the world, Mr. Meyer

July 22, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJared

Nicely done!
Captures, the ziethsomethingorother of Basic Instructions.
Next: Charles Schultz.
Wait, what?

July 22, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterStefing

That's not Rocket Hat speaking just look carefully. It's the hat.......

July 22, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterPhilster

Love it Scott (?), Tim (?).

July 22, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMike Geordie Brown

Oh I see it. It was Omnipresent man who talked and it looked like it came from Rocket hat, seeing how he's Everywhere. Plus I don't remember Rocket Man having a wife.

July 22, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJake

This had everything, Scott taking advantage of someone, insulting Rick and outrage. And done in the BI style. Good guest comic.

July 22, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJeff

Perfect fourth panel! By making Rocket Hat speak Tim left quite a mess to clean up!

July 22, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJim

Good thing this isn't canon, or else we'd have to re-cannonize him! With a cannon!

July 22, 2011 | Unregistered Commenterjh

Great guest strip.
It really captured the flavour of BI.

July 22, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSimon

*sniff* This is obviously 'expanded universe' Basic Instructions. Doesn't count!

I will stab you if you let Kevin J. Anderson write in the world.

July 22, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterTheTick

Very nicely done. You fit well into the BI style.

July 22, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMark

hehe, I do love the mess a guest makes! Yes, I too did a bit of a gasp and double take to see words coming from Rocket Hat.

July 22, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterAC

He did not speak ! I was there ! I heard nothing!
-Omnipresent man.

July 22, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJames Yeamans

I'm looking forward to the "Family Circus" cross-over.

July 22, 2011 | Unregistered Commenteranonymous

Rocket hat finally speaks and all he does is bitch about his wife? Men!

July 22, 2011 | Unregistered Commentermaribethann

Perfect crossover/guest artist strip. I've been a BR fan for a long time so this was great to see.


July 22, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterDave

And I thought that I'd be the only one who mostly noticed that Rocket Hat spoke... then I read the comments.

Silly me. Silly, silly me.

July 22, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterOddtail

Welcome back Scott!

July 22, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterSolak

Well said, Jeff! Great guest spot- Tim really channeled the spirit of Scott.... all 4 panels are pure win. :-)

July 22, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJen

What's a takover? </pedantic>

July 22, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterDaniel Lyons

I also think the hat can talk.

July 22, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterHyphen de Plume

It felt like a Basic Instruction!!

Nicely done Tim.

July 22, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterBonhomous


July 22, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterJ P

Nice guest strip! I love the combined art styles and the fact that Tim seems to understand the BI fans as well as Scott's twisted mind.

......I was trying really hard not to say anything since it's all been covered, but.... Rocket Hat doesn't speak! Yes, that was probably the hat itself. After all, he was just insulted. Thank you. I feel better now.

July 23, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterVictoria

Rocket hat didn't speak, the actor who plays him was speaking.

July 23, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterKevin

surely it's the cartoon actor that plays Rocket Hat, who is speaking out of character...
