If you enjoy my work, you owe it to yourself to check out Brewster Rockit: Space Guy, by the author of today's guest comic, Tim Rickard.
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!
*GASP* Rocket Hat speaks?!
Rocket hat talking? Heresy I say! Heresy!
Seriously though, thats funny. "Too late" Indeed
rocket hat doesn't talk! also han shot first!
Was this the first time Rocket Hat spoke? Good thing this is non-canon
Is that the first time Rocket Hat Man has spoken?
Yup - I chuckled, and I visited your site. Good one.
ROCKET HAT SPOKE?!
We finally get to here Rocket Hat speak and learn that Rick is a cross-dresser. Pretty impressive.
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.
Hahaha! Only 1 comment so far that's not about Rocket Hat talking...
Whither Rocket Hat?
THAT CAN NOT BE CANON.
Wow, you've got legit newspaper comic artists guesting now? You're moving up in the world, Mr. Meyer
Nicely done!Captures, the ziethsomethingorother of Basic Instructions.Next: Charles Schultz.Wait, what?
That's not Rocket Hat speaking just look carefully. It's the hat.......
Love it Scott (?), Tim (?).
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.
This had everything, Scott taking advantage of someone, insulting Rick and outrage. And done in the BI style. Good guest comic.
Perfect fourth panel! By making Rocket Hat speak Tim left quite a mess to clean up!
Good thing this isn't canon, or else we'd have to re-cannonize him! With a cannon!
Great guest strip. It really captured the flavour of BI.
*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.
Very nicely done. You fit well into the BI style.
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.
He did not speak ! I was there ! I heard nothing!-Omnipresent man.
I'm looking forward to the "Family Circus" cross-over.
Rocket hat finally speaks and all he does is bitch about his wife? Men!
Perfect crossover/guest artist strip. I've been a BR fan for a long time so this was great to see.
OUR NEW RUG! lol
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.
Welcome back Scott!
Well said, Jeff! Great guest spot- Tim really channeled the spirit of Scott.... all 4 panels are pure win. :-)
What's a takover? </pedantic>
I also think the hat can talk.
It felt like a Basic Instruction!!
Nicely done Tim.
ROCKET HAT SHOULD NOT SPEAK!
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.
Rocket hat didn't speak, the actor who plays him was speaking.
surely it's the cartoon actor that plays Rocket Hat, who is speaking out of character...
