I am compelled to point out that the copyright is set as 2013! As you well know it is now 2014! Something most people won't notice because they are not copyright experts like myself.
Sorry. I had to.

At least he didn't go up in flames. Small victories.

It's 2014: I want my blimp pack.

Gotta love Rocket Hat! Someday I'll be him for Halloween.

Also: did I miss the Nth Annual "Scott Explains the Copyright Date and Why It Will Still Read Last Year's Date" post?

Good Gods! What happened to Rocket hats hands?!

January 2, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterCamden

Camden: GLOVES. GLOVES happened to his hands.

Oh, I see... I couldn't tell on this little netbook screen. It looked like his arms ended in stumps.

They do, the gloves are very slimming.

Oh, the Lunarity!

You could probably solve the copyright date dilemma by not including a copyright notice in the image at all, since it hasn't been required by US copyright law since 1989 (when the US switched to using international copyright law), and since there's a second copyright notice at the bottom of the webpage anyway.

However, if you've moved to an offshore oil platform without notifying your readers, please disregard my suggestion and continue following the copyright laws of your local questionably-sovereign principality. Also ask the prince of Sealand to do another AMA on Reddit when you see him.

Does anyone else get the feeling Rocket Hat lets the moon men capture him, just so he can administer those vicious beatings?

January 3, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterThe Other Mike

You know, after seeing him get viciously beaten over and over, I'm beginning to sympathise with the dear old Moon Emperor. After all, he is right, we do squander our greatest resource, Gravity, so really he's just trying to help us. Curse you Rocket Hat!

Panel 3 made me proper LOL. Excellent strip!

Does that law still say "1989"?

I read that as "pimp black" at first, I thought this was going ina completely different direction...

January 3, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterHoju

Big gas bag.

Dammit, I stayed up to refresh the page so I could be first in the annual date comment whine, but I forgot to check Basic Instructions until just now today...

January 3, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterPatrik

@The Other Mike: I always assumed it was how Rocket Hat's alter ego dealt with the stress of his life; viciously beating a Moon Emperor seems highly cathartic. Heck, I feel better just for seeing the aftermath.

January 3, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterSimpler Simon

I wonder if the Emperor of the Moon is just a masochist...

January 3, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterThe Chosen One

I can't help but wonder... are there moon-women? Or is the moon like the transformers' cybertron?

January 3, 2014 | Unregistered Commentertom

Copyright date's wrong, Scott. Get with the program.

January 3, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterRick

Re: The copyright jabs.

This is what Scott gets for letting everyone know something he finds annoying.

Unless its a bluff, and it doesn't bother him at all, and he's tricked everyone into commenting on that instead of something else he finds even more annoying!

Hmm, now what could that be...

January 4, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterMatt

I'm beginning to suspect the Moon Emperor's minion is secretly Rocket Hat's minion.

January 4, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterLleu

Ahh, the first 2013 of 2014, combined with the first Rocket Hat/Moon Emperor hijinks of the year as well. Truly a great comic.
