Is this straying toward politics?Certainly, I would lead Rocket Hat to any one of our elected officials, and I think I'm not alone.
Conceptually, I like where Dee is going there. It'd be nice if we could at least vote on the sequence.
After you finish your next novel, I think you should get to work on a comic book about the Adventures of Rocket Hat and the rest of his crime-fighting team.
First he doesn't speak, now he doesn't even appear. Soon Rocket Hat's name will come up and the Moon Emperor will just beat himself up. I think it was Sun Tzu who said any fool can hit the enemy, but the wise man convinces Rocket Hat to make the enemy hit himself. Or something like that.
The title of this blog entry is "Now to maintain your authority", as if BI has moved on from HOWTOs to the next step in the plan.
The url and page title is "Now to..."
"Rocket Hat" is far more chantable than "Emperor of the Moon," unless we are talking Gregorian chant, but that just gets awkward if you are carrying someone on your shoulders. I'm also ashamed to say that I only now realized that the second-in-command has an alter ego in the regular BI universe. How have I missed this for so long?!
Dee, there is no elected official on earth to whom I would NOT lead Rocket Hat, nor after whose savage beating I would NOT carry Rocket Hat on my shoulders, alone if need be, chanting his name joyously.
Am I the only one who thinks the Emperor deserves a small win? He tries to live up to his role for his people, he's just really really inadequate.
Lord, I'm slow. I just realized that Rocket Hat, with only one pose, is actually an Inaction Hero. He-Who-Strikes-Secondhand.
Love the strip, Scott!

Oh doG, I hope so Dee...
And so ends the less than august reign of the Moon Emperor.
Except if he has access to the same magic inter-episode reset button that Captain Janeway seems to have employed so often.
Those fingernails seem very impractical.
In other news, it appears Cthulhu took his drysuit back
I say we vote rocket hat for president.
