Trying to limit Ref-Links for the current story (like "Minon Master Trained"). For this chapter I'll link when I think it's really important.
Hey all! Im a Jersey Boy, born n bred. Whereas I dont think my soil was all that radioactive, I do think parts of my town tested positive for Dioxin back in the 80s. What Im saying is I have no idea how radioactive parts of New Jerseys soil may be, but Im taking artistic license*. And I actually LIKE living in New Jersey. Must be something in the water.
*Like anyone who knows anything about Jersey can tell you, radioactive or not you WILL have to pay property taxes.
Currently any animated gif comics have not been
resized for the new archive due to it breaking the animation.
It's the "Sluggy Freelance's 17 Anniversary" Animated Strip!
(And for the record Torg was about to say "Total Hottie!")
OK, following my rule of limiting ref links in this story's comics, I will NOT be ref-linking Minion Master or Sasha. I did question the level of the rum in panel one after the art was complete, and I'm still recovering from the flu so I'll add this:
Alcohol Advisory: I am not an expert on how much 151 Rum will cause alcohol poisoning and/or death, I am only a webcartoonist. The amount in the bottle probably is too low for them to survive but perhaps you all just missed the comic I didn’t draw which shows Torg accidently tipping half the bottle out. In any case don’t drink and drive.
So remember how this story was going to go no deeper than the last Safehouse story? Never mind! ;)
Ref: Dream | Orsintos Labs.
And I haven't had time to determine whether I need to RetCon all the "Hassen"s into "Hass"s. So as of today it stays "Hassen" as German for Hate.
BUT I totally left off Gwynn's scar in the last few comics. THAT will have to be fixed!
I know I've been a little off with my German in this story but I think I nailed it on the file folder in panel 5!
In case you were wondering there were two camping-style lanterns established in the kitchen.
Ref: "A European High-School forMagic. Weird" Torg has no memory of Hoggelrynth.
I remember many of my friends sporting Flying Spaghetti Monster bumper-stickers or crocheting Flying Spaghetti Monster hats or what have you. So I thought the Flying Spaghetti Monster would make a perfect Movie-Thor parody. But when I checked with my wife and Leah, they had absolutely no idea what the Flying Spaghetti Monster is. Man, I remember when we had some cultural touchstones around here, many many moons ago. Anywho, follow the links for details. The Flying Spaghetti Monster is a anti-creationist symbol with humorous origins and has started it's own "religion." The More You Know...
You guys remember Science Guy and Captain Hippity, right?
So for today we have a panel from the Bonus Story of the upcomng Sluggy Freelance Book 14! I'm *thinking* there will be one more preiview art tomorrow and then maybe a 'Road to Björkea' catch-up comic and then Thursday and Friday will be all new comics. And then hopefully all new comics next week. Can't be sure though, not yet.
Yesterday's plan is still the one I'm going with but haven't gotten time to script yet.
So, see the "And now..." at the bottom of the page? That was because I planned on having at least a couple of panels of the next strip, but it was just not meant to be. However I hope we'll be back to our regular schedule starting tomorrow.
I think we're back in business!

*facepalm* The top of Torg's resume skill-list should be pushing Gwynn's buttons. Also, just between you and me, the kid behind Gwynn is kicking her seat.
This comic may or may not have been used a fourth-ish time as emergency filler. Just sayin...
