Quick -- a Distraction!

I'm a bit busy today, so enjoy this poorly scanned illustration of an adventuring party aboard the starship Warden until I get back.

  1. Hey, why does the guy with the Larry Wilcox haircut get to be the leader just because he's human? Look at that coward, hiding behind the robot!

    I say give the command color ring to bird girl!

  2. The muties are just waiting for the robot to get sent on an errand. Then they will kill "pretty boy" and take his stuff.

  3. that's EXACTLY why he's the leader! He knows to stay behind the bullet-bait robot

  4. No, no, no - you're all wrong.

    The human is pretending to have arrested the robot. Once they get to the Warden's bridge - it should only take them a week of walking since the elevators are probably out and the only accessible stairs are in the "Tropical Jungle" part of the level and guarded by talking, ray-gun wielding hyenas who consider the stairs to be the literal Path to Heaven and so who therefore wouldn't want to let non-hyenas use them - then they can rescue Princess Leia. It's a brilliant plan.

    That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

    I have been repeatedly informed here and elsewhere that Dave Sutherland was a terrible artist, so your appreciation (and mine) of his work is the result of nostalgia, old age, false consciousness, a general lack of esthetic sense, or some combination of these. Please report to the nearest re-education center to be cured of such badthink. ;-)

  7. I think the human is trying to get the others in a nice arrangement for a group portrait. "OK, Robbie Robot... you stand right here... Tinkerbell, would you like to flutter over Robbie's right shoulder? Sleefus, you are pretty, tall, so we will put you in back..."
    The short mutant is wondering if this jerkin makes his butt look big.
    And I agree with Deogolf --- any day with a little Sutherland in it is better than a day without.

  8. Actually, I take the shot to be a pre-action view: the human leader lays a cautious hand on the security robot's shoulder, while the rest of the party look around for an ambush!

  9. It actually refers to a really corny joke that's popular on the starship Warden: So, a human leader with a security robot and three mutated humans walk into a bar...
