For an utterly unending nothingness…
it has a lot of debris and collateral damage
floating around doesn’t it?
And poor Thekki.
Waking up on a cold slab like that
after only a few hours of peace.
I think he’s taking it very well
Dwarves don’t like flying… at all.
They prefer to have their feet firmly
planted on the ground.
Flying in space is even worse!
As you might expect most strongholds
don’t have many pilots as a result.
And the few lunatics who become one
often limit themselves to very controlled
short distance flights.
Imagine how our short friends must feel…
Trapped in a tin can floating
through unending nothingness.
The last page for the first chapter!
I have to be honest and say I’m honored to hear people still
remember how the story goes (albeit very roughly) after all these years.
There are so many comics on the web these days
and readers can easily get swamped by the many stories and characters
that fly by on a daily basis.
It’s a real privilege to still be remembered years later in this cacophony
I’m also very glad to hear that readers are eager to see what’s coming next.
We’re just getting started…
On to the next chapter we go!
And so we’re already nearing the end of the first chapter.
Originally containing 30 comics but after combining
the old comics into full page spreads we’ll end up
with 20 comics.
Meaning I squeezed in 5 full pages of extra material in there!
I really hope it makes the story much more enjoyable to read.
And of course I couldn’t help myself and added some big bottom
comments in there as well…
You can’t have a dwarven comic without chunky behinds.
Don’t face a horde of alien bugs with only an axe.
No matter how cool the axe might be!
Don’t ever throw a gun at someone like that.
I don’t care how impatient you are…
Have a nice day!
It’s No Shave November so of course

Apologies for the late update.
Wanted to make some last minute changes.
And still not completely happy with this comic…
But that’s a reoccurring experience when you’re
cursed with creative urges.
Ah well, such is life.
And drawing dwarves from unusual perspectives.
This is, yet again, one of those comics
that seemed easily enough to convert
into a full page setup.
But because of the unusual panel size
became quite challenging.
I could also have cut up the old panel
but that didn’t feel right.
And before you’re wondering
where Brokk left his gun…
I didn’t just forget it.
Crispy bug meat.
Low in fat but high in fiber.
With that unmistakable smoky
Now two for the price of one!
What if Thekki and Valya didn’t reach the docking bays at that exact moment?
If the big alien wasn’t distracted by them and didn’t turn just long enough
for Brokk to get a headshot at the right angle?
Could they have held out long enough to get in their ship?
They might be all cool and calm about it…
but what if they were on the point of being overrun?
The untold stories are often the most fascinating aren’t they?
I finally did it!
When doing the original lower panel I wanted to add
a little sneaky bug somewhere but never got around to it.
It might be a little late… but he’s there!
Sneaking about unnoticed.
Defiling the watchful ancestor visages
with his presence.
The little bastard!
