I don’t remember Lovelace being that pedantic. Though, Lupin IS her father.
Not only was Lupin her father but Dave was her boyfriend and I’m pretty sure he would have been appalled as well. ^_^
When you put it like that, Madblood making her look like Jennifer Connelly becomes kind of creepy—or creepier, really
THERE it is, thats the skewed priorities of the newcomer I was expecting
They are more likely to be Thagomized, than eaten by a grue…
Yeap, there’s the thagomizer on the tail of the stegosaur at the right of panel one. ^_^
Well they’re not in the dark anymore.
It’s good to have these nouns. Named, of course, after the late Thag Simmons.
Marry me, Lovelace!
Also, they don’t have feathers.
What part of “old, plaster dioramas” do you not get? This ride was probably designed some time in the fifties or something.
Either that, or they’re retro dinosaurs. You know, from the good old days before these young punk scientists with their flouncy feathered tyrannosaurs….
Aren’t all dinosaurs technically retro dinosaurs?
So we’ve got a knight, a unicorn and a virgin….. and considering that Lovelace is a nonphysical entity, unless she and her fellow AIs have figured out some interesting new code, she is ALSO a virgin. Seems to me there’s a quote from Mallory about “a virgin knight, eager to break a lance…..” **grin** We’re talking inexperience, not chastity, but still.
Man, that is such a Dave comment.
If you want a virginal female knight, try Britomart from Spenser’s Fairie Queen (1590).
She rode to war to win a new name for herself, since the old one made her sound like a failing European supermarket?
I always thought the exact same thing. Or maybe a subpar Swedish alternative to the Cuisinart?
And Bradamante in Ariosto’s Orlando Furioso (1516), on whom Britomart was based.
That always irks me, too. I blame Jurassic Park.
JP also got the sizes wrong, so that movie gets properly blamed for lots of misinformation.
Those dinosaurs look upset
Well, sure. They know they’re from different eras as well.
I <3 Britomart. So did Spenser, I think.
Gah, meant to reply to mrinku above.
That thought will be a great comfort as they rip your avatars to shreds.
They’re only avatars, so it probably won’t hurt all that much. Maybe the next set will come with a machine gun rather than a spear.
If they don’t actually want their avatars to be ripped to shreds, though, now would seem like a good time to get off the train. It’s probably going at no more than walking pace.
Britomart also shows up in “The Compleat Enchanter” by Camp & Pratt – classic fantasy stuff
Watch your language, Nick.
Golly but it’s creepy to hear him say things like Gosh Darn.
G. Willikers, you’re right! (Gerald Willikers agrees with you and says “Hi!”)
My third favorite alternate President of the United States, after Reverse-Nixon and Harlan P. Aftershave
Nice “WW” on the choo-choo.
Boy, seems like they can’t catch a brake in this world!
How is that different from the real world?
And they’re not feathered.
When I was a wee lad going through my dinosaur appreciation stage I noticed that the illustrators included numerous small bumps on the hides of the thunder lizards. At about the same time, I was introduced to the fine art of chicken preparation from coop to the table.
It did not occur to me until many years later (after it was posited that birds were dinos) that the bumps I saw on a chicken skin had exactly the same relative size and spacing as those of the illustrations.
Sometimes the obvious escapes _everybody_.
Well, I have egg on my face. I was sure there would be a subversion here somewhere.
If they can’t find a brake on the train, I’m sure one of those big monsters will provide one free of charge. Admitted, not in a way that the heroes would appreciate, what with their escape being off the tracks and all . . .
