up is down

Down is up. A very intelligent, down-to-Earth african-american is president-elect of the United States and Suns of Charybdis has two new pages.

I'm sorry to equate the updating of a comic with Barak Obama's election. It just felt good to mention it again. Heck, I became a fan back in 2005 when he was on the Not My Job segment of Wait, Wait. Don't Tell Me. Really. It made me wish he was our Senator and we've got a democrat, a socialist and a guy who Dick Cheney told to "f*** yourself".

Ain't life grand?

Listening to while posting: Barak Obama on Wait Wait, Don't Tell me from 2005. with this incredibly, prescient bit by related by Peter Segal:

" No, Mr. President, it says Obama with a 'B'." said Rep. Jan Schakowsky and the president said "Obama? Never heard of him" and Rep. Schakowsky said "Oh, you will, Mr. President, you will"

You could do a lot worse than those three. Anybody who could provoke that reaction out of Cheney has GOT to be on the right track.

That was a great bit with Obama. He is obviously a person with a good sense of presence wherever he is.

Comic looks nice and it makes me hungry for more.

Life IS pretty good.

I like how you drew the Ensign that's freaking out over the power loss on the probe. Especially the profile where he's sort of yelling.

Nothing wrong at all with mention the Obama bit over and over and over again! Here's hoping the next 4 years will be better than the last 8!

And the comic is looking really great. I hope this doesn't sound underwhelming but I really love the colors. I mean I really do!

Keep up the great work!!!

I love how "suns" is set in the futuristc year of 1999!


Obama is the future so is all works!
