There is something curiously undefined here, but I’m sure Unearth’s astute readership knows what’s going on.
Up into a new dimension? Without a gallery it won’t be much fun. But even more earth-shattering than that doubtful landing is the raised voice of Mr. Godfrey. Where do we come to if butlers resemble ordinary human beings? Shocking!
The necessity of shouting into the speaking tubes was established in the prologue: http://unearthcomic.com/unearth-prologue-page-51/ & http://unearthcomic.com/prologue-page-52/
And here I thought that had been done only for comedica efeect and you were actually setting up this scene 3 years in advance! Hat tip!
need to be able to edit my comments after posting 🙁
I could edit it for you, but I think the second post adds to the “comedic effect”.
(Sadly, allowing visitors to edit their posts would require a commenter login and registration process, which tends to discourage commenting.)
Not sure if your setup allows it, but some sites seem to be able to allow *both* “Guest” commenters and registration, with only the registered users being able to fix their embarrassing typing errors. Not that I expect you spend time trying to figure out how to do that just so I look less stupid 😉
Perhaps they fell in all 4 dimensions of space-time.
To the place where Her Highness reigns.
Or maybe that’s just some wishful thinking of one ignorant reader who’d like to meet her again on these pages. 🙂
You’re very correct, JED, there has been 4 dimensional space-time travel that will deliver the gang into the realm where Her Highnesss reigns! Of course, it’s ordinary forward movement through space time 🙂
Wait, I saw this TV show! They were in a raft and there was this big earthquake and they fell down a waterfall into another universe, and there were dinosaurs, and lizardmen! No Frenchmen, though.
Philo, Alice and Charlie
On a routine expedition
Made the greatest driller ever known
High on his own ego
Roddy sabotaged the machine
And plunged them down a thousand feet below
To the Land of Recycled IP
Recycled or not, I just love the plot.
Oh, and if you are planning on doing some really cool character development: please don’t change Alice. (I really love her for being like me.)
You attack people with axes?!
Note to self: do NOT upset JED! 🙂
NOW I HAVE THAT TUNE STUCK IN MY HEAD! ARRRGH! Thanks a lot!
(Why can I remember the words and tune to a TV show I haven’t seen in 30+ years but not where I left my keys?)
At least it’s not the SpongeBob Squarepants Themesong. My adult kids were arguing about the lyrics… I was able to settle it by singing it perfectly… 🙁
Who trapped friends and family under the ground?
No one as evil has yet to be found
If hollow earth nonsense be something you wish
Then give a lizardman a big sloppy kiss
M i s t e r G o d f r e y
And it ends with the Captain pretending to play his sword like a piccolo….
Poor Philo seems to be stuck in an entirely different conversation than the rest of the room (which is to say he’s saying one thing and they’re all hearing something else). I suspect that happens to him a lot. Sadly, the only person around smart enough to understand him is probably his fratricidal brother. Actually, now that I think of it, that happens to me a lot also. (The part about nobody understanding what I’m saying, not the part about my siblings trying to kill me)
What are you trying to day?
Same thing I try to do every day Thorin: Trying to take over the world!
(author’s cue here to do a Unearth version of the Pinky & The Brain theme song) 🙂
Welcome back to Unearth: Everyone dies edition
Not everyone: we still have everyone’s favorite character Roddy left alive!
Reviewing the past several years of Unearth, as try to do at least once a week, noticed your comment of Novemeber 24, 2014:
mvandinte: ‘Well, besides “poison dagger” I also have an eye out for the opportunity to use “Et tu, Brute?” and “You don’t need a license to drive a sandwich.”’
As of the last panel of this week’s strip, you have now fulfilled 2 of your 3 life’s goals! Now you just have to work that sandwich remak in somehow and you’re done.
“You don’t need a license to drive a sandwich”? How on Unearth am I going to manage to work that one in? The mind boggles.
While checking on the status of the crew, Philo discovers that John Montagu, 7th Earl of Sandwich, has also stowed away on board the ship. After that, I’m sure it will come up in conversation somehow, I’ll leave the rest up to you. 🙂
