Eponymous Monk #18

(click image to iToast)


For those who think I'm testing your patience, this strip is the start of a fun little sequence that will hopefully prove more interesting.  The last panel, like the one from two strips ago, also is a reference to one of the original plot points, from the original introduction of Oswald and yes, his footstool-shaped robot, the concept of probability, or rather improbability.  Because as in the happiest fiction, improbable developments are a matter of course.  Soon there will even be an oblique reference to Vladimir Putin!  And the New England Patriots!  If you ask real nice, I'll explain that when it comes up...

Does it have to do with the Heart of Gold ship?

Tony Laplume said...

I never did come up with a signature ship like that. Perhaps in the forthcoming third act that will hopefully start in May.

DAVID WALSTON said...

I just see the word "probability" and it makes me have a brain fart.

Tony Laplume said...

No, that's Zaphod doing that.

Pat Dilloway said...

Wait, there's a plot? If we're talking Putin and the Patriots you're probably referring to when Putin stole Patriots owner Robert Kraft's Super Bowl ring.

Tony Laplume said...

Spoiler alert, Mr. Dilloway!

I have to go back and read the rest of these so this makes sense to me

Al Diaz said...

AH! so the goat has a client for this case. I bet she had seducing eyes, sultry voice and silky beard.

Tony Laplume said...

Nigel, I hope it does make sense!

Al, you are surprisingly close...

M. J. Joachim said...

I must admit, it's curious.

Tony Laplume said...

M.J., it's very curious indeed...

I'm still so confused, and I have three pages of notes so far so I can try and keep up.

I feel like I'm back in college, LOLOL...

Tony Laplume said...

It's all going to make perfect sense by the end of the year! Probably!
