Preview of next comic, which will be up after lunch Friday, my time. I didn’t want to spoil too much in the BW version. So this should tantalize you.
As the Dragon Doctors always seem like one big family anyway, they remind me of the line marriages in some of Heinlein’s books 😀
Thinking of that, DD has kind of the same feel as those books.
I’ve heard about those but never read one. Maybe it’s time I should.
The line marriages are in The Moon is a Harsh Mistress – that’s not a bad place to start when flipping through Heinlein’s bibliography. My favorites of his books that I have read are probably The Star Beast, Starman Jones, Podkayne of Mars, Double Star, and The Door Into Summer; Space Cadet and Farmer in the Sky was a bit shallower, and Starship Troopers, Have Spacesuit–Will Travel, and Farnham’s Freehold were a bit weird, but they were all enjoyable as well.
Except maybe Farnham’s Freehold. That was really weird, come to think of it.
And all of them are at least a little weird — Heinlein was an odd duck, to be sure.
But yeah, those are the Heinlein novels I’ve read. Assuming that I haven’t read Orphans of the Sky, which I might have, but I’m not sure.
In my judgment, Heinlein’s worldbuilding is probably as good as or better than Speedball’s, but his characters aren’t as rounded.
DAM YOU PREVIEWS! You tease, makes me wanta see the full thing, which is there evil plan.
