Episode 342

Read the comic here.

Today we get a better look at Science Guy's lab - the set is a bit deeper than the one Ian uses, but I had that huge teleporter prop to fit into view...

Stretch isn't quite right, there's more than half the team left. Two members of the S-Team who didn't bother to show up at the lab: Stallion and the Scarlet Swordmistress. You can blame that fact on my being too lazy to build them just to cram them into the background.

That said, I'm sure I will take the time to build them so they can be in the background tomorrow.

The first draft of this had Science Guy's final line as "You should learn to trust in the AWESOME POWER OF SCIENCE!", but once I decided on the teleporter's sound effect, the repetition was just too much. His new final line reads like something a real-world techie might say to a co-worker who just doesn't get how things work. I imagine Science Guy has to dumb down his explanations quite a bit for Stretch.

You should move Science Guy's speech bubble down a bit in the fourth panel, It looks like Silence is saying that.

Good point - I just changed the voice bubble out to make it more clear that Science Guy is speaking.
