Episode 626

Read the comic here.

For those of you asking yesterday: You're just going to have to wait until February 25th to find out what happens in strip 640. No, it isn't an easter egg. I haven't even photographed the episode yet.

Long time readers will recognize the new character in today's strip from a teaser image I posted months ago. It took me that long to figure out who he was, and how he'd fit into the storyline.

Speaking of today's strip - the joke is an old one, but still a goodie.

@Chris, that's a very nice new story setting for us to have a look at. I recognize who Luka is in that slaver ship pod, but who's the other guy with the freaky looking hair?

And when do we get the current cast of BH introduced to the slaver and his slaves?

wv: cogicatu - Googling it reveals some mysterious Greek books with an almost identical spelling "cogitatu".

Geoffrey, thats Colada, The pineapple man, and I have a feeling that Darth Criossant is a certain buttery friend of ours.

I think Darth Criossant is just another character. And I think he's holding Pat too.

Geoffrey said...

I'm thinking Darth Croissant isn't Pat. Two things are very obvious here:

1. Turning Pat, who is a living butter sculpture into a mechanical croissant man is a very long and complicated process. It would be the oddest yet cross between a living organism and a non-living mechanical robot frame.

2. I do indeed think he's holding Pat, as he's also holding Luka.

BTW, Chris, when do we get to meet Lil Whiskey's sister, Mary Beth - I hope we could pass some of the time before Episode 240 meeting her?

With this webcomic, Darth Croissant (though that looks more like those 'croissant dogs' you get at those cookie/pretzel places in the mall) could be just about anyone including Pat, Mary Beth, Steve from Cola Brick, Salty-Chan, or the French Chef.

I'd prefer Duff Goldman though. ^_^

WV: pansis. What the sam-hill is a PANSIS? O_o

Dun Dun Duun!

I think it's pat, undergone a vaderesque (no, I don't care if that's not a real word) transformation. think about it... both involve fighting and heat, etc...

sophie said...

i think its the french chef

french guy = croissant

WV:menta. Kinda sounds like "manta" or "mental"

Yea but think about it, both pat and Anakin were roasted alive,Anakin needed the suit for survival, it is likely that if Pat has survived, he is Darth Croisscant, how long has pina been frozen?

Lots of new twists to pnder in this strip- Luka & Colada in the background, the mysterious Slaver Ship & it's Croissant master.

FWIW, I think Croissant Vader is Pat. Despite the lack of puns.

somesome said...

okay,i think its pat.(oh come on)
it would make sense.i mean who would have reason for slaving THOSE people.okay here are what we know and how we could relate that to pat

since he has luka he must have acsess to the vortex(pat was flown into the vortex)

he seems to be a robot/cyborg which genraly are very damaged (crosont=pat)

pat keeps coming back(or forwards if you really want to be right)

he has revenge reasons

he was melted to save luka

pina was the second choice for a new sidekick for whiskey after he was turned down

if these revenge reasons are true,he could be cooming for whiskey(gimme a break here people)

Great escaper said...

Also, with Whiskey frozen, he is easy pickings for Darth Croissant, seeing as Luka and Pina seem to be in stasis/frozen in carbonite (hey, i thought id join in the cribbin'!) already, it means less work for him to do in kidnapping Whiskey, which will probably lead to the others attempting to rescue him. If so, thats another thing Momma Foxtrot dosn't tell them.

It's a cross between Darth Vader and Gonzo!

Anonymous said...

he's probably the pilsbury doh boy ( i have no idea if i spelled that correctly.

Great escaper said...

Chris, cant you do something about that anon that is posting nothing except the wv, 14 messages with just the wv, making it very hard to see everyone elses comments

Geoffrey said...

I went and found the original blog post for Darth Croissant and it was June 24th, 2008, if anyone wants to have a look at the original blog comments for Darth Croissant.

Uncle Servo said...

I could go for a frozen Colada myself right about now...

Wait a minute, I've got it! Darth must be a BARTENDER -- he's got a drunk and a drink!
