Tux continued:
The vehicle arrives. Tux and her crew are soon met by members of the family who own the planet. Assuming that Tux is a poacher, they begin to question her about her reasons for their being on their planet. Tux explains that they are not there to steal crops but to begin and archeological dig. She also informs them that her crew would be happy to share what ever they find in the dig with the farming family. The 2 farmers don't seem to be swayed by the Tux's explanation for being there. The are about to load the whole crew on to their skiff to take them to their local base when Tux points out to them that they may want to take a look at what's coming from the sky behind them. They do, and don't care much for the sight...

Tux continued:
Tux and her crew have made it safely to the surface but they still have a long walk to where the map indicates the Stirsman ship is located (and where the Toad crashed). As they trudge through the algae farm that covers the planet, they see a vehicle in the distance. At first it looks to be headed for the crater that the Toad made, but then abruptly turns... and heads straight for Tux and the ex-slaves!

Happy Landings?

Tux Continued:
And then the Gossamer Toad Dies! And so too will it's crew if they don't get to the surface soon. The space packs on their backs are made for simple space navigation and not for landing from high altitudes. Jack, being the heaviest of the crew, runs out of fuel the quickest, but Ptol's pack has some to spare, so they all make it to the surface of the planet in one piece.

If you can't stand the heat...

With the asteroid shield gone, the Toad starts to superheat... but Tux's crew is prepared. The are already suited up and escape the ship as it heads toward the planet surface and it's final landing. Tux looks back and sheds a tear for the little ship that that was her home.

Readers Digest

Because of overwhelming demand (both of the people who look at this site asked for it!), I am going to give little bits of the Tux story in a format that I can sort of keep up with. This won't be a daily thing, but just something that I will do as I have time and the inclination.

So, when we last saw our heroes, they had made a hole in an asteroid for a mysterious purpose. That purpose was to make an ablative shield for the Toad so that they could safely enter the planet's atmosphere. But as they enter the atmosphere, cracks form in the asteroid and it breaks apart!

Stay tuned for what happens next!

I'm back!

Crunch is done, the holidays are done and I'm back here to post things... I just don't know what I'm going to post. I do know that I have no hope of posting on a daily basis, and that I don't think I have the energy reserves to produce an on-going strip.

Instead, I'm going to just post drawings that come to mind... at least for the time being. Today's post is the invitation I made for my Daughter's sleep over party.
