Is this a surprise to everybody, or mostly just me? I was expecting a squidipus.

The dog's head?
Why?
It's everything allright with the dog.
Or? :wink:

The dog's skull is supposed to be significantly larger than normal - it is an anthropup, with human genes for intelligence wired in. Chet is quite the interesting animal.

It reminds me to a SF novell I did read once.
Olaf Stapledon "Siruis", - I hope that's also the english title.

Sirius is an intelligent dog on the level of a human being.
The married couple Mr. and Mrs Trelone decide to give Sirius a normal education together with their daughter.
Sirius suffers that he has no hands and he can't do simple things like every human.
Sirius is unique, the only one of his kind.
A wonderful book and a sad one, because of Sirus' life his lonliness and isolation.
Modern writers would create a story full of critics to the gentechs.
But this book here describes the life of an intelligent being in the companion of other intelligent beings but not to be a part of it, always a lifelong outsider.

It seems so very Ishtarian! Nope, I have no idea what that's supposed to mean.

I keep picturing a certain afro-laden scientist in that cockpit.
Two "Yay"s, one "Hey!" and an essay. Still counting.

Marla strode across the blasted sulphurous surface of Io in her mechsuit, her lunch happily wagging its delicious tail while it sat in her lap.
"This dog will be delicious once I put him into a collection container and slide the heat shields up for about ten seconds per pound," she thought as she licked her lips and tried to remember if there was enough barbecue sauce left over from the time she'd made First Contact with the Rib People of Planet Angus Prime.
Suddenly, impossibly, Marla saw the impossible: A HOUSECAT!

The structures on the surface remind me of Mirrodin.

Yaaaays! All my favorite stories have a descent into the underworld! %<

Unless we're going Gilgamesh with this. In which case... (-.-) I'll be over here admiring the fine brickwork.

One of the themes that I like best about Jen's comics is the whole transhumanism element that they have, but I've wished in the past that it would focus more on the stages that come between current day humans and super powerful near ascended beings. It looks like this story is going to focus much more on the reasonably-near-future elements of it, so I'm really looking forward to the read. :3

I knew cell phones would lead to weather effects like that.
