Top image – detail view from Wondermark #1017!

We’ve seen the Cryo-Stor™ before, too; the second image is from Wondermark #614, “Procrastihibernation”. It was cropped by the panel borders, but there was a lot going on there in the ground-based version. Makes sense they’d streamline matters for space travel.

Exploded view of Wondermark #906, In which a Choice is forced. Took a bunch of pieces to get this pose to look the way I wanted!

Close-up view of Comic #848. I like the expressions in this one.
In an instant a hundred things went through his mind — every implication, every wrong turn those words could take, every guardrail between him and this new thing snapping in two as he blasted blithely through. Why, oh why, did he take it so fast? Now it was too late. The only thing even harder than acting natural, it seemed, was trying to act natural.

Preview of Comic #808.
Detail from Comic #799.
She had built it from scratch, each part carefully sourced and fitted just so. It was a difficult beast to manage, all fine adjustments and counter-intuitive weight distribution, but it was a challenge, and it was unique, and it was hers. Some explained how she could make it simpler, or do it a different way, but she expected that. It could be simpler, but it wouldn’t be what it was. It could be different, but then it wouldn’t be her own. It was a terrible way to get around, but at least until she tore it down for parts again, it was a real, metal, 800-lb accomplishment. She’d take the smell of smoke in her hair over the rot of unfinished plans any day.

I found this in an old notebook while looking for something else. “Hmm,” I thought. “Sure.” (The final version is Comic #794.)
Detail from Comic #780.
It felt good, letting it free. It nested just fine inside, but it was heavy, and the prominences jabbed him when he walked, so he preferred to sit. It was heavy enough that he sat a lot, rather than carry it around all the time. When it sounded, it was loud and jarring and a little bit painful, but it was good too, like peeling off a scab, or cracking a difficult joint. Stretching too far — too far — and then release. The quarter was just a bonus.
