Comic 45 - Burdock farming for punishment

Burdock farming for punishment
Ahaspar narrates.
Ahaspar: From the punishment planet of Cemomard. I was doing hard time at a burdock plantation for not paying my student debt. I quickly got fed up with the monotonous labour and decided to split the first chance I got... Opportunity knocked when Drago 'Dustbin' Inkewic stopped by on Cemomard... His intention was to have a few prisoners carrying out routine repairs on his spaceship 'The Cathedral'...
Ahaspar is shown inside the spaceship with a toolbox. The bridge is a jumble of workstations crammed into a tiny space.
Ahaspar: It's always the same with those single-person ships: no rhyme or reason to anything.
Ahaspar narrates: ...But I ended up alone on the ship with no guards. I identified the main console, sat down and hardwired the engine.
Ahaspar at the console: Go, you bastard! Go!

In Xkolp's room. Ahaspar continues her story with Xkolp listening.
Ahaspar: And wooosh! There I went. If I'd known that the psycho-technical stabilizers were busted...
Ahaspar, still in her underpants, rifles through a closed of shirts in Xkolp's room. Xkolp looks down at his stomach, which is groaning.
Ahaspar: You gotta laugh, though. Dustbin crossed half the galaxy, only for me to steal his spaceship!
SFX: Groan
Xkolp: How about I fix us dinner?

The X!Gloop updates are following one another more quickly now. The reason is that I'm doing sort of a challenge to myself to have an update up every day for a month, across the many different comics that I do on ComicFury. Since my 20-year-old self did a lot of the heavy lifting, adding X!Gloop into the mix normally helps make this challenge easier. However, this time, my 45-year-old self had to redraw three panels from scratch and make significant changes to other ones.

Here's how the update challenge works:

Every Tuesday and Saturday, Rogues of Clwyd-Rhan updates according to a fixed schedule, being in reruns/remasters. I have just completed a series of pages with extensive rework; from here on until September, very little extra work will be needed to keep up with this schedule (but I must plan ahead for September).

Nothing else will be on a fixed schedule. I have nine episodes of AbĂși's Travels ready to go and plan to run those on Mondays and Fridays, but if gaps in the schedule form in any given week, I may schedule more of these comics that week and run out of ready-to-go episodes faster.
The Lives of X!Gloop and Spun Off (warning: sexually explicit content including Goblin phallus) will fill most of the rest of the week, but there may be the occasional one-pager for White House in Orbit popping up.

And I may add trial pages for new comics into the update mix! However, that will be a last resort as the aim of the exercise is to clear out half-finished work that is still on my desk and wrap up existing projects to make room to focus fully on those new ones.

Tomorrow's update will be on AbĂși's Travels and will be another off-schedule update..
