Escape Attempt

Written by Vic on . Posted in

So now we see how the EVR system works! EVR stands for Extra-Vehicular Rescue.  Basically, if you’re ejected into space, you can use the boots to give you a propulsion boost and the grappling hook to attach yourself to a ship of some kind.  It’s a hail Mary sort of system, but it’s better than drifting in space till you freeze to death!  And yes, I know, Zik doesn’t have a face mask on — he doesn’t always wear it.  When we get into some real space combat scenes you’ll see the face mask part of Zik’s costume.  It’s a bit like what fighter pilots wear today. Hey, have you been following Adam Black’s Silk And Honey western webcomic? If you have (and you should!) you may be aware that Adam has been having site issues.  Those are solved now!  I set up some new digs for him over at http://silknhoney.departure-productions.com and now you can see the comic as Adam originally intended! Update your bookmarks! And if you haven’t yet read this brand new western with monsters and babes, what in tarnation are you waiting for, pilgrim?! Lastly, I’d like to share this, which I posted to the Zik Facebook page yesterday.  Soon, humanity will be on more than one lonely, pale blue dot.

The Kaboom

Wow, that clonoid is all over the map! Or, as Raven said when he saw this: “I wouldn’t be caught DEAD being that guy.. but that guy would!”  The previous two statements have been condemned by the Clonoid Rehabilitation League Local 4102. Over in Silk N’ Honey, the carriage driver is taking off in a panic after hit pal was shot. And a new friend of Zik, Phineus Magician For Hire, is currently telling the tale of a lady being magically impregnated with a goddess by a Cthulu cult! Scary!

Surrounded

Well Zik, it looks like you’re outgunned and completely surrounded.  So are you going to submit to the Queen, or is there a way out of this? The action is picking up over on Adam’s Silk N’ Honey! We’ve met Silk, and the sniper has just unleashed his lead fury on the coach she’s riding in! What’ll happen next?!

Screeching Halt

Things seldom go as planned. There was supposed to be an earth-shattering kaboom, but alas, the helicopter is still there. And now, someone seems to have gotten the drop on Zik! Perhaps that’s why the helicopter stopped shooting long enough for Zik to return fire?

Zik is a man of action, and a gallant one at that! Even when dodging bullets from a hostile helicopter-thing, he’s all about the chivalry and Galactic Action Hero charisma. Since Zik is about humanity colonizing space, I thought it would be appropriate to share this project with you: Would you go to Mars knowing you’ll never come back? It’s tempting, and it’s exactly what the Zozians did in this comic.  For more information, the Mars One project’s website is here.
