Far Out There: Incentive & Patreon Gallery

Far Out There: Incentive & Patreon Gallery

by Blitzkrieg1701
Far Out There is a SciFi/Comedy webcomic that's been running for years now, and not just on SmackJeeves. Along with all that main comic, there have also been many, MANY side comics published as Voting Incentives on Top WebComics, and more recently on Patreon. Until recently, the only way to go back and view these older comics was to root through an awkward list of Photobucket links, but NO MORE! At long last, this page will host all the stray comics in one convenient place, making your Far Out There experience complete!

A whole mess of random character concept doodles (I had to edit out a BUNCH of spoiler-y notes here)
In Far Out There, of COURSE even robot soldiers look like cute little kids (well, some of them anyway)
The future will see exciting advances in the fields of sleeves and shoulderpads.
A bonus cookie to whoever can remember where we've actually seen some of these characters already!
Oh, just what this comic needs; another sciency character
Oh look! I wonder who THIS silly little goofball will turn out to be?
See you in your next overdue update, guys!
Parting is such sweet sorrow
No ride lasts forever
Of COURSE a true Nitpicker's first though when confronted by an actual extraterrestrial would be to have it critique some scifi tropes.
Bridget needs to show off in this Incentive because she got unintentionally covered up in today's comic
The TRUE main character of this comic
I have a sneaking suspicion Becky self-published this magazine
Yeah, I'm not even TRYING to come up with a plot excuse for the cute drawings right now
Okay, so this is the last page... but it originally wasn't supposed to be. Believe it or not, my original plan had been to end this whole thing on the PREVIOUS page, which would have been effective in a certain way, but waaaaaay too dark for Far Out There. We needed some kind of denouement to (a) confirm with our own eyes that Pattie did NOT actually murder Mooney and (b) include at least a little bit of humanizing material to balance out the more horrifying bits. Thankfully, the sheer number of pages and intense exhaustion meant I had to post things in chunks, which gave me time to realize the flaws of that ending and tack on one more page... probably the only possible situation where adding ANOTHER page would actually have helped rather than make things worse.

Again, I cannot stress enough how there will NEVER be another Far Out There MadLib comic as long as this one, or overstate how badly the need to recover from this screwed up the schedule of all the other Patreon comics. Thankfully, I think I've worked out some more effective forms of self-discipline... and more importantly, I've gotten burned out enough on OTHER things that the thought of doing more MadLibs finally feels like an exciting escape from the norm again. So I'm gonna do another one, and you can get in on it! If you pledge at least $5 a month on Patreon, you'll receive the brand new Far Out There MadLib, just waiting to be filled in, sometime next week. Write your completed version in the comments, and I'll post a set of comments based on the winner for everyone to see! Well, everyone who's donating, that is (Remember, it's $5 to submit something, but anyone pledging anything, even just $1 a month, will get to read the comics when they're done)
BEWARE THE QUIET ONES

...actually, what am I saying, "quiet"? Pattie hasn't shut up this whole time. Look at how huge the speech bubbles are in this page. That's not by design. I was just so used to leaving space for HUGE GOBS OF PATTIE DIALOG that I automatically drew them five sizes bigger than the page required.
Again, I can't imagine why Layla and Pattie don't have a better relationship. She's clearly GREAT with kids!
And that's another reason why this was such a tricky set of comics to write: I knew Pattie was gonna go on this self-satisfied rant about the narrative she'd constructed, which meant I really, REALLY had to make sure I didn't slip and have somebody say something contradictory. Few things are more obnoxious than a story that pats itself on the back for being clever, even as the reader can plainly see a place where it screwed something up.

But yeah, I truly am proud that I was somehow able to squeeze an entire epilogue for The Killer Station of Deadly Doom into a comic about detective fiction and a room with a zither.
Pattie is secretly the most terrifying character in all of Far Out There. At least, it USED to be a secret.
See? If I specifically call out the ways in which I did a bad job, I can claim it was all on purpose! Also, Pattie would make a good internet commentator. She hates everything.

Also also, SURPRISE WORLDBUILDING! We learn more and more about the Persean Confederation that keeps getting name dropped, AND a surprise call-back to that planet where Ichabod got called in to critique an art museum!
