At least this time it's not the Commander's fault.
Oops
Guess who forgot to upload a comic again!

Bet you can't!
What?
You thought she was just walking around the station listening to music all day? Of course not. They translate speech and also help her hear members of other species that would normally be outside of range.

Also they allow her to mute people.

And listen to music, sometimes.
More Guest Comic Goodness
And here it is, the second of two guest comics by James Miller of Dreamers Ink! The first went up last Friday, so if you missed that just hop back three pages and take a look.

Also, go and check out Dreamers Ink: http://dreamersink.com/toons/index.php

Go! Go do it!
I found the missing comics!
I didn't fix the broken computer but I found a backup of the folder with the missing guest comics in! Hooray!

This is the first of two guest comics by James Miller of Dreamers Ink. I was having some technical problems at the time. If I remember correctly my laptop I used to created the comic back then had temporarily packed in, leaving me in a bit of pickle. James stepped in and gave me two awesome guest comics to hold me over until my computer was back on its metaphorical feet.

I've decided to split them up this time round and slightly tweak the page order of the next story arc, so Monday's and Wednesday's comics next week will be regular Commander Cottontail pages and the next Dreamers Ink guest page will be up on Friday.

In the meantime go check out Dreamers Ink: http://dreamersink.com/toons/index.php

Missing Comics
Apologies for the missing comic on Monday. I have... good reasons? Reasonable reasons?

So as you may or may not know these comics are OLD. The original Commander Cottontail site went down, I lost everything on the site and have been uploading my locally stored copies of the comics since. Eventually I'll catch up and start posting new ones, but for now these are the old ones.

Well, I went to upload all of this week's comics over the weekend and two of them were missing, specifically Monday and Wednesday's ones. I think I know what happened. The drive I have the comics on was created from my old Windows laptop and I think at one point the laptop went down temporarily and I had to do the comics for a couple of days on my G5 Mac desktop. Problem is my G5 Mac desktop doesn't currently work. I can fix it. I'm pretty sure of that, but with overtime on at work this week, I've not had much chance to work on it and my first attempted fix has resulted in it going from not working properly to... not powering up...

I can fix it.

I'm pretty sure I can fix it.

In the meantime here's the page formerly known at page 364. Luckily this section of the comic doesn't have any big story stuff going on, no broken transporters, crashed shuttles or main characters getting shot, so a little playing with the page order until I can fix the desktop is no big deal and I have no plans for this weekend, so if I can't get it sorted before then I have two days to sort the thing out.

I can totally fix it.
Yes, yes. I know...
I really did outdo myself with the art this time.
Sorry...
Sorry the comic's late. I got a bit distracted last night and forgot to upload the comic.

I'd promise not to do it again, but you wouldn't believe me and neither would I.
Names
Most of the names in Commander Cottontail have some kind of logic behind them. Usually it involves picking words related to the characters and sticking them in Google translate to find cool sounding translations of them.

Grafschender is one of those names. What makes Grafschender special is the fact I can never ever ever remember how to spell it. Seriously every time you see the word Grafschender on this page? Copy and pasted from the file name.
Two hundred and ninety three pages ago...

Kittens are dangerous.
Do not let them near cannons.
Oh hey a reference!
Look! Look! I made a movie reference!

If you don't know what it is then I'm not going to tell you.
Fifi.
For some reason when Mega Bloks made their Hello Kitty line they produced two different heads for Fifi, one with her normal red triangular nose and one with the round yellow nose used for characters like My Melody and HK herself.

Why they did this I have no idea. I've never seen her with that style nose anywhere outside of the Mega Bloks line. Some kind of mistake that somehow made it into production? How do you give a character the wrong nose and not realise until you've already produced tens of thousands of the things? I don't know, but I do know that it left me with two figures of the same character, from two different sets who clearly couldn't be used for the same role because they had two different noses.

And so the Alliance Captain's yellow-nosed, almost identical cousin was born.

But seriously, how did they give her the wrong nose?
Sylvanian Families / Calico Critters
Sylvanian Families are great. Almost as great as Lego. Except in the US and Canada where they're called 'Calico Critters' for some reason. Why Calico? Does the fuzzy Commander up there look like a multi-coloured cat or plain-woven unbleached cotton to you? Seriously, what's with the names people and why do you keep pluralising the word Lego?
Research
I actually did research, real research for this and the previous comic, looking up different type of medication for Dr Mediocris to prescribe the Commander and if I remember rightly what she says kind of makes sense? I mean I'm not exactly sure what the side effects of and treatment for getting shot with a futuristic energy weapon of unknown type and power are, but the stuff she lists is maybe plausible... ish?
Helps if I upload a comic.
Oops.

Again.

Better late than never?
I wonder what she could be angry about...
I wonder what it could be...

I wonder....

Medical Office
Mediocris' medical office is one of my favourite sets. I really need to come up with reasons to use it more.
Bad Idea.
The next strip is not titled Bad Idea.

I am very disappointed with myself.
Oops
Kind of forgot to upload again.
Better late than never?
