#40 The Smell of Burnt Hair and the Apocalypse

Airbrush painting of fire-eyed tiki shaman for #40 The Smell of Burnt Hair and the Apocalypse

“H….E….Y…………….A….RE………Y…O…U……I..N……..TH….E…RE….?” It was a voice from someplace far away from where I am now. It’s so peaceful here. Time has stopped completely and yet it’s still too soon to leave. There is a quiet singing in the air that always comes from someplace just out of reach. It must be the angels, the mournful dead, […]

#33 Salad Bowl Bob and the Murder of Spatula City

Android face surrounded by code for #33 Curse of the Salad Bowl Spatulas

If I did abduct myself, this is probably what it would look like. We are currently dropping into Kremeth in the landing saucer after leaving the Diagonal22 in orbit. Two monsters are sitting across from me while Cole is flying this bird. It almost feels for a moment like Walt and Steve are some kind […]

#30 Earth is the Place You Visit When You’re Awake

Glowing fractal bubbles for #30 Earth is the Place You Visit When You're Awake

We have no idea where Dr. Sophia went but we still need to find Shadow before heading back down to the Biolab. Impossible questions are raging through my head as we check the rooms on the way back to the elevator. What a mind-bogglingly insane predicament I’ve found myself in. If this is all real […]

#29 Hellfire and Damnation Lasers

Huge fiery explosion for #29 Hellfire and Damnation Lasers

Oh no. I can’t move. The shadowy shapes are standing over Cole as he sleeps. They have some sort of glowing rod that they are pressing on his spine. His body starts to shake like he is being electrocuted. Have to wake up. HAVE TO WAKE UP! One of the shadow shapes turns to look […]

#28 A Portal to Someplace Else

Red laser light for #28 A Portal to Someplace Else

Having a giant gray owlman tell you that you were chasing a ghost that turned out to be real is a hard thing to process all at once. I could see her clear as day but nobody else could. What was I following if it wasn’t the girl I carried out of those woods? Were […]

#27 An Accidental Game of Hide and Seek

A blue green multiverse orb for #27 An Accidental Game of Hide and Seek

There is something deeply disconcerting about someone who is currently in a state of shock. The man we found on the roof looks like he’s seen something completely mind shattering. He is unable to communicate with us at this point which further contributes to the already disturbing atmosphere hanging around this place. Something is fundamentally […]

#26 I Turned Around and He Just Fell Out of the Sky

A misty forest for #26 He Just Fell Out of the Sky

Cole mentioned pancakes, the door did its whooshing trick again, and everything started spinning. A tremendous pressure was suddenly in the center of my forehead as vivid images began streaming like a television set in my mind. Running through an alien wilderness trying to find someone who is missing. The sound of yelling. A feeling […]

#25 How to Defend Yourself With a Spatula

A ninja holding a spatula menacingly for #25 How to Defend Yourself With a Spatula

“Did that just happen? Minivan spaceship monks?” questioned Cole who was now standing beside me looking quite stunned. “I think so. I can’t believe I just won something so huge. My luck used to be terrible. And who do you call when you need custom purple velvet spaceship interiors?” I replied floundering under the weight of […]

#23 The Great Cosmic Pinball Machine in the Sky

Pinball bumpers for #23 Great Cosmic Pinball Machine in the Sky

Walt must have carried me all the way to the Biolab because I am awakened by a series of concerned squawks from my new best friend Shadow. He appears to have almost doubled in size since yesterday. As I sit up to investigate this curious new development I’m reminded of the evening’s events thanks to a […]

#22 A Curious Case of Garden Gnome Rescue

A smoking garden gnome for #22 A Curious Case of Garden Gnome Rescue

“HEY! Wake up! We’ve got to get back to the ship,” said a shadowy outline who was now shaking me. “Globba looba naa,” I reply before realizing that my mouth no longer worked correctly. Tiny daggers of light are attempting to pry off the top of my skull in an exquisite pain orgy that could […]
