Slightly delayed Smithson strip is now up!

Image

This week in Smithson: Micki has rescued DJ Scooter from his sad reverie near the north campus wall, and brought him back to his rightful place in front of the mic. But will she figure out what's on Scooter's mind besides playlists and ironic pop commentary? And is there really a record called "Mostly Madrigals"? We suspect the artist is making some of this up.

New strip today at the usual time!

Image

This week (er, again) in Smithson: Micki has Scooter safely back at the radio station, and is trying to find out what's bothering him. What could make Scooter - Mod heartthrob, heir to the Tanchibi Stationery Concern empire, and witty purveyor of pop-culture commentary -- lose his mantle of cool?

This week in Smithson: Scooter has broken up with his girlfriend, Blackbird, and is down in the dumps. Micki is startled to see a different side of Scooter. (And the artist finally gets to reference his favorite sitcom in a strip title.) Could this be a new development in Micki's love life? ...

Yes, it's a day late again! The color work on this one was killing me.

Image

New strip today: "Maybe Think Of Me Once In Awhile". Yes, another reference to WKRP. I miss that show.

This week in Smithson: Micki's gleeful stroll around the campus has taken a chilly turn: she's stumbled across a midnight meeting of the senior members of 23 Skidoo. They're gathered in the Smithson Shakespeare Garden. And they're not talking sonnets ...

Belated post (the strip went up as usual on Thursday):

Image

This week in Smithson: Micki has stumbled across a secret meeting of 23 Skidoo - the campus a capella group and (as few students and some faculty know) black-magic organization. They're talking plots and conspiracies. And Micki - hiding behind a tree close by - has just stepped on a twig.

This week in Smithson:

Chuck and Micki sprint through the forest, in the hopes of escaping 23 Skidoo.

I kind of like posting about several strips at once, so I think I'll keep that up for awhile. Three new strips since the last post:

Image Image Image

Chuck and Micki make a clean getaway in "Kept in the Dark" and "Flash! Aaaah!", and then we shift scenes momentarily in "Keep Your Eye on the Ball, Part 1".

In other news: Smithson can now be reached by the easier-to-remember URL, www.smithsoncomic.com.

Time to catch up with Smithson!

See Shaenon's "A Smithson Alphabet", parts one and two.

Image Image

Then Chapter 5 begins, with "Nurturing the Concept" and "Splash Page / Lunch of Champions, Part 1" That last installment's a two-pager, so be sure to click the Next link to see 'em both.
