Author comment: Several references to other comics here! The name "Slork" refers to the late 1960s/early 1970s iteration of the Dutch comic Sjors & Sjimmie in which it was the name of a yellow-furred alien robot animal with eyes on stalks; it has nothing to do with the creatures from the expanded Star Wars universe.
Our DJ's dialog in the final panel of course is a direct quote from Loxie & Zoot.
Last Friday, my laptop broke down. I've managed to route around the problem but it's been a bit of an inconvenience for many things that I do in my life. I may be slow to respond even compared to a normal day.

Fantastically fun page! :D

I was wondering if his female companion was uneasy while she was looking all around, but the way she whipped off her top and her happy expression say it all~!

That is very unfortunate regarding your laptop! I hope it can be repaired without too much trouble or expense.
