Oh, no…I sympathize with both the beast and his bride

That doesn’t make me trans, does it? Or bi? I want to be both the winged wild beast and the happy bookreader. I’m intensely envious of both lifestyles.

Wait, why does he soar into the night if he’s got that whole library right there? Maybe he’s visiting bookstores to stock up on new literature.

    If they develop a hive mind they could do both things at once. Sort of like the kids in “The Midwich Cuckoos” (the film version with Christopher Reeve was just before he had the accident).

  2. birgerjohansson says

    If he is soaring does that mean he can change into a winged morphology as well as into a terrestrial predator morphology? If he eats a Yautja, will he be able to be a Predator? So many questions.

    Kinda amusing that, only two posts ago (“I never thought I’d want people to stop sending me free books”) Sturgeon’s Law was referenced.

    (I know, it’s complicated)

    A link to the original would be nice. I’m always on the lookout for new webcomics for my daily read.

  5. birgerjohansson says

    I recognise the style of the artist.
    He/she publishes the comic in every issue of New Scientist .

    I wondering if he sleeps or reads.
    Maybe he collects books in the vain hope that they will accrue in value.
    I have a pristine copy of, “Cruel Shoes,” back when I thought Steve Martin was funny, oh so very long ago.
