The truth by scythemantis The truth by scythemantis
[link]

A dumb one I thought up years ago and needed to finally get out of my system.

I still dislike my comic art but have once again failed to try something different.

Panel four probably should have been the ending, it's a little funnier that way...or is it?

I almost specified "proctologist ghosts," what with the probing and all, which made the final revelation more bizarre, but also felt more juvenile. Did I make the right choice?

Yeah I tried to make it the classic "grey" but in a slightly distinct-looking way :)

I feel like this is painfully obvious advice and I'm a moron for saying it, but what the heck: If you wanna try a different style, maybe practice trying to draw in the styles of other artists!

Sometimes I doodle for a while in different styles I like, and sometimes new things stick that way, but I really should try to make comics in drastically different ways...I should do some without even solid lines.

haha your comics are great!
Now the question is what kind of science experiment would involve probing people, flying saucers, crop circles, and abducting cows...

The most fantabulous, splendiferous, greatest experiment in the whole wide universe that all scientists are secretly destined to participate in for all eternity.

It's too complicated for us to understand but it has a lot to do with toads.

i like "scientist ghosts" for the six-panel version, but "proctologist ghost" would have been better for a four-paneler.

I think "scientist ghost" works far better than "proctologist ghosts." It's the last group you'd expect to be aliens or ghosts given how stereotypical SCIENCE tends to dismiss those two things. And I like how probing random people in an inexplicable flying craft just raises more questions, despite the scientist ghost's lengthy explanation and the comic's title.

Granted scientists could conceivably (well, in a comic, at least) invent a way to live on after death and create floating crafts and whatnot. Proctologists don't have that ability, and instead would just seem so hell-bent on looking up people's bum's they somehow defied death to do it, which is fun in it's own way.

I wouldn't think that a vaguely humanoid physiology would be that rare, it seems like it uses the least number of limbs while still being practical (two appendages for moving, two for manipulation)

That's probably where the similarities would end, though.

I like "scientist ghost" over "proctologist ghost". It actually makes the anal-probing joke even weirder. Especially if that's the ghost of, say, a volcanologist or a marine biologist specializing in deep-sea echinoderms. No matter what you studied in life, when tou die it's naked-fat-guy anal probes forever.

Mind you the idea of there being a secret afterlife only proctologists get into is also pretty amusing. I always knew the path to eternal life was through the anus.

I like to think maybe all the scientist ghosts are in on the same ultimate experiment and it just happens to involve anal probing for whatever reason.
