This looks like a very rural setting. I guess the nearest coffee shop is very far away.

WHUD is an appropriate sound for dropping a pork roast or flank steak onto the kitchen counter but then again it would not being going all that fast.
Maybe a WHUMP is a bit more meaty sound?

What would be the correct  onomatopoeia [pl] for a 68kg bag of mostly water hitting various solid and semi solid surfaces at speed?

Noononononono. Whud is the noise that giant hammer makes.
Well, the creator is with Pilchard. At least on this occasion.

Right. Which makes an above-ground silo the perfect place to hide a super-secret missile, because nobody would ever suspect a thing.

It worked in the original James Bond novel, Moonraker (which was nothing like the movie).

So, was there supposed to be a new strip today?

Also, according to his Twitter Jeph went to bed early last night because he has a bad cold (like everyone else in Massachusetts at the moment, it seems). So he may have just been feeling too crappy to post AG last night. Give him a few hours, I expect we'll see it by this afternoon.

So, it appears that the Traveller has come! Or possibly a tourist.

I'm thinking that whatever travel means that Blue used was far from a dead cert.

I feel like there's way too many possibilities to wonder about that right this second.

1) He might have telepathic abilities that let him pick up languages from native speakers.
2) He may have a purpose in traveling from... wherever... to the current setting and was able to learn the language ahead of time.
3) They could be reacting more to the outburst itself, than what he's actually saying. We may be getting it translated and the other characters will just be staring with their heads tilted as he tries to communicate verbally what his reason for being there is.

I did think of this option but thought it unlikely as comics usually put "<>" around words said in a foreign language.

I have not yet been hooked by this comic, even though I kinda like the artwork so far. I find the contrast between Jack's uncool lines and his otherwise pretty cool appearance distracting. Still, I remain hopeful :) One day this will be an incredible fantasy-scifi comic that'll set the bar for all other webcomics in the genre :o or it'll just be hella fun :)
