The Mummy's Sabbatical, Week Two!

There are now enough strips that you can actually use the navigation buttons! LUXURIOUS!
Also, many technical issues have been resolved with the website, thanks to my clever and generous pal, Duane Wilson.

The Mummy's Sabbatical, Week One


The first strip with ACTUAL STORY CONTENT is now online!

We're still having some trouble with the website. Right now, "rocketmummy.com" is nothing but dead internet, and you have to go to "rocketmummy.com/comics" to actually see the strip.

It'll get fixed. Eventually. Once computers advance enough to respond to dark looks and exasperated sighs.

EDIT: Fixed? I think? For now, at least.

The Mummy's Sabbatical

A placid campus is suddenly rent by the screaming launch of Antique Rocketry! Thus Setka (former Pharoh, Professor of Dynamic Egyptology and Romantic Poetry) and his graduate assistant Francesca (former girls’ soccer team, promising young Frankenstein) explode into nerve-searing, soul-flummoxing adventure in the monster-rotted depths of our benighted Solar System! Armed with Ancient Knowledge, Timeless Pluck, and some snappy Contemporary Fashions, our dauntless heroes face viperous draculas, abominable lagoon creatures, odorous opera phantoms, towering colossi, and other slavering enemies of all that is good and decent in their quest uncover the devastating secrets of the Ancient Astronauts!

It's a webcomic by Benito Cereno (Writer of such comics as Tales from the Bully Pulpit, Hector Plasm, The Tick, Invincible Presents, and Guarding the Globe. Freelance classicist. Professional Christmas enthusiast.) and myself (Doodler, teacher of doodling. Comics include Pulpatoon Pilgrimage, The Preposterous Voyages of IronHide Tom, and O. Henry’s The Gift of the Magi.).

Updating Fridays for the foreseeable.

Bochen

This is my kid's D&D character: a 5th-level spell-casting griffon named Bochen. I love this guy for the same reason my kid is starting to cool on him—he's taken a lot of damage and has the scars and missing limbs to prove it.
