After #392, I got quite a few people wondering why Death OBGBAMRRAT needs a helmet.

My answer is quite simple.

So he can breathe, stupid.

;-)


Several people have pointed out that if, according to #389, the rover's top speed is a mere 0.18 km/h, then it appears to be moving way too fast in this strip. Okay, okay, you got me. When I was making this strip I just thought it'd be cool to have the rover wander off into the distance. I didn't stop to think it would be going too fast.

Er, sorry... scratch that. I mean: Martians naturally talk very slowly, so much more time is elapsing in this conversation than you think from your Earthling conversational speed perspective. Yeah, that's it.


2013-02-01 Rerun commentary: The other explanation is that the rover has evolved and can now move a lot faster.

Hey, you're reading a comic with a skeleton wearing a helmet on Mars. Anything is possible.
