This is so exciting omg

And also, love the use of lineless panels in this story. I'm in awe of how many visual tools you manage to flawlessly incorporate in this story!

I just realized that Strelka is a Border Collie, right? Her green fur kinda threw me off, but looking at her head on in the last panel made me realize that her forehead had that Border Collie point.

If this was established a while ago, then I'm not paying attention very much. XP Sorry!

Seconding #8, and the sight of Acheff and Hector wheeling along on their suitcase while everyone else is PowerWalking along just makes me laugh.

The stakes are high for their company; I wonder what other kinds of conflicts are going to appear once they make it up to space...

I'm also still not sure WHAT they're doing. All I know is that it's a competition and that it involves antique spacecraft.

Am I the only one who would love a hi-res version of that last panel? Awesome, awesome, awesome. Hope 2012 is treating you right, Zach!

Modern clothes for quadrupeds use a variety of interesting methods to enrobe their owner. These neo-space-age suits use microcilla--similar to what's in your nose--to rise up around Strelka after she positions her legs inside of them. Microprocessors and miniature motors the likes of which I can't even comprehend handle anything else, like zippers.

Anon 3: Strelka has special gloves that give her thumbs. They're readily apparent when she first crawls out from under that machine on page 14. You can see the thumb attachment again (also not very well, but well enough) on the bottom of page 15.

It reads extremely well and the splicing of panels of everyone getting dressed with the conversation is literary gold, fluid, and was exciting!

But how did Strelka get the suit on without opposable thumbs?

Yesss, suit up and walk in a line! I love it, even more so when I realized everyone has their own means of locomotion.
