Home? Whose home will it be?
He could mean Mars, since he’s made it clear that he doesn’t expect to be able to return to Earth in its current state. Earlier, Ben made a similar statement: “Save humanity, and go home.” (http://westwardcomic.com/strips/0980/) It’s worth noting that he didn’t say, “Save the world,” though that *could* have been what he meant. Just prior, he was involved in hatching a plan using Westward’s Escherspace engines that he believed could save or at least preserve the Earth (http://westwardcomic.com/strips/0974/), but Santana seemed intent on dissuading him from going through with it.
Oh, gosh! Only a few hours away now!
Can you contain the excitement?!
The excitement was slightly contained when, upon launch, I discovered a fatal flaw in the strip navigation structure. But it seems to be working now! This website will explode if not properly contained–much like a toaster.
Maybe it was a problem with one of the Internet’s communication satellites. All that cold space air seeping inside and freezing stuff…
Ha ha! Actually it was a logistical flaw that I never caught until it was causing a problem. The good news is that it can sometimes be easier to get out of a PHP rut than a continuity error.
