    40 days later: “no one has noticed all the cardboard cutouts of the captain spread around the ship. The plan is moving along nicely.”

    • Panel 5: The cardboard cutout experiences distress at the prospect of having to climb stairs.

      • Matt [in Middletown]

        “Why are there stairs in here?!” The cutout says, startling a nearby crewmember.

        • Problem solved.

            “Don’t worry Captain Cutout, your crew will assist you!”
            Lol, we are terrible..

            There is a distinct level of serious business present in this comment section.

          • I might point out that in five years, we have seen laughter exactly once in Westward. And it was unnerving.

          • Sorin Braveheart

            If that is indeed the case than we are in urgent need of unnervingly forced laughter. no good story is without some degree of humor in it, forced or otherwise.

          • Oh, there’s definitely humor in Westward. It’s just that the characters tend to take themselves very seriously.
