FOR SCIENCE by Blitzkrieg1701 FOR SCIENCE by Blitzkrieg1701
At long last, Part Three is done! For those of you who who are new to the sag of a Girl and Her Alien, check out Alien Invaders FROM SPACE [link] and ALIEN AUTOPSY [link] to catch up.

The last comic focused mainly on Becky, so I wanted to give Gilb some time in the spotlight again... unfortunately for him.

In my original plan for this comic, the only other character was going to be Becky's Dad, since he'd already been introduced. But I worried that a bespectacled mad scientist single Dad would look a little too much like Professor Membrane, thus mad scientist Mom was added. AND THANK GOD, because she turned out to be WAY more fun to draw than mad scientist Dad ever was.

Another thing that got changed, for weirder reasons, was the ending. Originally, the last panel was supposed to be Gilb clinging to Becky when she got home, and that seemed fine... until I drew the panel where she LEAVES. See that sad look? It was intended to just be her moping because she can't play with her new alien all day, but a much more creepy interpretation crept up on me as I drew: that she KNEW Gilb was going to get experimented on all day and was powerless to stop it. Aside from being WAY darker than I ever intended, that totally went against everything that happened in the previous comic. Thus, I threw in an extra panel of Becky going on a roaring rampage of adorable revenge, just so you everyone knows that this WILL NOT STAND.

...oh, and by the way: No, I don't know what happened with that squid, sock and rubber ball. Judging from Mom and Dad's expressions, I don't think we WANT to know.

(after falling off the face of the Earth I have computer & internet again, so after getting up to date with Far Out There I started out on Conventional Wisdom and found the links to this....) So! Since no one else has mentioned this, what I especially like here is that they tested both catsup and ketchup. It's good to know that Gilb is not allergic to either (though I'm sure he would have preferred not to have had the tests done at all).

Also, you set it up so a phrase like "adorable revenge" seems so reasonable that I almost didn't notice it. ;-}}

Here's hoping Becky doesn't have to clean it :)

Poor Gilb... I'd hide him in my backpack and take him to school. Good thing Becky stood up for him!

Not to be tossing spoilers out, but you just successfully guessed what happens in part 4! (if I can ever get around to finishing it, that is)

I like how the dad's "Science" button changes in every panel. Everyone in this comic is very cute. (Though the dad just look, well, like a mad scientist. ;) )
