NO get your mind out of the gutter, that little extended thingy in the 1st panel is where a corrosive comes from… These guys do a portion of their digestion externally, since many of the food items need to be softened up first. Unrelatedly, they are VERY territorial.
I’m sure you were all excited as I was about the fantastic Mars news yesterday :D It’s awesome that we get to be alive for some of the early exploration and confirmation of these theories! I know some of you were also impressed because the comic has addressed some of these points, but this research has been around for decades. (I will wait a few more months before confirming that the wildlife in this comic are based on a documentary sent from the future).
And more fanart :D I gotta share them because I get super thrilled every time I see this stuff, haha… This one by thatonepaperphoenix and another by Skippercifer. If you’d like your art linked here, just tag it “Mare Internum” or PM me, and I’ll throw it up in a future update :]
Also, gonna update the Facebook soon with vote incentives from the past… well, 2 months, I forgot to update last month. I’ll have those up soon. For today’s bonus art: some lineart, since this page is full of slamdust.
And now, back to working on Patreon rewards! If you pledged in Aug for a September reward, you’ll be receiving it today or tomorrow. New reward slots will be opening up in October, as well as info about the newly unlocked monthly wallpapers.
Thank you again for keeping this comic updating, and of course thank you for reading.
