The Futurists – Rebel

Rebel

From Mike’s Desk

I pulled out my copy of Snarfquest here the other day. It has always been one of my favorite comics. Drawn by Larry Elmore, it originally ran in Dragon (magazine). Elmore is today perhaps best known as having done the cover paintings for the original Dragonlance novels written by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman. This strikes me as sort of odd, because the Snarfquest comics are really fantastic.

Beyond the comic’s cult following, other role-playing oriented comics such as Knights of Dinner Table are perhaps better known. The difference between Snarfquest and Knights of the Dinner Table is Snarfquest can be understood outside of a role-playing context. And yet, for those familiar with role-playing games, the comic captures the magic of actual role-playing. As Roger E. Moore points out in the 1987 compilation of the book, “I particularly like Snarfquest because it reads like a parody of a typical fantasy role-playing game, showing how great ends come from small beginnings, with lots of weird stuff in between.”

Greetings Futurelads and lassies! Do we have some mail this week! Rachel from Wilmington writes,

“What’s with the Arthur link?” – Rachel

Rachel, that’s just a little inside joke on Thomas and Suzy’s parts! Here at The Bunker, to sum up the situation we’ve been saying: “how touching,” all week long! And guess what else, we heard from the queen herself, Seka! Referring to our Vega Pornbots, Seka writes,

“I thought this was very funny and is most likely to be in our very near future.” – Seka

The Futurists sure hope so! Be sure to check out Seka’s website. But be warned, it may not be work safe!

Salutations and thanks for reading! Here at Futurists HQ, which we fondly call the Bunker, we’re always cooking up ways for more Pornbots. Problem is we’re plum Bo Diddlely out of ideas! And how about that Bo Derrick? Is she a 10 or what! This is why we love getting mail! Be sure sure to keep your peepers peeled for next week’s comic when a grocery bag mishap befalls one of our beloved robots, and Thomas finally asks Suzy out! Way to go Tom-Cat!!!
