|An early comic I managed to find,|
back when Orbit first met Tyrone.
It doesn't help that I'm not exactly meticulous in keeping track of which days/months/years I've already gone through. In some cases, it's easier to just start later in a year, then work your way backwards. Since that involves breaking up narrative flow, I haven't dared to venture down that path.
The philosophical paradox of Theseus having all parts of the ship being replaced aside, Tyrone is already contemplating mutiny despite not knowing how to control a spaceship.
Even though this Sunday comic actually shows up a day earlier, I posted it here, because it segues into the next strip better than the last one.
Around her is where the last adventures of Orbit trailed off. From here, it's venturing into familiar uncharted territory.
I've already got a month's worth of Orbit strips all lined up and ready to go, but I hesitate to post them up too soon. I'd like to go back over the newspaper dates I've already covered, trying to find an elusive Hi & Lois comic possibly posted sometime between 1980-1987. That's a lot of pages to sift through.
