Search and Research #115

Ok, this is the one. I have to admit that even though this story line is a little weird, and doesn't really have much to do with normal library business, I got really excited about drawing Future SCOM. Specifically the shot of him leaving his little flying ship dock and flying free. There is a lot more features that he has when he is docked (which makes it a necessary thing to draw) but who wants to be bogged down with all those accoutrements all the time?

In the interest of full disclosure, I did indeed base Future SCOM's flying base on an upside down Starship Enterprise. I spent a lot of time when I was younger drawing the Enterprise in various space battles. I even acquired many Star Trek model kits when I was younger specifically to check the accuracy of my drawings of different ships from different angles. I'm pleased that I was able to put all those hours of my earlier life to good use for the purpose of everyone's entertainment. Enjoy!

I think this is a great strip. Good job mixing the black and the gray, and using backgrounds! Also, flying SCOM is awesome!
