Not sure if this spit take really works.  I’ll work on them in the future.

Discussion (22)¬

  1. LordVargonius says:

    Looks good, but try splattering a little more upwards. In my experience, the spray tends to be a pretty even spread.

  2. SaylorA says:

    Worked for me. I realized what it was instantly. 🙂

  3. razord9 says:

    After so many years together, Shauna still manages to leave Bob breathless and thirsty for more.

  4. BrickVoid says:

    It works for me, although it probably should’ve obscured his mic a little more, as suddenly spraying liquid out of your mouth does tend to have it shoot upwards and outwards a lot! 😀

    • BrickVoid says:

      Also, Shauna should probably be looking at him whilst he’s doing it, that smile on her face is just too creepy for words! 😉

  5. PsihoKekec says:

    Afterall, love and marriage go together like wheel and carriage.

  6. Pyradonis says:

    For the first split-second I thought his cup was disintegrating. 😀

  7. MTB says:

    the spit is a little to round.

  8. DaveBro says:

    It might be enhanced by whiting out his eyes (I’m thinking in MS Paint), then putting smaller black circles to indicate widening / surprise.

    The actual spray works.

  9. Lime Green Medic says:


    And yeah, that spit-take works, but like Lord Vargonius and BrickVoid have mentioned, a little more upwards.

  10. Bird of Prey says:

    I was immediately able to to tell that that was supposed to be a spit take, even before reading the annotation. So, at least for me, it DID work.

  11. jatten says:

    I totally missed the spit, until I saw the commentary below the comic. I’m used to a rounded line indicating the trajectory of the spit, usually leading to the sound effect word, to indicate spits. Maybe you could see if that helps with comprehension?

    Hope it helps.

  12. nerdhoof says:

    I saw your comment about the spit take before the comic loaded. Spoiler! 😉

  13. Mike says:

    The spit take works but it’s a little foreshadowed by them never holding any drinks any other time.

  14. Warbeast says:

    That can’t be good for that console.

    Next on Lost in Space. How far will coffee send them.

    • BrickVoid says:

      With Shauna, the Chief Engineer who can turn a toaster into a warpdrive, right where they were originally headed! 😀 Maybe a little late, but in this comic, I’d expect anything Shauna is piloting to be pretty well-maintained! 😉

  15. hamof says:

    I had posted a comment pointing out the typo in the fifth panel, what happened to it?

  16. Hussar says:

    Legostar’s comment section: where intellectual discussion about size and shape of spit CAN happen.
