Oh yeah, Talita's also huge.

  1. Jesus Christ, is it Dominic’s first day on the job? Or did the temp agency just dump them all there with no training lol
    Also, I see that restroom signage. Poor Talita, where does she use the toilet?

  2. While Talita is dealing with crew maintenance, I’ll report a teething problem with RSS setup. Comments feed works OK, but the main feed (https://www.runawaytothestars.com/comic/feed/) does not. Trying to open it causes a randomly named file to be downloaded instead. Very odd.

    1. Copy the link from the RSS button and paste it into the search bar for your reader. It should be https://runawaytothestars.com/comic/feed/

      1. OK, I’ve figured out the problem: somehow ‘comic’ had been omitted.
        Sorry to be a bother

        1. No prob. Honestly I am not an RSS user so I find it a little confusing myself

  3. sounds like some almost tragic accidents have happened to Dominic

  4. I love the little “& [Centaur]” added to the sign on the bathroom!

    1. wait where? I can’t see it

    2. Doesn’t look like a centuar. The non-human sophonts on the sign look more like an avian and a bug-ferret

      1. They might be talking about the image on the right side of the door, which zooming in seems to actually be a toilet symbol above a showerhead symbol

        1. Oh, I read that as a “wheelchair accessible” symbol. :0

  5. tminusfiveminutes

    Hope we get to see what a three-species toilet looks like sometime

  6. Itty bitty Talita in the first panel! So small!! So wee little!
    I love how you drea the door and the locking mechanism and the whooshing air has so much dramatic energy to it!
    Oh man there’s so much detail in the background! The vents for the dust. The human-avian-bug ferret waste room. All the little panels and labels that just exist everywhere irl and give so much realism to the space.
    Love the design of the space suits. Talita showing her human-socialized expressions there with the crew xD

    1. That’s not Talita, it’s a massive excavator. Talita is an aspect of one of the specks entering the building. For reference, the dome of the habitat is a kilometer in diameter.

  7. Talita has to completely babysit that group.
    Hey, what’s that script under english?

    1. if I recall correctly, it’s Avian
