The Meaning of Life

Comic written and illustrated by Ryan Reid

Panel 1: ROBOT and FRANCIS search an alien landscape for something unknown. They seem quite determined.

Panel 2: Beautiful wild flowers surround them. It’s a very nice planet.

Panel 3: Their search ends in a stunning valley. Towering before them is the goddess CHAKKA OF AKONG. She is surrounded by swirling magic.

Panel 4

FRANCIS

Great Goddess Chakka of Akong, your wisdom knows no bounds! We are humbled to be in your presence!

ROBOT

We seek guidance!

Panel 5

CHAKKA OF AKONG

My knowledge is as deep and as wide as the Universe is infinite. What do you desire? The meaning of life? The secrets of the universe?

Panel 6

ROBOT

Nah, something much more important. We need directions to Galaxy Joe’s House of Noodles!

Panel 7: CHAKKA OF AKONG isn’t impressed with this request. Not even a little bit.

CHAKKA OF AKONG

Are you asking me, an immortal, all-knowing, higher being, for restaurant directions?!

Panel 8

FRANCIS

To be fair, they have the best noodles, and our map app couldn’t get a cyberweb connection out here.

ROBOT

Hold on Francis! I got a signal! Galaxy Joe’s - first left past the Gummy Nebula. Let’s ride!

Panel 9: CHAKKA OF AKONG is completely baffled by this entire chain of events.

CHAKKA OF AKONG

What is happening right now?!

Panel 10: ROBOT and FRANCIS blast off into space, once again on the trail of, apparently, lunch.

Panel 11: GALAXY JOE’S, home of the gigantic noodle bowl.

FRANCIS

What did she mean when she said she’d erase us from this plane of existence?

ROBOT

I don’t know, but it’ll be reflected in her Goddess review. 1 star. Short tempered. Would not idolize.
