    Spa Daze

    Comic written and illustrated by Ryan Reid

    Panel 1: A seemingly limitless space. GIANT EGGS float in an unseen grid formation above a dark floor, far into the distance.

    Panel 2: CRACK!! ROBOT’S LEG breaks through one of the eggs! Shell falls everywhere.

    Panel  3: ROBOT sits, breathless, on the floor beneath the GIANT EGG he just escaped from. He’s surrounded by EGG GOOP and shell bits.

    Panel 4: FRANCIS wanders in, with a GIGANTIC SQUID THING on her head. She’s enjoying a SMOOTHIE through a VERY SQUIRRELLY STRAW. She is very relaxed.

    ROBOT

    Where have you been?

    FRANCIS

    Hot squid massage. Smoothie Bar. You?

    Panel 5: The dark nothing between time and space.

    ROBOT (Voice over)

    I awoke lost and alone - traversing the dark nothing between time and space. My younger self showed me all the ways we could avoid this inevitable future, and we laughed and laughed. Then I lost $200 playing billiards against the Horseshoe Nebula, ate a light lunch, and took a short nap.

    Panel 6: ROBOT and FRANCIS retire to the SMOOTHIE BAR.
