2010.08.05 Two points: First, I'm not at all happy with that flight-suit design; it's a little too Buzz Lightyear-looking to me. And, I'm still working out how to make the wings fold up, or otherwise get out of the way when not in use, but in a way that doesn't make them overly complex and fragile. This particular jet-pack just detaches from the back of the suit completely-- simple, but that makes it a pain to reattach without assistance. The setup will continue to evolve, and I want to work towards some sort of full-body armored suit. Not quite Iron Man, but close. Something like this, perhaps (although those wings do look emdelicate).
Second: Click here if you didn't catch the reference in the third panel. Skip to about 2:20 if you're impatient.
On a related note: If I had thought of this a lot sooner, instead of just last week, I might've made enough money to quit my job and we'd be a lot further along in the story by now:
Come to think of it, "We shall say 'Ni!' again to you, if you do not appease us" pretty much sums up the Tea Party to me. "emAnother Shrubbery!"
