Related Strips: #584: Who Can It Be Now?
Thanks to everyone who came out to visit me at Penguicon (and to everyone who came out to Penguicon and let me sucker them into buying a book, too). I had a great time, even though I mostly hid in my hotel room at night while all the poly sci-fi kids got there grooves on, working on this masochistically long, talky strip… and playing Civ 5 or Portal 2. (All work and no play makes Gordon a dull boy…)
Duncan and Angie are back! And Duncan actually talks a little more this time! (He's a quiet guy.) And Angie has a new haircut!
I hope you all had a great weekend. I'm going to sleep forever now.

The Wachowskis are back to make original sci-fi stories with Jupiter Ascending, starring Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis, and Sean Bean (among others). There are a couple of thematic similarities with The Matrix here (normal person waking up to find out they’re special, for one), but I dunno. It looks pretty?
The film opens July 25, 2014.
Here’s the official description, courtesy Coming Soon:
Jupiter Jones (Kunis) was born under a night sky, with signs predicting that she was destined for great things. Now grown, Jupiter dreams of the stars but wakes up to the cold reality of a job cleaning toilets and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine (Tatum), a genetically engineered ex-military hunter, arrives on Earth to track her down does Jupiter begin to glimpse the fate that has been waiting for her all along – her genetic signature marks her as next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos.
