Ensign Sue Must Die – Strips 18 & 19

Today Strip #19 of the regular Star Trek movie themed webcomic ‘Ensign Sue Must Die’ (by Clare Mosley and Kevin Bolk) is out, and we actually missed #18 so both of those are now available below, where we have more fun with Ensign Sue and the Mirror Universe, and Sue needing some comfort from poor Spock.

Is there only a limited number of these? I couldn’t help but notice that there’s a book for this. Are they going to continue even after they “run out” of the story?

Hmm, a story arc I see.

The comic strip is very professionally done!

These are really delightful.

Yeah these really are cool

Okay, so what happens when they kill her? Or is this some kind of Ben Kenobi-type thing where she haunts the computer?

They can’t kill her. That’s the problem. And ours.

I just noticed that Spock has a perfectly round head.

Skip any more episodes of my favorite Mary. Sue and its the agony. Booth for all of you! Just kidding! Thanks for doubling the fun guys

Ensign Sue has a very nice curvature to her buttocks in strip #2. Spock should just roll with it.

Losira has an interesting way with punctuation.

As much as I despise manga styled comic strips, I’ve got to say that this one’s quite funny at times.

I don’t get what the age range is for this?

I seem to be the lone person who doesn’t find this strip funny at all. The artwork is well done (if in a generic Garfield way), but the writing is woefully un-inspired.

#10 I’m a lousy typist. Just like Ensign Sue would be! And hey a good point came up. If the book has a limited issue of skits, being popular we may see Ensign Sue Vol 2 I hope. Don’t end it.
As for age appropriate, I carefully look over each skit and choose only the “family friendly” ones to share with my grandkids. So I think there is something for every one.

It’s no less funny than The Trek Life; THAT was an awful strip.

…boy i dont know…if it were drawn in more of a “Mad magazine” style, maybe the writing would better compliment the art. But as it is, it’s way more cute than funny. And “cute” is something I never, ever, want anywhere close to Star Trek.

I’ve read the book, the ending is pretty great.

Sadly, I don’t see how it could continue.

Hey never say never Spock came back from the dead. Data B4 is on the way back. So Ensign Sue will return

15. I agree. Trek Life wasn’t funny at all. Every strip had the Orion Slave Girl in it.

I thought this was ok. But set in the Terran Empire I just don’t know. But. A realy good Try.

No, #13, I’m totally with you.

I agree that the artwork is OK, if a bit childish, but the writing is atrociously bland.

The style of the artwork reminds me of Bill Watterson’s, for some reason. He was the cartoonist behind “Calvin & Hobbes,” one of the best comic strips ever written.

If I had my fantasy Trek cartoon team, it would a combination of Watterson’s wry sense of humor and Scott Adam’s knowledge or fanship of Trek. (Scott Adams is known for “Dilbert,” and has even acted in Babylon 5, as I recall.) Watterson can draw some very realistic cartoons, and he already has a penchant for making Calvin a spacefarer (in his guise as “Spaceman Spiff.”) Sadly, Watterson has been retired from cartooning for some time.

However, I also like the style seen here, in “Ensign Sue Must Die.” More, please.
