Secret of the Beaufort Sea – Page 15on June 5, 2012 at 12:01 am
It’s all fun and games until the boy adventurer is knocked unconscious and submerged in arctic, freezing water. That’s right; things are not looking good for Joe, daredevilers, and that’s just the way I like it!
“What?” You say, “That’s horrible!”
Well, y’see, if we’ve done our job correctly then at this point you’ve built up a wee bit of affection for Joe and the rest of the Daredevils. And, now it’s time to reward your investment in our characters by putting them through the ringer and keeping you on the edge of your seat. It’s the author/reader social contract, and we plan to deliver.
Mark my words, things only get worse from here.
Just like it says on the tin, NEXT WEEK you will come face-to-face with Captain Custer, and nothing will ever be the same! RSS it! Whew…
Well, it’s now officially June (time flies and all that), which means another round of voting at topwebcomics.com. Be a pal, and throw us a vote here and there if you dig the Daredevils.
As always, make sure to like us and/or follow us to be kept in the loop. Also, do yourself a favor and mosey on over to our blog every Sunday for exclusive behind the scenes material and more gifs than you can shake a stick at.
Seriously, thanks for reading guys…
Anyways, till next week!
Hey; just how long am I supposed to hold my breath? I’m turning purple!
8,927 minutes from my mark….
The Captain is DEFINITELY a werebear of some sort. Or wereweasel? Or maybe he just has really, really horrible morning/afternoon breath.
First you question a direct order and now this malarkey…Are you trying to get my ire up, son?
Well, mission accomplished. I’ve got my eye on you Private Guiles.
Just so long as his terrible secret isn’t that he’s actually George Armstrong Custer, the United States Army’s youngest brevet Major Moron-excuse me I mean General, I’ll be okay with it . . . And we already have a Were-Whale, that pretty much tops any other kind of were in my opinion. Say, where I leave that harpoon ?
ABSOLUTELY no relation.
I hope there’s an auxiliary control somewhere….if the captain’s out then who the heck is keeping the ship from pulling a deep sea lawn dart if you get my drift.
I think MalikTous (below) answered this question better than I ever could.
But, I will say this: NEXT WEEK you will see the bridge and get a much clearer picture of how The Custer operates!
Forget holding your breath, just suck rubber! (This boat does have compressed breathing air system for firefighting, right?) And usually there’s an officer in command in the conn with a helmsman and planesman (or two, for bow and stern planes) and possibly a ballastman, whose jobs it is to keep the boat trimmed and neutrally buoyant and maintain stable depth. In the original Gato boats the E-men and diesel men managed all operations of submerged and surface propulsion and battery management; commands were relayed via engine order telegraph and sound powered phone (or PA speaker) from the conn. The CO. XO, Navigator, and Engineering officers usually stood shifts at the conn.
Joe can’t go this early! He’d have to turn into Ghost-Joe. Oh no.

wait, what? This is the last page to date? I had got used to just jumping to the next page without waiting a week, damn catching up with the current page >.<
So… I guess that if I want to keep following the underwater adventures without having to wait, I'll just have to build a new submarine. And get enough supplies. And a crew. And a good Doctor. And a captain. Ah, bloody hell, what I'm talking about? By the time I finish building The Andarilho, the next page would already be up
Welcome aboard. Glad to hear you are enjoying it, man!
Fear not, a new page will be up in less than 7 hours!
