These first seven comics are repeats of strips published back in the summer of 2013 (hence the dates on the bottom).

The original idea--which lasted not even all seven of those strips--was to randomly select minifigs from my entire LEGO collection and then find a way to put them into a scene with a caption.

The minifigs, left to right:

A generic Space pirate, a reuse of the early 2000s Green Goblin. I like the mold, though it would be a touch better with some printing. Note the extreme laziness of reusing a Fireman torso--those things proliferate and you so rarely need more than even two.

A classic Space Police (first version) officer, albeit with a different head. I love the original Space Police, but they're from before my time, so my little collection has been assembled piecemeal from Bricklink: figs only, no sets.

The peasant kid is from the Kingdoms Joust set--awesome set; the last truly BIG (largest in its line) set I bought.

The Dragon Master has customised armour (spraypainted) and shield (a sticker). He was actually made over a decade ago as a character for a roleplay on His name was Elbadar and he was an antihero type good guy. Using him here as an evil archnemesis is somewhat amusing to me in that context.
