Disturbing Galactic Mergers

Lonnehart on June 6, 2010

This was originally going to be a pic of the Andromeda and Milky Way galaxies, with the Andromeda galaxy being the “aggressor”. Then I found out my drawing skills were too inadequate to draw the galaxy properly, and I wasn't going to either paste actual pics of the galaxies into the comic. And I wasn't just going to put an “Andromeda Galaxy” label onto the thing. So I just went with two random galaxies. Oh, well… I still think it could've been funnier with the Andromeda and Milky Way galaxies instead.

Our galaxy and Andromeda are due to merge 5 billion years from now. We may not be around for it then. But if we still are, we won't be around for long afterwards. Who knows what'll happen when the collision finally happens…
