Presented with no further context, here are @HowardTayler and @Schlock conversing on Twitter:
Just finished the Maxim 45 line art. @Schlock hasn't been outside the hull in a while. It feels good. — Howard Tayler (@howardtayler) October 22, 2014
@howardtayler Says the guy who isn't actually outside the hull. — Sergeant Schlock (@Schlock) October 22, 2014
@Schlock Technically, I AM. The whole ship is waaaay over there, and I am outside it. — Howard Tayler (@howardtayler) October 22, 2014
@howardtayler Okay, this picture? The hull doesn't have an inside or an outside. It's in pieces. I DO NOT LIKE YOUR ART, SIR. — Sergeant Schlock (@Schlock) October 22, 2014
@Schlock Oh, come on. You have your gun, and something to hold on to. I'm sure you'll be fine. pic.twitter.com/H2lGc0y2sy — Howard Tayler (@howardtayler) October 22, 2014
@howardtayler @howardtayler THAT IS NOT THE WHOLE PICTURE. THIS IS THE PART THAT MAKES ME NERVOUS: pic.twitter.com/fv36EfWsqp — Sergeant Schlock (@Schlock) October 22, 2014
@Schlock You put my name in that tweet twice. You only need to do it once. — Howard Tayler (@howardtayler) October 22, 2014
@howardtayler THAT WAS A DOUBLE-TAP. Now if you'll excuse me, I need to kill something and take its space-suit. — Sergeant Schlock (@Schlock) October 22, 2014

On Wednesday I promised that the slipcases were "sturdy and beautiful." Today (Friday) our advance copies arrived, and I can now show you the beauty that is Munitions Canister 2:
But what does it look like when filled? And am I willing to hold it in one hand while taking a photo with my other?
It looks like this! And no, no I am not.
I'm always a little nervous just before our advance copies arrive, even though I'm always thrilled by the quality we get from our printer. This run is no exception. I was nervous, and now I'm elated. Man, this stuff looks great.
