The GPF site will undergo routine, scheduled maintenance this Thursday, June 27th, from 10pm to midnight EDT (2am to 4am UTC on Friday the 28th). A two-hour window has been scheduled for this event, but it will hopefully not take that long. During this maintenance, the site will not be available and will appear offline. Due to the timing, there is a chance that Friday's scheduled comic update may be delayed. We apologize in advance for this inconvenience.

[[Outside the army base, a man (identified as "Pete" in the strip) is talking to two other men about something he saw.]]
Pete: I'm telling you guys~!! The thing flew right over my shed!!
Man 1: Yeah~!! A FLYING SAUCER!! Right!!
Man 2: We believe you, Pet!! Heh heh~!!

[[A woman runs up to them, gesturing to the base behind her.]]
Woman: Guys~!! There's something GOOFY going on over at the army base!!

Man 2: Goofy?!?!
Woman: Yeah!! The place is on high alert ~ and crawling with extra BRASS and guys in BLACK SUITS and~

Woman: I heard some take around town that it has something to do with some kind of strange SAUCER-SHAPED CRAFT that landed out in the desert!!

[[Man 1 and Man 2 exchange stunned looks.]]

Man 2: [to Man 1] You don't think~!!

[[We see Emily and Flavoura standing nearby, listening to the conversation with worried looks on their faces.]]
